Her personality can run from [[MamaBear motherly but overprotective]] to [[{{Tsundere}} gruff and cantankerous]], but the vast majority of the time her personality is irrelevant: she's just a gag character whose humor stems from being the opposite of a hot exotic chick. In one Stock Plot, for example, Bob books "Ekaterina" as his ''masseuse'' or cleaning woman, expecting someone young and attractive, and gets this character instead, who violently rearranges his house and life (and, if a ''masseuse'', also causes him considerable personal discomfort). In more serious contexts, she tends to turn into ''The Rosa Klebb'' version of TheBaroness. Bonus points if she's blond, wears braided twin tails, and possesses the name Helga, Hilda, or Olga (which is the Russian version of Helga!).

* DiscussedTrope, and averted, in ''Film/OneNightOfLove''. Giulio the vocal coach hears Mary singing in a cheap cantina and decides he can make her into a big opera star. He barges into her dressing room to find her wearing only a slip--and she's extremely good-looking. Giulio casts a long MaleGaze at her sexiness, and murmurs, "I always wanted to see a Carmen who weighed less than a bull."

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' had the Scotsman ask for Jack's help to rescue his kidnapped wife. He talks about her as if she's the daintiest, most beautiful woman on Earth, but when we finally see her in person she turns out to be quite the opposite of that. She's also a [[{{Jerkass}} huge bitch]] who spends the whole time [[ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike berating the two of them for incompetence]] and even forces the two of them to ''carry'' her because she's too damn lazy to move. When the Scotsman and Jack get attacked on the way out and seem outmatched, they resign themselves to death... and then the leader of the kidnappers [[BerserkButton calls the Scotsman's wife fat]]. She clobbers every last one of them in a violent rage with her bare hands. Both men are equal parts dumbfounded and impressed by the spectacle.

* Subtly implied by Kronk [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVSnY-90xcA in an episode of]] ''WesternAnimation/TheEmperorsNewSchool'' ([[Franchise/{{Spider-Man}} "The Astonishing Kuzco-Man"]]), where he remarks that Yzma, having used a ray that previously gave Kuzco superpowers (but now set to "Medium") to transform into a muscular (and deeper-voiced) version of herself (now dubbed Yzma Woman), "looks more like Pajama Llama than Kuzco does." That being said, he ''does'' give something resembling a gesture of admiration to her flexing right after, although that could just be Kronk's PunchClockVillain tendencies coming into play.

Coyote [[TalkingWithSigns holding up a sign]] saying, "NOT YET" in the first four levels.

* [[http://satwcomic.com/iron-lady Lady Germany]] from ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld.'' She has considerable physical power, a no-nonsense attitude, and, apart from her BoobsOfSteel, is fairly masculine looking, at least for a chibi (she even has facial hair!).
