** Ironically, she intends to commit suicide by slitting her stomach open. This is the traditional ''masculine'' version of ''seppuku''. A ProperLady commits suicide by slitting her throat. If Motoko were to actually go through with her suicide, she would have failed at femininity ''again''.

* In one late episode of the first season of ''Anime/SailorMoon'', Usagi joins a club designed to help create "princesses", thinking that she could be more lady-like after the revelation that she was Princess Serenity. She flops with flying colors, the only thing she was good at was Frisbee throwing. The other girls join in and the only other people who flop are Rei and Minako. Which is a good thing when it stands revealed that the club was a trap by Kunzite, and Ami and Makoto need saving along with the other girls there.

* During Kjelle's supports with Severa in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', Severa forcefully attempts to give Kjelle a ladylike makeover. While she fails miserably with the makeup, she does succeed in developing better manners. Of course, Kjelle finds it entirely pointless and scorns the entire process.

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', TomboyPrincess Hinoka set aside almost any girly tasks to favor her ActionGirl training and sometimes is pretty lost in anything not related to fighting. In the ''Conquest'' path her much girlier sister Sakura says she hasn't been doing too well with [[spoiler: her training to become the Queen of Hoshido]], and in [[spoiler: the [[GoldenPath Revelations]] route]] another woman ([[spoiler: her {{foil}} Princess Camilla]]) offers to teach her [[TextileWorkIsFeminine how to sew]] but takes her a long while to do it well.

* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' does this oddly with the female lead [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Youko]]. She's not a {{Tomboy}}, but rather TheDitz, so her concepts of sexiness are questionable at best. She strives to become a "[[IceQueen Cool Beauty]]", but her idea of a [[http://bato.to/read/_/294473/jitsu-wa-watashi-wa_v7_ch57_by_underdog-scans/3 sexy pose]] looks like it came from a SuperSentai show, and several characters completely missed the fact that she shows just as much cleavage as her [[TheVamp perverted]] friend Shiho because she has absolutely no idea how to properly flaunt her larger-than-average bustline.

** To that point, there's an entire chapter in the manga where Youko engages in a "sexiness battle" with [[ChristmasCake Akari-sensei]] and [[OlderThanTheyLook Principal]] [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Akane]], with a tied-up [[UnluckyEverydude Asahi]]'s {{Nosebleed}} serving as their "gauge". All three of them fail so spectacularly that Rin (Asahi's [[KidFromTheFuture Granddaughter from the Future]] and a rather literal MoralGuardian) approvingly declares it a "sex-free sexiness battle".

her LoveInterest Asahi didn't even realize that she has her cleavage showing in her school uniform (despite Youko having [[BuxomIsBetter a generous bustline]]) until someone pointed it out to him.

This can lead up to AnAesop of the BeYourself variety, that it's okay for a woman to be masculine if she's most comfortable doing so, and she shouldn't change herself to please others. It can, of course, just as easily be full of UnfortunateImplications, either that something's wrong with her because she can't act feminine, that girliness is just too mysterious or weird for her, or that her inherent tomboyishness is [[RealWomenDontWearDresses a sign that she's better than girly girls]].

* Played with on an episode of ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger''. The girls use makeup for picture day, and end up looking like clowns. Justified, however, because a) they are young and have not been taught how to use makeup properly and b) they made their own makeup out of things like gravy and cranberry sauce.
