->''"Oh, my Ada. The only princess of the royal family of the kingdom of Small Heath."''
-->-- '''Freddie Thorne''' about '''Ada Shelby''', ''Series/PeakyBlinders''

A girl's boyfriend or father just lavishes love, attention and gifts on her. Especially gifts. [[EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry Jewelry]], dresses, [[PrettyInMink fur coats]], vacations, and it all seems to come from… um, wait, hold on a second. Where does he afford that? [[FellOffTheBackOfATruck He claims to have a job that puts him in a tax bracket way too low to afford all this.]]

If she brings up her suspicions to her father or boyfriend, of course he's going to deny this. He'll even [[ChewbaccaDefense twist her words to make her look wrong for even bringing that up]]. A SpoiledBrat may ignore it completely, a DragonLady may join up, while a SpoiledSweet girl may end up just getting on with her life and making it clear she doesn't want in on the family business -- though it's never that easy.

This is the life of a [[TheMafia Mafia]] Princess, with varying degrees of TruthInTelevision. One of the ways [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses not everything is better with princesses]] and a common characterization of women pertaining to TheMafia.

If the story is from a heroic point of view, the hero will [[DatingCatwoman fall in love]] with a [[TheMafia mafioso's]] [[InLoveWithTheGangstersGirl girlfriend]] or daughter. Both of them could be in danger of their lives. In more idealistic stories, the scary mobsters make an exception from scariness for her. If they like her father, they love and cherish her, pamper her, and [[BattleButler protect her with their lives]]. Their behavior might be interpreted as them seeing her as a symbol of innocence and gentle emotions, all the things these hardened criminals have lost. Additionally, the Boss [[PapaWolf probably wouldn't be happy]] if something happened that they could've prevented. Plus he might genuinely not want her to get involved in this world, since EvilParentsWantGoodKids. Either that, or he may be actively grooming her [[DaddysLittleVillain to take over his operations.]] In extreme cases, she may even covet Daddy's position and [[SelfMadeOrphan arrange for him to suffer an "accident"]] [[TheEvilPrincess so that she can take over the mob for herself.]]

The Japanese variant of this trope is the {{Yakuza}} princess; the female heir (or the daughter of the current heir) of a Yakuza clan who is both fully aware of the nature of the family enterprise and is often fully supportive of it.

A woman ''working'' for TheMafia or wilfully partaking in their activities '''[[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant isn't]]''' a Mafia Princess, even though she may have been one in the past. The daughter of a rank and file mafioso (Soldato or even most Capos for example) is usually not considered a Mafia princess.

Compare TheDon, DaddysLittleVillain, DarkMistress.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Kumiko of ''Manga/{{Gokusen}}'' hits between here and DaddysLittleVillain; she has full knowledge of her {{Yakuza}} background, is proud of it, but doesn't intend to live/work as one, instead choosing to be a teacher. And also does what ever she can to keep her students from ever thinking of joining the Yakuza.
* Ren from ''Lightnovel/FullMetalPanic'', subverted in that her family is getting squeezed by the new gangs and so she doesn't have lots of money and material possessions appearing from nowhere. (At least in the anime.) An episode of ''Fumoffu'' focuses on Sousuke training the yakuza in order to make them stronger and hopefully turn the situation around a little, which leads to a direct confrontation between the two gangs (albeit with the Mikihara family disguised) when Ren and Kaname are kidnapped.
* Sachie Wakamura from ''Manga/WildOnes'' had a grandfather in the mafia, and her bodyguard (and crush) was also in the mafia.
* Mireille Bouquet from ''Anime/{{Noir}}'' is an ex-Mafia Princess, being the last survivor of a once-great organized crime family in Corsica. Witnessing the hit that ended the rest of her family's lives drove her to become a world-renowned assassin instead.
** However, Mireille's childhood playmate Silvana Greone is an honest-to-God Mafia princess; already [[CreepyChild unhealthily fascinated with sharp objects and fear]] as a child, as an adult she acquires the title "Intoccabile" ("Untouchable") and rises to become the ''donna'' of the Greone Family.
* Maria Asagi from ''VideoGame/{{Gungrave}}'' is the girlfriend version twice over, being unaware of both Brandon and Big Daddy's business for years.
* Yukio Washimine from ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' deconstructs the trope to Hell and back. Her people didn't want her to sacrifice her normal life to take over (and some of her [[TheStarscream "followers", like Chaka,]] even try to kill her or sell her into {{sex slave}}ry), she can barely keep up with other mafia factions, [[spoiler:and both she and her protector Ginji end up dead.]]
* San Seto from ''Manga/MyBrideIsAMermaid'', who comes from a family of yakuza ''mermaids''.
** San's childhood playmate Luna Edomae also fits the bill. In fact, Luna's father runs a traditional rival outfit to San's father. When they both fall for the same guy, HilarityEnsues [[spoiler:and almost so did an all-out national-level gang war. Luckily, since this is a comedy, this is PlayedForLaughs.]]
