** Rose Quartz. Her appearance and demeanor scream either "plucky princess" or "collected queen" depending on her mood. She was soft-spoken and kind, and made the decision to be a mother at the cost of her own corporeal existence. She also led a successful rebellion against Homeworld and was extremely capable of fighting with or without her sword and shield.

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' has [[AloofDarkHairedGirl Vietnam]], who is described as such by Himaruya. [[TeamMom Ukraine]] appears to be a FragileFlower, but her profile [[BewareTheNiceOnes practically describes her as this.]] Not only that, but she also carries an elegant saber with her military uniform.

Oh, and given the fact that she beats up Prussia sometimes, Hungary counts.

* In ''Anime/MaiHiME'', Shizuru Fujino is always ever-so-graceful, even when holding a giant [[NaginatasAreFeminine naginata]] in her hands. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Just don't make her angry]], [[PsychoLesbian or win her affection]].
** Her counterpart from ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}'', Shizuru Viola, is probably an even better example. Everything Fujino has, she has too, ''without'' the whole '[[LoveMakesYouEvil goes batshit insane]]' thing. On the other hand, she's [[GoodBadGirl a bit more sexualized]] as well.

* In ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'', Isabelle Lightwood is the daughter of an old, prestigious, Shadowhunter family. She herself is a very talented DemonSlayer and manages to fight quite effectively even while wearing dresses and high heels. Her preferred tactic is to WhipItGood using her weapon of choice, an enchanted whip made of electrum (an alloy of gold and silver). Also noted for BeautyIsNeverTarnished -- she can join her brothers fighting monsters underground without getting dirty even as they are covered in filth. When asked how she manages it, she remarks:

* Peggy Carter of ''Series/AgentCarter'', much like her comic book-counterpart. Elegant and [[KickingAssInAllHerFinery stylish]], she maintains her impeccable grace as she [[ColdSniper calmly]] shoots at enemies and even when using [[CombatPragmatist brutal]] punches and kicks or [[ImprovisedWeapon improvised weapons]].

She first appeared in Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger where she was Steve's main love interest and was Lady of War there too; her popularity led to her getting her own series, thus becoming the first solo heroine in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse.

* In ''Fanfic/CoOpMode'', Taylor ends up choosing this as a theme for her cape name, as well as playing with MedievalEuropeanFantasy as Lady Bug. However, unlike most examples of this trope, Taylor doesn't wield the usual weapons, forgoing the usual [[RoyalRapier rapier]], [[NaginatasAreFeminine naginata]] or [[CombatHandFan steel fan]] for a steel [[BatterUp bat]]. This might change in time, but as of the current chapters Taylor has stated her newfound preference for metal bats.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' plays it straight with Jadzia Dax, an elegant and graceful fighter who knows Klingon martial arts and has a Bat'leth. Averted harshly with Kira Nerys, who grew up under the Cardassian Occupation and was a leader of [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized the Bajoran Resistance]] and as a result is a CombatPragmatist of the first water.

* Manga/{{Claymore}}, being a WorldOfActionGirls has many. Galatea is the dignified and elegant Number Two, Hysteria invented the most beautiful technique, Teresa is always eerily serene and the most powerful Claymore of all time, and Miria is the composed GuileHeroine who uses a speed-based fighting style. In fact, pretty much every female Claymore evolves to a Lady of War thanks to wielding swords and the professional requirement to keep a cool head at all times to avoid [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Awakening]].
