* For an unknown reason, the Dornish practise of open succession (i.e a firstborn girl inherits before her younger brother) was erased in Series/GameofThrones. This leads to some notable Dornish ladies who rule in their own right being changed into men. In particular, Oberyn refers to his father as being Prince of Dorne before him, when in actual fact his mother was the reigning Princess. And in the books, the head of the delegation Tyrion meets outside King's Landing is a woman.

* In the original ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland2LeChucksRevenge'', when Guybrush calls the LucasArts Help Desk (then [=LucasFilm=] Games Help Desk) on Dinky Island, the phone operator on the other end of the phone appears near him... and it appears to be [[GenderBlenderName a woman named Chester]]! In the redrawn Special Edition, however, Chester the phone operator is now a man. Interestingly, both characters can be found in the Special Edition version, with female Chester appearing in Classic mode and male Chester appearing in the high-definition mode, and both characters even have unique voice actors.

* In the original version of LucasArts' 1990 fantasy adventure game ''VideoGame/{{Loom}}'', the main villain is Chaos, the King of the Dead. As an inhuman undead specter, Chaos' gender is determined only by the other characters' dialogue--and in the original release, they refer to ''him'' and ''he''. In the rewritten talkie PC CD version, however, the dialogue is changed so Chaos becomes ''she''. (This may have occurred in part because Chaos' design was based on the look of [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]].)
