[[folder: Cogsworth]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cogsworth.jpg]]
->''"Enchanted? Ha-ha ha-ha! Who said anything about the castle being enchanted? Ha-ha-ha..." *turns to Lumière* "It was you, wasn't it!"''
->'''Voiced by:''' David Ogden Stiers

The castle butler and Lumière's best friend, who has been transformed into a clock. He is extremely loyal to the Beast so as to save himself and anyone else any trouble, often leading to friction between himself and Lumière.
----
* AmbiguouslyGay: Cogsworth is involved in several questionable incidents, including an awkward moment with Maurice. Ever since David Ogden Stiers (the voice of Cogsworth) came out of the closet the effect has only amplified.
* ButtMonkey: Regularly suffers comic incidents. This is especially evident in the UpdatedRerelease, where his entire role in the added musical number seems to consist of nothing but him being picked on.
* TheChewToy: The harm is often for comical effect.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He's a ButtMonkey only just below Lefou and Maurice in terms of slapstick, but gets his own badass moment against Lefou when the latter tries to ''melt'' Lumière. He's also second-in-command of the castle, only second to The Beast himself. You don't obtain that sort of position by being completely incompetent.
* DeadpanSnarker: Because he's a blue oni, his remarks are often dry and sarcastic.
* FatAndSkinny: The fat to Lumiere's skinny, as you see when they transform back into their human forms, though taking place in an era in which extra weight was most often an indicator of wealth, most of the dynamics of the trope in present day are reversed.
* [[FourTemperamentEnsemble Five Temperament Ensemble]]: Melancholic
* JerkassHasAPoint: He comes off as a dick when he tells the others to stop being nice to Maurice when he stumbles in, and to kick him back out into the cold blizzard. However, as all the others seemed to have forgotten, being stuck in a cold blizzard is much better than the alternative: pissing off The Beast.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's pompous, grumpy and a bit rude, but he's really just as good-natured as Lumière and he can also be very helpful.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Cogsworth can be a real tight-ass (somewhat justified, considering the above points), but once he loosens up, he can act goofier than even Lumiere. He shows shades of this right at the end of ''Be Our Guest'', and during the castle invasion he goes completely nuts (and is clearly enjoying it).
* OfficialCouple: With the wardrobe in the stage version.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue Oni to Lumiere's Red; more focused on rules and structure and significantly less hammy.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Lumière. Good friends who are very different and often butt heads. Their relationship is said to mirror that of the two animators who drew their characters.

The castle butler and Lumière's best friend, Enchantress is an off-screen, minor character, but she is responsible for the events in the story, as revealed in the prologue that it is she who has been transformed into a clock. He is extremely loyal to curses Prince Adam as the Beast so as to save himself and anyone else any trouble, often leading to friction between himself and Lumière.Beast.



* AmbiguouslyGay: Cogsworth is involved in several questionable incidents, including an awkward moment with Maurice. Ever since David Ogden Stiers (the voice of Cogsworth) came out of the closet the effect has only amplified.
* ButtMonkey: Regularly suffers comic incidents. This is especially evident in the UpdatedRerelease, where his entire role in the added musical number seems to consist of nothing but him being picked on.
* TheChewToy: The harm is often for comical effect.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He's a ButtMonkey only just below Lefou and Maurice in terms of slapstick, but gets his own badass moment against Lefou when the latter tries to ''melt'' Lumière. He's also second-in-command of the castle, only second to The Beast himself. You don't obtain that sort of position by being completely incompetent.
* DeadpanSnarker: Because he's a blue oni, his remarks are often dry and sarcastic.
* FatAndSkinny: The fat to Lumiere's skinny, as you see when they transform back into their human forms, though taking place in an era in which extra weight was most often an indicator of wealth, most of the dynamics of the trope in present day are reversed.
* [[FourTemperamentEnsemble Five Temperament Ensemble]]: Melancholic
* JerkassHasAPoint: He comes off as a dick when he tells the others to stop being nice to Maurice when he stumbles in, and to kick him back out into the cold blizzard. However, as all the others seemed to have forgotten, being stuck in a cold blizzard is much better than the alternative: pissing off The Beast.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's pompous, grumpy and a bit rude, but he's really just as good-natured as Lumière and he can also be very helpful.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Cogsworth can be a real tight-ass (somewhat justified, considering the above points), but once he loosens up, he can act goofier than even Lumiere. He shows shades of this right at the end of ''Be Our Guest'', and during the castle invasion he goes completely nuts (and is clearly enjoying it).
* OfficialCouple: With the wardrobe in the stage version.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue Oni to Lumiere's Red; more focused on rules and structure and significantly less hammy.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Lumière. Good friends who are very different and often butt heads. Their relationship is said to mirror that of the two animators who drew their characters.

