* ''{{Series/Merlin|2008}}'': nicely {{averted|Trope}} by Morgana and Guinevere, whom are feminine, with an interest in frocks and flowers, but ''both'' are more than happy to don pants, rolls their sleeves up, and get down to work when the situation requires it.

It may lead to FanDumb or HateDumb if one is portrayed as being "better" than the other, if the girly girl is portrayed as shallow or [[RealWomenNeverWearDresses less of a strong woman]], or if the tomboy is portrayed as a cold [[DoesNotLikeMen man hater]] or even [[AmbiguouslyGay ambiguously lesbian]] for taking a less traditional gender role. Works that involve ValuesDissonance are particularly vulnerable to this.

** Bulma and Chi-Chi also play with this trope. In the middle of the series, after Lunch has been [[BrotherChuck chucked out]], Bulma is the adventurous wrench wench while Chi-Chi is mostly concerned with being a good wife and mother. However, later on in the series, Bulma settles down and doesn't change much otherwise, but Chi-Chi has relaxed a lot and is much more comfortable with reminding everyone that she's an extremely skilled martial artist in her own right.

** Among the Kanto Gym Leaders, Misty, who's explicitly called a tomboy on the signpost outside of her gym, is the tomboy to nature-loving [[TheOjou princess]] Erika's girly girl. In the [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} animated series]], Misty followed Ash and Pikachu everywhere he goes because he destroyed her bike in episode 1 due to a massive Spearow attack while bringing Pikachu to the Pokemon Center (all the way through her final farewell). Erika, on the other hand, had recently banned Ash from her perfume-filled gym but Team Rocket tricked him to become Ash(ley) while being in a cute formal gown prior to getting into the gym and getting their hands on a perfume bottle in which they blew up the gym with bombs, causing it to set on fire but Ash(ley) rescued Gloom from the gym's burning flames. In-game, you can also tell by their battle styles (Misty prefers brutal physical combat, while Erika is more a LadyOfWar type when it comes to battling), plus in all their appearances Erika's outfits[[note]]none of which deviate from the "traditional Japanese" look[[/note]] look more conservative.
