* In the Sandra Brown novel ''Lethal'', the criminal kingpin known as "The Bookkeeper" is never referred to by any gender, which hides the reveal that [[spoiler: not only is The Bookkeeper female, but she's [[TheDogWasTheMastermind the seemingly innocent wife of one of the agents investigating her crimes.]]

* In Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice series, the Radchaai language does not distinguish genders. This is done in the text by using female pronouns and relationships (eg she/her, mother/sister/grandmother) and male titles (lord/sir/etc) for every character.

* In ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'' it is mentioned that someone in Class-E has higher bloodlust than even [[spoiler: Itona]] the pronouns used are gender neutral despite the shot seemingly focusing on [[spoiler: Nagisa, the protagonist]]. This is used to hide that it's actually talking about [[spoiler: Kayano]]. In this case many fan translations were fooled and used the pronoun appropriate to the person the shot seemed to be focused on.

* Practically ubiquitous with the ChooseYourOwnAdventure genre of books, as mentioned above. With the exception of the recent rerelease, which tends to avoid showing you, illustrations tend to make it obvious what gender "you" are, as well as about what age. (In some of them, you were clearly an adult; in most, you were a kid.)
** Although the text often makes gender very vague or eliminates it. One example specified a character entering "the bathroom for the opposite sex" and gave a potential romantic interest a gender-neutral name.
*** In one book, however, you were obviously part of a Women's Olympic swim team

* In one Website/EpicTales story, Diana needs help from a friend to hack into CODIS. While talking about this friend both Diana and John keep referring to this friend with the word friend, rather then using 'he' or 'she'. It's so noticeable that it's obviously intentional.
