* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' gives us [[ActionGirl Lel]][[BiTheWay iana]] who used to be a nun before she joined your party. While she qualifies for this trope based on how unlike the nuns of her setting she is, there are ''several'' subversions here. The big one is she disagree's with Chantry dogma and believes the creator is a loving god instead of an [[NeglectfulPrecursors indifferent one]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', the hypersexualized, sadistic titular protagonist enjoys doing the whole nun thing, and judging from the fact her job is doing graveyard burials and last rites disguised as a one, it's entirely possible that it's her cover story/a way to piss off enough angels to meet her quota.

*** However, this is heavily averted with Orsola Aquinas. She's so incredibly kind and devout that she even forgives and helps those who only a few weeks ago attempted to murder her.

* Nao in the MaiHime fanfic The Sword of the Lord. She swears quite often (in and out of her narration), likes to drink and occasionally has contact with men. Yukariko is still a nun despite being married, which Nao suspects is only allowed because she got an exemption in exchange for keeping quiet about Joseph's infiltration, forced a bishop to submit or used St. Vlas' [[MasterOfIllusion powers]] to convince people it was allowd. It's suggested that the order as a whole loosely follows the rules, being more focused on dealing with supernatural threats.

* In Creator/AAPessimal's take on the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'', the Chaplain to the Thieves' Guild School is a cheerful motherly nun, beloved by her pupils, kind, loving and suporting. Who was on the run for embezzling large amounts of money from her Order, which she maintains was "resting" in her bank account. Her motto for reverend contemplation is ''The Gods help those who help themselves''. This is believed to be based on a real case where a cheerful Irish nun, headmistress of a convent school, bankrupted the school by persistent and well-concealed theft estimated at a million pounds over ten years.

# Alternately, they may be a fusion of BadassPreacher and LadyOfWar [[note]]The [[AlphaBitch arrogant and manipulative]] variant[[/note]], forming a [[OneManArmy one-woman]] ChurchMilitant. This type can range from [[KnightInSourArmor knight in sour habit]] to a living incarnation of GoodIsNotNice. This variation often [[NoPlaceForMeThere openly acknowledges]] their own hypocrisy, but consider their own vices trivial compared the evil they oppose. Fairly common in UrbanFantasy and [[PunkPunk punk generas]].

She's a nun, at least that's what it says on her job resume. However, she acts nothing like what she's claiming to be. Instead, she can be violent, destructive, steal from the collection plate, wear revealing clothing, be perverted like the best of them, forget all about her chastity vows, take God's name in vain and swear so much she'd make a sailor cry, not to mention that she seems to have ideas or notions that directly contradict the Church she belongs to. In other words, she's anything but the normal image of a member of the Church you'd expect. It leads one to wonder how she managed to land this job in the first place. Like the BunnyEarsLawyer, It is possible that she's actually good at parts of her job... once you bypass all the rest of the stuff she does.
