* Angelina, supposedly reformed [[SerialKiller murderess]] turned Special Corp agent/wife of [[TheStainlessSteelRat 'Slippery Jim' DiGriz]]. Always carries an arsenal of lethal weaponry on her person, and has the ability to produce a [[{{BFG}} .75 calibre recoilless]] from HammerSpace whenever she thinks her husband is getting too slippery for her taste. Supposedly, her more psychopathic impulses have been removed by the psych-techs, but Jim frequently has to restrain her natural enthusiasm for killing and torture.

* Another protagonist example: Celaena/Aelin of ''Literature/ThroneOfGlass'', especially in the first book. Not shocking, given that she's a [[HeWhoFightsMonsters conflicted]], [[SuperpoweredEvilSide supernaturally-angry]], [[DarkAndTroubledPast secretive]] [[PsychoForHire assassin]]. The shit well and truly hits the fan when she goes toe-to-toe with fellow DAG, bloodthirsty witch [[BloodKnight Manon Blackbeak]].

* CorruptCorporateExecutive [[TheBaroness Tess Mercer]] of ''{{Smallville}}'' has repeatedly demonstrated that, in addition to being an expert ManipulativeBastard and [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]], she is not a slouch in the physical department either, having fought [[WaifFu Lana]], [[ActionGirl Lois]], [[BadassNormal Green Arrow]], [[FourStarBadass Zod]], and fellow Dark Action Girl [[AxCrazy Mad]] Harriet on relatively equal footing (she had to cheat against Zod by using Kryptonite brass knuckles; still, the fact that she devised and built ''Kryptonite brass knuckles'' is pretty badass in and of itself!). Harriet and the [[AmazonBrigade Female Furies]] also fulfill this trope, as did Lana when possessed by [[WickedWitch Isobel Thoreaux]]. ** [[spoiler:Chloe Sullivan]] in season ten, ''Collateral'', is an unusual combination of this and WomanInWhite.

** Probably should be mentioned that, in the comics, SilverSable is a very different character with no connection to Silvermane. She is an AntiHero [[HiredGuns mercenary]] and ActionGirl, and is usually on Spider-Man's side.

Zala wasn't a pedofile
* Lisbeth Salander of ''Literature/TheMillenniumTrilogy''. She slashes the throat of one thug with a broken bottle and scares his gang off by acting [[AxCrazy herself]], [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale violates her sadistic guardian]] and blackmails him with evidence of his rape, reveals her solution to her pedophile father was to KillItWithFire, attacks then chases down a Neo-Nazi who she causes to crash before leaving for dead, and that's just the first book. And [[SociopathicHero she's one of the good guys]].

* [[Characters/SecretSix Scandal]] from ''Villains United'' and ''SecretSix'' first appears to simply be a MiddleManagementMook. However, she's shown to be extremely dangerous in combat, quite possibly insane, and very hard to kill (and it's revealed that her father is the immortal supervillain VandalSavage).

Understatement cleanup
* Being a LongRunner PowerRangers had [[{{Understatement}} quite a few of these]]: Scorpina, Archerina, Astronema, Trakeena, Vypra, and Tenaya 7, just to name some of the most prominent. And of course its Japanese counterpart SuperSentai naturally has these.
