* BreakTheCutie: While not the Witch's intent, her treatment of Rapunzel eventually caused her to be subject to hysterics.

* WantingIsBetterThanHaving: Moreso than anyone else in the story; after finally finding his runaway maiden in Cinderella, he grows bored with her and more intrigued with the mysterious Sleeping Beauty. If you pay attention, the IWantSong songs he shares with his brother are not about the actual ''women'' they're trying to woo, but entirely about the ''feeling'' of wanting something but not being able to get it.

Added DiffLines:

* WantingIsBetterThanHaving: Along with his brother, this is his main character flaw. After rescuing Rapunzel from her tower he quickly grows bored and strays toward Snow White. [[spoiler: In the 2014 film he manages to stay with his (still living) wife though, letting him grow out of this.]]

* StrawmanHasAPoint: DeconstructedTrope and In-Universe Example during ''The Last Midnight''. She brings up the valid point about Jack being responsible for the Giant's Wife rampaging throughout the kingdom, and that the best solution at the moment is to bring him to her. [[DesignatedHero The others]] are against this, knowing that she'll kill him even though more people will die if the Giant doesn't get Jack fast. The fact that they are against her simply because she's [[DesignatedVillain the Witch, and therefore, not to be trusted]] drives her up the wall. She turns it against them, saying that by refusing to give Jack to the Giant at the expense doesn't make them good, "just nice" and that while she may not be [[GoodIsNotNice good]] or nice, [[JerkassHasAPoint she's just right.]] It delves into TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, calling them no better than her and that the Baker's son will end up becoming just like them, a liar and thief, but at this point, she is so frustrated she just says "Why bother?! You'll just do what you do..." and [[spoiler: throws away the last of her beans in an effort to get away from them. When she vanishes, everyone realizes that she was right and that their actions were not great in hindsight. This becomes reconstructed, with the Baker and Cinderella admitting that "Witches can be right", but that didn't mean that her option was the only solution in the end, with the others deciding the rampage would end if [[TakeAThirdOption they killed the Giant first.]]]]

* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:After the Steward accidentally gives her a fatal blow to the head, she shows an almost zen calmness as she gives her last request, knowing full well that she's "on death's door" and using her last breath to plead with the Baker for Jack's safety]].


Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: [[spoiler:Her death--needless to say, a blow to the head hard enough to shut someone up is not going to end well...]]
