->''"She's a brick… house!\\
She's mighty mighty, just lettin' it all hang out\\
She's a brick… house!\\
The lady's stacked and that's a fact,\\
ain't holding nothing back."''
-->-- '''The Commodores'''

The Amazonian Beauty is what happens when MsFanservice [[HulkingOut hulks out]].

Often times, such as in fighting video games like ''Franchise/StreetFighter'', a lot of beautiful women are jacked but no one comments on it, since to the characters it is the norm for them to see characters like that, despite the fact that they are still {{Ms Fanservice}}s who go above and beyond the call of duty in some cases.

A quick litmus test for this trope is:

* Is the female character in question muscular?
* Is her muscularity emphasized (pointed out in-universe or by flexing), or is she noticeably large?
* Is her muscle the integral and dominant physical trait of her bare skin due to large mass or definition? (Is most of the skin sculpted or bulky instead of smooth? Fairchild at right is an excellent example of both "sculpted" skin ''and'' muscle mass.) Of course, this can be DependingOnTheArtist.
* Finally, is she accompanied by tropes which emphasize {{Fanservice}}, [[TheBeautifulTropes Beauty]], and/or {{Attracti|on Tropes}}veness? [[note]] Examples: {{Stripperific}}, MaleGaze, SheCleansUpNicely, BeautifulAllAlong, AmazonChaser, PowerIsSexy, etc. [[/note]]

If the answer to all four above is "yes," the character qualifies for this trope.

This character can take her muscularity to HeroicBuild levels. Sometimes starts out as a SuperStrongChild, and usually (if not almost always) is an ActionGirl. They always have [[BoobsOfSteel large]] [[MostCommonSuperPower breasts]], strong toned muscles, toned midriffs, sculpted abs, toned broad shoulders, and [[ShesGotLegs strong well-developed legs]]. Her smaller (and equally dangerous) sister or cousin is the CuteBruiser. Given that these girls are often tall to further enhance their presentation of strength, romances with them are likely to result in TinyGuyHugeGirl and MasculineGirlFeminineBoy.

Compare AmazonChaser where a character finds a woman attractive because of her fighting skills. If he's attracted to her ''muscles'', she's an Amazonian Beauty. Of course, both tropes can be in play at the same time if he's attracted to both.

Contrast BrawnHilda and BigBeautifulWoman. Some of these characters also double as {{Statuesque Stunner}}s. Often times [[GiantWoman giant women]] will be this type of beauty, especially if they are from a tribe of giants. When the female in question worries about the slippery slope between this trope and BrawnHilda, it usually results in MuscleAngst. For its DistaffCounterpart, see {{Hunk}}.



[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/TheLegendOfMotherSarah'' features one of the earliest representations of this trope in Japanese media, featuring a tall, athletic and imposing woman as the main character. Despite her unusual build and seldom displaying her body, many of the men she comes across in the series ogle her (like her co-prisoners in the work camps) or openly state that they find her very attractive.
* Tania from ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', a literal Amazon. She is truly ''gigantic,'' towering over nearly every character in the show both in height and muscularity (her biceps are almost as big as her head). She completely blows Misawa's mind and he becomes hopelessly smitten with her (even [[IChooseToStay staying with her in her home dimension later]]).
* [[MightyGlacier Houmei]] from ''Manga/{{Aiki}}'' is built like a bodybuilder and where's a very revealing dress which as high side-slits on both sides, a CleavageWindow and opening on the back. [[ActionGirl Akemi Kageyasu]] shows also a very toned build and her clothing reveals her well defined abs.
* Revy from ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' has a very toned body with muscular legs, Eda has a similar build.
* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'':
** [[Characters/DragonBallKale Kale]], the [[MirrorUniverse Universe 6]] counterpart of another [[Characters/DragonBallBroly "legendary" Saiyan]], is able to [[HulkingOut transform]] into a muscular and [[StatuesqueStunner taller]] "Super Saiyan [[TheBerserker Berserk]]" form. She retains the "[[AmbiguouslyBrown dark-skinned beauty]]" description from her Magazine/ShonenJump press release description, in addition to her usual [[BareYourMidriff midriff]] exposing her new form's defined abs. Her controlled and mastered forms follow the same trend.
** Coincidentally, Kefla, a Saiyan [[FusionDance potara fusion]], adopts a similarly toned olympian physique and tanner skin once she accesses her Super Saiyan form. [[spoiler: It helps that fusion not only takes physical features from Caulifla, but also Kale.]]
* Reiko Ando from ''Anime/OutlawStar'' has the musculature you'd expect from a woman who's won the title of the [[WorldsStrongestMan "Strongest Woman in the Universe"]] four times in a row. She was aiming for the fifth time which would allow her to marry [[CampGay Fred Luo]], who's secretly trying to stop her from winning ([[IncompatibleOrientation she doesn't realize he's not interested in women]]). The main character, Gene, thinks she has a beautiful and feminine face but is a bit freaked out by how muscular she is. Still, despite the opinions of the former two, she did have an audience cheering for her before her match.
* Nearly all the female characters in the PantyFighter series, ''Anime/QueensBlade'', [[{{Stripperiffic}} are scantily clad fighters]] and provide loads of fanservice. Some of them just happen to be muscular as well.
** Cattleya's appearance can be described as matronly but strong. When she's not fighting she could be mistaken as slightly chubby due to her ginormous breasts and having a bit of a belly. In combat, however, her muscles tense and you can see that she actually has extremely muscular arms, back, and bulky thighs. Her outfits is an [[NakedApron extremely revealing apron-like dress with no underwear]].
** Risty is lean and muscular and her outfit is a thong and a top that shows off most of her torso.
** There's also Anarista a side character who's slightly more muscular than Risty. Her default outfit is fishnet leotard and a loin cloth. All of her outfits are equally revealing.
* In comparison to later depictions, [[Franchise/GhostInTheShell Major Motoko Kusanagi]] in the [[Anime/GhostInTheShell 1995 animated film adaption]] is shown to have some muscle on her bones (such as when trying to rip open the hatch of a tank late in the movie, [[HeroicRROD although she pushes her cyborg body past its limits, literally pulling herself apart]]). The ''[[SensualSpandex extremely]] [[FormFittingWardrobe tight]]'' [[SpyCatsuit thermoptic camouflage bodysuit]] doesn't exactly leave much to the imagination either. The suit sticks pretty close to the manga as author Creator/ShirowMasamune is ''[[AuthorAppeal extremely]]'' [[AuthorAppeal fond]] of drawing statuesque women with an exquisitely detailed musculature.
* [[DarkSkinnedRedhead Genie]], the resident [[ActionGirl swordswoman]] of ''Anime/RuneSoldierLouie'', is shown to be pretty built in both the arms and [[BoobsOfSteel chest]] department and is [[StatuesqueStunner quite tall]]. She also strides into battle with [[{{Stripperiffic}} little clothing]] other than what appears to be a [[BareYourMidriff midriff-barring]] bikini with a loincloth and cowl worn over that.
** Not to mention she carries the exact same amount of bulk and muscle mass as the titular character Louie, who himself is one of the biggest characters in the series.
* In a few of Creator/GoNagai's works (''Iron Muscle'' and ''Mazinger Angels''), there's a recurring character named Sakurako Honou ([[http://elee0228.deviantart.com/journal/33359942/ see here]]). Very muscular (especially in the arms and abs) and ''very'' {{fanservice}}y (up to and including a few naked shots in volume 3 of ''Iron Muscle'').
** And speaking of Nagai, there's the [[http://i.imgur.com/rXz02kx.jpg Jun]] of ''Manga/IronVirginJun'' who's muscular yet very feminine. Most of the characters in the series lust after her and she frequently finds her herself nude or in erotic situations but true to the title she does remain a virgin for most of the series (in the manga).
* Casca from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' is quite well-toned from her career as a mercenary and even admitted that she was embarrassed to wear a [[SheCleansUpNicely shoulder-revealing ball gown]] because of her muscles (of course this did not stop love interest Guts from totally gawking at her). After the [[BreakTheCutie trauma she suffered]] from the Eclipse, however, Casca loses a considerable amount of muscle.
* [[EyepatchOfPower Valmet]] from ''Manga/{{Jormungand}}'' is ripped, and at least three guys on her mercenary team find her physically attractive, though [[BuxomIsBetter it's mainly because of her large breasts]] as revealed in the BeachEpisode where they try to grope her breasts without [[PervertRevengeMode incurring her wrath]].[[note]]EpicFail on the guys' part.[[/note]] The same episode also had lingering closeups of her in a bikini highlighting her muscled body.
* Later volumes of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' have Aging, a roughly seven-foot-tall woman with a physique resembling Michelangelo's David, only with breasts and 50% more muscle definition. While she intimidates the hell out of most men (it's somewhat reasonable to be afraid of a woman who uses a minigun as a one-handed firearm), the text makes it clear that the muscle makes her no less attractive.
* [[ActionGirl Mikasa Ackerman]] from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' is pretty enough [[LoveAtFirstSight to leave Jean literally speechless]], but, man, is she ripped under that uniform. While you don't get to see much of her muscularity in actual series, some official illustrations have her wear tanktops and sports bras to show off her physique.
* Supaz from ''Manga/UbelBlatt'', was a fat woman in a modest royal dress and cape. Later on [[spoiler:Lord Glenn]] grants her and her brothers new powers which, for her, slims her body into an athletically built woman with one disproportionally more muscular and monstrous arm. Unlike her brothers, who are in full armor after their transformation, she's in an [[ChainmailBikini armored leotard]] which [[BareYourMidriff exposes her bottom torso]] and has a CleavageWindow which shows off a lot of cleavage since her breasts, which were already large on her wider pre-transformation state from are the same size afterwards.
* ''Anime/VariableGeo'': Jun Kubota is a former Olympic wrestling champion and has the physique to show it; [[http://www.animevice.com/jun-kubota/18-28546/all-images/84-197565/kubota_jun/83-719139/ being tall and semi-muscular]]. Which makes her the most athletic combatant competing in the VG Tournament. She's also [[AmbiguouslyBrown a dark skinned]] raven-haired beauty, with [[StatuesqueStunner a stunning figure]]. Suffice to say, when [[ShamefulStrip she had to strip]], following her loss to Yuka, the crowd liked what they saw -- muscles and all.
* [[ActionGirl Michelle K. Davis]] from ''Manga/TerraforMARS'' sports a very muscular physique as seen when she [[BareYourMidriff bares her midriff]] in her manga depiction and in anime based official artwork. Her attributes are mostly due to the genetic characteristics of the Paraponera Clavata (commonly known as the bullet ant) which she inherited from her father. But her physical strength and 85 kg of muscle also find an explanation in her weight training. She is a main [[ActionGirlfriend love interest]] for Akari Hizamaru but most of the guys of the mission crew also find her attractive, becoming occasional {{Amazon Chaser}}s when they see her displaying her fighting abilities.
* Elle Ragu from ''Anime/ShadowSkill''. The 59th Sevaar of Kuruda and one of the Four Fighters. She is the main [[ActionGirl heroine]] of the series and a master warrior in the martial art known as "Shadow Skill". Elle sports a slender though very muscular physique in both her anime and manga depictions, a feature that goes hand in hand with her courage and {{tomboy}}ish attitude. This causes her to often act [[BrainlessBeauty hastily and not so wisely]]. She also has a younger adopted brother, Gau Ban, whom she protects and teaches in the arts of the Kuruda fighting style. However, towards the end of the series is implied that their relationship changes from [[LikeBrotherAndSister siblinghood]] up to a [[ImpliedLoveInterest romantic affection]].
* ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple''
** [[ActionGirl Mildred Lawrence]], the bow wielding member of the Hachiou Executioner Blade of Yami. She is the most muscular female in the series. Besides her archer skills and immense strength, Mildred has [[RedRightHand double pupiled eyes]], an attribute which provides her extreme accuracy at aim. Despite her muscular physique, Mildred's still plenty comparable to the rest of females in terms of attractiveness, a feature highlighted by her revealing [[MsFanservice outfit]] and some [[ClothingDamage clothing damage]].
* Okoi from ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}'' is a tall and powerful kunoichi with a ripped physique to match, particularly her legs. The fact that she always dresses up in a much more {{stripperific}} manner than the other girls in the series, [[spoiler: if to better use her powers]], only shows this further. She is also considered quite attractive, [[AttemptedRape maybe a bit too much for her own good]], but, then again, thanks to her [[spoiler:[[VampiricDraining blood-sucking ability]]]], she can ''more'' than defend herself from any scoundrel.
* Noi from ''Manga/{{Dorohedoro}}'' has a hulking figure and most people thought she was a guy thanks to her outfit that hide her curves and a gruesome mask she always wears. Later on her gender is revealed and some characters are surprised that she's actually quite busty and has a very feminine face despite her bulk. Later on she starts wearing more flattering clothes and there even a couple panels where she's completely topless.
* ''Manga/UchiNoMusumeNiTeODasuNa'': Athena is ''ripped'', having clearly defined abs, biceps, and thigh muscles and has such a bangin' hot bod that she's been [[InUniverseExamplesOnly acknowledged]] [[LustObject as a MILF.]] Ironically, it's the reason she retired from being [[{{Superhero}} a superheroine]]: because hardly anyone could take their eyes off her. And some weren't content to [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty just]] ''[[RapeAsBackstory look.]]''

