* ''Manga/RecoveryOfAnMMOJunkie'' has a double whammy, with protagonist Moriko Morioka joining the MMO ''Fruits de Mer'' as a male character named Hayashi and becoming good friends with the ludicrously adorable Lily, who's played by a male office worker named Yuta Sakurai. [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity (and romance) ensues]]. Their guildmaster Kanbe is aware of both their true genders, but keeps silent out of respect for their privacy.
** Their guildmate Himerelda is an example that everyone is aware of: she's a housewife playing a male elf but she doesn't adapt her behavior to her character's gender at all, making Himerelda come off as the guild's GayBestFriend-slash-CoolBigBro. Her husband is the guild's sub-leader Pokotaro and she'll occasionally log onto his account; she acts the same way as she does with Himerelda, which weirds out the rest of the guild since Pokotaro is a BigFun type normally.

* HarryPartridge's animated musical fan video, [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline "Back to Tamriel,"]] ends with him settling down with a gorgeous, well-endowed "elf mademoiselle." As TheStinger, he asked her if she's a woman in real life, to which she replies, in [[VocalDissonance the most masculine voice imaginable]], [[BlatantLies "Yes."]]

Based on the belief that ThereAreNoGirlsOnTheInternet. Some forums, particularly male-dominated ones, will be the victim of a special breed of {{Troll}} who will pretend to be a girl just to rile up the boy {{nerd}}s in the community. They display obvious CamWhore traits and may even steal photos of attractive girls off Website/MySpace or Website/{{Facebook}} and claim that they are them.

Will ultimately lead to [[TheReveal a reveal]] where they show their true colors as blokes and laugh at the incensed regulars. Or a regular will wise up to his shenanigans and unmask him, causing everyone to point and laugh at him as he slinks away with his tail between his legs. Could also be a practical joke played by a regular to which everyone will simply have a good laugh. Most cases tend to end in the second case, which brings up the question of why such trolls even bother doing it since the risk of being exposed far outweighs the potential gain. Note that not everyone who's biologically male and presents as female online is trolling; see CrossPlayer, {{Transsexual}}.

Naturally, any mention of online dating in the old media [[DatingServiceDisaster will end this way]], whether played for laughs or for drama, because everyone knows [[NewMediaAreEvil the internet is solely the domain of perverts]].

* Referenced in ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'', when [[GamerChick Minako]], [[GirlyGirlWithATomboyStreak who was already going at the arcades when they still were men-only places]], beat the record at a game and the previous record holder accused her to be a guy in a ''really'' convincing disguise-and [[HilarityEnsues demanded she took off "his" disguise, ending with a kick in the face]].

* Discussed in 'LetsPlay/LetsDrownOut Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood', where [[BenCroshaw Ben 'Yahtzee' Croshaw]] encouraged the viewers to go on a chatroom and be someone completely unlike themselves, such as a pregnant teenage black girl, to see the exciting side of roleplaying. This was also implied when Gabriel wondered about the time when Yahtzee was scamming players in WorldOfWarcraft by pretending to be a lady.

* Following the Ashley Madison dating site scandal, it became known that a huge percentage (in the range of 90%) of the alleged female users looking for infidelities in their site were actually the company employees creating false profiles and sending fake messages to atract the money of hopeful men.

* The (male) creators of a neural-net evolutionary-algorithm checkers-playing program wanted to test their software against real players, so they created an account on Microsoft's online gaming portal ''TheZone''. To make sure they'd get plenty of responses, they used the account name [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blondie24 Blondie24]].
