* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'':
** Kaorin though the "Ambiguously" steadily breaks down over the course of the series and becomes TransparentCloset (though she claims it's a case of SingleTargetSexuality). It starts getting lampshaded by the other characters including one point where Osaka just flat out asks her if she's gay or not. It's obvious she likes Sakaki though there is vagueness if she's bi or gay. She could be a heavily closeted lesbian, Sakaki could be her one exception, or she could be bisexual.
** Nyamo fits the LesbianJock trope and many fans have guessed that the only reason she stays close to [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Yukari]] is because of romantic feelings. According to the manga, she was in an all-girls high school however Yukari blackmails her with a NoodleIncident involving a love letter. From her reaction, it's likely Nyamo was the one who gave the letter rather than received it. It's never mentioned who she gave the letter to, however the all-girl setting implies it was to a girl. Still, Nyamo seems interested in men and getting married to one some day.

According to it was never confirmed whether she's actually in love with Sakaki, or simply [[{{Fangirl}} fangirling]] really, [[MistakenForGay REALLY, hard]] over her. The closest the manga, series comes to addressing the issue was when Osaka asked Kaorin if she was gay, in an all-girls high school however Yukari blackmails the ''"10th Anniversary Omnibus"''. She tells Osaka that the correct term is "lesbian," then says her with a NoodleIncident involving a love letter. From her reaction, it's likely Nyamo was the one who gave the letter rather than received it. It's never mentioned who attraction to Sakaki is "teenage thing"; adding she gave the letter to, however the all-girl setting implies it was to wouldn't mind if Sakaki were a girl. Still, Nyamo seems interested in men and getting married to one some day.guy.

** Kaworu Nagisa's behavior towards Shinji (who is himself AmbiguouslyBi) and their interactions have been hotly debated since the show aired. A [[HoYay homosexual subtext]] clearly exists, and is carried through to both AlternateContinuity works and some official artwork, but it's never made clear whether this is all there is or if more layers exist. Shinji, being so starved for affection, might see Kaworu as a parental figure or some other source of familial intimacy. On the other side, there's the possibility that familial and sexual affection may not be mutually exclusive for Shinji due to his desperation and traumatic upbringing. There are also arguments that Kaworu is just a FishOutOfWater and does not realize that he's making suggestive comments, or that human sexuality is completely irrelevant to him [[spoiler:since he's an Angel]]. In ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion 1.0'', Kaworu awakens on the moon to promptly say "I'm looking forward to knowing you, Shinji Ikari." As {{lampshaded}} with many lulz by the fansubbing group, the Japanese word used can mean "to know in the biblical sense". And right after that he says he's gonna make Shinji "happy" this time... Approximately '''half''' of ''Rebuild 3.0'' is devoted to Kaworu and Shinji's budding relationship [[spoiler:before Kaworu is horribly killed]]. Kaworu describing them playing the piano together like they're having sex isn't even the gayest thing he does. It doesn't help that his original English voice actor had a slight lisp, an old stereotype of gay men. Whether this was done on purpose or not is unknown.

* In ''Manga/AirGear'' guys who ride on the flame road have a tendency for this. Kazu and Spit Fire are ambigous,[[StraightGay Aeon]] however is not.
* Kai (Kaisuke in the manga) from ''Manga/{{AKIRA}}'' is [[{{Bishonen}} short, slim, well-dressed, girlishly faced,]] and can knock a guy through a window. Being relatively sensitive and implied to have a crush on Kaneda in the manga (he joyfully [[TheGlomp glomps]] him when he finds out he's alive) and Yamagata in the anime, he's [[{{Fanon}} often percieved as a young homosexual.]]
* Kurotobi of ''Manga/{{Amatsuki}}''. He constantly hits on Toki, calls him cute and touches him a lot.



* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' has a very subtle example, with Kirishima. It's stated that his favorite thing is "Manly Guys", which by itself is already pretty complicated. He shows no interest overall in any girl, but the amount of time he spends talking with or about Bakugou, besides his [[spoiler: fight to convince everybody to help rescue him]], even more than Midoriya, who is his childhood friend, make it sound like a crush. In recent Halloween art for "My Hero Academia Smash!!!", he is seen dressed as Little Red Riding Hood gleefully running from a half-naked Bakugou. At this point, if Kirishima ''isn't'' gay, it might just cause a bit of an uproar.
* Kazuki from ''Manga/GetBackers''. He was raised to be like a woman, he looks like a woman, he has long flowing hair, he is always surrounded by men, and Ban jokes about him and Juubei being like a married couple. He did show interest in one girl, but she looks like a boy and is actually a computerized being. He has never said a word about marrying and having children, even though he's the heir to the Fuuchouin clan and all its associated combat arts.
* Everyone in ''Anime/{{Gankutsuou}}'', except Eugenie Danglars who is unambiguously straight. Extremely ironic, considering that she is as unambiguously lesbian in the original novel as 19th century literature could hint.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Tucker, though despite the way he dresses, he has a ''very'' deep, masculine voice, but still manages to be flamboyant.
** Burgh, a fashion designer who wears tight pants and a scarf.
** Zoey is usually claimed to be this, for her short hair and habit of dressing almost exclusively in boyish pantsuits for contests, and being ''very'' touchy-feely with Dawn.
** James is often the subject of [[FlameWar discussion]] as to whether he's CampGay (often crossdresses, campy mannerisms and obsession with his looks) or CampStraight (crossdressers are usually hetero, straight {{Bishonen}} often have campy mannerisms, and he's had several crushes on girls including [''very'' briefly] the psychopathic Jessie-lookalike Jessebelle). The dub dialogue usually exaggerates the former while also adding a few confusing signposts in the other direction; given this is ''Pokémon'', it's unlikely the question will ever get an answer.
** Pokemon themselves are no exception to this. Meowth has a FoeYay driven relationship with Pikachu (it changed to straight HoYay at least once), has had homoerotic fantasy spots about Giovanni, and has fallen for James on one occasion (due to mood-altering Shuckle juice). Ash's Oshawott has the same sort of adoration towards Ash as Chikorita, Aipom, and Gliscor had; the former two of them are confirmed to be female and in love with Ash at one point.
* Bugsy in ''Manga/PokemonGoldenBoys''. He's a young {{bishonen}} boy, even more so than in the games. He's constantly blushing and acting sweet around Gold. You may think this is just his personality, but he acts differently around other people.
* Daley Wong and Linna Yamazaki from ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis Tokyo 2040'' share both similar backgrounds and extremely ambiguous sexuality, though nothing is ever admitted outright. Linna's reaction to the resident biker chick and bad girl getting a boyfriend is telling enough however, as is the fact that she spends the next couple of episodes moping about it. Poor Linna...

