* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'': Sydney is a merc who modifies her own guns, and, at the end of the day, uses the money she's made to get stinking drunk. The game is full of these, actually, such as Riley and Brick of Riley's Rangers, Sarah Lyons, and female Raiders and Slavers. About the only conventionally feminine women in the game are Vault-dwellers, scientists, the women of Andale, and one crazy woman in Arefu who thinks it's pre-war time and you're there to deliver her catalogues.
* In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', Rose of Sharon Cassidy, a.k.a. Cass, is a fairly pure embodiment of this trope: a hard-drinking, dick-joke cracking, unabashedly sexual woman.
* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has Cait, a self-serving hard-drinking hard-fighting chem-huffing [[FightingIrish Irish-born pit fighter]]. [[spoiler:While she ditches the chems in her personal quest, she never loses her bloodlust.]]

* 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.

* Aveline from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' can hold her own in a fight rather better than most, is stubborn to a fault, and is rather masculine in temperament; she's rather more mature and less comfortable with courtship than most examples of this trope but she certainly behaves a lot more like a male character in a fantasy game than a female one. She's also described, despite being rather calm and reserved, as being so physically strong she's ''terrifying''. Isabela is a much better example: she enjoys her fights, drinks, gambling, big boats and casual sex encounters, and she's not rude but loves to tease people with innuendo.
** A Female Hawke with the sarcastic personality definitely falls into this category, being a witty, irreverent FightMagnet. At the end of the day she'd much prefer to head down to Lowtown and have a few drinks at ''[[GoodGuyBar The Hanged Man]]'', instead of attending formal balls and banquets with the nobility. Likewise, their mother is exasperated that her hopes of finding a "proper" husband are scuppered because her chosen romantic partners are either an ex-Warden Apostate, a Dalish Blood-Mage, a Pirate or an Elven ex-slave.

* {{Deconstruct|ion}}ed with Chie from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''.

Her social link focuses on {{Reconstruct|ion}}ing the trope and in the [[PlayableEpilogue epilogue]] of [[UpdatedRerelease The Golden]], [[spoiler:Chie sports a more feminine look, without compromising her [[{{Tomboy}} Tomboyish]] character.]]

While she doesn't fully look, or even act the part (on top of [[SupremeChef doing all the cooking for the two of them]], she wears thick makeup and a lacy dress, and in ''Innocent Sin'', Maya mentions that it's Ulala who does her wardrobe for her), she is abrasive, [[SirSwearsALot foul-mouthed]], loves alcohol, and is an avid boxer. As time passes, we learn that it's all a cover for her [[InferioritySuperiorityComplex low self-esteem]]; despite having a lot of skills under her belt, she's stuck at a dead-end job and has been swindled by a number of past boyfriends, whereas Maya has a prolific editing job and is constantly fawned on by men. This jealousy and fear that her life has no meaning comes to a head when [[spoiler:she drunk-dials JOKER, as calling him allows the caller to kill whomever they wish, and she nearly turns into a Joker herself]]. CharacterDevelopment helps her out with this.

* ''Film/TheTroubleWithAngels'' A 1966 film where Hayley Mills plays a girl named Mary Clancy in a Catholic boarding school who shows traits of this. Since it's a family film in the 1960's it was pretty tame, but the indications were all there. She's a smoker, likes breaking rules for the sake of it, doesn't seem to care about being punished, and the school's Mother Superior describes her as having "a will of iron".

* ''Series/TheCatherineTateShow'' has Tate's best-known character, Lauren Cooper. She's ''extremely'' crass, rude, and disrespectful, openly insulting her teachers with stereotypes and refusing to listen to authority in any given situation. In a special sketch for Red Nose Day, she mocked then-Prime Minister Tony Blair, who turned her own catchphrase ("Am I bovvered?") back on her as ''he'' teased her. But Tate's performance as Lauren during the Royal Variety Performance topped it all. Who did she make fun of on that occasion? Queen Elizabeth II...while Her Majesty was ''sitting in the audience.'' Tate-as-Lauren even insulted her directly ("Is One bovvered? Who's watchin' the Corgis?"). Unsurprisingly (given her status as a CoolOldLady), Queen Elizabeth [[ActuallyPrettyFunny laughed along with the rest of the crowd.]]



* ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' had Roz, who, while classier than Carla from ''Cheers,'' was still tough-talking, [[ReallyGetsAround very openly sexual]], and ''definitely'' the [[MasculineGirlFeminineBoy more masculine in her and Frasier's friendship]]. In one episode, Martin invited Roz to join his weekly poker game with his drinking buddies--something he'd never even done with his own sons.



* On ''GeorgeLopez'', Benny is a good example of this trope. It is also {{lampshaded}} many times in the series.

Added DiffLines:

* One [[TheStinger closing gag]] on ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'' revealed that Roseanne and Jackie's mother Bev was secretly this. Around most people, she was incredibly shrill, condescending, and controlling, but when she was alone with Fred (Jackie's husband), the two bonded over beer, sports, and general slovenliness. Bev even said that she deliberately puts on her annoying persona [[ForTheLulz just to amuse herself]].


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/StillStanding'' had Judy Miller, who was just as willing to crack open a beer and watch a Chicago Bears game as her husband Bill. She often tried to claim that [[WomenAreWiser she was the more "intellectual" and cultured of the pair]], but often ended up getting into just as much trouble as he did. One episode even lampshaded it: Tina, the family's youngest daughter, has a spider in her room, and runs to her mother to kill it, which upsets Bill and sends him on a quest to prove his status as the "man of the house."

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': A big part of Brienne's character is that she's very much "one of the boys" in the less-than-progressive Westeros. In "The Lion and the Rose", she bows to Joffrey and Margaery instead of performing a curtsy. When Cersei inquires about this odd behavior, Brienne explains that she could never master the curtsy.
