Mohini came during samundra manthan to treat devas with amritam. She also came other times like to kill evil bhasmasura demon.

Is mohini the only avataram which came from opposite gender god?

Or other devas or devis have similar opposite gender avatarams.

Please don't include shiva-shakti ardhanarishwaram or similar forms as they are mixtures of two genders.
