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.

* Miriam Webster of LetsPlay/SomethingAwfulDungeonsAndDragons is played by the male [[LetsPlay/MediBot Medibot]]. It's never really brought up, and just considered normal.

** 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.

* In {{Vindictus}} the character classes are canonically single individuals, and so they're gender-locked. Anyone playing a [=DPSer=] ''will'' be a guy, and anyone playing a [[RedMage mage]] or tank ''will'' be a girl, (Lann, Evie and Fiona, respectively), regardless of real-life gender. Also, when the archer and MightyGlacier (Kai and Karok) are released, both of them will be guys.

* Prevalent in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'', as in 'Applies to almost every single person on the board', prevalent. Almost everybody has characters of both sex. Some handlers are better known for their characters of the opposing sex than of their own, though not everybody can pull this effectively. It shows.
