* Happens in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVwJrAr7GkY this]] Japanese car commercial.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vx_bG7QUIAw This one is even better]], because half the commercial the actor has a female voice.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' explains that Tatooine's Tusken Raiders only ever remove their body wrappings in the presence of their immediately family if young, or their spouses if married. The tribes try to keep good records of who's under those wraps when it comes to arranging marriages, but mistakes can happen, leading to some very unhappy wedding nights.

* Reversed in ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell''. Rachel, upon first meeting Bruno, tries to romance him because she thought he was a sheep. To be more specific, ''not a male sheep''. You see, Rachel's a rhino with bad eyesight, and had gone by the smell of the sheepskin Bruno was wearing, which was made from his girlfriend Corrie's wool. The end result was Bruno added ram horns to the sheepskin so he's never mistaken for a girl again.

* A prime example of this occurs in ''Film/INowPronounceYouChuckAndLarry''. While at a party, Chuck (Creator/AdamSandler) hits on a [[CurvesInAllTheRightPlaces curvacious]] playboy bunny whom he thinks is Creator/JessicaBiel, but is actually a CreepyCrossdresser [[FanDisservice played none other than by]] Creator/DavidSpade.

It's also worth noting that in many examples of this trope, it's not the ''gender'' (i.e., gender identity) that's a shocker, but the ''genitals''. One common example is that a straight man is attracted to a woman but finds out that she's transgender and has a penis--in RealLife, [[TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs "trans panic" can have violent or even lethal consequences, and numerous trans people (mainly trans women) being physically or sexually assaulted, sometimes even murdered, when their genitals are revealed]].

Added DiffLines:

** The Japanese version of ''VideoGame/FateExtra'' subverts this trope by implying "Sir Francis Drake" is [[SweetPollyOliver actually Queen Elizabeth in disguise]].
** However, in ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'', male heroes turning out to have been women in disguise all along is an UnusuallyUninterestingSight to the protagonist.
