!!This series contains examples of the following tropes:

* HundredPercentAdorationRating: All four sisters are positively adored by their people.
* ActionGirl: All the princesses, but Roxanne takes the cake.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The girls. Their parents...less so.
* BlondBrunetteRedhead: Sabrina is the blond, Roxanne and Demetra are the brunettes, and Emily is the redhead.
* 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.
* CunningLikeAFox Demetra's royal adviser, Finley is a snow fox.
* DaddysLittleVillain: Rudgrin, Lord Bleak's daughter.
* DarkMagicalGirl: Rudgrin again. 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.
* FieryRedhead: Emily
* GenkiGirl: Emily
* HairOfGold: Blonde Sabrina is the sweetest and most innocent of the sisters.
* 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.)
* IneptMage: Wink, in ''The Diamond Princess and the Magic Ball''
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Father Like Daughter]]: Rudgrin.
* MagicMirror: Demetra owns a magic hand mirror.
* MeaningfulName: ''Rox''anne rules the Ruby ''Mountains''. King ''Regal'' and Queen ''Jemma'' are obvious. Lord ''Bleak'' rules a barren, dying country.
* NonHumanSidekick: All four girls have a non-human royal adviser. Roxanne's is the dragon Hapgood, Sabrina's is the butterfly Zazz, Emily's is the unicorn Arden, and Demetra's is the snow fox Finley.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: They are Western dragons in appearance and breathe fire, but like Eastern dragons, they can talk and are considered wise.
* ParentalAbandonment: Where the hell ''are'' those guys? We see them in the first book, and that's it.
* PuppyLove: Demetra and Wink
* 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.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Roxanne's baby dragon, Sassafras, is so adorable, he induces CutenessOverload in everyone around him.
* ShrinkingViolet: Played straight with Sabrina, averted in Roxanne.
* TomboyPrincess: Roxanne and Emily
* WinterRoyalLady: Demetra.
