* Subversion in the various incarnations of ''Franchise/SailorMoon''. Usagi/Serena ''wants'' to be like this and at times comes close despite herself. Being the {{Dojikko}} and a part-time PersonOfMassDestruction doesn't help. She went to "Princess Classes" in an attemp to be like this, naturally [[FemininityFailure she fails]] ([[EpicFail and in the process manages to out herself as Sailor Moon to the ]]MonsterOfTheWeek).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Sansa was raised by her mother to be the perfect princess and is eager to fulfill this role, only to find her PrinceCharming is a petulant psychopath ruling over a CrapsackWorld.
** Margaery is an astute politician and manipulator who puts on the persona of a charming and harmless princess to all and sundry. This has gained her the fanatical support of most of the common people, whom she's highly charitable with.

* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros's'' Peach and ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda's'' Zelda may have started out like this, but Peach is sometimes a parody (or at least heavily lampshaded version) of this (see the ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' games), and Zelda [[LadyOfWar got more depth]] to her character. Zelda even lampshades this in ''Spirit Tracks'' by saying that waiting for the hero to do his job is a "family tradition."

* Angelica Pickles in ''WesternAnimation/{{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]].

* Played with at every turn in ''Anime/PrincessTutu''. Neither [[MagicalGirl Princess Tutu]] nor [[DarkMagicalGirl Princess Kraehe]] are actually royalty - the only reasonable explanation for their titles is that they both assume they're going to marry [[PrinceCharming the Prince]]. Tutu might fit the model aside from that (replacing "amazing singer" with "amazing ballerina", naturally)...except that [[FirstEpisodeSpoiler she's actually a duck]], and [[NiceJobBreakingItHero she inadvertently causes misery for the whole cast]], if not a DownerEnding. Suffice it to say that [[WomanInBlack Kraehe]] [[DaddysLittleVillain isn't]] [[GreenEyedMonster exactly]] [[BrokenBird innocent]]. And [[spoiler: ''Kraehe'' gets the HappilyEverAfter]].

* Of the "core" Franchise/{{Disney Princess}}es, the three earliest, Disney/SnowWhite, Disney/{{Cinderella}} and [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Aurora]], fit this trope (even though Cinderella is a princess by marriage). Others like Ariel, Belle and Jasmine have stories that are a bit more complex.
** Interestingly, two of Disney's most recent 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.