[[folder:Card Games]]
* The majority of the Amazoness series of cards in ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'' are a clan of attractive women who are at least athletically built/toned. Their [[{{Stripperiffic}} revealing attire]] doesn't exactly hurt in this regard either.
* ''TabletopGame/SentinelsOfTheMultiverse'''s resident GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe, Sky-Scraper. We get a good look at her ample muscle development with both her normal variant's costume (a tight-fitting top and shorts) and her Extremist variant's costume (even more tight-fitting LeotardOfPower).

* The former comedy duo [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0022767/ Idan Alterman]] and [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0334455/ Avi Grainik]] used to perform as a pair of characters named [[http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=en&safe=off&sa=N&biw=1280&bih=921&tbm=isch&tbnid=M5C0_cfaO5d6IM:&imgrefurl=http://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,7340,L-1298868,00.html&docid=LAs8-jD0VBt1HM&imgurl=http://www.ynet.co.il/PicServer/290801/148640/star_a.jpg&w=116&h=116&ei=aewsUIySEoSn0QXToIHIDA&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=417&sig=103213913835662315625&page=1&tbnh=92&tbnw=92&start=0&ndsp=30&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0,i:75&tx=11&ty=78 Tsakhi and Meir,]] respectively, in various skit shows, and between 2001-2003 they hosted a talk show named ''The Neighbourhood Stars''[[note]] כּוֹכְבֵי הַשְּׁכוּנָה, ''Kokhvei haShkhuna''; for some reason this show doesn’t appear on Website/IMDb [[/note]]. At one point they had a segment on the show featuring the attempts to find a wife for Tsakhi, featuring videos sent by women from all over Israel who tried to win Tsakhi's affections. One of them was a prime example of this trope: a well-built and fairly attractive woman speaking to the camera while lifting weights and talking about training with Tsakhi. [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon Meir wasn't too thrilled with her]], but Tsakhi seemed to be more open to her, and even remarked it could be nice to say, "Watch out, or I'll call my wife on ya!" (Eventually he married another famous comedy character, though.)

