* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The Huntsman. A cold, ruthless sociopath who enjoys [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame hunting people?]] Or a once good man, driven [[MaddenIntoMisanthropy insane with guilt]] for unintentionally causing the death of his son, which turned him into TheFatalist as a means of coping? Or both?

* TastesLikeDiabetes: Largely avoided, which is an exceptional feat for a 10-hour miniseries about fairy tales. But in certain places, the sappiness factor was cranked UpToEleven. See also: Hearts and butterflies swarming through the air in Kissing Town under a ''pink, heart-shaped moon''. Insulin, STAT. Add in the literal LoveIsInTheAir, most exemplified by the massive pink heart which appears over Wolf and Virginia's head as they share their first kiss, and the little Cupid girl skipping through the streets dispensing fortunes, and... yeah. Then there's the singing ring... Sort of PlayedForLaughs, mind.

** JerkassWoobie: Prince. Sure, he starts out a RoyalBrat, but being turned into a dog and having your entire life stolen from you is pretty terrible. Not to mention getting turned into gold at one point...

He went from running his own business, which was his dream job, to being a put-a-upon janitor, while at the same time having to deal with his wife's worsening mental condition. All this culminated in [[spoiler: Christine losing it and trying to drown Virginia as a child then running away and, as far as he knew, simply disappearing.]] Is it any wonder he begins the miniseries as a drunken jerkass?

** Ok, Wolf, you've won a ton of money gambling. Which do you think will Virginia over more: a expensive, yet pointless meal and marriage proposal or the goddamn mirror she's been hunting for since she arrived in the the Nine Kingdoms?

* BaseBreaker: Tony and Wolf. Both are either TheScrappy or an EnsembleDarkhorse depending on who you ask.

** Tony for some. He has many hilarious lines and undergoes some pretty good CharacterDevelopment by the end of the story.

* TheScrappy: Tony is this, big time.

* TheScrappy: Tony is this, big time. ** Because of his many WhatAnIdiot and {{Jerkass}} qualities, Wolf can end up as this for some viewers.

* {{Padding}}: Almost all of part 4 could have been removed with no real loss to the overall story.

** The miniseries as a whole has quite a bit of darkness, which a parent might not expect, unless they were familiar with the original Grimm's fairy tales.

Sure, she comes off a little cold, but once you learn exactly [[ParentalAbandonment why she]] [[DarkAndTroubledPast turned out]] [[MissingMom that way]], it's pretty much impossible not to feel bad for her. ** JerkassWoobie: Prince.

unfortunate implications need citations
* UnfortunateImplications: The gypsies are all of the unfortunate stereotypes associated with such folk mixed together. Some people consider the term itself a slur, although this is not universal. ** There are also a few in regards to the FantasticRacism against wolves, particularly when Wolf's trial coupled with the shepherdesses' earlier AllGirlsWantBadBoys[=/=]ReallyGetsAround reaction to him makes some uncomfortable WhereDaWhiteWomenAt parallels. Not to mention one of Wolf's defenses (lampshaded rather nastily by the Judge), that Sally Peep was "asking for it, gagging for it, begging for it", rather makes him sound like an accused rapist indulging in victim blaming. With Wolf being one of the ([[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor presumed]]) good guys so that the viewer is inclined to take his side, this is even more uncomfortable--particularly since at that point it wasn't clear yet whether he was innocent of her murder, which ''somewhat'' mitigates it after the fact. ** The fact that Tony was clearly trying to get into his boss's brainwashed wife's pants has not gone over well.
