* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** The [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]], being technically OtherworldlyAndSexuallyAmbiguous divine spirits, this applies to all of them, and several of them are known to appear as differing genders at different times. Boethiah is the most prominent example, shifting between male and female forms (and voices) from one appearance to the next (including all of the PronounTrouble that brings). Others will only present themselves as a single gender (Azura and Nocturnal as female, Mehrunes Dagon, Molag Bal, and Sheogorath as male), and Hermaeus Mora forgoes [[EldritchAbomination even trying to resemble anything with a gender]] (although generally speaks with a male voice).
** According to some (potentially [[UnreliableExpositor unreliable]]) in-universe sources, [[LizardFolk Argonians]] are said to be sequential hermaphrodites, meaning they can switch genders. The time spent as either male or female is called a "life-phase".
** PhysicalGod Vivec claims to be a hermaphrodite. Once of his stories claims that he produced offspring with [[GodOfEvil Molag Bal]] (the tale of this includes a part where [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar they compare the size of their "spears" and engage in "piercing of the second aperture"]]). The Dissident Priests in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' explain that Vivec just [[UnreliableNarrator made most of that stuff up]] in order to appear more divine than "some guy who stole his Godhood while betraying his friend". There are even some holes in his story, such as the aforementioned "having kids with Molag Bal" as Daedra ''can't create life''. However, you can be sent on a quest by Molag Bal himself to banish a ''daughter'' of his back to his realm... stories dealing with gods in the ''Elder Scrolls'' universe can get very [[MindScrew Mind Screwy]]...

* A manga titled ''Osananajimi wa Onnanoko ni Naare'' revolves around a student named Shuchi rescuing a fairy named Sylphie, who offers him a wish as thanks. He wishes to have a "cute childhood girlfriend", causing Sylphie to transform his best friend Iori into a girl. While Iori can change back into a boy by loudly declaring it, Sylphie can always transform him back and he can become stuck as a girl if he becomes self-conscious of his new gender, which many of the other characters routinely abuse. Her goal is to honor her promise to Shuchi by inflicting a permanent ModeLock on Iori, much to the latter's dismay.

* Actually a play mechanic in {{Cave}}'s BulletHell series ''VideoGame/{{Espgaluda}}'' -- entering "awakening" mode causes your character's gender to flip, and for all the bullets to move in slow motion. It also makes it possible to cancel opposition bullets by killing the shooter to rack up huge scores. However, if the meter showing how long you can remain gender flipped runs out, you're immediately shunted back to your original gender, with bullets moving at double speed.

*** It is also far easier to return from the dead than to reverse this curse. The single most powerful spell in the game has only a 50% chance of reversing it.

* ''Anime/MazeMegaburstSpace'' is a complicated example. The title character changes gender at sunrise/sunset but each form has a separate personality and could almost be considered distinct individuals. The straightest example is when an artifact meant to lock the transition results in Male Maze inhabiting female Maze's body and vice versa come the next morning.