to:

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' [[EveryoneIsBi Near everyone]] in ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' has a very subtle example, with Kirishima. It's stated their gay moments, though there are some that stand out even amongst them:
** Poland could be the poster child for this trope. The only thing stopping him from being fabulously CampGay is the fact
that his favorite thing sexuality is "Manly Guys", which never stated or touched upon.
** Italy has a high, girly voice (said voice being
by itself is already the same seiyuu as the below-mentioned Fai and sounding quite similar), a tendency to sleep naked with his male "friend" Germany, when growing up he wore a dress and was often mistaken for a girl, and when younger (Chibitalia) he had a romance going with the (male) Holy Roman Empire. He still likes pretty complicated. He shows no women.
** England is very {{tsundere}}, and is the only one of the main eight characters to never show
interest overall in any girl, but women -- when the amount cast is asked what kind of time girl they would like, he's the only one who doesn't answer, albeit due to a "loss of time". England has also had ShipTease with several male characters, mostly the implication that he spends has a crush on America. There's also when he infiltrates Italy and manages to blend right in....until he doesn't flirt with the girls. (Though compared to a lot of places in the world, Britain is a lot more reserved when it comes to hitting on people, regardless of gender.)[[AmbiguouslyBi Plus he does show interest in Hungary in the anime dub.]]
** Germany, another {{tsundere}}, is in love with Italy, and the fandom often interprets ''Buon San Valentino'' as Germany's ComingOutStory. However, it's possible Germany [[AmbiguouslyBi is sexually attracted to women as well.]] To make matters more confusing, he is extremely awkward when
talking with women or talking about Bakugou, besides women, which could be interpreted either way.
** [[PsychopathicManchild Russia]] is often shown [[BlushSticker blushing]], {{giggling| villain}}, winking, giving off a pink flowery aura, and [[MangaEffects sending "pressure" in the form of little pink hearts]]. He is implied to have [[StalkerWithACrush crushes]] on at least three male characters, especially Lithuania and China. He also greets men with a kiss on the lips, but this is only because of
his [[spoiler: fight cultural traditions. {{Lampshaded}} by America, who declares Russia is a "bad guy" for this greeting, implying Russia may be invoking the DepravedHomosexual or DepravedBisexual (and Russia "offers" to convince everybody "make his gums bleed" after he says this). Lastly, there's that he refuses to help rescue him]], marry Belarus, the only person actually willing to "become one" with him, even though he acknowledges she's a very beautiful girl...but this could ''EASILY'' be because she's even [[{{Yandere}} more mentally unstable]] than Midoriya, who is him, and [[BrotherSisterIncest his childhood friend, make it sound like own sister]].
* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'':
** Kaorin though the "Ambiguously" steadily breaks down over the course of the series and becomes TransparentCloset (though she claims it's
a crush. In recent Halloween art for "My Hero Academia Smash!!!", he is seen dressed as Little Red Riding Hood gleefully running from a half-naked Bakugou. At this point, if Kirishima ''isn't'' gay, it might case of SingleTargetSexuality). It starts getting lampshaded by the other characters including one point where Osaka just cause flat out asks her if she's gay or not. It's obvious she likes Sakaki though there is vagueness if she's bi or gay. She could be a bit heavily closeted lesbian, Sakaki could be her one exception, or she could be bisexual.
** Nyamo fits the LesbianJock trope and many fans have guessed that the only reason she stays close to [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Yukari]] is because
of romantic feelings. According to the manga, she was in an uproar.all-girls high school however Yukari blackmails her with a NoodleIncident involving a love letter. From her reaction, it's likely Nyamo was the one who gave the letter rather than received it. It's never mentioned who she gave the letter to, however the all-girl setting implies it was to a girl. Still, Nyamo seems interested in men and getting married to one some day.
* Later volumes of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' have Carla Alvarez Santonia, unconditionally loyal {{Bifauxnen}} bodyguard of Lucrezia de Dormentaire. It's not the crossdressing that makes her suspect, but the fact that her charge is a ''[[ReallyGetsAround very]]'' [[AnythingThatMoves openly bisexual hedonist]] who sleeps with most of her servants, male or female - [[SubordinateExcuse all of which are quite happy with the arrangement.]]
* Allaindelon in ''Manga/{{Beelzebub}}'' is Ambiguously ''MachoCamp''. On the one hand, he has a daughter. On the other hand... ''every other aspect of his character and line of his dialogue''.
* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'': Owen and Laban, who are both HeterosexualLifePartners, have a StupidSexyFlanders moment towards [[{{Bishonen}} Griffith]] and desperately look for each other after they're separated in war.

