* HeelFaceTurn: de Guiche, to an extent, at the end of the play. It seems that he realizes how much he hurt Roxane through his machinations, and has mellowed significantly. Even before that, he surprises everyone in Act IV by electing to stay at the front and fight alongside the men under his command who are facing Certain Doom... even though his rank as an officer would allow him to lead from the rear.

Possibly he discovered then that GoodFeelsGood.

[[OverlyLongName Hercule Savinien Cyrano de Bergerac]] -- [[WarriorPoet the legendary poet, duelist]], [[RenaissanceMan soldier, philosopher, physicist, musician, playwright, and novelist]] -- has a problem. He has an enormous nose, which he believes makes him so incredibly ugly that he thinks no woman could ever love him, and fears his love for [[KissingCousins his cousin]] Roxane will never be reciprocated. Just when he's mustered the courage to hand her the love letter he's written, she announces that she's in love with the beautiful Christian, and asks Cyrano to protect him against danger. Roxane has fallen in love with Christian [[LoveAtFirstSight at first sight]] and tells Cyrano that if Christian isn't intellectual enough for her, she would be so disappointed that she could die. Cyrano resolves to [[IJustWantMyBelovedToBeHappy subdue his love for her]] and tell Christian about Roxane’s love. Christian despairs, because he also loves Roxane, and even though he is very handsome, he's inarticulate, and believes Roxane would never accept him. So, Cyrano, trying to express his love and to not disappoint Roxane, eagerly offers to script Christian's courtship, beginning by giving him Cyrano's own love letter for Roxane. Naturally, [[HilarityEnsues hilarity]] (and swashbuckling, and eventually tragedy) ensues.

* BaseBreaker: Played InUniverse at Act II Scene VII when Cyrano finds Literature/DonQuixote identifiable, compelling, sympathetic and worthy of imitation, whereas Count De Guiche finds him absolutely insufferable.
