* TheCutie: Pretty, sweet, adorable, and the MoralityPet for everyone's favorite TallDarkAndSnarky gentleman? How could she ''not'' be this?



** Also, even Caroline likes her. When Caroline brings up Wickham, Elizabeth takes this as proof that Caroline doesn't know about the whole Wickham/Georgiana debacle, since Caroline ''definitely'' wouldn't have mentioned Wickham if he knew how badly he'd hurt Georgiana.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: Mrs. Bennet has the habit of changing her views to suit her best purposes at any given moment. For example, she is full of bitterness, resentment and dislike towards Mr. Collins for the crime of being the next heir to Longbourn... until he demonstrates an interest in marrying one of her daughters, at which point she quickly becomes his biggest admirer in the Longbourn household.

Added DiffLines:

* TokenGoodTeammate: While the other members of the Darcy[=/=]Bingley party who arrive at Netherfield aren't exactly ''evil'', Bingley is the only one of them who isn't as a socially aloof, arrogant snob. Certainly, unlike his snide, bitchy sisters and the cold, aloof Darcy he's friendly, humble, warm and inviting to his new neighbours and never shows a hint of disdain or condescension towards them.

* StealthInsult: Inverted as a stealth ''compliment'' during the discussion of what qualifies a young lady as "accomplished" at Netherfield--after he and then Caroline make a huge list of somewhat nebulous virtues, he ends by adding that she also must improve her mind through extensive reading. Elizabeth had chosen a book for her occupation upon entering the room.

Elizabeth had chosen a book for her occupation upon entering the room. Although it also works as a straight example of the trope, since among her PassiveAggressiveKombat strategies Caroline had chosen to make several snide comments about Elizabeth's 'obsession' with reading.

* BerserkButton: Threatening Jane's happiness. It's enough to even turn her against [[NiceGuy Bingley]] for a while.



** Also with Charlotte, in the platonic version; though Elizabeth loves her sister Jane dearly, she and Charlotte have much more similar personalities in most respects.

* BerserkButton: Being defied in any manner whatsoever.
* BigBad: The closest thing to one in the novel.
** BigBadEnsemble: With George Wickham, as Wickham's actions more directly affect the Bennets than Lady Catherine does.

Added DiffLines:

** Has shades of this with Bingley, who regularly appeals to him for advice and whom he does his best to shield from the possible ill consequences of his overly-pliant personality.

* EnglishRose: Subverted, but she'd tell you otherwise.



* EnglishRose: She's one of the few women Darcy considers to be "accomplished", a good musician, modest, and completely sweet.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: A variant, at least; while he's an obnoxious, brown-nosing jerk, as Charlotte Lucas notes there's no real malice or malevolence to his character. When married, he treats his wife kindly and with affection. He's a bit of a slimy creep, but not a bad guy.

* NiceToTheWaiter: One of the solid clues we get that Darcy is actually a decent man is that, when asked about him, his servants sing his praises. It seems while he has no qualms about being rude to those he considers a cut beneath him, ''noblesse obliege'' requires him to be courteous and considerate to those who are very much his social inferiors and dependent on him. He also appears to be well-respected by the locals of the area surrounding Pemberly.
