** Lucy Heartfili grew up as one but she left because her father focused on his business instead of her to the point of neglect. That being said, no one in the Fairy Tail guild gives her preferential treatment and she prefers it that way.

* Mayu Miyuki from ''Manga/AiYoriAoshi'' is a type 2, and something of a RichBitch when she's not around Kaoru. She still gets a bit of sympathy due to ParentalAbandonment.

* The sweet-looking, wavy-haired [[MoeAnthropomorphism Belgium]] in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' subverts this: the "Meeting of the World" strip and anime has her as TheOjou, some illustrations show her wearing very pretty dresses, and she already had quite a bit of money as a [[ChildProdigy pint-sized economic genius]] -- but characterization-wise, she's more of a tomboyish CoolBigSis.

* Takami "Komo" Komoda from ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'', the daughter of either a high-ranked military man (manga) or a congressman (anime), is a quiet and determined AloofDarkHairedGirl who embodies the ProperLady type.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' has two, one on each side of the conflict (though neither one is directly involved in the fighting). Milly Ashford, the president of the school's AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil, whose family runs the academy everyone goes to. Kaguya Sumeragi was the head of a powerful house in Japan who, despite her young age, is treated much like a princess and has a high social status.

* Ayumi Himekawa and Shiori Takamiya from ''Manga/GlassMask''. Ayumi is another ojou with lighter hair (downright blond in the old series), though Shiori is more of a traditional black-haired one.
** In Ayumi's specific case, it's actually [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] in the way this affects both her (lots of people think Ayumi is [[{{Nepotism}} using her parents' fame and wealth to further her career]], but she'll have nothing of it) and Maya (one of the reasons she thinks Ayumi is superior to her, which again doesn't amuse her).

** Quite interestingly, she had previously been introduced as a potential suitor to a certain Kimitake Hiraoka, a rising star in the Japanese literary scene as well as the royalist-nationalist Right. However, he was, alas, [[ManlyGay gay]], and a [[TheBeard Beard]] was not in the cards. So much the better for her; in TheSeventies, the poor fellow [[Creator/YukioMishima tried to stage a coup]] ''[[Creator/YukioMishima against her father-in-law]]'' [[Creator/YukioMishima and ended up committing seppuku]].

* Yurika Kirishima from ''[[VideoGame/RivalSchools Project Justice]]'' is an odd amalgamation of qualities from both types of Ojou. Like the Proper Lady, she is unassuming and naive (although her desire for a normal life [[spoiler:is to escape her current life as a hired assassin and her brother's reluctant henchwoman]]), but lacks the vocal fanbase that worships her every move. She has the physical features of the Royal Brat (OjouRinglets and TsurimeEyes eyes), but lacks any of the personality traits of that type. She is still portrayed as high-class and implied to be rich, at least compared to her best friends [[BikerBabe Akira]] and [[{{Delinquents}} Zaki]].

** In a throwaway phrase [[spoiler: after she gets a Pactio from Negi]], Kotaro mentions that Chizuru Naba is an {{Ojou}} as well. The Nabas seem to be [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heavy_industry into heavy industries]], so they're are likely to be a part of a ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keiretsu keiretsu]]'' (the sucessors of the [[ImperialJapan old-time]] ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zaibatsu zaibatsu]]''). What does this mean? That her family is on par with ''Ayaka's'' in riches and prestige. No wonder they're close friends and share the same dorm.
