* {{Franchise/Barbie}} is largely an aversion to this when it comes to the dolls. Despite all the pink associated with her normally, when there is a ''princess'' doll, her clothes are rarely pink. The films are a different matter though.

* Princess Celestia in the current ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePony'' line is usually pink, although her character in the TV show is clearly white (albeit with a pale pink outline). This is apparently because Hasbro thinks girls will only buy the toy if it's pink. The [[PeripheryDemographic fandom]] was less than pleased, and it wasn't until a few years later that a white Celestia toy was released. Naturally, right around the same time, Princess Cadance, who ''is'' pink in the show, was introduced, so the toyline still has a pink princess.

to:

* ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'':
** This trope is usually subverted. Despite the multitude of princess ponies, most are not pink colored. The only pink furred or pink haired ones from G1 to G3 are: Primrose, Moondust, Sunbeam, Dawn, Glittering Gem, Brilliant Bloom, Royal Pink, Morning Glory, Ivy, Twinklestar, Trixiebelle, and Fuchsia. If anything, white, purple, and blue are just as common with princesses if not more so.

* Peach from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' onward. And the official art for the first game.
* Zelda wears a pink dress in ''VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink'', something which is made more clear in the [[AllThereInTheManual instruction booklet]] than the game itself. Judging by some of the promo art from [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda the original]], her dress there may have also been pink, although its in-game color is whatever color Link is wearing. In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' her dress was mostly pink, and subsequent games in the series usually have her wear a gown with pink accents.

Her clothes in ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' spinoffs are always pink. Her fire form in ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'' is an exception. It's white and red like her sprite in ''VideoGame/{{Super Mario Bros|1}}''.

** Zelda in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds'' is a direct sequel to ''A Link To The Past'' set several centuries later. Despite Link being [[GenerationXerox identical]] to his predecessor, Zelda looks more different from the Zelda in the previous game (though still has a StrongFamilyResemblance). Noticeably, she doesn't wear the blue dress of her ancestor and instead wears a more formal, pink dress. Her [[EvilCounterpart dark counterpart]] Hilda wears a purple dress.



* [[EmperorScientist Princess Bubblegum]] from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' is actually [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin part human, part bubble-gum]], so not only is her dress pink, but ''everything'' is, right down to her skin and hair. {{Averted}}, however, with most of the other princesses.

As a little point of interest, it should be noted that [[NewerThanTheyThink real life princesses of old were more likely to wear blue]]. This was because pink was considered a masculine colour until after WorldWarII, due to it being a shade of red.

** This trope gets mocked in the CutSong "We Know Better". The sisters as children list things that others say a princess "should" do and say that they subvert stereotypes. Elsa's trademark color is blue while Anna's green.

* While not ''officially'' a Princess (though she might as well be; she rules her country by birthright and.. um... hair right... and doesn't seem to have parents), LadyLovelyLocks is just about the most frilly pink girls' toy there was in the 80s. It was, in fact, her signature color, with her two handmaidens generally being characterized with blue and yellow, and the antagonist of her various stories, Duchess Ravenwaves, with purple.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', there's Maribelle, who favors pink in her outfits, and even retains it in her War Cleric or Valkyrie promotions. However, she's merely a duchess ''unless'' she marries Chrom.
* While her primary color is black (to emphasize the DarkIsNotEvil trope in play), Princess Elise of Nohr in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has a significant amount of pink in her wardrobe too. Her retainer Effie has an all pink suit of armor, but only counts as this trope if she marries royals Leo, Xander, the male Avatar [[spoiler: or Odin]]. Likewise, Hana of Hoshido also primarily wears pink samurai armor, but only counts as this trope if she marries Hoshidan royals Ryoma, Takumi, or the male Avatar.
