** Cross-sex chimerism can also occur in birds, although their mechanism of sex chromosomes is different (WW males vs WZ females). In fact, it's common enough that captive-breeders of parrots have a term ("half-sider") for a bird that displays one sex/color on one side and a different sex/color on the other.

* In ''Series/OrphanBlack'', the genetic original person for both the female and male clone batches turns out to be the same person, an XX woman who had XY chromosomes in some of her cells due to chimerism.

* Chimerism has been found to be the cause of rare�sometimes, seemingly impossible�coat 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.

* This is a major plot point in an episode of ''FreaksAndGeeks'', when Ken's new girlfriend Amy tells her she's one of these. There was no DNA test or anything - the conflict came from Amy getting upset at Ken (who initially struggled with the revelation) telling his friends her big secret.

* 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.
