Actually, this character [[NewerThanTheyThink started in the Victorian Era]]. In that time when stories were being shaped by {{Disneyfication}} and {{Bowdleri|se}}zation, the concept of CourtlyLove was warped to take all the sexual SubText out, and turn the noble lady into an [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism ideal of the times]]. All to provide only the most positive and [[ViewersAreMorons uncomplicated]] image to children, and even adults as well.

* Angelica Pickles in ''{{Rugrats}}'' suspects she may be one but decides to take three tests to prove it. First is by having [[{{Rapunzel}} Phil and Lil try and climb up her hair]]. Second she attempts to see if [[Literature/ThePrincessAndThePea she can feel a pea through a series of pillows]] but Chuckie eats the pea so they use a fork instead. And finally they check to see if [[Literature/{{Cinderella}} a slipper fits her foot]].

Added DiffLines:
* Defied by [[StrawFeminist Haley]] in the ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' episode "Familyland". She visits Fairy Tale Land, a section of the Familyland theme park, and convinces girls that the classic princess role model is an outdated stereotype.

* Averted in MercedesLackey's {{Valdemar}} books by Princess Elspeth, who starts off a RoyalBrat and becomes a {{tomboy}} after she's broken of the brattishness. Eventually she [[spoiler:abdicates her position as heir when it becomes obvious (to her, at least) that she'll serve her country better as a Herald-Mage than as its queen.]]

Added namespaces.
* One half of the soul and fiber of ''{{Shrek}}'' is about subverting this one by turning Princess Fiona into TheLadette. It is deconstructed further in ''Shrek the Third''. Sleeping Beauty is narcoleptic, Cinderella is an obsessive-compulsive cleaner, Snow White [[FriendToAllLivingThings summons woodland creatures]] with Music/LedZeppelin, and Rapunzel [[spoiler:wears a wig and is also TheMole]].

* The princess of ''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]].

* Princess Lili from ''Film/{{Legend}}'' starts out as a quintessential PrincessClassic, only to go through a BreakTheCutie process, accumulating in an intense case of CorruptTheCutie, only for [[spoiler:this to be revealed as a ruse she put on in order to trick Darkness into letting her get close enough to free a captured unicorn.]]

* ''RoseOfVersailles'' both {{deconstruct|ion}}s this, through the filter of MarieAntoinette's actual history, and {{invoke|dTrope}}s it when Maria Theresa orders a PR campaign to make her daughter seem like this.

A deconstruction is not a straight use.
These days, if she's played straight in a story, it's highly unlikely for that story to be taken seriously. (Note that this clause is subject to the usual [[TropeEnjoymentLoophole loophole]] for {{deconstruction}}s.) Most writers would give her some flaws, some depth. She could be sheltered and demure, but not a FlatCharacter.
