* All of the Covenant Aliens in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' are male.

to:

* All of ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'': Virtually all the Covenant Aliens soldiers we see in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' the games are male.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.

* 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.

* The ''LordOfTheRings'' movies had only male orcs in line with its source material, though in the final movie there are two orcs that appear to be strikingly female, like the one who orders for the catapults during the Minas Tirith battle, and some orcs, such as the one who inspects a freshly born Uruk-Hai in ''Fellowship'', were played by women. Whether they were meant to ''be'' orc women, who knows...
* ''StarWars Episode II'' and onward had the Clone Troopers, clones of Jango Fett.

* All Orcs mentioned by name in ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'' novels are male. However, since Tolkien had written that "Orcs multiply after the fashion of the Children of Ilúvatar", i.e. elves and men, there must have been female Orcs somewhere, but given the times and his source materials Tolkein probably just discounted them. There aren't a lot of females on the heroic side either, and all but one (two, depending upon how you count Galadriel) are little more than window dressing.
* 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.
** When OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame, Our Dwarves are usually all male as well, or at least, dwarf women aren't recognizable as women to non-Dwarves.
* The [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Koloss]] from ''Franchise/{{Mistborn}}'' are all male, and the one Koloss questioned about it has a hard time grasping the concept of gender at all (and he was a ''smart'' one). [[spoiler: This is because Koloss are an artificial race created by transforming humans with BlackMagic- they don't technically have sexes, because they don't reproduce sexually, but are generally referred to as male]].

* SamusIsAGirl, yet all space pirates in ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' are referred to as male. In fact, almost everything Samus fights is either male or gender-neutral. Of the few female characters other than Samus, [[EvilTwin Dark Samus and the SA-X]] are only "female" by the technicality of being Samus's EvilTwin, and the Mother Brain is a giant brain in a jar and displays no obvious female characteristics. The only enemies Samus ever fought who were definitely female were the Metroid Queen and Gandrayda.

Turns out that they're [[spoiler: female dragons with an extreme case of sexual dimorphism and the ability to produce daughters through parthenogenesis. They need to mate with male dragons to produce more males and periodically introduce some genetic variation into the females]]

* In FinalFantasyTactics, the thieves have an ability "Steal Heart" that charms the opponent, but only those of the opposite gender of the user. All monsters are considered male with regards to this ability, which means [[GameFavoredGender female thieves have an advantage]]. [[BellisariosMaxim Don't think about this too hard.]]

* Rich Burlew explained in a Q&A about ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' that he deliberately made the Hobgoblin army all identical males in contrast with the variety of human soldiers (of both genders) as a quick way of characterizing the Hobgoblins as evil {{Mook}}s.
