* The ''Anime/CorrectorYui'' anime. Played straight and [[Awesome/AnimeAndManga memorably subverted]] in the second season.

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' subverts this. The ActionGirl [[{{Tsundere}} Sheena]] [[EveryoneCanSeeIt is clearly]] [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan crushing on]] [[TheHero Lloyd]]. When she eventually pulls off a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome to help save their friend Colette, she [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu unfortunately messes up and ends up hanging on for dear life]] but encourages Lloyd to go on and save the poor girl regardless. When he's out of earshot, she contemplates that perhaps some Chickification might do her some good as it would more or less guarantee that someone would rescue her when she's in danger... only to immediately dismiss the thought, as it "... wouldn't be (her) style."

** The Avatar in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' gets a lot of canon angst and melancholy due to their backstory and the consequences of their choice in either ''Birthright'' or ''Conquest'', but the female Avatar can be especially prone to this trope in shipping fics.

** Oboro gets hit with this hard in a fic that pairs her with Ryoma, in which she's nothing but a sad, traumatized woman who cries over Takumi not noticing her feelings and constantly breaking down into PTSD fits over the death of her parents.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', Tetra starts off as a boisterous pirate captain and is one of the few early characters who doesn't sing Link's praises at every opportunity. [[ActionGirl She's not afraid to get her hands dirty either.]] Then at the midpoint of the game, [[spoiler:the moment she learns she's Zelda]], all her fire completely vanishes, and she can only act meek and dumbfounded as she's PutOnABus and treated as a living MacGuffin. Subverted in the final battle, where she finally gets her act together and helps Link fight, but for a large chunk of the game {{Chickification}} is in full effect.

** Some fanart for ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros for [=3DS/WiiU=]'' tend to have Lucina as something of an adorable magnet, usually seen cuddling some of the more cute characters. This goes double if the cute characters are also badasses such as Meta Knight or Lucario. Then, there are the artwork of Lucina wanting to smash Captain Falcon's face in for Chrom's humiliating defeat.

* The title character in ''Film/{{Sheena}}''. She's a capable, savvy warrior babe while city slicker Vic Casey stumbles around awkwardly and provides comic relief. But there's a few scenes where she suffers from this, particularly in the scene where she and Vic are fleeing from the helicopter and then again at the end, where, yes, she does kill the villain, but chooses to run directly in front of his out of control Land Rover, forcing Vic to come to her rescue.

** Once regarded as a high peak for a woman wrestler to climb, perhaps the highest, the reputation of the Wrestling/{{WWE}} women's division started to deteriorate around 1999, though the causes behind it went back further. From women's champions not allowed to use any moves men were doing, to women's champions who don't bump, to Divas champions who can't run the ropes it became disturbingly common to use the very idea of WWE divas in a serious context as a punchline. Proven talents repeatedly being passed over for unproven counterparts based on presumed sex appeal, [[BeautyIsNeverTarnished efforts to hide aesthetic injuries]] and reduced match time only make it worse.

** To illustrate the WWE problem in a more personable manner, women such as Wrestling/SaraDelRey, known for her 60 minute time limit draw against PGWA champion Nikki Roxx, Traci Brooks, whose feud with Trinity brought women's wrestling to new venues and April Hunter, whose matches had fans around the world asking for WWE to sign her, were passed up. Body building legend Lenda Murray failed to get a developmental deal. So there was only one title to wrestle for but presumptions that the WWE roster was simply full were disproved when it was cleaned out for the sake of untrained talent who were then pushed as wrestlers. [[Wrestling/TerriPoch Tori]], Jacqueline, Wrestling/{{Ivory}}, it happened slowly at first but then in a move that somehow went unnoticed by the NAACP, Nidia, Gail Kim and [[Wrestling/CarleneMoore Jazz]] were simultaneously released with failed contestants from the 2004 diva search put in their place. While WWE somehow avoided a discrimination lawsuit for replacing all its remaining nonwhite women at once with inferior workers, the division's reputation has yet to recover.

