Worst Disney Princesses

Which one is the most conceited, selfish, ugly, horrible, self-centered princess?
The Top Ten
1 Aurora Aurora is a fictional character from the popular Disney Film, Sleeping Beauty and the 2015 Live Action Release, Maleficent. She is commonly known as Sleeping Beauty and is one of the group Disney Princesses. She is a unique Disney Princess as in her film, Sleeping Beauty, she has a total of 18 minutes ...read more.

Alright. Aurora is not my fave but people are super harsh towards her. First of all she was CURSED even if she full out knew what would happen there was nothing she could do, she was physically being controlled. Prince Phillip would've fallen to the same spell if it was cast on him. Getting mad at her for falling under a spell is like getting mad at someone who got date raped. At the end of the day, it is the VILLAINS fault. Stop blaming the victim. Not cool. Anyway, on top of that people say she has no personality. Really? So when I picture a princess with no personality I think of someone who sits around and drools all day. Aurora doesn't do that. Aurora is kind, dramatic, romantic, dutiful, loyal, and hardworking (she's seen to be picking berries and when task of princess falls on her she doesn't shirk her duties...unlike some princesses...Ariel...) do we get a lot of screen time, no. But again not her fault. Also I think aurora is very brave. Aurora obviously had dreams of ...more

At least Snow White had a personality. Although I don't like her voice, she was more than just a dreamer. She's helpful, optimistic and caring. Aurora doesn't have any personality at all. I don't hate her, nor do I dislike her but she's so bland. She's an incredibly boring character. She does have a fantastic opera voice but that's pretty much the only redeeming quality she has. Philip on the other hand, is the first male Disney character to have a REAL personality. He's not one-note like Snow White's prince and Cinderella's prince. He's witty, down to earth, kind, and somewhat sarcastic. Compared to Aurora, he's a much better character. He's also the first to actually KILL a villain. None of the other characters before him did that. In order of my favourite princesses best to worst are:
(I would put Mulan first if she was a princess but she actually isn't. She's a warrior)
1. Belle
2. Rapunzel
3. Ariel
4. Jasmine
5. Cinderella
6. Tiana
7. Snow White
8. ...more

I do get why people like Aurora. She's optimistic, kind, and loving - but she's definitely not one of my favorites. I'm not trying to disrespect anyone who likes her, because they do have good reasons for it. But I don't like her because for three reasons-
1. She is very bland. And people say Pocahontas is bland! Aurora has no personality other than being a complete Mary Sue.
2. She has no character development. She starts out as being a kind, sweet, innocent girl. What does she end with? A kind, sweet, innocent girl. Correct me if I'm wrong, because I haven't seen Sleeping Beauty in forever, but she has no character development whatsoever.
3. She does very little in her movie. If I am correct, Aurora has EIGHTEEN LINES. And she's the main character! All she really does is sing about her prince.
She did have great potential in her movie - she actually handled the situation where she had to leave the forest and go to the castle. She could've easily ran away, but she chose ...more

Like everybody else pointed out, Aurora has no characteristic or admirable personality! Literally all she does is sing opera, dance around like a five year old and sleep. The real action is between the evil witch and the prince. For once the princes in Disney movies don't just dance in castles, run around on their horses, and charm girls with their good looks. I don't want to be a completely rude person, but Aurora really does nothing.
"Ok little animal friends, I'm going to lay down and sleep. Of course my darling Prince Phillip will do all the saving, and I'll just enjoy life in my bed."

2 Ariel Princess Ariel is a fictional character and the title character of Walt Disney Pictures' 28th animated film The Little Mermaid.

Ariel is definitely the worst. She has no respect for her family and is only 16 years old when she decides to leave everything for a man she has never met in a foreign land. She signs a contract with a person who she knows to have done terrible things to her kingdom, which sacrifices her voice, family, friends and home for a man who ends up being seduced by someone else! Her decision was so bad she almost got her father killed and, after he saves the day, he sees her off and nobody even cares about what just happened to him or how it will effect his life. She faces no consequences and still gets what she wants that caused all the trouble in the first place. The worst!

