* The Au Ra introduced in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'''s first expansion, ''Heavensward'', are a race of {{Draconic Humanoid}}s that look entirely different. The men are at least seven-eight feet tall, have very sharp features, scales all over their body, gigantic horns where their ears should be, longer tails and very aggressive body language. By contrast, the females are only about six feet tall, have slender, dainty builds and soft faces with a difference in the number and placement of scale patches, smoother horns that curve back away from their head, shorter tails, and a much softer body language.

The men are at least seven-eight males reach heights of over seven feet tall, have very sharp features, scales all over their body, gigantic horns where their ears should be, longer tails and very aggressive body language. By contrast, the females are only about six barely reach five feet tall, have slender, dainty builds and soft faces with a difference in the number and placement of scale patches, smoother horns that curve back away from their head, shorter tails, and a much softer body language.

* Female shrykes in ''Literature/TheEdgeChronicles'' are sadistic [[FeatheredFiend humanoid birds of prey]] with deadly weapons and [[NaturalWeapon even deadlier claws and beaks]]. Male shrykes are small and frail, with dull plumage and duller personality, and usually take care of mundane tasks while the females wage war and enslave orphans.

* Many of the monster races in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' are like this, most notably the Naga. The males of several player races are any of a variety of hulking and exaggerated humanoid shapes, but the females are all some variation of CuteMonsterGirl. The most dramatic are probably the Drainei (where the males have facial tentacles and the females have horns) and the Pandarans (where the males are anthropomorphic giant pandas (bears) and the females are anthropomorphic red pandas (raccoons)).

* Downplayed example, in ''VideoGame/{{Granblue Fantasy}}'', Female and Male Draphs both share visually similar characteristics with their horns and pointed ears. But while average male Draphs are large, hulking brutes at around 220cm tall, physically larger than the rest of the other races; Female Draphs are positively ''[[http://i.imgur.com/2QgqZjU.jpg tiny]]'' in comparison, averaging at only 130cm, the only race shorter than them being the Dwarfish Harvins. But what makes them stand out compared to the other races is how the cup size of female Draphs ranges from ''[[{{MostCommonSuperpower}} G all the way to L]]'', shown [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/data/__alicia_aliza_almeida_anila_augusta_and_others_granblue_fantasy_and_shingeki_no_bahamut__b51206a1bb0e6e1439fc84e0340179e0.jpg here]]. Many of the Female Draph characters are also [[{{BoobsOfSteel}} strong, physical fighters]].

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' has the Gazorpians, of which the males are large, savage creatures who live on the surface of the planet while the female are more humanoid (save for the extra pair of arms), intelligent, empathetic and live in a StrawFeminist utopia underneath the surface. The races are created via breeding chambers in the form of sexbots that get sent up to the surface, which are eventually taken underground where the babies' genders and fates are determined, with boys being literally slingshotted out into the world.

** In the Demon Hunter starting zone there's numerous spider demons. King Voras simply looks like a massive mutated spider, but his wife Queen Tyranna is a WingedHumanoid with a mild spider theme.

** There are a number of species that are gender exclusive (Jynx, for example, is only female). But some of these Pokémon are considered the opposite sex of a different species. The Nidoran pairs come to mind, familiar to most people, but Tauros found his female counterpart in Miltank, and later generations continued the trend. This might be GenderEqualsBreed, though. It's debated whether or not Miltank and Tauros are opposite genders of the same species--unlike Volbeat/Illumise and the Nidoran family, Miltank eggs can never hatch into Tauros.

The Nidoran pairs come to mind, familiar to "species". Notably (and most people, obviously) Nidorino and Nidorina, but Tauros found his female counterpart in Miltank, also Volbeat and later generations continued the trend.

** Other examples: In the [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} anime]], a Latias produced a Latios egg like the Volbeat/Illumise thing. Some species also have sexual trimorphism: Only male Kirlia can evolve into Gallade, but both genders can evolve into Gardevoir. Only female Snorunt can evolve into Froslass, but both can evolve into Glalie. Combee can be both genders, but only females evolve into Vespiquen, males do not evolve. Also Rufflet/Braviary and Vullaby/Mandibuzz are considered counterparts, but they don't produce each others' eggs much like Tauros/Miltank.
