* The "surprise" was enhanced due to it being a blatant {{retcon}} (since she was originally referred to as "he" before the text on her card was changed later) but Shikana, Who Demands Tribute from ''VideoGame/InfinityWars'' is actually female. She looks like [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/infinitywarsatcg/images/4/49/IW2013_SHIKANA_WHO_DEMANDS_TRIBUTE.png/revision/latest?cb=20140225131524 this.]][[note]]This is a pre-retcon copy of the card with the old male pronoun.[[/note]]

* The dragon Hooktail in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''. Despite the character being the first major boss of the story, you don't learn this until the final chapter--where [[BigBrotherInstinct her older brother]] is the first of ''[[BossRush many]]'' bosses, and is [[ItsPersonal predictably pissed off at you for what you did to his sister]]. Even the characters assume Hooktail to be male, and refer to her using male pronouns.

* Inverted in ''{{Slayers}}'' - A female-looking firebreather is revealed to be a [[IncrediblyLamePun "drag"-on]] despite TertiarySexualCharacteristics, when Gourry gets a good glimpse of the underside. ** A chapter of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' did pretty much the same thing with a giant armadillo whose gender Naruto and Killer Bee argued about trying to discover, except that [[{{Squick}} we ALL got a good look at its underside.]] '''[[BrainBleach TWICE]]''' * Combined with SamusIsAGirl in ''MahouSenseiNegima'': unlike most examples the BountyHunter with the naughty tentacles actually ''was'' a CuteMonsterGirl, and it turned out the tentacles and stocky build were from a set of PoweredArmor she wore.

* In {{Popeye}}'s Plunder Island Arc, Wimpy is at one point dragged off of Popeye's ship and onto the Sea Hag by the monstrous Goon. Soaked from being in the ocean, Wimpy decides to take off his clothes while being held captive with the Goon watching him. Just as he's about to strip naked, a voice comes through the door, saying, "Keep a close eye on him, Alice." Wimpy quickly realizes who 'Alice' is, and quickly re-clothes himself, saying, "I didn't know there was a female present." * In Creator/MarvelComics, Piranha (a normal piranha fish mutated by radiation into a semi-humanoid being) was always assumed to be male since the character's introduction in 1974. Even A.R.M.O.R.'s file on Pirnaha lists "male" under sex. In a 2009 comic it's discovered it's actually a female when the monster has incubated humans with its offspring.

* In ''Franchise/StarWars'', if the [[VideoGame/StarWarstheForceUnleashed video game]] is to be believed, the Rancor Luke fights in episode 6 is a female as well, as in the video game you fight a "Rancor Bull," which looks the same, only it has horns.

* One 2E supplement about the {{Dragonlance}} D&D setting had a section on minotaur society, complete with an in-character narrator who'd been captured by sea-going minotaurs. When this character asks the ship's captain about minotaur family life, the captain gruffly points out that the husky, wide-horned first mate who's been holding the narrator's hands behind his back throughout their conversation is, in fact, his wife.
