* RevengeSVP: The wicked fairy takes not being invited to the baptismal celebrations rather personally. In Matthew Bourne's adaptation, the wicked fairy herself allowed the king and queen to have the child in the first place. Unfortunately, the king forgot to invite her to the baptismal celebrations afterward, and the wicked fairy took the apparent lack of gratitude personally and vowed her revenge.

Unfortunately, [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen his mother]], who has ogre blood, is jealous of the prince's new wife, and when the prince leaves on matters of state, she demands to have the princess' young children, and then the princess herself, killed and cooked for her supper. The cook manages to hide the unfortunate family and fool the queen with various cooked animals instead. This all comes to naught when the queen hears the princess and her kids at the cook's house, however, and she prepares a big pot of nasty, venemous creatures to kill them. Fortunately, the prince arrives home [[BigDamnHeroes just in time]], and the queen falls into the pot of nasties, dying a KarmicDeath and leaving everyone to live HappilyEverAfter. (In an alternate ending, the queen, thinking wife and kids are safely dead, realizes her son may not be so happy about that and tries to pass herself off as the princess. The prince works it out by [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything asking the marriage bed.]] Queen is duly put to death and prince is reunited with princess and kids.)

''Curse of Briar Rose,'' the first of the ''VideoGame/DarkParables'' games, uses a sort of composite of the Grimm and Perrault versions to create a backstory for the sleeping princess, who has been sealed inside a castle in Scotland for a thousand years. When the prince kissed her, it woke up everyone in the castle ''except'' her, and he himself died from her curse. Now, the seal on the castle is broken, and giant briar plants are escaping into the city. Briar Rose herself is a significant character in the series, and more parts of her story are revealed as the subsequent games unfold.

* TrueLovesKiss: In Perrault's version, the princess wakes by herself when the prince enters her chamber; in the Grimms' version, the princes wakes her with a kiss. However, both times the prophesied 100 years of sleep were up, so even in "Briar Rose" the kiss is not the condition to break the curse.

Once upon a time, a little girl was born that was exceptionally beautiful. Due to jealousy, a wicked witch wanted her dead. She ended up being raised in fosterage in the forest by magical midgets, but eventually the queen found a way to poison her and put her in a coma resistant to aging. Eventually, Prince Charming showed up, kissed the girl and woke her up, and slew the evil witch.

Unsurprisingly, Creator/{{Disney}} disregarded these earlier versions when they animated ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' in 1959, following the Grimms in omitting the whole second part of Perrault's tale, and incorporating several songs from the 1890 ''Sleeping Beauty'' ballet by Creator/PyotrIlyichTchaikovsky.

Still older versions of the same tale type, among them "Literature/SunMoonAndTalia", replace the prince with an already married king. In these versions, [[ValuesDissonance he rapes the princess]] while she lies sleeping and she gives birth to twins before waking up when one of the babies sucks the splinter out of her finger. The cannibalistic queen in this case is the king's wife. Compare Literature/TheBrownBearOfTheGreenGlen.

In another, even {{darker|AndEdgier}} variant, when the princess wakes and realizes what had been done to her, she's so enraged that ''[[ImAHumanitarian she]]'' eats the babies. Wow.

Added DiffLines:

* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: In Perrault's version, the sleep that falls over the rest of the castle is not part of the curse, but an additional enchantment cast by the good fairy over the castle's servants so that the Princess will not have to wake up alone and without aid in a hundred years. Nobody bothers to ask the servants how ''they'' feel about waking up in a hundred years with all their family and friends dead.

Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfSeven: In Perrault's version, the princess has seven fairy godmothers (eight if you count the wicked fairy). Does not apply to the Grimms' version, where there are twelve good fairies.
