* One of the longest running shows in Takarazuka Revue (and probably the most popular) is the stage adaptation of ''The RoseOfVersailles''. Oscar Francois de Jarjayes is generally held as the highest role an actress in the Revue can achieve because it is simultaneously an ''otokoyaku'' and ''musumeyaku'', a fine line that only the most talented and versatile actresses can expertly walk.
* Osamu Tezuka's ''Manga/BlackJack''

* ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub's'' rivals are the Zuka Club from Lobelia School. Tamaki's spiritual counterpart, the hilariously overdramatic {{Bifauxnen}} president Benibara is naturally GenreSavvy enough to immediately notice Haruhi is actually a girl and suggests she join their school instead. Naturally, Tamaki [[HypocriticalHumor does not enjoy Benny's interest in Haruhi.]]
** Benibara's own name is also a pun on the nickname of the most popular Takarazuka show, [[RoseOfVersailles BeruBara]].

* ''{{Franchise/Anpanman}}'' has Shiratama-san. Despite being human-looking, she's actually a shiratama, a kind of rice cake used in fruit salad, which she has a tendency to give to new people. She's very dramatic, seeing the world as a stage. She always has a new idea for a show with her as the dashing lead, and has a tendency to try and rope other characters into performing with her. She's also one of the few people that doesn't see Baikinman as a villain. Instead, she thinks of him as a fellow actor, playing the villain role. She naturally wants him to be the villain in any of her new plays, but he wants nothing to do with her.

[[caption-width-right:330:PeacockGirl, check. [[PimpedOutDress Loads of trimmings]], check. Bouquet on a ribbon, check.]]

A unique form of Japanese theater over 95 years old; the original gimmick was to break the standard actor rules and have unmarried women perform all the roles. Yes, [[CrossCastRole all the roles]]. The troupe is popular with female audiences, as the performances are usually very {{melodrama}}tic and elaborately designed, with loads of gorgeous costumes. After the first year of being taught, actresses get placed into classes for their roles more or less exclusively: ''musumeyaku'' (woman's role) and ''otokoyaku'' (man's role). The latter are exclusively breeches roles, where actresses start to cut their hair short, wear pants rather than skirts, and [[JapanesePronouns speak with masculine pronouns]], though some very versatile ''otokoyaku'' also play female roles.

Also of note: Anime pioneer OsamuTezuka's hometown is also the base of the Takarazuka theater troupe; Tezuka was a fan all his life, and wrote a clause into his will that left a small portion of his fortune to the company to help finance future productions. In turn, Takarazuka produced a musical based on his ''Manga/BlackJack'' in 1994.
