Added DiffLines:

Medically speaking, Hermaphrodite is an outdated term, and Intersex ius now generally the accepted medical terminology.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.

* 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.

** 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.

* ''Manga/KnightsOfSidonia'' features Shinatose Izana, a "Third Gendered" human created through bioengineering. This Third Gender is sometimes called "intersex" or "middlesex" due to possessing both male and female characteristics, but it isn't a true hermaphrodite. Instead, when one of these Third Genders falls in love, their body changes into the sex opposite that of their intended, which is implied to be permanent. No word on what happens if two Third Genders fall in love with each other.

* ''Manga/KnightsOfSidonia'' features Shinatose Izana, a true hermaphrodite human created through bioengineering. S/he is in love with the protagonist but he only seems to like women.
** It eventually turns out that the bioengineered intersex people in ''Sidonia'' aren't exactly hermaphrodites, as they can't breed true in their original state but instead metamorphose into one sex or the other depending on circumstances the way some fish and amphibians do.

* 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.
