** Giselle Gewelle is a young woman who actually uses ''boku''. She is accused by Yumichika of being a CreepyCrossdresser. While she doesn't outright confirm or deny it, she identifies as female, and is [[BerserkButton VERY angry]] with Yumichika for pointing it out. (Plus, [[spoiler: Mayuri]] refers to Giselle as female, and [[GenreSavvy he]] ''should'' notice something going on).

A Bokukko is a female character who uses male pronouns. This term arises from the [[JapanesePronouns Japanese Pronoun]] ''boku'', primarily used by boys and young men, and "ko", a feminine suffix. [[TheLadette Extreme]] tomboys may prefer the pronoun ''ore'', normally used by HotBlooded young men. (This, incidentally, is an example of how [[RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic Japanese writing differs from Japanese speech]]; although feminine speech patterns have by and large become more "neutral" over the years, it would still be quite rare for a woman to refer to herself with a masculine pronoun.)

* Elh from ''{{Solatorobo}}''. Her companions actually mistake her for a boy initially, which doesn't make as much sense in the translated version of the game, due to the lack of Japanese pronouns.

* ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear GX'' introduces Elfnein and Carol. Elfnein being a homunculus with NoBiologicalSex, but is treated as a girl by the entire cast, she is this trope because of her ''boku''. Carol, who is heavily hinted to be the original inspiration of her creation Elfnein, uses the tough and more masculine ''ore'', fitting to her status as the determined BigBad and WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds, even though she's very feminine.

** On a historical note, while Ore Onna characters exist prominently in some anime and manga, this trope is OlderThanTheyThink: ''Ore'' was also actually used by women until [[JidaiGeki late Edo period]]. It is still found in some dialects, mainly [[FarmersDaughter rural women in Tohoku areas]].
