The anime takes inspiration from a number of classic ballets; Most of the music is taken from these, and the two princesses' costumes are inspired by Odile and Odette of ''Theatre/SwanLake''. Also, [[MemeticMutation guitar ninjas.]]

A markedly different [[Manga/PrincessTutu manga]] was made after the anime. Spoilers will be marked when possible, but '''some aren't, so be careful'''.

Added DiffLines:

** Furthermore, most, if not all, of the music is taken from classical ballet or other classical pieces and in most cases, used appropriately. Further mention should go to the ballet classes as well - half-human ballet teacher aside, most ballet syllabi place a huge emphasis on being able to do the basics well, even at professional level and girls are typically not allowed to go en pointe until they can show strong fundamental technique and their feet are in a position to do so.

* PantyShot: Quite a few in the anime during the girls' ballet sequences, but this is rather justified given that the dances are actual ballet dances. There are more perverted instances in the manga, though.

** {{Deuteragonist}} Rue's costume as [[WomanInBlack evil seductive Princess Kraehe]] is [[EvilWearsBlack black]] with a bodice that [[SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains has barely enough cloth]] for an AbsoluteCleavage and [[VaporWear nothing]], ''nothing'' else yet it somehow stays in place as if glued to the skin. Now you ''can'' achieve the same look on an RL ballet stage but it'll need one, an experienced costumer to work a small miracle with skin-coloured ("invisible") fabric and two, a very, eh, "modern" production to be allowed in the first place.

* ContemptibleCover and CoversAlwaysLie: The cover to the [[http://karmaburn.com/?p=173 first compilation]] of Princess Tutu, while appropriate for the theme and character pictured, doesn't even have the titular character on it. Later compilations fixed the problem, though they had packaging issues.

* CrazyPrepared: Despite Kraehe fully believing there was no way she could lose to Tutu in Episode 13, she has the Love Shard soaked with Raven's blood, which still kept him to her if the shard was returned to him.

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 [[RealityWarper Drosselmeyer's]] story to have a life of its own. As Ahiru (Duck in the English dub and official DVD subtitles, to preserve ThemeNaming) struggles with the decisions she makes and the impact they will have on others, [[EarnYourHappyEnding her priorities shift]] and she fights Tutu's fate.
