[[folder: Cyrano de Bergerac]]
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBoast
** CulturedBadass
** HeartbrokenBadass: After Act II Scene VI.
* BeastAndBeauty: In Cyrano's eyes, at least, but without the beast being made beautiful, as he lampshades.
* BerserkButton: His nose.
* 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.
* BoisterousBruiser
* BrokenAce
* BullyingADragon: A frequent "victim" of this ploy.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday
* BuyThemOff

* GagNose
* GeniusBruiser
* GentlemanSnarker
* {{Gonk}}: A self-admitted one, though there's some heavy suggestion that this is simply him being self-concious as a gew women are shown being attracted to him.
* TheGrotesque
* GrumpyBear
* HonorBeforeReason
* [[ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe I Can't Believe A Girl Like You Would Notice Me]]
* ImpoverishedPatrician

[[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 himself.
* 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 I Can't Believe A Girl Like You Would Notice Me]]
* 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]].
