* Rosita from the 2008 ''Series/DoctorWho'' Christmas special.
** Queen Nefertiti from the episode "Dinosaurs On A Spaceship" is a more regal example, but can hold her own with the Doctor and the Ponds in the banter department.

She's defined by her vivaciousness, humor and joie de vivre, and can make a good counterpoint to the more grim or snarky members of the cast. In complete contrast to her other variation, is not only a pleasure to be around, but is also so the go to girl for advice and help. These characters usually make good leaders, because though generally fun, insightful, they are still firm in decisions, trustworthy, and speak their minds. Also like the SpicyLatina, the character will usually be sexually liberated and have no qualms acting in a sexual manner, though usually in a less pronounced manner. The positive version is now portrayed a lot more than the negative version, mainly because of the UnfortunateImplications, that portraying black women in only this way had. It's also rather common for the positive variant to be the OnlySaneWoman of a group, in which case her "sass" will be more like "[[DeadpanSnarker exasperated sarcasm]]".

Note that this trope might well be on its way to becoming a DiscreditedTrope.

DiscreditedTrope - it's seen as stereotypical and lazy writing and people want to see minority characters given the same nuanced characterisation as anyone else.

** Not every black contestant on ''Series/RuPaulsDragRace'' is sassy, but there's at least one in each season who is [[note]]Except Season 6, where both Trinity K. Bonet and Vivacious were mostly good-natured[[/note]]. One of the most memorable is Season 4's Lashauwn Beyond. She may have been eliminated in the second episode, but not before giving this now-classic line:
