* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Whenever Pearl or Garnet wear male outfits (i.e. [[Recap/StevenUniverseS3E8MrGreg tuxedos]] or [[Recap/StevenUniverseS3E12RestaurantWars waiter's uniforms]]), this trope counts. [[FetishFuel That is all.]]

* Shiratori, Kisara's [[UndyingLoyalty servant]] from ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple''. In her [[http://www.mangareader.net/337-23519-17/historys-strongest-disciple-kenichi/chapter-13.html first appearance]] and in every appearance since, she's had a bishonen-esque face and always wore a heavy coat and shirt, showing no hint of her gender. In chapter 489, we get [[http://www.mangareader.net/historys-strongest-disciple-kenichi/489/15 this]], revealing Shiratori's real gender for the first time, Takeda's reactions pretty much showing what the readers had thought this whole time.

* Ryuunosuke Fujinami from ''UruseiYatsura'', Ukyou and [[GenderBender Ranma's]] [[{{Expy}} authorical ancestor]]. Ryuunosuke is a girl, but her father was completely dead-set on having a son that when he discovered he had a daughter, it still didn't stop him from giving her a [[TomboyishName boy's name]] and [[RaisedAsTheOppositeGender raising her as a boy]]. As a result, Ryuunosuke is very masculine-looking, behaves way more manly than most male characters, [[{{Bokukko}} speaks in a very masculine fashion]] and [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer even girls who are aware of her gender swoon]]. Ryuunosuke is not happy about this, but no matter how hard she tries to behave feminine, her father always thwarts her efforts.

** In ''Anime/NegimaSecondSeason'', they swap roles: Setsuna is the YamatoNadeshiko in a luxurious kimono and Konoka is the Bifauxnen and in a [[TheShinsengumi Shinsengumi uniform]]. But nobody makes any comment, because the only other girl around turns out to be [[PsychoLesbian Tsukuyomi]]...

A female character who resembles [[{{Bishonen}} a pretty, androgynous boy]], [[{{Fanservice}} but in a positive way]], usually coupled with an appropriate 'masculine' outfit. Swooned over by [[UnsettlingGenderReveal confused females]] as much as outright SchoolgirlLesbians. Sometimes in the episode they're introduced, they're confused for men until the other characters recognize and treat them as girls. Occasionally, it's also a roundabout way of adding a stereotypically 'male' role to a show that doesn't have (or [[ImprobablyFemaleCast want]]) one. Very often subject to at least one StupidSexyFlanders gag, sometimes even after TheReveal of their true biological sex.

Interestingly, most versions are PrinceCharming types and overwhelmingly [[WholesomeCrossdresser 'good' characters]]. Bifauxnen are, from an artistic standpoint, everything that is positive about masculinity while also not losing anything fundamentally 'woman'. Many characters, in fact, simply heavily associate with traits typically praised in men; the appearance is just another path to that. Most of the time the {{Bifauxnen}} is ''not'' a ButchLesbian, and is [[ChasteHero mostly oblivious]] to reactions they incite.

Bifauxnen, however, do not include trans men, as the latter ''are'' men, and not simply 'mistaken' for men. Usually they can be distinguished by how they identify, such as Takatsuki from ''Manga/WanderingSon''.
