** In a Nac Mac Feegle clan, it's the Kelda's job, as the only female, to do the thinking for the entire tribe, since male Feegles aren't that good at it.

** In a Nac Mac Feegle clan, it's the Kelda's job, as the only female, to do the thinking for the entire tribe, since male Feegles aren't that good at it.[[note]]''An'' implication being that in each clan, each gender gets a certain amount of intelligence and "smarts" that gets divvied up: since there's usually only one (or two, counting a daughter) women, the womenfolk keep it all, but since there are hundreds of son's and brothers to share their intelligence....[[/note]]

* Generally averted on Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses. WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick doesn't rage like WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic but they're both [[ComedicSociopathy crazy]] and her comedy is much blacker than his. MarzGurl loved abusing her authority in WebVideo/{{Kickassia}} as much as [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] did and nearly every person on the site enjoys beating the shit out of their colleagues.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Dan Weiss describes the Tyrells as: "...basically a secret matriarchy [...] where the men tend to be handsome dopes and the women are really the brains behind the operation."

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 overlaps with SageLoveInterst. 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.

** Bart and Lisa Simpson do this too, albeit to a much lesser extent than their parents -- Lisa is certainly much more intelligent than Bart, but Bart is the more socially adept of the two, and isn't nearly as dumb as his father. The trope gets taken to its logical extreme in the episode "Lisa The Simpson," where Lisa discovers that the Simpson males are genetically determined to lose their intelligence as they age, eventually becoming idiotic man-children with menial jobs. Of course, this doesn't affect the female Simpsons, who are ''all'' incredibly smart and successful.

The trope gets taken to its logical extreme in the episode "Lisa The Simpson," where Lisa discovers that even though all Simpsons ''start out'' intelligent, only the Simpson males are genetically determined men have a genetic condition that causes them to gradually lose their intelligence as they age, eventually becoming ending up as bumbling, idiotic man-children with working menial jobs. Of course, this doesn't affect jobs, while the female Simpsons, who women keep their intelligence into adulthood and thus are ''all'' incredibly smart and all very successful.

* Downplayed in ''VideoGame/EpicBattleFantasy''. All three members of the party are shown to be flawed and not at all heroic, but while [[TheHeart Natalie]] has the most noble intentions and keeps the other two in line, [[IdiotHero Matt]] is just in it to expand his collection of cool swords and [[ColdSniper Lance]] tends to let his perverted tendencies get the better of him. Played much straighter in the fourth game with [[ForestRanger Anna]], who reassembles the team and is the only one of the four to have genuinely selfless motivations.

** 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.
