* While the sole consistent of becoming a Franchise/PrettyCure is being a girl, it seems to flip flop on other matters:
** Both ''Anime/FreshPrettyCure'' and ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure'' had a FreakyFridayFlip episode which had a Cure swap minds with their fairy partner. While the ''Fresh'' episode allowed Tarte-in-Inori's-body to transform into Cure Pine just fine despite Tarte being male, the ''Smile'' episode forced Miyuki-in-Candy's-body to transform into Cure Happy despite both being girls.
** Age is another odd thing. Young girls like ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure''[='s=] Ako and ''Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure''[='s=] Aguri are able to transform and older teenagers like ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure''[='s=] Yuri and ''Anime/KiraKiraPrecureALaMode''[='s=] Akira are shown being able to transform, but anyone older tends to flip flop as the post-series novels for ''Fresh'' and ''Smile'' have shown the girls transforming ten years later, yet an adult chosen to be a Cure in ''Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure'' can't get her stone to create a [=PreChan=] Mirror

* Only girls can become magical, well, girls, in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. There's no specific reason why there ''couldn't'' be a magical boy, but [[spoiler:Kyubey and the rest of his alien race specifically target pubescent girls because their emotional output is much higher than any other human demographic; it's just not worth the investment for them to try to harvest anyone else.]]

* All Pegasus Knights in the ''FireEmblem'' games are female, presumably because the Pegasi themselves won't allow men to pilot them. Wyverns, on the other hand, don't appear to be so picky, as there are Wyvern Riders of both sexes throughout the series.

** The fourteenth game, ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', finally averts this. Since ''Fates'' is the start of a [[NonLinearSequel new continuity]], this is explained as Hoshidan pegasi being more accepting of male riders than Archanaean/Jugdrali/Elibean/Magvellian/Tellian pegasi.

* The HumongousMecha of the AlternateUniverse in ''Anime/ParallelTroubleAdventureDual'' only work for girls, with the execption of Kazuki. [[spoiler: The reason Kazuki can is because his parallel twin is a Mecha.]] [[spoiler: The reason only girls can pilot the Mecha is a limiter that was put in place, because men could make them produce [[TenchiMuyo Light Hawk Wings]], which makes this an [[InvertedTrope inversion]].]]

* The priestesses of the FushigiYuugi stories are, as the name implies, all female, for no other reason than the four gods just aren't into guys. Most of the Seishi are men, however.

* ''MaiHime'' and ''MaiOtome'', only a girl (and in Mai Otome, a [[VirginPower virgin]]) can have a CHILD. This doesn't stop Yuuichi from trying to help out, nor Mashiro (in the Manga, where she is really a he) pulling a CMOA in the end.

* Questionably present in ''Manga/GunslingerGirl''. It's explained that only children can be turned into cyborg, and never explicitly stated that they have to be girls, but we never see any sign of a male cyborg.

Who knows why the device won't work for guys, a slight technical oversight perhaps, maybe because it runs on certain sources of energy? But who knows. The Girl Powered Device ain't going to work on men at all, for some reason, and no attempt is made to get it to do so.
