* [[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.

* The Panther girls in the ''Literature/{{Gor}}'' series. They despise the female slaves, seeing them as weak and inferior.

* 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.

* '' WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': As mentioned on the DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything page, Peridot's views on Pearls eerily resembles misogynistic prejudice, despite Peridot being female-presenting. Granted, the Gems lack any real gender per say and [[spoiler: the Homeworld has a strict caste system, with Pearls being a SlaveRace, with owning one a high status symbol. Our Pearl is considered defective for wanting more out of her life.]]

* Serena Joy from ''Literature/TheHandmaidsTale'' made a living as an advocate before Gilead took over, claiming that women should refrain from taking up careers and fighting for equal rights and instead seek a life of blissful peace in servitude to their husbands. Of course, now that she has (or rather, has been forced into) everything she preached about, she's pissed. This is probably a TakeThat against Phyllis Schlafly, who famously campaigned against the Equal Rights Amendment on the grounds that women should {{stay in the kitchen}} while herself being a lawyer and activist who [[{{hypocrite}} didn't follow her own dictum]]. ** Also, the [[ApronMatron Aunts]], whose job is to train and indoctrinate the Handmaids. One incident has them SlutShaming a 14-year-old girl [[DefiledForever for being gang-raped]], [[UsefulNotes/VictimBlaming saying she led the rapists on.]]

* Phyllis from the ''Series/TheOfficeUS'', who at one point claims that she does not want a female manager for numerous offensive reasons, all the while repeatedly claiming that she is not sexist. ** This one is actually [[TruthInTelevision Truth in Television]], as many studies have shown that women generally would rather not work for a female boss.

* Louise Belcher on ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' doesn't get on with most of the girls her age, and finds her mother and older sister boring and annoying. Oddly enough, this seems to be more out of immaturity than her usual malice. ** Her brother Gene is a milder gender-flipped example. He gets along with the guys in their group and admires his dad, but has stated he prefers being friends with women and likes to see himself as [[OneOfTheGuys one of the girls]].
