There seems to be still some spoilers here. Though, most of them seems to be because the "girl" is, say, an important villain, and the plot twist involving the character is beyond the character's being a girl.

Been chewing on this trope in my head. It's really becoming Seen It A Million Times to me. Personally I find the idea of a female torturer/assassin/killer/hired gun/hero/etc to not be a stretch at all - as a matter of fact any time a character has their face and voice obscured I'm already expecting this trope. When the woman reveals herself my reaction to "it's female" is along the same lies as "they have a nose".

The main description is mistaken The word hunter does not exclude Huntress, it's gender neutral in origin and in plenty of casual application still today, it's just society being Mal Dominated that makes words for specifically the Female variety needed.

Same with many other words. I refer to Michelle Trachtenberg as my Favorite actor without hesitation, and rarely encounter anyone objecting to it.

Back around 1990, I wasn't following contemporary music, but every so often I'd hear about "Milli Vanilli". In the inverse of the Noir situation, I thought it was one woman, but years later I found out it was two men.

What if the main character has Easy Amnesia and doesn't even remember their past life at all. Everyone uses male pronouns because...well, it's easier. (By the way, said character is a Bedsheet Ghost with no discernible attributes of gender, one way or another). As it turns out, the character was in fact a girl. Is that this trope?

I found a non-fanart picture that works well.. it's a trophy from brawl.

Anyone think about Thumb Wars for this? "Luke! I am your... Mother!"

Just a thought.
