* ConflictingLoyalty: What the Ring cycle is all about. The characters are divided and scattered between their desires and duties. ''Die Walkure'' especially tackles this well, since Brunnhilde states that she is serving Wotan's deepest desires of his heart (helping Siegmund and Sieglinde) while disobeying his commands (kill Siegmunde) which he is forced to do by Fricka. Wotan is forced to punish Brunnhilde and remove her from the Valkyrie even if she is his favorite daughter.

The forges and dark mines of the Nibelungen becomes a mine-shaft and factory setting. This was based on the fact that the Ring cycle was contemporary to this era.

** In ''The Rhine-Gold'', the Rhine-Maidens are three water-women who guard the magical Rhine-Gold, but lose it to Alberich who forges it into a magical ring. In Act 3 of ''Gotterdammerung'', Siegfried, the present owner of Alberich's ring, accidentally encounters the Rhine-Maidens who warn him about the curse of the ring and urge him to return it to the river. When Siegfried dismisses the warning, they predict Siegfried's death, which comes to pass.
** In the beginning of ''Gotterdammerung'', the three Norns are seen weaving the thread of Destiny, and sing a song which predicts the burning of Valhalla and the end of the gods. The thread snaps suddenly, foreshadowing that their prophecy will come true by the end of the opera.

* In ''[[TalesOfTheFiveHundredKingdoms The Sleeping Beauty]]'', the little bird warns Siegfried not to take the ring or mess with Bruunhilde, saying it will be his "[[DoomyDoomsOfDoom DOOM!]]" After a book's length of other adventures, Bruunhilde is awakened by a completely different prince, tells Wotan exactly what she thinks of him and the entire story, and informs him that she took the Ring back to the river maidens herself and put an end to the whole silly misunderstanding.
