    Disney Heroines By Category

    Which category does your favorite Disney princess fall under?

    The Damsels in Distress

    Sleeping Beauty literally sleeps through a majority of the movie, waiting for Prince Phillip to come kiss her and awaken her and the kingdom. Talk about a power nap.

    Again, Snow White spends her time either cleaning the house while waiting for the dwarves to come back from work, or sleeping waiting for Prince Charming to come. It seems like she's always waiting on her men.

    Cinderella at least was conscious for the entirety of her film, but she waits for her Fairy Godmother to come help her save the day and then after she runs away from the ball, waits for the Prince to come find her. Emphasis on the word wait.

    The Rebellious Teens

    Ariel falls for a man that her father warns her to stay away from, and then changes her entire world in order to be with him. Her songs are even filled with teen angst about fights with parents.

    Rapunzel is understandably rebelling from her so called "Mother." She runs away and faces every teen girl's inner turmoil of doing what you are told and doing what you want to do.

    Jasmine has a sassy attitude towards pretty much everyone, including her father. Like Rapunzel, she also runs away and fights to get what she wants.

    The Not-So-Fragile

    Mulan technically isn't a Disney Princess, but she might as well be one. She's strong and fights for what she believes in, and isn't afraid to cause a commotion every now and then.

    Although Merida is also somewhat of a rebellious teen, she plays no part in being a fragile-wee princess. She fights a bear, for pete's sake! She fights for her family, with both words and weapons.

    The Rebel-with-a-Cause

    Pocahontas stands up not only against her entire village, but even her father, for what she believes is right. Even when she stands alone, she is stronger than everyone else in the movie, including John Smith.

    Esmerelda is a gypsy running for her life for the majority of the movie. But she firmly stands up for the outcasts, using her courage to defend the rights of everyone.

    The Misunderstood

    Elsa is misunderstood by practically everyone except for her sister, Anna. She is even seen as a villain to some of the characters until she lets it all go and thaws a frozen heart.

    Meg is a character that some people forget about. She might be the most misunderstood of all, with a mysterious past and unfortunate present. She even works for the bad guy, and if that isn't misunderstood then I don't know what is.

    The Awkward and Clumsy

    Jane spends half of the movie getting in fights with monkeys, unsuccessfully climbing through trees, losing her gloves, laughing nervously, etc. She is the definition of awkward.

    Anna is delightfully clumsy and awkward, saying things at inappropriate times and falling throughout the movie. But her quirks only make her more lovable.

    The Ambitious

    Belle is constantly singing about how she wants to have adventure beyond her poor provincial life. She feels like she wants more out of life than what everyone else in her town seems to want, and will be willing to do what it takes to achieve this adventure.

    Tiana is the most driven of all the Disney princesses. She spends her whole like working towards her one goal: her restaurant. Even when other people try to bring her down, she always has confidence that she is almost there.

    So...which Disney Princess were you?

    P.S. I like all of the Disney heroines, even the damsels in distress, so I hope I didn't offend anyone by putting them in a "bad" category!