Ariel should definitely be first. No doubt. I won't deny The Little Mermaid changed a whole new generation for Disney and I definitely won't deny that Ariel was the first ever Disney princess to have a full fleshed character. But that still doesn't excuse for her being a terrible role model. She's a royal princess who has a really loving father, sisters, friends and family who would do anything to protect her, she has everything she could ask for, yet she whines and complains for something she can't have. Also, why on earth would she be so interested in humans when she knows perfectly well that her mother was killed by one of their ships? Her biggest down point is her obsession with Eric. She doesn't even know him yet she says she loves him and wants to be with him. What the hell? She's lucky Eric was a kind person, otherwise she could have been dealing with a serial killer or a rapist. Not just that, she actually gets AWARDED in the end, and she really didn't deserve it. She just put ...more

I would have had far more respect towards Ariel if she regretted her actions at the end of the film, apologised to her family and decided to go back to them instead of staying with Eric. And also, if she got the chance to actually know Eric first. It would have also been a lot better if Ursula made Ariel transform into Vanessa instead and take her voice and Eric is looking for Ariel but thinks she is a different person (which she is but in disguise) and then Ursula puts a spell on Eric and then she disguises herself as someone else and then Ariel transforms back into herself and finds out Eric doesn't love her after all. So in theory, she would have had the chance to know Eric and she wants to spend time with him on land, but Eric doesn't know it's her. That would have been a much better story.

If you've seen the third movie, you'd know that Ariel just selfish because, like in the original, she ran away crying cause she didn't get what she wanted. Sure it was to bring music back but no need to do the same thing again honey, and over a guy. Just face the facts that humans killed your mother, yet you fall in love with one. But apparently he's beautiful and handsome and worth saving. But what I'm complaining about is the fact that she is literally using her appearance to try and woo him which is terrible to teach kids. She changed everything about herself to try and get someone to fall in love with her by using her appearance. Sure it's a good movie that I love, but sends a terrible message.

3 Merida Princess Merida is a fictional character from Pixar's first ever Disney Princess film, Brave. She is a talented archer who wishes that she were not destined to become the Elegant Queen of Dun Broch. She is forced into a marriage betrothal by her mother, with whom she has a very negative relationship. ...read more.

"It's not fair! "
Well, princess, not everything is fair. This girl is so pathetic. I mean she just doesn't want to marry a prince. Fine. I don't blame her, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't get all emotional. It's literally her entire fault her mom even got turned into a bear. War could've happened. Her mother could've ended up dead. She was so obsessed with herself. She's like a teenager or something and yet she can't think of a better way to reason with her mother and explain herself. If she was seven years old, that could be an excuse but she's not. She's about sixteen or seventeen.
I do have to give her credit for being so...athletic. She also inspires people to reach for their dreams, but one thing should always be remembered: Don't be as self centered as Merida and listen to your parents little children.

She is a spoiled brat who doesn't wanna learn about how to be a good queen and manners she can't just sit back and relax, and do what she's supposed to for once. She nearly collapsed her country's economy just so she could get her way and she has no personality other than bossy, impatient, and disobedient. She has an annoying accent and I ugly. I hate her hair and face and how she's always yelling.

God. She's basically Mulan and Katness Everdeen put together but her hair is red and curly. Merida is also boring. She should be number one. And I don't mind that Snow White is number one, she is my favorite Disney princess, but I don't mind. But there is one stupid reason why she is number one, Her voice. Come on people! Think about the personality! Don't hate her because of her vocals! Hate her for a GOOD reason!

In her defense, she had no idea that crazy old witch lady was going to turn her mother into a bear. I can see self centered a little, but she was brave(Hence the name of the movie) enough to go and defeat the man eating bear that everyone has been trying to kill for the last who-knows-how-many years! And not all princesses have to be as pretty as a supermodel. Can you say stereotypical?

