Mechanical inclinations have, for various reasons, traditionally been forte of men. The Wrench Wench is a girl who sets out to change all that. This can sometimes extend to pure electronic devices, but a Wrench Wench is more likely to be found with a blowtorch and ratchet set. She will always be confident about her own work, but because she's technically an enormous {{geek}} she sometimes has trouble with other things. She might also have MachineEmpathy and can diagnose problems just by listening to the motor. She has been known to be CuriousAsAMonkey in the presence of new and interesting machines -- or ConstantlyCurious, if inspection is impossible. Usually too self confident to ever need a BeautifulAllAlong plot, but very likely to have at least one SheCleansUpNicely moment even though she's often an UnkemptBeauty anyway. Tick her off and a WrenchWhack may be in the offing.

Indentation, again
* Sunny from ''Videogame/{{Evolve}}'' is one of these, as well as an ActionGirl. She built shield drones from old mining equipment, has the capability to build an FTL drive onto a ship if given the right supplies, and carries a mini-nuke grenade launcher. ** Lennox is one as well. Besides designing the mining facilities of Shear and a mobile space station, she built her [[PoweredArmor Thunderchild suit]] in three days.

* From the FanFic/TriptychContinuum, we have Ratchette. She runs Ponyville's fixit shop, doing minor to moderate repairs on [[{{Magitek}} devices and conveniences]] -- which is all she's generally capable of: adjustments on the physical elements can be managed, but fixing the spells themselves is impossible for a ''pegasus''. Her mark seems to give her the (occasional) ability to diagnosis problems on contact -- something she can't bring herself to tell anypony about -- and she does clean up rather nicely, although one angry non-customer describes her as needing five baths just to reach "dirty". Her capabilities and limitations are given some exploration in [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/217859/mechanical-aptitude Mechanical Aptitude]].
