Typical depictions of Straw Feminists usually present them as [[DoesNotLikeMen misandrists]] who exhibit [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Politically Incorrect Villainy]]. Expect depictions to show them as stereotypical {{butch lesbian}}s, unattractive elderly women or attractive yet devious [[FemmeFatale femmes fatales]] or in [[UpToEleven the more extreme cases]] being hyper-militants that see [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale obscene violence towards]], the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Nazi-like]] [[DayOfTheJackboot subjugation of]], or even [[KillThemAll the total]] [[{{Gendercide}} extermination of]] any living being with a Y chromosome as an acceptable thing to do. It is not uncommon to see works from textbook feminists using this depiction to criticize the more radical forms of feminism.

* Jill's friend Karen in the first couple of seasons of ''Series/HomeImprovement'' exists mostly to accuse men (in general) and Tim (specifically) of being [[MenUseViolenceWomenUseCommunication aggressive]], [[MenAreUncultured uncultured]], [[CompetitionFreak overly-competitive]], [[AllMenArePerverts over-]][[MaleGaze sexed]], etc. The fact that [[TheUnfairSex the show seems to]] ''[[TheUnfairSex agree]]'' means she is presented as "straw" more by reason of the presentation (angry and accusatory, versus the show mining it for "comedy") than the content of her opinions.

* Taken to a ridiculous extreme in the parody ([[PoesLaw probably]]) ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' fanfic [[Fanfic/MRATrilogy The Most Men's Rights Activist Fanfic Ever Made]], where the "[[StrawMisogynist protagonists]]" are violent and frankly psychotic [[HeManWomanHater MRAs]] and the antagonists (including Elsa) are stereotypical Tumblr feminists. However, while the "antagonists" do fall into several feminist stereotypes, like being pagan and sexually progressive, only Elsa and [[EmoTeen Anna]] come across as evil; the other Disney princesses are perfectly normal people [[MoralEventHorizon that get violently attacked by the protagonists]].

* ''[[Franchise/CarryOn Carry On Girls]]'' ''Film/CarryOnGirls'' has a group subverted versions of these protesting the this trope. The feminists in this movie don't actually hate men (many of them are HappilyMarried), but just don't want any {{Dirty Old M|an}}en (particularly young and impressionable ones) perverting over young women at a beauty contest.

* To some extent, some of the female characters from ''Series/DegrassiJuniorHigh'' and ''Series/DegrassiHigh'' ''might'' qualify, due to their tendency to generally look down on boys and [[RealWomenDontWearDresses deem anything where the woman is the victim or otherwise not the hero "sexist".]] For example, Lucy calls Alfred Hitchcock's ''Psycho'' sexist...because the person who gets stabbed in the shower is female. Lucy even creates a movie where the gender roles are reversed to make a "statement" about feminism. Her classmates were too busy laughing at the movie to get the statement (male ''and'' female). However, this is justified to a degree given the time period both shows take place in (the eighties, fresh out of the feminism modern movement). They are teenagers most likely ''beginning'' to learn about feminism, and may have found their first exposure to the more-vocal and fundamentalist elements of the movement, making them ''look'' like Straw Feminists. But they all did get the very basic concept (women deserve the same rights as men) about right.

* {{Deconstructed|Trope}} and possibly subverted (depending on your choices) by Catherine in ''VideoGame/DivinityDragonCommander'': She's the queen of the literal Amazons, but was disposed by a ''heavily'' misygonistic man and forced to work for you, a male, as a general. Furthermore, her people are forced to deal with the new patriarchal, sexist society (including RapePillageAndBurn tactics by your armies) when they're used to a matriarchal one - going from one extreme to the other[[note]] Males were denied positions of authority in her Queendom[[/note]]. If her complaints about sexism in your army are addressed, however, she cheers up significantly, albeit with a dose of [[YouAreACreditToYourRace You Are A Credit To Your Gender]] attitude towards the player.

* Paperinika, Daisy Duck DistaffCounterpart of Donald superhero-alter ego in ''Comic/DisneyDucksComicUniverse''. Character featured in old Italian and Brazilian comics, she claim that female genre is totally superior to male. Indeed, she take initially this identity just to avenge abuses received by male pepole. This is also one of reason because the character wasa bandoned for years by Italian authors (this and because brazilain authors made her in pretty much TheAce who constantly one-upped and humiliated Paperinik). Thankfull this trait is toned down in the modern appearances.

** A later episode involves Springfield Elementary being segregated by gender thanks to one due to controversial comments made by Principal Skinner. However, the class by the new principal is actually just a thinly-veiled lecture on female empowerment so much so that even Lisa gets sick of it quickly and defects to the boy's school.
