* ''ComicBook/GothamAcademy: Second Semester'' reintroduces the Terrible Trio as Academy students. Armand Lydecker, the Fox, becomes Amanda Lydecker and Warren Lawford, the Shark, becomes Wendy Lawford. It's also mentioned that Amanda is descended from a 19th centuty Ambroos Lydecker who ''also'' called himself the Fox, so it's possible the original Trio are still in continuity as part of the AncientConspiracy.

* Unlike most of the Universe 6 [[MirrorUniverse counterparts]] in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Caulifla and Kale serves as this to Goku and Broly respectively. Their relationship, however, is far friendly compared to the latter.

* Since ''Manga/FairyTail'' has a parallel world in it they manage to make use of this without any adaptions. The Hughes they fought in the parallel world was a guy, but the one who they later meet in their own world is female. A more traditional variant happens later on when the 13th constellation Orphiuchus the Serpent-Barer appears during one of the later arcs it is very clearly a female, despite the constellation being male.

Gwen was the princess, and MJ a servant at the Osborn household who helped Peter (possibly a gender flipped version of the {{Panto}} character Buttons.)

She became a CanonImmigrant of sorts when she was released as a convention figure, with her filecard stating she was the male Doc's niece.

** In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E5TheWebPlanet The Web Planet]]", the character Vrestin, leader of the Menoptera war party, was written as male (like all the other Menoptera). However, when casting the character, the cast and crew were impressed with the choreographer hired to create the 'insect movement' and cast her as Vrestin without changing anything in the script besides pronouns, resulting in one of the most powerful ActionGirl supporting characters in 60s ''Who''. Vrestin is male in the Target novelisation of the story (''Doctor Who and the Zarbi''), which is based off the original script.

** The stage play adaptation of "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E5TheRobotsOfDeath The Robots of Death]]" turns Uvanov, Borg, Cass and Dask into women. One would think that this was being done to obscure which character is secretly the pro-robotist terrorist Taren Capel, but the main characters refer to Taren as 'she' from the beginning. Another side effect of this is that it means the only surviving male character of the story is Poul (who exits as a gibbering vegetable).

For instance Lisa was given equivalent roles for Franchise/SherlockHolmes, Johnny "Connie" Appleseed, and Film/{{Amadeus}} (as Sally Eri).

** Master Mold is female. Of course Master Mold has always been a robot that gave birth to other robots, but he was previously referred to as male anyway.

* Samuel Beckett was adamant that this not be done to ''WaitingForGodot''. When he took legal action against an all-female Dutch theater company and lost, he declared a ban on ''all productions of his plays'' in The Netherlands. When asked by the press on why he felt so strongly about this matter, Beckett replies "Because women don't have prostates," referring to one of the characters in the play's prostate disease. Female casts have still gone ahead, but not without having to wrangle with his estate.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' VideogameRemake for the [[UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable PSP]] has the option to play as a female protagonist. There's also an optional male version of Elizabeth named "Theodore." The fandom has taken this and ran with it in terms of fanart. However, the trope is subverted. The female protagonist looks and acts nothing like the male, having a notably more expressive and cheerful personality. Her social links are also completely different from the original main character. Theodore, while very similar to Elizabeth, is canonically her brother (which can be seen in future games).
