Loving a Shadow: Every time she talks to Cinderella, she sighs after the handsome Prince... but this is mostly envy for the glamorous life she associates with Princes; she later realizes her husband has many princely qualities of his own.
Your Cheating Heart: Shows minor signs of this throughout the show, longing for every prince she sees though already married. After she does commit adultery with Cinderella's prince, she spends her last song basically trying to justify her actions to herself.
Karma Houdini: In a way, much of the second act is Jack's fault. Even though just about everyone is guilty in some way, he repeatedly stole from the house of the Giantess and her husband who gave him shelter and food. The last time he went back was simply because someone he had probably never met before didn't believe that he had done it. The only real punishment for him was the fact his mother died during the events of the second act.
Anti-Villain: She cursed the Baker's family, she was overprotective of her daughter, she wanted to sacrifice Jack to make the Giantess go away, AND she started throwing beans during The Last Midnight to summon more giants, but she was NOT the villain of the play.
Only Sane Woman: The Witch has elements of this in Act Two, when she shows herself to be the only person who understands the gravity of the situation, and the unpleasant things that may need to be done to solve it.
Could Have Avoided This Plot: When the characters try to offer the Narrator to the Giantess as a sacrifice, the Narrator reminds them that the story would be lost if he was obliterated. Regardless of this, however, the Witch gives the Narrator to the Giantess anyway, and as soon as the Giantess sees that the Narrator isn't Jack, the Narrator is dropped spoiler:from the Giantess' hand and killed. Possibly concerned of the subsequent events of the story without the Narrator, the Baker's Wife points out: "We might have thought of something else."
Actually, it's the Witch that does it right after the other characters realize how lost they would be without him. See above for details.
The Runaway: Several new productions turn the narrator into a young boy instead of a grown man with the addition of a new Book Ends story where he runs away to live in the woods after a fight with his father. Said father is revealed to be played by the same actor as The Baker and is the one who told the boy the story in the first place.
What's the good in being kind if everyone is blind, and you're always left behind?
Prince Charmless: After he engaged himself with the Baker's Wife, he immediately told her that it was just a moment in the woods, meaning it's something that was never to happen again. His womanizing ways result in the Baker's Wife staying in the area where she dies and Cinderella leaving him because of his brief affair.
Royals Who Actually Try To Do Something: He never actually finds the Giant, but besides Cinderella herself, he's the only member of the royal family to actually get off his ass and go looking for her.
Aaaaaagonyyyyy! Far more painful than yours!
The Casanova: It's bad that he was taking interest in another woman, but it's partially justified considering his wife was killed and suffering from hysteria prior to her death, he most likely had to have someone help him raise his children.
Hypocrite: He defends his killing of Jack's mother as being necessary for the greater good, but when witch suggests that it's in his line of duty to sacrifice his life, he immediately declares that he's not dying for anyone.
