* Expy: Her design was inspired by Audrey Hepburn, and it shows.


* DramaQueen: Aurora slowly becomes distressed when the fairies tell her of her true identity, which ''is'' justified considering that her entire life has been revealed as a total lie. However, it is when she's told that this means she can never see the cute guy she met in the forest, the cute guy she met earlier that ''very same day'', that Aurora becomes overly dramatic about it and goes into her room to weep.
** Perhaps quite {{Justified}}, however, considering quickly developing romances aren't the strangest thing to happen in fairy tales. And more to the point, this poor girl has had no human contact outside her aunties for 16 years and is clearly starting to mature and chafe under their rules, beginning to long for romantic companionship, and once she has it, it is suddenly yanked out of her grasp. And ''on top of that'', she learns she must marry a stranger thanks to an arranged marriage she's been in since birth.

Added DiffLines:

* Expy: Her design was inspired by Audrey Hepburn, and it shows.


* DarkAndTroubledPast: Downplayed. She was cursed as a child to die on her 16th birthday and had to be put into hiding. Even so, she was lovingly raised by her "aunts".



* DramaQueen: Aurora slowly becomes distressed when the fairies tell her of her true identity, which ''is'' justfied considering that her entire life has been revealed as a total lie. However, it is when she's told that this means she can never see the cute guy she met in the forest, the cute guy she met earlier that ''very same day'', that Aurora becomes overly dramatic about it and goes into her room to weep.

Added DiffLines:

* GreenAndMean: Inverted with Fauna. Her main outfits are green but she's part of the friendly and heroic fairies.

Added DiffLines:

* BreakTheCutie: "Briar Rose" grows up in the woods with virtually no human contact because her "aunts" are terrified that [[BigBad Maleficent]] would find her. She doesn't seem to mind, as she has [[FriendToAllLivingThings woodland friends]] for company and her dreams as {{Escapism}}. The day she finally meets another human being, it's LoveAtFirstSight. They make arrangements to meet again and she eagerly rushes off to tell her aunts. When she returns home, she is given a series of life-shattering revelations: her name isn't really Briar Rose, but Aurora; she's actually the king's daughter; her "aunts" are actually fairies; they plan on returning her to the castle that night; she's been in an ArrangedMarriage since birth; and she will never see her girlhood home or the boy she met ever again. Aurora doesn't say another word for the rest of the film, only sobbing when the fairies lead her to the palace and conjure a tiara. From there, Maleficent almost doesn't even need to HypnotizeThePrincess, as the girl is so confused and miserable, she'll take any way out she can get.

* DangerousSixteenthBirthday: While the curse in Creator/{{Disney}}'s adaptation of ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' has a 16-year time period to be fulfilled instead of a certain day, the curse was fulfilled on Aurora's 16th birthday, just moments before its time was up.

* {{Expy}}: He greatly resembles the king from ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}''. Both kings also wish to marry off their sons partly because they want grandchildren.

* BigBad: Her angry whims are the reason Aurora must be hidden and the basis of the movie. In Disney crossover material (such as ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' and quite a few attractions in the Ride/DisneyThemeParks), she's often portrayed as the Big Bad for the Disney multiverse as a whole (the other major contender, [[Disney/{{Fantasia}} Chernabog]], usually falls into the GreaterScopeVillain position).

* FlatCharacter: She has a total of only ''18'' minutes of both screen time and lines of dialogue in the ''75'' minute film, meaning that there's not a lot in the way of depth here. She is even put to sleep for a third of the movie, until the very ending. Administrivia/TropesAreTools though, since [[DecoyProtagonist the role of "protagonist" never really belonged to Aurora anyway]].


* BadBoss: To her minions, save Diablo. A very notable instance of this is when she electrocutes them with lightning after she learns that they spent sixteen years searching for a baby, not even being aware that Aurora would age.

* MoralMyopia: Murdering a baby for not being invited to it's christening is pretty extreme, to say the least, but especially so when you go around calling yourself the "Mistress of All Evil", explicitly use [[BadPowersBadPeople black magic from Hell itself]], actively ''cultivate'' an [[CardCarryingVillain image of pure evilness]], and generally act like a total {{Jerkass}} to everyone [[PetTheDog but your loyal (and still evil) pet bird]] (who you even named [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Diablo]]).