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ComicBook/SheHulk is almost seven feet tall, usually muscular. How muscular is [[DependingOnTheArtist dependent on the artist]] but it is a huge range, from just noticeable one issue to out-muscling most male superheros in another. Still, the height and the muscles haven't stopped her from being one of the Marvel universe's [[ReallyGetsAround most promiscuous]] superheroines. Nor has it stopped her from providing huge amounts of {{fanservice}}, as she frequently finds herself fighting in her underwear, swimwear, or [[ClothingDamage clothes torn to shreds]].
** There's also her EvilCounterpart Titania, who like She-Hulk is also very muscular. Her costume is a purple leotard that exposes most of her torso. She's also [[UnholyMatrimony married to another villain]] Crusher Creel, [[AmazonChaser who admires her for her strength]].
** Later on [[ComicBook/BettyRoss Red She-Hulk]] is introduced who, unsurprisingly, looks a lot like She-Hulk and also has a habit of getting her clothes torn.
* ComicBook/PowerGirl is often depicted with a muscular build and huge biceps. Her most muscular depiction is in ComicBook/KingdomCome where she has [[http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s311/cmaeditor/Power_Woman.jpg bodybuilder-like proportions]]. Regardless of physique she's considered extremely attractive InUniverse, though [[BuxomIsBetter it's usually for her softer features]] since she's the bustiest superheroine in the DC universe and wears leotard with a huge CleavageWindow showing off that fact.
* ComicBook/WonderWoman is canonically the WorldsMostBeautifulWoman and usually fights in a revealing strapless form-fitting leotard or bustier-hotpants combo. While she's usually depicted as tall and lithe in most issues, there are some where she is portrayed with having a very muscular yet voluptuous build for her body along with strong toned muscles.
* Grace Choi from ''ComicBook/BatmanAndTheOutsiders'' is a seven foot tall muscular amazon. Her outfit is usually pants with a sleeveless crop top or a sports-bra-like top, both of which show off her muscular arms and abs. Despite the muscles, height and being somewhat of a butch, [[ReallyGetsAround she's managed to rack up quite of few sexual partners]].
* Caitlin Fairchild from ''ComicBook/{{Gen13}}'' DependingOnTheArtist. It's explicitly stated that a muscular physique is part of her powerset and characters in the series have described her as muscular, but her depictions go anywhere from skinny to slightly ripped to muscular powerhouse. Regardless of how she's depicted, she is considered extremely beautiful by a lot of characters; her teammate Freefall has a [[http://i.imgur.com/Ln9CBMC.jpg long-standing inferiority complex]] because she feels she can't measure up to [[http://i.imgur.com/uKUTHHh.jpg Fairchild's ridiculous beauty]], for instance.
** Pictured is her ComicBook/New52 incarnation who can become muscular at will by activating her powers. The first time she shows her abilities is in ComicBook/{{Superboy}} where the increase in muscle size shreds [[DressedInLayers her first layer of clothes revealing]] a [[http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/6/60598/2079418-jnjm.png swimsuit-like outfit underneath]].
* [[http://www.lymandally.com/ Lyman Dally]] tends to like drawing muscular physiques for women seeing as he was a former bodybuilder himself. In one series of his, ''Max Rep'', there's Quadra-Blu, the most successful female bodybuilder in the galaxy and an [[WillTheyOrWontThey on-again, off-again lover]] of the titular character (himself a bodybuilder). However, [[http://femalemuscle.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Max-Rep-2-Lyman-Dally.jpg at one point]] she does consider slimming down and going into fitness because she finds herself to be a bit ''too'' bulky. Max does not enjoy this news.
* Giganta, a member of WonderWoman's RoguesGallery and the second ComicBook/SecretSix, [[MeaningfulName is quite the]] StatuesqueStunner (6'6" by default, and she can [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever grow to several hundred feet tall]]), but is commonly drawn with a muscular build. This is accentuated by her [[IconicOutfit usual attire]] of [[VaporWear a leopard print skirt and matching bra]], giving Giganta a very convincing NubileSavage vibe. Unfortunately for fans of this trope, ever since DC's ''One Year Later'' storyline, Giganta dons a [[HellBentForLeather leather]] [[SpyCatsuit catsuit]] and appears to be much slimmer.
* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' in ''ComicBook/ElseworldsFinestSupergirlAndBatgirl'' [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_5YsHcdKj67c/TOWTksl9WoI/AAAAAAAABaU/elFp05zTdJ4/s1600/ElseworldsFinest-12%2BSupergirl%2526Batgirl.jpg looks more like a female version of Superman]] than the one in the main DC universe. Like him she's tall, very muscular, and treated like a goddess by the public.
* Big Barda, a former member of Darkseid's [[AmazonBrigade Female Furies]], is a bruiser who makes ''Franchise/{{Supe|rman}}s'' [[TinyGuyHugeGirl look like a midget in comparison]]. She's considered extremely beautiful in-universe, despite her humongous size and muscle tone. [[HappilyMarried (Unfortunately for her admirers, she's taken.)]]
* Knockout, who's made noticeable appearances ''ComicBook/{{Superboy}}'', ''ComicBook/SecretSix'', and ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey'' and usually depicted with muscular arms. She had a romantic relationship with Superboy that ended when he realized [[CuteAndPsycho she's a violent sociopath]]. After Superboy she started dating Scandal of the ComicBook/SecretSix.
* Stunner, a member of Franchise/SpiderMan's RoguesGallery, who looks like a blonde haired bodybuilder wearing a skin-tight leotard. True to her name, she is described as breathtakingly beautiful and in her first appearances [[http://i.imgur.com/Gq60ZuV.jpg brags about how beautiful she is to some patrons at a bar]], who judging by the smiles on their faces didn't disagree.
** The reason why Stunner is so beautiful is that she's a [[HardLight virtual reality construct]] (tangible hologram) controlled by Angelina Brancale. Angelina is an obese woman who wanted to be thin and beautiful, so Doctor Octopus, another Spider-Man villain and her lover at the time, gave her a machine that allowed her to be Stunner.
* [[http://www.comicvine.com/images/1300-2511862 Brava]] from ''ComicBook/StrikeforceMorituri'', whose superhuman ability was superhuman size, strength, and resistance, even beyond that of her teammates. She ended up just under seven feet tall, with a muscular build, flowing black hair, and sculpted European facial features. Her costume is a skintight light blue leotard that accentuates her body; not only was she flattered by the the attention she received, she was also not afraid to act on it.
* ''Comicbook/TotallyAwesomeHulk'' features the aforementioned She-Hulk, as well as a new character named Lady Hellbender, who is not only muscular (or at least is depicted as such by Frank Cho's art), but also wears an armored leotard. Her first appearance has the hero, Amadeus Cho, practically drooling over her.
* Kate Kane's first appearance as ComicBook/{{Batwoman}} in ''52'' depicts her as extremely muscular and toned, and she was previously established as rather tall for a woman. Renee Montoya, who happens to be one of the people Batwoman is saving, rather likes what she sees.
* Over the course of the ''ComicBook/XWingSeries'' [[TomboyPrincess Plourr Ilo]] is drawn increasingly muscular and increasingly likely to bare her arms, which does better fit with her [[BoisterousBruiser personality]] than her original appearance. It's after this change that recurring agent Kapp Dendo mentions being attracted to her.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'':
** Sharon Carter, described as looking (when undercover) as like the prettier type of PE teacher and attracting fairly blatant stares. She also fights like a brawler, clearly having the muscles to back it up.
** Of the younger generation, you've got Carol Danvers, who despite being 14 going on 15 [[YoungerThanTheyLook developed early]] (much to her chagrin, thanks to the resultant sexual harassment) and is both nearly six feet tall and stacked. Her [[PlotRelevantAgeUp temporarily aged up self]] is this but more so, being more obviously muscular. Harry, despite being JustFriends with her, notes that ageing had basically perfected what was already there. [[spoiler: Diana]], when aged up in the same incident, is at least six feet tall as well as being both voluptuous and built like a tank, being considered quite literally jaw-droppingly gorgeous, with the narration remarking that her appearance was a living reminder that this young woman was the niece of [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman Helen]] [[Literature/TheIliad Of Troy]].
* ''Fanfic/LastChildOfKrypton'': After becoming [[spoiler:''Franchise/WonderWoman'' -or ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' if you are reading the rewrite]] Asuka is brawnier, more muscular, and still gorgeous. When Shinji saw her he thought she looked even more beautiful.
* ''Fanfic/LifeOfTheLegendaries'' turns Cynthia into this. She's a tall woman with ''enormous'' strength (she effortlessly scooped up her Garchomp in a BridalCarry. That's about 209 pounds!), toned muscles and is almost constantly ogled wherever she goes (even by her own Garchomp!)
* ''FanFic/OriginStory'': It is remarked on that Alex is 6' 2” tall and is muscled like a bodybuilder. Louise, her girlfriend, is of average height and weight for an American woman, and is seen as “tiny” when standing next to Alex.
* The ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' has this with Dark World!Rarity. In addition to spending a thousand years as one of Discord's brainwashed CoDragons before being redeemed, she also spent it lugging around Tom and tons of rocks. As a result, she's ripped, but she's still...well, Rarity. Twilight even comments that Rarity looks graceful and lovely as ever. Spike also still considers her beautiful, and they finally end up an OfficialCouple.
* ''Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton'': The story makes an emphasis on ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} Asuka]]'' gaining an impressive muscle build and Shinji being attracted to her.
* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Asuka's alternate form is described as spectacularly well-built, muscular and athletic and still downright feminine and womanly and stunningly beautiful. Shinji finds her even hotter than he did before.
-->''Of the many faces she wore in her divinity, one was as she would have been given another ten years time, of a woman in full bloom at the prime of her life, confident and mature, her body spectacularly muscular and athletic while not sacrificing a single drop of femininity.''
* Alyssa Grunewald of ''Fanfic/TheFairyMythosSeries'' is described as out-muscling most of the men in the guild. However, she's Natsu's long-time girlfriend and he has regular fantasies about her.
* ''Fanfic/BelatedBattleships'' has most of the battleships being this way, with its interpretation of New Jersey in particular consistently being described as muscular, tall and still attractive.
* ''FanFic/ShatteredReflection'': Rose, [[FireEmblemAwakening Robin's alternate self from another dimension]], has a strong physique thanks to her time as a mercenary but still retains an air of femininity. It has gained her a not-small following of admirers within the army.
* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', Clair is described as having well-built arms due to her clan's training, [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon which have driven away several of her dates]]. Despite this, several characters actually consider her attractive.

