* Early on in ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'', Issei is stressing out the night before a [[ItMakesSenseInContext very important dodgeball game]] and decides to calm his nerves by... embroidering headbands for his team. The girls on the team are shocked that Issei, a very stereotypical teenage male horndog goofball, does enough of such a feminine skill to be so good at it. It's an early hint that there's a lot more to Issei than his behavior and narration let on.

** A young woman named Arachne claimed she was better at weaving than the goddess Athena, who is so pissed off (since yanno, {{Pride}} is one of the worse sins a human could ever commit) that she comes round to challenge Arachne to a contest or "weave-off". When Arachne loses she's so upset she kills herself, so Athena turns her into a spider. In other versions Athena was still upset but wanted to give Arachne a last chance before she damned herself and did so under the disguise of an old woman, but Arachne was so arrogant that she blew Athena's warnings off and ''then'' came the challenge with the same disastrous results.

* Averted in ''Anime/KillLaKill'' where all of the the sewing club members (who make the shows super powered school uniforms) seem to be male and both of the Kamui were created by men, [[spoiler: the same man in fact.]]
** That said Nui is probably the most feminine character in the series and she's the tailor for the BigBad so it's not just men.
