* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjyYiaSvJaQ In the Rankin Bass adaptation of]] TheEmperorsNewClothes, the titular Emperor has one for a daughter, who serves as the love interest of one of the tailors (who in this version are given a dose of AdaptationalHeroism). The short plays it for parody; she deludes herself into thinking that he is the hero who can save her from her father's EvilChancellor, when she is clearly the tougher of the two, [[spoiler: and she is right about that first part]].

* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'', ''Literature/TheHorseAndHisBoy'' has Aravis Tharkeena, who upgrades from a Tomboy Noblewoman to a TomboyPrincess when she [[spoiler:marries Shasta aka Crown Prince Cor.]] Lucy The Valiant is a Tomboy ''Queen'' [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak with some traces of girliness]] who is good at archery and acts like a CoolBigSis to Aravis when they meet. The femininity and [[MartialPacifist reluctance to openly fight unless it's truly needed]] are for her older, wiser and more quiet sister, [[LadyOfWar Queen Susan]] [[TheOjou the Gentle.]]

* Marle of ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''; a princess, sheltered by an over-protective father and encouraged to be a ProperLady… who runs away from home to have fun, wields a bow (and later, magic) and breaks pretty much every rule of lady-like etiquette generally. Her tomboyish actions even make her the talk of the Millennial Fair.

* ''VideoGame/Dishonored2'' allows the player to take control of Emily, the daughter of the previous empress and the previous player character. She clearly prefers sneaking around the city's rooftops over ruling it's citizens.

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'' has Princess Calla. She dislikes having to act prim and proper and would rather take part in governing and defending her kingdom. She's skilled in the use of weapons, and the episode "Girls Knight Out" has her entering and winning tournament in secret that was to determine who would be her royal protector. Even better, when King Gregor, her father, found out the truth, he was deeply impressed at what a powerful warrior his child had become.

** While she's only slightly tomboyish, Twilight Sparkle's focus on her studies is, relatively speaking, not quite as conventionally feminine as Rarity's fashion design, Fluttershy's animal care, or Pinkie Pie's catering, making her more tomboyish than average, at least as far as the main 6 characters go. She's certainly the most tomboyish of the princesses; Celestia and Cadance are each clearly shown to be acting according to the in-universe traditions of the lands they have authority over, and Luna thinks she is.

* [[UsefulNotes/HMTheQueen Elizabeth II]] seems to have had elements of this when she insisted on joining the Army during UsefulNotes/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.

* ''[[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra The Legend of Korra]]'': The eponymous heroine is the [[AmazonianBeauty amazonian]] [[TheChiefsDaughter daughter]] of Chief Tonraq, of the Southern Water Tribe. She's basically [[OneOfTheBoys one of the guys]] because she takes after her father. Meaning, she's [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower very strong]], strong willed, and believes in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFp13ogOqeE the direct approach]] when dealing with problems. Her cousin Eska, princess of the ''Northern'' Water Tribe, is a quieter, somewhat downplayed example.

* Cimorene from the ''EnchantedForestChronicles'', who tries to learn such unfeminine and un-princesslike things as magic and fencing. When her parents still try to force her into a proper marriage, she runs away to go live with a dragon… where, ironically, her duties consist largely of [[FeminineWomenCanCook cooking]] and [[StayInTheKitchen cleaning.]] OTOH, it does promote her to the status of RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething.

Invoked by her father, Gustavus Adolphus, who ordered that his sole heir be [[RaisedAsTheOppositeGender raised as a prince]], and possibly complicated by the allegations of AmbiguousGender raised at her birth.
