* Historically, a soldier's worst nightmare is to be alone in enemy territory, seriously wounded, and surrounded by female civilians -- who, due to the prevalence of RapePillageAndBurn as a standard procedure throughout military history, are often eager to dish out a CruelAndUnusualDeath to any soldier they can get their hands on.



* There's a species of firefly where the males have wings and the female don't, but the females use their lights to lure the males down from the air so they can eat them.

* Pick a martial art. Any martial art. Go into a dojo for that martial art and watch their sparring class. Now observe. The women are often more aggressive than the men.

* Opal Koboi, the main recurring villain in the ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'' series--other than [[VillainProtagonist the protagonist]]--follows this trope. Like Artemis, she's a greedy and manipulative [[XanatosGambit scheme-happy]] evil genius; ''unlike'' Artemis, who [[EvenEvilHasStandards has some moral principles]], she's a [[AxCrazy homicidal maniac]]. Artemis eventually develops into more of an AntiHero; simultaneously, Opal goes even further off the deep end, eventually attempting to KillAllHumans and become an evil overlord of the fairies.

* ''Series/ThePrisoner'' is notable for the three episodes in which Number Two is female being the ones in which Number Six ends up most defeated and the closest to being mentally broken.

* ''Film/TheForceAwakens'': Rey is better at hand to hand combat than either of her forebears. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that she's spent the last 10-15 years living essentially alone in a harsh environment where being the best person in the neighborhood at hand to hand is her primary self-defense measure. And in that she's '''very''' strong in the Force.

On the other hand, she's apparently not quite in Kylo Ren's league when it comes to lightsaber combat, as she spends most of their battle [[spoiler:on the back foot against Ren despite his already being injured and trying to take her alive, and she only manages to disable him by catching him off-guard with a flurry of attacks]].


Added DiffLines:

* The final battle in ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' has Sully repeatedly try to kill Col. Quaritch, but he keeps narrowly failing and only managing to inflict superficial injuries. When Neytiri catches up with them both at the end of the battle, [[spoiler:she manages to kill Quaritch almost immediately]]. Justifiable in that Sully's fighting using a body and weapons he's not too familiar with, whereas Neytiri is an expert archer.

* Many female leaders in history, such as [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Bloody Mary]] I of England, Hungarian [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Blood Countess Elizabeth Bathory]] and the Iron Lady herself, Margaret Thatcher.
* It is often noted with armies in history that when they are occupying a foreign hostile territory, the ultimate nightmare is for a soldier to be seriously wounded, alone and surrounded by female civilians. In short, they will get their knives or similar blades and kill that soldier ''[[ColdBloodedTorture slowly]]''. Justifiable, however, because historically RapePillageAndBurn has been ''standard operating procedure'' for all armies. Why this would make women particularly eager to kill any soldier they can get alone hardly needs elaborating.

* ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' No one is more deadly than Lina Inverse, except maybe her older sister.
* ''Anime/KillLaKill'' There are six notable female characters. Two of them are so powerful that all of the most powerful men in the world work for them, Ryuko's goal is to take the other two women down. Gamagoori completely bends his will for Satsuki and Mako out of sincere 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 and Ana, and few men can match Nobume with a sword.
* In ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', Ikari Gendo is a MagnificentBastard who commands a force of HumongousMecha. His son Shinji pilots one of these mecha. Gendo's wife and Shinji's mom, Yui? [[spoiler: She is the soul of said mecha that Shinji pilots, prone to UnstoppableRage [[MamaBear in order to protect her son]] [[BewareTheNiceOnes and RIPPING HER OPPONENTS LIMB FROM LIMB BEFORE DEVOURING THEIR ORGANS!]] It's also likely that she is the actual mastermind behind the whole Instrumentality project and the Evas.]] Gendo really only takes over command because she is no longer able to. By the way, Ikari is ''her'' birth surname, not Gendo's.
* In a flashback in the first episode of ''Literature/{{Moshidora}}'', Minami, at bat in the bottom of the ninth with the scores tied in a junior baseball game, makes a wild swing at the first pitch that convinces everyone she is a hopeless batter. It turns out that her wild swing was done ''intentionally'' to lull the pitcher into a false sense of security, and on his next pitch she is able to get a hit and score the winning run.

Though [[MagnificentBastard Light]] manages to take advantage of her grief and lack of resources to get her out of the game before that happens, her [[spoiler: death]] leads L to him and sets in motion the events leading to [[spoiler: his ultimate destruction]].

His twin sister Yukina (the only Ice Maiden he planned to spare) is searching for him to ''remind him he promised to commit the genocide''.
* Hildegard von Mariendorf in ''Anime/LegendOfGalacticHeroes'' is ''the'' deadliest woman in existence, as Reinhard says that her methods can just be as underhanded as [[NecessaryEvil Oberstein's]], and the fact that she [[spoiler: personally ends the war]].
* In ''Manga/SailorMoon'' the female characters tend to be more bloodthirsty than the male ones. The best example comes from confronting any version of Prince Demando (TheDragon of the second group of villains, who believes himself the BigBad) with [[spoiler: Sailor Venus]] (a hero): when put having to kill the person they loved, Demando refused (in the manga he ultimately tried it, but that's only in his VillainousBreakdown, and it was merely a collateral effect of [[OmnicidalManiac what he was actually trying to do]], [[spoiler: Sailor Venus]] ''did it in a heartbat, '''twice''''' (while the first time she may have been panicking, given it was her first mission, the second time she had just [[DontMakeMeDestroyYou begged him to stand down while holding him at deadly spellpoint]]).
* Adiane from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' is TheSmurfettePrinciple of the Four Beastmen Generals, and is much more psychotic and violent than her male colleagues. Using her mecha, she beats down most of Team Dai-Gurren's entire brigade ''by herself''.

* In ''Film/{{Species}}'', the decision was made to make the alien hybrid female "so she'd be more docile and controllable". A female scientist observes that "You don't get out much, do you?" The sequel subverts this, however; it turns out that a male hybrid is much more dangerous (and can turn tame female hybrids to its side pretty much just by existing). Especially since the big threat of the hybrids is that they will procreate and overthrow humanity, and that's an area in which males have greater advantages to females. When they metamorphose into their alien forms, the male one is also three times the female's size.

Justified on a biological level, too--female snakes in real life do indeed tend to be bigger, stronger and more aggressive than their male counterparts.
* Emma in ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven2016'' is the most deadly out of everyone in Rose Creek, being the best shooter, and this is even before the villagers were trained by the Seven.
