YMMV: The Love of Three Oranges
- Values Dissonance: The depiction of the slave in most versions is... not exactly something that would go down well in the modern day. She's always portrayed as evil, usually as an idiot, many versions mention her mistress beating her as if it were no big deal, and most of the older versions spend a disturbing amount of time describing how disappointed everyone is by the mere fact she has black skin.
- The Woobie: The first two maidens. Ironically, Basile's variant implies that they are restored in the end.
