* Hiroko Matsukada from ''Manga/HatarakiMan'' is practically an expy of [[KimiWaPetto Sumire]]. Same driven attitude to work (in practically the same job, no less!), same struggles with balancing work and personal life (and the fact that her professional ambitions have partially contributed to her being single in her late 20s), same issues with sexism where her co-workers value her contributions but see her as not feminine enough.

* Yukino Miyazawa from ''KareKano'' maintains a facade of outward perfection in order to obtain praise from others. Arima's accidental discovery of the girl behind the mask kicks off both the plot and her own path to self-discovery.

* Sumire in ''KimiWaPetto'' is an interesting case. As a woman in her late 20s, she represents the older age limit of this type. While she is well on the way to achieving professional success, she finds herself facing multiple personal anxieties due to the compromises and life decisions she had made along the way. [[spoiler: The epilogue shows a happy ending, where she has managed to combine a fulfilling career with a loving relationship, albeit with the very last type of man she would have expected.]]

If the Go-Getter Girl is in high school, she is very often a ClassRepresentative or StudentCouncilPresident, as well as focused on entering the IvyLeague, {{Oxbridge}}, or UsefulNotes/TokyoUniversity. College Go-Getter Girls will be racking up internships and academic distinctions as they position themselves for an appealing job when they graduate. The oldest a Go-Getter Girl is likely to be is her late 20s or early 30s; by this time, if they have continued to stay on the path to success, they will have begun to take on real responsibilities and grown into [[IronLady a different trope]].

Compare and contrast also with AcademicAlphaBitch. Also not to be confused with female characters who work with [[Manga/GetterRobo Getter Rays]].
