* AliceAllusion: Rosaleen's older sister is called Alice, and the dream starts off following her through a passage of oversized toys that references going down the rabbit hole. She is also color-coded with white, and Rosaleen with red (the White Queen and Red Queen). Later when Rosaleen strays from the beaten path, she follows a white rabbit.



* {{Foreshadowing}}: Rosaleen's mother says "if there's a beast in man, it meets its match in woman". Later when the village men are fighting over whether Rosaleen has been captured, mother throws water on them to cool them off. [[spoiler: And at the end, Rosaleen turns into a wolf to join the Huntsman]].

%%* {{Grimmification}}* {{Grimmification}}: Features graphic werewolf transformations and other characters getting killed by the titular wolves. [[spoiler: Rosaleen also becomes a wolf in the end]].
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Granny is full of 'wisdom' that turns out to be nothing but old wives' tales. Best illustrated by the scene where she tells Rosaleen that the priest is "deaf as a post", and gets an entire branch dropped on her.

* AManIsAlwaysEager[=/=]AllMenArePerverts: Granny's opinion about male sexuality. The mother challenges this. [[spoiler: Turns out that the mother is right.]]

* PetTheDog: Granny is mean and crotchety but she gives Rosaleen bits of genuine affection throughout the film.



* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: Granny is rude to pretty much everyone.



* SomethingAboutARose[=/=]TheTragicRose: The white rose that turns red in the Wolfgirl story could be either, or both, depending on your interpretation.



* TheTragicRose: The white rose that turns red in the Wolfgirl story. The story is a metaphor for a child maturing to an adult, and how they can't return to their childhood innocence again.



* WomanInWhite: Alice at her funeral looks interestingly more like a young bride', than someone who was savaged by wolves.

* NeverWorkWithChildrenOrAnimals: Averted. Not just with the dogs, but filming went fairly smoothly with the actual wolves, as well. (Neil Jordan commended Sarah Patterson on her bravery during the scene where she had to sit right next to and pet one of the wolves.)

* WomanInBlack: Granny, who appears to be a widow. She is the matriarch of the family and the strongest voice of warning against Rosaleen straying from the path. [[spoiler: As it turns out, her words are more restriction than actual warning.]]
