* BastardBastard: Edmund gets a lengthy soliloquy on why his bastard status causes him to be treated as a lesser man than his brother Edgar. Unlike most examples, his noble father the Earl of Gloucester acknowledges and loves Edmund, but that's not good enough—he wants to be the heir, and he'll do what it takes to make it happen.

* ShutUpHannibal: Albany rebukes the villainess Goneril with this, after Edmund loses to a disguised Edgar:
-->'''Goneril''': This is mere practice, Gloucester. By law thou wast not bound to answer an unknown opposite. Thou art not vanquished, but cozened and beguiled.
-->'''Albany''': Shut your mouth, dame, or with this paper shall I stop it. [He reveals her letter addressed to Edmund.]
-->[to Edmund]: Hold, sir.
-->[to Goneril] Thou worse than any name, read thine own evil. No tearing, lady! I perceive you know it.
-->'''Goneril''': Say if I do-- the laws are mine, not thine. Who can arraign me for it?
-->'''Albany''': Most monstrous! O! Knowest thou this paper?
-->'''Goneril''': Ask me not what I know. [She flees offstage]
-->'''Albany''': Go after her, she's desperate, govern her.

* FrenchJerk: Averted. The King of France is by far the more decent of Cordelia's suitors and proves a good and loyal husband to her.

A {{tragedy}} by Creator/WilliamShakespeare, though the story is older than that, first found in the ''Literature/HistoriaRegumBritanniae'' (the tragic ending ''isn't'', though).

** Having just checked both the 1608 Quarto and the Folio text in my copy of the Oxford edition, I don't understand this one. Both copies of the text outright state that the Fool is hanged.

* FakeAssistedSuicide: The blinded Duke of Gloucester asks a mad beggar (actually his son Edgar in disguise) to lead him to the cliffs of Dover so he can jump to his death. Edgar leads him across level land, claiming it is the clifftop; after Gloucester has harmlessly "jumped," Edgar assumes another persona and tells Gloucester that he has been spared miraculously and that the person who led him to the cliff appeared to be an evil spirit.
