** Gord and Saburou of [[Anime/DotHackRoots .hack//Roots]] are also cross players though the latter ventures into {{GIRL}} territory due to their insistence they are female. The former is female but plays a male character, though it's not touched upon in the series proper.

* Bert is the only player in ''Literature/SpellsSwordsAndStealth'' that plays as a character of the opposte gender. The end result is a man described as being more likely to stuff SS&S players into trash cans than be one himself playing Wimberly, the pint sized gnomish gadgeteer.

* Just pick ANY MMORPG. Even much more if the game do not have PurelyAestheticGender since you will have to play as that sex for a particular class, but even if they do, it is still extremely common. In fact, in later games (such as ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', WarhammerOnline, etc), most players will assume the new person they meet is a male behind the PC unless you can convince them you are not (either via voice chat or otherwise).

Obviously not the same as a real-life CrossDresser (although the term is used for people of cosplaying as the opposite gender), and also is different from CrossDressingVoices.

* In ''TheGunganCouncil'', many writers, notably those of Phylis, Relen, and Jessan, frequently write the opposite sex. It's more common for women on the site to write males, as well.

* Valkyrie in ''TheGuild'' plays at least two different female characters. Codex makes a half-assed attempt to make fun of him for it, though in her webcam she eventually asks herself why she's making a big deal out of it, probably as acknowledgement of how common a practice it is.

* An update to ''EveOnline'' has actually made it somewhat harder to ID crossplayers (but aided anyone who's a {{GIRL}}) thanks to the introduction of "voice fonts" for the in-game voice chat (TS, Vent, and other voice chat users are out of luck). Even if they don't really work, they should make it harder to tell if it's a guy using a female voice font, or a girl using a female voice font.
--> '''Patchnotes''': Voice fonts have now been added to EVE Voice. This new feature will allow you to alter your voice during chat to increase or lower pitch or to change from male to female voices. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial This is certainly]] [[BlatantLies not going to be abused in any way]].
** The Devs from EveOnline once published some statistics drawn from their account records indicating that both player sexes played characters of either sex equally on average, leading to roughly even character sex distribution. Since the playerbase is still predominately male, the chance that a male character is played by a guy is still quite a bit higher than a female character being played by a girl.
** SecondLife reccently added a similar feature.

* EquestriaChronicles naturally has this because, well, it's based off a ''girl's'' show and most of the players are ''guys.''
