* PragmaticAdaptation: The (rather short) [[TheBookOfTheFilm novelization of the film]] downplays the more grandiose high fantasy elements of the plot, and tries to tell a slightly more grounded human story. Notably, it mostly eliminates the subplot about Snow White being TheChosenOne and an incarnation of Life and Ravenna being a WalkingWasteland and an incarnation of Death. Also, instead of being an ancient evil who simply DoesNotLikeMen and has made a hobby of killing kings, in the novel Ravenna is a gypsy woman seeking revenge personally against the King, Snow White's father, for a pogrom against her village he supposedly ordered many years ago when she was a child.

Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodTactics: The beach and castle battle is hilariously bad, with an unsupported cavalry charge against a castle on one side, and the castle's soldiers not bothering to drop the portcullis or close the gate on the other, instead firing a token few catapults at the approaching cavalry.

Added DiffLines:

* InformedAttractiveness: Snow White is ''constantly'' described as being more beautiful than Ravenna, which is an important plot point.
* InformedAttribute: Snow White is supposed to be so loving, compassionate and full of life that people fall in love with her only by looking at her, something that is brought up over and over again. However, she never displays a greater amount of emotion or caring than several other characters of the film - and often displays ''less'' of it.

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Everyone hates Ravenna. They're also completely terrified of her. While talking with Snow White in the forest [[spoiler:in the guise of William]], she even admits this.



* {{Xenafication}}: In this version, [[JeanneDArchetype Snow White]] goes UsefulNotes/JoanOfArc on her enemies.

* JeanneDArchetype: Snow White is given the JoanOfArc treatment in many ways. She acts as a symbol of resistance to a foreign usurper, fights in plate armour, and is considered something of a living saint.

* WouldHitAGirl: When the dwarves capture Snow White and the Huntsman, one suggests gutting Eric and leaving Snow to rot. "I don't like hurting girls." Another dwarf says casually that he does, so the first dwarf says that's all right them.

** The part where Snow White enters the Dark Forest while fleeing capture. The manner in which she mourns her horse's loss as it gets stuck in the bog is reminiscent of how [[TheNeverEndingStory Atreyu]] mournfully watching Artax die in the Swamp of Sadness.
