* [[ZigzaggedTrope Zig-zagged]] with Grimnosh, the scro general in the ''TabletopGame/{{Spelljammer}}'' novel ''The Radiant Dragon''. He wears the same black armour with spikes as his followers, and while other scro paint the spikes brightly, or use jewels if they can afford it, Grimnosh's are just a dull, grey metal. A ''very expensive'' dull, grey metal.

* Bloom from ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' is far more comfortable being a regular girl than a princess. Justified in that she didn't know she was a princess until some time later.

** Belgarath himself isn't technically royalty, but ''is'' an ancient immortal, the first disciple of the god Aldur, and [[TheArchmage the most powerful sorcerer in the world]]. He also has fashion sense and personal hygiene comparable to a hobo.

* {{Exaggerated}} and {{Invoked}} by Princess Luna in ''FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse'' fic "At The Grand Galloping Gala." While Princess Luna usually makes use of the ErmineCapeEffect by [[PimpedOutDress dressing up for the big noble parties]] (and the Gala is the biggest of the big), this time she wants to rebuke the nobility of the Night Court for trying to deny emergency funds to Ponyville after it was hit by an especially nasty and destructive curse. To that end, she not only forgoes the fancy dresses but even lays aside her regalia and turns off her astral mane and tail as part of a scheme

The end result is that she looks pretty much like one of the Ponyville residents she invited to the Gala as part of a scheme the aforementioned rebuke.

** Considering that they're long descendants of [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Marth]], they must've gotten that from Caeda/Sheeda (who is Marth's wife), who is never seen on a royalty garb, preferring to wear normal dresses plus necessary armors for combat, and activities include cooking normal non-gourmet food (and eating those normal foods too), [[TomboyPrincess fighting while riding a Pegasus]], and mingling with commoners, which led her to be able to recruit more units than usual while being something of a kind 'girl next door' type (also winning lots of the loyalty of many non-nobility units. Ask Ogma about it).

* [[UsefulNotes/ThePope Pope Francis]] showed up in the Italian newspapers pulling a [[KingIncognito Pope Incognito]] in the simple black trousers, black dress shirt and clerical collar of a rank-and-file priest while working a night-shift in a soup kitchen.

This seems to be the mark of Francis's papacy in general; a humble man that calls out his subordinate clergy for spending lavishly (he fired one bishop for spending a billion dollars to tile a floor). He's even written ''a children's book''.

* A notable example was Louis IX (later canonized as a saint by the Catholic Church for his "[[TheCrusades Crusades]]" in North Africa), whose rather humble personality is recorded in the memoirs of his friend Jean de Joinville. St Louis preferred to hold the royal court under a tree in the royal garden as opposed to an official room. He also often invited his lords to sit next to him on the steps by the royal throne to converse on state matters. This is also a slight deconstruction, as although Louis appears to have been a great guy, his modesty made his officials somewhat uncomfortable, as they preferred stricter hierarchy.
