* The inclusion of the Golden Age Franchise/WonderWoman in the Comicbook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica. The team was founded just by male heroes. The 2012 JSA reboot makes Comicbook/{{Hawk|man}}girl into a founding member. Bonus points since she's a Latina [[TwoferTokenMinority as well]].
* During ''[[SuperheroSchool Super School's]]'' first run in ''ComicStrio/TheBeano'' there were originally four super kids three male one female and then ComicStrip/{{Banana|man}}girl was added to the cast balancing the sexes quite a bit.

** The show's version of the Terrible Trio had Vulture [[GenderFlip portrayed as a woman]] so that the group wouldn't be entirely male.
* According to Creator/BruceTimm, ComicBook/{{Batgirl}} was [[AscendedExtra made into a main character]] in ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The New Batman Adventures]]'' because the network thought adding a a girl to the main cast would help court female viewers.

* The second book of ''ASongOfIceAndFire'', ''A Clash of Kings'', introduces many female warriors into the already large cast of characters, including [[DarkActionGirl Asha Greyjoy]], [[SamusIsAGirl Brienne of Tarth]], [[FieryRedhead Ygritte]], [[CoolBigSis Meera Reed]], as well as fire priestess [[HotWitch Melisandre]]. Martin explores how each fits into the male-dominated world of Westeros. The fourth book, ''A Feast for Crows'', also introduces the Sand Snakes, a group of sisters who were brought up to be badasses by their father.

* In 2012, during one of the famous {{Superbowl}} commercials, M&M maker Mars introduced Ms. Brown, an icy businesswoman voiced by Vanessa Williams, to go with the other M&M "spokescandies". Brown was the last regular color to be characterized, and since Green was the only other female out of the set, it seems Mars wanted to kill two birds with one stone.

* Most of the cast of the first ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' was, well, a collection of boy's toys. The only female character, Bo Peep, was fairly minor and only existed because the boy shared a room with his baby sister (and so Woody could have a {{Love Interest|s}}). In ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'', Mrs. Potato Head was also fairly minor, but Jessie was one of the mains. ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'' gives Mrs. Potato Head a larger role, and also adds {{Franchise/Barbie}}, though Bo Peep was actually cut entirely. In Barbie's case, it was also the fact that the movies had permission to use the character for the first time. Originally, Bo Peep (the aforementioned only female character in the first movie) was supposed to be a Barbie, but Mattel refused. It wasn't until [[TheRedStapler they saw how the movies caused sales of Mr. Potato Head toys to spike]] that they agreed.

* Comicbook/BlackWidow was the only female Avenger for the first film, but in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', ScarletWitch is added to the line-up. If one counts the supporting cast, Maria Hill was the only significant woman helping the Avengers out in the first movie.

* The film adaptation of ''Voyage of the Dawn Treader'' adds a second girl to the crew - Gael, a girl who stows away after her mother is kidnapped. This would have created a PlotHole for when the Dufflepuds kidnap Lucy as in the book, they do so because only a girl can read the spell to free them. However the film remedies it by having one of the Dufflepuds note that Gael is also a girl but that Lucy has a book next to her, indicating she knows how to read.

* In the adaption of ''Film/{{SWAT}}'', a new character was added, Chris Sanchez, a woman who has repeatedly applied to join SWAT but was rejected for being a girl, with her number of police brutality accusations (Actually just perps who were embarrassed at being taken down by a girl) given as a reason for not allowing her to join. and Then came Creator/SamuelLJackson...

** ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' adds Tonks to the team of good badass adults we're used to as well as Ginny Weasley and Luna Lovegood to the main group. Although Ginny was in the story before this book, she was just a background character who had no real impact on storylines. Here she becomes a proper ActionGirl and joins Harry, Ron, Hermione and Neville in the fight in the Ministry. Luna as well then makes the main group have three girls and three boys. On the evil side we originally had [[PsychoSupporter Bellatrix]] as the TheDarkChick. Alecto Carrow then appears as another female Death Eater, but this trope fits Bellatrix's sister [[MamaBear Narcissa]] better; she technically appeared earlier and she's only the wife of a villain, but her role gets greatly expanded in the final two books, culminating in [[spoiler:a HeelFaceTurn that allows Harry to kill Voldemort]].