[[folder: Babette]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fifidisney.jpg]]
->''"I've been burned by you before! Hehehe!"''
-> '''Voiced by:''' Kimmy Robertson

A maid and Lumière's sweetheart, who has been turned into a feather duster.
----
* AscendedExtra: In the stage musical, she becomes almost as prominent as Lumière and Cogsworth.
* FrenchMaid: She's a maid of the castle complete with the outfit and her cursed form is a feather duster.
* FunnyForeigner: Yes, this takes place in France but she and Lumière are the only ones with French accents.
* MsFanservice: Averted for the most part as she's a feather duster. Her human form however is stunning. She looks somewhat like Belle crossed with the Bimbettes.
* OfficialCouple: With Lumiere.
* ReallyGetsAround: Implied in the stage version. Both she and Lumière ''love'' making each other jealous. Maurice, Jacques, Pierre... PlayedForLaughs.
* SickeninglySweethearts: She likes flirting with Lumière.
* SlapSlapKiss: Occasionally invokes this with Lumière in the stage musical. She seems to do it to mess with him more than anything.
* SuddenNameChange: The sequels call her Fifi. The stage musical calls her Babette.
* TheTease: Teasing her boyfriend is her favorite hobby.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type B in the stage version. She likes to pretend to get pissed off at him for little other purpose than to mess with him, and immediately gets flirty and lovey-dovey within seconds. PlayedForLaughs.

[[folder: The Three Bimbettes]]
[[quoteright:271:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beaty_and_the_beaties_8101.jpg]]
->''Look there he goes\\
Isn't he dreamy?\\
Monsieur Gaston,\\
Oh, he's so cute!''
->'''Voiced by:''' Kath Soucie, Mary Kay Bergman

A trio of village maidens who constantly fawn over Gaston.
----
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Head over heels for the local jerkass, Gaston.
* AllThereInTheManual: Their real names are Claudette (with the red dress), Laurette (with the amber dress) and Paulette (with the green dress).
* {{Brainless Beaut|y}}ies: To contrast Belle the bookworm, they're dumb as a post.
* BouquetToss: In the coloring book for the movie, it was shown that the sisters were invited to the wedding of Belle and the Prince, and [[CatFight they started fighting over]] who of them was going to catch Belle's bouquet.
* ColorCodedCharacters: The only difference between them is the color of their dresses and their hairstyles (and if you watch closely, right at the end of "Gaston (Reprise)", their bangs are briefly all the same).
* TheDividual: The three of them are, for all intents and purposes, a single entity.
* {{Dumb Blonde}}s: They are all three blondes to contrast the BrainyBrunette.
* {{Fangirl}}s: Gaston's; see page quote.
* {{Gainaxing}}: Their dresses are clearly not doing anything to support their breasts. This can get very obvious sometimes.
* MeaningfulName: Their name is [[PunnyName derived from the term "bimbo"]].
* MsFanservice: Beautiful, fashionably dressed and adoring triplets. Yes.
* NoNameGiven: None of them have individual given names.
* PantyShot: When Gaston lifts them over his head and then drops them on Le Fou, their dresses flip up revealing lacy white bloomers.
* RapunzelHair: Very long and very well groomed.
* SameSexTriplets: If one of them was a guy, then either he'd fawn over Gaston as well or he'd need his own identity. This is simpler.
* {{Satellite Character}}s: They spend their screentime fawning over Gaston, and aren't seen separately from him.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Although they accompany Gaston in the first half of the film, they're completely absent when the villagers join Gaston in storming the Beast's castle. Averted with the musical, where they're shown in the mob.

