* Akira Shiraishi in ''Manga/AiOreLoveMe'', the "princess" of his all-boys school, and considered a girl even by his brothers. Also dating the [[{{Bifauxnen}} "prince"]] of an all-girls school, Mizuki Sakurazaka.

* [[{{Nightrunner}} Seregil]] ''unintentionally'' manages to have a very straight man fall in love/lust with him using only a very modest dress, a little make-up, and his acting skills. (He already has a slim body, long hair, and apparently no facial hair growth.) He spent many days in that disguise surrounded by the same people on a cramped ship, and nobody noticed. His apprentice also developed a bit of a crush on him, and later unconsciously chooses a female prostitute who looked like Seregil in drag. [[spoiler:Of course, later it turns out that the kid is bisexual and just hadn't realized it yet.]]

* Nagisa from ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom''. He confused many readers into think he's a girl. At one point it's lampshaded--the class goes swimming, and a couple girls notice he's in male swimwear.

** Beethoven was mistaken for a crossdressing girl while walking with Ren by two guys who came to Vienna to pick up girls.

to:

** Beethoven was mistaken for a crossdressing girl while walking with Ren by two guys who came to Vienna to pick up girls. Salieri says he has feminine features and his long hair and short stature don't help. Since the two guys wouldn't give up about taking Ren and Beethoven on a double date, even after Salieri confirmed their alleged gender, Beethoven outright stripped to prove he was, in fact, a man.
**In-universe only, Rentarou tries to avoid that trope as much as possible. However Mozart tells Ren she already looks girly and fragile because she is so petite and baby-faced, and her jittery behavior doesn't help. Wagner interpreted the imposter's accusations as this trope because of that jittery behavior and [[spoiler:Tchaikovsky]] figures out Ren's secret because she's trying too hard.
