* [[spoiler:Chihiro Fujisaki]] from ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa''. It becomes an important plot point in [[spoiler:Chapter 2 due to where the murder occurred. During that chapter, it is also revealed that he resorted to pretending to be a girl in order avoid the constant pressure put on him for being a weak male, but this facade only resulted in him hating himself for not being able to face his own weakness.]]

* ''CoronationStreet'', of all things, introduced Marc (aka, sometimes, "Marcia") in 2011, the show's first crossdressing character (though Hayley, introduced in 1998, is a recurring {{Transsexual}} character.) The show portrays Marc's dressing as both healthy and acceptable, with only unlikeable characters being against it.

* Forrest in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' crossdresses because of his love for female clothing, and because his father Leo once said he looked adorable in a dress when he was very young. He's so feminine that [[DudeLooksLikeALady he's mistaken for a woman when his aunt Elise first meets him]].

** Dragging up is a rite of passage, an essential skill ''expected'' of any British male comedian. It's a rare big name comic or comic actor who hasn't done this once in their career.


Added DiffLines:

* Subverted by Scouse comedian Paul O'Grady in his creation of the embittered, alcoholic, chain-smoking and sexually promiscuous Lily Savage, billed as "The Blonde Bombsite". Lily's savage and acid takes on life graced British comedy TV for quite a few years: she hosted the small-money gameshow ''Blankety-Blank" for several years.

Some permutations of the trope are more or less unique to Japanese works. The Japanese Wholesome Crossdresser is usually well-groomed, compassionate, nice, and above all, so convincing that their "true" gender is only mentioned on occasion, as a reminder to newer members of the audience. There's a fair chance someone will get a crush on them, although this is {{u|nsettlingGenderReveal}}sually resolved after TheReveal.

* The very girly Aoi Futaba from ''YoureUnderArrest'' (who dresses as such after some self-discovery involving extensive undercover work) is virtually indistinguishable from the other female characters; post- ArtEvolution his only barely male noticeable trait is being taller than other policewomen.
** While Aoi's actual taste in partners doesn't come up much, one episode does have him seemingly worried a recent male E-friend will find out he's not actually a woman. Most fans simply assume [[UnfortunateImplications this simply because of the common okama stereotypes]].
** Aoi is more of a {{Transsexual}} then a simple crossdresser though.



** Many of James's disguises involve wearing dresses, even when there's absolutely no reason to (once he and Jessie posed as a bride and groom- him as the bride and her as the groom). Jessie also used to crossdressva lot as well.

** A few canonically male Pokemon have been shown in female clothing. Some of them are embarrassed but some like Dawn's Piplup (who frequently cheered in a pink cheerleader outfit, though he also had a male kimono) aren't phased. An Unova episode even had Pikachu DisguisedInDrag by taping a heart-shape onto his tail.



* Lord Fanny in Creator/GrantMorrison's ''ComicBook/TheInvisibles'', who was raised as a girl by her grandmother, a witch, because men could not become witches.

* In ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Pokémon Crystal]]'', if you choose the female trainer, the overworld sprite changes from female to male if you do any game link cabling with any of the other six games. Yes, even with another Crystal version.
** Also, everyone in Gym Leader Janine's gym in (Heart)Gold and (Soul)Silver is disguised as the Gym Leader to throw you off.

** Similarly, Lopunny is based on a PlayboyBunny, but is just as likely to be male as female. Gothitelle looks as though it's wearing a dress with bows, but has a 25% chance of being male. Really, a lot of the more humanoid ones qualify.

** Blanca, the cat with the blank face, is evidently a male, even though "Blanca" is the feminine form, the gibber-clip is the highest-pitched one used for females, and the outfit is the female skirt. She has no name in Japan, and internationally she's been changed into a girl. Bob, another cat, is still a boy though purple and he wears a long pink floral "shirt".

* Unusually for a children's show (especially a Disney one), ''TheWeekenders'' twice implies that Carver is a cross dresser when his friends catch him in possession of girls' clothing.

* Cruz, from ''{{Needless}}'', unwillingly cross dresses as a girl in the later part of the manga (and ended up popular with his team mates as well as the readers) in order to infiltrate an all-girls Academy. Later he gets a bounty on his head and had to remain cross dressing as a girl to avoid attention from his enemies. Its not known whether he will ever revert back to male clothing as his team mates protest against it when he mentions about it, thus he is STILL in girl's clothing. A popular nickname for this version of him is "Yamada-ko"

* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' allows Miis to crossdress with some Mii Fighter outfits (such as dressing a male Mii as [[VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising Viridi]] or [[VideoGame/WarioWare Ashley]], or a female Mii as [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog Knuckles]] or [[VideoGame/NazoNoMurasamejou Takamaru]]), but other outfits (such as the [[VideoGame/{{Splatoon}} Inkling]]) automatically appear differently for each gender Mii.
