->''"You know, I've been stuck in these cages watching the mogu a lot, but I'm pretty sure I've never seen a girl mogu. What's with that?''"
-->-- '''Lao Softfoot''', ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft: Mists of Pandaria'', hanging a lampshade on monster race design.[[note]]The only two female mogu in existence wind up becoming bosses later [[/note]]

Not a tribe, but an entire race or group of humanoids inexplicably made up of one sex. Male is usually the default, but females under the CuteMonsterGirl rules are becoming more common and more obvious. The lack of the other sex is {{Hand Wave}}d briefly; Disaster wiping out the other half, or voluntary separation are two common reasons, although sometimes it seems they just don't appear.

If the genetic stock is replenished by mingling with other 'races', you often get the strange explanation that GenderEqualsBreed, rather than the offspring being actual hybrids; alternately you can get BizarreSexualDimorphism where two One Gender Races are revealed to be the male and female versions of the same species.

This is really more about creating a unique culture without having to create an enormous amount of back story. For obvious reasons this used to be an [[PlanetOfHats easy device]] to [[AuthorFilibuster soapbox gender issues]], with all the associated political and social biases in place. Sufficiently old mythological legends may be grandfathered in even in a series avoiding One Gender Races, because the alternative gender is rarely depicted or has no instantly recognizable version.

Tends to be on the HighFantasy of fantastical scale for reasons obvious to anyone with any concept of biology. Assuming sex is genetically determined in the usual way, sex ratios in animals tend to even out over time, even though sexual selection would suggest only a handful of males (traditionally the "unlimited", low-investment sex, at least among mammals -- birds, for example, are often a totally different story) are actually needed or preferred for a population. Within a ''population'' or an explicitly social group, however, sex may or may not play much of a role. For example, the concept of mammals (such as lions and certain species of seal) who have "harems" has been commonly reinterpreted as females tolerating a single male simply due to access to resources his leadership provides, while having more than one is simply bothersome to the group after a certain age. However, this doesn't mean fewer males contribute to the species; many live on their own or in bachelor groups, taking what they can get. Think ''Disney/TheLionKing'': Mufasa led the pride, while his brother Scar lived as an outcast.

In the right ([[Main/RuleThirtyFour or wrong]]) subculture, expect {{Fanon}} concerning hermaphroditism and various methods of HomosexualReproduction, especially if the race is all-female.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* The Namekians of ''Franchise/DragonBall''. [[WordofGod As described by]] [[Creator/AkiraToriyama Akira Toriyama]], Namekians are designed after slugs, and in-show they reproduce asexually (by laying eggs with their mouth). That said, their secondary sexual characteristics are distinctly male (see the fellow in the moustache in the picture above).
** In ''Videogame/DragonballXenoverse'', Frieza's race is also treated as this, though unlike Namekians, there's no explanation for how they reproduce. Perhaps they don't send their women to fight?
* Angels[[spoiler:, Seeds of Life (Adam/Lilith), and probably the Evas themselves by extension]] in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' are strongly implied to be hermaphrodites: the genome analyses shows that they have 24 chromosome pairs, which includes both Y and X sex chromosomes (meaning they have the karyotype XXYY).[[note]]Probably counts as ArtMajorBiology, considering the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XXYY known biological consequences of doubling up on sex chromosomes]] [[/note]] The very existence of paired Y chromosomes generates a bit of FridgeLogic.
* Fairies in ''Anime/MazeMegaburstSpace'' are all female, and reproduce with human men on the one day when they're human-sized.
* The Solnoids from ''Anime/GallForce'' were all female, and reproduced by cloning. Their enemies, the Palenoids / [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Paranoids]], were androgynous but ostensibly male (as far as the viewer can tell; they look more like living suits of armor, but all the voices are male). [[spoiler:The [[HalfHumanHybrid Half-Human Hybrid]] created from combining Solnoid and Paranoid DNA was a human boy, who was used to set up the [[AdamAndEvePlot ending]] of the original OVA.]]
* In the ''[[Anime/SaberMarionetteJ Saber Marionette]]'' series, the human inhabitants of Terra II were all [[AWizardDidIt male, cloned descendants of the six male survivors]] of the colonization mission. The Marionettes were a 'race' of {{Robot Girl}}s that served as ReplacementGoldfish because they were not apparently able to create females [[YouFailBiologyForever (having]] [[CriticalResearchFailure X-chromosomes]] [[FridgeLogic apparently didn't help)]], though their owners tended to have an ironically non-sexual attitude towards them.
* The Taraks (males) and the Mejare (females) from ''Anime/{{Vandread}}''; both races (Humans that were deliberately separated by gender) reproduced by couples mixing DNA to create DesignerBabies.
* The Zentradi in ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' (and the first part of ''{{Anime/Robotech}}'') segregate themselves into single-sex units and reproduce by cloning, but are generally seen as one species. In TheMovie adaptation ''Anime/MacrossDoYouRememberLove'', however, the two sexes see each other as entirely separate races, as they have different names (Zentradi and Meltrandi) and are even at war with one another. Both forms of this gender segregation have faded away in later ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' series among Zentradi who have integrated into human society.
* All mermaids in ''Manga/MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'' are female. They can reproduce the normal way in their human forms with other races (although this is incredibly rare if not anathema, given their strained relations with anyone else; still, Hanon mentions that mermaid nations have a streamlined age of consent, and considering that some of them are straight and nobody sees anything wrong with that...
** The more usual way is by having their pearl placed in a giant magic shell when they die to create a successor. (Strangely enough, the only time we see this, it creates a ''six-year-old'', both mentally and physically. It is assumed that they stay that way for the next six years and then age normally.) While this results in no net increase of mermaids, it also ends up in a mermaid longer-lived than usual.
* The Arume in ''Manga/BlueDrop'' are all female, and reproduce through technical means. They can even impregnate human women, which they find highly attractive, and actively steal from earth men, ''whether the women like it or not''.
** Notably, they ''used'' to be a two-gender race, but their men went extinct, and reproduce using technology similar to cloning (they give the females some of the genes from males to make recombination easier- they're genetic hermaphrodites, albeit not physical ones). They could technically become a regular two-gender-race again if they would only mate with human males, but they like things just the way they are, thankyouverymuch. IE; guys weird them out.
** Certain parts of the manga actually do take a look at [[RealityEnsues the consequences of this setup]]: [[spoiler:The Arume initially invaded for the men, but got cold feet, and apparently do so multiple times. Unless they buckle down and broaden their horizons, they're heading for societal collapse, either due to unrest on the occupied earth, or due to eart women not doing anything for thier slowly degrading Y-chromosome supply (they'd find incorporating new ones icky)]].
* The Koorime, or ice maidens, from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho''. They usually give birth to an identical daughter every 100 years via parthenogenesis; however, [[spoiler:they can have sex with various male demons, and, in that case, a boy will be born who looks like his father. This boy is called a "forbidden child," and will get dropped off of the floating island where the Koorime live, in the hopes that the fall will kill them. Hiei is just such a child]].
* More in the Manga: ''Manga/PetShopOfHorrors'', [[spoiler:with the Count and family]]. Fandom makes it a business of figuring out how they truly do it...
* The Alpha Cygnans in ''Anime/ProjectAKo'' are all female.
* The titular Manga/{{Sekirei}} are overwhelmingly female (only 2 male ones have been seen so far, 3 if you count Homura).
* The Mazone in ''Anime/CaptainHarlock''.
* It's revealed late into ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' that the New Devils who inhabit Hell in the present day are all female.
* The Kuja in ''Manga/OnePiece'' may be this. It's not known for sure if they are merely a tribe on an isolated island, or if they are a race separate from regular humans. What makes them weird is that they do not have one-gendered reproduction, and they have to leave their island to get pregnant with a man. The child will then always turn out to be a girl. Furthermore, they seem to be better than other people to awaken and train their Haki, but appearance-wise they are similar to other human females.
* In the ''Manga/ElfenLied'' anime, all Diclonius shown are female. They reproduce by infecting humans with their virus, via their vectors, invisible arms they control with their mind. They age slower physically than humans too. The only exception is the main character, who can reproduce in the same way as a human and appears to have aged at a normal rate. [[spoiler:However, there is one male Diclonius in the manga.]]
* In ''{{Manga/Marginal}}'', humans on Earth become an all-male race after a biological disaster. There is only one individual capable of reproduction (like a queen bee) revered as "Mother". [[spoiler:However, it turns out to be part of an elaborate AncientConspiracy.]]
* In ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', the [[SnakePeople Lamia]] and [[HarpingOnAboutHarpies Harpies]] have no males. As such, they require human males to reproduce.
* ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic'' reveals about halfway through the story that some of the Djinns came from such races, including [[MsFanservice Paimon]] (member of a races of beautiful black-haired women, which also might explain her LipstickLesbian tendencies), [[WingedHumanoid Phenex]] (Garuda, a race composed of gigantic, angel-like women) and [[PlayingWithFire Amon]] (Hermits, a whole race of old codgers).
* In the anime continuity of ''Anime/UmaMusume'', horse girls have no male counterparts. The best descriptions their fathers have are "mysterious", and the method of being born a horse girl is mostly overlooked.

[[folder:Card Games]]
* In ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', angels are always female. (There are two exceptions: one from an AlternateUniverse, and another that [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness predates the style guide).]] Likewise, [[FemaleAngelMaleDemon demons are male]] when they have an identifiable sex. This is possible because they are not actually biological beings, they're [[MadeOfMagic manifestations of mana]] (white for angels and black for demons).
** The card art only shows females ([[MostWritersAreMale Most Artists Are Male]]). The art directors once required an artist to redraw a card after he turned in a painting of a male angel. According to the books and text materials, there are plenty of male angels (Serra, at least, made sure of it for her realm).
** In the plane of Amonkhet, conversely, all angels are male. Demons are more bestial there; the one named is clearly male, but there are also Ammits, which are based off a female entity in Myth/EgyptianMythology.

