* Penny in the earlier seasons of ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', who was a TerritorialSmurfette who made disparaging and slut-shaming remarks about other women [[{{Hypocrite}} despite being no virgin herself]]. It has been gradually toned down ever since she was given female friends in the form of Bernadette and Amy, but it still pops up on rare occasion.

* '' WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': As mentioned on the DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything page, Peridot's views on Pearls eerily resembles misogynistic prejudice, despite Peridot being female-presenting.

** Arya Stark, at least in the TV series. Unlike her book counterpart, Arya makes it clear she does not like traditionally feminine pursuits or girls who like that stuff.

** Arya Stark, at least in the TV series. Stark also qualifies. Unlike her book counterpart, counterpart[[note]]In the books, Arya was a tomboy, but still defended the importance of the traditional gender roles women played and got along just fine with feminine girls so long as they didn't put her down for her own lack of femininity[[/note]], Arya makes it clear she does not like traditionally feminine pursuits or girls who like that stuff.

* {{Wrestling/Paige}} occasionally flirts with this, having disdain for anything [[RealWomenDontWearDresses too girly]] and claiming that the GirlyGirl Wrestling/BellaTwins weren't "real women".

* In ''Fanfic/OneYear'', one of [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Yu Narukami]]'s old friends, Hitomi Ayanokouji, has a mother who's like this. Mrs. Ayanokouji, who married into an extremely conservative and traditional family, strongly believes that women should StayInTheKitchen and that her daughter should accept her ArrangedMarriage, and so looks down on ambitious young women like Yu and Hitomi's mutual friend Sakura.



* Bella of ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' fame is very much this - she loathes any women who ever acts on her emotions (despite acting almost exclusively on her own emotions) but excuses any inappropriate male behavior with the "he was angry/upset/overwhelmed" excuse. Women are expected to act rationally every single time, but men are allowed to indulge in their emotions. The only female characters who escape this are ones who worship her (and even then, only female vampires).

Some girls [[TheLadette act like guys]]. Some go as far as being [[OneOfTheBoys almost considered guys]]. Most of them are portrayed as feminists (often the [[StrawFeminist straw kind]]), but then there are these. They will call people "girl" and "sissy" as insults. They think that women should StayInTheKitchen, and they're against all kinds of women's rights. They're Female Misogynists. People will remind them that they're girls themselves, [[MoralMyopia but they will deny it - or consider themselves a "honorary dude" or claim they're]] [[NotLikeOtherGirls "not like the other girls"]] [[MoralMyopia (i.e. they're ''better'' than the other girls, in their minds).]] Another variation, often appearing as an [[HeteronormativeCrusader extremely conservative housewife]], thinks that women are inferior to men and that she's "one of the good ones" who know their proper place.

* Titania, archenemy of ComicBook/SheHulk, has this as essentially her defining trait; She-Hulk is the only woman who's physically more powerful than Titania, so Titania obsesses with taking her down and beating her. This in large part fuelled the negative reception to her depiction in the 2014 ''Thor'' series where she's depicted supporting the new female Thor and serving as a TakeThatCritics towards the misogynistic segments of the fandom, which was just massively out of character.

A third variation can be combined with a feminist outlook (generally a [[StrawFeminist straw]] one, but PoesLaw dictates that they exist in RealLife as well). In the third variant, you have a character who hates all men and believes [[AllMenArePerverts they're naturally sexual predators]], and who therefore sees femininity itself as catering to what men want. This character will then [[RealWomenDontWearDresses attack and abuse any female that doesn't fit their idea of what 'feminism' should be]]. Expect slut shaming, high expectations, hatred towards TheChick and distaste for more traditionally feminine women.

* In {{Manga/Innocent}}, the main character's grandmother, is a strong-willed and confident IronLady, but is also eventually revealed to be firmly accepting and believing in the era's status quo, to the point that she becomes furious at her granddaughter stepping onto the execution platform to aid her brother, because she doesn't believe that men and women are equals.

When he interviews the members of Walden's crew, the wife of one crew member repeatedly insults Walden, making comments about her being "too butch", taking them into danger because she needed to be a hero, and starts to make a comment about "those women who want to be officers..." before her husband cuts her off, tells her to shut up and that she doesn't know what she's talking about.