4 Snow White Snow White is a fictional character from Disney's first ever film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves . She is Disney's first ever Disney Princess and is the only Disney Princess to have her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame .

So tired of how the world is today! Who cares if Snow White isn't a role model, she is a kid I mean she is 14! She is the ideal fairytale princess, she is naive but she is kind and caring, two qualities most people today lack! Lay off her, while she isn't my favourite, I still love her for her goodness and purity. People need to understand that fairytales have been around since time began, stop complaining about the fairytale formula. It was always the Prince's role in the story to save his princess. I am not a feminist I am a humanist which is better, equality for all! But stop demanding all these empowered feminist girls for once. There is nothing wrong with sitting down and watching a man save his woman, who the hell cares! Its magical all the same! Just enjoy the films, stop looking for reasons to bitch and moan, Disney films create magic in our already horrible world, stop dissing the magic!

I don't dislike any of the princesses, but Snow White has to be my least favourite. All the princesses are meant to be role models and she doesn't set a good example at all. Wait for someone to save you and take food from dodgy looking strangers. I know it's because that's one of her flaws - she's really naive and gullible and I understand that, but she's very passive and just sits around waiting for someone to save her. The dwarves's cottage was in the middle of nowhere, the Prince wouldn't have found her there if he hadn't heard that she got poisoned by the apple. Also I don't like her voice. It's far too squeaky. She also acts like Little Miss Innocent all the time which comes off as contrived. I'm not saying she's a terrible character, but she is not top 10 worthy in my book.

Snow white is the best! she will always be my favorite! people hate her because shes "not a role model", but she is! She is kind, gentle and caring, and most of the people these days hate her for some odd reason! snow white and I are practically twins! she is a fairytale princess for crying out loud! In a fairytale, the prince always saves the princess! It may not be the case nowadays, but that's no reason to hate snow white! I still don't understand the people who say Elsa is amazing and Belle is perfect! Snow white is the first Disney princess! Disney wouldn't be Disney without her! Ah I love her and always will. HATERS GONNA HATE!

How can people dislike this sweet princess? It's true, she doesn't fight, doesn't rescue her prince, falls in love at first sight, and lets a creepy old woman into her house, but what's wrong with that? She's a gentle, loving,
Mother-like lady who's first instinct is to take care of those weaker than herself. She isn't mean or sarcastic.
THE WORST PRINCESS IS ELSA. The exact opposite of Snow White. No right, no wrong, no rules for her? Really?

Only good princesses:
Snow White

Mulan's fun, though. Just discontented to be a woman!

5 Cinderella Princess Cinderella is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 12th animated feature film Cinderella and its sequels Cinderella II: Dreams Come True and Cinderella III: A Twist in Time.

Cinderella isn't the worst, but she definitely isn't my favorite. The mice are the real heroes of the story. I just feel like she should've gotten to know the prince before he just carried her off to his glittering castle.

Um, what was she supposed to do, other than be a servant to her stepfamily? Standing up to them would probably mean getting kicked out onto the streets where she'd probably either starve or freeze to death (or become a prostitute, you know). You do realize this movie probably took place 150 years ago, right? Anyway, at least by obeying Lady Tremaine, Cinderella gets food, a roof over her head, a bed, a dresser, all of which would be luxuries in her circumstances.

Cinderella just wanted to go to the ball and was very grateful for the night she had, she wasn't looking for a prince for god's sake, she was looking for ONE single free night. She's not my favourite princess but I don't hate her, I quite like her actually, it's just that most people misunderstand her and don't realize that Cinderella happened in a whole different era from us. Things were different back then so stop hating on her.

I don't think Cinderella should be in this list, because first of all if you really paid attention to the movie, ( its pretty subtle) she taught children and adults to be the bigger person. She never whined even when things were unfair, she only gave up in the middle when she did everything she could and yet they ripped her dress to shreds. The only thing she ever wanted yet again taken away from her.

