** Zig-zagged in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'': For the most part, Rey uses a staff for most of the film, and and Finn uses a blaster. However they don't use those weapons exclusively, since Rey does use a blaster later on and [[spoiler:they both, at different points, use Anakin's lightsaber, which Rey ends up with]].

* ''Series/StrangerThings'' plays this trope straight via a subverted inversion. Johnathon plans to use a gun on [[spoiler:the monster]], while Nancy practices strikes with a baseball bat. After they both actually try the gun on old cans, though, Nancy proves to be a superior shot, so they trade weapons.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' trilogy can both play this straight and invert, depending on Shepard's combat class. For example, played straight with Soldier Male!Shepard and [[MagicalGirl Liara]] as his teammate/love interest, but inverted with [[FoeTossingCharge Vanguard]] Female!Shepard and [[FriendlySniper Garrus]] as her combat partner/love interest.

** Heavily [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] in terms of the PlayerCharacter throughout the series, at least until it did away with classes and attributes starting with ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''. The starting Skills (including weapon skills) were determined by the race of character, regardless of gender. However, gender did account for differences in the starting ''Attributes'' (Strength, Agility, etc.). Males in the races with gender attribute differences tended to have higher starting physical attributes, making them (initially) better with melee weapons while females tended to have higher starting mental attributes, making them (initially) better spell casters.

The difference is small enough to be made up within the first level or two if you so choose, leading the {{Purely Aesthetic Gender}}s.

** In the series' backstory, LostOrphanedRoyalty and future Queen of Morrowind, Barenziah, was the [[RulingFamilyMassacre sole survivor of her noble Dunmeri family]] and was placed into foster care with the Imperial loyalist Count and Countess of Darkmoor until she became of age to take over as [[PuppetKing Vassal Queen]]. She Played With the trope, as she wanted to train in combat with the sons of the Count and Countess, but was forbidden. She was given a bow to practice with instead. However, when the adults weren't around, she would spar with the boys and bested them more often than not.

Added DiffLines:

* The whole Shifter Romance subgenre is built in part on this trope, at least for the classic pairing type. The man's a [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent shapeshifter]], giving him close-in strength and fighting power, all playing up how he'll protect her from any threat that gets too close. The woman is a non-shifter, so that (though she may have to TakeALevelInBadass during the story) she's either a ranged magician, or else a BadassNormal or FightsLikeANormal and gets by with guns.
