Someone went way overboard with "justified." Also cleaning up a bit of misuse.
* CompressedHair: While touring the kingdom, her 70 feet of hair is compressed into one floor-length braid. {{Justified|Trope}} as it was braids that were braided to create one big braid.

* IWasQuiteALooker: As an old woman, she can hardly be called attractive or beautiful. That is her motivation to use the healing lower and, later, abusing Rapunzel.

Ask The Tropers brought up why they would not be on their movie pages when most of their tropes are about those. So the lists are being moved accordingly.

The witch discovers that Rapunzel's hair now holds the power of the flower unless it is cut, and so keeps her locked in a hidden tower and unaware of her heritage, until the thief Flynn Rider (Eugene Fitzherbert) tries to make her tower a hideaway spot. She strikes a deal for him to bring her to see the floating lanterns that have appeared every year on her birthday, in exchange for the item he stole: the Princess' crown. ->'''Voiced by:''' Zachary Levi The film's {{Deuteragonist}}, a [[LovableRogue career thief]] on the run for stealing the missing princess's prized tiara who finds himself trying to hide out in her tower. Rapunzel, with no previous knowledge of the outside world, convinces him to accompany her to see the lanterns.Music/MandyMoore

''See Characters/DisneyPrincessPrincessesByBirth'' * TheAce: She's good at everything, as seen in the first song "When Will My Life Begin". Her talents include cooking, painting, chess, pottery, candle making, sewing, ballet, ventriloquy, playing the guitar and many more. Not to mention that she's brave, strong, BadassAdorable, able to befriend everyone she meets, and of course, like every Disney Princess, has a beautiful singing voice. * ActionDuo: With Flynn. Later on they become more of a BattleCouple. * ActionGirl: The first sign of her, in the original trailers, is her beating someone up with PrehensileHair. Although this didn't make it into the film, she remains a pretty mean hand with a [[FryingPanOfDoom frying pan]] and saves Flynn's bacon on more than one occasion. * AdaptationalBadass: In the original fairy tale, the heroine is a DamselInDistress and not much else. Here, she's an ActionGirl who's quite handy with a frying pan. * {{Adorkable}}: Rapunzel has a bit of an overbite, she lisps when she talks at times, hides in her hair during the song "Mother Knows Best" when afraid, GenkiGirl, she's overall naive, very pretty and downright adorably {{Moe}}. * AlmostKiss: ''Twice'' - The first time was [[spoiler:in the rowboat before the MoodWhiplash where Flynn sees the Stabbington brothers]], and the second was [[spoiler:right before he cuts her hair off.]] * ArtShift: As Disney's first princess to appear in a 3D computer-animated film, Rapunzel is given a 2D [[http://emilysdisneythoughts.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/554512_10151273014302620_1182212377_n.jpg makeover]] in promotional material for the line to match with the other princesses. * BadassAdorable: Cute as a button, but not even the least afraid to talk down angry thugs and angry horses. * BadassPrincess: She is a princess, though not knowing it, but as the above states she is an incredibly resourceful young lady. * BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Rapunzel runs off to adventure with 70 feet of hair and bare feet. She gets wet but dries off quickly, and at no point are her hair and feet ever seen to get dirty. The hair is justified because it's magical. The feet have no excuse. * BlessedWithSuck: ** Rapunzel briefly alludes to the difficulties of having 70-foot long hair during her IWantSong. -->And then I'll brush and brush and brush and brush my hair! ** Gothel has also made Rapunzel believe that she would be in constant danger outside the tower because selfish people want her healing power for themselves. Along with the actual truth in that statement and the resulting tower imprisonment as well. * BlitheSpirit: Her cheerful, genuine nature is what brings out the good side of the thugs at the Snuggly Duckling and saves Flynn's life. * BoundAndGagged: [[spoiler:Mother Gothel ties up Rapunzel for wanting to save Flynn from execution and to lure Flynn into a trap later on.]] * BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler:After Flynn cuts her hair. It kills Mother Gothel and turns her into a brunette. However, it's implied to not be the case in the short ''Disney/TangledEverAfter'', where her kiss with Eugene makes the sun shine brighter.]] * BuildingSwing: Using her hair as a rope, she can swing. * CallingTheOldWomanOut: [[spoiler:Does this to Mother Gothel near the climax of the movie]]. * CharacterDevelopment: Rapunzel loses her fear of the outside world and [[spoiler:learns to stand up to her abusive adoptive mother]]. * CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Pulling up Mother Gothel from the top of the tower everyday has made her stronger than she looks. She can effortlessly wield a frying pan one-handed. * ChekhovsGun: ** Rapunzel's [[spoiler:complete, non-negotiable unwillingness to break her promises]] greatly informs the film's climax, when she promises to Mother Gothel that, if she lets Rapunzel [[spoiler:heal Flynn]], Rapunzel will stay with her forever and offer no resistance. Needless to say, it makes the scene pretty tense. ** The fact that her hair glows [[spoiler:helps her and Flynn escape a watery death.]] ** Her passion for painting bright, colorful patterns and flowers on the walls of her tower [[spoiler:proves essential to her realizing her true identity.]] * CompressedHair: While touring the kingdom, her 70 feet of hair is compressed into one floor-length braid. {{Justified|Trope}} as it was braids that were braided to create one big braid. * CuteClumsyGirl: Thanks to her hair, she is endearing klutzy. Even beyond this, she seems to have a bit of klutziness in general; witness her attempts to get Flynn into her cupboard, the way she accidentally clonks herself with her own frying pan, and so forth. * TheCutie: She's more cute than beautiful, and her mannerisms and personality make her the one of the most adorable Disney Princesses. * DarkAndTroubledPast: Rapunzel has been emotionally and psychologically abused by the woman who kidnapped her as a baby. * DitzyGenius: She's incredibly multi-talented and capable of great insights, but also has her moments of (perfectly understandable) naive idiocy. * 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 cup her fingers over her toes. 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. * EarthyBarefootCharacter: Her lack of shoes reflects her free-spirited and energetic nature, her way with animals, and her healing powers. * ExpositoryHairstyleChange: ** Rapunzel has her hair braided and decorated with flowers when she finally reaches Corona. On a practical level, she couldn't really run around with 70 feet of hair dragging behind her. On a symbolic level, it's a sign that she's finally able to let loose and have fun, without her MagicHair being the centre of her very being. [[spoiler:This is contrasted with when she is convinced to go back to the tower with Gothel; the braid is undone, and the flowers taken away, with Gothel off-handedly commenting "There... like it never even happened."]] ** At the end of the movie, Rapunzel's hair [[spoiler: is cut off and reverts to its likely natural brown color]]. * FairytaleWeddingDress: In the follow-up short that focuses on her wedding. * FantasticLightSource: [[spoiler:Rapunzel uses her magic hair to find the way out of a flooded cave.]] * FlowersInHerHair: Once she enters the kingdom, little girls braid her hair to make it easier to move around. They added a plethora of flowers. She is the image on the trope page. * FluffyTamer: She converted [[spoiler:Maximus, a {{Badass}} war horse]] to her side with petting and baby talk. * FountainOfYouth: Her hair is the key to Mother Gothel's immortality after her mother ate the magic flower during pregnancy. * FriendToAllLivingThings: From horses to thugs to thieves and beyond. * FryingPanOfDoom: Her rather dynamic weapon is a cast iron version. * GenkiGirl: The most energetic of all of the Princesses (only matched by Ariel in her first days as a human). * GirlInTheTower: Lived in their all her life. Unlike the standard trope, she could physically leave whenever she wanted but her "mom" said she couldn't. * GirlyBruiser: Though she doesn't discover that she's a {{Badass}} until she leaves her tower at age 18. To make the example even more pronounced, her weapons of choice are her 70 feet of hair and a frying pan. * GracefulLadiesLikePurple: Her main outfit is a purple and lavender dress. %% Rapunzel does not fit the criteria for GreenEyes, please don't add here * HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Although the hair is gold by magic, she is still kind enough to stir the hearts of the thugs at the Snuggly Duckling. * HeldGaze: With Flynn during their song of romance "Now I See The Light". * HeroicSacrifice: Tries to do this at the end [[spoiler:by sacrificing her freedom for Flynn's life. He beats her to it by sacrificing his life for her freedom.]] * IGaveMyWord: Whenever Rapunzel makes a promise, she intends to keep it, from promising to return Flynn the satchel that has the tiara he stole to [[spoiler:promising Mother Gothel that she will go with her willingly only if Flynn can be healed first.]] * IJustWantToBeFree: Although initially her wish is simply to leave her tower once, when she discovers the joys of freedom she doesn't want to give it up. * IWantSong: "When Will My Life Begin?" * ImportantHaircut: [[spoiler:Granted, it's done to her hair by Flynn, but it's to stop Gothel from using Rapunzel anymore.]] * 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.]]]] * TheIngenue: Her naivete and innocence are two of her biggest traits, and end up being strengths for her on occasion. * LivingMacGuffin: Her hair, which can heal any wound and sickness, and grant someone everlasting youth is why she's locked in a tower. * MagicHair: It can heal injuries as well as sickness, glows in the dark, and can reverse aging. The climax and ''Tangled Ever After'' imply there's magic in her main body as well. * ManicPixieDreamGirl: From Flynn's perspective, her energy and good-heartedness cause him to change his ways and his life. * MoodSwinger: In one memorable scene when she goes out to the world for the first time in 18 years. * MoralityPet: ** To Flynn. His nicer side doesn't show until he's forced to help her. ** The thugs at Snuggly Ducklings also help out her and Flynn, because of her influence. Had she not been there, they probably would've turned Flynn in to the authorities. * MotorMouth: When she's nervous, Rapunzel tends to