The Supernatural

One motif that is often seen in fairy tales is the use of magic or the supernatural. Examples of this include talking animals such as in the story "The Strange Musician" and "Snow-White and Rose-Red". There are also other unnatural aspects included in the stories. An example of this is hair that is strong enough to be climbed by a full-grown human without breaking, as in "Rapunzel". Magical characters are also able to produce guns that hit their targets each time they are shot, such as in the story "The Jew Among Thorns". Characters in these fairy tales travel to places such as the moon, the sun, heaven, and hell, all of which are places that the common human cannot travel to with natural means. Often characters are also able to transform themselves into inanimate objects such as churches, chandeliers, or ponds.
