* There was an episode of Series/StepByStep where [=JT=] Lambert dismisses the idea of female mechanics before sending his car to get fixed by a mechanic named "Sam," who's considered to be the best mechanic in town (and who [=JT=] assumes is a guy). It's not until JT meets Sam in person that he learns that Sam is actually a girl (her real name is "Samantha"). JT also discovers that they actually have a lot in common besides cars and mechanics (such as both of them being big fans of the Green Bay Packers)--as a result, they develop feelings for each other and even become boyfriend-and-girlfriend.

* In 1988, British girls' comic ''Bunty'' ran a story called "The Seven Sisters", in which a young girl named Emily travels around Victorian England searching for her six siblings, the oldest of whom is named Pat. For most of the story, Emily believes Pat is short for Patricia - and the title leads the reader to make the same assumption. However, in the final instalment, Emily and her sister, Mary, meet a young man named Patrick who turns out to be the missing sibling.

* The true identity of the Imperator Librarius in ''Videogame/BlazBlue'' turns out to be a female, [[spoiler:Jun and Ragna's long-lost sister Saya]] a fact disguised by the masculine sounding title. Less so in the original Japanese where the title is the gender-neutral "Mikado."

* Alluka from ''Manga/HunterXHunter''. Turns out that the second youngest "brother" in the Zoldyck family is a girl (or possibly a male to female {{transsexual}}). Not important to the story, but it had fans in an uproar. Made more confusing by the fact that one of the actual brothers, Kalluto, is a case of DudeLooksLikeALady, so fans were already used to expecting a feminine looking figure, especially in that family, to actually belong to a boy.
