* Chimerism has been found to be the cause of rareŚsometimes, seemingly impossibleŚcoat colors in several species of animal, including dogs, cats, and horses. One particular horse appeared to be a stallion, but was found to have a blend of stallion and mare DNA; calico tomcats are the feline equivalent.

* Human chimerism exists as well, but has only been discovered to date in women whose partners requested paternity testing of their children. The results showed that the father's DNA matched the children's but the mother's didn't.

* Human chimerism exists as well, but so far it has only primarily been discovered to date identified in women whose partners requested paternity testing of their children. The results showed that the father's DNA matched the children's but the mother's didn't. More extensive follow-up tests showed that the mothers' blood, skin or saliva (the most common mediums for DNA testing) had one DNA profile while her ovaries had another.

* These cases tend to hit the news every Olympic year as various female athletes are accused of or found to be intersexed even though no one has ever demonstrated these women actually derive any unfair advantage from this that exceeds those derived from other natural variations such as height, bone density or muscle mass. There is considerable evidence that most of these conditions actually make them immune to any boost XX females might get from male hormones.

* The character Ramona in ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'' is defined to be a fairly classic case of a form of androgen insensitivity syndrome (see below under Real Life). She's a well-adjusted heterosexual woman; the fact mainly serves to bemuse some of the other characters.

* The big [[TheReveal reveal]] in ''Literature/TheSagaOfTuck'' is that the titular character's increasingly feminine appearance is due to 'his' being a chromosomal chimera, with both XX and XXY sets of chromosomes. Tuck was actually [[{{Hermaphrodite}} intersexed]] at birth, though the doctors never told his family that they had 'corrected' this, a fact that made his mother furious when they learned the truth.

In fiction, this usually pops up in various kinds of detective stories and is used as a excuse to make a DNA test into a RedHerring. It can also be a source of drama or simply a character quirk. The actual cause is likely to be HandWaved or just glossed over. {{Transsexual}}s are covered by their own trope but may also fall under Wrong Genetic Sex if their transgender status is not known in advance and the plot hinges on the difference between their chromosomes and their appearance. Intersex people may also be included under similar circumstances. However, only individuals count: If an entire population is intersex, then it's a OneGenderRace.
