    This is early development right now. I promise I will eventually get up a proper description, but I wanted to at least get something started.

    Catwoman. That one was easy.

    • Kokonoe from Blaz Blue isn't portrayed as particularly sexy (in fact she switches between Team Mum and Mad Scientist behaviours) but her catlike features have more of a Nekomata theme than mundane cat theme (although her abilities come from actual science, rather than the Magi Tech everyone else in that world uses) and she's certainly not very cute (usually) or to be trifled with.
    • Katt (or Lin or Rinpoo depending on the translation) from Breath Of Fire 2, although she might be considered cute as well. The series as a whole usually portrays female Woren this way, since they're a Proud Warrior Race.

    Katnappe from Xiaolin Showdown tries to be this, although she mostly just comes across as cheesy.

    ...to appear sexy, dangerous, and elegant?

    Yes. She's basically trying to be Catwoman, but she's a teenage girl who's partner in crime is an Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain and a Buttmonkey.

    The alien cat-woman captain from Treasure Planet could fit, she's a daring Action Girl who takes risk, but whether or not she's "sexy" depends on who you ask.

    Even if we don't use Cute Cat Girl, I think this trope actually has something to offer TV Tropes.

    ^ Why would't we use it? Consensus in the Cat Girl TRS thread was to split it into both tropes.

    am I the only one who thinks Felicia from Darkstalkers?

    Should this trope be called Feline Eared Femme Fatale because someone might be confused by Feline Femme Fatale put any female feline who's a Femme Fatale as an example?

    If we were to go that approach, I'd rather call it Feline Eared Fatale.

    I will need to focus on my school for for the next few weeks, so I'm adding a Up For Grabs tag.

    • Juhani, from KOTOR, is a powerful Jedi warrior. She is a female Cathar, a race of cat-like aliens.

    Cathar aren't really catgirls though. They are vaguely Cat Folk.

    Why do we even have pages for cat girls with the existence of Cat Folk, Werecat, and Little Bit Beastly, Petting Zoo People and the like? With all the humanoid animal tropes I'm not convinced there are any "cat girls" that wouldn't be out of place on something broader.

    Juhani pretty much is a Cat Girl, but is a Cathar by retcon. Hmm.

    Decision was made to not split it. Discarding.
