Similarities and Comparisons
- The two conflicting personalities could definitely lead to some very interesting interactions and tensions.

This is a popular trope in fiction pairing an immortal with a mortal (as an immortal vampire with a simple mortal human), the tragedy of their separation through the test of time a prefereabl tool for drama and tragedy.
- Both carry their iconic weapons with them.
- Jack's crock staff and Rapunzel's frying pan.
- Both are adventurous and not afraid to fight.
- Both have a connection with the moon.
- Before the release of the Tangled TV series, however, Rapunzel only had a conation with the sun; through the magical flower that saved her mother's life along with hers.

The crossover pairing is one of the popular het ships of the Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons fandom, where the two are members of the Big 4 along with Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon and Merida from Brave. It is often shipped alongside Mericcup. Jackunzel is a notable rival ship of Jelsa, and there have been ship wars between the two.
Some scenarios involve Jack meeting Rapunzel while the latter is a little child, and having a relationship similar to that of a child and an imaginary friend. As Rapunzel gets older, the two start to develop more romantic feelings for each other. The relationship is often portrayed as tragic since Rapunzel ages while Jack stays the same age. Villains such as Pitch Black and Mother Gothel can use this as an advantage to tear the two apart.
Due to the modern setting in Rise of the Guardians compared to Tangled, Rapunzel is sometimes portrayed with the more modern looking clothes that her Netizen version wears in Ralph Breaks the Internet; since both Jack Frost and Netizen Rapunzel wear hoodies. Netizen Rapunzel could also hang out with a fanon Netizen version of Jack from a DreamWorks website.
As a main Big 4 pairing, it is common used in many AU scenarios. In Frozen Tangled Guardians, Jack and Rapunzel are the parents of Elsa and Anna from Frozen. In most AUs, whether or not the pairing is included depends on the fan's choice. An example of an AU where the two can be paired together is the Cinderella AU with Rapunzel as Cinderella and Jack as Prince Charming.
