* A mild example, in ''Literature/TheLongEarth'', Joshua has noted that the nuns who run the orphanage aren't much like nuns on TV. The main one we see is Sister Agnes, a BadassBiker who plays JimSteinman too loudly for the other nuns' liking. There's also Sister Serendipity, who has joined holy orders until the FBI stop looking for her. (Sister Agnes says it was all a misunderstanding, and it's not like she ''succeeded'' in shooting the senator.)

** Yukariko herself is also one, as despite her innocence and lack of knowledge about men, she gets visibly drunk during the Karaoke party, and also gets into a relationship with Ishigami, [[spoiler:becoming pregnant in the process (although this may have been due to rape)]]. At least in her case she has apparently stopped being a nun at the end of the series, though she still works at the church.

* In ''Literature/RangersAtRoadsend'' Chip, who spent some time at the temple because her parents wanted her to become a Sister, reveals that the Sisters are not particularly humble or forgiving, or even chaste. While the religion is not Christianity, the Sisterhood seems to have similiar requirements. Considering that many of the other Sisters are probably also there because their parents wanted it so, the reasons for the lack of holyness are probably the same as in the Middle Ages.

* Esther Blanchett from ''TrinityBlood'': not only is it suggested she is in love with both Father Nightroad and Count Ion, at a couple points in the story she's also on the run for murder charges.

* The trope description fits Rosette Christopher from ''ChronoCrusade'' to a T. She constantly swears, physically takes her frustration out on her assistant Chrono (who's a demon, by the way) when things go wrong, enjoys gambling, revels in wearing expensive clothing, in one scene gets rip-roaring drunk and then ''forces a twelve-year-old to drink - during Prohibition'', DrivesLikeCrazy, and... happens to be one of the best exorcists in the Magdalene Order, when she manages not to destroy anything. The Order puts up with her behavior because not only is she very good and very dedicated to what she does, she has an extremely good reason for being there--saving her younger brother from a powerful demon.

* Played straight with Kazumi Ryudo from HauntedJunction, who is something of a LoveableSexManiac. He's also a Buddhist monk trained by his grandfather, and said grandpa is a DirtyOldMan.

* Sister Sein in ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. Getting trained as a nun for a few years under the strict supervision of Sister Schach had done nothing to reduce her mischievous personality. For example, her first appearance on ''[=ViVid=]'' involved surprise SkinshipGrope and secretly touching everyone's no-no places while they were relaxing in the hot springs.

** It is, however, indicated that, immature tendencies aside, she's a caring individual who's good at her job. In Sound Stage X, she notices when an elderly pilgrim is about to collapse and carries her the rest of the way, and she is often seen caring for the comatose [[spoiler:Ixpellia]].

* Sister Maria from ''TheSoundOfMusic'': 'She's always late for everything except for every meal'. Another mild example, she has strong moral character, is hard working, compassionate, and a talented music teacher, but it's obvious to the other nuns that becoming a nun was a poor career choice for Maria.
