The majority of {{Action Girl}}s out there are all quite physically attractive and feminine in their own right, but there tends to be an arbitrary line drawn between exactly how feminine an ActionGirl can be. This character defies that. She will be [[SilkHidingSteel tough as leather and as soft as silk]]. If there is a TomboyAndGirlyGirl situation then she will be the GirlyGirl but will not be any less of a badass. Traits of the Girly Bruiser can include having a [[TheFashionista love of fashion and make-up]], having stereotypically "girly" hobbies, [[CutenessProximity loving cute animals]], and loving [[PinkMeansFeminine the colour pink]] (or [[TrueBlueFemininity other]] [[GracefulLadiesLikePurple colors]] with similar connotations of femininity), in addition to doing and liking those activities as much as she does and likes kicking ass. She may even do her ass-kicking while wearing frilly girls clothes, though it's not necessary. However, she's not necessarily lacking in [[GirlyGirlWithATomboyishStreak tomboyish qualities]].

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Hailey Heleti is an elegant noble who is fond of dancing, flirting and fashion. The dancing influences her fighting style and she has special hunting outfits for spearing plague wolves. In a fist-fight she and [[{{Tomboy}} Tiza are evenly matched.]]



** While Cordelia does [[TookALevelInBadass take a level in badass]] on ''Buffy'', she legitimately became this on ''Series/{{Angel}}'' through some serious [[CharacterDevelopment character development]]. It's a similar case to Buffy but minus the super slayer powers.

* Every single Pink [[Franchise/PowerRangers Power Ranger]] is this by default. The exceptions are [[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy Kendrix, Karone]] and [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Rose]] aren't really that feminine outside of the pink suit. Two of them don't normally wear pink in their everyday attire either.

* Videogame/{{Pokemon}} features Champion Iris in ''Black 2'' and ''White 2''. She wears a frilly dress, has a starry rainbow battle theme, does a pretend roar when you challenge her... and then sends out a Hydreigon.

Added DiffLines:

* Roxy from ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' is presented as the "tough girl" of The Misfits (especially before the SixthRanger Jetta came along). She is still presented as feminine as the others and her limelight episode "Roxy Rumbles" she dresses herself with jewels and a cute pink dress when she wins the lottery.

* ''Anime/KillLaKill'': Between the pink dress, the hairbow, the earrings, pigtails and cutesy speech patterns, Nui Harime is the girlest character in this show. She can also beat down on 3 Star uniforms with her pretty parasol, and [[GigglingVillain giggles cheerfully]] while reminiscing about [[YouKilledMyFather murdering Ryoko's rather]].

* Yukiko Amagi of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'': She's sweet, well-mannered, often dresses in traditionally "feminine" clothing, and overall is the [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl Girly Girl to her best friend Chie's Tomboy]]. She is also not someone you would want as your enemy: In the TV World, she possesses high-level fire magic (though this tends to take a back seat to her being TheMedic), while in the normal world, she shows herself to be fairly {{Badass}} when handling a sleazy reporter who is threatening her family's inn. (Although without resorting to violence in this particular case.)

* In ''Manga/{{Aruosumente}}'', Rita Rina is one of Lante's White Knights, wears rather form-fitting armour which obviously includes a skirt, wears her hair long and is in love with Lante. At the same time, she has no problems defeating several opponents during the tournament without breaking a sweat.
* Lizzie of ''Manga/BlackButler'' wants to be a perfect lady for Ciel, is very cutesy and loves to wear pretty dresses. She also is very capable of [[spoiler:striking down zombies with swords while wearing a frilly dress therefore saving Ciel when he was trying to save her, and knocking Ciel on his bottom when she thinks he's cheating on her and attempting to hit him]].
* ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' has Tionishia, easily the most feminine member of MON who has a penchant for cute things and loves shopping for girly dresses. She also happens to be a ''seven foot five inches tall ogre'', with all of the power and strength that implies.

Added DiffLines:

* Emma Leroy on ''Series/CornerGas'' is this trope aged up about 40-50 years. She's an old lady with standard old lady hobbies like knitting and gardening, but also has borderline inhuman strength and a fairly short temper. ''Nobody'' ever wants to be on Emma's bad side.

Added DiffLines:

* Raindrops in ''FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse'' is stronger than most earth ponies, knows martial arts, and regularly goes out and smashes rocks to gravel to burn off her anger so she won't end up crippling somepony again. She also loves romance novels, squees over the Pinkie/Bluie ship, and dresses up in a pink Princess Platinum costume for Nightmare Night.
