* ''Anime/{{Beyblade}}'' gives us Oliver (at least in the English dub). With his feminine features, girly voice, pink beyblade, and unicorn bitbeast, many people assumed he was female. Some of them even thought his name was actually Olivia, and was just being mispronounced. Eventually everyone got the hint when he was continually referred to as a 'he'.
* ''Beyblade'''s spinoff, ''Anime/MetalFightBeyblade'', has quite a few guys with questionably feminine appearances. Thankfully, most of them are saved with masculine voices.

* Richard in ''Manga/RequiemOfTheRoseKing'' is confused as female by some fans. Biologically speaking, he is intersex, but Richard considers himself male and refers to himself with male pronouns.

** Dr. Kureha is often mistaken for a woman, even by the characters themselves.
*** Please notice Dr Kureha has a hourglass shaped body which is common only to women in One Piece. Unless some other character referred to the doctor with a male pronoum (which this troper doesn't remember), Dr Kureha is a woman.



** Tashigi is also a male who looks very blatantly like a woman.

** Manaphy in the 9th movie has a higher voice and pony tail-like antennae may make it seem like a female, its gender is never officially mentioned, so its real gender is unknown. It's maybe leaning more towards male since it's named the "''Prince'' of the Sea" a countless number of times. [[DudeLooksLikeALady However, it still looks like it should be female, though.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The Mewtwo from [[Anime/PokemonGenesectAndTheLegendAwakened the sixteenth movie]] has a very feminine voice, but is physically identical to the (very masculine) original Mewtwo, and it presumably lacks a gender entirely. The same movie has a Genesect that (like Mewtwo) looks masculine and dangerous despite being genderless, but speaks with a soft, child-like tone. Good luck figuring out if it's meant to sound like a young boy or a young girl, though.

** It gets worse in VideoGame/FateGrandOrder. At least he [[http://anime.astronerdboy.com/wp-content/uploads/blogger/_abkMP58OLUA/SlCOZUV7CEI/AAAAAAAAOhs/IvS99mnDiNs/s1600/x7%2BBedivere.jpg started out]] with a slightly deeper jaw and broader chin.

** The Smiling Titan looks very androgynous, as it has a slender body, large eyelashes, and rosy cheeks. Still, like every Titan except the Female Titan ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin who is female]]), it's meant to resemble a male human.

* Ed from ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' is just so tomboyish she easily passes as a boy. The fact that the Hungarian dub gave her a BOY's voice doesn't help. The crew apparently didn't even realize it until Faye shouted it out at the end of the episode she's introduced in.

The crew apparently didn't even realize it until Faye shouted it out at the end of the episode she's introduced in. Heck, Ed's own ''father'' forgets that she's a girl.
