If I may be so bold to point this out, the Playing With subpage of Action Girl lists the basic trope as a female action hero. If that is the basic Action Girl trope, then why is Action Girl not the Distaff Counterpart to Action Hero.
Any suggestions on how to gather examples for this trope, which has been heavily restructured last year as part of a TRS effort?
Copy-paste the draft into YKTTW and add a "needs examples" tag, and then update this page when there are plenty.
Does Action Hero have to always conform to all the listed traits (e.g. "Nationality: American")?
No. I deleted that part. That's a completely ridiculous requirement since most action heroes don't even pretend to be American.
Okay, but why is it that the example list has only examples of roles/films by Hollywood actors? It gives the impression that this trope is restricted to Western media/Hollywood.
Um, hello? Maybe I should take this to Trope Talk?
This page suffers some other problems too. It says on the main that Action Girl is not this trope's Distaff Counterpart, but that the former is "a female Badass". Never mind that the page for that trope states specifically that she actively fights, and also that a badass need not necessarily be of the "action" variety. I think we should really try to edit that part.
