** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' inverts ''Awakening's'' trend by tying the child units to their fathers, instead (except for the female Avatar and Aqua, who again get two children).

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/{{Munchkin}}'' has a few cards that are styled for both men and women; an Amazon will give free treasure to a woman but automatically try to kill a man, while a Male Chauvinist Pig will get an attack bonus against women but is otherwise a pushover, for example. And of course there is the gender change curse, which causes an automatic -5 to the cursed man/woman's next round of combat

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/AVeryLongRopeToTheTopOfTheSky'': The dresses that do special things like like halve MP consumption, guard against all status effects except for OneHitKill, and provide GradualRegeneration, can only be worn by girls, and there are no male equivalents.

*** Picking the female Avatar has Jakob join during chapter 6 while the male Avatar has Felicia join then. Jakob is generally considered the better character to have join first due to having a better attack stat and being able to reclass to a Paladin or Great Knight from the start, while Felicia often needs the Flame Shuriken to do damage and both of them can be overshadowed by Elise and Sakura for healing.

** Though not an inherent weakness in gender, the general predominance of male Pokémon in battles gives females with "Attract" or "Cute Charm" a distinct seductive advantage. Of course, this can be inverted if a ''male'' Pokémon with those abilities is put up against a majority of ''female'' opponents. More of a Metagaming point, but due to the fact that most of the [[CharacterTiers upper-tier]] {{Mons}} with gender overwhelmingly favor being male, competitive battlers that use seduction abilities get more use out of females when using them. It's generally not given much attention due to how infrequent such builds are (plus the fact that, regardless of the gender in question, any one of the multiple [[NoBiologicalSex genderless]] critters will stop the strategy cold).

*** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' follows up on this with Salandit; only females can evolve into Salazzle, and once again they have a 7:1 male[=/=]female gender ratio.

*** While this would seem to make the female Avatar thus the GameFavoredGender, they're actually ''both'' favored in different ways: The female Avatar has the freedom marry who she wants without consequence (whereas the male renders one child LostForever if he marries a first-generation non-Avatarsexual), but the male has twice as many gender-exclusive DLC classes as the female, and the best female-only skill, [[GameBreaker Warp]], is available to males through a Warp Scroll (whereas most of the male-exclusive skills are not available to females).

*** However, since Galeforce comes from a regular class (and thus can be passed down) whereas Dread Fighter is a DLC class (and thus its skills can't be passed down), a male second-generation unit can wind up with both...though this zigzags right back to making ''female'' the preferred Avatar gender since that will produce a male Morgan.


Added DiffLines:

**** Said ability is also available to any unit that uses an Exalt's Brand to gain Lucina's class; this class is exclusive to females, and is one of the few truly gender-locked skills since, like Warp for males, many of the skills exclusive to the male-only classes can be acquired through scrolls as well.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/ArcStyleBaseball3D'', there are four male body builds while only one female build, which allows for much greater versatility for men. These get faster pitches (if you choose a Macho pitcher); a wide, effective array of pitches (if you choose a Tall pitcher); very powerful batting (a Macho character); fast baserunning (a Small character); and assisted fielding (Normal build). Women are very good at hitting for contact, though, because they have the "Concentrate" ability, which greatly increases the chance of making contact with the ball. And female pitchers don't have a bad array of pitches, either (though not as good as the Tall males). So, overall, male characters are favored, but women are far from useless in any position.
