Beauty and the Beast

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
"Stockholm syndrome girl falls for ugly guy. Except he isn't."
—John Atkinson, Wrong Hands, "abridged fairy tales"

This Twice-Told Tale has many versions, including:

Anime and Manga

  • Princess Mononoke, whose initial concept derives from the story. The final product is so vastly different from the story it's safe to say that the two share nothing in common.
  • Belle, a 2021 animated film by Studio Chizu.



Live-Action TV


  • Blake Belladonna from RWBY is inspired by Beauty; her psychopathic ex-partner/ex-lover Adam Taurus is inspired by the Beast.
