* In the anime ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'', the plot takes place in a world inhabited by man-eating demons called youma. An organization creates [[HalfHumanHybrid hybrids from humans and youma]], because only they are strong enough to fight against the youma. But the hybrids are exclusively women. And each of the warriornesses runs the risk of losing control of their powers one day, and turning into a monstrous youma, an Awakened Being. The organization claims that they can not make male warriors.
** However, very long ago, in the first generation of the organization, most warriors were men. But almost all of the male warriors were quickly awakened, so the organization only made female warriors. And the time of the male warriors has so long since passed, that many warriornesses are surprised and confused when they have to fight against a [[LivingRelic male Awakened Being]].
