* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' of Creator/AAPessimal, the Assassins' Guild School elevates sport to a level where the trainee Assassin is expected to deploy all their skills in the pursuit of victory. Well, ''almost'' all. Competitive running races in track and field - normally bloodless - become something of a passion to Mariella Smith-Rhodes, a distance runner who finds herself fighting battles with an equally gifted peer which become to-the-wire duels of their wits, enduarance, and ability to read a situation. To her surprise, Mariella finds that she passionately cares about winning. Her [[DarkestAfrica Howondalandian]] nemesis feels the same way too.

* The swimmer Aoi Asahina from ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' is such a PassionateSportsGirl that her title is ''Super High-School Level Swimmer'' as well as the reason why she was chosen to be in Hope's Peak to start. And swimming's just what she's best at, as she participates in six different sports clubs. And if we count MixedMartialArts as a sport, then ''Super High-School Level Wrestler'' Sakura Oogami fits as well.

She is also a more accessible LoveInterest for the hero, since he can get to know her better by playing sports with her. There is a bit of WishFulfillment here for both the guys (who want a girlfriend they can talk about sports with) and the girls (who want to associate themselves easier with sporty guys). On the other hand, making sports her priority can [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon be intimidating]], at least at first.

* Lynn Loud Jr. from ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' plays every sport imaginable everywhere, even if it destroys the house. She even has various pre-game rituals for good luck. Unusually for a female, she's a DumbJock and also a bit of a JerkJock (she's quick to use physical force to get her way), though she's still portrayed as sympathetic as any of her siblings.

Female athletes are depicted differently in fiction from male athletes. While their male counterparts are usually either [[DumbMuscle|dumb]] or [[JerkJock|mean]], fictional female athletes are usually given sympathetic portrayals and used to explore gender roles.

The passionate sports girl can put the JerkJock in his place by beating him at his own sport. She can vary from being a sweet and shy yet diligent player, to being a dark personality who just wants to play football. The specific sport she pursues is often dependent on personality; {{tomboy}}s will likely be into soccer, basketball, swimming, martial arts, baseball or softball, whereas {{girly girl}}s will favor tennis, ice skating, gymnastics and volleyball.
