* Hutts in the ''StarWars'' [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Expanded Universe]] are gastropods and therefore functional hermaphrodites (they can both impregnate others and themselves). A given Hutt is usually referred to as "female" when pregnant, otherwise it's a matter of personal preference whether they're called "he" or "she". Many other species also exist. Star Dragons/Duinuogwuin have [[OneGenderRace only one sex]] and take on gendered pronouns for the convenience of bigendered species.

* ''Film/TheSexLifeOfThePolyp'': In this comic short film from 1928, the lecturer has to tell his audience that polyps can be either male or female at will. He is clearly very uncomfortable saying this.

* The futanari (meaning Two-Form) subgenre of {{Hentai}} contains many examples. Japanese artists generally draw futanari of the hermaphrodite variety, while most Western artists tend to combine male genitals with an otherwise female form, a phenomenon commonly known as "dick girls" or "shemales" in English-language fetish circles (even though both terms are considered grave insults when applied to real people.)

Medically speaking, Hermaphrodite is an outdated term, and Intersex ius now generally the accepted medical terminology. Additionally most, but admittedly not all, intersexed people consider hermaphrodite to be a slur, on par with "Tranny" to trans women.

* [[spoiler: Yoite]] from ''Manga/NabariNoOu'' is a hermaphrodite, though it is not used in the fetish-y sense of the word.

* In ''Manga/AstraLostInSpace'' [[spoiler: Luca]] is eventually revealed to be intersex. He identifies as male though, and everyone respects and treats him as his gender.

** Vivec's "Anticipation" in the Dunmer religion is Mephala, a [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] whose sphere is "obscured to mortals" (but is typically associated with [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation, lies, sex, and secrets]]). Mephala is stated to be a hermaphrodite as well, though opposite of Vivec, is typically referred to as female and speaks with a feminine voice. Her statues and other depictions also include female secondary characteristics.

* Vivec from ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' is a hermaphroditic PhysicalGod, though he is typically referred to as male. It's important to his mythic role as the Trickster/Stranger figure, where Sotha Sil is male (Clockwork King of the Three-And-One) and Almalexia is female (Face-Snaked Queen of the Three-And-One). Whether he was a hermaphrodite [[DeityOfHumanOrigin as a mortal]] is a source of debate amongst the fandom and is really only touched upon by [[WordOfGod developer written]] "obscure texts" not in the games themselves.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Sload, the series' race of "slugmen" native to the archipelago of Thras to the southwest of Tamriel, are said to be hermaphrodites. It is believed that they absorb their sexual organs by the time they are capable of surviving on land, and indeed, there is never any mention of a Sload with a given sex.
