** Judy from ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''. No amount of discrimination will stop her from helping others. [[spoiler: What temporarily brings her down is realizing her own unconscious bigotry actually made things worse for others.]]
* Wendy's daughter Jane from ''Peter Pan: Return To Neverland'' is this PlayedForDrama. She strives to be a PluckyGirl but has forgotten what it means to be a child, since she comes from the England of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII - so she has all the practicality but none of the enthusiasm. By the end, she has recovered her spirits and has morphed into a straight example of it.

* Utena Tenjou from ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', who's both this and a {{Badass}} ActionGirl. Just read about some of the stuff she does on the CrowningMomentOfAwesome page and tell me she's not a Plucky Girl.

*** In ''Fuuin no Tsurugi'', set 20 years later, Princess Lilina is this and some more. Makes sense since her dad is [[{{Badass}} Lord Hector]] [[spoiler:and her mom can either be Lyn, Farina or Florina]]. Other than her, we have: Clarine, Ellen, Princess Guinevere, Thany, Thite, Lalum, Sue, Milady and Fir. Adult versions include: Echidna, Igrene, Cecilia and Niime. "Mayfly" versions include [[spoiler:the dragon Fa]] {{Rare male example}}s include Lugh, [[spoiler: one of Nino's sons]] and TheHero Roy [[spoiler: whose mom can be either Fiora or Lyn.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Shallan Davar gives off this vibe, always ready with a smile and a quip, persevering through sheer pluckiness. It soon becomes clear that [[HiddenDepths she's faking nearly all of this]] [[BrokenBird in order to keep herself functional]]. She goes as far as actively repressing memories, but when push comes to shove she turns into a stone cold pragmatist who is willing to do ''anything'' to survive. [[spoiler:She killed her mother in self-defense when she was eleven, and later poisoned her father to stop him from killing her brother. When that failed to kill him, she calmly strangled him while her brothers watched in horror]].

*''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': There was a time when Ukyo wanted vengeance against Genma Saotome for renegging on his promise to wed her to Ranma, by abandoning her. And despite having caught up to them (years later), she's no closer to achieving her goal of becoming Ranma's bride. You'd think she'd be crushed, but she's actually... kinda okay with it. After all, he calls her "his cute fiancee" and she gets to attend class with him. For her, it's a start. In the meantime, she runs a successful business and tries to think of mostly nonviolent ways to absolve Ranma's engagement to Akane, [[ShipperOnDeck by trying to pair Akane off with Ryoga.]]
