* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Anna was initially smitten with [[BirdsOfAFeather Hans]] because of his princely and nice guy demeanor, but it turned out he was just playing her. Thankfully, she becomes an OfficialCouple with the surly, but brave and heroic [[DarkIsNotEvil Kristoff]] who would do anything to protect her and their loved ones.

* MumLooksLikeASister: Queen Idun looks like [[StrongFamilyResemblance a brunette version of]] [[OnlySixFaces Elsa's and Anna's adult selves]] (21 and 18)... even when they're in their late to mid-teens toward the end of the prologue (18 and 15). Due to the former's lack of (visible) freckles, she looks like 21-year-old Elsa with brown hair.

* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: In the brief shots of her as a child at various ages, Elsa wears her hair in a braid up until her parents die; then she wairs it in a bun [[note]]The first shot she wears it in a bun is at the very last line of "Do You Want to Build a Snowman"[[/note]]. Fast-forward to Coronation Day and it's again / still in a bun - symbolizing it's a moment she needs to restrain her emotions. Then at the end of "Let it Go", Elsa drops her PrimAndProperBun in favor of the French braid she originally wore, symbolizing she isn't as constrained anymore.

* ThirteenIsUnlucky: She was isolated for 13 years and she will be the 13th princess in the Franchise/DisneyPrincess line. She's also a lot more unlucky than the other Disney Princesses, with her entire life from childhood being one long TraumaCongaLine that only ends after the climax of the movie. It extends beyond that. Elsa originally wore the braid as a child - before the accident that caused her to fear her powers - before sporting the bun once she grew older and became more emotionally restrained.

* BreakoutCharacter: * BreakoutCharacter: Elsa has received a lot of praise for being one of the most complex, interesting, and realistic characters from any Disney animated film. Countless articles have been written that analyze her character and her behavior. Many fanfics tend to put more focus on Elsa than on Anna. Also, while ''Frozen'' merchandise in general is still selling out of stores months after the film's release, Elsa merchandise in particular is very hard to find, and people have been selling Elsa merch on sites like [=eBay=] for much higher than their retail value. As a result of her popularity, other media that involves ''Frozen'' characters often gives Elsa a more prominent role, such as ''Series/OnceUponATime''.

Due to the former's lack of (visible) freckles, she looks like 21-year-old Elsa with brown hair.



* OverprotectiveDad: Deconstructed. Agdar and Idun desired to protect their children, so they isolated them from anything that could hurt them, including each other. Because of this, the girls are denied the life experiences and skills that real people need to develop. Elsa becomes an IneffectualLoner who hides her emotions from everyone, including her sister, until they come gushing out. Since her powers are controlled by her emotions, not knowing how to handle either sets off the plot. Anna grows up very naive as to how love, the world and even her own kingdom works, resulting in her getting engaged to a man she barely knows [[spoiler:who turns out to be a GoldDigger and is just using Anna's naivete to marry his way into ruling Arendelle]].



* AloofBigBrother: He reveals to Anna that he was neglected by his family due to being the very last in the line of his kingdom's succession. His brothers are generally implied to have made him feel inferior. WordOfGod supports his stated backstory that he grew up without love and ''A Frozen Heart'' confirms this.

to:

* AloofBigBrother: He reveals to Anna that he was neglected by his family due to being the very last in the line of his kingdom's succession. His brothers are generally implied to have made him feel inferior. In fact, three of Hans' older brothers pretended he didn't exist ''for two whole years''. WordOfGod supports his stated backstory that he grew up without love and ''A Frozen Heart'' confirms this.



* EvilPrince: He is most certainly evil, but unlike most examples of this trope, it's not his own kingdom he's trying to kill the rightful heirs to and usurp, possibly because he has twelve older brothers and there's no way he can kill all of them off without casting suspicion onto himself.



* LoveInterestTraitor: He pretends to fall in LoveAtFirstSight with Anna, but turns out to be a {{Gold digg|er}}ing [[TheBluebeard Bluebeard]].



* NobleMaleRoguishMale: As the gentle nobleman, with Kristoff. Subverted, as Hans's true character is Machiavellian and uses the noble ruse as a tool to usurp the throne, while Kristoff's persona was implied by the trolls to have been created to protect himself and hide his inner kindness and goodness.
* NotSoDifferent: Just like how Elsa shut Anna out (although with Elsa, it was more about keeping Anna safe from her powers), Hans has had trouble with his brothers ignoring him (some even pretended he was ''invisible''). He uses this to try to manipulate Anna, leaving the viewer to wonder if his brothers' treatment of him is true or a case of UnreliableNarrator. (WordOfGod confirmed that yes, [[FreudianExcuse his brothers were every bit as nasty to him as he claimed.]])

Added DiffLines:

* PlotIrrelevantVillain [[spoiler:Prince Hans]] is largely indirect from the conflict with the eternal winter, taking advantage of a situation instead of causing it, with his main purpose being [[spoiler:someone for Anna to protect Elsa from and preform an ActOfTrueLove]]. A strange example, as [[spoiler:there is a reason for Hans ''existing'' (to inadvertently start off the conflict by trying to take the throne), but not much reason for him being a villain besides being part of the moral about true love]].


Added DiffLines:

* TheSociopath: He is an excellent actor. [[spoiler:He was prepared to kill Elsa shortly after marrying Anna, doesn't flinch in the slightest as he prepares to allow Anna to freeze to death, and shamelessly tells several diplomats that she died in his arms as they completed their wedding vows even as he lets a few tears roll down his cheeks.]]


