Segmented skirts (either skirts which consist of four or more overlapping "petal" strips, or actual plates of armour, which come down from the waistband) are often used as a way to make a suit of armour more feminine by adding in an armoured skirt, or, conversely, to mark out one of a group of fabric skirt wearers as tougher than the rest, without breaking the theme by giving her trousers. The correct name for the segments are pteruges.

* Astrid in ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' wears one, featured above. With spikes. She's as tough as any of the other characters, if not tougher. [[http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140116201123/howtotrainyourdragon/images/2/26/Astrid-httyd-2.jpg In the sequel]], it's paired [[PrettyInMink with a fur underskirt]] (without making her look any less tough).

* The female legionaries in ''{{Asterix}} and the Secret Weapon'' wear legionary armour that resembles miniskirts and leggings, as they're all huge, model-esque {{Statuesque Stunner}}s - the similar outfit is drawn to look realistically protective, square and usually rather dumpy on the male legionaries throughout the series. The female centurion has one of these, plus a moulded centurion plate that resembles a woman's torso.

* In the WhateleyUniverse, [[TheFairFolk Fey]] tries out a costume with this feature in "The Turks or the Geek". Phase points out the skirt-like thing is technically called 'pteryges' from the Greek, but Phase tends to be MisterExposition when given the chance.

* ''Series/{{Kaamelott}}'' has the Britons using this as an insult against the Romans, seeing as they run around in dresses and big feathery hats. The ManInAKilt trope is used for a one-time gag when the Scottish king is forced to show up at the Round Table in a blanket instead of armored pants, and [[LoopholeAbuse declares it the national dress in order to be able to participate]].
