* K. Lynn's ''His Womanly Ways''employs the body-horror route with a gradual genderswap for the main character. Womanizer gets cursed to know what it's like for a woman, and he slowly starts turning into one. The change is [[FirstLawOfGenderBending found to be permanent]], but the novel subverts the typical genderswap tropes by utilizing an underlying transgender theme.

* ''LightNovel/YoujoSenki'': The main character Tanya is an unusual example: she was a man in her previous life, and was reincarnated as a girl in an alternate universe with all of her memories intact. For the most part, she doesn't let this bother her, though she doesn't like wearing girly dresses and finds the prospect of sex as a woman deeply disgusting.

Theodore Nott is similarly transformed into a siren, a kind of female monster like a humanoid equivalent of a black widow, and there was also a grandfather of Sirius' who apparently fell into the Spring of the Drowned Double-Jointed Concubine.

* ''VideoGame/{{Civilization}} II'', like most games in the series, has a "unit upgrade" mechanic - the "Leonardo's Workshop" wonder, in this case. When built, this wonder will turn all your Diplomat units into the more advanced Spy. The Diplomat is depicted as a stereotypical old-fashioned diplomat, a little man wearing tails, a top hat, and grey striped trousers. The Spy, however, is a busty female wearing a LittleBlackDress. So your diplomatic corps not only gets better skills, but free sex changes!



* ''VideoGame/DivinityIITheDragonKnightSaga'' features the illusionists; mages who use their talents to reshape one's physical appearance, which includes gender, at no cost. Players are given the option to take advantage of their services in the first area of the game, Farglow, through a rather eccentric individual named Tiresias. Later, once you've claimed your battle tower, you gain access to the services of another illusionist by the name of Hermaphroditus, and then again in the Flames of Vengeance expansion through a woman named Chanelle in the city of Aleroth.
** The names of the two illusionists of the base game are actually both references to Myth/GreekMythology. Hermaphroditus refers to a minor god of the same name, who was the god of hermaphrodites and effeminate men, while Tiresias is a reference to the myth of a prophet by the same name.
*** The myth of Tiresias is even further referenced when Tiresias mentions he's taken advantage of the spells, himself. If you decide to read his mind, his thoughts read "Which was more fun: man or woman. I can never decide."
** One particular quest in the ''VideoGame/DivinityIIFlamesOfVengeance'' expansion, "All the After World's a Stage" presents a scenario where male player characters are required to switch gender, at least temporarily. The quest requires the player to visit a haunted theater, abandoned after an incident where one of the actors accidentally acted out a demon's summoning ritual. Inside the frustrated ghosts of the actresses and director are found rehearsing for the scene. After speaking with the ghost of the director, Alfred, you are asked to retrieve a copy of the script. Afterward, you may ask to help by filling the role of Camilla. If your character is female, you can get right to it. However, if you are male, Alfred tells you he needs a female actor, and to "Come back once you look a little more... feminine." A simple trip to an illusionist sorts this issue out.



* Players in ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' can change gender at Ye Olde Gender-Reassignment Clinic in the Sleazy Back Alley, or upon ascension. Either way, gender serves essentially no purpose in the game except for a few words and the hair length of avatars.



* Although not necessarily a true case of Gender Bending, the 1996 game ''VideoGame/{{Pandemonium}}'' by Crystal Dynamics has a cheat labeled; BODYSWAP, which, when inputted shows the statement "Gender Bender!" The cheat itself, however, only enables in-level character swapping between Nikki and Fargus.



* [[ShapeshifterWeapon Alex Mercer]] from ''Videogame/{{Prototype}}'' is capable of doing this when consuming a female character and turning into her. Then again, [[spoiler:Is it really gender bending if you have no gender to begin with?]].