[[folder: Comic Books]]
* While this is not true in all ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' comics, some (especially those written by Simon Furman) display the Transformer race as free of gender, with the only "females" being failed alterations or side projects. While this makes sense as they are sexless robots, it's noteworthy that they all look and act "male". This is because the fandom is male-directed.
* The Amazons in ''ComicBook/WonderWoman'' avoided the question by making their race immortal.
** In the original versions, the Amazons were an all-female ''society'', but still human (they just don't age on Paradise Island). ComicBook/PostCrisis, this was changed to being a race created by the Greek goddesses out of clay (with the souls of murdered human women.)
*** As of the ComicBook/{{New 52}}, Amazons apparently are [[FemmeFatale Femmes Fatales]] who have sex with passing sailors and then murder them. Any male children born are traded as slaves to Hephaestus in exchange for weapons.
* The Guardians of the Universe in ''GreenLantern'' comics were all male, because the females of their race thought the whole "guardians of the universe" project was misguided, and took themselves off to found an all-female society somewhere else. (They were [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Sufficiently Advanced Aliens]], and practically immortal, so the continuation of their race was not a consideration.) When they died and were resurrected by Kyle Rayner, he intentionally made half of them female, to give them back that perspective (it didn't really work).
* The fairy-like Preservers in Wendy and Richard Pini's comic book series ''ComicBook/ElfQuest'' [[NoBiologicalSex are neither male nor female]]. Surprisingly, all the characters who encounter any given Preserver seem to know to automatically use the gender-neutral "it". The one known exception is from futuristic series ''The Rebels'' which has an apparently female elf-sized Preserver named Rosie, who has some percentage of human DNA because the Preserver DNA was not complete enough to clone a real Preserver.
* Nearly every mammal species on Earth becomes this in ''ComicBook/YTheLastMan'', after a strange event somehow [[{{Gendercide}} kills off every male mammal on Earth]] except two, a human and a monkey. (The "on Earth" part becomes important later, as [[spoiler:the International Space Station wasn't affected]])
* In a story written by Creator/AlanMoore, "Vega: A Man's World" (''ComicBook/OmegaMen'' #27), a female alien anthropologist discovers another alien race composed entirely of males, with a tribal culture. When she describes the fact that it's possible to procreate with a female like her, the young man who acts as her translator is eager to try it (and she's fairly receptive, too). Unfortunately, the way the beings of this species procreate is by [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic stabbing a giant snail-like creature in a special purple membrane]], which causes babies of the tribe's species to bud off the snail (and also increases the numbers of the snails). The young man then brags to one of his elders that he's finally become strong enough to perform the ritual, the proof being outside his hut: a spear covered in red gore, as opposed to the purplish ichor of the snails.
* Leprechauns in ''ComicBook/WormwoodGentlemanCorpse'' are all male. [[spoiler:Even the queen.]] We aren't given details on how they reproduce.
* In Alessandro Barbuci's ''ComicBook/SkyDoll'', the Aquarians are an all-female race that reproduce through a cloning process utilizing genetic material from an object known as the "Holy Fish." [[spoiler:While it is not explained further, it is implied that Gaia, the figurehead of the race, has had relations with Agape, and possibly Noa, as well.]]
* In ''ComicBook/PocketGod'', the pygmy tribe originally had only six males, much like the [[VideoGame/PocketGod video game]] it is based on. Subverted later on when a female pygmy is introduced and she reveals that she belongs to a tribe of six female pygmies. When the tribes meet, they decide to merge together to help each other out.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* Purposely subverted in ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'', as there are (and were) naturally-born female Smurfs, but the ones in Papa Smurf's generation have all died, and most of the Smurfs in Empath's generation are male (Sassette being the sole exception).
* Averted in Raven Child's ''Fanfic/TheSmurfetteVillage'' series, as it shows how both male and female Smurfs were created in the beginning and why they were separated into two single-gender villages.
* The Nendo-kata are an all female race first created for Frederick Dean Herriot’s Manga/UruseiYatsura fanfic series ''The Senior Year.'' They first appeared in ''Together the Outland,'' then afterward. They've also showed up in ''Urusei Yatsura - The Ishinomaki Years,'' his Ranma 1/2 stories ''Three Sisters'' and ''Like A Phoenix From The Ashes,'' plus his ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis'' series ''Illusions.''
* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'':
** Mothra and Gyaos are both all-female species who reproduce asexually. Mothra Lea is an anomaly as she was born from a union between her mother and Battra.
** Mermares are all female and reproduce by mating with other races. Daughters are Mermares with some of the father's traits. Sons are the father's species with some Mermare traits. The three Sirens are born from such a union, though their father species is at the moment unspecified.
* In ''Fanfic/WeresHarry'', veela are all female. Any female children born from veela/human unions will themselves be veela, while the male children will be ordinary (if handsome) humans.

* The Draks from the movie ''Film/EnemyMine'' are masculine ("I... am ''not''... ''a woman!''"), but reproduce asexually. The Barry B. Longyear books on which the movie was based stated that yes, Draks ''could'' have more than one child in their lifetime. The books also confirmed that Draks don't ''always'' reproduce asexually. And that ''falling in love'' could result in pregnancy all on its own.
* The Venusians met in ''Film/AbbottAndCostelloGoToMars'' are all female, having banished the males and claiming to have perfected immortality. One or two small girls are seen, so it's possible some form of pro-generation goes on.
* Closely related to this trope: pretty much all the Immortals shown in the ''Film/{{Highlander}}'' movie ([[FanonDiscontinuity notice that there is only one]]) are male. One theory is that since an Immortal must suffer a violent death to become... well, ''immortal'', and that in past times women were less likely to suffer violent deaths, there would be fewer female Immortals. At the same time, women were less likely to have sword training at the time of their death, and would find themselves more likely to lose a duel, even discounting any physical disadvantage. There are a number of female Immortals on the TV show, most of whom are [[ActionGirl skilled, tough and clever]] enough to have at least survived a few duels.
* For similar reasons, the [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Lycans]] of the ''{{Film/Underworld}}'' series. They were a slave race created by the vampires by infecting humans with the lycanothrapy virus, initially from a single (male) carrier [[PatientZero who was born with it]]. Since they only wanted the Lycans for physical labour, it makes sense they would only use male subjects, and as a secondary benefit, if there were no women the Lycans couldn't breed and this allowed the vampires to control their numbers. Oddly, in the few thousand years since the Lycans freed themselves, they never seemed to try turning a woman.
** A possible subversion or plot hole occurs in ''[[Film/UnderworldRiseOfTheLycans Rise of the Lycans]]''. At the beginning of the movie a werewolf gives birth to Lucian, which means that one would have to be female.
** Averted in ''[[Film/UnderworldBloodWars Blood Wars]]'', as several female Lycans can be seen in the background and fighting side by side with the males.
* A Garry Shandling vehicle named ''What Planet Are YOU From?'', starring the comedian as a member of an all-male alien race [[MarsNeedsWomen sent to Earth to procure a mate]].
* The Hutts of ''Franchise/StarWars'' are hermaphroditic, but as a cultural thing, they alternate gender terminology between the periods when they are capable of reproduction and when they are not.
* Boogymen in ''Film/DontLookUnderTheBed''. This is reveled at the end when the Boogeyman [[spoiler:turns into Frances' imaginary friend, Zoe, who insists on using boogeyperson.]]
* While not exactly a single race or species, dinosaurs in ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' are all female to prevent uncontrolled reproduction. [[spoiler:Or that's what they thought.]]
* Possibly the Frost Giants from the movie version of ''Film/{{Thor}}''. We only see the males but we do know that their king had a son with no indication of a mother.
* The vampires in ''Film/WeAreTheNight'' are all female. It's explained that the male vampires were too noticeable and were all killed off, so now there are only females left. This is also a more easily explained one, as they just only turn women.
* In the entirety of ''Film/JackTheGiantSlayer'', there is not one single female giant seen. Even the giants' fortress is inhabited only by males. Though their fortress being occupied only by males could be justified, since it is most likely a military garrison.
** The filmmakers have mentioned in an interview that there was at one point female giants in early stages of the script, but were cut out mainly because the director [[MenAreTheExpendableGender didn't want to have Jack kill any of them]].
* The Minions in the ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'' movies are often assumed to be an all-male race, due to having male names and such, though some of them aren't afraid of cross-dressing when disguising themselves.
* Vampires in ''Film/PerfectCreature'' are exclusively male, the result of a mysterious virus that causes normal women to give birth to vampires. No female was ever born, coupled with the fact they can't turn other people into vampires and are unable to breed with humans, their propagation hangs solely on more Brothers being born from this virus. [[spoiler: The plot is kicked off when its revealed they haven't produced any new members in 70 years and they turn to genetic manipulation to fix this, unleashing one crazed vampire scientist in the process]].
* 90s film ''Leapin' Leprechauns'' present all leprechauns as male and all fairies as female. When a character asks if they marry each other, both sides react offended by the idea.
* ''Film/KongSkullIsland'': [[AllThereInTheManual According to the website]], the [[GiantSpider monstrous spiders]] (called Mother Longlegs) are all female.

