These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
The Wicked Stepmother in "The Three Ravens" becomes this when she drops babies down a well to frame their mother for killing them.
So when she was ensnaring the king by making him think she looked like his dead wife, putting creepy-crawlies in his children's toybox, turning his sons into ravens with the gift of cursed shirts, and poisoning him to death with a snake, she was only 99% monster?
Tear Jerker: All of the Downer Endings. The story of Daedelus in particular will rip out your soul. Although Hans the hedgehog and his wife end up happily, his mother dies of a broken heart when he leaves home near the beginning. Sob.
Unnecessary Makeover: YMMV, but Anja (from "The True Bride") looked better with straight blonde hair, than she does with the curly red mop she gets when she becomes a princess.
