* In ''TabletopGame/UnicornusKnights'', Princess Cornelia, Donia, Mirza and Fara are all capable combatants. On TheEmpire's side, Lyla is the best example, being a famous general, but Marianne and Rozie are no slouches either.

* rpg.net has identified the archetype of the "Lesbian Stripper Ninja" - the classic character most male gamers (and many female gamers) have created at some point in their gaming lives, usually when they were about 15. The Lesbianstripperninja has certain key elements to her, namely, she always tempts men with her semi-nudity but never puts out (because the teenaged male player would be uncomfortable roleplaying sex with his friends' characters), but does put out with female NPCs (because the teenaged male player [[YuriFan thinks lesbians are t3h h4wt!!!]]); she is extremely stealthy, deadly, and agile; and is invariably [[{{Stripperiffic}} scantily clad]]. Typically she will be East Asian in appearance, or if not, a Drow Elf.

* Special note should go out to the granddaddy of most Table Top Role Playing Games, DungeonsAndDragons. FairForItsDay in the seventies, it allowed females in all roles. There was a problematic limitation on female characters' Strength scores in the earliest editions, but as early as 1989's AdvancedDungeonsAndDragons 2nd Edition, the rules made males and females entirely equal with females completely able to take on any Action Girl role without limits.

** The Tau also feature plenty of female rank-and-file troops in the current (early 2016) books, and there are female Tau heads in the current (early 2016) model kits. Tau wear enough armor that a male and female Tau do not look any different when suited up, and no special mention is made of Tau females in their cadres, suggesting that half of the entire Fire Caste (warriors) of the Tau Empire are Action Girls.

Likewise, no mention is made of Shadowsun's gender being unusual for a supreme commander personally leading combat. This suggests that half ''half'' of the entire Fire Caste (warriors) of the Tau Empire military are Action Girls.
