** When Don Pedro asks Leonado if Hero is his daughter, he answers, [[MamasBabyPapasMaybe "Her mother hath many times told me so."]], prompting Benedick to ask "Were you in doubt, sir, that you asked her?" The theme of infidelity comes back to bite everyone later on when Don John slanders Hero and convinces Claudio that she has cheated on him.

** In the original production, as Shakespeare's company would almost never perform the same play two days in a row, the actor playing Benedick would probably just not shave for the week if he knew he'd be playing the part later that week, and then quickly shave backstage between the two scenes (there is only a couple of minutes to do so). For obvious reasons, this approach is not in common practice any more.

* BetaCouple: Either Beatrice and Benedick or Claudio and Hero, depending on your view of the play. It's notable that King Charles II referred to the play as "Benedick and Beatrice."

* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Nearly averted. Don John is merely spiteful and petty, content to cause minor trouble now that he's been defeated. He's also rather stupid, and his minion Borrachio comes up with all the evil plots, and fleeces his boss while he's at it. But in the end, he's the one who expresses remorse and confesses, while John flees for freedom.

* ExactWords: During Claudio and Hero's ill-fated first wedding, Leonato attempts to smooth things over using this trope when Claudio begins to derail the event. Unfortunately, it doesn't take.
-->Friar Francis: You come hither, my lord, to marry this lady?
-->Claudio: No.
-->Leonato: To ''be'' married to her--Friar, you marry her.



* SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace

to:

* SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeaceSlutShaming: Claudio goes off on Hero, essentially calling her a whore in the ''middle of their wedding''.
* SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace: Played with; see above. The groom himself objects.