* [[TheIngenue Eve Genoard]] of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' is entirely unaware that most of the money her family makes isn't through their textile plants, but from the marijuana and cocaine market.
* ActionGirl Anita from the ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' anime series is unaware that her apparently kind father is a well-known drug dealer. So when he's killed by the Zaoldyeck family, she wants her revenge...
** As well as Neon Nostrade, who is literally a Mafia Princess, except one of her hobbies is collecting human body parts so the spoiled part gets a bit twisted.
* The flashbacks reveal that Goldie Musou in ''Manga/GunsmithCats'' used to be this, knowing the true nature of her family quite well, but trying to use the respect her position provided for good ends. Then her parents got killed by an associate, and she went on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge using [[{{Brainwashed}} Brainwashing]] and drugs to force the innocent family members of the guilty parties to kill them, or be killed in the process.
* Sei from ''Anime/BurstAngel'', though she's associated with TheTriadsAndTheTongs instead.
* Alice in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' is a spoiled Mafia Princess who doesn't want to have to inherit her father's empire, [[spoiler:and as a result has her Contractor bodyguard kill most of the management.]]
* ''Anime/FutakoiAlternative'': Sakurazuki Kira and Yura, two teenage twins, granddaughters of the local yakuza boss. They see the yakuza in general as a good thing, but fight against their most extreme actions.
* Tsunayoshi Sawada from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' starts out as a [[RareMaleExample Mafia Prince]]: while his father says his job is drilling for oil, he's actually [[spoiler:the outside advisor to the Vongola Family.]] The ninth boss also is like a grandfather to him when he visits, and he himself is the heir to the throne, which he only finds out at the start of the story.
* Nagi Ichinose from ''Manga/NyanKoi''.
* [[spoiler:Sunmi]] from ''Manga/TokyoTribe 2''. [[spoiler: Her real name is Erika N. Darshia, and she's the daughter of the Archbishop, the international head of the WU-RONZ gang. If he ever found out that she was forced into prostitution by Buppa, he would have him killed.]]
* Genderflipped and subverted in the ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'' TV series. [[spoiler: Jun Ushiro's birth father Ichiro was a Yakuza heir, but after he was murdered by his enemies, little Ushiro's mother (Miho Satou aka Misumi Tanaka) left him with her middle-class cousin to protect him. He doesn't find out until he's a teenager, though the Yakuza still show up to help the pilots as requested by Misumi.)]]
* Hinagiku from ''Manga/HanamaruKindergarten''.
* In ''Anime/MezzoForte'' the YakuzaPrincess side is played perfectly straight by Momomi Minoi, the daughter of a powerful mob boss who happens to be more [[CuteAndPsycho bloodthirsty and batshit crazy]] than even her father. Minoi's second in command has to reign her in to prevent her from killing too many of ''her father's employees''.
* Asago of ''Manga/TokyoCrazyParadise,'' along with a few minor characters.
* Genderflipped and cranked UpToEleven in ''Manga/WolfGuyWolfenCrest'', where BigBad Haguro Dou is the son and heir of a Yakuza leader.
* Yoko from ''Manga/TokimekiTonight'' is a spoiled and mean yakuza boss's daughter.
* ''Manga/HaouAiren'' has three:
** Uo Hakuron was raised in TheTriadsAndTheTongs, and by age 14 he already was one of their top assassins. When he turns 18, he's one of their most powerful leaders already, second only to his adoptive father and leader.
** Hakuron's arranged fiancée Reilan is this, too.
** Shui Long, TheEvilGenius from Hakuron's FiveBadBand, was one of the sons of a Triad leader... and TheUnfavorite of the group.
* Mao Jahana from ''Anime/BloodPlus'' is a SpoiledSweet example. StalkerWithACrush tendencies aside towards Kai, she's ultimately a good girl and at times plays OnlySaneMan.
* Nami from ''Manga/KaseiYakyoku'', though she seems to be aware of her family's dealings.
* Hibari from ''Manga/StopHibarikun'' has three sisters and herself in her yakuza family. Her sisters are more cherished though, since her dad is bitter that his only son is {{transgender}}.
* Maki Kisaragi from ''Manga/WChange'' is the only grandchild of the current leader of the Kisaragi clan, and is treated as the leader when Torazou is unavailable.
* Kudou Youko of ''Manga/DestroyAndRevolution'' discovered that her father is a Yakuza crimelord. Despite the fact that this revelation turned her life upside down and no one wants to deal with her, she found herself loving her father because he's so nice to her.
* The plot of ''Manga/{{Nisekoi}}'' kicks off when the Yakuza Prince Raku and the Mafia Princess Chitoge had to fake dating to prevent an all-out gang war. [[spoiler: They end up falling in love for real.]]
* RareMaleExample: In ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'', [[spoiler:Giovanni]] wanted [[spoiler:Silver]] to be his successor, but [[spoiler:Silver]] was [[AdultFear kidnapped as a toddler]] and ended up fighting against his father's organisation twice before [[LukeIAmYourFather discovering his heritage]].
