* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': In ''Bart vs. Australia'', Bart's prank call to an Australian man racks up an enormous bill. He declares he's going to take up the matter with his Member of Parliament, who's right outside his house. The two of them agree to contact the Prime Minister, so they run over to a nearby pond where the PM is relaxing and shout for him.

** Luffy tends to treat ''everyone'' he meets, be it the king of a nation he just saved, an Navy admiral, or even the WorldsStrongestMan, like any old joe.

* ''Anime/DragonBall'', a RunningGag with Goku where he treats dieties with the same casual, easy-going attitude he does with everyone. It gets interesting in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' with Zeno the [[GodEmperor Omni-King]]. Everyone becomes terrified when Goku uses the same casual approach towards Zeno, considering he could [[PersonOfMassDestruction wipe-out the Multiverse in an instance]] if he wanted to. However in a twist of {{irony}}, Zeno likes Goku ''because'' he treats him casually like a normal person, rather than the ridiculous degrees of respect everyone else uses.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': While Celestia and Luna are fairly well-guarded, Twilight lives in the town library (at least until [[spoiler: said library is destroyed]]) and regularly goes about her business in Ponyville normally to the point that it's actually a pretty rare occasion when someone actually ''does'' treat her with the reverence you'd expect a princess to get. Her friends and their families in particular seem to mostly ignore the fact that she's technically royalty and treat her like anybody else. It's [[JustifiedTrope justified]] here, as most ponies already knew her before her coronation, and she's not really inclined to make them treat her differently.

* Studiously {{averted}} in ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt''. Not only is security around Emperor Nemhyr tight, but Geralt is forced to [[BatheHerAndBringHerToMe bathe and shave before being granted audience at Emhyr's request]].

* Played to a lesser extent in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime''; Link needs to sneak past extensive security just to reach Zelda, and only sees what is presumably the royal audience chamber through a window (which Zelda herself apparently has to spy through). Darunia also bars himself off until a royal messenger arrives, although he apparently has an open door policy at all other times. The Great Deku Tree seems like he's ''supposed'' to be like this, but Mido arbitrarily won't let Link through. Played straight with King Zora.
* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'', Link is able to just waltz into the mayor's office during an important town meeting, and his wife's audience room (where she just kind of assumes that he's an investigator that she sent for). There's a receptionist who seems like she's supposed to control visitors, but she seems pretty disinterested.
** The Deku Scrubs normally avert this. [[FantasticRacism They won't let humans enter their palace at all]], and even Link as a scrub is only allowed to enter because it's a special occasion.

* In ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', the kingdom of Arendelle normally had an open-door policy with its citizens, but its doors ended up being closed for several years to try to hide Princess Elsa's [[AnIcePerson ice powers]]. The plot is kick-started when the doors are opened again for Elsa's coronation ceremony.
** And the ''Anna & Elsa'' spin-off books portray Elsa as a humble, down-to-earth queen who often leaves the palace and mingles with the commoners. And that's not even mentioning [[FriendToAllLivingThings Anna]].