* Kazuki from ''Manga/GetBackers''. ''Manga/BlackButler''
** [[CreepyChild Alois Trancy]] in the second season of the {{anime}}.
He was raised to be like a woman, he looks like a woman, he has long flowing hair, he is always surrounded by men, alternates between being AxCrazy and Ban jokes about sweet and cheerful, basically flirts with Sebastian via leaning into him and Juubei being pronouncing that he "smells good", is [[HoYay very attached]] to his butler Claude, treats his one female maidservant like absolute crap (he [[EyeScream stabs out her eye]] with his fingers just for looking at him and later mocks her for it), dresses and acts very effeminately and flamboyantly and has a married couple. girlish face. [[spoiler:Well, he was ambiguous until episode 5 where he outright flirted with Ciel, licked his ear, and stated that he "wants" him. And in episode 11 when he tells Claude "I wanted your love."]]
** Also, Finny of Ciel's household staff: [[DudeLooksLikeALady girly looks]], wears barrettes in his hair, {{Keet}}, a bit of a crybaby, and tends to go into fanboy mode over Sebastian.
** And Claude. It becomes painstakingly obvious after he brainwashes Ciel, though maybe he just really wanted Ciel's soul...
** Sebastian, believe it or not. Exhibit A. Stilettos. Exhibit B. The way he stands and walks, particularly prominent in the first couple of volumes. Exhibit C. Doesn't he say he finds Ash more attractive than Angela? Exhibit D. And, of course, fighting over Ciel with Claude, which leads to both Alois and Grell implying that he's in love with Ciel. Sebastian doesn't deny it, and, in fact, agrees while fighting Claude in episode... 10? That he's not fighting for Ciel's soul...
* Creed from ''Manga/BlackCat'' is never explicitly stated outright to be gay. However, pretty much every single character in the series notices his [[StalkerWithACrush romantic obsession]] with Train (other than [[ObliviousToLove Train himself]]).
He did show interest dresses in one girl, but she looks like a boy very flamboyant, feathery clothing, and is actually a computerized being. He [[SuckMyRose constantly seen with roses]] (he has never said a word about marrying freakin' bath filled with them!). He also seems rather resentful and having children, angry at most of the females in the series.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''
** The true nature of Sui-Feng's attachment to [[SexyMentor her mentor]], [[AmbiguouslyBrown Yoruichi]], and her sexuality, in general, is an often debated subject. Many believe that she's [[BodyguardCrush in love with Yoruichi]] and cite [[NeverGotToSayGoodbye her emotional breakdown]] at the end of their fight, along with the time she tried to take pictures of Yoruichi naked[[note]]as her part of a project for the Shinigami Womens Association[[/note]] as evidence. Others dismiss it as Sui-Feng either [[{{fangirl}} fangirling]] over her, or feel she only looks up to Yoruichi as [[CoolBigSis a 'big sister' figure]] (especially those who [[FanPreferredCouple ship Yoruichi with Urahara]]). Either way, the anime team ran away with the subtext, to point of it being 'writing on the wall'.
** Amongst the hollows, there is actor-wannabe, pink-haired, [[TheDandy flamboyant]] [[{{Bishonen}} Szayel Aporro Granz]] who becomes [[UpToEleven
even though more]] bishonen when he releases his sword, named ''Fornicarás'' (kanji: 'evil promiscuous queen/princess', Spanish: 'you will fornicate'), which he's also willing to [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar deep-throat]]. His fights are accompanied by lewd, disturbing comments regarding the sexiness of his opponents and whether or not they're his type and when his clothes are damaged, he will stop fighting to get changed before continuing. He'll even use his cloning attack to give his opponents fashion make-overs.
** [[CampGay Charlotte Cuuhlhourne]], who is incredibly proud of his [[MachoCamp beauty]], believes
he's the heir to the Fuuchouin clan most fabulous thing alive and all its associated combat arts.
* Everyone in ''Anime/{{Gankutsuou}}'', except Eugenie Danglars who is unambiguously straight. Extremely ironic, considering that she is as unambiguously lesbian in the original novel as 19th century literature could hint.

[[ThisMeansWar fight]] anyone who [[BerserkButton disagrees]]. [[{{Bishonen}} Yumichika]] [[HilarityEnsues disagreed]].



