* In ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Barrayar]]'' Cordelia ends up leading a small team of people into the [[spoiler: capital to save Miles' uterine replacator]]. This ends up going not quite to plan, and she winds up confronting [[spoiler: Vidal Vordarian in his rooms. She tells him to stop the war. He declines... so she has him decapitated, carries his head away in a bag, and burns the Imperial residence down behind her]]. She explains the expedition to her husband and his would-be allies as "shopping" and offers to show them what she bought. They become very cooperative.

* Like A Song of Ice and Fire above, ''Series/GameOfThrones'' shows just how this trope works with Daenerys, forced into a arranged marriage with a barbarian king. She quickly takes to his society's customs and pushes him to treat her as an equal, which gains his respect. She begins standing up to her abusive brother as well as the practice of RapePillageAndBurn, after her baby is threatened Daenerys approves of death by immolation, an act she would later do herself. She frees the slaves of her tribe and promises those who would harm them will [[BewareTheNiceOnes die screaming,]] sets about bringing justice to the Seven Kingdoms, and shows that she is a master at DisproportionateRetribution.

* The [[PlantPerson Sylvari]] of Guild Wars 2 may be in many senses beautiful, hopelessly idealistic, aligned-to-good, kind and compassionate folks who are naive to much of the harsh realities of Tyria, and they may very well be more attuned to nature than any other race in the world- but they constantly remind other, tougher races that roses possess thorns, and their trained soldiers are capable of being just as lethal on a battlefield as most other trained soldiers of other races.

* ''TheNextFrontier'': [[VideoGame/KerbalSpaceProgram The Kerbals]] are a ProudScholarRace of {{Bold Explorer}}s and scientists who haven't known real war in decades, but their first interstellar mission uses a starship that is quite well armed, and they also aren't above employing a bit of subtle GunboatDiplomacy by being quite up-front (purely in the spirit of full disclosure, of course) about [[KzintiLesson just what their FTL drive is capable of doing to a planet]].

** From the expansion pack, Foreman Domai of [[ChummyCommies the Free Drones]] and Datajack Sinder Rose of [[PlayfulHacker the Data Angels]]. Domai's end goal is a social democratic society where the people work together to ensure everyone is happy and prosperous, while Rose's end goal is an anarchist society with maximum personal liberty for everyone. Domai is also the most explicitly violent and politically aggressive leader, and Rose wouldn't think twice about sending a probe team to hack into your network and steal all your secret weapons to turn them on you.