* 14 year old [[LittleMissBadass Loretta Cristiano]] is assumed to be one of these when Alex first meets her in ''{{Manga/Gangsta}}'', only for Alex to be shocked when she finds out that Loretta is actually ''[[YoungAndInCharge the head of the Cristiano family]]''. Presumably Loretta did qualify before her father died and she ascended to the position, but it's implied even before that she'd held quite a bit of power and sway over the family.
* ''Manga/{{Kizuna}}'' has a pair of {{Rare Male Example}}s, since a {{Yakuza}} clan from Kyoto is very involved in the plot:
** Kai Sagano is the spoiled and HotBlooded heir to said Yakuza clan. This deeply fucks up with his life, since he's just a teenager and when his father dies, he knows jack shit about what to actually do.
** [[spoiler: Kei Enjouji, aka the {{seme}} of the story, finds out after his mother's death that said mom once was the lover of a yakuza... who also happens to be Kai's father. He is '''not''' happy.]]
* In ''Manga/ShamanKing'', Hao's follower [[spoiler: [[ElegantGothicLolita Marion]] [[EmotionlessGirl Phauna]] ]] was the daughter of a Mafia boss and a FortuneTeller. When [[spoiler: Marion]]'s parents were killed by the father's mob enemies and were about to kill ''her'' too, Hao appeared and saved her by killing them.
* Trish Una from ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureVentoAureo'' fits the biological component as her father is the Don of Passione, but while acting a tad snobbish and spoiled at times she ultimately averts the common stereotypes of the role [[spoiler: especially when it becomes apparent that her father wants her dead due to having a near-psychopathic obsession with his own anonymity that she could be a potential hole through.]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Batfamily]]:
** The Helena Bertinelli version of the ComicBook/{{Huntress}} has this as her origin story. After rivals massacred her family, she spent years training to become a superhero ready to take on the entire mob.
** [[ComicBook/{{Catwoman}} Selina Kyle]] may or may not be the unacknowledged illegitimate daughter of Carmine Falcone, one of the mob bosses that Batman took down in his early years. She believed she was, but was never able to find any actual proof one way or the other. Her maybe-sister Sofia Gigante definitely qualifies.
** Eiko Hasigawa, [[Comicbook/AffirmativeActionLegacy who wore the mantle of]] Comicbook/{{Catwoman}} for a time, is the daughter of a prominent {{Yakuza}} family in Gotham. [[spoiler: She ultimately hangs up the tights to run her clan after her father is killed.]]
** Darla Aquista from the [[ComicBook/RobinSeries Robin series]] published in ''Robin Unmasked'', ''War Drums'', and ''War Games''
** Suzie Su from ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws'', whose father appears to be ''very'' well-connected.
** Peyton Riley, the second Ventriloquist, is the daughter of Irish mobster Sean Riley, who forced her to marry Italian mobster Johnny Sabatino as a part of a peace treaty between their factions.
* Benito Medici from ''ComicBook/OneHundredBullets'' is a double subversion of this trope being how he's male and is fully aware of his father's illegal activities. However he still wishes to remain apart from them.
* The villainess Madame Masque of ''IronMan'' and ''Comicbook/TheAvengers'' fame was raised by another family on orders of her father, the ''Film/JamesBond''-esque international crime boss Count Nefaria largely because he couldn't be bothered to raise a child. But in an subversion of this, once her adopted father died, Nefaria came calling and forced his daughter to serve as his right hand (wo)man, going so far as to out her true parentage to her politician fiancé, who dumped Madam Masque upon learning his soon to be bride's true parentage.
* Brenda from ''ComicBook/BlueBeetle'' ends up rescued from the grasp of her abusive father (who suffers an "accident") and taken in by her aunt, a wealthy businesswoman. What she doesn't know is that her aunt is La Dama, the head of organized crime in El Paso, and when she finds out, she doesn't take it well.
* Lola Palooza from ''ComicBook/CherryComics''.
* Janice, the new female Beetle of ''ComicBook/TheSuperiorFoesOfSpiderMan'' is revealed to be the daughter of the mob boss Tombstone. [[EvilParentsWantGoodKids Her father wanted her to pursue a legitimate]] ([[SubvertedTrope but still evil]]) career as an AmoralAttorney, and Janice attended and excelled at a high ranking law school. However, Janice's goal is to break the glass ceiling of the criminal underworld as a supervillain.
* The Comicbook/GreenArrow character Shado is the daughter of a disgraced Yakuza member who committed {{Seppuku}} after betraying his clan.
