  • Trivia[edit | edit source]

    • Five of the Princess's names are Japanese, each of which have different meanings:
      • Ai translates to "love" (愛).
      • Hikari translates to "light" (光).
      • Hime translates to "princess" (姫). Based on the translation, the name "Princess Hime" means "Princess Princess".
      • Momo translates to "peach" (桃).
      • Yuuki translates to "courage" or "bravery" (勇気).
    • Some of the Princess's names are references to princesses from popular culture:
    • The Princess shares the name Faye with the Dryad.
    • One of the Princess' possible names is Yorai, named for Yorai Omer (aka Yoraiz0r), one of the lead developers of Terraria.
    • The Princess has a unique death message along with the Angler, in which instead of "<name of Princess> was slain..." the message reads "<name of Princess> has left!" This likely implies that she is a child, further supported by her short size. This also means she will not drop a Tombstone when in Hardcore difficulty.
    • The Princess has a Happiness quote for herself: "<name of Princess> the Princess is a little unsettling to be around, but terribly cute!", which cannot be seen in game without third-party software, as it requires the Princess to have another Princess as a neighbor, which is impossible because two of the same NPCs cannot be alive at the same time in normal playthroughs.
    • Along with the Traveling Merchant, Zoologist, and Cyborg, she is among a small group of NPCs who sell an item post-Moon Lord. The Princess's item is a Music Box (which requires the player to defeat Moon Lord after Hardmode has been activated).
    • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Princess: "Shy and innocent, this happy young lady sees the positive in everything, and everybody. She appreciates all of her subjects, from all walks of life."
