** 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. [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/typemoon/images/5/5d/Bedivere2.png/revision/latest?cb=20160814064816 Now]] he's been "[[OnlySixFaces Saberfaced]]."

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

** His being a man is more obvious in the anime due to a male voice.

* 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.

* Takumi in ''Anime/GadGuard''. He has long blonde hair styled into a {{hime cut}} and appears to be romantically linking up with Hajiki in his first few episodes. However, switching to the English-language dub leaves the viewer in little doubt as to his gender as the voice sounds masculine (despite being voiced by a female in the English dub).

Added DiffLines:

* Shinobu from ''Manga/UQHolder'' is ''probably'' female but just boyish enough that she could well be a boy with a girly face. Later chapters confirm she's a girl.

* [[TheWoobie Crona]] from ''Manga/SoulEater'': even WordOfGod refused to confirm [[AmbiguousGender her/his]] gender! In the English dub, Crona is referred to with male pronouns because the dubbers didn't want the dialogue to sound too awkward by avoiding the subject. No one, especially the ones behind the English dub, has a clue behind Crona's gender.
