->''"Sagat's always kickin', kickin' is for girls''
->''I bet you Chun-Li kicks 'cause Chun-Li can't do curls"''
-->-- "[[ExtremityExtremist Balrog]] 24/7", '''[[RockOpera Man Factory]]'''

A character (AlwaysFemale, hence the name) who fights almost entirely with kicks for the purpose of [[ShesGotLegs showing off her legs]]. She may occasionally throw a punch, but kicking is her primary means of offense. Why do some fighters do this? Perhaps it's because kicks have better range, or feet with shoes are less sensitive to pain than bare hands, or they have stronger legs than arms. However, in her case it's partly due to the RuleOfSexy.

In reality, women [[note]] and most men who don't explicitly aim to become a TopHeavyGuy - after all, legs carry more weight and get more use by default[[/note]] do generally have much stronger lower bodies than upper bodies, which means that they're naturally more inclined to use kicks than punches. Also, as the first instinct of any attacker is to [[StandardFemaleGrabArea bind or otherwise incapacitate the arms]] (and leave the legs relatively free so that you don't have to carry her), it's quite practical to deal damage with your means of locomotion. And ''every'' girl knows the classic "[[GroinAttack kick 'em in the nuts]]" move for self-defense--it can hurt women too, by the way.

Primarily an ActionGirl trope. A sub-trope of ExtremityExtremist, one that requires the character is female, that her fighting style is almost entirely kicks, and she has an essence of {{Fanservice}} to her kicking as well. Sometimes (but not always) have [[AmazonianBeauty strapping lower bodies]] as a result of the reliance on and muscular development of their legs. See also WaifFu, and contrast WhiteMagicianGirl. Compare RoundhouseKick.

Compare CombatStilettos and WithMyHandsTied, where this trope may sometimes come into play when the other said tropes as used.

[[folder:Advertising]]
* According to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Jfzh2s3jlE the commercial]] for ''Franchise/DeadOrAlive 3'' the reason one gamer plays it is "She kicks high."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Ex-lieutenant Mashiro has kicks so powerful a single [[CallingYourAttacks "Mashiro Kiiiick!"]] can destroy a gigantic [[TheHeartless Hollow]]. When going berserk through Hollowfication in "Turn Back The Pendulum", Captain Shinji Hirako had to block her kicks with his sword, which didn't even scratch her shoes. She can fire even freaking [[KamehameHadouken Ceros]] with her kicks.
* Crystal from ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' primarily used kicks to throw her Pokeballs instead of using her hands. This was due to at one time being unable to use her arms and hands for the task.
* Calynn from ''LightNovel/GatheringTheEnchanted'' uses leg armor to enhance the power of her kicks. She uses her feet as her only weapon.
* Kisara Nanjo from ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' is trained in Tae Kwon Do, a kick-heavy fighting style.
* Inner Moka from ''Manga/RosarioToVampire''. She defeats most of her battles with [[CurbStompBattle one single kick]]! [[spoiler:[[GenerationXerox She got it from her mom]] Akasha Bloodriver, the strongest vampire of all time (in that universe).]]
* [[ActionGirl Lenalee Lee]] of ''Manga/DGrayMan'' fights exclusively with kicks, due to her EmpathicWeapon being a pair of supernaturally empowered boots.
* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''
** The Combat {{Cyborg}} Nove, who was introduced in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS''. While she will occasionally use punches, most of her attacks are kicks. This is probably done to contrast her to the mostly punching Subaru, [[spoiler:who is [[CainAndAbel the Abel to her Cain]]]].
** ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'' gives us KungFuKid Miura. While she uses punches when needed, the majority of her special moves are kick-based, and her [[EmpathicWeapon Armed Device]] is a pair of [[ArmedLegs armored boots]] that enhances her kicks.
* Several female characters from ''Manga/OnePiece''. [=CP9=] member Kalifa, anime-only character Arabelle, and the Warlord of the Sea Boa Hancock.
