* EntitledToHaveYou: In a more platonic version at first. When Belle doesn't want to eat dinner with him, he yells at her to go ahead and STAAAARVE! A good part of his CharacterDevelopment is about him dropping this really bad trait, which culminates with him [[spoiler:willingly letting Belle go back home, which he does ''because'' he loves her.]]

* BadBoss: Gaston is a warped variation. Even though he is shown to be a high grade jerk in the village, and makes no effort to hide it going by his villain song, the villagers genuinely love him and don't follow him out of fear.

* BadBoss: EntitledToHaveYou: Gaston is a warped variation. Even though he is shown seems to be a high grade jerk in the village, and expect Belle to just fall into his arms because... well, he's Gaston. When she finally makes it clear that no, she's ''really'' not into him he... doesn't take it well. The other girls in town have no effort to hide it going by problems with falling into his villain song, arms should the villagers genuinely love him and opportunity present itself, because... well, he's Gaston, so it's a double insult to him. --->"That makes her the best! ''And don't follow him out of fear. I '''deserve''' the best!?''"

* ItsAllAboutMe: From his perspective the whole world is about him; Belle is a trophy ("The most beautiful girl in town") and the Beast is evil because he stands between him and his prize. ** This is further emphasized with his declaration to the Beast that, "Belle is mine!" Those three words reveal his motive for storming the castle was of course to not protect the village, but to MurderTheHypotenuse.

Per wiki policy, tropes should not be doubled up on examples like this. Additionally, Maurice is clearly caring and concerned toward Belle and not neglectful, just inept.
* BumblingDad/ParentalNeglect: It's clear that Belle is the one taking care of ''him''.

* NonStandardCharacterDesign: has a more stereotypically "cartoony" look than any of the other human characters.

* {{Adorkable}}: Just look at that face after a hunk of wood clonks him when it's thrown from his chopping machine and say with a straight face you don't go, "Awww..!"

* BerserkButton: Not getting what he wants (as in Belle's constantly rejecting him) makes him more frustrated as it keeps happening. Belle's YouMonster statement that pretty much solidifies her hate for him is what ultimately makes him snap.

* LaserGuidedKarma: Just when Beast spares him his life, Gaston [[LiteralMetaphor literally stabs him in the back]] right when Beast has it turned. Gaston, of course, pays with his life when he loses his balance and falls off the roof to his death.

is just a Butt Monkey versus another Butt Monkey
* BadAss: When the villagers attack the castle he shows up wielding a flintlock pistol and a pair of scissors (effectively a {{BFG}} and a {{BFS}} considering his size) and proceeds to whoop Lefou's ass.

* ShadowArchetype: To Beast. They start out very similar to each other. Both are indifferent to the pain they cause to others, aren't afraid to use violence to get what they want and both want to use Belle for their own selfish reasons (the Beast to break his curse and Gaston to be his baby-factory/housekeeper/trophy-wife). Arguably the strongest similarity they have is how they see self-worth (as befitting the tale). For both men at the beginning, it's exterior, the Beast is cursed to look like a monster so he thinks he's a monster whereas Gaston wants Belle because "here in town, there's only she who is as beautiful as me". However, the Beast learns to see Belle as the kind, intelligent, courageous and independent woman she is, changes his behavior upon realizing that it's wrong and proves his own self-worth by letting her go be with her father, which helps break his curse. Gaston on the other hand refuses to change, still clinging to his opinions of self-worth.
