* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In some versions where the wolf tricks the girl into eating some of Grandma's dead body and blood, a cat suddenly comes to call her a slut because she eats her grandma... then the cat is never heard again.

* OlderThanTheyThink: This story's origins are [[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/6142964/Fairy-tales-have-ancient-origin.html even older than Perrault]].
** Also often a point people think the HotterAndSexier versions of the story are a new idea. Even though versions where the girl is older and hints of sex or direct sex used to be a regular part of the story.

* FantasticAesop: Don't talk to rapists or your grandmother will get eaten.



* RuleOfSymbolism: There are lots of possible underlying meanings to the story, mostly to do with growing up and/or [[FreudWasRight sex]]. The color of the girl's hood is usually given some significance -- even though subsequent collection of French folk tales found that it was a detail that Perrault added; the folk tales do not specify the color of the hood. A more likely symbol occurs in the regional variants that have her choose between a Path of Pins and a Path of Needles - girls learning to be young women were said to be "gathering pins," while needles had a definite sexual meaning (prostitutes would even indicate their profession by wearing needles in their sleeves).

** Such as Perrault so far being the first known to ever used "red" importantly in the story
** Bringing up sex symbolism even though the versions where sex was in the story predate both Perrault and Brothers Grimm and were not included in their versions.
** Werewolf inclusion, a lot of people think this is a modern addition even though older versions did indeed call the wolf a "loup garou"

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The Big Bad Wolf. While people know him to be a predator who tricks a little girl into telling him about her grandmother, other versions have a more disturbing take on him. The song, "Little Red Riding Hood", has him be a StalkerWithACrush who just wants to walk with Red through the woods. Other darker versions have him be a sexual predator who tries to take Red by force. Yikes.