* Itsuki Koizumi from ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' seems to like [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace invading the main male character's personal space a little too much]] in the {{anime}}, and in the novels especially he makes it quite clear that he trusts and likes Kyon. He claims to act the way he does because Haruhi expects it and would make it real if he didn't, which would be a plausible explanation if he actually did so while Haruhi is watching. Also, in the 4th novel [[spoiler:his alternate universe self admits to having a crush on Haruhi]], but this isn't brought up in the main storyline - although many of his actions and words towards Haruhi, especially his constant claiming of being "the expert of her heart" imply some secret affection for her. Whatever the case may be, Itsuki's bond with Kyon could be seen as a fumbled attempt at a bromance or an actual romance slowly developing. PlayedForLaughs in ''Manga/HaruhiChan'', in which Itsuki makes blatant innuendos towards Kyon with no indication whether or not he's joking. And then there's the time when Kyon [[ItMakesSenseInContext suddenly confesses his love to Itsuki]]. Cue the latter having the most G-rated possible depiction of an orgasm.
* ''Anime/YuGiOh'':
** In ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', Doctor Chronos/ Dr. Crowler dresses ''very'' flamboyantly, although there was one episode where he - like all the other males - seemed attracted to Dark Magician Girl. Also, there was Johan/Jesse Anderson, Judai's new [[HoYay best friend]] who wears frilly shirts, uses the ace card Rainbow Dragon, and spends a little too much time with Judai for us to believe he's completely straight. His subtext with Judai is spread so thick that it's noted on in-universe.
** ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'' has Mr. Heartland, an {{Expy}} of Pegasus (and shockingly enough, voiced by the same actor) who comes off just as gay, if not more! [[SissyVillain (But far more evil.)]]
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''
** The true nature of Sui-Feng's attachment to [[SexyMentor her mentor]], [[AmbiguouslyBrown Yoruichi]], and her sexuality, in general, is an often debated subject. Many believe that she's [[BodyguardCrush in love with Yoruichi]] and cite [[NeverGotToSayGoodbye her emotional breakdown]] at the end of their fight, along with the time she tried to take pictures of Yoruichi naked[[note]]as her part of a project for the Shinigami Womens Association[[/note]] as evidence.

* General Blue in early parts of ''Manga/DragonBall''. He is known to find women disgusting, Bulma and Krillin come right out and call him gay but he strenuously denies it, and barely an episode before he gets a [[DroppedABridgeOnHim bridge dropped on him]], he's revealed to be {{Shotacon}}.
** ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' has Zarbon, who has an extremely feminine face, keeps his hair in a long, loose braid, and wears lots of jewelry, not to mention shiny black thigh-high boots. He's also apparently rather obsessed with his appearance. Frieza is questionable as well, having extremely feminine mannerisms in the Japanese and a female voice in the dub (though changed as of ''Anime/DragonBallKai'', it still sounds quite feminine).
** Goten and Trunks have been very tight friends literally their entire lives and, as teenagers, quite often spill over into HoYay. Trunks even shows no interest in women, and his mother went to the extreme of putting him in a office building shaped like a penis and filling it with hot women; he seems outright intimidated by both. Whether their being FusionDance partners makes this better or worse is debatable. In the second ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' ending, it begins with all the various couples being shown together: Goku and Chi-Chi, Gohan and Videl, Vegeta and Bulma, Krillin and Eighteen... and then cuts right to Trunks and Goten walking along, in the same style. Apparently the creators consider them "life partners" after one fashion or another.
** At the end of ''Anime/DragonBallZ,'' when the Z fighters are competing in the tournament, Trunks is paired with a leather-bound muscle man who blows him a kiss and makes a comment to the effect of "Oh, I got the cute one."
** Whis is campy, feminine, and blushes and smiles when his male boss accidentally flashes him in the third episode of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''.

He dresses in a flamboyant outfit including speedos and a distinctive butterfly mask, and he certainly has a lot of FoeYay with all the various couples being shown together: Goku and Chi-Chi, Gohan and Videl, Vegeta and Bulma, Krillin and Eighteen... and then cuts right to Trunks and Goten walking along, in the same style. Apparently the creators consider them "life partners" after one fashion or another.
** At the end of ''Anime/DragonBallZ,'' when the Z fighters are competing in the tournament, Trunks is paired with a leather-bound muscle man who blows him a kiss and makes a comment to the effect of "Oh, I got the cute one."
** Whis is campy, feminine, and blushes and smiles when his male boss accidentally flashes him in the third episode of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''.
Kazuki.



* ''Manga/InuYasha''
** Jakotsu, who hits on pretty much every male character he comes into contact with (except Bankotsu), and has an unwanted attraction to Inuyasha, to the point where, [[spoiler:in his sadistic version of love, tries to torture him to death because of it.]] After TheReveal that Jakotsu was the only completely loyal member of the Band of Seven, Bankostu shared a [[LoveBubbles bubbly]] HeadbuttOfLove with him.
** Jaken started following Sesshomaru because he thought Sesshoumaru was beautiful. This is anime filler only and never happened in the manga.
* Ayame Sohma from ''Manga/FruitsBasket''. Long, feminine hair; feminine clothing; has been seen wearing an actual dress. He acts rather romantic and melodramatic, and his voice (at least in the dub) is... well... stereotypically gay. He and Shigure [[HoYay hit on each other with alarming regularity]]. And yet, after all this, he's a totally straight pervert who is revealed to be dating his (female) shop assistant, Mine. Even Ayame's American voice actor basically said in the most polite way he could that he didn't want to portray Ayame as a CampGay stereotype because he didn't want to be offensive. There's also that one scene where Kyou wakes up to find Ayame sleeping next to him in bed. He goes into a shocked state and Ayame mumbles "I'm still sleepy", grabs Kyou and tries to cuddle with him. We then see him covered in bandages from after Kyou beat the crap out of him and Ayame states he snuck into Kyou's room because Yuki had locked him out of his room when Ayame tried to sneak in.

