* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' has Master Tigress who, unlike Master Viper, lacks TertiarySexualCharacteristics to indicate any femininity (even her voice actress was initially confused), in addition to a low voice. Taken UpToEleven in the animated series, where her being mistaken for a man (despite her name obviously indicating otherwise) is a RunningGag and she is often subject to FemininityFailure.

* In ''VideoGame/BlazBlueChronophantasma'', [[CampGay Amane]] [[DudeLooksLikeALady Nishiki]] calls [[ACupAngst Noel Vermillion]] the best cross-dresser he's ever seen. Why, she'd be perfect for playing the roles of women in his acting troupe! This enrages the normally ShrinkingViolet Noel enough to cause [[ArtificialHuman her Murakumo Unit]] [[EmotionlessGirl personality to take over]].

* Jaime Lannister gives Brienne of Tarth a lot of shit for this in ''ASongOfIceAndFire'', specifically during the third book. At one point he even suggest she might be a female-to-male transsexual.

\n** 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.

* In ''Literature/DragonBones'', Tisala of Callis has short hair, and a scarred face. She also doesn't look just like any dude, but extremely her ''father'', who, unfortunately, is not a Bishonen, but rather homely, in a way that's tolerable for a man, but defies the beauty ideals for women. She is also as tall as her father, who is considered a tall man. When Ward notices the latter, he pities her, as, he notes, it can't be easy for a woman to be taller than most men. (It takes him some time to notice as he's a GentleGiant, and Tisala's father is just about the height of his shoulders) [[AmazonChaser Doesn't stop Ward from having a crush on her.]]

** In ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]'', Pokémon Coordinator Chaz has a Machoke named [[PunnyName Macherie]], who is female. You wouldn't be able to tell by just looking at her, but he refers to her by female pronouns, and insists on not teaching her Tough moves for contests (preferring Cuteness and Beauty), as she's "too cute" for them.

* [[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.

* In ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'', Marcy was mistaken for a male several times due to her flat chest and short hair. Mostly due to RuleOfFunny, since she wasn't especially unfeminine in appearance, and at least some of it was Al deliberately making fun of her.
