* In the {{MUGEN}}-based game ''TheBlackHeart'', [[DeathSeeker Animus]] constantly switches between male and female appearance. Many attacks are "gender-specific", but he automatically changes gender as appropriate when they are performed, so the changes are mostly cosmetic.

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Roy has to don the mystical "Belt of Femininity/Masculinity" to escape a pair of would-be assassins. This is an actual magical item in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', though this one reacts to Remove Curse better. Breaking [[AttractiveBentGender the trend]] slightly, Roy is NOT a beautiful woman, and is still bald. Also a common theme is the fics written in the CrackPairing thread on the forum. And a theme week for avatars every year.

* Microprose's ''Videogame/RexNebularAndTheCosmicGenderBender'' does indeed apply this trope to its title hero, who becomes its heroine. The titular device is used by the planet's all-female population for reproduction in lieu of actual men. When Rex first meets a local woman who doesn't want to kill him on the spot, she assumes he's actually a woman who has used the device. Rex has to convince her that he's a real man by doing the stereotypical "manly" things, like knowing what a torque wrench is and having no idea how to set a table.

*** In Loki's [[Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard solo book]], while male most of the time, they can and do flip gender at will. They spent weeks in female form infiltrating Lorelei's band of thieves, then a few issues later flipped genders AGAIN to gain the trust of the Angels, in an all-female society, and didn't bother to switch back for the rest of the miniseries. Odin even refers to them as his child who is both his son and daughter at least on two occasions.

* A surprising number of examples exist in Rumiko Takahashi’s first major series "Anime/UruseiYatsura".
** In episode 68 “The Groom’s Name Is Ryuunosuke” the alien princess Kurama tries to use a gender changing cannon on the resident [[WholesomeCrossdresser Wholesome Crossdresser]] into a real man, unfortunately through a series of mishaps Ataru is turned into a female instead.

* While uncommon, Thor fanfics where Loki turns into a woman are not too hard to find. It’s usually explained [[spoiler: by the fact that he’s a frost giant]] and inspired by Norse myths of the gender-changing god (see the "Norse" entry in the "Mythology" tab). [[http://savu0211.deviantart.com/gallery/43010983?offset=24 (All) Father Loki]] is one such fic.

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': In the anime, there's an episode where Natsumi is turned into a boy accidentally, while something similar happens to Fuyuki, who becomes a girl, in the manga. In both cases though, they return to normal at the end of a single story.
** In an in-game crossover quest with the mobile rpg ''Kemono Friends'', it's the Keroro Platoon themselves who are turned into human girls. This is used for a longer in-game storyline and they can be used as standard party members even outside of that quest. Unlike the stories in the manga and anime, it follows the FirstLawOfGenderBending, with the Keroro platoon never going back to normal in the game's story, although they learn a way to do it. The characters also follow the ThirdLawOfGenderBending to various degrees, with them all dressing as girls, and quickly becoming used to being girls, in spite of Keroro's initial shock, and Giroro's continuous denial. Giroro and Dororo even completely change their speech patterns to more feminine ones, while Keroro boasts to the player about how she makes a perfect girl in her self description.

Note that the definition of "gender" being used here (and in most TVTropes trope names) refers to both a character's ''physical sex'' and their [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gender_identity gender identity]] with the female version of the character almost always being more extensively gender-coded than the male version.

* When IDW comics started their ''[[TheTransformersIDW Transformers]]'' comic, it was decided that [[OneGenderRace there would only be male Cybertronians]]. When they decided to include female transformer Arcee into the universe, they decided ''not'' to {{retcon}} their decision, and so they made Arcee the victim of a forced alteration by a MadScientist specifically to introduce gender to the race. S/he's understandably pissed off about it.
