* Averted with ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. When Princess Elsa comes of age near the beginning of the movie, she has her coronation, since the story is loosely based on The Snow ''Queen''.

* The hierarcy of the Aristocrat Club in ''RuleOfRose'' ends in the Rose Princess, which is justified considering that these are young girls playing a long-winded game - obviously Princess sounds better to them than a Queen.

* Averted in Fallout3, where the children of Little Lamplight reject the reign of Angela, who proclaims herself a princess after being elected mayor and is removed after only five minutes. * In both timelines of RadiantHistoria, Queen Protea is deposed one way or another, but Eruca continues calling herself Princess. Justified, as there's bigger issues preventing her having time to be coroneted, [[spoiler:and Stocke being being her older brother Ernst makes her claim to the throne unclear for a while]].

* In the SailorMoon manga, the Inner and Outer Senshi are revealed to have been the princesses (and also appear to be the main rulers) of their respective planets. This is somewhat offset, and possibly explained, by the fact that they are subordinate to Princess Serenity. ** Prince Endymion is a possible male example, since he appeared to be the main ruler of the Earth during the Silver Millenium. To make it even weirder, he eventually does become King of the Earth in the 30th century, with Neo-Queen Serenity, where he is implied to be a glorified consort.

While she is the host for travelers to her country, she also states that it doesn't actually have any government or even rules.

* Due to her fathers insanity, Hilde is this for her nation in ''SoulCalibur IV''. She's technically regent, however, not the monarch.

* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'', a crossover between ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' and ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'', pokes fun at the former's constant use of this trope -- while dimensional transplant Xenilla is able to wrap his head around Celestia and Luna both being princesses via the justification of them being co-rulers, he simply can't understand why Cadence is still called ''Princess'' even when she's ruling the Crystal ''Empire'', asking why she isn't an "Empress". And hilariously, when he points this out, no one is able to explain it to him; it seems it never crossed their minds as being odd. Doesn't stop him from constantly referring to Cadance as "Empress Cadenza" under the justification of "just because you guys got it wrong doesn't mean I have too.".

* In [[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]], after [[spoiler: [[ItsALongStory Chrysalis is born as a dark Celestia clone as the result of baking gone wrong]]]], she questions why Celestia calls herself a princess when she's the only one ruling. Celestia says its because [[GenreSavvy the title of princess brings up the image of youth and beauty]]. Chrysalis interrupts and says that's stupid, and chooses to call herself a queen, leading to an argument between the two. * Like the ''Franfic/TheBridge'' example above, the [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra The Legend of Korra]] fanfic [[FanFic/BookFiveLegends Book Five: Legends]] pokes fun at this trope with CloudCuckoolander Princess Koko (implied to be a descendant of King Bumi from Aang's era). She downright [[InsistentTerminology ''insists'']] on being addressed as a Princess despite ostensibly being a Queen, and a figurehead of a Queen who answers to a Minister anyway. She's equally insistent on this title being used with Korra, despite her Avatar title generally superseding mere mortal titles.

* An unusual male example, [[{{Batman}} the Joker]] has declared himself "The Clown ''Prince'' of Crime" but is the leader of his gang, which should make him "The Clown ''King'' of Crime" but then he'd lose the pun.

When Celestia banished Nightmare Moon she actually ''was'' offered the title of "Queen", but turned it down as not to appear unapproachable by a populace that was scared of her power. The implication is 1,000 years of great leadership by Celestia caused "Princess" to be the de-facto highest royal title for a female ruler.
