'''Basic Trope''': A character has different sexes in different places the work was released (often due to a mistranslation).
* '''Straight''': Bob's dog is female in America, but is male in Japan.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Bob's dog is a GirlyGirl in America, but is a non-{{Bishonen}} male in Japan.
** ''Every character'' is the other gender in at least one country.
** In the English dub, Bob's LoveInterest is ''digitally edited'' to look female.
* '''Downplayed''':
** Bob's dog is a tomboy in America, but is a {{Bishonen}} in Japan.
** Bob's dog is a one-time character.
* '''Justified''': Not applicable. This trope requires the work to be translated into at least one other language, making an InUniverse explanation impossible.
* '''Inverted''': The script writer flips the gender of one character early on.
* '''Subverted''':
** Cue UnsettlingGenderReveal to Bob's dog in America. His gender remains male in Japan, though
** The SamusIsAGirl Trope occurs in Japan, but not in America.
* '''Double Subverted''': But suddenly, Bob's dog was taken to the vet. In the version with the gender reveal that opposed the audience's thoughts, the dog went under Gender-changing Surgery offscreen (which wasn't [[LampshadeHanging mentioned]] at all).
* '''Parodied''': One episode switches languages halfway through, [[MindScrew and the dog inexplicably flips to the other gender]].
* '''Zig Zagged''': See Double Subverted. After that, it was revealed that the gender-changing surgery failed.
* '''Averted''':
** Bob's dog is female in the original Japanese version, and is depicted squatting to pee in an important scene to make it impossible to believably change her sex.
** Every character's gender is the same in all dubs of the show.
* '''Enforced''':
** One episode featuring Bob's dog revealed that its love was a male hound. So the makers {{Bowdlerized}} the HoYay.
** Bob's dog was seen with feminine qualities in Japan.
* '''Lampshaded''':
-->(Subbed) "Be strong, little guy"\\
(Dubbed) "Who's a good girl?"
* '''Invoked''': Not applicable. (This trope is beyond the control of the characters.)
* '''Exploited''': In Japan, a female dog was used as bait. In America, this dog was male.
* '''Defied''': Not applicable. (This trope is beyond the control of the characters.)
* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': "I've heard that Bob's dog is male in Japan."
* '''Implied''': Bob's dog is [[TheGhost mentioned but never shown]].
* '''Plotted A Good Waste''': The GenderFlip was intentional.
* '''Played For Laughs''': In Japan, Bob's dog wears a hat with the symbol "♂" in it. For the English dub, this symbol was digitally edited to look like the symbol "♀".
