->''"Oh, poppycock! ''Female'' bandits? What next? Rubbish!"''
-->-- '''Prince John''', {{Franchise/Disney|AnimatedCanon}}'s ''Disney/RobinHood''

An AlwaysFemale, or AlwaysMale, trope that is applied to the opposite gender.

While it's not possible to pull off with many of these tropes, due to some of them requiring certain biological features, and others are automatically seen in a different light when gender-inverted, (like the MamaBear and the PapaWolf, or the ActionGirl and the ActionHero), making them an entirely different trope, others are only based on certain generic concepts associated with the gender, and nothing stops the writers from playing with them.

It might be PlayedForDrama, PlayedForLaughs as a character's unique quirk, or even not intended at all: For example, maybe a writer simply thought that gypsy men are hot, and didn't even realize that HotGypsyWoman is a lot more common trope.

Conversely, it can be our own fault, due to ValuesDissonance, as our trope definitions are largely based on western and Japanese works, so it is possible that for example an Indian or Latin American show's characters can be only described with our vocabulary as "Like this trope, but male", even though it could be considered a different trope over there, but none of us knows enough about the culture to make a page for it.

In trope lists, it is often referred to as Rare Male Example and Rare Female Example.
