Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'':
** Sweetie Bird and Furrball the Cat, respectively. The two alternate between being homeless creatures and the unfortunate pets of [[AndCallHimGeorge Elmyra Duff]], but Furrball's too timid and meek to stand up for himself against bigger animals, while Sweetie is tougher and more aggressive, even going as far to intimidate Furrball, who's bigger than her.
** Fran and Edward, the two respective network executives who appear in the episodes, "[[Recap/TinyToonAdventuresS3E1Thirteensomething Thirteensomething]]" and "[[ItsAWonderfulPlot It's a Wonderful Tiny Toons Christmas Special]]". Edward is regularly impressed with little things Fran disagrees on, with Fran regularly telling him, "You are so lost.", and the few times he isn't impressed, his opinion is pushed aside by Fran's. That being said, he isn't afraid to stand up to Fran when she disagrees on his opinion of the plot twist Buster adds to ''[[ShowWithinAShow Thirteensomething]]'' by posing as Cleveland, Alabaster's twin brother.

* ''Series/WarehouseThirteen'': Myka is a no-nonsense ActionGirl and Pete, while he's ex-military, is generally more open about his emotions, and has a [[SpiderSense minor superpower]] he calls "vibes" which if he were female would look a lot like "feminine intuition".

** Steven is the Pink Boy to all of the [[MagicalGirlWarrior Crystal Gems]] and the entire [[OneGenderRace Gem species]]! Even more the traditionally feminine ones like [[TheSmartGuy Pearl]] are aggressive fighters, while Steven's greatest weapon is definitely ThePowerOfFriendship.

ThePowerOfFriendship (though another reason could be Steven did not grow up in war or war-like culture like the Gems kinda did.)
** A large part is from both of his parents: His mother Rose Quartz had special powers linked to growth, protection and healing (he inherited the shield from her as well as healing, though spit instead of tears), but she was a LadyOfWar and she doesn't respond to threats to the people she cares about. His father Greg Unvierse is a chill and laid-back guy who is a [[GoodParents good dad] to his son. Both could be a subtle version of this trope

* DependingOnTheWriter, [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker]]. When TimothyZahn writes them, Luke is the sweeter, gentler one who prefers to avoid violence when possible, is always giving second and third chances, and is very open emotionally. Mara is more hostile to the world, blunt and direct and not about to let herself be jerked around, much more fiercely independent, and untrusting.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Brienne and Renly are specifically the ActionGirl and NonActionGuy pairing. Brienne adores Renly because his sweet and caring nature is so different from the malicious, violent men that she has encountered in her life. Renly is fond of Brienne (to the point where Loras is even a bit jealous of her) because he admires a woman who, despite the numerous obstacles she has faced in her pursuit of a masculine occupation, is able to beat the formidable Knight of Flowers in the melee.

* ''Fanfic/NeonMetathesisEvangelion'': The only thing feminine about Rei is her girls' school uniform. And Asuka is loud, brash, enjoys fighting, enjoys rebelling against authority and antagonizing people... Meanwhile, Shinji would like nothing more to step away from fighting, is rather meek and shy, cooks well, can mediate between Asuka and Rei... Misato even calls that out.
-->"You know, that really isn't what I expected when I took you in. I know you said you'd pilot if you could right now, and I believe you, but let's be honest... you never liked it. This, though... you were positively glowing at the meal. So... a boy who would rather cook than pilot. Yeah, I really wasn't expecting that. But screw that. You want to cook? You're right, it's something you can do. Honestly, without your influence I think the two girls would have clawed each other's eyes out by now. So don't think it's nothing. So, if you'd rather do that than piloting, you'd still be contributing."

* Femysade and Aqib in the novella ''Literature/ATasteOfHoney''. Femysade is taller and stronger than Aqib, has a no-nonsense attitude and spends her time studying mathematics and physics, while Aqib is -- and remains for all his life -- a slight, rather weak boy who prefers to avoid conflict and work with animals. Femysade expressly chooses him as her husband because WeaknessTurnsHerOn but later leaves Aqib and their daughter behind to persue her scientific interests, while Aqib stays behind and takes care of Lucretia. Also, during prayer dances, everyone prefers his performance ''because'' it's more feminine -- and submissive -- than those of more skilled dancers.

** Believe it or not, ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'' pulls this off brilliantly with ''{{Franchise/Barbie}} and Ken.'' Ken is the poster boy for CampStraight. Barbie is capable of kicking his ass and is [[HiddenDepths savvy in political science]].
--> '''Barbie:''' Authority should derive from the consent of the governed, not from the threat of force!
