That's short for "The one guy associated with [[AmazonBrigade a team otherwise consisting entirely of females]]." No need to get rabid jealous, though, guys -- this isn't the HaremGenre. At the most, The One Guy will be in a committed relationship with '''one''' of the members -- or [[DungeonmastersGirlfriend he wants to be]]. His membership can range from loose ally to close friend to part of the actual fighting team. Either that, or just some guy who [[NonActionGuy rarely ever actually does anything]] other than serve as a little [[MrFanservice guy candy]]. He will usually be involved in plots that require guys, as well as be a non-threatening and harmless crush object for the assorted cast as needed. Could become TheFace of the group, should the rest of them [[{{NoSocialSkills}} lack social skills.]] See ChromosomeCasting when there's zero members of the opposite sex present in the work. This is also DistaffCounterpart to TheSmurfettePrinciple, although that female may be the main character and still qualify for the trope. Contrast GenderEqualEnsemble, where the cast has evenly split the gender ratio. No relation to ThatOneGuy (who is an experienced player, not necessarily a male) or ThoseTwoGuys (who also don't have to be male; just a pair of recurring extras).

From the trope description: "Remember, not all characters who serve as the only male in the group automatically count for this trope. If he is the main protagonist, he does not count as this trope."
* ''WebComic/{{Amazoness}}!'' is set in the mythical Amazon city of Themiskyra, where men are not allowed to step foot. The only men who have shown up so far are nameless mooks who exist only to be killed by the Amazons in battle. Then there is the matter of [[spoiler:Eutropia who is biologically male but psychologically female, the only "male" in the group.]]

* ''VideoGame/MegadimensionNeptuniaVictoryII'' has finally the first playable male character for the ''VideGame/Neptunia'' franchise, though as a DLC character only. This character is Umio. The twist? He is a fish who swims through air and attacks like a ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''

** Supreme King Claus G.S. Ingvalt from ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'' is the only named male ruler from the Ancient Belkan history, and basically the only named male character from that era, excluding Zafira. However, the gender of the Thunder Emperor Grünwald, who has to appear yet, is unknown. ** Kurt Grendel from ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaForce'' is the only male member of the Grendel Family. However, he is also the leader of the family.

* Most nominally all female wrestling promotions have had at least one guy compete in their rings, such as Mr. Buddhaman in Wrestling/AllJapanWomensProWrestling, Whipme Spearz in the PGWA and GLORY, Masa Takanashi in Ice Ribbon, Wrestling/TAKAMichinoku in REINA, Rick Cataldo in Wrestling/{{WSU}} and El Demasiado in LIF. Bad Boys Of Wrestling, [[CaptainObvious despite not being an all women's organization]], ran an angle about this phenomenon, where two guys came into BBOW to attack the women's {{tag team}} champions Candie and [[Wrestling/MickieJames Alexis Laree]] after running out of women's promotions to invade.

* The WWWA began as an all women's promotion but when it introduced midget divisions, most of those who competed in them ended up being men, resulting in an odd guy sometimes being on a card to represent it even when no midget championship matches actually took place. This carried over to Wrestling/AllJapanWomensProWrestling when it took the WWWA titles, with Mr. Buddhaman ending up as the one guy in a few different Joshi feds * Most nominally all female wrestling promotions have had at least one guy compete in their rings, such as Mr. Buddhaman in Wrestling/AllJapanWomensProWrestling, as, Whipme Spearz in the PGWA and GLORY, Masa Takanashi in Ice Ribbon, Wrestling/TAKAMichinoku in REINA, Rick Cataldo in Wrestling/{{WSU}} and El Demasiado in LIF.

* Takara in ''Manga/RisingXRydeen'' is the only boy and leader of his superpowered team. This is because the higher-ups for the organization he works for are a bunch of [[DirtyOldMan dirty old men]]. They wanted an all female team, but, for reason's unexplained, Takara is part of their grand plan so they reluctantly added him.

* Zaebos from ''Webcomic/{{Earthsong}}''. * Nenshe from ''Webcomic/RumorsOfWar'' qualifies in the absence of Obadai, as [[GenreSavvy the latter has yet]] [[MentorOccupationalHazard to actively participate]] in the story. * When ''Webcomic/ElectricWonderland'' began, the roster of main characters consisted of three women and one male: NJ. Two more males, Torro and Parker, joined in the second comic, but Parker got swiftly PutOnABus. Also, Torro rarely contributes anything worthwhile to the characters' adventures, for being TooDumbToLive. This results in NJ still holding this title most of the time.