* Should Mario grab a Mystery Mushroom in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'', he'll turn into the character that was assigned to said mushroom. This includes the likes of Princess Peach and the Wii Fit Trainer.
* In the {{VideoGame/MUGEN}}-based game ''VideoGame/TheBlackHeart'', [[DeathSeeker Animus]] constantly switches between male and female appearance. Many attacks are "gender-specific", but he automatically changes gender as appropriate when they are performed, so the changes are mostly cosmetic.
* Though this has yet to show up in any game, in the lore of ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', the [[LizardFolk Argonians]] are apparently sequential hermaphrodites, and they change gender entirely at certain points, these are known among the Argonians as "life-phases".



* Apparently, this is a standard part of military training for the Marines faction in ''VideoGame/{{WarWind}}''. Even if there are no female recruits available for hire in the game, they become women when trained as Grunts at the Barracks.

* ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}''
** Demitri Maximoff (or Maximov; it changes) has a move called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOPNAB4C_uQ Midnight Bliss]], in which he turns an opponent into a woman before [[LifeEnergy sucking the life]] out of her. (What happens when he uses it on female opponents varies wildly between victims.)
** In regards to this, in ''VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos'', Goenitz is one of the playable characters. His Midnight Bliss form (called [[FanNickname Goeniko]]) has become very popular as a result, ironically turning every gamer's worst nightmare into every hentai artist's dream.
*** It gets weird when Hugo is Blissed. Just... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6F5WWgGkKc#t=1m40s look at him]] when Demitri is draining his lifeforce... [[spoiler: he [[{{Squick}} becomes]] [[VideoGame/FinalFight Poison]]!!!]]
*** It just gets weirder in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSvzOhsFJLg&NR=1 this fanvid]] made in ''{{VideoGame/MUGEN}}''. For example, Miyako turns into [[Music/{{Vocaloid}} Hatsune Miku]] when Blissed.
* Zohar, TheRival in ''VideoGame/SilhouetteMirage'', has two forms with opposite attributes and gender. As Zohar Metatron, he's a Silhouette-attribute who wields a sword; as Zohar Sandalphon, she's a Mirage-attribute with a gun.



* ''VideoGame/NightsIntoDreams'' has a rather interesting example. [=NiGHTS=], the character of the games gender depends on what gender the person viewing [=NiGHTS=] sees [=NiGHTS=] as. Since [=NiGHTS=] combines with people to escape the Ideya Palace, you've got to wonder what happens when someone sees him as the opposite gender...
* ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' allows you to transmigrate any non-story character into another class, with the option of changing gender in the process. If that's not enough, you can choose to turn him into a penguin instead.
** A stranger example comes from the ''LightNovel/DisgaeaNovels''. [[spoiler:Lamington states that angels have no set gender to begin with, instead taking in traits from the environment and their own emotions having an effect. Apparently their choices in weaponry also affect the outcome as well, which gets weird when you figure that the angels in-game are all female.]]
** Happens to Laharl in ''VideoGame/DisgaeaDimension2'' but only for one Episode. There is an option to pass a bill to turn him back into a girl again.
** In ''VideoGame/Disgaea5'' there is an evility called "Gender Bender" that you can equip to any character. It doesn't change their character model, alter cutscenes, or change voices, however certain evilities affect specific genders, and this can be used to gain or avoid certain effects. For example, equip Killia with this evility and he gains the 5% all-map ally stat boost from Axel that specifically affects female units, and becomes immune to the Succubus's male-focused debuff. This effect is as permanent as you want it and can be freely switched on and off.
* Another Creator/NipponIchi example comes from ''VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters''. [[spoiler:The player character, Revya, was explicitly born as Median's firstborn son all of about 200-some years back. This trope comes into play if you choose to play as a female. And considering the ''Disgaea 3'' DLC has Female Revya...]]

* ''VideoGame/NightsIntoDreams'' ''VideoGame/BlazBlueChronophantasma Extend'' has a rather interesting example. [=NiGHTS=], two side-stories starring Mai Natsume, the protagonist of the ''Manga/BlazblueRemixHeart'' manga, who has been magically transformed into a girl.

