This study attempts an analysis of the similarities and differences of an intrinsic structure, the patterns of
intrinsic structure, and their influence on the fairy tales. The research samples consisted of 12 fairy tales.
The study finds that the plots consist of: a male character, who wandering in a jungle, accidentally comes
across a lake where fairies are bathing. He steals a fairy’s shawl and forces her to marry him. The fairy finds
her shawl that is stolen and she finally goes back to heaven. The following tales are built on such structure:
Arya Menak (East Java), Jaka Tarub (Central Java), Telaga Bidadari (South Kalimantan), Raja Omas dan
Bidadari (Simalungun), Oheo (Southeast Sulawesi), Lahilote (Gorontalo), Datu Pulut (South Kalimantan),
Bulalo lo Limbutu (Gorontalo), Mahligai Keloyang (Riau), Putri Mambang Linau (Riau), Tumatenden
(Minahasa, North Sulawesi), Rajapala (Bali). The similarity among some fairy tales seems to have occurred
because of the mutual correlation among them and the context of dissemination.
Keywords: fairy tale, intrinsic structure, the stories similarity and difference, and influence studies.
