* Another manhwa, ''Manhwa/LoveInTheMask'', has a tough girl who's forced into being a male bodyguard, apparently because a girl wouldn't be taken seriously. She has a crush on a boy who views her as his little brother who he's always tussling with... and napping with... and cares about more than anyone else... and at one point ''uses her toothbrush after they shared her bed and dreams he's kissing a girl who looks like his "brother"'' (just how close are brothers in Korea??). Later they play ''Anime/RomeoAndJuliet'' in an all-guy school play, to the fury of another guy who knows her secret and has a crush on her. Oh, and ''another'' guy also develops a crush on her when she's [[RecursiveCrossdressing dressed as Juliet]]. The girl she's guarding also has a crush on the first guy and often wonders why she's jealous of two male friends.

* Inverted in Kevin Bolk's ''ItSucksToBeWeegee''. Luigi is telling Link about the irritating time he had at the bar last night -- he couldn't catch the eye of a single girl all night, but [[SamusIsAGirl some guy in orange armor named Sam-something was way more interested than Luigi was comfortable with]]. An exasperated Link just lets it slide.

* Inverted with UsefulNotes/AnneBonny and Mary Read, a legendary pair of 18th century female pirates. When they met, Anne Bonny was openly female, but Mary Read was a SweetPollyOliver. Mary eventually revealed her gender when Anne developed a crush on her. They later went on to become BackToBackBadasses. Though it's not known how far their relationship went after that, by the time their ship was captured and the crew brought to justice, both women were pregnant[[note]]Anne presumably by her lover, Calico Jack, and Mary by hers, the ship's doctor. The real CrowningMomentOfAwesome being that, since they were both pregnant, neither could be sentenced to death, despite a long and unashamed career of piracy until after the children were born. Unfortunately, Read [[DownerEnding died after childbirth in prison]]. Bonny disappeared from the record, but is believed to have been rescued by her merchant father and lived a long and presumably straight life in colonial South Carolina[[/note]].

* In the historical manga ''KazeHikaru'', the main character Sei (disguised as a male samurai) has a large number of men chase after her with varying degrees of seriousness. In an interesting twist, most of them ''don't'' sense she's a girl; they are unrepentantly chasing after 'him' in the hope of a homosexual relationship, following the [[http://www.gay-art-history.org/gay-history/gay-customs/japan-samurai-male-love/japan-samurai-homosexual-shudo.html historical samurai tradition of homosexuality]]. Early on in the manga, one of the men enamored with her almost discovers her gender-- by way of AttemptedRape. * Subverted in ''GirlsSaurus'', where the entire student body of the boys' school Tsubasa goes to is attracted to him because they ''think'' he's really a girl masquerading as a boy. Later, a lesbian completely falls for him... even though she actually knows he's really a guy. * It takes a bit of prodding from a TricksterMentor before ''PenguinRevolution'''s Yuzuru Narazaki recognizes his attraction to Yukari Fujimaru for what it is. Once he does, he decides that IfItsYouItsOkay and confesses his feelings to "Yutaka," still completely oblivious to the fact that Fujimaru isn't actually male.

* ''KillMeKissMe'' is a {{manhwa}} originally created by Korean author Lee Young-you revolving around two identical cousins of different gender who end up switching places, so the girl can get near her crush. The boy agrees due to the fact that they each attend all-girl/all-boy schools. The girl is a much better fighter than the boy, attracting the attention of her crush, who has the exact confusion mentioned above. Meanwhile the boy is tormented by all the girls that have a crush on 'her' that cannot be dated because of the true gender. * Another manhwa, ''LoveInTheMask'', has a tough girl who's forced into being a male bodyguard, apparently because a girl wouldn't be taken seriously.

Sou is, however, not troubled by his attraction to Mashiro.

* The singer of the band Rough Trade is a ButchLesbian with a [[LarynxDissonance very deep voice.]] Their most famous song, "[[SchoolgirlLesbians High School Confidential]]", is about the narrator's PerverseSexualLust over a [[BlondesAreEvil hot, bitchy blonde]] (who is the AlphaBitch), so it's pretty common to mistake the singer for a man.
