Per trap, a female character who looks or acts male. Most likely also dresses like a male, although unlike mere crossdressing the character is assumed by others to be male until demonstrated otherwise.

Often indicated on Pixiv by the 男装 tag (disguising oneself as a man). See also tomboy, which may overlap.
