** ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'', in addition to [[CrossOver all of the above]] (and a few more such as [[TheShinsengumi Okita Souji]] and UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga from a gag spinoff of the ''Koha-Ace'' magazine), adds a few of its own, such as Altera, aka UsefulNotes/AttilaTheHun (who is less notable for the gender flip and more for the part where she might actually be an ''alien''), a teenage [[JidaiGeki Minamoto no Yoshitsune]] under his/her youth nickname of Ushiwakamaru, or Jing Ke. Even the two protagonists are stated to be gender-flips of Shirou and Rin design-wise, according to Takeuchi. Then it adds two subversions: UsefulNotes/LeonardoDaVinci, who was a man in life but [[GenderBender somehow turned into the Mona Lisa as a Servant]] and tends to weird out everyone with how much he's ''enjoying'' being a hot chick; and "Orion", who claims to be this to hide that she's actually Artemis herself, who turned the real Orion into a teddy bear and took his place because he's a bit pervy and [[ClingyJealousGirl she didn't want to let him go to all those pretty girls by himself]].

Here's a quick spin on an old story. Flip the male roles to the women and the female roles to the men. If you are in a hurry, you only need to change a few honorifics, pronouns, and maybe a first name or two. And the casting.

If you are able to give it a little more thought, though, you can take this opportunity to explore how there might be a ''[[DoubleStandard difference]]'' in the way things play out with the genders reversed. It's a very old technique of retelling a story; many folk {{Fairy Tale}}s have '''Gender Flip''' variants.

{{Fan Fic}}s that Gender Flip are fairly common (often referred to as 'Genderfuck' or 'GF' stories.) RuleSixtyThree is closely related, but subtly different. A good general rule of thumb is that a RuleSixtyThree character ''looks'' like exactly the same character, as if subjected to GenderBender. Gender Flip characters will often differ from their originals in a great many ways other than the character's sex.

Supertrope of ShesAManInJapan, which is what happens when localization results in a character Gender Flip.

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.

** Sir Bromell, Elaine of Carbonek's knight protector, is an interesting example -- he's a male knight in the baseline arc just like in the legends, and female in the contemporary one (where she and Elaine only exist in Arthur's webcomic).
