* SpotlightStealingSquad: While Snow White was the very first princess to be created by Disney, the lead princess in this franchise is Cinderella, Disney's second princess. As a result, she gets more attention than Snow White and has more merchandise made than her. Case in point: whenever Snow White gets re-released on home video, there's very few pieces of tie-in merchandise released (with the 2001 release only getting a [[UsefulNotes/{{McDonalds}} Happy Meal] and the 2017 release only getting a set of collector's dolls), while whenever Cinderella gets re-released, tons of tie-in merchandise is made.

* CanonDiscontinuity[=/=]ExiledFromContinuity: While the official roster includes [[ArtifactTitle two characters who are not princesses]] and other non-princesses have appeared from time to time, there are several actual princesses from the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon who have been omitted. The roster has always tended to skew towards more popular works, which is usually taken to be the main reason [[Disney/TheBlackCauldron Eilonwy]] and [[Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire Kida]] have never been included, although the DarkerAndEdgier aspects of those two films may also be part of the reason. Non-human princesses such as [[Disney/{{Bambi}} Faline]], [[Disney/TheLionKing Nala, and Kiara]] are also left out, likely because they don't wear glamorous clothes or jewelry, and consequently [[VirtualPaperDoll can't be dressed up]] like the human princesses (though it may also be because like {{most writers|AreHuman}}, most audience members are human). In other cases, the nature of the source material is the most likely factor: [[spoiler:[[Disney/WreckItRalph Vanellope von Schweetz]]]] is never included, probably in part because her status as a princess is a spoiler,[[note]]and because she [[spoiler: relinquishes her title and abolishes the monarchy in Sugar Rush]] almost immediately after TheReveal[[/note]] but likely also due to her film being aimed at an older audience and her character [[DefiedTrope not fitting the]] PrincessClassic model at all.



* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Each Princess has their own color, and a 3-year old girl can spot them from across the Disney Store. Snow White is white (or the primary colors), Aurora is pink, Cinderella is blue, Ariel is sea green, Belle is yellow, Jasmine is aquamarine, Pocahontas is tan, Mulan varies between red or green and yellow, Tiana is green, Rapunzel is lavender, and Merida is royal blue or dark teal. Makes it real easy to tell which princess is currently your daughter's favorite.

* NeutralFemale: Despite being stereotyped as "sitting around waiting to be rescued", this trope is actually averted. Never has a Franchise/DisneyPrincess stood and watched while the man fought; at worst they're incapacitated by magic or attempting to fight as best as they can.

* NonStandardCharacterDesign: When a princess officially becomes a Disney Princess, they get a glitzy makeover so they can all share a unified art style. However, after fan backlash on Merida getting the "princess treatment," despite being an awkward ActionGirl, they ceased using her Disney Princess design. On the roster on the official website, she uses art from her movie which is not only a different art style, but is 3D when the others (even Rapunzel) are 2D. We still feature her briefly used Disney Princess art at the top around here though.

* PrincessesPreferPink: Surprisingly doesn't appear as much as you might expect. Although Cinderella, Belle, Ariel, Rapunzel and Aurora have pink costumes - they don't wear them for very long and their iconic gowns are different colours. Aurora is however usually advertised in her pink dress, possibly to break up the monotony of blue outfits. This trope may also be the reason Mulan gets advertised wearing her pink dress from the beginning of the movie.
* ProperLady: The three classic princesses Snow White, Cinderella and Aurora are all well-mannered and humble, quite different from the newer heroines.

(She ''is'' the only one whose originating fairy tale specifically states that she goes for a ride in a wheeled vehicle.) Ariel and Aurora promote ocean protection and forest fire prevention, respectively. Belle and her friends head a campaign for healthy eating and exercise.

Pocahontas has hair down to her behind, though the exact length is hard to determine since it's constantly being blown about by a DramaticWind.

* SatelliteLoveInterest: The lack of character of the Snow White's Prince and Prince Charming (and occasionally Prince Phillip and Prince Eric) is subject to much mocking by fans. The princes with the most development--Aladdin, Beast and Naveen--also are in the title of the movie, or otherwise the title doesn't mention a character at all, in the case of Flynn. Cinderella's prince got a lot more likeable and charismatic in the sequels, in particular ''A Twist in Time''.[[note]] Part of why Snow White's and Cinderella's princes are so bland is that the animators had difficulty animating realistic men-- in contrast to women, animals, and cartoony men like the Seven Dwarfs, who were all animated with a more emotive, exaggerated fluidity rather than strict realism. They were written to have large roles, but lack of satisfaction with the animation and time constraints let to it being dropped. They didn't get the hang of it until Prince Philip, but "Animating the Prince" was considered a joke well into the Aladdin days.[[/note]]
** Eric got some decent character development eventually, but not until the Broadway musical since most Little Mermaid spin-offs take place before Ariel meets him.
