* The gems in ''Manga/HousekiNoKuni'' have their bodies composed of their namesake minerals, and thus are sexless. In original Japanese, they refer to each other using male pronouns, despite each their behavior ranging from masculine to feminine. The official English translation just tries not using gendered pronouns instead.

* The Crystal Gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' technically have no sex, with the only exception being the [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human]] (and male) Steven, though they all look distinctly female and refer to each other with female pronouns. It's also stated the Steven's mother Rose Quartz specifically had to shapeshift a womb to carry him in and this had never been done before, and his birth resulted in [[DeathByChildbirth her for all intents and purposes death]] since he inherited her gem. And because they've been alive for centuries there are photographs of Gems in period appropriate clothing from the past that appears more masculine, so it's possible they've presented differently to humans in the past.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' has Kyubey. Both the characters and fans generally refer to it as male since it uses Japanese speech patterns and pronouns that suggest a male identity, but it really doesn't seem to be either one, [[spoiler:being a StarfishAlien whose true form is hinted to be something entirely different than what we see on screen]].

* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'': When the future [[MagnificentBitch Visser One]] first sees humans she describes them as "gender differentiated, like [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Andalites]] and [[SlaveMooks Hork-Bajir]]". In contrast, Yeerks are a race of PuppeteerParasite slugs who reproduce by asexual budding, though they are generally referred to by their host's gender, or the gender that the narrator thinks of them as.

In contrast, Yeerks are a race Hork-Bajir]]," thus seemingly to indicate that [[PuppeteerParasite Yeerks]], [[HorrorHunger Taxxons]] and [[SlaveRace Gedds]] aren't. From what we know of PuppeteerParasite slugs who Yeerks, this makes some sense--they reproduce by asexual budding, though they are generally [[BizarreAlienReproduction three individuals merging together, then dissolving into hundreds of babies]]--but they're always referred to by with gendered pronouns, either of their host's gender, host or the of whatever gender that the (usually human) narrator thinks of them as.

* Landorus of BlackAdventures says, "I am no more female than I am male. And I don't have any -parts-, so... it's ironic that I was once worshipped as the 'Kami of Fertility.'" after Professor Juniper asks if Landorus is female due to their feminine appearance.

* This is the case of the Flatwoods Monster in Fanfic/TheMansionverse, as far as anyone can determine, though he's referred to with male pronouns for simplicity's sake. Pragmatically, the Hatbox Ghost uses this as an opportunity to have Flatty try on both men and women's hat (not that either seem to really fit him).

* Artificial Intelligence program EDI of ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' technically has no gender but utilizes a voice in a range that listeners would categorize as feminine. In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' EDI transfers into a [[fembot]] body and the crew identifies and interacts with her as a female being, referring to EDI as her and she.
