Dude Looks Like a Lady

Have you ever been watching an anime and it's revealed that "she was a boy all along!". This list is for the all the lads out there rocking the cutest girl faces ever. I've decided to only include the characters that still identify as male, so while Ruka might be confusing Okabe, she's all girl to me. And by popular demand, the list is now called "Dude Looks Like a Lady"
1 Minerva X

Minerva X

Describes himself as Mazinger's little sister, then reveals his gender by exposing his flat chest. Speaks with a girlish voice.

2 Ryoji FUJIOKA

3 Kuranosuke KOIBUCHI

Kuranosuke KOIBUCHI

Fashionista extraordinaire. Finds girls' fashion more his style, even if his family disagrees

4 Ringo TSUKIMIYA

Ringo TSUKIMIYA

Got his fame as an idol for his girlish style. Is less than happy about it, honestly

5 Saika TOTSUKA

Confusing the main character with your gender, and having a female voice actor earns you a spot on this list

6 Ritsu SOHMA

7 Felix ARGYLE

Felix ARGYLE

Felix is best girl.

8 Hikaru ASAHINA

Hikaru ASAHINA

One of the oldest of the brothers, Hikaru prefers a more feminine look. As a novelist, he has the leisure of dressing how he wants

9 Sitori CARTWRIGHT

Sitori CARTWRIGHT

Sitri likes cute things, sweets, and being admired for being pretty. Is it no wonder this demon gets mistaken for a girl?

10 Hime ARIKAWA

Hime ARIKAWA

Forced into crossdressing by the student council as payment for repaying his parents' debt. One of many crossdressers in this series

11 Fisheye

Fisheye

His portrayal as a female was further confusing because of the American dubbing company taking away his identity as a male.

12 Kaguya ARIKAWA

Kaguya ARIKAWA

The main character's little brother and part of the disciplinary committee. Constantly has to report himself for wearing tge wrong uniform.

13 Mitsunaga ODA

Head of the disciplinary commiittee and hates the student council. Loves dressing as a girl, though.

14 Hiro

Hiro

Dresses as a girl for the sake of Mitsunaga. Wears faily convincing false breasts.

15 Hacka Doll No. 3

Hacka Doll No. 3

It was only when this AI felt 'down under' and gasped 'it's gone' that his gender was revealed.

16 Hitoshi SUGOROKU

Hitoshi SUGOROKU

Hajime's little brother, extremely sturdy, and a total personality opposite of his brother.

17 Hideyoshi KINOSHITA

Hideyoshi KINOSHITA

He is feminine enough to be mistaken for his twin sister. He gets a girls' bathing suit. Even his classmates don't believe he's a boy. His gender is Hideyoshi, neither male nor female. 

18 Midare Toushirou

Midare Toushirou

I'm with the other swords on this one. I'm still not sure the tantou is a boy.

19 Kiyoka

Kiyoka

Just when everyone tgought, 'Finally a female presense' in this sausage-fest of a show, she turns out to be a he... In transition.

20 Mikuni

Mikuni

Do jellyfish really have gender?

21 Souta KISHIBE

Souta KISHIBE

By Night, La Pucelle, Dragon Knight and female. By day, Souta, regular middle school boy.

22 Husky

Husky

When the manga introduces Husky, he's a mermaid princess in a traveling show. His girlish looks are pretty convincing.

23 Akito WANIJIMA

Akito WANIJIMA

Akito's cute-side is extremely feminine and bubbly, confusing just about everyone.

24 Luppi ANTENOR

Luppi ANTENOR

Looks like a woman, acts like a mega bitch, god that deep voice is off-throwing.

25 Nasu SUKETAKA YOICHI

Nasu SUKETAKA YOICHI

The fact that the other leads both mistook Nasu for a girl is the very reason he is on the list.

26 Count D

Count D

Count D is a man... no matter that he's got a prettier, more feminine face than any other woman in the manga.

27 Izumi SENA

Izumi SENA

The entire plot of his anime is that 'dude looks like a lady' and confuses the love interest.

