Anime and Manga
- ARIA, where only beautiful young girls appear to be allowed to steer sight-seeing gondolas.
- Pretty much every girl in Elfen Lied, Diclonius and human alike, is very beautiful. Because of this, the opening scene is particularly memorable, what with Lucy going on a killing spree while wearing nothing but a mask.
- Naturally sent up in Excel Saga, which featured a bishoujo episode in which the art became noticeably more shiny and all of the male regulars except Pedro were deliberately excluded. Pedro's Big "NO!" comes when the male cast finally comes to exact punishment for his appearance — and we still don't get a good look at any of them.
- Galaxy Angel is a bishoujo series; the Galaxy Angel gameverse has the same characters as a Harem Genre, but the anime removes the central male.
- Gunslinger Girl has an especially jarring dichotomy between the age of the girls in question and their occupation.
- I'm Gonna Be an Angel!.
- Koihime†Musou is notable for its sheer volume of bishoujo. There are literally dozens of all shapes and sizes.
- Str.A.In.: Strategic Armored Infantry.
- Strawberry Panic! is a Yuri Genre example.
- Strike Witches.
- To Love-Ru.
- Parodied in Anime-Gataris, where the entire anime club (including Neko-sensei) inexplicably becomes full of cute girls thanks to the Reality Bleed of 2D tropes into real life.
- Arcana Heart
- Rumble Roses
- Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball, complete with revolutionary Jiggle Physics.
- Final Fantasy X-2.
- Vanguard Princess
- Tokidensho Angel Eyes
- Neptunia is nothing but this.
- Getter Love!!
- Touhou. An astounding grand total of two males appear in the official works, and one of them is a magical cloud. The females? About 80+ of them, not counting pre-Windows versions.
- Kantai Collection was intentionally designed like this, but then it suddenly got popular, getting the non-otakus and many female players mixed in as well. At its heart, however, it is still a bishoujo series franchise.
- Katawa Shoujo. A Visual Novel made by an international team in the style of a Japanese Dating Sim. This fact gets lampshaded in-game too.
