* In WWE, [[Wrestling/{{Charlotte}} Charlotte Flair]] is one to Wrestling/RicFlair minus the party lifestyle. She's called the Nature Girl, her entrance theme includes the famous intro of his, and she has adopted several of his moves and mannerisms (Figure 4, knee drop, strut, WOOOO, etc). This is not lost on people; in fact the sheer number of borrowed aspects from her father has been openly criticized both in-universe by her rivals and by a growing list of detractors amongst the fans.

*** Masters/ANA Inspiration[[note]]Founded by entertainer Dinah Shore and originally bearing her name; most recently known as the Kraft Nabisco Championship[[/note]] The tournaments are not run by the same body, but they are de facto counterparts. Both are the first majors of their respective seasons, and are held at the same course every year.[[note]](The Masters at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, the Inspiration at Mission Hills Country Club in Palm Springs, California.)[[/note]] Most notably, both have a unique tradition surrounding the winner. The Masters winner is fitted with a special green jacket that identifies members of Augusta National, the club that runs the tournament. The winner of the Inspiration traditionally jumps into a pond behind the 18th green.

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" meant something else).

* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'': Evil HERO Inferno Wing is a female EvilCounterpart to Elemental HERO Flame Wingman and both of them even share the exact same Fusion Materials. They share the same stats, but Inferno Wing's Monster Effects are improved versions of Flame Wingman's. Notably, since their Fusion Materials consist Featherman/[[DubNameChange Avian]] and Burstlady/[[DubNameChange Burstinatrix]], it's not illogical how Inferno Wing ended up as a DistaffCounterpart.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Fangbone}}'' feels pretty much like a Spear Counterpart series for ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', with a barbarian kid instead of a magical princess.

* Terrence and Phillip, the Canadian comedy duo in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', have female counterparts in Katherine and Katie Queef whom they marry.
** Season 21 actually has a number of these. Strong Woman and Miss Conduct are introduced as female foils to PC Principal and Mr. Mackey for similar effect. However the most shocking of them all is [[spoiler: Heidi Turner becoming one to Eric Cartman.]]

* ''Tachibanakan To Lie Angle'' is a {{Yuri|Genre}} send-up to AccidentalPervert ecchi manga, particularly those that follow the ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' model. The localization team apparently caught on quickly, because the english version of the title (''[[MarketBasedTitle Love To-LIE-Angle]]'') looks remarkably similar to its male counterpart.

* [[Manga/SoulEater Soul Eater (Manga)]]: The whole Spartoi group.-- When the group goes into [[spoiler:the Book of Eibon after Noah and Kido-kun, the first chapter, "Lust"]] turns the males female and vice versa. They then make comments on how odd they look, until a team of [[{{Nosebleed}} Female Succubus]] come and try to defeat them.
