* Tristan from ''Webcomic/AngelMoxie'', due to her TomboyishName and pretty [[http://www.venisproductions.com/angelmoxie/archives/0/1/013.html masculine hair cut]]. This might be why Dan Hess decided give her [[http://www.venisproductions.com/angelmoxie/archives/2/7/275.html feminine makeup and longer hair]] later on.

(Also, even though she does wear a skirt on her first appearance, with the art style it can easily be confused with a pair of shorts.) This might be why Dan Hess decided give her [[http://www.venisproductions.com/angelmoxie/archives/2/7/275.html feminine makeup and longer hair]] later on.



* Similar to Digger -- Sweetheart from ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'', being a female, (mostly) non-anthropomorphized dog (one who's a genetically-altered, talking [[InformedAttribute killing machine]])

* The AuthorAvatar from ''Webcomic/AwkwardZombie'' can be rather... ''confusing'' at first. Skinny and flat, wears a [[TertiarySexualCharacteristics baseball cap]], and, when representing characters with PurelyAestheticGender, is usually drawn in the male character's outfit. Long-haired, yes, but that's about it as far as visual femininity. Looking closely at the copyright signature on the sidebar, however, should clear things up--given that not many men are named "Katie." The author is just a GamerChick. However her avatar later got short-haired, which will probably cause more confusion down the line.
** Played with regarding her boyfriend Norrin, who is usually depicted in a masculine version of the girl's clothing but hardly ambiguous due to his PermaStubble.

Added DiffLines:

* The titular protagonist from ''Webcomic/DumCat'' is female, via WordOfGod, though has previously been much speculation due to the animal's gender-neutral appearance and lack of pronouns.

* ''http://floccinaucinihilipilificationa.tumblr.com/tagged/lame-selfie-bee-comic [[Lame Selfie Bee]]'' is female, or at least based on situations that are relatable to women and girls. Her design doesn't have any TertiarySexualCharacteristics and she's treated as a 'neutral' ThisLoserIsYou in a way female characters usually aren't, so some readers might be in for a shock in the comics which show her shaving her legs for a miniskirt or putting on her makeup wrong.

** WordOfGod refuses to say what sex {{Elfeminate}} [[TheSmartGuy Vaarsuvius]] was originally supposed to have, but when fans became confused, the creator just decided to make his/her AmbiguousGender a RunningGag. Even the characters InUniverse are split on what they believe.

* Invoked and played with in ''Webcomic/TheBedfellows''; when new viewers had trouble guessing Fatigue's gender, the creators decided to roll with the idea and have Fatigue's gender be undecided. People refer to Fatigue as a man or woman, Fatigue has a tampon in his purse, Fatigue appears to be peeing standing up in one episode when he's really pouring spoiled milk down a toilet...

Added DiffLines:

* Konami from ''Webcomic/{{Consolers}}'' is female, but has been mistaken for a guy by quite a few readers. Valve has also gotten this occasionally.

* Created intentionally for Blaise Zabini in the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' fan comic ''Webcomic/VoldemortsChildren'': WordOfGod states that Blaise has a gender identity that is obvious to the other characters, but it is not revealed to the readers.

* The main character from ''[[http://chaoslife.findchaos.com/ Chaos Life]]'' is actually female, which was revealed in the FAQ section, and it surprised a lot of viewers. However, her gender is "agender" - meaning she doesn't care if people perceive her as her/him, she/he or just "they" - as she puts it "I'm just me" and they aren't offended or embarrassed by whatever gender people label them.
