The beloved Disney Princesses undergo a more humorous take in Amy Mebberson's Pocket Princesses, so let's meet them:

Snow White
Remember, you're the one who can fill the world with sunshine.

She's the first of the Disney Princesses, and the Fairest of Them All. She's quite the old-fashioned goody two-shoes, but at the same time, she's an endless fountain of sweetness and light who aims to brighten everyone's day in her own unassuming manner.

  • All Loving Heroine: She likes everything!
  • The Baby of the Bunch: She's the youngest princess at 14 years old, and the most innocent.
  • Does Not Like Spam: She hates apples.
  • Character Exaggeration: It must be remembered that in her movie, she was the Team Mom of the Seven Dwarfs, and even asserted some authority over them. Here, with no dwarfs to take care of and several older and savvier princesses about, her childlike innocence is on full display.
  • {{Flanderization:}} Snow in the old movie was sheltered and naive as a result of that, but in the PP comics, she's depicted as childlike and downright gullible.

  • Friend to All Living Things: She has an alliance of Woodland Creatures at her beck and call. If it's a living thing, she'll try to make friends with it, even the weirder magical beings that disturb or annoy the other princesses like Carpet and Olaf.
  • Incorruptible Pure Purity Personified: Her canon self is the Image Source. It's telling that she's the only princess without a humorous Dark Secret.
  • Kiddie Kid: In the comic, she displays a lot more childlike mannerisms, even more so than the other Ingenues of the Royal Court.

Have faith in your dreams and someday your rainbow will come smiling through...

Once Upon a Time, Cindy was the mistreated maid of her Wicked Stepmother. One Fairy Godmother, Prince Charming, and loose Glass Slipper later, she's living Happily Ever After. Even so, all that maidwork has left her a major Neat Freak, and so she's not too dainty to resume her cleaning duties; someone has to keep the place tidy, after all.

Yet I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem...

To keep her safe from the cruel Maleficent, Aurora was raised in a garden under the alias "Briar Rose" by a trio of well-meaning yet under-qualified fairies. As such, she's a passionate gardener... when she isn't passed out cold. It seems that although True Love's Kiss has broken her curse of Deep Sleep, she still has occasional spells of narcolepsy.

You want thingamabobs? I’ve got twenty! But who cares? No big deal, I want more!

The proactive and petulant youngest princess of Atlantica, Ariel harbored a fascination with the surface world that led her to strike a Deal with the Devil, finally gaining human legs at the cost for her voice. Whether or not she appears in human or mermaid form, Ariel's an excitable and curious girl who's always looking to add a new trinket to her collection.

Here's where she meets Prince Charming, but she won't discover that it's him 'till chapter three!

As a young lady from a backwards village, those who truly know Belle can see her finest trait is her mind, fueled by an intense love of reading. Unflappable enough to tame a troubled, unruly Beast, Belle's one of a few who can keep a level head in the Royal Court, though that's not to say she's without her own eccentricities.

  • Bookworm: Her love of books and reading is her most well-known trait. Indeed, she's often seen with her nose in a book.

I'm like a shooting star, I've come so far, I can't go back to where I used to be!

The princess of the exotic kingdom of Agrabah, Jasmine possesses the strength of will and kindness of heart to choose life with a generous Street Urchin rather than a hoity-toity Arranged Marriage. Still, she's not above enjoying the finer things, which in her case include a living carpet and a large tiger.

But I know every rock and tree and creature has a life, has a spirit, has a name!

She's The Chief's Daughter and Indian Maiden of the Powhatan tribe with the Blithe Spirit that brought peace between her people and the Englishmen. Able to magically commune with wildlife, spirits, and those of foreign tongue, Poca's known for her love of nature and (surprisingly dry witted) playful soul.

How 'bout a girl who's got a brain, who always speaks her mind?

The noble yet awkward Fa Mulan wanted nothing more than to do right by her family, wound up disguising as a man to serve in the war against the Huns, and became the savior of China. Nonetheless, she remains a loyal Humble Heroine who enjoys moments of tranquility in between her warrior pursuits.

I've worked hard for everything I've got, and that's the way it's supposed to be!

