* A rare [[GenderInvertedTrope Gender Inversion]] in ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheStickOfTruth''. Upon completing all of the girls' quests, the male main character, "The New Kid", is granted the title of "Honorary Girl" by them, and is given free access to the their club house as well as an invitation to their next slumber party. Possibly played straight in the sequel ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheFracturedButWhole'', if the player chooses to make their character a girl. If they do, the explanation given for the change is that the New Kid was a girl all along in the first game. Nobody realized her gender until now while her parents lied about her identity to protect her from the government. And given the New Kid's [[{{TheLadette}} skill]] [[{{Fartillery}} set]], she probably would fit in more with the boys than with the girls anyway.

* The version of Buttercup from ''Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ'' (known as Kaoru Matsubara in the original and Buttercup in the dub) is even more of a tomboy than the original Western animation version. She is rarely seen wearing clothes that aren't knee length shorts, a baseball cap, and a sports shirt. The only time she isn't wearing something like that was in a rabid imagination of Princess Morbucks or during her initial turn to her Powerpuff form where she wears a skirt, although the required skirt sent her into a mad rage which was only quelled by her breaking nearly everything. Additionally, the series makes it clear she loves sports, especially soccer, is rougher and rowdier than the other two girls (refusing to partake in a few ventures due to the excessive femininity), and nearly driving Ken to total exhaustion when she pretends to be his mother, which seems to entail waking him up early and forcing him to jog for a mile (much more akin to a father or a coach than a mother).

* Miki from ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai'' only hung out with boys in elementary and has only brothers. She was a boyish girl who didn't "get" other girls until puberty hit,and suddenly her male friends were uncomfortable with her chest growth.

* PassionateSportsGirl Tomomi from ''Manga/MiracleGirls'' often hangs around boys and is tomboyish, especially compared to her twin sister.



* DependingOnTheWriter, Betty from ''Franchise/ArchieComics''. This trait is most obvious in the [[ComicBook/ArchieComics2015 2015 reboot]]. Her [[WrenchWench mechanic]] skills are emphasized and she's quite {{tomboy}}ish, in stark contrast to the GirlyGirl Veronica. Betty's friend Sheila even complains that Betty can't be "one of the guys" anymore and should dress feminine for her birthday party.

* This is a minor plot point in the final chapter of ''[[FanFic/MGLNCrisis Red Jewel Diaries]]'' when Vice accidentally has a curse placed on him by [=NanoFate=] shippers that causes him to uncontrollably grope every woman he sees. [[IHaveBrothers Alto]] is the only one that doesn't set him off because he never really viewed her as a girl to begin with.

* ''Anime/VariableGeo'': [[SpiritedCompetitor Yuka Takeuchi]] and her best friend, [[UnkemptBeauty Satomi Yajima]], are the {{tomboy}} equivalents of [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Ryu]] and [[Characters/TheKingOfFightersTheRugalSaga Kyo Kusanagi]] respectively. They studied martial arts together and grew up as sparring partners, so they've been [[FriendlyRivalry competing against each other]] in full-contact, since childhood. As a result, both are athletic, highly skilled, and are recognized as two of the top contenders in the VG tournament.

* ''Manga/AreaNoKishi'': When Kakeru played alongside his teammate Seven in elementary school [[FootyRules football]], he thought of her this way. He didn't start to notice Seven's more "girly" aspects until just before she had to transfer schools. When she transferred back in high school, however, the difference was [[SheCleansUpNicely quite obvious]].

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 ''[[GirlyGirl other]] [[HelloNurse 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]].

* Kobayashi from ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' was a tomboy as a child, and continues to have a complete lack of interest in anything even remotely feminine as an adult (barring the occasional ACupAngst). [[PlatonicLifePartners Takiya]] even says that she's "just one of the guys around the office".
