Added DiffLines:

* AristocratsAreEvil: Not all of them, but there are definitely some around. Examples include Prince Raj arbitrarily deciding to force Shirayuki to be his concubine just because he likes her hair (and trying to poison her to cover up the shame after she refused and fled the country to get away from him) and a viscount in Clarines who tried to sabotage a competition that could have gained his lands a valuable resource if it succeeded on the grounds that he would face embarrassment over the fact that Zen and Shirayuki had discovered the true value of the birds in his territory while he had been hunting them to extinction for their feathers.

Added DiffLines:

* EnemyMine: Zen's group teams up with Raji and the Mountain Lion's, groups who probably otherwise would have been at each other's throat were it not for the common goal of rescuing Shirayuki and Kazuki.


* BigBrotherInstinct: When Lido rebels came after Zen in chapter sixteen, Izana started cutting them down without reservation.

Added DiffLines:

* DopeSlap: During episode 12, an actress is lamenting that having broken her foot, she'll never meet the prince. Obi mutters to Zen that this is his chance. Zen applies this trope in response.


** Lord Marquis points out that Shirayuki had no social standing prior to her gaining a role as the Court Pharmacist and had no business in the castle, as it could be damaging to Zen's reputation or she could take advantage of his generosity. He's technically right, she ''isn't'' supposed to be in the castle without identification, and others would question their relationship as to whether she used her friendship to gain easy access to him by being a SocialClimber.
** When they first meet, Prince Izana questions whether Zen only cares about Shirayuki because of her red hair. He later points out to his brother its obvious he likes her and if he only cares about her for her appearance others will look at her coldly and judge her, made more evident when rumors about him considering her as his fiancee get around.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: There have been people who were skeptical of Shirayuki, and while it's acknowledged they make sense, Shirayuki manages to prove them wrong:

Added DiffLines:

* LongingLook: Obi occasionally will stare almost dazed at Shirayuki, whom he has admitted to love but since he supports her relationship with Zen he's never told her. He's also been caught looking at Zen with exactly the same expression, though he's refused to clarify his feelings for his boss beyond liking him.

Once upon a time, there was a girl with red hair. This hair color is so rare that it reaches the ears of the country's prince, and he takes her as his concubine. And so they lived HappilyEverAfter...

Just kidding.

A {{shoujo}} manga loosely based on the tale of Literature/SnowWhite and serialized in [=LaLaDX=], ''Snow White With the Red Hair'' (Japanese: ''Akagami no Shirayukihime'') follows Shirayuki, a young woman born with unique apple-red hair making a living as an herbalist. After catching word about her hair, the crown prince of her country, Prince Raji, gave orders for her to become his concubine. Finding this ridiculous, she tried to refuse, but her refusal was considered irrelevant. With nowhere else to go, Shirayuki cut her hair and fled to the neighboring country of Clarines. While travelling through the forest by the highway, she met a kind young man, Zen, and his two companions, Mitsuhide and Kiki. However, Raji soon tracked her down and sent a basket of apples which Zen ate before Shirayuki and quickly realized that they were poisoned. In order to obtain the antidote, Shirayuki met with Raji, but before she could accept his offer, Zen interrupted and used his status as the Second Prince of Clarines to stop Raji from abusing his own status. Noticing that Zen was still suffering from the effects of the poison, Shirayuki then made Raji give Zen the antidote. These events cause Zen, as well as Kiki and Mitsuhide (who are actually his aides), to befriend Shirayuki and prompt Zen to invite her to both Clarines and the palace. Not being one to ride on the coat-tails of others, Shirayuki decided to entre the palace using her own merit by attaining a position as a Court Pharmacist Apprentice.

However, being friends with a prince, regardless of his order in succession, is not at all simple, especially when you have no rank of your own. Because of this, as Zen and Shirayuki grow closer, the two and their friends (especially, Mitsuhide, Kiki, and Obi) are tied up in many conflicts relating to both their relationship and to the simple fact of being there. With the added involvement of Zen's older brother, Crown Prince Izana, various pharmacists and nobles, and others, the story soon branches out to trace the route of Shirayuki and Zen's relationship and activities.

* DamselOutOfDistress: [[ActionGirl Shirayuki usually tries to get out of being in distress on her own]] with varying levels of success. Her first attempt with Raji was to flee the country, and the second was to use improvised paralyzing gas to put Mihaya down long enough to get out of the manor. They tracked her down afterwards. Her attempt to escape during the Tanbarun arc also lacked success, but the same went for her companion. Otherwise, she normally gets herself out of trouble on her own, and whenever she can't, she becomes a DefiantCaptive.

* NeverASelfMadeWoman: The story tries really hard to avoid this trope and stresses at every opportunity that Shirayuki didn't reach her position in Clarines' court because of Zen's goodwill, but of her own hard work and diligence, which is all true. However, the same thing cannot be said for her time in Tanbarun. In that arc, she is allowed to lodge for an entire week in the royal palace, triggers a royal expedition against local pirates and receives a prestigious honorary title all because Raji considers her his friend. It's not particularly problematic, since the focus is on the Clarines side of things and Tanbarun is rarely important outside of that arc. Also, her becoming close to Raji in the first place is due to her own efforts, further negating the effect of her connections in Tanbarun.
