* ''Anime/CodeGeass'', surprisingly enough. While there are about as many powerful men and women, the men are more often SquishyWizard {{Chessmaster}} types, while the women - Cornelia, Marianne, Kallen, etc. - do more of the fighting.

* In ''Anime/KillLaKill'', you've got the female protagonist, her female rival, her female best friend, the female member of the Elite 4, and the female BigBad. The former two and the latter are the most powerful characters in the series, and the others are just as strong as their male counterparts. The only notable male fighters are the two members of Nudist Beach and two of the Elite 4.
