** Kat. She comes across as a jerk to almost everyone [[spoiler:due to what happened between her and Joey in the backstory]]. She refuses to let Bianca date Joey or to date anyone seemingly [[BeacuseISaidSo just so Bianca can't]]. She's still a good person under it all and Bianca sees Kat's point eventually about Joey. Of course, her good side comes round full-circle when she decides to go to the prom just so Bianca can attend and have a good time.

* Coolteacher: Mr. Morgan seems perpetually annoyed with his class, but he has a lot of passion and is very upfront with his students. Most notably, he turned one of Shakepeare's sonnets into a rap, inspiring Kat. "I know Shakespeare is a dead white guy, but he knows his shit."

* In a subversion of the AlmostKiss that happens in the film, Ledger instead accepts the invitation and pulls Stiles into a big, sloppy kiss.

[[AllGirlsWantBadBoys The bad boy in town, of course.]] Enter Patrick Verona. He's mean, he's tough, and he scares off Cameron when he's approached with the idea. However, Michael, Cameron's new friend(ish), comes up with an idea: get Joey, a popular guy with a crush on Bianca, to cough up money for them to bribe Patrick with. This succeeds, and in the end, Patrick woos Kat by essentially being as cantankerous and stubborn as she is, only more romantic. He ends up asking her to the prom, having been given 300 bucks to do it, and while she doesn't go at first, she eventually accepts. The problem? He's actually really starting to like this girl...

* AlmostKiss: After the party Kat leans in for a kiss and Patrick pulls away, showing he was starting to connect with her.

* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Cameron has this view towards Bianca, hence the lengths he goes to get her. He gets a rude awakening at the party when she darts off to hang with Joey, and he starts seeing and treating her more like a person. For her part, she also recognizes how shallow she had been.



* NonindicativeName: "Ten Things I Hate About You" is catchy, but Kat's poem lists more than ten things.
** Actually, some of the items may be listed together. The words "I hate" appear in the poem ten times; the words that follow may be lumped together. Thus "I hate your big dumb combat boots and the way you read my mind" would be one item.

** In the end it's shown that he does so largely because he's afraid they can't handle themselves, and is actually impressed that Bianca punched out Joey at the prom.



* {{Reconstruction}}: Has some elements of this with regards to the teen comedy. Kat's anti-social behavior stems from past high school drama and Bianca has a HeelRealization with her ItsAllAboutMe attitude.





to:

\n* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: In a variation, when Kat offers excitement when the English teacher invites them to write their own Shakespearean sonnet he sends her to detention. Since she spends all her time on a soapbox and criticizing his curriculum, he took it as sarcasm.

Added DiffLines:

* AboveTheInfluence: A minor version, as Patrick was taking care of a very drunk Kat at the party but she had seemed to sober up by the time they got home. They started to connect in the driveway and she leaned in for a kiss, only for Patrick to back off. She was annoyed and storms off, but it's the first implication that Patrick was starting to like her and feeling guilty for the payoff.

Added DiffLines:

* SecondActBreakup: Played mostly straight with Kat and Patrick, although most of the movie is them getting close and then getting in a big fight anyway.


Added DiffLines:

* SpoiledSweet: Bianca definitely has a BrattyTeenageDaughter exterior with ItsAllAboutMe, but she's also rather sensitive and shows HiddenDepths as she sees through Joey's behavior and has a HeelRealization when she sees how much she hurt Cameron.

* PrinceCharmingWannabe: Double-subverted with Joey. At first, though, Bianca is attracted to him and wants to be with him instead of Cameron. The trope comes into play starting at Bogey's party when Bianca realizes Joey is extremely self-absorbed, and that Cameron is the better guy of the two, and [[spoiler:eventurally reuslts in Bianca snapping at Joey at the prom after she finds out from Chastity that Joey only wanted to get with her because of a bet he made with his friends.]]

* ExtremeOmnivore: Subverted. One of the stories going around about Patrick is that he apparently ate a whole live duck, save for the beak and feet. The story turns out to be untrue.



* FalseFriend: Chastity. Although she starts off as the Black Best Friend to Bianca, she betrays her first by taking her date (Joey) after he dumps her, then rubs Bianca's face in it afterwards by revealing that he dated her only over a bet with his buddies in the first place.

** Bianca tells Cameron in their first meeting that Kat used to be popular but an "unsolved mystery" caused her to become cold and antisocial. [spoiler: Bianca later finds out that it was because Kat went out with Joey before and they went all the way, but when Kat told Joey she wasn't ready to do it again, he dumped her.]]