Added DiffLines:

* UndercoverWhenAlone: That moment when Hans smiles like he's quite taken with Anna, right after they first met. On the edge of a deserted market in the water under a boat when no one is watching.


Added DiffLines:

* DecoyAntagonist: The Duke of Weselton and his guards are set up to be the primary villains from first sight, what with the "exploiting" quote [[spoiler:and the guards trying to kill Elsa]], but [[spoiler:Hans, who seemed to be Anna's love interest,]] eventually takes over as the main antagonist.

* DeadpanSnarker: Example:

to:

* DeadpanSnarker: His dialogue is mostly snark at whoever he happens to be talking to, and always in a deadpan manner. Example:



* {{Deuteragonist}}: Kristoff is a tritagonist. As important as the sisters: he has more screen time than other characters, but not as much as either of the sisters.



* ManlyManAndSensitiveGuy: Kristoff is the Manly Mountain Man to Hans' gentlemanly Sensitive Guy. [[spoiler:It turns out that Hans is actually the sinister villain, and Kristoff is actually a sensitive guy beneath his rugged exterior]].



* RaisedByWolves: He was raised by the trolls, who adopted him and Sven as children, and incidentally, he's more socially adjusted than the very sheltered Anna.

to:

* RaisedByWolves: He Kristoff was raised by the trolls, who adopted him and Sven as children, and incidentally, he's more socially adjusted yet, he ''still'' has a better grasp of human society than the very sheltered Anna.Princess Anna, as seen by his disbelief in marrying Hans, who she's only known for hours.



* CharacterTics: He has a tendency to lick both people and inanimate objects. Kristoff, Olaf, the [[TongueOnTheFlagpole staircase at Elsa's ice castle]], carrots, you name it, he's probably licked it.



* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Olaf is literally the embodiment of childhood love and innocence. Elsa's inadvertently created him from her memories of such.



* {{Snowlem}}: A living mound of snow created by Elsa.

to:

* {{Snowlem}}: A living mound of snow Olaf, a friendly snowlem, based on a mundane snowman she had made with her sister when they were little. He was the first sentient snowman created by Elsa. Elsa, though she didn't even initially know he was alive.



* NiceGuy: The trolls may be overbearing and inappropriate, but they mean well and love Kristoff a lot.



* SqueakyEyes: Whenever the Trolls blink in unison.



* GlowingEyes: Marshmallow's empty eye sockets glow blue when he's enraged.



* {{Snowlem}}: Of the dangerous variety.

to:

* {{Snowlem}}: Of the dangerous variety.{{Snowlems}}: Marshmallow is a large, decidedly unfriendly version. Born of Elsa's desire to be left alone, he is a large, very territorial monster who attempts to forcibly remove anyone who gets near.
* SpikesOfVillainy: Marshmallow grows spikes made of icicles when he becomes angry.



* SpikesOfVillainy: Made of icicles!

* ByronicHeroine: She is an IceQueen who not only is brooding about her powers, but also exiles herself after her powers are exposed at the coronation. Though, unlike most byronic heroes, this is less due to selfish whining and more because she feels she must detach herself emotionally for her little sister's safety.

Though, unlike most byronic heroes, this is less due to selfish whining and more because she feels she must detach herself emotionally for her little sister's safety. Her inner conflicts over her powers end up driving many central elements of the plot. In fact, "Let It Go", with its extolling of rejecting the conventions of society -- not to mention her responsibilities as monarch -- is essentially an anthem to a kind of Romantic Existentialism.



** Elsa crosses her arms when she feels stressed. Notably happening when her powers are exposed at the coronation (especially since it was to hide her uncovered left hand).
** She also tends to put her left fingers over her lips when she laughs.
** Elsa rolls her eyes when she's impatient.

** She
rolls her eyes when she's impatient.impatient (when Anna keeps stalling to tell her what happened in Arendelle).



* DamselOutOfDistress: When captured at the castle she uses her powers to free herself.



* DefrostingIceQueen: Again, pun intended, but it is Anna's [[ThePowerOfLove love]] for her that ultimately frees her from her fears and unlocks the ability to thaw out the winter.

to:

* DefrostingIceQueen: Again, pun intended, but She has to keep her emotions and feelings in check, because if she doesn't, she loses control of her magic, and it can do terrible things to the people. It is Anna's [[ThePowerOfLove love]] for her that ultimately frees her from her fears and unlocks the ability to thaw out the winter.



* {{Deuteragonist}}: Elsa may have half the screen time that her sister does, but she's more important to the plot. Jennifer Lee [[http://johnaugust.com/2014/scriptnotes-ep-128-frozen-with-jennifer-lee-transcript said]] the film is "Anna's story but it's really about Elsa."



* EmotionSuppression: For many years, Elsa had to constantly suppress her emotions in fear she would lose control of her powers.

to:

* EmotionSuppression: EmotionlessGirl: For many years, Elsa had to constantly [[EmotionSuppression suppress her emotions emotions]] in fear she would lose control of her powers.



* MysticalWhiteHair: It's strongly implied that Elsa's platinum blonde hair (a shade of blonde that is a few shades away from perfect white) is somehow connected to her ice magic, since she clearly couldn't have inherited the gene for platinum blonde hair from her parents. This is evident when she accidentally hit Anna with her ice magic and Anna gained a platinum blonde streak as a result.



* PersonOfMassDestruction: She accidentally caused a country wide eternal winter.
