'''Singing Cowboy:''' A cowboy who sings as his primary avocation. While it's true that some musical talent was always appreciated on the range, the singing cowboy was really a product of Hollywood. The standard formula for B-movies included at least one musical number, and a singing cowboy could slip one right in naturally while saving the ranch. "Saving the ranch" is the number one plotline for singing cowboy stories, closely followed by "clean up the lawless town." Top singing cowboys included Creator/RoyRogers and Gene Autry, but even JohnWayne was tested as one in an early movie! Now a DeadHorseTrope; nowadays if you see a singer in a cowboy hat, he's just a Country-Western musician.

* ''Film/BrokebackMountain'' is about the doomed romance between a working cowboy and a rodeo rider--though they both started as sheepherders.

'''Cowgirl:''' The DistaffCounterpart of the Cowboy. Generally a PluckyGirl in Western garb, who can ride and shoot as well as any man (except the protagonist), but who is seldom seen doing any of the filthier ranch chores. In fiction, almost always the love interest for the protagonist, or the young man the protagonist is helping this week. May be a plentiful source of FetishFuel (though to be fair, cowboys can be that too.) [[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused with]] females who are a LittleBitBeastly and bovine-based, or the result of mixing CuteMonsterGirl and ALoadOfBull.

* A cowboy appeared as a villain in the ''{{lonelygirl15}}'' episode "The Cowboy". He did not appear again, most likely because the rights to the character are owned by Glenn Rubenstein.

* Cowboy Andy from ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' is a bounty hunter (called "Space Cowboys" InUniverse) with a cowboy theme, including using a horse for locomotion and carrying a six-shooter. This is really out of place in the 23rd century and the crew of the ''Bebop'' at first refuse to believe Spike after he runs into him.
