* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' featured this aesthetic, transposing the AllGrownUp {{Magical Girl}}s from the previous series into command positions of an almost-all-female paramilitary SpacePolice unit. This proved to be just a phase for the franchise, however, since ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'' ditched most of the "moe" in "military moe" (and was eventually canceled), while subsequent anime and manga ditched the "military" part and went the "martial arts moe" route, focusing on the new generation of magical girls raised by the previous heroines.

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' was originally this using a mainly [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys male cast]]. Early on it was meant to adapt World War II but with [[AnthropomorphicPersonification humanized countries]]. While most characters still mainly dress in military gear, the actual content of the series doesn't relate as much to war or military as it once did.



* Played with in ''Manga/GunslingerGirl''. The girls are not involved with the military specifically but are still in government related roles. They're all cute preteen girls, and the token oldest one can't be older than seventeen, who regularly wield [[SmallGirlBigGun guns]]... however it's played up for drama, with the girls being ChildSoldiers, with {{Dark And Troubled Past}}s [[spoiler:who [[KillEmAll all die]]]], in a cynical world where the [[DysfunctionJunction adults are also deeply troubled]]. The manga can't quite make up its mind on whether it's a deconstruction or not, however the original anime made it into a deconstruction. The second season, ''Teatrino'', however used a "moe" art style that was even cuter than the manga's and played this trope up more.
