* ''Film/TheHungerGames'', despite (or perhaps [[AmazonChaser because of]]) it being a particularly girl-powered film with a very feminist slant, gets quite a lot of this. Part of it has to do with the action and [[DeadlyGame the premise]] and the deep political and social commentary, but the pre-Games scenes also heavily feature Creator/JenniferLawrence looking 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]]. Did we mention how hot JenniferLawrence is?

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''. Much like the above example, this show garnered a decent male fanbase without resorting to {{Fanservice}}. Many can speculate as to why, but it's probably no small part due to it being one of the few shows with G-rated ass-whooping on Cartoon Network at the time.

* 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/SelenaGomez of ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'', Music/DemiLovato of ''Series/SonnyWithAChance'', Creator/BridgitMendler of ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'', Music/MileyCyrus of ''Series/HannahMontana'', Creator/HilaryDuff of ''Series/LizzieMcGuire'', 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 (Through ''Series/TheMickeyMouseClub'') - as demonstrated and proved by Annette Funicello.)

* While the YaoiFangirl is a common stereotype of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fandom, there ''are'' male fans who are attracted to either the history, characterizations or the female Nations. Somehow ironic considering it was originally [[{{Seinen}} intended for adult men]].

* ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' is also one, similar to the aforementioned Sailor Moon, has a large male fanbase in Japan, it has plenty of kickass {{action girl}}s and fight scenes, what sets it apart is its sheer amounts of [[GoodOldFisticuff in-your-face fist fights]] and NoHoldsBarredBeatDown, for a ''shoujo'' anime. It helps that it was produced by Toei, the same company behind ''Franchise/SuperSentai'', ''Franchise/KamenRider'' and the above mentioned ''Sailor Moon''.

* The producers of ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' tried to invoke this around the fifth season and so made sure the actresses' clothing was as sexy as possible. They also created plenty of episode plots where the sisters would be transformed into various magical creatures that required a different skimpy outfit. Creator/AlyssaMilano got the worst of it; a common joke was that her belly button deserved its own billing in the opening credits. (In fairness, a series with Shannen Doherty, Creator/RoseMcGowan, Creator/HollyMarieCombs, and Alyssa Milano was always going to have this.) Season 8 adds the beautiful Kayley Cuoco to the line-up as well.

Added DiffLines:

* Like how its [[VideoGame/TheIdolmaster sister series]] can attract [[EstrogenBrigade the other way around]], ''VideoGame/TheIdolmasterSideM'' has quite the Brigade of its own. The great music, interactions, and wide range of character types have drawn in male players from previous installments, and for [[LGBTFanbase those of a different persuasion]], it helps that there's a sizeable amount of eye candy in the cast.
* ''VideoGame/ToukenRanbu'', due to its heavy action focus and JidaiGeki setting. It even proved popular enough to have a couple manga published in Shonen magazines and a completely [[Anime/KatsugekiToukenRanbu action-packed adaptation]] made for the male audience to get into as well.
