* ''[[VideoGame/FateExtra Fate Extra CCC]]'' and ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'', where he is a Caster-type Servant. Contrary to fellow famous writer Creator/WilliamShakespeare, his appearance is that of a [[OlderThanTheyLook child]] but with [[VocalDissonance the baritone voice of a fully-grown man]], representing how he has a childish mind capable of writing his fairy tales, but still carrying all his adult life experiences. He also loves [[{{Deconstruction}} tearing down the motivations of those around him]] [[{{Reconstruction}} but fully capable of acknowledging their strengths as well]].

* AndIMustScream: "The Girl Who Trod on the Loaf", in which the cruel, vain protagonist becomes a statue in Hell, able to hear everything said about her on Earth, almost all of which is nasty [[spoiler: until an angel begins to cry for her and sets her soul free]].

* DiedHappilyEverAfter: Dying horribly (which appears to be intended as happily) and going to Heaven seems to be Andersen's idea of the ultimate HappyEnding. Averted, however in "The Nightingale", which has a regular HappyEnding: the protagonist, thought to be already dead by everyone, survives after all.

%%* {{Disneyfication}}: A lot of his works has been adapted into animated features for kids, most of them naturally being done by Disney. ''WesternAnimation/{{Thumbelina}}'' also fell into this, [[FollowTheLeader despite being done]] by Creator/DonBluth.

** "The Girl Who Trod on the Loaf". Not wanting to visit your family because you're ashamed of how poor they are, and using the loaf you're supposed to give them as a stepping-stone to stop your shoes getting muddy? Kind of a JerkAss move. She did also have a habit of torturing animals for fun...worth going to Hell for?

%%* * GossipEvolution: "It's Perfectly True".True" shows how the true story evolves into so many different versions with every teller still insisting, it's Perfectly True.

TheOtherWiki says he was also quite possibly bisexual, so that's fun too. It's also noted that Andersen himself, his eccentric behavior and arrogance usually led to him getting kicked out by the various nobles who housed him.

* SparedByTheAdaptation: Many modern adaptations of "The Red Shoes" have Karen finding a less painful way of removing the title ClingyMacGuffin, and the story ends with her still alive.

Born on April 2, 1805 (which is now "National Children's Book Day"), '''Hans Christian Andersen''' (abbreviated H. C. Andersen in Denmark) grew up to become to fairy tales what Creator/{{Shakespeare}} became to drama. His works range from the simple to the epic, are full of complex but meaningful symbolism, and span the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism.
