* This is why Ryuunosuke Fujinami was RaisedAsTheOppositeGender in ''UruseiYatsura''; her father was obsessed with the idea that only a ''boy'' could be a worthy heir to his family legacy of... running a ratty little beachside store. This is used for roughly equal parts comedy and to paint Mr. Fujinami as [[AbusiveParents creepy and insane]].

* In Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/{{Chalion}} The Curse of Chalion]]'', Roya Orico grasped that the [[spoiler:titular curse]] lay with him and convinced his Royina to secretly lie with his (evil) Chancellor (who was at least polite about it) and said Chancellor's even more evil brother (who was not). When that plan proved unsuccessful (and Royina Sara threatened to kill herself), he summoned his much younger half brother Teidez to court along with his sister Iselle. [[spoiler:Bujold eventually subverts it when Iselle (the bright one to begin with) is left the last of Fonsa's line alive when the titular curse is finally broken.]]

* In ''Film/PansLabyrinth'', Captain Vidal is determined to have a male heir no matter the cost to his wife or his stepdaughter.
* The fact that only males can inherit the throne in ''Film/{{Stardust}}'' means that Princess Una isn't a target of her other brothers, who are busy killing each other off because the law also demands that there be only one male contender. It helps they have no idea where she is.
* Emperor UsefulNotes/{{Caligula}} from ''Caligula'' refused to marry Caesonia until she bore him a son. When his sister Drusilla pointed out that it would be impossible to tell if the child was actually his, he replied that he would simply keep her under constant guard. The guards would be homosexuals. Who'd been castrated.

* PlayedWith in the ''WesternAnimation/HortonHearsAWho'' film: in Whoville, the position of mayor passes from parent to oldest child, and the firstborn [=McDodd=] child, [[SilentSnarker JoJo]], just happens to be [[OutnumberedSibling the only son]] with [[MassiveNumberedSiblings 96 younger sisters]]. As a result, he's still the one [[BumblingDad Nedd]] gives most of his attention to.

Added DiffLines:

** The Conclave expansion allows toning down this, by introducing a (technology-unlocked) set of laws representing women's status in your domain. A sufficiently high tier gives access to Absolute Cognatic succession even if you aren't Basque or Cathar, and the top tier removes the relation penalty for female heirs or rulers.

* In Creator/RobertEHoward's stories of Literature/ConanTheBarbarian after he became king, several times it is a plot point that Conan's death creates a problem, as he has no son. Oddly enough, we never see any pressure on him to marry and have one, though in other stories he does eventually get married and have a son.

* Poor Eva Ushiromiya from ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi''. She and her father knew she was more competent and a better fit as the heir than her older brother, but their father refused to allow her to be the heir. [[AltarTheSpeed But then she married before Krauss]], had a child before Natsuhi (and Natsuhi never had a son whereas Eva did), and groomed him to be the perfect heir to steal the title from the incompetent Krauss. [[spoiler:[[AwesomeMomentOfCrowning Oh, and when she solves the epitaph...]]]]

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' plays this straight in Hoshido and averts it in Nohr. In ''Birthright'', you learn that since heir apparent Xander [[spoiler:died at the end of the war]], Camilla is nominally next in line for the Nohrian throne, but she chooses to AbdicateTheThrone, and Leo becomes King. In ''Conquest'', when Hinoka becomes queen of Hoshido, she admits that she never expected to become queen since she always assumed heir apparent Ryoma or, God forbid something happened to him, her younger brother Takumi would become king. [[spoiler:Too bad they both die late in the war.]]
