* AdaptationalBadass: In the 1973 Czech version, "Three Nuts for Cinderella", Cinderella rides horses and is a sharpshooter. During her second meeting with the prince (while she's disguised as a hunter) she impresses him and his hunter friends with shooting a flying hawk with a crossbrow, then a pinecone of a tree far away.

* AdaptedOut: In the 1973 Czech version, Cinderella has one stepsister instead of two. And there is no Fairy Godmother. Instead, Cinderella is given three magic hazelnuts who each reveal a different outfit for her depending on when she needs them in the story. First is a hunter's outfit, then a ball gown, and lastly a wedding dress.

The first is when she comes across him and his friends hunting in the woods and amuses herself by annoying them and making them chase after her. The second is when she disguises herself as a hunter and impresses them with her aiming skills.

The quintessential RagsToRoyalty story, the best known versions in the western world are based on the one written by Creator/CharlesPerrault in the 17th century. If, on hearing the name Cinderella, you think of fairy godmothers, glass slippers, and a pumpkin turned into a coach, you're thinking of Perrault. In 1950, [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney]]'s ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'' adapted Perrault's story into a movie, cementing it in people's minds as '''the''' story of Cinderella. [[note]]Unless, of course, you're Czech, Slovak, German or Norwegian, in which case you're probably thinking of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T%C5%99i_o%C5%99%C3%AD%C5%A1ky_pro_Popelku this one]], notably lacking in pumpkins, glass footwear, and godmothers of any extraction.[[/note]]

* FairyGodmother: Perrault's version is the TropeCodifier. When anyone after him (and especially after the disney adaption) thinks of one of these, they think of kindly old women in robes who say "bibi-bobiti-boo!"
* FairyTale: A very old tale teaching a morale and involves the supernatural.

* AdaptationalHeroism: It's fairly common to see works where one of the two stepsisters (usually the youngest) has a HeelFaceTurn, or shows HiddenDepths that lead to a redemption. ''Film/EverAfter,'' ''[[Literature/TalesOfTheFiveHundredKingdoms The Fairy Godmother]],'' and even Disney's later ''{{Disney/Cinderella}}'' sequels all do this.

* NoNameGiven: One of the stepsister sister is named Javotte but the other characters don't have names. Cinderella's real name is rarely given, though English variants usually imply Ella is her real name. It is often a form of Mary or Katie. Madame D'aulnoy used "Finetta" in her early version.
