* ''[[XWingSeries Starfighters of Adumar]]'' has the infamous "Escape Done In Drag". Wedge ordered his three pilots to get him four sets of women's clothing, in which they snuck into a base while a diversion went on. On Adumar, women can take all the combat positions men take, but Wedge and his pilots were male and being hunted by pretty much the entire city, so a group of four women would be less suspect. Hobbie cemented the disguise by doing a [[ScreamingWoman convincing]] [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl scream]].

* The existence of this trope in the popular imagination winds up getting the protagonist of ''BreakfastOnPluto'' (a possibly transgender WholesomeCrossdresser) in a lot of trouble. Kitten is not a violent person at all, but when a nightclub she visits is bombed, the authorities suspect that the biologically-male Irish person in women's clothing is an IRA operative, and she's arrested and treated very badly.

* ClassicalMythology: Achilles' mother did this to him in an attempt to keep him from the war. Naturally, the plan fell apart when Odysseus presented all the girls he was hiding among with gifts and Achilles was the only one to immediately go for the sword.

* In the "Moonlight Sonata" arc in ''DetectiveConan'', after a young boy named [[spoiler:Seiji Asou]] escaped the strange death of the rest of his family because [[IllBoy he was hospitalized in Tokyo]], [[spoiler: he was adopted by an old friend of his dead family (which let him stay unnoticed), and grew up into [[HospitalHottie a handsome]] [[DudeLooksLikeALady (and girly-looking)]] [[HospitalHottie doctor]]. He then returned to his island under the false name Narumi Asai ([[AlternateCharacterReading not totally false, actually]])--as a female doctor--to investigate their murders and have his {{Revenge}}. [[MagnificentBastard He got away with almost all of it]], confronting and then killing all the culprits while leaving strange music-related messages... but when he was caught by Conan, Seiji set his family's old house on fire and [[DrivenToSuicide stayed inside as it burned down]], [[FaceDeathWithDignity calmly playing the Moonlight Sonata in his father's old piano]] despite Conan's desperate pleas for him to live.]] Note: he, like most villains in the series, was portrayed [[SympatheticMurderer with so much sympathy]] that viewers would, at worst, consider him an AntiVillain. Strangely, in Italy, due to homosexual connotations, the trope wasn't spelled out (but still implied) to get it past the {{Media Watchdog}}s.
