** 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.

* AllWomenLoveShoes: Cinderella[[spoiler:'s cover identity]].

* 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.

* AdaptationalBadass: Since his unsuccessful exploits in ''Little Red Riding Hood'' and ''Three Little Pigs'', the Big Bad Wolf has truly grown into his name, devouring hundreds, if not thousands of victims in his past turning him into an elephant-sized wolf capable of leveling forests with his SuperBreath (his inheritance from being the son of the North Wind). As he explains himself, the only reason he lost to the third pig that built his house with brick was because he was just a ''puppy'' at the time.

** When Jack Horner was suddenly turned into a dragon in the last arc, he lost his immortality and became destined to be slain by a hero, [[spoiler: which turned out to be his son]]. This effectively killed Jack Horner in their final battle, [[spoiler: but when the Devils came to collect his soul, all of them argued to whoever can claim it. So they then decided to just lock him up in the ends of time as punishment, but Jack somehow managed to escape this as well by using his and gary's literary powers to create a new universe in Jack's own liking.]]

* JerkassWithAHeartOfGold: Jack Horner is essentially this. As a trickster and conman, Jack always causes trouble to people around him. Not only that, but Jack also suffers from sociopathy that makes him oblivious to the feelings of people around him. He only cares for himself,a nd prides how important he is to the series. That's why it always surprises fans and critics alike whenever Jack does something that is selfless and beyond himself.

** When first introduced, Prince Charming is depicted as this womanizing and power-hungry asshole which almost everybody in the series disliked. It was a surprise of many when Prince Charming sacrifices himself in order to blow up a bomb dedicated in crippling the Adversary's Empire.
