* [[{{Dragaera}} The ''Khaavren Romances'']] are a fantasy [[RecycledInSpace recycling]] of the ''D'Artagnan Romances'' (''Literature/TheThreeMusketeers'' and its sequels). The Porthos-equivalent, Tazendra, is female. This leads to interesting results, as the original is very much a BoisterousBruiser, a character-type almost always male, and applying these traits to Tazendra not only makes her a rare female example, but also results in her having some of the traits of TheLadette.

* Technically all games where you can pick the gender of your PlayerCharacter feature genderflipped versions of the protagonist. No matter if you play as male or female, your character is given the same backstory, same quests, and same character arc. A good example is BioWare's ''Franchise/MassEffect'' trilogy, where Shepard is given the same last name, familial backstory, and pre-service record regardless of gender, so the male and female versions of Shepard are essentially GenderFlipped alternate versions of each other. Some games, however, like ''[[VideoGame/{{Fallout4}} Fallout 4]]'', avert this by making the male and female versions of the PlayerCharacter distinct. In the case of ''[[VideoGame/{{Fallout4}} Fallout 4]]'', the male and female versions of the Sole Survivor are husband and wife. [[spoiler:Only the chosen PC survives the tutorial, and part of their motivation is tracking down their spouse's killer.]]
