A form of DoubleStandard in that it holds women to an impossible ideal and treats 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. More than often enacted through a RightWayWrongWayPair. Contrast HystericalWoman, ClingyJealousGirl, PsychoExGirlfriend, WomanScorned and MyBelovedSmother. {{Opposite Trope|s}} to MenAreBetterThanWomen.

** In "The Hand of Fear", Eldrad's female incarnation is manipulative, communicative and able to be reasoned with, despite her murderous impulses. The Doctor even seems quite fond of her, which Sarah jokes about. Upon [[TheNthDoctor regenerating]] into a male body, Eldrad turns into an idiotic, yowling, uncreative maniac with embarrassingly predictable emotions who is eventually defeated by tripping him up.

* In many {{Role Playing Game}}s, like the early ''{{Ultima}}'' games, if given the choice of gender for the player characters, odds are men will have increased Stregnth stats, while women will have increased Magic stats. That is, if there's a difference at all.
* Creator/BioWare uses this a few times. When a moral dilemma arises and the PlayerCharacter needs to side with one of two arguing {{NPC}}s for precious KarmaMeter points, as a rule the woman will be the one in the right. Examples include Kono Nolan and Sami from ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', and Ethan Jeong and Juliana Baynham in ''VideoGame/MassEffect1''
** Inverted in the very same game. When you return to the Citadel you get an encounter where a woman and a man are arguing and she is taking a wild fear based position and he is taking the more conservative playing the odds solution.
** This trope can be averted with a Renegade Female Shepard.
** While we only ever see "Eve"/[[spoiler: Urdnot Bakara]], it appears that Krogan women are this in comparison to their men. It's mentioned that the Krogan women got so sick of the men's BloodKnight tendencies continuing to destroy Tuchanka, they decided to split off and form their own separate, female-only clans.
** This is averted many times in ''KnightsOftheOldRepublic''. For example in ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic II'', you have a choice between siding with the corrupt Czerka corporation, whose spokesperson is a woman, or siding with the well-intended Ithorians, whose spokesperson is a man. (Well, not a man, because he's an alien. But a male.)

* {{Utawarerumono}}: Sopok's character practically revolves around spouting this, even when the girls are being complete idiots.

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', Gali is typically portrayed as more level-headed, wise and sensible than most of the male members of her team, often serving as the voice of reason. Although, [[GeniusBruiser Onua]] sometimes gives her a run for her money, possibly because his [[DishingOutDirt powers]] [[PersonalityPowers make him literally]] CloserToEarth. Nokama filled in pretty much the same role in her team, which is understandable, given her original occupation as a teacher. Later on this trope got deliberately avoided, at times inverted, with the exception of one occasion: characters belonging to the element of Psionics were stated to have been created as female because the first member of their race was an overly brash male who caused great trouble -- although the questionable sensibilities of this origin story were [[LampshadeHanging mocked by the other characters]].

* Played straight in ''Disney/Tarzan'', with Kala being the nice gorilla who adopts Tarzan and Kerchak refusing to be his father, believing that he can only bring harm to gorillas, even as a baby.