* In Piers Anthony's ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' novels: All-male satyrs mate with all-female dryads, and all-male fauns mate with all-female nymphs. Harpies were this for a while, forcing them to alternate vulture and human mates with each generation or die out (with such crosses always female), until a male harpy returned from suspended animation a long way into the series.
* In ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'', dryads are a females only race, leading to their ruler being TheHighQueen and their army an AmazonBrigade. It's not really explored how new dryads are born, but seeing how they're nature spirits, they probably don't need men.
* Played with in ''Literature/AncillaryJustice'' with [[TheEmpire the Radch]] being a One Gender Society. While the people are physically ordinary humans with two sexes, the Radchaai make very little distinction between them, with fashions, social opportunities, and everything else being equally applicable to both sexes. The Radchaai language doesn't even have pronouns to differentiate between them, with everyone defaulting to female, and their society is completely egalitarian with jobs determined by a standardized test called the Aptitudes that are taken sometime before adulthood. Breq often laments about the difficulty of having to decide which pronoun to use to keep from looking foolish and how relieving not having to worry about it is after returning to Radch space.
* Several examples in the ''Literature/WomenOfTheOtherworld'' series. [[WitchSpecies Witches]] are always female, and sorcerers always male, and both reproduce with humans. These are explicitly stated not to be male and female version of the same race. ([[spoiler:Until Savannah came along, that is. There are some hints that the characters may be mistaken about that "not the same race" idea...]]) The werewolf gene only passes down to sons. Werewolves reproduce with human women, but their daughters are human. Lycanthropy can be caught via infection/attack, though until recently the werewolves thought no woman could survive the Change. An infected werewolf will pass the trait down to his sons. At the end of ''Broken'', [[spoiler: Elena, the first and only female werewolf, gives birth to twins, a boy and a girl. Both of them are lycanthropes, though they will not change until [[PubertySuperpower adolescence]]. Since their father is also a werewolf, it is unclear whether sons inherit from fathers and daughters from mothers, or if mothers pass lycanthropy down to both genders.]]
* The Tleilaxu in the ''Franchise/{{Dune}}'' series are all-male, ahem, geneticists. It is later [[Literature/HereticsOfDune revealed that the "axlotl tanks" repeatedly mentioned throughout the series are semi-conscious Tleilaxu females hooked up to machines]] and used for the sole purpose of their genetic experiments, which include raising the dead by harvesting their DNA. [[spoiler: Some of them manage to escape, and are ''not'' happy about it; they become the precursors to the Honored Matres of later stories.]]
* Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold has a male one of these in ''Literature/EthanOfAthos'', where DesignerBabies are created from a bank of ovarian tissue from the initial settlement of the colony. Several generations later, the plot culminates in a representative (Ethan) leaving the planet for the first time, meeting women and the awkward diplomatic question, ''"Would you care to donate an ovary to Athos?"''
* Jack Chalker's ''Literature/WellWorld'' novels (specifically ''Quest for the Well of Souls'') include, among 779 alien species (not counting inorganic life), the Yaxa, a race of giant scary ''butterflies'' of whom only females are sentient. (This helped make up for the presence of a different insect species in the first book which were severely patriarchal. Oh, and there are also the plant-people of Czill, who are completely genderless and reproduce by budding. He likes to play with these issues a lot.)
* In Creator/StormConstantine's ''Literature/{{Wraeththu}}'' novels, the eponymous post-humans are hermaphrodites who appear male. In the first few books, they reproduce by [[TheVirus transforming human males into Wraeththu via blood transfusion]], then having [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong sexual intercourse]] with the "initiate" to set the change. Like many other One Gender Races, the Wraeththu have a female (or, in this case, feminine hermaphrodite) counterpart; and, like many other One Gender Races, the two species don't get along very well.
* Joan Slonczewski's ''Literature/ADoorIntoOcean'' is about an all female race on an ocean world Shora who reproduce by parthenogenesis. They are master genetic engineers.
* In ''Creator/MarionZimmerBradley's Fantasy Magazine'', there's a story about a race of women who reproduce by parthenogenesis. They can interbreed with male humans, losing their "family quirk", and they think of themselves as humans. Or at least they did until [[spoiler:one of them tried to give birth to a Vulcan son and almost succeeded.]]
* Creator/RoaldDahl does it twice. In ''Literature/TheBFG'' all Giants are male; the BFG explains that giants simply come into being. Conversely in ''Literature/TheWitches'' all Witches are female (though they don't interbreed with humans and are all evil), but as they are demons and not humans, it doesn't particularly matter. That book also mentions barghests and ghouls to be all-male.
* ''Literature/{{Belgariad}}'': Dryads are a female-only race that live as long as the tree to which they're bonded (sometimes hundreds or thousands of years). They reproduce by breeding with humans. Sons are human and sent to live in their father's world while daughters are dryad and raised by the dryads in the forest. The exception is the Tolnedran royal family. A dryad-human marriage means the royal males are human and the royal females are dryad, but the females remain in human society because one is destined by ancient treaty to become the wife of the Rivan King. It's strongly implied the original human-dryad marriage was a manipulation to ensure the Rivan King, who would have a sorcerer's unnatural lifespan, would be given a wife that was equal to him in both social status and lifespan, as such equalities in sorcerer marriages are very important to the gods.
* "Consider Her Ways": a John Wyndham short story about how society would function after a male {{Gendercide}}. While the new society is technically human, the species has been biologically restructured along with society into four classes: the Mothers are enormously fat and only bear children, the Workers are extremely large and strong and do physical labour, the Servitors are small and do other menial work, and the Doctorate most closely resemble contemporary humans and are the ruling intellectual class.
* The Carpathians (a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent "pre-vampire"]] species) in Christine Feehan's series of the same name have very few females, mostly due to them not being born very often, or not managing to survive the transition between drinking mother's milk and drinking blood. This leads to male Carpathians either fighting it out for the few females, or [[MarsNeedsWomen finding telepathic human females to mate with.]]
* ''Herland'' by Charlotte Perkins Gilman sort of fits this trope, as the inhabitants of Herland are perfectly normal human women but can somehow reproduce asexually.
* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' series, the golems, being created beings, are genderless. Until ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', when one of them gets named "Gladys" so the postmistress doesn't object to her cleaning the ladies' privies. Since golems basically believe what they've been told to, Gladys is subsequently female, and people think of her as such. (And in ''Discworld/MakingMoney'', Moist notes that, somehow, this seems to make the "default" golems male.)
* The witches in the ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'' trilogy constitute [[WitchSpecies a separate, entirely female species.]] They breed with human men, but generally don't get too emotionally attached, since -- compared to the witches -- humans have such very, very ''short'' [[WeAreAsMayflies lifespans]]. The children of these witch/human couplings might be male or female, but [[GenderEqualsBreed only the daughters are the same species as the mothers, the sons are short-lived humans like the fathers]]. Witches from some other worlds had men amongst their ranks, although neither male nor female witch lived any longer than humans.
* Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin's Literature/{{Hainish}} 'verse:
** In ''Literature/TheLeftHandOfDarkness'', the inhabitants of the planet Winter are humans that have been genetically engineered to spend most of their time in an androgynous, sexless form, with monthly periods of "kemmer" in which they develop sexual dimorphism (any individual can manifest either sex) and interest in intercourse. The alien impact this has on a biologically male outside observer is a major part of the plot.
** The short story "The Matter of Seggri" dealt with a planet where males are a rarity, with something like 12 females for every one male. The story subverts this somewhat by being specifically about the anthropological ramifications of having a species like that, and how it affects the planet. It is written like a study.
* Chelonians, in ''Franchise/DoctorWho'' [[Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse Expanded Universe]] novels by Gareth Roberts, are a race of hermaphroditic humanoid cyborg turtles. They all self-identify as male, but parents and offspring are referred to as "mothers" and "daughters."
* Chief Engineer Burgoyne 172 in the ''Literature/StarTrekNewFrontier'' novels is a member of a hermaphroditic race called the Hermat. S/he dismisses comparisions to the J'Naii by explaining "They are neither. We are ''both''."
* The Clayr of Creator/GarthNix's Literature/OldKingdom trilogy are mostly female. Male Clayr are mentioned in terms of their scarcity, but we never meet any. Children are typically fathered by casual lovers chosen from among the visitors to the Clayr's Glacier.
* Part of Joanna Russ's novel ''The Female Man'' is set on "Whileaway", a utopian alternate future Earth where the entire male population was killed off by a plague generations earlier, though it's implied in a couple places that the men may have in fact been killed off by the women in a world wide war of the sexes. She explores what the ramifications of a single-sex society might actually be (well, when she's not in the middle of an AuthorFilibuster about how women are oppressed): on Whileaway, for instance, the greatest sexual taboo is cross-generation, getting involved with someone old enough to be your parent or your child.
* Joanna Russ's short story "When It Changed," takes place in an all female society where a plague killed all the men. They reproduce by combining their eggs and behave in traditionally male ways. Astronauts from earth arrive and don't understand how the women could survive without men.
* A male example is used in the Creator/CordwainerSmith story ''The Crime and Glory of Commander Suzdal'' - they were created because all the females were dying out. [[MisterSeahorse Oh, and they reproduce... the normal way.]]
* The Lyranians in Creator/EEDocSmith's ''Literature/{{Lensman}}'' series have males for reproduction but they never appear and are described as short, stupid, and useful for only one thing.
* In Larry Niven's ''Draco Tavern'' series of short stories, the alien Chirpsithra are all female (or are said to appear so, though how you can tell when they're 11 feet tall with salmon-pink exoskeletons, deponent knoweth not). Males are never seen, and other races learn not to ask about them, because it offends the otherwise good-natured Chirps.
* In Rob Thurman's books featuring the [[Literature/CalLeandros Leandros brothers]], Pucks are a male-only species. They boink pretty much AnythingThatMoves, but how they reproduce is left a mystery. Since all Pucks look ''identical'', it's been implied that this is some kind of magical cloning (Hobgoblin remarks that Pucks only consider ''themselves'' worth reproducing with).
-->'''Niko:''' "You breed with yourself, goat. I believe you have the corner on inbreeding."
-->'''Hobgoblin:''' "Who else would be worthy?"
** In ''Trick of the Light'', which takes place in the same universe, the main character notes that Pucks are a clone species. How they reproduce is never stated, but in ''Nightlife'' Darkling refers to Robin as a "Mitotic shithead." Also, Pucks are referred to in several places as goats, or mutated goats, or something else about goats. Which leads one to wonder about the origin of the Puck species.
** The process is elaborated upon in ''Doubletake''. Every thousand years or so all the Pucks meet up, count how many remain and generally catch up before, naturally, engaging in an orgy with the only creatures not terrified of that many Pucks in one place. They then choose a number of Pucks by lot and order them to reproduce, which consists of somehow generating a clone completely identical to themselves, including all memory and experience. The cloning is strictly mandated, a death sentence the alternative.
* In the novella ''Houston, Houston, Do You Read?'', [[spoiler: astronauts from the present (all male) accidentally travel through time to the future Earth. Eventually, they discover that plague wiped out most human life, including all the males. The surviving women reproduce through cloning and have no interest in bringing back males, though they do want some genetic material to produce a few more templates to clone ''from''. They also have no intention of allowing the men to disrupt their way of life, and aren't going to keep them prisoner; much more humane to simply kill them.]] It was Tiptree, what do you want?
* Dwarves''/''Black Elves were originally described as spawning from stone. Creator/JRRTolkien eventually put a much-copied twist on this. Only about one female is born to every three males, and to untrained eyes, their women look very similar to men. They also dress in such a manner to add to the confusion.
--> "No Man nor Elf has ever seen a beardless Dwarf unless he were shaven in mockery, and would then be more like to die of shame than of many other hurts that to us would seem more deadly. For the Naugrim have beards from the beginning of their lives, male and female alike." - from ''The History of Middle-earth Vol XI, The War of the Jewels''
** Lampshaded in the extended edition of the movie:
-->'''Gimli''': It's true you don't see many dwarf women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for dwarf men.
-->'''Aragorn''': [whispering] It's the beards.
-->'''Gimli''': ...and this in turn has given rise to the belief that there ''are'' no dwarf women, and that dwarves just spring up out of holes in the ground! Which is, of course, ridiculous.
** The same movie presents the Uruk-Hai as all male, and literally being spawned fully-formed from mud pits.
** The surviving long-lived ents in ''TheLordOfTheRings'' are all male, due to an estrangement with the entwives thousands of years ago (the ents tended deep forest, the entwives cultivated land) never to be seen again, despite the ents' best efforts to find them again over the millennia. It is heavily implied that the entwives still exist, but they are never found during the trilogy.
-->'''Treebeard''': We lost the entwives.
-->'''Pippin''': I'm sorry. How did they die?
-->'''Treebeard''': Die? No. We ''lost'' them, and now we cannot find them!
* From ''Literature/HarryPotter'':
** Ambiguous case with the Veela. The Slavic fairies they're based on are all female, as are all the ones mentioned in the books. However, a distinction is made between full veela and [[HalfHumanHybrid humans with veela blood]], which would seem to necessitate male veelas as well. For what it's worth, WordOfGod does mention one part-veela male: [[spoiler:Louis, the eighth-veela son of Fleur and Bill]].
** Similarly, all centaurs seen in the books are male. WordOfGod says that yes, they are a one-gender race.
** Hags are also mentioned at various points, and seem to all be female.
** And all the goblins mentioned are male.
*** While there is no mention of female goblins in the books, the film of ''Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'' features a female goblin night-club singer.
* Used painfully (and deconstructed) in ''Literature/TheImmortals'' by Creator/TamoraPierce. All 'Immortals'--species which cannot die of old age or disease, but ''can'' be killed by physical or magical means--are born in the Divine Realms as the product of human dreams or nightmares. One such species, the Tauros, is essentially a race of minotaurs who exist to rape and kill women. Daine, the protagonist of the story, asks the god of the 'duckmoles' (platypuses), if there even ''are'' any female Tauroses. When he says no, she gets angry and basically says 'well no wonder they attack human women all the time! That's all they know to do without women of their own who can handle it!' Broadfoot, the duckmole, muses that she's right, and 'Someone should consult the Greater Gods about this...'
* The Draconians from the ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'' novels are all male in the earlier works. This is explained and expanded on in a later book, ''Literature/TheDoomBrigade''. Very short version, Draconians were a created race, and the creators decided at the last minute not to allow the draconians to breed, and put the eggs containing the female draconians into magical stasis. They were eventually freed.
* The Hork-Bajir from ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' are originally seen this way, the only (externally noticeable) difference being the females have one less facial horn than the males (The free Hork-Bajir who relates this says that there are other differences as well, but refuses to share them).
* In ''The Faery Rebels'' faeries are an all-female race, who leave an egg containing a new faery when they die. Later in the book, it is revealed that [[spoiler:this isn't supposed to happen. Faeries would marry human men and have their children, then bring back any daughters they had to be raised in the wyld as faeries.]]
** In the second book [[spoiler: we find out this isn't the norm either. Male faeries do exist, and just as frequently as females. Mating with humans is unusual for their kind.]]
* The Arachosians in Creator/CordwainerSmith's short story "The Crime and Glory of Commander Suzdal" are a LostColony consisting only of men, as the result of something unexplained about their star which "makes femininity carcinogenic".
* In the ''Literature/WorldOfTiers'' by Creator/PhilipJoseFarmer, the all-male Zebrillas are the males for the all-female Dryad. If the offsping is male, he will be a Zebrilla, else, she will be a Dryad. The Zebillas are tall, bipedal gorillas with human intelligence and the Dryads are a whole race of paragons of feminine beauty. The Thoan RPG even had a picture of a mating between a Zebrilla and a Dryad.
* The Myrddraal in ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' are presumed to be this, as they're all male looking (though they're usually referred to as "it" rather than "he", suggesting that they simply don't have a gender). As Myrddraal are a mutant offshoot of [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Trollocs]], they don't have to worry about reproduction -- new ones will be born among the Trollocs as a matter of course. Averted with the Trollocs themselves -- though none have been confirmed on-page, WordOfGod is that there ''are'' female Trollocs.
* Justified with the Confessors in Terry Goodkind's ''Literature/SwordOfTruth'' series, since male Confessors don't have the recovery time after using their powers that their female counterparts have, they turn into absolute tyrants. [[spoiler: Male infanticide has been practiced since the last male Confessor was killed, and YMMV on whether it's made more or less horrifying by the Confessed lovers of Confessors having to do the killing.]]
* The humans in the ''Literature/{{Celaeno}}'' series by Jane Fletcher are all female, as are (presumably) the domesticated animals. Only the animals indigenous to the planet reproduce naturally, the domesticated animals are cloned, while the humans have their genetic information [[HomosexualReproduction imprinted from the gene-mother to the birth-mother]].
* In Fletcher's other series, ''Literature/LyremouthChronicles'', she solves the issue of dwarf women by making the dwarves hermaphrodites.
* All extraterrestrial species--not the unique [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]]--in the works of Creator/HPLovecraft are composed of neuter creatures that reproduce asexually. Though nothing is stated outright, the implication is that asexuality, in all possible senses, is a ''necessity'' for technological advancement on the scale that [[Literature/TheWhispererInDarkness the Mi-Go]], [[Literature/AtTheMountainsOfMadness the Elder Things]], and [[Literature/TheShadowOutOfTime the Great Race of Yith]] demonstrate. It's likely that the aforementioned unique [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] have non-binary genders as well; the narrator of "Literature/TheCallOfCthulhu" refers to Cthulhu as "he" sometimes, but it's the epicene "he," judging from the number of times Cthulhu is also called "It."
* The Gorg from ''Literature/TheTrueMeaningOfSmekday''. The species they belong to probably used to have females, but now [[spoiler:they're all clones]].
* In [[Literature/InCryptid Discount Armageddon]], the dragon princesses - women who hang out with dragons, or at least did until all the dragons were killed - are thought to be this, until [[spoiler:the last '''male''' dragon turns up, and it's revealed that the dragon princesses are actually just female dragons.]] They can reproduce by parthenogenesis, which is why they all look so similar.
* The koloss from the ''Literature/{{Mistborn}}'' trilogy are all male, though this is because they are an unnatural race and do not reproduce by normal means. [[spoiler: Instead, they're created by binding five people together with a special skin and four hemalurgic spikes. This is why they're as strong as five people and are confused by conflicting memories.]] This is retconned at some point, as a "Koloss-blooded" brigand turns up in ''The Alloy of Law,'' implying that Koloss have learned how to sexually reproduce, and even interbreed with humans.
* The Khepri of the Literature/BasLagCycle are a version of this trope. Males and females both exist, but only females are sentient. Females resemble a red-skinned human woman with a scarab beetle for a head; males are just the scarab and are essentially mindless.
* The ''Literature/RainbowMagic'' series has all-male goblins. A few books imply that females exist, but we never see them.
* In Greg Egan's novella ''Oceanic'', whether you're born with a penis ('bridge') isn't important; each time you copulate, it detaches and re-attaches itself to the other partner. Married couples take turns bearing children. This race of humans was artificially created, apparently because members of the uploaded human societies that appear in various of Egan's other works (especially ''Diaspora'') thought giving up the flesh had been bad for their souls.
** Egan's novel ''Schild's Ladder'' has a somewhat similar setup. Pronouns still have gender, determined not by physical sex (which is temporary anyway) but by the traditional and arbitrary gender of the given name. Some people like to tease earlier-model humans who show up out of the deep past (thanks to relativistic time compression) by telling them fanciful stories about sex.
* As best as anyone can tell, the Uleb and their various descendants in ''Literature/PerryRhodan'' are single-gendered (and the male pronoun is used throughout) yet clearly capable of reproduction -- how exactly is never detailed, though the fact that in one issue the Halutian Icho Tolot managed to somehow produce (sadly short-lived) offspring after decades on a human generation ship with no other members of his species around suggests that either parthenogenesis is at least one option or that his species is capable of storing donated genetic material for considerable timespans. It's probably justified in that the original Uleb were an "artificial" species, intended to replace the extant "warrior" species of M 87's galactic caste system with a genetically engineered new and improved super soldier version.
* ''Literature/SecondApocalypse'' due to a {{gendercide}} called the Womb Plague, presumably caused as a side effect of the immortality granted to them by the treacherous Inchoroi, the Nonmen are a race of immortal males who have all been slowly succumbing to despair, madness and TheFogOfAges.
* ''Literature/{{Fablehaven}}'' has a few of these. Fairies are always female [[spoiler:because the male fairies were transformed into imps]]. Astrids are all male.
* Discussed in ''Literature/SpaceCadet'' by Creator/RobertHeinlein. The Venerians seen are all female, and Oscar is asked if they even have males or if they're this trope. He replies that they definitely have two sexes, but no human has ever seen a male.
* In ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', [[PlanetOfHats Azania]] is not yet there, but working hard to ''become'' this. Ruled by feminist ideologues, it has outlawed natural births, hoping to breed a new, all-female humanity through eugenic cloning.
* ''Literature/TheStarsAreLegion'' by Creator/KameronHurley is set on a series of worlds with all-female inhabitants. The women get pregnant according to the whims of the world and give birth to whatever the world needs. Not whoever, ''[[OrganicTechnology whatever]]''.
* ''{{Literature/Green}}'' downplays and justifies this trope to the point where it's reasonable. The majority of leprechauns are male, but there ''are'' females. This is because leprechauns are a very long-lived species and the gender-imbalance serves as population control by stopping them from having too many babies.
-->'''Brownwyn:''' We leprechauns live a long time, Lil. A very long time, indeed, by human standards. If our numbers were equal between the sexes, we'd have overrun you ages ago. But our lasses are born scarcely one to four lads. It's nature's little way o' keeping the folk in check.
* ''Literature/EmpireFromTheAshes'': The Achuultani are all male, and reproduce via cloning. [[spoiler:Because the evil A.I. running their culture won't allow female cloning or normal breeding.]]
* ''Literature/ThePentagonWar'': Each Centaurian is both male and female. Being born with only male or female parts is considered a birth defect. They still require a partner to mate with, but both of them can get pregnant from the encounter.

