* ''Film/{{Hysteria}}'': Emily is the younger daugher of a widowed Doctor Dalrymple. She is a pretty, gentle and dainty young woman with fair skin and dark hair. (She is played by Felicity Jones who has the right look). She knows her father depends on her help in his London household and she is a very obedient and affectionate daughter. Because of her father's expectations, she tries to fulfil the Victorian ideal of "angel of the house". Later, by the end of the film, she knows herself better and wants to be more her own person, but she is still a very nice girl, with the promise that she will be more cheerful and happy.

* Luserina Barows from ''VideoGame/SuikodenV'' is a good example. Although she's not actually English (the series is set in a MedievalEuropeanFantasy land), but her hometown of Rainwall is basically the in-series equivalent of an English town and she is the [[BlueBlood Squire's daughter]]. In terms of personality and looks, she fits the bill perfectly, being sweet, kind, well-mannered and elegant, with flowing fair hair and a demure, pretty look. She also exhibits a good deal of SilkHidingSteel qualities, and is found to be pretty much running the place and keeping morale high during the events of the game.

*** Lady Sybil possibly fits closest of all, given her genuinely good nature, naturally beautiful looks and strong moral sense. However, her [[spoiler:decision to marry the (socialist and Irish Nationalist) chauffeur Tom Branson]] puts her very firmly in the SpiritedYoungLady category.
** Lavinia Swire, also from Downton, fits the bill too - she's sweet natured, gentle, naturally beautiful.....[[spoiler: [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth and has a tragic, Victorian-heroine style death bed scene, etc]]]]

** Sophy Hutton is a great example - she's pretty, pale-skinned and a LoveInterest for the series' hero Doctor Harrison and is very helpful to her widowed father - who, to top it all off, happens to be the village reverend.

An '''English Rose''' is a nostalgic idea of a beautiful young English lady. She is virtuous and possesses a certain type of modest, natural beauty. This character is always of English breeding, and likely to speak in [[BritishAccents the RP accent]].

** Cammy White shows what happens to an English Rose when you mix her with ActionGirl and MsFanservice. You'd never think of it if you judged her only by her VERY fanservicy looks, but her serious personality and her devotion to her TrueCompanions have more than a whiff of this archetype. She even has [[BritishAccents the RP accent]], specially in the later games. "Cammy White" (Camilla = "priestess", White = the colour of purity) is also an archetypal English Rose name.

** Julia, one of the "judgement girls" from VideoGame/StreetFighterIII, is the daughter of a wealthy English industrialist and a member of the "Young Ladies of the World" club. She is of an earnest disposition, and with her neat blonde hair and smart red riding clothes, she looks the part of a proper young English lady all set for the hunt.

* Liz Grainger from ''Series/WishMeLuck'' is the perfect embodiment of this trope: a pretty (but not too pretty) well-bred, upper-class young woman who is also courageous, principled and willing to [[WorldWarII serve her country.]]

* Evie Frye from ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate'' fits this trope well, whilst combining it with several traits from LadyOfWar into the mix via her role as a deadly assassin and master marks-woman. In appearance, she's a slender, petite young Londoner with freckled, rosy cheeks, and sports a PrimAndProperBun of chestnut hair. In character, she is calm, no-nonsense and is able to hold herself in any situation with a good deal of grace, despite the mayhem surrounding her.