to:

* ''Manga/InuYasha''
** Jakotsu, who hits on pretty much every
Every single major male lead in ''Manga/DeathNote'' is either this or ambiguously {{Asexual|ity}}.
** [[VillainProtagonist Light Yagami]] makes it very clear that he is not attracted to women, as well as [[EffeminateMisogynisticGuy thinking them useless and annoying.]] A very blatant example of this is ignoring the sexy girl in lingerie to use the computer behind her. He has massive amounts of FoeYay with L, such as being chained to him for 50 days and the infamous foot massage scene in the anime. He's often very well-dressed and at one point [[RealMenWearPink he wears a pink shirt]] when hanging with Matsuda in Aoyama when [[NotADate he's trying to meet the second Kira]] ([[SamusIsAGirl who he and the investigators assumed was male]]). When hiding pieces of the notebook Ryuk remarks on Light's [[TextileWorkIsFeminine sewing skills.]] He wears a pink butterfly belt-buckle in the anime opening, and in the manga at one point he wears a corset in order to hide the Death Note (while in the anime [[TrouserSpace he just shoves it down his pants)]]. WordOfGod also says that Light is "probably not capable of loving a woman," and also that [[AllGaysLoveTheatre his acting skills are 10/10.]]
** [[HeroAntagonist L]]. OK, so he does watch footage of Misa Amane strapped up against a board for a long time and does confess "I could actually fall for you" to her, but that doesn't stop him handcuffing himself to Light, as said before, and Light is the only
character aside from Watari to whom he comes into contact gives his 'phone number.
** Near takes all the FoeYay Light had
with (except Bankotsu), L to [[StalkerWithACrush a creepy, rape-y, one sided extreme.]] He calls Light a lot and then hangs up without talking, pulls... odd faces when thinking of Light and in the manga it's revealed that Near [[spoiler:didn't entirely want to kill Light,]] he wanted to keep him. And that's before we even get onto the FoeYay chemistry that is more commonly interpreted between him and Mello.
** Mello takes this trope so far as to be mistaken for a girl by a lot of readers/viewers until he is referred to as a "he" by other characters. He does not, like the other senior Mafia men, cuddle up with girls, dresses in tight leather long before he rides a motorbike for the first time in the series,
has an unwanted attraction a VERY girly fur-lined coat, dons black lipstick and nail polish, ignores Hal Lidner's coquetry when she talks to Inuyasha, him from her shower, licks chocolate bars suggestively in the company of other men, and lives with AmbiguouslyBi [[BadassBookworm loose-cannon geek]] Matt in a house full of mannequins. He also seems unenthused when Matt points out that switching jobs would mean getting to spy on a cute girl (Misa.) Did we miss anything?
** Ryuk, who wears tight leather, rings, makeup, and a heart-shaped earring [[NoYay and spends almost all his screentime and shares a bed with]] a {{Bishonen}} teenager.
** The elegant, well-manicured, immaculately-dressed and long-haired Yotsuba employee Reiji Namikawa. While almost all the other businessmen are either cuddling up with Misa's modelling friends or having a drink in her flat, he's busy looking at the artwork. Oh, and he wears a silver heart-shaped ring.
** Rem's strange (and for a Shinigami, highly unusual and controversial) relationship with Misa Amane. (She says it's platonic, but who knows?) She also [[spoiler:dies for her to rescue her and keeps Light alive just to keep her happy.]] That's some serious platonism!
** Teru Mikami, who surpasses both L and Near in his fixation for Light (although for markedly different reasons). [[GymBunny He also spends a lot of time working out at the gym]].
** Beyond Birthday, of the spin-off novel ''LightNovel/AnotherNote'', is completely obsessed with another man [[spoiler:[[IJustWantToBeYou
to the point where, [[spoiler:in his sadistic version of love, tries to torture him to death because of it.]] After TheReveal that Jakotsu was he copies his appearance and mannerisms]]]] and is a self-described as "[[{{Seme}} an aggressive top]]."
** Sayu, Light's little sister, is Ambiguously Lesbian- she first says that she "doesn't want a boyfriend." Then she exclaims that Misa is "my type!" And she smiles when leafing through one of Light's [[PornStash magazines]]. The ambiguity here is that she does fangirl over Hideki Ryuga (the pop star), so she might be BiTheWay if
the only completely loyal member fangirling is sexual in nature.
* ''Manga/DGrayMan'' has Kanda, who has an [[{{Tsundere}} easy-to-provoke personality]], a {{Bishonen}} design, takes a lot
of the Band care of Seven, Bankostu shared a [[LoveBubbles bubbly]] HeadbuttOfLove with him.
** Jaken started following Sesshomaru because he thought Sesshoumaru was beautiful. This is anime filler only
his long hair, and never happened in the manga.
* Ayame Sohma from ''Manga/FruitsBasket''. Long, feminine hair; feminine clothing;
has been seen wearing an actual dress. He acts rather apparent lack of interest in any romance. Ironically, in later chapters [[spoiler:it seems almost certain that he isn't gay after all]], and in a FourthWallMailSlot interview Allen speculates that Kanda has no romantic interest in anything except Mugen, [[CargoShip his sword]].
* General Blue in early parts of ''Manga/DragonBall''. He is known to find women disgusting, Bulma
and melodramatic, Krillin come right out and his voice (at least in the dub) is... well... stereotypically gay. He call him gay but he strenuously denies it, and Shigure [[HoYay hit barely an episode before he gets a [[DroppedABridgeOnHim bridge dropped on each other with alarming regularity]]. And yet, after all this, him]], he's a totally straight pervert who is revealed to be dating {{Shotacon}}.
** ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' has Zarbon, who has an extremely feminine face, keeps
his (female) shop assistant, Mine. Even Ayame's American voice actor basically said hair in a long, loose braid, and wears lots of jewelry, not to mention shiny black thigh-high boots. He's also apparently rather obsessed with his appearance. Frieza is questionable as well, having extremely feminine mannerisms in the most polite way he could that he didn't want Japanese and a female voice in the dub (though changed as of ''Anime/DragonBallKai'', it still sounds quite feminine).
** Goten and Trunks have been very tight friends literally their entire lives and, as teenagers, quite often spill over into HoYay. Trunks even shows no interest in women, and his mother went
to portray Ayame as a CampGay stereotype because he didn't want to be offensive. There's also that one scene where Kyou wakes up to find Ayame sleeping next to the extreme of putting him in bed. He goes into a shocked state office building shaped like a penis and Ayame mumbles "I'm still sleepy", grabs Kyou and tries to cuddle filling it with him. We hot women; he seems outright intimidated by both. Whether their being FusionDance partners makes this better or worse is debatable. In the second ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' ending, it begins with all the various couples being shown together: Goku and Chi-Chi, Gohan and Videl, Vegeta and Bulma, Krillin and Eighteen... and then see him covered cuts right to Trunks and Goten walking along, in bandages from the same style. Apparently the creators consider them "life partners" after Kyou beat one fashion or another.
** At
the crap out end of him and Ayame states he snuck into Kyou's room because Yuki had locked him out of his room ''Anime/DragonBallZ,'' when Ayame tried the Z fighters are competing in the tournament, Trunks is paired with a leather-bound muscle man who blows him a kiss and makes a comment to sneak in.the effect of "Oh, I got the cute one."
** Whis is campy, feminine, and blushes and smiles when his male boss accidentally flashes him in the third episode of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''.
* Iggy, robot sidekick to ''ActionGirl'' Re-L Mayer in ''Anime/ErgoProxy'', spends a substantial amount of time gossiping and trying to get Re-L to go shopping. Not to mention this was the intention of both the original [[WordOfGod filmmakers and the company in charge of the dub]].