* In ''Film/SkinDeep'', Zach (John Ritter), a guy who basically hasn't met a woman he hasn't wanted (or in many cases tried) to have sex with, picks up a attractive woman, Lonnie (Raye Hollit, who has a [[UsefulNotes/{{Bodybuilding}} bodybuilding]] background), and goes home with her. [[ClarkKentOutfit When they get naked, he discovers she's a really dedicated bodybuilder, muscles and all]]. He's still finds her attractive and the two have sex.
-->'''Lonnie:''' I hope you're not frightened now, Zach.
-->'''Zach:''' I'm not, but fortunately my cock is scared stiff.
* In ''Film/TheAdventuresOfPlutoNash'', Pluto and Dina go to see a body alteration specialist, who shows them different projections of what their bodies could look like. One of these is the pair as a male and female bodybuilder. Both of them are very impressed with their new potential bodies. Well, Dina is until Pluto has the specialist give her projection a way bigger chest and butt.
* ''Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier'' has Vixis, the [[TheDragon Klingon lieutenant]] who had some powerful looking arms. Sulu and Chekov seemed to be interested, the latter even commenting on her "wonderful muscles".
* There's a whole genre of films based on this trope. Most of them feature some girl or other flexing, beating up men, and sometimes wrestling with another girl. They generally run from about PG-13 to softcore porn (there are a few who do hardcore porn, however), depending on the girls participating and what their limits were.
* Pretty much the entire point of ''Film/{{Haywire}}'' was to showcase the main character, Mallory Kane (played by former MMA fighter Gina Carano), beat up everyone else in the movie. Especially in the hotel fight she is in a cocktail dress while doing so, with her arms and legs exposed while doing some rather intense choke holds.
* ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'' gives us Angel Dust (Gina Carano again). She goes toe-to-toe with ''Colossus'' and her outfit shows off enough cleavage to cause a WardrobeMalfunction halfway through the fight.
* The sequels to the 1990 CyberPunk ''Film/{{Nemesis}}'' films, starring bodybuilder Sue Price, feature her as the protagonist. They start of innocent enough, is somewhat cheesecake-ish, but by the fourth one, they get into borderline hardcore.