* Appolonia Franchetti in ''ComicBook/TheDarkness'' is a deconstruction of this trope, showing how bad this trope can be for a girl with a unhinged psycho like Frankie [[WouldHurtAChild "Kill the children too"]] Franchetti for a father: while he was never abusive towards her, one day as a child, she saw him [[CruelAndUnusualDeath killing a man with a blowtorch]] in front of her mother Lauren because said man was her lover and Frankie caught both of them in the act. While Frankie never intended for Appolonia to see this, he left his wife catatonic and turned Appolonia into a ruthless and cruel individual driven to make her father pay for what he did to her mother.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* [[spoiler:Tsuruya-san]] is the {{Yakuza}} variant in ''Fanfic/KyonBigDamnHero''. So are all of Kyon's cousins. [[note]] There's {{Polyamory}} involved.[[/note]]
* ''Fanfic/TheStanfordAdventureClub'' has a RareMaleExample with Tarvek Sturmvoraus, whose father is a mob boss and tries to make his thirteen years-old son his successor. Tarvek decided he would rather run away with his cousin Violetta and did such after his father's death.
* Gender-inverted with Izuku is one with supervillains in ''FanFic/BloodstainedHeroesOfHumanity''. Izuku grew up unaware and sheltered of his ParentalSubstitute Sumi's activities and Inko's darker connections. He gets a harsh wake cup call when Sumi attempts to initiate him to get him started on becoming a supervillain.
* In ''Fanfic/TaylorVarga'', it is eventually revealed that Danny Hebert's side of the family is descended from a certain family with roots in Corsica, and Annette's side is from another region of Italy. This makes the incarnation of Taylor in this Fic into a kind-of Mafia Princess, as Danny ends up cultivating the family reputation even though he actually is running the Union legit.

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', Fru Fru, an arctic shrew that Judy saves from getting crushed by a giant doughnut turns out to be the daughter of one of the most powerful crime lords in the Tundra Town, earning her the loyalty of the Fru Fru's father, "Mr Big". She and Judy end up being very good friends (Fru Fru plans to name her daughter after Judy, and make her the godmother), but on the other hand, her reaction to the imminent icing of two mammals she hadn't yet recognized was essentially: "Daddy, what did we say? No icing anyone at my wedding!".
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMysteryOfTheBatwoman'' features Kathleen Duquesne, daughter of crimelord Carlton Duquesne.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Constanzia "Connie" Corleone (Talia Shire) in ''Film/TheGodfather'' may be the archetypal example of this. By the end of the first film however, when her abusive husband is murdered by her brother Michael for his role in setting up the murder of the oldest sibling Sonny, [[BrokenBird Connie finds herself quite jaded]] and goes into a downward spiral of debauchery and drinking to punish her brother Michael. It takes the death of her mother Carmela to get her to clean her act up, at which point she convinces Michael to reconcile with turncoat brother Fredo. By the third film, she's been upgraded to full-blown Godmother and has taken the role of adviser/Corleone Family mentor to Sonny's illegitimate son Vinnie, who has followed his father's footsteps into organized crime.
** Michael's youngest daughter Mary (Sofia Coppola, covering up for Winona Ryder), in the third film, takes this role and is legitimately oblivious to her father's corrupt ways, also striking a romance with [[KissingCousins her cousin]] Vinnie. [[spoiler: The poor kid ends up shot to death as a result of her father's crimes coming back to bite him on the ass, since an assassin sent to snipe Michael after her brother's opera debut shoots her instead by mistake; she dies in Michael's arms, and he's pushed to the DespairEventHorizon.]]
* Although Sharon Stone's character in ''Film/{{Casino}}'' seems to be in on what her husband does (to an extent), their daughter fits this trope.
* ''Film/MickeyBlueEyes'' plays this from the point of view of a boyfriend getting involved with a low-level Mafia Princess. Initially, he just thinks her father just happens to be a very generous, well-off person... until the girlfriend (who knows what's really going on) exasperatedly fills him in.
** In point of fact she is a good character who rather dislikes the family business and wants to be a {{Schoolmarm}} instead.
* The girlfriend in ''Film/JohnnyDangerously'' may count, but his mother definitely does.
* [[spoiler: Grace]] from ''Film/{{Dogville}}'' turns out to be a reluctant Mafia Princess.
* Jade from ''Film/BulletProofMonk'' is TheMafiya Princess. Her father is in jail, so even if she didn't know before, she knows now. This is a plot point. [[spoiler: Since she is a "princess" then the mansion she lives in a "palace", and thus a fight with her love interest within it counts as a "battle for love in the palace of jade".]]
* A couple girls from Semyon's family -- his granddaughters -- get plenty of attention in ''Film/EasternPromises''. Not as extreme of an example as some of the others here, but the way they're treated is used for a stark contrast with [[spoiler:how Semyon and the ''rest'' of his [[TheMafiya family]] treat women, even implicitly children who may be his granddaughters' ages.]]
* Penelope Ann-Miller's character in ''Film/TheFreshman''.
* Trish from ''Film/RomeoMustDie'' is the "SpoiledSweet who wants nothing to do with the family business" variety.
* In Baz Luhrmann's ''[[Film/WilliamShakespearesRomeoAndJuliet Romeo + Juliet]]'', the action is set in mafia-controlled beach city. As a consequence, Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio's Romeo and Creator/ClaireDanes' Juliet are both mafia kids, and so is John Leguizamo's Tybalt.
* In ''Film/{{Scarface 1983}}'' Tony's sister [[IncestSubtext Gina]] is this, as he is always buying her nice things and giving her money, though their mother disapproves and refuses to take money from him.
