Amira: But don't you want me to bust you out of that tower? Sadie: Hah! As if you could. Dozens of princes already failed. What makes you any different? Amira: Because I am no prince! My name is Princess Amira... and I have a grappling hook. Sadie: Oh, sweet.
Meaningful Name: Both Sadie and Amira mean 'princess' in different languages.
Medium Awareness: Sadie's had enough princes try to rescue her that she recognizes the spontaneous roses around Amira's speech bubbles and tells her to go away. Amira also asks how long Sadie's hair is as a possible means of escape from her tower, and Sadie replies that she's not Rapunzel.
Rebellious Princess: Amira runs away from her kingdom when her parents start forcing suitors on her.
Reluctant Ruler: Sadie, Amira, and Prince Vladric all shirk their royal responsibilities for their own reasons, though Sadie's reluctance is at least partly due to her sister constantly telling her she's not smart or capable enough to rule.
Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: When their father died and asked them to rule together, Sadie's sister locked her in a tower. This was after Sadie outright admitted that she had no interest in ruling the kingdom, and that her sister was better suited to the job. However, she remains convinced that Sadie is out to take her place and continues to antagonize her, which ends up getting her turned into a pig by her own magic, meaning Sadie has to take the throne in her place. Furthermore, Sadie overcomes her crippling lack of self-confidence in the process.
Shoulder Dragon: Oliver isn't quite small enough to fit on a shoulder, but he is about the size of a medium-sized dog.
Sweet Tooth: Celeste really, really likes cookies, so much that she barges through the base of a tall stone tower in running towards a (non-existent) cookie on the other side.
The Wise Prince: Prince Taji tells Amira that they are fortunate to have been born into a position where they don't have to work or worry about money and that they should use their power to help their subjects.
