* MortonsFork: At the end of season 1, Duck is faced with the choice between declaring her love for the prince to win his love, but dissolving into a mote of light, making it impossible to return the final fragment of his heart, or to remain silent, and allow Princess Crow to win him over. Naturally, Duck [[TakeAThirdOption takes a third option.]]

* TakeAThirdOption: At the end of season 1, Duck is faced with the choice between declaring her love for the prince (and thus dissolving into a mote of light, leaving no one to retrieve the last piece of his heart) or letting Princess Crow win his love. Duck realizes that there's a third option - to show her love for him through dance.

* RedEyesTakeWarning: Subverted with Rue, but played straight as an arrow with [[spoiler: the monster raven.]]


Added DiffLines:

* {{Railroading}}: A rare non-game example, as Drosselmeyer tries to railroad the plot in the direction of his choice, directly intervening in person in a few places in order to try and keep the plot on track. Given Drosselmeyer's lack of charisma, this doesn't always have the desired effect.

Once upon a time there was a man who died. The man's work was the writing and telling of stories. But he could not defy death. The last story the man was working on was about a brave and handsome prince who vanquishes a crafty raven. But now it seems their battle will go on for eternity. "I'm sick and tired of this!" Cried the Raven. "I'm sick and tired of this!" Cried the prince as well. The raven escaped from the pages of the story and the prince pursued the foul creature. In the end, the prince took out his own heart and sealed the raven away by using a forbidden power. Just then, a murmur came from somewhere: "This is great!" Said the old man who was supposed to have died.

** Averted with Fakir, since despite him having the same build as Mytho he is constantly depicted as a strong or even intimidating presence and is also shown to be a much more aggressive dancer.

But great changes are foreshadowed as these actions catch the attention of Fakir, a cold-eyed boy who dictates everything Mytho does, and Rue, the prince's enigmatic girlfriend. Unhappy with the Prince's restoration, both take [[KnightErrant active]] [[DarkMagicalGirl roles]] in the story, hoping to halt its progress, while the story twists down a dark, complex path, revealing [[Theatre/TheNutcracker Drosselmeyer's]] story to have a life of its own. As Ahiru (the duck, whose name literally means 'Duck in Japanese. Her name is explicitly Duck in the English dub and official DVD subtitles, to properly preserve the ThemeNaming for the audience) struggles with the decisions she makes and the impact they will have on others, [[EarnYourHappyEnding her priorities shift]] and she fights Tutu's fate.
