This study examines the elements and several concepts on Ashputtel by Brothers Grimm that have been modified and rewritten into Cinder by Marissa Meyer. This study focuses on the way characters on Ashputtel are reflected into Cinder and the way Fairy tale’s concept of Ashputtel is reappeared in dystopian’s novel in Cinder. This study uses the qualitative method and applies intertextuality as the main theory and new criticism as the supporting theory. The result of the study shows that both Cinder and Ashputtel exhibit some differences in the attitude and characteristics of the main characters, the characterization of the life-saver characters, and the prince’s personality. Moreover, some of the fairy tale concepts in Ashputtel reappear in Cinder in the concepts of good versus evil, magical hero, the setting of place and time, and the ending of the story.
