!!This series contains examples of the following tropes:

* ActionGirl: All the princesses, but Roxanne takes the cake.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The girls. Their parents...less so.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Surprisingly enough, ''not'' inverted, though it seems that way at first glance. The colors refer to the personality types of each girl, using the FourElementEnsemble in reference to the Four Seasons: Demetra, Winter/Air; Roxanne, Fire/Autumn; Sabrina, Water/Spring; Emily, Earth/Summer. This also appears in their kingdoms, which are eternally in their 'season'.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: The books, mostly. They look pretty dumb and glittery, but they've got a few levels that you have to think to catch, such as the FourElementEnsemble of the girls.
* DarkMagicalGirl: Lord Bleak's daughter. Demetra and Roxanne run the risk of this when they're older, depending on whether or not they have natural, latent magic.
* TheDitz: Emily comes off as this.
* ImprobableAge: These girls are ''10 years old''. They're not old enough to clean their rooms. Why are they running the kingdom? (And from the looks of the maps, it really is the ''whole'' kingdom.)
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Father Like Daughter]]: Lord Bleak's daughter.
* MeaningfulName: ''Rox''anne rules the Ruby ''Mountains''. King ''Regal'' and Queen ''Jemma'' are obvious. Lord ''Bleak'' rules a barren, dying country.
* ParentalAbandonment: Where the hell ''are'' those guys? We see them in the first book, and that's it.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Supposedly everyone, and the girls ''are'' mature for their ages, but the question of [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers who in their right minds lets kids become heroes]] is a big one.
* ShrinkingViolet: Played straight with Sabrina, averted in Roxanne.
* WinterRoyalLady: Demetra.