6 Belle Belle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 30th animated feature film Beauty and the Beast (1991) and in the live action remake Beauty and the Beast (2017). Belle is the intelligent and selfless young daughter of an inventor who does not conform to the normal ways of her small ...read more.

Has it ever occurred to anyone that she is amazing princess? She is actually very humble and innocent. Actually just a thought, but had it ever occurred to anyone that she lives in the outskirts of her 'little town' because she and her father are outcasts. Different from all the rest of the townspeople. The people call her unusual, odd. And she is and she is proud of it. Girls in the town throw themselves at Gaston like he's the last man on Earth, but she doesn't care. She wants independence. She wants to make the most of life. She READS while other girls do the trivial everyday tasks that are usually housework. She wants to break the chain, be different, find love without being forced into it. (*cough* Gaston *cough*). She fell in love with the beast for the person within him, not for his looks. She rescued her father. For goodness sake she stood up to the townspeople. Can Belle get credit for that? She's outgoing, brave, innocent, daring. So yeah. End of argument.

She thinks shes the best because she looks the most beatiful. No way to teach children. by the way everyone is beatiful in there own way

I can't stand her. Belle walks around her town singing a dumb song about how "provincial" it all is, and how "bored" she is with her surroundings. Honestly, who cares how bored you are? If you're THAT BORED, why don't you get up off of your butt, read fewer "stories about disguised princes and daring sword fights," and, you know, ACTUALLY... go SEEK that adventure you claim you want to have? Because who goes around an GIVES people an adventure like it was a McDonald's order? Belle sounds like she just put in a McDonald's order for a Big Mac "with a side of adventure fries." Uh-huh. And then, after Belle GETS said adventure involving "the prince in disguise that she supposedly LOVED reading about," she turns wimpy, weepy, nosy, and when standing in front of an angry mob--- pretty much a betrayer. Yes. I said it. Belle betrays the beast/prince by giving away his face with that magic mirror, and tipping off his location to Gaston ( her ...more

She may be kind and selfless but she's by far, the laziest princess ever. All she does is read. Snow White and Cinderella were forced to work under their Stepmother. And they worked hard for their efforts. Ariel wanted to learn about different cultures on land, Jasmine fought for her independence, Mulan saved China. What does Belle do? Read. Fairytales. Yeah, that's REALLY smart. She did save her father, but if that had never happened, she would have no life at all. All the other Princesses did something to move forward. Belle is extremely overrated. She does not deserve all the praise.

7 Pocahontas Pocahontas is a title character in Disney's 33rd animated feature film Pocahontas, and its direct-to-video sequel Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World.

Pocahontas. She is one of the 3 princess to be a racial representative. Same with Mulan and Tiana. I think they don't deserve to be here. MULAN: SHE LEAVES HER FAMILY LIKE ARIEL: Well, I respect that but Mulan left for a good cause, Saving her country. Well,Ariel left for a man. Tiana: she is so greedy just for a restaurant. Well, I also respect you but Tiana herself works so hard to earn money and to make her dream come true.

Pocahontas is a beautiful disney film and princess. She saved the life of a strangers just to make peace with the foreigners. Also to save the life of the man whom she loved. She was a brave and truly courageous young woman.

I love her so much and I think that she is brave, adventureous, and lovebale. People hates her because she is Indian... HUUUh learn about culture people. Imagine you were Indian and you read about India being insulted... some people are so mean...Note: I am not Indian but I love India

Pocahontas is one of my favorites. Well I will wonder why Elsa, Anna, Merida, Tiana, Mulan, Rapunzel, and Cinderella are on this list

8 Jasmine She is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 31st animated feature film Aladdin (1992).

Honestly, I feel that this character is a terrible influence on kids; she's suppose to be 15 or 16 years old, and she tries Seduce a what, 40-60 year old man? To save the world no doubt, a woman has to sell her body... Really? Unfortunately, this is how the story is told.

