* 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.

* 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.
