Added DiffLines:

** Heavy Magician and Heavy Rider from ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' are supposed to be female, but the player wouldn't even know that [[AllThereInTheManual unless they read the game's manual]].

Added DiffLines:

** And then they are both dwarfed by Tamamo no Mae who has a female voice actress and a very, ''very'' feminine look (it also doesn't help that he is a CreepyCrossdresser). The thing giving away his gender? The fact that he was married to a woman and ''had kids'' with her.

* Gunstar Red from ''[[GunstarHeroes Gunstar Super Heroes]]'' is a girl. It's due either by reading the manual or by her gender being expressed ONCE that you would know this.

** Ron Delite from ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney - Trials and Tribulations''. He has all sorts of female characteristics, such as a pointy "egg" head shape, hair like that of [[Franchise/StarWars Princess Leia]] and a somewhat feminine face. Doesn't help that he's very kind, gentle and shy, and that his Mask☆De Masque costume is very husky.

** Nahyuta Sahdmadhi in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'' looks very feminine and his outfit doesn't help matters either. However, his voice clips are clearly male. Many fans who saw Nahyuta in the previews of the game mistook him for a female until the developers revealed he is a man.

* Earlier version of BestFiends has Brittle the Housefly, who is hairy in her final form makes it hard to know if she is a girl. Later versions avert all of this.

** Birdo is undeniably female, however her biological sex is the issue. While there is more than one member of the species (much like Yoshi), the main one featured in the games is a biologically male but [[{{transsexual}} female gendered]]...most of the time. Nintendo has occasionally [[FlipFlopOfGod changed Birdo's biological sex from male to female to]] [[AmbiguousGender not really saying if it's one or the other.]]

* Eric Lecarde in the Japanese and European releases of ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaBloodlines'' is a bishonen-style pretty boy with a decidedly feminine outfit (a very short red tunic and white leather boots, and unlike the Belmonts, there's no armor or animal hides to toughen it up). The only tipoff you get is the conspicuous lack of breasts. The US version gives him a more masculine face to make it clearer that no, he's not supposed to be a chick.

** Also, [[PlayboyBunny Lo]][[KillerRabbit punny]]. There is a 50/50 chance that the Pokémon is a male/female, and it doesn't help that (s)he has a [[FetishFuel feminine appearance]]. It helps even less that most people say the name is a caricature of ''{{Playboy Bunn|y}}ies''.

* The PlagueDoctor from ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' wears the usual outfit of such an individual: many layers of very loose-fitting robes, a hood, and all-concealing beak mask. The outfit, combined with the dark, desaturated art style, leaves only the barest hint that there's a woman underneath all the layers. As such, despite descriptions referring to her as female, she's often mistaken for a man by players.

Perhaps to quell those who are confused, [[http://www.darkestdungeon.com/darkest-dungeon-presents-the-plague-doctor her character comic]] shows her in full underneath the outfit.
** Same with the Houndmaster's dog, who is only referred to as a she in a few voice lines, but a good percent of fans believe they are a male.