There also seems to be a misconception of equality; while there is an element present to fight for one's own voice, the "I am not a prize to be one," she controls all of the guys:
1) They're like "I didn't say anything princess, it was him" lolXD
2) Her father easily changes the laws, it was never really a problem, just a daddy-daughter thing, where the dad gives in yet again.
3) As previously mentioned, as a teenager she controls an on man though sex.

We already know that women are strong people, I want to be on equal terms with women, and not have to take a submissive role; however, this type of character and scenario has yet to be analyzed thoroughly, and in the future, we might find ...more

I hate the movie Aladdin...but I hate Jasmine more! What a terrible person she is, while the people in her kingdom struggle, children are going hungry this privileged whiny brat sooks because she has duties and hasn't done anything on her own. Awful human being, she is the worst princess in my opinion. To me the greatest Disney female is Esmeralda! Hey jasmine try being Esmeralda, who lives on the streets and everyday faces social and racial discrimination but still tries to better the world and fight for equality in her film. Jasmine sucks!

Jasmine is one of my favorite princesses. Why?. that's's becsause she has a really strong character. She is bossy, but also kind, beautiful, lovely voice, brave. She is a perfect princess. I mean Alaaddin is one of the most hit Disney movies. The movie is a fantastic one with the story of the lamp and magic carpet and the cave of wonders. Not forgeting the best Disney princess song (for me) A WHOLE NEW WORLD. It is special because Aladdin sings with her on the flying magic carpet... And I think a whole new world is way more better than Let it go.

Sorry guys, but... QUIT DUMPING ON JASMINE! We have to keep in mind that this movie is set a long time ago in Arabia. Aladdin is one of my favorite princess movies, along with EVERY OTHER MOVIE ON THIS LIST! Quit ruining my childhood. Jasmine was unfortunate in that her daddy can't deal, but whatever...

9 Tiana Princess Tiana of Maldonia is a fictional main character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 49th animated feature film The Princess and the Frog.

Why the he'll is she on this list!? She worked hard for her spot unlike those other stupid Disney princesses who just got their Prince charming with looks. Tiana is my most FAVE Disney princess, she doesn't deserve to be here! She is a and independent woman who followed her dream and worked hard throughout her life! THOSE other Disney princesses all had the same dream, "To marry a Prince Tiana never thought of marrying a Prince before, until she met one, but she didn't drool over him unlike other Disney princesses, she put in his place and showed that she makes her choices and that she wasn't put on this planet to be some guys trophy. Tiana is a true role model and she was also the first black Disney princess! THOSE WHO think that she is terrible, you're MAD!

Why is Tiana even on this list!? She shows young girls that you have to work for what you want, and it will not just fall right on to your lap, unlike most Disney princesses seem to think. Personally she is one of my favorite princesses.

I love Tiana I do not think she should be on this list! She is very hard working! And there are lots of moments when I almost cried in the movie. And definitely when ray the fire fly dies.

I agree with everyone. She is a hard working woman who had a pretty tough childhood, having to deal with hers father's death and all. And I'm not just saying this because my name is Tiana

10 Mulan Fa Mulan, a character inspired by an actual historic figure is a character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 36th animated feature film Mulan, as well as its sequel Mulan II.

Why the heck is Mulan on here!?! I mean she took over her father's place in the army because he was very I'll and old. AND SHE SAVED China FOR GOODNESS SAKES! SHE SAVED AN ENTIRE COUNTRY! And who cares if she isn't a princess, does she have to be? NO! She at least worked hard and fought for her country and family. While other princesses are finding the perfect sized shoes, eating a rotten apple, and sleeping for one hundred years. Mulan is amazing and a pure hearted woman who doesn't deserve all the negativity from all of you guys!

