YMMV: Disney Fairies

  • Designated Villain: Almost always Vidia, though less so in The Great Fairy Rescue (later stories turn her into a more grouchy protagonist than the villain), and Ginger in Dulcie's Taste of Magic.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • Vidia
    • Fawn
  • Evil Is Sexy: James in The Pirate Fairy, it helps that who his voice actor is.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • For those familiar with Kingdom Hearts, guess who's called the "Roxas Fairy"?
    • Who doesn't want to call young James as Pirate Loki?
  • 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 (he's simply nice to the point of blandness, with his only real quirk being that he's a Neat Freak), and thought that Tink/Bobble was much more appealing.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: It's not the only time a geeky Rob Paulsen character shows interest in a Mae Whitman character... Just ask Donatello.
    • Tinker Bell 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. Vidia & Tinker Bell can easily be turned into a Belligerent Sexual Tension situation, especially with Vidia's constant use of "sweetie" and "dear".
      • After her Heel-Face Turn Vidia gets really touchy feely with Tink, is always the first to console her and tends to stand closest to her. She comes across as having a bit of a crush on Tink.
      • Come The Pirate Fairy, Vidia gets hit with the Tinker Talent pixie dust. This doesn't go well at first, but when she knocks out one of the pirates, she starts to really embrace her switched talent. Tink is also shown to be impressed. Plus the fact they appear to have more interaction here then any other movie, aside from Great Fairy Rescue. Now if only Tink was turned into a fast-flying fairy one of these days...
    • Incest Yay Shipping: Tinkerbell and Periwinkle. Of course it helps that their relationship is played as and compared to Star-Crossed Lovers.
  • Misaimed Marketing: There's a line of dolls with some of the characters in beachwear visiting a tropical island. This line includes Periwinkle, a winter fairy who could wilt to death in heat.
  • Moral Event Horizon: In Pixie Hollow Games, Rumble crosses this when he shoots Rosetta and Chloe's race car 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.
    • The appearance of big (well, for fairies, anyway) rat on the pirate ship from The Pirate Fairy may causes some audiences freaked out. Especially so if you compare the rat with Cheese, the cute mice in Pixie Hollow.
  • 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.
  • Squick:
    • Some people find the idea of mouse milk and cheese disgusting.
    • The weird Ship Tease that came up between Captain Zarina, an ageless 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. Zarina 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)
