He is considered the Beast in the Beauty and the Beast fairytale as well as the Crocodile in the Peter Pan story.


Rumplestiltskin is a popular character in the OUAT fandom.

The large and dysfunctional family tree of Henry Mills has been a large component in the fandom due to several big reveals in Season 2 (Baelfire as Henry's father, as such Rumpelstiltskin is Henry's grandfather) and Season 3 Rumpelstiltskin's father is revealed to be Peter Pan [1] [2].
