* Miriamele in ''Literature/MemorySorrowAndThorn'' is the RebelliousPrincess version, fleeing the ArrangedMarriage her JerkAss father attempts to force upon her and becoming part of the desperate struggle against the Storm King's power. She's not bad in a fight, being the archer, and plays a significant role in the redemption of the monk, Cadrach. True to the trope, she's also TheHero Simon's {{Love Interest|s}} and [[spoiler:becomes his queen after his MosesInTheBullrushes reveal.]]

** Interestingly, "the daughter of a king/queen" is something "Princess" is ''never'' used to mean in the MLP franchise (except in ''Tales,'' which is ''so'' SliceOfLife it would change little if the characters were humans living in your town.) In ''FIM'' the 'princesses' are alicorn goddesses (Lowercase-g Mt. Olympus level, mind you, rather than total omnipotence.) and we've even heard "As Celestia is my witness…" and the like more than once. In ''MyLittlePonyG3,'' in "The Princess Promenade," Wysteria became a 'princess' by finding a magic flower that is the symbol of office. This makes her ruler whether she wants to be or not. However, she eventually [[spoiler: coronates ''everyone'' so her friends can be her equals again.]] In "The Runaway Rainbow," G3 Rarity was the "princess" of a ceremony similar to a party or dance's 'king' or 'queen;' she didn't rule anything but ''did'' have an important role in bringing the first rainbow of the year (without which the world loses all color.) G1 has "The Quest of the Princess Ponies," where princesses with 'crowns' that look more like party hats form ''a whole society.'' Their magic wands are stolen by the villain of the week, causing all magic to go haywire. ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTales'' has the exception, where in "Princess Problems," a HappilyAdopted main cast member is suspected to be the long-lost daughter of a king and queen and doesn't want to leave her family.

*** However, in Season 6 [[spoiler: Cadance and Shining Armor had a daughter, Flurry Heart, making her a princess by birthright. On the ''other'' hand, she's the first naturally-born alicorn in Equestria, and with strong enough powers to require a PowerLimiter, so it's possible she holds the title in the 'traditional' way as well.]]

** As for ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', the Avatar, if female, is a princess of Hoshido raised with the royal family of Nohr. 'Princess' is even in her starting class's name! The {{Deuteragonist}} Azura is the opposite of the Avatar: a princess of Nohr raised with the royal family of Hoshido. Speaking of said royal families, in Nohr there's Camilla and Elise, and in Hoshido there's Hinoka and Sakura. If someone marries Leo or Takumi, they'd be princesses by marriage. (Marriage to Ryoma or Xander doesn't count since [[spoiler: they succeed to the throne, making their wives queens by the end of the game.) Marriage to a male Avatar counts as long as it's not the ''Revelations'' route. Ophelia is a princess by blood, being Lissa's granddaughter through her father (and Lissa's son) Owain/Odin. A Male Avatar, if married, will produce a daughter named Kana who also has Nohr Princess as her starting class. And if a man marries one of the above royals and produces a daughter, that daughter would be a princess.]]

** ''Awakening'' once again gives us a slew of princesses; there's Emmeryn and Lissa, who are [[WarriorPrince Chrom's]] older and younger sisters, respectively, and [[spoiler:there is his future daughter, Lucina. If he marries Sumia or Sully, their daughters, Cynthia and Kjelle, will also be princesses.]] Finally, [[spoiler:the BigBad Validar becomes the king of the Theocracy of Plegia during the game, so this would technically mean that [[PlayerCharacter the Avatar]], if female, would be a princess as well.]] Finally, we get Say'ri, the sword-wielding princess of Chon'sin.