** Another example will be the Okama Kenpo and the Newkama Kenpo, two martial arts practiced by [[{{Transsexual}} men with hearts of women]] (and some women with hearts of men, probably) which rely heavily on kicks.
** It's not known if Doflamingo's lacky Dellinger is trans-anything but he is [[SissyVillain rather effeminate]], uses the girlish exclamation [[{{Squee}} "Kyaaa!"]] and wears high heels with booty shorts.
* Being a member of a race of incredibly strong humans, Morgianna from ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic'' has kicks that can shatter rock and instantly knock out tigers (a manga by the same author of ''Manga/SumomoMoMomoMo'').
* ''Manga/AngelDensetsu'''s Ryoko's favorite move is a high kick, though it's far from her only attack.
* In the ''Manga/TriGun'' movie, Amelia kicks the crap out of two bounty hunters to the point that they try to grab her legs to stop her. Later, though, like most characters in the series, she mostly uses her gun.
* Ringo in ''Manga/BananaNoNana'' has, for lack of a better word, the superpower of incredibly strong legs. This results in fast running, high jumps, and, of course, this trope, typically applied directly to the face at maximum power.
* In ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' spin-off manga ''Shikkoku no Hana'', a highschool girl named Tsukimori Azusa has gained contractor ability in a form of super strong legs. She proceeded to leap through city blocks InASingleBound and [[{{Gorn}} kick people]] [[LudicrousGibs apart]].
* Franchise/SailorMoon's [[http://www.wikimoon.org/index.php?title=Sailor_Moon_Kick Sailor Moon Kick.]] More prominently, Sailor Venus's Sailor V Kick, which she employed quite often in ''Manga/CodenameSailorV''.
* ''Anime/AyanesHighKick'' is about [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly what it says.]] Though it isn't by choice, since Ayane aspires to become a pro wrestler, but gets duped into taking up kickboxing instead, by her [[TricksterMentor unscrupulous coach]], Kunimitsu.
* Subverted in ''LightNovel/IsThisAZombie'' you'd expect a Mystletainn Kick to be, well, [[ShapedLikeItself a kick]], but...
-->'''Anyone being hit with it''': "[[PhraseCatcher THAT'S NOT A KICK!!!!!]]
* Sen Yarizui the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Ice Witch]] from ''LightNovel/BenTo''. While the other fighting girls use their fists or {{Improvised Weapon}}s of various sorts, she fights almost exclusively with kicks.
* Honoka/Cure White of ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure'' was the kicking half of the team. [[http://youtu.be/xlXqMqC9g_k Pretty noticeable in the Max Heart OP]]: Nagisa/Cure Black throws many punches but kicks only once or twice, whereas Honoka relays only on kicks to keep her opponents away.
** Her {{Expy}} Mai Mishou/Cure Egret/Cure Windy from ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar'' goes the same way.
** The ''Anime/FreshPrettyCure'' have even an attack called "[Double/Trio/Quartet] Precure Kick", but Miki/Cure Berry is the kick specialist.
** Nao/Cure March from ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure''. [[spoiler:Her strongest attack "March Shoot Impact"]], is a kick!
* ''Anime/VariableGeo'': Kaori may not look it, but she's a master of Tae Kwon Do and one of the top competitors in the VG tournament; which [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Bj_k9WLc-I she demonstrates in her opening match.]]
* Misao from Manga/RurouniKenshin has a signature joke move which consist of a flying kick.
* Annie Leonhart from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' uses an unique fighting style, influenced heavily by Muay Thai. She focuses primarily on kicks, allowing her to quickly disable larger and stronger opponents. It doubles as FridgeBrilliance, since the military's primary equipment depends so much on having incredible leg strength and flexibility.
* Syal Fineded in ''Manga/MotherKeeper'' uses a variety of weapons and fighting styles, but usually she'll get some kicks in and they're her main weapon against most enemies.
