Long, long ago, in a time of magic and dragons, there lived a girl named Rapunzel, who had the most beautiful, radiant hair the world had ever seen. But Rapunzel's life was far from wonderful. She lived as a servant of Gothel, a jealous, scheming witch who kept her hidden deep in a forbidding forest, guarded by the enormous dragon Hugo and surrounded by an enchanted glass wall.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Gothel wasn't an ideal mother in the original story, but she wasn't an emotionally abusive slave-driver to Rapunzel like here. [[spoiler:Also, in the original story, Gothel got Rapunzel out of a(n admittedly rather questionable) deal with her father, rather than kidnapping her out of petty revenge. She certainly never intended to start a war either]].

* CuteClumsyGirl: Penelope, whose big tail and [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength untrained fire and strength]] can jump up at the worst times (and yet often conveniently work out for the plot).

* AdultFear: Wilhelm's baby daughter is abducted without a trace and he has no idea where she is or if she's even alive for close to twenty years.



* DisproportionateRetribution: In the past, Gothel was [[spoiler: rejected by her love interest, Wilhelm]]. In revenge, she decided to [[spoiler: kidnap his daughter, frame an innocent man for it and start a war between the two kingdoms in the hopes they'll destroy each other]].



** Hugo also serves Gothel as a ''literal'' dragon, though in the end he [[spoiler: turns on her to help Rapunzel]].



* FrameUp: It's revealed that Gothel [[spoiler: framed King Frederick for the kidnapping of King Wilhelm's daughter to start a war between them]].



* LostLongRelative: [[spoiler: Rapunzel]] is revealed to be the long lost child of [[spoiler: Wilhelm and his wife]].



* LoveMakesYouEvil: It turns out that [[spoiler: Gothel kidnapped Rapunzel and framed Frederick after Wilhelm broke up with her, later claiming she did it all out of love for him]].



* NotGoodWithRejection: Gothel, as it turns out.



** Then again, it's possible that Gothel deliberately planted evidence to make Wilhelm believe that [[spoiler: Frederick kidnapped his daughter]], or why else would Wilhelm suspect him in the first place? Even so, the war could probably have been avoided if everyone sat down and talked about it rationally.



* [[WellDoneSonGuy "Well Done, Daughter" Girl]]: Hugo is hardly the nicest father, and has high expectations for Penelope to grow into a mighty dragon.
