Basically, a couple consisting of a very feminine-looking/acting boy and a very masculine-acting/looking girl. Often comes from pairing the ActionGirl with the NonActionGuy and with doses of {{Crossdresser}}, {{Bifauxnen}}, AmbiguousGender, AttractiveBentGender, UnsettlingGenderReveal, ViewerGenderConfusion, DudeLooksLikeALady, EvenTheGuysWantHim and EvenTheGirlsWantHer. Common in GenderBender and FreakyFridayFlip series. Occasionally, {{House Husband}}s and their wives will fall under this trope.

Compare to SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl, PitbullDatesPuppy, and ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend. SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan and TomboyAndGirlyGirl work on a similar principle, but with two characters of the same gender. The UselessBoyfriend trope can be the result of this, but not always. Most likely are {{Cultural Rebel}}s. Subtrope of StereotypeFlip.

* ''Anime/PeterPanNoBouken'', the Anime/WorldsMasterpieceTheater take on ''Peter Pan'', has the series' versions of Tiger Lily (a mix of ActionGirl and {{tsundere}}) and John Darling (a ShrinkingViolet who doubles as her DoggedNiceGuy) and even dedicates [[ADayInTheLimelight a whole episode]] to their potential relationship.

* Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', aesthetically, at least. Jaime is said to be so handsome it [[{{Bishonen}} spills over into "pretty" territory]] (although he's also widely regarded as [[MasterSwordsman the greatest living swordsman]] [[spoiler:prior to losing his right hand, at least]]), while Brienne is known for her ''un''attractiveness and her un-lady-like habits of wearing armor, wielding a sword, and beating the crap out people who piss her off. They form something of an uneasy BattleCouple in ''A Storm of Swords''.

* ''Androgynous'', by Music/TheReplacements and also covered by CrashTestDummies, is a rather sweet song about a couple who like to dress as the opposite sex.

Added DiffLines:

*Peanut and Grape Jelly Sandwich of ''Webcomic/{{Housepets}}'' have this sort of dynamic. Peanut is a soft-hearted and sweet comic book nerd whereas Grape is a tough and sarcastic tomboy.
