[[caption-width-right:315:[-[[WildlifeCommentarySpoof And here we see a pack of the common fangirl closing in on their prey, the rare celebrity.]]-] ]]

The ''stereotypical'' fangirl is a girl who loves a story/series for one or more of the male characters. They have existed for longer than you may think: the Creator/DavidDuchovny EstrogenBrigade was a ''terrifying'' force on ''Series/TheXFiles''' group on Website/{{Usenet}}. The term has since widened beyond that stereotype to include girls who are merely fans of something or other.

It is not always a pejorative term but it can be among people who don't "get" a particular fandom. Most folks today use the term to mean nothing more than a female {{nerd}}. Someone describing herself as a fangirl is usually expressing an enthusiasm for the subject.

If the fangirl is a fan of a villain, see MonsterFangirl.

!!Fictional Examples


[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/{{Bakuon}}'': Rin is a Suzuki fangirl, to the point that she has trouble riding bikes from other brands. [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood She even has a Suzuki mark in her left ass cheek, but that's entirely for other reason]].
* ''Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ'': Momoko (Blossom) has a triple dose of this:
## Food (especially sweets),
## Sentai and other heroes (Yeah, not so much JumpedAtTheCall as [[TheGlomp Glomped The Call]] [[AndCallHimGeorge And Never Let Go]]), an obsession she shares with her little sister, and
## Damn near every cute boy in the Tokyo area.
* Mendou in ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' had a formal organization of fangirls following his every move, and ready to punish Ataru for any perceived infraction against him.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Gary Oak has his very own cheerleading section, who's only purpose is to accompany him on his Pokemon journey and cheer about how great he is... and [[RunningGag "occasionally"]] mention that [[DudeWheresMyRespect Ash sucks compared to him.]]
* Renge in ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' is a very educated FanGirl. Of course she spends more time criticizing and advising the members of the Club than fangirling them, but when she ''fangirls'' she does it '''big'''.
* Minto from ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'' is a closet fangirl of model and actress Fujiwara Zakuro. Removes the "closet" ([[SchoolgirlLesbians pun not intended, but strangely appropriate]]) after Zakuro joins the team.
** The lead character, Ichigo, begins the series as a fringe member of her eventual love interest's InstantFanclub (he's the KendoTeamCaptain). Both she and Minto grow to see their respective objects of affection as people rather than ideals.
* Subaru of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' is the titular character's personal fangirl. Half of her spells are named after Nanoha's and in the [[AllThereInTheManual supplementary manga chapters set before the third season]], she carries around a magazine clipping of Nanoha on her person at all times. It may have something to do with the small fact that Nanoha saved her life when she was 11...
* Motomiya Jun of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' is a living embodiment of this trope, going so far as to chase down the [[ChickMagnet cool, aloof, and completely uninterested]] Ishida Yamato whenever within sight. Once it becomes clear that he's interested in Sora, she moves onto Jou's older brother. [[AllThereInTheManual An audio drama]] seems to imply that they eventually have some kind of relationship: she visits him on Valentine's Day and gets introduced to his parents.
* ''Manga/MakenKi'': Uruchi's admiration for Haruko goes beyond fangirling, she openly ''[[EvenTheGirlsWantHer fan]]''''[[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c042/18.html -GASMS]]'' over her. Though Haruko has no clue that her kohai [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c044/5.html wants to get into her pants.]]
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** Sakura and Ino spend the majority of Part I fangirling over [[TheRival Sasuke Uchiha]], though [[ByronicHero Sasuke]] was more turned off by it than anything. Thankfully they [[CharacterDevelopment get better and stop]].
** In Part II, which takes place after a three-year TimeSkip, there's Karin and Shiho, both of whom [[MoodSwinger alternate]] between calm and level-headed [[HotScientist scientist]]-types to squealing fangirls for Sasuke and Shikamaru, respectively.
* An, Tomoka, and Sakuno from ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'', each girl in her different ways.
* In ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'', Usagi and most of her friends are fangirls of Aino Minako, an IdolSinger who also turns out to be Sailor Venus.
%%** Also happens in the anime with the Starlights; particularly Ami, which shocks everyone.
%%** Also in the anime, Minako turns out to be a fangirl of an idol singer--an important plot point in the end.
* Ohno, Ogiue, and Ohno's friends Angela and Sue from ''Manga/{{Genshiken}}'', though they're more realistic than most portrayals of fangirls (aside from Ohno and Angela's [[{{Fanservice}} exaggerated proportions]]).
* In her earliest appearances, Misato-chan seems to exist solely to fangirl Manga/{{Nana}} and the Black Stones, to the point of ignoring school, moving in with them to act as a fetch-and-carry girl, and even [[spoiler:using a fake name to stump Yasu's attempted background check]].
* Konata Izumi from ''Manga/LuckyStar'' is a rare example of a different type of fangirl. She is not interested in shipping or attractive male fictional characters. She has some of the characteristics of a typical male Otaku, watching tons of anime, addicted to video games, and likes to cosplay. Some of this may be influenced by her father, who is also an otaku.
** Hiyori Tamura, with her YuriFan and {{doujinshi}} drawing tendencies, is a more traditional example of this trope.
* [[ClassRepresentative Emily Sevensheep]] of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' is a massive Nagi fangirl. In fact, many females in the Magic World are Nagi fangirls. There's a reason why being among the first 100 to join the official Nagi fanclub is considered a special thing. Hell, being in the first ''five digits'' is considered a big deal.
