List of characters that by design should be crossplayed

I was looking at a pic of Bridget from Guilty Gear fighting game today. It was a male dressing as a female, but that's exactly what the Bridget character is in the game, a male dressed as a female.

Just wondering what other examples are there of this? (i.e. what characters are by design wearing the opposite sexes clothing)

Mariandale from Ixion Saga DT. Of course since I do have and do wear the costume it isn't technically crossplay because I am wearing the costume of a male character!

The main characters from Princess Princess are boys made to dress as girls for the benefit of their classmates.

Chihiro Fujisaki from Dangan Ronpa went to great lengths to keep the fact that he was actually a boy a secret, but a boy in girl's clothing nonetheless.

This is what I heard:
Poison was originally female in Japan, but when importing the game to the US, they thought it "wasn't okay to hit girls," so they made her a transgendered MTF instead.
Why they thought it was okay to hit a transgendered person, but not a "natural-born" woman, is beyond me.
But that's just what I've heard.

As for OP... There's Mulan if you like Disney cosplays.
There's Dr. Frank N. Furter from Rocky Horror Picture Show, I think. (Not familiar with this one, but I think he counts, no?)

I could have sworn I knew some more, but I'm drawing a blank right now. D:

There's Ayumu from Kore wa Zombie desu ka? that famously fights as a frilly magical girl while still remaining perfectly male.

Then there's also Makota aka Mako-chan from Minami-Ke who crossdresses on occasion.

Of course Ranma from Ranma 1/2.

A somewhat lesser known manga, Pretty Face has the main character Rando pretending to be the twin sister of the girl he has affections for (due to a fiery car accident that caused him to require a face transplant-that was botched into giving him a female face).

I don't think that counts lol Isn't it that he turns into a girl? That's not a boy dressed as a girl, but a girl dressed as a girl..He completely changes gender right?

Also that was kinda what I thought about the whole Poison thing..Wasn't sure exactly..

Haruhi Fujioka from Ouran High School Host CLub. Her dressing as a guy is like half the plot of the whole anime.

Yuki from Moyashimon is a guy that after a few episodes in the series, basically disappears and it turns out has been dressing up as a Goth Lolita where he works as an employee for a liquor store that he eventually begins to own...I think...lol The story stuff with Yuki confuses me a tad.

One of the main characters from Tokyo Godfathers, Hana, is a "transwoman and former drag queen", from what I read on Wikipedia. Hideyoshi from Baka and Test sometimes wears girl's clothing for one reason or another (like, he played a nurse for theater).

This story is widespread but untrue. I heard it and repeated it for a while myself, but it turns out Poison was always listed as "newhalf" or a Japanese term for MtF transgendered in the Japanese Final Fight manual. Capcom execs have stated some confusing and contradictory things since then, though.

>Comment altered for sensitivity:
In anime there is a trope called "traps" used to refer to males who pass as attractive females. A good google brought me this:

That really depends on the person. "Trap" is a word that people call the transgendered community, but is one that isn't very well liked and most people do not like being called that. Most of the transgendered community would be very upset that you said that actually.
