She gets straight A's in her classes, while also taking charge of multiple school clubs and volunteering at a homeless shelter in her spare time. She's unfailingly polite to her peers, older adults, and younger children alike. She might not be a fashion plate, but she never steps outside her home without looking perfectly presentable. Nobody doubts that big things are to be expected of her.

* WesternAnimation/KimPossible.



* Blossom of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''. "Power-Noia" revealed that she has a serious complex for being perfect.
* Courtney from ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' and its sequels.

** And, [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E3LessonZero in the second season]], [[SanitySlippage a brief grasp of insanity]] when she is about to fail her ''homework''.


Added DiffLines:

* 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).
