* FridgeBrilliance: A fantasy series that features a big war in its seventh installment. [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Sound familiar?]]
* FunnyMoments: The gingerbread man in book 4 accusing Sabrina of being a "bakist".
* JerkassWoobie: [[spoiler: Being trapped in a mirror for hundreds of years and having to deal with cruel owners made Mirror bitter and led him to become the Master.]]
* NightmareFuel:
** This happens a ''lot'' to Sabrina.
** For the readers, we have the illustration of Little Red Riding Hood at the end of the second book. Sure, the description of the sweet Little Red Riding Hood with the [[SlasherSmile smile of a serial killer]] is disturbing in its own right, but the ''[[NightmareFace picture]]''... it fills in the little gaps in the imagination that were best left blank.
*** [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/sistersgrimm/images/f/f3/The_Mad_Child.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20140217182933 Here's the picture]], aptly given the file name "The_Mad_Child.jpg". Don't look at it if you're planning on getting good sleep.
** Also, the thought of the more unpleasant fairy tale characters being both alive and at large, and the idea that the terrible things some of them did actually happened... It becomes FridgeHorror of finest caliber.
** At one point, the flesh literally melts off the bones of one character.
** [[spoiler:Briar]]'s death. Holy hell. FamilyUnfriendlyDeath is a tad of an understatement. Essentially, she gets swatted by a dragon and ''cracks her skull'' against a tree.
** [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/sistersgrimm/images/7/71/3.11.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20141007061254 Everything about this picture]], depicting Little Red Riding Hood on the Jabberwocky. Not only is Red still sporting her SlasherSmile, but the Jabberwocky is equally terrifying. Hell, the Jabberwocky's appearance on the cover rivals that of the anglerfish from ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' in terms of MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily.
* TearJerker: [[spoiler:Briar]]'s death in book 7. Not only was it an [[NightmareFuel extremely unpleasant]] [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath way to go]], but it becomes more saddening when we find out that [[spoiler:Jacob was planning to take her hand in marriage]].
* {{Wangst}}: Sabrina does try to run away a few times.
