* ''[[ComicBook/RobinSeries]]'': The group Tim hangs out with at school only really includes two girls his rather girly girlfriend Ariana who wants to be a fashion designer and the rather tomboyish Callie Evans who structures her life around basketball and plays tabletop [=RPGs=] with the guys. Amusingly both of them play basketball for the school though Ariana drops off the team. After Ariana and Tim break up Callie only seems to become more of a tomboy, chopping her hair into a short pixie cut no longer wearing feminine tops.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' has [[TheSocialDarwinist Kjelle]] the archetypical {{Tsundere}} Severa, whose supports involve the latter giving the former lessons on how to be a "proper lady"... which works so well that it somehow results in Kjelle forgetting how to fight. This is accentuated by their hairstyles and default class outfits - Kjelle has a short {{BobHaircut}} and bulky armor as a Knight, while Severa has long {{TwinTails}} with a more lithe, shoulder-baring Mercenary outfit.

* ''Manga/HimechanNoRibon'':
** Himeko is an impulsive GenkiGirl who is good at sports and has BoyishShortHair. Her AlternateUniverse counterpart Erika is a near-mirror image of Himeko, except that she is a long-haired girly princess.
** Another foil to Himeko is her sister Aiko, a calm, soft-spoken, domesticated girl who is considered very beautiful. Himeko would like to be more feminine like her.

** To a lesser extent is Cynthia to Severa. While not nearly as obvious, Cynthia is still an excitable {{GenkiGirl}} who wants to be heroic above all else and shows relatively little care for girly endeavors, while Severa, even if still a very capable fighter herself, puts a great deal of pride and emphasis into being a "proper lady".

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 [[RealWomenDontWearDresses 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. In the hands of a less capable (especially [[MostWritersAreMale male]]) writer, it can carry the implication that while the men of the team can have varied personalities unrelated to their gender, the women are defined by their femininity or lack thereof (hence why there are only two).

(thus limiting their characterization and role variety).
