* BerserkButton: Bean does not like the idea of giving up against a fox.

* UncleanlinessIsNextToUngodliness: According to the narration, [[HatesBaths Bean never bathes]] ("he never even washed"), and he's hard of hearing because his ears are clogged with residue. (The other two are probably unhygienic too; Mr. Fox says in an early chapter that he can smell them so easily because they stunk.)
* VillainousGlutton: All three farmers, but especially Boggis, who eats three chickens for every square meal of the day (plus dessert).
