* HarsherInHindsight: One of the biggest complaints about Aurora, in spite of being one of the original Disney Princesses, in addition to how [[VanillaProtagonist underwhelming]] her character is, is the disproportionate amount of merchandise/advertising that she receives over some of the other, more popular princesses. Over fifty years after first being introduced, [[Disney/{{Tangled}} Rapunzel]] came along with all of the charisma and personality that she lacks, to the point that some fans are even calling for the latter to take the former's place in the Disney Princess franchise. Not helping matters is how much both characters look alike (especially as both being blondes.)

** Others are more charitable to her and believe her angst is pretty understandable since the revelation abot being a princess and going to the castle overlaps with her ''finding out that her entire life has been a total lie''.

** The ''Maleficent'' movie is considered this by those who would rather the villainess remain evil at heart, instead of being turned into TheWoobie. Or to those who wish she'd been cast as someone other than Angelina Jolie. Or thsoe who feel that the fairies, often seen as the actual heroines of the story, were DemotedToExtra solely to [[SpotlightStealingSquad prop up Maleficient]], ''plus'' applying AdaptationalVillainy to Aurora's kindly dad King Stefan. In fairness, said film is also clearly an AlternateContinuity, and Disney's Animated Canon has always taken precedence over the live-action adaptations.

** During the climactic battle with Maleficent, Phillip's [[BadassCape cape]] gets caught on the branches of the thorny brushes. Clearly, this incident paved the [[MemeticMutation "NO CAPES"]] philosophy in [[WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles a future Disney movie]].

%%MOD NOTE: Don't add Maleficent as a CompleteMonster. She has been ruled out by the Special Efforts forum.

* {{Narm}}: The close-up shot of Aurora when she first wakes up looks ''really'' weird, and perhaps even a bit creepy.

** Was Maleficent ''really'' offended at not being invited? Or did she just curse Aurora [[ForTheEvulz for fun]]?
** There are quite a few people who consider Flora, Fauna and Merryweather to be the ''true'' protagonists of the film. Considering how much focus they get and the fact that they, to an extent, are the ones who really save the day, this isn't an unreasonable viewpoint.

It doesn't help that Phillip and Aurora tend to come off as [[VanillaProtagonist Vanilla Protagonists.]]

** The movie itself. Some fans dismiss it as being sexist for having the PrincessClassic being a DamselInDistress who "doesn't do anything" and has little to no character development, preferring the villain herself to most of the characters. Other fans praise it as one of Walt's best works of art for its animation and music, with some seeing it as [[http://excellent-show-of-patience.tumblr.com/post/67003045977/sleeping-beauty-review very progressive for its day]], for it's female-driven narrative, diverse female characters, a princess who doesn't want to be a princess, and an open-minded prince who dismisses arranged marriages in favor of love.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: The film addresses an issue in the original fairy tale--- specifically, why, if the final fairy could enchant the princess to be awoken by TrueLovesKiss, she couldn't just go ahead and remove the curse entirely. The Three Good Fairies tell Stefan that they can't revoke gifts from other members of their kind, and there's also the implication that Maleficent is too powerful for them to remove the curse.

They have to redirect it into an enchanted, almost deathlike sleep.

* [[HesJustHiding She's Just Hiding]]: Many fans believe that Maleficent is still alive, mainly because [[NoBodyLeftBehind she apparently left no corpse]]. In the AlternateUniverse ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' canon they use this to reintroduce Maleficent, as thinking about her when her cloak is nearby resurrects her.

In the AlternateUniverse ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' canon they use this to reintroduce Maleficent, as thinking about her when her cloak is nearby resurrects her. In fact, during the recreation of the movie's climax in the prequel ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', Maleficent actually ''SURVIVES'' being stabbed by Phillip, albeit weakly limping away while clutching her chest back in fairy form, though only [[ActionGirl Aqua]] knows of her survival.
