* The ''[[Manga/{{Trigun}} Trigun Maximum]]'' manga has Elendira the Crimsonnail, although she is presented as a transvestite. Vash is the only one who briefly recognizes her as female, and then only to insult her. She glared and said 'a woman like you' out of Wolfwood when he called her a guy one time. Apart from Meryl categorizing her as a transvestite (and complimenting her figure) after she falls out of the sky, it doesn't really come up otherwise; people are busy. The actual question is how everyone can tell by looking at her.
** Well, it could be that she hasa man's voice, albeit very effeminate, which is quite common.

* Nomi from ''Series/{{Sense8}}'' is a transgender hacker. Her gender identity plays an important role in her story, but doesn't dominate it. Her relationship to her girlfriend, and skill with computers, is as essential to her story as her gender. Considering one of the directors, Lana Wachowski, is transgender herself, the positive treatment of her character isn't too surprising.

Contrast GenderBender, which is a trope about men and women changing genitals (and the rest of their bodies) into conforming to a publicly accepted image of the opposite gender -and sometimes gender identity - through magic or AppliedPhlebotinum. Also contrast EasySexChange, which is this trope plus TheyJustDidntCare; though it has at least a ''pretense'' of realism, it minimizes or ignores many physical, psychological, and/or social complications of sex change. For another common example of TheyJustDidntCare as applied to this trope, see TransEqualsGay.
