* Miss Simian from ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' actually had a woman as her voice actor in season one (Sandra Searles Dickson), but was replaced by a man (Hugo Harold-Harrison) starting in season two.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'', Skeeter, the twin sister of Scooter, is voiced by Howie Mandel (with the same voice he uses for [[BobbysWorld Bobby]] and [[Film/{{Gremlins}} Gizmo]]). More conventionally, Russi Taylor (better known as the modern voice of Minnie Mouse) voiced Gonzo, and Katie Leigh voiced Rowlf. When a toddler version of Janice appeared in one episode, Dave Coulier did her voice (very much like Richard Hunt performing the adult Janice.)

** In the case of Tina, this was almost an aversion, given that her character - still voiced by Dan Mintz - was originally envisioned as a boy named Daniel.

* Creator/TsubasaYonaga is one of the very few male seiyuu whose character in the English dub track is voiced by a female, such as Shuu Kannogi from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Nemu Takada from ''Manga/BlueExorcist'', Nova from ''VideoGame/ArcanaFamiglia'' and Tony from ''TigerAndBunny'', the first two are voiced by Creator/BrianneSiddall in the English track, the third is voiced by Kara Greenberg, and the last is voiced by Creator/LauraBailey.

* Averted in both the English and Mexican dubs for ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': Shinji is played by Spike Spencer and Victor Ugarte, respectively.
** The original dub played this straight: see below.

* Despite being a teenager, [[TheGhost Satoshi]] from ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' is voiced by a woman. Keiichi is the same age as him and averts this trope.
* Wigglytuff is voiced by a voice actress in the English version of the ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers'' animated specials.



* Tails, Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog's sidekick, has been voiced by a young boy in most of his earlier appearances... and as of ''Anime/SonicX'' and ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'', he has been voiced by women to avoid any further voice changes (Tails has had a '''lot''' over the years), and they took it well. Now, his voice is done by Creator/KateHiggins as of ''VideoGame/SonicColors'', which has been generally been received as more boy-ish and an improvement over the last voice actor.

** Tails is also voiced by a woman in Japanese.
* Slippy from ''VideoGame/StarFox'' was voiced by a female in ''VideoGame/StarFox64'', the first game in the series that had voice acting. Not only did that voice help his scrappiness, it also caused quite a few people to think that he ''is'' female, or at least make jokes about it.
** Female voice actress Kyoko Tonguu voiced him in all of the Japanese versions, though, and her cutsey voice for him actually made him popular in Japan.

* Link is voiced by a woman whenever he's under 12 years old. Before ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' it was Fujiko Takimoto and now it's Sachi Matsumoto. Adult Link is always voiced by males. Of course "voiced" is a bit of a stretch, since Link doesn't actually talk beyond [[VoiceGrunting a few grunts]] and "Come On!".

** That same voice actress also voiced one of the male characters in ''VideoGame/EvilZone'' on the PS1. She also voiced pretty much every female character, but considering the game was from the late 90s, you probably could have guessed that on your own.

* Creator/RinaSato was the voice of ten-year-old Welshman Negi Springfield in ''MahouSenseiNegima''. (In an interesting twist, Negi's voice in the North American dub is provided by [[Creator/GregAyres an adult man]] who manages to sound convincingly like a ten-year-old boy.)
