* The princess of ''Film/SnowWhiteAndTheThreeStooges''. Her first scene shows her sweet as a little girl and sweet as a young woman, both in different white skating dresses [[PrettyInMink trimmed with ermine]].
* Lyssa from ''Film/{{Krull}}'', who rebukes the advances of [[BigBad The Beast]], holding faith in ThePowerOfLove, [[spoiler:which does bear out, although [[KillItWithFire ultimately in a pretty violent way]]]].

** Interestingly, two of Disney's most recent Modern Era princesses, [[Disney/{{Tangled}} Rapunzel]] and [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Anna]], are actually a lot closer to the Princess Classic standard than the {{Rebellious Princess}}es of its Renaissance films, due to them basically growing up sheltered. [[{{Reconstruction}} This in no way stops either of them from having well-rounded personalities]] or being {{Badass Princess}}es at the same time.

Also, being ground zero for any PrincessTropes, she can [[TookALevelInBadass get an upgrade]] to BadassPrincess if the story requires her to (and can even overlap with KickingAssInAllHerFinery). Likely to browbeat SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers into any GrumpyBear she finds.

* Fairy Princess Dawn in ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic'', is feminine, naïve, and InLoveWithLove. All to contrast with her BadassPrincess elder sister, Marianne.

* Literature/FirebirdTrilogy: Princess Carradee Angelo is gentle, honorable, sweet, and rather uninterested in politics. Unfortunately for her, as eldest, she is the heir to the throne, which leads to her being thrust into ruling before she is truly ready for it. She contrasts with her sisters Phoena, who is a PoliticallyActivePrincess, and Firebird, who is a BadassPrincess.
* PlayedWith in the tale of Vivenna and Siri from ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}''. Vivenna was raised as a PrincessClassic but ended up getting pushed into a BadassPrincess role, while her RebelliousPrincess sister Siri ended up in the PrincessClassic slot. Both do excellently in their new role.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'''s [[WhiteMagicianGirl Estellise]] "Estelle" [[ShelteredAristocrat Sidos]] [[CombatMedic Heurassein]] [[ReconstructedTrope reconstructs]] this. Definite girly girl, innocent, sweet, and has powerful HealingHands abilities from her [[RoyaltySuperPower royal heritage]]. Fully capable of [[BadassPrincess kicking ass]], is actually ''not'' a FriendToAllLivingThings despite attempts otherwise, she's somewhat stuck politically speaking in a SuccessionCrisis, and said healing power [[spoiler: actually makes her an ApocalypseMaiden until the resident TeenGenius Rita solves the problem.]] She does, however, still need some saving at times (though it's fully justified) and though she has a "[[KnightInSourArmour Knight]]" in [[DeadpanSnarker Yuri]] [[BloodKnight Lowell]] there is absolutely no romance between her and him (though there is some ShipTease it's ultimately not portrayed as a romance) as she instead shows more interest in the [[BlackMagicianGirl hot-tempered mage]] Rita who is [[LesYay even more interested in her]].

* She is shy and demure, and so delicate that [[DamselInDistress she usually can't lift a finger to defend herself]]. That's what [[KnightInShiningArmor the brave knight]] [[MenAreTheExpendableGender is for]].

* Her clothes are always elegant, whether [[ModestRoyalty simple]] or [[ErmineCapeEffect opulent]] (and either [[VirginInAWhiteDress white]], [[PrincessesPreferPink pink]], [[TrueBlueFemininity blue]], or [[GracefulLadiesLikePurple purple]]). If she [[PrincessInRags ends up in rags]], she still makes the rags beautiful on her.
** When she wears her RequisiteRoyalRegalia, it tends to be dainty, to represent her demure and delicate nature. Particularly, her CoolCrown will often be a tiara or small crown.

** Sansa Zigzagged with Sansa. Though not initially a princess in her own right, she was raised by her mother to be the perfect princess and is eager to fulfill this role, role when she is betrothed to a prince, only to find her PrinceCharming is a petulant psychopath ruling over a CrapsackWorld.CrapsackWorld. And then Robb declares himself King in the North, which ''does'' make her a princess in her own right. Too bad her hosts don't recognize Stark claims of sovereignty. By the time she could be undeniably referred as a princess in Season 6 when her brother Jon is crowned king, the naiveté and innocence associated with the trope have long faded.

* On the subject of Saints with a royal title, Saint Catherine of Alexandria provides a very early example of this trope (her name even comes from [[IncorruptiblePurePureness "Katharos", the Greek word meaning "pure"]]!. It is a somewhat unusual one, however, as the virgin princess is wed to ''{{Jesus}} Christ'' in mystic marriage (ie. a dream-vision) and ''chooses martyrdom rather than betraying her vows to Him!''
