** "Literature/SleepingBeauty" by Creator/CharlesPerrault. Sleeping Beauty simply wakes up after 100 years, and the prince either just happens to be there at the right time or, as played in the ''Anime/GrimmsFairytaleClssics'', by [[BecauseDestinySaysSo being destined to be the one to wake her up]]. Like with Snow White, Disney's ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' has almost superseded the original version. (And of course, in Giambattista Basile's "Literature/SunMoonAndTalia", a forerunner to Perrault's "Sleeping Beauty", there is no kiss either.[[note]]The prince [[DudeShesLikeInAComa raped her]] and she gave birth to twins. One of the babies crawled up to her body and suckled the flax out of her finger, reviving her.[[/note]])

* Subverted in ''Anime/GrimmFairytaleClassics'' and its version of ''Briar Rose/Sleeping Beauty'': what wakes up Briar Rose ''isn't'' a kiss but the arrival of [[BecauseDestinySaysSo the prince destined to wake her up from her curse]]. They ''do'' share a very cute BigDamnKiss after she wakes up, however.

* ''Film/{{Maleficent}}'' changes up the formula. [[spoiler:The true love of the kiss is not Philip's romantic desire for Aurora, but the more maternal love that the title character felt for her.

When the formula. fairies drag Philip to Aurora's bedroom and tell him to kiss her, he points out that he has only spoken to her ''once'', isn't sure whether it is appropriate to talk of ''love'' so early on, and really doesn't feel it is right to kiss her.[[spoiler:The true love of the kiss is not Philip's romantic desire for Aurora, but the more maternal love that the title character felt for her.
