* Jack and Annie from MagicTreeHouse, although given their ages, Jack simply has been in school longer than his sister.
* Everything DanBrown has ever written is a inversion of this trope. His hero is always an expert in some area of humanities, while his heroine is an expert in some mathematical field.

* Subtly inverted in ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'', where John is an amateur magician while Jade is a big science geek, though you'd be forgiven for not noticing the trope before they have an argument about whether magic or science is better in Act 6.

* Inuit mythology has two "nature" deities: Sedna, ruler of the creatures of the seas, and Torngarsoak, master of animals of the land.

* In ''SidMeiersAlphaCentauri'', the hippie environmentalist faction is led by Deirdre Skye, a woman, and the scientific technological faction is led by Prokhor Zakharov, a man. ''Alien Crossfire'' then inverts this by introducing Aki Zeta-5, an EmotionlessGirl leader of an entire faction of [[TheSpock Spocks]], and Cha'Dawn, a young man who is supposedly a MessianicArchetype, head of the Cult Of Planet. The expansion also played it straight with the two alien factions: the Caretakers, led by a female sworn to preserve the planet, and the Usurpers, led by a male and hellbent on exploiting its power for their own gain. As an inversion, the expert hackers (Data Angels) and the ultra-militaristic faction (Spartans) are led by women, while the humanitarian Peacekeepers are led by a man.

** Although out of all of them, only Senju Harashima (the First Hokage) could use Mokuton naturally. Everyone else gained their abilities through ''his'' cells implanted into them); Yamato being the only one to survive Orochimaru's experiments [[spoiler: while the others got theirs later on.]]



* In the ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' universes, Poison Ivy and ComicBook/{{Catwoman}} fit the trope. Poison Ivy can control the growth of plants with her mind and is often depicted as being mothering to plants and so in harmony with the natural world to the point that she hates anything man-made. Catwoman is not so obvious, but she has an unexplained and very odd affinity with cats. In some continuities, even tigers will discard habitual ferociousness if she gives them the right look. In contrast, the logical/sciencey villains like Mr. Freeze or the Riddler tend to be male, although the Penguin does have an affinity with birds.

* ''ThirdRockFromTheSun'': Dick is a physicist and his love interest and co-worker Mary is an anthropologist. On the other hand, Dick is a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} alien while Mary is a cynical GrumpyBear. Ironically, Dick's mission as an alien observer of humanity makes him an anthropologist as well, just on a much larger scale.

Added DiffLines:

* A non-human example with Franchise/{{Godzilla}} and Film/{{Mothra}}. Once Mothra was fully integrated into the pantheon of the Godzilla universe following her success in her solo films, later films would establish her as the classically heroic feminine {{Foil}} to the antiheroic masculine Godzilla. A major different between them is that Godzilla is the mutated product of [[ILoveNuclearPower nuclear radiation]], while Mothra is solely a product of nature. Where Godzilla is a destructive [[IWorkAlone loner]] with a heart full of rage, Mothra is widely venerated as a benevolent guardian of Earth, she [[TechnicalPacifist seeks peaceful solutions whenever possible]], and she often serves as a communicator and a peacemaker between {{Kaiju}} and humans, since her twin guardian fairies can translate Kaiju language into human speech.
