** A minor one when Angelica believes she is a princess. To test, they use elements from different fairy tales. First the babies try to climb up her hair. Secondly they try to see if she can feel a pea through a mattress (Chuckie eats the pea so they use a fork instead). Finally they see if a slipper fits her foot. Angelica declares that she has passed and expects the King to pick her up any day.

* Music/{{BIGMAMA}} has a couple songs with this theme:
** In "Keisandakai Cinderella" ("Calculating Cinderella"), the Cinderella manipulates everything to turn out in her favor; she wears the glass slipper even though it makes her foot bleed and cooks and eats her pumpkin carriage. Her ambition and cunning impress the prince, and he ends up falling for her anyway.
** In "Nidonesuru Nemureru Mori no Bijou" ("Sleeping Beauty Goes Back to Sleep") the prince finds Sleeping Beauty and kisses her, but when she doesn't wake up, he wonders if she's dead. Turns out, she did wake up, peeked at the schmuck that interrupted her sleep, decided he wasn't her type, and feigned sleep until he left her alone.

* ''VisualNovel/Cinders'' is a visual novel that takes most of the plot elements from Cinderella and [[PlayedForDrama plays them for drama]]. The stepmother, Carmosa, does what she does because she wants her daughters to end up well off. The stepsisters, Gloria and Sophia, aren't inherently bad people; most of their actions are driven by their desperate desire to please their mother. Cinders can befriend any or all of them throughout the game; it's even possible for Cinders to replace Carmosa as head of the household if she can prove that she's the right person for the job. The Prince himself is hardly a presence compared to Cinders' family and isn't the only available love interest; Cinders can even marry him for the money and power while carrying on an affair with either Tobias, her childhood friend, or Perrault, a member of the King's guard. The fairy godmother is an ominous figure that repeatedly implies that [[DealWithTheDevil her help comes with a price]], and there are implications that [[spoiler: she had a hand in the death of Cinders' mother. The traditional tale of Cinderella itself is even lampshaded: at one point, Cinders mentions having recently read a book about a girl who suffered at the hands of a wicked stepfamily but was eventually saved from her situation by a handsome prince after years of waiting around and doing nothing; she decides that the book is dangerous to girls and that it might give them a "martyr-like attitude".

** These shorts would either focus on one story ("Little Red Walking Hood" and "Cinderella Meets Fella"), while others contained many short stories ("A Gander at Mother Goose" and "Foney Fables").
** One of Creator/ChuckJones' last WB cartoons, "I Was a Teenage Thumb", a blithely absurdist telling of "Literature/TomThumb", was light-years apart from one of his first, the maudlin, Disney-esque "Tom Thumb in Trouble".

Fortunately, he had the renters insurance, so they replaced it all and later the guy whole stole the stuff was caught selling it online and arrested.