* ''[[VideoGame/MrDo Neo Mr. Do]]'' has a powerup that turns the title character into a woman, as if Mr. Do wasn't creepy enough....
* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', [[spoiler:Shadow Naoto]] tries to turn its creator into an adult male through body alteration. Luckily, you can stop it before that happens because all shadows you haven't personally stopped have murdered their originals, the implication being that the operation would have GoneHorriblyWrong.
* ''VideoGame/FableII''
** The [[ReligionOfEvil Temple of Shadows]] has the "Wheel of Misfortune", which kills human sacrifices through random means. Among its possibilities are electrocution, impalement, beheading and "Gender Change."
** The player has a chance to use a sex changing potion after buying Castle Fairfax. This potion is one-time use and irreversible (the game saves immediately after you use it), unless you play Co-Op online and use someone else's potion. The change is generally acknowledged by the [=NPCs=], but your spouse couldn't care less (unless the situation becomes [[IncompatibleOrientation incompatible]] and your child readily starts calling you 'mum' or 'dad').
* Toward the end of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', Sheik, in a [[ItWasHisSled shocking twist everyone knows]], turns into the princess herself. There's [[FlipFlopOfGod contradictory information]] on whether the change was just [[WholesomeCrossdresser clothes and hair]] ([[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and color contacts]]), but it certainly looks magical.



* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''
** Specific to ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Pokémon Crystal]]'', if the player chooses the female avatar, they appear as the male avatar if they want to trade with any other game, as the sprite data for the female avatar doesn't exist in any other compatible version. However, in this game the player's gender choice was [[PurelyAestheticGender purely aesthetic]], so nothing is made of it.
*** Though that's inverted in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonStadium Pokémon Stadium 2]]''; using the Crystal console to select your Pokémon in any arena results in your avatar being displayed as female. It's still purely aesthetic, but still.
** Azurill has a 1 male to 3 female gender ratio, while its evolution Marill has an even gender ratio, meaning 1/3 of female Azurill become male upon evolution. [[LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}} In other words, it grows a dick.]] (This is most likely unintended.) This "bug" was fixed as of ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', as said Azurill now retain their genders when they evolve.
** An intentional example occurs in ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonGatesToInfinity''. Meloetta refers to her Aria forme as "Princess" and his Pirouette forme as "Prince". Given that they also refer to each other as different people, they may just be a CloudCuckooLander.
* ''VideoGame/{{World of Warcraft}}''
** Chronormu, a bronze dragon who 1) had a name consistent with the naming standards of male bronze dragons, and 2) prefers to [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith take the humanoid form]] of a ''female'' gnome named Chromie. This appears to have been an error, though, as her rare appearances in dragon form have since been changed to either just say Chromie, or Chronormi (the female suffix for bronze dragons).
*** Turns out that Chromie has always been female, and it's just a GenderBlenderName. Chromie herself explains this. "Chronormu is not a male name, you just don't understand dragon culture!"
** Player characters gained access to [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney character appearance resets for $25]] in 2008. This includes the ability to change your character's gender. This was used as an explicit selling point for the resets.
** In "Wrath of the Lich King", the player is led through quests to a village entirely inhabited by Hyldnir, female Giants. For purposes of disguise it the player must transform into a Hyldnir, regardless of original gender.
** Using an Illusion Potion near a character of the opposite sex.
** Certain items that transform you into traditionally male creatures do (or did) cause you to be considered male as far as gender specific titles are concerned, such as the Iron Boot Flask which turns you into a male Iron Dwarf. Strangely, while the Pygmy gnome transformation of Pygmy Oil turned the player into a female Pygmy gnome, it would also result in female characters' titles changing to the ''male'' equivalent.

