* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Olenna Tyrell to Tywin Lannister. Both hold the opposite gender in some disregard, with Olenna dismissing her son as an oaf and her grandson as only good at knocking men off horses and Tywin dismissing his daughter as not as smart as she thinks. They also ride roughshod over their children, saying things like "Not now, Mace, Lord Tywin and I are speaking," and "You're my daughter; you will do as I command," and focus their attentions on their grandchildren, with Olenna taking a great interest in making Margaery a queen and Tywin discussing kingship with his grandsons. Both arrange political marriages between their dynasties without consulting the parties involved and resort to violating sacred hospitality at a wedding for the good of their family and are perfectly willing to let others take the fall, whether they be co-conspirators or innocent bystanders.

* In ''Literature/TheMazeRunner'' series, Group A are predominantly male and most of Group B (introduced in ''The Scorch Trials'') are predominantly female. Also, Aris is the Spear Counterpart of Teresa and Rachel is likewise the Distaff Counterpart Counterparts to most of Thomas.Group A. Specific examples include:
** Harriet to Minho as of the point where the two groups meet up in the Scorch. It is not known if Group B had any leaders prior to Harriet, but Group A have been through two leaders by the time Minho assumes the role.
** Rachel to Thomas. However, since the former is a PosthumousCharacter, she doesn't appear directly until ''The Fever Code'' (the fifth book in the series in order of publication, but the second in order of chronology) apart from in one of Thomas's memory dreams.
** Beth to Gally. Both go missing in their groups' respective Mazes days before each group launches their escape attempt, only to turn up in the final chamber, at which point they are manipulated into killing one of the survivors.

NOTE: "Distaff" means "female". Therefore, the inverse of this (a male counterpart to an existing female character or AlwaysFemale trope) is technically and traditionally a '''Spear Counterpart''' (which was named for the spearhead-shaped end of the symbol of Mars that represents males. [[IThoughtItMeant You may also be thinking]] the "spear" [[FreudWasRight meant something else]]).
