(Pronounced like ''o-joe''. Or ''eau-djeau'' if you speak French.)

'''''Ojou''''' (often ''Ojou-san'' or ''Ojou-sama'', as they are the more formal honorifics), a formal Japanese word for literally "young lady", is typically used in anime when referring to wealthy, high-class female characters. This term should not be confused with ''Oujo'', which means "princess" (literally "lord's daughter"). ''Ojou'' is written with distinctly different kanji and has the accent on the second syllable while ''oujo'' has it on the first. Regardless, this entry is in fact suitable for both, due to shared personality and mannerisms.

Most Ojou characters can be boiled down to three main types: a ProperLady variety, an IceQueen variety and a RoyalBrat variety. See the [[Analysis/{{Ojou}} Analysis For This Page]] to see how those three types tend to play out.

* Annagramma Hawkin, Tiffany Aching's social nemesis in the young adult ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' books, embodies the second version of this trope. Slightly subverted in ''Wintersmith'', where it's revealed that [[spoiler: her family isn't rich at all]] and she actually starts to learn from experience.

* Claudia Enfield from ''LightNovel/TheAsteriskWar'' is the StudentCouncilPresident of the school the protagonists attend to and the daughter of a high-ranking official from a MegaCorp that essentially rules the world. Ayato even lampshades that, given the current political climate, Claudia has a better social standing than Julis, who is an actual princess.

** Rinne from ''Anime/VividStrike'' is an adopted example.
