* One of the Pokestar film in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' has a Pokemon example. The [[spoiler:Ledian]] which fights you with humans from Timegate Travelers saga is referred as female in script, but her sprite is that of a male.

* In ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai'', the DistantFinale shows that Tamura's first acting role as an adult is in a play where he plays a female character. He was always in his element [[{{crossdressing}} dressed in female clothes]] as a teenager.

* The infamous Japanese live-action commercial for ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' (the one with the rapping) had Link played by a 16-year-old schoolgirl. Due to Link's soft features and slight build, this is actually less jarring than you'd think.

Added DiffLines:

* The lead from ''Film/CatsAndDogs'' is a male puppy played by multiple dogs, both female and male. This isn't uncommon for animal characters, however not much effort was made to disguise this. The puppy noticeably changes sexes between scenes.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'''s last episode before the GrandFinale, the Gaang go and see a play based on the entire series up to that point. In a reference to Peter Pan, they find Aang (the lightly-build, hyperactive twelve-year-old) is played by a petite woman. While Aang (and the rest of the group) is disappointed with the entire portrayal of him, the casting choice is what confuses him the most. On the other hand, Toph (a little blind girl, but BoisterousBruiser and ArrogantKungFuGuy nonetheless) absolutely ''loves'' the fact that her part was played by a giant, muscly man.

* All traditional kabuki theatre, due to a 1629 ban on female actors. This effectively created an entire industry of GenderBender "actresses" (see TheOtherWiki on ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oyama_(Japanese_theatre) onnagatta]]''). Note that when Kabuki first appeared in the early 1600s it was female only, and had females playing male roles. Either way, it's an example.

** There's also Betty, a [[HystericalWoman high-strung]], [[GoodAdulteryBadAdultery cuckolded]], [[EvilMatriarch lady of the house]], who's deliberately played like an over-the-top man in drag a la Creator/MontyPython to show the absurdity of [[VictorianBritain Victorian gender roles]]. In the second act she's played straight by a woman and pretty much realized she'd been forced to play a caricature most of her life.
