* ''Anime/SailorMoon''. While it is primarily a shoujo anime, it has quite a bit of a male following as well, with all the Sailor Senshi being really hot, kickass {{action girl}}s. (A story about a young {{Moviebob}}, while working as a video store clerk, explaining this to a customer is recounted [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/columns/moviebob/9931-Moviebobs-Re-Tales.2 here]].) There are Testosterone Brigades for approximately all ten of the female leads.

** Also invoked in an episode of ''TheBigBangTheory'' when the girls get a Disney Princess makeover at Disneyland. When Penny walks into Leonard's apartment he immediately drops his pants after seeing her dressed as Aurora. Howard does pretty much the same thing. Poor Amy fails to get Sheldon's attention.

** Disney XD shows, while actually targeted towards boys, also apply, such as Caitlyn Taylor Love from ''Series/ImInTheBand'' (which carried over to another Disney XD show, ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderman'', where she portrays Ava Ayala/White Tiger), Creator/OliviaHolt on ''Series/KickinIt'' (which carried over to Disney Channel's ''Series/IDidntDoIt'' while adding Creator/PiperCurda to the mix), Kelli Berglund from ''Series/LabRats'', Oana Gregory from ''Series/CrashAndBernstein'' (Landry Bender never really got hers until ''Best Friends Whenever''), and Paris Berelc and, even though she's not part of the main cast, Cozi Zuehlsdorff from ''Series/MightyMed''. Expect Kelli and Paris to carry theirs over to ''Series/LabRatsEliteForce'' (''Lab Rats Vs. Mighty Med'' already provided a sneak preview).

* ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'', being aimed at girls, has an amazingly high amount of good-looking guys in the cast. It also has an amazingly high amount of good-looking ''girls'' in the cast (Creator/TroianBellisario, Creator/AshleyBenson, Creator/LucyHale, Shay Mitchell, Janel Parrish, Sasha Pieterse, Tammin Sursok...), a trait shared with most of its fellow Warner/Alloy series like ''Literature/GossipGirl'' (which featured Creator/BlakeLively, Leighton Meester, and a young Creator/TaylorMomsen) and ''Series/TheLyingGame''.

* The film ''Film/MorningGlory'' has a large male following, even though it's a RomanticComedy about a woman (played by Creator/RachelMcAdams of ''Film/MeanGirls'' fame) who tries to find success in New York as a morning talk show producer.



* ''Film/TheHungerGames'', despite (or perhaps [[AmazonChaser because of]]) it being a particularly girl-powered film with a very female slant, gets quite a lot of this. Part of it has to do with the action and [[DeadlyGame the premise]], but the pre-Games scenes heavily feature Creator/JenniferLawrence glammed up and made to look drop-dead gorgeous, while ''Catching Fire'' has her in a form-fitting wetsuit for the Games as well. ''Catching Fire'' also adds Creator/JenaMalone, most notably her [[EstablishingCharacterMoment elevator scene]].
* The film version of ''Film/ThePrincessDiaries'' astonishingly enough. The main appeal is Anne Hathaway in her first role - and she gets a makeover very early on, resulting in a FanServicePack. Mandy Moore also gets plenty of scenes in a flattering cheerleader outfit. The movie is a GuiltyPleasure for a lot of dudes, who enjoy the comedy and find the story cute - with the above mentioned reasons justifying their enjoyment of it.

* The Creator/DisneyChannel, being a veritable TeenIdol machine that employs a lot of attractive young people (see the point above about teen shows), often winds up with this no matter how [[TastesLikeDiabetes sickeningly sweet]] and kid-friendly they make their shows. Some (of-age) Disney stars, past and present, that attract this include Music/MileyCyrus of ''Series/HannahMontana'', Music/SelenaGomez of ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'', Creator/BridgitMendler of ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'', Creator/DebbyRyan and Creator/PeytonRList of ''Series/{{Jessie}}'', Creator/LauraMarano of ''Series/AustinAndAlly'', Dove Cameron of ''Series/LivAndMaddie'', Creator/BellaThorne and Creator/ZendayaColeman in ''Series/ShakeItUp'', Zendaya again (plus Veronica Dunne) in ''Series/KCUndercover'', and Lauren Taylor of ''Series/BestFriendsWhenever''. (Proving how old this trope is, it goes right back to when Disney ''began'' in TV - as demonstrated by Annette Funicello.)

* While now it's reached DeaderThanDisco status, back in TheNineties ''Series/AllyMcBeal'' was also popular among men, due to the attractive female lead actresses (which had Creator/LucyLiu among them). This is even Lampshaded by the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "When Aliens Attack," where all Omicronians (especially Lrrr, the Emperor of Omicron Persei 8) love ''Single Female Lawyer'' which is a direct parody of the series.



* ''Series/FakingIt'', much like ''The L Word'' above, drew a small brigade due to the promise of lesbians, though it does a lot less pandering to them than that show did...and most of that is through Liam, who the main fandom ''hates''.

* Wrestling/MickieJames got over big time with men due to her [[PsychoLesbian lesbian stalker gimmick]] in which she would [[GirlOnGirlIsHot kiss women]] and in one instance [[CanonDiscontinuity grabbed Trish's privates and seductively licked her fingers afterwards]] getting an earth-shattering pop for it. Even after abandoning those characteristics, she still remains popular due to her sex appeal, GirlNextDoor nature and the fact that she, like Trish, can actually wrestle.
