* NiceJobFixingItVillain: After failing to make Elizabeth swear not to marry Darcy, she goes to Darcy and rails at him never to propose. This only has the effect of telling him he has reason to hope Elizabeth might accept if he did so.

* BelligerentSexualTension: With Mr Darcy, except that it's one-sided. He's charmed, but she really ''doesn't'' dislike him, and doesn't begin to warm to him until he improves his own behavior.

* StopHelpingMe: An InUniverse example. Mrs Bennet's all-consuming obsession is getting her daughters married, which she plunges into with single-minded drive. As Darcy points out in his letter to Elizabeth, however, her lack of tact and manners and tendency to come off as a GoldDigger-by-proxy have in fact had the effect of discouraging at least two would-be suitors to her eldest daughters, suggesting that her goals would be a lot more effectively achieved if she pursued them with less zeal (or if she directed her energies into improving her character and that of her youngest daughters instead).

* KarmaHoudini: At first glance she appears to be this, as she receives no obvious comeuppance for her behavior, marries the soldier she always wanted and is constantly supported by her sisters. However, the couple are always spending more than they should and have to rely on her family's charity, and her husband soon loses whatever regard he had for her, meaning she's stuck in a loveless marriage with no real prospects.

However, the couple are always spending more than they should and have to rely on her family's charity, who put up with the pair rather begrudgingly and prefer to have as little contact with her as possible. And her husband soon loses whatever regard he had for her, meaning she's stuck in a loveless marriage with no real prospects.

* SettleForSibling: Attempted. He initially wanted Jane, but Mrs Bennet convinced him to propose to Elizabeth instead (as she was hoping to keep Jane free for Mr Bingley). However, Elizabeth refuses him outright, subverting this trope.

* AmbiguousDisorder: Darcy is socially awkward, especially among strangers, somewhat oblivious to how his behavior is perceived by others, and doesn't seem very adept at using his facial expressions or body language (so that when he's gazing at Elizabeth in admiration, she thinks he's staring at her with disapproval).

It's probably safe to assume he suffers some form of social anxiety, though, given his reluctance to partake in social activities and dislike of conversing with strangers.
