* Subtly deconstructed in ''Series/ParksAndRecreation''. After Pawnee's boy scout group refuses to include girls, Leslie starts her own group called the Pawnee Goddesses in order to prove that girls can be good outdoorsmen too. However in practice she ends up [[{{Hypocrite}} reinforcing the very stereotypes she's claiming to be opposing]], having her group never do any actual difficult activities and instead having them laze about, doing stereotypically feminine things like "puppy parties" or pillow fights. She also [[NotSoDifferent tries to keep boys out of the club just like the boy scout group did to girls]], and when she does let boys in, they only join because in her club they get to screw around and play instead of doing work. When she makes Ron acknowledge that "GIRLS CAN DO IT TOO" it comes off less like an empowering victory and more like a somber, KickTheDog moment where she makes Ron feel like crap, and Leslie is visibly unhappy about it afterwards.

* Subtly deconstructed in ''Series/LastManStanding''. Eve is asked by her high school's football coach to become the team's kicker after he sees her kicking skills at a contest. Rather than doing it just to show up the boys, she accepts because she thinks it will be fun. After she does well in a few games, everyone keeps praising her for being the only girl in the league and tells her how inspirational it is for women everywhere. However, Eve hates being singled out by the press and would rather have people not make a big deal of it and treat her just like the other players. It's also worth mentioning that there is never any mention of her teammates being sexist towards her. While the girls thought her boyfriend was mad about her joining and showing him up, it turns he likes having her on the team and do well and was mad about something else entirely. Eventually the pressure of representing women gets to her and her performance suffers as a result.

* In ''Film/{{Thor}}'', it's implied that Lady Sif had to pull one in order to be taken seriously as a warrior.
-->'''Thor''': And who proved wrong all who scoffed at the idea that a young maiden could be one of the fiercest warriors this realm has ever known?\\
'''Sif''': ''I'' did.\\
'''Thor''': ...true, but I supported you!

* [[TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan Anne Chan]] gets several little moments like this, usually in response to Alan or Tom claiming she can't surf, climb trees or follow a crook as well as them because she's a girl. They're both miniature [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome crowning moments of awesome]] and PlayedForLaughs at the same time.

* Quite a few eps of ''RocketPower'', with Reggie Rocket as the girl. For instance, "Major Scrummage", where she scores the winning points in a game of rugby. Justified, since she's the oldest by two years and the only one who has reached puberty.

She hits a free-throw to score the school's first point against their competition and win a bet principal Scudworth had made against their rival's principal... and then the team treats the Abe Lincoln clone as a hero (on the grounds that his stirring speech convinced all in attendance to let her shoot in the first place), leaving Joan feeling completely betrayed.
* In ''GormitiTheLordsOfNatureReturn'', Toby's boasting about being better at judo are summarily shot down by Jessica beating him by ''one'' point at the school tournament. She was quite smug about it, too...

* Subverted in an episode of ''WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' where the culprit turns out be a girl who was sabotaging the skateboarding tournament. She claims she was rejected because she's a girl (even though there is another girl there), but it turns out she was rejected because she genuinely sucks.

** {{Subverted|Trope}} in the episode where Zoey joins the male's wrestling team. All of her male opponents choose to forfeit rather than wrestle her, because if they won, [[WouldntHitAGirl they would look like a jerk for beating up a girl]]; but if they lost, [[IWasBeatenByAGirl they would look like a wimp for losing to a girl]]. It turns out that the coach only let Zoey join the team [[GenreSavvy for this exact reason]], so that he could save his best wrestler for the final match of the tournament. His plan ends up failing when Zoey goes up against a JerkJock with no hangups about fighting a girl, and [[CurbStompBattle he wipes the floor with her]].
