** There's also the fact that Mytho is, yknow, a character. Maybe he's not ageless himself but he doesn't age because he's out of his original story and in another one.

** He seems to just get off on it, but maybe I've watched too many episodes of CriminalMinds.

* Mytho wasnt that good....Couldn't he sacrfice just a piece of his heart just for Ahiru... After he supposedly was going to sacrice all of it anyways... Besides he supposedly had an impulse to help everyone yet he ignored the fact that Ahiru was trapped in duck form...

** I think she's supposed to be TheNarrator of all fairytales and essentially a character herself. She's the literal voice of the text. I also always thought she and Edel were two sides of the same coin, where Edel was the light fairy voice to draw attention to herself to push the plot and TheNarrator was the voice of cold, harsh reality because she was the voice of the inevitable.

*** Also remember that Princess Tutu has his heart shard of ''hope'', specifically. Even with all of his other emotions, without the capacity to feel hope, he can't realistically resist anyway.

** Mytho and the Raven are the only characters with no existence outside of Drosselmeyer's stories (the other characters were all born in the real world), so neither of them are capable of defying him. Presumably they can't act outside of their original characterizations - at any rate, Mytho never finds out about the story-spinning until ''after'' Drosselmeyer has been overthrown. Since the book is actually his (forgotten?) past, Tutu probably represents a strong memory (and most likely regret of some sort, considering his ChronicHeroSyndrome).

** Mytho's actions make even less sense in the end, when everyone is already trying to [[RageAgainstTheAuthor defy the story]] [[ScrewDestiny and their role in it]] by trying to come up with new and creative ways to break everything apart, and Mytho, having gotten all but one shard of his heart back... goes along with Raven's demands and a HostageSituation. Of course, then he tries to fight the Raven and decides to break his heart again rather then give it over... wasn't it obvious from the start that the situation was skewed against him - he'd already been in the exactly same one before, after all, and ought to know how it ended. So my version of explanation of why he did all that... unlike others, who are originally humans forced into their roles in the story [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation (or having chosen them)]], Mytho is a fictional character brought into the semi-real world, so he has a much harder time [[ScrewDestiny defying stories]] or even realizing the implications of following through with them, which would already be a part of defying them - as more GenreSavvy Tutu has demonstrated by not answering the question. Basically, Mytho [[CompletelyMissingThePoint can't make the connection]] between [[StarCrossedLovers storybook Tutu]] and [[MagicalGirl real Tutu in front of him]] as being the same character with the same curse. He's probably better at it after getting his whole heart back - without it, he seems not only emotionless but suprisingly clueless - "What is this feeling I have?"

** Also, at least Ahiru was selected to be put into the story specifically because she cared for the Prince in the first place, when she was still just a duck. Since their feelings develop significantly and even had the power to alter the intended storyline (Rue's sacrifice and Ahiru's selflessness, for instance), they are definitely very true.

* Why does Mytho keep asking Tutu (in the first season anyway) how she feels about him? Fakir claims to have read the story to him, so he ''knows'' she will disappear if she tells him she loves him. In fact, apparently it's his ''favourite part'' of the whole story. Does he want her to vanish or what? Or is it that when he enters his story role, he forgets what he knows about it?

** In retrospect, Princess Tutu's inner monologue during episode 13 shows that she and Rue/Kraehe are more alike than one might think. While Ahiru/Tutu's love is ultimately of a different sort ([[TheFourLove more ''agape'' than ''eros''), she was always thinking of the true Mytho, the prince who could love anyone unconditionally. That's exactly why Rue loved him, as well.

** Anteater Rita isn't a real threat. All she's really trying to do is make Rue jealous and unhappy, and Rue knows this. She also knows that she can get Mytho back just by telling him to, and that without a heart, he's an unsuitable boyfriend for anyone but herself (which is proven when Rita dumps him on her own). The reason she gets possessive later is because a non-heartless Mytho isn't soullessly compliant and his emotions might cause him to decide that he doesn't want to be with her anymore [[spoiler:remember that her father has raised her to think that she is inherently unlovable]], so Tutu's actions represent a genuine threat to her status quo.
