* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreed'' Syndicate: If one looks at things from Henry Greens point of view, he's a clever analyst but a bumbling field agent, and Evie Frye swings into his life like the damn dashing assassin dame that she is, kicking ass all over the place while taking over London's underworld on the way to finding mystical artifacts.

It starts with an ordinary guy living an ordinary life then he [[BlitheSpirit meets a woman who changes his life forever]]. Unlike a typical MagicalGirlfriend, the series is more about her [[Actio[[quoteright:335:[[WesternAnimation/KimPossible http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kimpossible.jpg]]]]
[[caption-width-right:335:Ron, stop checking out Kim and ''focus!'']]

* The title character of ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'', who helps Yuji discover that he bears the spiritual treasure Reiji Maigo.
* From the {{Nasuverse}} is [[BloodKnight Ryougi]] [[LadyOfWar Shiki]] of ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'', who is the love interest of NonActionGuy Kokutou Mikiya.
* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'': Ryoko. Ayeka as well, but her refined nature prevents it from dominating her personality.
* ''Anime/BurstAngel'' started out like this, but then the apparent "main character" was PutOnABus...



* ''Manga/FutureDiary'' certainly has fun with this trope. Almost immediately after stumbling into The Game, Yukiteru encounters Yuno Gasai, a beautiful girl in his class who makes it her top priority to protect him from harm ([[DarkActionGirl and does pretty damn well, to boot]]). The catch? She's [[{{Yandere}} batshit]] [[StalkerWithACrush frickin']] ''[[AxCrazy insane]]'', and at even her most "sane" moments likes to break into his house or send him hundreds of emails over the course of an hour.
* Miu from ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple''. Kenichi repeatedly vows to protect her, despite the fact that she's still a more skilled fighter than he is. Eventually he comes close and has actively protected her several times when she was sick or disabled. Still, her Grandfather won't let him date her unless he can beat ''him'' in a fight. Said Grandfather is an OldMaster.
