The Ape Escape series—specifically Ape Escape 2 and Ape Escape 3—features Yellow Monkey, an effeminate antagonist. The Ape Escape wiki states that Yellow Monkey is male and wishes to be female. In Ape Escape 3, Yellow Monkey offers to go on a date with the player-character rather than fighting him, but the player-character chooses to fight. This scene was censored in localisation.
