* The movie ''Film/JumanjiWelcomeToTheJungle'' is about a group of teenagers who get sucked into a video game and are stuck in the bodies of the avatar they chose.

* In a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0W4aLhCwoU 2014 Doritos commercial]] three men are watching football while sharing a bag of Doritos. They discover that biting down on a Dorito while making a wish makes said wish come true. The first man ends up with a sack full of gold coins, the second having his father tell him he's proud of him and the third turns into a beautiful blonde woman. Interestingly the ad makes it clear that this ''isn't'' the result of a wish going wrong or someone else's wish, with the women coming across as very satisfied with the results.


** Corellon Larethian, the patron god of the elves, has long had this ability as an obscure bit of lore dating back to his first appearance. It was basically trivia for most of D&D's lifespan, serving mainly as a way to reinforce the {{elfeminate}} trope, but in 5th edition, it was made more prominent by adding the existence of a minority of elves have the ability to voluntarily shift genders whenever they want, a trait referred to as "The Blessing of Corellon", since it's believed to indicate special favor from the elf god.

Unless they're drow, in which case they have to learn to hide the ability ''really fast'' or they'll be murdered for being a threat to the rigid gender roles of drow society.
** 5th Edition gives kobolds the ability to involuntarily change gender as a result of having a severe imbalance in the male/female ratio of a warren due to attack by monsters or adventurers. As kobolds are reptilian humanoids that lay eggs and lack any form of sexual dimorphism, they just see this as just a thing that happens.


* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' maintains ''D&D''[='=]s Girdle of Femininity/Masculinity, in addition to a relatively cheap Elixir of Sex Shifting making biological sex very easy to change -- one NPC from the ''Wrath of the Righteous'' adventure path is mentioned to have made use of such a potion a while in the past to undergo a fantasy equivalent of gender adjustment treatments.

* Similarly, ''TabletopGame/EclipsePhase'' has the "Sex switch" augmentation that allows one to change sex at will, but the transformation takes a week. For some reason it only takes a day in a [[AutoDoc healing vat]] to permanently switch sexes.

* While uncommon, Thor fanfics where Loki turns into a woman are not too hard to find. It's usually explained [[spoiler: by the fact that he's a frost giant]] and inspired by Norse myths of the gender-changing god (see the "Norse" entry in the "Mythology" tab). [[http://savu0211.deviantart.com/gallery/43010983?offset=24 (All) Father Loki]] is one such fic.

** Another French example would be ''Une Femme Dans la peau'' or ''Johanna'' about the middle-aged lecherous Antoine, who gets hit by a bus (He [[DistractedByTheSexy got istracted]]) and has his [[BrainTransplant mind transplanted]] into the dead body of a beautiful girl, who had died of an overdose, by a mad Nazi scientist. Now Antoine has to deal with both being a blonde bombshell, trying to get enough cash to survive (he ends up taking a job as a pinup girl, because of course), and having to dodge the scientist's elderly Nazi-Remnant chums and stop them from using the procedure in a two-for-one FountainOfYouth/[[TakeOverTheWorld World Domination]] plot.
