** In ''Hoodwinked'', the trope is applied to Boingo, who is close enough to Red to know her on a first name basis, and he also poses as a friendly passerby to send the Wolf and Twitchy on a "[[YouCantMissIt shortcut]]" to Granny's house.

* LighterAndFluffier: The modern version of the story, which adds a happy ending and downplays the Freudian overtones.

* AdaptationalAlternateEnding: Depending on which adaptation of the story you're reading or watching, ''Little Red Riding Hood'' either ends with the wolf eating Red and ending on that to serve as a cautionary tale to young ladies to beware of "wolves", especially those who are "charming, quiet, unassuming, complacent, and sweet" (the original Creator/CharlesPerrault version of the story ends this way), or has the girl and her grandmother be rescued by a passing huntsman or other benefactor, whereupon they may take revenge upon the wolf (in "Rotkäppchen", they fill the wolf's belly with stones); as mentioned earlier, this alternate version may have come about from the influence of ''Literature/The WolfAndTheSevenYoungKids'' or similar tales.

** Interestingly, the versions preceding Perrault's often feature the girl rescuing herself through quick wits, or even with a more proactive grandmother's aid, who avoids getting eaten in the first place.

* FracturedFairyTale: Thanks to its [[SmallReferencePools immediate recognizability]], this is a favorite tale for fracturing in just about every possible way. Popular twists include making the story HotterAndSexier, turning Red into LittleRedFightingHood, making the wolf StupidEvil, playing up [[IdiotHero how stupid Red is]] to not recognize her "granny" is the wolf, doing anything involving [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Werewolves]], or mangling the whole thing with PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad.
** [[OlderThanTheyThink Although some of these are more reconstructing older versions than fracturing in historical context.]]

**Though meant to be a parody, this version of Red isn't wrong; look no further then the pre-Perrault version of the story for a Red who can "solve [her] own problems without a man's help".

* In the ''Literature/ElementalMasters'' book ''Blood Red'' the first chapter (and the original short story that inspired it) is a retelling of this. The rest of the book is the main character all grown up and kicking monster ass.
** ''Discworld/WitchesAbroad'' (as with ''Into the Woods'' and ''Once Upon a Time'', a fairytale mashup which includes a version of this story)