28 Jakotsu

Jakotsu

Was apparently originally designed to be a woman, then the mangaka decided against having Inuyasha beat up human women... but didn't change the character design

29 Shirou IORI

Shirou IORI

Yes, he looks feminine. Yes, he likes sewing. No, he is not a girl.

30 Zoisite

Zoisite

Really didn't help that the English dub voices him as a female to ward off homophobic commentary. At least they did him right in the remake

31 Homura

Homura

Ok, so this one is really confusing. He's genetically engineered and unstable, so he sort of transitions between genders... randomly.

32 Mayotama

Mayotama

If often mistaken for a girl. Draws doujins ofhimself and his brother.

33 Mare BELLO FIORE

Mare BELLO FIORE

Mare was created to have girlish features and wears girlish clothes, while his twin sister is the tom boy.

34 Tetra

Tetra

Tetra was male in the real world, but because he had a female avatar, is female after the Apocalypse. His/Her gender confuses the guild of Log Horizon. I don't even know what gender Tetra seems themselves as, if they even try to define it. 

35 Ryou KIRISHIMA

Ryou KIRISHIMA

Literally, the title of the anime is that Ryou is a beast in a skirt.

36 Julia Michael BORJE

Julia Michael BORJE

His name is Julia, he's prettier than most girls, and he's a priest in Africa when we first meet him.

37 V.V.

V.V.

V.V. may look like a pretty little princess, but he's actually super old... And a he. It really doesn't help that he has a female VA in English.

38 Nagisa SHIOTA

Nagisa SHIOTA

Not only do his only classmates confuse him for a girl, but night club partiers as well. And with those little fluffy pigtails, the slender build, and female voice actor? It's not hard to see why everyone gets Nagisa's gender confused...

39 Aoi HYOUDOU

Aoi HYOUDOU

Aoi has made a name for himself as an internet idol and loves cute things. This includes making himself into the cutest girl possible.

40 Asuramaru

Asuramaru

Asuramaru may look feminine, may have Colleen Clickenbeard as his US voice actor, but this demon sword is definitely a dude.

41 Kei

Kei

With his flowing blonde locks, on point eyeliner, and flamboyant costume design, he may be mistaken for a female by some.

42 Marulk

Marulk

This apprentice seeker wears a frilly maid's outfit as part of his job in the seeker camp. He's also voice by Aki Toyosaki, so it's ok if you got confused on his gender.

43 Akira SONOHARA

Akira SONOHARA

This middle school student has employed a rather adorable crossdressing scheme to confuse his gaming opponents.

44 Muichirou TOKITOU

Muichirou TOKITOU

I can't be the only one who first saw Tokitou's youthful cloud watching and thought 'what a lovely girl' only to find he was in fact a genius boy.

45 Iwao KOUMOTO

Iwao KOUMOTO

Iwao is a member of the eccentric beading club, and he dresses like a girl.

46 Suou

Suou

Maybe its the perpetual smock wearing, maybe it's the hair ribbons, or maybe its his youthful face but Suou tends to look very feminine.

47 Gloxinia

Gloxinia

When this member of the Ten Commandments first shows up, the long hair and convenient body covering of vines was really not meshing with his voice. And then, revealed he's definitely a guy.

48 Kouha REN

Kouha REN

I can't be the only one who saw this sadistic cherub with his rapunzel hair and was confused about his gender.

49 Hikaru ONIGASHIMA

Hikaru ONIGASHIMA

I'm not sure if it's that Hikaru looks like his sister Hinako or that his sister looks like him, but they're able to swap places with just a wig.

50 Tama KYAN

Tama KYAN

In an anime about girls flashing their undies at a kowtowing bodyless voice, Tama surprises the MC by being... a boy.

Suo from children of the whales

 Nitori from Wandering Son needs to be on this list.

IceBeam13 Aug 19, 2018

It'll cool if you add Asuramaru from Seraph of the End. 

Rascal Jan 29, 2018

Nice list! I was going to make this one myself until I saw it was already a thing. Should add Saika Totsuka from Oregairu and Nagisa Shiota from Ansatsu Kyoushitsu, IMO.

I just wish this list was called "Dude Look's Like a Lady"
