** In ''Discworld/FeetOfClay'', it's revealed that [[spoiler: Cheery Littlebottom]] is a female dwarf to the reader fairly quickly. As a lampoon on OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame, Dwarven culture is [[strike:so male-centric that females typically behave and masquerade as men]] stated that all dwarves are considered dwarves without distinction of sex. This can cause confusion when two dwarves like each other and need to delicately find out if they have met a friend or a mate. Angua detects her secret and coaches her to slowly adopt feminine behavior, which causes a lot of confusion among her other co-workers. She ultimately comes out of the closet and [[spoiler: renames herself Cherry.]] She also starts wearing dresses. Chainmail ones with an axe... she said she was ''female'', she never said she wasn't a ''dwarf.'' She also keeps her beard for the same reason.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Literature/InspectorMorse'' short story "Neighbourhood Watch", Morse and Lewis stake out a house where Morse is sure there's going to be a burglary, the burglars having ensured the victim is out for the night, and see nothing more suspicious than a woman delivering free newspapers. It later transpires the apparent victim had ''also'' deduced he was being targeted, but had taken it a step further: he knew [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow that the burglars knew Morse knew]], and had therefore changed their plans. Just in case he was wrong, he also hired a private detective to keep an eye on things, whom he describes to Morse as a judo black-belt who could easily have taken care of any trouble. Morse is surprised they didn't spot him, and the victim corrects him; ''she'' was the paper woman.


Added DiffLines:

* In one of the vignettes in ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} Steam-Tech'', describing a new fad at {{Oxbridge}} for chivalric duelling with blunt swords (the relevant "tech" being applying 19th century metalsmithing to armour), a masked combatant who wins two out of three fights removes their helm to reveal "the well-known feminist agitator Miss Viola Dalrymple".

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheFlightOfDragons'', the [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits band of heroes]] is saved from a pack of thieves by a Robin Hood wannabe. When the knight in the group goes to thank the mysterious archer, "he" takes off "his" cap, and the audience is treated to a slow-motion shot of long, glistening red hair as it flows down below her waist. The knight is speechless.

* {{Downplayed}} in ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}:'' in one of the last books, the team has to see the governor, and narrator Marco admits that he doesn't know much about "him." The governor is a woman. (For what it's worth, an earlier book established that their state had a male governor, but then, a few years have apparently passed in the meantime.)

* Done in ''Series/PrisonBreak'', where it turns out that the Vice President of the United States, the primary figure behind TheConspiracy at the heart of the show, is a woman named Caroline Reynolds in the show's universe. Interestingly, the show manages to pull this trope off in reverse, giving the audience several glimpses of Reynolds as a sweet-faced suburban woman tending her garden (just crediting her as "Garlic Cutter" in her earliest appearances) before revealing that she's actually the Vice President.
