* TheAce: Of the three suitors, he's the only one who looks like the tales of his combat prowess might be true, and clearly the only one who knows the first thing about archery.

* StrollingThroughTheChaos:
** Elinor walks very calmly through the massive fight scene going on in the throne room with the intent of putting a stop to it.
** She also does this when Merida crashes the archery contest, though she's much less calm. Also note that, while everyone else is clearly stunned by Merida's actions, Elinor is the ''only'' person in the scene who tries to stop her.

** This is just prior to an inversion of the usual roles in the trope, in which the princess defends Elinor [[spoiler: against her own father, who has no idea that the bear he's fighting is his own wife.]]

Their agreement with Merida's speech (which is only the second time Young [=McIntosh=] speaks and the first time Wee Dingwall does) would imply that they've been letting their dads do the talking for them because they're not overly enthusiastic about the arranged marriage either.



* TheUnintelligible: He has a brogue accent so thick only his father can understand him.

* TheUnintelligible: He has a brogue accent so thick only his father can that ''even the other Scots can't understand him. him''. He's actually speaking a real dialect: Doric, spoken in the voice actor's native region of northeastern Scotland. He utters only a handful of understandable words throughout the entire film, and even those aren't enough to figure him out.


Added DiffLines:

* AllAnimalsAreDogs: ''WebVideo/CinemaSins'' calls Angus out for being a "dog horse" when it rolls around in the grass with all four legs up.


Added DiffLines:

* GentleGiant: He's a massive Shire stallion, but certainly sweet-natured.


Added DiffLines:

* PlotIrrelevantVillain: The plot of the film concerns Merida reconciling with her mother and undoing the curse she accidentally brought about. Mor'du is only [[PlotParallel tangentially related to any of this]] -- he's just a bigass [[spoiler:warlord turned]] bear who wants to eat everyone because he's a bear.

* AmplifiedAnimalAptitude: Naturally, as a witch's familiar.
* AnachronismStew: Like the Witch, he has a futuristic viewpoint of things. To say nothing of his American accent.
* ButtMonkey: The Witch tosses and knocks him around with impunity.

* TalkingAnimal: The only one in the film, presumably through magical means.
* UnexplainedAccent: The only character in the film not to sound Scottish. He speaks in an American accent of all things.

Added DiffLines:

* OvershadowedByAwesome: One of the main reasons why she couldn't live up, in the eyes of some people, to her status of ActionGirl as shown in the trailers. Merida is a skilled archer and fighter, always hitting her target and capable of shooting straight even under stressful circumstances (like when ambushed by a bear). However, this is a Disney film. She's not allowed to skewer any opponent with her arrows a la ''Film/LordOfTheRings''. Therefore, her main opponent is a magical bear that can NoSell anything a normal human can throw at him, making her talents useless in that specific situation.