* In ''Film/{{Pusher}} 3'', it's revealed that the ruthless druglord Milo has a very demanding adult daughter. The film is set on the day of her birthday, while he's trying to throw her a celebration that meets her standards. Along the way, he discovers that her boyfriend is a drug-dealer, so Milo browbeats the boyfriend into buying all of his drugs from him. When Milo's daughter finds out, she browbeats ''Milo'' into lowering his price. Whatta family!
* ''Film/WhyDontYouPlayInHell'': One of the three main characters is the willful daughter of a yakuza boss. She's an actress trying to become famous, while her father struggles to use his connections to make that happen.
* In ''Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService'', the main Bond Girl is Contessa Teresa "Tracy" di Vicenzo. Her father, Marc-Ange Draco, is the leader of Union Corse, an organized crime syndicate, though Tracy herself is not evil by any means.

* Francesca Comtesse Corona a.k.a. Fanchette, [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter the Granddaughter]] of [[TheDon Colonel Bozzo-Corona]] [[BigBad the Master]] of ''Literature/TheBlackCoats''.
* The term may or may not have originated with the early 1980s book ''Mafia Princess: Growing Up in Sam Giancana's Family'', and the resulting TV movie.
* A plot point in ''Literature/RonjaTheRobbersDaughter'' is the titular character finding out that she is a robber's daughter -- and what exactly "robber" means. [[spoiler:This is one of the reasons she runs away from home. In the end, [[HappilyEverAfter she finds a better source of income.]]]]
* In the Creator/AndrewVachss novel ''Strega,'' unlicensed private eye Burke does a job for the title character, the [[EvilRedhead crazy flame-haired relative]] of a Mafia boss, who wields a mysterious power over men. [[spoiler:It later turns out the Mafia boss molested her as a little girl; when Strega told her father she was beaten for telling 'lies', teaching her an early lesson in the use of power that she later puts to use.]]
* Lila Zacharov from ''Literature/TheCurseWorkers'' trilogy by Creator/HollyBlack
* In ''Time to Depart'', by Creator/LindseyDavis, crime boss Balbinus Pius is given 'time to depart'-- he is exiled from Rome and its territories. However, a power vacuum creates in his absence, and a new boss emerges-- his son-in-law, married to his daughter, the Mafia Princess Balbina Milvia, who ends up having an affair with the main character's best friend... who happens to be the guy who exiled her father. Oops. He almost loses his job, and his life at that.
* Creator/JackieCollins' character, Lucky Santangelo, in the eponymous book, ''Lucky''.
* Partially subverted in the ''Literature/GarrettPI'' novels. Although kingpin Chodo Contague did pamper his daughter Belinda, he was always truthful with her about what line of business he was in. [[spoiler: And he paid the price for his honesty when Belinda took over the Outfit after his stroke, putting her own words in the mouth of her father's comatose body.]]
* ''Literature/MonaLisaOverdrive'' by Creator/WilliamGibson. Kumiko Yanaka, a 13-year old Japanese girl, daughter of a fearsomely powerful {{Yakuza}} boss, suffers for being a Mafia Princess. She lives a life of [[GildedCage powerless, dreary, luxury.]] All her relationships are with smooth, cold, servants of her father. She would be far too valuable in the hands of his enemies for him to risk giving her freedom.
* ''[[Literature/GentlemanBastard The Lies of Locke Lamora]]'' features a subversion in the form of Nazca Barsavi; while she grows up in the lap of the luxury, she knows from a young age ''exactly'' what her father does, and is even groomed to serve as his heir. [[spoiler: At least, until a rival kills her off in a horrifying fashion to deliver a message to her father...]]
* In the manga adaptation of ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' the story is transplanted to modern Tokyo and the two families are Yakuza clans, thus Juliet is one of these.
* The title character of ''Literature/SonOfTheMob'' is a fairly straight gender flip, although he, not his innocent love interest, is the protagonist. He figured out his father's real profession fairly early on, but he's balanced between being really loyal and really, ''really'' law-abiding, so he does his best to stay out of things.
** Though the family knows that he's really, ''really'' law abiding… and therefore just has him "help" without his knowledge, like in the start of Son of the Mob 2 where they switched his "clothes for college" suitcase with an identical one containing ill-gotten money so he'd unknowingly take it across state lines for them (leading to a switch at an airport that caused mass chaos). He and his innocent (but also an FBI agent's daughter) love interest are not happy. His best friend thought it was cool and wanted to keep "their take."
* In ''Literature/TheMysteriesOfPittsburgh'' Art Bechenstein is also another gender-flipped variant who struggles to keep his friends separate from his father's life as a senior Mafioso.
* Carrie Asai's "Samurai Girl" series and the ABC miniseries based off it are all about the main character Heaven discovering her father's a Yakuza boss, and subsequently fighting off assassins and generally kicking ass...
