->''"Make it pink!"''
-->-- '''Flora''', ''Disney/SleepingBeauty''

In fiction, odds are that [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses royal princess]] will have a pink dress or outfit [[ErmineCapeEffect she wears most of the time]], or at least prominently. It could be anything from a [[ModestRoyalty simple frock]] to a PimpedOutDress.

Some parameters for this trope:
* If the pink is barely noticeable on the outfit, it doesn't count. A significant part of it has to be pink. It could be the skirt or the bodice is almost all pink, or there is a lot of pink trimming on almost every part.
* Pink hair and makeup alone don't count (they can be included though).
* Jewelry can count, as long as it's obvious that it's pink, without requiring a closeup.
* It has to be an actual princess to fit this trope, by birth, marriage, adoption, etc.. This can include [[PrincessPhase fantasies of being a princess]] (as long as [[ImagineSpot we see the fantasy]]) or someone playing one in a show, play, or something else. If it's just a woman or girl in a lovely pink dress, with no mention of royalty it's PinkMeansFeminine.

The probability for wearing pink does get higher for a PrincessClassic, and lower for a LadyOfWar or [[DaddysLittleVillain an evil princess]]. Also a WinterRoyalLady wouldn't wear pink as a princess, since that's obviously not a winter color. Many princess-related toys will likely be pink as part of the PinkProductPloy. If the princess that prefers pink is also a BadassPrincess then you've got yourself a GirlyBruiser.

As a little point of interest, it should be noted that [[NewerThanTheyThink actual princesses of old were more likely to wear blue]]. This was because pink was considered a masculine colour until after WorldWarII, due to it being a shade of red.

A SubTrope of PinkMeansFeminine.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Lacus Clyne is nicknamed "Pink Princess" in ''GundamSEED'' for her clothing habits.
** Relena from ''GundamWing'' wears pink somewhat often, but the [[YaoiFangirl crowd]] that [[DieForOurShip doesn't like her]] tends to [[RealWomenNeverWearDresses treat this like a bad thing]].
** Also applies to some of the mechas in ''Gundam SEED'': Cagalli's Strike Rouge is the Strike Gundam colored pink, and Meer's pink ZAKU, called "Zaku Warrior Live Concert Version", though it was only used as a stage prop for one of her concerts, and never pilots it herself.
** The standard female outfit of the Earth Federation in the original Anime/MobileSuitGundam is pink. One of the girls wearing said outfit, [[spoiler:Sayla Mass]], happens to be a princess(Sorta, considering [[spoiler:the Zabi family userping Zeon and everything]].
* Princess Allura/Fala from ''Anime/{{Voltron}}''/''Anime/GoLion'', whether it's her [[PimpedOutDress grand dress]], jumpsuit, swim suit, or pilot uniform. She wears blue in the sequels, however, to match her Lion.
** Amue wears a pink MiniDressOfPower in the climactic battle.
* In ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'', Princess Amelia's most often-worn dress for diplomatic duties is a frilly pink one, and she's seen wearing it in several episodes of the anime and in supplementary materials. Her regular traveling outfit also has pink touches on it.
* Rare Eastern-stylized example: Konoka from ''MahouSenseiNegima'' during her princess moments often wears a pink ''kimono''.
* Lucia, the main character of ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch''.
* Fine, one of the two titular princesses of ''Anime/FushigiboshiNoFutagoHime''.
* In ''Franchise/SailorMoon'':
** It's generally assumed that while Usagi's image is associated with silver and white, all of her powers in the [[Anime/SailorMoon first anime]] result in huge pink blasts of light (if they aren't moon-shaped or rainbows), including her transformation sequences up until Eternal -- she's pink on the inside.
** Chibi-Usa in wears a pink sailor senshi costume and has pink hair. As the daughter of the future queen, she's by definition a princess. Her princess dress in the first anime is white and identical to her mother's, but the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] has her break away from her mother and fall into this trope, with a pink cherry-blossom-evoking dress instead.
