Playing With: Princesses Prefer Pink
Basic Trope: A princess who prefers to wear pink for her normal attire.
  • Straight: Princess Chiffon's trademark dress is a bright, cheerful pink.
  • Exaggerated:
    • All princesses everywhere wear pink all the time.
    • On top of her always pink attire, Chiffon has bright pink hair the same shade as her eyes, rosy cheeks, pink nail polish on her fingers and toes...
    • Princess Chiffon has a magical aura that turns anything she wears pink.
  • Downplayed: Princess Chiffon wears a white dress with pink accents.
  • Justified: Pink is Chiffon's favorite color, and the royal tailors cater to her whims.
  • Inverted: Chiffon's older sister Velvet prefers simpler attire of blue or purple, and refuses to wear anything pink.
  • Subverted: Princess Daphne is introduced to the knight Frederick in a stunning scarlet dress.
  • Double Subverted: However, it turns out she normally wears pink, and only wore the red dress on that particular occasion at the request of her parents, who fear that pink makes her look immature.
  • Parodied: The Princess's wardrobe is all pink, she paints herself pink every morning, and the entire castle is painted pink.
  • Zig Zagged: The princess wears pink on some days and blue on others, varying her daily attire.
  • Averted: None of the princesses who appear wear pink.
  • Enforced: "Give her a really fancy pink dress! Girls love pink!"
  • Lampshaded: "Do you ever wear a color that isn't pink?"
  • Invoked: Cheryl, a Femme Fatale who specializes as a Decoy Damsel, wears pink to fool her marks into mistaking her for a princess.
  • Exploited: Cheryl impersonates Princess Chiffon by mimicking her all-pink attire.
  • Defied: The princess never wears pink.
  • Discussed: "She's wearing pink! she must be a princess!"
  • Conversed: "I wonder why princess's always wear pink. I'm sure they could afford a larger variety of colors."
  • Deconstructed: The princess wearing nothing but pink makes other countries unable to take her diplomatic missions seriously, and because the princess refuses to change her outfit even on multiple requests, she causes breakdowns of long lasting alliances, leading to war. Trade of dye and cloth is cut off, making the princess unable to wear pink.
  • Reconstructed: However, the princess's armies win the war. The first thing she does after the peace treaty signing is to buy a pink dress.
  • Played For Laughs: Chiffon is a Spoiled Brat who throws a fit if something isn't pink enough: "That's not pink! It's lightish red! RAGE--!"
  • Played For Drama: Anyone who will be executed in the revolution is to be clothed in their daily attire, so that they may die as they lived. When the revolutionaries capture the princess, they force her to wear pink, saying it always was her favorite.
