Added DiffLines:

* Both Tohru and Iruru mistook Kobayashi for a man when they first met her in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid''. She even undergoes a GenderBender at one point, and absolutely nothing about her outwards appearance changes.

Added DiffLines:

* Because of her androgynous appearance, Eleven in ''Series/StrangerThings'' is briefly mistaken for a boy in the first episode. This later leads to her case getting mixed up with Will's during Hopper's investigation.

** Ser Jaime Lannister thinks Brienne of Tarth is far too masculine-looking for a woman. She's very tall, wears her hair short, and dresses in men's clothing and armor and even bows rather than curtsies.

* The plot of ''Film/{{Tomboy}}'' is about a ten year old girl who moves to a town and decides to [[SweetPollyOliver try and pass as male]]. Her short hair, androgynous looks, and prepubescent physique means that she looks boyish all the time. [[spoiler:She's only found out when she gets into a fight with a boy and his parents talk to her parents]].



* When Jesse from ''Literature/BridgeToTerabithia'' first meets Leslie he is unable to tell her gender due to her short hair, unisex clothes, and GenderBlenderName. Her tomboyishness is a point of contention amongst the others in town because she doesn't fit what's expected for a girl. The 2007 film adaptation gave her a GirlinessUpgrade and made her wear bright clothes due to [[SocietyMarchesOn what's unusual changing]] since the books release.

* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'': Ed is a girl, which the rest of the cast doesn't realize until the very end of the episode in which she's introduced. Given that she's young enough to be prepubescent and her personality is halfway between FeralChild and {{Cloudcuckoolander}} anyway, it doesn't actually affect her characterization much.

* ''{{Hellsing}}'': Sir Integra, who dresses in a masculine fashion and is referred to as "sir" despite being female. It's explained that this is deliberate on her part, to make people more accepting of her taking the traditionally male role of the head of the Hellsing Organization. Nevertheless, this wasn't as apparent at the beginning of the manga, due the fact that she had an impressive bust, but started to shrink in later parts of the manga, and became small chested.

* Very early on in ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'', where Haruhi is assumed to be male because of her very unflattering appearance. This continues through the rest of the series, though a proper clothing upgrade makes her into more of a {{bifauxnen}}.

* [[ProperLady Liechtenstein]] of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' [[ImportantHairCut cuts her hair short]] to mimic her adopted brother Switzerland. When the two go walking while wearing the same military uniform, an old lady compliments Switzerland on having an adorable younger brother. [[ACupAngst Cue Liechtenstein groping her chest in shock.]] This isn't as much of a problem when she wears dresses and [[HairDecorations a ribbon.]]

* ''Literature/AmericanGods'': in the narrative of the first people to come to North America (the ''first'' first people, not Columbus), one of the characters is a scout, technically female, who dresses like a man, has a male occupation, and a wife. She is accepted in this role and has a senior place in the tribe.
** Neil Gaiman [[ShownTheirWork shows his work]] with this one: historically, many Native American cultures had a practice by which a male or female person could fully embrace the duties, roles and appearance of the opposite and from that point on be treated as if they were born and lived the other gender.

* [[spoiler:Elh Melizée]] from ''VideoGame/{{Solatorobo}}'', at least according to the characters in-game. This even allows Red to help her sneak into an all-boys magic school, insisting to the Ritual Master that she "couldn't be any more of a boy" - which, of course, annoys her immensely, since by that point she was quite fond of him.
** [[ViewerGenderConfusion Viewers tend to get confused]] when first introduced to her: since she wears a SkirtOverSlacks and has an [[{{Bifauxnen}} androgynous face]], most players assumed she was female, yet other characters insisted on referring to her as a boy and she [[{{Bokukko}} uses masculine pronouns in the Japanese version]], so players assumed they must've been mistaken. Then it's revealed that she ''is'' a girl after all; that SkirtOverSlacks look is apparently ''boys' clothing'' in the Shepherd Republic, which is why the other characters thought she was a boy. She never bothered to correct anyone because [[YouNeverAsked they just never asked which she was]].
* [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Adel]]. The only clue that she is a she is that she is called a sorceress.

* Miyabi from ''VideoGame/SenranKagura'' is apparently this to the point where she constantly gets mistaken for a man and [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer her squealing fangirls as well as childhood friend Imu won't let her catch a break]]. Her story mode has her trying her very hardest to make herself more feminine. It ends up backfiring. Of course, this is very much an InformedAttribute since she lives in a WorldOfBuxom and her chest makes it obvious that she's a girl. The InformedAttribute does get lampshaded in one of the games where she asks Yozakura if there is anything feminine about her, and all what Yozakura can answer is her breasts.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'', the JerkJock Lightning thinks that BrawnHilda Jo is a guy, leading to an amusing MistakenForGay situation when, in a life-threatening situation, Jo laments that she's going to die without ever having kissed a guy. Eventually he finds out that Jo is a girl and is completely shocked.
** It should be noted that Lightning's surprise wasn't justified, since Jo had already tried to tell him several times that she was a girl - he just didn't believe her until her elimination.
