** WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck has an orange bill, which is far more the trait of female ducks than drakes like Daffy.

** Likewise, Inferno is a male, but has the alt-mode of a female worker ant. Then again, given his habit of referring to Megatron as "my queen", gender confusion seems to be a pretty inherent part of Inferno's personality.

* In ''WesternAnimation/GrowingUpCreepie'', the main character's adoptive father is a case of this, as her father is a male mosquito who has an entire episode based around the fact that he sucks blood. This is never brought up, despite the show's tendency to throw in random facts about bugs.

* ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfTheGuardiansTheOwlsOfGaHoole'' has a female snowy owl that looks like a male one, because male snowy owls have less spots than female snowy owls. Also, the female owls are smaller than the males, which is the opposite of real life. In most birds of prey the female is much bigger. Perhaps they thought making the sizes accurate would confuse the audience?

* Averted in ''Disney/TheLionKing''. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Early in development]], when the plot and characters were far different, the hyenas were led by a prince named Banagi. Hyenas are extremely matriarchal, where even the highest male is below the lowest female. In the final film the 'leader' of the trio of hyenas is Shenzi, a female. The hyenas in "Be Prepared" all sound male and look masculine, though hyenas are matriarchal and males are incredibly low in the hierarchy. It's possible they simply ''seem'' male due to how androgynous hyena females are.

It's hard not to [[TheWoobie feel sorry]] for RealLife [[LadyLooksLikeADude cows]] when you hear people mistakenly referring to them as him. Confusions like these and others lead to writers having no choice but to make male "cows" with udders, male calico or tortoiseshell cats[[note]]calico and tortoiseshell males do exist, but they either have a genetic defect--XXY chromosomes--and are usually sterile, or are [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chimera_%28genetics%29 chimeras]] or [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosaic_%28genetics%29 mosaics]]; and thus are extremely rare and extremely valuable[[/note]] [[PeacockGirl female "peacocks" with trains]], male kangaroos with pouches, red female cardinals, lionesses with manes, blood-drinking male mosquitoes, and so on. Prehistoric and extinct animals aren't immune; many times you'll see a "female" ''[[PteroSoarer Pteranodon]]'' with a long crest (an exclusively male trait). Barring the theory that perhaps these characters are meant to be {{transgender}}, we have to assume this is pure artistic license.

* ''Tyto Ecology'' features Asian elephants that are all portrayed with tusks, making them all male. The caribou also all have large antlers, despite females having smaller antlers. This is due to gender difference not being implemented in the game yet.
