** Mystery Girl from ''Last One Out Of Beach City'' fits the bill appearance-wise, complete with flannel, and she seems interested enough in Pearl to give her her number.

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' with a Creator/MrT DistaffCounterpart named Diedre Jackson. She's the strongest female boxer in the country. Her fists are so dangerous, she's ''not allowed'' to be a lesbian.

** In another episode Peter gets into an argument with another parent at a school football game. Punches are exchanged. Confronted by the shocked reaction of all around him, Peter Griffin asks what the big deal is - the other guy dissed him and he, Peter Griffin, punched the guy out. Even after being told he crossed the line by hitting a woman, Peter refuses to believe this and insists it was a man. Unfortunately it was a Butch Lesbian. He may be forgiven for making the error...
** when Meg tries to come out as a lesbian, she is seranaded by a barbershop quartet of Butch Lesbians all of whom are voiced by men, and one in particular has such as deep bass voice it woul have made Music/BarryWhite sound soprano.

* Middle and Regular Allison from ComicBook/FunHome's musical adaption. Despite being the same person, both fit the trope. Middle Allison has a pixie haircut with male clothing while her 43 year old self has a shorter haircut and wears baggy male jeans and a male polo top. In both the book and musical, Allison was forced into feminine clothing by her overly obsessive father Bruce, but after seeing a butch delivery woman at a diner, she began to feel more comfortable with herself.
** In the song "Telephone Wire", Allison even makes note of how much she hated being feminine growing up.
-->'''Allison:''' Since like 5, I guess!/I prefer to wear boy's shirts and pants!/I felt absurd in a dress!/I REALLY TRIED TO DENY MY FEELINGS FOR GIRLS!
** Her college roommate Joan also fits this trope.

Usually the contrasting counterpart to the LipstickLesbian, the Butch Lesbian is typically clad in heavy boots, jeans, plain t-shirts and other distinctly un-feminine attire. She'll have a [[BoyishShortHair short haircut]] and [[WrenchWench a job as a mechanic]], and often be [[OneHeadTaller taller]] and bulkier than her femme counterpart, though a lanky or even [[TheNapoleon petite]] build is not unheard of. Breast-binding is optional. She will also probably be the one who gets vocal about gay rights, persecution and the MaleGaze. She may also be [[LesbianJock quite sporty]]. On many occasions, they can be [[ViewerGenderConfusion mistaken for men]] (which results in the butch lesbian punching that person).

* A butch/femme lesbian couple is seen in a chapter of ''PetshopOfHorrors Tokyo''. One mentions to Count D that while their union isn't legally binding, "I'm her husband and she is my wife". The couple laments their inability to have children, but [[spoiler: at the end of the chapter one of the women is seen pregnant, having eaten a cake made with eggs that cause pregnancies.]] It's not explained how [[spoiler: the pregnant woman]] is going to explain her condition to her partner...

* Amane Ohtori in ''LightNovel/StrawberryPanic''. EvenTheGirlsWantHer. Kaname Kenjo, her evil counterpart, is similar.
** Do note, however, they look VERY feminine (Kaname especially) when not dressed up in an androgynous manner, with Amane more or less crossing into {{Bifauxnen}} territory.
* Subverted in ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'', with the [[KissingCousins very close cousins]] Rei and Yoshino. Rei looks like the typical Butch, so an outsider like Yumi believes that it's Rei who's wearing the trousers in the relationship. Soon she finds out that she couldn't be more wrong.

* ''CloneHigh'' - the P.E. teacher was the clone of Eleanor Roosevelt. No explanation is given why the evil scientists cloned her 30 years before the other clones, but she's big and butch and her voice is provided by a man, who adds on an extra layer of creepy as she enjoys watching Joan of Arc's walk.

* Although not her usual outfit, Patty from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' took on the attire and attitude in the episode "Homer Simpson, This is Your Wife".
** Then again, there were a few jokes and hints made before she came out and even Homer himself was hardly surprised at this.

In Japanese {{anime}} and {{manga}}, expect the butch lesbian to be portrayed in a more positive and possibly {{fanservice}} inclined fashion. The name for a butch lesbian in {{Yuri}} community is "tachi", which comes from the term "tachiyaku" (the player of a male role in Kabuki). Because of her natural self-confidence she'll usually be successful in her romantic endeavors.