[[folder: Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' has the J'Naii, a species of androgynous/hermaphroditic beings. However, one identifies far more as female than male, and falls in love with Riker. As she explains, she's ''always'' felt more female than male, and is certain there are members of her race who feel the same way, or are more male than female. The ruling J'Naii, however, cannot accept this, and so have her [[{{Brainwashed}} subjected]] to "psychotectic treatment". The episode, of course, is a "[[{{Anvilicious}} thinly-veiled]]" [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything metaphor for acceptance of gay and transgender identities]]. (Or, at least, [[BrokenAesop it's meant to be]].)
** [[Recap/StarTrekS2E15TheTroubleWithTribbles Tribbles]]. One sex, seemingly born pregnant, according to Dr. [=McCoy=]. ("Seems to be a helluva time saver!")
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** The Drahvins, from the William Hartnell story [[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E1Galaxy4 "Galaxy Four"]], are a seemingly all-female race. They use the few males only for breeding. Their commanders are naturally born and their footsoldiers are clones.
** The Sontarans on are a militant male-presenting race who reproduce through cloning. They have noticeable difficulty with the very idea of gender (e.g. two genders is "a bit further than they can count"). According to some of the ExpandedUniverse material their species originally reproduced normally and was far less war fixated until the day a horrendously narcissistic military man, one General Sontar, started cloning himself and slaughtered the rest of the population. The canonicity of this is disputed, however.
*** The first Sontaran we met mistook Sarah-Jane for another species, and deemed human reproduction "inefficient" when corrected. In their first revival appearance, the Sontaran commanders acknowledged Martha as female but were sexist about it. It's now a RunningGag that "heroic" Sontaran Strax has difficulty with this and keeps defaulting to male pronouns.
** The Sisterhood of Karn in "The Brain of Morbius" are all female and do not reproduce, being instead immortal.
** The Time Lords had Susan as their sole female representative for a long time (and she wasn't even around when [[ContinuityDrift the concept of Time Lord even existed in the show]] - the Doctor was AmbiguouslyHuman during her tenure). Note that the name of the species implies this. Tom Baker even assumed the Time Lords were all male and purposely played his Doctor a little awkward around women to give the impression. Of course, the addition of a Time Lady character in the late 70s removed this assumption.
*** In fact, with the Master becoming the Mistress (and the episode "Hell Bent" in series 9) it has been established that Time Lords(/Ladies) can change sex when regenerating.
** The [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E2TheShakespeareCode Carrionites]] are all female from what we see of them, and can apparently engage in HomosexualReproduction.
** The Original Cybermen were all male models.
** Also, according to WordOfGod, the original inhabitants of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS22E1AttackOfTheCybermen Telos, the Cryons]], are an all-female race.
** Daleks are biologically genderless and reproduce by genetic engineering and cloning. They are usually referred to as "it", but occasionally people or the daleks themselves use male pronouns to describe them.
** [=TARDISes=] apparently. In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E4TheDoctorsWife "The Doctor's Wife"]], [[spoiler:the TARDIS herself said that House's planet was filled with the corpses of her sisters. Well of course -- Ships are always females.]]
* The Jem'Hadar on ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', genetically engineered by the Founders to serve as soldiers. Weirdly, though they are also cloned, the Vorta are ''not'' single-gender. Probably because the Vorta were adapted from a pre-existing species, while the Jem'Hadar seem to have been created out of whole cloth (it might also have something to do with the Vorta being intended as diplomats). Earlier in the series we were introduced to a never again seen Gamma Quadrant species that was awfully similar to the Jem'Hadar, except with more limited versions of their abilities.
** [[http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/Captive_Pursuit_%28episode%29 Word of God]] states the [[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS01E06CaptivePursuit Tosk]] were created by the Dominion as a gift to the race that hunts them.
* The Taresians of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' are a species consisting entirely of females that mate with males of other humanoid species to perpetuate themselves by implanting viruses in them that slowly turn them into male Taresians. As it turns out, the mating process (one male is given up to three females as his wives) is deadly toward males as [[DeathBySex they die after mating with their wives]]. Harry Kim was implanted with a virus that made him believe that he was secretly a Taresian, but eventually he and the Voyager crew find out the truth about the Taresians and rescue Kim before he became their next victim.
* In ''Series/TheOuterLimits1995'' episode "Lithia", one of the episodes involved an all female post-apocalyptic society in which almost all males were wiped off the planet due to a scourge virus. They decided to not reintroduce the remaining men into the population because every time they took one out of stasis, it caused conflict in the society because the men pushed limits that the elders were not comfortable with, like building generators or stealing from other towns. Sucks to be male.
* ''Series/BabylonFive'':
** On screen, all pak'ma'ra have just one gender, which is neither male nor female, reproducing asexually through parthenogenis every five years or so. However, they do engage in carnal acts that would otherwise be viewed as sexual, including with [[BoldlyComing other species]] (assisted by technology when necessary), though purely for recreation. Given this they lack a concept of marriage, with most living alone, though some do have what are called "thought mates" which are more like a very close friend. Nevertheless expanded material subverts this as other sources like the Role Playing Game guide says that actually their humps are their females (pak'ma'ra without humps are the equivalent of a single person).
** In ''Series/{{Crusade}}'' the Drazi are mentioned to be hermaphroditic and all look and act like males in-universe. (Nevertheless this might contradict the fact that in the mother series ''Series/BabylonFive'' Londo mocks the Drazi ambassador implying that his wife had an affair. Of course whether this still means that they are hermaphrodites and still marry and one of them assumes the role of wife or Londo didn't know that they are hermaphrodites is up to you).
* The centaurs in ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' and ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' are all male. They reproduce with human women.
* ''Series/EarthFinalConflict'': The Taelons are a single gender race, or perhaps a no gender race. It's mentioned in the first episode when one character questions another's use of the pronoun "he", which they use through the series. Although he was probably acting as an AudienceSurrogate for anyone who knew they cast all the Taelons with female actors. In the final season, [[BigBad Howlyn]] asks Zo'or how "he" would handle becoming an [[OutVampiresAreDifferent Atavus]] (the original species, from which the Taelons and [[TheReptilians Jaridians]] were created), a two-gender race. Naturally, given who plays Zo'or, the Taelon ends up becoming a female Atavus. It's never made clear how the Taelons came to be this trope. The original Taelons were cultists, who drained the rest of the Atavus of their core energy to make themselves TheAgeless, turning the rest into the short-lived Jaridians. They were flawed creations and nearly died out, until the Kimera came and corrected their genome (the Taelons thanked them by wiping them out).
* Dwarfs in ''Series/OnceUponATime'' are all male, and hatch fully grown (and clothed!) from eggs. Fairies are all female, and their origins have not been explored (although given that the AllMythsAreTrue includes ''Literature/PeterPan'', the laughter of babies is a possibility).
* The Venusians in ''Series/ElChapulinColorado'' are all female and in JungleGirl outfit.
* ''Series/TheOrville'': Moclans have only males. [[spoiler: Turns out they do have females, but they're rare and Moclan society mandates that they be surgically reassigned as males, as Moclans consider the female gender a horrific birth defect that needs to be fixed.]]

