* The infamous Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure doujinshi made by Creator/{{CLAMP}} ([[{{Expy}} and by extension]], Manga/{{Wish}}) does this to Kakyoin. While a pretty mild case compared to most of the other examples on this article due to being parody, it's still pretty cringe-inducing for many [=JoJo=] fans to see such a badass and strong-willed character acting so OutOfCharacter, to the point of being referred to as Jotaro's "wife" and even getting hit with an implied case of MisterSeahorse.
** Even if the Doujinshi is meant to be a parody, it doesn't stop CLAMP from [[http://tieba.baidu.com/p/3866726006 producing a massive number of fanart]] where Kakyoin's feminine appearance go UpToEleven.
** In general, Kakyoin gets this a lot in fandom when paired with Jotaro because he's the [[OneHeadTaller shorter]] and [[{{Bishonen}} prettier]] of the two.

** Either Joseph or Caesar will get this when they're paired with each other. Caesar very likely will become a Uke-ish {{Tsundere}} and Joseph becomes a Naive ManChild when they're the one bottoming.

*** When [[PlayerCharacter a male Avatar]] is paired with [[TheHero Chrom]], he falls victim to this as well... which mirrors the {{Chickification}} that his female counterpart often goes through when ''she'' is paired with Chrom. It ''really'' doesn't help how you can customize the guy's looks to make him a borderline {{Cute Shotaro Boy}} if the player wants to.

Particulaty common victims however are TheHero [[HotBlooded Mamoru Endou]], his successor in the sequel series [[{{Keet}} Tenma Soyokaze]], [[TheWoobie Shirou Fubuki]], Gazel (particularly when shipped with Burn), [[AscendedFanboy Yuuki Tachimikai, Toramaru Utsunomiya]], Hikaru Kageyama, Takuto Shindou, and [[DudeLooksLikeALady Ran Kirimaru]].

** In the Tellius verse, Soren gets this with no exception. Physically, he may look like one, but some yaoi fans tend to forget about [[DeadpanSnarker his]] [[{{Jerkass}} personality]]. The justification they have for it, though, isn't present unless you get an A level Support between Ike and Soren, so it's a case of {{Flanderization}} as well.

* In ''DissidiaFinalFantasy'', the character [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyII Firion]] is a [[TheBigGuy large]] HotBlooded WalkingArmory of a GutturalGrowler {{Badass}}. He is ''also'', especially in Japanese fandom, the LauncherOfAThousandShips in a CastFullOfPrettyBoys, and he almost always bottoms. The end result is that Firion is very frequently transformed into a weepy uke. Now, what makes this interesting is that while all of the above is definitely true of Firion, he is also at the same time rather in touch with his feminine side--he's sensitive, fond of flowers, and displays more emotional vulnerability than most of the other guys. It's just also intensely exaggerated for {{Shipping}} purposes. About the ''only'' one of his multitudinous common pairings where you can't expect ukefication is with [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Tidus]], being that the latter's {{Keet}} is turned UpToEleven and Firion becomes a sort of romantic OnlySaneMan.
