* ''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.

* ''Anime/TenchiMuyoWarOnGeminar'' has a literal and justified case in Geminar: the power to use the planet's HumongousMecha is hereditary and apparently recessive (i.e. usually both parents must possess it for their children to inherit it), but there's only one male with the power for every ten females, [[GenderRarityValue making the men a rare commodity seldom allowed to risk their lives on the battlefield]]. [[WatsonianVersusDoylist Or at least, that's the Watsonian explanation; the Doylist explanation would be that]] it's a series starring a male relative of HaremGenre TropeCodifier {{Tenchi|Muyo}} who just happens to have the power.
