* KarmaHoudini:
** Arguably, [[spoiler:Ella's stepfamily. While Hattie never marries the prince (or at all), neither she nor her the rest of her family are punished for abusing Ella.]] Though [[spoiler:Dame Olga is still married to Ella's greedy, unscrupulous father, and is magically forced to love him. One also could argue that [[TheDogBitesBack Ella being able to fight back]] (among other things, she reclaimed the necklace that Hattie took from her) is a blow to their pride, as is the knowledge that Ella ''could'' have them all arrested, should she want to.]]
** Lucinda to a minor extent, though [[spoiler:she changes her ways after learning just how terribly her "blessings" affect the people she chooses.]] There is the fact that there are dozens of children and married couples that she has cursed who aren't going to be cured anytime soon, however, and [[spoiler:who may lack Ella's stubbornness, like her father.]]

** Several, in fact. Lucinda's "blessings" tend to focus on making their recipients better children, where "better" is dictated by the sort of book which declares that the proper behavior for a child is to sit quietly and behave like a miniature adult. She's always baffled when the recipient is unhappy with their [[IncrediblyLamePun Stepford Life]].

* OurElvesAreDifferent: Our elves strongly resemble plants and place extreme value on beautifully crafted objects. They don't actually place much of a trade value on things, either; [[spoiler: while Ella's father takes quite a while trying to find a way to trade for some of the Elvish masterworks because of their trade value, they give one freely to Ella because she's entranced by the simple beauty of the piece rather than its monetary value.]]
