* HarleyQuinn was originally a psychiatrist assigned to SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, but wound up [[MadLove falling in love with him]] and helping him in his crimes. She's an unrepentant murderer, but so cheerful and so absolutely devoted to "Mistah J" that one can't help but pity her when he slaps her around and[=/=]or threatens to kill her.
* Minordomo, assistant to Majordomo (who is Mojo's assistant himself) in ComicBook/{{X-Men}}. She's so [[GenkiGirl genki]] she suffers repeated ''heart attacks'' getting worked up over imagined disasters. Since she is also a robot, this typically just requires someone to hit her reset button, rather than having any lasting effect. This makes the two of them a SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl duo.
* Mariah is the Colonel's perky assassin in ''SinCity'' that is both fashionable and a DeadpanSnarker.

* Khita from ''Literature/TheIronTeeth'' web serial. She's a young woman who is part of Herad's group of bandits. She has a perky personality and her actions are usually used as comic relief. No one really takes her all that seriously, but she's also far from useless in a fight. She really likes her knives.

Compare SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl for a similar dynamic.

dynamic. Contrasts TheBaroness for the exact opposite, a chilly and sadistic villainess.

* Although most of the "leaders" in ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' are fairly "perky" goofballs of CrazyAwesome calibur who have BattleButler archers dedicated to cleaning up the messes they create, the more deadpan characters, like Satori, have GenkiGirl "pets" or "minions" like Okuu and Orin.
** Byakuren, a woman often described as "[[FriendToAllLivingThings Gensokyo Ghandi]]", similarly has utter goofball underlings, like Nazrin... [[MemeticMutation because she's Nazrin!]]

* Although most of the "leaders" in ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' has an all-female cast and most characters are fairly "perky" goofballs of CrazyAwesome calibur who have BattleButler archers dedicated introduced in an antagonistic role, so this shows up on occasion. The best example is probably Futo-- Cheerful, dumb, likes fire, devoted to cleaning up the messes they create, the more deadpan characters, like Satori, have GenkiGirl "pets" or "minions" like Okuu and Orin.

* Tira from ''SoulCalibur'' is this to the grim and brutal [[BigBad Nightmare]]. Granted, she's pretty creepy and insane as well. Bonus points since he feeds her soul to Soul Edge in his story.

* Both played straight and (knowing the game, deliberately) inverted with Undyne and King Asgore of ''VideoGame/Undertale'', Undyne being the [[BloodKnight severe and aggressive warrior]] to Asgore's [TheGoodKing calm, genuinely sweet and caring role as the king]]. Also counts as a straight example, as Undyne is way more unhinged and zany compared to her boss, who's [[spoiler: [[WouldHurtAChild past deeds]] makes him feel like he should never be able to act lightheaded again, even if he wasn't actually the one to carry out the deed (which Undyne, apparently unflincingly, carried out.)]]