* Tisala in the ''Literature/{{Hurog}}'' series. Tall, muscular and badass. Ward, the protagonist, has been unable to forget her after seeing her once. His brother is at first surprised that Ward remembers her, and then admits he "likes her", too.
* Beth Halpern, from the Creator/MichaelCrichton novel ''Literature/{{Sphere}}'', was a very attractive weightlifter. One of the other characters described her as "Mother Nature with muscles".
* Junapur from ''Literature/{{Cerberon}}'' is large, well-muscled, and beautiful. She is also a LittleBitBeastly, but George sees her as strong, swift and beautiful as the Amazonian ideal.
* The tall, muscular, and pretty Monica Figuerola from the ''Literature/TheMillenniumTrilogy'' is described as this by the author and Blomkvist.
* Arlene from ''Literature/{{Doom}}''. Fly describes her as being the best looking woman he's ever seen, but not in the conventional sense of beauty. In particular he loves her muscle tone. One newbie to the squad once tried to pull down her pants and while the whole squad was interested in seeing more of her ass nobody else was stupid enough to piss her off.
* Bobbie Draper from James Corey's ''Literature/TheExpanse''. A Martian SpaceMarine who's curvy, muscular, pretty and well over six feet tall. Protagonist Jim Holden thinks she looks like a Polynesian beach bunny scaled up 150%.
* Thandi Palane introduced in ''Creator/DavidWeber'''s "Crown Of Slaves". She is from the hell planet Ndebele, and is described variously as "statuesque", "an ogress", and "very big and easily the most powerful-looking woman she had ever seen". Of course, she is also described as having a "grin which bordered on dazzling", and especially "That smile. The one which, along with her voice, put the goddess body to shame".
* In the second book of the ''Literature/OutlanderLeander'' series, Axe is over 7' tall and extremely muscular. She's shown lifting heavy objects and tossing them around with ease. Leander also mentions that a lot of people would probably find her attractive if she wasn't a terrifying murderer.
* Vorscha from the ''Literature/TheIronTeeth'' is a muscular warrior woman who is also described as good looking.
* ''Literature/CodexAlera'' gave us Mistress Cymnea, the resident MissKitty and later Tribune Logistica of the Battlecrows. Cymnea is a very shapely woman, which she loves to emphasize with form-fitting, sheer and provocative clothes. She also happens to be taller and broader at the shoulder than most men, and is perfectly capable of bodily tossing out a ''legionare'' in full armor should he try any funny business with her girls.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Most of the [[ActionGirl female members]] of the ''Series/AmericanGladiators'' were pretty ripped and their [[LeotardOfPower clothing]] did [[{{Stripperiffic}} very little to hide it]].
* Atalanta from ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'', a muscular blacksmith who wears a leotard-like outfit which shows off her buff arms, most of her chest and butt (really not too different from most of the female clothes in the show). While her physique makes it difficult to her to find romance, a couple of characters, including Hercules and Salmoneus, do find her physically attractive.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Josie Wahlford "[[RedBaron Minerva]]", a circus strong woman turned pro wrestler through the 1890 to 1910 who measured at 5'8 165 lbs when "discovered" [[TookALevelInBadass and reached]] 6'0 230 lbs in her physical prime, which would be quite large for any time period, especially that one. She received more mainstream publicity than any other woman of her fields during the time and was written about glowingly in ''San Antonio Daily Light'' and ''National Police Gazette'', the latter of which was notorious for its pictures of scantily clad women, which included a prime Minerva. [[ValuesDissonance Although given the time period]] visible collar bones or uncovered tights could be considered "scantly clad", the surviving pictures suggest she preferred LadyLegionnaireWear.
* The majority of Mildred Burke's promotional photos focused on her bicep, trapezius, deltoid, rhomboid or teres muscles but she was always dolled up and presented as glamorous or accessible wherever the focus was.
* The look Wrestling/WendiRichter was going for, described by herself as "twisted steel and sex appeal". She rarely forgot to flex in her photos.
* On some level, the large majority of women wrestlers count, not just giants like Minerva or those chiseled like Burke. Even with Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s branded "divas", who are [[AuthorAppeal encouraged]] to become much skinnier than [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon other wrestling women in the name of "sexy"]], still tend to be noticeably more muscular than most of the celebrity guest hosts the company brings in.
* La Tigresa was a standard setter in Puerto Rican pro wrestling. Not as quite buff as some later examples but by no means slim, able to throw around most men with ease and the subject of many admirers([[GreenEyedMonster even though she wasn't single]]).
* [[Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}} Miss Texas/Ms. Tennessee/Sweet Georgia Brown/Queen Moesha/Sgt Rock]], though pretty short, was noticeably cut and had numerous suitors across the territories.
* Mariko Yoshida was above average for her size but wasn't ''particularly'' buff compared compared to the rest of the [[Wrestling/AllJapanWomensProWrestling AJW roster]] either. However, during her runs through shallow rosters, such Wrestling/{{CMLL}}(which only had one women's division when she first showed up) or the periodic [=ChickFight=] {{tournament|arc}}, she got to play it up.
* GAEA Dojo graduate turned trainer and later Sendai Girls co-owner Meiko Satomura. She wrestles in singlets and leotards but she perfectly fine with [[http://www.genickbruch.com/pics/bio_gross/100801349784410.jpg donning a two piece for the camera]].
* Wrestling/TerriPoch was originally going to debut as this. She had gotten into wrestling after body building when someone suggested she had a good look for it. Wrestling/XPac apparently wanted a muscular woman to be his valet. But for whatever reason she ended up debuting as LoonyFan Tori-who instead went into Wrestling/WrestleMania in a disgustingly ugly body suit-though her entrance video still played up her attractiveness.
* Wrestling/{{Chyna}} was initially presented as a BrawnHilda but kept attracting suitors throughout her wrestling career. As her looks became more feminine through plastic surgery, she attracted Wrestling/EddieGuerrero. What's more is that ''he'' courted ''her''.
* Wrestling/{{ECW}}'s mainstay was [[Wrestling/CarleneMoore Jazz]], though apart from her musculature she was kind of flat, which might be why some like Wrestling/TommyDreamer argued in the [[BrawnHilda other direction]]. Later came her arch rival Prodigette, who was similarly built but taller(and bigger boobed).
* [[Wrestling/AngelinaLove Angel Williams]] was known as "[[RedBaron The Hard Body]]" and boasted "Perfect" biceps and abdominal muscles. Later, she also boasted "[[FakeBoobs All New 36 DDs]]".
* This was in fact one of Wrestling/JimRoss's calling cards in WWE, as he would recruit fitness models for the company, [[Wrestling/TrishStratus two]] [[Wrestling/LisaMarieVaron of which]] became very successful wrestlers, though Victoria already had a wrestling background.
* [[Wrestling/SarahStock Dark Angel]] moved to Mexico to become a better wrestler but she got just as much attention for her looks as she did for stretching opponents suspended across her back after her mask was removed by Princesa Sujei in LLF. Wrestling/{{AAA}} used unmasked Dark Angel almost exclusively for her beauty but she jumped ship to Wrestling/{{CMLL}} who also had a great interest in seeing her wrestle. No mistaking that CMLL also wasn't interested in Dark Angel's beauty, as she became staple of their body building contests during her time there, winning seven. But as that implies, CMLL had no problem showing everyone that Dark Angel was cut all over in addition to having a pretty face. She later formed "El Sexy Team" with Goya Kong and Estrellita. On the subject of Sujei, she doesn't show off as often but [[https://www.facebook.com/212043558814035/photos/a.768180576533661.1073741844.212043558814035/896585307026520/?type=1 can hold her own]] in body building [[https://www.facebook.com/212043558814035/photos/a.768180576533661.1073741844.212043558814035/898478723503845/?type=1&permPage=1 as well.]]
* [[Wrestling/SaraDelRey American Angel's]] career seemed to be going down a similar path as Dark Angel's after she was also unmasked in LLF by Tsunami and Wrestling/LarrySweeney thought she'd be perfect for the WWE women's division, whose marketing slogan at the time was "Smart, Sexy, Powerful". Sara Del Rey actively {{defied|trope}} his and other's wishes by slapping on scary looking {{fac|ialMarkings}}e [[EvilEyeBrows paint]] and then getting [[Wrestling/WrestlingSocietyX another mask]].
* Wrestling/BethPhoenix who started her career lecturing fans about what "a real wrestler looked like" and was nicknamed "The Glamazon" in 2005. She calls herself "The Perfect Combination Of Strength And Beauty". When she was in a relationship with Wrestling/SantinoMarella, he would sometimes celebrate his wins [[BridalCarry by leaping into her arms.]]
* This worked against Wrestling/TorrieWilson on [[Wrestling/WWESmackdown Thursday Night Smackdown]], as she ended being [[AbhorrentAdmirer harassed]] by Wrestling/DawnMarie, who said she was into Torrie for being so "strong and soft"...though Dawn was [[DepravedBiSexual also]] into Torrie's elderly father, so...
* When WWC wanted to revive its women's division around 2006, one of its front runners for it was La Morena, who was almost the exact same size as the aforementioned Beth Phoenix and had ring gear adorned with [[PlayboyBunny bunny symbols]]. The large majority of the women from the time period counted though, Morena coming off as "average" when going from Genesis (smaller) to Sweet Nancy (larger).
* IBUKI strong woman Hiroyo Matsumoto is just as likely to strike "sexy" poses as she is to flex and flaunt her muscles.
* {{Invoked|Trope}} by Nikki Storm, who flexed her muscles while trying to flirt with a referee in Pippa L'Vinn's Wrestling Factory.
* Irish wrestler Wrestling/KateyHarvey plays this up - particularly when she appears for Wrestling/CelticChampionshipWrestling. Her promos reference her muscles and how she's both stronger and more attractive than the other women. Her signature taunt as she enters the ring is a HairFlip followed by a flex of her muscles.
* Katey's SpiritualSuccessor is Debbie Keitel - a glamorous model who is also quite jacked herself. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rW2T2SGLoM Her debut vignette]] first had her lifting weights and then donning a LittleBlackDress.
* Silvie Silver is a fitness model and wrestler, and likes to flex and flip her hair seductively as she makes her entrance.
* {{Wrestling/Aksana}} is a former body builder and fitness competitor and was pushed as a ShamelessFanserviceGirl during her time in WWE.
* ''{{Wrestling/GLOW}}'' had Olympia, who had a body builder gimmick, and flexed in her intro rap and entrance. Plenty of promotional photos have her posed sexily while also flexing.
* Initially downplayed by Wrestling/AlexaBliss - who is a former bodybuilder - as she was presented as a CuteBruiser with a 'fairy princess' gimmick. After a FaceHeelTurn to become HotterAndSexier, this was played up more.
* Wrestling/BeckyLynch frequently posts pictures from the gym to her Instagram, and calls herself 'The Delty Diva'. She too is a former bodybuilder and personal trainer.
* Wrestling/DanaBrooke had a series of introduction vignettes hyping up her fitness background. Her entrance consists of showing off her muscles in a seductive way.
* [[Wrestling/BellaTwins Nikki Bella]] was initially much daintier and waifier - which according to her was achieved by doing daily ab and cardio workouts to match her sister Brie's naturally thinner frame. But while recovering from a knee injury, she got into body building and returned far more jacked than she had been previously. She also wore plenty of skimpy outfits in the ring.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* In ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', the art for the ''Ice Age'' version of [[http://i.imgur.com/hkGAKUX.jpg Counterspell]] depicts an muscular woman casting the spell wearing a swimsuit-like outfit.
* In ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'', the official art depicts Zhyzhak (the signature [[EvilCounterpart Black Spiral Dancer]]) as tall, long-haired, very muscular, and wears dominatrix outfits that show a lot of skin.


