* '''Zig Zagged''': The ActionGirl, Alice, is treated badly by the men because she's very feminist. [[AllTheOtherReindeer The ladies treat her badly for the same reason too.]] A [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment of Awesome]] leads the men to treat her better, but the ladies still aren't convinced. Later, one of these ladies, Diane, must defeat the BigBad in a test to prove her {{badass}}ery. She learns that Alice defeated him with no trouble. Diane initially wants to commit suicide, but Alice convinces her to embrace her feminism. Then Alice goes into a nearby bathroom and blows herself up with a grenade. Why? Because she was actually ashamed to be a feminist.
