[[caption-width-right:350:[[BabyTalk Awwww, look at da fat liddle princess pwincess! Isn't she adowwable? (*pinches cheeks*)]] ]]

A hybrid RealTimeStrategy-ActionGame for the {{PlayStation 3}}.

''Fat Princess'' does away with the omniscient commander usually found in the RTS genre. Instead each of up to 32 players play as individual soldiers in the Red or Blue armies. Players choose classes by putting on hats that spawn in the teams' castles or drop from dead enemies.

The six classes:
* '''[[FragileSpeedster Villager]]''' - The starting class. Has a bare-handed attack which does little damage and has a minor stun effect, and can knock items (or the princess) out of enemy hands. Has no hat and the fastest running speed.
* '''[[MightyGlacier Warrior]]''' - The basic melee attacker. Attacks with a sword and can use a shield to block enemy attacks. Wears a big horned helmet and has the slowest running speed.
** Gains a spear with a flying charge attack and an even bigger helmet when upgraded.
* '''[[GlassCannon Ranger]]''' - The basic ranged attacker. Attacks with a bow. Wears the classic Robin Hood/William Tell cap.
** Gains a blunderbuss and a feather for his hat when upgraded.
** When upgraded, torches around the base will be lit, giving a fire upgrade to any class who touches it for a short time.
* '''[[WeakButSkilled Worker]]''' - The worker unit. Carries an axe that can be used for melee attacks, or to harvest resources for castle upgrades. Wears a bandanna.
** Gains a factory worker's cap and the ability to throw bombs when upgraded.
*** When upgraded, the worker's hat machine will also produce larger, more devastating bombs that can be picked up by anyone.
* '''[[SquishyWizard Mage]]''' - Casts fire magic that causes damage over time. Can cast single bolts at a distance, or charge up for a multi-target burst centered on the caster. Wears a [[RobeAndWizardHat Wizard Hat]], of course.
** When upgraded, the Mage can also cast Ice magic, which does less damage and freezes enemies in their place.
*** The Mage's upgraded hat machine will also produce magic potions, which when thrown will turn anyone in the blast radius into a chicken. Potions can also be used by any class.
* '''[[TheMedic Priest]]''' - Can cast healing magic in the same manner as the wizards spells, or make a weak melee attack with his staff. Wears a priest's miter.
** Upgrades to the Dark Priest, who can drain enemy health.

And in the new Downloadable Content, 3 more classes were added. These include:

* '''{{Ninja}}''' - Attacks with a sword and can throw shurikens. Can also turn invisible, enabling the Ninja to walk through castle doors and kill opponents in one hit if the Ninja is behind the enemy..

* '''[[OurGiantsAreBigger Giant]]''' - The MightyGlacier of the game. Can cause a huge amount of destruction but cannot heal itself by standing still and cannot pick up the princess. The only way for the Giant to heal itself is to [[JustEatHim eat an enemy!]]

* '''{{Pirate}}''' - Carries a cutlass and a gun into battle. The Pirate can also fire a cannonball from...[[{{Hammerspace}} somewhere in front of him]], causing great amount of damage to enemies and castle doors alike.

The main game mode "Rescue the Princess" plays like a classic CaptureTheFlag match. Each team starts with the enemy princess captive in their castle. To win the match, the Princess must be rescued and returned to her castle's throne room, while keeping the enemy princess safely imprisoned. You can hamper the enemy's rescue efforts by picking up cakes that spawn around them map and feeding them to the captive Princess. This turns her into a well... [[TitleDrop Fat Princess]] that takes more players to move.

On April 26, 2012, the title princess was announced as a playable character in ''VideoGame/PlayStationAllStarsBattleRoyale'', aided by the classes.

!Fat Tropes
* AdiposeRex: [[CaptainObvious Duh.]] Not quite a queen, but she... um... [[{{Pun}} fits]] the trope anyway.
* AscendedMeme: "They're in Our Base! Killing our Dudes!"
** Not to mention 99% of the Trophy names.
* AwesomeButImpractical:Villagers are the fastest class, and can easily get into the enemy base, take the princess, and get back to their throne before anyone knows what's going on...if they're not smarter than the computer. If they spot you...well, let's hope you can use your speed to your advantage, cause those two hearts won't do much for your survival.
* BalloonBelly: Fattening up the princess makes it harder for the opposing army to move her.
* BigEater: the princesses ''want'' to be fed whole slices of cake every few minutes and will messily eat everything given to them no matter how full and fat they already are.
* BloodSport: Fat Princess Soccer, anyone?
* BoringButPractical: The workers. Gathers materials, builds very useful structures and upgrades, can hold their own with an axe, are very fast, can destroy gates easily, when upgraded and destroy them even EASIER with bombs AND can take out large groups of enemies with said bombs, and the worker building starts producing bigger bombs for any teammate to use to destroy structures/deal lots of splash damage. Likely the only class you'll be playing as in the single player campaign.
* CaptureTheFlag: Rescue The Princess!
* CelShading
* CherryBomb: The upgraded Worker's Weapon.
* ConvectionSchmonvection: Levels on top of active volcanoes
* [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Everything's Fatter With Princesses]]
* DeathOfAThousandCuts: While a single chicken is more of an annoyance than a threat, turning multiple enemies into chickens without any backup can get you pecked to death pretty quickly.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Seriously, ''Fat Princess''? When that was first seen included among a list of Sony-published games a few E3s ago, it got a lot of attention.
* FourFingeredHands: Except in the Japanese release. See that trope's entry for why.
* GrotesqueCute: Cartoonish cel-shaded graphics... oh god! The blood! The blood!
* HairOfGold
* HeavyVoice: The voices of the titular princesses change as they get heavier.
* MagicPants: The princesses' dresses, [[PimpedOutDress no matter how fancy]], grow and shrink with the princesses.
* MiniGameCredits: Wherein you slaughter the developers' avatars with a scythe [[CrossesTheLineTwice to the tune of "Baby Got Back".]]
* NiceHat: You're just a powerless Villager without one.
* PrincessesPreferPink: Except for Blue Team's Princess, who prefers [[TrueBlueFemininity baby blue]].
* RealSongThemeTune: "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-lot, of course.
* RegeneratingHealth: Stay still for a while and you pull out a piece of cake to eat.
* SaveThePrincess: The very concept of the game turns this into a clear example of a ZigZaggingTrope.
* ShootTheMedicFirst: You'd be surprised how many times the princess will be rescued in this game simply because the defending team don't do precisely this.
* ShoutOut:
** One of the audio taunts is "[[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Frakking Toasters]]!"
** Another audio taunt is "I'm gonna leave in you bits like the Ice Truck Killer!" which is a reference to Dexter.
** The trophy for finishing the single player campaign is "[[VideoGame/{{Portal}} The Cake Is Not A Lie.]]"
** One of the loadscreen hints ends with "[[GIJoe Knowing Is Half The Battle]]."
** Two of the bots are named [[Franchise/MetalGear "Solid Cake" and "Liquid Cake"]].
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Princesses ''love'' cake.
