* Because of cultural differences, most Western women can be considered the tomboys to most Eastern women's girly-girls. This is because in most countries like Japan, women are expected and raised to confirm to traditional gender roles, whereas Western women are typically expected[=/=]encouraged to stand equally to men, such as having a job.

** Straight Tomboy Tatsuki became friends with Girly Girl [[CloudCuckoolander Orihime]], after repeatedly [[BullyHunter defending her from bullies]] who used to pick on her because of her hair color, when she was younger. So Orihime used to cut her hair in hopes that they'd leave her alone. But thanks to Tatsuki, she allowed her hair to grow long, as a symbol of her gratitude and their friendship. Most other females fall in between this spectrum.
** Rukia and Orihime subvert the trope, initially appearing to have Rukia as the tomboy and Orihime as the girly-girl. Behind Rukia's rough attitude is someone who loves rabbits, plushies, dresses, romance stories, and cutsey artwork. Behind [[LongHairIsFeminine Orihime's]] nurturing personality, TechnicalPacifism, and HealingHands abilities, is a black belt[[note]]The anime inexplicably changes this to yellow belt[[/note]] karate expert and a lover of robots, boys comics, and sci-fi. So Rukia is a Girly Tomboy and Orihime is a Girly Girl.

** Rei and Saya are both tomboys as compared to Shizuka. Rei is a straightforward example, due to [[http://www.mangareader.net/170-11311-43/high-school-of-the-dead/chapter-1.html her appearance and temperament]], as well as having been trained in Soujutsu ("spear fighting") by her mother. Saya, on the other hand, is a [[ShortTank Short]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/170-11328-32/high-school-of-the-dead/chapter-18.html Tank]], though still [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak somewhat feminine.]] Whereas Shizuka is very feminine, complete with [[GirlyRun girly running]] and being concerned with fashion...

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Buffy is the chosen Vampire Slayer who, while she is a very athletic ActionGirl, definitely cares a great deal about fashion, her hair, and makeup, and is (or was, before Slaying took up too much of her time) a cheerleader - basically the epitome of GirlyGirlWithATomboyStreak. When the other Slayer Kendra shows up she is seen as the perfect Slayer: solemn, respectful, and efficient...to the extent of being unconcerned with such 'trivial' things as [[TheSpock clothing or personal attachments]]; her personality is starkly contrasted with Buffy's. They initially [[TeethClenchedTeamwork butt heads due to these differences]], but grow to be friends, providing a classic albeit subtle version of the trope.
** Later, Faith also helps play out this trope with Buffy, though in a different way, as she's also more reckless, aggressive, and prone to BlackAndGrayMorality than LawfulGood-style Kendra ever was. Goes to show TropesAreFlexible, especially in the hands of Creator/JossWhedon.
