* {{Fantomah}} may be an example. She's a blonde white woman who lives in the jungle and protects it from various {{Evil Colonialist}}s and indigenous villains. However, she has extreme magical powers to the extent of being a PhysicalGod, and a sadistically vengeful personality, which combine to make her seem more like a HumanoidAbomination than an actual human.

** Do not confuse her with the half-animal Panthea by underground artist Trina Robbins. (And Pantha from ''Vampirella'' doesn't even fit the trope.)

* ''Rulah, Jungle Goddess'' was Fox Feature's response to ''Sheena, Queen of the Jungle''. Her real name was given variously as either Jane Dodge (''Zoot'' #7) or Joan Grayson (''Rulah, Jungle Goddess'' #20). In the latter version, Rulah is a young aviatrix on a solo flight over Africa when her plane loses control and crashes. She replaces her clothes (which were destroyed in the crash) with a bikini made from the skin of a dead giraffe. Soon afterwards, Rulah saves a local tribe from an evil woman; the grateful tribespeople declare her queen. Rulah decides to remain in the jungle as its protector.
** Rula's comic adventures are sometimes startlingly violent; and there are generous helpings of LesYay among Rulah and her suspiciously-pale native maidens. Said maidens being the subjects of peril, hairdressing, abduction, experiments, and much hugging when rescued.

* Fantomah may or may not be an example. She's a blonde-haired and generally white-looking jungle adventurer, but she never gets an origin story, and her [[PhysicalGod ludicrous power level]] and [[HumanoidAbomination extremely creepy personality]] cast doubt on whether she's even human.

* Sapphire Birch, ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'''s take on the female avatar from the game, takes her role as [[{{Mon}} Pokémon]] trainer and researcher so seriously she actually [[GoingNative went native]], wearing clothes made from leaves and moss and growing her fingernails into claws. She has little trouble reintegrating into human society, but she retains the [[BadassNormal mind-boggling strength and agility]] she developed in the wild.

The DistaffCounterpart of {{Tarzan}} of the Apes, this is a young woman of European extraction who has been raised in a [[DarkestAfrica jungle environment]], usually [[RaisedByWolves by animals]]. Despite her upbringing, though, she has managed to grasp the basic rudiments of [[HulkSpeak English]], tools and fashion -- she is frequently seen wearing fetching leather or {{Fur Bikini}}s and wielding a spear. She is far more likely to have RapunzelHair than WildHair, and her legs and armpits will be inexplicably hairless.
