* AdaptationalBadass: The witch in the original tale never displayed much magic. Gothel here is able to use her magic to create the tower in the first place and imprison someone inside it forever.



* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: [[spoiler: Rapunzel is a long lost princess in this version, when she was just a peasant girl in the original tale]].



* FramingDevice: The story is framed by Barbie telling the story to Shelly to give her painting inspiration.



* GirlsNeedRoleModels: Rapunzel is a smart, kind and mature young woman - who is also diligent and has a love of art.
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple: Rapunzel at the masquerade.



* GracefulLadiesLikePurple: Rapunzel at the masquerade.



* ImprobableHairstyle: Subverted. Rather than the fairy tale, Rapunzel's hair goes just down to the floor. That's actually possible in real life, depending on the person's genes. She also keeps it braided so that it's out of the way. And she's only imprisoned in the tower for a day or two, making the maintenance believable.



* PrincessesPreferPink: Rapunzel wears a pink dress as her regular ensemble, though her fancier dress for the masquerade is lavender.
** Though it is a tad strange that someone raised as a servant is dressed better than the village peasants.
* RapunzelHair: Yes, but it's subverted in that her hair is floor-length; certainly long but not enough to reach the bottom of a tower.
** Pretty much played straight when Rapunzel has a dream of Prince Stefan visiting her, as she does have tower-length hair. But then it's over.

* InNameOnly: This film bears little resemblance the Brothers Grimm fairy tale by the same name. All it has in common is Rapunzel, a witch, and a tower. The focus is instead on a magic paintbrush.
