Jeanne d'Archétype is a fictional character inspired by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_of_Arc Saint Joan]] [[UsefulNotes/JoanOfArc of Arc]]. This can incorporate various elements of the historical Joan's story. This character is AlwaysFemale, usually young, often an ActionGirl, and often of humble origin. Her devotion to a religion, her country, or simply a desire to protect her loved ones causes her to assume an active role in liberating the oppressed from an overbearing force, eventually becoming not only a respected leader, but also a living symbol and a reminder of just how unjust the oppressors are if they bring out the warrior [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass in the most unlikely of people]]. Therefore, her example directly inspires many otherwise ordinary people to follow in her footsteps and join the same cause.

* 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). [[UnskilledButStrong He has a long way to go, however]].

* ''Joan'' (''Jeanne/Jehanne'' in France) by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko (of ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamTheOrigin'' fame among others), starts off with Joan of Arc's actual execution. The manga's volumes though focus on a young girl following in - and mirroring - Joan's footsteps in medieval France.

* Katniss Everdeen from the ''TheHungerGames'' is a deconstruction. She's an ActionGirl from humble origins who stands up to oppression to protect a loved one and becomes a beacon of hope for the rebellion. However, off camera she's actually a pragmatic survivor who [[NotInThisForYourRevolution never really cared about the rebel cause]] and is in it solely to protect her family. Later on when she starts having visions it's a result of trauma, drug addiction, and possible brain damage rather than any divine inspiration.
