The UnfortunateImplications for men is that men are shallow and [[AllMenArePerverts only after one thing]], thus they don't care if a woman is a dynamic, active character, and that women have no worth beyond their looks. Also, male characters will end up pulling more than their own weight, [[HystericalWoman emotionally]] and [[MenAreTheExpendableGender physically]], in works where this trope is in effect.

* This is the gender norm in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''--men are expected to bear arms and fight while women are expected to sit around and keep house. Arthur "[[RedBaron The Sword of the Morning]]" and Ashara Dayne, siblings whose deaths in the aftermath of Robert's Rebellion were much-romanticized as a result of this trope, exemplify this; Arthur was a MasterSwordsman and member of the Kingsguard while Ashara was WorldsMostBeautifulWoman at the time. Characters that subvert these expectations, such as Brienne of Tarth and Asha Greyjoy (both warrior women) are met with derision.

* The [[CostumePorn many, many armor sets]] of ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' tend to abide by this trope. The male version will often look tough and hide the wearer's face, while the female version will generally focus on looking graceful, keep the wearer's face visible, and in some cases, boast a little {{Fanservice}}. The image up top is a more specific example: The male Aelucanth armor set is designed to invoke the image of an intimidating insect, while the female version strongly resembles a butterfly.
