* In just about any fantasy setting, it is rare for female goblins, orcs, trolls, ogres, or giants to be mentioned. There are of course exceptions (such as Literature/{{Xanth}}, {{Shrek}}, and tabletop games run by particularly forward-minded {{Game Master}}s), but they tend to be rare.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'': Virtually all the Covenant soldiers we see in the games are male (the ones that ''have'' a gender, anyways), though we see a lot more females in the expanded universe. This is justified by the Elites and Brutes, who have patriarchal warrior societies. This is also justified by the Jackals in a different way; they live in a matriarchal society where the females do the commanding and the males do the fighting.

''VideoGame/{{Halo 5}} finally introduces a Sangheli female as a member of the Arbiter's "heretical" resistance cell, but only as a voice over a radio.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', almost all of the beastmen are a mixture of male and females, but they all have builds that look more suited to males. The Anata are a race of snake people that are exclusively all female and they find the concept of other races needing males to reproduce a little odd.

* Zig-zagged in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}''. Most of the monsters the characters face are Male Youma, but most Awakened Being are female, prompting a shocked response from one character on there even ''being'' a male Awakened.
** After this point in the series, though, the author seemed to forget that male Awakened are supposed to be rare, because most Awakened Beings later encountered appear to be male...

* Zig-zagged in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}''. Most The [[AmazonBrigade all-female]] Claymore warriors mostly fight male Youma, but the most powerful Youma are the Awakened Beings, who are female due to [[WasOnceAMan being former Claymores themselves]]. One of the monsters first big {{Plot Twist}}s of the story comes when the characters face are Male Youma, but most encounter a ''male'' Awakened Being are female, prompting a shocked response from one character on there even ''being'' a male Awakened.

Being. [[spoiler:In fact ''most'' Awakened Beings later encountered appear of note seem to be male...male - unknown to the protagonists at the time, the reason Claymores are always women is because the Organization's initial male Claymores were much more vulnerable to Awakening, and large numbers of them managed to escape before they could be put down. Due to improvements in Claymore technology over time, however, younger Awakened Beings tend to be stronger than older ones of equal rank, and the absolute strongest enemies in the series are female.]]

* While most male superheroes have at least one or two well-known female villains, the vast majority of Franchise/SpiderMan's rogues are men. The few villainesses he has faced (such as Calypso) have not entered pop culture quite like the Green Goblin or Venom.

* All the Mogwai and Gremlins seen in the ''Film/{{Gremlins}}'' movies are (ambiguously) male save one female in the second movie, who was only such because it had gotten a hold of a gender-changing potion in a lab. Any reproductive processes not involving a splash of water are not discussed.
