Supertrope of ShesAManInJapan, which is specifically about ''localizations'' changing a character's gender. Distinguished from CrosscastRole, in which the actor is the opposite sex of the character. For example, a production of ''{{Hamlet}}'' that (as in Shakespeare's own day) had Ophelia played by a boy would be a CrosscastRole, but a production with a male actor playing a male ''character'' named "Ophelius" and referred to in the text with male pronouns would be a Gender Flip.

* The anime to ''Manga/FruitsBasket'' accidentally did this. Late in the manga, [[spoiler:Akito]] is revealed to have been RaisedAsTheOppositeGender. The anime is only based on the first arc and was released before this revelation. [[spoiler:Akito]] has a [[spoiler:male]] voice in the anime. The final episode also showed [[spoiler:her with a flat chest]].

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/HeroRealms'' does this a bit literally. Character Packs are custom starting decks based on traditional Fantasy RPG classes. Each pack comes with Character Cards and Health Trackers, with each having one side featuring a male version of the Character, and on the other side with a female version. Other than aesthetics, the gameplay is not effected.

** Season 4's "Luck Be A Lady", introduces Becky "Hazard" Sharp, who is female in both the series and the comics ... except the details of how her WindsOfDestinyChange powers work are altered slightly to essentially make her a gender flip of Amos Fortune, specifically the way he's presented in ''[[Comicbook/JusticeLeagueInternational Justice League Europe]]''.

* The raunchy doujin series-turned-serialization ''Teisou Gyakuten Sekai''[[note]]Translated as ''World of Reverse Gender Roles'' as a doujin and ''The World of Reverse Morals'' as a published series[[/note]] has its protagonists stumble into a world where the toleration of sexual attitudes for men and women are flipped. The girls are mainly genderflips of perverted teenage boy characters with [[AManIsNotAVirgin virginity issues]], and the main character himself flips common hentai tropes to see if they still work the same (with a mental genderflip of himself demonstrating, even). The serialization is [[BleachedUnderpants cleaned up a bit]], but its female protagonist still makes note of the flips between her world and this new one.



* ''Manga/{{Teppu}}'' is structured like a typical {{Shounen}} martial arts or sports series, but in this case, both TheHero and TheRival / ArrogantKungFuGuy are teenage girls. In fact, a significant portion of the cast fit common Shounen archetypes, just with women filling the roles instead of men.



* In the ''Series/ADifferentWorld'' episode "The Little Mister", which spoofed the then-upcoming 1992 elections, following a battle of the sexes argument with Whitley, Dwayne falls asleep and dreams of a world where women are the ones in power, holding and running for high-ranking political office, while men are the ones treated like nothing but accessories whose opinions don't matter.



* The {{Creator/Lifetime}} series ''Series/StrongMedicine'' gave viewers a ''male'' HelloNurse surrounded by smart, distinguished ''female'' doctors, rather that what is typically seen. Additionally, Andy's (one of the doctors in question) husband was the stay-at-home spouse and primary caretaker of their two girls who had spent their marriage packing up and moving to follow her military career.
