* ArgumentOfContradictions: The fairies argue over the color of Aurora's dress. Flora wants pink, but Merryweather wants blue and they repeatedly use their magic to change the color.

* DudeShesLikeInAComa: Most famous example, along with Disney/{{Snow White|AndTheSevenDwarfs}}. {{Justified|Trope}}, though, since Merryweather outright states that a kiss is the only way to break the spell. It sort of seems like Aurora and Prince Phillip met before as a way to act against this trope and to justify their love to a degree because the original fairy tale didn't.

** The fairies' names were this originally, as they were going to have powers tied to a specific element - Flora with plants, Fauna with animals and Merryweather with the weather.

** Merryweather feels this way when Flora and Fauna are trying in vain to make a dress and bake a cake, while she must stand there and be the dummy.

* EvilIsPetty: Fauna claims that Maleficent always ruined Flora's flowers, by sending the frost apparently.

* MisplacedRetribution: Maleficent places a curse on the baby princess, who has done nothing, to punish her parents.

* ModestRoyalty: Speaking objectively, Aurora's gown is one of the most understated of all the Disney dresses. It's quite simple compared to the gowns of the courtiers (and her mother), as well.

* ModestRoyalty: Speaking objectively, Aurora's gown is one of the most understated of all the Disney dresses. It's quite simple compared to the gowns of the courtiers (and her mother), as well. This one is pretty justified, since the fairies were intending to make it by hand from materials they had in the cottage.



* NoNameGiven: Aurora's mother. Her father is King Stefan, but her mother is only ever referred to as "the Queen". (Disney fans generally call her Leah, after a name given to her in one of the children's books written about the movie.)
** Not only is the character never given a name in the film, but the Disney archives for some reason have absolutely no record of the name of the ''actress'' who provided the Queen's voice! It's currently guessed that Verna Felton, the voice of Flora, provided the Queen's voice as well.

* OurFairiesAreDifferent: Flora, Fauna, Merryweather, and (especially) Maleficent.

** The three good fairies can switch between being full-sized humans
and (especially) Maleficent.insect-sized, they have wings and wands, and apparently can only grant the princess one gift each at the christening. Their magic seems to come from their wands, as they simply hide them away when they're raising Aurora. Fauna also states that their magic can only be used for good.
** Maleficent meanwhile is a fairy too, according to the script, but is more like a WickedWitch. She does share some similarities with the good fairies - namely that she has a power centre in her staff, and can transform at will.



* SurroundedByIdiots: It is Maleficent's much smarter raven who finds Aurora, rather than her obviously idiotic mooks. They spend sixteen years looking "in every cradle" -- for a princess they imagine to still be an infant. They didn't appear to have even ''searched'' the forest, despite claiming to have done so.

Added DiffLines:

* TomboyishName: Downplayed, but Merryweather is actually a boys' name in tradition (it's what Merry is usually short for). Merryweather is the most tomboyish of the fairies, at least with her no-nonsense attitude and dislike of [[PinkMeansFeminine pink]].

Added DiffLines:

* WereDragon: Maleficent. Near the end of the movie she turns from her humanoid form into a huge fire-breathing dragon. Though even in her humanoid form she already resembled one, such as possessing horns, scales, and a cape that resembled wings, and shooting fire at her minions when she's angry.

* 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.