[[folder:Mythology and Religion]]
* In Western folklore, Werewolves are almost always male, as Human men tend to get hairy later on in their lives during puberty.
* OlderThanFeudalism: Myth/GreekMythology has many humanoid beings that appear to be of a single sex, such as female harpies, male satyrs, male centaurs, and female nymphs (which are minor deities that can interbreed with human men). This has inspired many of the other examples on this page. In late Classical works there were female centaurs and satyrs, but these are unusual cases; kentaurides (the female centaurs) were barely spoken of in ancient Greek literature and only one example, Hylonome, is mentioned by name, while the satyresses (the female satyrs) are [[CanonImmigrant Canon Immigrants]] from late 15th/early 16th century poems and art, and didn't exist at all in the ancient works.
** Originally satyrs were depicted as human men with beards, bald foreheads, pug noses, pointed ears, horses tails, and constant erections. Technically, only the tails and ears set them apart from standard image of a 'wild man'.
** The original Greek depiction of the very human Amazon civilization variably implied they replenished their numbers the way most warrior cultures did, from [[AbductionIsLove invading villages]]. And depending on how charitable the writer was, any male children were either returned to be reared in those villages, or killed.
** Greek mythology also had the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gargareans Gargareans,]] an all-male tribe and SpearCounterpart to the Amazons. The two tribes depended on one another for reproduction.
** Most bizarre of all, Creator/{{Hesiod}} apparently considered ''humanity'' to be all male before the gods "cursed" men with the horror of living with women, ruining human society forever. [[SarcasmMode Nope, no misogyny here.]]
* Some mythologies depict fairies as always female. The human-sized fairies in French fairy tales are always described as female (although similar male beings called genii, wizards, or enchanters appear in some stories, who might be their [[SpearCounterpart male counterparts]]). Several stories feature fairies marrying human princes.
* Angels are always male according to ''Literature/TheQuran.''
* ''Literature/TheBible'' never outright says angels are all male, but this is sometimes assumed because no females are mentioned and all named angels are referred to with male pronouns. Some think they have NoBiologicalSex because of Jesus saying they never marry. Very few angels are mentioned by name, so it's possible there are female angels, they just happen to be off screen. Basically in Christianity this topic is very open to interpretation.
* Chinese [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] are often depicted as being always male, in contrast to the always female [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fenghuang fenghuang]] (a mythical bird similar to ThePhoenix).

* The only creatures shown in ''Pinball/{{Barracora}}'' are female... or at least possess NonMammalMammaries.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* In the paper-and-pencil RPG ''TabletopGame/CastleFalkenstein'', Dwarves ''are'', in fact, exclusively male. They mate with the females of other Faerie-kind (some varieties of which are all-female); male offspring are Dwarves, while female offspring are the same kind of Fae as their mother.
* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'':
** All-male satyrs mate with all-female dryads, and all-male fauns mate with all-female nymphs. The two races are close enough to immortal that it doesn't much matter anyway; both can also mate with humans to create {{Half Human Hybrid}}s.
** The all-female race of hags. Hags mate with male humans (and typically [[DeathBySex subsequently kill and eat them]]) to either produce a female hag or a male hagspawn which have almost none of the magical abilities of their mothers, and Hags in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' give birth to all-female {{changeling|Tale}}s, who must be persuaded, tricked or coerced into undergoing a magical ritual to become hags in turn. Well, to be accurate, they have male offspring as well, but A: very rarely, and B: they kill them on birth.
** D&D medusas (based on gorgons) ''aren't'' this; male medusas are called maedars, and are bald humanoids with an affinity for snakes and an intristic ''stone to flesh'' ability. They're also extremely rare. In 4th edition, male medusa are just called that, look just like masculine counterparts to the medusa (still bald, though) and have traded the stone-to-flesh-by-touch power for a gaze attack lifted straight from the mythological basilisk. That is, if they look at you, their gaze is so venomous you die of poisoning if you meet their eye. This is the same edition that states there are male harpies, whereas the previous editions meandered between implying that harpies kidnapped human men to breed with and that they laid eggs parthenogenically.
** There are four species of sphinx; three of which are always male (evil hawk-headed heirocosphinxes, neutral but brutish ram-headed criosphinxes, and good human-headed androsphinxes) and one of which is always female (neutral human-headed gynosphinxes - they're the ones who like [[RiddlingSphinx riddles]]). All three male sphinxes can mate with the gynosphinx and have offspring of their own type, but gynosphinxes can only be born of an androsphinx father. For this reason, and the temperament, gynosphinxes prefer androsphinxes.
** In 2nd Edition AD&D, the standard version of the minotaur was an all-male race. New minotaurs came into being when a human male was cursed to become one by the gods, or when a minotaur abducted and impregnated a human woman. Note that this only applied to the "default" version, and minotaurs from specific game-settings such as Literature/{{Dragonlance}} did come in two genders. (4th Edition averts the trope altogether.)
** Nixies in the TableTopGames/{{Mystara}} setting are an all-female race of water-spirits.
** The third-party setting ''Oathbound'' has aurads, who appear male and reproduce via circle-jerking. (No, really.)
** In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', xills (a CaptainErsatz of [[ChestBurster A.E. van Vogt's Ixtl]]) and thriae ([[WomensMysteries inscrutable seers]] based off of [[BeePeople bees]]) are all female. The [[FishPeople Deep One-inspired skum]] are all male.
* The Orks in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' (and possibly the Orcs in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'') seem to be all ridiculously masculine, early [[RetCon non-canonical]] references to female Orks notwithstanding; however, since [=Wh40k=] Orks are actually a hybridization of mammal and ''fungus'' that reproduce via spores, attempting to assign a gender to them is basically an exercise in futility.
** ''TabletopGame/BloodBowl'' has [[http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat1290340&prodId=prod1560097 orc cheerleaders,]] which are female. Then again, ''Blood Bowl'' is essentially an alternate universe.
** According to one supplement, the Gene-Seed—the stuff that makes SpaceMarines grow to nine-foot tall poison-drinking, car-lifting supermen—is only compatible with male genetics. This is probably due to several of the upgrades being essentially weaponized TestosteronePoisoning.
** Theoretically all Tyranids are this, as there is no documentation on exactly how they "reproduce" (The Norn Queens require biomass to create new creatures but doesn't seem to need anything resembling a male to actually spawn them). Things get weird when you realize that, due to their symbiotic weapons, they ''all'' technically qualify as females as their weapons spawn and gestate eggs, then spew them out via a muscle spasm.
** Chaos Daemons, aside those of Slaanesh, are generally mono-gendered due to the fact that they're fragment representations of their respective Chaos Gods. This is because rather than being born biologically, they're created via other methods (Khornate and Tzeentchan Daemons are usually created by actions of their respective gods, while Plaguebearers are spawned from the departed souls of people who die from Nurgle's plagues). Slaanesh is a special case because he/she/it and all of his/her/it's daemons tend to switch pronouns depending on who you ask (Eldar exclusively refer to Slaaneshi daemons with female pronouns) and technically Slaanesh is a hermaphrodite.
* ''TabletopGame/TranshumanSpace'' features a few StrawFeminist geneticists trying to engineer an all-female human subrace.
* ''Toys/{{Xevoz}}'' gets hit hard with this one -- six races, with two more added later on, and every single member is male, or at least lacking any distinct female traits (one race is EnergyBeings after all). Unless you consider that ony the drones in an insect colony are male, and the two character types under the BigCreepyCrawlies race are heavily implied to be soldiers rather than drones.
* While not technically a "race" in the usual sense, ''TabletopGame/EclipsePhase'''s combat-tailored [[AmazonBrigade Fury]] biomorphs are almost all female, in order to reduce unnecessary aggression.
* The Lizardmen in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' are all males; they are born from spawning pools throughout Lustria, and were initially created by the Old Ones. Their war with the Skaven began when the Skaven poisoned one city's spawning pools.
** Actually, since the Lizardmen don't reproduce sexually, it is more correct to say they are genderless. Though male pronouns are generally used if necessary. The Skaven, while apparently all male, do have females - it's just that their extreme sexual dimorphism means those females are giant, barely sentient breeding machines confined to their burrows.
* The Medusas of ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} TabletopGame/{{Banestorm}}'' are all female. They mate (carefully) with humans, elves, and orcs' males to produce offspring. The kids are usually medusas, but some are boys with a recessive medusa trait.
** WordOfGod says that the world of the Banestorm also has ''Euryales,'' a small all-female reptilian race, whose eggs are fertilized by eating their dead; and ''Sthenos,'' a much bigger all-female reptilian race, produced by a virus that infects human (or orc or elf) women, and spontaneously transforms them if they are violently injured.
* Lampshaded in ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} Dungeon Fantasy'': "there are female fauns, and bringing up the myth that fauns and nymphs are males and females of a single species is an excellent way to start a fight."
* ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'':
** The modern [[BeastMan Ahrimanes]] are all-female by choice, as the one Ahrimane who can create more of her kind isn't interested in changing men. Male Ahrimanes are possible in ''V20 Dark Ages'', but they and their creator find themselves being hunted down. Trans women are accepted, as the Ahrimanes judge by spirit rather than body.
** The [[BrownNote Daughters of Cacophony]] were all-female in Revised, again seemingly by choice, with no physical restrictions on Embracing men. Other editions have the bloodline female-dominated, with a few men as members.

