** In between, while Gothel does give Rapunzel "everything", she neglects to ease the girl's general loneliness.



** And Jack's mother, who not only [[spoiler: found her son sold his father's [[TragicKeepsake jacket]] for ''one more dishonest scheme'' that goes up in flames]], but [[spoiler: later sees her son return in the rise of a new ruler who outlaws said-son.]]

** Also, the story begins and ends with Rapunzel climbing the clock tower in Gothel's villa.



* FreudianExcuse: Gothel tries to justify that because her parents abandoned her, she's entitled to take this world by storm.



* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Brute pulls one after he's deeply moved by seeing Rapunzel cry.]]



* MiseryBuildsCharacter: Gothel in the climax claims that she locked up Rapunzel in the tower to make her stronger, and she says SoProudOfYou when [[spoiler: a captured Rapunzel refuses to break]].
