* 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.

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: He initially thinks that [[BigBad Gaston]] is a nice enough guy, and suggests that Belle date him based on his [[BeautyEqualsGoodness good looks]]. He also thinks [[DarkIsNotEvil the Beast]] is pure evil... but given the horrible way the Beast treated him, this particular opinion is entirely understandable.

* DemotedToExtra: Has a reasonably-sized role in the movie, including one memorable scene where he sets Belle and Maurice free from the cellar. In TheMusical he's reduced to a few quick gags because [[PragmaticAdaptation his design is hard to emulate on stage.]]

* 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 and proves his own self-worth by letting her go to help her father, which helps break his curse and earn her love. Gaston, on the other hand, refuses to change as he still clings to his opinions of self-worth. Also, the Beast is proven to be more courageous, as he was willing to risk his life to protect Belle from danger, while Gaston is proven to be cowardly, as he has no qualms using cheap shots to get what he wants for himself.

* 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.

* 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.
