* In [[http://www.valsalia.com/ Out-of-Placers]] yinglets have five to seven males for every female. Their enclaves are more-or-less ruled by matriarchs who decide which males get the honor of mating with the females. Though most other females are secluded from the rest of the enclave and there's a council of patriarchs with some not insignificant degree of power.



* Yinglet society in ''Webcomic/OutOfPlacers'' appears to be a Type One (rare species enslaved) as each enclave keeps their rare females closely guarded in their midst but the protagonist soon learns that they're actually a Type 2 society with the females using the power of their central position and their control over breeding to effectively run things from behind the scenes.

* The two warring factions in the GirlsLove SpaceOpera ''Webcomic/{{Angels 2200}}'' appear to have chosen opposite versions of this trope following the male {{gendercide}}: The Colonials appear to have opted for version one with males in command positions while the [[LadyLand Terrans]] appear to have opted for version two since none of their males have ever appeared at all, which is not surprising, considering the Terrans created the [[TheVirus Gendercide plague]] in the first place. One Terran pilot claims that her father didn't die in the plague: he abandoned his family to become a playboy afterwards

* In the ''GarrettPI'' Verse, goblins produce five or six male offspring per female born. Goblin culture is too macho-oriented to settle for polyandry, gay relationships or equal rights, so one-third of their males die in fights over females before age 23. Female goblins with any sense tend to ditch their husbands and run off to the human lands, first chance they get.

* In China, male children currently outnumber females about 117 to 100 in the recent generations. Since the beginning of the One-Child Policy in 1978, female fetuses have been aborted more often than males and newborn girls are sometimes killed or abandoned; this is the result of the law interacting with the tradition in China is that the men carry the family name and take care of their parents in their old age. This is especially common in rural areas where traditional social norms may be the only safety net for the elderly. It is significantly less common in wealthier urban areas, where women have much greater access to education and jobs and their contribution to the household is viewed more equitably. The rural shortage of women has made it increasingly difficult for young men to find wives and has sometimes resulted in internal and international human trafficking because families are willing to pay substantial sums for a bride, consenting or not. The Chinese government has been working to raise the status of female children and end these practices but attitudes change more slowly than laws.

* Wen Spencer's ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' features a world where many more women are born than men; it's speculated to be around the rate of nine girls to every boy, but since male fetuses often miscarry and baby boys tend to die, the ratio is in fact even more skewed. Everything, therefore, is run by women while men are property to be traded and protected. There's mention that infanticide of girl babies actually still happens in this world; male children are valuable as investments and property, wheras girls must be trained and taught to work.

* ''[[Literature/{{Lensman}} Second Stage Lensmen]]'': The natives of Lyrane II have a strict one-child policy ... but it's one ''person'' per parent, the extremely rare male birth doesn't count because they aren't "persons". Males are only allowed to live until puberty because Lyranian science hasn't (yet) come up with any other way for a person to become pregnant. Once a given male has serviced his quota of persons, he's promptly killed.

* Boys are born slightly more often than girls but are slightly less likely to survive to adulthood, [[MenAreTheExpendableGender due to being far more likely to be the victims of violent crime]] as well as the fact that men are more likely to inherit certain genetic diseases like hemophilia due to only having one X chromosome, not to mention that a large number of high-risk jobs were primarily male-only until recently (construction, law enforcement, the military.) The differences (on the order of 1% either way, depending upon culture) are far too small to constitute rarity.

* Men in ''Manga/{{Ooku}} Ooku: the Inner Chambers]]'' land on this side of the line. When rather more than 75% of men die before adulthood from the endemic Redface Pox the survivors are protected from danger and strenuous activity wherever possible (women have taken over everything from farming to fishing to smithing). However men have also been crowded out of government (too stressful for their delicate constitutions) and few think twice about pimping out boys as young as fourteen to women seeking children. Male children are expected to provide a steady source of income to their families. Only wealthy women can afford to buy a man's exclusivity and marry him; only the shogun is powerful enough to have a harem of men kept for her exclusive use.
