* Malcolm Tucker from ''Series/TheThickOfIt'' and ''Film/InTheLoop'' is an aggressive, foul-mouthed, violent alpha male... who runs like a girl.
** Peter Capaldi already ran like a girl, back when he was Danny in ''Film/LocalHero''. It came across as rather [[CuteClumsyGirl adorable]] then.
*** And now he's [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]], and yes, he still runs like that.

* In ''Film/StandByMe'' it was used as an acting technique. WilWheaton was required by the plot to lose a foot race to River Phoenix, but discovered that he couldn't do it naturally. He found that by flailing his limbs about, it slowed him down enough to lose but at the same time he looked like he was actually trying harder to win.

Added DiffLines:

* When Ken is being chased by Bart in the first episode of ''Series/DirkGentlysHolisticDetectiveAgency'', he demonstrates a decidedly unimpressing running style. It's made all the worse by the fact that Bart, who [[GenderBlenderName the name notwithstanding]] ''is'' a [[DarkActionGirl girl]], runs a lot more skillfully (and quickly catches up with him).

* The carpenters got a very girly run in the 3DS remake of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]''.
** And it was already extremely girly in the N64 original!

** This is a common trait among Eli Wallach characters. If you look at Calvera in ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'', you'll see he runs like this.
** Max Lozoya from 'Don't Turn the Other Cheek' has the arms-flailing variety.



* As mentioned in his roles, the late, great Eli Wallach did this quite a bit.

* For some reason, Nanoha routinely did this in the first season of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. Fortunately for anyone taking her seriously she could and did fly more often than not when in costume.

* ''All'' living characters in the ''VideoGame/FatalFrame'' games run slowly and in the girliest, most delicate manner possible. Even the males. Special mention goes to Miku Hinasaki, the ''de facto'' PlayerCharacter from the first game, who becomes even ''girlier'' in the third one, complete with flailing arm.
