Added DiffLines:

* In the 2018 ''Series/{{Lost In Space|2018}}'' reboot, Dr. Zachary Smith is now a woman played by Creator/ParkerPosey. [[spoiler: In a subversion, it actually turns out that "Dr. Smith" is a con woman who stole the identity of this continuity's Zachary Smith.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Pope Benedict IX is portrayed as a woman in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E6Extremis Extremis]]". Considering the scandalous nature of his reign, this was probably much safer than portraying him accurately. However, [[spoiler:it's later revealed that nearly the entirety of the episode was part of simulation.]]

* In the original [[UsefulNotes/TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks Bronze Age]] continuity (and, apparently, in the "Post-Zero Hour" continuity), the ComicBook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}' [[TheCommissionerGordon Science Police liaison]] Shvaughn Erin was a woman. The "Five Years Later" continuity retconned her into being a {{Transsexual}} named ''Sean'' Erin, who stopped using [[AdvancedPhlebotinum Pro-Fem]] when he realised [[SuddenlySexuality Element Lad was actually gay]].

** The series as it released is gender flipped compared to [[WhatCouldHaveBeen the scenario originally planned]]: Saber herself was originally going to be a male character and servant of a {{Meganekko}} who was the basis of [[DecompositeCharacter Shirou and Rin]]. The original scenario was eventually turned into a 12-minute long [=OVA=] called ''Anime/FatePrototype''.

*** The [[GagSeries Gag Manga]] ''Learning With Manga!'' that accompanies ''Fate/Grand Order'' has 3 servants that were created for it, one of which, the Berserker (whose true name was revealed to be Paul Bunyan) has been added to the game. The other two, a Rider and an Assassin, have yet to have their True Names revealed, but it's heavily implied that this trope applies to them as well, since their descriptions and actions hint that they are [[spoiler: Georges Méliès]] and [[spoiler: J Edgar Hoover]], respectively.

* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'': [[HistoricalDomainCharacter Kijima Matako and Imai Nobume]] are women, but their original historical counterparts Kijima Matabei and Imai Noburou respectively are male.

to:

* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'': [[HistoricalDomainCharacter Kijima Matako and Imai Nobume]] are women, but their original historical counterparts Kijima Matabei and Imai Noburou respectively are male. This also applies to regular character Kyuubei, whose entire gimmick is that she was RaisedAsTheOppositeGender (ending up similar to the gender of her historical counterpart Juubei), and an arc that has her changing to ''match'' that counterpart genderbends everyone else along with her.

** The first ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' animated series made the homunculus Sloth a female. The manga hadn't introduced Sloth, so the anime used s completely separate character [[spoiler:who was Trisha Elric's homunculus]].

* In ''ComicBook/DarkNightsMetal'', the Dark Multiverse's Earth -11, home of the Drowned, is also a GenderFlip world.



* Billy Lane from season 9 of ''ComicBook/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' is introduced as normal teenage boy who takes on the Slayer role when his town his infested with zombified vampires in the aptly-named ''Billy the Vampire Slayer''. At the very end of the season, he gains a spiritual connection to the Slayer line (making him the very first male Slayer), but nothing ever comes of it and is only used to drive the main plot of the tenth season.
