** Akari Unryuu is occasionally derided as a RelationshipSue because she plays this trope perfectly straight, without any 'little quirks' like the aforementioned characters have. Let's make a list: long dark hair, pretty but not beautiful, loyal to her guy (indeed, she thinks his curse is more reason to love him), and carries on her family's tradition of raising ''sumo'' pigs. WordOfGod confirmed that she was created with his HappilyEverAfter in mind.

* ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'': Anri Sonohara has a passive, soft-spoken and gentle personality, although she won't let others push her around all the time. To seal the deal, she wears yukata on occasion [[spoiler: and wields a katana.]]

What's more: someone like her attacking someone like Shizuo either has tremendous guts or a death wish and she definitely isn't the latter.

* In CaptainTsubasa, Yoshiko Fujisawa fits in very well despite being just 15 years old. She's very humble, sweet, hard-working (sometimes [[GreaterNeedThanMine to her own detriment]], which is ''not'' shown as a good thing due to her StepfordSmiler traits) and well-loved by everyone. * ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'': Miu Furinji is a blonde MissFanservice, but otherwise she's a good example. She's polite and kind. She cleans and cooks for the dojo and makes sure it doesn't run out of money. In fact, the grand master mentions that they wouldn't live so well without Miu's care. So as long as no one makes her her [[ClingyJealousGirl jealous]] or [[BewareTheniceOnes angry]], she will be this to a T; her "inner iron" is not the least bit subtle.

%%* Taka in ''Film/TheLastSamurai''
to:
%%* Taka * ''Film/EquinoxFlower'': A deconstruction of this trope, or at least documenting how the idea is changing, as proper Japanese women no longer have to ask their fathers' permission to get married. All the other women in ''Film/TheLastSamurai''Hirayama's life, including his wife, his other daughter, and a friend of the family, all wind up badgering/tricking him into grudgingly approving the marriage and attending the wedding.

* ''Manga/MiraiNikki'': Tsubaki Kasugano aka the Sixth plays the part and looks like one, but [[spoiler:is a ManipulativeBitch CutePsycho, priestess of a ReligionOfEvil, ''and'' the local WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds.]] On the other hand, [[spoiler:the Tsubaki we see in ''[[AlternateUniverse Paradox]]'' and in chapter 58 of the original series is one of these to the core, with special emphasis on wisdom and selflessness. It's hinted that Paradox!Tsubaki, who has the same backstory of abuse of the original one [[ForWantOfANail save the loss of her]] TragicKeepsake, could potentially snap if the right circumstances are met.]]

That was redundant
** Unfortunately, in the ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'', Oichi is... ''[[NightmareFuel something else far creepier]]'', though she has some of its elements if it wasn't overridden with [[DarkIsNotEvil how gloomy she is]]. However, the game does have a genuine one: Maeda Toshiie's wife Matsu, described as a 'homemaker'/'perfect Japanese wife', ''very'' dedicated (and rather lovey-dopey) to Toshiie, and damn determined to defend the Maeda household with [[NaginatasAreFeminine Naginata]] at hand. Also she's an excellent cook, and her gimmick seems to be serving food to everyone, be it her husband or her soldiers or her nephew Maeda Keiji. [[SupremeChef She's an excellent cook.]]

* Oichi in her ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors''... or at least from the 2nd game forward (since in the first game she was instead a [[GenkiGirl peppy]] TokenMiniMoe) being that not only she's soft-spoken and very devoted to her husband Azai Nagamasa and his domain of Oumi, ''absolutely nothing'' will make her not take away her support to Nagamasa, not even [[UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga her 'Demon King' big bro]] who came knocking and want Nagamasa dead because of some honor-related betrayal (that she also supported). Even as Nagamasa died, she still kept the memories of him in her until her death (though thankfully she still showed care to her 'other' husband, Shibata Katsuie)

** Hinata Hyuuga. She may seem pretty weird at first but she has that very pale skin and after the time skip has long dark hair, but not only that she is also exceptionally kind, polite, soft-spoken and devoted to Naruto[[spoiler:, whom she would later end up marrying]]. The inner iron, while always present, takes a while to manifest, but when it does... '''[[SilkHidingSteel it does]]''': in the Chuunin exams she correctly guessed Neji's ''actual'' psychological problems and, once she stopped fearing him, she told him so to his face even when she knew he'd surely snap and beat her to death (and he almost did), in the Pain arc she stepped out against Pain because of her love for Naruto, even though she knew her own death was the most likely outcome, and in ''Film/Naruto7TheLast'' she [[spoiler: does her best to fight Toneri off for the sake of her little sister, reclaims said sister's stolen eyes, ''and'' not only became Naruto's girlfriend, but his BattleCouple partner.]]