* Nia Teppelin from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' starts wearing a pink, princess-y dress with golden shoulder armor, then goes on to have a pink hoodie, and a pink, one piece dress after the timeskip.
* May Chang from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' is a a Xingese princess and wear a mainly pink outfit.
* ''KyouKaraMaou'': Wolfram, 'nuff said. That pink, frilly nightgown seems to be a major favorite of his.
* In ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', Mimi wears a pink dress when she is posing as a princess for a Gekomon kingdom.
** And so does Palmon!
* Cornelia and Euphemia in ''Anime/CodeGeass'' both tend to wear pink.
** It helps that they both have hair in different shades of pink.
** Don't forget Nunnally, who also has a (very) pink dress.
* Most of the princesses and other leading ladies in ''Grimm's Fairy Tale Classics'' have at least some pink in their outfits. It's easier to list the exceptions: Snow White from "Snow White and Rose Red" (in her case it's because Rose Red is already wearing pink), Lisbeth from "The Magic Heart", and the princess from "The Iron Stove", who all wear green, and Allerleirauh from "The Coat of Many Colours", who has purple, yellow, blue, white, and red dresses, but not pink.
* Even though she doesn't live as one, [[ProjectAKo C-ko]] is an alien princess who wears pink often.
* The princess of the low budget Korean ''MazingerZ'' knock-off ''ProtectorsOfUniverse'' (sic).
* Princess Millhiore F. Biscotti of ''DogDays'', so much she should provide the page picture. Her hair is pink. Her eyes are pink. Her [[KemonoMimi ears and tail]] are pink. Naturally, her dress is pink. She's pinker than the color pink itself.
* Actually averted with Ako Shirabe/Cure Muse of ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'' and Hime Shirayuki/Cure Princess of ''Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure'' as they go with gold and blue respectively. Hikari Kujou/Shiny Luminous of ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureMaxHeart'' is hard to actually say, really, due to her circumstances.

[[folder:Board Games]]
* Aside from the Disney-branded versions, most versions of ''Pretty Pretty Princess'' show a princess wearing pink. And yes, the ''Sleeping Beauty'' version shows the pink dress.
* Some versions of ''CandyLand'' depict Princess Lolly as wearing pink; even the ones that don't almost always show her as having pink ''hair''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fanfiction]]
* Princess Lotora from [[http://fanfiction.wikia.com/wiki/Hottie_3:_The_Best_Fan_Fic_in_the_World Hottie 3: The Best Fan Fic in the World]] is a villainous example.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'': Aurora's dress ends up in some color war in the movie, but in TheMerch for the {{Disney Princess}}es, it's usually pink. This is most likely to distinguish her from ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'', another blonde with a blue iconic dress. (Cinderella's dress in the movie is white and silver, but blue worked better for the [[ColourCodedCharacters colour-coding]]). Many of the older fans prefer the blue it is for the majority of the movie. Occasionally it is colored purple in TheMerch, but that's unlikely to happen anymore with [[Disney/{{Tangled}} Rapunzel]] prancing around with a purple dress and long, blonde hair.
* Ariel in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' wears [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ariel_pink_dress_9936.jpg a pink dress]]. She also has a pink nightgown.
** Melody wears a pink dress in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidIIReturnToTheSea'', and her mermaid tail is a shade of pink.
* One of Belle's dresses in ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' is pink, the one that goes with [[PrettyInMink fur-trimmed]] [[PimpedOutCape red cape]].
* Even Giselle's dress in the Mucha-esque opening sequence of ''{{Enchanted}}'' is pink, and in the "real world," she does craft herself a pink dress.
* Charlotte, the princess-wannabe of ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' wears pink ''[[InvokedTrope because]]'' of this trope.
* Rapunzel from ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' primarily wears a lavender dress as her main outfit, but at the end of the film, she wears a rose-pink dress.
