* The two principle characters of the ''{{Nightrunner}}'' books are [[OurElvesAreBetter Aurenfaie]]. Both are repeatedly described as pretty, and Seregil disguises himself as a woman without much difficulty.
* Elves in ''Literature/QuantumGravity'' tend to be thin and delicate-looking. Do not mistake this for weak. Elves are still fulfilling the archer [[IncrediblyLamePun archetype]] fairly often, and the author does recognize how much strength it takes to pull a decent-to-large-sized bow back.

Occasionally, elves of both genders will be portrayed as androgynous, but usually the male androgyny part of a broader tendency to portray all elves as particularly feminine, making the female elves anything but androgynous.

* ''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. So far 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.

* Played with by Creator/JRRTolkien. While his elven women are [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman quite feminine]], his elven men are stated to be manly. They are handsome but they are also mighty warriors and kings. This leads into OurElvesAreBetter. The FilmOfTheBook makes the male elves (particularly Legolas) look somewhat androgynous. This gets {{Lampshaded}} in the extended cut of ''Film/TheHobbitAnUnexpectedJourney'', where Kíli mistakes a male elf for a maiden. One might draw the conclusion that Tolkien elves, regardless of sex, manage to be as beautiful as human woman, and as BadAss (if not moreso) as human men.