[[folder: Gaston's Buddies]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gastonbuddies.PNG]]
Gaston's closest friends. Unlike the villagers, they are aware of Gaston's schemes, and are eager to assist him in any way.
----
* AnAxToGrind: Two of them were seen wielding axes in the climax, with one of them attacking the wardrobe.
* TheBrute: All of them are a bunch of bullies that eagerly does some physical work on behalf of Gaston.
* ButtMonkey: Much less than Lefou, but they ended up as punching bags for Gaston in the song. They also endure some pretty humiliating defeats in the climax.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Tom (the short one) plucks Babette's feathers from Fifi the featherduster, chuckling perversely, which prompts Lumiere to give the guy 3rd degree burns to his ass while saving her.
* FingerlessGloves: Tom has a pair.
* ForTheEvulz: While the rest of the mob wants to kill the Beast out of fear, they earnestly join up with Gaston because they felt like it.
* IronButtMonkey: Despite Tom getting 3rd degree burns from Lumiere, he's back up again in five seconds, helping Lefou chase down Footstool.
* {{Jerkass}}: They were quick to mock Maurice when he mentions the Beast has locked up Belle, and promptly threw Maurice out into the snow, calling him "Crazy Old Maurice" afterward.
* NoNameGiven: To the oldest of Gaston's buddies. The other three were named Tom (the shortest one), Dick (the blond, thin one), and Stanley (the biggest one) once during the Gaston Song.
* SatelliteCharacter: They mostly hang around with Gaston, but they also hung around with Lefou.
* TeethFlying: Dick gets several of his teeth knocked out by two drawers on either side of his head.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Gaston, even after he beats them up, they are happy to do anything Gaston wants.
* VillainSong: All of them participated in Gaston's ego stroking villain song, whether as singers or as punching bags. They were also present in the Mob Song, acting as mob leaders.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: The old man winds up inside the wardrobe and comes out wearing a hula skirt, high heels, a tube top, long gloves and an orange wig that resembles Marge Simpson's wig.

[[folder: Monsieur D'Arque]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/darque.jpg]]
->''"Oh, that is despicable! *EvilLaugh* I love it!"''
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TonyJay

Monsieur D'Arque is the owner of the local madhouse or Asylum for Loons.
----
* ArsonMurderAndAdmiration: His opinion on Gaston's EvilPlan. He ends up taking the trope one step further by subscribing to said EvilPlan.
* CardCarryingVillain: Ask him what he thinks of Gaston's EvilPlan.
-->'''Monsieur D'Arque:''' Oh, that's despicable. ''[[ArsonMurderAndAdmiration I love it!]]''
* EvilFeelsGood: Joining Gaston's plan for the heck of it.
* EvilLaugh: Chuckles darkly before saying how much he loves Gaston's EvilPlan.
* EvilOldFolks: He's a gaunt and rail thing.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Surprising for such an old person; to enhance the evilness.
* ForTheEvulz: Never mind that what Gaston's got up his sleeve is despicable, or maybe it's ''because'' it's despicable, but whatever the case, ''he loves it!''
* KarmaHoudini: Despite aiding Gaston's EvilPlan, he faces no punishment. However, this is mainly because he simply disappears during "Kill The Beast".
* LeanAndMean: A rail thin asshole.
* ManipulativeBastard: When Belle stands up for her father, D'Arque steps back with his hands outstretched and his face contorted in fear, making it look like Belle's threatening him. He then switches to a snide grin when he sees the villagers all adequately turned against her.
* MeaningfulName: His name sounds like "[[DarkIsEvil Dark]]".
* ObviouslyEvil: He looks like the Crypt Keeper.
%%* RedEyesTakeWarning:
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: His fate after Belle confirms the Beast's existence is unknown. He doesn't show up for the mob song, and nothing is known about what happened to him afterwards. Most likely, he went back to the asylum; since Maurice was proven sane, there's no reason for him to stay around.

The Enchantress is an off-screen, minor character, but she is responsible for the events in the story, as revealed in the prologue that it is she who curses Prince Adam as the Beast.
----
* AesopCollateralDamage: You kinda have to wonder why the Beast's servants have to be cursed as well as the Beast himself. It's implied in some sources that she cursed the servants as well for spoiling the Prince in such a manner that led to his Jerkass attitude. Though this still doesn't excuse her doing so.
