* Tomo, the title character of ''Manga/TomoChanWaOnnanoko'', is an athlete on par, if not superior to, any male of her age. Her best friend since childhood, Junichiro, legitimately thought she was a boy when they were children and seems unable to consciously acknowledge she is a girl. This is problematic for Tomo because she's in love with Jun and ''wants'' him to notice she's a girl.

* ''Manga/MakenKi'': Azuki is well-known for being [[AmazonianBeauty one of the strongest girls]] at the academy, so it came as a surprise to everyone that she [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak secretly likes]] [[http://readpanda.net/Maken-ki/1/27/ stuffed animals.]] Takeru and his friend, Usui, lampshaded it further in chapter 10, when they found her sewing:
-->'''Usui: ([[DeadpanSnarker deadpan]])''' "Azuki sempai... are ''you'' sewing...?"
-->'''Takeru: (snidely)''' "Once again, [[http://readpanda.net/Maken-ki/10/5/ trying to be a girl."]]
-->'''Azuki: (offended)''' "You have a problem!? What do you mean, being "like" a girl!!"

That said, chances are good that they'll be subjected to a SheCleansUpNicely plot, at some point, to bring forth their [[BeautifulAllAlong "true beauty"]]. But unlike other girls, they'll consider themselves a victim, as being forced to [[RealWomenNeverWearDresses get "dolled up" is humiliating.]] And in some cases, it [[UnkemptBeauty isn't even necessary]]. Not only does it run the risk of changing the group dynamic, [[IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn it may cause one of the guys to develop a romantic interest in her]] -- which can make things… ''[[IDontWantToRuinOurFriendship awkward]]'', for her.

* In ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'', the webseries and comic make Golootha more of a TomboyWithAGirlyStreak. [[EffeminateMisogynisticGuy Omega]] [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero Zell]] seems to categorise people as "male" (to whom he talks normally as long as he doesn't consider them of lower intelligence), "female" (that he quite vocally considers to be systematically inferior to him) and "Golgotha" (treated almost as well as male despite technically being female). Best cases are shown in the comic:

** Season 2 brought Carol "MsMarvel" Danvers onto the team who, as an accomplished military woman, fighter pilot, and a new [[TheBigGuy big gun on the team]] to use while they dealt with the missing Thor and Hulk during the first half of the season, more than played this role straight.

* Bulma from ''DragonBall'' is this. Aside from being TheChick, she has tomboyish traits and often shares common interests with her friends in the Dragon Ball Gang (and later, the Z Fighters). Her love for mechanics and gadgetry is a plus factor.

* Natsuru, the eldest daughter in ''Manga/FamilyComplex'' is always playing soccer together with the boys, and her friends often forget that she's a girl. The fact that she's a {{Bifauxnen}} doesn't help.

* Creator/DavidBowie plays with this trope in his song "Rebel Rebel", which is about an extravagant drag queen who the narrator sees as OneOfTheBoys.
* KatyPerry's "One of the Boys", played straight with {{Chickification}} being a good thing. Balanced out when she snubs the guy she originally chickified for - who is totally oblivious to her crush since he thought of their relationship as LikeBrotherAndSister.
