A Girly Girl, who happens to have some Tomboyish qualities, like a very feminine Proper Lady who displays herself as One of the Boys. Compare and contrast Tomboy with a Girly Streak.
- Kaylee from Firefly epitomizes this trope: very feminine in a lot of aspects (liking frilly dresses for one), but Wrench Wench extraordinaire.
- In an episode of That 70s Show, Jackie (normally very feminine (especially in contrast to Donna) and a cheerleader and high-maintenance rich girl who can be an Alpha Bitch) helps Red fix a car, after Eric proves inadequate.
- Delenn from Babylon 5 might deserve a mention: she's a very graceful and elegant female, displaying many positive feminine qualities. But cross her and her sense of what's right, and she's demonstrated many times that she can be tough as nails--even to the point of being willing to stand in a beam of intense radiation until she burns to death, to stand for her Religious Caste in the Minbari Civil War. This may fit the trope, but is better described as Iron Lady.
- In King of the Hill: Luanne has shown to know quite a bit about car maintenance.
