* In ''OnePiece'', after [[HighHeelFaceTurn Nico Robin]] joins the crew, Nami is the first of the crew members to voice her objection over Robin forcing herself into the crew. Robin manages to win Nami over quickly by giving her money, and later she refers to Robin as her CoolBigSis. Of course, Nami's objections were less about Robin's gender, and more because she was TheDragon of the previous arc's BigBad. The fact that Nami had an "older sister" type friendship with Vivi - the princess whose kingdom went through intense turmoil because of Robin's actions - and probably had the most empathy of anyone in the crew for the pain she went through probably had something to do with it as well.

* ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'': [[ActionGirl Yoko]] has some difficulty dealing with [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Nia]] when she joins Team Dai-Gurren, more because her {{Moe}}-ness wins over the guys than because of her being the {{Big Bad}}'s daughter. Possibly justified in that, back then, she considered Nia dead weight: they were fighting a rebellion, and Nia had no combat skills. Then Nia won Yoko over via showing her SilkHidingSteel side, specially via not even blinking when Yoko released her from a monster via ''shooting said monster when it was holding Nia hostage'', and later said she totally trusted Yoko to not fail a shot that could have potentially killed her. It was sealed when Nia asked Yoko to give her an ImportantHaircut (as [[CloseCallHaircut she lost a bit of hair in the rescue process]]) and Yoko did so without any problems.

* One of the first "red flags" in regards to {{Mary Sue}} {{OC Stand In}}s in fanfiction is to see the reactions of the canon female characters around her. If the canon girls get jealous of her, and specially if it's because she attracts the attentions of the males, it's almost a sure thing the "new girl" is a Mary Sue and the canon girl/s will likely be a victim of DieForOurShip.

* When Wendy joins PeterPan's group, Tinkerbell goes [[{{Yandere}} ballistic over this]] and tries to get Wendy shot by the boys.
* [[Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians Anabeth]] acts this way towards Rachel Elizabeth Dare, [[spoiler: though it's mostly out of jealousy because Percy has clearly fallen from her.]]

* An odd variant in ''SomethingPositive:'' [=PeeJee=] joins [[StraightGay Jhim]]'s role-playing group and designs a female character. [[StrawLoser Mike]], who had previously been the only one with a female character, objects to having two in the party. The Dungeon Master, annoyed, declares that something Mike did in their last session has given his character a permanent GenderBender.

* Inverted in an episode of ''TheSimpsons'' where Lisa tries to pull off a JackieRobinsonStory and announces she's joining the football team. Only when she gets there she finds out there's three other girls on the team already and the coach is welcoming. Enraged she can't be the only girl on the team (or protest the use of pigskin footballs since they're entirely synthetic and the producing company donates to charity) she runs off crying.

** This does briefly show up in the first season of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', with [[ActionGirl Korra]] initially disliking [[SpoiledSweet Asami]] due to Asami's relationship with Korra's crush, [[TheAce Mako]], as well as Korra's LoveTriangle-addled perception of Asami being a [[RichBitch stuck-up prissy rich girl]]. This jealousy only lasts for about half an episode, though; as soon as Korra and Asami actually spend some time together and get to know one another, they become good friends. [[spoiler:The trope is ultimately defied with a vengeance when they become [[RelationshipUpgrade become]] [[BiTheWay girlfriends]] in the series finale.]]

Congratulations! You just received a new [[FiveManBand team member]]; and [[SlidingScaleOfGenderInequality against all odds... it's a girl]]! Everyone on the team is happy to finally have a new girl to help balance out the gender ratios... everyone except for the sole girl already on the team! She isn't happy about the equaling of the gender ratio. Turns out, she actually took pride in the fact that she was the only girl on the team. Like the queen bee in a beehive[[note]]as worker bees are female, the queen is actually part of a majority gender-wise. She might be considered a Smurfette fertility-wise, as the worker bees are infertile[[/note]], [[TheSmurfettePrinciple The Smurfette]] doesn't take kindly to her male teammates gushing over the new girl, and takes great exception to her presence. As luck will have it, however, the Smurfette will end up being accused of [[CommanderContrarian just being catty because the new friend is a girl]].

Added DiffLines:

* Happened between Windblade and Strongarm in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRobotsInDisguise2015'' much to the irritation of the fanbase. Thankfully, the tension was gone by the next episode they had together.

* In ''RedVsBlue'', when Agent Tex first met Sister, she was rather hostile toward Sister, even going so far as to lay down the law in a private conversation (which Sister, who is one of the {{Cloudcuckoolander}}s of the series, mistook as "you know, girl stuff").

Then Luke discovers that she was an Imperial DeepCoverAgent after unwittingly shooting her down during a mission; she survives, and eventually returns as [[DarkActionGirl "Lumiya"]].

* {{Subverted}} on ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice.'' [[TheChick M'gann]] actually tried to befriend [[AffirmativeActionGirl Artemis]], but the latter ignored her efforts and openly ogled ComicBook/{{Superboy}}, M'ggan's crush. M'gann was clearly aggravated, but after some light bickering, decided to keep being friendly anyway. Sure enough the two become close friends. Also {{Averted}} later when ComicBook/{{Zatanna}} and then [[ComicBook/{{Icon}} Rocket]] show up.

* Carla toward Dr. Clock in ''{{Scrubs}}''. Mainly because as a psychiatrist Clock was just as good, if not better, at being TheChick and began solving everyone elses problems (while, ironically enough, doing a study into exactly the same sort of workplace hostility while being unaware of Carla's grudge).
* The ''BigBangTheory'': Penny acts like this a couple of times toward an attractive GirlOfTheWeek who will usually be using one of the boys for something. When more permanent members Bernadette and Amy join, though, she's very friendly and bonds with them quickly. Even afterward she ends up this way toward Raj's sister Prya for a while, but ends up befriending her as well (bonding, ironically enough, over their sex life with Leonard.)
* Averted in an episode of the American ''TheOffice''. When a purse saleswoman comes into the office to sell her products, Michael jokes that Pam will be catty to her since she [Pam] is no longer the hottest woman in the office. Both women are understandably repulsed by Michael's statement.

* Lampshaded in ''RedCap'', and put down to the instinctive need of a woman to remove a female rival. When Jo complains this is sexist, her male partner says he'll stop having this belief when women stop proving him right.
