Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/SamuraiDeeperKyou'', it's revealed that Saisei, apparent member of the Goyosei, is actually a powerful zombie of Tomoe Gozen, armed with a truly massive Oonaginata and donning a ridicolously skimpy samurai armor. She can unleash deadly sakura petals or summon a portal on her body which redirect all damage inflicted on her opponent. [[spoiler: She's also a TragicVillain and dies at Akira's hands when the latter turns her own AttackReflector against her.]]
* ''Manga/UshioAndTora'': At one point, Tora compares Ushio's love interest Asako to Tomoe Gozen. A sidestory narrates Tomoe's encounter with Tora and how she witnessed him taking down a whole gang of Bakemono whose boss was impersonating Tora.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'', Tomoe is referenced in the name of the strongest naginata-type weapon, mentioning her as a powerful samurai woman.


* ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' at first mentioned Tomoe to have been summoned as a Servant during the Babylonia Singularity, but apparently died after pulling a HeroicSacrifice against the forces of demons. She made her more proper debut way later during the third Epic of Remnant scenario, as Shimosa's Archer Inferno, where she has been corrupted into a bloodthirsty warrior that has to be defeated. However, she can be summoned more normally and she exhibits a much more normal personality: A nurturing and loyal LadyOfWar decidedly devoted to Yoshinaka even beyond death and ''hates'' the three Minamotos that ordered his death; Yoritomo, Noriyori and Yoshitsune[[note]]Ironically, Yoshitsune is actually around there, but taking form of [[GenderFlip her]] younger form Ushiwakamaru, so Tomoe could only think that she somehow looked familiar[[/note]]. In this continuity, Tomoe's might is explained with one addition about her: she's got {{Oni}} blood in her, which is why she has [[HornedHumanoid horns]] in her later ascensions. Hanging around with the modern devices of the protagonist eventually had her [[GamerChick grow interested in playing video games]].

->''Tomoe had long black hair and a fair complexion, and her face was very lovely; moreover she was a fearless rider whom neither the fiercest horse nor the roughest ground could dismay. And so dexterously did she handle sword and bow that she was a match for a thousand warriors, and fit to meet either god or devil. Many times had she taken the field, armed at all points, and won matchless renown in encounters with the bravest captains. And so in this last fight, when all the others had been slain or had fled, among the last seven there rode Tomoe''

Much of Tomoe's past were mudded in history. However, she was the chief wife/concubine of [[UsefulNotes/{{Genji}} Minamoto no Yoshinaka]], and was the daughter of his wet nurse. Instead of receiving the training of a home-defender, Tomoe took the other route and trained as a frontline soldier. As ''[[Literature/TheTaleOfTheHeike The Tale of the Heike]]'' coined, Tomoe was especially beautiful, with white skin, long hair, and charming features. She was also a remarkably strong archer, and as a swordswoman she was a warrior worth a thousand, ready to confront a demon or a god, mounted or on foot.

The Minamoto clan was at first united in their battle against the rival clan of Taira. After Yoshinaka was given the title 'Asahi Shogun' (Daylight Shogun), he began to develop several unhealthy ambition to set up a government in his own name, and even seized the Emperor Go-Shirakawa and burnt down his palace. His main brother Yoritomo did not approve, and sent out his two other brothers, Yoshitsune and Noriyori, to punish Yoshinaka with death. The morality of Yoshinaka's actions weren't put on Tomoe's considerations, as far as she's concerned, she's got her duty as his wife to protect and support Yoshinaka.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'', Kagami Tsurugi's mother Tomoe Tsurugi is named after her. Tomoe even mentions her namesake as someone she admires for defying her society's restictions to become a samurai, and she's also an international fencing champion. Tomoe's [[VillainPossessedBystander Akumatized]] form, Ikari Gozen, is also an allusion to Tomoe Gozen's "gozen" title.

Tomoe Gozen (circa 1157 1247) is a name that to many Japanese people is pretty much synonymous to the term 'LadyOfWar'. In the days of the past, when women's role were basically to take care of homes, make babies and sometimes defend it from invaders... Tomoe gave her middle finger to it. She's a frontline warrior, capable in wielding many types of weapons, riding horses and fought just as fierce than any other male soldiers ([[MoreDeadlyThanTheMale or perhaps even fiercer]]).