* [[NiceGirl Enju]] [[AllLovingHero Aihara]] in ''LightNovel/BlackBullet'' fights with her feet when combating the Gastrea. Justified, as the soles and the tip of the boots she wears are made of Varanium, and she's a [[AnimalMotifs Rabbit-Type]] Cursed Child, making her exceptionally good at jumping and kicking.
** It's also implied the reason she fights strictly with her feet is because [[TechnicalPacifist she absolutely refuses to kill a human being]] and want to fight the Gastrea at the same time.
* Tsubasa Kazanari from ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'' is primarily a swordswoman, but her fighting style also involves {{Capoeira}}-like spin-kicks with ArmedLegs. She also performs drop kicks, but with a {{BFS}} below her foot (heavy emphasis on "big"). She rarely uses her arms without using her sword.
* Lucy Heartfilia from ''Manga/FairyTail'' usually summons her Celestial Spirits or uses her whip in a fight, but when she goes unarmed she usually uses mainly kicks. One of her attacks is even called "[[{{Anticlimax}} LUCY KICK]]!!!". Her kicks are sometimes PlayedForLaughs, but have also shown usefulness in real battle.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comics]]
* Envy Adams, from ''Comicbook/ScottPilgrim''.
* When not using bladed weapons, Miho of ''Comicbook/SinCity'' fame kicks her way through {{Mooks}}.
* The female version of Judomaster in Franchise/TheDCU used a lot of kicks in her fighting (exactly the way that judo doesn't).
* Comicbook/{{Mystique}} has a pretty wide range of skills, but artists just ''love'' to show off her long blue legs by having her do all kinds of impossible kicks.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Fiction]]
* ''FanFic/TheGoodTheBadAndTheDemon'' has [[VideoGame/SoulHackers Hitomi Toni]] as this example, considering that [[AdaptationalBadass she isn't badass in her work, but in the fanfic itself]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* ''High-Kick Girl''. She... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin kicks high]].
* Zen in ''Film/{{Chocolate}}''.
* Paula Garces in ''Film/{{Clockstoppers}}'' as Francesca kicks Dr Dopler right in the face, and it has a lot more effect than hitting him - turns out [[IKnowMortalKombat she knows ballet]]. It wouldn't be worthwhile mentioning if they didn't threaten him with doing it again.
* B-movie queen Cynthia Rothrock has made her career around flipping about and kicking bad guys.
* Played for laughs in ''Film/ScaryMovie 2''. When the girls go all AngelsPose on the butler, Brenda goes crazy with a flurry of kicks...and burns her shoe off.
* In ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', Mystique chokes out one of her victims. With one foot. Executing perfect martial arts form. And casually looking through his mail, just to show off how good she is at this.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Calynn from ''LightNovel/GatheringTheEnchanted'' has literal feet of steel.
* Kylaia Al Jmaa from Creator/TamoraPierce's Literature/TortallUniverse short story ''Student of Ostriches''. She starts developing her self-taught fighting style by watching ostriches kicking a wild dog (although she does develop and use techniques other than kicks).
* Ninette from ''[[Literature/ElementalMasters Reserved For The Cat]]'' borders on this when she kicks an attacker into a wall. Justifiable because ballet requires both strong legs and precise movements with them.
* Literature/KateDaniels prefers to fight with a saber most of the time, but when she and the local head Werelion engage in some GoodOldFisticuffs, she really prefers kicking because it's the only thing she's got that can put a dent in his regeneration.
* The [[Literature/HereticsOfDune Honored Matres]] in the ''Franchise/{{Dune}}'' universe have this as their signature style of unarmed combat, and have developed it to the point where a single kick can be instantly lethal. They are also, for reasons connected with specific training and possibly selective breeding, extremely fast. ''Some'' of the [[Literature/ChapterhouseDune best Bene Gesserit adepts are a match for them]], but that's about it.
* In [[AlanDeanFoster Bloodhype]] protagonist Kitten Kai Sung throws a knee-capping kick from a sitting position, pretty much giving away the fact she is a trained agent.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Kat in ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo''.
