YMMV: Disney Fairies
  • Designated Villain: Almost always Vidia, though less so in The Great Fairy Rescue, and Ginger in Dulcie's Taste of Magic.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Vidia.
  • Fan Nickname: For those familiar with Kingdom Hearts, guess who's called the "Roxas Fairy"?
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: It would appear that Terrence was supposed to be Tink's love interest, but a significant portion of the fandom thought he was a pretty boy caricature, and thought that Tink/Bobble was much more appealing.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: It's not the first time a geeky Rob Paulsen character shows interest in a Mae Whitman character... Just ask Donatello.
    • Tinkerbell having a distant sister who wears all blue, has a pale hair colour, and ice-based powers. Sound familiar?
  • Interspecies Romance: Teased between Zarina and James, a young Captain Hook. This serves a narrative purpose, as either a Mythology Gag or a Call Forward to the titular character's relationship.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: Everyone has a particular fairy that they want to show up in each book.
    • A lot of people watched The Pirate Fairy mainly because it featured Tom Hiddleston as James Hook .
  • Les Yay:
    • Silvermist, the water-talent fairy seems pretty into Tinker Bell. Or at least more affectionate than is "proper" for two platonic fairies! She greets Tink by stroking her nose and saying, "Easy...Silvermist's got ya."
    • If we're going to get into Les Yay for this fandom, that's hardly the most prominent example... the high ratio of female characters does increase the possibilities.
    • Incest Yay Shipping: Tinkerbell and Periwinkle, if these imagemanipulations are anything to go by.
      • Of course it doesn't help that the twos relationship is played as and compared to Star-Crossed Lovers.
  • Moral Event Horizon: In Pixie Hollow Games, Rumble crosses this when he shoots Rosetta and Chloe's racecar with a lightning bolt. Certainly, it's a horizon crossing in the eyes of his partner, who reacts by throwing the race.
  • Nightmare Fuel: In Great Fairy Rescue, Vidia and Tink's reactions to the butterflies that were on display in the human's household. Considering the fact that in the films, they've shown that the insects are all personified and the live butterfly in the jar that Elizabeth's father caught has cartoonish eyes, its mildly shocking to see them dead and on display.
  • Older Than They Think: The word "fairy" was used in JM Barrie's original Peter Pan. The word "pixie" was used in Disney's film for no apparent reason. So please don't whine because they use the word "fairy" in this adaptation.
  • Real Women Don't Wear Dresses: Explored in Pixie Hollow Games. The Garden Fairies have a bad losing streak in the Games, and have a reputation for being Girly Girls.
  • Relationship Sue: Some argue that Terrence is this.
  • Sailor Earth: Natch.
  • Squick:
    • Some people find the idea of mouse milk and cheese disgusting.
    • The weird Ship Tease that came up between Captain Zerina, a fairy, and her first mate, who is a human adult male. He came across as lovingly admirable of her abilities, even wistful of her, and he was the only one who understood anything she said. Zerina was clearly happiest with him and was the most fond of him. Then he stabs her in the back and you learn for certain that he's Captain Hook.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes:
    • "Flitteriffic!" But other than that, far less than you'd expect.
    • Worse than that, Vidia of all people is resorted to using these puns! (though only in one short, where she was having a nightmare)
