%%In what way? * Tio of ''GashBell'' exudes this aura, especially in flashbacks, but she's always seen wearing a dress.

* ''[[Anime/TheIdolmaster THE iDOLM@STER]]'': Makoto is generally perceived that way, so she became an Idol in hopes of [[GirlinessUpgrade shedding that image.]]

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.
** Lois, while normally being a regular housewife, became One of The Guys in an episode where she had to stand in for Peter on bowling night due to him being sick, and ended up befriending Joe and Quagmire and joining them on guy escapades.

Added DiffLines:

* Sun Jing from ''WebComic/TheirStory'' often plays basketball with her male friends, and seems to spend most of her free time with them in general. She also has a preference for masculine clothing, and wears a tie with her school uniform rather than the standard girl's bow.

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).

Compare (and often overlaps with) GirlNextDoor, bonus points if they've have been RaisedByDudes. Also loosely related to {{bifauxnen}}, which is a girl who can pass for a pretty boy, but are usually more refined. Not to be confused with YouGoGirl, where a girl participates in masculine activities just to prove she can do it. Contrast with GirlyGirl and ProperLady.

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.

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': As far as Ranma's concerned, Ukyō really ''is'' one of the guys. At least, he thought she was, back when they were kids. So he was shocked when he finally (as in years later) realized that she was really a girl the whole time. But he doesn't treat her any differently than he used to and still thinks of her the same way, out of habit. Which is helped by the fact that she continues to refer to herself using the [[{{Bokukko}} "boku wa" pronoun]].

Ranma does refer to her as his "cute" fiancee, but that's mostly a dig at Akane (his "uncute" fiancee).

* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', Carol is a classic version of this, being her school's top football ([[TheBeautifulGame the version that the rest of the world recognises as football]]) player, a top athlete, with a spiky, abrasive personality. The latter largely comes from the fact that, unlike most examples, she's not indistinguishable from the guys. Instead, she's an AmazonianBeauty and YoungerThanSheLooks, leading to a lot of unwanted attention.
