* When the new ComicBook/{{Batwoman}} was revealed in ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'' she was drawn with a number of impractical costume decisions, including high-heels. When she was transferred to the lead in ''Detective Comics'' the artists made a deliberate decision to have her costume be more practical and, amongst the changes, removed her heels (she also cut her hair and replaced it with a wig, since Franchise/{{Batman}} [[LampshadeHanging points out]] that any {{mook|s}} can grab her hair and end the fight).

Added DiffLines:

* Victorion from IDW's run of ''Franchise/TheTransformers'' is an [[HumongousMecha enormous]] [[CombiningMecha Combiner]]. As the only Combiner made entirely of female Transformers, she naturally has high heeled feet to set her apart from all the male Combiners. She may have fewer balance issues than most, considering that she's also a GravityMaster.


Added DiffLines:

* Kat wears heels in ''VideoGame/GravityRush''. [[CuteClumsyGirl She also falls over a lot]]. [[FridgeBrilliance This may not be a coincidence]].

In comics this is often DependingOnTheArtist: artist A will use it in moderation, artist B will draw practical shoes, but artist C will insist on drawing high heels on all female characters regardless of reason, situation, or even if it's her usual style. While this can be part of MostWritersAreMale trend, this tend to appear equal often with Female Writers as well, [[RuleOfSexy for]] [[{{Escapism}} various]] [[AuthorAppeal reasons]].

* ''Film/JurassicWorld'' has Claire wearing high heels through all that terrible day.

** Noticeably jarring when in the mall her heels keep appearing and disappearing when she starts doing back flips and such.

** Another Batman villainess who gets those in film is Harley Quinn for ''Film/SuicideSquad''. Creator/MargotRobbie [[http://www.imdb.com/imdbpicks/margot-robbie-suicide-squad-interview/ls063166429?pf_rd_m=A2FGELUUNOQJNL&pf_rd_p=2549061702&pf_rd_r=1419YQJ10H8DTE8N3A8Q&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_t=15061&pf_rd_i=homepage&ref_=hm_pks_mrs_sm highlighted]] how the stilettos are AwesomeButImpractical:
-->So, that's when the powers that be stepped in and voted on a pair of heels. Once I knew that it had to be a pair of heels, I wanted the most badass-looking ones. And when I saw the Adidas ones I was like, "They are sick." And it all happened quite quickly. Before I knew it, I was like, "OK. So, that's the costume." And I walked around in them for a day. That was the worst idea. Ever.

** The predecessor of ''Unicorn''[='s=] Re-ZEL, the Z-II, has a set of humongous high heels. However, as it was meant to be a space-only Mobile Suit, it's pretty much cosmetic.

* In the ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series, a sizable portion of the female cast of any given game will be wearing high heels. While this can be at least somewhat excusable for some characters (mounted units for whom the heels serve a somewhat more practical purpose, mages who aren't expected to fight in melee combat, healers who aren't really capable of fighting at all, etc.) a fairly large number of these characters are melee fighters, a couple of them even being thieves or myrmidons, the most agile classes in any given game! This doesn't apply to ''every'' game in the series, though, and to what extent it applies to any particular game varies greatly.

Not to be confused with [[KnifeNut a combat stiletto]]. See RuleOfSexy, ImpossiblyCoolClothes and TheseTropesAreMadeForWalking. Compare KickChick and WithMyHandsTied, as this trope may sometimes be used together with the said two.
