* Aeril in ''LightNovel/UndefeatedBahamutChronicle'' disguises herself as the male "Coral" in order to infiltrate the Seven Dragon Paladins. This isn't so she can be a Drag-Knight (in this setting, female Drag-Knights are not only common but make up the majority of skilled Drag-Knights) but because her real identity (a princess of an ancient civilisation) would attract too much attention. Unusually, her disguise involves no physical component beyond wearing male clothing; she uses her ability to control people's perceptions in order to pretend to be male.

* {{Subverted}} in ''Webcomic/TwoKinds'' with Natani. She dresses and acts like a guy because part of her soul had to be repaired with a piece of her brother's soul. That included the part about gender identity. As a result, [[{{Transsexual}} she honestly believes she is male]] even though she is in a decidedly female body. She keeps her breasts bound and disguises her scent so nobody but a trusted few know the truth.

* Subverted in ''Manga/LudwigKakumei''. [[spoiler: When we receive a {{flashback}} of a princess being outcast and then flash forward to Petronella calling Julius "Julianna", this is where your mind goes, right? Unfortunately for you, Kaori Yuki doesn't think the way us (relatively speaking) sane people do. Turns out the young Princess Julianna was actually born a boy who grew up and developed into an actual [[{{Transsexual}} transwoman.]] Isn't that wacky?]]

* A similar idea is used in ''Film/VictorVictoria'', merely as a way to break into show business. Victoria's singing is apparently far more appreciated by audiences who think she's a gay female impersonator named Victor.

Victoria's singing is apparently far more appreciated by audiences who think she's a gay female impersonator named Victor. The film makes a point that this takes some doing: Victoria is naturally a coloratura soprano (being played by Creator/JulieAndrews) but has to perform as a contralto so that her voice is deep enough to keep up the illusion.

Added DiffLines:

*''WesternAnimation/TheBreadwinner'' has been compared to ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' for its use of this trope.

Later on she meets with an old friend from school named Shauzia who is doing the same thing.

* In ''Film/{{Lockout}}'', Emilie ends up the only woman in the middle of a space prison riot so Snow must disguise her as a prisoner in the hopes that they can sneak past the others. He does this by rubbing coffee, motor oil and dirty toilet water in [[DyeOrDie her hair]]. The other prisoners still take a interest in her for being a "pretty boy" inmate, forcing Snow and Emilie to fight their way through anyway.

* OlderThanFeudalism: In the fourth century b.C. married women were forbidden to watch the Olympic Games so a woman called Kallipateira dressed as a male trainer to go and watch his son compete. It is said that this episode was what started the tradition for both trainers and athletes to attend the games naked.
