* In the 1977 film ''{{Film/Julia}}'', the title character essentially fulfills the trope. The twist is that the main character being inspired to action is also female and both of them are presumably hetrosexual.

* TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}: The Bretonnian knights, being Arthurian knights in France, follow the cult of the Lady, a mystical figure who gives visions and quests, leading to drinking from the Grail. Warhammer being [[CrapsackWorld the cheerful and happy place it is]], the Lady may or may not be an elaborate hoax pulled off by the [[FairFolk Wood Elves]] to protect their lands.

* Bioware games tend to have one good female character as a romantic option for the PlayerCharacter, and they tend to get upset with you if you do something ForTheEvulz. Obviously, these ''are'' Bioware games, so this trope can just as easily be PlayedStraight, {{averted}}, {{subverted}} (you CorruptTheCutie), {{inverted|Trope}} (the player character could be the inspirer), etc.
** ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' had Bastila Shan.
** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' had Leliana.
** ''Franchise/MassEffect'' had Ashley Williams.

* Any time a woman is on the British throne, expect her to be invoked as this. All the way from Boadicea to UsefulNotes/QueenVictoria (this was especially prevalent in Queen Vicky's time), and even the current Queen.
