*** 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).

Added DiffLines:

*** 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.

** While ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' and its sequel give us racial classes, with all non-Viera, non-Gria except for a few plot-related examples being male, ''FinalFantasyTacticsA2'' gives us Al Cid, whose only abilities...are much better when he's surrounded by women.

* Third-edition Dungeons and Dragons had several mechanically-advantageous prestige classes restricted to female characters. It had a grand total of *one* male-only class, and that one [[EunuchsAreEvil requires the character to be castrated]].

* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon3'' GBC has different perks for both genders. The boy would get better at farming and using tools, but couldn't take care of some of the animals on his own, while the girl got better products from the animals and didn't technically need help with them or the fields, though she'd never get better with the fields. The girl was also the only one who could get sick, and while you could always get a game over from being a bad farmer only those who play as the girl get a game over if they marry someone.

* In ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'', there is a Seduction stat that allows you to achieve certain goals if you are female. The stat is available to males but it is pretty much useless for a male character. Then there's the bit where you can sleep with a female NPC but not a male NPC.

* ''Virtual Magic Kingdom,'' a now defunct MMORPG based on the Ride/DisneyThemeParks, had a number of character costumes you could dress your sprite in. Female sprites could wear any costume, even one emulating a blatantly male character such as Captain Hook, but male sprites were restricted from wearing Princess dresses and other girly costumes.
