* Testament of ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'', who, in addition to his long black hair and androgynous face, has [[VillainousCrossdresser an outfit consisting of a man-bra and a skirt that shows a decent amount of leg]]. And that's not going anywhere near [[DudeLooksLikeALady Bridget]]. There's also [[FairCop Ky]] WHOSE 50 YEARS OLD!!!.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': [[{{Ninja}} Kaze]], [[BattleButler Jakob]], and ''especially'' [[BadassBookworm Leo]] and [[ArcherArchetype Takumi]] all have soft, pretty features. Leo's son Forrest takes it to a [[DudeLooksLikeALady whole other level.]]

Leo's son Forrest takes it to a [[DudeLooksLikeALady whole other level.]]]] Azura's son, Shigure, qualifies as well, and his finer features are exaggerated further in his Cipher cards.
** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia]]'' has several, some of which are due to [[AdaptationalAttractiveness the art having improved]] from the original. Tobin and Kliff both have soft, pretty faces in the remake, and are fairly slender to boot. Luthier and Leon are the [[LongHairedPrettyBoy long-haired]] variety; Leon is said to have [[TheDandy a strict routine]] to keep himself looking nice, and it's accentuated by the fact that [[CampGay he]] appears to be wearing [[GuyLiner eyeshadow]] and lip gloss.

* [[{{Kitsune}} Kyubi]] from ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' is a long-haired, somewhat androgynous pretty boy in his human form. By youkai standards, he's handsome in his normal form, too.



* Victor Nikiforov and Yuri Plisetski in ''Anime/YuriOnIce''.

* Victor Nikiforov and Yuri "Yurio" Plisetski in ''Anime/YuriOnIce''.''Anime/YuriOnIce''. Even Yuri Katsuki himself becomes one when [[HeCleansUpNicely he takes off his glasses and combs his hair]], although he isn't ugly before, either.

** Raiden in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2''. He was designed as an androgynous alluring blank slate for the player to project themselves onto since Japanese fans wanted a pretty boy to play as. There's a scene where another character [[spoiler:makes a grab for his groin, and is surprised to find he is male]]. And you have to play as him naked. No, we are not making that up. He was widely reviled for this by the FanDumb, among [[ReplacementScrappy other reasons]]. Eventually, Raiden's own game, ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'', [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/thegamingfamily/images/d/db/641726-metal-gear-rising-revengeance-playstation-3-screenshot-raiden.jpg buffed him up]] to the extreme.

A popular Asian character type, the ''bishōnen'', or "beautiful boy", is a male character that possesses [[AmbiguousGender androgynous]] or "feminine" physical traits. He is usually tall, slender with almost no fat and little to no muscle, and [[PermaShave no body or facial hair]]. Large, expressive eyes are almost a given, though TsurimeEyes are also common in more serious examples. In anime, many ''bishōnen'' have [[CrossDressingVoices female voice actors]] (most comedically, [[Characters/NarutoNarutoUzumaki Naruto Uzumaki]]), although those that don't get [[VocalDissonance startlingly deep]], sexy voices instead. [[DudeLooksLikeALady It is not uncommon for those at the more feminine end to be mistaken for women by other characters]], or for savvier examples of the type to take advantage of such an assumption.

* {{Lampshaded}} in ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic:'' upon meeting [[PrincelyYoungMan Titus Alexius]], [[AdorablyPrecociousChild Aladdin]] ignores his outstretched hand and instead starts to fondle his chest. He then calmly explains that, between his soft voice and butt, he assumed that Titus had to actually be a girl. Unfortunately, it turns out that Titus' feminine appearance is actually his BerserkButton, likely because [[spoiler:[[it [[CloningBlues reminds him]] that's he's an OppositeSexClone of Scheherazade]].
