* Aither, in the original Greek mythology, is male. In the ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh OCG'', Aither, is female. This makes sense, if they want a contrast between the ruler of Heaven and the ruler of the Underworld.

* Similarly, some ''Comicbook/{{Exiles}}'' stories had the team visit worlds with Gender flipped versions of Marvel heroes. The most prominent example would be the team's version of Sunfire, who had the civilian identity of Mariko Yashida rather than Shiro Yoshida.

** The Puppet gets this treatment as well, in not one, but ''two'' ways. Like Mangle, it has an AmbiguousGender (but is generally agreed to be male.) and it also resembles a [[MonsterClown clown]]. However, [[spoiler: the animatronics in the series are canonically possessed by dead children, whose genders are also unknown save for the Puppet's, which is male. Doesn't stop people from depicting the child as female, though.]]

* ''Series/Missing2012'' ([[SimilarlyNamedWorks neither]] [[{{Missing}} of these]]) (female secret agent searches for her kidnapped son) seems to be a gender-flipped TV version of ''{{Taken}}'' (male ex-secret agent searches for his kidnapped daughter).

** Officially speaking, all versions of Bonnie the Bunny are [[GenderBlenderName male]]. That doesn't stop people from portraying them as female, ''especially'' when it comes to [[DudeLooksLikeALady Toy Bonnie]] (who is often referred to as "BonBon" when his gender is flipped). * Chica the Chicken probably got this before, since she doesn't really look female at all.

* Funtime Foxy, A.K.A. Mangle, has an AmbiguousGender due to conflicting evidence from the second game. They're supposed to be a remade version of Foxy the Pirate Fox, who is male. However, there's a possibility that Foxy himself actually underwent a GenderFlip InUniverse. Look up a picture of Mangle and you'll see why. However, the game's instructor calls Mangle a male, leaving the fandom [[BrokenBase split]] on the issue entirely. Whatever gender Mangle is, they've ''definitely'' gotten this treatment in fan works and are probably the whole reason the aforementioned "gender memes" even exist. * The Puppet gets this treatment as well, in not one, but ''two'' ways. Like Mangle, it has an AmbigousGender (but is generally agreed to be male.) and it also resembles a [[MonsterClown clown]]. However, [[spoiler: the animatronics in the series are canonically possessed by dead children, whose genders are also unknown save for the Puppet's, which is male.

* Happens ''way too often to keep track of'' in ''Franchise/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' fan works, usually due to either ViewerGenderConfusion or flat-out {{Shipping}}. In fact, it's ''so'' common, that there are meme templates all over the Internet (mostly WebOriginal/DeviantArt) of what gender the animatronic characters are in the user's AlternateUniverse. It's also one of the reasons the fandom has a rather poor reputation. ** Officially speaking, all versions of Bonnie the Bunny are [[GenderBlenderName male]].

* In ''Manga/GekkanShoujoNozakiKun'', Nozaki is prone to this when taking inspiration from people he knows - Mikoshiba, Wakamatsu, Hori and Seo all inspire gender-flipped characters. This can also be invoked by the manga itself as many of the male characters have personality traits more commonly associated with female characters, and vice versa. For instance, Mikorin is basically a blushing male {{Tsundere}}, while Kashima is a female HandsomeLech, ChickMagnet and [[TheCharmer Charmer]].
