* ''Franchise/CodeGeass'' has a "from bad to worse" example with ''actual'' royals - Prince Lelouch and Princess Nunnally were already pretty looked down on in the royal family, because their mother, Empress Marianne, was a commoner. After her assassination, they are completely abandoned and exiled to a country their father the Emperor is about to invade. They survive only due to the Ashford family, a noble family that lost their rank because of association with Empress Marianne. Reuben Ashford helps them [[FakingTheDead fake their deaths]] and live as OrdinaryHighSchoolStudents - until Lelouch gets the titular power and becomes the masked rebel leader [[MyHeroZero we all know and love]].

** Subverted in that they actually got more respect as students in the school than they did as royalty, as did Milly - she's the StudentCouncilPresident and Lelouch is her Vice President.

* ''Franchise/CodeGeass'' has Nunnally Lamperouge, a literal princess if down a bit on the Imperial pecking order. Crippled, blinded and exiled with her brother and as such left out of a lot of the general goings on by people just trying to protect. The ''Nightmare of Nunnally'' goes ever further with her being picked on by one of the school bullies who apparently doesn't know her princess status.
** Cornelia starts season 2 as a more RebelliousPrincess doing her own thing but falls and [[spoiler:spends a large chunk of the rest of the season cooling her heels in a Black Knights prison cell]].
** Milly partially fits as well. She's not a princess, but her aristocratic family experienced quite the fall after Empress Marianne's death due to their ties to her.

* This is essentially the series metatrope of ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', with various characters, including Anthy, Kanae, Mrs. Ohtori and others all playing with this trope in a harsh deconstruction of prince and princess tropes.
* Ange in ''Anime/CrossAnge'' after being outed to everyone ([[LockedOutOfTheLoop and herself as well]]) as a [[AntiMagic Norma]]. Her princess title gets striped from her in such a spectacular and tragic way that she is this trope's [[Pantheon/RoyaltyDemigodsAndQuasideities official avatar]].
