* ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'': This is Fall-From-Grace in a nutshell. Despite being a succubus, she's a ProperLady who's calm, chaste, intellectual, and polite. And she will unhesitatingly blast you in the face with [[ShockAndAwe Call Lightning]] should you threaten someone she cares about.

** On the surface, Captain Unohana seems to be the kindest, most motherly character in the entire verse. However, she's a captain in a meritocratic military, so she must be {{Badass}}. Then it's revealed the [[BloodKnight 11th Division]] is terrified of her. Then it's revealed she's the second strongest captain behind Yamamoto. [[spoiler:Then it's revealed that this sweet, demure woman was the ''First Kenpachi'' of the Eleventh Division, meaning she was the most skilled, powerful, and [[BloodLust battle-hungry]] swordsman alive. In fact, [[SociopathicHero Kenpachi Zaraki]] ''modelled his AxCrazy behaviour on hers''.]]

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has Queen Mikoto and Ryoma's subordinate Kagerou as straight-up YamatoNadeshiko, but many other girly girls have this. The biggest example is Mikoto's ward [[spoiler: and niece]] Lady Azura, a quiet DanceBattler who is also blunt in her opinions, kind and helpful in her interactions with others, and plucky as Hell when either she needs to defend herself or someone else needs her help.

Mikoto's youngest daughter Sakura is a variant; she's a ShrinkingViolet but is no pushover where it really counts and has risked her life to help people many times.

* '’VideoGame/TotalWarShogun2’’: Geisha assassins are one of the most deadly weapons at a daimyo's disposal. While a ninja will be killed if he fails an assassination attempt, a geisha will simply wait for the right opportunity to strike, which she eventually will do so with extreme prejudice. [[HighClassCallGirl All while hiding her intent under a completely unthreatening veneer.]] The only way a rival daimyo can stop her is by using one of his own assassins to kill her, who may or may not succeed.