* In ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'', there were different types of the Matoran (and Toa and Turaga) race, grouped by different {{Elemental Powers}}. Most elements are male only, including five of the six common elements. The only of the six most common elements to be all-female is water, along with some uncommon elements. The only co-ed element is light. Justified in that Matoran gender differences are psychological only, and it is unlikely that they could reproduce sexually, as it has been said that Matoran were created by the great beings.
** The element of psionics is an interesting case. The first Toa of psionics was male, and fucked up horribly in the task assigned to him (he was suppose to pacify the Zygaks, but threw a tampertantrum so hard the Zygaks are now known to be the most ''vicious animals in the universe''), so the great beings decided to make every Toa of psionics after him female.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/GuildWars'' contains two races that fit this category as of the Eye of the North expansion: Dwarves and Charr. In the case of the latter, it has been explained why this is the case, and in the case of the former it is lampshaded by one of the dwarf character's random lines.
** 'How do you know you've never seen a female dwarf? Eh? Eh?'
** Similarly, the Harpies appear to be this, as all 3 humanoid forms are female, and while never directly explained it's implied the griffins that accompany them could possibly be their males.
* ''VideoGame/DungeonSiegeII'' has the Dryads. Quoted from page 40 of the manual, "These creatures resembled Human females in many ways. (If there are male Dryads, they keep themselves well-hidden. None has ever been seen." Also, "No one knows how they reproduce (any enquiries on the subject are met with hostile silence)".
** Half Giants are all male, though they can procreate with other races. A quest explains that [[spoiler: they originated when a group of Agallan giants betrayed their kin and for this they and their offspring were cursed to be small. There were no women among the traitors, so all Half-Giants are male.]]
* Mithra and Galka in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'':
** Galka are male-only, and "reproduce" by reincarnation. It is suggested that the number of Galka in the world is either fixed or slowly decreasing due to premature death.
** Players can only choose to play female Mithra, with the excuse that the number of male Mithra is so critically low that they have been forced into protective status while the females are the ones that venture outside their homeland to adventure and hunt. It is not exactly an enviable position as most males are forced into passionless sex for reproductive purposes, but a few certain males with intelligence and loose morals (like Lehko Habhoka) use their rarity to gain power and status.
** Later, an all-female [[AlwaysChaoticEvil enemy race]] called the [[SnakePeople Lamia]] was added to the game, though their status as one may be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by the insinuation that they're actually an artificial race used as biological weapons...and because the [[OurMonstersAreDifferent mythical creatures]] they're based on are always depicted as female.
* Also in the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' franchise, the [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance various incarnations]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII of Ivalice]] (aside from the all-human original ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'') feature the Gria. Except for humans, most other races are effectively all-male, as well, but it appears simply because they have no alternate gender appearance, and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2'' has a Luck Stick vendor and exchanger who are described in-game as male and female, respectively, in spite of appearing completely identical. The Seeq have an official female sprite, though it's just a Seeq Viking with a pink outfit and lipstick, and not playable.
** Officially there are male Viera, though none have appeared in any games. According to canon sources, they live separate from the female half of the species and the two populations only meet when it's babymaking time. A young, spoiled Viera appears in a series of missions in [=TA2=], and wants the player to help her capture a Wyrm so that she can take it home and impress her father. So far, Gria have only appeared in one game of the Ivalice series, and their role was tertiary at best, so no word yet on how their society functions.
** Tactics A2 plays with your expectations a little, with the Duelhorn Boss, Night Dancer. From first appearances you might think she's the only female Bangaa character and therefore is safe for your Viera unit to hit under the "No Harming Opposite Gender" law. But no, she's [[UnsettlingGenderReveal got a pickle surprise.]]
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' introduces the Garif. [[SpearCounterpart like the Viera]], all of the ones that you meet are a single gender, though in this case they're all males. Also like the Viera, canon sources outside the game state that the two genders live separately.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' had races based on ''XI'''s, so like the Galka and Mithra, the Roegadyn were only male and Miqo'te only female. The opposite sexes of the races ''did'' exist; a prominent NPC, Merlwyb, was a female Roegadyn. However, as of ''A Realm Reborn'', both males and females of all races are playable.
** The [[SnakePeople Ananta]] are an all-female beast tribe introduced in ''Stormblood'' who are able to reproduce without the need of males, which they consider to be a blessing from their goddess Lakshmi.
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'':
** The Gerudo are an entirely female race of warrior-thieves. Even though they're apparently human, only one Gerudo male is born every hundred years (the only one known is [[BigBad Ganondorf]]) and is destined to become king. In fact, the Gerudo often leave the desert and visit Hyrule for the purpose of finding a man to borrow (or even marry) in order to make more little Gerudo.
** Gorons all identify as male, referring to each other as "Brother." This could be the case of identity rather than biological sex or they could be {{Truly Single Parent}}s, since all cases of child Gorons seen in the series only have fathers and mothers are never mentioned. The manga of ''Ocarina of Time'' has a few female Gorons that are only visibly different due to [[TertiarySexualCharacteristics long eyelashes]]. ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' references this ambiguity by showing that two Goron men have been allowed in the women-only Gerudo Town, and absolutely no one knows why this is, least of all the Gorons.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Startopia}}'', all alien species are [[DittoAliens identical]], except the sexy Dahanese Sirens - beautiful humanoids with angel wings whose role on the station is to "love" other beings. They have two models, one purple-haired woman in a racing swimsuit, and one blonde, shirtless man.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** The asari are a literal one-gender race, who reproduce through parthenogenesis. Of course, they're also among the wisest and most ancient races in the galaxy, powerful users of biotic techniques, and the founders of the Citadel Council, which governs 80% of known space. But the player is likely to be more interested in their ability to 'merge' with anyone, regardless of race and gender. The asari even have a [[FantasticRacism Fantastic Self-Racism]] against asari who join with other asari. Partly because the race feels that nothing new is gained from merging with other asari, and partly because only "pureblooded" asari can be born with a genetic birth defect that turns them into deadly sex vampires.
** There isn't as much focus on it, but most of the other non-human races are functionally one-gendered races as well, at least in the first two games. That is, females are either implied or stated to exist, but are never seen due to lack of an in-game model. A female Krogan (just one) and a female Turian are finally seen in ''Mass Effect 3''. There are also two female Salarians (one if you saved the Council in ''Mass Effect''), but they look identical to the males. It's stated in the Codex that Salarians have far fewer females than males and as a result of this most females stay on their homeworld and major colony worlds to stay safe and make sure the species can still reproduce. Female Krogan and Turians become much more common in ''Andromeda''.
* ''Franchise/DragonAge'':
** This was widely believed of the Qunari in-universe until envoys came to Seheron. Only male qunari fight as soldiers, and soldiers were the only qunari seen until a peace was struck. No female qunari had been seen prior to ''Inquisition.''
** The descendants of Andraste, the game's chief human deity, a Jesus/Mary/Mohammad/Joan of Arc analog. She had two daughters with her mortal husband. Andraste's older daughter had one child, but that granddaughter died childless. Andraste's younger daughter had a [[MassiveNumberedSiblings large number of children]]. However, Andraste's daughter only had daughters herself, and ''they'' only had daughters, and so on. But since these women married into other families, and because [[ApocalypseHow the Second Blight]] destroyed too many records, historians lost track of them through the ages.
* ''VideoGame/XCOM2'' introduced the Vipers, a race of all-female SnakePeople with [[NonMammalianMammaries venom glands for breasts]]. In the "Alien Hunters DLC" you encounter a Viper King, the only male instance of the species encountered, and Dr. Vahlen discovers that their species is like this as a result of genetic manipulation by the Ethereals.
* Possibly the silliest example is ''VideoGame/GenderWars'', in which humanity has separated along gender lines into two warring factions of exaggerated stereotypes, both of which reproduce through technology, along with stealing ''required genetic materials'' from the other side.
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'':
** A number of Pokemon are all-male or all-female (for example, Jynx and Kangaskhan are all female while Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan are all male), while others are simply male and female versions of each other (Volbeat/Illumise and Nidoran family since their Eggs can hatch either of them,[[note]]At least since Generation V[[/note]] possibly Tauros/Miltank and Braviary/Mandibuzz), or evolutions that cut across gender lines.
** While most Legendary Pokemon are genderless, a few of them do have gender. Latios and Latias are one of the first of those legendary Pokemon with a gender, though Latios is always male while Latias is always female as they are [[BizarreSexualDimorphism implied to be members of the same "species"]]. The Forces of Nature (Tornadus, Thundurus and Landorus) are all male.
** Burmy will evolve into Wormadam (female) or Mothim (male).
** Some Pokémon can only evolve if they are the correct gender. Combee and Salandit will only evolve to Vespiquen and Salazzle if they are female; males are out of luck.
** While both genders are capable of evolution, only male Kirlia and female Snorunt are capable of also evolving into a different Pokémon: Gallade and Froslass, courtesy of a Dawn Stone.
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** The Dremora, a race of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]], are mistakenly believed to be the case by both mortals in-universe and players. There are rare female Dremora in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', but seeing as they only appear in one caste and don't have spoken lines, this was probably a mistake. ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline Online]]'' properly introduces female Dremora and gives them some characterization. (Dremora have a male dominated society and strong StayInTheKitchen attitudes, believing females to be inferior in war, with females only serving in combat roles as [[GuysSmashGirlsShoot support troop mages or skirmishers]].)
** Golden Saints (Aureal) and Dark Seducers (Mazken), two other forms of lesser Daedra in service to Sheogorath (Daedric Prince of [[MadGod Madness]]), are almost entirely female. (There are more male Golden Saints and Dark Seducers than there are female Dremora.)
** Winged Twilights are a [[BatOutOfHell bat-like]] form of lesser Daedra with some [[HarpingOnAboutHarpies harpy-like]] traits. All Winged Twilights encountered by mortals to date have been female.
** Similar to the lesser Daedra above, [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]], a form of [[DragonsAreDivine divine]] [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Aedric]] entity, are not known to have sexes nor reproduce. All known dragons have spoken with male voices, however.
** Most denizens of Tamriel believe this to be the case for the [[OurGiantsAreDifferent Giants]], but they actually subvert it. There ''are'' female Giants, but they are very rarely ever seen by outsiders, leading many to mistakenly believe that this is the case for the Giants.
** Likewise, most denizens of Tamriel believe this to be the case for [[ALoadOfBull Minotaurs]]. Like Giants, it is actually subverted. Female Minotaurs do exist, but they are just so rarely seen by outsiders that most believe all Minotaurs to be male.
** This is played straight by Hagravens, a species of flightless [[HarpingOnAboutHarpies harpy]] who were [[WasOnceAMan once mortal women]] who traded their humanity for [[WitchSpecies access to powerful magic]]. All known Hagravens have been female, but they get around any reproductive issues since Hagravens aren't born, but are created by transforming mortal women.
** Nymphs, a type of nature spirit, also play this straight. All known Nymphs take the form of beautiful, naked women.
** Similarly, Spriggans are another type of nature spirit who take the forms of humanoid female [[WhenTreesAttack tree-like]] PlantPeople. All known Spriggans have taken a humanoid female form, including [[NonMammalMammaries a noticeable bust]].
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'':
** Oracles, Murlocs, and Kobolds seem rather one-gendery.... though they maybe don't have any sexual dimorphism at all. Furbolgs are a good example of this. The one female furbolg seen looks exactly like every other furbolg out there.
** Several races have both genders according to the lore, but only one (male, with an exception being the succubus) is depicted in game. Ogres, Broken and Lost Ones, for example...although a half-finished female Broken model exists in the game source. Literally ''half''-finished. If the macro system's [=UnitSex=]() function is to believed, some of the 'all male races' such as Ogres do have female individuals in the game. Apparently the player characters just can't tell the difference.
** The Warcraft D20 monster manual states explicitly that Harpies reproduce by raping a captured humanoid race, preferring elves and humans.
** The above quote is about the mogu, which had women at one point, but after their return to stone bodies and resulting lack of need for sexual reproduction, different sexes have been effectively outmoded and now all mogu appear "male". Lei Shen's Twin Consorts are rumored to be the only female-looking mogu in modern existence, and they suffer from the same HugeGuyTinyGirl syndrome as draenei, as a result of being literally built based on Lei Shen's personal specifications.
* In ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'''s campaign, the Night Elves begin as a one-gender race, until the male Druids, who have apparently been hibernating for a long, long time, awaken.
** Even in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', there are many more female Night Elves than male. This is probably a RuleOfSexy choice by Blizzard and the players, and the ({{Hand Wave}}d) reason for this is probably that many males are still trapped within the Emerald Dream. If players are ever allowed to visit the Emerald Dream, one can bet that there will be plenty of male Night Elves running around.
* In the MMORPG ''[[VideoGame/TricksterOnline Trickster]]'', Cats, rabbits, foxes, and sheep are female, raccoons, dragons, lions, and bulls (well, duh) are male. Less so than most examples in that all the characters [[LittleBitBeastly are really humans with costumes consisting of a headband and a tail]].
* In ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'', several of the playable races can only be male. This has an in-game justification of the females of certain races being deliberately sheltered and do not go adventuring. The real reason was technical; there was not enough room on one CD for all the sprites required to have females for all the races.
* The Kremlings of ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' were like this for a long time, with only males depicted (there is a throwaway reference to a wife for K. Rool in the [[VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry3DixieKongsDoubleTrouble third game]], however, as well as Chunky's verse in the DK Rap in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' boasting that he "can make a Kremling cry out for mommy"). It took them until ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongBarrelBlast'' to finally introduce female Kremlings to the series.
* Only male Grendels and either male (in ''2'') or female (in ''3'') Ettins occur without player intervention (or breeding, once you have both genders) in the ''VideoGame/{{Creatures}}'' games.
* Neireids in ''VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'' are all female, and reproduce with Human (and possibly Sepp, who can breed with humans) males, producing neireid offspring. All the Redflanks that appear in the game are males and all the Sky-people females, but in the case of the Redflanks it's mentioned by Grunzford that the Redflank females died out awhile ago, which is why there are fewer and fewer Redflank as time goes on, as well as why the current population always appears to be older.
* ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'': The [[CatGirl Catgirls]] for Fanservice purposes. [[{{WMG/Darkstalkers}} Or are they....]]
* Archers from ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' were always female and created by their WorldTree until the [[VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice third game]], but the males were referred to as "rangers" instead. Then there are the succubi and catgirls. Since each class is gender-specific, there are duplicate [[SpearCounterpart male]] and [[DistaffCounterpart female]] counterparts of most classes. Since the "monster" classes are all gender-specific, as well, but monsters are, through Mediators, capable of marrying and even producing offspring, it's safe to assume that GenderEqualsBreed.
* ''Every'' race except Poms in ''VideoGame/NeoSteam''. Even the ''Humans''. Humans are all male, with a female counterpart race in Taxn Humans. Lupine and Tarune are all male, with an all-female counterpart race in the Lyell. Elves are just plain all female, with no male counterpart. They're not actually stated to be all male or all female, but those are the only options available to {{PC}}s, and we don't see any {{NPC}}s contrary to this pattern, either.
* You rescue eighty dragons in ''Franchise/SpyroTheDragon'', but every single one is male and female dragons are never mentioned. Averted in the third game, which features female baby dragons, which means that the female dragons were off laying their eggs in solitude -- [[FridgeBrilliance Gnasty missed them completely]].
* The Valkyries in ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank'' are a female only race due to a long emigration from their home planet. It took them hundreds or thousands of years, and all the men were killed for failing to stop and ask for directions.
* The Kaka clan of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' are at least close to being a [[spoiler:genetically engineered]] one-gender race that reproduce via parthenogenesis. Kaka males are mentioned as being incredibly rare, and none are seen in game.
* In ''Monster Girl Quest'', all the monsters are female, and survive by raping human males. Early on, we find out that this isn't their fault: The humans' goddess has forbidden sexual intercourse with monsters. Again, they're all female, so it's just a slow form of genocide.
** This goes deeper than genetics to the spiritual "essence of monsterhood"; even artificial and spontaneously generated species are all female, and the rare male children of monsters are genetically human. This eventually gets explained: the goddess who created the first monsters wanted to force some degree of coexistence with humanity as a way of balancing the energies maintaining creation. At other time periods it's worked out.
* There is no gender in ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}''. Any two individuals of a species can reproduce together, and in some races all members have female traits (all chickens lay eggs and all cows give milk).
* In ''VideoGame/TitanQuest'', all the various races of beastmen and demons are monogendered. The only possible exception is given by the always masked Dune Raiders: one of their heroes has a feminine name, though she's otherwise identical to the male ones.
* One researcher in ''VideoGame/EverQuestII'' spent his life carefully studying Orcs, lampshading the fact that female orcs are never seen. He theorizes that they are either indistinguishable from any other orcs, or are so rare that they're only used for breeding and never see the light of day.
* In the ''VideoGame/{{X}}-Universe'' series the [[ProudMerchantRace Teladi]] ''do'' have males, but they nearly all still live on the homeworld because the species discovered early in their space age that unfertilized eggs would always hatch females, and their [[LostColony homeworld was cut off]] from the PortalNetwork for 600 years. Even someone who deals with Teladi regularly will likely never meet a male, so this trope is the public perception.
* ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'': Because Cryptic never bothered to design female Gorn, Letheans, or Nausicaans, they're one-gendered from a gameplay standpoint. This is a rather major pet peeve for the KDF fanbase.
* The Elsen, the race which make up most of the generic NPC characters in ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}'', are all male, and confirmed by WordOfGod to be unable to reproduce, [[FridgeBrilliance somewhat justifying the fact that they're all]] [[NervousWreck Nervous Wrecks.]]
* The Chua of ''Videogame/{{Wildstar}}'' are the only race without any gender options. According to WordOfGod, the Chua do indeed have two genders but both look identical either way.
* No female dwarves exist anywhere in ''VideoGame/TheLordOfTheRingsOnline''. Not even the player can become one.
* Nor do they exist in the online collectible trading card game "Hex: Shards of Fate". It is explained that when a dwarf dies, they crumble into a pile of pebbles which are then used to make more dwarves. Also, the Vennen (a race of spider people) are all male and reproduce by capturing other races, (especially their sworn enemies the Orcs) tying them up in giant spiderwebs, and using them as incubation slaves.
* In ''A Hint of a Tint'' all of the species who inhabit the Sanctuary are all-female. Breeding is accomplished with the use of male "Tailless" (i.e., humans), who inevitably die after several days due to their inability to drink the local water.
* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'':
** The Definians are an all-female species that feature a lot of cybernetics and serve as spies for the Ganglion coalition. They rely on cloning to reproduce.
** The Orpheans are all referred to as males despite having no concept of gender, and since they reproduce asexually, it's made clear there are no females... at first. A spontaneous mutation on Mira suddenly causes female Orpheans to start appearing, which confuses the hell out of the entire species.
* ''VideoGame/EverOasis'' has two: The Drauk are a ProudWarriorRace of [[TheAmazon all-female]] LizardFolk, and the Serkah are a laid-back mining race of ''scorpion'' men. The Drauk being lizards makes sense given the RealLife all-female lizard species.
* ''Breeding Season'' (an H game) treats all monster species as this, to the point that, for example, male CatFolk or female werewolves are considered mutant strains. The sole exceptions are elves and humans (elves coming in male or female versions, and humans being NPC's).

