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.

** Also Ebine, the woman who runs the restaurant from episode 3, sports a purple one of these.



* TheLostLenore: Akt 3 gives us [[spoiler: a male example with the restaurant owner's husband. She finds herself completely unable to move on without him, to the point she no longer finds joy in her cooking and spends more time trying to persuade her customers to stay as long as possible. Of course, being possessed by the Prince's heart shard of loneliness doesn't help either.]]

* StraightToThePointe: Usually averted. the girls are really just in the phase where the best of them graduate the basics and are allowed to start their pointe, and many scenes pointe out how hard it actually is, even for the dance genius Rue. However, for Princess Tutu (the Magical Girl form for Ahiru, who in her civilian form is rather clumsy and very often under threat of being assessed additional exercise for being so incompetent in dance class) it's justified in that thanks to her magic she can dance however she wants.

* InterspeciesRomance: The entire story is set in motion due to Duck falling in love with Mytho, back when she was still just a duck. [[spoiler: Ultimately, the ending hints at mutual love between her and Fakir after she's returned to being a duck forever.]]
