* ObliviouslyBeautiful: In many retellings and adaptations, Rapunzel doesn't know how attractive she is. Considering her ''very'' sheltered upbringing (she's never seen a man, after all), it's no surprise.

* AmbiguouslyEvil: It's not clear whether Mother Gothel can be truly called malevolent.

* AmbiguouslyEvil: It's not clear whether Mother Gothel can be truly called malevolent. She did force her neighbors to give up their newborn child, but on the other hand, they did wrong her by stealing from her. Moreover, considering how willingly they seem to have handed her over, it's entirely possible that their daughter was better off with her. There's no mention of her abusing, exploiting or even neglecting Rapunzel. She did lock her adoptive daughter into a tower, but it's implied this was done out of an overblown protective instinct, rather than possessiveness. It's also noteworthy that she doesn't actually do anything to the Prince. So, is she evil or not? Numerous retellings and adaptations try to answer this question, one way or another.

* DumbBlonde: Rapunzel can come off as this in the Grimm version, where she carries an IdiotBall in her moment of forgetfulness to ask the witch why she is heavier to bring up the side of the tower with her hair than the prince.

* LawOfInverseFertility: Her parents had long wanted and never had a child. Apparently the witch also wanted a child. And in some versions, Rapunzel inconveniently becomes pregnant.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: In the revised edition of the BrothersGrimm's story, Rapunzel (handling the IdiotBall) asks the witch why she's so much heavier to bring up the tower than the prince. This was changed from the original version, determined to be [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids unfriendly for children]], in which Rapunzel innocently asked [[TeenPregnancy why her dress was getting so tight around the middle]].
