* ''Film/RememberTheTitans'': Sheryl Yoast and Nikki Boone. While both of their fathers are high school football coaches, Sheryl knows enough about football to coach the team herself, and it's practically all she thinks about, while Nikki is mostly concerned with her nails and dolls.

** While Makoto and Ami are generally close friends and foils, both are usually too much of a mix of boyish and girly traits to fit. In the live-action, though, Makoto is an outright tomboy who plays basketball and eschews girly things and Ami gets a GirlinessUpgrade, complete with more feminine hair, and is now shyer than ever.

* Anna and Elsa of ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. They are close sisters and although both dress femininely Anna is the one to stuff her face with food, punch out [[spoiler:a prince]], rescue her sister in the place of [[spoiler:choosing to kiss Kristoff]], act awkwardly, is NotAMorningPerson with the hairstyle and drool to match, and ride a bicycle indoors. By contrast, Elsa is more reserved and graceful, and strives to be a "perfect girl" as a way to control her emotions and her ice powers.

*** Also, a non-mage female Hawke and her younger sister Bethany are the tomboy and girly-girl, respectively. This is an odd case, since Hawke is the PlayerCharacter and may have girly-girl tendencies that the game simply doesn't allow her to display. Bethany, however, is very much a girly-girl, expressing an enjoyment of pretty clothes and shoes.

The two ladies will have some sort of relationship with each other, whether they're best friends, on the same team, or even explicit lovers. Even when they aren't explicit lovers, this may lead to deliberate or accidental HomoeroticSubtext due to the overlap with the [[ButchLesbian Butch]][=/=][[LipstickLesbian Femme]] stereotype of lesbian pairings. If they're together for reasons outside their control (i.e., part of a team), they might initially dislike or confuse each other with their ways, until the inevitable GirlsNightOutEpisode forces them to put aside their differences and forge a common bond (note: if there are more than two girls in the group, these two must have some kind of relationship over the others).

* [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Lady Inquisitor]] Victoria is the girly-girl to her good friend Cassandra's tomboy in ''Fanfic/TwiceUponAnAge''. They're both sword-wielding warriors, but Victoria - unlike Cassandra - is perfectly willing to let her hair down and put on a dress. Cassandra is a TomboyWithAGirlyStreak, however, owing to her love of romantic literature and gestures.



* ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'': [[RebelliousPrincess Princess Merida]] (Hobbies include archery, horse archery, the sword, and rock climbing) and [[TheHighQueen Queen Elinor]] (who has been pressing weaving, manners, and other elegant pursuits on the former her whole life to little avail). They ''really'' don't see eye-to-eye as the film starts, but when Merida has to be diplomatic with three angry clans of warriors and Elinor has to help her daughter fight off a supernatural threat, they start to understand the other woman's point of view

* ''Videogame/DinerDash'' introduced Flo, a pony-tailed former stockbroker who eagerly dove into entrepreneurship and waitressing/restaurant management. Spin-off ''Wedding Dash'' added her room-mate Quinn, a longer-haired, visibly feminine woman who initially seemed reluctant to work at all... and when she did find -- or more accurately, was forced into -- a profession she wanted to do, it was being a wedding planner.

** On the Sliding Scale of Tomboyishness Versus Girliness ([[YouKnowThatThingWhere this most certainly should be a trope]]): Princia < Kate < Lily < Jody < Mrs. Arrow; Even so, ''F-Zero'' ends up ultimately subverting this trope in spirit, as ''all'' the women are traditionally feminine at their core. Even Mrs. Arrow, ''by far'' the most [[Film/{{Aliens}} Vasquez]]-esque of the ladies in terms of personality and appearance (she's highly self-confident, more enamored with the F-Zero races than most of the cast, is one of the more seasoned and brutal racers on the track, and is a shown to be a [[AmazonianBeauty muscular--yet shapely]]--woman who takes up bodybuilding) is said to be a sweet, caring, kindhearted woman with a [[{{Socialite}} classy]], [[{{Omniglot}} elegant]] [[{{Ojou}} upbringing]].

* The [[{{Superhero}} superhero]] [[{{WebSerialNovel}} web serial novel]] ''[[{{Literature/GamerGirl2016}} Gamer Girl]]'' actually features a duo called Tomboy and Girly Girl. As befitting their [[{{SomethingPerson}} aliases]], Tomboy is a loudmouthed, scruffy, baseball bat-wielding rabble-rouser while Girly Girl is an affectionate, makeup and perfume-wearing fashionista.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}'':
** May was actually a girly girl in her own arc, however when she appears in ''Diamond & Pearl'' she is this to Dawn. It's just that Dawn is more girlier than May. The contrast in their designs - sporty shorts and short hair for May compared to a skirt and long hair for Dawn - emphasise it.
** Serena is this way with her mother Grace. Grace is a spunky, short haired woman who is a famous Ryhorn racer. While she wanted Serena to become a Ryhorn racer like her, Serena ended up leaning towards the IdolSinger-esque Pokemon Performer career instead. Serena has a more feminine look than her mom as well, though she did end up with an ImportantHaircut halfway through ''X&Y''.

One episode has Carly teaching Sam how to attract a boy by acting more girly and Sam says to Carly “I wanna be more like you. You know, all soft and girly and weak”.
** Sam and her twin sister Melanie also fit this trope.
