* ArmyOfTheDead: In ''The Good Prince'', [[spoiler:Ambrose takes advantage of the fact that all of his subjects from beyond the well are technically ghosts, and summons their forms as such to take out the Adversary's army through pure fear, by having the ghosts enter their innermost psyches.]]

* {{Irony}}: Snow White has [[spoiler:''seven'' children.]]
** Believe it or not, Bigby was actually the ''runt'' of his litter, and was constantly picked on by his brothers for his puny size. It was this, along with a desire to get even with his father for having abandoned their mother to die, that prompted him to everyday "eat something bigger than what I ate yesterday", ultimately resulting in his wolf form becoming the size of an elephant (more than three times the size of his brothers).

** The end of ''Storybook Love'' has Snow White finally agreeing to go on a date with Bigby as long as they take it "''very'' slowly". Soon after, [[spoiler:she realizes the two of them slept together during their drugged state and she's pregnant. It takes a while for her to recover and the two of them to reconcile after that.]]

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: The speed at which the final arc of Rose vs. Snow got ended, with Rose suddenly realizing the curse was broken and "we don't need to do this after all"]]. Considering that the whole Empire vs Fabletown thing took up 11 full books (12 if you count ''1001 Nights of Snowfall''), the whole ending story arc of Rose and Snow gearing up to fight is rushed and haphazard, taking less than 3 books to build and resolve.

Added DiffLines:

** The short "In a Castle Dark", in the "Farewell" arc. All the frames, especially the establishing shots of a tall building with smoke pouring out of it and the dialog of the fire fighters, strongly evoke 9/11 in NYC, just before the World Trade Center fell. One of the fire fighters talking about how the upper levels are just "gone" with no way to get at anyone trapped inside seals the image.

** [[spoiler:Snow White and Bigby]] are technically this. Per [[spoiler:Bigby]]'s words, it took him a few centuries to "get into human girls".

* AllWomenLoveShoes: Cinderella[[spoiler:'s cover identity]]. She owns the Glass Slipper Shoe Store.



* AndThatsTerrible: Everybody in the story keeps underlining just how detestable [[spoiler:Prince Brandish]] supposedly is and mind you, he ''is'' a smug wife beater, so he definitely is bad as such [[spoiler:(not to mentioned he also murdered one of their own)]]. However, this comes as an massive departure from sweepingly overlooking or justifying enormously greater atrocities and malevolence from other characters, including some of the protagonists, so in the end it just comes across as extremely odd or even slanted.

* Creator'sPet: Jack Horner was supposed to be written off after the ''Jack Be Nimble'' story arc. But Shelly Bond "sweet-talked" Willingham into putting him into a separate spin-off instead. Bond's reason? Jack Horner was her favorite.