* Princess Irene, in the animated ''ThePrincessAndTheGoblin'', wears a dark pink dress.
* Maid Marian, in the animated ''Disney/RobinHood'', wears pink. She's not technically identified as a princess, but in this version she is stated to be the King's niece, so it's more or less implied.
* Eilonwy from ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron''.
* ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'' and her [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/368008_1264809845773_full_4091.jpg very first ball gown]], made by mice and birds.
* {{WesternAnimation/Anastasia}} is seen wearing pink pajamas after her reunion with her grandmother. One of her outfits during the "Paris Holds the Key to Your Heart" sequence is also pink.
* Anna in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' wears a pink/magenta-ish cap and winter cape for a majority of the film.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live Action]]
* After Buttercup becomes ''Film/ThePrincessBride'', she is seen wearing five different dresses, one of which is full-on pink; another is a sort of peachy-pink.
* Paige from ''Film/ThePrinceAndMe''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Princess Allriane Cett of ''Literature/MistbornTheOriginalTrilogy'' not only generally does wear pink, but emits such a powerful aura of girliness that her clothes appear pink even when they're really not.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* In Disney's ''Film/PrincessProtectionProgram'', the Princess requests a pink silk nightgown, and a pink gown she wears at one point is actually a plot point.
* Ahim de Famille in ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' takes this a step further; she's a former princess who serves as this season's Pink Ranger.
** She wouldn't be the first [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Pink Ranger Princess]], though. Mei from ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'' is the princess of the Risha tribe.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Toys]]
* {{Franchise/Barbie}} is largely an aversion to this when it comes to the dolls. Despite all the pink associated with her normally, when there is a ''princess'' doll, her clothes are rarely pink. The films are a different matter though.
** Anneliese, of ''WesternAnimation/BarbieInThePrincessAndThePauper'' wears a pink dress.
** In ''WesternAnimation/BarbieAndTheDiamondCastle'', her character Liana has a fuchsia dress after her princess upgrade.
** Ro's dress in ''WesternAnimation/BarbieAsTheIslandPrincess'' is mostly blue, but has a pink overskirt, and the [[FluffyFashionFeathers feathers]] on the [[PeacockGirl peacock tail]] are mostly pink.
* In ''WesternAnimation/BarbieInTheTwelveDancingPrincesses'', Genevieve and Fallon wear pink dresses.
* While not ''officially'' a Princess (though she might as well be; she rules her country by birthright and.. um... hair right... and doesn't seem to have parents), LadyLovelyLocks is just about the most frilly pink girls' toy there was in the 80s. It was, in fact, her signature color, with her two handmaidens generally being characterized with blue and yellow, and the antagonist of her various stories, Duchess Ravenwaves, with purple.
* Princess Celestia in the current MyLittlePony line is usually pink, although her character in the TV show is clearly white (albeit with a pale pink outline). This is apparently because Hasbro thinks girls will only buy the toy if it's pink. The [[PeripheryDemographic fandom]] was less than pleased, and it wasn't until a few years later that a white Celestia toy was released. Naturally, right around the same time, Princess Cadance, who ''is'' pink in the show, was introduced, so the toyline still has a pink princess.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Peach from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' onward. And the official art for the first game.
* Zelda wears a pink dress in ''VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink'', something which is made more clear in the [[AllThereInTheManual instruction booklet]] than the game itself. Judging by some of the promo art from [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda the original]], her dress there may have also been pink, although its in-game color is whatever color Link is wearing. In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' her dress was mostly pink, and subsequent games in the series usually have her wear a gown with pink accents.
** Zelda wears blue in the original release of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'', as shown in the manual and promo art; the actual in-game sprite appears dressed in more of an off-white. However, her updated pink dress in the GBA remake is an exact copy of what she wore in the Japanese box art of the [[OlderThanTheyThink original SNES release]]. Just [[http://www.zeldawiki.org/File:Princess_Zelda_ALttP.png compare]] [[http://www.zeldawiki.org/File:Link_To_The_Past_Remake_-_Princess_Zelda.png them]].
