The most underrated of them all yet to me, the best
A lot of people call the classics Mary-Sues and I strongly disagree, and I have much evidence to prove that they are far from perfect. But hey, their opinion, I'll respect that. Here we go...
Here is why they are underrated
3)Need a Prince for rescue
They are feminine, yes, but that is not bad in any way. They are Mary-Sues? No way. They need a prince for rescue, they are capable of many things by themselves.
Starting out with the first and my favorite out of the classics....
I think she is the most underrated out of all the princesses. In areas like beauty (she's my prettiest), personality, voice and so much more. Especially personality, she isn't JUST SWEET, she has more variety then that. In fact she uses her sweetness to charm others, like being able to stay with the dwarfs. She's bossy/sassy, manipulative, intelligent and flirty.
Bossy/sassy- she snaps at the dwarfs to go clean their hands, which I personally love.
Manipulative- using her charm and strength she persuades the dwarfs into letting her stay.
Intelligent- Snow White is very underrated in this department, she manages to run away from the Huntsman (as I like to call him Bob), she runs away from Bob under his command and makes her way through the forest. Like I said before, she knows how to use what she has to survive. She uses her charm for shelter and I find that impressive.
Flirty- Like I said, this is pointing out how her personality isn't just sweet. Did you see how she batted her eyes and closed the curtains on the prince?
Snow White is considered the most weak out of all the Disney Princesses. Let me repeat, she uses her charm and mind for shelter and she's bossy. I don't know how's she's weak if she managed to find her way out of a freaky forest and repeating again- find shelter.
Again on the intelligence:
She's considered dumb because she ate the apple...ahem. Not to offend you in any way but can I just say how ridiculous that sounds? It's like when you're watching a horror movie, "No, don't go in there! No no no! Aww, why didn't she listen?" I can see that you're just worked up in the moment but really? Can Snow White hear you? The Old Hag was being pretty manipulative and wouldn't leave Snow alone, she had to do something. Snow White is too sweet (I'm not saying she's JUST SWEET) to let an old woman with a hurt back just wonder around.
In conclusion to that, Snow White is very intelligent, not a Mary-Sue and has much more variety then JUST SWEET.
Cinderella doesn't need much backing up since she is one of the most popular princesses of all time but I still have some points to make out for those who think she's weak. I'm not as crazy for Cinderella as I am for Snow White, I'll admit that. But how could some say she's would be weak? Well I kind of have to side with the defense both ways for this right now.
Why I think she is weak:
Let my rephrase, why I think she isn't as brave or risky as others. She actually stayed with her step mother and sisters. Being forced to be a maid, sleeping in the attic. She should have stood up for herself or called for help. But she just stayed at home and did what she was told with an entire world of possibilities.
She decided to deal with it. That's pretty impressive, she was a dreamer. She never gave up on hope and always trusted in God (I'm assuming, doesn't she look like a Christian to you?). She couldn't run away, no money, no food, no shelter. At least she was being provided with something. And she had plenty of farm friends she wouldn't want to leave. During that time period, running away meant scraps and rags. She's sassy, sweet, dreamy, brave and very romantic
She's sassy- like Snow White, in the morning when she came to feed the chickens she snapped at Bruno (Mars) for dreaming about chasing Lucifer.
Sweet- Which again I find impressive because she was indifferent to this cat. He was mean and rude, trying to eat her friends and get her into trouble.
Dreamy- this one was very obvious, she's sings about dreaming and wishes and always hopes for a better life for her. But at the same time she can always make the best out of things.
Brave- She can put of with Tremaine, Anastasia and Drizella, she is most definitely not going to take any of their horrid remarks, near the end she sticks up to Tremaine.
Romantic- Like dreamy, this was pretty obvious, she wants to escape and find her prince. Now this isn't her only goal, this is just a branch of the whole tree.
In conclusion to this Cinderella is definitely most NOT weak and she DID do something to help herself.
She's very underrated in personality. She didn't get much screen time and whatnot but there still is a personality behind that. I personally think she has one of the most interesting personalities out of all the Disney Princesses. She's a romantic dreamer and most definitely not a TOTAL damsel on distress.
With the complaints on Aurora I've heard:
Not enough screen time
Damsel in Distress
Fell in love with a total stranger
Not enough screen time, is that something I can argue with, no. It's a very popular opinion, almost a fact. But then again it cannot be presented as one. That isn't something that interferes with her personality though. Yes, you don't see her a often as the others but I cannot see how this is an interference.
Too feminine- that is totally sexist! Just because of mildly liking to wonder off and dream or think of romance doesn't give you a real good reason to dislike her.
Mary-Sue- Nope...that word is being thrown around way too much, Aurora has funky hair for one (that's just my opinion but for the record I still love it) and she was inconsiderate with the fairies warnings.
Damsel in Distress- Was she supposed to magically wake herself up? I find this almost as sexist as the Too Feminine complaint.
Fell in love with a total stranger- actually they met as children and in dreams and visions. They were already meant for each other so I could not see the problem.
Specially dedicated to Siliverrose1991 and Dclairmont for being some of the biggest Classic Disney Princess defenders.
In conclusion I think the classics are the smartest group of Disney Princesses
