** Many commenters thought Prince Orland from "Maid Maleen" was a DirtyCoward who couldn't be bothered to attempt to rescue his beloved, even after her father's kingdom had fallen.
*** Others think his actions have logic-Maleen was imprisioned in tower by her father, and at very best, he would be going alone against horde of knights. At worst, he would cause war. And then say he possibly thought Maleen died in war.
** Roland from ''Sweetheart Roland'' gets similar criticism, for not being active and sending Dulcia alone to get wand, then forgetting about her and breaking Ivy's heart. Others like how it makes Dulcea much more active, fact that when she said '' we must go'' he immediately accepted, instead of asking her why she is pulling him into it, that he helped Dulcea, as well as point out fact that he has been under spell to forget Dulcea.
** Also, the Sausage lives meme....the poor little sausage from "The Bird, the Mouse, and the Sausage" was often used as a mascot (especially for donations), leading fans to conspire that he somehow survived the story. It helps that his death was never shown directly.
** Quite a few commenters admit to feeling sorry for the stepsister at the end of "Brother and Sister".
** A few also thought the false bride from "Maid Maleen" [[OffWithHisHead met too harsh an end.]]
* ShipToShipCombat: A humorous example, as the comments on [[http://www.erstwhiletales.com/the-worn-out-dancing-shoes-30/#.WSHB2_QrLre this page]] of ''Literature/TheTwelveDancingPrincesses'' playfully debate whether the protagonist should/will wind up with [[BigBad the oldest sister]] or [[TokenGoodTeammate the youngest]]; different adaptations go with different choices. (For the record, he picks [[spoiler:the oldest]].)
