* Jason Robert Brown seems to enjoy this trope. ''Theatre/SongsForANewWorld'' has a cast of two men and two women, spread evenly amongst the VoiceTypes, while ''TheLastFiveYears'' has ''a'' man and woman as its cast. ''Theatre/{{Thirteen}}'' breaks the mold, though it's sort of required to due to its ArcNumber.

** ''Music/GhostQuartet'' is performed by two men and two women. Deconstructed in that each performer plays many different characters, meaning that there end up being more female characters than male, but reconstructed in that it is revealed at the end that all of the characters played by each performer are really just one character reincarnated.

* The titular team in ''TabletopGame/{{Crimestrikers}}'', more or less. The book has entries for ten women, eight men, and a male-identifying robot. Add the [[TheMedic team medic]], who doesn't get his own entry, and the ratio becomes 10/10.

** Let's just say that this is a thing that this franchise does. ''VisualNovel/DanganronpaV3'' has an even split just like DR2, and the spinoff ''VideoGame/UltraDespairGirls'' has 8 characters with significant screen time - four of each gender.

** While this is initially played straight in ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpaV3'', having the same evenly split 16 characters of the other main games [[spoiler: it is ultimately subverted at the end of the game, in which only ''three'' characters survive, two female (Maki and Himiko) and one male (Shuichi)]]
