* FailedASpotCheck: The Three Fairies try their darnedest to cover up their magic within the cottage and do cover up every nook and cranny... except the fireplace. This might be justified as Maleficent's curse in action. Doubles as {{Foreshadowing}} when Maleficent lures Aurora away through the fireplace.

* EdibleBludgeon: A brief scene {{played for laughs}} has an offended and mildly drunk King Hubert tries to attack his best friend King Stefan with a very large fish. However, since the fish isn't frozen, it goes all floppy in a few hits against a metal serving tray used as an improvised shield. The absurdity of the situation makes them engage in some tension-lifting laughter, and they make amends.

* ExplainExplainOhCrap: As Flora puts King Hubert to sleep, he starts muttering about Phillip going off into the woods to meet a peasant girl. Alarmed, Flora starts questioning him, and realizes ''right then'' that [[OhCrap Phillip was the boy that Rose met]]. She tells Merryweather and Fauna that they have to get back to the cootage, only to arrive there too late.

* FauxDeath: Maleficent intended Aurora to actually die upon pricking her finger on a spindle of a spinning wheel. Fortunately, Merryweather was about to bring her gift to Aurora when Maleficent interrupted, so Merryweather was able to amend it with this trope.
* FeministFantasy: The TropeCodifier as far as Disney examples go. The villain Maleficent is a LadyOfBlackMagic and refers to herself as the Mistress of ''All'' Evil. She's notably stronger, more powerful and much smarter than the typical Disney villain. So effective is she that she's effectively ''won'' [[NearVillainVictory by the end of the second act]]. On the heroes' side, the three Good Fairies drive the plot. They hide the princess from Maleficent for years and create the counter spell to save her. When Prince Phillip is captured, the fairies are the ones that rescue him and provide him with the tools necessary to stop Maleficent. Blog/UnshavedMouse noted how unusual even today it is for a film to feature three female protagonists who don't provide {{Fanservice}}, pass UsefulNotes/TheBechdelTest, and don't end up as someone's love interest.

* GoodColorsEvilColors: In a strange twist, black is ''not'' strictly an evil color here. Sure, Maleficent wears it and has black horns and a black bird for a pet - but black is also a prominent color in Briar Rose's peasant garb (of course, this could be to more dramatically accentuate her [[HairOfGold blonde hair]]). If there is a color more or less consistently associated with evil here, it is chartreuse (yellowish-green).
* GoodIsNotSoft: Parodied with Merryweather, who deals in BrutalHonesty and constantly lunges at Maleficent. The fairies' magic can only be used for good and to bring joy, but Merryweather still manages to turn Maleficent's crow into stone. [[JustifiedTrope But when you consider it she ''did'' make someone happy by doing it, ''herself''.]]

* LethalChef: Fauna when baking a cake, despite following the recipe to the tee. Her problem is that she is LiteralMinded about things like "fold in two eggs". Fortunately she's much more adept when cooking with magic, since all she has to do is tell the ingredients to "follow what it says here the book".
* {{Letterbox}}: Three clips from this movie - Aurora singing in the forest, Phillip escaping Maleficent's dungeon, and Aurora and Phillip waltzing - became the first pieces of footage to air on TV in widescreen, when shown in the ''Series/WaltDisneyPresents'' episode "The Peter Tchaikovsky Story". However, they played trimmed to 1.82:1. Additionally, in 1997, ''Sleeping Beauty'' became one of the lucky few Disney movies to get a widescreen VHS. This presented the movie in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio used for 35mm engagements.

* PrecisionFStrike: "Now shall you deal with ''me'', O prince, and ''all the powers of '''Hell!'''''" How much of a precision strike was this? The next time anyone said that word in a Disney animated production was ''thirty five years later''... In the weekday afternoon slot, in the pilot episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}''.

* SicklyGreenGlow: Maleficent has green eyes and a green orb atop her staff. Her flames are also green. In the 1997 restoration and a few other incarnations, her ''skin'' is green, although a very pale green--mostly due to coloring errors, since her skin was supposed to be white.

This film features in the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series -- Maleficent takes the role of the leader of the Disney Villains and serves as a primary antagonist in [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI the first game]], and Aurora appears as one of the Princesses of Heart. The fairies appear as a OneSceneWonder in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', and the prequel ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' introduces an entire world themed after the movie, with Prince Phillip serving as a party member during part of the game.

** The fairies have a similar reaction when they find Phillip's hat at the cottage, and realize that Maleficent has captured him. Though she's more powerful, they immediately go to his rescue.

* ForTheEvulz: Why does Maleficent want to kill Aurora? Not being invited to a party is merely her "justification". To add to that, she doesn't kill her then and there. She declares her death to come within sixteen years, so her parents, and presumably Aurora, would live with the haunting dread of that unfortunate fate that will befall her.

She declares her death to come within sixteen years, so her parents, and presumably Aurora, would live with the haunting dread of that unfortunate fate that will befall her. There is also her plan to torment Phillip by locking him up for a hundred years, and only then releasing him to wake Aurora, so that she'll remain sixteen and he'll be an old man. Neither Phillip nor his father had done anything to her.



* HoistByHisOwnPetard: {{Averted|Trope}}. Notable in that this is a ''Disney'' movie, which are usually the kings of this trope. The fairies had to interfere in order to defeat Maleficent, because she is so powerful and clever that even at her most arrogant, she is brutally effective.

** Due to Maleficent casting the curse, Princess Aurora is taken into hiding as a baby. For the next sixteen years, Maleficent makes herself fret and orders her minions to find the princess, saying that she's a disappointment to the forces of evil if she can't fulfill the curse. It's her own fault for not sleeping peacefully at night.
** {{Averted|Trope}} for the climax.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The fairies stopped up every nook and cranny except for the fireplace when they perform magic for the first time in years. Then Flora and Merryweather get into a magical dispute over the color of Aurora's dress. Guess how Maleficent discovers the whereabouts of Aurora. Missing the fireplace is how Maleficent manages to get a hold of Aurora a ''second'' time, too: by enchanting it to open up into a stairwell and hypnotizing her into pricking her finger.

* ParentalSubstitute: Aurora as Rose calls the three fairies her aunts. She treats them as her parents, even planning to introduce Phillip to them since she's in love. Merryweather starts to cry as she serves as a mannequin for Flora's sewing, because she remembers how Aurora was once a little baby, ''their'' baby, and now she's going to become a princess again. The fairies all lament that her sixteenth birthday came so soon.



* ShesAllGrownUp: Lampshaded by Maleficent when her minions spend sixteen years looking for a baby, and instructs Diablo to find a ''maiden'' who is beautiful and of the right age. Merryweather cries while modeling Aurora's birthday gown for Flora, after Flora's "measured" how much Rose has grown because "Rose" is no longer the baby they raised, and when she becomes a princess she won't be ''their'' Rose anymore.

* WhyDontYouJustShootHim:
** Why not just kill the baby at the christening for revenge on her parents? Because Maleficent would rather deliver a "gift": a sleeping death for when the little girl becomes sixteen.
** Justified for why Maleficent doesn't kill Phillip. He needs to be alive to fulfill Merryweather's part of the CurseEscapeClause. So instead she'll keep him alive, for as long as possible, and only then release him.
** Defied by Merryweather when Diablo sounds the alarm as the fairies bust Phillip out of prison. She chases the crow until she can get a clear shot and turns him into stone.
