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

Shared tropes:

Snow White
There's no use in grumbling when raindrops come tumbling...
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.


Have faith in your dreams and someday your rainbow will come smiling through...
No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true!

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 maid-work 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.

I wonder, I wonder, I wonder why each little bird has a someone...
To sing to, sweet things to, a gay little love melody!

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.

I've got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty, I've got whooz-its and whats-its galore...
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.

Oh, isn't this amazing? It's my favorite part because, you'll see...
Here's where she meets Prince Charming, but she won't discover that it's him 'till chapter three!

As a Spirited 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.

A whole new world, 100,000 things to see...
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.

You think you own whatever land you land on, the Earth is just a dead thing you can claim...
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.

Ancestors, hear my plea:
Help me not to make a fool of me...
and to not uproot my family tree, keep my father standing tall!

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 remember Daddy told me: "Fairy tales can come true"...
You gotta make 'em happen, it all depends on you!

While she's officially the princess of some place called Maldonia, Tia prefers to be known for her success as a New Orleans restaurateur, 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...
I'll play guitar and knit and cook and basically just wonder when will my life begin?

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 sense of wondrous verve, and killer frying pan arm, Rapunzel causes the most hi-jinx among the princesses.

When cold wind is a' calling, and the sky is clear and bright...
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...
'Cause for the first time in forever... I won't be alone!

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".
    • "National Hot Chocolate Day!" (the Jan. 31, 2020 strip) had implied Anna drained a whole lake of hot liquid chocolate before anyone can believe it happened (Elsa warns Anna about her cheek giving her away though).
  • Commonality Connection: When she's not with Elsa, she'll pal around with Ariel, Rapunzel, and/or Merida.
  • Costume Evolution: She updated to her Frozen II look upon the release of said movie.
  • 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. Especially during the 2017 Comic Con, when she caught a guy who'd pointed his cellphone the wrong way...
  • 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. At one point she helps post a poster saying "A vote for Vanellope is a vote for Chocolate", having been swayed with a promise of all the "candy" (in Anna's case, chocolates) she could eat.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Like in canon, sweets and sandwiches. She's seen the most eating out of all the princesses in the strips.
  • You Need a Breath Mint: She has some fierce morning breath.

My power flurries through the air into the ground!
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around,
and one thought crystallizes like an icy blast:
I'm never going back, the past is in the past!

While she might be the wickedly talented Snow Queen of Arendelle 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!
I will carry you here in my heart, you remind me that come what may, I know the way... I am Moana!

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 dispensing wisdom more often, enough to be considered an unofficial member of the Royal Court.

Vanellope Von Schweetz

My heart's in flight and wow, it's a blast!
Feels like my dreams are real at last!

A little infamous "glitch" with a love of sweet high-octane, Vanellope was originally the princess of the Sugar Rush racing game before the usurpation of the wicked King Candy/Turbo led her to convert the title into a presidency. After a trip through cyberspace, she hit it off with the princesses and more or less joined the Royal Court after the release of Ralph Breaks the Internet.

  • Ascended Extra: She made a cameo before joining full-time.
  • Artificial Human: Being a video game character means she's data-and-code rather than flesh-and-blood. Because of this, she cannot consume normal food and is completely unfamiliar with the concept of things growing on their own, among other things.
  • Honorary Princess: Much like Leia, she isn't a part of the actual DP line; but she was the Princess of Sugar Rush in her original movie, and Disney has toyed for years over the idea of including her or not in the line.
  • The Lad-ette: It comes with the territory of being a preteen Sarah Silverman.
  • Modest Royalty: Natch; she wears modern-day casual clothing and canonically befriended the others by introducing them to such garb.
  • Our Presidents Are Different: Her official title, as mentioned above. The lead-up to her joining the group was framed as a tongue-in-cheek presidential campaign (to tie in with the November 2018 election cycle).
  • Tag Along Kid: Literally, for as Snow is young and innocent compared to the other princesses, Vanellope is more energetic and outgoing, reacting to things similarly to a modern day kid.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The tomboy of the group (after Merida) compared to the more feminine princesses.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She loves racing, candy, and hair decorations. In canon she's also fond of crass jokes and Toilet Humor.


How well does it match the trope?
