Tropes That Get the Secondary Sexual Characteristics of Animals Wrong
No Real Life examples, please. Please only list fictional examples that aren't listed in any of the tropes listed here. Anything that fits in any of the tropes listed should be listed in that trope.
- Starting in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, the Pokémon series had introduced secondary sexual characteristics for certain Pokémon. Some, like the Frillish family and possibly the Gible family, fall into a subtrope, but others, such as Pokémon like Rhydon having larger horns when male, female Pikachu having heart-shaped tails, or female Combee having a red mark on one of their heads, are just this trope.
