Added DiffLines:

* Lampshaded in ''VideoGame/TitanQuest'', where you end up fighting hordes of assorted beastmen of various types (Satyrs, Centaurs, Crocodilemen, Tigerfolk and demons of Hades) but they're usually all males. The LampshadeHanging comes from a letter you can find on a rare boss which actually points out how odd is that there are no female satyrs or male [[CatGirl Maenads]] around, and fears that they'll be called sexists.
* Downplayed in ''Videogame/{{Drakensang}}'': while there ''are'' female Dwarves (and you can istantly recognize their gender with a look), the playable chatacter can only choose male Dwarves. All Orcs, Ogres and Trolls (in both games) are male though, while Goblins are mostly male with a single female NPC in both games.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/TitanQuest'' again, female-only monsters include different types of beastmen (well, beastwomen) such as Maenads, Gorgons, Harpies, Lamiae and no less than three different races of all-female demonessess in Hades.
* Sensibly enough, it's impossible to play a male Amazon in ''VideoGame/{{Drakensang}}''. Or encounter one for that matter.

** Daleks are entirely genderless. Gendered beings of other species who are converted into Daleks become genderless in the process.
** Similarly, Cybermen lose all gender identity when they are converted, although one "partially converted" cyberwoman appearing in an early ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' episode was obviously still female. Classic-series Silurians showed no perceivable females, although the new series have quite a few of them.
** The Weeping Angels all appear as feminine statues, though given their power it's unclear whether it's merely their "stone" appearance.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse,'' it's eventually revealed that all the monsters are [[WasOnceAMan Gems who have been]] [[TheCorruption corrupted]] by a FantasticNuke; thus they are thus all female, [[OneGenderRace like the Gems themselves]].

You wouldn't guess this from looking, as their corrupted forms are too inhuman to resemble any gender, often not even looking like animals.

* ''Breeding Season'' (an H game) treats all monsters as nearly {{One Gender Race}}s, to the point that male CatFolk or female wolves are considered mutant strains. The sole exceptions are elves and humans.

* 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.
