* CaneFu: Like in the game, Jekyll attacks by poking with his cane. Also like in the game, it's utterly useless as a weapon and can't actually hurt enemies (represented in the trailer by him constantly missing whenever he tries to poke someone) except for one bee.
* ClassyCane: One Jekyll carries a cane seemingly for no other reason ''but'' to make him look classy, since he doesn't use it to help him walk and keeps it tucked under his arm at all times. This is one of the various things reasons the village people take umbrage with Jekyll is that he walks with a cane without it ever touching the ground.

* InNameOnly: While the trailer markets itself as a faithful adaptation of [[Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde the Robert Louis Stevenson novel]], it has about as much in-common with the book as [[VideoGame/DrJekyllAndMrHyde the game]] did (which the film is an actual adaptation of).
