* Ciel from ''VisualNovle/{{Tsukihime}}''. However, the organization she belongs to (the Burial Agency) is arguably the most heretical part of the Church, where faith is secondary to actual power. She does dress up as a nun on occasion, but she says that it's all for show and doesn't actually mean anything.

* A variant, unrelated to use of special powers: In ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'', there is a small Roman Catholic church seemingly staffed only by a ''single'' priest named Father Joseph Greer (probably intended to be American) and a ''single'' Japanese nun, Sister Yukariko Sanada, with no other "functionaries" of any kind. This setup is a lot more plausible in a Shinto temple than in a church. In the end, [[spoiler: Sister Yukariko is seen no longer in a habit, ''very'' pregnant]], but somehow [[spoiler: still in charge of the two new nuns, Miyu and Nao, who are part timers while they still go to school (Also, one of them is a ''RobotGirl''. You have to wonder about the theological implications...)]].

* Most of the cast of ''LaPucelleTactics''. It is justified in that one of the cast is the ''founder'' of the church, and as such could make whatever rules for the order he wanted. It should also be noted that this is not standard in the game world: La Pucelle is a special order of demon hunters belonging to a specific church; it is the only church with such an order and not all of it's members are initiated into La Pucelle.

* ''TrinityBlood'' features a number of women who are apparently meant as nuns of a sort, including the very well-endowed, overtly seductive Noélle Bor and the demure -- yet-gun-toting -- Esther Blanchett. Oh, and on a related note, the series also features Catherina Sforza, a female cardinal.
* In ''Manga/WitchHunterRobin'', there's a male example -- Robin's mentor, a Catholic priest, has a daughter. While this is possible [[note]] Widowers are allowed to become priests, as are married Protestant ministers who convert to Catholicism. Additionally the Eastern Catholics, who make up 2% of all Catholics, allow married men to become priests. However Eastern Catholic churches have very distinct iconography that would be obvious.[[/note]] it is very rare.
* In ''SchoolRumble'', Yakumo's British friend Sarah Adiemus appears to be a nun on an after-school, part-time, volunteer basis. Part of her duties include hearing confessions, which is actually only done by a priest or bishop. And we later find out that other teens periodically come into the confessional to ask for relationship advice.

** This is averted in Harvest Moon: Twin Villages (known as Tale of Two Towns to the Western audience), where you ''can'' actually marry the game's nun-like character, but only after gaining permission from the Goddess she serves.

* Seira from ''KaitouSaintTail'' is a part-time "nun-in-training" after school, and wears a white nun's habit -- all analagous to a {{miko}}'s role, but antithetical to nundom. Tachikawa Megumi admits in volume notes that she didn't do her research after being corrected in a fan letter from an actual nun.
