* In ''Anime/OxTales'' the turtle is a female in the original Dutch comics called Dollie. The animation's dubs in Japanese and English (and many others) turn her into a turtle called Jack.

** The localization team got a bit confused in the first ''VideoGame/{{Paper Mario|64}}'' game when Watt showed up. In Japan, Watt is officially female, but as a sentient ball of electricity with a pacifier who uses [[ThirdPersonPerson her own name as a pronoun]] (it's implied she's too young to have learned any yet), there aren't many identifying cues. Your only clue is that on her profile she uses a lisped version of "[[UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns atashi]]", a feminine pronoun. The English version... sort of flip-flops. Most of the time Watt is referred to as "she" and "her", but other times as "he" and "him". By the time ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' came out, the team had apparently settled on referring to him/her as male.

*** From the same game, [[spoiler:Bonetail]] is referred to as female in some translations, and all of the dragons are female in Japanese (having "baba", meaning "old woman" in their names, instead of "tail"). The English version added a FemaleMonsterSurprise with Hooktail, where everyone believes she is male until you meet Gloomtail, who vows to get revenge on Mario for killing his little sister.

* For some bizarre reason, in the spanish version of ''VideoGame/AgeOfMythology'' has Amanra reffer to herself as a male in some lines of dialogue. This despite everything else in the game reffering to her as a woman, looking like a woman and having a ''voice actress''.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is overflowing with LesYay among the [[OneGenderRace Gems]], so in Russia, they change the show's most obvious gay relationship straight by making [[ButchLesbian Ruby]] male.
