* ValuesDissonance: The story's portrayal of royalty (the widowed queen, princess, king, and prince) being inherently kinder than the servants (the chambermaid and goose boy) can seem a bit iffy to modern audiences.

* BeautyEqualsGoddness: The princess.


Added DiffLines:

* ExtremeDoormat: The princess is too humble to reprimand her maidservant for disobeying her, even when she has her mother's protective charm still in her hand.


Added DiffLines:

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: The chambermaid. After the king asks what punishment she thinks would be most fitting for someone who has committed the crime she (doesn't realize he already knows she) has committed, it's carried out forthwith. See FamilyUnfriendlyDeath.


Added DiffLines:

* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: The king alone notices something off about his son's supposed bride and the goose boy's story about the insubordinate goose girl, so he takes it upon himself to find out what happened (rather than sending a servant to it for him) and resolves the whole story's conflict single-handedly.


Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfThree: The mother gives the princess a handkerchief with three drops of blood as magical protection, and the princess is forced to be a goose girl for presumably three days; or at least Falada's decapitated head informs her that her mother's heart would break if she knew followed closely by the goose girl asking the wind to chase Conrad's hat three times before the king saves her from her situation.
* RuleOfTwo: The evil chambermaid pounces on her chance to switch places with the princess the second time she dips down to the stream to get some water.


Added DiffLines:
