** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden and its remake ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'', [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Witch the Witches]] are beautiful [[LadyOfBlackMagic Ladies of Black Magic]] that serve a ReligionOfEvil, possess quite the array of spells, and not exactly easy to beat.

* ''[[Manga/SaintSeiya Saint Seiya]]'' has Ophiuchus Shaina start off as this in the classic series (before undergoing a HighHeelFaceTurn), and a few others like Geist (anime only) who is Shaina's sister, and Mermaid Thethis in the Poseidon saga.
** ''[[Anime/SaintSeiyaOmega Saint Seiya Omega]]'' brings more examples, among the most prominent ones Hornet/Scorpio Sonia, Gemini Paradox, the BigBad from the second season, Pallas, and her subordinate, Great Sword Gallia.


Added DiffLines:

*Early in ''LightNovel/ReZero'' the major threat is Elsa Granhiert. She's a polite raven-haired beauty with [[{{Stripperiffic}} exceptionally eccentric]] fashion sense. She is also a ruthless assassin with a disturbing appreciation for the beauty of her enemies' guts and the combat skills to put up a decent fight against one of the most powerful knights in the kingdom.
-->'''Elsa:''' If I lose my fangs, Iíll use my claws. If I lose my claws, Iíll use my bones. And if I lose my bones, Iíll use my life.

* Phrygiar Navaris from the ''Literature/CodexAlera'' is a psychotically obsessive swordswoman and one of the top five blades in her civilization - she normally hires herself out as a mercenary, and has racked up a kill count ''in the hundreds'' during her life (and those are just the ones we know about). Aquitainus Invidia from the same series is more like TheVamp, TheChessmaster, and the ReliableTraitor all in one person, but she's more than capable of getting her hands dirty if she has to.

* The series [[LightNovel/YoujoSenki Youjo Senki: The Saga Of Tanya The Evil]] has the titular character [[VillainProtagonist Lt. Tanya Degurechaff]], possibly one of if not the youngest examples of this trope, at only around ''[[ChildSoldier ten years old]]''. Yet on the battlefields of an alternate version of UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne, she is one of the most powerful and ruthless soldiers you could ever have the misfortune of meeting, even earning herself the nickname ''[[TheRedBaron The Devil of The Rhine]]''. Tanya is a mage born with an incredibly high amount of power, that makes blasting through entire companies of enemy mages and ground soldiers a breeze, not that she won't resort to cutting her enemies open with her bayonet. She is also an extremely ruthless, brilliant, and [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] leader, willing to get her own men killed simply for annoying her and only pretending to care about her troops or country to further her own personnel gain.

** Yang's trailer (Yellow) featured the elegantly TagTeamTwins, Melanie & Miltia(des) Malachite, among [[TheMafia Junior's]] mooks at his club. After Yang attacks and wipes the floor with all the other henchmen, they gang up on and manage to hold their own significantly better than Junior's more other more generically dressed men.

* Tex in ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' is not only the only woman in blood gulch (until much later), but also the only capable soldier. She's technically on the side of the Blue Team, which doesn't stop her from abusing and scaring the shit out of her allies. She is also the one character who wears black armor.
