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.

* ''Manga/AngelDensetsu'''s Ryoko's favorite move is a high kick, though it's far from her only attack.
* Annie Leonhart from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' uses an unique fighting style, influenced heavily by Muay Thai. She focuses primarily on kicks, allowing her to quickly disable larger and stronger opponents. It doubles as FridgeBrilliance, since the military's primary equipment depends so much on having incredible leg strength and flexibility.
* ''Anime/AyanesHighKick'' is about [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly what it says.]] Though it isn't by choice, since Ayane aspires to become a pro wrestler, but gets duped into taking up kickboxing instead, by her [[TricksterMentor unscrupulous coach]], Kunimitsu.
* Ringo in ''Manga/BananaNoNana'' has, for lack of a better word, the superpower of incredibly strong legs. This results in fast running, high jumps, and, of course, this trope, typically applied directly to the face at maximum power.
* Sen Yarizui the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Ice Witch]] from ''LightNovel/BenTo''. While the other fighting girls use their fists or {{Improvised Weapon}}s of various sorts, she fights almost exclusively with kicks.
* [[NiceGirl Enju]] [[AllLovingHero Aihara]] in ''LightNovel/BlackBullet'' fights with her feet when combating the Gastrea. Justified, as the soles and the tip of the boots she wears are made of Varanium, and she's a [[AnimalMotifs Rabbit-Type]] Cursed Child, making her exceptionally good at jumping and kicking.
** It's also implied the reason she fights strictly with her feet is because [[TechnicalPacifist she absolutely refuses to kill a human being]] and want to fight the Gastrea at the same time.



* Crystal from ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' primarily used kicks to throw her Pokeballs instead of using her hands. This was due to at one time being unable to use her arms and hands for the task.
* Calynn from ''LightNovel/GatheringTheEnchanted'' uses leg armor to enhance the power of her kicks. She uses her feet as her only weapon.
* Kisara Nanjo from ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' is trained in Tae Kwon Do, a kick-heavy fighting style.
* Inner Moka from ''Manga/RosarioToVampire''. She defeats most of her battles with [[CurbStompBattle one single kick]]! [[spoiler:[[GenerationXerox She got it from her mom]] Akasha Bloodriver, the strongest vampire of all time (in that universe).]]



* In ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' spin-off manga ''Shikkoku no Hana'', a highschool girl named Tsukimori Azusa has gained contractor ability in a form of super strong legs. She proceeded to leap through city blocks InASingleBound and [[{{Gorn}} kick people]] [[LudicrousGibs apart]].
* Nikaido from ''Manga/{{Dorohedoro}}'' mainly uses kicks.
* Lucy Heartfilia from ''Manga/FairyTail'' usually summons her Celestial Spirits or uses her whip in a fight, but when she goes unarmed she usually uses mainly kicks. One of her attacks is even called "[[{{Anticlimax}} LUCY KICK]]!!!". Her kicks are sometimes PlayedForLaughs, but have also shown usefulness in real battle.
* Calynn from ''LightNovel/GatheringTheEnchanted'' uses leg armor to enhance the power of her kicks. She uses her feet as her only weapon.
* Subverted in ''LightNovel/IsThisAZombie'' you'd expect a Mystletainn Kick to be, well, [[ShapedLikeItself a kick]], but...

* Kisara Nanjo from ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' is trained in Tae Kwon Do, a kick-heavy fighting style.



* Being a member of a race of incredibly strong humans, Morgianna from ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic'' has kicks that can shatter rock and instantly knock out tigers (a manga by the same author of ''Manga/SumomoMoMomoMo'').
* Syal Fineded in ''Manga/MotherKeeper'' uses a variety of weapons and fighting styles, but usually she'll get some kicks in and they're her main weapon against most enemies.

* In the ''Manga/TriGun'' movie, Amelia kicks the crap out of two bounty hunters to the point that they try to grab her legs to stop her. Later, though, like most characters in the series, she mostly uses her gun.