* [[EveryoneIsBi Near everyone]] in ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' has their gay moments, though there are some that stand out even amongst them:
** Poland could be the poster child for this trope. The only thing stopping him from being fabulously CampGay is the fact that his sexuality is never stated or touched upon.
** Italy has a high, girly voice (said voice being by the same seiyuu as the below-mentioned Fai and sounding quite similar), a tendency to sleep naked with his male "friend" Germany, when growing up he wore a dress and was often mistaken for a girl, and when younger (Chibitalia) he had a romance going with the (male) Holy Roman Empire. He still likes pretty women.
** England is very {{tsundere}}, and is the only one of the main eight characters to never show interest in women -- when the cast is asked what kind of girl they would like, he's the only one who doesn't answer, albeit due to a "loss of time". England has also had ShipTease with several male characters, mostly the implication that he has a crush on America. There's also when he infiltrates Italy and manages to blend right in....until he doesn't flirt with the girls. (Though compared to a lot of places in the world, Britain is a lot more reserved when it comes to hitting on people, regardless of gender.)[[AmbiguouslyBi Plus he does show interest in Hungary in the anime dub.]]
** Germany, another {{tsundere}}, is in love with Italy, and the fandom often interprets ''Buon San Valentino'' as Germany's ComingOutStory. However, it's possible Germany [[AmbiguouslyBi is sexually attracted to women as well.]] To make matters more confusing, he is extremely awkward when talking with women or talking about women, which could be interpreted either way.
** [[PsychopathicManchild Russia]] is often shown [[BlushSticker blushing]], {{giggling| villain}}, winking, giving off a pink flowery aura, and [[MangaEffects sending "pressure" in the form of little pink hearts]]. He is implied to have [[StalkerWithACrush crushes]] on at least three male characters, especially Lithuania and China. He also greets men with a kiss on the lips, but this is only because of his cultural traditions. {{Lampshaded}} by America, who declares Russia is a "bad guy" for this greeting, implying Russia may be invoking the DepravedHomosexual or DepravedBisexual (and Russia "offers" to "make his gums bleed" after he says this). Lastly, there's that he refuses to marry Belarus, the only person actually willing to "become one" with him, even though he acknowledges she's a very beautiful girl...but this could ''EASILY'' be because she's even [[{{Yandere}} more mentally unstable]] than him, and [[BrotherSisterIncest his own sister]].
* Creed from ''Manga/BlackCat'' is never explicitly stated outright to be gay. However, pretty much every single character in the series notices his [[StalkerWithACrush romantic obsession]] with Train (other than [[ObliviousToLove Train himself]]). He dresses in very flamboyant, feathery clothing, and is [[SuckMyRose constantly seen with roses]] (he has a freakin' bath filled with them!). He also seems rather resentful and angry at most of the females in the series.
* In ''Manga/AirGear'' guys who ride on the flame road have a tendency for this. Kazu and Spit Fire are ambigous,[[StraightGay Aeon]] however is not.
* Even when CLAMP's EveryoneIsBi policy is taken into account, Fai from ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' still deserves an honorable mention.
* Touko from ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' blatantly flirts with Shiki, calling her 'a cute young lady along ''her'' line of fancy' the first time they meet. And then we have WordOfGod stating that the first thing she does [[spoiler:upon activating her BodyBackupDrive]] is hunt for pretty girls.
* Escargon from the ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'' [[Anime/KirbyOfTheStars anime]]. It's pretty clear by episode 55 that he's in love with Dedede; he even uses "aishiteru" in his song at the beginning of the episode, and it's known that "aishiteru" is a stronger way of telling someone you love them. He even gets all flustered when he finds out Dedede heard the entire song. In the English dub, he was voiced with an impression of famous TransparentCloset actor Paul Lynde.

