* This is somewhat {{inverted|Trope}} in ''LightNovel/MadanNoOuToVanadis''. While most of the men do fight in close quarters, the main character Tigre fights exclusively with a bow, and the female Vanadis who surround him fight exclusively with close combat weapons such as swords, spears and staffs.

* In ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' Anakin wields a lightsaber and Padme uses a blaster. Of the main characters in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' movies, the only ones who use lightsabers are all male. In the original trilogy, Leia is the only one whose blaster bolts never miss. However, there are female lightsaber-wielding Jedi in minor supporting roles.

* In ''Fanfic/OliviaGoesWest'' (a crossover between ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'' and ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail''), this trope is inverted when [[CrossoverShip Fievel and Olivia]] try to rescue Olivia's father from [[spoiler:Jeremiah's gold mine]] a second time and are armed by helpful Mousehicans with a tomahawk and a bow. Fievel figures that due to his previous experiences with [[BratsWithSlingshots a slingshot]], he would make better use of the bow, leaving Olivia to pick up the tomahawk.

* ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'': While both Max and Furiosa show ability in both melee and ranged combat, Furiosa is definitely [[ImprobableAimingSkills the better shot]] of the two, while Max does more damage against the War Boys close up, including going toe-to-toe with Rictus Erectus and an implication of what he did offscreen to the Bullet Farmer and his mooks using a [[KukrisAreCool kukri]] and a fuel can.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilRevelations2:'' Inverted when you are playing as Barry and Natalia. Barry is an adult man, and uses guns as his main weapon. Natalia is a little girl, and her only weapon is a brick. She can throw it, but it is more powerful if used close-up for stealth attacks.

* Subverted in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' where in Lie Ren a male fighter uses 2 sub-machine guns as weapons, where as his Partner Nora Valkyrie uses a Giant Hammer. Also averted for most other characters since most other weapons used in the show transform between a Ranged and a Melee Weapon.

and a Melee Weapon.his female sidekick Neopolitan. Roman usually spends his time shooting at people with his gun-cane (though he can hold his own in close combat), while Neo is an expert hand-to-hand combatant, and her umbrella doesn't seem to have any ranged capabilities at all (unusual in this series).

* In ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' this is averted for human characters, as any hunter can use any weapon, and ''inverted'' for the signature BattleCouple monsters of the first game, the Raths: Male Rathalos is a flying wyvern that keeps watch from the air while its' mate Rathian patrols her territory on the ground. The actual moves used by them reflect this during gameplay, as Rathian is more fixated on using ground-based attacks, usually only taking flight to administer a tail-swat with her poison stingers or to deliver clawing strikes, and saves most of her fireballs for ground-to-ground fire, whereas the Rathalos is much more prone to taking to the sky to blow fireballs, even having a sequence in which he will circle the battlefield from very high up, lobbing a series of fireballs at hunters before returning to closer range.

Part of this is due to cultural taboos against showing [[WouldntHitAGirl women getting hit]]. It may also have to do with the fact that a [[{{Stripperiffic}} skimpy costume]] looks [[ChainmailBikini more plausible]] on someone who isn't in melee. While {{Action Girl}}s have long since become commonplace these days, heroines are still more likely to have ranged powers than the guys. To some extent, physical reality is also reflected in that women tend not to have the muscle men do, so would be better off with ranged weapons.
