Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Grim}}'':
** Hexenbiest are much more powerful, cunning, and dangerous than Zauberbiest, their male counterpart.
** Female Grimms get their powers decades earlier than male Grimms, meaning they have decades more experience and training at the same age. Also, female descendants are much more likely to inherit Grimm status than male descendants.

* In ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'', we have Princess Looma Red Wind, a member of the Tetramand species. In her culture, females can [[BestHerToBedHer only marry those who defeat them in combat]] because females of the species are larger and stronger than the males. Looma, however, is the smallest Tetramand we see, [[LargeRunt possibly a runt]]. Despite this, she ''still'' cannot find a husband because nobody can defeat her in combat. [[VictoryIsBoring She becomes increasingly frustrated with this]].

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, this is a trait of the Aureals (aka Golden Saints), a form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] in service to [[MadGod Sheogorath]]. They have a [[{{Matriarchy}} matriarchal]], [[ProudWarriorRace militaristic]] society, and as a race they are [[HonorBeforeReason haughty]], [[PunyEarthlings arrogant]], quick to anger, and cruel in their punishment. The females are significantly more powerful than the males.

* ''Disney/TheLionKing'': Nala, Simba's best friend and love interest, has easily beaten Simba in all their "fights". She pinned him twice in a row as cubs, and the second time was after Simba tackled her by surprise while she was smugging proudly after the first time. They get into a much more serious fight as adults, and although it seems much more even she still beats him the same way she did the first two times as kids, fliping him in midair and slamming him to the ground pinning him. She might have even killed him if he didn't recognize her from this move. [[spoiler:Although Simba does "beat" Nala eventually, pinning her himself, rolling down a hill romantically is hardly considered a fight.]]

* Eagles, or any other bird of prey. To give some context, a surefire way to figure out if a baby eagle is male or female is to wait until it grows up. If it's bigger than its father ''before'' it reaches full adulthood, it's a girl.

* While male lions are pretty fierce and threatening, and larger and stronger than the females, from an animals point of view (e.g. a zebra) they are actually less dangerous as male lions are used to having the females in the pride hunt for them. If a male lion is ousted by another and has to fend for themselves, they tend to make poor hunters because of lack of practice, and may starve to death.

If a male lion is ousted by another and has to fend for themselves, they tend to make poor poorer hunters because of lack of practice, their distinctive manes make it harder to sneak up on prey, and their bulk makes them slower, and may starve to death.



* Female wasps, bees, and ants are the only ones with the stingers. Males are actually short-lived and physically constructed for the sole purpose of serving as breeding tools; often, the male's genitals are derived from the structures as the female's stinger. After breeding season is done, the males (drones) are useless to the colony, and are driven out to die if not killed on the spot and their corpses disposed of with the colony's other refuse. Assuming they don't [[OutWithABang die in the process]], often in biologically horrendous ways - some species of bee have males that die from their ''gonads exploding''.

* Female deep-sea anglerfish take this to the extreme, being voracious predators several times bigger than the tiny parasitic males.


Added DiffLines:

* Female ''Photuris'' fireflies use EnthrallingSiren tactics to prey on other firefly species, mimicking their sexual displays' light-flash patterns to lure in males for lunch. Male ''Photuris'' are far more interested in mating than hunting.