* Although not necessarily a true case of Gender Bending, the 1996 game ''VideoGame/{{Pandemonium}}'' by Crystal Dynamics has a cheat labeled; BODYSWAP, which, when inputted shows the statement "Gender Bender!" The cheat itself, however, only enables in-level character swapping between Nikki and Fargus.
* In the {{VideoGame/MUGEN}}-based game ''VideoGame/TheBlackHeart'', [[DeathSeeker Animus]] constantly switches between male and female appearance. Many attacks are "gender-specific", but he automatically changes gender as appropriate when they are performed, so the changes are mostly cosmetic.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', as you leave Vault 101 after the tutorial, you have the option of reassigning your character's gender. In the PC version, you can also do this with console commands.
* Though this has yet to show up in any game, in the lore of ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', the [[LizardFolk Argonians]] are apparently sequential hermaphrodites, and they change gender entirely at certain points, these are known among the Argonians as "life-phases".
* ''VideoGame/DivinityIITheDragonKnightSaga'' features the illusionists; mages who use their talents to reshape one's physical appearance, which includes gender, at no cost. Players are given the option to take advantage of their services in the first area of the game, Farglow, through a rather eccentric individual named Tiresias. Later, once you've claimed your battle tower, you gain access to the services of another illusionist by the name of Hermaphroditus, and then again in the Flames of Vengeance expansion through a woman named Chanelle in the city of Aleroth.
** The names of the two illusionists of the base game are actually both references to Myth/GreekMythology. Hermaphroditus refers to a minor god of the same name, who was the god of hermaphrodites and effeminate men, while Tiresias is a reference to the myth of a prophet by the same name.
*** The myth of Tiresias is even further referenced when Tiresias mentions he's taken advantage of the spells, himself. If you decide to read his mind, his thoughts read "Which was more fun: man or woman. I can never decide."
** One particular quest in the ''VideoGame/DivinityIIFlamesOfVengeance'' expansion, "All the After World's a Stage" presents a scenario where male player characters are required to switch gender, at least temporarily. The quest requires the player to visit a haunted theater, abandoned after an incident where one of the actors accidentally acted out a demon's summoning ritual. Inside the frustrated ghosts of the actresses and director are found rehearsing for the scene. After speaking with the ghost of the director, Alfred, you are asked to retrieve a copy of the script. Afterward, you may ask to help by filling the role of Camilla. If your character is female, you can get right to it. However, if you are male, Alfred tells you he needs a female actor, and to "Come back once you look a little more... feminine." A simple trip to an illusionist sorts this issue out.
* ''VideoGame/MindYourManors'' has a strong gender bending theme, with [[spoiler: three out of four]] endings where the protagonist is stuck as a woman. The severity of the change depends on the ending. To be expected, considering it was done by the creator of the Webcomic/{{Sins}} webcomic.
* Apparently, this is a standard part of military training for the Marines faction in ''VideoGame/{{WarWind}}''. Even if there are no female recruits available for hire in the game, they become women when trained as Grunts at the Barracks.
* [[ShapeshifterWeapon Alex Mercer]] from ''Videogame/{{Prototype}}'' is capable of doing this when consuming a female character and turning into her. Then again, [[spoiler:Is it really gender bending if you have no gender to begin with?]].
* ''Videogame/DragonBallOnline'' lets you create a female Majin but if you want to use the pure Majin power up it will turn you into a clone of Kid Buu (a male) for its duration.
* Should Mario grab a Mystery Mushroom in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'', he'll turn into the character that was assigned to said mushroom. This includes the likes of Princess Peach and the Wii Fit Trainer.
* ''BlazBlueChronophantasma Extend'' has two side-stories starring the protagonist of the ''Manga/BlazblueRemixHeart'' manga, who has been magically transformed into a girl.