** Ayaka runs the line between being a Negi fangirl and being a paedophile. Most of the class thinks its the second.
* Kallen is Zero's biggest fangirl throughout most of ''Anime/CodeGeass'', complete with a BodyguardCrush when Lelouch sees the true value of her devotion and puts her in charge of his personal defense.
** Kaguya's an even bigger example.
* Yumi from ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' gathers quite an extensive group of fan girls in the course of the series. She is the undisputable center of attention during the tea party she and Yoshino organize to find a suitable soer--much to Yoshino's chagrin.
* Kanade from ''Anime/CandyBoy'' has her own personal fan girl in Sakuya. She doesn't seem too happy about most of the time, but she also doesn't really try to get rid of her, turning poor Sakuya into a HopelessSuitor.
* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'', Meer Campbell was so much of a fangirl for Lacus Clyne she willingly became her BodyDouble and adopted her personality and, to a degree, her role.
* Tomoyo is Sakura's fangirl in ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'', in addition to [[SchoolgirlLesbians loving]] [[SingleTargetSexuality her]] in other ways. Her obsession with filming all of Sakura's exploits even disturbs Sakura on occasion, and in an early episode, she gives an impromptu manifesto on Sakura's varied awesomeness to a boy who had just complimented Sakura on her athletic skill.
* Mei Chan fangirls Ed briefly in ''Manga/FullMetalAlchemist'' until she meets him and sees how short he is. She then [[HeroicBSOD BSODs]] briefly before bawling him out for "toying with her heart", and then moves her affections to Al, who is suitably tall, being a suit of armor. No pun intended.
* In ''Manga/KamichamaKarin'', [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Kazune]] and [[NewTransferStudent Michiru]] ("Micchi") have ''[[SeriousBusiness competing fanclubs]]'', the Kazune-Z and Michirians. They argued over who should play the good prince and bad prince in the SchoolPlay, before the Kazune-Z eventually decided that an evil Kazune would be "[[EvilIsSexy sinfully delicious]]". [[IdolSinger Jin]] also has many, some of whom get downright violent.
* Nozomi of ''Anime/ChancePopSession'' is a major Reika fangirl. The reason she joins the Akiba music school in the first place is for the chance to meet Reika. Even after having success as part of R-3, she still keeps her fangirl status.
* In ''Anime/ProjectAKo'', C-ko has been A-ko's fangirl ever since A-ko rescued her from the wolf that was about to attack her.
* Surprisingly, Yuki Nagato in the spin-off ''The Melancholy of Manga/HaruhiChan'' comes the closest ever to showing any emotion (thus far) by becoming the fangirl of an unnamed anime/game series.
* There's a couple of {{loony fan}}girls played for laughs in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack''. This is due to the fact that the protagonist is a weapons-grade ChickMagnet; the fangirl in the OVA was also [[BunnyEarsLawyer smart enough to recognize]] that the cute guy was the one who had saved her the other day (even if her logic was a bit...[[FemaleGaze unique]]), leading to outright StalkerWithACrush behavior.
* Excel of ''Manga/ExcelSaga'' is willing to take a bullet for her leader, Il Palazzo. Several bullets, in fact. And an antitank rocket. All fired by him.
* Tomoe Amamiya of ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'', Kotetsu's classmate back in high school, was a giant {{superhero}} fangirl. [[spoiler:Naturally, she ended up marrying one]].
* In ''Manga/BlackButler'', Grell personifies MANY of the fan's emotions towards a certain demonic butler...
* Reika in ''Manga/{{Gantz}}'' is a Kurono fangirl and is called [[LampShadeHanging Kurono's #1 Fan]] by Gantz.
* In ''LightNovel/ThePetGirlOfSakurasou'', Sorata's little sister Yuuko became a fan of [[IdiotSavant Mashiro]] after learning the latter is the author of her favorite manga, ''Nanohana-sou''.
* In ''Manga/YuGiOh'': Vivian Wong is a Yugi and Kaiba fangirl. She even kidnaps Yugi's grandpa, just because to get a date with our hero.
* In ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', Rei Saotome (Blair Flannigan) was first introduced as a crazy Ryo Marufuji (Zane Truesdale) fangirl. Then, she turns into a Judai Yuki (Jaden Yuki) fangirl. She was also a Jun Manjoume (Chazz Princeton) fangirl for a minute, but then she remembers Judai. She's still hitting on Judai.
* In ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'', Jack has Carly, Mikage/Mina and Stephanie. The three of them don't like each other.
* In ''Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure'', [[TheHeroine Mana Aida]] is a fangirl to the IdolSinger [[TheLancer Makoto "MakoP" Kenzaki]]. One wonders who Mana loves the most, [=MakoP=], [[ChildhoodFriends Rikka]], or [[FoeYay Regina]].
* ''Anime/DevilHunterYohko'': [[CuteClumsyGirl Asuza]]'s admiration for Yohko knows no bounds and she aspires to become just like her. So when she saw Chikgako's [[WhoYouGonnaCall ad in the paper]], she assumed Yohko was looking for an apprentice and [[JumpedAtTheCall quite literally showed up on her doorstep to accept the job offer]].