start babbling rapidly. * NatureLover: It's even enough to distract her from her guilt about deceiving her mother. * NiceGirl: Rapunzel is helpful, sweet, kind, and will never break a promise. * NoInfantileAmnesia: Despite the fact she was an infant, she remembers the layout of her room and has been painting signs of it her whole life unknowingly. * OfficialCouple: With Eugene. They're in the sequel short. * PietaPlagiarism: [[spoiler:While she holds Flynn after his HeroicSacrifice.]] * PluckyGirl: She's quite determined to see the "stars" from her birthday, even though her mother is constantly gas-lighting and deriding her, and she definitely takes some initiative in fulfilling her dreams. * PowerDyesYourHair: She was ''born'' with her hair dyed by the power of the sun. When cut, her hair loses its magic powers and returns to it's natural brown color. * ThePowerOfTheSun: It's imbued in her hair because of the flower, and it lets her heal. * PrincessesPreferPink: At the end of the movie, after she remembers that she is a princess, she wears a rosy-pink dress. * RagsToRoyalty: A Goose Girl type; kidnapped as a baby so Mother Gothel can make use of her MagicHair and ignoring that she's a long-lost princess. * RapunzelHair: Being a retelling of the TropeNamer, she couldn't do without it, but some magic justifies it here. It's stated in [[AllThereInTheManual an official "fact book"]] of ''Tangled'' facts that it takes Rapunzel three hours to brush her hair, and ''six hours'' to wash it. She hangs it out of the tower to let it dry. * RememberedICouldFly: In the scene where Rapunzel and Flynn are [[spoiler:trapped in a sealed cave while it gets flooded, Flynn fails to find an underwater exit since the cave is pitch-black]]. It takes a little while to Rapunzel to realize she can get some light with her hair. -->'''Rapunzel:''' ''I have magic hair that glows when I sing.''\\ '''Flynn:''' ''[[BigWhat What?!]]''\\ '''Rapunzel:''' ''I have... MAGIC HAIR THAT GLOWS WHEN I SING!'' * RequiredSecondaryPowers: Rapunzel's magic hair must also include immunity to split ends and other problems that would plague normal hair that hasn't been cut for 18 years. * RescueRomance: Rapunzel and Flynn save each other several times and fall in love in between them. * RomanceGenreHeroines: Rapunzel is an interesting mix between The Spunky Kid and The Free Spirit. * RoyalBlood: In a switch from the fairy tale, where she isn't, and he is. It also a small part of the story since her non-royal magic hair is more important. * SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: With Flynn. She's excitedly running to and fro while he stands there and snarks at her naviety. * SimpleYetOpulent: Her princess dress and wedding dress are both subtly royal. * SlapstickKnowsNoGender: Of the Disney Princesses, she suffers more AmusingInjuries than any other. * SpiritedYoungLady: She doesn't want to disobey Mother Gothel, but she's determined to get what she wants. * StrongFamilyResemblance: Between Rapunzel and her real mother, the queen. Especially at the end, when they're both brunette and the camera frames them reuniting, right down to the huge green eyes. Rapunzel and the Queen look so alike that ''she does not need to do anything else to show that she's the lost princess'', despite having a completely different hair color when she was a baby. * SwissArmyTears: She heals Flynn with her tears, which was also in the source material. * TearsOfRemorse: When she thinks they are going to drown, and it's all her fault, she's crying. * TeensAreShort: Despite being 18, Rapunzel is shorter than most adults, including her ''real'' parents. * TextileWorkIsFeminine: Among other activities, she knits and does laundry to distract herself when alone in the tower. * TheyDo: Only in the narration -- but then, she cuts in to Flynn's narration for the first time. * TraumaticHaircut: [[spoiler:Not only does she get the hair she's been growing out her whole life chopped off, losing it means she can't save Flynn's life.]] * TookALevelInBadass: Not that she was a wimp before, but after she meets Flynn, she just keeps on going from there. To go into great detail, Rapunzel starts out as a sweet but incredibly naive girl who lives in fear of breaking her darling "mother's" rules. At the end of the movie, [[spoiler:when she confronts Mother Gothel about kidnapping her as a baby]], Rapunzel stands up for herself and coldly says that Mother Gothel will never take advantage of her again, shoving Gothel away when she tries to rein Rapunzel in. [[spoiler:And when Gothel stabs Flynn and tries to kidnap Rapunzel away again, Rapunzel sets up a ''huge'' resistance, saying that she will ''never'' stop trying to escape unless Gothel lets her heal Flynn.]] * UnusuallyUninterestingSight: You'd think a girl with 70 feet of hair would get a bit more notice when she first strolls into town. * YouAreGrounded: Rapunzel has been grounded into the tower her whole life and when she asks to go outside, Mother Gothel snaps and yells "You are not leaving this tower! EVER!" %%* YouthfulFreckles [[/folder]] [[folder:Flynn Rider]] [[quoteright:235:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tangled_Flynn_8248.jpg]] ->'''Voiced by:''' Zachary Levi The film's {{Deuteragonist}}, a [[LovableRogue career thief]] on the run for stealing the missing princess's prized tiara who finds himself trying to hide out in her tower.
