* Melissa Scott's novel ''Shadow Man'' involved humanity becoming a five-sexed race as a side-effect of adaptation to faster-than-light space travel. Of course, not everyone accepted it.

* Satan in the Creator/GoNagai series ''Manga/{{Devilman}}'' is portrayed this way, Nagai considering it appropriate due to being an angel, who are often considered sexless. Then again, could have been done just for shock value. The main villain of ''Manga/DevilmanLady'' got the same treatment.

* 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 up by [[WordOfGod developer written]] "obscure texts" not in the games themselves.

* Vivec from ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' is a hermaphroditic PhysicalGod, though whether he was both male and female as a mortal is debated by fans, and depends if you consider out of game texts written by devs to be canon.

* In ''OrionsArm'' humanity has six "normal" genders, two are intersex (Ferm, Merm), one is a fully functional Hermaphrodite (Herm), and the sixth has no genitalia (Neut). And that's just humans.

* Some Manga/SoulEater fanfictions use this as a method of explaining [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Crona's]] AmbiguousGender. It may or may not be used for FetishFuel too, depending on [[RuleThirtyFour what kind of fanfiction you're reading]].

* The [[NoNameGiven never-named]] Alpha Centaurian ambassador who plays a major role in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' story "The Curse of Peladon" and its sequel "The Monster of Peladon". He uses male pronouns, but is described as a hermaphrodite, looks like a penis in a cloak, was played by a male actor under the costume, and was voiced by a female actor trying to sound like a CampGay man.

For most fictional purposes a hermaphrodite is an individual that's both male and female; specifically, one that has both male and female genitals. Biologists don't use the word that way, but this is fiction, not biology. In real life, however, a human that has fully developed male and female genitals is extremely rare (there's never been an actual confirmed instance). Humans with sexually ambiguous genitals and/or incompletely developed ones (or other biological ambiguities between male and female, such as mixed glands, hormonal balances, or chromosomal sexes) are called intersex, not hermaphrodites, and are relatively common (one rough estimate is 1 in every 2000 children born). [[http://www.isna.org/ More information can be found here.]]

Intersex people usually identify as either a man or woman (although some are non-binary), and being intersex does not automatically make you a "man and a woman." Fictional depictions of intersex people often run into UnfortunateImplications and CriticalResearchFailure.

Intersex people usually identify as either a man or woman (although some are non-binary), and being intersex does not automatically make you a "man and a woman." In fact, biologically speaking they would still be considered one or the other depending on the presence of a Y-chromosome. Fictional depictions of intersex people often run into UnfortunateImplications and CriticalResearchFailure.

--> She wears lace and she wears flannel, she watches Football ''and'' the LifetimeChannel! What's that bulge under her nighty? It must be Hermaphrodite!
