These characters stand above those denominated as "Heroines" because heroines do not have any chance of actually joining the franchise. Most recently, the line-up has expanded to include Tiana , Rapunzel and Merida after the successes of their respective films. On the road, she meets the Evil Queen Regina and learns that true love's kiss will break any curse, including the one on Rumplestiltskin. She is strong-willed and her preferred weapon is a frying pan. As the next-in-line for the Arendelle throne, she stands to eventually become Queen Regant in her own right after the death or abdication of her sister Queen Elsa. Mulan was neither royal by birth or marriage, but is still included in the line-up due to her high status by saving China and receiving grace from the Emperor.
