* Despite the player base being predominantly male, recent statistics showed that over 60% of the characters in ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline2'' were female. While there are stat differences between male and female characters, it's extremely minor, meaning it's probably done mostly for the sake of visual appeal (Especially considering how much freedom you have in designing your character's physical appearance).

Added DiffLines:

** Noted AH fan and fanfiction author KhaosOmega also prefers to play as female characters, but in his case it's more for the high heels since female characters are usually the only ones who can wear them in-game.

* Almost the point in the Web Manga and Anime ''Manga/RecoveryOfAnMMOJunkie'', as both of the main two characters are playing opposite genders in the game.

A crossplayer usually ''isn't'' deceptive about their sex - many are quite up-front about their real life sex--and simply prefer avatars of the opposing sex for [[ThirdPersonSeductress aesthetic reasons]], like seeing the {{Impossibly Cool|Clothes}} female version of [[ChainmailBikini armor models]]. A common defense of crossplay is "If I have to look at an ass all day, I'd prefer a nice one" when a [[ThirdPersonShooter Third-Person]] camera is involved. Less frequently, it's for the sake of [[TheRoleplayer role-play]].

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has the "Reincarnation" spell, which can sometimes result in a sex change in addition to the usual species change (depending on the edition and GM), leading to this trope occurring at random.

** Some Nexon-produced games, such as ''DungeonFighterOnline'' and ''VideoGame/{{Vindictus}}'', are also genderlocked. DFO is starting to move away from this, however, with the Female Gunner and recently the Male Fighter, although each gender still has significantly different playstyles in most cases.

* [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] and [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', where all [[CrossPlayer Cross Players]] are forcibly returned to their biological sexes when the plot kicks in. It gets explained [[AllThereInTheManual in the novels]] that it was done because of research indicating that too much time crossplaying in a Full Immersion Virtual Reality game can lead to psychological problems relating to mind and body dissonance. This restriction carries over to the majority of games created using The Seed; however, it also notes that because FIVR games determine gender from a user's brainwaves, {{Transgender}} players are likely to be read as their chosen gender instead of their birth sex.
