Disney has included others in the merchandise at times, such as Alice of ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' and Giselle of ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'', but they have never officially been added to the roster. [[note]] this is because Disney would have to pay Creator/AmyAdams royalties to use her image so they decided against it [[/note]] Esmeralda of ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' was an actual Princess until 2004. Anna and Elsa from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' were expected to be the 12th and 13th to join the line-up, but it appears Disney plans on retaining the "Frozen" brand as a unique entity from the Disney Princess franchise.

* ParentalAbandonment: Every princess lost at least one parent, except for Aurora, and she didn't even know her parents until she was 16 (to hide her from a curse).

* ParentService: The merch tends to make all the girls a bit more curvy than in the films. There's some of it in the films. Notably Ariel is effectively nude when she turns into a human, Jasmine gets dressed up in [[GoGoEnslavement a sexy slave outfit by Jafar]], Pocahontas gets a long shot where she's climbing up a rock and her ass is in the centre of the camera, and Mulan takes a naked dip in the river.

* RapunzelHair: Jasmine's hair goes down to her thighs, Merida has hair down to her hips curled (and would therefore be enormously long straight) and Rapunzel is based on the TropeNamer fairytale (though like that story loses it at the end). Pocahontas has hair down to her ass, though the exact length is hard to determine since it's constantly being blown about by a DramaticWind.

Added DiffLines:

** To lesser degrees than Pocahontas and Mulan, Jasmine and Tiana also get this treatment. Many have took notice how often these 4 particular princess usually get the crap end of the stick, and some have speculated it to be race related issue, as they are the only non-white princesses, and ironically some of the far more recent and recognizable ones. Despite that, they are less likely to be showcased.

* FollowTheLeader: Franchise/{{Barbie}}, in terms of the toys. Mattel is behind both doll franchises. Another Mattel property, ''Franchise/EverAfterHigh'', also calls back to fairy tales and has many characters based on the princesses whose stories are covered in this line. (In fact, in EAH, princesses are a privileged social class, which seems to be inspired by the success of the Disney Princess line.)

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The redesign of Pocahontas outfit adds glittering jewels.
** It seems the only jewels on Pocahontas' redesign costume are turquoise, which was popular among Native Americans...in the Southwest. A Native from coastal Virginia would more likely wear shells than turquoise as decoration.

** Jasmine will find herself sometimes wearing a European style PimpedOutDress that would not have even existed around her time.



* DamselInDistress: Most of the princesses were in distress in their movies at least once, most notably Aurora, Ariel, Jasmine, and Snow White who were in mortal peril and whose rescue was the climax of the movie.
** Notable averted, however, with Mulan, Merida, and Tiana, who were all very active in their own movies and didn't usually need rescued from danger as bad as the others. Furthermore, Ariel, Jasmine and Rapunzel, qualify as [[DamselOutOfDistress damsels out of distress]] or {{Defiant Captive}}s.

* MsFanservice: Ariel and Jasmine perhaps have the most exaggerated figures and the most skin showing. Jasmine especially, as she is seen through the eyes of the male hero who is in love with her.

Pocahontas as well to a more limited extent - as she's significantly older than the rest. Likewise John Smith doesn't shoot her because he's so stunned by her beauty.

* PrincessesPreferPink: Surprisingly doesn't appear as much as you might expect. Although Cinderella, Aurora, Belle, Ariel, Belle and Rapunzel each and Aurora have at least one dress that is pink (though none of them are the main costumes within - they don't wear them for very long and their movies).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.

* TheMerch: The very premise is to give girls official items for the princesses, when they weren't available before.



** Cinderella: According to WordOfGod from Walt himself, ''Cinderella'' takes place in the middle of the nineteenth century because "that was a romantic period".
