* The novel ''Literature/TheBookOfJoan'' is a SpeculativeFiction revision of the Joan of Arc story. Joan is a young French woman who discovers she has powers stemming from the natural world and wages global war against the imperialist Jean d'Men. She is captured and burned at the stake as an eco-terrorist, becoming a martyr to her followers and a legend to all [[spoiler:(although it turns out she escaped burning and is still undermining d'Men in hiding)]].

* Joan of Arc (here called Joan la Pucelle) is a major character in [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare]]'s early history ''Theatre/HenryVIPart1''. In this incarnation she forgoes the crossdressing, sadly, but claims to be a holy virgin conscripted by God to aid the French king and kick the English out of France. To prove her worth, she defeats the king in single combat (prompting him to fall madly in love with her) and goes on to soundly defeat the English troops whenever she encounters them, becoming a saint to the French and a witch-warrior to the English. Strangely, one of her final scenes reveals that the jealous accusations of the English have actually been correct--she has been consorting with demons for her power and lying about her divine mission, although she is motivated by a genuine desire to help her country. She is subsequently captured and burned at the stake by the English.

* In the ''VideoGame/DragonAge'' series, the prophet Andraste combines the Joan of Arc trope (a woman of humble beginnings chosen by a god to lead an uprising against an oppressive foreign occupation, eventually getting burned at the stake) with elements of the Jesus narrative (both divine and human, preaching a gospel that created a church and taken into Heaven to reign at God's side) and Mohammed's life story (using military might to overthrow a polytheistic religious establishment and replace it with her own monotheistic one).

* {{Subverted|Trope}} and possibly {{deconstructed|Trope}} with Jone (sic) Half-Orc in ''Webcomic/YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic''. Jone starts as a sympathetic young character with humble origins who just turns out to be a natural fighter and on a mission from the orc-god Gruumsh; it's too bad that her eventual army of followers consists of self-deluded fanatics (including a self-styled prophetess "interpreting" Jone's wishes as she sees fit, since their savior-figure is unfortunately mute) and that Jone herself gets so caught up in her "crusade" that she ultimately ends up going AxCrazy beyond redemption.

Probably would've helped if Gruumsh hadn't given all of his potential "chosen ones" for the mission a daemonic SuperPoweredEvilSide.

* In the extra features on ''HardCandy'', when asked which historical figure her character was most like Ellen Page responded "Joan of Arc." Though Joan likely never [[spoiler: tortured people or made them hang themselves]].

Realizing her importance, it is highly likely her enemies will eventually exploit her own HonorBeforeReason to lure her into a trap and subject to a public trial and execution. This, of course, is bound to backfire, as even past her untimely death, she will be turned into [[InspirationalMartyr a larger-than-life mythic persona (such as a saint) by a zealous cult following that would continue to provide inspiration for generations]].

* The ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' version of Jeanne d'Arc is a fearless military leader of Orleans who joins the party because she believes the TeamPet is someone she saw in a vision who told her she would save the world. [[spoiler:Eventually she goes under the DespairEventHorizon and becomes corrupted into her Dark version as she led her troops into a massacre while going after corrupt nobles. She later has a ShesBack moment, becoming good again and kicks the ass of the [[EldritchAbomination Otherworldly Beings]] who corrupted her, fulfilling her vision of saving the world.]]

* A rare genderflipping of this trope would be [[MeaningfulName Jaune Arc]] of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', who is a male character [[WorldOfActionGirls in a primarily Action Girl cast]], uses a sword and shield, and is hinted to possibly be the leader of his team (revealed via ForegoneConclusion). The joke is that he's a far better leader than a fighter, since he was crafty enough to lie his way into [[WorldOfBadass Beacon Academy]] but didn't have the training to back it up (much like how the real Jeanne was an ActualPacifist constantly running a WoundedGazelleGambit on her own soldiers). [[UnskilledButStrong He DOES have the strength and weaponry to chop the heads off giant bears, but he has a long way to go before he can actually be a true Hunter]].
