* The first episode of the second series of Series/{{Blackadder}} inverts this trope - the episode opens with a beautiful but poor young woman named Kate deciding to disguise herself as a boy to find work and support her ailing father. She finds a job as Edmund's manservant, and the two fall in love over the course of the episode while he tries desperately to cognitively reframe the feelings he's having for another man. The relief he feels when she reveals her true gender is immense.

* A semi-common event on ''Series/TheJerrySpringerShow'' is a transwoman or man coming out as trans to their boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse. The person being told [[FreakOut rarely reacts well]], oftentimes because they're angry that they weren't informed sooner, feeling like their partner was lying to them or deliberately hiding information. Given this it's unsurprising that most of these events end with the spouse breaking things off with the transperson, sometimes due to IncompatibleOrientation, other times due to no longer feeling like they can trust their partner if they were willing to hide something so major.

* In the surprisingly serious short ''What's Opera, Doc?'', Elmer Fudd finds out that the girl he fell for was WesternAnimation/BugsBunny in a dress -- and ''[[DownerEnding actually kills Bugs]]'' with his magic helmet. Although it's unclear whether he does it because Bugs is male, or if it's because Bugs rejects him the moment the disguise is off! Or because, well, he's Bugs.

* ''LightNovel/AndYouThoughtThereAreNoGirlsOnline'' plays with this quite a lot. Most notably, it manages to pull this off ''twice with the same character'': a girl Rusian is crushing on in-game reveals herself to be a man in real-life (which gives Hideki major trust issues), but it's later revealed that she actually ''is'' a woman in real-life - his ''high-school teacher'', no less - and she'd merely been invoking the trope to stave off unwanted male attention.



* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'': Tieria Erde, although his voice and personality help to only keep the viewer in the dark for parts of the first episode. Still, his girly looks and the fact that he wears a fuzzy pink sweater when not burninating the countryside in his Gundam cause enough of a double-take to fit him in here. To add to the confusion, [[WordOfGod the people making the show]] claimed Innovators have no sex. They actually, meant that they were androgynous. It was just badly translated and underwent MemeticMutation before the correction came around. He doesn't make it any easier in the 2nd season, when it's shown that when it's needed, he ''can'' really fill out a ballgown. Maybe [[Anime/{{Gravion}} Eiji]] gave him some tips...
