* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', Tiger from the Wild Wild Pussycats team is stated in an {{omake}} to be a female-to-male transsexual who went to Thailand for the operation. A one-off gag mentioned how out of place a muscular man is among a group of CatGirl-costumed heroes, but it's otherwise not taken into attention.

* Played with in ''Anime/{{Punchline}}''. [[spoiler:Yuuta]] was a boy who switched bodies with a girl ten years ago. He's been stuck that way since but the SecondLawOfGenderBending didn't work out for him. He hates being a girl and still lives as a boy.

Has nothing to do with {{Transhuman}}s; the shared root "trans-" [[note]]Latin for "across" or "beyond"[[/note]] is the only commonality, and even then both terms use different definitions of it. The root "trans-" here roughly means "opposite".

* Music/TheCliks are the first band with a trans frontman to be signed to a major label. Apparently their leader, Luacs Silveira, abstained from testosterone injections to preserve his singing voice.



* Punk band AgainstMe! announced in February 2012 they were recording a new album. Fast-forward to May and the album's title is released: ''Transgender Dysphoria Blues''... along with news that their lead singer is also transgender.
* [=UTAUloid=]/Vipperloid Yokune Ruko is an intersex chimera of 90% male/10% female, according to his/her creator. Due to Ruko's very feminine appearance (as well as her expansive bust), many fans (and sadly, as a result, FanDumb) treat the 'loid as female for the purposes of non-sexualised fan works ... despite the fact that the ''whole point'' of him/her is that they have ''a male and a female voicebank''.
* Anna-Varney of Music/SoporAeternusAndTheEnsembleOfShadows is a trans woman, but refuses to get hormone treatment or surgery because of "spiritual conflict" resulting from such.
* SteamPoweredGiraffe technically contains two transgender performers in the form of Bunny Bennett, a transwoman, and her onstage persona, Rabbit (originally a male robot [[RealLifeWritesThePlot whose gender was changed to match Bunny's own]]; Rabbit's status as a robot and subsequent lack of any real gender makes this debatable).
* Schmekel is an all-transgender, Jewish folk punk band from Brooklyn, NY, featuring four transmen.

Added DiffLines:

* Yayoi and her other female work colleagues in ''Manga/FutariEcchi'' are transwomen. They have a mostly decent portrayal, some characters such as the protagonists are generally amicable/respectful her (occasional remarks aside) and the mangaka often includes information on transwomen (such as their history in Japan, the different body types and what's considered acceptable and derogative terms). One subplot in the series is Yayoi's relationship with Okahama: being the jerk he is, Okahama is disgusted when he first sees the pre-operative Yayoi's genitalia and has a "mental breakdown" over his attraction to her; although he takes a genuine interest her, he still refers to her as a man and often talks about her or their relationship in a derogative way, leaving his progress to be a mixed bag.

Trans women are more common in media than trans men, whose existence is largely ignored by the mainstream despite statistically being equally common in RealLife (current estimates are somewhere in the vicinity of 1 in 200 for social transition.)

Trans women are more common in media than trans men, whose existence is largely ignored by the mainstream despite statistically being equally common in RealLife (current estimates are somewhere RealLife. When a BalefulPolymorph causes characters to get transformed into another sex though, it's almost always male characters getting stuck with female bodies -- in the vicinity of 1 in 200 for social transition.)
other words, trans men.

Despite the trope name, it is very important to note that the currently preferred term is '''transgender''', not '''transsexual'''. The language around trans discourse changes very rapidly, due to being de-medicalised and re-written by trans people themselves instead of by outside onlookers. The demarcation between gender, sex, gender expression and orientation is also subject to constant historical and cultural shifts in perspective -- the realisation that these are different things with only some overlapping points is slowly seeping into our modern narratives. This should be kept in mind with context to older media and stories from foreign cultures. As a matter of fact, there is still a lot that isn't understood, and because research on the subject is always yielding new discoveries in relatively quick succession, in addition to shifting societal norms and growing understanding that even biology isn't as cut-and-dry as it once was thought to be. It's best to keep an open mind as previously rigidly held, commonplace ideas are challenged.

* '''Sex''' are the male and female bits of someone's body that can be seen, either with the naked eye or using scientific equipment. The word encompasses things like genitals, chromosomes, hormones and hair growth. Like gender, sex is on a gradient with many points in between male and female. Unlike gender, sex can nowadays be changed by medical science, which many trans people are happy to do. The term "biological" sex is often used to describe someone's sexual characteristics at birth, but it's quickly falling out of favour as it implies people's gender being somehow less biological than the rest of them.
