* Mitsuru Kirijo from ''{{Persona 3}}'' may have originally have taken on this role because of her family responsibilities, but she certainly pulls it off (even if she sometimes thinks about what it would be like otherwise).

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': Judy Hopps was the top student at the police academy and even when she's shunned as a meter maid, she gives her best to show what she's made of. She willingly works harder to compensate for her small stature and discrimination she faces as a bunny.

* Eilonwy from the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'' is very devoted to achieving excellence as an enchantress, and, like Hermione, can be somewhat snotty to those she sees as slacking off.

* Helga from ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' is a deconstruction. While Olga has good leadership skills and regularly gets straight As in college, she is held to extremely high expectation by her parents. Also, she is driven to a mental breakdown over a B grade (which Helga forges, mind you).

* Shizune from ''KatawaShoujo'' has this personality, while at the same time needing to deal with her deafness. Perhaps because of this, she often comes off as more abrasive than others of this type.
* Young Eva from ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' started out like this in high school. Then her father told her she could never become family head because she was a woman. Things got worse from there...

* Class persident Summer from ''Film/SchoolOfRock'' is so ambitious and driven, she doesn't see a point to goofing around and playing music. She is only ten.



* Rory Gilmore and Paris from ''Series/GilmoreGirls''.
* Andie and Joey from ''Series/DawsonsCreek'', with both of them, being part of troubled families and suffering from a terrible home life, consequently becoming ambitious overachievers.

** Bonnie (played by Lisa Weil, veteran in the GoGetterGirl field -see entry on ''Series/GilmoreGirls''), is depicted as an older version of this trope.
* On season 2 of ''Series/VeronicaMars'', Angie Dahl is one of Veronica's rivals to a desirable scholarship. Angie dips into all of the bad aspect of this trope to get it, but Veronica uncovers her lies.
* Rachel Berry from ''Series/{{Glee}}' is set on becoming a broadway diva, no matter what. She is active in every possible extracurricular and has straight A's.
** Quinn also fits the trope - she studies hard, is captain of the cheerleading squad, and will stop at nothing to be prom queen.
* Season 6 gives us Jane, a girl so ambitious she manages to turn an all-male prep school co-ed by insisting on her right to good education.
