* ''Franchise/LupinIII'': [[MsFanservice Fujiko]] is an international jewel thief and [[FemmeFatale a seductress]], who's made interpol's most wanted list. Though [[DependingOnTheWriter her character has undergone multiple iterations]], she's usually portrayed as Lupin's female counterpart, which has naturally placed them at odds with each other. Though they've teamed up just as often and, on occasion, [[DatingCatwoman they've even been lovers.]] She eventually got her own series to showcase her skills: ''Anime/LupinIIITheWomanCalledFujikoMine''.

* She misses the animal theme but this is the ''civilian'' job of Lorelei (little sister of Amora the Enchantress) from ''Comicbook/TheMightyThor'' series of books. She finances her lifestyle by robbing high end casinos and such with style (SpyCatsuit included). Given that she is also a fairly powerful Asgardian witch she really could do worse, but what for?

** Which is based off of a French silent film serial called ''Film/LesVampyres''. The Character of Irma Vep may be the Ur Example.

* In Creator/MichaelConnelly novel ''Literature/VoidMoon'' Cassie fits this role, but is a slightly more realistic version of this character in that she doesn't pull impossible heists, instead focusing on much smaller targets. She and her partner robbed high rollers at a casino before being caught and having her partner killed.

** In the classic series there were plans for the never produced season 27 for Ace to go to Gallifrey for Time Lord training and be replaced by a heroic cat burglar.
* Vala Mal Doran of ''Series/StargateSG1'' was something of a failed cat burglar. In addition to failing to steal the Prometheus and a Goa'uld Naquadah bomb, she fails to seduce Daniel Jackson. Repeatedly. And Lt. Col. Mitchell. And Teal'c. But mostly Daniel. Even getting to the point of ''possibly'' stealing a gigantic well-defended armed and heavily populated ship single-handedly is pretty damn cool. If she'd chosen anyone besides Daniel to tie up she probably would have made it. Plus, as she points out, the Goa'uld Naquadah bomb was inside alien technology she'd never seen before and...well...she rushed it. And she did eventually seduce Daniel, and discovered he was resisting before because he thought she wasn't as interested in him as he was in her. Plus she's played by Claudia Black, so she's gorgeous.

* Averted with "Macavity the Mystery Cat" in ''Theatre/{{Cats}}''. His introduction provides the page quote for GentlemanThief but on stage he is just a rambunctuous bully.

Walking, talking, ''purring'' class. She doesn't steal; she liberates. She doesn't lie; she fibs. She steals from the rich and gives to... herself, but she's so graceful and easy on the eyes that you'll want to let it slide.

** The Imp, throughout her career as a supervillain [[spoiler:(and, later, as an art teacher)]], makes it her goal to embody this. While she doesn't play up the FemmeFatale angle as much, she nonetheless makes it a point to enact her crimes with style and panache, and doesn't hesitate to rib her heroic counterparts on a regular basis. [[spoiler: She also plays her part in an example of DatingCatwoman.]]
