* AliensNeverInventedDemocracy: It seems like most, if not all, of the civilizations outside of Earth are ruled by monarchies. Probably because EverythingIsBetterWithPrincesses. This is a Downplayed example, however, since the Magic Dimension is shown to be a modern, if not ''advanced'', society and aside from the royals and the occasional arranged marriages here and there, the monarchies don't really share the attributes of true feudal systems.

* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses:
** Stella is the princess of Solaria. Aisha is the princess of Andros. Galatea is the princess of Melody. Crystal is the princess of Linphea. Amentia is the princess of Downland. Tressa is the princess of the mermaids of Andros.
** Bloom is revealed to be the princess of Domino at the end of season 1.
** Musa is not a princess, but 4Kids [[DubInducedPlotHole called her one,]] so when her not being a princess became important her dad was stated to be a former prince.
** Flora is not a princess, despite her saying she is the princess of Linphea in the Cinélume dub of ''[[NonSerialMovie Magical Adventure]]'' (although considering they were trying to get inside the castle, she might've lied to them so they'd let her in).
** Tecna is a princess in the comics, but season 5 definitively confirms that she's not. Comic issues released post-season 5 also retcon her status as a princess to better fit with the show's narrative.
** {{Subverted}} with princess Diaspro of Eraklyon, who is a major {{Jerkass}} and occasionally evil.
** {{Subverted}} with Chimera, who almost became princess of Solaria, but she joined up with Valtor and eventually lost her status.
** [[spoiler:Roxy is revealed to be Queen Morgana's daughter, and thus is the princess of Tir Nan Og. When Morgana abdicates the throne, she gives it to Nebula to rule as regent because Roxy is too young.]]



* GratuitousPrincess: Most of the main characters are some kind of princess: Stella is the princess of Solaria. Aisha is the princess of Andros. Bloom is revealed to be the princess of Domino at the end of season 1. Roxy is revealed to be the crown princess of Tír na nÓg at the end of season 4.

** Daphne is Bloom's sister, and Bloom was born with the Dragon Flame. In the 4Kids dub to this somehow, Bloom and Daphne are not related, and Daphne gave Bloom the Flame.



** In season 8, Valtor wasn't really destroyed when Bloom extinguished his fire, in spite of it being described as "[[NeverSayDie putting out his life force]]", and Icy is apparently the princess of a realm called Dyamond and has a little sister named Sapphire, and isn't actually related to Darcy and Stormy, despite them having been confirmed to be [[SameSexTriplets triplets]] by the creator of the show long ago, and Trix calling themselves sisters, and the Winx addressing them as sisters since the beginning of the series.

** This is basically how Enchantix is earned in the third season. To earn it, the Winx have to save someone from their realm, even if it means providing great risk for themselves. Bloom is the only exception to this, earning hers through pure force of will, thus resulting in it being incomplete. This lasts until she saves Domino at the end of the first movie.

** At the end of season four, the Winx are back in their Enchantix forms. It remains to be seen if that was an error, but in the very least, they're still Believix fairies in ''Magical Adventure'' and the beginning of season 5. Like with Nabu, it's probably an art error

*** Stella was originally "the fairy of the sun and moon" because of her parents, the sun king Radius and the moon queen Luna. But due to the fact she ''[[WhatHappenedToTheMouse pretty much never]]'' uses powers about the moon, Nickelodeon named her "the fairy of the shining sun." Yet, in season three, Countess Cassandra tells Chimera she would make "a better princess of the sun and moon" than Stella would.

* SeriesFauxnale: The first movie, ''Secret of the Lost Kingdom'', was meant to be the series' grand finale as it tied up plot threads, involved saving Domino, Bloom's parents, Bloom earning a complete Enchantix and becoming a guardian fairy, and Sky becoming King of Eraklyon and proposing to Bloom. But since the series became a CashCowFranchise, it was renewed for a fourth season and continued on from there.

It ''does'' feture a the characters fighting the BiggerBad and serves as a WhamEpisode that ''drastically'' changes the status quo.

Towards the end of the season, the witches turn out be...not exactly evil...with no explanation as to exactly what sets them apart from fairies anyway. In general, the witches except the Trix slowly got phased out of the show.
