Added DiffLines:
* ''Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde'' had virtually no female characters in it. The PerspectiveFlip novel and film ''Film/MaryReilly'' tells the story from the POV of one of his maids. It adds in a significant female character in Mrs Farraday, as well as featuring another maid and the cook as supporting characters.

Added DiffLines:
* Supergirl's adopted sibling was a boy in the comics. For ''{{Series/Supergirl2015}}'' the character becomes Kara's stepsister Alex. This adds a third female protagonist in addition to Kara, and her boss Cat Grant.

* The ''StarWars'' franchise is recently hit with this, mostly because the original films tended to stick to TheSmurfettePrinciple. Bonus points for both of them being non-humans. ** ''StarWarsTheCloneWars'' added Ahsoka Tano and [[DarkActionGirl Asajj Ventress]] as the main characters.

* The first ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' game on the Nintendo 64 had only two playable female characters, Samus and Jigglypuff (whose gender is ambiguous anyway). ''Melee'' on [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube GameCube]] added Peach, the Ice Climbers (one of whom is female) and Zelda (who can transform into Sheik), essentially adding four female characters. Brawl added Zero Suit Samus (a transformation for Samus similar to Zelda and Shiek), as well as Ivysaur (whose bud type actually confirms it as female, oddly enough), putting the total female playable character count (should you count each Pokemon of Pokemon Trainer and Zelda/Shiek and Samus/Zero Suit as their own fighters) to 8 out of 39. Then came ''Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U'', which split Zelda and Shiek as well as Samus and Zero Suit Samus into separate characters, finally giving those characters their own roster space, while simultaneously removing the Ice Climbers and Ivysaur. This would balance things out if they didn't add in the Wii Fit Trainer, Rosalina, Palutena, Lucina, and VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}, as well as multiple characters with female-alt skins such as Wendy (Bowser Jr.), Mii Fighter, Robin, the Villager, and Corrin, adding ''ten'' new female characters in one installment. It's for this reason that the latest installment has received praise for being much more gender-accepting.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]] * Wrestling/{{TNA}} first only had a singles championship for its female performers but introduced a set of TagTeam titles in 2009 - though they were disbanded in 2013. * The stable The Oddities originally had Wrestling/LunaVachon as its lone female member. {{Wrestling/Sable}} joined the group and was considered an honorary member after a HeelFaceTurn. * Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon was the only female member of the [=McMahon=]-Helmsley faction, also known as D-Generation X. After Wrestling/{{T|erriPoch}}ori turned heel and became Wrestling/XPac's girlfriend, that put her in the group. It was also the only time in the stable's many incarnations that it had more than one female (Wrestling/{{Chyna}} had been said female when the group first formed). * Right to Censor very briefly for a storyline. Wrestling/{{Ivory}} was the only female in the stable, but a stipulation forced The Kat to become one of them too. However The Kat was released by WWE a week later so the storyline became an AbortedArc. [[/folder]]
