* Nova from ''SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo''. She's [[TheSmurfettePrinciple the only female monkey on the team]], but her male teammates respect her and treat her as one of them.

* Robin on ''HowIMetYourMother''. She isnt completely unfeminine, but shares a lot of interests with the male cast, not to mention she also msokes and likes guns and sports. This is due to her father raising her like a boy because he wanted a son.

They may be introduced in a way that shows she's [[TrueCompanions "in"]] [[EstablishingCharacterMoment with the guys.]] This can entail anything from simply hanging out with them, to engaging in some sort of contest (i.e. [[GamerChick gaming]], [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl drinking]], etc.), or she might be [[WrenchWench their mechanic]]. The point being, she doesn't need or expect any special treatment.

* Subverted with ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Hermione is seen as One of the Boys, much to her chagrin when a dance comes around and neither Harry nor Ron ask her, even when they are talking about getting their own dates. A desperate Ron does eventually think to ask her and even uses the phrase "hey, you're a girl," only to be told (to his extreme disbelief) that she is already going with someone else.

** And then played straight in the sequel ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheFracturedButWhole'', where it turns out that if you choose to be a girl in the character creation, the New Kid was a girl all along in the first game. Nobody, not even your parents, realized your gender until now. And given the New Kid's [[{{TheLadette}} skill]] [[{{Fartillery}} set]], she probably would fit in more with the boys than with the girls anyway.

* ''Anime/LibraryWar'' establishes Kasahara as the first woman to ever earn a spot on the Library Defense Force's elite division, due to her physical capabilities. She's shown to excel at Judo, as well as track and field events. During a hazing ritual, she was startled awake by an instructor disguised in a bear costume. She responded by dropping him with a single punch, which earned er the nickname "bear killer II"[[note]]since Dojou had done the exact same thing, years prior; making him the original "bear killer"[[/note]].

In a strange twist, {{Chickification}} is often seen as an ''improvement'' for them. The guys she hangs with often find the development of feminine traits in their 'bestie' a plus, as they'll now have [[GirlNextDoor an approachable girl]] they share a lot in common with. But it can just as easily backfire on her when her friends start to take an interest in girls, only to completely overlook her. Instead, they'll come to her for advice on how to approach ''other girls''; leaving her as the 'odd man out'. Or, if one of 'em doesn't have a date, they might ask her to act as an emergency stand-in, for appearances' sake -- just to help out a pal of course, [[ShipTease it doesn't mean anything]].

An ActionGirl is sometimes portrayed as being "one of the guys", possibly as a subtle form of {{fanservice}} (or not so subtle, depending on the character). TheLadette can be thought of as this trope plus SheIsAllGrownUp, but when she isn't [[CanCrushingCranium crushing beer cans with her forehead]], she's often reminding her guy friends that she's a girl in the most [[TheTease hamfisted]] [[LovableSexManiac ways]] [[TankTopTomboy possible]]- which may be a self-conscious attempt to [[DefiedTrope defy]] the downsides of this trope.

* 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.
