* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': The second movie, where Natsumi became a sea princess. Keroro's hairbrained idea to get her back involves dressing the rest of his troops as princesses. And he tries it again in the third movie.
** Momoka gets recast as an actual princess in the ''Musha Kero'' storyline. She is TheOjou, after all!
** Anime Sumomo displays some princess behavior in her first appearance -- the plotline is basically ''Film/RomanHoliday'' [[RecycledInSpace with a galactic pop star]].
** [[strike:Natsumi]] Princess Summer in ''Keroro RPG''.

* Princess Calla of ''WesternAnimation/GummiBears'' is an ActionGirl and BadassPrincess-in-training. Really, she'd rather be a knight.

** In the cartoon, there is a rather goofy king, making Zelda's title fitting.
** Furthermore, the fairy Sprite wasn't just any fairy, but proved to be the daughter of the fairy king Oberon. [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Yes, that Oberon]].

* Lord Genome, immortal ruler of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'''s pseudo-[[TheEmpire Empire]], sired little human girls just for the sake of having a princess around. Lord Genome's princesses were born naturally from his relationships with girls hand-picked because of their special genetics. The result we see, Nia, hits this trope pretty damn hard in title, attitude, appearance, and [[DamselInDistress usefulness]].

But in the manga, her men (the Briggs Bears) occasionally refer to her as "the Princess" as a sign of their love and respect.

** The reason the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon is stuffed with princesses is actually because they draw so much on fairy tales... but as of the 1990s, they centered merchandising on the princess characters, and you know the rest. Actually, only ''some'' of the princess characters got in; those that had bit parts, were from unpopular movies, or just weren't as merchandisable were shoved in the back. And they've tried a few times to add non-royals into the line, despite Mulan, Esmeralda, and Alice definitely not being princesses, either to ease concerns that the classic pantheon wasn't dynamic and/or integrated enough (Mulan being the best ActionGirl they could use, since they didn't have one) or to fill out various storybooks, music albums, etc. Pocahontas, another honorary member of the group, actually ''is'', but might not have been considered "classic" when the line was introduced. (That, or her clothes aren't considered pretty enough.) Naturally, this was somewhat referenced in ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'', where those who qualified as "[[MacGuffin Princesses of Heart]]" just happened to be popular characters on both sides of the Pacific. Alice, a non-princess, was in fact added to the list, with the thin justification that she becomes [[TheHighQueen a queen]] in [[Literature/AliceInWonderland the original books]] (and as foreshadowing that another seemingly normal character is also one). Ariel was in fact '''removed''' from the list for ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'', probably because, as a mermaid, she wouldn't be able to leave Atlantica to interact with the larger plot, but she gets to be an ActionGirl GuestStarPartyMember.
