Cinderella.
** The Grand Duke. The poor guy is a nervous wreck in many of the scenes that involve the possibility of something going wrong with the king's plan to get Prince Charming to marry (notable examples include how frantic he is when Cinderella flees the ball, how terrified he is when psyching himself up to tell the king that she's gone, and how upset he is when the slipper is broken.)

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Some, like [[TheNostalgiaCritic Doug Walker]], see Cinderella as a broken down victim of domestic abuse who's been so conditioned since early childhood by her [[AbusiveParents abusive stepmother]] to think she doesn't deserve better that she starts off believing it, until her taste of life and happiness away from her abusive family (at the ball, with the prince) convinces her that she ''is'' worth it, and that she needs to ''get out''. (This is also why he dislikes [[Disney/Cinderella2015 the remake]]--it makes her more independent from the beginning, but he thinks that just makes her look stupid for not leaving.)

* BrokenBase: Some viewers hold it up as a true Disney classic and recognise it as the studio's return to form after the troubling World War II years. Others find it bland and unmemorable - it has notably less of a cult base than ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'', ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' or ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp''.

** Does Cinderella look best as a strawberry blonde with a white dress, like she is depicted in the film, or does she look better as a light blonde with a blue dress, like she does in merchandising?



* LauncherOfAThousandShips: Though not quite the shipping magnet as newer Disney royalty such as Elsa or Ariel, Cinderella gets treated this way a lot (especially when compared to the other two 'classic' princesses). A good portion of this is thanks to the [[Disney/CinderellaIIIATwistInTime third film]]. It's one of the best received Disney made-for-video sequels. Fans really took to Cinderella's {{Xenafication}} and more in-depth characterization, which boosted her popularity and subsequently how shippable she is.



* WhatAnIdiot: You could say that Cinderella picks up the IdiotBall in the climax, when she goes completely dizzy over the Grand Duke touring the houses, looking for the mysterious girl who danced with the prince all night. It's what makes Lady Tremaine suspect her and lock her in her room, after all. But is it stupid, or is it just a perfectly understandable reaction to learning that you could be marrying a prince?
** Whatever your opinion, you have to admit you wouldn't get your happy BSOD without it.

* WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: Cinderella is generally used as the UrExample of the "weak, passive" DamselInDistress PrincessClassic that gets bashed in this post-feminist era. While [[SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Snow White]] and [[SleepingBeauty Aurora]] are also pretty meek, they get at least a little bit of leeway since there's action ''in'' their films, even if they don't participate in it (the dwarves chasing the Evil Queen off a cliff; Philip battling Maleficint). Cinderella gets no such leeway.

* SpecialEffectFailure: Cinderella's flying carriage in the 1965 version looks like a cel or cut-out puppet with a painted background sliding behind it.
** During the shots of Cinderella inside the carriage, the "countryside" seen in her window looks like it was added with a chroma key effect.

* MisBlamed: Fans of the {{Grimmifi|cation}}ed version of ''Cinderella'' tend to accuse Disney of toning the story down by skipping over the gory scenes. Actually, the version Disney chose to adapt, the original story by Creator/CharlesPerrault, didn't have any gore to begin with, and the Grimm's version is based off of Perrault's. In reality, the original Cinderella is most likely the Chinese version of the story, Yeh-Shen, and that is debated.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverLiveItDown: The Prince for being in the film for [[SmallRoleBigImpact thirty seconds despite his big role in the story]], and for trying to find his true love via shoe size rather than facial recognition. (Though most viewers who accuse him of this seem to forget that the King, who was so desperate to get his son hitched to ''any girl'' ASAP so [[IWantGrandkids he could start giving him grand kids ASAP]], [[LoopholeAbuse deliberately misconstrued the prince's vow]] and used his ExactWords[[note]]The context makes it clear that what the Prince meant was that he would not rest until he found the girl who ''owned'' the slipper, but the king chose to zero in on the words "fits this slipper"[[/note]] to force the Prince to marry the first girl to fit the slipper, that the King himself sent out behind the Prince's back.)

* GirlShowGhetto: The Franchise/DisneyPrincess franchise pushed several Disney movies into this, but ''Cinderella'' might have fallen the most deeply. The [[WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyPlatinumEditions Platinum Edition]] DVD has a girlier set of games than any other movie in the collection, and the ''Cinderella'' Trilogy Blu-Ray/DVD Boxset released in conjunction with the movies' [[WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyDiamondEditions Blu-Ray/Digital HD debuts]] comes packaged in a pink jewelry box. In the UK, ''Cinderella'' [=DVDs=] actually got pulled out of the Disney Vault for a few weeks of 2011, so families anticipating the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton could share them with their daughters.
