A tomboy is a girl who has tastes and behaviors usually associated with boys. Because these associations are culture-dependent and tend to change, what exactly constitutes a "Tomboy" is subjective. Especially historically, any girl interested in [[HotScientist science]], [[WrenchWench mechanics]], or [[ActionGirl combat]] has been called tomboyish.

* '''NoGuyWantsAnAmazon:''' Tomboys are sometimes portrayed as having trouble with relationships, since guys often feel intimidated by a girl who's better at doing guy stuff than they are. [[AmazonChaser Other boys might think this is awesome.]]

Even "local norms" are inconsistent. Consider for example Ukyou and Akane from ''RanmaOneHalf''. Akane is repeatedly identified as a bit of a Tomboy, while Ukyou gets the label of "cute fiancé". Yet they both share several of the traits above. (This is probably an intentional discrepancy within the story). In the end, definition is impossible, and identifying a Tomboy comes down to "knowing it when one sees it" (though the quality of this "knowledge" is dubious).
