Added DiffLines:

* ButHeSoundsHandsome: The Duke a bit in his friar guise, though it's mostly in response to [[TheGadfly Lucio]] obliviously slandering him to his face.

* ExactWords: One can't help but feel like the Duke is thoroughly enjoying himself while his friar persona is being cross-examined.

Added DiffLines:

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: A particularly odd example; Shakespeare ostensibly sets the play in Vienna but gives all the characters Italian names just... because.

* MinionWithAnFInEvil: The Provost, certainly from Claudio's point of view. When Isabella comes to plead with Angelo to spare her brother's life, the Provost is cheering her on. Later he actively works to try and find a way to save Claudio's life, even when it means breaking the law.

At the end of the play the [[BenevolentBoss Duke]] commends him for this and promises to promote him as a reward.

Added DiffLines:

** Lucio later [[AvertedTrope averts]] this when his friend Pompey is also arrested. He not only refuses to pay Pompey's bail, but [[{{Jerkass}} taunts Pompey to his face]] about how Pompey will get [[DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale raped in prison]].
