* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Dorothy Gale "Ace" [=McShane=]. Companion to the Seventh Doctor. A juvenile delinquent who whipped up improvised explosives in her spare time, favored Doc Marten boots and Victorian menswear, and took out two Daleks single-handedly - one with a rocket launcher and one with a [[BatterUp enhanced baseball bat.]] In-series, she was mostly a G-rated version. It took an age-up and the novels for her to fully embrace the heavy drinking and casual hookups part, though the series guide says she did have a fling with space pirate Glitz while in her teens.

Also compare her female drinking mates, the HardDrinkingPartyGirl and the LadyDrunk. And, for the ideologies for and against her, see GirlsNeedRoleModels, RealWomenDontWearDresses and VasquezAlwaysDies. TheSquadette may also be a Lad-ette, but it's not a job requirement.

** And now in the SequelSeries, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Korra herself is shaping up to be a Ladette. It's probably best demonstrated when she goes out to dinner with Bolin and they engage in a BurpingContest that she wins. Also, [[ScrewPolitenessImASenior age has only made Toph even crustier]].

Compare and contrast with other tropes about women who look/behave in a traditionally "masculine" way: the {{Tomboy}} (she might have been one when young); {{Bifauxnen}} (where the girl can effectively pass as a male - though ironically while lacking most of the 'masculine' behaviour of the Ladette); AlphaBitch (a pretty and rich variation of the Ladette, may or may not include some sorts of physically masculine behaviours of the latter, and both could overlap); her ancestor, the PirateGirl; and her great-grandmother, who shares some of her mannerisms and points of view, but retains a more feminine image: TheFlapper. Also compare the ButchLesbian, with which this trope may or may not overlap. If that hot girl is acting like a guy because she's not 100% girl, it's a case of EverybodyWantsTheHermaphrodite. Sometimes, especially in anime and manga, one of these gets teamed up with a [[BifauxnenAndLadette more-refined masculine-acting character]].

* Ada "Byron" Lovelace. While literally inventing computer programming over a century before computers existed isn't typical of the Ladette, getting it published by fooling people into thinking "Byron" was her first name, is.

Given her father was Creator/LordByron this shouldn't be much of a surprise.

* Penny from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''. At first glance she's a girly girl, wearing bright tops and loving Romantic Comedies however, it's very quickly reveled she was in Junior Rodeo, knows how to use a gun, often lounges around in sweats, is pretty much a slob, a hard drinker, [[GamerChick when she cares about a video game enough she's freakin' amazing at]] and she's very much the [[MasculineGirlFeminineBoy the masculine girl to Leonard's feminine guy]]. Three guesses who the guys go to when they need a lesson on how to gut a fish or need someone to kill a spider in their apartment.

Sometimes, this woman's personality is explained by her having [[IHaveBrothers grown up with brothers]] or [[RaisedAsTheOppositeGender been raised as a boy]].

* ''Manga/PandoraHearts'':
** Alice the B-rabbit is not only the most powerful Chain in the Abyss, she also insults everyone she meets, likes to eat meat and fight, can win arm-wrestling matches. Her idea of greeting someone is by "biting" them on the cheek, and she loves to fight. [[spoiler: When she was human, she was also this. She liked to wear dark dresses as opposed to her sister, who is lady-like in every way. She also likes to sit down on and beat up her plushies.]]
** Lacie is also this too. She sneaks out of her tower at every opportunity, does whatever the heck she wants, and even runs away to PISS her brother off when he lets her win a match.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'': Kyouko Sakura is the poster child for this in a MagicalGirlWarrior series. She eats food without manners and [[BigEater at a fast rate]], [[SirSwearsALot curses constantly]], and [[BloodKnight loves to start fights]]. This is in contrast with the other {{Tomboy}} of the series, Sayaka Miki, who [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak has her moments of girlishness]].
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': Kallen Kozuki is a great example of this. She pilots a Knightmare Frame in the first episode, can hold her own against opponents even when not wearing any clothing, and she even beats up someone while wearing a dress.



* Kaori Makimura from ''Manga/CityHunter''. Her fashion sense and language are distinctly masculine.
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': Kallen Kozuki is a great example of this. She pilots a Knightmare Frame in the first episode, can hold her own against opponents even when not wearing any clothing, and she even beats up someone while wearing a dress.
* Sensei of ''Manga/DenkiGaiNoHonyaSan'' is the most serious and dedicated of the girls about work and manga, lives like a complete slob, prefers a tracksuit and sweats to any other outfit and is the most comfortable when talking about sexual situations, though she still blushes fairly easily. She actually doesn't like that she's so incredibly unfeminine, and worries that it'll affect her chances of getting a boyfriend.



* Played straight in the anime that is ''Anime/GalaxyAngel'' with Forte, what with being the obsessed GunNut that she is. Subverted with the game from which the anime was adapted (See the Video Games section entry).
* ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'': Major Kusanagi fits this trope perfectly when she's not working. She likes beer, drives very aggressively, [[LesYay likes girls]], loves to scare the shit out of people, and is well known to the owners of some less reputable bars. Also in the manga, she's living with her boyfriend who's also a cop. At one point Batou even asks her if she'd ever consider switching to a male cybernetic body.

* Elvy Hadhiyat of ''Anime/RahXephon''. Not only is she a {{Badass}} pilot and the leader of TERRA's airforce, but she also loves to get drunk and she even [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments attempts to seduce Ayato while drunk]] despite being over 10 years his senior.
-->'''Elvy:''' You wanna lock on? Dogfight 'til morning, cutey?

* ''Anime/SchoolRumble'' has Mikoto Suo, who's basically [[OneOfTheBoys 'the guy']] in her group of friends. Not only is she the most athletic girl at their school, she's been studying Kenpo alongside Hannai, since childhood, and they spar regularly. She's also a drinker, though she only does it in moderation.
* There are several in ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'', but the cake is undoubtedly taken by Mito Ikumi, who, ironically, manages to be TheOjou as well. She's the heiress to a major meatpacking corporation, and her masculine traits were cultivated by her father, who was grooming her to survive in the frat-houselike atmosphere of the meat industry.