* In ''Series/{{Batman}}'', Batgirl (played by trained ballerina Yvonne Craig) never threw punches, relying on kicks and the occasional ImprovisedWeapon.
* Lori from ''Series/BigWolfOnCampus'' took kickboxing, so that was how she usually fought.
* When [[MsFanservice Seven of Nine]] is kidnapped to fight in a gladiatorial arena in the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode "Tsunkatse", her fighting style included rather more kicks than most of the other combatants seen on-screen.
* In ''Series/{{Alias}}'', Sydney Bristow is primarily a kickboxer. One episode lampshades this very trope when her opponent (played by Quentin Tarantino), who is primarily a pugilist, observes that the problem with kick boxers is that they lack the upper body strength for either doling out or taking powerful punches. While Sydney accepts his criticism as valid, she eventually manages to prove that he can't take the kicks of a really good kick boxer either.
* Although she's generally a well-rounded fighter, Sarah on ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' has strong shades of Kick Chick. Whether or not she fights as a Kick Chick usually boils down to RuleOfSexy and how fanservice-y the writers want a particular fight scene to be.
* Amy in ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger''. And by extension, Shelby in ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge.''
* Purdey of ''Series/TheNewAvengers has a long, strong and deadly pair of legs.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* One of Wrestling/TrishStratus' finishers was a roundhouse kick dubbed the Chick Kick.
* When Wrestling/MickieJames was playing Trish's fan/stalker and was copying all of her moves, she called it the Mick Kick. The Long Kiss Goodnight finisher also used by Mickie James was a vicious spin kick to the back of the head. She occasionally still uses it.
* In Wrestling/AllJapanWomensProWrestling, Toshiyo Yamada and Yumiko Hotta used a lot of kicks.
* Wrestling/StacyKeibler, though she's better known for a leg ''choke'' than a kick.
* Joshi wrestler Kana. Like Yumiko Hotta, she's also known for being extremely stiff with them.
* Wrestling/SaraDelRey, of Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}}, Wrestling/{{CHIKARA}}, Wrestling/RingOfHonor and many other promotions, uses the Koppo Kick a lot, particularly against male opponents.
* [[Wrestling/LayCool Layla El]] uses various kicks as signature moves and in 2012 developed a kick to the head called The Bombshell as a Finishing Move.
* Anarchy Championship Wrestling and IWA Texas put Mia Yim together with ACH to form Team Kick![[OffScreenMomentOfAwesome ...for a dark match]], but it was aptly named. Both Wrestling/DaizeeHaze and [[Wrestling/BlackRose La Rosa Negra]] are among those who tried their feet at trading kicks with Yim and lost horribly.
* Evie stands out this way on Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}}, whose roster is largely defined by pinning combinations, submission holds and head drops
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''Franchise/StreetFighter''
** The possible TropeCodifier: [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Chun-Li]], pictured above.
*** Strangely enough, she had some effective (and pretty hard) punches in both 2 and the Alpha games. It wasn't until 3 that her "legs that took down an organization" status really took hold, with most of her punches replaced by ineffective/silly looking chops or slaps. In particular, her crouch hard punch took a ''big'' hit.
** Elena from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII'' takes it another step by ''[[ExtremityExtremist not ever using her hands]]'' (being a DanceBattler and practitioner of UsefulNotes/{{Capoeira}}). She even ''throws'' with her legs.
** Newcomer Juri in ''Super VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'', is a Tae Kwon Do prodigy. She even manages KiAttacks with her feet. Her fierce punch command is also a kick.
** Blair Dame from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterEX''.
* ''VideoGame/VirtuaFighter''
** Included in Sarah Bryant's arsenal are the knee, jumping knee, jumping spin kick, legsweep, flamengo stance kicks, kickflip, and the beat gatling throw.
