* This trope is an annual event for the genus ''Antechinus'', tiny Australian marsupials that resemble shrews. During their breeding season, which takes place over just a few days, males frantically do '''nothing''' but seek out females and copulate with them, never stopping to eat, drink, sleep, or attend to cuts and scrapes they suffer in their madcap TestosteronePoisoning-driven quest to breed. By the time all the females are pregnant, the males are all dead or dying from infections, organ failure, and sheer exhaustion. Then it's [[LadyLand up to the ladies]] to raise the next generation of females and sex-suicidal males.

* Occurred in an episode of ''Series/BlakesSeven'', where a group of women were trying to exterminate all men. Avon summed it up nicely: "It's a problem, isn't it? You can have war between races, war between cultures, war between planets. But once you have war between the sexes, you eventually run out of people."

* Possibly the most influential work on this trope, though now almost totally forgotten, ''Manga/{{Marginal}}'' built on the success of ''Manga/KazeToKiNoUta'' to cement the ShounenAi genre, and was the flagship of a generation of Japanese women writing sci-fi. In it, a disease wiped out all women except one "Holy Mother", from whom all post-catastrophe humans, all male, are born.

When all the women die off, the story is usually less about politics or gender issues and more about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. These stories almost always take place AfterTheEnd, in either a cruel {{dystopia}} or a chaotic ScavengerWorld. Either way, the clear implication is usually that without the "[[WomenAreWiser calming presence]]" of women, the men will immediately nuke themselves to hell out of [[ImAManICantHelpIt sexual frustration]] and other [[ARealManIsAKiller "manly" demands]]. Such a setting is of course highly prone to feature brutal [[DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale male-on-male rape]] to add to the NightmareFuel, or for [[AuthorAppeal other reasons]]. Note this can happen with the women-left scenario, but much less often and with the rape part nonexistent. The sexist nature of the situation is more complicated still if the men are "fighting over" the remaining women (in which case, there's at least a ''reason'' for conflict).

* In the ''TabletopGame/CurseOfStrahd'' module for ''{{TabletopGame/Ravenloft}}'', the entire Dusk Elf race was subjected to this at the orders of [[BigBad Strahd von Zarovich]], who had been infatuated with a female Dusk Elf named Patrina and arranged to marry her before her people discovered her plans and stoned her to death. Enraged at being denied his bride, Strahd ordered every female Dusk Elf to be hunted down and executed by Rahadin, his NumberTwo and chamberlain, [[GenocideFromTheInside himself a Dusk Elf]] who had betrayed his own people when Strahd first conquered them.

* The SoBadItsGood anime OVA ''Anime/{{ICE}}'' takes place InAWorld where all men died after the space station Mir unexpectedly crashed into the ocean while still carrying experimental toxic substances. [[GirlsLove Yuri]] ensues, obviously.

* ''Film/HellComesToFrogtown'', in which "Rowdy" Roddy Piper plays Sam Hell, one of the last fertile men on Earth (and is thus in high demand). Along with Sandahl Bergman doing a sexy dance and a man-sized frog [[spoiler:with a three-headed penis! Who utters [[SoBadItsGood the classic line]] after Bergman's dance: "You have aroused the three-headed snake!"]].

* ''{{XXXenophile}}'' had one story where a naked male time traveler shows up in a woman's closet. He's from a future where all women have been wiped out and men reproduce by cloning. One side effect of the gendercide is that they got rid of all wars, starvation and diseases, and generally built an utopia, but now they've began to wonder if those "women" weren't good for something after all and maybe they should be brought back, so he's sent through time to conduct research. Thus, much acrobatic research is had, after which he concludes that women are a ''very'' good thing to have after all. [[spoiler:Turns out they're actually a normal couple roleplaying.]]

* Due to his irrational hatred of girls, [[WebAnimation/TheAutisticWorldOfTheAutist Brian]] attempted to do this in one episode in an attempt to do a FinalSolution. [[GoneHorriblyWrong It doesn't work as well as he hoped]].
