* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', BigBad Zola 'Heterodyne' [[spoiler: aka Zola Anya Talinka Venia Zeblinkya Malfeazium, cousin to Agatha Heterodyne]] exploits this trope enormously, successfully convincing multiple characters that the only reason she's agreed to pretend to be the Heterodyne is because of the pretty dresses and fancy parties. It really, ''really'' isn't. She turns out to be one of the most formidable antagonists in the comic to date.
--> '''Zola:''' Once I'm settled in as the Heterodyne, I shall have a big, fancy party! And I'll wear a ''pretty dress'', and I'll dance with ''all'' the boys - but mostly ''you'', of course.\\
'''Zola:''' ''[a long while later]'' ...and gold and pearl beads on the lace trim! And for ''you''-\\
'''Tiktoffen:''' We're safe, my lady.\\
'''Gil:''' Safe from ''what?'' The ''fashion police?''\\
'''Tiktoffen:''' The [[MalevolentArchitecture Castle]]. We're in a dead zone now. Before, it could hear everything we said.\\
'''Zola:''' I ''want'' the Castle to underestimate me. Surely ''you'' didn't as well?

She is or acts like she's seven years old at the most. PrincessesPreferPink so that's probably her favorite color. She'll imagine herself as a [[PrincessClassic pretty princess]] or pretend to be a [[FairytaleWeddingDress princess bride]]. Her court will be consist of [[GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals stuffed animals]] and dolls. She might want a PrinceCharming by her side as long as she still gets to be her DaddysGirl, looking up to him as if he's a king. She'll probably desire to have [[AllGirlsLovePonies at least one pony or unicorn]]. If you tried to explain it to her she wouldn't understand why GirlsNeedRoleModels. To emphasize this concept she might have a SweetTooth because RealMenHateSugar.

If you ask a girl who's in preschool or kindergarten she'll probably know that EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses. She will have a fairy tale [[SpoiledSweet princess's attitude]] making her anywhere between a gracious but [[BreakTheCutie breakable cutie]] to a TinyTyrannicalGirl who might feel entitled to a [[AllGirlsLikePonies pony]]. Bonus points if she is a fan of the {{Disney Princess}}es.

* In at least one film version of ''ALittlePrincess'', Sara Crewe lives such a charmed life that she not only fancies herself a princess but says that all girls are princesses. She's nearly a teenager but it fits since it takes place in the Victorian period which is when the phase came from so it is probably expected to last longer. It's worth noting that Sara's idea of being a princess does not mean it entitles you to be a spoiled brat.

* Lana Lang's first scene on ''{{Smallville}}'' shows her as a child of three pretending to be a fairy princess -- which is unfortunately immortalized forever, as that is what she was wearing when the meteors fall.
* Rory Gilmore of ''GilmoreGirls'' doesn't want her grandmother to make her into a princess as she thinks of it being something for small children.

--> What I find fascinating about the series is that it really is ''girl power'' in action. It does not take traditionally "masculine" action tropes and simply gender swap them, no, and it does not [[RealWomenNeverWarDresses deny or condemn]] the attraction of the pretty princess fantasy. Instead, it takes all the "feminine" girly stuff like frilly princess dresses and pink unicorns and ''makes them into implements of power''. The hypothetical girl in the audience is being told that she can be ''as girly as she likes'' and ''still'' dream of growing up into power and responsibility. Feminine articles are not shackles or playthings to be eschewed, or tools good only for obtaining the approval of men -- they are treated as cool and desirable things, in and of themselves.
