Anime Princess Tropes

Shy Anime Princess GIF The basic definition of "princess" is simple: a female member of a royal family, especially a daughter or granddaughter of a king or queen. Some princesses were born with the title, some marry into it, and others earn the name for themselves through their own actions.

However, anime princesses in particular seem to be inclined to do great things, oftentimes heavily involving themselves in danger in order to make the world a better place.

Given their nobility and heroism, our anime princesses are often graced with a little more of a dignified personality and attire than a lot of other types of anime girls. Sorry perverts.
