* If a ''Film/TronLegacy'' fic ''doesn't'' kill off [[SequelNonEntity Yori]], chances are, they'll end up doing this. Justified as Clu's rule is even nastier than Master Control, that she already fought against Master Control as a [[AcePilot pilot]] and [[TheEngineer saboteur]], and that someone has to be kicking ass and taking names for the Users with her bondmate out of the picture.

* ''{{Disney/Tangled}}'' makes Rapunzel a more pro-active character, who knocks out the male lead with a frying pan as soon as he sneaks into her tower. She also uses her hair itself as a weapon numerous times. Like Esmerelda, this is downplayed - as Rapunzel's strength lies in her kindness and compassion for others.

* While Irene Adler has [[BreakoutVillain gotten an expanded role]] in ''Franchise/SherlockHolmes'' adaptations for a long while, in the 2009 film ''Film/SherlockHolmes'', she becomes a definite ActionGirl, which is showcased in a MuggingTheMonster scene. This probably has to do with the fact that the film also emphasizes Holmes and Watson's (canonical) fighting prowess.

In the sequel, Mary seems like she's getting this treatment as well - as she threatens an assailant with a gun. But she's not in the thick of battle for the rest of the movie (though she does prove integral in the climax).

** Ditto for Red's grandmother. Far from being eaten by a wolf, this one stands guard all night with a crossbow and is able to shoot a gun out of someone's hand when her granddaughter is threatened. NeverMessWithGrannyIndeed.

* In the ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'', Susan Storm was originally TheChick of the team with a near useless power of invisibility. Creator/StanLee and Creator/JackKirby took partial steps to fix that early on giving her force field projecting powers. However, it was Creator/JohnByrne who really powered her up by having her [[SwissArmySuperpower nifty new ways of using her powers]] and learning to get aggressive enough to really use them well. Today, she is now considered one of the most powerful superheroes of the ''Franchise/MarvelUniverse'' and even the character of ''SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom'' underestimates her at his peril.

* Marian, the ladyfriend of the Lee brothers from the ''VideoGame/DoubleDragon'' video games who gets sucker-punched and carried off in the original arcade game, became a policewoman in the comic and animated adaptation of the series and a female gang leader (who just happens to be the daughter of a policeman) in the [[Film/DoubleDragon movie]]. The NeoGeo fighting game version influenced by the film followed suit and made her into one of the playable fighters in the game who can stand on her own against the likes of Abobo, Burnov and even the Lee Brothers themselves.
