* ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn''
** Karis acts calm and gracious in public, and generally acts as TheFace of the party for much of the game (especially since TheLeader of the group [[TheSilentBob doesn't talk much]]). However, to her friends, she's a HotBlooded {{Tsundere}}, and not above punching out [[TheBigGuy Tyrell]] to get his attention.
** Prince Amiti may count as a RareMaleExample: he's a SpoiledSweet ShelteredAristocrat, but he's also smart, sensible, charismatic, and brave enough to stand up for his moral values even when the ''entire player party'' is arguing otherwise. And he can [[WarriorPrince tear up a battlefield]].

* From the SequelSeries, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Asami is the SpoiledSweet daughter of a prominent industrialist, pretty and proper... who is also a race car driver and has had the best self-defense training money can buy. [[spoiler:She'll electrocute her own father if it means doing the right thing and saving authority figures and her friends from terrorists.]] As the fighting escalates, she dispenses with more and more silk until she better fits LadyOfWar than this trope. There's a visual cue to demonstrate the switch from silk to steel: [[spoiler: her formal induction into the [[FanNickname the Krew]] shows her switching from her 'rich girl' clothes to a trenchcoat and PowerFist.]]

** Rosa of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' first appears to be TheChick, due to [[spoiler:being helpless and then kidnapped for the first quarter of the plot]], but once she joins permanently, you realize she's a combination of this and [[TheHealer the Healer]]; she can seriously '''fuck shit up''' with her Aim ability. And her absolute [[Awesome/FinalFantasyIV Crowning Moment of Awesome]] is '''refusing to move out of Cecil's way after he ordered her off the Big Whale for the final confrontation''', flat out telling him that she won't let him go unless he takes her with him.

* ''VideoGame/Persona4'' has Yukiko, who is generally a calm and serene person 60% of the time, and a lovable goofball 30%. The remaining 10%? A [[LadyOfBlackMagic living nuke]] who is ''not'' afraid to let you have it if you've pissed her off. Paparazzi beware.

* Euphemia of ''FanFic/AColdCalculus'' is still kind-hearted and idealistic much like her canon counterpart, if a bit more grounded, but she shows more steel in the face of threats. [[spoiler:When the Blood of the Samurai takes Nunnally hostage]], she threatens to KillEmAll and later (through Cornelia) follows through with it.

** [[TheMarvelousDeer Xerneas]] is an incredibly pretty, elegant Pokémon... that happens to be [[OlympusMons the boxart legendary]] for ''[[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Pokémon X]]''. It naturally learns [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown Close Combat]] and has a signature move that raises its special stats and speed ''two levels''; [[OhCrap most of its attacking moves]], ''[[OhCrap including its STAB moves]]'', [[OhCrap run off special attack]]. It should also be mentioned that [[OurFairiesAreDifferent its type]] was [[ObviousRulePatch created as a]] {{Nerf}} [[TheDragonSlayer for Dragon-types]], which include the aforementioned shark-jetplane-dragon-Pokémon and a Pokémon that had ''no effective counters''.
