%%* BrownEyes: Noteworthy because of their easily recognizable symbolism: reflecting Flynn's naturally sarcastic and down-to-earth personality in contrast to the ridiculous scenarios he finds himself in. He is also one of the few male Caucasian characters in Western and Eastern animation to have brown eyes.

Not to mention the fact that she doesn't know much about the outside world because she has been locked in a tower her entire life. And Flynns blatant flirting with her when they first meet in her tower totally flies over her head and has no effect on her whatsoever (''shocking'' to him: "This doesn't normally happen..", "You broke my smoulder!"), showing her lack of experience in social interactions.

* DoesNotLikeShoes: Rapunzel is of the youthful innocence variety, plus she's just never needed shoes due to never leaving her tower. Interestingly, no one in the entire film comments on it, aside from Mother Gothel pointing a mirror down at Rapunzel's bare feet and commenting that she's "underdressed" causing Rapunzel to immediately pull her dress down over her feet. In the storybook version of ''Tangled Ever After'', she's still barefoot, even at her wedding. (In the short film, her dress is too long to tell.) The later storybook ''Ghosts of Christmas Past'' then shows that while she'll shun shoes most of the time, she'll renege to them if it calls for walking in snow.
** At least one bit of early concept art shows Rapunzel with shoes... however, in the artwork she's shown kicking them off her feet.

* ImprobableHairstyle: Rapunzel gives us a two-fer. First of all she has over 70-feet of her long golden hair but it's justified since the hair is magic. When she reaches the kingdom capitol, she gets a more convenient style when three girls [[CompressedHair compress]] that huge mass of hair into a fiendishly-complex mass of ankle-length braids. Then [[spoiler:she gets her hair cut off into a perfectly styled and layered pixie cut. The hair was cut off in one go with a [[AbsurdlySharpBlade pane of glass.]]]]

* AntiHero: He's a greedy and self-centered thief; he's shown early in the movie to be perfectly fine with leaving his fellow thieves behind to keep all the goods for himself. He starts out helping Rapunzel for his personal gain, but as the story goes on Flynn reveals he's not really a bad person deep down and his growing love for Rapunzel is enough for him to change his ways and stop stealing.

The second is when he performs his HeroicSacrifice, knowing he will die, but saving Rapunzel instead. He even attempts to smile and comfort her as he passes.

Later, it turns out he's a real softie for cute young girls and their dreams, and even gives the aforementioned lawbreaker some leeway for the sake of their love, lending his super-horse strength and fighting skills to [[spoiler:break Eugene out of prison and the gallows.]]

This makes her no less dangerous.

Even though it shows she's selfish and cares more for Rapunzel's hair and its power than the girl herself, it's only in the end, when Rapunzel discovers she'd kidnapped her as an infant that Gothel's true nature comes about and she's revealed to be willing to do absolutely anything to keep Rapunzel's power all to herself, even outright murder.

** Mother Gothel looks very similar to the way Bernadette Peters portrayed the character in ''Theatre/IntoTheWoods''. They even have the exact same motive for locking Rapunzel in the tower (protection from the outside world). There's also the young and old forms both take, the arrogant insistence of being right, and the awesome singing voices. However, the former fills in the blanks with much darker reasons to the point of being a {{Deconstruction}} of the latter.