[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' has quite a few female characters that are very muscular and it doesn't seem to stop them from provide a lot of fanservice.
** Chun-li thanks to her legs which, [[DependingOnTheArtist depending on the game and official art]], range from toned or massive pillars of muscle. Makes sense considering her [[KickChick fighting style is largely based on kicking]]. Her upper body is usually slender with a few exceptions such as in the [[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Alpha series]] where she has muscular arms and abs. Most of her costumes are fairly modest but always designed to emphasize her legs either with tights and/or her of her dresses having waist high side slits. These also make sense for not impeding the range of motion on her legs.
*** A winquote from ''IV'' has saying her that she needs to build ''more muscles''.
** Cammy ([[DependingOnTheArtist usually]]) has slender build with solid muscular tone but it's hard to notice since the camera likes to take advantage of the fact that she [[LeotardOfPower fights in a thong leotard]] by [[MaleGaze focusing on her butt]]).
** As of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'', the likes of [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Ibuki]] and ''especially'' [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Makoto]] show off significant muscle definition along with {{Dangerously Short Skirt}}s.
** Juri has also muscular arms, abs and legs, as demonstrated with her BareYourMidriff outfit, and her costumes are all {{Stripperiffic}} and scantily-clad.
* In ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken'' most of female cast are depicted as a lot more muscular than their usual portrayals in their home franchises.
** Nina Williams (''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'') due to her legs becoming a lot more muscular. Her outfits is a bodysuit that covers most of her body but is [[FormFittingWardrobe form fitting]] enough for that not to matter
** Julia Chang (''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'') who wears a midriff bearing tank top and a miniskirt. She's usually slender, but here she's buff all over.
** Poison from (''VideoGame/FinalFight''), has six pack abs and muscular legs exposed by her tank top and daisy dukes.
* Felicia from the ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' series is depicted with a [[http://www.fightersgeneration.com/np2/char2/char/felicia-ds2-art.jpg very muscular upper body]] in the first two installments but from the third one continuing in her appearances in other Creator/{{Capcom}} she's slimmed to a petite body. In all installments however her default outfit mainly consists of thin fur strips that keep her from being completely nude.
* ''VideoGame/CaptainCommando'' has Carol and Brenda, [[{{Stripperiffic}} two scantily clad]] {{Palette Swap}}ped enemies that use [[ShockAndAwe electric attacks]]. The [[http://i.imgur.com/rW3nkbH.png in-game sprites]] have huge arms, while in [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090201051235/capcomdatabase/images/5/5d/CapComCarol.png official works and promo material]] for the game have them lean and muscular.
* [[{{Beastess}} Sheeva]] from ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' series is a member of a [[MultiArmedAndDangerous four armed]] [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human, half-dragon]] warrior race called the Shokan. Like the male members of her species she's tall, muscular (especially in [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100703163251/mk/images/c/c2/Sheeva_Armageddon.PNG ''Armageddon'']]), and monstrous, [[CuteMonsterGirl though to a much lesser degree]]. While her body type is unique among the female cast in the series, all have the same slender yet curvy build, her costumes are not. Like the rest of the females she is also [[{{Stripperiffic}} scantly-clad]] with her usual outfit being a [[http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110919082804/mk_/images/c/c2/SheevaMK3versus.png sling-bikini]], and her other costumes being just as revealing.
* Vanessa Lewis from ''VideoGame/VirtuaFighter''. Her outfits always show off a lot skin, but especially emphasize her muscular arms, washboard abs and tree-trunk thighs. This was most noticeable in ''Virtua Fighter 4''. ''[[UpdatedRerelease Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown]]'' makes it optional; players can customize her with a skin texture that greatly increases her muscle tone.
** Sarah in ''[=VF4=]'', in the form of big biceps. Hard to miss since she wears a [[FormFittingWardrobe skintight sleeveless bodysuit]]. Like Vanessa, she was slimmed down in ''5'', and muscle tone and definition vanished.
* Blue Mary from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' thanks to her defined biceps and her halter crop top that exposing them. She's also a love interest to Terry Bogard, one of the central characters in the series.
* Shina from ''VideoGame/BloodyRoar'' series has some muscular arms and toned abs which are shown off by most of her outfits being sleeveless crop tops. Special mentions go to her default outfit in Bloody Roar 3 which [[http://www.fightersgeneration.com/characters2/shina-br3-2.jpg the top looked like a sports bra]], and her alternate outfit in Primal Furry was a [[http://i.imgur.com/BizUOg9.png sleeveless crop top and hot pants]].
* Mrs. Arrow, married to Super Arrow, from the ''VideoGame/FZero'' series was introduced in ''VideoGame/FZero X'' with a physique of a bodybuilder. In ''GX'', she showing off said physique. Her {{Idle Animation}}s at the Settings screen, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MsdjhC7EPI her post-race interviews,]] is her flexing her one of her arms. In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyfymoXQx_o her ending video]] she's driving an audience wild doing bodybuilder poses in a bikini.
* Black Widow from ''[[VideoGame/SaturdayNightSlamMasters Ring of Destruction: Slam Masters II]]'', though it's at the very end of her storyline. For some unknown reason her gender is ambiguous for most of the game because she's already extremely muscular physique, and [[http://static4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110116023408/capcomdatabase/images/c/c0/SM2BlackWidow.png full-body costume]] which gives her a [[http://www.fightabase.com/images/chars/game/blackw_rd.jpg manly looking upper body]]. Though she still has a prominent hourglass figure which the costume on. [[http://www.vazcomics.org/mamend/png/ring0059.png When she takes it off]] at the end of her story she's shown to be undeniably feminine looking and sounding, wearing leotard cut to resemble a training bra and thong.
* [[WildMan Rila]] [[NatureHero Estansia]] from the FightingGame ''VideoGame/{{Breakers}}'' is an eccentric wild woman a who fights in [[LeotardOfPower a sleeveless backless leotard]] and greaves, which show off her buff physique and ample chest.
* Most depictions of Raijin, the [[ShockAndAwe thunder god]] from Myth/JapaneseMythology portray him as fat or muscular but always with a demonic face. In ''[[VideoGame/MuramasaTheDemonBlade Muramasa: The Demon Blade]]'', Raijin [[GenderFlip is instead presented as a woman]] with an absurdly muscular body. She also has the complimentary bust size, a huge rear, massive thighs, and [[{{Stripperiffic}} little clothing]] to help showcase it. [[TinyGuyHugeGirl By comparison]], her [[GodCouple romantic partner]] [[BlowYouAway Fujin]] looks like an imp.
* Akiko Daimon from ''VideoGame/TaisenHotGimmickForever'', a mahjong game where defeating an opponent gives the player the option to punish them which, male or female, usually involves the character [[StripPoker having to strip]]. Akiko is a muscular girl wearing just a sports bra and thong and is also a member of her school's bodybuilding club. For her punishment the player can have her do bench presses topless, or flexing her biceps which causes her [[WardrobeMalfunction sports bra to tear]].
* Meryl Silverburgh, as of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots''. She made her first appearance in VideoGame/{{M|etalGearSolid}}GS1 where she was slender but in VideoGame/{{M|etalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots}}GS4 she's a lot sturdier with broad shoulders and well built arms, both traits are shown off when she's in her wedding dress getting married to Johnny, who's been in love with her since [=MGS=]1.
* [[http://www.fightersgeneration.com/characters4/untitledL.JPG Rachel]] from ''VideoGame/BattleArenaToshinden 3''. She's Tracy's [[SeparatedAtBirth long lost twin sister]] but aside from [[AmbiguouslyBrown skin color]] both fighters look radically different. Tracy is lanky and petite while Rachel is very bulky (least her upper body), and sports a pair of breasts that are on the verge of spilling out of her [[{{Stripperiffic}} one-size-too-small]] [[OfCorsetsSexy bustier]].
* The female Barbarian from ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' a red-headed warrior who is incredible tall and muscular much like her male counterpart. The two main differences are that she's a lot younger than the male barbarian, who's an old man, and her armor sets, especially in the official art for the game tends to be slightly more sexualized. Of course the latter two make her no less of an [[http://i.imgur.com/AlR0syC.jpg intimidating looking woman]].
** This generic character was the basis for the ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' hero Sonya. Sonya shares the broad strokes of her appearance with both her direct inspiration and the [[Comicbook/RedSonja more famous character]] that she was inspired by and named after.
* Almost every MMORPG or HighFantasy RolePlayingGame that features female orcs as a playable characters will usually depict them in the concept art as extremely muscular, usually [[BoobsOfSteel busty]], and wearing more or less ([[{{Stripperiffic}} usually less]]) clothing than their human counterparts. The downside being that they usually have [[{{Butterface}} faces that may]] detract some people. The prominent examples come from ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' ([[http://i.imgur.com/Iax8THE.jpg see here]]) and ''{{VideoGame/Lineage 2}}'' ([[http://i.imgur.com/fIFWJxz.jpg see here]]).
* Angela Belti from ''VideoGame/PowerInstinct'' was originally meant to be unattractive in the first game, as she was extremely muscular, drawn with a [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/piangela-1_2909.png very manly face,]] and even [[LarynxDissonance voiced by a male employee of Atlus]]. This changed in the sequel and games onward were she is drawn with more feminine features while still retaining her [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090801164821/powerinstinct/images/e/ef/Angela_bonnou.jpg muscular physique]], has a female voice (albeit a deep one) and given a love interest, Sahad.
* Aveline Vallen from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' is tall, has muscular arms, and broad shoulders. Most people find her her intimidating and off-putting, with the exception of her first and potentially second husband. Also, PlayerCharacter Hawke can try to romance her, but [[JustFriends she'll shoot Hawke down]].
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', a female Qunari Inquisitor is noticeably taller and muscular than just about everyone else, and [[ButchLesbian Sera's]] train of thought [[DistractedByTheSexy visibly derails]] the first time she meets her. Sometimes the only thing she'll be able to say is "...woof". Same goes for Cassandra, who is physically imposing and as Sera says, "well fit" and if not in a romance she will try it with her.
* The Amazon from ''VideoGame/DragonsCrown'' is a blonde [[AnAxeToGrind axe wielding warrior]] who fights in a literal ChainmailBikini that seems one size too small. While she's muscular all over, her legs are especially big and most of her stances and movements are design to [[ShesGotLegs emphasis them]].
* Several games that allow for a [[CharacterCustomization Create-A-Character]] feature usually provide players with the option to create Amazonian Beauties of their own.
** For example, ''VideoGame/RumbleRoses XX'' has a character editor that allows the player to determine parameters such as weight by performing certain actions in a match. One of these sliders allowed you to muscle up the girls.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', when Cloud cross-dresses, he is mistaken for one of these by a couple background [=NPCs=]. In the words of one of them: "Ooh, hard! You work out?"
* The ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' franchise's protagonist Samus Aran has zig-zagged this trope. The official ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' player's guide describes her as "strong and muscular," standing 6'3" and weighing in at 198 pounds, and when her suit comes off at the end of the game revealing Samus in her cropped halter top and panties, she certainly looks it. But while ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion'' had [[http://i.imgur.com/ECCbIJT.png?1 an unlockable image]] of a very buff Samus in that same revealing outfit, in later ''Metroid'' games Samus' muscles disappeared almost completely, and ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'' portrayed her as over a foot shorter than in previous installments, so that she couldn't fit in her own power suit. Then concept art for ''VideoGame/MetroidSamusReturns'' depicted Samus with a more solid build, bringing things full circle.
* From ''VideoGame/GoldenAxe '' franchises there's [[http://archive.kontek.net/goldenaxe.classicgaming.gamespy.com/daimages/Images2/frontcover1.jpg Tyris Flare]] and [[http://www.segagagadomain.com/megadrive3/goldenaxe3-inst-2.jpg Sarah Barn]]. Both muscular women who fight monsters [[{{Stripperiffic}} wearing just bikinis]].
* ''VideoGame/SenranKagura'''s [[http://imgur.com/wkjFT79 Daidouji]] is extremely muscular. While her outfit does cover most of her body it leaves her torso exposed, which shows off her very large breasts, barely supported by a {{sarashi}}, and her well-defined abs.
* While ''VideoGame/TouhouProject'' doesn't really have any female muscularity ranking itself, the resident physical brawlers Hong Meiling and Yuugi Hoshiguma are often depicted as huge, extremely muscular women (Yuugi moreso than Meiling, as she's an oni).
** ''VideoGame/{{MUGEN}}'' has Sendai Hakurei no Miko, a fan-made character that is supposed to be the shrine maiden that was in service before Reimu (or even her mother), who is also depicted as an extremely muscular woman.
* Can be done with a female Sole Survivor in ''[[VideoGame/{{Fallout4}} Fallout 4]]'' thanks to the character editor allowing you to change your body's appearance between skinny, muscular, and fat. You can create a very muscular woman who'll receive a lot of positive attention from any of the available romantic interests.
* Lyris [[MeaningfulName Titanborn]] from ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline'' a muscular Nord half-giant. Despite towering most characters in the game your other companions are attracted to her.
* The Gerudo in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. When fully grown, they stand at an impressive eight feet tall, sporting visible abs and muscled biceps. Their fashion is also largely based off of Arabic belly dancer outfits, and as such, is quite revealing. To top it off, the Gerudo Desert is filled with [[AmazonChaser Hylian men]] hoping to land themselves a Gerudo bride, even though [[TinyGuyHugeGirl any one of these women are guaranteed to tower over them]].