* Not exactly balancing out the gender [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment balance]], Shuki from Series/KamenRiderHibiki was a lot more competent and stayed on the show longer than [[Series/KamenRiderBlade Larc]] and [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Femme]]. [[spoiler:And by longer, we mean two episodes as opposed to just thirty minutes]]. Femme's [[Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight American counterpart]], Siren, lasted much longer and had a much bigger role.

Fred was added to the main titles for Season 3, making it TwoGirlsToATeam. By Season 5, Fred was the only female in the main cast.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' is an interesting case. The original game had three girls on the team but the protagonist was male. The sequel has two of the original girls now as the protagonist, with a third new one added - marking the first time in the series the player has an all-female party. What's more is that those three are the ''only'' party members and there are no GuestStarPartyMembers either.

* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'': While there are females of all stripes in the roster, fans in the past have noticed a lack of females in certain roles and petitioned Riot to do something about it, only to [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure have them listen and add a suitable champion]]. A good example is Leona, created to answer to answer the fan's requests for a female tank, a very well-received. GenderFlipped with Graves, who was created due to fans noting a lack of [[RatedMForManly masculine]] marksman-type characters. When both his moveset and character were revealed to approach marksmanship in the most manly way possible, the fans were again pleased.

* Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog: [[ClassyCatBurglar Rouge the Bat]] and [[BadassPrincess Blaze the Cat]]. The former was the first additional major female character after [[GenkiGirl Amy Rose]](whom only started becoming an ActionGirl herself recently at that point) and was an adversary for Knuckles. The latter debuted a few years later, but is noticeable for being the only female character to match [[TheHero Sonic's]] skill in combat and is also the only female to have a SuperMode of her own.
* The cast of THQ's cancelled ''Avengers'' video game pretty much exclusively consisted of characters featured in the [[MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]] (Comicbook/IronMan, ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk, [[TheMightyThor Thor]], Comicbook/BlackWidow, {{Hawkeye}} and Comicbook/WarMachine) with the lone exception of Comicbook/MsMarvel, who would have appeared as an unlockable character.

* Skeeter in ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'', as Miss Piggy was the only major recurring female on the parent series, ''Series/TheMuppetShow''. (For the record, there weren't very many minor recurring females on the Muppet Show, either. There was really just Janice, who was part of the rock band. On the other hand, Animal was part of the band, too, and they used him regardless.)

* The Geek in ''WesternAnimation/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice''. Put in as a compromise - the executives wanted a female main character and their original idea was to make Max female (which would never work as Sam And Max are HeterosexualLifePartners with the occasional moment of HoYay). Luckily she hardly had any effect on the show. The silly thing is there are plenty of female characters in Sam And Max, but the network wanted one as a main character.

* Hawkgirl from ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' was added because the network wanted one more female character besides Wonder Woman. It worked out, though, because despite her relative lack of notoriety in the original comics, she ended up becoming one of the most significant (in both [[EnsembleDarkhorse a good way]] and [[CreatorsPet a bad way]], according to the BrokenBase) in the series, and even led to her being used more in the mainstream DC universe, which in turn was because [[Franchise/{{DCAU}} Timm and Dini]] are just that good. They are in fact ''so good'' that TheMovie is entirely centered around her origins and race, and even when [[spoiler:she leaves the team]] she's ''still'' a huge deal later on.

* Angela from ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', added in Season 2. All the gargoyles were male except for Demona, who was a villain. Elisa was the existing female character, but she's not a gargoyle and therefore [[OvershadowedByAwesome not quite as action-y]], despite being a police officer and often participating in combat.
** In the original series pitch, there were apparently two female gargoyles in the main cast--Coco, who was forced by ExecutiveMeddling to evolve into Broadway because they didn't like the idea of an overweight female as a main character, and Dakota, the original leader of the clan, who was dropped for being very boring. It's worth noting that neither character was stuck in limbo permanently: Coco was brought back in the comic continuation as a member of the London Clan, and Dakota went back to the drawing board and got retooled into a villain, under the name [[BigBad Demona]].
* [[Film/SpaceJam Lola Bunny]]. She basically existed because of how few notable female Looney Tunes there were (having Granny play basketball would be pushing suspension of disbelief, and Petunia Pig is seriously obscure). They found a gender-neutral niche for her in the comic books, and eventually turned her into a CloudCuckoolander and StalkerWithACrush for ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow''. Ironically, the character introduced solely to be Daffy Duck's girlfriend, Tina, is this for ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'' itself -- and is more well-received than this incarnation of Lola.
