* All the evil races is ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'' seem to be like that; Carpies, Trolls and Ogres. If there are female Ogres, for example, are never on screen. Troggles (Lady Bane's dog-like minions) were apparently male, yet during the Wedding Episode in which she and Igthorn were going to marry, Troggles are shown in striper outfit dancing for the Ogres, so… they probably are all female.

* Nearly every mammal species on Earth becomes a OneGenderRace in ''ComicBook/YTheLastMan'', after a strange event somehow [[{{Gendercide}} kills off every male mammal on Earth]] except two, a human and a monkey. (The "on Earth" part becomes important later, as [[spoiler: the International Space Station wasn't affected]])

* The Taresians of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' are a OneGenderRace of females that mate with males of other humanoid species to perpetuate themselves by implanting viruses in them that slowly turn them into male Taresians. As it turns out, the mating process (one male is given up to three females as his wives) is deadly toward males as [[DeathBySex they die after mating with their wives]]. Harry Kim was implanted with a virus that made him believe that he was secretly a Taresian, but eventually he and the Voyager crew find out the truth about the Taresians and rescue Kim before he became their next victim.

** D&D medusas (based on gorgons) ''aren't'' a OneGenderRace; male medusas are called maedars, and are bald humanoids with an affinity for snakes and an intristic ''stone to flesh'' ability. They're also extremely rare. In 4th edition, male medusa are just called that, look just like masculine counterparts to the medusa (still bald, though) and have traded the stone-to-flesh-by-touch power for a gaze attack lifted straight from the mythological basilisk. That is, if they look at you, their gaze is so venomous you die of poisoning if you meet their eye. This is the same edition that states there are male harpies, whereas the previous editions meandered between implying that harpies kidnapped human men to breed with and that they laid eggs parthenogenically.

* ''TranshumanSpace'' features a few StrawFeminist geneticists trying to engineer an [[OneGenderRace all-female human subrace]].

** Later, an all-female [[AlwaysChaoticEvil enemy race]] called the [[SnakePeople Lamia]] was added to the game, though their status as a OneGenderRace may be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by the insinuation that they're actually an artificial race used as biological weapons...and because the [[OurMonstersAreDifferent mythical creatures]] they're based on are always depicted as female.

* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'': Carbo-silicate amorphs are, for all intents and purposes, a OneGenderRace, and their reproduction process is explained in some detail in the comic, but is basically an interesting example of how parthenogenesis could produce offspring which differ from the parent. Technically they don't have a gender at all; Sergeant Schlock is referred to as "he", but Schlock is kind of an odd duck, in that he is A) actually kind of violent, and B) not the result of normal amorph reproduction, but the result of a critical failure in the process of amorph-to-amorph combat.

** Some Pokémon have different evolutionary forms for each gender, so the children can be of either gender, but the parents are each {{One Gender Race}}s. Burmy will evolve into Wormadam (female) or Mothim (male), and Snorunt will evolve into Froslass (female) or Glalie (male).

* The Draconians from the ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'' novels are all male in the earlier works. This is explained and expanded on in a later book, ''TheDoomBrigade''. Very short version, Draconians were a created race, and the creators decided at the last minute not to allow the draconians to breed, and put the eggs containing the female draconians into magical stasis. They were eventually freed.

* The humans in the ''{{Celaeno}}'' series by Jane Fletcher are all female, as are (presumably) the domesticated animals. Only the animals indigenous to the planet reproduce naturally, the domesticated animals are cloned, while the humans have their genetic information [[HomosexualReproduction imprinted from the gene-mother to the birth-mother]].
* In Fletcher's other series, ''LyremouthChronicles'', she solves the issue of dwarf women by making the dwarves hermaphrodites.

** Not surprisingly, when LaurenFaust (who watched the older cartoons growing up) came on board for ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', she promptly made sure to avert this trope - Equestrian ponies come in both genders and reproduce the way Earth horses do, no ifs, ands, or magic mirrors.

Tends to be on the HighFantasy of fantastical scale for reasons obvious to anyone with any concept of biology. Assuming sex is genetically determined in the usual way, sex ratios in animals tend to even out over time, even though sexual selection would suggest only a handful of males (traditionally the "unlimited", low-investment sex, at least among mammals -- birds, for example, are often a totally different story) are actually needed or preferred for a population. Within a ''population'' or an explicitly social group, however, sex may or may not play much of a role. For example, the concept of mammals (such as lions and certain species of seal) who have "harems" has been commonly reinterpreted as females tolerating a single male simply due to access to resources his leadership provides, while having more than one is simply bothersome to the group after a certain age. However, this doesn't mean fewer males contribute to the species; many are simply forced to become loners, join bachelor groups, or simply take what they can get. Think ''Disney/TheLionKing'': Mufasa led the pride, while his brother Scar lived as an outcast.
