** [[spoiler:The Mechanist]] in the DLC expansion Automatron for ''VideoGame/Fallout4''.
*** In contrast to the exclusively male PowerArmor Enclave Soldiers in Fallout 3, the New Vegas mod ''For the Enclave'' seems to have more female soldiers in armor than male. Most of them also [[WelcomeToCorneria repeatedly claim that General Jamison will lead them to glory, almost as often as NCR Troopers will complain about how patrolling the Mojave almost makes them wish for a nuclear winter.]]

*** It's not possible to tell if the [[EliteMooks power armored guards]] seen on board the ''[[CoolAirship Prydwen]]'' or encountered on patrols throughout the Commonwealth are male or female until they speak to you. Like in ''Fallout 3'', it can be a bit of a surprise sometimes to hear a female voice coming out of the [[RageHelm helmet's]] speakers.

* From the ''Series/{{Bones}}'' episode "Fire in the Ice", Albie the poker ring organizer. Booth is very shocked. Perhaps because he [[HeyItsThatGuy recognizes her]] from his ''Series/{{Buffy|the Vampire Slayer}}'' days?

* In ''VideoGame/HotTinRoofTheCatThatWoreAFedora'', we are served a double dose of this trope. Private Inspector Jones is respected and well-established in the police force, and depending on your dialog choices, you can go quite a long way before someone call ''her'' by full name, "Emma Jones". Her figure being little more than a bloky [[FedoraOfAsskicking badass fedora]] over a blocky [[BadassLongcoat trenchcoat]] doesn't exactly help in identifying her gender, especially if you have met her girlfriend before the reveal. Special mention for weasely dialog writing as said girlfriend calls her "Em", wich can look like she's simply hesitating when speaking. The second serving of this trope is delivered shortly after, when talking with your sidekick, the cat Frankie. While you had previously the chance to learn that Frankie is [[TokenMinority the only cat to have made it into the police force ever]], you probably did not suspect that "Frankie" was short for "Francine".

* Played with a little bit in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'', if the player fights her as [[Franchise/MetalGear Solid Snake]] on Shadow Moses Island. In his Codec transmission, Snake remarks to Otacon that he's fighting "a woman in a power suit." Otacon is baffled as to how Snake can possibly know she's a woman. Snake's comments in this transmission, and in the one he makes if he fights her in her Zero Suit, are the main reason Snake/Samus has become a popular ship among the fans.
** Hint: he figured it out by watching how she walks [[MaleGaze and checking out the anatomy involved]]. This is a shout out to how the player finds Meryl Silverburgh in disguise in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''--exaggerated hip sway.
** These conversations may also be subtle foreshadowing of the Power-Suited AmazonBrigade that would appear in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4''. It's not the only thing Hideo Kojima foreshadowed in that game.

** You think them being [[ToyShip babies/kids has stopped the Lambo X I-Pin]] [[{{Shipping}} shippers]]?
* Haruka in ''Anime/SailorMoon'', although there's no romance arc beyond her flirting with Usagi for the fun of it; she's already taken... by a woman, which helped hide her gender. Though due the fact that she appeared in the anime in her Senshi form before the reveal at the end of the episode introducing her, viewers are not as shocked as the characters. (It should be noted that before this episode, Uranus and Neptune DID show up in senshi form, but all the viewer was shown was a silhouette and the credits only listed them as "Mysterious Senshi 1 and 2"
** Also, for the first few Uranus and Neptune appearances in the original [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]], they were perceived not as two mysterious senshi, but as a mysterious senshi/Tuxedo Mask pair; and Haruka's flirting with Usagi was much heavier. It wasn't until after they joined with the other senshi that Uranus was perceived as a woman rather than a man.

* ''LightNovel/KinosJourney'': [[AmbiguousGender Kino]] is a girl. The anime doesn't tell you until the fourth episode and you don't find out for quite a while in the non-English novels, before which most viewers tend to either assume she's a boy or think "But he could be...". The people who figured it out before hand got to give themselves a good pat on the back when her gender was finally revealed.]]
** Strangely, it is Japan in which this is easy to guess due to seemingly CrossdressingVoices, the English dub gives the character a much more ambiguous voice.
*** Though it's not uncommon in anime for adolescent males to have distinctly effeminate voice.
