Added DiffLines:

* StevenUlyssesPerhero: Most of the Enchanted Objects are pieces of furniture that correspond to their original names, which not only means that their original jobs in the castle were well-suited, but that their transformations are also keyed to their monikers.

Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism: The Enchanted Objects are mostly "cartoon face on top of an item", but certain details of their forms correspond to human features, like the implied noses of Mrs. Potts and Chip, the clock-hand mustache on Cogsworth, the "hair" of the Wardrobe, and the candle wax of Lumiere forming hair and, in the castle invasion, melting as if it were fearful sweat.

** The first stained glass window seen in the prologue has the Latin phrase 'vincit qui se vincit', which means (in a subtle prefiguring of the arc of the whole story) 'He conquers who conquers himself'.

Added DiffLines:

** The rose as a goal for the father (being requested by his daughter), found at the Beast's castle and leading to his imprisonment once he tries to take it. Here, it's a magical time limit on the curse. The 2017 remake keeps both plot elements with separate roses.

* FeministFantasy: Belle is an [[BrainyBrunette intelligent]], free-spirited heroine that loves to read and dreams of living a life of adventure. She stands her ground against JerkJock Gaston and the titular [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Beast]], calling them on their behavior and refusing to change herself to suit others.

She stands her ground against JerkJock Gaston and the titular [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Beast]], calling them on their behavior and refusing to change herself to suit others. The Beast ultimately earns her love by treating her with gentleness, respect and selfless caring, not to mention by embracing her passion for books, while Gaston, who does just the opposite of all those things [[spoiler: pays with his life in the end.]]

* IWishItWereReal: A number of Belle's stories sound favorite story, which is full of magic and excitement and which includes a prince in disguise whose real identity the heroine doesn't know at first, sounds more than a little like the movie's plot.



* JerkassHasAPoint: Yes, Beast shouldn't have scared Belle in the West Wing, but he had every right to be alarmed about her touching the rose - that thing is kept under glass ''for a reason''. She might have destroyed his chance to break the spell, or possibly even killed him, without meaning to! In addition, she'd deliberately disobeyed the ''one rule'' he imposed on her (that was as much for her own protection as it was to guard what little dignity he had).

* VillainousValour: Gaston has a good reason to boast about his strength. He fought toe-to-toe and did it pretty well against Beast, even when Beast got over his despair and stopped letting himself get beaten. He also ripped off a marble/stone ornament from the castle with little to no effort, and was able to carry approximately 400+ lbs (The Triplets sitting on a bench) with one hand and with very little effort, which places his strength at [[SuperStrength superhuman levels]].

** Belle's simple country dress before she gets some finer clothes at Beast's castle was designed to be a lot like [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Dorothy Gale's]] to indicate her having a similarly innocent and yet strong-and-adventurous personality.



* SoftWater: Realistically averted, when one logically combines the DisneyVillainDeath and FreezeFrameBonus tropes from above: though his tumble was evidently into the castle's moat (though we never hear the splash for some reason), the villain must not have survived.



* TrueBlueFemininity: Belle's main dress is white and blue, which the filmmakers said is symbolic to her personality and situation.
