This trope has been re-defined. I don't know whether this example is valid for the new definition. It may need rewording to show how it fits the new definition. If it's valid, please restore it here and on the trope page.

Removed this because it doesn't fit the trope. Pink Bishoujo Ghetto (renamed to Improbably Female Cast) is about fiction with almost no male characters despite a setting where that makes no sense. This example is clearly not that.

  • Pink Bishoujo Ghetto: In the game's history, there has been exactly one female captain, while the other nine were male, and all current captains are men. (The ratio moves up to 2:9 if you count the time that Franziska filled in for Bradley, but she was never officially listed as the captain — unlike when Vash became the captain after Kurt's departure as a Red Herring to keep L's eventual promotion a surprise — and no one really expected for a minute that Bradley was dead.) Female to male first mates are 6:5. From Quartermasters on, the ratio gets more and more amenable to gender equality. (In a reversal, however, the ratio of female to male mods is, historically and currently, skewed towards the female end — but LJRP is populated mostly by women anyway.)
