* Prince Kail from ''[[Manga/AnatoliaStory Red River]]'' lives and breathes this trope to almost MartyStu levels [[spoiler:despite being the 3rd in line to the throne he eventually gets to be King]]

* %%%%% Calling someone a marty stu is not context. "lives and breathes" is a meaningless superlative.

* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' deconstructed the hell out of this trope in [[spoiler:Dios, who was once TheWisePrince but ends up as Akio, TheChessmaster and BigBad]]

* ''All'' princes in ''Anime/CodeGeass'' try their best to ''look'' like this but arguably only Ulysses really means it. Ironic, seeing how he is the heir apparent [[spoiler:and never ascends to the throne]]. The rest of the princes fall somewhere between TheEvilPrince and The AntiHero Prince.
** Except that Ulysses isn't "wise" he's more of a naive idiot, this guy thought Lelouch talking about killing the Emperor was a joke when he clearly meant it.

* Martin van Arkand in ''VideoGame/WorldsEnd'' is the crown prince and heir apparent of Vorona. He's a stern, helpful, upbeat young man who serves in military campaigns, loves his people, dotes on his little sister Vera, and questions the dark motivations of BigBad Duriken. For his trouble, he's disowned, tortured by his insane younger brother, and then kidnapped by the heroes, whom he basically has to coerce to help him out.

to:

* Kion from ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard''. He's pretty intelligent for his age, a skilled strategist and tactician, and, unlike his parents (at his age) or older sister, has a lot of respect for rules. He also doesn't mind that his sister is the heir to the throne. But deep down, he's got his own self-doubt and is troubled by the idea of ending up like [[HerosEvilPredecessor Scar]].

* Female example with the titular princess from ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda''. Kind, honorable, melancholy, and warrior. And, of course, bearer of the Triforce of Wisdom.

* King Muhammad VI of UsefulNotes/{{Morocco}} is often compared to Abdullah II. Although he's less of a democrat than Abdullah, he has been very explicit that he expects to be the last Moroccan monarch to exercise any political authority. He also initiated a truth-and-reconciliation process shortly after taking the throne to deal with his father Hassan II's notoriously brutal suppression of dissent (which had featured beatings, forced disappearances, killing in the streets, and some of the world's worst {{Hellhole Prison}}s).

He was also very graceful about responding to the Arab Spring by pushing for democratic reforms before protests got out of hand. He's still not as popular in Morocco as Abdullah is in Jordan, but he's still widely respected.

* King Abdullah II of Jordan aspires to this, and many of his people see him that way. He was pro-democratic reform before the Arab Spring, and when that came he didn't balk at transferring more power from the monarchy to representative government, only intervening in parliamentary politics when protests indicated that they weren't acting in their constituent's interests.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Jon Snow, the highborn [[HeroicBastard illegitimate son]] of Lord Eddard Stark who is looking for his purpose in life. Jon begins as a WideEyedIdealist ShelteredAristocrat raised in a [[TooHappyToLive loving family with his half-siblings]] by their [[GoodParents father]] Ned Stark but is resented by his father's wife, the mother of Jon's siblings, as Jon is the son of [[MissingMom another woman]]. After he fulfills his CallToAdventure by [[JumpedAtTheCall joining]] [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor the Night's Watch]] like his CoolUncle, Jon starts to see the world for [[CrapsackWorld what it is]] (like his siblings simultaneously do after everyone leaves home), experiences [[TraumaCongaLine its harsh realities]], and [[TheHerosJourney develops into]] one of the primary [[TheHero heroes]] in the story. Though pretty impulsive, somber and angsty, he is kind, [[HonorBeforeReason honorable]], and only wants to protect his people. He finds himself in positions of [[ReluctantRuler leadership he did not ask for]] as Lord Commander of the Night's Watch and the King in the North; does his best to make the [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight morally right]] decision; and is [[LivingLegend skilled in combat]] but doesn't enjoy killing. It is later revealed Jon ''is'' [[spoiler:a prince and the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. He is [[LostOrphanedRoyalty the hidden trueborn son]] of Crown Prince Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, Ned Stark's sister. To save Jon's life from the current ruling regime, [[TheGreatestStoryNeverTold Ned claimed his nephew Jon as his own illegitimate son to protect him]] and [[{{Nephewism}} raised Jon as his own child]].]]

--> '''Barristan:''' When your brother Rhaegar led his men at the battle of the Trident, men died for him because they believed in him. Because they loved him. I fought beside the last dragon that day, my grace.
