* Juliet Butler from ''ArtemisFowl'' is somewhat of a subversion. Though she's been trained for most of her life as a bodyguard, it's because she's a Butler, and that's what they do. When Artemis keeps her around for missions, it's solely because she's well trained and already knows about TheMasquerade. While an excellent fighter, she's too impulsive to be a good bodyguard and in the later books starts a career in wrestling.

* After members of Bitch Slap got injured trying to prove themselves against male wrestlers on the roster like Wrestling/RonKillings, Wrestling/JimCornette (Spike TV and possible Fox Sports Net) declared it illegal for men to hit women in Wrestling/{{TNA}}. This lead to a lot of wrestlers taking up female body guards ([[LoopholeAbuse didn't say anything about women hitting men]]) such as Wrestling/BobbyRoode getting Traci Brooks and Payton Banks, whom Wrestling/JerryLynn and Eric Young were powerless against. It was mostly an {{inverted| trope}} though, with one woman "protecting" a group of guys. Wrestling/GailKim for America's [[Wrestling/JamesStorm Most Wanted]], Shelly Martinez for LAX, Christy Hemme for Rock 'n' Rave Infection, Sirelda for [[Wrestling/AJStyles Styles]]&[[Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels Daniels]], [[Wrestling/ChristinaVonEerie Toxxin]] for Inc Ink, ect.

* In ''Film/{{Suffragette}}'' Emmeline Pankhurst is accompanied by a number of women whose purpose in being there is likely not just keeping her company, considering that she's on the run from the police. There's a short sequence where the protagonists learn Jiu Jitsu.

* In ''Literature/AncillaryJustice'', the protagonist's language has no genus, and in the translation the femininum is used as default, resulting in ''all'' bodyguards being female, at least grammatically. Since the protagonist's culture also doesn't place much importance on biological sex as a means of discrimination, it can be assumed that about half of the bodyguards are, in fact, female.
