** 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]].

The Rebellious Princess is usually a teenager, typically brash (since it goes hand in hand with being rebellious), and often blonde and/or has a TomboyishPonytail. If she's not the hero, quite often she's the hero's love interest. This will sometimes invoke MarryForLove not only as another way for her to rebel, but to also get out of an ArrangedMarriage. She usually qualifies as a [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Royal Who Actually Does Something]], and may qualify as a BadassPrincess, depending on how far she's willing to go to rebel. Sometimes the Rebellious Princess is the WhiteMagicianGirl, but not always: in video games she can also be an archer, [[LadyOfWar warrior]], or BlackMagicianGirl. Mage princesses are more likely to be found KickingAssInAllHerFinery. May also be a PoliticallyActivePrincess.

PoliticallyActivePrincess depending on the nature of her "rebellion".



Somewhat more common in the earlier days of the RPG genre than they are now; their population has dwindled with the reduced number of games involving monarchies. [[GenderInvertedTrope Male examples]] are exceedingly rare but not [[RebelPrince unheard of]].

** Cagalli Yula Athha in ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' is de facto the princess of the neutral state of Orb but runs off to wage guerrilla warfare against ZAFT in Africa. She is much less [[{{Tsundere}} volatile]] in the sequel, ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny Gundam SEED Destiny]]''.
** In ''[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]]'', we have the tomboyish and willful Maria Louise from Neo France doing lots of un-princess-like things to get the attention of her "Knight in League" and local Gundam Fighter, George de Sand. After she actually grows up and learns her lesson, Maria doesn't lose her spirit and does what she can to aid George and the Shuffle Alliance.

* [[HeroesWantRedheads Princess Eilonwy]] from the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'', whose outspokenness and rebelliousness at times border on childish brattishness. Since Disney created TheFilmOfTheBook with ''Film/TheBlackCauldron'', Eilonwy is would also be part of the previously listed Disney line-up; however, her characterization is a bit different in the film.

* Astrid from ''Fanfic/WhatTheWaterGaveMe'' falls into this category. Because of Hiccup's sacrifice and [[ConvenientlyAnOrphan the death of Astrid's parents]], Stoick adopted Astrid with intentions of making her his successor. The only problem is that she doesn't want to become chief.

** ''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.

* Aeriel in ''Literature/TheDreamlandChronicles'' is a minor {{aversion}}. She is an Amazon Princess so her adventuring doesn't really make her a rebel. What makes her a rebel to her people is that she [[StrawFeminist falls in love with a man]] and is willing to do things for him that her tribe considers dishonorable.

** Princess Tiltyu of Freege in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' though her dad is a duke instead of a king. Pretty much she's the only noblewoman in the first generation who ran away from home because she disagreed with their methods (Princess Ayra of Isaac did run off from home, but she still adheres her Kingdom's ethics ''and'' it was per her brother thr King's request, since she had to keep Prince Shanan safe).

* ''[[Franchise/{{Atelier}} Atelier Annie]]'', along with the still-Japan-only ''Atelier Liese'' features this in [[spoiler: Liese Randel herself. It's a little different in that she actually loves her parents and they love her... however, her father is a financial idiot and has managed to get the entire kingdom into a multimillion-gold debt to a foreign bank, and if the kingdom can't pay it off, the bank will foreclose on the rights to rule the kingdom - by any means necessary. Thus Liese disguises herself and leaves home to make a fortune in a neighboring kingdom, setting ''Atelier Liese'''s action and plot into motion. She fits the other parts of the trope to a T, being a bit brash and overbearing and she did technically dodge an arranged marriage by doing this - an arrangement to the Prince of the kingdom she's now in. [[HilarityEnsues Ooops.]] ]]
** This pops up again [[spoiler: when Liese appears in ''Atelier Annie''; she's evidently given her parents, who she did manage to bail out in the last game, the flip and run off to Sera Island to participate in the development contest, ostensibly for the prize money. That may not be her only motivation for coming, though...]]

* Marle from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' also exemplifies this trope, even going so far as to use a pseudonym (her real name is Nadia).

And if the ImagineSpot of her family line is any indication, rebelliousness is InTheBlood--all of her female ancestors either married into nobility, or favored peasant clothes until they took the throne.

* Literature/AlexisCarew is effectively a duke's granddaughter by her homeworld's standards (technically non-titled gentry). She balks at the gender roles society wants to place her in, refusing to marry some asshat solely so her family's land stays in the family and instead joining the Royal Navy as a midshipman while her grandfather tries to get the agnatic primogeniture law changed. Note that these gender roles have only been legally enforced on her planet for two generations at most and the law is nationally unconstitutional (but enforcement is lax to nonexistent in the Fringe), so she's got some reason.