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* For a very long time, the webcomic ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'' left it apparent that all of the robots (whose enormous population forms a major part of the cast) were considered male by default. Only in strip ''[[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1500/fc01403.htm # 1,403]]'' does the question finally come up. Disappointingly, the explanation is as stereotypical as it is silly: the robots determine themselves to be male or female based on how much ''talking'' they do.
* The Uryuoms in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' don't normally have genders, per se; any two Uryuoms can [[BizarreAlienBiology form an egg]] together, and they can use DNA from ''any'' living species to fertilize it, including {{Half Human Hybrid}}s of course (surprisingly, they ''aren't'' TheVirus, being relatively benign and somewhat whimsical). Those living on worlds where gendered species are dominant will generally adapt to the local customs; on Earth, they generally choose their own gender at some point, though some have one chosen for them by their parents.
* ''WebComic/VampireCheerleaders'': There are no females among the mothmen, which was part of the reason they chose Stephanie to be their new Queen and [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/the_death_of_stephanie_kane abducted her.]] The main reason, however, was because they'd been hunted [[DyingRace almost to the point of extinction]], by the Reptilians. So [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/sisters_reunion they needed her]] [[OnlyYouCanRepopulateMyRace to repopulate]] [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/too_many_jars their species.]]
* In ''Webcomic/{{Angels 2200}}'', the ''Humans'' have become (almost) entirely female after a mysterious plague wipes out 99.5% of all males on Earth. The few surviving men are carefully protected to ensure the survival of the species.One of the major questions of the series is whether this affected the colonies as well, as it occurred during a major insurrection (and may have been a caused by a biological weapon).
* ''Webcomic/MSFHigh'' has the Legion, who are a race of Green Skinned Space Babes, who reproduce by converting other races into Legion. They used to be similar to the Borg, but now they act nicely, and retain free will. They're still a bit love-crazy, though.
* ''Webcomic/NotSoDistant''[='s=] Albategna (of which the main character Sadachbia is one) are hermaphroditic. In english the pronoun "he" is used to refer to Sadachbia simply as a default, because "it" would be rude and English hasn't used the pronoun "ou" since the 13th century.
* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'': Carbo-silicate amorphs are, for all intents and purposes, a one gender race, and their reproduction process is explained in some detail in the comic, but is basically an interesting example of how parthenogenesis could produce offspring which differ from the parent. Technically they don't have a gender at all; Sergeant Schlock is referred to as "he", but Schlock is kind of an odd duck, in that he is A) actually kind of violent, and B) not the result of normal amorph reproduction, but the result of a critical failure in the process of amorph-to-amorph combat.
* The Elves of ''Webcomic/FetchQuestSagaOfTheTwelveArtifacts'' are in danger of becoming this, especially with factors both genetic and historical.
* ''Webcomic/{{Bardsworth}}'': The faeries are all female and the demons all male. New faeries are born by combining magic and a [[http://www.bardsworth.com/archive.php?p=186 tree]]
* ''{{Webcomic/Erfworld}}'': Not surprisingly, [[Series/CharliesAngels Charlie's Archons]] are an all female species. As this world lacks childbirth (or children), and sex appears completely disconnected from procreation, a number of races we've encountered might be all male (or possibly female for some elf variants); we're ''sure'' about the archons.
** If you count unit classifications as racially distinct (this world runs on tabletop strategy physics), there are known all female-vampire subraces, although there are also regular female vampires.
* The Phoenix A species of ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' technically [[http://www.missmab.com/Demo/HG07.php do not have a gender]] but appear (and refer to themselves) as female, and they don't reproduce conventionally since there are always a certain amount of them at any given time, and their method of "reproduction" is to essentially [[{{Reincarnation}} reincarnate]].
* Despite the fact that the only two to appear to far take on the appearance of a man and woman in order to blend in on Earth, the Fiah in ''Webcomic/TheEnd'' are revealed to all be of a single sex which reproduces by laying eggs parthenogenically.
* Faeries in ''TheWolfAtWestonCourt'' are all female.

