** The male villain can't handle a 15 year old girl and when a Huntress appears, turns over the fight to his pilot, a woman with superior fighting abilities to himself. A man is in charge of the combat academy and is probably very badass but it's mostly his side kick, a woman, who sees the action while he sits back playing the EccentricMentor. The story's two student teams are a team of four girls and a team of two girls, two boys. One boy is badass but lets his GenkiGirl take the lead and the other boy is PluckyComicRelief. He's hinted to be potentially powerful but for now keeps getting saved by the girls. So far, the number of actions girls are double the number of action boys.
** Later volumes start to [[DownplayedTrope downplay]] this trope. Newly introduced student teams tend to be more gender-balanced, and thus more action guys like Sun, Neptune, and Mercury show up, and even the PluckyComicRelief Jaune gets more competent over time. On the mentor side, Professor Oobleck initially seems to strictly be TheSmartGuy, but is actually ''very'' dangerous when the chips are down, and then there's [[CoolUncle Qrow]], who may be the most skilled huntsman around. And there's [[FrontlineGeneral General Ironwood]]. On the villainous side, the aforementioned male villain turns out to be far more dangerous in combat than he initially seemed, and is actually more than a match for the 15 year old. And then there's the deadly Adam and Tyrian. Overall, there are still more action girls than action guys, but not by too many.

* ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' qualifies; not only is its playable cast exclusively female (albeit with two male DLC characters planned), but even non-playable women have a tendency to be tough, and only women can become [[HumanoidAbomination the titular Skullgirl]].

* [[Franchise/TheDCU The DC Universe]] has a number of female-focussed alternate universes. Three of the most recent are Earth-11 of the main DC multiverse, which is basically "Earth-GenderFlip"; the ''Toys/AmeComiGirls'' universe, based on a statue line featuring DC female characters and Gender Flipped versions of male characters in an anime-influenced style; and the ''ComicBook/DCComicsBombshells'' universe, a WeirdHistoricalWar alternate version of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII featuring versions of various female DC heroes and villains, which was derived from a series of variant covers and statues reimagining them in a 1940s-pin-up art style.

* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' universe the [[ExtranormalInstitute three best schools]] in the Magical Dimension are all single sex: all female witch school Cloudtower, all female fairy school Alfea, and all male Redfountain for BadassNormals. While there are wizards, paladins, and other male magic users mentioned or featured in the show, they're far outnumbered by the female witches and fairies.
** Subverted with the main cast, since, as romantic counterparts, there is usually an equal or almost equal split of [[BadassNormal Specialists]] to [[MagicalGirlWarriors Winx girls]] to make up TheTeam.

* In ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'', every female character who can do magic are really powerful and can take on anything, though there are also plenty of males who are also strong and capable with and without magic, although that tends to vary on the plot.

* The ''Fanfic/SuperwomenOfEva'' series, which takes the female cast of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and gives them [[SuperFic superpowers]], allowing them to mould the destinies of themselves and the people they love by taking the fight to the Angels and the AncientConspiracy factions. Even the stories where there is only one super-heroine does a pretty good job giving the other girls [[TookALevelInBadass an additional level in Badassery]] and the ones where there is ''more'' than one usually have anybody that is not part of the aforementioned EldritchAbomination race or AncientConspiracy factions running for the hills.
