* AdaptationExpansion: Sometimes, especially for short tales. "Snow White and Rose Red", for example, has the Prince's younger brother meet Rose Red a few times on his own while the main story occurs, showing that he fell in love with her on his own (plus she acts a little like a SmittenTeenageGirl, showing that she ''also'' likes him a lot) '''and''' that he was desperately searching for his missing big brother aka the Prince himself.

** The witch in "Rapunzel" as well, albeit more subtly. Here, she apparently locked Rapunzel away from the world immediately after kidnapping her, rather than when she turned twelve. In addition to giving her adopted daughter a TraumaticHaircut and casting her out into a desert after finding out about the prince's visits, she beats her into unconsciousness, and it's implied she was originally intending to ''kill'' her. Shortly before said beating, she says she wanted to keep the girl all to herself, rather than wanting to protect her from the world. Moreover, [[DestinationDefenestration she pushes the prince out of the tower with her magic]], unlike in the original story where he jumped out or fell off on his own.

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: In [[Literature/{{Rapunzel}} the original story]], the prince heard Rapunzel singing. Here, he hears her playing a lyre. This raises the question of how he knew it was a woman up in the tower. (evben funnier, in the original Rapunzel is voiced by [[Creator/MitsukoHorie a famous singer]])
