* The ''Fanfic/SuperwomenOfEva'' series, which takes the female cast of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and gives them [[SuperFic superpowers]], allowing them to mould the destinies of themselves and the people they love by taking the fight to the Angels and the AncientConspiracy factions. Even the stories where there is only one super-heroine does a pretty good job giving the other girls [[TookALevelInBadass an additional level in Badassery]] and the ones where there is ''more'' than one usually have anybody that is not part of the aforementioned EldritchAbomination race or AncientConspiracy factions running for the hills.

* [[Franchise/TheDCU The DC Universe]] has a number of female-focussed alternate universes. Three are active at present: Earth-11 of the main DC multiverse, which is basically "Earth-GenderFlip"; the ''Toys/AmeComiGirls'' universe, based on a statue line featuring DC female characters and Gender Flipped versions of male characters in an anime-influenced style; and the ''ComicBook/DCComicsBombshells'' universe, a WeirdHistoricalWar alternate version of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII featuring versions of various female DC heroes and villains, which was derived from a series of variant covers and statues reimagining them in a 1940s-pin-up art style.

* ''Anime/ActionHeroineCheerFruits'' is about {{Tokusatsu}} stage shows, most of which feature female heroes. It's mentioned that male heroes exist, but so far none have been shown.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has just as many kickass leading ladies as there are males, if not more.
** Thessia is a literal example, being home to a race of female-looking aliens, most of whom have biotic powers or military training due to their long lifespan.
* In ''Franchise/DragonAge'', unless a female character is ''explicitly'' stated or shown to be a non-combatant, they are probably an ActionGirl. Women in general have a ''lot'' more power and respect in Thedas as compared to other HighFantasy works, largely due to the massive influence that the prophet Andraste and Her female-exclusive Chantry have had on the world. By the time ''Inquisition'' roles around, female combatants are seemingly even more common than their male counterparts.

Can also lead to lots of {{Designated Girl Fight}}s.

Fight}}s. Rather, it means that most of the people ''doing'' the fighting are girls. However, if one of the rare male fighters only finds another, equally rare, male fighter to tussle with, ''then'' the trope is in effect.



* ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' actually tries to justify this trope. Women inherently make better Claymores than men, because men are more likely to [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie become Awakened Beings]].

** Later volumes start to [[DonwplayedTrope downplay]] this trope. Newly introduced student teams tend to be more gender-balanced, and thus more action guys like Sun, Neptune, and Mercury show up, and even the PluckyComicRelief Jaune gets more competent over time. On the mentor side, Professor Oobleck initially seems to strictly be TheSmartGuy, but is actually ''very'' dangerous when the chips are down, and then there's [[CoolUncle Qrow]], who may be the most skilled huntsman around. And there's [[FrontlineGeneral General Ironwood]]. On the villainous side, the aforementioned male villain turns out to be far more dangerous in combat than he initially seemed, and is actually more than a match for the 15 year old. And then there's the deadly Adam and Tyrian. Overall, there are still more action girls than action guys, but not by too many.
