* [[{{Reconstruction}} Reconstructed]] with Dhalua from ''Comicbook/TomStrong''. Tom was RaisedByNatives on an African island, and eventually marries the chief's daughter. The reconstruction comes in because Tom speaks the language and is part of the tribe, and because he and Dhalua grew up together.

Also notable for averting ButNotTooBlack- Dhalua is dark-skinned African and looks so.

* The title character of Disney's ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' is the daughter of the chief of her village, but the film subverts this trope in a few ways, not the least of which is having no love interest for Moana. The [[Smug Super]] is frankly surprised that she doesn't just bow down to him, and later, [[spoiler:she realizes that his ego is a way to break down his arguments against helping, but plays it as he would be a hero to everyone, not her hero]].

* Parodied in an episode of WesternAnimation/BackAtTheBarnyard'', wherein the elderly hound Everett is trying to remember the combination to his Franchise/IndianaJones expy owner's safe so that Otis and the other animals can find out what's inside. To do this, Everett recollects everything he can about his adventures with his owner so that the animals can act it out and jog his memory. Apparently, a lot of these involved his owner wooing a chief's daughter and being forced to marry her. Quote Everett, "he was a [[ChickMagnet chief's daughter magnet]]!" [[spoiler:Becomes a BrickJoke when Everett's owner turns out to be the contents of the safe and as the two walk off into the sunset he asks Everett if there are "any chief's daughters around here", to which Everett snarks "the next county's swarming with 'em!"]]

Even in DarkestAfrica, InjunCountry, or the land of {{Wild Samoan}}s, EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses. The Chief's daughter, in her FurBikini or BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins, is often the first to befriend MightyWhitey during his visit to the strange new land. She'll conveniently be [[NubileSavage beautiful by Western standards]], but with [[ButNotTooBlack just enough racial traits to be exotic]], and will be a NobleSavage in contrast to the amoral BarbarianTribe of HollywoodNatives. To show that she is native, gentle, and CloserToEarth, the wild forest animals [[FriendToAllLivingThings will flock to her]].

Many a story will have the Chief offer the hero his daughter's hand in marriage, but this is often unnecessary. Just like [[MightyWhiteyAndMellowYellow Asian women in fiction]], she'll be irresistably drawn to the (usually white) hero, to the point that other suitors within her tribe might as well not even bother. Sometimes this trope can be played for laughs by having the girl be ForbiddenFruit to the hero, so when it's found out that he's been getting a little too friendly with her, the rest of her tribe ('''[[UnstoppableRage especially]]''' [[OverprotectiveDad Daddy]]) will be less than pleased and [[ChasedByAngryNatives go for the spears]].

* [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] with Val in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', the sister-in-law to Mance Rayder, the King-Beyond-The-Wall. Members of Stannis Baratheon's court regard her as a "wildling princess," despite the fact the the Free Folk have no concept of RoyalBlood, and Val's relation to Mance doesn't affect her own status at all. Attempts to convince the southern nobles that an ArrangedMarriage is incompatible with the wildlings AsskickingEqualsAuthority approach end in failure. The trope is also {{exploited}} -- if some nobles want to believe that her hand is a valuable prize, Stannis is perfectly happy to let them compete for it.
