* DumbMuscle: According to his tirade on books, he's happy about this. In reality however, he is actually a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]]: Gaston may be BookDumb, but he is cunning and can be pretty good at [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation]] when he really wants to. After all, he is the best hunter in the village and being a good hunter requires a great deal of smarts to track down your prey, predict its actions etc. His dumbest actions, like the way he proposes to Belle or takes the Beast on in a fistfight seem to be less actual stupidity and more his massive ego overshadowing his common sense.

Added DiffLines:

* SingleTargetSexuality: He could have (almost) any woman he wants. Heck, he could have a four-way with the Bimbettes if he really wanted to, and yet he only has eyes for Belle.

* {{Tomboy}}: Particularly by the standards of the film's setting. She's a literate, intelligent young woman in 18th century France, which makes her stand out among the villagers, especially given the traditional role of women during that time. She's also an outspoken feminist, a concept which wasn't really popular until the next century, and seeks to marry based on love rather than any sort of arrangement, standing up to resident misogynist Gaston, whose goal is to make her his lawfully-wedded wife, whenever they appear together in any scene. Oh, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking she's the first Disney Princess]] [[TomboyishPonytail to wear a ponytail]].