to:

* [[EveryoneIsBi Near everyone]] Kazuki of ''Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor'' certainly qualifies. At least three girls have fallen in ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' has love with him, and he's either [[CluelessChickMagnet oblivious to their gay moments, though there are some that stand out even amongst them:
** Poland could be the poster child for this trope. The only thing stopping him from being fabulously CampGay is the fact that his sexuality is never stated
feelings]] or touched upon.
** Italy has a high, girly voice (said voice being by the same seiyuu as the below-mentioned Fai and sounding quite similar), a tendency to sleep naked with his male "friend" Germany, when growing up
he wore a dress and was often mistaken for a girl, and when younger (Chibitalia) he had a romance going with the (male) Holy Roman Empire. He still likes pretty women.
** England is very {{tsundere}},
knows and is completely uninterested. Then there's his utter devotion to [[ChildhoodFriend Soushi]], and the only one show makes sure to let the viewers know that they are the most important person to each other. He even [[spoiler: vows to wait ''forever'' for Soushi to return at the end of the main eight first season, and flies into a rage during the movie when Festum show up instead]].
* ''Manga/FairyTail'' has several examples - Freed Justine, Kagura Mikazuchi, and Cana. Freed hero-worships Laxus while Kagura looks up to Erza as a big sister, but at times, it seems like they have crushes on their respective idols (not helped by Kagura [[spoiler:kissing Kagura on the lips]] and the anime [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderizing]] Freed to make him wonder what Laxus would do before making any decision). Meanwhile, Cana has a habit of [[SkinshipGrope feeling up]] just about any attractive woman in later chapters (her most common target being Lucy).
* On ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' Siesta remarks that some think Agnes is into girls. [[FakeOutMakeOut There was that one time with Louise]]...
* ''Anime/{{Free}}'': Almost all the major
characters to never are males show show zero interest in women -- when girls romantically and have very VERY intense friendships with at least one other male character.
* Ayame Sohma from ''Manga/FruitsBasket''. Long, feminine hair; feminine clothing; has been seen wearing an actual dress. He acts rather romantic and melodramatic, and his voice (at least in
the cast is asked what kind of girl they would like, dub) is... well... stereotypically gay. He and Shigure [[HoYay hit on each other with alarming regularity]]. And yet, after all this, he's a totally straight pervert who is revealed to be dating his (female) shop assistant, Mine.

Ayame tried to sneak in.



** Garfiel from the ''Brotherhood'' anime, the only reason why he isn't officially acknowledged as homo/bisexual is because the series doesn't state that directly.
* ''Manga/DGrayMan'' has Kanda, who has an [[{{Tsundere}} easy-to-provoke personality]], a {{Bishonen}} design, takes a lot of care of his long hair, and has an apparent lack of interest in any romance. Ironically, in later chapters [[spoiler:it seems almost certain that he isn't gay after all]], and in a FourthWallMailSlot interview Allen speculates that Kanda has no romantic interest in anything except Mugen, [[CargoShip his sword]].

to:

