She may also crossdress, [[HearingVoices experience supernatural voices or visions]], wear heavy armor, be a farm girl, join the military, or be persecuted and martyred. Extra points for suffering a CruelAndUnusualDeath such as being [[BurnTheWitch burned at the stake]]. (Especially if even ''that'' involves voluntary martyrdom.)

* In Myke Cole's ''Sacred Thrones'' trilogy, Heloise Factor (the surname is because her father is a factor) is declared a saint when she kills a demon with a [[MiniMecha War Engine]] that she desparately climbs into. Her victory is declared a miracle as she's normally too small to be able to use the machine but the demon's initial attack crushed it down enough for her to barely fit. In a new battlesuit fitted to her, she leads a rebellion against [[WitchHunter the Order]], the organization that's supposed to stop wizards and the hell portals that they eventually manifest but have long since grown corrupt and tyrannical.

** ''Anime/CodeGeassAkitoTheExiled'' has a mostly played straight example in Leila Malcal; ActionGirl, leads people against oppressors, and even has a touch of supernatural to her [[spoiler: due to possessing a Geass that lets her connect people's minds together]]. This is actually even taken advantage of and invoked by [[spoiler: Gene Smilas in trying to make her an InspirationalMartyr.]] Leila however manages to [[EarnYourHappyEnding Earn Her Happy Ending]] despite attempts otherwise.

* ''Manga/CodeGeassNightmareOfNunnally'' puts a bit of MindScrew on this. Initially C.C. is portrayed as being the actual [[UsefulNotes/JoanOfArc Jeanne D'Arc]], but later we find out that the real Jeanne cut a Geass emblem into C.C. and positioned her as a witch, then C.C. aided Britannia in capturing Jeanne, who at her [[BurnTheWitch burning]] cursed C.C., who was also burned as a witch.

** RareMaleExample in Zero. Lelouch as Zero is TheStrategist and a symbol of the rebellion and resistance against Britannia in Japan and eventually the whole world. He even acknowledges the fact Zero is a "symbol" himself. Like the actual Joan, he's not much of a fighter - at least until he gets his AceCustom that lets him fight using his own personal strengths - and requires others to fight for him but makes up for it by going directly into battle himself and making it very clear he's willing to take risks the same as his soldiers. [[spoiler: This aspect of Zero is taken advantage of when he pulls off the Zero Requiem; which also involves a dark twist on the martyrdom as Lelouch sacrifices himself as a "demon" so the world will seek peace and unite together.]]
