  • Meanwhile, in Final Fantasy Tactics, every character belonged to a sign on the Western Zodiac, and compatibilities were determined on a rather complicated wheel depending on both the zodiac sign and gender.

The zodiac signs are portrayed as zodiac signs, not powers of any sort.

How about in The Wheel of Time (literature), where the One Power is divided into five: Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Spirit, with men generally being stronger in Earth and Fire, and women in Air and Water. The combination of various threads of Power are the basis of the series' 'magic'..? I'd add it myself but I got worried I'd break one of the rules...

To be clear, is it just that Women and Men are better in areas alone. If so, that's not this trope.

It's about what elements beat what. The name itself is pretty much what the whole trope is about. If there's an elemental chart of what beats what, then that should be posted. The fact that they have Elements in general, or that they're divvied up into specific Sexes in another thing altogether. I'm not sure if the Sex-Based powers has an actual trope, though.

Can we add a shorter redirect? Like maybe "Elemental RPS" or "Elemental Weakness"?
