* DecompositeCharacter: In the first edition, Snow White's birth mother who wishes for her to have all the traits she is known for (white skin, black hair and red lips) and wicked stepmother were one in the same. When the Grimm brothers decided that the idea of a mom attempting to murder child was too disturbing, they split the character into these two personas.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Almost everyone gets this many diffrent adaptions.
** In one musical adaption called ''Genealogy of Red, White and Black'' Snow White's birth mother abuses her, which starts Snow White's SanitySlippage, but she completly snaps after Prince "Charming" rapes her, causing her to shed her AllLovingHeroine persona and go on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
** An adaption by the band {{SoundHorizon}}, has another intresting spin on the girl. Snow White is accidently awoken by the Necorphilac Prince who becomes absolutely distraught at the sight of the beautiful "corpse" coming back to life. She then forces him to marry her and tortures the Queen, [[spoiler: who's implied to be her real mother turned abusive, [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness the role of "step-mother" being an imposed image by Snow White]]]], to death while [[LaughingMad cackling like a mad woman]].

** "Richilda" retells the story from the stepmother's perspective. The fun part is that it predates Grimms' by decades.
