* In [[ChineseLanguage Chinese]], the words for he and she are pronounced exactly alike (but are written differently). In spoken Chinese, this can lead to [=SIAG=] moments if the subject has a GenderBlenderName or the listener does not have enough context from the sentence to get gender.

** Reira Akaba. The Japanese version has characters refer to them with gender-neutral pronouns, and the character wears a hoodie and hat to cover her hair, making her look like a boy. The dub refers to her as male, but gives her a gender-neutral name, ''Riley.'' Both fans and characters assumed Reira to be a boy, until TheReveal later on, when she takes off her hat and hoodie, revealing her long hair and feminine appearance.

* According to WordOfGod, Dark Faust is this in ''Series/UltramanNexus''. It doesn't help that she is voiced by Creator/TetsuInada.

* Named for Samus Aran from ''{{VideoGame/Metroid}}''. In the [[VideoGame/{{Metroid1}} first game]], the player doesn't learn she's female until after guiding her through an army of alien baddies. Later games in the series still play with this.

* Named for Samus Aran from ''{{VideoGame/Metroid}}''. In the [[VideoGame/{{Metroid1}} first game]], the player doesn't learn she's female until after guiding her through an army of alien baddies. Later Most games since have followed in the series tradition of showing her out of armor only if you beat the game ''and'' fulfill certain conditions, but they still do play with this.the trope in a number of different ways.



* The death sequences in ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'', ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion'', and ''VideoGame/MetroidZeroMission'' also have her armor shattering and reveal her form underneath. Plus, ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Melee]]'' gives her a sleek version of the Varia Suit.

* The manual of ''VideoGame/MetroidIIReturnOfSamus'', however, uses "she" throughout. A literal case of AllThereInTheManual, only confirmed by the best ending (later games do much the same).

* 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.

* In ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheStickOfTruth'', the player can only play as a boy, but in ''[[VideoGame/SouthParkTheFracturedButWhole The Fractured but Whole]]'', which is explicitly a direct sequel starring the same character, the player can choose their gender. If the player chooses a girl, the explanation is that the player character was actually a girl, transgendered or nonbinary all along in the first game, but nobody (including the character's own parents, considering they refer to their kid as "he" even when they think they're alone) noticed. This is lampshaded by a confused Mr. Mackey calling up your parents to confirm your gender.