* In ''All These Things I've Done'' by Gabrielle Zevin, Anya Balanchine is a Mafiya princess, only in this dystopian future (around 2083), the contraband they sell is chocolate. Her father was shot to death in front of her because of a deal gone bad. She is aware of what they do, but doesn't know much of the details. Anya ends up falling in love with the District Attorney's son, which causes problems for their relationship.
* Terisa Morgan's backstory in ''Mordant's Need'' appears to be something like this -- her father is ''probably'' on the right side of the law, but seems to have a surprising number of {{Mooks}} hanging around and spends much of his considerable income "buying influence." She seems convinced he's doing something very shady, if not strictly illegal.
* Jenna Caddrick of Literature/TimeScout is aware her father's a bastard, but not how ''big'' a bastard.
* Tej in ''Literature/CaptainVorpatrilsAlliance'' is the daughter of one of the robber barons of Jackson's Whole.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/TheSopranos''
** Meadow Soprano. At first subverted then embraced: Meadow knows full well that her dad is a mobster, going so far as to out their father to her younger brother AJ when kids at his school start dropping anvils about how AJ could not be bullied because of the fact that the bullies feared what AJ's dad would do to them and their families if they tormented him. However, when Meadow finally confronts her father during a road trip to visit a college, Tony lies and Meadow believes him, even as Tony lies to her about him sneaking out during one of their nights away in order to kill a mob snitch in hiding who they had encountered by chance.\\
When her mob-connected boyfriend dies (on orders of her father), Meadow is pulled aside by her mother and given a StepfordSmiler speech ordering her to make a vow never to believe the idea that her father ordered Jackie Jr.'s death. This is the turning point, as she ends up having no trouble living the lie, even chiding a fellow mafia princess for speaking of it in front of an outsider, and by the finale ends up telling her father that she is proud of what he does and curses the government for "tormenting" the family in its quest to bust her father. She even announces she's going to become a ''mob lawyer'', though she puts it in much more idealistic terms than that.
** Subverted by Adriana La Cerva, who grew up in the mob, fully understands how her boyfriend Christopher makes his money, and is proud of him and her "[[HonoraryUncle uncles]]". [[spoiler:At least, until she turns to the FBI in large part due to them forcing her to face up to the fact that one of her uncles was killed by Tony. When she tries to get her boyfriend to enter the Witness Protection Program with her, things do not go well for her, as Christopher informs Tony of Adriana's informant status, leading to her whacking by Silvio Dante]].
* The mother on ''GroundedForLife'' eventually learns her uncle is in the mob, after her husband and brother-in-law blow a favor for him ([[CouldHaveBeenMessy fortunately not a big favor]]).
* Akira Mimasaka's little sisters in the j-Drama continuity of ''Series/HanaYoriDango''. Also, Akira himself could possibly be considered a male version of the trope; while he knows his parents are Yakuza bosses, he never seems to suffer any negative consequences or have any participation in the less palatable aspects of the family business and has large enough prestige and access to money and luxury goods to make him one of the four most wealthy and powerful students at a school that (with one exception) has no students that ''aren't'' fabulously rich.
* On ''[[Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun 3rd Rock From The Sun]]'', Sally started acting like one when she dated Sammy "TheButcher" Marchetti. He turned out to be a literal butcher.
* Sun from ''Series/{{Lost}}'' is a South Korean version but she does not approve of her father's actions. She will however make use of the business contact when she wants to badass it up a little.
* Irene Zuko in ''Series/DueSouth.''
* Jeanne Benoit in ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' whose father wasn't mafia precisely but was notorious as an illegal ArmsDealer.
* Catherine Willows on ''Series/{{CSI}}'' might qualify. Her estranged father, Sam Braun, did not marry her mother and Willows was not aware that Braun was her father until she was an adult. Braun was a casino owner but it was strongly implied he had organized crime connections.
** The episode "Let It Bleed" had a local Mafia Princess as the victim. Everyone involved with the events leading up to her death is convinced that her father will kill them for allowing this to happen, despite the fact that her death was an accident and that the drugs she had willfully been taking at the time played a major part in it. A montage at the end of the episode shows that he in fact, did have everyone killed, including the two idiots who had inadvertently caused her death, the club owner who had supplied the drugs, her best friend, who she had ditched to acquire said drugs, and her aunt/guardian, whose house she had sneaked out of to begin with.
* A mafia princess was the BodyOfTheWeek on ''Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent''. At first it seems like she was killed over her upcoming tell-all book, but digging a bit further reveals a much more complicated plot.
* Princess was even ''Series/EastEnders''' Den Watt's famous pet name for his adopted daughter Sharon whom he spoiled rotten. Den wasn't exactly a gangster but had a habit of being used as something of a {{buttmonkey}} for the local Firm. He ends up being shot by the Firm and Sharon is left grieving only to have her dad [[BackFromTheDead come back to life]] fourteen years later, having just faked his death to hide from the Firm all along. [[DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou Hello Princess]] indeed. His love-child Vicky may also qualify, at least in the 80's when Den [[TheUnfavourite actually loved both his daughters]].
