* ''VideoGame/PapersPlease'' has some male entrants whose heads look like women's heads. You have to strip search them to find whether or not the passport's stated biological sex is true or not in order to determine whether to let them in or to arrest them.

* Literally the entire point of Hideyoshi's character in ''Anime/BakaAndTest''. He is thought of as a girl so much, even by his friends that he repeatedly tells he's a boy to, that both in-universe and out he is considered his very own gender.

* Eljuia from ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', whose RapunzelHair, long eyelashes, and general {{bishonen}} appearance cause some confusion, to the point of it being lampshaded when Shun is trying to describe the [[LaResistance Ignauts]] to an innkeeper:
-->'''Shun''': "Have you seen a guy with a feather sticking out of his hat? Or this guy who kind of looks like a girl?"

* In the original manga version of ''Manga/FairyTail'', Midnight's gender is very ambiguous, but the anime adaptation makes it more obvious that Midnight is a man thanks to voice acting. The makeup makes it easy to think that Midnight is actually a woman. Gajeel even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this in the Key to the Starry Skies arc:
--> '''Gajeel:''' You look like some angsty kid to got into his mother's makeup.

* Ruka (sometimes called Rukako) from ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate'' is incredibly effeminate and [[WholesomeCrossdresser frequently cross-dresses to complete the illusion]]. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d by Rintaro when Ruka is introduced; he makes a series of flattering descriptive statements, followed by "but he's a dude".
-->'''Rintaro:''' ''[narrating]'' Ruka: the embodiment of feminine grace and charm...also a total dude...

* Lord Geppelnitch ([[spoiler:or, rather, the human body he's possessing]]) from ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'' looks and sounds so ridiculously feminine that nobody among the fans could believe he was a man. Near the end of the series he is seen shirtless, which finally proves it.
* Alto Saotome from ''Anime/MacrossFrontier''. Well, it generally happened offscreen, but his [[{{Bishonen}} fine features]] and long hair make such reports rather believable. The fact that he's a trained (and talented!) Kabuki actor, who frequently played female roles, ''and'' [[StrongFamilyResemblance is a dead-ringer]] for his gorgeous MissingMom doesn't help either. Frequently addressed as "Princess", at one point he is even offered female clothing by a salesman who mistakes him for a girl. The first time he meets Ranka, she mistakes him for a beautiful woman. And even later ''describes'' him to Ozma with that in mind.

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in ''Manga/UQHolder''. The supposedly-male Kuromaru is extremely girly and gets mistaken for a girl and called "miss" by about every other character. However, while Kuromaru isn't lying when claiming not to be a girl, "he" is not actually a "dude" either. Turns out Kuromaru has NoBiologicalSex: the particular breed of demons he is descended from do not become male or female until 16 years of age, at which point they make a conscious decision which to become. Kuromaru is currently leaning towards male (hence why he identifies as such), but hasn't reached that age yet (and, due to his immortality, it's possible, though unconfirmed, that he never will). To make things more complicated, Kuromaru is beginning to think about becoming female, due to developing a crush on the male main character.

* Husky the fishboy from the manga ''Manga/PlusAnima'' is so girly in appearance, even the reader isn't sure of his gender until he complains about being forced to dress like a girl. When he's introduced, he's a circus attraction...the "Mermaid Princess". Characters frequently mistake him for a girl, and his friend Nana at one point becomes convinced that he's a girl in disguise due to his appearance and the fact that he's more girly than ''she'' is. Poor Husky is forced to prove his masculinity by getting naked and showing a horrified Nana his manly bits. As it turns out, the reason he [[HeManWomanHater doesn't care much for girls]] is because of how much he was teased for looking and acting like one as a boy. A side character even ''falls in love with him'' after Husky saved him from drowning...poor guy thought he was, well, the mermaid princess. A group of teenage boys invite him to come "play with them", thinking he's a girl. One mentions "she" is a bit young, but apparently the leader "likes [his girls] young". Even after Husky [[BerserkButton attacks them in rage]] they don't realize he's a boy.

* Sakuragaoka from ''Manga/DFrag.'' Not only does he look and sound exactly like a girl, but his female clubmember, Tsutsumi Inada, finds him extremely attractive when he crossdresses, often finding any excuse to get him to wear girlish outfits.

* ''Manga/TheFiveStarStories''' Amaterasu dis Grand Grees Eydas IV and his sort-of honorary nephew [[ArtificialHuman Maximum HOLTFORS Ballanche Kaien]], Duke of Fates. The guys could win any [[AmbiguousGender androgyny contest]] just by showing up, and [[UnsettlingGenderReveal surprising]] unsuspecting males is a RunningGag for Amaterasu when he goes to [[KingIncognito fool around incognito]]. Hell, there was a moment when Amaterasu was impersonated by a full-on woman, and nobody noticed.



* Junior of ''[[Anime/ReadOrDie ROD the TV]]'' is pretty enough that one of the Paper Sisters invites him to be their younger sister, [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} so they can all play]] ''Literature/LittleWomen'' together. This...throws him somewhat.

* ''Manga/TheWorldIsStillBeautiful'''s Bardouin, thanks to his [[LongHairedPrettyBoy long hair and bishonen looks]]. Livius lampshades this in an argument, saying he should just look in the mirror if he wants to go after pretty girls. [[BerserkButton Bardouin doesn't react well to that comment.]]
