Flaws/Weaknesses

  • The user can be the target of many beings due to their riches and beauty such as dragons and other beasts, rival rulers, greedy/lustful men etc.
  • despite frequent resistance in fantasy a princess should not keep her title when she enters power, the moment she becomes crowned as a monarch she becomes a Queen (in many verses queens are seen as evil or old, while princesses are embodiments of youth and innocence).
  • like all monarch-based archetypes if a society shifts to a system without absolute monarchy a princess has no power, if a society goes even further and removes their monarchy altogether princesses (obviously) cease to exist.
  • some depictions of princesses are regarded as old-fashioned and sexist (the "damsel in distress") - (..this flaw is, however, being corrected and most modern princesses are no longer burdened by this (some do parody it).) .
  • The user might not or might have few friends around their age due to the large gap in social status. 
  • depending on the verse a princess may also be expected to marry a prearranged suitor (often a neighboring kingdom's prince or nobleman), this can be especially troublesome if the suitor is an ill-match for her (or worse still cruel) - this flaw can sometimes be rectified by a sufficiently powerful ruler (such as a Sultan) changing the laws but unfortunately this is not common.
