''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7625566/1/The-Tangled-Princess-Bride The Tangled Princess Bride]]'' is a Crossover fanfic by Wolfram-and-Hart-Sauron crossing ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' with ''Film/ThePrincessBride'' in a fun story full of cameos, in-jokes and the same adventure/romance that we loved of the original tales.

The framing device is The King of Corona is reading to his grandchildren from a book called [[TheEighties "The Nineteen 80's"]], with classic tales such as ''Film/{{Gremlins}}'', ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH'' and more. The one he chooses is ''The Princess Bride'', a story that "has sword fights, pirates, giants, barbarians, intrigue, conspiracy, torture, monsters, true love, magic, revenge, miracles and death."

The story proper is about Rapunzel, daughter of Lady Gothel who was born with magic blonde hair, and her true love Eugene, a stable boy. When they realize their feelings, fate conspires against them, as Eugene becomes lost at sea when going to seek his fortune to earn Rapunzel's hand.

Years later, Rapunzel becomes engaged to Prince Walter (the guard captain from ''Disney/{{Tangled}}''), son of [[{{Film/Enchanted}} King Edward and Queen Nancy of Andalasia]]. However, not long after the engagement, she is kidnapped while out riding her horse Maximus. The kidnappers were [[Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove Yzma]] ([[{{Chessmaster}} the mastermind]]), Hook Hand Garret ([[MasterSwordsman the world's greatest fencer]], [[YouKilledMyFather traveling to avenge his parents]]), Vladimir ([[GentleGiant the above-mentioned giant]]), and Ulf the mime. They are followed and hampered by a mysterious man in black who seems determined to stop them at all costs. The following adventures are madcap, iconic, and brilliant.

!!''The Tangled Princess Bride'' provides examples of:

* AffectionateParody: Of ''The Princess Bride'', with added Disney whimsy and fun.
* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: The [[{{Disney/Dumbo}} Pachyderms Of Unusual Hue (P.O.U.H)]] in the Fire Swamp.
* AprilFoolsPlot: At the end of Chapter 14, The King drops the book and loses his place. When he starts reading again, he's in a totally different story, ''[[Franchise/DieHard Tangled Die Hard]]''. Quickly realizing his mistake, he closes the book and flips back to the right story. The kids beg for that to be the next story read to them, but Grandpa refuses as to avoid the wrath of the kids' Mom and Grandma.
* ArrangedMarriage: Rapunzel and Walter
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: [[spoiler: At the climax, Gothel is declared under arrest for assault, kidnapping, attempted murder, high treason, and tampering with the mail.]]
* BattleOfWits: Between Yzma and the Man in Black.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: In universe example: When the kids interrupt the "I See The Light" scene, Rapunzel and Flynn yell at them for ruining the moment, and leaving them, Pascal and their grandfather stunned that a book yelled at them.
* TheCameo: At least one in almost every chapter. Most notably Edward and Nancy from ''{{Film/Enchanted}}'', Yzma from ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'', and Dr. Facilier and Mama Odie from ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog''.

* ImagineSpot: Zach has one where he describes his own ending to the story, involving an over the top battle with things exploding for no reason.
* InterestingSituationDuel: Flynn fights Hook Hand in [[{{WesternAnimation/Gargoyles}} Wyvern Castle]]. Later, he fights Maximus at the dam with a frying pan, and ''then'', Yzma [[spoiler:as a little kitten]] fights Maximus with a sword.
-->'''Flynn''': And ''that's'' the strangest thing I've ever seen.
* OutGambitted: Yes, go against an evil alchemist with magic potions if [[spoiler:you knew they would switch the apples, think you were poisoned and drink from the wine bottle you just put essence of kitten in.]]
* RomanticFalseLead: Rosie thinks this of Eugene after the Man In Black [[spoiler:defeats Hook Hand]]. According to the author, this was the exact reaction of their friend's little sister when she first saw the original movie.
* ShoutOut: Man in Black's battle with Ulf is a blatant one for Indy shooting the swordsmen in ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''.
** Yzma mentions Vladimir used to work playing a [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 caveman named Eegah]]. Vladimir's voice actor, Richard Kiel, actually ''did'' play Eegah.
** Vladimir calls his ceramic unicorns [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Rarity and Twilight Sparkle.]]

** During the final battle, [[spoiler: Mary Poppins confirms the fan theory that she is a Time Lady (and mentions she's been other things, like the [[Film/ThePrincessDiaries Queen of Genovia]]).]]
** Just before the final battle, Rapunzel says [[Film/TheAvengers2012 "Let's do a headcount, shall we?"]] before listing off her and Eugene's allies.
* TheStoryteller: The King serves this role reading to his grandkids.
* TrueLovesKiss: Inverted. [[spoiler: The love spell on Prince Walter is broken because the kiss he and Rapunzel share is completely devoid of True Love.]]
