* ''UruseiYatsura'': Ryuunosuke Fujinami has been raised to be a man amongst men -- handsome, tough, and aggressive. Too bad ''she's'' against the idea. However, her father's training has been so thorough that she can't help but slide into the masculine role... a conflict personified when she angrily protests "Ore wa ONNA da!!!" -- i.e. "I'm a WOMAN", using the most masculine construction possible.

* Given how fluid gender is in ''{{Simoun}}'' what pronouns are used by what characters varies quite a bit. For the character of Yun in particular, when she [[spoiler:switches from 'ore' to 'atashi']]
* This is a plot point in the first ''[[StarOcean1 Star Ocean]]''. Phia Mell is a tomboy (and captain of the Astral Guards) who always speaks using masculine speech. Her childhood friend Cyuss is nonplussed when he sees her speaking to him using feminine speech, which clues him in that the Phia he's talking is a fake. Unfortunately, in the translated remake this was glossed over and substituted with a different clue entirely.

* On reaching the Hermit Social Link's fourth rank in ''{{Persona 3}}'', Maya tells you about a creepy man in Paulownia Mall (the Devil Social Link, [[spoiler:President Tanaka]]). "You'll know him cuz he talks like a woman" is how she sums him up. The idea doesn't quite make the jump into languages without such enforced masculine/feminine speech patterns.
* In ''{{Remember11}}'', where Kokoro (a woman) and Satoru (a man) have their [[FreakyFridayFlip minds swapped]] randomly throughout the story, their companions eventually learn to tell which personality is currently in control by listening to their manner of speaking.

* In the ''KinosJourney'' prequel OVA Kino speaks in feminine patterns, using "''atashi''" for "I" during most of her stay in her Master's place, as well as wearing dress and keeping her hair long. After she returns from her first brief journey, [[ExpositoryHairstyleChange her hair has been cut short by the circumstances]], and she's shifted to masculine "''boku''" form, as well as finally being comfortable with her assumed name.
