** 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.

** Estelle from ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' also. She has the straight-armed variety of girly run, and generally has feminine poses even in combat.

* 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.

Subverted in ''V'', where if the player characters are outside where there's actual room to run around, they'll ''haul ass''.

* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'': Captain Jack Sparrow uses the "arms flailing wildly" variant of a girly run; see it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUkRatOSxaI here.]] It's particularly noticeable in comparison to the much more efficient running style of the cannibals.
** This is eventually {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in the fourth film (it went more or less like this):

->''You see? Never be late for a plane with a girl. 'Cause a girl runs like a girl, with the little steps and the arms flailing out... You wanna make this plane, you gotta run like a '''man'''! Get those knees up!''

* In Act 1 of ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'', Sailor Moon makes her public debut while yelling at MonsterOfTheDay Morga assertively, but then enters the scene with arms upraised and unsteady gait, along with the SloMo effect usually reserved for an UnflinchingWalk. It underscores that, while Usagi's heart's in the right place, she's ''really'' green at the MagicalGirlWarrior thing.

It underscores that, while Usagi's heart's in the right place, she's ''really'' green at the MagicalGirlWarrior thing. While her running in-series improves to match her growing up, the opening to Season 3 falls back to this trope.

** The above quote, by Dr. Evil, is said immediately after the above. What makes this even funnier, is that not even ten minutes later, after formulating a plan [[spoiler:with his brother, Austin Powers]], he can be seen [[HypocriticalHumor running like a girl.]]

* Kairi and Namine from ''KingdomHearts''. Xion and Aqua, however, have normal looking runs, which might have something to do with the fact that they're playable characters.

** Aerith in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII: CrisisCore'', though she moves with a lot more ladylike dignity when she's older. This gets amusing in the 'escape from Shinra tower' cutscene in the original game, where (likely due to the graphical hurdles posed by her long dress) everyone else is running out of the tower, while Aerith is simply daintily walking at ''the same speed''.

* The default female walking/running animation in ''SecondLife'' is a sort of mincing waddle with the forearms flailing stiffly at the sides. (Well, the male default animation isn't really any better.) It looks frankly ridiculous; getting an animation override for this at the earliest opportunity is strongly recommended.

* In ''VideoGame/NeoSteam'', female characters that aren't of the Pom race tend to do the lower body half of this when they're not carrying a two handed weapon. It's somewhat jarring out of elves and lyell(catgirls), since you would associate such races with gracefulness.
