* Jessie Kay is one of pro wrestling's purest examples. Despite claiming to hate [[RealWomenDontWearDresses all things girly]] she's [[NapoleonDelusion convinced]] she's the princess of [[{{Joisey}} Vorhees Township]] and should therefore be waited on accordingly.

** Kaguya also fits, though not literally being a princess, she is the highest ranking of the surviving Japanese noblewomen, delicate, though spirited, with all the personality of a traditional fictional princess, and the head of the NAC, which governs the Japanese "on behalf" of the Britannain Prince/Princess in charge of Area 11. Though she's not said to suffer as much as the Britannian Princesses, all of her family are dead, and [[spoiler:by the end of the series, she is the chairwoman of the UFN -- composing of the countries of at least half the world - though at the cost of her self-declared husband.]]

* ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'' has had a surprising number of princesses join their team: Comicbook/{{Starfire}}, [[Comicbook/WonderGirl Donna]], [[SixthRangerTraitor Terra]] and arguably [[AntiAntiChrist Raven]]. {{Parodied}} [[http://waitingforthet.tumblr.com/post/162429199930/even-barbara-gordons-dad-is-sort-of-like-the-king here]].

* {{Averted}} in ''Film/{{Cinderella 2015}}''. The movie emphasizes the prince choosing Cinderella over other possible princesses. [[spoiler:Moreover, Cinderella becomes a queen, not a princess, upon marriage, since Kit had been made king due to his father's death.]]

"[[RescueSex reward him properly]]". In the second movie, she becomes his LoveInterest and play a bigger role in the story.

* The warlord Manzai from ''[[Literature/{{Spellsinger}} Chorus Skating]]'' evidently believed this in-universe, as he ''collected'' princesses abducted from neighboring countries. The party that freed his collectibles found this trope subverted when their five rescued charges prove to be [[SpoiledBrat quite a handfull]].

* ''Series/TheMysticKnightsOfTirNaNog'' features a FiveManBand of warriors who utilize the elements of earth, air, fire, water and, oddly, forest. Four of the Knights are male, one is female -- Princess Deirdre. She [[ActiveRoyalty takes over her father's duties when he's incapacitated]]. Also, three of the male knights were princes from other kingdoms [[spoiler:including the one they were fighting against!]]

* Pops up a couple of times in ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch''. When Sabrina is preparing for her wedding she becomes obsessed with being a princess. To the degree that she summons Cinderella for advice.
** It's also given a Gender Flip in the season 1 finale. Sabrina is locked in a tower by a troll. And it's legal. The only way to save her is if a ''Prince'' rescues her. Said troll does dress Sabrina up like a PrincessClassic though.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' 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. [[spoiler: If a Male Avatar marries any of the above, his daughter Morgan would be a princess by birthright]].

* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' subverts this in a game called "Castles and Knights". Since Bob rebooted into a knight, the viewer assumes that Dot has rebooted into the princess and is the damsel in distress. The subversion comes when it's revealed that ''Enzo'' has rebooted into the princess, and Dot rebooted into another knight. [[FridgeHorror Very disturbing when you think of what this would do to a little boy's psyche]].

** Princess Bula certainly thinks so. The fact that she's super-strong and an excellent fighter means no one tells her she actually isn't.
