* ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'' features a very... odd subversion of this trope - the monk [[TheLoad Xuangzang]] is so perfect an example of The Chick he's (note the masculine) sometimes even ''portrayed'' as such. This, of course, leads to ''tons'' of HoYay with the other main character of the story, [[BadAss Sun]] [[TheLancer Wukong]]. Given his overall uselessness, stupidity, and propensity to be captured by anything under the sun, it's no wonder why most everyone who reads the story [[TheScrappy kinda really hates him]]. In a double subversion, it's also as become common to protray Wukong [[GenderBender as the girl]], just to make him (her?) seem more awesome.

Yes, we understand that a male can fill this role, but this trope is a component of a FiveManBand, which is specifically four guys and a girl. Examples of male characters acting in this way can be found in TheHeart.

* There are a variety of psychology/morality puzzles that involve four people who get themselves into a situation where a series of events occur, usually culminating in tragedy, and the listener is charged with putting the characters in order from who acted the most "right" and who acted the most "wrong". Of the four, only one will ever be female, she will ''always'' be The Chick, and usually she's the one who suffers the tragedy. Where the listener places her in the morality spectrum represents their views on women, regardless of what she does in the puzzle story; the other three usually represent specific virtues or behaviors, but the female represents only women as a whole. With most of these puzzles, putting the female character at anything lower than the Most Right (or, less often, Second Most Right) will label you a misogynist.

* Sakura of ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' is both a straight example and a subversion, since that character had already appeared in another work by the same authors, where she was TheHero. She kept exactly the same personality, but with a serious downgrade in magic abilities and three fighting experts as companions she transformed into a Chick. She also regularly lampshades the fact that she feels useless in the group because of her inability to fight. Later she upgrades to being an ActionGirl once she gets her hands on some guns and ADayInTheLimelight. She also doubles as TheEmpath, the OracularUrchin and TheMessiah. Later, in Infinity country, once a certain member of the group has left, she arguably becomes TheHero and (literally) TheChessMaster.
