Guinevere as seen in Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins.

Guinevere,[1] also known as Princess Prin-Prin[2][3] or simply the Princess[4] (or not named altogether depending on the game or translation), is a major supporting character from the Ghosts 'n Goblins series of run 'n gun platformer games. She is the helpless damsel whom lead protagonist Arthur saves time and time again in each main installment. She has an extremely powerful ring in her possession which is able to destroy the Demon Emperor Sardius. She also has a magical bracelet.

In Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins, she is the last human on earth with royal blood in her veins, and the reason for her repeated kidnappings is made much clearer. Apparently, she is to be impregnated by a demon, thereby giving the Ghoul Realm control over the monarchy.

Other appearances[]

Outside of the Ghosts 'n Goblins games, the Princess has appeared in Street Fighter × All Capcom and cameos as a Heroes & Heralds card in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.


  • The plot dynamic between Arthur and Guinevere is similar to Nintendo characters Mario and Peach, with Mario constantly having to save Peach from being kidnapped, usually by Bowser.
