* ''Manga/DeathNote'' has the death of Naomi Misora, the cool BikerBabe {{FBI}} agent and the most badass female character on the show who was literally killed off for being too competent. [[WordOfGod The author said in an interview]] that if she hadn't been [[DroppedABridgeOnHim written out]] she would have solved the case and the manga would have ended after only three volumes.

* The two main ActionGirl characters in the South Seas Treasure Game (''Literature/DreamPark'') are the sexy Acacia and the indefatigable Mary-Martha. Both acquit themselves well, but only one of them makes it to the end of the Game, and it's not the middle-aged, 4'1" veteran with the battleax. Inverted in the second sequel, ''The California Voodoo Game.'' Mary-Em makes it out alive and with a massive experience boost, while Acacia's character suffers CharacterDeath, causing her to go through a HeroicBSOD.

One of the reasons is the belief that the femininity and sex appeal of a female character determines their usefulness as {{Love Interest|s}} or FanService or, in the most insulting cases, their reason to be in the story at all.

all. In some flicks, especially horror, this is inverted as the Vasquez lives while the MsFanservice frequently suffers DeathBySex or if there is a third girl in the cast, both the Vasquez and the MsFanservice get axed while the timid and androgynous FinalGirl makes it.



Compare BuryYourGays, FauxActionGirl, FinalGirl (the weakest and most innocent girl is the only one to live), BlackDudeDiesFirst, TheWorfEffect, DeathByPragmatism and GirlyBruiser (the most feminine female survives because she can kick ass in addition to being feminine). Overlaps with TheWorldsExpertOnGettingKilled, where the most qualified person in the whole cast, male or female, is killed early on and often with ease.

* ''Series/RobinHood'': had two {{action girl}}s, one DarkActionGirl and one FauxActionGirl. One ActionGirl is [[WomenInRefrigerators murdered]], the second is PutOnABus (after undergoing {{Chickification}}), the DarkActionGirl is blown up, and the FauxActionGirl is the only one who makes it to the end of the series thanks to the fact that the male cast has all [[TheLoad but carried her through on their backs]].
