[[folder: Cyrano de Bergerac]]
* BadassBoast
* BeastAndBeauty: In Cyrano's eyes, at least, but without the beast being made beautiful, as he lampshades.
* BerserkButton: His nose. Even mentioning the word around him is a bad idea.
* BettyAndVeronica: The loving but unattractive Betty to the foreign and beautiful Christian. Subverted in that most of Christian's mystique is courtesy of Cyrano himself.
* BeYourself: Averted. His FatalFlaw is his insistence on avoiding this.
* BirdsOfAFeather: With Roxane.

* BrokenAce
* BullyingADragon: A frequent "victim" of this ploy.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday

* EstablishingCharacterMoment
* ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask:
* {{Expy}}: Of Crisóstomo, a character from ''Literature/DonQuixote''.
* FatalFlaw: He believes it to be his humongous nose, but in reality it's his vanity that causes him to think this way. He only comes to realize that it was his vanity holding him back all along in his final scene.
* GagNose
* GeniusBruiser: He's just as clever as he is good at fighting.
* GentlemanSnarker
* {{Gonk}}: A self-admitted one, though there's some heavy suggestion that this is simply him being self-conscious as a few women are shown to be attracted to him.
* TheGrotesque
* GrumpyBear
* HeartbrokenBadass: After Act II Scene VI.
* HonorBeforeReason
* ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe: Belives that he's too ugly for ''anyone'' to want, and especially someone as beautiful as Roxane.

[[folder: Baron Christian de Neuvillette]]
* BettyAndVeronica: He's the beautiful out-of-towner to Cyrano's big-nosed but caring childhood friend. Subverted in that all of his charm is courtesy of Cyrano's own help and aid in courting Roxane.
* BeYourself
* BrainlessBeauty: Played Straight and Defied. He's nowhere near as smart as Cyrano is, but he's also shown to be much smarter than others give him credit for.
* CannotTalkToWomen: This is more of his problem than actually being stupid.
* HiddenDepths: He's actually a decent guy whose quite a bit sharper than you may initially think.
* HurricaneOfPuns: He administers one to Cyrano.
* ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy
* LetThemDieHappy
* LoveMakesYouDumb: He becomes tongue-tied whenever he's in front of Roxanne, needing Cyrano to feed him lines from the shadows just to speak properly.
* NaiveNewcomer
* NewMeat
* NoRespectGuy: Frequently called stupid and only admired for his good looks, to the point where even his admirers admit he's probably nothing more than a pretty face. Roxanne also immediately becomes annoyed with him the moment it's made clear he's not good with words.
* PrettyBoy: Pretty much the only real "skill" that he has is being incredibly good looking.
* RomanticFalseLead
* SamaritanSyndrome
* ShipperOnDeck: Deconstructed: He forces Cyrano to admit his feelings hoping Roxanne will choose him.
* SmarterThanYouLook: He's regularly referred to as stupid throughout the play but, while he's nowhere near as witty as Cyrano, proves to be cunning in his own right when [[LoveMakesYouDumb not in front of Roxanne]].
