* Female Inklings in ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' have the "arms slightly down and out at the sides" variation when in the plaza. Averted in-game, though, where gender is [[PurelyAestheticGender purely aesthetic]].

* The page image is from the anime version of ''Literature/{{Paprika}}''. The style of running is even part of a transformation sequence when [[spoiler: Chiba changes into Paprika in the real world; Chiba is shown running as you would expect a woman in a hurry really would, then she's shown doing the Girly Run, and then she's Paprika]].

** However, in his film ''Anime/TokyoGodfathers'' Kon plays this trope for all its worth with Hana the transvestite. Especially effective when Hana girly-runs past a surprised pedestrian while thundering, "''She's a baby thief!''"
* Paprika from ''Literature/{{Paprika}}'' breaks into this at multiple points in the film. [[JustifiedTrope It makes sense]], given her [[spoiler: nature as hyper-feminized libido incarnate]].
** And used effectively near the end of the film: when [[spoiler: Atsuko]] transforms in Paprika to fight the [[spoiler: dream-creatures intruding into the real world]], she starts running like a normal person, then you see her running like Paprika, then you see Paprika.

* Parodied and lampshaded in the third ''Film/AustinPowers'' movie where Scott Evil, who's previously been just an everyday teenager is suddenly revealed to run in an exceedingly girly fashion. He's also sobbing madly.
** 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]].

* Creator/StevenSeagal especially in ''Film/HardToKill'' has the girliest run ever used by an action movie star. He seems to lose control of his arm while sprinting.
** This is a problem for Seagal in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkskuSXqUD0 all his films]].
* ''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 in ''[[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadmansChest Dead Man's Chest]]'' to the much more efficient running style of the cannibals.
** This is eventually {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in the [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanOnStrangerTides fourth film]] (it went more or less like this):

* In the ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' episode "Forever Phantom", the title character is physically unable to resume his secret identity as a human. He has his friends Sam and Tucker cover for him by dressing up in his clothes, and when it is Sam's turn to distract Danny's parents she runs off in plain sight of them, at which point Danny's father comments that Danny "runs like a girl".
** Curiously, Sam does not do a girly run--she runs 'normally,' and is actually quite athletic and fast.

* Velma and Daphne in ''ScoobyDoo'' would both run like this in the original series.
* Something of a weird inversion in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', when Stewie states he hates Meg's "manly walk".
** Played by straight however, by Peter when he thought Dr. Hartman sexually violated him (the doc really was trying to give Peter a prostate exam).
* In ''[[WesternAnimation/BlinkyBill The Adventures Of Blinky Bill]]'', Shifty Dingo is shown skipping like this in the Mother's Day episode. About the only masculine things about Shifty are the fact he owns a skateboard and red baseball cap.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' episode "The Spirit of Competition," Bolin, of all characters, does this with bonus InelegantBlubbering while fleeing the deeply hurtful sight of [[spoiler: his friend Korra (who he'd taken on a date ''the night before'') kissing his brother Mako]].
** Mako's run as he goes after Bolin to calm him down, while less exaggerated, isn't as macho as you might expect either.

In the most exaggerated Girly Run, the upper arms are pressed against the sides in order to control [[{{Gainaxing}} "bounce"]]. The lower arms do not swing freely, and her hands are held high in a delicate, open position, rather than in fists or the stiffly pointed position favored by proper athletes. Often she will flex her wrists. The thighs are held together, but the calves may windmill out slightly, giving her a knock-kneed look, and her feet are lifted straight up, as though she were marching. Additionally, she carries her back straight up from the hips to the shoulders, rather than bent forward into the run. In extreme cases, she may even lean ''back'' slightly.