* Zona from ''Webcomic/TheChallengesOfZona'' is a muscular and tall warrior woman who wears a top that shows off a lot of {{underboob|s}} and a loin cloth. It's was love at first sight for the protagonist, who describes her as a "a six-foot plus goddess with a Ms. Olympia body".
* Almost every superheroine in ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'' with some standouts mentions below. Most of them are at least athletically built and busty and there's a lot of {{fanservice}} that shows off that fact. The main character is one of the few superheroines who has neither of those traits and is very self-conscious about it.
** Maxima is a tall, muscular [[ChromeChampion golden skinned superheroine]] who is extremely sensitive about her good looks because she feels men treat her like an exotic sex doll.
** Anvil is taller and even more muscular, but still attractive enough to get hit on by the resident LovableSexManiac. He even mentions her large muscles as an attractive feature. She provide a bit of fanservice, as one of the wallpapers for the series focuses on her sunbathing.
*** Subverted in a more recent storyline, where Anvil admits she's not excited about an upcoming promotional photo shoot because she's been [[NoManWantsAnAmazon bullied about her body before]]. WordOfGod says that this is why Anvil tries to dress as feminine as possible and sports long hair; she's insecure about her body being seen as "manly".
* Heather from ''Webcomic/{{Spinnerette}}'' got a SuperPhysique complete with large breasts and "girl abs" after getting into a FreakLabAccident that gave her four extra arms and some superpowers. She decides to become the title heroine, and fights crime with an outfit that covers most of her body but still manages to be very revealing due to its [[SensualSpandex form-fitting nature]] so her muscles and curves are quite visible.
* In ''Webcomic/SlimyThief'' there's the tall, muscular, ChainmailBikini-wearing [[http://slimythief.com/?p=211 Amazon]] who's a recurring character. Later on in a {{Crossover}} arc, the character Red is introduced. She's another tall, muscular female warrior, but goes even further by being bare-breasted the whole time.
* [[http://www.dcmstudiosonline.com/ David C. Matthews]] has [[http://www.dcmstudiosonline.com/more_char/index.html quite a few of 'em]] as leads to a couple of his webcomics. All of them hyper-muscular yet busty with feminine faces. They're either scantly-clad or even if they are wearing something modest, it's always [[FormFittingWardrobe depicted as very tight fitting]]. For starters, there's Webcomic/{{Tetsuko}} (which contains a lot of explicit nudity), ''Webcomic/ContestJitters'', ''Webcomic/SatinSteele'', and ''[[http://www.dcmstudiosonline.com/dyna/ Dyna the Damsel Dynamo]]''.
** This trope is {{deconstructed|Trope}} in the case of ''Webcomic/{{Tetsuko}}'' and ''Webcomic/ContestJitters''. Despite being the titular characters and MsFanservice of their respective comics, not everyone finds either protagonist very attractive, [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon especially their love interests]]. Tetsuko's boyfriend threatens to leave her [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon because she's more muscular than him]], while Janet's boyfriend in ''Webcomic/ContestJitters'' (a prequel to ''Satin'') likens having sex with her to "[[BrawnHilda fucking a man with tits]]". Though, it's common in the genre to cast the first boyfriend as a StrawCritic who doesn't find women with muscles appealing.
* Gogo from ''Webcomic/{{Bomango}}'' [[ZigZaggingTrope occasionally]]. She's very muscular and busty. Multiple characters in series find her physically attractive, including the main character, she's been depicted wearing little to no clothing in the comic and bonus art. However, she has poor hygiene, something that explicitly is pointed out and shown throughout the series.
* ''Webcomic/BloominFaeries'' has Nadia. A tall muscular blonde beauty who stands tall over nearly everyone else even after [[GenderBender being turned into a woman]]. Baby the Orc would also count, though she wasn't so much the beauty until sleeping with the cursed sir Thane and gaining great looks to go with her size and strength.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Exiern}}'', Typhan-Nee, an unrepentant barbarian, gets gender-bent by an evil wizard very early in the comics (since the whole theme is "transgender barbarian"). The resulting woman, "Tiffany", is every bit the powerfully-built able combatant she was when she was still a man... as long as his/her rather misogynistic views don't synergize with the curse and make her a weakling. Even other barbarian women are envious of Typhan-Nee/Tiffany's looks, as Tiffany's brother's mate attests.
* Many characters in ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' due to drow gender roles and sexual dimorphism being the inverse of with humans, but post-timeskip Ariel gets several mentions of how attractive she is with her incredible [[StatuesqueStunner height]] and musculature, which results in a hilariously awkward moment when she meets a former enemy for the first time in 15 years and he's [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=10088 immediately distracted by her nice butt]].
* In ''WebComic/HarkAVagrant'''s [[http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=346 take]] on the Literature/{{Cinderella}} fairytale, the Fairy Godmother dolls Cinderella up so she's attractive to the prince by giving her long flowing hair, a new beautiful dress and shoes, and ''[[GrowingMusclesSequence making her extremely buff]]''. This catches the attention of the bodybuilder prince, and they work out together instead of dance.

