* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Ex-lieutenant Mashiro has kicks so powerful a single [[CallingYourAttacks "Mashiro Kiiiick!"]] can destroy a gigantic [[TheHeartless Hollow]]. When going berserk through Hollowfication in "Turn Back The Pendulum", Captain Shinji Hirako had to block her kicks with his sword, which didn't even scratch her shoes. She can fire even freaking [[KamehameHadouken Ceros]] with her kicks.

** The Combat {{Cyborg}} Nove, who was introduced in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS''. While she will occasionally use punches, most of her attacks are kicks. This is probably done to contrast her to the mostly punching Subaru, [[spoiler:who is [[CainAndAbel the Abel to her Cain]]]].

** The possible TropeCodifier: [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Chun-Li]], pictured above.
*** Strangely enough, she had some effective (and pretty hard) punches in both 2 and the Alpha games. It wasn't until 3 that her "legs that took down an organization" status really took hold, with most of her punches replaced by ineffective/silly looking chops or slaps. In particular, her crouch hard punch took a ''big'' hit.

** [[AnimeChineseGirl Pai-Chan]] mainly uses kicking attacks in TheAnimeOfTheGame. However, the bad guys catch up with her fighting style, and [[FauxActionGirl she's ended up useless]] in any non-{{mook|s}} battle. More exactly, Pai's Enseiken fighting style is said in-TV series to be useless in some battle conditions. The GenreSavvy BigBad, Liu Kowloon is also a martial artist and knows about this very well -- often sending out non-Mooks that are specially trained into creating said conditions and neutralising [[RunawayFiancee Pai]] [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty so they can bring her back to him]] (there's even a whole scene in the beginning in which Kowloon explains this to Pai). Said conditions don't apply in the games for obvious reasons, so she retains her fighting competence.

* Sheva of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'' mainly uses kicks as her physical attacks, in contrast to Chris, who uses his ridiculously large arms for all his melee moves.
** Also to contrast Chris, Jill uses kick physicals but are straighter than Sheva's acrobatics.

** [[{{bifauxnen}} King]] is the series' foremost example, being a practicioner of the Nak Muay style of kickboxing. While her punches consists of jabs, hooks, and elbow strikes that inflict light damage, her kicks are generally stronger and are her chief means of attack. Even her [[KiAttacks "Venom Strike"]] and [[SpamAttack "Phantom Venom"]] are performed with her legs.

* Eve from ''VideoGame/DaemonBride'' is a miniskirted dominatrix rock singer who fights by kicking with blades on her boots. She throws KiAttacks from her legs as well. Those blades were actually the Demon she made contract with and she abuses him like a dominatrix, said Demon (Beelzebub) doesn't seem to mind.
* Liu Yungmie from ''[[VideoGame/FightersHistory Fighter's History Dynamite]]'' is probably the very first FightingGame chick to kick with punch buttons, block with her legs, throw opponents with her legs, and send out KiAttacks with her legs.

* [[ClassyCatBurglar Rouge the Bat]] in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' uses attacks with kicks rather than punching. It becomes even more evident in ''Sonic Battle'' where her entire fighting style is centered around kicks that make her attacks both powerful and fast. She even gets an upgrade which allows her to dig using her legs.

* Black Widow and Zarda from ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble''. In the first season, Widow tends to have some closeups where whenever she kicks her legs appear as very attractive. but in the second season, the designs of her hair, eyes, body, legs, arms, and costume improve. whenever there is a closeup of widow kicking with her legs(or crossing them), they are shown to be very powerful and curvaceous.

* Mystique once again, this time in ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen''. There's a particularly memorable kick in her introductory episode, when she's fighting Wolverine. He swipes at her, and she ducks...but while she's there, she throws out a back kick ''over her own head'' and nails him in the face. It's right at the beginning of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjR33chbIhQ this video]] if you want to see it.

In reality, women [[note]] and most men who don't explicitly aim to become a TopHeavyGuy - after all, legs carry more weight and get more use by default[[/note]] do instinctively use their lower bodies less than their upper bodies, which means that they're naturally more inclined to use kicks than punches. Also, as the first instinct of any attacker is to [[StandardFemaleGrabArea bind or otherwise incapacitate the arms]] (and leave the legs relatively free so that you don't have to carry her), it's quite practical to deal damage with your means of locomotion. And ''every'' girl knows the classic "[[GroinAttack kick 'em in the nuts]]" move for self-defense--it can hurt women too, by the way.
