* [[RedHeadedHero Mara Jade Skywalker]] of the ''Franchise/StarWars'' ExpandedUniverse, ''Literature/NewJediOrder''-era onward, who arguably kicks a lot more ass as an ActionMom than as an ActionGirl or [[ProfessionalKiller assassin]]. Also a MamaBear when you piss her off enough.

* Subverted with in ''Film/StarWars'' with Padmé, who starts out as an ass-kicking politician, then [[BadassDecay gradually deteriorates]] into a ball of mush who gives up on life the moment her kids are born, because she only just realized her husband was a jerk.
** PlayedStraight with [[spoiler:Leia, Padmé's daughter]]. She can use blasters, is [[spoiler:a force user,]] and is an [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething active princess, later general.]] Though she doesn't engage in physical combat much, she is usually the one behind the plan. [[spoiler: Leia]] is not tempted by the dark side even once, not even after [[spoiler:her home planet is destroyed, she is physically and psychologically tortured, her adoptive parents are killed, her real parents are killed, her son turns evil, her husband is killed by him, and her brother vanishes. Take notes, Skywalker boys.]]

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'': [[spoiler:Saber]] and [[spoiler:Caster]]. [[spoiler: Mordred is actually KingArthur's bastard child in the legends. Caster is actually Medea, who was a mother in the Grecian myths; a crazy ass mother who killed her own children to get revenge for her husband Jason both dumping '''and''' horribly defiling her in the view of everyone, but a mother nonetheless. She also gives birth to more children later on; probably the most notable is King Medus]].

* Yoriko Yasaka from ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' might look like a fluffy CuddleBug, but she's ''also'' a part-time Malign Deity Hunter who's badass enough to put the Fear of G...er, Mom into the hearts of [[CthulhuMythos Nyarlathotep and Cthuguha]] with nothing more than [[ImprobableWeaponUser an ordinary dinner fork]]. [[MamaBear And Cthulhu help you if you lay a finger on her beloved Hiro-kun...]]

* [[TheCaptain Fee Carmichael]] from ''Anime/{{Planetes}}'', although she has the advantage of having her son and husband out of harm's way, in Florida, while she freely performs all her badassery [[InSpace in outer space]]. Not that her [[RammingAlwaysWorks badassery]] is [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome anything to sneer at]].

* In ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', Dr. Beverly Crusher is a fine-boned, gorgeous strawberry blonde doctor. She ''also'' practices [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Klingon]] martial arts on a regular basis, thoroughly enjoys starship command, is ''[[CombatMedic good]]'' [[CombatMedic at said command]], and oh yeah? will hide the ship she is commanding ''inside a star'' and then ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome trigger a solar flare to destroy you]]'' if you shoot at her. All while parenting a teenager.

* Millia Fallyna in ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross''. She even takes baby Komillia (or Dana, if you're following ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'') once into battle.
** By ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'', she's a mother seven times over (plus one adoption) and she still can keep up with her husband. And yes, they're both probably the best pilots in ''Macross 7'' despite being in their 40s-50s, as ''Macross 7'' is set 35 years or so after the original. So, yeah.
