* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3669524/3/The-Depths-of-Darkness The Depths of Darkness]]'' a member of Harry's ruling council has him dressed as the Lady of the Southern Lands during the journey to Harry's manor, to deceive rebel factions. The fact that he's surprisingly convincing in this get-up doesn't make it any less uncomfortable for him.

* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'':
** Ryou Aizawa is a six-inch-tall male alien who pilots a female MobileSuitHuman, primarily for the purpose of extorting money from the resident CasanovaWannabe. This results in no end of {{Squick}} for the characters who are aware of his actual identity.
** A rare unintentional example occurs in the case of [[spoiler: Genjirou Shirigami]], when he comes to Youko's school to find out if her secret (she's a vampire) has been exposed. Unfortunately, he requested that Akane magically disguise him, and [[TheGadfly Akane being Akane]], she obliged by making the disguise female.

** It's a RunningGag that, whenever Ranma [[GenderBender turns into a girl]] and dons a PaperThinDisguise (which is often little more than a WigDressAccent or a [[ClarkKenting cheap pair of glasses]],) his rival Ryoga will invariably fall for it, and think of "her" as a very cute girl. Not only that, but both in the anime and manga versions of his introduction, Ryoga expressed his outrage over the fact that [[TransformationRay Jusenkyo]] turned Ranma into a [[AttractiveBentGender beautiful girl]], whereas he [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting was turned into a small black piglet]].
** In order to distract the {{Orochi}}, a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giant]] pervert who loves girls (to look at as much as to eat,) [[GenderBender Ranma]], Ryouga, [[{{Bishonen}} Shinnosuke]], and [[{{Squick}} Shinnosuke's Grandpa]] crossdress (namely, a schoolgirl, a nurse, a policewoman, and a ''bride''.) The funniest part is that Ranma does this ''as a man'' (had he done it as a woman, the Orochi would've made a beeline for her.)

--> '''Alfred:''' 'That would attract too much attention'
--> '''Tim:''' 'These boobs attract too much attention! Did you have to make them so big?'
--> '''Alfred:''' 'They're big enough to give you positive attention, but not enough to be remembered.'
--> '''Tim:''' 'Okay, you put waaaay too much thought into this...'[[labelnote:*]]''Batman'' #626 (2004)''[[/labelnote]]

They simply take the costumes (which, incidentally, are skintight) of two defeated villains and put them on, with no further attempt at disguise, trusting that the presence of a number of BrawnHilda types among Superia's followers will be enough to deflect suspicion.

** A major plot element in the first half of ''Anime/TurnAGundam'', where the protagonist Loran is put into situations where he is forced to crossdress in order to become the Gundam's "alleged" pilot Laura. This is addressed directly in the last episode when one character asks Guin (the man who made everyone think Loran was a woman) why doesn't he just put him in a skirt himself.

* Jack did this a couple of times on ''ThreesCompany''. In one, he thinks the authorities are after him and dresses up as a woman (he claims to be Chrissy) to get past them. In a later episode, he entered a recipe contest as "Grandma Tripper" and dressed the part when he's selected as a finalist.

With the reverence the general Chinese views Mao with, don't expect many to be willing to discuss this rumor, much less confirm it, though.