* Akane of ''Manga/CastleTownDandelion'' is a fangirl of [[IdolSinger Sacchan]]. In chapter 20/Episode 7B, she even drops her ShrinkingViolet shell to invade the backstage of a concert just to see Sacchan (after Hikari refused her request as the latter doesn't want people to know she is Royalty).
* Most of the female characters in ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' are fangirls towards a specific male figure skater or male skaters in general (even the six-year-old Nishigori triplets!). The only exceptions are Hiroko (who isn't familiar with the figure skating world) and those who are already figure skaters themselves like Mila and Sara.


[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Harley Quinn in all her appearances in Franchise/{{Batman}}.
** This happens from time to time with the Bat-Family. Robin moved Spoiler to costumed adventuring (she later became an [[AscendedFanboy Ascended Fangirl]]), Oracle has a new one in ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey named Misfit, and back when she started being Batgirl could have been considered one herself.
* Molly Hayes of ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' used to be a major ComicBook/XMen fangirl particularly when it came to Wolverine. Although once he showed up with ComicBook/IronMan and ComicBook/CaptainAmerica (who had previously sent her to a foster home she ran away from) to arrest her friend Cloak, she decided he was a lot less cool in person.
* A minor villainess named Virtuoso that appeared in the ''ComicBook/SecretSix'' series is a ''huge'' Fangirl of the deceased [[MusicalAssassin Fiddler]] and is the current holder of his violin. When Fiddler appeared in front of her as a [[ComicBook/BlackestNight Black Lantern]], he could see that she was brimming with love. She claimed to be his biggest fan, gushed about his past work, and even offered to return his original violin.
* [[ComicBook/YoungAvengers Coat-Of-Arms of the Young Masters]] is a super-villain fangirl. When she meets Norman Osborn for the first time, she actually ''{{squee}}s''.
* ''ComicBook/CaptainBritainAndMI13'' has Faiza Hussain, a civilian doctor who's a big fan of superheroes, particularly British ones. She [[AscendedFangirl eventually ends up with superpowers herself]] ''and'' a superhero for a boyfriend.
-->'''Pete Wisdom:''' So you're into cricket?\\
'''Faiza:''' It's my other fandom.\\
'''Pete Wisdom:''' You're calling British Occult Intelligence and the S.A.S. a ''"fandom"''?
* Faiza was followed in the Marvel Universe by the rather similar Kamala Khan, the current [[ComicBook/MsMarvel2014 Ms. Marvel]], who before being activated as an Inhuman was a fangirl of the Avengers to the point of writing in-universe RealPersonFic about them.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''Fanfic/TheOfficialFanfictionUniversityOfMiddleEarth'' has lots of them as students. They're brought there to get over it.
* ''FanFic/BecomingPonies'' introduces us to the trio of Jacqueline, Linda, and Ginny, as well as Harold. They follow Pinkie's counterpart around.
* ''Fanfic/FateRevelationOnline'' has Silica being a fangirl of Shirou, the SixthRanger.
* Fans have theorized that [=GoGo=] Tomago from ''Disney/BigHero6'' is a mild ComicBook/CaptainAmerica fangirl due to her noble personality and natural ability to throw flat circular objects.
* In ''Fanfic/HopToIt'', Rabbit meets another American girl in Paris named Colleen who was a fan of her superhero persona when they both still lived in Calfiornia. Colleen gets akumatised after getting angry over a Ladyblog video attacking Rabbit, and proclaims herself Rabbit's sidekick Cottontail. Hilariously, Cottontail and Colleen's reactions to meeting Rabbit are almost the same:
-->'''Cottontail:''' ''[after Rabbit shows up at the observatory]'' Rabbit! Omigosh omigosh omigosh! You're here! I knew you would be able to find me! I knew it! Ahhhhhh! I can't believe this is happening! This is the greatest--THE greatest thing that has ever happened to me, ever!\\\
'''Colleen:''' ''[after being freed from her akuma]'' Rabbit! Omigosh omigosh omigosh! Ahhhhhh! I can’t believe this is happening!\\
'''Rabbit:''' I can.
* ''FanFic/MegaManDefenderOfTheHumanRace'' has Klainka Cossack, who is a huge fan of Mega Man.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9495178/1/Return-of-the-Hero Return of the Hero]]'', [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Rosa]] is a HUGE fan of May, to the point where she humiliates herself {{Squeeing}} over eating in the same restaurant as her idol.
* ''FanFic/TheSomewhatCrackedMindOfUchihaItachi'': Samehada ''hates'' them, which is a problem because most female Academy students were fan girls. Sakura and Ino even originally joined the summer camp as fan girls of Sasuke, only to break out of that mindset as they came to know Sasuke as a person along with being influenced to focus on their ninja careers more.
* ''FanFic/YetAgain'': Fan girls are a great source of humor in this fic. Along with being both Scabbard's BerserkButton and greatest fear, they are the bane of Sasuke's existence. He faints at the idea of them ever learning the shadow clone jutsu, and both him and Itachi are utterly terrified of their horrific, YaoiFangirl evolution. During the TimeSkip, Sasuke eventually had to resort to wearing a mask a la Kakashi-style; the last time he took it off, there was a massive fan girl ''riot'' outside his home.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' had Mia and Tia, the two little convertibles. After the race in the film's beginning, they [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar "flash" their "headlights"]] at him. They later appear repainted light blue when their adoration has shifted to Chick Hicks.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* An OlderThanTheyThink example as Marcia from the film ''Film/ItsLoveImAfter'' (1937) is a big fan of a Shakespearean actor, Basil, and will stop at nothing to get him to marry her.
