* BrandonSanderson likes to play with this trope; he has a number of female characters that can [[ActionGirl kick ass]], and are also generally comfortable with femininity.

** The sister-wives of Aegon the Conqueror also play with the trope. Visenya wielded a Valyrian sword, established the Kingsguard (and started with cutting her brother's cheek), and was generally acknowledged as the fierce and stern one. Rhaenys was lovely, friendly (unless you are Meria Martell), and a patroness of arts. Results: Visenya is usually remembered as a wicked queen, who had (maybe) poisoned her stepson/nephew to make way for her own son, [[TheDread Maegor the Cruel]]. Rhaenys was beloved by her brother and the smallfolk. Apart from vague rumors of infidelity, there's nothing said against her.

* "WesternAnimation/TheEmojiMovie" has Jailbreak, a princess emoji who despises the gender roles associated with them. This causes her to define her life in opposition to femininity, even rejecting romance. She seems to revert back to the exact opposite role by the film's end.

* ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' had Peppermint Patty, the most athletic female character, wear shorts in contrast to the other girls' dresses. What's interesting is this is actually a minor point of angst for Patty, who has severe self image issues (she once broke down crying upon seeing the Little Red Haired Girl, her UknownRival for Charlie Brown's affections) and wants dearly for someone to see her as beautiful. That said, however, a short arc showed Patty being not at all pleased with her school imposing a dress code ''forcing'' her to wear a dress. The conclusion we can draw from this is that while Patty wants to be seen as beautiful and feminine, she wants it on ''her'' terms, and not at the expense of her natural tomboy personality or athleticism. Lucy and Sally later stopped wearing dresses in the 1980s.

** A short arc involved Patty's school enforcing a dress code which required her to wear a dress. She was not at all happy about it.

* Subverted with Gemma from ''VideoGame/NinjaPizzaGirl. She seems quite [[{{Tomboy}} tomboyish]] at first glance, what with [[LeParkour leaping across rooftops]] and all, but she also likes tea, [[GirlsLoveChocolate chocolate]] and bubble baths, [[TextileWorkIsFeminine makes her own clothes]], is very caring and nurturing with a soft spot for cute children and StarCrossedLovers, favours non-violent solutions and gets giddy when a cute boy pays attention to her. Needless to say, none of that stops her from being heroic and getting stuff done.
