* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' both Daenerys Targaryen and [[spoiler: Arya Stark]] count, though the latter only after her brother [[spoiler: Robb Stark]] declares himself king. Then there's the Sand Snakes, the bastard daughters of [[DepravedBisexual Prince Oberyn Martell of Dorne.]]

* Though not exactly a princess, the Krogan female known as "Eve" in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' is [[spoiler:the only volunteer who survived a series of gruesome experiments to restore her species ability to reproduce]], wears a veil, is very soft spoken, and needs to be [[DamselInDistress escorted to an escort ship]]. When taken from her pod to step into the shuttle, another group of attackers come around the corner, to which she just grabs Wrex's shotgun and [[FiringOneHanded blasts them all away]], stating that she ''doesn't'' need babysitting. She's still a [[MightyGlacier Krogan]] after all.

** Also, [[spoiler: in Part 2 of the Season 6 premiere, ''The Crystalling'', despite the odds and time being against them, Celestia and Luna put their own lives in jeopardy to hold of the Frozen North's blizzard for as long as they can until they are sure both of them, and the citizens of the Crystal Empire, are able to evacuate to a safer haven]].

* WesternAnimation/{{Princess Gwenevere|AndTheJewelRiders}}, heiress to the throne of New Avalon, and her {{Archenemy}}, Princess Kale (her aunt). Kale took up dark sorcery to TakeOverTheWorld. Gwen and crew are all that can stand up to Kale's attempts, especially after Kale took out Merlin.

* As a followup to the above ''Anime/{{Voltron}}'' example, ''WesternAnimation/VoltronForce'' gives us an OlderAndWiser Allura (who, despite still serving as TheChick of the FiveManBand, [[TookALevelInBadass takes a more active role in combat]], even fearlessly facing down a BackFromTheDead Lotor ''without'' the help of the Lions), as well as her niece, the ''very'' {{ninja}}-esque Larmina. [[spoiler: As of "Roots of Evil" she's now a badass ''Queen.'']]
* Bloom, Stella, and Aisha/Layla in ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' are the princesses of Domino, Solaria, and Andros respectively. They are also powerful fairies that frequently fight and defeat evil witches, wizards, and monsters. In the 4Kids version, Musa is the princess of Harmonia, and she's part of the same team as Bloom, Stella, and Layla. Bloom is especially notable for singlehandedly defeating two of the {{Big Bad}}s: She easily defeats [[spoiler: Icy]] at the end of Season [[spoiler: 1]], and completely destroys [[spoiler: Valtor]], who is arguably the deadliest enemy the Winx ever faced.
* In ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'', Comicbook/{{Storm}} turns out to be the princess of an African tribe. Does that demote her to a helpless DamselInDistress? No! She's still the same Storm we know and love. Given that the comic book version was worshiped as a goddess by her tribe, that's no surprise. This is just a backstory that's been modified a little so as to avoid offending {{Moral Guardian|s}} types who would find it blasphemous that a human character was treated as divine.

* Keyleth of the Air Ashari from WebVideo/CriticalRole is essentially a princess among her people, especially since she is the daughter of her tribe's headmaster. And despite her social awkwardness, she does show her badassery time and time again, be it through her [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Wild Shape]] abilities or her [[ElementalPowers mastery of elemental magic]].
