* PrettyInMink: Belle's hand-me-down clothes from the castle include some fine furs. In the first film she wears a wine-colored winter cape with white fur trim.

* PrincessesPreferPink: Downplayed. While she is ultimately a princess she only wears the pink winter dress in one scene.

** According to the DVD commentary with the directors and producers, WordOfGod realized they never gave him a name. A licensed CD-Rom trivia game, however, does claim his name to be Adam, so unless we get a further WordOfGod decision later on his name it's the closest we've got.
** Paige O'Hara (The voice actress of Belle) confirmed the Beast's name as being Adam in Q&A Segment, as did Dan Stevens, his actor for the 2017 version.
** Numerous licensed toys used the name "Prince Adam" which could potentially lead to confusion with [[Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse another character from a separate franchise...]] although as Mattel made those toys and they own that name, it was likely their decision to help keep the old trademark active- an unused trademark can actually expire very quickly, trademarks lack the long-term protection of copyrights. Now that Hasbro has the Disney license, the name is no longer used on packaging.

* 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.

* 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).

* SmallRoleBigImpact: Technically speaking from a plot perspective, Chip does a lot less in terms of helping with the wooing compared the other servants like Lumiere, but he has 1 essential scene where he saves Belle and Maurice from being stuck in the cellar which ultimately lets her return to the castle and save the Beast.

* SuddenNameChange: She's had three different names over the years. The stage musical calls her Babette, the animated sequel ''Belle's Magical World'' calls her Fifi, and the live-action movie calls her Plumette and gives her a more birdlike design.

* AntiIntellectualism: At first, he [[StrawMisogynist disapproves of the thought of a woman reading, and therefore thinking]]... but later, it seems he opposes the idea of ''anybody'' thinking, deeming it a "dangerous pastime" even for men. However, he himself seems to have some learning, as covered in HiddenDepths.

* PlotIrrelevantVillain: He's the primary villain from Belle's point of view, but the Beast's situation (the curse and everything) is entirely unrelated to him. From a plot standpoint alone, his only purpose is to cause the Beast's {{Disney Death}} in the end, leading to Belle's spell-breaking confession of love.

* EvilCounterpart: To Maurice. Both take a lot of abuse and have {{Gonk}}-ish character designs. They also have an absent-minded encounter with Lumiere and get left out in the snow for an unknown period of time. Finally, Maurice is accused of being mad, while Lefou's name is French for "The Madman".

* 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.

** In the stage show, Lumiere and Cogsworth have a scene discussing exactly this. Lumiere points out that they raised the Beast and made him the way he is, and thus have their own part in the curse to bear.

* WouldHurtAChild: If the lines that the rose would bloom until the Beast turns 21 and Lumiere's statement about the ten years since the servants had been idle are taken at face value, the Enchantress had no problem with cursing an 11-year-old with a double dose of BodyHorror and AndIMustScream. Not to mention Chip.

* {{Expy}}:
** He is primarily based on Avenant, the suitor character from the [[Film/BeautyAndTheBeast1946 Jean Cocteau film of the same name]].
** He bears a resemblance to Brom Bones from Disney's ''The Legend of Sleepy Hollow''. Both are brawny, handsome, and rather respected men in their village who compete with the male protagonist for the hands of the most beautiful girl in the village. However, the resemblance ends here: while Brom's meanest act is telling a ghost story to scare his romantic rival, Gaston is rotten to the bone.
