* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'': Ed is so tomboyish she easily passes as a boy. The fact that the Hungarian dub gave her a BOY's voice helps create confusion. 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.
* Jin from ''Manga/{{DAYS}}'' is a rather androgynous looking LongHairedPrettyBoy that many initially mistook him for [[TheSmurfettePrinciple the sole girl]] on the football team.

* Many characters from ''Manga/InazumaEleven'' but [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120909122605/inazuma-eleven/images/e/e0/Kirino_France_Clothing.png Kirino Ranmaru]] from Go stands out. He has long, pink hair which he wears in ''pigtails''.. But is nevertheless a boy. And a few players have been confused about Kazemaru and Miyasaka's gender upon first playing the game. Sure, the player will figure out Kazemaru's a guy after hearing his voice, but Miyasaka looks and sounds so girly in the anime that one has to constantly remind themselves that he's male. Probably justified in that they're young and might not have hit puberty yet, but ''come on''... Miyasaka had this problem so much, that the English dub of the anime actually ''gender-swapped him into a female''.

** Sailor Uranus has occassionally run into this in some adaptations; while she has even occasionally portrayed as female ''only'' while transformed, many adaptations find hiding her gender [[PragmaticAdaptation too difficult or ingenuine to bother with]].

** Sailor Uranus has occassionally run into this in some adaptations; while she has even occasionally portrayed as female ''only'' while transformed, many adaptations find hiding her gender [[PragmaticAdaptation too difficult or ingenuine to bother with]]. In ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'', Michiru (Sailor Neptune) explicitly says that Haruka (Sailor Uranus) is "both a man and a woman", though whether that's supposed to mean she's genderfluid or that she physically becomes male when not Sailor Uranus is unclear.

* Ana Graham from ''Anime/PhiBrainPuzzleOfGod'' is apparently a dude despite looking, dressing and sounding like one. Apparently confirmed after taking his [[labelnote:shirt off]]you only see his back.[[/labelnote]]

Apparently confirmed after taking his [[labelnote:shirt off]]you only see his back.[[/labelnote]][[/labelnote]] Despite this, he gets to share a room with the other girls and go on "girls only" dates, with his comments of "But I'm a boy" getting mostly ignored.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Anime/DigimonAdventureTri'' has Meicoomon, a cat Digimon who doesn't behave that much feminine in comparison to the other three female Digimon (Piyomon, Palmon and Tailmon) and doesn't look obvious enough. Her nickname "Mei-chan" was the first hint, but for some people it's not enough. The biggest giveaway in ''Determination'' was Leomon's crush on her. By the time Meicrackmon: Vicious Mode was introduced, it's clear that Meicoomon was female from the start.

Added DiffLines:

** Bit character Stuart from the original anime looks like the [[TheSmurfettePrinciple single female member]] of the Blade-Sharks, but is a boy like the others. He wears a cropped shirt, has a BeautyMark, has long eyelashes, and wears his hair in an effeminate bob.

** Then there's Dellinger, who, though flat-chested, acts flamboyantly, has rather shapely legs, and wears high heels. As of this writing he has not been specifically gendered in the manga (at least in English translations), and is drawn rather ambiguously. The anime, however, seems to want viewers to make [[http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140916192538/onepiece/images/8/8b/Dellinger_Anime_Infobox.png no mistake that he is male.]]

** The queen of this trope is Lacerta Misty. Big poofy blonde hair, wears pink, wears pink "lipstick" and says "alrighty"? It took until he was completely naked for most of the viewers to realise his gender -- and even then some didn't believe it. Even when his dub voice is none other than VicMignogna.
