* RealityIsUnrealistic: Experiments have determined that human hair actually ''is'' strong enough to support an adult human's weight (even blond hair, which is weaker than darker hair), as long as it's anchored to something first so that it's not pulling directly on the scalp. All early versions of the tale mention that Rapunzel ties her hair to a hook in the wall before letting someone climb it; this is seen in ''Tangled'' as well.

* LuredIntoATrap: After the witch cuts off Rapunzel's hair and banishes her, she lets down the shorn locks when the Prince, unaware of what happened, calls to Rapunzel. Though what happens next depends on the version, her intentions for him are clearly not good.

* TextileWorkIsFeminine: It's implied that Rapunzel is a skilled weaver, since most versions have her ask the Prince to bring her skeins of silk which she'll use to make a ladder to escape the tower with.
