* Kanata of ''LightNovel/KumoDesuGaNaniKa'' was originally a male before being reincarnated as a girl. She still identified as a man in her mind which resulted in her suppressing a growing affection for her male friend Shun. After a near-death experience where Shun saved her she started identifying as female and shortly after started giving Shun hints about her feelings.

* Not surprisingly there's a hentai manga about this. A male student finds himself [[BodySurf body hopping]] into females at certain points in time, and he uses every occasion to sleep with a local JerkJock Cassanova. Though as soon as he's left the girl's body ([[NoEndorHolocaust Paying no attention to the girl who just had been taken over as she's usually in a daze of orgasmic pleasure]]) it turns into HoYay as he pleads his love for the jock.
* Subverted in ''SekainohateDeAimashou'' when a HumanAlien prince slips an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent a GenderBender potion only to get IncompatibleOrientation instead.

* In the ''{{Paradise}}'' setting, a number of stories feature involuntarily-gender-changed characters falling in love with someone of the gender they used to be, though they did not necessarily know them before the change. (In "After Hours", [[spoiler:a woman who used to be a man fell in love with a man who used to be a woman]].)

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' comedy skit "The Curse of Fatal Death" has the Doctor regenerating four times in ten minutes -- his companion (and fiancée copes) with seeing her beloved turn into RichardEGrant, Jim Broadbent and Hugh Grant, but when the final regeneration is female she sorrowfully announces that the Doctor is, quite literally, not the man she fell in love with. The Master, rather keen on the Doctor's new Joanna Lumley-shaped body, is only too happy to step in.

* Played with and ultimately defied in ''WebComic/{{Exiern}}'': Denver thought Tiffany's GenderBent nature and general loathing of his female body meant his (Denver's) feeling would remain one-sided. Then he learns Tiffany's origin story and learns [[spoiler: Typhan-Knee was gay]] and thinks things have worked out for the best. Tiffany chews him out for assuming that now that that's in the open, he'd be "free" to be in a relationship with Denver, ignoring Tiffany's still prominent issues with his involuntary gender bending. Ultimately averted (at least for now) when Denver chooses to stay behind and [[spoiler: learn to control his newly-discovered [[ChangelingFantasy draconic nature]].]]

* ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'' has it's own way with this trope. [[spoiler: Homura]] has an unstable gender, but mentally identifies himself as male. At the start of the story he was physically male, and had been trying to find an Ashikabi who was female. However, as time went on his body began reacting to main character Minato, who is a heterosexual male. As a result, [[spoiler:Homura]] began tuning into a woman. It's not clear if the transformation was complete by the time he was finally "winged", but the character now has breasts as well as more feminine features, and is pretty annoyed and uncomfortable with the whole situation. Poor, guy/girl.
