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.

** 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.
-->'''Tywin:''' Aren't most girls interested in the pretty maidens from the songs? Jonquil, flowers in her hair?
-->'''Arya:''' Most girls are idiots.

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.

* The character Angelica Smith (a.k.a Disruptor II) hated other women who she saw as being in the way of whatever she wanted. She would break other girls teeth for candy and snapped her foster mothers neck when she thought she was an obstacle for her step father's love.

* The film ''Film/CourageUnderFire'' [[DenzelWashington Colonel Nat Serling]] is investigating whether helicopter pilot Captain Emma Walden deserves the Medal of Honor for her actions in the first Gulf War. 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.

* The Podcast/RedPandaAdventures overflow with this. If it's not female villains belittling "other girls", it's heroine Kit Baxter being jealous of every woman within Toronto's city limits and talking about how hard it is to "take them seriously."

From the time in the feature-length Direct-to-DVD movie where she agrees with Peter after he claims LindsayLohan and all other women are a bunch of teases [[NoodleIncident leading her to claim that's]] [[BiTheWay why she went back to men]] to the time in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuyPresentsLaughItUpFuzzball'' where she was dismayed at no longer being the token woman in the parodies of the StarWars films. She also has made nasty comments about other women, especially about their appearances.

* Eva of ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' winds up developing into one of these, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone much to her own horror]], by arguing that her son George should have the headship of the family over her older brother Krauss's daughter Jessica. She feels very guilty about this, especially [[YouAreWhatYouHate since Eva herself battled sexism earlier in her life]] [[TheUnfavorite when she wasn't taken seriously by her father Kinzo because of her gender.]]

* [[Myth/GreekMythology Athena]] can occasionally act like one of these. She tends to help male humans over female ones, and once [[{{Medusa}} transformed one of her priestesses into a monster for getting raped]][[note]]at least in Ovid's ''Metamorphoses''; in the original mythology Medusa was ''always'' a monster[[/note]]. On the other hand, despite her [[TheVow Vow of Chastity]], she isn't as vindictive towards men that she gets angry at; while her half-sister Artemis ''killed'' a man for seeing her bathing naked[[note]]to twist the knife, she transformed him into a deer so he could be eaten alive by his own hounds[[/note]], Athena showed mercy to Tiresias for doing the same thing (and also gave him the gift of prophecy as compensation - it was an accident, after all).

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Even in as deeply a patriarchal setting as [[TheDungAges Westeros]], Cersei Lannister wins the gold medal. Utterly convinced that women in general are inferior, she believes herself to be the sole exception to the rule. Cersei often attributes men's lack of approval to simple misogyny and women's incompetence to their gender, even blaming her own flaws on her gender. Yet for all of Cersei's posturing, she is sadly the closest thing to a HystericalWoman the setting has to offer.

* ''Manga/NoMatterHowIlookAtItItsYourGuysFaultImNotPopular'': In the pilot episode, Tomoko regards her female classes as "sissies", "sluts", and "bimbos" to ease her inferiority complex. It's toned down in later episodes, though she still does not think highly of others girls besides her best friend.