** [[AnimeChineseGirl Pai-Chan]] mainly uses kicking attacks in TheAnimeOfTheGame. However, the bad guys catch up with her fighting style, and [[FauxActionGirl she's ended up useless]] in any non-{{mook|s}} battle. More exactly, Pai's Enseiken fighting style is said in-TV series to be useless in some battle conditions. The GenreSavvy BigBad, Liu Kowloon is also a martial artist and knows about this very well -- often sending out non-Mooks that are specially trained into creating said conditions and neutralising [[RunawayFiancee Pai]] [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty so they can bring her back to him]] (there's even a whole scene in the beginning in which Kowloon explains this to Pai). Said conditions don't apply in the games for obvious reasons, so she retains her fighting competence.
* Wakaba from ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'' does this, and her personal weapon is a pair of shin guards to protect her legs.
* Carmelita Fox has this in ''VideoGame/Sly3HonorAmongThieves'' as a secondary attack option when enemies get too close for her to effectively employ her [[FamilyFriendlyFirearms shock pistol]]. Her roundhouse kick is powerful enough to send mooks twice her size flying several feet.
* Chie Satonaka from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' ''lives'' this trope. Taking out items is the only thing she'll do with her hands, but beyond that, attacking, invocation, or even ''defending'' are all done with her legs. HWA-TAAAAAAAA!
* In the character creation mode for ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soulcalibur III]]'', the Grieve Edge weapon is essentially a metal shoe with a blade attached to it. Although none of the characters in the main storyline use it, the busty shopkeeper Valeria is an unlockable character who uses this weapon.
* Lucia from the third ''VideoGame/FinalFight'' game almost exclusively uses kicks.
* [[VisualNovel/{{Kanon}} Nayuki Minase]] (awake) from ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'' fights [[ExtremityExtremist exclusively with kicks]], given that she's the [[IKnowMaddenKombat captain of the school's track team]].
* Sheva of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'' mainly uses kicks as her physical attacks, in contrast to Chris, who uses his ridiculously large arms for all his melee moves.
** Also to contrast Chris, Jill uses kick physicals but are straighter than Sheva's acrobatics.
* ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'':
** [[{{bifauxnen}} King]] is the series' foremost example, being a practicioner of the Nak Muay style of kickboxing. While her punches consists of jabs, hooks, and elbow strikes that inflict light damage, her kicks are generally stronger and are her chief means of attack. Even her [[KiAttacks "Venom Strike"]] and [[SpamAttack "Phantom Venom"]] are performed with her legs.
** May Lee's a Taekwondo practitioner like her instructor and idol [[VideoGame/FatalFury Kim Kaphwan.]]
** Ditto Chae Lim, of ''KOF'''s SpinOff AlternateContinuity ''Maximum Impact''. As a matter of fact, she fights so much like Kim, that she might as well be his DistaffCounterpart. When Kim appeared in the sequel, they had to readjust her moves so that she fought at least a ''little'' differently from her teacher.
* ''[[VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo Advanced V.G. II]]'':
** Kaori Yanase is ''V.G's'' equivalent of [[Characters/ArtOfFighting King]], and even performs her KiAttacks through her legs. Though Kaori is a practitioner of Taekwondo, rather than Nak Muay.
** [[AloofDarkhairedGirl Kyoko]] [[LadyOfWar Kirishima's]] are also lethal weapons, as her leg reach and her attack speed allow her to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoY0pT4fcqU whip out infintes]], once she's mastered.
* Two girls from ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart'' fight with kick based styles: Tsuzura Saki and Inuwaka Akane. While Saki has some punches in her arsenal, Akane relies on kicks exclusively.
* Eve from ''VideoGame/DaemonBride'' is a miniskirted dominatrix rock singer who fights by kicking with blades on her boots. She throws KiAttacks from her legs as well. Those blades were actually the Demon she made contract with and she abuses him like a dominatrix, said Demon (Beelzebub) doesn't seem to mind.
* Liu Yungmie from ''[[VideoGame/FightersHistory Fighter's History Dynamite]]'' is probably the very first FightingGame chick to kick with punch buttons, block with her legs, throw opponents with her legs, and send out KiAttacks with her legs.