** Played up more with Ruby Allen who's father Johnny was actually a Mafia boss. Unlike Sharon though, Ruby wasn't initially her father's top priority and it's implied he favored her sister, Scarlet, whom he named his nightclub after. But after the house fire which killed both Ruby's mother and Scarlet, Johnny sent Ruby off to boarding school and barely sees her again until she tracks him down in Walford. It turns out that Johnny saved Ruby from the fire but only because he mistook her for Scarlet as the sisters had swapped beds. They do reconcile and Ruby becomes more true to the trope, even after she discovers her father is more than just a 'business' man.
* ''Series/GeneralHospital'' with Lily Rivera. Her mobster father separates her from her boyfriend by threatening the young man's life, then takes their child away from her as soon as it's born. Needless to say, she's repulsed and frightened by him--until he nearly dies from pneumonia, at which point she forgives him. Ironically, she soon falls in love with mafia kingpin Sonny Corinthos and fits perfectly into his world because she knows not to ask questions about his business, and soon uses her father's mob powers to engineer a marriage to him. It backfires when she's killed by a car bomb meant for Sonny--planted by her father, incensed that Sonny has refused to stop seeing his ex.
* Tatum Novak from ''Series/{{Crownies}}''. She claims her father went straight when he married her mother, but the connection is still enough to attract the attention of the police.
* Jewel Diamond from ''Series/SuburbanShootout''.
* In ''Series/{{Nikita}}'' Alex is this as her father was a Russian oligarch. She becomes a FallenPrincess when her father is killed and his right hand man is put into power.
* ''Series/BlueBloods'':
** One first season episode had a {{Mafiya}} wife kill her daughter's fiance because she wanted her to not go from being a Mafiya princess to a Mafiya wife.
** The season 2 MythArc has Jamie Reagan go undercover inside the Sanfino family after saving the life of {{the don}}'s nephew Noble during an unrelated undercover op. He ends up befriending Noble's sister Bianca, who is one of these. [[spoiler:When the undercover operation concludes in the season finale, Bianca turns state's evidence and goes into witness protection.]]
* Ada Shelby of ''Series/PeakyBlinders''. Rather usually, she's not a gangster's ''daughter'', but rather some gangsters' ''sister''--and niece. She doesn't want to be one, but she is.

* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlDGFrP4NgI Bust Your Kneecaps]]" by Pomplamoose is a [[LyricalDissonance delightfully cheerful]] {{retraux}} song about a man who dated one of these and [[RunawayBride left her at the altar]]. She warns him to come back to her, or her family will get him. [[spoiler:He doesn't come back]].
* Music/NataliaKills portrays herself as one of these in her second album ''Trouble'', though the metaphor is somewhat muddled by her writing in her own mother's perspective some of the time. The mafioso father is jailed at some point before the album, leaving their family finances devastated.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* {{Subverted| trope}} by Mia Mancini in Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s version of FCW, who claimed innocence but was anything but.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Mitsuru Kirijo from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', of the Yakuza Princess (or more accurately the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Shadowy]] [[MegaCorp Corporation]] Princess) type (though it's worth noting that both she and [[HonestCorporateExecutive her father]] are genuinely decent people who are trying to [[TheAtoner make up for the sins of their predecessors]]).
* In indie game ''Hot Dog King'', you can hire the daughter of a mafia boss for free, mistreat her by overwork or by making her wear clothes she feel uncomfortable in and well… let's just say your empire will fall…
* You save one of these in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' game and help her get married to one of Don Pianta's goons. Did we mention that this was the ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine Pianta]]'' mafia?
* Midori, a character exclusive to Chie's route in ''VisualNovel/KiraKira'', is one of these, but she doesn't get along with her parents and repeatedly runs away from home. Even once she's made her own life for herself, though, she still has yakuza minions doing her bidding…
* Miyu in ''VideoGame/RedSteel'' is the Yakuza variant.
* Strongly hinted at in ''VideoGame/TheIdolmaster'' that Yukiho's father is a yakuza boss. ''[[VideoGame/TheIdolmasterCinderellaGirls Cinderella Girls']]'' Tomoe Murakami and ''[[VideoGame/TheIdolmasterSideM Side M's]]'' Daigo Kabuto are hinted at having mafia heritage as well.
* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV''
** One mission has you kidnap ([[RichBitch a particularly annoying]]) one of these, Gracie Ancelotti, for ransom. In ''The Ballad of Gay Tony'' it turns out she's one of Tony's entourage (and Luis doesn't like her any more than Niko did).
** Anna Faustin, daughter of Russian Mafia boss Mikhail Faustin. In one mission, Faustin orders Niko to kill her biker boyfriend.
** Dani Lupisella, daughter of the Lupisella Family boss Mark Lupisella. Luis' bad experience with dating her (particularly the break-up, where Dani threatened to have Luis castrated) is one reason why he dislikes Gracie.
* Antonia Bottino in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' is the daughter of a former Mafia boss who's made a lot of enemies. She's met in a RandomEncounter where the PlayerCharacter can potentially save her from being BuriedAlive. Doing so results in her grateful family transferring $60,000 dollars to your account.
