* DarkIsNotEvil: The Snow Queen herself is the antagnoist dark force but at the same time is far and apart one of the least overtly evil ones in fairy tales.

* GenderFlip: In ''Frozen'', Kristoff takes heavy basis from the Robber Girl.



* RelatedInTheAdaptation: The Summer Witch is often made to be the Snow Queen's sister. In the Hallmark adaptation, the Princess and the Robber Queen are also made her sisters as well, having the four represent the four seasons. Taken to its logical extreme in Disney's ''Frozen'', though exactly whom Anna represents (Gerda, a female Kai, or even the Summer Witch) is debatable.

* AnimatedAdaptation: A Russian version made in 1957, for one, which actually received 2 different English dubs. A second Russian adaptation using CGI was produced in 2012. There is also an [[Anime/TheSnowQueen2005 anime adaptation]]. Also the Queen Nehellenia arc in ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' is based on "The Snow Queen". ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' is an adaptation, though little of the original story remains.

* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: The Queen being all cold and dangerous is often not very well liked even if he only real crime in the story is taking in a cursed runaway.

* DarkIsNotEvil: One cinematic adaptation had the demon/troll/whatever that created the mirror doing so in order to show mankind how rotten it is, and heavily regreted having created it when it broke. Also, ''Faerie Tale Theatre's'' version implied that the [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation Snow Queen took Kai to give him the opportunity to save him from himself.]] She also takes care of that troll at the end...

c* AutomatonHorse: Sadly averted with Gerda's poor reindeer. In the musical, she gets off because the snow gets too heavy for even the reindeer.
