These tags are also occasionally used when dealing with customizable characters in computer games. In addition, tags like this are used in spreadsheet programs to denote what sheet the cell in question is on if it's not on the same sheet as the cell you're typing in. [[http://www.catb.org/jargon/html/B/bang-path.html Bang paths]] were used in early e-mail to specify a UUCP route to a given user, and they're still part of the return path in {{Usenet}}.

The practice is starting to seep out from fanfiction, though, and can also be used when talking about similar things in the source material, such as, for example, Future!Hiro, Vamp!Willow, or Brainwashed!Undead!Starscream (''[[TransformersEnergon Energon]]''!Starscream for short). It's also used in a more tongue-in-cheek manner to categorize examples of the MarySue in a quick, concise form.

** For Ranma of ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'', it usually indicates a story where he accepts and embraces his girl-side, often to the extent of abandoning being male altogether.

!!Tropers have a tendency to use these in regards to describing variations of the same character. This is not allowed here on this wiki. We're making pages for the general public, not for ourselves. If you see them on a page, either change them to something else or remove them altogether. If the page in question is locked, [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=gsjp7dldjh2dwdelcha2hu17 use this thread to request an edit]].

** Multiple {{Unsettling Gender Reveal}}s happened to ''{{Gundam 00}}'' fandom when the beautiful Tieria was revealed to have a masculine voice. Even now, people call for 'female!Tieria' or the more explicit 'Tiera-with-girl-parts'.

These tags are concatenated and prepended to a character name, separated by exclamation marks: for example, ''Angry!Uber!Harry.'' For those wondering, this convention [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UUCP#Mail_routing stems from UUCP]], one of the earliest forms of email routing.
