* ''Film/BladeRunner2049'' uses this in a complicated, spoilerific way to ''invert'' this and play it straight at the same time for a double-whammy of plot-twists. Officer K, in his childhood FakeMemories, is played by a boy in flashbacks - [[spoiler: but although the events he's remembering are actually real, they're not ''his'' memories. They're the childhood memories of the woman Ana Stelline, played by Carla Juri.]]

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode where the protagonists put on a pageant for [[YouMeanXmas Hearth's Warming Eve]], all the historical figures are portrayed by the (all-female) main cast. At least one role, Commander Hurricane, is heavily implied to have actually been a stallion, not a mare. And any of the others could have been, even Prince/ess Platinum. This being a very old pageant and one that's performed all over at this time, there were probably male ponies somewhere playing all of the historically female roles as well.
** The book ''The Journal of the Two Sisters'' confirms that Commander Hurricane is indeed the only stallion of the founders.
