     Shared Tropes 

  • Animate Inanimate Object: Later games give players a sentient object that provides pieces of the Awful Truth behind the stories originally told and items needed to solve puzzles.
  • Darker and Edgier: The games are grimmer than their source materials.
  • Dead All Along: Most of the games have the titular fairytale character be dead for real.
  • Deal with the Devil: Plenty of these in the games, be it because of the supposed or actual antagonist.
    • In the first game, it turned out that the Ice Queen made deal with the Alchemist that if she helps him growing the blue roses and turns the land into eternal winter he'll bring back her parents.
    • In the second game, the Alchemist made a deal with Queen that she'll fetch the Flower of Life from the Gnome Maze for him in exchange for an apple that allows her to be the fairest for all eternity. When the Queen was defeated, he kidnapped Elizabeth and gave the same deal to the protagonist but for her sister's life instead.
    • In the third game, the Alchemist made a deal with Amaretta that if she aids him in resurrecting his beloved Morgana, he'll give her a love potion that bends Jarett's heart to her. He lied.
  • Downer Ending: The series itself is rather fond of this trope.
    • For the original Snow Queen Tale, Kai and Gerda managed to seal the Ice Queen and shattered the mirror that is the source of her power but because of their daughter's curiosity of wanting to meet said Queen they're all doomed.
    • For the original Snow White Tale, the queen succeeded in her goal and took Snow White's youth, froze her soul within her body until the protagonist released her.
    • For the original Rumpelstiltskin Tale, Mayor Tom's contract with Augustine was not optional, and he attempted to kill her to take back his magic spindle.
    • For the original Cinderella tale, the stepmother succeeded in getting her daughter to marry the prince with the help of the fairy godmother while Cinderella was imprisoned under false charges because of the crystal slippers.
  • Scenery Porn: Like other games of this type, each scene is made of highly detailed bitmaps.

     Living Legends: Ice Rose 
  • Adaptational Villainy: The Snow Queen in the Andersen fairy tale was a morally ambiguous character at best, her only crime being taking a boy afflicted by a mirror shard's evil away; the Ice Queen in the game is a much more antagonistic character against the main protagonist, even killing the people who sealed her in a mirror and an innocent girl who unknowingly messed things up.
  • Distressed Dude: Your fiancé Edward, needs to be rescued from the Ice Queen.
  • Endless Winter: The Ice Queen's plan. See Freudian Excuse for her true motives.

  • Ghost Town: Rosemount has long since been abandoned after the Ice Queen froze the kingdom in the middle of summer.
  • Harmless Freezing: Averted. Being frozen for a long period of time killed the victims.

  • It's All My Fault: Rose blames herself for releasing the Ice Queen because she wanted the ice roses on the grounds of curiosity.

  • Orphan's Ordeal: Angelique lost her parents to the plaque when she was only a child.
  • The Power of Love: What helped Gerda save Kai from the Ice Queen decades ago. The protagonist also uses this to save her fiancé from her now.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: It's implied that the Ice Queen used to be a sweet princess capable of love.

  • Artifact of Doom: The cursed comb given by the queen to Elizabeth early in the game is this: comb your hair with it and lose your consciousness immediately. Like the original tale, removing the comb will break the spell.
    • The corset ribbon is this as well: the queen used it to bind Snow White's soul, preventing her from ascending to the afterlife.
  • And I Must Scream: Those fall for the queen's deception suffers this fate: being frozen alive and unable to move on to the afterlife should they are full of unfulfilled wish. Near the end of the main game, Elizabeth suffers this but is saved thanks to the queen's defeat.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: As part of the deal with the Alchemist, the queen must allow him to grant one wish for each of those who forfeited their life. It's the only way to defeat the queen, by wishing for her to be the fairest one of all.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: The Gnomes were firm believers of this, so they placed a spell to prevent anyone except the fairest of all from be able to retrieve the Flower of Life from the maze. The protagonist even lampshades this in her note.
  • Evil Is Petty: A partly justified example: the Queen stole the Gnomes' oil can to prevent them from burning down her magic apple tree.
  • Fairest of Them All: The Queen's ultimate goal in the game is to become this by tricking the fairest of all at the time (Snow White, Three Ladies, Your mother, Elizabeth, and You) into eating a youth-draining magic apple that allows her to do this to you.

  • Magic Mirror: As in the original tale, the Queen uses the mirror to locate the fairest maiden in the land in her quest to become the fairest of all. The protagonist successfully destroys it at the behest of the spirit of her mother.
  • Missing Mom: One of the plots in the game is to find out what happened to your mother. She was the last victim of the queen who promised her with wealth should she accepts the deal and her daughters will live in comfort.
  • Mystical White Hair: The mysterious woman holding the magic apple on the screen. It's your mother after being frozen alive.
  • Our Dwarves Are All the Same: Averted. In this case, the dwarfs in this story are replaced by Gnomes, who resemble normal humans anyway.

  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Snow White.
  • Rule of Seven: The Queen's ultimate goal of becoming the fairest for all eternity requires her to drain youth from seven fairest maidens in the world.
  • Sadistic Choice: The queen offers one to Elizabeth to choose between her own life or her sister's that will eat the magic apple. Elizabeth chooses to save you.
  • World's Most Beautiful Woman: Snow White, then the three ladies,your mother, Elizabeth and you. It's also another plot point since only the fairest one of all can receive the Flower of Life from the Gnome Maze.
