1%%˛%% Reworking of Badass Princess done per crowner in Badass Tropes Repair Thread:˛%%˛%%˛˛Badass Princess was an article on here which listed princesses who were "badass." Problem is, everyone had a different definition of badass, so the article eventually just became a list of princesses who did anything vaguely competent.˛˛Since a {{trope}} is supposed to be "storytelling shorthand for a concept," Badass Princess was deemed Administrivia/NotATrope and the page was cut. Here are some other tropes that cover the meaningful things associated with Badass Princess:˛˛* DamselOutOfDistress: A character set up to be a helpless DamselInDistress (a trope long associated with princesses) turns out to be able to save herself.˛* LadyOfWar: A lady who epitomizes elegance and grace who nevertheless can kill with ease.˛* PoliticallyActivePrincess: A princess who is highly involved with diplomatic missions and similar political intrigue.˛* PrettyPrincessPowerhouse: An adorable princess with the aesthetics of a PrincessClassic who unexpectedly is a great fighter.˛* RebelliousPrincess: A princess who hates her title and everything that comes with it, causing her to deliberately go against everything expected of a princess.˛* ReallyRoyaltyReveal: A princess who may do badass things without realizing, or at least without revealing that they're a princess.˛* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: A royal who does any number of notable and useful acts.˛* SilkHidingSteel: A lady who appears, and may genuinely be, demure and gentle but is also cunning and ruthless.˛* TomboyPrincess: A princess who defies the feminine expectations of her title and enjoys being masculine.˛* WarriorPrince: If within the story it is perfectly normal and expected of princesses in that society to be warriors, a princess may be an example of Warrior Prince (or "Warrior Princess" in this case).˛˛----
