** Despite not being a princess, Mila from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker The Wind Waker]]'' qualifies. She used to be filthy rich and spoiled, but after she was kidnapped by the Helmaroc King, her father blew all his fortune trying to get her back, forcing both of them into poverty. Her father doesn't mind, as long as his daughter is safe, but she hates the change so much that she's resorted to stealing stuff. Catch her red-handed and she'll realize the error of her ways, deciding to suck it in and work hard and honestly from now on.

** Mary's half-sister Elizabeth was also this trope after ''her'' mother fell out of favor with Henry and was executed. Unlike Mary, Elizabeth was a bit too young at the time to be defiant about it and did not lose nearly as much as Mary did in any case. (Henry's third wife, Jane, eventually got him to admit both of his daughters back to court.)

* Patricia Fernández from ''YoSoyBettyLaFea''. The [[BrainlessBeauty not very smart but beautiful daughter]] of a rich family, a vain woman with absolutely NoSympathy for others, only went to college to get a MRSDegree (to the point that one of her catchphrases is "I studied six semesters of Finance in San Marino College" as if that was a thing to be proud of), all went to hell the moment her husband unexpectedly divorced her. It's all but explicitly pointed out that her fall is all of her own making, by annoying her husband and alienating her family, and the soap treats her as a ButtMonkey AssholeVictim since all her efforts are not to improve her situation but to maintain the facade.

** Midna in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' qualifies for at least most of this trope; Link just isn't aware of it for a long time. [[spoiler:She actually is the titular Twilight Princess, but was dethroned and disfigured by the usurper Zant. Everything she does for the first half of the game is done with the intent of regaining her rightful title, though gradually she warms up to the hero and becomes just as determined to regain Zelda's throne for her as she is to regain her own for herself.]]

* In ''TheTwelveKingdoms'', this trope defines [[spoiler: Shoukei]]'s attitude right after [[spoiler: the fall of her parents aka the king and Queen of Hou]]. Even when she's [[spoiler: barely saved from a CruelAndUnusualDeath]] and taken in as [[spoiler: a retainer of the Queen of Kyou]], she doesn't lose her arrogance and entitlement, and it's only after [[spoiler: she escapes from Kyou and then travels with Rakushun]] that she starts straightening up her act.

Added DiffLines:

* The Grave Robber in ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' was once a noblewoman who, for whatever reason, went into serious debt after the death of the rest of her family. As her name implies, she resorted to grave-digging to find valuables to pay it off.
