* In the Brazilian soap opera [[ChocolateComPimenta "Chocolate com Pimenta"]] ("Chocolate with Pepper", known in English as "Pepper Chocolate"), there was a woman who suffered from a serious illness and promised to St. Bernardette she'd adopt a girl if she was cured. A maid working for the woman had a son and desired for him a better life so she passed the boy as a girl with no family and claimed the "girl's" name to be Bernardette. Not caring about her foster child more than required to keep good on her promise, she spent years unknowingly raising a boy until the truth came out and Bernardette renamed himself "Bernardo". The woman then started to think everything bad that happened to her was divine punishment for not keeping her promise.

* Ellie May in ''Series/TheBeverlyHillbillies'' was raised as a boy by Jed after her mother died, leaving her no maternal influence. As Jed himself says, by the time Granny moved in with them she had already become too boyish to be made ladylike, causing them a fair amount of headache whenever they attempt to get her to settle down.

* [[spoiler:Viscount Leos von Liebowitz]] of [[{{Warhammer}} Nuln]], in the Creator/KimNewman novel ''Beasts in Velvet''. Spoilered as it's a murder mystery, the relevant character is raised as a boy because [[spoiler:his elder sister, Countess-to-be Emmanuelle von Liebowitz declared she didn't want a sister taking the attention from her]]. ''He'' was repeatedly beaten if he showed any signs of femininity, including an awareness that he had girl-parts. [[FreudianExcuse As a result]], he became a serial killer, targeting whores, while wearing his sister's green velvet cloak and dress. The truth of his gender was only discovered after his death.

* ''Split Heirs'', a comic fantasy novel by Lawrence Watt-Evans and Esther M. Freisner tells the story of a queen who gives birth to triplets, 2 boys and a girl. However, her husbands people have the belief that multiple births stem from infidelity, so she asks her loyal retainer to take away the daughter and youngest son to be raised elsewhere, so the king would never find out about the triplets birth. Alas, the retainer messes up, and take the two boys instead. By the time the queen discovers the mistake, it is too late, and she is forced to raise her daughter as a prince, and heir to the throne.

* In real life, David Reimer had his penis destroyed as a baby during a circumcision. John Money (a psychologist) then encouraged and oversaw David being sexually re-assigned to female and raised as such. John Money reported the case as a success, and used it as evidence that gender identity is environmental. However, it was later revealed that David had never identified as female, and began living as a male at age 15. He suffered from suicidal depression starting at 13, and eventually killed himself at 38.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sporus Sporus]] was a slave boy who had the misfortune of resembling Nero's dead wife Poppaea. Nero had Sporus castrated, forced him to dress and act like a woman, forcibly married him, and called him Poppaea. After Nero was killed Sporus was also forced to marry Nymphidius Sabinus (the Captain of the Praetorian Guard) and then Emperor Otho. Afterwards Emperor Vitellius planned on having a gladiator rape Sporus for the entertainment of the public, so Sporus committed suicide to avoid this fate and likely to put an end to the abuse he kept suffering. Sporus was less than twenty when he died, so he would likely have still been a child when Nero first castrated him.

* Seishirou Tsugumi from ''{{Manga/Nisekoi}}'', was raised as a boy because Claude, her guardian, ''couldn't tell that she was a girl''. She just sorta went along with it because she didn't particularly care. Somehow, despite her now being a teenager with a very obviously female figure, Claude ''still'' thinks she's a boy.

* When Rindou Ranmaru shows up in ''Manga/BinbogamiGa'', people specifically bring up this trope (the very title of the chapter/episode is "Is This That So-Called Girl-Raised-As-A-Boy Pattern?"). It's actually not ''quite'' the same thing -- Ranmaru has never been told she ''is'' a boy, just forced to live like one.
