Of course, Rhodonite has a ([[OneManArmy not]] [[AxCrazy unfounded]]) reputation as an unflinching berserker while Rozalin has a bloody history as [[spoiler:Xenon, the "God of All Overlords"]].

** To drive the point home, when her husband was murdered by his archenemy, Projectra invoked the royal right to execute him, and instead of using her powers to do so, ''she snapped his neck with her bare hands.''

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'' - while the real Anastasia was royalty, she is recognised as "Grand Duchess" rather than princess.[[note]]The Russian royals called their daughters Grand Duchesses instead of princesses to give the impression that, as imperial royalty, they were of higher rank than a regular princess of a mere monarchy.[[/note]] But the film frequently refers to her as a princess just to avoid confusion. In a twist, she also [[spoiler: gives up the title and chooses to elope with Dimitri]].

* ''Manga/CityHunter'': A good number of stories involve the protection of princesses of fictional eastern and island kingdoms from evil pretenders to the throne. And if they aren't princesses, then they're Ojou of a rich Japanese family, with either Evil Uncles aiming for their heritage, or being in danger of being kidnapped for a ransom.

** This probably goes back to the [[TheOriginalSeries original]] [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam series]], whose Sayla Mass (real name: Artesia Som Deikun) is a princess-in-exile of TheKingdom-like Republic of Zeon founded by her father. By the time of ''MSG'', however, the former Republic is taken over by the villainous [[EvilChancellor Zabi]] family and transformed into a "[[TheEmpire Principality]]", so her heritage doesn't do her any favor. Although Sayla doesn't really count considering her father was a democratic leader, and Zeon only became a monarchy after her father died.

* Creator/TaraDuncan [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggerate this trope]] with all female prominent characters being princesses more or less officially; Tara is an heiress of the [[TheEmperor imperial category]] [[spoiler: (along with her long-lost sister)]]while her friends Sparrow and Fafnir are respectively non-heiress princess and TheChiefsDaughter. The female dragon Charm is later revealed being a princess too, like the demon Sanhexia.