* In ''Film/GalaxyQuest'', a fangirl at a convention faints upon seeing Jason and Gwen kiss.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Romilda Vane and her posse. Complete with [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale magical date rape drugs.]]
* Prudence in ''Literature/DontCallMeIshmael'' is a fangirl of Music/TheBeatles. She knows every Beatles song ever recorded and can play most of them on three different instruments. She is named after their song 'Dear Prudence'. Her brother comments that she even looks like one of them.
* In the ''Literature/VillageTales'' series, the Duke's teenaged niece Hetty (Henrietta Maria) has but two interests. The [[AllGirlsLikePonies non-equine one]] is her being a massive [[Music/OneDirection One Direction]] {{Fangirl}}. And she regards some of the locals at home as being near-avatars thereof with a decade's maturation: which is why she's a ShipperOnDeck for the Rector and the Deputy Headmaster in the Woolfonts (she is after all a lampshaded InUniverse Ziam shipper). It's become an InUniverse RunningGag.
* ''Literature/{{Nightside}}'': Some of the lesser Beings on the Street of the Gods don't really have "religions" so much as "fandoms", and one of the Beings [[spoiler: whom Lilith destroys personally]] was revered entirely by young teenage girls.
* Miranda Duke, from ''Literature/EighteenDaysToGraduation'', is obsessed with Music/SidVicious. And punk rock in general...

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/TheWestWing'''s Josh Lyman has in-show fangirls ("The Lyman Hos" and those from lemonlyman.com). A bit of TruthInTelevision, as [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed he's pretty much]] [[JerkassStu Rahm]] [[MemeticBadass Emanuel]].
** Although it is also a little bit of Aaron Sorkin's experiences with commenting on Website/TelevisionWithoutPity.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' added an in-show fangirl Becky Rosen, who meets Sam and Dean in the first episode of season 5 and in the 9th episode of season 5, is a crazed fangirl who epitomizes the fangirl role as she can't seem to contain her excitement or stop touching Sam. And in one episode she even [[spoiler: gave him a love potion, married him while he had it in him, took his pants, tied him to a bed, and almost went as far to sell her soul for more of the drug.]]
** And writing creepy Wincest [[RealLifeWritesThePlot fanfiction]]
* In ''Series/{{Castle}}'', Detective Kate Beckett is a devoted fan of the novels of Richard Castle, and has been since before she met him. Since after meeting him he has exasperated and infuriated her in equal measure by tagging along on her investigations, she would rather die than have him find out. As such, she's something of an aversion in that she manages to restrain any squeeing urges she might have remarkably well; this is primarily to avoid giving Castle the satisfaction, however, and they have been in danger of slipping out on occasion. It's all for naught, however, since Castle knows full well that she's a fangirl anyway and eagerly teases / flirts with her based on it regardless ([[{{UST}} not that he needs the excuse]]).
** Some years ago, Kate was also a serious fan of a sci-fi show that was canceled after one season. She even used to go to conventions and do cos-play. The whole episode was also a hilarious meta-nod to ''Series/{{Firefly}}''.
* The webshow within a show of ''Series/ICarly'' has an obsessed and annoying fangirl named Mandy.
** '''[[AxCrazy NORA]]'''
* In ''Series/{{Leverage}}'', after Eliot plays the guitar once in public he gains a shocking amount of fangirls - in one scene they recognize him on the street and chase after him en masse. Later in the episode, Hardison spreads a rumor online, causing the fangirls to attack a car that they believe Eliot is in.
* In the show ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm'', specifically the episode ''I Love Lothor'', Lothor stars in a tv show ala ''I Love Lucy'', which sways the minds of anyone who watches the show to fall in fangirl love with him through subliminal signals, instantly creating an army of fangirls who swarm the studio with homemade signs and attack anyone who dares say anything against Lothor.
* Penelope of ''Series/TheAmandaShow'', who's obsessed with Amanda (and is played by Amanda).
* Goes back a long way further than the Creator/DavidDuchovny EstrogenBrigade. Seventies cop show ''StarskyAndHutch'' saw its own Estrogen Brigade volunteering in the devoted service of the two titular actors, most noticeably David "Hutch" Soul. Soul was propelled into a lucrative second career as a crooning pop star on the back of the series, with a long string of chart hits, lapped up by his adoring and swooning fan base. Who even now, in their fifties, still go to his gigs.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has presented us with a number of examples. Recent ones include:
** Osgood (to the extent that she actually ''cosplays as the the Doctor'').
** O'Donnell ("Under the Lake" and "Before the Flood") who literally has a squee moment when she first meets the Doctor and displays detailed knowledge of his exploits.
** Generally speaking, the Doctor's companions do not come off as "fangirls" or "hero-worshippers", but Clara Oswald has exhibited these tendencies from time to time, such as with Robin Hood in "Robot of Sherwood", Jane Austen, and even the Doctor himself.

* First emerged in Western culture with stereotypical female responses to Music/FrankSinatra and Music/TheBeatles.
