This video game provides examples of

  • Crapsaccharine World: Sure, there's magic and princes and balls and fairy godmothers...but peasants get cursed all the time and the cures for curses are sold by heavily-competing mafia-like corporations.
  • Fractured Fairy Tale: Oh, so much.
    • Goldilocks works with the three bears to run a rival shop called the Bearzinis
    • Another competitor is run by the Not So Charming Princes
    • The Fairy Godmother is more like a mob boss than a sweet savior, and make money off potions, not miracles
    • Many of the stories you can get involved in during the levels as well. Jack and Jill are scam artists, Rapunzel is being used to sell wigs, and Red Riding Hood's grandma is a werewolf!
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Even if you hook the head of the Not So Charming Princes up with one of Cinderella's stepsisters and he says he's closing his shop, the Princes' shop will remain open. One assumes he was not the only prince working there, but still...
  • Gray and Gray Morality: You're more than capable of being just as underhanded as your competitors, if not more so in some cases. While ostensibly the "good" faction, you can hire crooks to rob the opposition, hijackers to steal their ingredients, someone to sabotage their labs, and goons to scare away or even outright steal their customers.
  • The Mafia: A lot of the potion business is played this way. Rival shops are treated more like rival crime families you're in a turf war with.
  • Obviously Evil: The Godmother's second in command, Sneersworth. heavily lampshaded by the Godmother herself, which somehow does not stop her form trusting him until after his third sabotage incident.
  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: One goon you can hire puts ''more' curses on the peasants so they'll have to buy from you.
