* 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.

* It's a RunningGag in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' 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 ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'', the heroes have to go to a Holy City where priestesses are trained and all permanent residents are female. They get involved with the ruler's child who does not want to be a priestess and is in fact male and forced to crossdress by his overbearing mother. At the end it is revealed that the "all-female community" is in fact ''fifty percent male''.

* In the first season of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime, Ash had to disguise himself as a girl to gain access into the Celedon City Gym, as he had offended Erika, the Gym Leader, earlier in the episode. It went on to become a RunningGag OnceASeason.
** If Team Rocket uses a disguise that involves a female and a male role, James will almost always dress as the female. ([[AttractiveBentGender And very lovely he looks too.]]) Logically, then, this also applies to Jessie, who has dressed as a man on several occasions (though she doesn't seem to crossdress as much as James does.)

They've mostly stopped crossdressing since Johto but it will sometimes pop up.



* Train from ''Manga/BlackCat'' has this happen to him in the anime. Also coupled with him turning into a cute little boy (due to being shot with a Lucifer bullet). Due to him shrinking in size, no one else except [[TykeBomb Eve]] has clothes his size - so he ends up having to wear her dress temporarily. The saddest part? He looked damn good in it.

* ''Franchise/LupinIII'' is a MasterOfDisguise and does this often. Either disguising himself as a female ally (such as FemmeFatale Fujiko), someone the target knows to get close to the loot, or to fool security at a venue he's about to hit. It has backfired on him on at least one occasion, when the man he was planning on robbing fell in love and proposed. The reveal did not dissuade him.
