It should be noted in male/female same-species examples given here that it ''is'' possible for traits to be sex-linked. Since human females have two X chromosomes and males have one X and one Y (usually; there are cases where it is not so clear), diseases or other things can be restricted to one sex. One example is colorblindness; about 5.8% of males, but less than 1% of females, are colorblind in some way or another (although it should be noted that males get their X chromosome from their mother, so whether one's father is colorblind has no influence on whether one is colorblind himself). (Cats actually ''have'' sex-linked coat patterns that are probably the closest thing to real-life GenderEqualsBreed, although coat patterns can occur in multiple breeds: almost all calico and tortoiseshell cats are female.) This can be even more true with some insect species that have fewer chromosomes to worry about. At least one species of ants actually has the genetic material of the two sexes completely separate.

* In ''Literature/HeroesOfOlympus'' satyrs and nymphs can reproduce. Male children are satyrs and female children are nymphs. Since we never see female satyrs or male nymphs anywhere in Rick Riordan's Camp Half Blood universe, this might be a case of One Gender Species.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', when fishmen and merfolk have children, the child will either be a pure fishman or a pure merman/mermaid, not a hybrid, due to the special genetics of their breed which means that the children don't get their genes from their parents, but instead from one of their ancestors. Incidentally, it seems that are many more fishmen than fishwomen and many more mermaids than mermen.

Added DiffLines:

* BojackHorseman has evidence for and against this being a hard and fast rule.
** Played straight with Charlotte (a deer) and Kyle (a human) and their two kids, Penny (a deer) and Trip (a human).
** Averted in [=BoJack's=] dream sequence in "Downer Ending", in which he imagines he and Charlotte are married and their child Harper is a horse. It is debatable whether a dream would follow real-world rules.

* Lampshaded in ''Webcomic/TheClassMenagerie'' web-comic, where gender and species are explained as being based on that of the parents.
* Averted in ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell''--while still managing to [[ArtisticLicenseBiology fail biology]]--in which little Coney, daughter of a female wolf and a male rabbit, is an omnivorous bunny; she's mostly represented in the strip as being carnivorous, much to the surprise of a lot of her prey, but she can and does eat vegetables as well.

However, given that the majority of the characters in the show are DogFaces and the concept of "breeds" does not seem to exist in the Goof Troop continuity, Pete may in fact be a dog in this series, making this an example of the supertrope StrongFamilyResemblance.

* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/{{The Fairly OddParents}}'' television movie, ''Channel Chasers'', where in an improved future shows a grown-up Timmy (who has married his AbhorrentAdmirer Tooty), with two children; Timmy s' son looks like him, but wears a different hat, has black hair like Tootie, and a pointy nose. Timmy s' daughter looks like a female version of himself, with better teeth and tweezed eyebrows, and wears similar sunglasses and clothes to Tootie, and has a hairstyle similar to Timmy's childhood crush Trixie (as Timmy's eventual marriage was meant to be a secret at this point)

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is surprisingly good at averting this. Nine out of ten ponies do not directly resemble their parents. A few ponies significantly resemble a parent (such as Rarity and Pumpkin Cake, who both look like their fathers), others share apparent physical traits (Sweetie Belle is white like her father, Rainbow Dash has her fathers hair and Pinkie Pie has her mother's eye color), and many more seem to instead resemble relatives (Applejack and Apple Bloom are shown to look like distant aunts).

* At the end of ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'', their puppies are three pure-bred Cockers like Lady, and the boy Scamp who looks just as much a lovable mongrel as his father. They should ALL be mongrels to one degree or another. In the film sequel ''Disney/LadyAndTheTrampII:ScampsAdventure'' the cockers are all female, but [[ComicStrip/{{Scamp}} the earlier newspaper strip]] [[AdaptationDisplacement on which it was partially based]] averts this by making one of the Cockers a boy.

Added DiffLines:

* In the made-for-TV movie {{Series/Hercules}}, wood spirits' gender determines what race they are. Satyrs are always male and nymphs are always female, a child between the two will always be the same race as the gender they share with their parent. A human relationship with a nymph will always result in another human regardless of sex. [[spoiler: Hercules ends up fathering a human son with the his second wife, the nymph Deianeira.]]
