* [[spoiler: Blake]] from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', the daughter of the chieftain of [[spoiler:Menagerie]]. However, it's a much more civilized society than most uses of this trope. Instead of violent attacks, [[spoiler:Sun is subject to intimidation but is still allowed to say.]] But her father is still ''very'' vocal about how he feels about the friendship.
** And Kali, her mother, ''likes'' him regardless of his awkward antics.

* 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 SmugSuper 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]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheDaughterOfDawn'' is an unusual example of this trope in that the chief's daughter actually falls in love with another member of the tribe, not MightyWhitey. It's an all-Native American cast.

* [[{{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.

* 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]].
