* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Played straight with Agnes Wickfield and Uriah Heep, although characters like HandsomeDevil Steerforth blur the lines somewhat. The dwarf Mrs. Mowcher goes from exemplifying this trope on first appearance to totally subverting it the next.

* WorldOfCardboadSpeech: Miss Mowcher gives one of these to David in her second appearance, calling him out for snap-judging her based on her appearance and behavior in company of Steerforth and describing her struggles growing up as a dwarf and the effort she spent carving out a niche for herself in society.

* MoodWhiplash: Often PlayedForLaughs with Mr. Micawber, who can go in an instant from being assured that he has reached the uttermost depths of despair to cheerfully assuming that all will be well.

* AdultsAreUseless: David's guardians almost exclusively fall under this, being too childish themselves (Clara Copperfield, Mr. Dick), heartless (the Murdstones, Uriah, Creakle), drunks (Wickfield), or severely in debt (Micawbers). Even kind and capable Aunt Betsey ends up losing all her money and throwing herself on David's doorstep.

* ThePresidentsDaughter: Agnes again, since Heep wants her as much for the power it will bring him as anything else. Dora also is this to David, being his boss's daughter; half his daydreams at that point (the ones that don't involve her) are about his boss, Mr. Spenlow, giving the couple his unconditional blessing: "Here are twenty thousand pounds, be happy!"