** Wrestling/{{Natalya|Neidheart}} suffered from this. She debuted as a powerful heel and was put into contention for the new Divas' Championship but was quickly dropped from that and eventually became a manager for the Hart Dynasty where the most she usually did was slap her guys' opponents a little. This got reversed when they brought in Wrestling/TheUsos to feud with them who had a woman as their valet. When they split, Natalya became a prominent part of the women's division and won the title. Sadly this has come true as of late as Natalya has become little more than a joke, paired with The Great Khali and Hornswoggle and she often loses to other girls like [[Wrestling/BellaTwins The Bella Twins]].

** [[OptOut Upon leaving WWE for the second time]], Wrestling/GailKim has claimed, among other things, that WWE wants the division to be more "girly" and have barred the Divas from things like punching and kicking. That obviously cuts out a lot but still leaves pretty of moves to do right? No, even go to stuff like the DDT apparently got divas reprimanded to the point they had to sneak spots past the agents. Possibly as a result, these "rules" would change week to week. Whatever WWE's case may be, the chickification of this once great women's division is painfully obvious.

** Frozen in fear also applies to Wrestling/{{Aksana}}, who would fight for what she wanted on WWE's version of FCW and duck out of the arena to avoid what she didn't want. On the main roster, she passively hung around general manager Theodore Long for no reason and became a nervous wreck just thinking about Kane.

* In the late 1980s up about 2000, many of the top women wrestlers from the continental United States Of America were not known to fans in the continental USA because so many wrestled almost exclusively outside of it, often in Japan, Mexico or a territory such as Puerto Rico. It didn't help that the Wrestling/{{A|merican Wrestling Association}}WA and WCW women's titles had nearly the entirety of their defenses in Japan. Before foreigners, particularly Japanese, would often have to migrate overseas because Wrestling/{{A|llJapanWomensProWrestling}}JWP didn't want anyone over 25.

** The Knockout Division in Wrestling/{{TNA}} was chickified when Wrestling/HulkHogan appeared. Before there were all sorts of girls with different styles, after Hogan came and the firing of [[Wrestling/KiaStevens Awesome Kong]] and other women being released the division suffered. Not to the extent of "The Divas", a decent match could usually be expected at least every other show but the division was hardly taken as seriously as before, by the commentary or "the writers" who couldn't seem to find time for them or thought their talents were better spent acting out soap plots or stripping; this on top of there being fewer wrestlers overall. The return of Gail Kim did lead to the knockouts eventually getting back to the main event though, especially after Havok debuted.

*** In [[Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF Resurrection F]] this is actually FridgeBrilliance. One of them has to stay behind to keep their daughter safe in case Freeza wins and decides to go tearing Earth apart. Freeza knows who Krillin is, buy he's never seen 18 before. and her energy can't be sensed. She's the logical choice, regardless of who's stronger.

* [[{{Tomboy}} Patience]], by the end of her role in ''{{Literature/Dinoverse}}''. She starts as TheLeader, more decisive and certain of herself than the others, proactive, completely willing to plunge into the unknown. But her motivation starts to change and revolve around a pair of boys, and she decides to go along with the BeautifulAllAlong plan that she'd found utterly insulting before, and being more interested in the advice a classmate gives her to be more feminine - don't swear, don't fight, laugh at everything a boy says, don't disagree with him, don't show him up. In her last appearance she finds that the [[SharingABody boy(s)]] she loves is TrappedInAnotherWorld and in need of rescue, and is content to sit back and let two boys she doesn't know go to him.

** The page quote references Goku's wife Chichi, although she's actually an {{subver|tedTrope}}sion. It's mentioned that she ''always'' wanted to live a peaceful life away from war and fighting, despite her being a rather skilled CuteBruiser. She's the one who started training Goten how to fight. Furthermore, she does ''not'' lose her backbone. A common joke says that she's the only character who can "[[HenpeckedHusband defeat]]" Goku. She does however come to see the Z Fighters as a gang of jobless thugs rather than an intergalactic superhero team, pushes Gohan to focus more on his studies than running off training to save the world, and desperately tries to force Goku into settling down and getting a job with a stable income. (Which he eventually does by becoming a radish farmer after the Buu Saga...sometimes)
