* ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'':
** Mara Jade Skywalker, ''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.
** Leia counts as well, though the "action" part doesn't suit her in the traditional sense (what with getting caught up in politics and all). Not at first, anyway; she eventually goes full-time action-y in the ''Dark Nest'' series (she got sick of politics).
** [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Tenel Ka]], ''Dark Nest'' onward. While we don't see her fight much (queen and all), she's proven herself more than capable of defending herself and her daughter, [[spoiler:who just happens to be Leia and Han's granddaughter]], from all sorts of threats, including ''two'' assassination attempts.
** In ''Han Solo at Stars' End'' we have Atuarre the {{catfolk}} "Trianii Ranger." Her husband and son were captured by the evil Corporate Sector MegaCorp, but she rescued the kid herself. He had been tortured and the trauma left him mute. Now, with the cub in tow as a {{sidekick}}, she will join Han Solo and whatever to face [[NeverTellMeTheOdds overwhelming odds]], defy the bad guys and make hubby proud—if he's still alive. She probably went MamaBear to save the son, but that was off-screen.
* ''Literature/StarWarsAftermath'' trilogy: Norra Wexley is a semi-retired AcePilot who flew a y-wing during the [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi Battle of Endor]] and later went on to lead a team of elite New Republic agents to assist in hunting Imperial war criminals. She's also the mother of Temmin Wexley, who would later follow in her footsteps as a pilot for [[Film/TheForceAwakens the Resistance.]]

* ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'':
** Liara, when she is introduced, is already pregnant with her second child and still a working battle mage. Her husband occasionally tries to beg her to stop and think of herself, but gets shut down quickly, and Liara actively takes part in the final battle by wading in and sniping {{fireballs}} left, right and centre.
** The follow-up novella ''A Trap for a Necromancer'' reveals that protagonist Shelena, while perfectly fine with a peaceful life revolving mostly around doting on her baby son Roim, is and remains an ActionGirl when the situation asks for it. As long as she knows Roim to be safe, she's ready to go out and hunt for thieves and renegade necromancers.

** Big Mom Charlotte Linin one of the four "Emperors of the sea" as her name suggests she's "a really big mom" having over 35 daughters (which almost unbelievable as she's ugly as hell. Big Mom is a EvilMatriarch ruling over domain with a iron fist even threatening to "eat" her minions showing she may be a cannibal too. In short Big Mom is one mother you definitely don't want to mess with.
