* IWantSong: "Belle (Reprise)".



* InformedAttractiveness: While certainly pretty, she's described as an unparalleled beauty in the movie, which also depicts almost every other woman as busty and very attractive, particularly the Three Bimbettes. Her design is taller and more slender, thus giving her a different kind of beauty than the other women. Also, she shines only because of her "pure" natural beauty because she doesn't play it up (until she starts dressing elegant while in the castle), in contrast to all of the young women appearing in the movie. Even the only other innocent girl in the town - the one with almost no speaking lines, asked in the song "Belle" how is her family - is more fashionably dressed than our heroines, while the rest - the Bimbettes, Babette, the woman teasing the baker - [[EveryoneLooksSexierIfFrench use a heavy dose of sex-appeal]].

* IWantSong: "Belle (Reprise)".



* MissingMom: Like many Disney characters, she's mysteriously missing a parent and no real explanation is given for it. In the musicals, it's explained that she's dead but both Belle and Maurice remember her fondly.
* MoralityPet: Belle's presence causes the Beast to undergo an enormous amount of CharacterDevelopment.

* BadBoss: He zigzags between this trope and BenevolentBoss. As grumpy and demanding as he can be he still treats his servants well and in return they love him and remain fiercely loyal. Cogsworth is the only one that worries about Bad Boss like behavior.

* InsecureLoveInterest: He is certain that Belle would never love him because of his looks.

Added DiffLines:

* NonStandardCharacterDesign: While nearly all of the other enchanted objects have some features that resemble their human selves, Babette and the other dusters stand out as looking more cartoonish than human - which only serves to make her design at the end more surprising.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy: In the original tale, the Beast was never a bad guy to begin with. In the Disney version, he starts out as an antagonist and outright {{Jerkass}}, and only becomes good after CharacterDevelopment.


Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAce: He's handsome, strong, a skilled hunter, has women falling at his feet, and is adored by everyone...except the only girl he actually wants. He just can't get over the fact the Belle isn't interested in him, and due to his pride and obsession, he gradually becomes more psychopathic over the course of the movie, especially in the final battle with the Beast. [[KarmicDeath It doesn't end well for him.]]


Added DiffLines:

* CanonForeigner: Gaston was not a character from the original fairy tale. The main antagonists were Belle's two evil older sisters (probably AdaptedOut because they thought it was too similar to ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'').


Added DiffLines:

* UndyingLoyalty: While far from being a sympathetic character, he's a true friend to Gaston.

* ProperLady: Certainly looks like this with a modest, caring, respectable demeanour, and a perfect curtsy. In nature though she's definitely a SpiritedYoungLady.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: At least, according to the townsfolk, but it's more an InformedFlaw.
--> "The girl is strange, no question, dazed and distracted, can't you tell? Never part of any crowd, cause her head's up on some cloud. No denying she's a funny girl, that Belle."



--> ''Now it's no wonder that her name means beauty! Her looks have got no parallel!"

* EvilCounterpart: To the Beast. He's physically handsome, high self-esteem, but he has no inner goodness.



* {{Foil}}: To the Beast. He's physically handsome, high self-esteem, but he has no inner goodness.

* MilesGloriosus: Averted. According to what the other villagers say during his villain song, he's every bit the fighter and hunter he says he is. He only meets his match against a seven foot chimera that's built like a bear.

He only meets his match against a seven foot tall and ''severely'' pissed off chimera that's built like a cross between a wolf, a lion, a bison and a bear.

* BullyingADragon: In his arrogance he attacks the Beast mano a mano while viciously taunting him. He seems to be winning handily at first, but once the Beast decides to actually fight back, Gaston is hopelessly outclassed.

All things considered he manages to put up [[CurbStompCushion a pretty decent fight]], but he should really have known better than to [[DoNotTauntCthulhu taunt the eight-foot tall chimeric monster.]]

* 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.

* JerkAss: He's a sexist, controlling, egomaniac but he's not ''evil'' until Belle refuses him.
