* Writing at a time when monarchs were expected to actually run things and lead in battle, and when they'd also recognized the PR benefits of seeming competent and smart, Creator/WilliamShakespeare routinely gives us very active and sometimes competent monarchs. Indeed, kings in his plays who seek to duck out of their practical responsibilities, such as Theatre/KingLear or Theatre/HenryVI, may well trigger chaos and tragedy.

** In ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E24EquestriaGames Equestria Games]]'', when the cloud falls, Celestia and Luna are seen entering the fray like all the pegasi. This [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/mlp/images/c/cd/Celestia_and_Luna_flying_up_to_ice_cloud_S4E24.png picture]] proves it. Twilight (attending the games in a royal capacity, complete with crown) is also about to lend assistance, but Spike makes his move before she can act.

* ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'' has Princess Allura, she acts as the BigGood and MissionControl of the team. While she is not a pilot like the Paladins, she hardly stays sat down on her throne: she works with Coran to re-organize and re-build the castle and it's mechanisms, she works to start an intergalactic alliance against Garla, is a perfectly capable fighter capable of opening a steel door with her bare hands, and has enough power to [[spoiler: bring an almost dead animal of the size of a small planet back to life.]] So, you have to add that to BadassPrincess, bordering MessianicArchetype sometimes.

** [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E25TwilightsKingdomPart1 Twilights Kingdom Part 1]]''. Twilight spends most of the episode lamenting how she hasn't been given much to do as a princess other than "smile an wave" and unfurl a banner for some visiting dignitaries, and is especially distraught when Celestia tasks Discord over her with tracking down the escapee from Tartarus. Twilight is finally given a role at the [[{{Cliffhanger}} end of the episode]] when the other princesses inform her that [[WhamLine they must rid themselves of their magic]] to protect it from Tirek.

** [[BadassPrincess Princess]] [[LadyOfWar Cornelia]] is certainly one of the most prominent examples of this in the series. [[AcePilot An extraordinarily skilled Knightmare pilot on par with several of the main cast,]] and [[TheStrategist a very experienced and successful battle strategist.]] Two of her [[EstablishingCharacterMoment Establishing Character Moments]] are 1. taking out an army of HumongousMecha almost single-handedly, and 2. finding and storming a terrorist base, spearheading the operation herself. She is good enough to beat ''[[MagnificentBastard Lelouch]]'' in early episodes, and can still give him some serious headaches later on.
*** [[SarcasmMode As if she needed more badassery,]] she is shown to be very intelligent. Perhaps not to the extent of Lelouch and [[spoiler:Schneizel]], but she is able to efficiently run an entire country, garner intense loyalty and respect from her subjects, and is very skilled in predicting how other people will act [[NotSoDifferent very similarly to how Lelouch can.]] A skilled politician, strategist, and warrior: certainly a shining example of this trope.
