* In ecchi series with gender-bending that don't involve the supernatural, this is usually the cause. It would probably be easier to list the exceptions than examples.



* ''Literature/IAmJ'' averts and discusses this. J is a seventeen year old trans boy who discovers early in the book about trans people and transitioning. He begins taking hormones partway through the book. His friend Melissa doesn't quite understand what being transgender means until he thoroughly explains it. She heard that trans people "have surgery, and then they become the other gender" but J tells her otherwise.

* After a patch to ''VideoGame/TheSims 4'', partially or even fully changing a Sim's sex - to the tune of dramatic body and voice changes and adding/removing the ability to become pregnant and impregnate others - can be done at a mirror or dresser by any teenage-or-older Sim at any time.

* ''Manga/WanderingSon'', which treats these types of issue more seriously in general, averts this. At one point, [[{{Transsexual}} transgender]] CoolBigSis Yuki confides to Yoshino that her mother can't forgive her because she wanted to be a girl, "wanted it ''so'' bad." Which can imply that Yuki went through all the proper processes. It's also showing signs with the protagonists, who are slowly transitioning (well, as much as teenagers with parents who aren't letting them go to therapists can).

* In the "Nobody's Perfect" episode of ''Series/KarenSisco'', Karen hunts fugitive Louis [=DiNardo=]. Eventually, it turns out that Louis has had surgery to become "Lois". The timeline is a little vague, but certainly not enough time has elapsed for the requirements of ethical SRS medical treatment. While easy, the surgery is also thorough (Lois specifically mentions that she no longer has a penis, and that she "doesn't miss it"), and quite successful. While Louis is played by a male actor, Lois is played by Alexandra Billings, an {{attractive|BentGender}} female actress -- albeit one who [[{{Transsexual}} once was a male]] herself.

* Ted from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' long ago invented a device that allows him to change a person's biological sex (and other features) essentially at will. In fact, his obsession with transforming himself and his friends into the opposite sex could have been seen as somewhat creepy... until it's revealed that he's gender fluid, and was using the tech to help him wrestle with his own gender identity. He actually used the change ray to walk around school as a girl for several days, but [[DudeLooksLikeALady he was already so effeminate as a guy]] that no one noticed.

** [[spoiler:Magus]] demonstrates a darker side of this trope. In his world, magic is commonplace, including gender bending magic. This means that gender equality lags far behind our world; if a woman wants to become a soldier, she's allowed, but she's expected to become a man first.

* Subverted in ''Film/BadEducation''. Ignacio is prevented from having one because he doesn't have enough money. All he manages to get are breast implants, and he still looks like a man in spite of that.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', this is one of the ''many'' possible applications of the Hor Hor no Mi Devil Fruit, which was ingested by flamboyant DragQueen Emporio Ivankov, who has been shown both [[GenderBender effortlessly switching between male and female versions of himself]] and forcibly transforming a male enemy of his for laughs, which he does on-screen instanteously just by touching him. In fact, he can change the genders of people so easily that it really becomes a headscratcher why his followers consist solely of the most hideously ''ugly'' caricaturish {{Drag Queen}}s you can imagine.

* Downplayed in ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'': someone talented in Life magic can change their sexual characteristics at will, and a Master of Life can do it for others with a touch, but the spell needs to be renewed periodically or it will wear off.

* This trope is used in a very really bizarre (and squick-inducing) way in the Japanese-exclusive game ''Han-Seimei Senki Andorogynus'' for the MSX and PC-88 at the half of the game: After the titular, male-looking, protagonist is fatally wounded, he is "rebuilded" as a very beautiful woman, which she doesn't look like her previous male form ''at all''. Keep in mind his previous male form was [[http://www.mobygames.com/game/han-seimei-senki-andorogynus/cover-art/gameCoverId,382242/ this]] and her new female form is [[https://www.gamefaqs.com/msx/935994-andorogynus/images/180786 now this]]. The squick part came out with the fact ''we can see almost the all sex change surgery in its gory detail''.

* It's vague exactly how Yukari and Sora from ''Manga/FamilyCompo'' transitioned. It's implied they're both non-op and likely not on hormones (Sora still menstruates and they have some UnsettlingGenderReveal moments involving their genitalia and chests) but are able to pass perfectly nevertheless.

* Nao from ''Kinpachi-sensei'' averts this. He wants surgery now but is told by a doctor it's a long process. He's only fifteen and won't be allowed to go on hormones until age twenty, age eighteen with parental consent. It would take two to three years of hormones until he can get any surgery and even then he'd need a lot of therapy beforehand. Nao's understandably distraught.
