[[AC:Web Original]] * 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.

* In human beings and most types of animals all embryos begin with undifferentiated gonads connected to both ductus (vas) deferns and oviducts (Fallopian tubes). By default the gonads will develop into ovaries and the vas deferens will disappear, but usually the presence of a Y chromosome causes an androgen reaction that makes the gonads instead become testes and the Fallopian tubes wither away whilst retaining the vas deferens.