Okay I love Mulan so much, and she saved a country (China). So why do people hate her... Is it because she is Chinese... I am wondering why but I am guessing its because of the beauty.. OKAY..so.. I mean... why in the world do people love queen Elsa more than Mulan are you kidding me. Ill tell you why people loves Elsa more its just because she is beautiful and has magical ice power... Mulan deserves way more than being treated in that way... So cry a river build a bridge get over it

What the heck?! Why is Mulan even on this list? She's not a princess, she's a hero! Come on! She saved an entire country! And by the way, Merida does NOT DESERVE TO BE ON THIS LIST! And seriously, Belle? Who's the genius who made this list anyway?

Mulan is awesome. She's not insanely stupid like everyone else on this list. She saved a whole country! And what did the others do? Elsa almost killed her sister and froze Arendelle to death, Ariel abandoned her family for a guy she didn't know, and Jasmine is a bad influense on kids. Get yourself together.

The Contenders
11 Moana Moana is the protagonist of Disney's 2016 animated feature film of the same name. Born on the island village of Motunui, Moana is the daughter of Chief Tui and Sina, with an inherited love for the seas and voyaging. When her island becomes endangered, Moana is chosen by the ocean to journey across the ...read more.

I love Moana! I haven't seen the movie, but the trailers have told me enough. She's supposed to show kids that princesses can come from anywhere, which is something that Disney has been paying attention to lately. I think she is beautiful and can't wait for the movie to come out!

Moana isn't bad... BUT... My problem is she is too much like the recent Disney princesses, quirky and awkward. Try something diffrent Disney... I feel like she didn't have any charter delvopmemt

What the heck! Moana risked her life to save her island and find Maui! She shouldn't be on this list! That's stupid!

Why is Mona even on his list? Hello? Did she or did she not do a heroic shapeshifter's job? Moana can not be here!

12 Rapunzel Rapunzel is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 50th animated feature film Tangled, and its short sequel Tangled Ever After. She is the tenth Disney Princess, the first Disney Princess to be CGI-animated, and the first Disney Princess to have freckles or green eyes.

Hear me out for a second, I don't hate Rapunzel. I like her a lot actually, but there is only so much I can take of her before I get a little annoyed. There are times when she gets to be too nice or too loving and it just makes me roll my eyes. I love how she has spunk, but so do many of the other princesses. I feel like because she was the first cgi 3d princess, that makes her best of the best. Also, people say she has the worst life of them all, she doesn't. Elsa had to live in fear for her whole life, Cinderella was a slave since she was what, 5? Merida was forced to be something she isn't but still followed the rules, Aurora found she was a princess after living who knows how many years in a small cottage. Okay I'm done ranting


1 Too different to the story
2 Rapunzel and her iguana are literally killers. Sure, Mother Gothel is evil, but she could have just kept her in the tower and bring her food and water,

But she treated her well, as a mother, and the iguana tripped Mother Gothel and killed her, and after all that, Rapunzel cares more about some robber!
3 She's a brat

What is Rapunzel doing on the no no list? She is my top three-four favorite princess! She is one of a kind, she finds ways to have fun and put a smile on her face even though she is in a tower for seventeen long years, and she chases her dreams. She doesn't care about being pretty or about true love. She lives in her own little world. I 100% agree... Rapunzel is way better than Anna and Elsa. ALSO FOR THOSE RAPUNZEL FANS OUT THERE, THERE IS A PROGRAM ON DISNEY CHANNEL CALLED TANGLED THE SERIES. IT'S AWESOME. IF U WOULD LIKE WATCH IT.

. I am so irritated about Elsa being better to people more than Rapunzel... I mean... Elsa has white boring hair... I mean she is a queen or a princess or whatever she is, but why white hair, is it because she is very old? I Mean Rapunzel has blonde golden long hair...People these days are insane with Queen Elsa which is an idiot thing to do. And by the way Rapunzel's long blonde glowing hair is much more graceful than ice out of hand... so duuuhhh.
