Friend to All Living Things/All-Loving Hero: Snow White. As a child, Snow White nursed a baby magpie back to health from a broken wing; when she escapes, magpies guide her through the sewers and to a White Stallion.
Girl in the Tower: Once Ravenna usurps the kingdom, she locks Snow White away in a prison for several years instead of killing her immediately.
Informed Attractiveness: Her beauty is constantly commented upon, although much of it is allegedly in regards to her "inner beauty".
Informed Attribute: Snow White is supposed to be so loving, compassionate and full of life that people fall in love with her only by looking at her. However, she never displays a greater amount of emotion or caring than several other characters of the film - and indeed, often shows less.
Instant Expert: Snow White knows how to ride a horse and fight with sword and shield, despite never having had an opportunity to develop those skills, what with being locked in a tower for years.
Jeanne d'Archétype: Snow White is given the Joan of Arc treatment in many ways. She acts as a symbol of resistance to a foreign usurper, fights in plate armour, and is considered something of a living saint.
Betty and Veronica: Though the Love Triangle is only hinted at, it's clear that devoted childhood friend William is the Betty while initially reluctantly helpful, alcoholic older man Eric is the Veronica to Snow White.
Adaptational Sympathy: In the original fairytale, the evil queen doesn't get much motive for trying to kill her stepdaughter and consume her organs beyond the fact she's a cruel, jealous tyrant who can't stand anyone being prettier than her. In this film, Ravenna is given a backstory in which she was taken away from her mother by a cruel king and forced to become his mistress; she also indicates she and her brother lived in poverty at some point "begging for scraps". Ravenna spent much of her life being used and abused by men, with her mother casting a spell upon her to give her everlasting youth and beauty as it was "the only thing that could save [her]", although she must still drain other people's lifeforce to maintain this eventually. The reason she wants to consume Snow White's heart is less from jealousy and more from the fact she would be eternally youthful and never have her power threatened again. Deep down Ravenna believes that without her beauty she is nothing, having apparently never grasped the concept of inner beauty.
Big Bad: In Snow White and the Huntsman. She needs the titular female protagonist dead so she can become immortal.
Black Widow: She married the King and usurped his throne after killing him.
Dark Action Girl: She kicks Snow White's ass for the most part in the movie's climax. She's just as formidable against the Huntsman's group in the sequel, though when Freya turns on her, the odds become a bit more even.
Ravenna: I was ruined by a king like you once. I replaced his queen, an old woman. And in time, I too would have been replaced. Men use women. They ruin us. And when they are finished with us, they toss us to the dogs like scraps.
Even Evil Has Loved Ones: For all her evilness, she does seem to care about her brother Finn, and breaks down in tears at his death. She loves her mother and her sister Freya too (not that it stops her from betraying the latter).
Faux Affably Evil: Ravenna is polite and courteous towards Snow White when they first meet. It doesn't last long.
Freudian Excuse: Her mother was murdered when she was just a child and she and her siblings were taken captive by an evil king, who is implied to have raped her. She and siblings also grew up in poverty. As a result, she hates men and believes that being beautiful and cruel is the only way to protect herself, and that the world deserves to be treated like crap.
Large Ham: Easily one of the hammiest characters in the films.
Magic Knight: Not only is she a powerful sorceress, she also has great skill in physical combat.
Ms. Fanservice: Ravenna has her breasts emphasized early on in the film in her wedding scene, and a couple of her dresses emphasize her back.
Paper Tiger: Her powers both magical and physical make her near impossible to combat, so much so that within their Curbstomp Battle, when Snow White finally manages to stab her, she cowers from her in a panic, unable to comprehend how she could have mortally wounded her.
Undignified Death: Gets impaled against the splintered end of a tree trunk in the midst of taunting the Huntsman about murdering his wife, and spends his final moments meekly pleading for his sister to heal him.
Villain Ball: Most of Finn's failure rate (and a lot of Ravenna's downfall) is owed to his reckless sadism and inability to resist stopping to mock his prey. Ultimately doing this gets him killed by the Huntsman.
Fisher King: After becoming the Snow Queen, she used her magic to convert the lands of the North into a frozen wasteland. After her death, the land is restored to its original state.
God Save Us from the Queen!: She is more sympathetic than her sister mind you, but she used her powers to keep her domain in perpetual winter and had young children captured to be trained as her warriors.
