** The Ubermensch archetype in general, with the bandit chief who sees himself as superior, as he follows his will and desires alone and bosses his men around, arguing that their are just "slaves" who need to be commanded. When he proposes Ulga to [[WeCanRuleTogether join him]] because he sees her [[NotSoDifferent as his like]], she briefly hesitates, before declining: this was her way of living for a long time, and she's starting [[CharacterDevelopment to see the fault in it]], even pointing out every flaw in the bandit's worldview.

* AnachronismStew: While ostensibly the middle ages, the history teacher has a modern cigar, the academy has oddly futuristic-seeming plumbing in the girls' showers, and apparently the kingdom is mostly-literate.

--> "Let me ask you something, ladies. While you fill your heads with thoughs of handsome princes, what do you supposed ''they'' think about? Never considered it? I'm amazed. The history and glory of their future kingdoms. That's what's on most princes' minds. History, Hunting, and Horseflesh pretty much sums it up. So when you meet your TrueLove, you may want to have something to chat about beyond sewing tapestries. Otherwise they may not stick around long enough to marry you."

* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Julifer in regards to horses. She thinks just because her unicorn is a purebred means it will be easy to control and that giving it treats even when it does not behave is perfectly fine. Ulga tried to impress the need for discipline onto her but Julfer insisted she knew best. Julifer only seemed to come around when she needed a mount for the show and Ulga let her borrow her pony, which while scruffy and small is perfectly obedient and able.

* BlueBlood: Julifer is very proud of hers, but the other princesses joke about how many men of proper birth are very unappealing. [[spoiler: It later turns out Julifer's family is actually descended from pig farmers, meaning as far as lineage goes, Ulga is actually more royal than she is. And Julifer is having an affair with a captain.]]

** The (slightly Übermensch-flavoured) ProudWarriorRaceGuy archetype : The frost giants and Ulga's people have been fighting each other for centuries, not even remembering (or caring about) what caused the feud in the first place. They are all very good at war, which makes up most of their culture, but it's slowly driving both to extinction, and neither know how to stop since they don't understand the concept of diplomacy.

** The classic fairy tale weddings and usual Princess and Prince archetypes. It's shown early how a Princess' grace, knowledge, poise, and talents all serve the same goal : securing a good wedding, which itself is usually little more than a political and economical arrangement.
