YMMV: The Bloody Chamber
- Moment Of Awesome: The mother's epic arrival to save her daughter from The Marquis, smashing down the gate and brandishing the service revolver of her late husband
- Magnificent Bastard: Puss in Boots is a heroic example of this trope.
- Nightmare Fuel: Naturally, given the stories involved. One notable instance is the female protagonist of "The Bloody Chamber" uncovering the eponymous room and its gruesome contents.
- Squick: The man raping the dead little girl in "The Snow Child", only for her corpse to revert to its original form of blood and snow
