* Downplayed example, in ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'', 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 ''[[WorldOfBuxom 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_drawn_by_mikasayaki__5cf11ad1a0175b353dc0bc182d4b983a.jpg here.]] Many of the Female Draph characters are also [[BoobsOfSteel strong, physical fighters]].

** 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 Draenei (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)).

* Subverted in the ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' series with the mermaids and mermen. Mermaids are fairly exotic and beautiful as a sailor might expect, but there's a problem -- telling them apart from the ''mermen'' can be quite difficult for outsiders. All merfolk look pretty much the same and there's no external dimorphism between sexes, so if a Human man mistakes a Merman for a Mermaid, you can expect a [[{{Squick}} squicky]] situation.

* Some of the creatures in ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' are actually the males and females of the same species, despite being fairly different (or in some cases, wildly different):
** The Seltas is a monster that resembles an enormous rhinoceros beetle. The Seltas Queen is much larger, flightless, and more resembles a scorpion with its squat body and pincered tail.
** Downplayed with Rathian and Rathalos. Their designs and abilities are similar enough, but the Rathian is usually green while the Rathalos is red, and they have different elemental weaknesses (Rathian is more vulerable to Thunder attacks, while Rathalos is more vulnerable to Dragon attacks). They also have very different tactics: Rathians prefer to fight low to the ground at close range with their venomous tails, while the Rathalos tends to keep airborne and attack with its fire breath.

* ''Fanfic/EquestriaAcrossTheMultiverse'' has the mane six visit version of Terra presented in the ''Fanfic/TheBridge'' with Twilight being a Godzilla. As mentioned above, she has the same sexual dimorphism as Raiga (minus the skin color, as Twilight is still lavender) with the added addition of, due to being an atomic mutation styled Godzillasaur, being slightly taller than Junior.

* ''Literature/MidnightRobber'' by Creator/NaloHopkinson has the douen, natives of the PenalColony planet New Half-Way Tree. The males are lizard-like, and can speak fairly well. The women are more bird-like, with feathers and a beak which limits their ability to speak human languages--which is why most humans aren't aware they're intelligent, let alone the same species.

[[caption-width-right:350:They're the same species? That's {{a load of bull}}!]]



** Tauros and Miltank, which provide the page image, were [[OneGenderRace different species]] on the 'Dex until ''Sun and Moon''[[note]]because Miltank can't produce Tauros eggs[[/note]] but for all intents and purposes are the male and female counterparts to each other. Tauros is a quadruped bull with multiple tails, while Miltank is a pink bipedal cow.



** A particularly extreme example occurs with Solgaleo and Lunala. Although technically classified as [[NoBiologicalSex genderless]] as with most [[OlympusMons legendary Pokémon]], the two are identified as male and female versions of the same species respectively. The former resembles a giant lion, the latter a giant bat.

** Female Dathomirians (Dathomirians are a hybrid between Zabrak and humans), have chalk-white skin and shaved bald heads, resembling Rattataki. Male Dathomirians, however, resemble their Zabrak forefathers (like Darth Maul) with skin tattooed red or gold, and horns. Basically, while the males hardly look any different from regular Zabrak, females lack horns and thus look no different than humans.
