* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Bigby is a very divisive and controversial figure. Some perceive his treatment as a glorification and rationalisation for an amoral savage thrill-killing callous cannibalistic social-Darwinist VillainProtagonist, that represents the absolutely worst that real life humanity has to offer, whereas others simply see him as a badass or a responsible family man.

Added DiffLines:

** Small one, but the fact that all of [[spoiler:Snow and Bigby's]] children can transform between human and wolf (and any other creature they should desire) only seems to serve as plot detail when they're children, as they often transform into wolves and even has to learn how to appear human most of the time. As they get older and start having more character-centric stories, however, their love of transforming into wolves appears to go away as they all eventually stay human on-screen all the time. It would have been interesting to see at least one of the children find out he/she preferred being a wolf and chose to stay permanently in ''that'' form, as opposed to his/her siblings and father. At the very least have some of them still occasionally transform into their father's real species which they loved so much as children, instead of making it look like they completely forgot about that ability in the end.

** Reynard Fox plays a big role in some of the first issues as a cunning {{Badass}} of great help to Snow White and the Fable Community. After the Revolution arc is over with however, he gets reduced to a background character for the rest of the series.

** With ''Series/OnceUponATime'' due to both having the initial high-concept of "fairy tale characters trapped in the modern world". However, this was mostly in the run-up to ''Once Upon A Time'' being first broadcast, it dropped quite a lot when the first few episodes of the TV show made it clear how significantly different the actual plots and styles of the works were. Despite this, many Fables' fans still blame ''Once Upon A Time'' for being the main reason why the comics hasn't been adapted to another media yet.

Added DiffLines:

** For much of the series Bigby maintains his status under the General Amnesty via generous LoopholeAbuse. Notably, he swears to kill numerous people, but then declares his vengeance suspended until some unknown later time. It seems like those Fables would have been obvious targets when he CameBackWrong. Instead, he's [[spoiler: BrainwashedAndCrazy.]]


Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallySympathetic: If you're pro-choice Frau Totenkinder ([[CompleteMonster at least after her backstory]]) probably comes across as somewhere between a PragmaticHero, RetiredMonster, and OnlySaneMan. Particularly when you consider that everyone in Fabletown would likely be dead a dozen times over if she'd lost her power.
