* The Angels in ''KidouTenshiAngelicLayer''; possibly justified by the fact that they are [[TheKidWithTheRemoteControl mind-controlled]] robots and most operators appear to be adolescent girls that may or may not have [[IKnowMortalKombat seen]] too much She Fu on TV.

* Applies to just about any female character in ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}''. They tend to have higher "Agility" stats and lower "Strength" and "Toughness" stats than their male counterparts. [[GratuitousNinja Lariska]] is probably the most obvious example in-story, however, being incredibly acrobatic with ninja-like abilities.

* Yvonne Craig, who played Batgirl in ''Series/{{Batman}}'', was a trained ballerina. Batgirl's fighting style was heavily [[DanceBattler dance-influenced]], with lots of s
pins and high kicks. Unlike Batman and Robin, she never threw or took a punch (though she would fairly often throw or wield an ImprovisedWeapon).

* In ''Film/IronMan2'', Black Widow uses over-the-top She Fu (and a dash of [[MaskedLuchador Lucha Libre]]) to clear the way to the BigBad's computer system. In ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', the character makes further user of She Fu to escape an interrogation, including seemingly disarming a henchman with her hair.

The sequel shows that Black Widow training involves some ballet.



* In ''Film/SuckerPunch'' Baby Doll uses this kind of fighting in the first fantasy sequence, which is inspired by {{Wuxia}}. She does a few cartwheels and gymnastics to dodge attacks. In the other fantasy sequences, this is averted - as the rest of the girls rely on their weapons and typical hand-to-hand combat.



* After becoming an [[IKnowKarate instant twelfth-degree black belt]] followed by gaining levitation abilities, Phoebe of ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' began to express the trope. As for the other two, the demons rarely ever even got close enough.

As for the other two, the demons rarely ever even got close enough. Billie sometimes dabbled with this, though having telekinesis probably helped.

* Creator/AmyJoJohnson used to be a pro gymnast, so her character Kimberly from ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' naturally used She Fu in her fight scenes.

* Very much averted in the case of ''Series/AgentCarter'' whose fighting style is to punch somebody as hard and as fast as possible, preferably with the aid of the nearest piece of furniture. Or a stapler.
** This is FridgeBrilliance, as all the other women we see fight in the Marvel Cinematic Universe were specifically taught SheFu. Peggy learned to fight in a time and place where the only 'martial art' available to her was probably ''boxing'', and then spent a year or so hanging out with Steve "Bash The Heck Out Of It" Rogers.

* Alexa Bliss on NXT takes this to new levels. She performs a somersault off the top rope for no reason at all. Surprise surprise, she's a former gymnast and cheerleader.

** It can be noticed, though, if you watch e.g. ''Buffy'' closely: it's not jarringly over-abundant throughout the show, but it ''is'' there occasionally nontheless. Might depend on the director of the episode in question. Probably the most ''bizarre'' case of weird flip-stunts occurs in the season 3 episode "Earshot", when Buffy uses a combination of flips that ''defy the laws of physics'' to get up to her high school's clock tower as fast as possible. Likewise, if you watch River Tam's bar fight scene, it's there once or twice (after all, SummerGlau is a [[DanceBattler ballet dancer]] herself.)

* Princesa Sugehit is usually a lunging bite your leg, punch you nether regions fingers under your eye lids broken bottle wielding {{rud|o}}a. She's used a convoluted acrobatics approach as a {{tecnic|o}}a though. Only 5'1 so she usually has to make up the discrepancy ''somehow''.

* Pernica in ''Literature/Opus Gemini'' plays it straight first by flipping through an open window into a surgery room. When she tries to escape by the same way, however, she gets tangled in her dress and awfully hurts herself at the windowsill.
