*What I mean is, why don't any of the myriads of villains use Pinocchio, who due to the Blue Fairy's spell that created him CannotTellALie, to extract valuable information?

**And as for the hearts... it's just the nature of the spell? I mean it's shown that once you've ripped out someone's heart, you can just crush it in your hand to kill someone, so the effect is much the same, with the added benefit that you can now use the heart to control them. Presumably the spell does not allow you to rip someone's heart out lethally, and it's not like Regina or Cora are actually physically strong enough to punch a hole in someone's chest and pull out their heart. They're removing the hearts with magic, not with physical strength, so if the spell doesn't kill the subject by doing it, it won't kill them.

** Emma DID use guns early on in Seasons One and Two. She tried using a pistol against Maleficent's dragon form, and then again after being sent to the Enchanted Forest. They didn't work. At all. The second time, Mary chewed her out for it, and pointed out that doing things "the modern way" (so to speak) wouldn't work in their world. As for the apple turnover, Rumplestiltskin EXPLICITLY told Regina that if she killed Emma, the entire Dark Curse would collapse. Regina needed a way to permanently deal with Emma without killing her-- hence the sleeping potion.

As Emma spent the entire first and second season TRYING to be GenreSavvy about dealing with fairy tail problems, and they either didn't work or backfired, so it's small surprise she stopped bothering after awhile.

[[folder:The steadfast insistance on doing things "the fairy tale way"...]]
*...borders on JustEatGilligan levels. Like the apple turnover. Why not spike the turnover with regular lethal poison? Same thing with the hearts...why not rip the hearts "the regular way", the way that kills the victim? Why don't the heroes or the villains ever think of using guns? And then there's Merida's CharacterDerailment, where she forgets all of the fighting skills she had in the original movie in order to rely exclusively on the Bear Potion. The mundane solutions may not be "fairy tale" enough, but they are far more effective.

* What is that wolf that showed up in the first season to lead the sheriff towards finding out the truth behind Storybrooke? It can't be Ruby, as this wolf looks completely different from her wolf form. And it's not all in the sheriff's head since Emma could also see the wolf. How did the wolf know about all the things it led the sheriff to? Why did it only guide the sheriff and never anyone else, even after his death?

* What is that wolf that showed up in the first season to lead the sheriff towards finding out the truth behind Storybrooke? Was that supposed to be Ruby as the wolf? Its appearance doesn't seem to match Ruby's wolf form, and if it is supposed to be Ruby, that leads to several other questions, such as: How could she turn into a wolf without magic? How did she know about the things she lead the sheriff to? Why did she specifically choose to guide the sheriff and nobody else, even after the sheriff's death?

* When August started turning back into wood, he was in Phuket. He sounded pretty urgent about getting to a hospital. So, why take a three-and-a-half hour flight to Hong Kong?
