* During the siege of Eger in 1552, the men did most of the hand-to-hand fighting, but it was the women who poured the cauldrons of boiling oil, tar, and any other nasty liquid they got their hands on.

* In about three of the ''{{Deception}}'' series of games (known as the Kagero series in Japan) features a female main character who is not an ActionGirl by any stretch of imagination, but instead was given a castle full of traps, and a complementary TrapMaster traits to go along with it. Chaining insane, bloody and gory combos with your ever-increasingly lethal and convoluted trap sequence is par for the course. The oddly-named {{Trapt}} (Kagero II: Dark Illusion in Japan) has a ''Princess'' doing this.

* MonsterHunter zig-zags with various related-species and subspecies. The female Rathian, for instance, is often introduced to players sooner than the male Rathalos, and Rathian does not fly around nearly as much or use her fire breath as vigorously. The rather unnerving Diablos species, however, as the even scarier Black Diablos subspecies, which consists entirely of female Diablos who are in heat.

* Olga from ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'' is much more vindictive and cruel than most of the other Deities, being merely subservient to deus out of true admiration then true subservience most of the time. Subverted when around Asura, especially when [[spoiler: he turns into his berserker form, which makes her high tail it and try to use their ultimate weapon on him. She also Outlives deus and tries to kill mithra when Deus dies.]]

* ''Anime/KillLaKill'' There are six really important female characters in the series. Two of them are so powerful that all of the most powerful men in the series work for them, Ryuko's goal is to take the other two women down. Gamagoori completely bends his will Satsuki & Mako out of respect.
* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'': There's almost no man in this series who hasn't had his ass repeatedly kicked by a woman for anything from a minor infraction to actual combat. Kondou loses to Otae, Tatsuma loses to Mutsu, everyone but Okita & Kamui have lost to Kagura, Gintoki has lost to every woman except Sarutobi & Ana, & few men can match Nobume with a sword.

* In ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'', females of the Locust Horde are referred to as "Berserkers." They're blind but have heightened senses of smell and sound to track their prey... and they are ''much'' more powerful and deadly than the more typical Locust drones. COG soldiers absolutely dread them.

* Lord Hater is the Big Bad of "Wander Over Yonder" until the Dominator shows up. She gets her jollies by destroying every planet in the galaxy. After she's destroyed everything except for a tiny little planet where the heroes are plotting to defeat her, she starts to feel very sad and depressed...because there's nothing left to destroy. She's so evil that during the series finale Lord Hater teams up with Wander and his friends to defeat her because she's destroyed the galaxy he wanted to conquer. After she's finally defeated she almost seems to want to be Wander's friend and become a good guy for a few moments but then she decides she'd rather storm off in a huff instead.
* In "The Amazing World of Gumball", one episode revolves around Gumball's neighbor's wife being a total sociopath who enjoys making everyone around her miserable. When Gumball and his brother Darwin try to find out why, their neighbor Mr. Robinson speaks a few lines of dialogue from Batman where he says that "some people aren't after anything logical. Sometimes they just want to watch the world burn."

* The small, frail female Skrall in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' are said to be far more dangerous than their larger, brutish male counterparts, in part due to their Psionic powers which can potentially destroy one's mind.

* In the {{Emberverse}}, the single deadliest warrior in the Portland Protective Association is Tiphaine d'Ath. She is strong, lethally quick, clever, and an absolute CombatPragmatist. According to her, the fact that she doesn't waste time posturing and flourishing, as a male noble would, is a tremendous advantage.
