** By volume 10 BlackLagoon is pretty much a [[WorldOfActionGirls World of Dark Action Girls]]. These range from [[NinjaMaid Roberta]] of whom we see a [[TheStoic robotic]] and an AxCrazy version on separate occasions, [[PunchClockVillain mercenaries who do it for the money]] like Shenhua and Sawyer to outright psychopaths like [[FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon Gretel]].

* [[Characters/SecretSix Scandal]] from ''Villains United'' and ''ComicBook/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).
* ComicBook/BlackCat, one of ''Franchise/{{Spider-Man}}'''s love interests. Her HeelFaceTurn is often a BatmanGambit, her betrayals less an indication of her turn than the prime motivator all along. Though she doesn't need love in her life, she can appreciate it when it's there and remembers it fondly after abandoning it, which is why she doesn't return to the HeelFaceRevolvingDoor by whacking the Hero.

* The ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series has always granted us with ''lots'' of heroic {{Action Girl}}s. Likewise, there's usually at least one badass female villain in each game. And just as the female heroes in this franchise are typically exceptionally heroic, the villainesses tend to be absolutely '''''vicious'''''.

The villainous version of the ActionGirl. Likes [[WomanInBlack dressing in black]] and keeping her [[FemmeFatalons nails particularly long and sharp]], unless the story cares about practicality. A popular combination with TheBaroness, but usually not TheVamp or the FemmeFatale, since she prefers to pummel TheHero to a bloody pulp instead of seducing him, but there are certainly exceptions. Can this wild woman be tamed? Go on, keep thinking that way. We'll see how long you live. Hang on, let me get my stopwatch.

ActionGirl + Dark Action Girl = DesignatedGirlFight.

to:

ActionGirl + Dark Action Girl = DesignatedGirlFight.Do not confuse with ''DarkMagicalGirl'' which is more likely to be an anti-villain and thus more sympathetic. They are also supposed to be foils to a heroic MagicalGirl and possibly her friend [[DefeatMeansFriendship after being defeated]]; neither of which is the case with this trope.
