* Faye's mother in ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' is something of one (at least compared to her daughters, the elder of whom chose to make her life in darkest Massachusetts and the younger who came out as a lesbian not long after). Faye herself also lampshades this somewhat by jokingly referencing herself with common southern belle stereotypes, such as getting "the vapors" and referring to Massachusetts as the "Godless north." Conversely, she's quite defensive of other people making fun of southern culture.

* Comicbook/{{Rogue}} in the hands of Creator/ChrisClaremont originally was an aversion, as her lower-class origins and tomboy youth on the Mississippi made her more similar to Huckleberry Finn than anything. In later story she still subverted the trope as she only dreamed of being a Scarlett O'Hara-type belle, while in her everyday life wearing pretty unladylike, sometimes masculine clothes and leading the life of a superhero.
* Bunnie Rabbot from the ''[[Comicbook/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog Archie Comics]]'' is said to be this. There was a scrapped plotline about her origins that would have revealed her real name as Scarlet O'Hare.
** While that went nowhere, it's become official canon that while the name has always been spelt "Rabbot", it's actually pronounced [[ItIsPronouncedTroPay "Rah-boh"]]. Nobody calls her that because A: it's only evident in Bunnie's Dixie-ish accent, B: it's spelt Rabbot, and C: her HollywoodCyborg nature makes "Rabbot" too much of a pun to pass up. Her uncle, also a HollywoodCyborg, notes his name got the same treatment.
* GailSimone and Jim Calafiore's original graphic novel ''Leaving Megalopolis'' featured a heroine named Southern Belle who started out as a Bonne Belle until she was corrupted along with the majority of the city's heroes when they fought an EldritchAbomination. She was part of a superhero team alongside Tom-O-Hawk and his son, Scout, but according to Scout she was actually a Mauvaise Belle who butted in on their partnership and treated Scout like crap. She's slated to be a main character in the sequel series ''Surviving Megalopolis'' and is described by Simone as "An incredibly horrible person."

* A horrible, horrible subversion greets you near the beginning of ''VideoGame/{{Uninvited}}''. For the uninitiated ones... well... early in game, you meet a SouthernBelle, or certainly looks like it from the back, described to be similar to the aforementioned Scarlett O'hara. Unless you do ''one'' certain thing and made preparations beforehand, however, she will reveal her face being devoid of flesh and there's nothing but skull in her head, and she starts ripping you away while screaming maniacally. Satisfied yet?
