* Pictured is the cover to a ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' collection, showing how a good portion of ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' viewers were fangirls oogling Creator/OrlandoBloom (many others differed chiefly in that they preferred Viggo Mortensen). Then there was the embarrassing fawning over an extra that female fans christened "[[Music/FlightOfTheConchords Figwit.]]"

** Or the Hobbits. All four of them. Separately and together. Helps that three out of four are played by slender actors. ''Film/TheHobbit'' trilogy has launched Bilbo's (somewhat) addition to the equation since their release.
** Dwarves are supposed to be much like what you see in LOTR, with Gimli and his father Gloin looking properly stout and bearded and not what you'd call hot. Then Peter Jackson decided that it'd be appropriate to give the parts of the Line of Durin to [[http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Thorin_II_Oakenshield?file=ThorinOakenshieldOfTheHobbit.jpeg Richard Armitage]] as Thorin, [[http://images6.fanpop.com/image/photos/33400000/Kili-Wallpaper-fili-and-kili-33416104-1500-960.jpg Aidan Turner]] as Kili, and [[http://www-images.theonering.org/torwp/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Fili-fili-kili-and-the-others-33467840-1500-960.jpg David O'Gorman]] as Fili. It worked.

* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' had a large female fanbase, despite being aimed at young boys. In fact, PaulDini set off a minor controversy after he explained to Creator/KevinSmith that one of the major reasons the show was ScrewedByTheNetwork [[http://io9.com/paul-dini-superhero-cartoon-execs-dont-want-largely-f-1483758317 was because it had too many female viewers in the eyes of the execs]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/RandyCunninhamNinthGradeNinja'' fans are mostly female. Most fan fictions are about the main hero Randy and self-insert characters. Also, the HoYay moments between Randy and Howard became of the most popular ships of the series.

* Wilt from ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' has ''quite'' the large fangirl base. There's even an entire [[http://www.fosters-home.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1913 thread on the Foster's forum]] dedicated to this fan demographic.

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' has always been a game about war, death and political intrigue between kingdoms, and depending on where each setting places on the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism, it could even show no illusions [[NoWomansLand on how bad women had it]], most notably shown in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral''. Even so, the franchise has earned a ''gargantuan'' female following thanks to it's deep characters, strong female protagonists and [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys endless shortage of handsome men]], with all of this being ''before'' the HoYay is factored in.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius'' is especially infamous for it's EstrogenBrigade. Taking place in a setting chock-full of GreyAndGrayMorality, mature themes like genocide and racism, and the fact that Ike was a [[{{BFS}} BFS-wielding]] mercenary basically made ''Tellius'' a LighterAndSofter ''Manga/{{Berserk}}''. Despite this, it manages to have ''the'' largest female-following of the setting, in no shortage to the ''gargantuan'' CastFullOfPrettyBoys, the deep storyline, characters and worldbuilding, and endless shortage of strong female characters. And this series manages to have the most HoYay [[UpToEleven in a series]] ''[[UpToEleven full]]'' [[UpToEleven of Ho Yay.]]

* It's only appropriate that JamieBamber get his own brigade for ''Battlestar Galactica'', because he had one during his run in the ''Series/HoratioHornblower'' TV movies, probably due to his PrettyBoy looks and proclivity to wavering between being a daring hero and a complete woobie. TheNineties fandoms are weirdly dedicated, and [[FanCommunityNickname Crumpeteers]] -- his character Archie Kennedy was fondly called "Crumpet" -- swoon over Archie and write fan fic about him in TheNewTens.

Not to be confused with AmazonBrigade. Its SpearCounterpart is the TestosteroneBrigade, while [[GirlShowGhetto debatable]], may be even more frequent.

* ''Franchise/JojosBizarreAdventure'' is famous for its very large female fanbase due in no part to all the HoYay and [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys disproportionately male cast]], but is primarily a shonen geared towards male audiences and often full of ultraviolent content. Hell, {{CLAMP}} even got its start doing doujinshi and slashy fanart for this series.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/TheAdventuresOfTintin'': The female fans have taken quite a liking to Tintin and the Captain, even if the art style of the comic books is the opposite of "sensual". It probably adds to their eroticism how the two characters get into perilous situations quite often, sometimes even [[BoundAndGagged tied up]], which can add to those who have the fetish.
