** Regarding the [[spoiler: Vinsmoke]] BigScrewedUpFamily, only three members have more or less working moral compasses and show genuine compassion towards other people: the mother, Sora, and the only daughter Reiju. [[spoiler: The third one? The third-born son, ''Sanji''.]]

* Mutsuta's wife in ''Film/{{Sanjuro}}'' is smarter than most of the men in the movie, save for Sanjuro and Mutsuta, and teaches Sanjuro a thing or two about violence. He tries to take her advice to heart.

Added DiffLines:

* Played with on ''Series/BrooklynNineNine''. Of the female characters, Det. Amy Santiago initially ''seems'' like one of the most mature characters in the cast, particularly compared to her partner / love interest Det. Jake Peralta, but when you look closer she's actually just as immature, competitive, socially awkward and childish as he is -- just from a different direction (whereas he's the class clown who never grew up, she acts like she's constantly striving to be high school valedictorian), thus leading her to get into just as much trouble. Det. Rosa Diaz also seems like she's got a good head on her shoulders, but this is contrasted with a ''very'' short temper and tendency towards violent solutions to problems, which also doesn't always help. And as for Gina Linetti, she's a raging {{Narcissist}} who barely cares about other people at all. The most sane, stable and common-sense character in the cast is arguably the male Sgt. Terry Jeffords.

* Played straight with Chilindrina in ''Series/ElChavoDelOcho'', she´s clearly more intelligent than the other two kids Chavo and Kiko, by far. Popis on the other hand is almost as dumb as them both, but Popis is a recurrent character. Also played straight in ''Series/ElChapulinColorado'', the woman in the episode (normally played by Florinda Meza) is always more intelligente than her husband (normally played by Carlos Villagrán) and Chapulín himself. Averted in ''Series/{{Chespirito}}'' with ''Los Caquitos'', Botija is by far much more intelligent and cultured than Chimoltrufia.

* In ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'', Cerys an Craite is the only female claimant to the throne of Skellige. If she becomes queen, she proves to be a very calm, level-headed and diplomatic ruler, and under her rule, Skellige's economy thrives but it also leads to a decline in their [[HornyVikings raiding warrior culture]]. By contrast, her brother, Hjalmar is HotBlooded and not too bright, so he neglects the day-to-day running of Skellige if he becomes king, but the Skelligans don't really mind because he's also a {{Badass}} warrior king who's favoured by the gods and constantly leading them to bigger and more badass battles with [[TheEmpire Nilfgaard]], filling their longships with more and more plunder each time, i.e, he's the perfect king for Skellige - in some possible endings, Hjalmar manages to unite the clans and actually succeeds in kicking their black-plated arses back down south. Could count as SubvertedTrope.

Added DiffLines:

* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' with Bob and Linda. Both of them get carried away from time to time, but the frequency and degree differs. Bob plays the StraightMan more often than not, but when it's his turn to be irrational, he does it big. In contrast, Linda's flights of fancy are more frequent, but they tend to be pretty benign more often than not. Fortunately, when push comes to shove, they've got each other's backs.

* Muriel in ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' plays with this trope. While she's definitely much wiser than her {{Jerkass}} husband Eustace, giving how Eustace often [[TooDumbToLive ends up on the receiving end of great danger due to his stupidity and stubbornness]], Muriel's intelligence often varies depending on the plot. Some episodes, she is very aware of the danger she and the other two main characters come across. Others, she usually [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter trusts some of the villains despite how ominous they appear]].

A form of DoubleStandard, in that it holds women to an impossible ideal and depicts men as naturally inferior. Compare FemalesAreMoreInnocent, MotherNatureFatherScience and MarsAndVenusGenderContrast. Often combined with UglyGuyHotWife and with HenpeckedHusband where the husband is then portrayed as deserving the henpecking. Possibly overlaps with GuysSmashGirlsShoot. More than often enacted through a RightWayWrongWayPair. Contrast HystericalWoman, ClingyJealousGirl, PsychoExGirlfriend, WomanScorned and MyBelovedSmother. {{Opposite Trope|s}} to MenAreBetterThanWomen.
