* 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.
