** If there's ever going to be a fic or discussion about the gender-bent characters, there's a host of accepted names. Twilight Sparkle is Dusk Shine, Rarity is Elusive, Fluttershy is Butterscotch, Rainbow Dash is Rainbow Blitz, Pinkie Pie is Bubble Berry, Spike is Spines (or Barb/Barbara), Discord is Eris, Celestia is Prince Solaris and Luna is Prince Artemis. Only Applejack remains the same.
* ''OsmosisJones'' fan art examples have been seen, including cosplay of a female Thrax.

* Loki is mentioned under Fanverse... as of ''Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard'' Loki's genderfluidity is canon in the comics. So they (sounds weird, still beats 'he/she') will change gender at will for no other reason but because they can or feel like it, and will refer to themself as goddess (and 'she' in the third person) when in their female form and god (and 'he') when in the male one. You're welcome internet!

** This is lampshaded in the [[ParodyEpisode parody title]] Secret Wars Too, for the [[{{ComicBook/SecretWars2015}} 2015 Secret Wars]]. America Chavez and 1602!Kate Bishop are traveling the domains looking for Pizza and come across the Rule 63 Domain and see gender-flipped versions of the MCU Avengers.

** "Five Short Tables" The fourth episode starring Fionna and Cake kicks it up a few notches. [[spoiler: Ice Queen has her own fanfiction with gender-swapped counterparts to the already gender-swapped counterparts, starring Flynn the Human Being, Jacques the Raccoon, and Ice President. Ice Queen's fanfiction has Ice President reading his own stories, starring Lynn the Person and Janet the Fox.]]

Closely related to GenderFlip. When a ''separate character'' is a female knock-off of an existing male character, you have a DistaffCounterpart. [[{{Crossdresser}} Crossdressers]], of course, provide their own version of this. There's a good chance that you'll see the character in question in a GenderedOutfit (like our lovely Maria at right, here).

* ''KoihimeMusou'', an [[{{Eroge}} erotic game]] based on ''Literature/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms'', in which most of the novel's male characters are female. [[spoiler:Diao Chan is now a muscular man ''in bikini'', voiced by Creator/NorioWakamoto.]]
** So are ''SengokuRance'' (partial example, as many characters remain in their original gender, e.g. UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga) and ''Sengoku Hime'', with the UsefulNotes/SengokuJidai as backdrop.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has had a couple of unusual examples where due to the randomness of regeneration, it's possible for a male Time Lord to become his own distaff counterpart (as occurred when The Master regenerated and became Missy), and for a female Time Lord to become the spear counterpart (as occurred with the female Time Lord known as the General who spent one incarnation as a man).

* Through the magic of pitch-adjusting technology, many of the ''Manga/KOn'' songs have been gender-flipped. As have the main four characters. Azusa doesn't seem to be gender-flipped yet since they seem to have been made before she was introduced. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2LhKmsy_M0 Here's]] the Season 1 opening (Cagayake! Boys), and the rest can be found [[http://metanorn.net/2009/05/k-on-genderbender/ here]]. The real kicker? [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome It's actually pretty darn good.]] And then there's the fact that the K-On girls themselves are essentially gender-flipped versions of TheBeatles.

* ''{{Manga/Kuragehime}}'' has Kuranosuke cross-dressing as a hobby. This is justified since his mother is somewhere else. Tsukimi often says that he looks good as a woman, despite her [[DoesNotLikeMen fear of men]].

** In the ''Flashpoint'' arc, the shots in Crime Alley that night killed Bruce. There's still a Batman; though; Thomas Wayne would up becoming the [[DarkerAndEdgier (really) Dark Knight]] as a result. The Joker exists too, as a direct consequence of the same evening: [[spoiler:Martha.]]

* An odd in-game example in ''[[MondayNightCombat Super Monday Night Combat]]'': Unlockable uniforms turn Combat Girl and Megabeth into {{Cosplay}} female versions of the Engineer and Soldier, respectively, from VideoGame/TeamFortress2.
