* Lots of ''Film/CarryOn'' films. Usually with cleavage so low and chest hair so thick it verges on terrifying.

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' has this when the party performs a play version of Snow White in Velanik. For some reason, the role of the Evil Queen doesn't go to Pascal or Sophie...but to ''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny Hubert.]]'' Of course he's completely unwilling and a rather stiff actor. The "disguise" part comes in when a man in the crowd recognizes Hubert as [[spoiler: Strahta's top Lieutenant.]] In order to protect his identity, Hubert goes full-bore LargeHam, complete with squeaky feminine voice, and the spectator concludes that no respectable [[spoiler: officer]] would be caught dead crossdressing on stage.

* The DustinHoffman comedy ''Film/{{Tootsie}}''. "Dorothy Michaels" becomes quite the man magnet, in fact. His/her own pursuit of a female costar is kind of complicated.

* An episode of ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' has Autolycus and Salmoneus do this as a WholePlotReference to ''SomeLikeItHot''. Bonus points for featuring Michael Hurst as The Widow Twanky.

* In ''Series/{{Merlin}}'', Gwen disguises Sir Leon as a female courtier to escape Camelot. While it's mildly PlayedForLaughs, we never really get to see the finished disguise.

* One sketch by ''TheTwoRonnies'' has them as stuffy commuters, who arrive at their station and chat about everyday topics, as they change into flamboyant ladies' outfits. The punchline: They're doing it because the station only has a ladies' lavatory.

* In ''DNAngel'', Satoshi disguises himself as a woman in order to distract HandsomeLech Dark during a heist. It works -- he [[HoYay nearly kisses Satoshi]] before he realizes who he's talking to, and at that point Satoshi had already handcuffed him to the wall.

* In one questline in the Storm Peaks of ''WorldOfWarcraft,'' your character gets disguised as a vrykul warrior maiden. This is more than just a disguise, however; if your character is male and has earned the title "Patron", the title automatically changes to "Matron" in every zone where the disguise is in effect.

* In Creator/TerryPratchett's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}'', after Fred and Nobby's DressingAsTheEnemy scheme falls flat, they steal some costumes from a trio of traveling performers: "Gulli, Gulli, and Betti". Nobby gets stuck playing "Betti", an exotic dancer, and his quite homely appearance is explicitly cited in a footnote as being in a heated battle with the AttractiveBentGender trope. [[spoiler: The trope loses. No mean feat in a world that runs on tropes the way [=RoundWorld=] runs on physics]]
** Nobby actually enjoys his experience, to the point where when he goes on patrol to entrap unlicensed thieves targeting [[UnusualEuphemism ladies of negotiable affection]], he insists on playing the bait--even though he's partnered with Angua, who is not only strikingly beautiful but is tough enough to act as her own backup.

** Escaping from prison disguised as a washerwoman is briefly mentioned in three books: In ''Discworld/TheLastContinent'', Rincewind is going through all the standard escape tropes with a GenreSavvy guard, and is disappointed to learn the washerwoman is said guard's mum. In ''Discworld/TheLastHero'', [[ContractualGenreBlindness Contractually Genre Blind]] Evil Harry Dread has a jailer who's described as letting a bearded washerwoman in IncrediblyConspicuousDrag out of the cell without a second thought. And in ''Discworld/RaisingSteam'', reformed conman Moist recalls visiting Quirm in a variety of different disguises, and once as a different sex. A footnote adds that the jailers didn't figure out how he escaped until they realised the laundry never came back.
