* ''WesternAnimation/AlphaAndOmega'': Kate the alpha wolf.
* ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'': Audrey Ramirez (the mechanic) and Kidagakash Nedakh (the Atlantean princess).
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Balto}}'': Jenna is willing to fight a furious bear far larger than she is and has no qualms with standing up to [[GloryHound Steel]], something many of the male dogs in the film are too afraid to do. Sadly for the fans, she ends up fading into the background in the other two films. Her daughter Aleu in the second movie also gets to be badass, but unfortunately she quickly falls into FauxActionGirl territory.

* ''Disney/{{Bolt}}'' has Penny (the onscreen version, anyway), particularly in the opening. Mittens has her moments as well.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife'':
** Maria Posada. When Manolo and Joaquin start a swordfight over her, she picks up a sword and disarms them both in a single move. And that's before the bandits show up. During her travels, she has learned fencing and kung-fu.