While she's officially the princess of some place called Maldonia, Tia prefers to be known for her success as a New Orleans restauranteur, having honed her talent for cooking since she was little. One of the more sensible, down-to-earth princesses, she strongly believes in the value of hard, honest work with no cheats or shortcuts.

And then I'll read a book, or maybe two or three, I'll add a few new paintings to my gallery...

The missing princess of Corona has spent almost all her life kept away from The Outside World, but now that she's finally free, she's eager to go on adventures and slate her long-growing curiosity. With, her long magical hair, childlike sence of wondrous verve, and killer frying pan arm, Rapunzel causes the most hijinx among the princesses.

Misty mountains sing and beckon, lead me out into the light!

The proud princess of the Clan DunBroch, Merida's as rebellious as a princess can be, being a forceful, impetuous tomboy with a passion for archery and other unladylike interests. She may have matured a bit from her unruly and stubborn beginnings, but she'll never stop being a tough-as-nails adventurer who stands out the most among the Royal Court.

I don't if I'm elated or gassy, but I'm somewhere in that zone...

The younger and bubblier of Arendelle's royal sisters, Anna's awkward, impulsive, and a hopeless romantic, but she more than makes up for that with her spirited determination and loving heart. After all, it's those qualities that got her sister Elsa out of her icy shell after so many years, and the two are an inseparable pair.

  • Adorkable: It's debatable whether or not she could beat Rapunzel in an Adorkable contest.
  • Big Eater: All the princesses are shown eating or cooking, but Anna takes the cake as eating right out of the tray is shown as her "worst habit".
  • Birds of a Feather: When she's not with Elsa, she'll pal around with Ariel, Rapunzel, and/or Merida.
  • Fiery Redhead In Green: Not to the extent of Merida (She's strawberry blond and prefers olive green, in contrast to Merida's bolder colors), but she definitely counts.
  • The Ingenue / Kiddie Kid: Having had a similar childhood as Rapunzel, she turned out very playful and spontaneous.
  • Moe Couplet: Her and Elsa, of course. They may have spent the better part of their youth in a kingdom of isolation, but their sisterly love eventually made an open door out of there.
  • Secret Relationship: With Kristoff, though after he housesits for the girls, he has a spread of tea, coffee, and "Smorbrod" (the Danish version of a "open sandwich") ready for them when they come home as well as Sven having "Oaken's Edelweiss bath gel" if they wanted to freshen up before eating.
    'Jasmine: Keep him.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang:
  • Sweet Tooth: Ice cream, chocolate, chocolate-flavored goodies (including "Chunky Monkey" ice cream which has fudge chunks and walnuts in banana ice cream) are what she craves.
    • Corrupt the Cutie: She helps post a poster saying "A vote for Vanellope is a vote for Chocolate." With her having been swayed with a promise of all the "candy" (in Anna's case, chocolates) she could eat.
  • You Need a Breath Mint: She has some fierce morning breath.

I'm never going back, the past is in the past!

While she might be the wickedly talented Snow Queen of Arandelle nowadays, Elsa was initially raised to fear and reject her magical command of ice, and struggled with Pent up Power Incontinence. That all changed thanks to a certain sister showing her The Power of Love. As the elder sister, she's more reserved and regal... typically.

And the call isn't out there at all, it's inside me, it's like the tide, always falling and rising!

As The Chief's Daughter of a Polynesian tribe Born Under the Sail, Moana loves the ocean more than anyone else... probably because she's best friends with it ever since it made her The Chosen One way back when she was a tiny tot. Nowadays, she often has (a small portion of) the Ocean with her and is always up for a challenge.

"Somebody has to save our skins!"

A Long Time Ago, in a Galaxy Far Far Away..., Leia Organa was the princess of Alderaan, a key fighter in the Rebel Alliance, and in her winter years, the general who formed the Resistance. She made cameos every now and then whenever there was Star Wars hyping to be done, and took a liking to the princesses. Upon her untimely passing, she became a Force Ghost and started hanging out with them and offering wisdom more often, enough to be cosidered an unofficial member of the Royal Court.


How well does it match the trope?
