* ''Anime/{{Sekirei}}'': They play with this a little bit in the between-season OVA "Two Gossip Topics". In the first topic, "Sekirei Diagnosis," Homura (whose sex has been kept pretty ambiguous) stands in front of the diagnosis center wondering which direction to take (because there ''are'' male Sekirei such as Shiina). We never see Homura make a choice because the building gets destroyed during an incident inside. The [[RunningGag same thing]] happening at "Sekirei Resort" also saves Homura from having to commit in the second part. But then it gets terribly serious once season two proper starts. [[spoiler:It turns out Homura really ''is'' ambiguous, shifting between the two sexes until being drawn towards one through the attraction to an Ashikabi.]] [[spoiler:That proved to be Minato, his sixth; Homura's powers (including [[GenderBender]]) stabilize upon winging, but because Minato is male, Homura is seen more often as a female going forward.]]

* Tye, the main protagonist of ''Webcomic/NeoKosmos'', is agender, as is their friend Z. Gender was a social construct, and human society no longer exists. Also, the aliens raising them use gender-neutral pronouns.



** The (mostly alien) doctors simply refer to their charges as "human type x" and "human type y"; the humans themselves don't see gender as a thing that means anything to them, and use they/them pronouns. The only exception is Iris, who is fascinated by ancient human culture and who thinks of herself as a girl.

* ''Webcomic/NeoKosmos'' takes place in the distant future, where nearly all of humanity is extinct and the only survivors are raised by aliens with no concept of human ideas of gender; there are several different varieties of AmbiguousGender at play.

The only exception is Iris, who is fascinated by ancient human culture and who thinks of herself as a girl.
** The compies are vaguely-feminine looking LizardFolk, and are implied to either be a OneGenderRace (with that gender not nessesarily being male or female), or simply not to have gender at all. They all use they/them in most situations, but use she and her as terms of endearment with romantic partners.
* ''Webcomic/{{Nebula}}'': The characters are all {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s and are all [[http://ghostfruits.com/post/122728735820 canonically]] non-binary, though some look more masculine or feminine and use gendered pronouns.
* ''Webcomic/PlanetaryMoe'': Earth is androgynous and never gives a straight answer about what gender they are when one of the other characters tries to ask about it. Even their human name (Terry) is confirmed by the author to have been chosen because its unisex, giving no hints either way.

Added DiffLines:

* The Dwarf's gender in ''VideoGame/StardewValley'' seems to have been left up to player interpretation. Though a good chunk of the fandom appears to be guessing that they're male, no pronouns are ever actually used in reference to the Dwarf in-game. Their [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep name]] and [[TheFaceless obscured face]] only adds to the ambiguity. There's also the heavy implication that Dwarves are actually aliens, which means that the Dwarf could probably be [[BizarreAlienBiology just about anything]] in regards to gender.

* TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}} has the Empyreal Lord (basically an archangel) Arshea, whose form "suggests the best traits of both the masculine and feminine" and who the text avoids referring to with any pronoun at all.

* Every {{Toys/Lego}} minifigure pre 90's could technically qualify, ''especially'' when using the default "Yellow smiley face". Though largely averted with the town themes that actually have molded hair and more varying faces.