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'', being possessed by Zelda causes a Phantom to turn pinkish-grey, instead of its normal grey.
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', this is played with: At first, Zelda is a regular citizen who just happens to wear pink, but she dons a white dress and brown, high-laced sandals when Link meets her again after TheReveal.
* For bonus points, ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' features both Peach ''and'' Zelda in their pink dresses (although the latter has it as an alternate costume in ''Brawl'').
* The 16th main installment of the ''{{beatmania}} IIDX'' series is subtitled "Empress." It has a very, very pink user interface.j
* Even in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', Yukiko's shadow is a pink-wearing princess.
* Estelle from ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia''.
* ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' has the ShowWithinAShow ''Pink Princess''.
* The red team's ''VideoGame/FatPrincess'' prefers pink. The blue team's princess prefers baby blue.
* Princess Kara of ''IllusionOfGaia''
* Played with with [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Remilia Scarlet]] in VideoGame/{{Touhou}}; '''1.''' She's not a princess, however, there are several noble or royalty motifs to her (her theme is called "Septette For The Dead Princess/Queen", she is called [[RedBaron "The Queen/Empress Of The Night"]], she owns a mansion that is BiggerOnTheInside, has hundreds if not thousands of Fairy servants, often displays a remarkable, charismatic facade whenever she's not being a BrattyHalfPint in personality, and '''2.''' Her dresses ''used'' to be white. They became pink after she spilled enough blood on her dresses to stain them too much for them to ever become white again. This is because she has, surprisingly for such a powerful vampire, little appetite for blood and is also a messy eater. However, this quirk is responsible for spawning her ''other'', best known title: ''[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Scarlet Devil]].''
* Alyssa from ''{{Gungnir}}'', otherwise known as Princess Alessandra Dlacroa, dresses mostly in pink and red and wields a giant lance covered in big pink roses.
* One of the unlockable characters in ''VideoGame/RaymanOrigins'' is a Teensy Princess. Not only is her dress pink, but her ''crown'' is pink as well!
* Princess Sophia wears a dark pink gown, with black accents and (later) a white cape, all throughout the ''{{VideoGame/Awakening}}'' series.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'', Krile's job class outfits tend to feature this color more prominently than the others (even PrincessClassic Lenna). Her knight's armor is ''completely'' pink.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''LastRes0rt'''s HRH Adharia doesn't just ''prefer'' pink, she ''is'' pink -- well, all the fur except her mane is, anyway.
** Her preferred color in clothing actually seems to be purple/lavender. Of course, given her fur, this may just be a way of avoiding [[TastesLikeDiabetes pink overload]].
* Speaking of which, there's also a pink-furred queen in ''DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'', who specifically says [[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Vol_145.php she does not need to get any pinker.]]
* The aptly-named Princess from ''Castleveina RPG'' has a pink dress as her standard adventuring gear. This is lampshaded later in the comic when in a side panel she meets Princess Zelda (disguised as Sheik) and learns to transform into her other outfit (a green commando-esque outfit dubbed "Metal Gear Princess" by the creator) and back.
-->'''Princess:''' I have this great pink dress...\\
'''Sheik:''' Of course you do. It comes with the territory.
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has Zola, [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070427 who appears to be trying to deliberately invoke this trope]]. Even her airship is [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070507 pink]]... ''[[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070511 very pink]]''. Doubles as a subversion since Zola is an impostor and the real princess doesn't wear pink. This rather [[BerserkButton pushed her into bouts of cold seething]] and inventing for "[[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20090417 miss pinkie psycho pants]]" new epithets, each including the "pink" part. Even her DeathRay, both the gun and the actual ray, are pink.
