* AngstWhatAngst: Rapunzel is emotionally abused for 18 years, and the consequences seem to be over in a few days. At the end of the film, she has [[spoiler: realized that her life is a lie, found out that her maternal figure was exploiting her and possibly never loved her at all, and witnessed the {{Family Unfriendly Death}}s of two people close to her (though one of them at least got better).]] None of this trauma is even mentioned in the epilogue. In an [[WhatCouldHaveBeen earlier version of the script]] this was more averted as Rapunzel clearly had fears about the outside world however eventually she was reworked into a PluckyGirl. [[WesternAnimation/TangledTheSeries The TV show]] amends this a little by showing Rapunzel, while still a generally positive person, does have occasional nightmares about Mother Gothel, and when [[Recap/TangledTheSeriesS1E12PascalsStory one episode]] finds her having to return to the tower she lived in with Gothel for 18 years, she is quite shaken.

** The prerelease to this movie was notoriously full of Disney fans arguing due to [[ItChangedNowItSucks developmental changes]]. Bastion being replaced with Flynn to this day is controversial, as Bastion is often seen being more Disney-esque while Flynn is more Dreamworks-esque as well as many people just thinking Bastion was more attractive. Changing the name from "Rapunzel" to "Tangled" is still a huge FandomBerserkButton for people, especially those who don't approve of Disney's post-90s material, and is seen as a FranchiseOriginalSin to many while others prefer the finalized name.

** Fanfic writers have started a trend where Rapunzel calls [[spoiler:Eugene]] by his former assumed name of Flynn Rider affectionately, instead of using his real name, in fics.

** Elsa and Anna from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' being Rapunzel's younger cousins is popular with both fandoms. Fans differ on whether Anna's and Elsa's father or their mother is related to Rapunzel's mother, though most lean on their mother. There's further support for this in the fact that as revealed in the Tangled series, Rapunzel's mother's name is Ari''anna''.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Flynn Rider has a big dose of ProtagonistCentredMorality - early on in the film he betrays his two partners, leaving them to get captured by the authorities. While they do get out, it's a pretty bad move on Flynn's part, as we see that the death penalty does exist in this world, so he could well have been leaving them for dead. The Stabbington Brothers [[spoiler: later turn him over to the authorities for capture, but you could easily see this as them getting revenge on him, rather than them just trying to get him killed for a big score]]. The movie never really calls him out for this, and we're supposed to like Flynn (in the early scenes at least) just because he's funny and charming.
** In his defense, though, he ''did'' realise what kind of an ass he was, and tried to make amends with them by apologizing and giving them the crown.

** For Latin America, when Flynn refuses to sing (and then, sings but it's a little bit out of tune), it gets funnier since his VA on spanish is the famous singer Chayanne. And if the viewers is old enough, the last time that Chayanne worked for a Disney movie before Tangled, he [[AtlantisTheLostEmpire also sang about chasing your dreams]].

** It's worth pointing out that [[WesternAnimation/TangledTheSeries the TV show]] ''does'' actually establish that Rapunzel has occasional nightmares about Mother Gothel, though Rapunzel is such a happy-go-lucky person that she doesn't seem to let them bother her too badly.

** "Surrounded by enormous piles of moneeeeeyyyy!"
** ''The Smoulder''

** The "I Have A Dream" song. Rapunzel and the thugs are all singing about self-realization, whereas Flynn's is just to be "Surrounded by enormous piles of moneeeeeyyyy!"

* CounterpartComparison: An unintentional case, but even though there was a Rapunzel in ''Series/OnceUponATime,'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPUGZFcOxBo the fanbase finds a more direct correlation with Emma and Hook.]] Emma being a blonde, the lost princess angle, the magic, [[DepartmentOfChildDisservices Emma's childhood spent being shuffled from one abusive foster home to the next]], and Hook being a TallDarkAndSnarky type who started as a villain, ended up making a HeelFaceTurn, and hooked up with the princess.

** Gothel apologists are claiming all the problems in the movie were the fault of the king and queen for destroying the flower in the first place, even though they didn't know that it could be used without consuming it, and Gothel, who they didn't know existed because she herself never came forward, was the only one who could have told them how.


Added DiffLines:

** Relatedly, many would argue that, "selfish" or not, the King and Queen caused the entire movie's problems by destroying the flower rather than using it as intended by singing the healing song. However, it's entirely possible that the King and Queen did not ''know'' the Flower could be used that way, and some would even argue that they may not have known Gothel even ''existed''.

* WinBackTheCrowd: ''Tangled'' finished the job that Disney started with ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' for being relevant in the animation industry once again, outside of Creator/{{Pixar}}'s shadow. Both critics and audiences loved it, and it became Disney's second highest grossing film ever.
