* During a promotional-photoshoot storyline in ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'', Anvil confides in Sydney that she's unhappy with her body, and the prospect of having it photographed, due to past bullying experiences involving this trope. WordOfGod is that Anvil prefers to wear long hair, makeup, and feminine attire because she fears being seen as masculine and undesirable.

* ''VideoGame/DragonAge2'': Poor Aveline gets teased endlessly by the other companions for being so tall, bulky, and muscular, and most male characters consider her too "mannish" to find attractive. (The only exceptions are her deceased husband Westley, her LoveInterest Donnic, and [[ObliviousToLove potentially]] [[DidNotGetTheGirl Hawke]].)

* Discussed in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''' Female City Elf Origin, where your father advises you not to tell your fiance about your martial training. It's a little bit hypocritical since he married a woman, Adraia, who was a Grey Warden prospect. It's ultimately averted since he advises a Male City Elf to hide his martial prowess from his bride-to-be as well. In both cases, your father wants you to avoid looking like a ''trouble-maker'', not unfeminine.
** Played much more straight in the Female Human Noble Origin, where your mother tries to discourage you from fighting since she thinks it'll scare off potential suitors. She also proudly proclaims that she gave up being an adept "battle maiden" because "t'was the gentler arts that landed me a husband." Your father seems oddly okay with this.

* A female Trooper in ''Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' can tell a potential love interest "There aren't exactly a lot of men lining up to woo female commandos, either.", which is rather true in-game considering her lack of flirt options.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Buffy's boyfriend, Riley, has a related malady. Riley wants Buffy all the more for being superheroic, but he seeks to [[PsychoSerum enhance]] his [[FreudWasRight performance]] to not feel inadequate next to the Slayer. There were also numerous references to the trope by guys who were intimidated by her strength in high school and Spike quips about it when she is dumped after a one night stand. It should be noted that Riley's insecurity stems at least in part from his (perhaps justified) belief that Buffy doesn't love him as much as she could.

* This often happens in the WWE developmental territories. An athletic woman gets noticed and is ordered to lose her muscle tone to suit the traditional Diva mold. This happened to Angel Williams (Wrestling/{{TNA}}'s Wrestling/AngelinaLove) and Jennifer Thomas (who left pro wrestling after being released) in the mid-2000s. The most recent example is NXT diva Dana Brooke, whose sculpted biceps and love of flexing them were a big part of her gimmick when she first arrived. The biceps have disappeared, although clips of her flexing (when she still had them) are still plentiful in NXT promotional footage.

* Speaking of Chyna, when she first started out in WWF, she was a mannish-looking bodybuilder with bigger muscles than most of the men. Over time, she had several cosmetic surgeries and lost most of her mass, allowing her to grace the cover of ''Playboy''.
