This is not the place for editorializing about Anita Sarkeesian
* In ''VideoGame/SonicCD'', Sonic's mission is to save Amy from Dr. Robotnik and Metal Sonic. Many feminist writers like Anita Sarkeesian have lumped Amy in with other well-known gaming damsels-in-distress, not realizing (or choosing to ignore) that she actually hasn't needed to be saved in any other games in the series, besides one part of ''VideoGame/SonicRiders: Zero Gravity''. In fact, she's much more often been a playable character, sometimes saving others.

The Presidents Daughter is no longer a trope.
* ''VideoGame/TimeCrisis'' has ThePresidentsDaughter as a hostage of the bad guys who must be rescued.

* The goal of ''[[AntarcticAdventure Penguin Adventure]]'' is to find a golden apple to restore the health of the penguin princess. Because of GuideDangIt, it's easier to get the bad ending in which she dies.

YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle can also be a part of these games. Occasionally, the damsel [[DecoyDamsel might not be genuinely innocent]]... Once in a rare while, the villain will decide to HypnotizeThePrincess and [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe marry her]].

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/ForTheFrogTheBellTolls''. Initially played straight when the protagonist hears that Princess Tiramisu has been kidnapped by Delarin. [[spoiler:However, it becomes apparent later in the game that no one really knows where she is. At the end of the game, Mandola, the witch who had turned everyone into frogs, reveals herself to be Tiramisu.]]

** Somewhat gender inverted in the fact that Gil is a prince and Ki is apparently a commoner.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTriforceHeroes'' parodies the trope utterly in that, while Princess Styla is in fact safe in her own castle, the peril she has to be saved from is a cursed onesie that she is stuck in. [[DenserAndWackier Yeah...]]
