* ''ComicBook/HackSlash'': Cassie. Although she constantly [[{{Stripperiffic}} looks like a stripper]], she's tough, cold, and quite prone to delivering a ClusterFBomb. She really hates it when she drools in her sleep, though. Her diary is also bright pink (bloodstains aside...), and has a unicorn sticker on it. RealMenWearPink, perhaps? Certainly subverts RealWomenDontWearDresses.

Certainly subverts RealWomenDontWearDresses. The ''Resurrection'' series intensified this, as the now twentysomething Cassie has much fewer inhibitions about casual sex than when she was a teenager.

** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' the female Warden of the Dwarf Noble and Human Noble origins tends to lean into this trope. If the Warden is a female Noble Human and classed as a fighter, her mother with express some chagrin that she spends so much time sparing, sweating like a mule. During their final confrontation, Arl Howe mocks the Female Human Noble Warden for her unladylike behaviour.

* Wendy from GravityFalls is a FieryRedhead with a bunch of brothers, a father who's infamous (and named) for being manly, usually wields an axe as her signature weapon, is very attractive, and mostly acts like OneOfTheBoys.

** Of the game's human characters, [[HotTeacher Aiko Yumi]] also qualifies. She's very swear-happy, has a high sex drive and speaks very casually about what she likes in bed, and is one of the few characters who'll take alcohol at any time of day.
-->'''Aiko''': "That was a pussy drink! Hit me with something stronger!"

* ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick''. When she's not reviewing, she'll be dressed in messy clothes with her hair down and no make-up on. In the beginning of ''Film/{{Kickassia}}'', she spends most of her time drinking beer and disinterestedly going along with the crowd--and it's quite clear, once the Critic becomes N Bison, that her submissive little conservative woman persona is, aside from a dig at SarahPalin, an act to get herself more power.

* [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/lamaupin.html Julie d'Aubigny]]: Though she had a quite successful career as an opera singer in the 17th century, she had a life that reads like the one of [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Jack Sparrow]].

Despite (or perhaps because of) their masculine personalities, Lad-ettes are generally heavily sexualised and are not likely to let any males in the company forget they are female. They usually disdain the hassle of highly elaborately feminine clothing/hair/makeup, but don't often dress in a truly cross-dressing way; TankTopTomboy is a common Lad-ette style. They are also generally attractive; a genuinely ''[[BrawnHilda ugly]]'' Lad-ette is very unusual. Male characters may well be sexually interested in Lad-ettes for various reasons, whether it's appreciation of their masculine personality and interests, because they don't disapprove of laddish behaviour, because Lad-ettes have lower body modesty and a more practical attitude than more "ladylike" women and hence show more skin, or simply because of their assumed openness to the idea of casual sex. In turn, a Lad-ette can be utterly shameless in exploiting male sexual interest for her own personal advantage.

* Jun Kubota from ''VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo'' is a former olympic-level wrestler who drinks lots of beer, rides a motorcycle, uses the {{Japanese Pronoun|s}} "ore" for herself, and has a reputation for being a merciless opponent. She does, however, have a GuiltyPleasure for stuffed animals and is quite the GeniusBruiser.