* [[spoiler: Risha]] of Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic is revealed to be one of these (of the "groomed to take father's place" variety) at the end of Act 1 as well as [[spoiler: a literal princess]]. She's been trying to restore his massive criminal empire and [[spoiler: claim the throne]] for years, enlisting the help of [[spoiler: the smuggler.]]
* Maya Carrasco in ''The Sentinel.''
* ''Videogame/BatmanTheTelltaleSeries'' reveals early on that [[spoiler:Bruce Wayne himself]] turns out to be this, with [[spoiler:Thomas Wayne]] being a member of a crime syndicate that laid the foundations of modern day Gotham.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* ''Franchise/WhenTheyCry'':
** Mion Sonozaki and her sister Shion in ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' are members of the Sonozaki {{yakuza}} clan, led by their grandmother Oryuu, and it's implied that their unseen father is a yakuza too. Mion is the heir to the clan. [[spoiler:Though Shion was originally the heir. They accidentally did a permanent TwinSwitch as kids, making the original Shion the heir and current Mion]].
** Kyrie Ushiromiya from ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' is another Yakuza example, having originally been from the Sumadera family before marrying Rudolf Ushiromiya. [[spoiler: Bad thing, that left Kyrie's sister Kasumi stuck in an ArrangedMarriage to a guy [[RunawayFiance that she ran away from]], and she ended up taking it out (and that's saying it politely) on Kyrie's daughter Ange.]]
* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'':
** [[spoiler: Viola Cadaverini]] is the granddaughter of a Mafia boss and [[spoiler: the girlfriend/accomplice of a loan shark who was also in the organized crime business.]]
** ''Apollo Justice'' has a girl purposefully marrying the son of the local godfather. [[spoiler: She did this with the knowledge that he had a botched operation covered up, causing "the wheel of fate" of the bullet lodged near his heart to cause his death soon, so she would inherit everything.]]
* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'': Other than the fact that her grandfather is a Yakuza boss and that she apparently knows her way well around Kendo, Taiga Fujimura doesn't display any of the other traits found in this trope.
* ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo''
** Kenji ''thinks'' Lilly is this, having seen her getting into a car with a "man in a pinstripe suit" (actually her {{Bifauxnen}} older sister Akira, but Kenji is extremely shortsighted ''even with his glasses on''), and reasoning because she is half-foreign and wealthy, she must be part of it.
** There are also several hints ([[PlayedForLaughs all humorous, though]]) that Shizune's father Jigoro Hakamichi might be a high-ranking yakuza.[[note]](i.e he is a huge guy, he's a major JerkAss, his ''very'' successful businesses are never really explained, he not only owns a katana ''but he parades around with it every single time he appears'', etc.)[[/note]] Assuming this is true, then not only is Shizune a genuine Mafia Princess, but given that Lilly is her cousin from her father's side, it might mean ''one of Kenji's crazy theories was actually true after all.''
* In ''VisualNovel/KissedByTheBaddestBidder'', both Carolina Bucci (in Eisuke's route) and Mei Ling Lee (in Soryu's) fit the "yakuza princess" subtype, although neither of them are from yakuza families. Carolina's father Antonio is a [[TheMafia Mafia]] [[TheDon don]], while Mei Ling is the daughter of [[TheTriadsAndTheTongs Triad]] boss Simon Lee. In both cases, their fathers clearly dote upon them, and neither woman has any particular issues with her father's activities, although Mei Ling chafes a bit at the lack of freedom that comes with being a Triad boss's daughter.

* Subverted by [[spoiler:Crossroad, a rogue superheroine]] in ''Webcomic/AntiheroForHire''. She knows exactly what her family's up to, and it ''pisses her off.''
* The aptly named Prince from ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' has no idea that his father is supporting him with the money he got from [[LoanShark ruining other people's lives.]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Borderline {{Deconstruction}} in [[DistaffCounterpart Dani]] of ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', whose "[[NotBloodRelated dad]]" [[MoralEventHorizon led her on and treated her quite badly]].
* Wanda in ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'', as revealed in the episode where her [[TheDon father]] goes missing and she has to take over the family's "perfectly legitimate" garbage collection empire. She ends up making so many outrageous changes (including painting all the trucks pink and insisting on using lace doilies everywhere) that the men take her to "the butcher" as payback. [[spoiler: Literally--they take her out to dinner at a nice steakhouse to thank her.]] Bonus points for the [[Film/TheGodfather horse head]] in Cosmo's bed; it's a stuffed animal that he sleeps with.
* The ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' version of Huntress keeps this as part of her origin story. Being a child, she had no idea what her father did for a living...until one of her father's henchmen betrayed them and killed her parents in front of her.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'': While Future Industries seems to be a (mostly) legitimate business, [[SpoiledSweet Asami Sato]] has no idea that her father, Hiroshi, is one of the leaders of [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters the Equalists.]] When she finds out, he even tells her, "I had hoped to keep you out of this."