* Music/DieArzte parodied the fandom of German-language rock (not to be confused with KrautRock) in their song "Kleines Deutschrockgirl".

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'':
** Consummate geek Jason Fox loved the first two ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' movies. ''Return of the King'' was less enjoyable; the difference being that his teen sister Paige was now an Orlando Bloom fangirl.
--->'''Paige:''' I hope Orlando is in every shot of this movie! Please, please, please, let Orlando be in every shot! You read ''Return of the King'', Jason -- does Tolkien mention Orlando Bloom a lot? Wait, don't tell me! I want to be surprised!\\
'''Jason:''' ''[turns to someone off-panel]'' You, with the orc arrows -- please shoot me.
** [[http://www.foxtrot.com/2009/12/best-gift-ever/ A blog post]] eventually reveals that this is based on Bill Amend's wife's real-life fangirlism.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* PlayedForDrama after The Crush Gals after they had been kicked out of Wrestling/AllJapanWomensProWrestling for being too old. Chigusa Nagayo formed GAEA in response, a haven for all the "old" wrestlers but also admitted several aspiring wrestlers who had been fans of the Crush Gals. Wrestling/LionessAsuka, Nagayo's partner, didn't like that and formed Super Star Unit for the purpose of taking over the company and putting out all the young ones who had been her fans.
* [[Wrestling/{{Melina}} Kyra]] was one to Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr, following in his footsteps by going down to Tijuana's WWA. However, when she finally caught up to Rey Mysterio he was the opponent of her boyfriend [[Wrestling/JohnMorrison Johnny Nitro]], so he had to go down.
* Payton Banks, who debuted for Wrestling/{{TNA}} in the crowd cheering on Wrestling/BobbyRoode, and hated his official valet Traci Brooks. Banks would end up looking more and more like Ms Brooks after Roode fired her and hired Banks as her replacement, but that was seemingly part of her desire to please Roode.
* Wrestling/SaraDelRey to Wrestling/AjaKong. She considered working for Kong's ARSION the highlight of her career(up to that point) and got to wrestle Kong in Wrestling/{{Chikara}}. Also of Wrestling/MickieJames. She rekindled an old rivalry with Madison Rayne in Remix Pro over Rayne breaking James's arm in TNA.
* Wrestling/BlackRose to Bronco #1. It's one thing to support a managerial client. It's another when you've left WWC for its biggest rival but keep buying tickets to shows to cheer him on. Also, unsurprisingly, to Wrestling/BruiserBrody. Surprisingly to Wrestling/IvelisseVelez, who she had been wrestling longer than, had been beaten down by several times and been described by as "most annoying". However, when Taylor Made [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown tried to cave Rose's skull in with a prolonged brass knuckle assault]], [[EvenEvilHasStandards even Velez]], who had just given an ItsAllAboutMe speech earlier in the night, found it excessive and [[SympathyForTheHero was the only wrestler in SHINE to do something about it]].
* Sassy Stephie, who can be seen in such enterprises as Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} and Wrestling/{{WSU}}, is a really obvious one to Wrestling/SherriMartel, frequently referencing her in makeup, face paint and outfits.
* Sara Del Rey had her own fan girls in Saturyne and [[Wrestling/{{Rosemary}} Courtney Rush]], the latter being the only wrestler who wanted to be Del Rey's friend in SHIMMER after she actively alienated the entire roster, in spite of Del Rey's repeated attempts to make her piss off. And like any proud fan girl, Rush was knowledgeable enough about the subject to successfully con Del Rey into being her TagTeam partner!
* Wrestling/TheBeautifulPeople, fan girls to Sarah Palin's husband ([[Wrestling/BillyGunn Cute Kip]] being the exception). Wrestling/TaylorWilde, Wrestling/DaffneyUnger and Roxxi Laveaux took advantage of this to prank founding members Wrestling/AngelinaLove and Wrestling/VelvetSky.
* Jennifer Blake of Las Gringas Locas became one of The International Home Wrecking Crew after meeting Radiant Rain(aka Payton Banks), a fellow member of the larger stables La Legion Extrajera and La Sociedad. Unfortunately for her, the only woman in Wrestling/{{AAA}} Rain seemed to truly like was Sexy Star, so Blake never officially joined the crew.
* [[Wrestling/{{Paige}} Britani Knight]] was another Home Wrecking Crew fan girl, in her case the catalyst being "Coventry's Loudest" Jetta. When a heckling fan called her a "Jetta wannabe", Knight said "[[InsultBackfire thank you]]"!
* Another Wrestling/{{TNA}} example was when Orlando Jordan's valet, Brittany, who turned out to be a fangirl of Wrestling/MadisonRayne. She started trying to follow Wrestling/GailKim when Rayne was slow to accept her, and even used "eat defeat", but it became clear this was just to pass time until Rayne was available.
* [=LuFisto=] to Ayako Hamada. She considered it a dream come true when she got to wrestle Hamada in nCw's spinoff Femme Fatales promotion. Also to [[Wrestling/CarleneMoore Jazz]]. When Jazz taunted [=LuFisto=] about how much less [=LuFisto=] had accomplished compared to her [=LuFisto=] said that why she liked her.[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' has, once you win a specific mini-game, three [[{{Squee}} squeeing]] fangirls who will follow Link as if he were a rockstar no matter where in the city he goes.
