** ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Gundam ZZ]]'' have Mineva Zabi, the last member of the Zabi family. She also features prominently in the latest Gundam Unicorn novel, and other (non-canon) adaptations. Mineva is just a puppet, though. She's seven years old and ruthlessly manipulated. By the way, how is she considered a princess? She's the last surviving Zabi, she should be queen even if she does need Haman as [[EvilChancellor a regent]]. She's still a princess because Zeon is principality, not a kingdom. The ruler of a principality has the title of "prince" or "princess", depending on gender.[[note]]In many languages, notably German as pre-unification Germany included many principalities as well as kingdoms, different words are used for the prince or princess who's reigning monarch of a principality and a prince or princess who's merely the relative of a king or queen and thus somewhere in the line of succession of a kingdom. In English, though, the distinction can only be determined through context.[[/note]]

* Emerald of the ''WebOriginal/DeviantartExtendeUniverse'' certainly fits the trope with her elegance and poise. It is even possible the setting is a principality specifically because of this trope. But Emerald is actually a PoliticallyActivePrincess and has a lot of responsibility as the leader of a small country. She acknowledges in "The Wanderer" that the traditional ideas of accessories and finery are only a small part of her job.

** {{Disney}}/{{Moana}} is the most recent Disney princess and expected to be added to the official Disney Princess line soon. Her film even lampshades her status in one scene where she insists that she's not really a princess and Maui points out that she ''is'', complete with animal sidekicks.

* ''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/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': The land of Equestria was originally going to be ruled by two WingedUnicorn queens, but ExecutiveMeddling made them princesses instead because [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen queens are apparently evil]] and princesses good in the minds of the audience. The show [[GirlsNeedRoleModels being what it is]], they took the concept and ran with it in the opposite direction from the usual. There are a couple other princesses since, but all are automatically RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething, and apparently you can become one by being awesomely accomplished enough. In other words, it's not just about being born royalty and then lounging around looking pretty. Well, except if you're [[PrinceCharmless Prince Blueblood]].