''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''


Added DiffLines:

** Specific to ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Pokémon Crystal]]'', if the player chooses the female avatar, they appear as the male avatar if they want to trade with any other game, as the sprite data for the female avatar doesn't exist in any other compatible version. However, in this game the player's gender choice was [[PurelyAestheticGender purely aesthetic]], so nothing is made of it.
*** Though that's inverted in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonStadium Pokémon Stadium 2]]''; using the Crystal console to select your Pokémon in any arena results in your avatar being displayed as female. It's still purely aesthetic, but still.
** Azurill has a 1 male to 3 female gender ratio, while its evolution Marill has an even gender ratio, meaning 1/3 of female Azurill become male upon evolution. [[LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}} In other words, it grows a dick.]] (This is most likely unintended.) This "bug" was fixed as of ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', as said Azurill now retain their genders when they evolve.
** An intentional example occurs in ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonGatesToInfinity''. Meloetta refers to her Aria forme as "Princess" and his Pirouette forme as "Prince". Given that they also refer to each other as different people, they may just be a CloudCuckooLander.
* ''VideoGame/RuneScape''
** The Makeover Mage in Falador will change your gender for a fee of 3,000 coins.
** There is a members quest where one of the tasks ''requires'' you to do this if you are male, as, in the words of the enemy in question, "[[NoManOfWomanBorn No man]] [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings can kill me!]]"
* Zohar, TheRival in ''VideoGame/SilhouetteMirage'', has two forms with opposite attributes and gender. As Zohar Metatron, he's a Silhouette-attribute who wields a sword; as Zohar Sandalphon, she's a Mirage-attribute with a gun.
* Another Creator/NipponIchi example comes from ''VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters''. [[spoiler:The player character, Revya, was explicitly born as Median's firstborn son all of about 200-some years back. This trope comes into play if you choose to play as a female.
* Toward the end of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', Sheik, in a [[ItWasHisSled shocking twist everyone knows]], turns into the princess herself. There's [[FlipFlopOfGod contradictory information]] on whether the change was just [[WholesomeCrossdresser clothes and hair]] ([[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and color contacts]]), but it certainly looks magical.
* Drag Queen's ending in ''TwistedMetal 4''.
* ''VideoGame/{{World of Warcraft}}''
** Chronormu, a bronze dragon who 1) had a name consistent with the naming standards of male bronze dragons, and 2) prefers to [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith take the humanoid form]] of a ''female'' gnome named Chromie. This appears to have been an error, though, as her rare appearances in dragon form have since been changed to either just say Chromie, or Chronormi (the female suffix for bronze dragons).
*** Turns out that Chromie has always been female, and it's just a GenderBlenderName. Chromie herself explains this. "Chronormu is not a male name, you just don't understand dragon culture!"
** Player characters gained access to [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney character appearance resets for $25]] in 2008. This includes the ability to change your character's gender. This was used as an explicit selling point for the resets.
** In "Wrath of the Lich King", the player is led through quests to a village entirely inhabited by Hyldnir, female Giants. For purposes of disguise it the player must transform into a Hyldnir, regardless of original gender.
** Using an Illusion Potion near a character of the opposite sex.
** Certain items that transform you into traditionally male creatures do (or did) cause you to be considered male as far as gender specific titles are concerned, such as the Iron Boot Flask which turns you into a male Iron Dwarf. Strangely, while the Pygmy gnome transformation of Pygmy Oil turned the player into a female Pygmy gnome, it would also result in female characters' titles changing to the ''male'' equivalent.
* ''VideoGame/{{Civilization}} II'', like most games in the series, has a "unit upgrade" mechanic - the "Leonardo's Workshop" wonder, in this case. When built, this wonder will turn all your Diplomat units into the more advanced Spy. The Diplomat is depicted as a stereotypical old-fashioned diplomat, a little man wearing tails, a top hat, and grey striped trousers. The Spy, however, is a busty female wearing a LittleBlackDress. So your diplomatic corps not only gets better skills, but free sex changes!
* Players in ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' can change gender at Ye Olde Gender-Reassignment Clinic in the Sleazy Back Alley, or upon ascension. Either way, gender serves essentially no purpose in the game except for a few words and the hair length of avatars.
* Although not necessarily a true case of Gender Bending, the 1996 game ''VideoGame/{{Pandemonium}}'' by Crystal Dynamics has a cheat labeled; BODYSWAP, which, when inputted shows the statement "Gender Bender!"