[[folder: Web Original]]
* {{Website/Neopets}} has numerous types of faeries with different elements and alignments, all of which are all female. No explanation is ever given.
** And apparently if you try to get into the contests or "Neopian Times" (weekly site newspaper) with a story about a male faerie, it will get rejected solely because of that - the staff doesn't seem to want to endorse any mention of male faeries at all.
* In ''FanFic/TheReturn'' Succubae are all [[{{Hermaphrodite}} female]] [[ViralTransformation regardless of what gender they were as a human]].
* The Fairies of the ''Literature/NottingCove'' series are all female.

[[folder: Western Animation]]
* While not a concrete example, female {{Transformers}} are exceedingly rare. In fact, in some continuities, they don't exist at all. Why a mechanical race even has genders is a frequently-debated topic, as are... how to put this delicately?... [[SlashFic other questions related to gender functions]].
** In the Generation One cartoon, the Transformers were built as civilian and military hardware by the Quintessons for sale to other species. Though the Quints themselves are a one-gender race, they know and understand genders and built their products to appeal to their clients. Another thing to note is that for the longest time there were only female Autobots, the civilian line. Female Decepticons (the military line) were unheard of, and we only began seeing female villains in the sequel series ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' (Blackarachnia) and ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'' (Strika). Both of whom might have been Autobots or their descendants: Blackarachnia was a reprogrammed Maximal (Autobot descendant), and Strika is a revived spark, of unknown original side.
** The idea of Transformers being a genderless race seems to have been thrown for a loop by the new [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Aligned_continuity_family Aligned]] continuity introduced by Hasbro; in which, one of the [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Thirteen_original_Transformers Thirteen Original Transformers,]] Solus Prime, is explicitly revealed to have been female (and thus the first female of their race).
* Similarly, ''TheSmurfs'' do have some females... three in fact, but at least two of them weren't "natural" members of their species but rather the results of Gargamel creating golem-like beings to infiltrate the Smurfs, and Papa Smurf subsequently making them "real". Smurfs appear to reproduce by [[DeliveryStork stork]].
** Smurfette was made by Gargamel as a Femme Fatale. Sassette was made by the three male smurflings [[spoiler:(themselves originally adults)]] wanting to make a companion for Smurfette after she complained about being 'the only girl'. [[spoiler:The kids ''did'' use Gargamel's spell. Which they stole.]]
* The Pixies from ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' are a female-only race. They don't need males since they are created by a magical tree in their village. Amore (the pixie of love) got really sad when this was pointed out to her by Jolly. Digit actually makes a few references to male relatives, but no male pixies are ever seen in the show. To make things more confusing, Livy and Jolly are said to be cousins, which makes no sense if pixies just come into existence.
** This is made more confusing by the presence of male pixies in their SpinOff, though it's a different canon. It is also heavily implied that they reproduce...the old-fashioned way...since pixies are shown to have families, including parents, though it also possible that they are only structured into families.
** Male fairies are never seen or mentioned, indicating that they can't be fairies. Although, with EarlyInstallmentWeirdness, some male background characters are shown to be able to cast spells in the first season.
*** It is implied that paladins serve as some male equivalent to the fairies, especially Paladium (who even had wings), but this is never fully confirmed. Likewise, wizards (such as Valtor and the Wizards of the Black Circle) are heavily implied to serve as a male equivalent to witches, but this also never explained.
* ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' actually made ''more'' sense without the "big brother ponies," when the ponies appeared to be a one-gender race that reproduces via parthenogenesis, resulting in babies physically identical to their mothers. Instead, this seems to be only the case for unicorns and pegasi, as all the males seen in that episode are Earth ponies.
** According to one of the comics, little ponies reproduce by looking in a MagicMirror and wishing for a baby, hence the identical babies. The real question is, where did the babies without an adult counterpart come from? The "old way," maybe?
** Not surprisingly, when Creator/LaurenFaust (who watched the older cartoons growing up) came on board for ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', she promptly made sure to avert this trope - Equestrian ponies come in both genders and reproduce the way Earth horses do, no ifs, ands, or magic mirrors.
* The Amazonians from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', who ousted their male population under the compulsion of the mysterious Femputer. The other men died from [[OutWithABang crushed pelvises from Snu-Snu]].
* The rolling stock from ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine''. Passenger cars such as Annie and Clarabel, Henrietta, and Old Slow Coach are always female, while freight cars such as the Troublesome Trucks, the Spiteful Brakevan, Hector the hopper car, and Rocky the repair crane are always male.
* ''Star Wars: Droids: The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO'' just ''might'' have ''one'' female droid among the entire cast. The droid is pink, but the series consistently averted the PinkMeansFeminine rule. If the droid isn't female, then all robots in this cartoon are male.
* Subverted with [[WesternAnimation/InvaderZim the Irkens]]. They appear to be a race of generic ant-like aliens, but there are a few with distinctly feminine TertiarySexualCharacteristics (long eyelashes, curly antennae). The Irken's actual existence and sentience is tied to their PAK so presumably the meat-puppet they decide to use for a body is their choice.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse:'' WordOfGod [[http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/2e4gmx/i_am_rebecca_sugar_creator_of_steven_universe_and/cjw8e1p confirms]] that Gems have NoBiologicalSex, though all of them appear female and use "she/her" pronouns. The only exception is [[TagalongKid Steven]], who's a HalfHumanHybrid. The creator also states that to most Gems, his mother having a child with a human is "unnatural." "On the Run" reveals that [[spoiler:Gems are grown/"made", and that they just pop out of the ground after forming]].\\
The show's supervising director Ian JQ went so far as to confirm this in a Tumblr post by ''specifically'' [[http://ianjq.tumblr.com/post/113794156834/i-know-that-the-gems-are-sexless-agendered-etc linking to this TV Tropes page]] as a reference, citing the Namekians from ''Dragon Ball'' as another example.
* The Gnomes in ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' are all male, at least in their first appearance. They apparently are supposed to have a single female "queen" which the entire tribe is married to and is presumably the mother of the younger generation, as father-son pairs of gnomes exist, but this seems to usually be a kidnapped human woman or girl. However, a single gnome that appears to be female briefly appears (with no dialogue or plot significance) in "The Last Mabelcorn".
* All of the talking anthropomorphic dogs in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' appear to be male.
** And can even [[spoiler: interbreed with human women, which oddly enough, can result in fully-human offspring.]]
** However, after sixteen seasons, this is finally subverted in "[[Recap/FamilyGuyS16E10BoyDogMeetsGirlDog Boy (Dog) Meets Girl (Dog)]]", where Ellie is introduced as the first female talking dog.
* All the evil races is ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'' seem to be like that; Carpies, Trolls and Ogres. If there are female Ogres, for example, are never on screen. Troggles (Lady Bane's dog-like minions) were apparently male, yet during the Wedding Episode in which she and Toady were going to marry (due to a LovePotion), Troggles are shown in striper outfit dancing for the Ogres, so… they probably are all female.

* The Teiidae family of whiptail lizards includes many species that are either all-female or nearly so. This is made due to parthenogenesis induced by sexual stimulation. Yep, [[GirlOnGirlIsHot hot girl on girl action]] producing babies. How wicked can nature ''not'' be?
** There are also lizard species that require sperm to reproduce, so they seduce males of other species.
* The Brahminy blind snake is the only all-female snake species, reproducing by parthenogenesis. It's also known as the flowerpot snake as it has been accidentally introduced to many areas where it's not native in the soil of imported plants. Being parthenogenetic means it's quickly able to establish itself in new places.
* There are some species of fish, such as the Amazon Molly Fish, that are only female, reproducing solely with the males of another certain species (one which has both males and females). These species work this way because either the act or the presence of sperm will stimulate egg production. Genetically, the offspring are the mother's.
* There is a [[https://web.archive.org/web/20101018022453/http://eobasileus.blogspot.com/2008/03/male-chauvinist-minnows-form-all-male.html species of all male fish.]]
* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolbachia wolbachia]] bacteria (right now confined to arthropods) [[{{Gendercide}} kills all mature males]], [[GenderBender turns all other males female]] and allows females to have virgin births. Many species now have it incorporated into their sex-determination system pretty much permanently.
* The barramundi is a species of fish where all start as male and slowly change to female throughout their lifecycle (resulting in the vast, vast majority of large fish being female).
** The clown fish essentially does the opposite. Fish are either sexually immature males, mature males or females with one mature male and one female living in a given population of clown fish. When a female dies, the mature male becomes the female and an immature male becomes the mature male. This means that by the time Nemo met his father in WesternAnimation/FindingNemo, he would have actually been his mother.
* Aphids reproduce mainly by parthenogenesis, and they are indeed [[http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/911/are-aphids-born-pregnant born pregnant.]] Some aphids do have males and sexually reproducing females at certain times, such as in the fall, so that they can produce eggs that can survive through the winter, but for the most part aphids are a one-gender race.
* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marmorkrebs Marmorkrebs,]] or marbled crayfish, is an all-female crayfish that reproduces through parthenogenesis. It is a captive, mutated form of the slough crayfish, ''Procambarus fallax''. The slough crayfish is an aversion, since it has both males and females.
* While there are female bees and male bees (drones), as a general rule the bees you'll see are female. Only the queen reproduces in a beehive, and she can choose whether to make sterile female workers (diploid), another queen (diploid individuals fed royal jelly for thirty days), or a drone. Drones are haploid, meaning they were not fertilized, and their sole purpose is to mate with the queen to give her a lifetime's supply of sperm. Once they mate, they are cast out of the hive and die, or die thanks to their genitals being ripped out of them after intercourse.
* ''Mycocepurus smithii,'' a species of ant, is entirely female, reproducing asexually.
* While anglerfish have both males and females, in some species the males attach to females and fuse with them until the male is little more than a lump of flesh on the female used to fertilize eggs.
* Some species of rotifers are apparently 100% female, though it's possible that the males (which tend to be a lot smaller) just haven't been seen yet. Even rotifers that are capable of producing male offspring usually do so only if the puddle they're living in starts to freeze or dry up, as mating with males allows them to produce durable eggs that can endure harsh conditions. When conditions are good, rotifer populations go all-female, and the thin-shelled parthenogenetic eggs they lay contain clones of themselves.
* Bdelloids. They are all female and lay fully fertilized eggs.
* Subverted with hyenas. Medieval scholars thought spotted hyenas were all male and reproduced [[HomosexualReproduction homosexually]]. This probably happened because females have enlarged clitorises that [[LadyLooksLikeADude look like penises]].
* Triggerfish. Males are never born. Instead the biggest, baddest, strongest female undergoes a sex change to male.
* Snails, slugs and worms are all hermaphrodites; they do mate with others in order to reproduce but only one of the two can lay eggs.
* Female Indian stick insects reproduce asexually. Though males do exist, they are extremely rare.
* Tortoiseshell and calico cats are almost exclusively female, due to the requirement of two X chromosomes to make the orange and black coat combo. While males do exist, they are very rare, usually sterile, and are either chimeras (result of two eggs fusing together) or XXY males.
