Disney’s Princess movies are often some of the most well-known animated films in history. They tell epic tales of love and adventure, and the pairings between the many different princes and princesses have become very iconic. From Prince Charming and Cinderella to Belle and the Beast, these are couples that people know all around the world.
However, while they might suit each other from that particular movie, not all of these relationships are perfect matches. That’s because some of the Disney princes are actually far better suited to different princesses due to their personalities and their traits being a lot more similar.
10 John Smith – Ariel
Ariel is always longing to see what life is like beyond the sea, and while she settles for Eric, who just so happens to be the first person she ever sees, she would actually be better suited to John Smith. Much like Eric, John Smith travels, and that would provide the sense of adventure that Ariel is seeking.
John Smith’s personality also suits the mermaid far more than Eric’s. Ariel is shown to be a very bubbly and talkative person when she’s underwater, and Smith is similar in that regard. He ends up with Pocahontas, who also isn’t as big of a personality as Ariel.
9 Flynn Rider – Jasmine
Flynn Rider and Princess Jasmine are two characters who love to break the rules and go against the normal structures, and that makes them potentially a great pairing. Flynn likes to have fun and is quite a big personality, which is something Jasmine is attracted to, only he doesn’t need a Genie to help him.
Both of these characters live a lie at points, and both are quite emotional when you get to know them, which is something that would likely work well together as a relationship That’s especially true since Jasmine has quite a fiery personality when she wants to, which would match up nicely with Flynn.
8 Li Shang – Pocahontas
Li Shang and Mulan ending up in a relationship make sense, but in reality, Li Shang is actually a little too serious for her. She likes to have fun and not be too stern, which is why he is better suited to Pocahontas. She is from a military-style family, and she understands the prestige and seriousness that comes with that role.
While Pocahontas doesn’t want to be with someone that is overly serious either, Li Shang does show that he’s able to have fun at points. He is someone who Pocahontas’ family would likely welcome with open arms, and alongside Pocahontas, they could be a serious force to be reckoned with.
7 Prince Naveen – Belle
Belle is the most intelligent Disney Princess and someone who is more than happy to think for herself, which is why Naveen would be a good match for her. He would challenge Belle, bringing the best out of her by asking questions with his curious and inquisitive personality.
Sure, Naveen has his flaws at points, but Belle is great at seeing the best in people and bringing that out of them, just as she does with The Beast. That is why they would work out well together, with Naveen being able to teach her all about music, and Belle could teach him about the joys of reading.
6 Prince Florian – Cinderella
The original Disney prince and arguably Disney’s most iconic princess would go perfectly together in a relationship. Prince Florian has a bit more personality than Prince Charming, showcasing that throughout Snow White, where he is happy to dance and sing, while also wanting to rescue his love.
Cinderella deserves a partner with that sense of personality, as she is quite a big character within herself. The two of them are quite well-spoken and can be serious at points, while also having fun. Prince Florian is happy to interact with all of the animals as well, which would be important considering Cinderella’s friends.
5 Prince Philip – Mulan
Mulan might be able to fight and protect herself, not needing someone to help her in the same way that Princess Aurora does, but she would still be a great match with Prince Philip. He is someone who could fight alongside Mulan, with the two of them being more than comfortable taking on any foes that got in their way.
But Mulan would be better suited to Philip because of his personality. He is a lot more fun and relaxed than Li-Shang, and that goes along with how Mulan truly is when you take away her warrior facade.
4 Snow White – The Beast
Two characters who know what it’s like to be lost, stuck in difficult circumstances, and with some big personalities would work well together. Snow White ends up with the dwarves, while The Beast is transformed and made into an animal alongside his staff, who get turned into household objects.
However, they’ve both smart characters, and Snow White would certainly know how to get the best out of him. She showcases great patience and an ability to deal with all manner of moods when dealing with the dwarves, and there’s no doubt she would clean The Beast up, which would make him fall in love.
3 Aladdin – Anna
Princess Anna is someone who has tons of energy and excitement, and while she and Kristoff are certainly a fun couple, she might actually be better off with Aladdin. He is someone who doesn’t confide in the normal rules, much like Anna, and he has a real sense of adventure and wonder.
With his Magic Carpet being able to take them around the world, Anna is someone who would seriously appreciate that. Aladdin is someone who could match Anna’s huge energy, and there’s no doubt that The Genie would also be great friends with her and Olaf.
2 Kristoff – Rapunzel
Rapunzel and Anna are quite similar in a lot of ways, with the two of them having huge personalities and a lot of energy to spare. However, Rapunzel is slightly funnier and has a bigger sense of wonder about her, which is something that Kristoff would certainly be attracted to.
It’s easy to imagine the two of them hitting it off, and it’s also clear to see that Rapunzel would love Sven, which is an added bonus to this relationship. Rapunzel loves to explore the world, and seeing the icy mountains is something that would take her breath away.
1 Eric – Tiana
Both Eric and Tiana are two characters who are prepared to hustle and work hard, and that work ethic is something that would make them a great match. While Eric does have wealth and status, he doesn’t let that go to his head in the same way that Naveen does, which Tiana would likely admire.
Eric could easily help Tiana achieve her dream of opening a restaurant, and with Eric having such a kind and warm personality, it is very easy to see how they would get along perfectly together.
