I think everyone on this site remembers having their first crush on a Disney character. I definitely remember mine, and to be honest, I still kind of have a crush on my favorite Disney guy. So let's get down to it. I won't make a Hottest princes list, I'll just roll their personalities and appearances together and see what comes out. Here are Phantomrose89's Favorite (And Hottest!) Disney Princes.
I know that many of you are surprised to find John Smith this low, because with most of you, he's in the middle. I, personally, dislike him more than I dislike the other princes, purely because he's so mindlessly vapid. There are other princes that have no personality (Charming and Snow Prince, especcially,) but it is because they're given no screentime. John has tons of screentime and still can't muster up anything more than a halfhearted personality. He's not that attractive to me (I've never like blonde men), and his extraordinary blandness just doesn't appeal to me. Thus, John Smith is the lowest of the low (on my list, of course.)
I don't dislike Charming, I just think he didn't get a fair shot at being memorable. He's like a Ken doll leaned up against a bookshelf, waiting patiently to come along and do the necessary wooing. I don't like that he doesn't just man up and go looking for Cinderella himself, but there is one brief moment in which I believe that Charming expresses more personality than John: When the stepsisters are walking toward him and he rolls his eyes, he reveals that there may be a brain in that overly-sculpted head. I like that he got a bit of a personality overhaul in the sequels, but the despite being te classic prince, Charming falls just short of being passable.
Poor, lipsticked guy. He just left the drag show, forgot to take his lipstick off,and happened to stumble onto the underage love of his life. He's got a great voice and a cute (if kind of dimwitted) smile, but just like Charming, ol' Ferdy suffers from too little screentime and a too-obvious love of Maybelleine.
Prince Phillip is an improvement over Charming and Ferdinand, but only vaguely. He's classicly handsome, classicly prince-y, and classicly dull, but he's got a lot more personality than the others on this list. Even the way he talks to his horse reveals that he's a clean-cut, all-around nice guy who just likes to ride around, rescue maidens, and do.... princey things. He's got a nice singing voice too, and every so often Phillip proves that he just may be more than a Ken doll.
Shang is without a doubt the sexiest Disney prince. Oh yeah, as if you can watch him take that shirt off and not wonder why you weren't born a cartoon. However, he suffers from the exact same personality flaw that Mulan suffers from: he's underwritten. It's clear that his honorable, authoritative, and ungodly sexy, but for me, that's not enough to elevate him to anything more than Poster Boy status. Sorry, Shang, but feel free to walk around without your shirt on all the time.
I'll be the first to admit that I'm kind of a cynic when it comes to love and that's my problem with Aladdin. He's a nice kid, and he's reasonably attractive, but that's all he is to me. A nice kid with a lot of baggage. With that said, though, he loves deeply and with the same passionate singlemindedness of a high schooler,and that is still endearing. He and Jasmine have young, intense love. Will their flame burn out? Probably, with time and maturity, but it's fun while it lasts and Aladdin is one of Disney's best male characters.
I'm a girl who loves a man's man, and Eric is a man's man. He fishes, he sails, and he wears a shirt that shows a bit of man cleavage, just because it's the 80s and that's what sexy men do. However, he does have a sensitive side; he also likes romantic boat rides, playing a girly instrument, and frolicking with puppies. He's kind of similar to Philip, in a way. He's a nice guy who needs more screen time.
Prince Naveen brought sexy back to Disney in 2009, and that sexiness hasn't left the building. With his cleft chin and ethnic good looks, Naveen is racially ambiguous, charming, and fun-loving. Is he soulmate material? Definitely not, but I think that not every lover has to be your one and only. Naveen is the type of guy who likes parties, good times, and living the high life, and every once in a while, it's fun to indulge in that sort of life. I also like how he grows up a little by the end. (Granted, I think the complete personality makeover was a little strong.) I don't mind when characters change toward the end; I think all of us grow and change from time to time. If Naveen weren't so darn sexy, he'd be a lot lower, but hey, every girl wants a guy who can show her a good time.
2) Fynn Rider
Disney's latest prince is hilarious, good looking, charismatic, and the ultimate fantasy of every girl who's ever wanted to be saved, AND save the guy in the process. Call me fangirly if you will, but I have no shame: Flynn Rider is a great character with a lot of looks and a lot of jokes, and I do love a funny man. :D
1) The Beast
There's a lot of Beast haters in here, and that's cool with me: that just means there's more of him for me! The Beast (post-transformation) was my first childhood crush. He's dark, he's definitive, and he undergoes a genuine transformation at the end, and I'm not talking about his physical being. His eyes have been opened to what else is out there. We don't know much about him before he met Belle, except that he was a doushe, but we see him grow from a spoiled, lonely soul to a full human being who isn't afraid to sacrifice his own hide for someone else, and that is the sexiest quality of all. :D