* ''VideoGame/OsuTatakaeOuendan 2'' has a scenario where the player cheers on a group of three middle-aged {{Fangirl}}s trying to save their [[DistressedDude kidnapped idol]].
* ''VideoGame/BetrayalAtKrondor'' has the resident stoic badass Gorath run into a "an admirer" who's immediately all over him, causing him to do what anyone would do - ''flee''.
* It's hard to tell if the fangirls in the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' prequel ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'' are a show of affection or not. They obsess over the four First Class [=SOLDIERs=] in the game - making fanclubs, sending e-mails about insipid details, and even arguing amongst themselves - just as their real life counter-parts do. There is even a side-quest that involves helping them which directly influences the final number of members in Zack's own fanclub.
* Morgan [=LeFlay=], Mighty Bounty Hunter(TM), from ''VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland'', is a rabid (and the only) Guybrush Threepwood, Mighty Pirate(TM), fangirl.
* In ''VideoGame/TheLastStory'' after a sidequest you'll get a few of them, with a fanclub...
* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'': Amy combines this trope with StalkerWithACrush and [[HyperspaceMallet a big ass hammer.]] She thinks Sonic is the coolest thing ever and is bound and determined to make him her boyfriend, even if she has to drag him kicking and screaming. Problem is, she has to ''[[SuperSpeed catch him]]'' first.
* ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Street Fighter Alpha 2]]'': Sakura is [[TheProtagonist Ryu's]] no.1 fan and self-appointed apprentice. Going so far as to emulate his fighting style, including wearing a headband identical to his own. When she finally caught up to him and asked Ryu to train her, he refused, citing he was still in the midst of his own training. However, he didn't leave her empty-handed. Ryu gave her his old wrist guards as a parting gift and told her to seek him out again once she had gained true strength and found her reason to fight. Sakura has never taken them off since.
* ''[[VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo Advanced V.G. II]]'' plays the trope straight and for laughs with Tamao's [[HeroWorshipper hero worship]] of [[TheProtagonist Yuka.]] Tamao sees Yuka as her role model, who she affectionately refers to [[CoolBigSis as "sempai"]], and entered the VG Tournament so she could meet her. The cutscene preceding her match with Yuuki even shows that Tamao [[FunnyMoments literally has a Yuka T-shirt, a ballcap and jersey with Yuka's logo]], and fan posters of her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1-gCrAwNZc (seen at 0:32-0:43)!]]
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': "Good to finally meet you Commander Shepard. Kasumi Goto. I'm a fan." Since the quote is not quite enough to show Kasumi's fangirlishness, she will keep shipping you with other teammates (especially Tali) and discuss your date with Kelly (though not for very long, due to the way her "dialogue" is written).
* In ''VideoGame/{{Solatorobo}}'', if Red becomes a prize fighter, he'll get a fangirl named Toffee who almost confesses love to him before finding out that he's not the independent badass she thought he was. She later gets over it and starts crushing on him again -- but by this point, she's made a name for herself and the move upsets her fan''boys''.
* ''VideoGame/SuikodenIII'' has two fangirls, Cecile and Alanis, of [[LadyOfWar Chris Lightfellow]]. Both want to be just like her, and Cecile is well on her way, but Alanis's talents [[SquishyWizard lie in other areas]].
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', [[LadyOfWar Cassandra]], of all people, is revealed to be a hopeless fangirl of Varric's novels, especially of ''[[ShowWithinAShow Swords & Shields]]'', a rather smutty series that Varric considers his greatest failure as a writer. She started reading them after his autobiographic ''Tale of the Champion'' -- [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial ostensibly in hopes of finding more clues to Hawke's whereabouts]]. When truth comes to light, Cassandra first goes in full {{tsun|dere}}tsun mode about her GuiltyPleasures, and then starts to pester Varric about him making her favorite characters' life into utter hell. She also turns out to be one to Hawke, asking Varric if Hawke ever gives autographs and wondering if s/he'd be willing to sign her copy of ''Tale of the Champion''. A DLC later shows her to be a fangirl of Varric in general, as when he gets around to writing memoirs about the inquisition, her reaction to finding out he wrote her as tearfully begging his forgiveness is to {{Squee}} about having been included in his book.

* Rena of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' goes nuts over anything she thinks is cute (whether or not it actually ''is'' cute), always announcing her intention to [[ImTakingHerHomeWithMe take said object of her affection home]]. In ''Kai'', the perpetually stoned-looking Takano [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=JbgxnQ5O5CQ reveals her terrifying fangirl side]] over the dark legends of Oyashiro-sama.
* Chris in ''VisualNovel/MajiDeWatashiNiKoiShinasai'' is a huge JidaiGeki fan, and in particularly loves the [[ShowWithinAShow Show Within A Game]] Yamato-maru Nikki series, a common interest she shares with Yamato. Yamato himself can also be described as a ''hermit crab'' fanboy.
* Played for laughs in ''VisualNovel/HalloweenOtome'' when fangirls coo about [[spoiler: Tyger, Mr. Wolf’s stage name]] without knowing that he’s nearby.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In Webcomic/{{Blitzcrafter}}, Meredith mentions writing lesbian incest fanfiction. For what, we're not sure. She's also a YuriFan.
* In ''Webcomic/ErrantStory'', Misa to Sara, improbably enough (at least having the 1400-year-old immortal be the fangirl to the young woman barely out of her teens seems to fit the "improbable" category).