* In the second ''VideoGame/NicktoonsUnite'' game, [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Sam Manson]] primarily uses kicks, as opposed to Danny, who prefers punches.
* Karin from ''VideoGame/EnchantedArms'' - her weapons are boots, and her techniques are either kicks, water elemental attacks, or healing skills.
* VideoGame/{{Iji}} uses either her {{BFG}} or her cybernetically-enhanced legs. She can kick enemy soldiers across the room.
* ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}''
** The Williams sisters do quite a bit of damage with their [[CombatStilettos high-heeled kicks]], but the real damage is done when they grab the opponent and [[MurderousThighs start breaking bones]].
** If you're not spinning together a near-endless series of sweeping Capoeira kicks from Christie Monteiro, you're doing it wrong.
* Reimi from ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheLastHope'' will flip-kick an enemy into the air for her close range attack, and has a special that delivers [[RapidFireFisticuffs Rapid-Fire Kicks]], but being TheArcher, she's predominantly a long-range character; It's a good Idea to [[GlassCannon keep her away from her opponents]].
* The [[CatGirl Nekomata]] in the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' series fight almost exclusively with kicks, only using their hands to deliver KiAttacks in most of the games.
* [[ClassyCatBurglar Rouge the Bat]] in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' uses attacks with kicks rather than punching. It becomes even more evident in ''Sonic Battle'' where her entire fighting style is centered around kicks that make her attacks both powerful and fast. She even gets an upgrade which allows her to dig using her legs.
* Wind goddess Fuuka from ''[[VideoGame/IzunaLegendOfTheUnemployedNinja Izuna 2: The Unemployed Ninja Returns]]''. The only available weapon type she can use is a set of boots, so she has little choice but to use her feet as weapons.
* Prier from ''VideoGame/LaPucelle'', to the extent she neglects to use (for the most part) the rod she's TRAINED how to fight with. Of course, with [[http://www.videogamesblogger.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/la-pucelle-tactics-heroine-prier.jpg legs like this...]]
* VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'s default fighting style combines this with GunsAkimbo, although her kicks [[ArmedLegs also fire guns in the enemy's face]].
* Homura Akai of ''[[Franchise/TokimekiMemorial Tokimeki Memorial 2]]'', whose signature attacks are the "Dragon Kick" and the "Kaichou Kick" (StudentCouncilPresident Kick), complete with CallingYourAttacks.
* [[ShesGotLegs Leggy]] [[DeadlyDoctor school nurse]] Kyoko Minazuki from ''VideoGame/RivalSchools''.
* Katt's fused form from ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireII'' trades away her SimpleStaff in favor of kicking enemies to death.
* Sun Sun Xiang in ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors 7''. Her LimitBreak even involves her stretching her bow using her legs.
** Dynasty Warriors 8's DLC includes the Sabaton moveset that allows you to apply this to any character.
* Renamon, though only theoretically female, in ''VideoGame/DigimonRumbleArena''. Aside from her Diamond Storm special, all of her attacks are kicks.
* Natasha from ''VideoGame/RustyHearts'' uses [[SheFu flip-heavy]] kicks along with guns.
* In ''VideoGame/AlienVsPredatorCapcom'', the female human character, Linn Kurosawa, is equipped with an automatic pistol and {{katana|sAreJustBetter}}, but also does more kicking than any other playable character.
* In the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fighting games, Reimu's physical attacks consist mostly of about two different strikes with her [[ZigZagPaperTassel gohei]] and tons of kicks.
* The Archer class in ''VideoGame/DragonNest'' can specialize in the Acrobat tree, which mixes in a lot of kicks with her standard arrow attacks.
* Ii Naotora of ''Videogame/SamuraiWarriors'' fights using bladed boots that she can perform some impressive kicks with, including a spinning dropkick that drills through the opposition.
* ''VideoGame/MadStalkerFullMetalForce'' has Silpheed, a [[HumongousMecha mecha]] that focuses on kicks for basic attacks due to its arms being a pair of {{Arm Cannon}}s and {{pilebunker}}s.
