Wreth, And Then There Were Monsters

The [power-armoured] figure halted a couple of metres away and, to my astonishment, addressed me by name.
"Hello Ciaphas," it said, though a vox unit on its chest. The voice sounded familiar, although I couldn't be entirely sure until a golden gauntlet rose to push back its visor. It opened, with a hiss of breaking atmospheric seals, and a well-remembered face, framed with golden hair, grinned at me, devilment dancing as always in the depthless blue eyes. "We really must stop meeting like this."
Clearly enjoying my stupedfied expression, which by this point I'm bound to admit would have done credit to Jurgen, Amberley's smile widened still further.
With all due modesty, I have to say I recovered remarkably fast under the circumstances.note 
Commissar Ciaphas Cain, Duty Calls

Kitai: Have I ever attempted to deceive you?

And Bradamante, taking off her shield,
Had next removed her helmet from her head.
In doing so, the golden coif, which held
Her tresses coiled and flat, she likewise shed.
They fell about her shoulders and revealed
Her unmistakeably as a young maid,
Who was as beautiful in countenance
Orlando Furioso written in 1516

Sherlock: So who is the man I spoke to on the phone? The man who said he was Moriarty?

Other times it was because I suspected some potential clients might... struggle with my gender. As if men has a monopoly on murder.
"You were so easily convinced that it had to be his son that was swinging the knife, but it's 2015, Emma. Sexist much?"

Kraid: I'm the strongest dragon that you've ever seen
You're gonna die, motherfucker, I take up five screens!
I'm gonna swallow you whole, and then you'll go down easy!
Then you'll be digested and converted to feces!
I'll take off your helmet, see the fear in your eyes
And your beautiful hair, and your well-toned thighs
And your pillowy lips and... wait, you're not a guy?
Samus: Is that a problem, you FUCK?!
Kraid: Uh, no, Prepare to Die!
Kraid was hesitating but Samus was set to fight
She got into a battle stance that made her butt look super-tight
Then Kraid said
Kraid: No wait, I think there has been a gigantic mistake
I actually just wanted to give you desserts I have baked!
But Samus said
Samus: What pisses me off most in this world
Is when enemies get nice when they all find out I'm a girl!
So do me a favor, and take your cakes and your pies,
And shove them so far up your ass that they end up behind your eyes!
Stop treating me like I'm a sex object,
Mother Brain's a woman and she gets respect!
Mother Brain: Yeah, Kraid, you never talk to me that way!
Kraid: Oh, gosh, I wonder if it's because you're a huge disgusting brain?

Uh... You're a girl? Mkay, we were all under the impression that uh... Can you just give me a minute I need to call your parents, mkay? This will just take a second.

Luigi: It's not fair, Link. The only people who flirt with me are other guys.
Link: Listen, if this is about that incident in '93, it was a really awkward time for me and I didn't—
Luigi: No. This bounty hunter guy tried to pick me up at the bar last night. Said he was only planetside for the evening and wanted to show me the time of my life. Couldn't even see his face under all that orange armor...
Link: Wait... Did this "guy" give you his name?
Luigi: Yeah. Began with a 'S'. Sam... or something.
Link: Samus?
Luigi: That's it! I told him I didn't swing that way...
Link: (facepalming) Oh, by Ganon's pork fetish, Luigi...
Luigi: What? What is it?
Link: Nothing. Not a gosh-darn thing. Say! You wanna come over and cry yourself to sleep on my couch for no reason whatsoever!?

"No, Sir."
"That's 'No, Ma'am'"
"No, M... Wait, you're a woman?"

Grif: Aha, I knew it! Only a chick could give me a headache this big!
Tex: What's the matter, never seen a girl before? How long have you guys been out here?

Chuck: Are you a guy, or a lady? Because I never heard the name Samus before so I don't know if it's a male or female name, and your voice filter sounds kinda unisex so I have no way to tell.
(Samus stares for a while)
Samus: Female. If that even matters.
Chuck: Thanks, sorry. Just wanna make sure I don't misgender anyone by accident.