* Zuzana Light aka [[https://www.youtube.com/user/zuzkalight "Zuzka"]] and former "[=BodyRock=] Chick". While her clothing style isn't outside the realm of athletic gear, you'd be hard pressed to find her wearing anything that doesn't show off her [[BareYourMidriff abs]] and sizable cleavage and that isn't [[SensualSpandex extremely snug]] from the waist down. When she was part of Body Rock, the [[MaleGaze provocative angles]] all of her videos were shot in added to this image. (After getting her new channel, this aspect of Zuzka's videos has been toned down a bit.)
** Lisa-Marie Zbozen, the new [[https://www.youtube.com/user/charliejames1975 "BodyRock Chick"]] (also: the new paramour of Zuzka's ex-husband). Lisa-Marie was less endowed when she started working as Zuzka's replacement, but one elective surgery later she's more or less a carbon copy of the former face of the channel, including the MaleGaze poses.
* Hippolyta of the Literature/WhateleyUniverse is six feet tall and muscular. She wears tight, skimpy outfits even though she doesn't like guys ogling her. (She does, however like [[LesYay girls]] ogling her. That's why she is in Poe cottage.)

* While the [[ClassyCatBurglar Black Cat]] in the ComicBook/SpiderMan comics is usually traditionally femininely shaped, in ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries''', thanks to a SuperSerum similar to the one used in the creation of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, she gains the ability to morph into a taller, muscular, uninhibited FemmeFatale with increased human reflexes and strength clad in a very [[FormFittingWardrobe skin-tight]] SpyCatsuit (and of course like the comics, [[DatingCatwoman there was chemistry between her and Spider-Man]]).
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueCrisisOnTwoEarths'' features Mary Marvel's EvilCounterpart from an AlternateUniverse, Superwoman, who is shown with a muscular yet curvaceous build. Between this, [[LeotardOfPower her]] [[CombatStilettos outfit]], [[TheBaroness the dominatrix-like attitude]], her [[FauxAffablyEvil unrepentant]] [[AxCrazy insanity]], {{U|nresolvedSexualTension}}ST-''[[TakeThatKiss oozing]]'' [[VillainousCrush scenes]] with Batman, the DesignatedGirlFight with Wonder Woman, and the voice of Creator/GinaTorres (well-known for playing [[Series/{{Firefly}} two other]] [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague warrior women]]), she's a bona-fide Amazonian Beauty.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBHfvIWRxe4 The]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uktOkpqtL3o episode]] "Beef" from ''WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian'' has Princess Candy trying to woo away a potential suitor from the tall and muscular [[MeaningfulName Bicepia]] the Warrior Woman by eating [[AppliedPhlebotinum magic broccoli]] to gain a similar figure. However, this begins to go out the window as Candy digests more and more broccoli; she grows more and more buff, but her [[{{Gonk}} beauty]] and [[DumbMuscle brains]] quickly get thrown onto the backburner.
* "Worth Her Weight In Gold" from the ''Film/PoliceAcademy'' [[AnimatedAdaptation cartoon]] gives us the the aptly-named [[PunnyName Phoenix Amazona]], [[WorldsStrongestMan The World's Strongest]] [[GenderFlip Woman]]. Also pulls triple-duty as a GeniusBruiser (seeing as she's the mastermind ''and'' muscle behind a gold smuggling operation) and StatuesqueStunner. [[EvilIsSexy Oh, and she's a criminal.]] In fact, Amazona, knowing that the cops are on her tail, [[FemmeFatale actually invokes her appeal]] to string along the cowardly and smitten-at-first-sight Carl Sweetchuck, flirting with him (including addressing him by pet names and showing up for a "date" in [[ShowSomeLeg a slinky]] {{purple|IsPowerful}} dress) and sending him on errands to unknowingly do the dirty work for her as she tries to cover her tracks.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', the Amazonians, from the planet Amazonia, are a race of gigantic, muscular, [[NubileSavage scantily-clad tribal women]]. There were male Amazonians but they all died out due to [[OutWithABang crushed pelvises from sex]], or, as they call it, snu-snu. Both Fry and Zapp were equally horrified and [[AllMenArePerverts turned on]] when they received the sentence of [[OutWithABang death by snu-snu]]. Kif is just plain horrified.
** [[TemporaryBulkChange Leela and Amy become this]] in "[[Recap/FuturamaS7E6TheButterjunkEffect The Butterjunk Effect]]" due to nectar, a [[FantasticDrug steroid-like substance]]. Fry and Kif have a problem with their addiction, though it's more because of their new-found personality traits (distant, aggressive, etc) than their appearance. In fact, Fry seems pretty happy when he ends up sleeping with both of them.
* In ''WesternAnimation/BillAndTedsExcellentAdventures'' it's revealed that the arms of the famed [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus_de_milo Venus de Milo]] sculpture were actually very muscular because the sculptor based the statue off his very muscular amazonian girlfriend whom he is smitten over because of her muscles and strength. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJ11qtcwMIs Bill and Ted are pretty impressed as well]].
* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''; the Scotsman and his wife sired several dozens of daughters during the TimeSkip leading to Season 5. All of them having grown into tall brawny redheads who [[MiniDressOfPower go into battle wearing mini dresses]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Homer buys a valuable weight-lifting set from a garage sale, and Marge develops anxiety problems due to an encounter with a mugger. Marge eventually starts using the weight-lifting set and gains not only her confidence back, but also a nice muscular body. Homer approves of it at first ("It's like I'm married to Film/{{Shaft}}!"), but then Marge gets hooked on steroids and grows obsessed with getting stronger, turning her into a violent BrawnHilda.
* In ''WesternAnimation/EekTheCat'', Sharky has a crush on a muscular female [[CaptainErsatz "Patriotic]] [[Series/AmericanGladiators Warrior"]] named "Platinum".
* Korra from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' has a realistically proportioned athlete's build with a well toned back and arms, and she looks realistically stocky (especially by animated standards, and has a note on her model sheet specifically telling the animators not to draw her legs too skinny). This is why she is considered attractive by at least three male [[spoiler:and as of the finale, one [[BiTheWay female]]]] characters in the series. Unlike most examples she is quite short.
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': Although he's quite happy having a long-distance relationship with what's effectively a female version of himself (that is, chubby), Soos had a picture of a muscular woman in a bikini come out of the Mailbox That Knows Everything when he asked it about his dream woman.