* ''VideoGame/Conception2ChildrenOfTheSevenStars'' has Serina Leaf, who uses a special mechanical boot that amplifies the power of her kicks and also allows her to float slightly off the ground when walking.
* In ''VideoGame/DoubleDragonNeon'', Linda's feet are her primary weapon when she's not [[WhipItGood wielding a whip]].
* ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline2'' introduced Jet Boots in Episode 3, which features nothing but kicks. If your character is female and they wield these, you're qualified. Additionally, a female character is seen wielding them in trailers and promotional art.
* Elly from ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' has kicks as her secondary attack with her [[SimpleStaff rods]] being primary and Ether attack spells being the FinishingMove.
* ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' has some female characters being this, most notably [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Trish]], [[VideoGame/StreetFighter Crimson Viper]], and [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil Jill Valentine]].
* Misa from ''VideoGame/MitsurugiKamuiHikae'' primarily uses her legs to perform hand-to-hand attacks.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]

* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' has Gaap spin-kicking at George with CombatStilettos.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Sasha from ''Literature/GreekNinja'', when not using her katana, resorts to kicks.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* To an extent, Blackarachnia from ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars''. In her first appearance, she let Cheetor shoot away all her ranged weapons as he charged at her, only to stick her foot out and kick him to the ground. Later, she KO'ed a [[ShapeshifterModeLock mode locked]] Dinobot by kicking him in the face repeatedly. Though she did not actually have hands for much of her life.
** Once she went [[MidSeasonUpgrade Transmetal]] she proceeded to [[TheWorfEffect kick the crap out]] of Rampage before webbing him up and throwing him [[TookALevelInBadass through a rocky cliff]].
** If she wasn't kicking, she was shooting with her back-mounted machine guns.
* In ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'', Comicbook/BlackCanary uses her legs ''way'' more than her fists when fighting. Not that she can't punch - she just uses sweeps and kicks noticeably more.
** Same with the eponymous character of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMysteryOfTheBatwoman''.
* Jade of ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' seems to have a penchant for launching into useless flying kick attacks and using her feet in combat.
* Leela in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' has a pretty hard punch, but she uses kicks a lot more. ''"[[{{Kiai}} Hiiiii-YA!]]"''
* [[BattleButler Mercy]] [[BodyguardBabes Graves]] from ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' almost exclusively uses high kicks, except for her gun. She also wears a [[DangerouslyShortSkirt short minidress]] which almost always gives the viewer a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2pBJSh4J2Y great view of her legs]] even when she isn't fighting. [[MagicSkirt No]] {{Panty Shot}}s, though.
* From the ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'' episode "Eligible Bachelors", Granny as a spy during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, throwing exactly one punch during her flashback, performing kicks the rest of the time.
* [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Applejack]] kicks apples out of trees for a living. She even named her hindlegs "Bucky [=McGillycuddy=]" and "Kicks [=McGee=]". Being a quadruped, it is a bit difficult to not be one.
* Ivy, from ''WesternAnimation/WhereOnEarthIsCarmenSandiego'', has flying kicks as her preferred method of combat. She has also kicked open doors bolted by heavy pieces of lumber, and her legs are strong enough she once freed herself from a pillory just by flexing her legs.
* Mystique once again, this time in ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen''. There's a particularly memorable kick in her introductory episode, when she's fighting Wolverine. He swipes at her, and she ducks...but while she's there, she throws out a back kick ''over her own head'' and nails him in the face. It's right at the beginning of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjR33chbIhQ this video]] if you want to see it.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' episode "Legs", Raven discovers she is talented kicker, so she adopts an alternate superhero identity named Lady Legasus. She only returns to her original identity when she discovers that her cloak has corrupted Cyborg.
* [[CuteMonsterGirl Cricket]] from ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'' is an [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual E.V.O.]] whose main mutation is having absurdly powerful legs (Hence her name) that she regularly uses to beat her enemies. To the point [[ShapeshifterWeapon Rex]] is shown having a hard time fighting her.
