* Farnese in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' is kind of presented like this at first: girl on a holy mission who fights (sometimes). Thing is, she's actually revealed to have no combat skill whatsoever (women being at the head of the order for symbolic purposes), the voices she hears actually come from demons (Joan of Arc's enemies accused her of this), and she's a pyromaniac. She eventually becomes an actual witch.

* Ursula from the ''[[{{Warhammer}} Slaves to Darkness]]'' trilogy managed to lead the fractured armies of the Empire to face the Chaos Warriors of the Norse in their own homeland. This led to an retaliatory invasion that nearly destroyed Kislev, but hey... What is interesting about her is that her possession of the legendary blade Ulfshard, the weapon of one of [[FounderOfTheKingdom Sigmar Unberogen]]'s own contemporaries, actually gave her a claim to the contested throne of the Sigmarite Empire in a time where every Elector Count was at the other's throat for the position. Various Counts attempted to leverage her in their own ways to gain power, which is ultimately the reason why her crusade against the Norse even happened. She spent her last days anonymously in a small convent, too. So consider her a {{Deconstruction}}.

Added DiffLines:

* Mélisande of ''Literature/MaleRising'' was this to the people of Rwanda. Caught up in the conflicts of the Congo during the Great War, she fled eastwards to the African Great Lakes and absorbed many kinds of beliefs and practices along the way, including ingesting psychoactive plants. Leading an army of followers, she deposed the king of Rwanda and instituted a peasant-herder commonwealth with her as a wandering Prophet-Queen.

* ''Franchise/DragonAge'':
** The lady prophetess Andraste from the series' lore is quite deliberately a Joan of Arc expy--in fact, the Chantry ([[TheChurch an organized religion based around her teachings]]) [[http://dgaider.tumblr.com/post/107742028094/surprisingly-dragon-age-got-me-really-interested started off]] in the writers' heads as a hypothetical question "What if {{Jesus}} had been Joan of Arc?"
** Leliana has shades of this archetype in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', as well, what with a French accent and claiming to be on a MissionFromGod. The parallels between her and Andraste are probably also deliberate.

* [[Characters/Warhammer40000Sororitas The Sisters of Battle]] of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' in general are modeled off of Jeanne d'Arc (note the fleur-de-lys for one thing), but the Living Saint makes it obvious.

* In a way, [[LadyOfWar The Boss]] from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'', although she's older than the usual examples. However, during WorldWarII she became a military leader at an early age, she fought for her country, and [[spoiler:once the truth about her [[FakeDefector fake defection]] comes out, she can be seen as a martyr.]]
