* Played with in ''LightNovel/{{Corsair}}'', where Aura is the princess of a pirate clan and already has the freedom most Rebellious Princesses want. She still rebels though, to the point where Canale knocks her out during a major attempt to rescue ''her'' because she refuses to place her safety above his own and go ahead without him. She also thinks she is TheHero's love interest, until Ayace callously tells her [[SubvertedTrope she can't marry Canale]] because they're [[BoysLove lovers]].

* Original ''Franchise/WonderWoman'' comics. After Steve Trevor crashed on Paradise Island, a contest was held to determine which Amazon would return him to the outside world. Princess Diana wanted to enter the contest but her mother Queen Hippolyta forbade her to do so. Diana entered the contest in disguise and bested all of the other contestants, winning the right to leave.
** Most retellings of Wonder Woman's origin maintain at least some tension between Diana and her mother when she first goes into Man's World (in the {{DCAU}}, she outright ''steals'' the Wonder Woman armor when Hippolyta takes a not-our-problem approach to the white martians' invasion). But it's outright deconstructed in Jill Thompson's ''The True Amazon'', where Diana is portrayed as an immensely spoiled {{Jerkass}} who [[spoiler:takes up the mantle of Wonder Woman as a penance for ''getting several other Amazons killed'' during the Contest]].

** Late in development, when she was still written as the BigBad, Elsa was one of these. It, along with her [[AnIcePerson powers]], caused her to be [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer ostrasized]] growing up and in turn caused her to become tempermental. According to the CutSong "We Know Better", Elsa never acted like what was expected out of a PrincessClassic. She likes [[TrueBlueFemininity blue]] instead of [[PrincessesPreferPink pink]], is adventurous, is outspoken, and hates acting demure. All her anger and rebellious attitude eventually caused her to [[ThenLetMeBeEvil become evil due to everyone expecting her]] to fulfil TheProphecy. Subverted in the final product. Elsa spends under 30 minutes as princess before being ascended and is anything but rebellious.

* In Literature/DeadWest, Lady Arabell of Atholl. Technically, she is a duchess, but otherwise qualifies, and she was specifically chosen as a bride to the Porcelain Doctor because of this characteristic. Arabell proves herself when she flees from Scotland before her ArrangedMarriage (after her planned marriage to Niall has already been broken up by her parents) to Africa, where his previous groom is stationed. She does this alone, without any kind of help except her gifts, and makes Niall very confused but otherwise proud. Cedric certainly approves her spunkiness, viewing Arabell's ActionGirl tendencies as worthy of a [=MacArkill=], and most likely this is why the ShotgunWedding with Niall ends up as a PerfectlyArrangedMarriage.

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' is somewhat unusual when it comes to this trope in that rebellious ''princes'' outnumber their female counterparts. Probably the most famous of these is Hector of Ostia from the seventh game; he's technically a minor noble compared to others [[spoiler: (until he becomes the leader of Ostia by the end of ''Blazing Sword'', and later of the whole Lycia alongside Eliwood)]], but otherwise hits every note of this trope.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philomena Saint Philomena]]. According to her myth, she was a Greek princess who spurned the affections of ''TheEmperor'' (in this case, Diocletian) because she wanted [[CelibateHero to keep her virginity vows]] and hated the idea of [[WifeHusbandry becoming a child bride]] just to sign the peace between Rome and her kingdom. It went FromBadToWorse, needless to say. [[note]]Since the whole myth is chock-full of historical inaccouracies (i.e. Diocletian was a married man and not a widow as the myth says and his wife outlived him, marrying a non-Roman woman was out of the question for him, ''there were no Greek small kingdoms by the time Philomena's story was supposed to take place'', etc.), it's highly likely that it was a fake story inspired by the tombstone in Philomena's grave: there WAS a martyr girl named Philomena, yeah, but it's almost impossible for her to have been a Rebellious Princess who told Diocletian to go fuck himself.[[/note]]

* From the Creator/HoneyWorks music video for "[[https://youtu.be/gR1kgZuBviw Pride Kakumei]]", we have [[spoiler:the ponytail boy]], though this is more of a case of a noble than a princess. She spent her days learning how to fight and use a sword, and seemed to run away from home in order to do it. Eventually her family caught up to her, but she was able to go back to training at the dojo.

** ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' downplays this. While Moana is drawn to the deep ocean she is willing to put those desires aside to fulfill the responsibilities of the chief's heir. It is only when [[DoomedHometown Te Ka's curse strikes Motonui's food sources]] and her father's phobia about venturing beyond the shallows blinds him to the optimal responses does she run off on an Epic Quest.

Her father disapproves of her choice, and has Link guard Zelda against her own will.
