* Not a specific character, but the concept is used for jokes occasionally on ''FamilyGuy'', such as Peter mentioning a "woman trying way too hard to be one of the guys" in a strip club. There was also a cutaway about JoanOfArc being burned at the stake due to her fellow soldiers getting tired of her constantly bringing this trope up.

* Melissa in ''HomeMovies'' hangs out exclusively with her friends Brendon and Jason, and her father gets worried that she acts more tough and manly than either of them (which, to be fair, is not much).

* Beka Valentine, Captain and owner of the salvage ship ''Eureka Maru'' from GeneRoddenberry's ''{{Series/Andromeda}}''. The first time we see her in a dress, she's complaining about how she can't run and fight in all that cloth... and she's still wearing her combat boots.

* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'': As a trained soldier/mercenary, since her teen years, Casca has spent much of her life fighting alongside men. While her enemies occasionally talk shit about [[StayInTheKitchen her being a female soldier]], the entirety of the Band of the Hawk has nothing but respect for her.

While she doesn't exactly hate feminine things, she's gotten used to wearing male clothing for convenience, and feels more like she knows what she's doing when in a masculine environment. And although her enemies occasionally talk shit about [[StayInTheKitchen her being a female soldier]], the entirety of the entire Band of the Hawk has nothing but respect for her.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

-->'''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.
