* The fantasy spinoff for ''TabletopGame/GraveRobbersFromOuterSpace'' has a character known as "The Way Too Pretty Elf." Technically the character is male, but is so effeminate that cards that can normally only be used on ladies can also be used on him.

* The two principal characters of the ''{{Nightrunner}}'' books are [[OurElvesAreBetter Aurenfaie]]. Both are repeatedly described as pretty, and Seregil disguises himself as a woman without much difficulty.

* Hungarian-British illustrator [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victor_Ambrus Victor Ambrus]] has averted this when he drew his version of the Middle Earth Elves of JRRTolkien. His male Elves are notably masculine, often with lined faces and distinct features, as opposed to the more known Elf-drawings of Allan Lee, who was chosen as codifier for the movie Elves. His version of [[https://no.pinterest.com/pin/417708934161208333/ Legolas]] should be noted. As a sidenote, his Elves even lack the traditional pointed ears. The "elvishness" is explained by drawing a kind of sparkles around them, and very bright eyes. His female Elves are distinctly delicate as opposed to the more masculine roughness.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' uses the AmbiguousGender of the Elves as a RunningGag, to the extent that, in the subtitles, the Elvish children refer to their parental units as "parent" and "other parent" rather than "mother" and "father". Worth mentioning is that the AmbiguousGender of Vaarsuvius (one of the aforementioned parents) has been a running joke for a long time (even if it wasn't meant to be ambiguous at first). Also, the children are adopted, so any of the four gender combinations for two people is possible for V and his/her spouse. As of 2016, two elves have established genders; The Order of the Scribble's Lirian and priestess Veldrina -- the latter of whom was introduced years into the comic and was originally a fan-created character.
