Added DiffLines:

* Adrienne Ashe from ''ComicBook/{{Princeless}}'' is sarcastic, direct, easily annoyed; doesn't wear pink clothes, clads herself in armor, begins sword-fighting, and questions her supposed role as a PrincessClassic.
* Princess Ulga of ''ComicBook/PrincessUgg'' loves fighting and is more of a rough barbarian compared to her much more feminine princeless classmates.

If she's an ActionGirl, chances are, you're also dealing with a PrettyPrincessPowerhouse or a BadassPrincess, making her the type to [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething get off her royal butt]], rather than [[DamselInDistress call for help.]] There also may be some overlap with RebelliousPrincess, depending on the character and the narrative.

A more moderate approach is to use the "Tomboy Princess" as a way to combine the TomboyAndGirlyGirl [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak into one character.]] Who says tomboys can't be girly? Who says girly girls can't be tomboys? This has the advantage of appealing to a lot of girls who both want to play with the boys, but also like wearing [[RequisiteRoyalRegalia tiaras]] and [[PimpedOutDress fancy dresses]] (also showing that SheCleansUpNicely). These Tomboy Princesses are usually too busy being awesome to bother with trying to teach Aesops. Although occasionally they'll have a VerySpecialEpisode to teach one. The most common pitfall for a writer with this type of Tomboy Princess is having her become [[MarySue too awesome]].

Maybe she considers a PimpedOutDress to be the princess version of the ErmineCapeEffect, and her style of everyday ModestRoyalty happens to appear quite boyish (if only by comparison).

* [[UsefulNotes/HMTheQueen Elizabeth II]] seems to have had elements of this when she insisted on joining the Army during WorldWarII and became a mechanic and truck driver. As it is, she is the ''only'' remaining head of state who is a vet of that war. Her daughter Princess Anne was an olympic-level equestrian in her youth. In eventing, no less. Anne's daughter Zara Phillips has taken up the riding as well, participating in the London Olympic Games.
