\n* In ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'', Shinji and Asuka are married. She’s bold and straightforward, and he's quiet and non-confrontational. During the AfterTheEnd section of the story, Asuka took care of physical tasks (such like farming) as Shinji was tasked with the household chores and learning whatever knowledge that they needed (such like medical care). Asuka usually drove the two of them, made plans and handled everything while he calmed her down when she was angry or reassured her when she was depressed. She also loves fighting while he loathes it.

* In ''TheLandBeforeTime'', Littlefoot is soft spoken and polite. Cera is snarky and brash.

* WesternAnimation/KimPossible and her {{sidekick}} Ron; she's a relentless overachiever who knows "sixteen forms of kung fu," set herself up as an international TeenSuperspy, and kicks {{supervillain}} butt. He rarely fails to back her up and has his badass moments but is an easygoing type widely thought of as a loser, content to chill. Slightly mixed up in that she still fulfils gender roles such as cheerleading, while he eventually becomes a football player, but then again we see their old Halloween costumes - Kim as a cowboy, Ron as a ballerina. Nuff said.

** Ranma Saotome and Akane Tendo can be seen as a zigzagging example of this. Akane is a [[{{Tsundere}} notoriously short tempered and violence-prone]] {{tomboy}}, infamous for her total [[LethalChef lack of cooking skill]], horrible at anything arts and craftsy (such as making cookie shapes, sewing, painting, etc), and not terribly good at housework. Ranma, in contrast, is capable of acting much more feminine, is very good at cooking and sewing, [[NeatFreak hates mess]] to the point he once forgot about [[ItMakesSenseInContext burglaring a flat to clean up the mess inside instead]], can actually [[GenderBender turn into a girl more or less at will]], and, according to one post-series book, actually has developed a secret enjoyment of crossdressing by the time the series ends, thanks to all the times he dressed up as a girl for whatever ZanyScheme he was pulling. On the other hand, [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak Akane]] ''desperately'' wants to be more feminine and tries her hardest to achieve that, and had both stereotypically "girly" fears (such as loathing ghost stories) ''and'' a rather idealised view of femininity (due to her beloved mother's early death ''and'' [[PromotiontoParent having been raised]] by her YamatoNadeshiko older sister Kasumi), while Ranma is a macho jock-type who'll even go around near-naked in female form because he's that masculine.

* ''Manga/DeathNote'':
** Misa and Light. While Misa looks very feminine (IdolSinger, GenkiGirl, enjoys cooking, [[TheFashionista loves wearing pretty and girly clothes]] and ''really'' wants to be Light/Kira’s wife) her personality actually fits this trope: she deliberately seeks out dangerous situations and is definitely more of a risk-taker, while [[NonActionGuy Light is more cautious]] and of the two of them she is definitely more [[StalkingIsFunnyIfItsFemaleAfterMale sexually aggressive]]. Misa [[DeclarationOfProtection will go to any lengths to protect Light]], even withstanding ColdBloodedTorture, and [[LoveMartyr she would gladly die for him]].
** [[ActionGirl Halle]] (secret service agent and karate champion) and Mello (BadAss effeminate mafia lord).



* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', we have TheStoic ActionGirl {{tsundere}} Android 18 and the soft, CowardlyLion NiceGuy Krillin.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia''. Milla Maxwell and Jude Mathis.is the Feminine Boy to Leia's Masculine Girl. They're a mild example of the trope, but the game brings it up once when Jude comments on Leia's untidy handwriting. She retorts by insulting his neat handwriting, likening it to that of a little girl. A flustered Jude then defends himself ("There's nothing wrong with a guy having neat handwriting!") and accuses Leia of being sexist.

* Dennis and Dee Reynolds on ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' are another brother-sister example: Dennis is a CampStraight NonActionGuy, the more polite and cultured of the two, and the one more likely to burst into tears (BerserkerTears, but still). Dee is TheLadette, more uncouth, uncltured and overtly aggressive than her brother, not to mention more physically capable than him.

* Asuka and Shinji from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Shinji is obviously a HouseHusband in training, cooking and doing most of the chores around the house he occupies with Asuka and Misato, and has a shy, timid, and kind personality most of the time ([[BewareTheNiceOnes unless he's seriously provoked]] [[DespairEventHorizon or completely snaps]]). By contrast, Asuka is a FieryRedhead ActionGirl who revels in combat and remains the better pilot for most of the series.
