** ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' has two subversions: Cagalli Yula Athha is a legitimate but RebelliousPrincess of Orb Union, while Lacus Clyne is not a real royalty but de facto the most powerful political figure in the entire Earth sphere. She is also [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl much more lady-like than]] [[{{Bifauxnen}} tomboyish]] Cagalli. [[AllThereInTheManual Lacus is a real royalty]], just too minor for it to matter.

* ''Manga/MurderPrincess'' is yet another subversion. The real princess of TheKingdom of Forland is a weak-willed {{Ojou}} but soon [[FreakyFridayFlip switches bodies]] with the most badass ActionGirl in history, who proceeds to kick much ass and become the titular character.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie2017'' adds another princess to the G-4 canon (see below). Princess Skystar is notably the first seapony to be a princess in the franchise [[spoiler: (even if she's really a hippogriff turned into a seapony)]]. She provides help to the Mane Six and even assists them in the FinalBattle.



** And the newest princess as of season 3 is none other than Twilight Sparkle, the main protagonist. Given that her ability is Magic, she now possibly doubles as TheArchmage of Equestria.
** As an additional note, when we say "ran with it", we mean that almost every single person with the official title of "Princess" not only fits the definition of "Queen", but could more accurately be called "{{Physical God}}dess [[InvokedTrope who prefers to be called Princess]]" (or "Archmage who prefers etc. etc." in Twilight's case).
*** It must be noted that Twilight Sparkle ''doesn't'' actually like being called a "Princess"; she seems to find the whole ordeal quite embarrassing.
** As of Season 6, we now have Princess Ember; a ''[[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons dragon princess]].''

Added DiffLines:

* {{UsefulNotes/Pocahontas}} was presented to the English as a princess - despite the Native American chieftain system not working that way. John Rolfe's parents were even alarmed at this, worrying that he had married too far above his station.

Usually, if she's got powers, she's TheChosenOne, and it's all [[NeverASelfMadeWoman because of her lineage]]. Her sheltered life has left her ill-prepared to cope with real adversity, [[DamselInDistress so don't expect her to be much of a hero]]. She'll likely be the WhiteMagicianGirl at best. This is usually true even if she grew up in a [[ChangelingFantasy normal family]] to [[RagsToRoyalty hide from her enemies]] -- perhaps frailty is in the blood.

* ''Literature/ChroniclesOfTheKencyrath'': Averted. Jame's father, and later her brother, are both effectively kings, but hold the title of ''Highlord'', making Jame '''not''' a princess.

Jame's father, and later her brother, are both effectively kings, kings but in their culture their rules hold the title of ''Highlord'', making "Highlord." By birth, Jame '''not''' simply has the title "Lady," the same as all Highborn women. She also holds the title [[spoiler:"Lordan" (the gender-neutral title held by a princess.lord's--including a highlord's--heir) because her brother ''chooses'' to bestow it on her. In their culture, people can pick any relative to be their heir, and female lordan are almost unheard of.]]

* The Franchise/DragonAge games have a handful of princesses, all of whom qualify for BadassPrincess. Cassandra Pentaghast, Seeker of Truth and Right Hand of the Divine, is a princess of the kingdom of Nevarra, although her RoyalBlood is of absolutely no interest to her. A female protagonist in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' who comes from either the Human Noble or Dwarf Noble background is entitled to be called a princess; the Dwarf Noble is the daughter of the king of Orzammar, while the Human Noble is the daughter of the ruler of a {{principality}} within Ferelden. And if Hawke, in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', is female and marries potential {{Love Interest|s}} Sebastian Vael, she becomes Princess of Starkhaven.