* Silvia from ''[[http://www.goldcoincomics.com Gold Coin Comics]]''.
* The Elven Princess from [[http://xawu.thecomicseries.com/comics/17/ Xawu]]
* Firmly [[AvertedTrope averted]], possibly even [[InvertedTrope inverted]] in ''Webcomic/TheFourth''. Princess Veronika never where's pink, she's a RedheadInGreen. Lord Skärva [[GenreSavvy setx up a room in his castle]] for her since he kidnaps her quite a bit. Her reaction to being locked in it is [[http://thefourthcomic.com/?comic=a-little-birdie-told-her "Ugh. So much pink"]]. Hard to say if she hates all pink or if it's because, in this case, Lord Skärva [[UpToEleven dialed it up to eleven]].
* Before [[BreakTheCutie becomming]] [[RebelliousPrincess what she is today]], Ame from ''HeartCore'' wore a pink dress that suited her hair nicley.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* The princess from ''WesternAnimation/TheCareBearsAdventureInWonderland'' has a pink dress (save for purple trim and [[SymbolMotifClothing several white hearts]]), and [[RequisiteRoyalRegalia pink cape]] (save for [[PrettyInMink white ermine trim]] and a red heart clasp).
* Aelita of ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' is often argued to be the "princess" of Lyoko, to the extent of it being her official nickname. And she does have quite a thing for pink. To the point of having a pink cell phone and a pink laptop. Oh, and ''pink hair''.
* Princess Peregrine of the ''WesternAnimation/StormHawks'' episode "Royal Twist".
* While the real Princess Yue in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' averts this (she wears purple), [[LampshadeHanging the Ember Island Players]] rendition plays it straight.
* [[EmperorScientist Princess Bubblegum]] from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' is actually [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin part human, part bubble-gum]], so not only is her dress pink, but ''everything'' is, right down to her skin and hair. {{Averted}}, however, with most of the other princesses.
* Princess Lana on ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'' wears a pink ensemble as her everyday outfit.
* Zelda, in the AnimatedAdaptation of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda'', normally averts this trope, as her day-to-day garments are mostly blue and brown; however, in the first episode, she's seen wearing a pink nightgown. In the water park episode, she wears a pink bathing suit. Spryte, the FairyCompanion who is also a princess, plays the trope ramrod straight and wears pink all the time.
* Piggy, on ''MuppetBabies'', lives and breathes this trope. Not only is her everyday outfit pink (as is she, being a pig), but whenever she plays "Princess Piggy" as part of the babies' big imagination project of the episode, she's decked out in full pink PrincessClassic costume. (The only princessy exception was the ''StarWars'' spoof, in which she was dressed like Princess Leia).
* Gwenevere on ''PrincessGwenevereAndTheJewelRiders''.
* Princess Paw Paw of the ''PawPawBears''.
* Princess Celestia in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is a very light shade of pink, closer to white. More prominent in her toy versions. Averted by Princess Luna, whose colour-scheme consists of blues and purples, and played straight by Princess Cadance (introduced in the Season 2 finale), [[UpToEleven whose body and part of her mane are both pink]]. Though Twilight Sparkle is mostly purple, she has magenta magic and wears a coral pink dress upon her coronation.
* In a 90s ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' episode, Jubilee is telling a FairyTale with [[UniversalAdaptorCast many of the characters in the show]], including Scott as a prince and Jean as his princess, and she did wear some pink (but mostly purple).
* ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'': A [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Fairy-tale_princess princess]] in [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Nightmare_Planet Daniel's dream world]] wears a pink medieval-like outfit.
* In the episode of ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' in which Brittany had a Cinderella dream, her PimpedOutDress at the ball was all sorts of pink.
* Princess Savina from the ''ComicBook/JohanAndPeewit'' episodes of ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' wears pink as part of her royal dress.
* Ella from the ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Pahkitew Island'' segment of season 5 wears a pink dress.