* ''Webcomic/FontesRants'': A recurring character is an unnamed fangirl who appeared in the very first strip obsessing over ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}''.
* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' Tarvek is flabbergasted to learn that Captain Hawkins and her crew are fans of the incredibly violent Bangladesh [=DuPree=]. Gil reveals that he runs into people who are fans of her surprisingly often.
* [[spoiler: Kanaya]] is this towards [[spoiler: Rose]] in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', having [[spoiler: read her walkthrough]]. Suffered a mild case of WartsAndAll after actually chatting, but is apparently getting over it very quickly now.
** Also WV, after [[spoiler: leading the Prospitians and Dersites]] to battle, he has many admirers, most of them female pawns from both sides.
** On [[spoiler: Scratched Earth]], Jane is Betty Crocker's No.1 Fangirl and heiress to the company. Oddly enough, her Beta counterpart, [[spoiler: Nanna, hated and feared the baroness, while her adoptive brother inherited the company.]]
** [[spoiler: uranianUmbra]] is a fangirl of the kids and the trolls. She even draws fanart of them (Which is drawn by an [[http://wecansexy.tumblr.com/ actual fanartist on Tumblr]].) (Warning: link contains spoilers.)
* In ''Webcomic/ImpureBlood'', Mac, toward Roan. [[http://www.impurebloodwebcomic.com/Pages/Issue3/ib061.html Though she does realize it could be unpleasant for him]], [[http://www.impurebloodwebcomic.com/Pages/Issue4PAGES/ib082.html she doesn't realize he might dislike "The Abomination"]].
* ''Webcomic/LeifAndThorn'': Ivy is a [[http://leifandthorn.com/comic/fish-story-441/ gushing fangirl]] of in-universe magical-girl series.
* ''WebComic/MagickChicks'': Nearly the entire student body at [[AllGirlSchool Artemis Academy]] are fans of their student council president, [[SmugSuper Faith]] [[LovableAlphaBitch Abbot]], and her boyfriend, [[LovableRogue Ash]], despite the fact that he's the alpha from the competing school. So when they saw the two of them were about to go head-to-head, [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/you_have_improved they fangasmd.]]
* In ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'' fandom opinion is divided whether Missi is simply an over eager fangirl about Ash or a creepy StalkerWithACrush. It's [[InternetBackdraft strongly recommended to not mention the subject]] on the fan forum.
* In ''Webcomic/NipAndTuck'', [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00641.html denying the impact on your life is weakened when a fan girl goes squee over you.]]
* In ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'', Monique meets her first fangirl, just when she has decided to rebel against the patriarchy. Her fangirl still worships her as It-Girl.
* Marie of ''Webcomic/SandraOnTheRocks'' is a reasonably sane video games fan and blogger who occasionally displays [[http://www.sandraontherocks.com/strips-sotr/i_was_imagining_things slightly worrying fangirl tendencies towards Sandra.]] (The Franchise/SuperMarioBros lingerie there doesn't exactly make her look less of a fangirl either.) Offering to [[http://www.sandraontherocks.com/strips-sotr/stench_of_ex-husband wash Sandra's back]] in the {{shower|Scene}} might be considered a little worrying of her, too.
* A truly terrifying example exists in ''Webcomic/AndShineHeavenNow''. Around once a year the ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' characters get glomped by numerous chibi-fangirls who {{squee}} as they fly though the air and rant about how cool a character is after latching on. Even worse than this though is that the fangirls can also ''force people to act out their ships''. In a recent storyline, the Major (a fanboy of War himself) turns this to his advantage. [[spoiler:He gives a version of his 'I Love War' speech chock full of fandom terms to subdue the fangirls]].
* There was also the ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'' storyline in which most of the attendees of a comic book convention were mauled to death (in variously creative ways) by a small army of angry fangirls.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Iphigenie in ''Literature/GreekNinja'' is a big one. She fawns over any guy that is officially hot (and even unofficially hot.)
* Every time the young, handsome police officer Derek appears in the web fiction serial ''Literature/DimensionHeroes'', it results in the two female leads going crazy.
* ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'' has two Fangirls and a CampGay {{Fanboy}}. They worship (and stalk) Captain Hammer, and even engage in some DieForOurShip against his faux LoveInterest. After Hammer's humiliating defeat, they switch to Dr. Horrible, presumably because EvilIsSexy.
* Despite the fact that Fangirls make up a major part of the site, Website/GaiaOnline felt the need to mock fangirls in their lost Rejected Olympics Manga. The main event? ''Escape The Fan'', in which a rabid fangirl is released from a box to chase down a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire and an attractive (and female) Dark Elf. GratuitousJapanese and hilarity ensues, culminating with the fangirl getting a nosebleed during an attempted (same sex) KissOfTheVampire, and crying about her OTP when said kiss is interrupted.
* In the Literature/WhateleyUniverse, [[SuperheroSchool high school]] girl [[TheFairFolk Fey]] has her own fan club chock full of fangirls who are ''also'' superpowered mutants. Not only does this mortify her, but her friends tease her about it.
* Official Fanfiction Universities deal with... curing ...fangirls. Sample students include:
** Suzianna Goldenfur from the Literature/{{Redwall}} OFU, who supplies the page quote for BreadEggsMilkSquick.
** Nara from the VideoGame/{{Myst}} OFU, who calls for "Eedrah my love" in his wife's presence, and later writes a FanFic that brings a Character Replacement into being.
* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic fits the stereotype more than he does the [[{{fanboy}} male version]]. When he likes something, he'll glee over it and go into {{squee}} levels of excitement. More often than not he'll get crushed by the film making a bad move but it's still cute to see.
** And then there's Hyper Fangirl, a representation of [[RealitySubtext Doug's own fangirls who creep on him at cons.]]
* While WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick refuses to count herself as this, BFF Nella {{squee}}s over most things.
** And Elisa is a huge fan of ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'', writing Fanfic and having lots of merchandise!
* Roleplay/WeAreOurAvatars: Though normally stoic, Caroline Parton/[[PhysicalGod Athena]] gets a fangasm whenever a {{Bishounen}} from a video game she likes comes into the picture. She immediately asks for their autographs and/or gives them a hug.
* In ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony'', Pinkie Pie is a fangirl for ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' films. She frequently works ''LOTR'' references into her conversations, she wrote a massive SelfInsertFic (where her author avatar ends up in a love triangle with Bill the pony and Shadowfax), and her main reason for going to the Grand Galloping Gala was to share this fic with as many people as possible.
* Parody artist Jon Cozart, aka WebVideo/{{Paint}}, makes fun of Music/OneDirection fangirls in the song "Boy Brand"
-->A horde of girls threw my date down an empty well\\
After they threatened to drown me in styling gel.
* In the [[{{Superhero}} superhero]] [[{{WebSerialNovel}} web serial novel]] ''[[{{Literature/GamerGirl2016}} Gamer Girl]]'', Kazé/Fangirl is the self-proclaimed number one fan of the superhero Golden Boy as well as a superhero fangirl generally. Interestingly, her fandom seems to encompass both the real superheroes of the ''Gamer Girl'' [[{{TheVerse}} Verse]] and fictional superheroes from [[{{Creator/MarvelComics}} Marvel]] and [[{{Creator/DCComics}} DC]] comics.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** A random posse of fangirls shows up in the BeachEpisode when [[MrFanservice Zuko]] flings his shirt away. This is probably a shoutout to Zuko's massive EstrogenBrigade.
** In "The Warriors of Kyoshi", Kyoshi Island's girls (and one guy with a foamy mouth) mob Aang, to his delight, and Katara's annoyance. This was later punned upon by Azula in "Appa's Lost Days".
--->'''Azula:''' Who are you, the Avatar's [[PaperFanOfDoom fangirls?]]
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': Dipper fangirls (in the form of {{squee}}ing) after [[spoiler:Stanford Pines]] reveals the story of how he wrote the journals. He promptly apologizes for his outburst, but when [[spoiler:Ford]] attempts to continue, Dipper {{squee}}s again, and [[spoiler:Ford]] opts to ignore this and continues his story.
* Lilo Pelekai of the ''Franchise/LiloAndStitch'' franchise is a huge fan of Music/ElvisPresley. She owns many vinyl records of his music, loves his film ''Film/BlueHawaii'', uses him as a role model for Stitch to become a "model citizen" (and also to make him a fan of "The King"), and even has Stitch [[ElvisImpersonator impersonate Elvis]] at one point to wow beachgoers.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Rainbow Dash is this big time in the episode "Daring Don't". Which is especially hilarious since she takes great lengths to be seen as cool and awesome.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Ninjago}}'' a group of [[{{Adorkable}} Za]][[RidiculouslyHumanRobots ne]]-fangirls (and a Fanboy) showed up briefly.
* Melody Juniper to Bart in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode, "Flaming Moe".
* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' gives us the aptly-[[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname nicknamed (usernamed?)]] [=Starfan13=], who is completely obsessed with the title character. She even openly declared having a crush on Star.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'', Lance gains several of these while attending Sherman High, because AllGirlsWantBadBoys. Ilana had a bunch of these back on Galaluna, who try to copy her appearance.
* The ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' episode "Laundry Day" has Robin get chased by fangirls with camera-phones when he's [[NakedPeopleTrappedOutside locked out of the tower while naked]].
* Sierra from season three of ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Total Drama]]'' is, as the series puts it, an "Uber-fan", she mentions that she's created fansites for each and every character and knows their eatings habits, hopes and fears and even their ''dental records.'' Needless to say, she creeps everyone out, ''especially'' Cody.
** The Aftermath sections had a few fangirls (and boys) as well. One had even made a Trent doll.
* In "Into the Hundred Acre Wood" on ''WesternAnimation/DocMcStuffins'', this is Doc's reaction every time she meets one of the Pooh characters, with a dose of CutenessProximity as well when she meets Piglet, squeezing his face and calling him a cutie-patootie. Hallie also has a fangirl reaction to Pooh.
* Lydia Deetz, normally a low-key, level-headed girl, goes into fangirl mode when WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}} introduces her to Edgar Allen Poe in the Neitherworld (episode "Poe Pourri").
* Sydney from ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'' is a fanatic of ''[[ShowWithinAShow Commander Cressida]]''. She owns all the comics, freaks out when she's about to miss an episode of the cartoon, draws her own ''Commander Cressida'' comics in her spare time, sometimes cosplays as her, knows the theme song by heart, and brings her up whenever she gets the chance.
