* JustHitHim: Mor'du often chooses to only throw the huntsmen away instead of using his paws for much more devastating attacks.

* ViolentGlaswegian: All the tribes enjoy having a go at each other after a brief exchange of insults, with King Fergus finding it all immensely entertaining. Fergus manages to calm them down, but after the princess get them going again with a sneak attack, it takes [[TheHighQueen Queen Elinor calmly walking through the fray and corralling the lords and her king]] to get them to behave themselves.

* AlmightyMum: Queen Elinor can halt a full-blown mob brawl with a look and a few words.



* BewareTheNiceOnes: Elinor -- polite, genteel, formal, a diplomat who abhors weapons and violence, always seeking to unite the clans and bring peace and prosperity to Scotland. [[MamaBear But when you threaten her daughter]]...

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Elinor -- polite, genteel, formal, a diplomat who abhors weapons and violence, always seeking to unite the clans and bring peace and and´ prosperity to Scotland. [[MamaBear But when you threaten her daughter]]...



* BigGood: Queen Elinor. Her grace and wisdom are what holds the kingdom together and [[TheFace is the one doing the talking]] for the royal family. She's worried that Merida will not be ready to step into her shoes.



%%* BoisterousBruiser: ALL the men in the movie, but especially King Fergus.



* FieryRedhead: Merida, her father, and her three little brothers are all red-headed and spirited.



* GentleGiant:
** Young [=MacGuffin=] seems rather shy and sweet-natured, if [[TheUnintelligible hard to understand]].
** Same for Angus. He's a massive Shire stallion, but certainly sweet-natured.



* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Elinor isn't freakishly tiny, but she is thin, average-sized and married to a man so large that a small family could comfortably live inside him if you hollowed him out.



* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Father Like Daughter]]: Although Merida clearly has inherited her mother's stubbornness and pride ([[IResembleThatRemark contrary to Elinor's opinion]]), Merida is very much a chip off the old block when it comes to her love of fighting, weapons and woods exploration, and her overall badassery. In the end, however, it turns out there's badassery in [[SilkHidingSteel her mother, too]] - ''[[TheHighQueen she's the one who holds the whole kingdom together]]''.



* MamaBear: You can't miss the literal example late in the film. [[spoiler:Queen Elinor, as a bear, breaks herself free to save her daughter and Fergus from the dreaded bear Mor'du.]]
** This is just prior to an inversion of the usual roles in the trope, in which the princess defends Elinor [[spoiler: against her own father, who has no idea that the bear he's fighting is his own wife.]]

* PlotIrrelevantVillain: Mor'du. The plot of the film concerns Merida reconciling with her mother and undoing the curse she accidentally brought about. Mor'du is only [[PlotParallel tangentially related to any of this]] -- he's just a bigass [[spoiler:warlord turned]] bear who wants to eat everyone because he's a bear.



* TheQuietOne: All three of Merida's suitors are the quiet type, having only a handful of lines in the entire film. Their agreement with Merida's speech (which is only the second time Young [=McIntosh=] speaks and the first time Wee Dingwall does) would imply that they've been letting their dads do the talking for them because they're not overly enthusiastic about the arranged marriage either.
* QuirkyCurls: Merida is definitely quirky in the context of the movie.
* RapunzelHair: Queen Elinor's hair reaches down to the floor. Merida's hair counts, too. According to the Disney Wiki, if it were straightened it would be four feet long.



* SilkHidingSteel: Queen Elinor. Always polite, always well dressed, well-versed in every courtly art, and she can stop an all-out brawl simply by walking through the middle of it.Director commentary mentions a cut ending scene where the queen reveals she is also proficient in archery.



* TheUnintelligible: Young [=MacGuffin=] has a brogue so thick that ''even the other Scots can't understand him''. He's actually speaking a real dialect: Doric, spoken in the voice actor's native region of northeastern Scotland. He utters only a handful of understandable words throughout the entire film, and even those aren't enough to figure him out.

Fergus manages to calm them down, but after the princes get them going again with a sneak attack, it takes [[TheHighQueen Queen Elinor calmly walking through the fray and coralling the lords and her king]] to get them to behave themselves.

* BallroomBlitz: The three lords and their clans gather at the castle for the Highland Games, in which their sons will compete for the right to Merida's hand in marriage. At some point a massive fight breaks out (including [[ManBitesMan biting]] and at least one purple nurple). Fergus makes a feeble attempt to defuse the situation before diving into the fray, leaving Elinor to restore order.
