* In the ''OgreBattle'' series, males and females have entirely different classes available to them, with no class in common. The starting female class is Amazon, while the starting male class is Fighter. Some classes are obvious counterparts (The female Dragon Tamer and the male Beast Master for example). Some of the ''TacticsOgre'' games however do not follow this formula, instead being like ''FinalFantasyTactics'' where a handful of classes were gender-specific (like Dragon Tamer, Beast Master, Witch and Dragoon), others are shared amongst both genders (like Knights, Wizard, Clerics and Fighters).

Wrong Virgin trope
* In ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'', the (male) [[TheFourGods gods]] can only be summoned by a girl, who ''must'' also be [[NatureAdoresAVirgin a virgin]]. Men and boys, however, can serve as guardians for the Priestess, if they are granted the right powers.

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', there exist four maidens with amazing powers representing the four seasons. If one dies, the power will transfer to the last woman she was thinking of at the time of death, or a completely random woman. The power can also be transferred to another woman while alive with special equipment. Ozpin and his peers specifically say a man cannot hold their powers.

* In ''ShikabaneHime'' only young women within a certain age range can be made into Shikabane Hime. * In ''KinnikumanNisei'', it is declared that the "Burning Inner Strength" can only be attained by the males in the Kinnikuman family.

* Jean Auel's ''ClanOfTheCaveBear'' is a dual literary example. The neanderthals featured in this novel live their lives along sharply divided gender lines, and due to how their brains are structured, cannot do otherwise. It's not tradition that says male neanderthals hunt and females take care of the kids. Rather, they are literally hardwired into these roles and cannot function when taken out of them. Ayla, being a modern human, can and does, deeply disturbing them in the process. Yet, ''her'' jaw almost drops when she sees Jondalar, a man, cooking.

** There IS a male equivilent - [[spoiler:Melleck Xaos is the Worlock]]. Their powers are a bit different, so the rule still applies.

* ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}''. Oh, gosh, how ridiculous the TechnoBabble justification is...the only real justification is that they were based on the poorly understood [=HiME=]'s from ''Anime/{{Mai-Hime}}'' (who had the same restriction, justified by the fact that its magic).

* In Salamando's "Sex Mage World" stories, a mysterious event grants all women 19 and older the powers of Sex Magic, a combination of sexual-themed magic and psychic abilities that allow women to read, manipulate, and control men's bodies and minds with ease. Only women have this power, and most women are immune to one another's powers, while men are always vulnerable to it. However, while men don't gain magic of their own, their lust provides the necessary ethereal energies which fuel Sex Magic spells; while women can provide some of their own energy, it greatly pales in comparison to how much a man can produce. This naturally creates a completely female-dominated society as a result, since men can't be trusted in positions of power, and their societal purpose quickly becomes being the fuel and playthings of the Sex Mage women.

* In ''VideoGame/FatalFrame'', it is noted that women are much more likely to develop a spiritual sixth sense, though there are rare cases that a man gains one. This is used to justify why the majority of the games' protagonists are female. The game also uses a ridiculous version when it claims that women are too weak to move furniture out of the way, as an attempt to justify a few {{Broken Bridge}}s.

** In ''FinalFantasyTactics'', only female characters can be dancers, and only male characters can be bards. This is in spite of the fact that ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'', which used a similar class-changing system, had no such restriction. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' wasn't restricted, either, so now we have to deal with [[{{Squick}} Galka flamenco dancers.]] Thanks a ''lot'', SE. ** ''RagnarokOnline'' had something similar for Bards and Dancers. ** In ''FinalFantasyTactics'' and ''[[FinalFantasyTacticsA2 A2]]'', the StandardStatusEffect preventing Ribbon accessory can only be worn by female characters. In A2 that means only [[OneGenderRace Viera, Gria,]] Adelle, [[OptionalPartyMember and]] [[spoiler:Frimelda]], but Humes, Bangaa, and Nu Mou can learn a passive ability that lets them wear one anyway. In ''Advance'' all generic teammates but [[OneGenderRace Viera]] have AmbiguousGender so only Viera and Ritz (who is a Viera for gameplay purposes) can wear them.

* ''Anime/CrossAnge'': ** All Norma seen are female, and it's never suggested that any male Norma have ever existed ([[spoiler:Tusk doesn't have Mana-powers, but he's an Old Human, not a Norma born of Mana-users, nor does he have a Norma's AntiMagic]]). The show never explains why this is the case. ** Among the DRAGON's: [[spoiler:only the females go back and forth at will between human and draconic form, and their dragon forms are pretty much universally smaller and weaker than male DRAGON's, with the exception of Aura, their progenitor. It's never made clear if male DRAGON's cannot become human, or if it's just a societal custom to remain draconic after a certain age.]]
