* A villainous TriumphantReprise: Maleficent has the Prince chained in the dungeon. She visits to "cheer him up", and recites as poetry essentially the libretto to "The Sleeping Beauty Song", sung earlier by the chorus.

* DarkReprise: A variant. While the three fairies are putting everyone in the palace to sleep, the background chorus sings "Sleeping Beauty Song". Later, Maleficent recites essentially the same poetry to the Prince as he's chained in the dungeon. May also be a villainous TriumphantReprise.

* RevengeSVP: Probably the most famous example of the trope: Maleficent casts the spell in retribution to not being invited to a party, setting off the plot.

* DecoyProtagonist: Both Aurora and Phillip qualify. The movie is named after Aurora, and they seem to be shaped up to be a major characters in the 2nd act, but the movie actually spends more time with the battle between the Fairies and [[BigBad Maleficent]] than the actual titular beauty and her prince. It was planned for her to be a protagonist, but the final film has the three fairies as the protagonists and basically do most of the stuff for both Aurora and Phillip.

* CapeSnag: Prince Philip's cape gets caught in the branches of Maleficent's forest of thorns. Merryweather alerts the faeries to this and they use their magic to free his cape from the thorny branches without a single tear.

* 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.
