The Femme Fatale is generally villainous, and heroic exceptions--in an artificial context to snare the bad guy--are closer to HeroicSeductress. Frequently, she is a WildCard, changing sides according to her own desires and goals; she does not often go through a HighHeelFaceTurn. If she's actually a kind-hearted person who puts up this facade for fun, this is TricksterGirlfriend.

HighHeelFaceTurn. If she's actually a kind-hearted person who puts up this facade for fun, this is TricksterGirlfriend.

* Franchise/{{Batman}}'s RoguesGallery gives us quite a few, with [[PlantPeron Poison Ivy]] and [[ClassyCatBurglar Catwoman]] standing out. They have both repeatedly tried to beguile him, though Poison Ivy cheats by using pheromones. And well, Batman technically ''is'' a detective who lives in a ViceCity...

* The ''Series/DeepSpaceNine'' NoirEpisode "Necessary Evil" has a suspect who oozes this trope. [[spoiler:It's a RedHerring as while she ''is'' a villain, the real FemmeFatale murderer turns out to be series regular Major Kira, whom the investigator Odo is secretly in love with.]]

** It's subverted with Ashi, a deadly but sexy young lady of the Daughters of Aku who would fit the trope to a tee, but instead she attempts to kill Jack, [[spoiler:and then romances him later]].

* ''Film/RockNRolla'' has Stella, who deconstructs the archetype: She has the looks (which allows her to play all sides in order to obtain a whole lot of money stolen from TheMafiya (twice!)), but unfortunately she doesn't really has the smarts to go with it (she became a ''way'' too obvious suspect for the person who did the InsideJob and the only reason she's not found early on is because her boss (the leader of said Mafiya) likes her too much to really listen to [[TheDragon his Dragon]])... [[spoiler:and what does her in is that she accepts a painting that she should have known her boss liked a lot (had she actually bothered to listen to him in details other than what she cared about), and in fact was berserk about it having been stolen, and placed it in her home in a place where he would see it the moment he walked in. Whatever he did to her in retaliation, [[FridgeHorror we were probably better off not seeing]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Blacksad}}'': Surprisingly, mostly {{averted}} for a comic so steeped in 1950s FilmNoir. Of Blacksad's love interests, Natalia Wilford is TheLostLenore for Blacksad whose worst crime was being a bit of a vain woman, and Alma Mayer is a BrainyBrunette NiceGirl. [[MeaningfulName Jezebel]] Karup sort of fits the archetype, but is really a subversion of the trope since the person she seduced to lead him to his doom is not the detective hero but the leader of a racist lynch mob [[spoiler:who also happens to be her father]].
