** Mindy Blanchard is a trans example, being one of Paolo's underbosses who helps run the Howlers gang, and is perfectly capable of throwing down when push comes to shove.



* Ellie from the ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs''. WordOfGod confirmed that her kiss with Riley was born of genuine attraction/love rather than just an infatuation.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Grendel}}: Several. In the Hunter Rose arc, there's Larry Stohler, who was the only one to independently figure out Hunter's identity as Grendel and rose to become his InformationBroker. In the War Child arc, there's Susan Veraghen, who is a ButchLesbian and quite possibly the only human warrior good enough to go up against the {{Cyborg}} [[ThePaladin Paladin]] Grendel-Prime. Jupiter Assante may qualify too; he's seen married to a woman in between books, but WordOfGay states he's flexible.

With the fading tradition of portraying gay people as effeminate, weak or [[DepravedHomosexual perverted]], and with some young people using the word "gay" as if it meant "incompetent" or "stupid", it still requires some skill to successfully make a character {{Badass}} while at the same time have the character directly or indirectly engage in same-sex romance. If done well, the contrast between the negative stereotypes and the awesomeness of the character can enhance the character(s) and/or the plot.

* Mio Kusakai from ''Manga/{{Keijo}}'' is openly a lesbian, and frequently flirts with and gropes her fellow students. However, she's the top-ranked student in her class, easily overcomes a lot of the [[TrainingFromHell harshest training techniques]], and is frequently talked up by everyone.

** Preitor Gavorn, a minor NPC who serves as an enforcer in Aria's crime syndicate, is implied to be gay by certain video files in the ''Lair of the Shadow Broker'' DLC for ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''. His day job involves "handling" the vorcha problem on Omega, naturally.

Added DiffLines:

* There's a number of {{Badass}} queer characters in ''VideoGame/Dishonored2'':
** Meagan Foster, the captain of the ''Dreadful Wale'', mentions primarily being interested in women (though she's [[BiTheWay been with a few men too]]). It's later revealed she's also [[spoiler:Billie Lurk, a former assassin who used to run with Daud during the events of the original ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'']].
** Breanna Ashworth is a villainous example, having become infatuated with the game's BigBad, Delilah, and is also very powerful witch and combatant.
** To some extent, PlayerCharacter Emily Kaldwin is as well. It's mentioned she has a lover named Wyman prior to the events of the game, and all references are deliberately [[GenderNeutralWriting gender neutral]] so the player can draw their own conclusions about whether Wyman is male or female. WordOfGod confirms it was intended to portray Emily as bisexual.
