* Rhi'a from ''Anime/SandsOfDestrction'' is TheGunslinger in a show where every other character fights melee. However, this list of other characters also includes Morte, a girl with a {{BFS}}, which she's [[HairTriggerTemper quick to use]] to smash things (and it usually ''is'' [[BloodlessCarnage smashing, rather than cutting]]). The two of them tend to fight each other quite often, too. The [[Manga/SandsOfDestruction manga]] drops Rhi's guns and normally keeps her a NeutralFemale, but the one time she does join a fight, she uses her [[BreathWeapon Dragon Breath]] for a ranged attack.

* In Comicbook/TheWalkingDead, Andrea quickly becomes an elite sniper whose skills prove invaluable to Rick's group, even though she had no firearms training or experience before the zombie holocaust.

* ''Fanfic/SoulEaterTroubledSouls'' is a ''SoulEater'' fanfic that provides yet another inversion in two [=OCs=], [[SiblingTeam Tsuji and Rowena Ricardsen]]. Tsuji is an archer and works best supporting people from a distance while Rowena has SuperStrength and prefers close-range combat with her oversized sledgehammer.

* ''[[VideoGame/TheEndTimesVermintide Warhammer-The End Times: Vermintide]]'': Played straight and subverted in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbREAF-wmEg release trailer]]. While all the heroes have both melee and ranged abilities, the male Dwarf Ranger and Empire Soldier dispatch the [[RatMen Skaven]] with melee attacks, while the female Bright Wizard kills them with ranged magic. The male Witch Hunter inverts it, preferring to use guns, while the female Waywatcher subverts it by using both arrows and Elven blades to fight. * Rhi'a from ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestrction'' is TheGunslinger in a game where every other character fights melee. However, this list of other characters also includes Morte, a girl with a {{BFS}}; she's part of a BattleCouple with KnifeNut Kyrie, whose LimitBreak involves throwing several knives. You could almost argue that the two of them are inverting the trope, since he doesn't have to get up close to deal damage, even if throwing isn't precisely shooting.

** Inverted in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'': For the most part, Rey uses a staff for most of the film, and and Finn uses a blaster. However they don't use those weapons exclusively, since Rey does use a blaster later on and [[spoiler:they both, at different points, use Anakin's lightsaber, which Rey ends up with]].

Part of this is due to cultural taboos against showing [[WouldntHitAGirl women getting hit]]. It may also have to do with the fact that a [[{{Stripperiffic}} skimpy costume]] looks [[ChainmailBikini more plausible]] on someone who isn't in melee. While {{Action Girl}}s have long since become commonplace these days, heroines are still more likely to have ranged powers than the guys.

To some extent, physical reality is also reflected in that women tend not to have the muscle men do, so would be better off with ranged weapons.

* ''Film/TheHungerGames'': Katniss is a skilled archer, while Peeta is a wrestler whose main skill is physical strength. The rest of the Tributes fall into this as well with the exception of Marvel, whose skill with thrown spears is his hallmark (and the method behind his only on-screen kill).
