Rumplestiltskin and Mr. Gold's Deals are featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time. They début in the first episode of the first season.


Throughout the realms, Rumplestiltskin became known as a being of great power and was feared because of his ability to grant a person's deepest wishes and darkest desires with magical deals that proved to be worse than he would initially proclaim. These deals appear to transcend into the Storybrooke reality as well, with Rumplestiltskin's counterpart Mr. Gold retaining a similar disposition for swindling people in desperate situations. In either reality, it appears that Rumplestiltskin always benefits in the long term through his deals, despite short term set-backs brought about by certain individuals. He has only broken one deal as Rumplestiltskin and a second deal as Mr. Gold. A third deal was negotiated with William Smee, but never carried out.
