* RedemptionEqualsDeath: In the Dream version, a Princess fallen to Belief 0 is too far gone to be saved in this life. If her Belief is restored to 1, then she'll [[DyingAsYourself die peacefully in her sleep]] and [[BornAgainImmortality move on to the cycle of reincarnation]], which is probably the best she can hope for.

Averted in the Vocation version, though-a Princess who is caught early enough in the slide into irreparable despair can be [[RestoredMyFaithInHumanity talked out of it]], and from there they can reform their Phylactery-though it's not easy.

* DarkIsNotEvil: Very rare. However, there's technically nothing that prevents a good Princess from taking the Lacrima Invocation; it's a frighteningly potent tool for defending one's own Nation, and there's nothing more powerful when the GodzillaThreshold has been crossed. In addition, there are Diamonds who [[ForScience use Lacrima to study the dead and the Underworld]], with the blessing of their Queen, and take vows to never use the Invocation against mortals.

* TheCorruption: Taint, the metaphysical presence of the All-Consuming Darkness - it can infest locations where evils great or mundane are committed, and can infect people who stay in it too long. The Darkened develop, among other things, VillainTeleportation and the ability to draw power from the pain of other people - and their moral compass inverts, making their[[FatalFlaw Vice]] worth far more emotionally rewarding than their Virtue (i.e. indulging it restores all Willpower points rather than just one). Those who lose further [[SanityMeter Integrity]] will often develop [[LovecraftianSuperpower Umbrae]] as the Darkness warps them physically. A Darkened who hits Integrity 0 with at least one Umbra dies in their sleep and becomes a [[TheHeartless Darkspawn]], a monster whose only impulse is to serve the Dark. Darkened who hit zero ''without'' ever acquiring an Umbra (usually having been unstable or immoral before they became Tainted) become Mnemosyne, which retain their bodies and intellects [[HumanoidAbomination and nothing else]].

* TheCorruption: Taint, the metaphysical presence of the All-Consuming Darkness - it can infest locations where great evil was committed, and it can infect people who stay around it too long. The Darkened develop, among other things, VillainTeleportation and the ability to draw power from the pain of other people - and their moral compass inverts, so that their [[FatalFlaw Vice]] is worth far more emotionally than their Virtue (ie, it refills all Willpower rather than just refresh a point). Those who drop in [[KarmaMeter Morality]] (often by learning Caligines, the mystical arts of Darkness) without developing a derangement get Umbrae, mutations that enhance physical and supernatural ability at the cost of sanity and social ability. A Darkened with Umbrae who hits Morality 0 dies and becomes a [[TheHeartless Darkspawn]], a monster whose only impulse is to serve the Dark...which is far better than those who ''don't'' have Umbrae, who become Mnemosyne who retain their bodies and intellects...

* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Pentacles Practical Magic plays this straight. A Princess may spend a wisp and turn one of her Aspirations, Dreams or Vocation into a Destiny. She selects how she's going to fulfill it and she gains bonuses whenever she acts in favor of her Destiny. However, she also receives Penalties whenever she tries any other ways to fulfill it! For example, if the Princess wanted to "Arrest Al Capone for the murder of Luigi", she's shut herself off from all attempts to "arrest Al Capone for Tax Evasion".

* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Pentacles Practical Magic plays Mirrors' philosophy, appropriately, is a twisted version of this. The True Heir will be chosen by destiny, and Princesses of Mirrors all believe that they're the one. Except that in this straight. A case, the alleged destiny is just a delusion, and no Princess may spend a wisp and turn one of her Aspirations, Dreams or Vocation into a Destiny. She selects how she's going to fulfill it and she gains bonuses whenever she acts in favor of her Destiny. However, she also receives Penalties whenever she tries any other ways to fulfill it! For example, if Mirrors is the Princess wanted to "Arrest Al Capone for the murder of Luigi", she's shut herself off from all attempts to "arrest Al Capone for Tax Evasion".True Heir because there is no such thing.
