* 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.

* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Inverted; she and her husband are the only members of Elizabeth's family she never blushes over.

* 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.

* 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.

This He's well aware Elizabeth would hesitate to tell Lady Catherine that she wouldn't marry him to save her life if that was still how she felt, so hearing from his aunt that Elizabeth refused to promise ''not'' to accept a proposal from him only has the effect of telling him he has gives Darcy reason to hope Elizabeth that he might accept if he did so.still have a chance, and encourages him to try proposing to her again.

* 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.
