BIPOC ‧ Japanese

Barney Guttman from Dead End: Paranormal Park
Barney is the main character of “Dead End”, and openly transmasc! His gender and relationship with his family because of it is an important character arc in Season 1, and he is a fully fleshed out character whose trans-ness is never made the butt of any joke or treated as strange by the other characters, despite the show being a comedy.
Beauty Nova from Pokémon X & Y
Beauty Nova is a minor Pokémon character that can be battled in Pokémon X & Y. Nova says that, just a half year ago, she was a Black Belt (or a Karate King in the Japanese version), a trainer type that’s exclusively male, in contrast to her “Beauty” trainer type, which is exclusively female. While her dialogue in the English version is somewhat censored, she says in the Japanese version “the power of medical science is amazing, wouldn’t you say?!”, alluding to her medical transition!!
bedroom community by glass beach
bedroom community represents the transfem community in similar ways as yoshi’s island. It goes into depth in different ways, such as her relationship with her father.
calico by glass beach
calico is a comforting song for any gender non-conforming people. The singer is comforting a male calico cat, who is unusual, and in a way, gender non-conforming! With the lyrics “Calico, don’t go” and “you’re not gonna leave him alone” the singer comforts the listener and reminds them that there are people out there that care about them and want to protect them.
Captain Spaceboy from OMORI
Spaceboy is never mentioned to be transmasc or implied to be in-game, due to OMOCAT (game devs) not knowing, but his original creator confirmed it, and there’s old art of him on her Twitter account after getting top surgery.
Double Trouble from She-Ra and the Princesses of Power
Double Trouble is a shapeshifter that acts as a spy and saboteur. For this reason, they are the central antagonist of the fourth season.

glass beach & blood rivers represents the genderqueer community through its lyrics, implied to be about two genderqueer people running away from their families due to a lack of support.
Magne Hikiishi from My Hero Academia
BIPOC ‧ Japanese
Magne is a minor transfem villain in the show. It’s very clearly telegraphed throughout the episodes that she is trans, with her friends calling her “Big Sis Magne”, and a scene where her friends correct someone on her pronouns (VERY aggressively, they threaten someone, they are still villains after all). Magne is also representation of a particularly rare kind: Magne is very masc-presenting! While she’s very much transfem, she doesn’t seem to have a problem about having an unshaved face or wearing more masculine clothing. Magne is strong, brave, and confident in herself and where she belongs, and is very positive representation for the trans community!

Madeline from Celeste

Mangle from Five Nights at Freddy’s
Mangle has conflicting information on their gender. Mangle’s pronouns are entirely different between different mentions of the character in game, with she, he, and they all being used for them. This is likely because Mangle, as his name hints at, is a mangle of different dismantled animatronics, which all probably have different genders. Scott Cawthon, the creator of FNaF himself, has added to the confusion with a post he made on Steam, in one of the funniest ways he possibly could, by saying that her gender is “Yes”. Mangle first appears in FNaF 2, and has been a staple of the games since then.
Mizuki Akiyama from Project Sekai
BIPOC ‧ Japanese
Mizuki is referred to with they/them pronouns and their gender is labeled “?” in-game. They are also heavily implied to be transfem.

BIPOC ‧ Latine VA

Samus Aran from Metroid
In earlier depictions, Samus Aran from “Metroid” was represented as a trans woman! She was described as a “newhalf”, an old Japanese slang term for trans women, by her designer, Hirofumi Matsuoka in 1994. She was also said around that time to be 6’3 and 198 pounds, more typical AMAB dimensions. Though she’s since been made smaller and more conventionally feminine in more recent games, there’s been nothing to suggest that she’s strictly cisgender, and the creator’s intent still stands!
Shela Sexton, “Escapade” from Marvel Comics
Shela is a Mutant with the power to switch physical places or situations with someone.
Sister from Star Wars: Queen’s Hope
BIPOC ‧ Māori
Sister is an openly transfem clone trooper who is accepted by her fellow clones and her Jedi generals. She was worried for her safety because of her trans-ness, unsure if she would be considered a “defective” clone, and killed because of it, a fear that many of us trans people know all too well.

The Village by Wrabel
The Village is a song dedicated to transgender people, and details the struggles of a young transmasc with an unsupportive family with lyrics that are meant to be quotes: “Don’t dare, don’t you even go there, cutting off your long hair, you do as you’re told.” The song also provides comfort for the listener with its main message, spread throughout the song: there’s nothing wrong with you just because you’re trans.
This Is Home by cavetown
This Is Home is a transmasc anthem, with the lines “I’ll cut my hair, to make you stare, I’ll hide my chest”. There’s also a part that represents someone else talking about him, which is in some ways exactly what a transmasc person both would and wouldn’t want to hear (“Get a load of this trainwreck, his hair’s a mess and he doesn’t know who he is yet, but little do we know the stars welcome him with open arms”). It’s also important to note that this was recorded before Cavetown transitioned, which makes the song representative even for pre-t transmascs.
Viktor Hargreeves from The Umbrella Academy
Viktor comes out as transmasc in Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy. It fits into his character very well, and all his siblings have different, but all kind and supportive, ways of reacting to his coming out. On top of this, his sibling’s reactions are a very entertaining part of the plot that doesn’t feel out of place for any of the characters or the story. This was also written into the script to support Viktor’s actor, Elliot Paige, who came out as transmasc between the release of seasons 2 and 3.
yoshi’s island by glass beach
yoshi’s island represents the transfem community by detailing a trans girl’s relationship with her mother and society. This is a transfem anthem with lyrics that can hit extremely hard, like “I won’t say she even though I know you want me to, I know that it’s hard but I swear I still love you”. It encapsulates how it feels to be trans in such an amazing and accurate way, while also having a bouncy, energetic theme that fits the vibe weirdly well.
