* Starting from the [[VideoGame/{{Persona 3}} third entry]] onward, the ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'' series started to adopt this mindset with it's villains. While male villains often are pretty vile or extreme with few exceptions, the female ones are treated either as tragic characters who end up villains due to circumstances beyond their control, or as in the case with [[spoiler:Izanami]], ultimately [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-intentioned]] but misguided.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' seems to only have one truly evil woman (two if you count [[spoiler:a Grima-possessed female Avatar]]) throughout the game, with any other women merely being antagonists and/or mooks. But if you receive the [=SpotPass=] chapters [[spoiler: you suddenly find out that she was practically mind controlled for the entire game, she then joins your team.]] To compare, [[spoiler:Gangrel]] was a genuinely messed up individual, with a long list of atrocities to his name; [[spoiler: he joins too,]] but he actually ''has'' to bear responsibility for his actions, instead of shifting the blame to someone else.

* Jo speaks against this trope in ''Literature/LittleWomen'' where the men in the boarding house are discussing whether women should receive the vote. One of the men invokes this trope in favour of giving women the vote, while Jo says that women should not vote "because they are angels" but because it is their right as human beings.



* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' seems to evoke Lois' flawed moments this way. A lot of her more self righteous or aggressive bouts are often provoked heavily by Peter's selfish or obnoxious antics, even if a lot of them are disproportionate. For example, she takes up martial arts and becomes outright abusive to Peter as a result of him belittling her power in the household. She also labels his and her father's objections to her being a model being unjust and opressive, despite the fact she is genuinely acting like a slut and on a self destructive path due to taking drugs. Later episodes seem to just skip the formalities and just make Lois an even bigger JerkAss than Peter, even if her losing it as a result of his behavior isn't that unlikely.

* In ''WarriorCats'', villains are almost always male:
** This trope is really present in ''The Prophecies Begin'' arc, in which nameless bad guy cats are always, or almost always, toms. The named villains are also overwhelmingly male. Tigerstar and Scourge are the main villains of series one, and both of their chief henchcats, Darkstripe and Bone respectively, are toms as well, as is Brokenstar, the villain of early series one. Blackfoot, who later becomes Blackstar, is at his most villainous in this arc as well.
** In ''The New Prophecy'' the villain is Hawkfrost, and also Mudclaw, who plots to overtake [=WindClan=]. Sharptooth, the cougar who preys on the Tribe, is also male, although not really a character so much as a monster.
** ''The Power of Three'' has Sol, who wants to destroy the Clans, and Ashfur, who tries to murder three of his Clanmates. The closest thing to a female villain in this arc is Hollyleaf, who kills Ashfur. Of the Tribe invaders, half are toms and half she-cats.
** In ''Omen of the Stars'', most of the male villains are reused from previous series, although some female villains finally get introduced. Mapleshade is the biggest female villain, and introduced in this series (after fans pointed out that most villains so far were dark brown tabby toms). Also appearing in the Dark Forest is the minor female character Sparrowfeather. Ivypool may also qualify, before she realizes that the Dark Forest wants to destroy the Clans.
** ''Dawn of the Clans'' has the male cats Clear Sky and later One-Eye as chief villains, but also the she-cat [[spoiler:Star Flower, although she later undergoes a FaceHeelTurn.]]

* All the Claymores in ''{{Manga/Claymore}}'' are women because all of the ''male'' Claymores would [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Awaken]] almost immediately.


Added DiffLines:

* There are no male Confessors in ''Literature/SwordOfTruth'' because they would inevitably abuse their powers. [[spoiler: Male babies a confessor bears are killed shortly after birth.]]

* Literature/TheBible often averts this with women who initiate the temptation against men: Eve encouraged Adam to bite the apple after she did it first (although, the serpent may count as a male tempter), Jezebel was the driving force behind the persecution of the prophets while her husband Ahab just went along with it, and the "strange woman" of Proverbs 5 is definitely TheVamp seducing a virtuous man rather than being herself an innocent victim of seduction. On the other hand, it's easier to see it as played straight with that other famous Vamp Delilah (it seems she was really led on by bribes from the Philistine); or Hosea's [[ReallyGetsAround extremely unfaithful wife Gomer]], who surely can be interpreted as being more of a low-self-esteem woman who is easily influenced by any man who offers her a gift.
