* ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}} II'' has an Amazon character, but their description in the manual averts this. The Amazons only allow women to be warriors, but it's because they live in a jungle environment, where [[HandWave the female body is better suited for combat]]. [[SarcasmMode Just like in real life.]] Men are allowed every right and privilege women are, and can fill all other social roles - they're even allowed into the priesthood, despite the central deity being female. The only difference between male and female social standing is that men aren't allowed in the military.

* In the ''[[CoDominium Warworld]]'' novel ''Blood Vengeance'', a hidden society of "Amazons" lives in an isolated valley and is largely regarded as legend. They reproduce by having a pact with several nomad tribes who, every few years, return to a meeting ground and mate with the women warriors; male children are given to the tribes (or [[UnusualEuphemism "to the earth"]]-- i.e., killed), and females are kept and raised by the women. The pact also, of course, includes vows of absolute secrecy about the whole arrangement.

* A generational version has happened in the past after wars. After WorldWarI and WorldWarII, some remote villages lost so many of their marriage-age male population to battle that the very few men returning were a valuable commodity indeed - even if they were missing an arm or a leg.

* In ''Literature/{{Hellspark}}'', Oloitokitok's home planet has a society where women rule and men are regarded as property; the fact that he's managed to obtain an education and a scientific career says a lot about him (and about his wife, whose declaration that she thinks of him as a sister -- ie., a fellow human being worthy of being related to as an equal -- is in context powerful and moving).

* In the ''AWizardInRhyme'' fantasy novel series a land of Amazons is introduced where it's fine for males to come 'visit' in order to ensure production of more Amazons but only for a limited time (a week I think), stay just a day too long and the male is hunted and killed by the Amazons. The Amazons suffer horribly (so to speak) when the main protagonist and another young male in love independently around the same time seek to pass through the land as a man who refuses to mate and stay true to his loved one is considered a prize so rare that such a man can stay within its borders as long as desired and have virtually anything within reason he desires.
