* In the original "Literature/{{Rapunzel}}" FairyTale, the prince is blinded, and the heroine's SwissArmyTears restore his eyesight. In Disney's adaptation ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', of all places, the villain, in an odd moment of Grimification in an otherwise Disneyfied story, [[spoiler:''stabs and kills him'', and Rapunzel holds her dead lover in her arms before her tears bring him back to life]]. What's more is that the story really plays up the Freudian elements between Rapunzel and her stepmother - showing Gothel as a textbook emotional abuser. Additionally the stepmother [[spoiler: gets a [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath rather dark]] DeathByAdaptation]] when she just disappeared from the original.

* SoundHorizon's 7th Story CD Märchen (German for "fairytale") is about [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin fairytales]]. They're quite dark, being based on the Grimm versions instead of the Disney versions, and then there's also a hint about there being a "real" side and a "fantasy/ lie" side to them and the fantastic events being metaphors for more mundane, but equally (or, in some cases, more) dark events (Idoko/Goldmary falling into a well, dying and her younger sister spreading the plague, for example).

* ''PandoraHearts'' is a a manga based on ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' (even though the book isn't technically a fairytale) that can be very dark, violent and sometimes creepy.

* ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'' is all about this. The intro to one splatbook involves several classic fairy tales with a ''[[NewWorldOfDarkness World of Darkness]]'' twist - the Big Bad Wolf is a [[TabletopGame/WerewolfTheForsaken werewolf]], Snow White becomes a [[TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem vampire]] (of course), all told to impress a [[TheFairFolk True Fae]]...

* ''VideoGame/SoulSacrifice'' ''[[UpdatedRerelease Delta]]'' introduces Archfiends based off of Grimm's fairy tales to the roster. For those unfamiliar, Archfiends are the result of people making [[ADealWithTheDevil deals]] with the [[ArtifactOfDoom Sacred Chalice]], and subsequently mutating into a monster that wouldn't be out of place in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}''. Cinderella, for example, is a centauroid centipede-beast with hundreds of glass legs and the distorted face of the prince growing out the back. Hansel and Gretel is an [[GeniusLoci entire candy village]] with a pair of giant locusts covered in frosting in the vague shape of a little boy and girl popping out of the gingerbread houses. Red Riding Hood is a giant wolf-like suit of armor with the skeletal face of a witch erupting from its midriff. Should just give you an idea of how [[NightmareFuel twisted]] the [[CrapsackWorld world of]] Soul Sacrifice is.

** ''Film/SuckerPunch'' takes this to its logical extreme by turning the story into a violent, [[FetishFuel hyper-sexualized]] action movie. Directed by [[Creator/ZackSnyder the same guy]] who did ''ThreeHundred'', ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' and the ''Film/DawnOfTheDead2004'' remake.

* [=McFarlane's=] Twisted Fairy Tales. The fourth series of the [=McFarlane's=] Monsters series of statuettes/action figures was themed around the Grimmification of fairy tales and children's stories, to the extent of nightmarish images mostly involving BodyHorror, and combining this with a good deal of FetishFuel and FanService for the sufficiently-twisted collector. Red Riding Hood is dressed in a dominatrix-style bikini outfit, wields a large carving knife and holds the disemboweled wolf with dead grandma pouring out of its innards. Peter Pumpkin-Eater is [[ImAHumanitarian a cannibal]] who stores dismembered body parts in a hollow pumpkin, Little Miss Muffet wears a [[OfCorsetsSexy pink corset]] and faces down with a GiantSpider, Humpty Dumpty has maggots crawling out of his broken corpse and Gretel is in a goth/dominatrix outfit and fishnets mopping up blood [[http://www.spawn.com/features/monsters4/main.html All cheerfully chronicled in the form of a storybook on this promotional webpage]].

* AnneRice's ''Sleeping Beauty'' trilogy retold that [[Literature/SleepingBeauty particular fairy tale]] as a work of erotica. That Rice, whose Vampire books are squicky enough as is, chose to publish them under a pseudonym should tell the reader all one needs to know about them.
