** One particular fic hits Camilla ''mercilessly'' with this trope, in which she's portrayed as a fearful, trembling victim of Iago's sexual advances, forced by her father and governess to keep company with him despite her misgivings. [[spoiler:This culminates in him ''raping her'' after forcing her to drink a drugged cup of tea, then threatening to tell Garon what a slut she is ''and'' to harm Elise in the future if she doesn't keep quiet! After that, Camilla becomes a shell-shocked ball of fear who remains so until it's time to kill Iago in the storyline, at which point she ''finally'' regains her ActionGirl traits.]]

*** 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.

[[JustifiedTrope Not to mention, she doesn't have any interest in fighting unless it's for money, or a few specific other reasons.]]

** Marina Sirtis [[http://www.thegeektwins.com/2014/06/7-bizarre-facts-about-deanna-trois.html#.V3ZwTxJI53F noted]] that [[Characters/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Deanna Troi]]'s intelligence seemed to vary in inverse proportion to the amount of cleavage she was made to display. In later seasons, when Sirtis was allowed to stop wearing low-cut tops and put on a Starfleet uniform that covered her up to the neck like everyone else, Troi suddenly started getting better storylines.
--->'''Marina Sirtis''': My gray matter came flooding back. I was on away teams! I was the leader of one away team! I had a medical tricorder! And unlike Beverly, I seemed to know what was wrong with people.

* Natasha Romanoff in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''. The [[Film/TheAvengers2012 first movie]] shows her escaping interrogation by hostile agents with absolute ease, barely incurring a run in her tights. But when she's captured by Ultron, we're expected to believe she would wait around to be rescued by Bruce Banner instead of finding a way out herself.

* This is disturbingly common in ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' fanfiction, particularly with characters like [[ProudWarriorRaceGirl Lyndis]] (especially in a lot of fics pairing her with [[BodyguardCrush Kent]]) and [[SilkHidingSteel Eirika]]. It's particularly bad in the case of Eirika, since as a result ends up suffering from the fandom in a similar manner to the Hetalia girls -- people accuse her of being weak and stupid, when in reality she's written as having the ''human'' reactions that initially sheltered and inexpert noblewoman would have upon laying eyes ''for the first time'' on the consequences that the evil around her lays on the people.

* The infamous WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender fan-comic ''FanFic/HowIBecameYours'' does this to both Azula and Toph:
** Azula? The {{Magnificent B|astard}}itch with a JerkassWoobie streak becomes a sort of Yue copycat who does almost nothing but whine and cry after getting amnesia and has a super Sue-fied love story with Sokka. Toph? She goes from a devil-may-care BadassAdorable who didn't mind a makeover once, to a soft-spoken and nervous flower of a girl who willingly bottoms to a guy she calls "twinkle-toes" and is a borderline maidservant to [[DesignatedHero Katara]].
** Pulled on Katara too. She goes from an ActionGirl TeamMom with mood swings and HiddenDepths into a whiny, weepy, selfish {{Jerkass}} whom everyone mollycoddles, who cares more about being Zuko's pasted-on love interest and babymama than anything, and only shows her ActionGirl skills when she [[spoiler: bloodily and horribly kills Mai in {{revenge}}]].

every female canon character who appears (except Mai, who's [[RonTheDeathEater demonized]] instead):

** Even cameo characters aren't immune: June the bounty hunter, who only appears in one panel, comments that she likes getting dressed up and wishes she could do it more often, and giggles. This is supposed to be the same June who was introduced ''tearing a bit of a ship's deck off'' to find her quarry.

* 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."