** Garfiel from the manga and ''Brotherhood'' anime, the only reason why he isn't officially acknowledged as homo/bisexual is because the series doesn't state that directly.
* ''Manga/DGrayMan'' Everyone in ''Anime/{{Gankutsuou}}'', except Eugenie Danglars who is unambiguously straight. Extremely ironic, considering that she is as unambiguously lesbian in the original novel as 19th century literature could hint.
* Kazuki from ''Manga/GetBackers''. He was raised to be like a woman, he looks like a woman, he
has Kanda, who has an [[{{Tsundere}} easy-to-provoke personality]], a {{Bishonen}} design, takes a lot of care of his long flowing hair, he is always surrounded by men, and has an apparent lack of Ban jokes about him and Juubei being like a married couple. He did show interest in any romance. Ironically, one girl, but she looks like a boy and is actually a computerized being. He has never said a word about marrying and having children, even though he's the heir to the Fuuchouin clan and all its associated combat arts.
* ''Bio Booster Armor Manga/{{Guyver}}'' has it's fair share of moments.
** Tetsurō Segawa has subtle hints of being possibly gay towards his {{Bromance}}, Sho Fukamachi. His sister Mitzuki has taken various opportunities to paint them
in such light when catching them in moments odd moments such as holding hands with Sho when the two were reaffirming their resolve and friendship. To top it off, he is never seen hitting on women, never flinching or startled when a naked Sho pops up unexpected. Such as when in the manga a Sho clone pops up and he comments on why he's naked due to the heat, and later chapters [[spoiler:it when being busted out of a prison cell in the anime. During the final episode of anime, he encourages and pushes his sister to greet a long thought dead Sho, only for Natski to ask her why he wont himself, which causes him to blush in embarrassment.
** The evil Chronos organization is nearly an exclusively male operated with male exclusive male membership in high ranks and troops. This has led to some ambiguity amongst their leaders and ranks. Supreme leader Archanfel has a girly elfish appearance, and later ends up having a shared mind with and mutual loyalty to fellow Zoalord Imurikum. Imurikum in turn is often shown carrying a Archanfel in his arms. The "Hyper Zoanoid Team Five" members have a big deal of loyalty to one another, but Elagen and Zx-Tole are portrayed in the OVA to a high degree of this trope with lines such as "You have to hold on, I need your strength, I need you!" and "Oh, I'll do anything for you Elegan!".
* Several characters from ''Manga/HanaKimi''.
* Itsuki Koizumi from ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya''
seems almost certain to like [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace invading the main male character's personal space a little too much]] in the {{anime}}, and in the novels especially he makes it quite clear that he trusts and likes Kyon. He claims to act the way he does because Haruhi expects it and would make it real if he didn't, which would be a plausible explanation if he actually did so while Haruhi is watching. Also, in the 4th novel [[spoiler:his alternate universe self admits to having a crush on Haruhi]], but this isn't gay after all]], brought up in the main storyline - although many of his actions and words towards Haruhi, especially his constant claiming of being "the expert of her heart" imply some secret affection for her. Whatever the case may be, Itsuki's bond with Kyon could be seen as a fumbled attempt at a bromance or an actual romance slowly developing. PlayedForLaughs in a FourthWallMailSlot interview Allen speculates ''Manga/HaruhiChan'', in which Itsuki makes blatant innuendos towards Kyon with no indication whether or not he's joking. And then there's the time when Kyon [[ItMakesSenseInContext suddenly confesses his love to Itsuki]]. Cue the latter having the most G-rated possible depiction of an orgasm.
* Father Jelice Bryah of ''Manga/HatenkouYuugi''. {{Lampshaded}} by '''Rahzel''' "I don't recall coming out of some queer's stomach." (She said
that Kanda has no romantic interest in anything except Mugen, [[CargoShip because he was trying to be her father, but given the idiot of a dad she has, he is definitely a huge improvement.)
* ''Manga/HereIsGreenwood'': Kazuhiro Hasukawa, the older brother of main character Kazuya. Has a rather {{bishounen}} look to him and the rumors fly about
his sword]].sexual orientation (he's the nurse in an all-male school). But then again, he's also HappilyMarried (and the ''wife'' is just another of the points of contention the brothers).
* Schrodinger, from ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''. The flouncy, feminine [[CatGirl Cat Boy]] evades this list no longer.



* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'':
** There is an example in Ronove, a BattleButler with NoSenseOfPersonalSpace (especially around Battler, who is his main HoYay target) who get some spends a lot of his free time [[RealMenWearPink baking cookies]]. In the fourth arc, he gets punched in the face, and his nosebleed turns into [[SuckMyRose rose petals]], of all things.
** Going into huge (Visual Novel only) spoiler territory with Umineko, but [[spoiler:what's up with Jessica and Kanon? Did she seriously not notice she was in love with her best friend, who is usually female?]] For that matter, since [[spoiler:Yasu's gender is so ambiguous]], it's hard to tell which relationships in the series are straight and which are gay.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'':
** Kaworu Nagisa's behavior towards Shinji (who is himself AmbiguouslyBi) and their interactions have been hotly debated since the show aired. A [[HoYay homosexual subtext]] clearly exists, and is carried through to both AlternateContinuity works and some official artwork, but it's never made clear whether this is all there is or if more layers exist. Shinji, being so starved for affection, might see Kaworu as a parental figure or some other source of familial intimacy. On the other side, there's the possibility that familial and sexual affection may not be mutually exclusive for Shinji due to his desperation and traumatic upbringing. There are also arguments that Kaworu is just a FishOutOfWater and does not realize that he's making suggestive comments, or that human sexuality is completely irrelevant to him [[spoiler:since he's an Angel]]. In ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion 1.0'', Kaworu awakens on the moon to promptly say "I'm looking forward to knowing you, Shinji Ikari." As {{lampshaded}} with many lulz by the fansubbing group, the Japanese word used can mean "to know in the biblical sense". And right after that he says he's gonna make Shinji "happy" this time... Approximately '''half''' of ''Rebuild 3.0'' is devoted to Kaworu and Shinji's budding relationship [[spoiler:before Kaworu is horribly killed]]. Kaworu describing them playing the piano together like they're having sex isn't even the gayest thing he does. It doesn't help that his original English voice actor had a slight lisp, an old stereotype of gay men. Whether this was done on purpose or not is unknown.
** The manga mostly averts this, however, at least from Shinji's side; as he's creeped out by Kaworu's tendency to invade his personal space and tries to stay away from him as much as he can. In vol. 10, Kaworu uses a kiss to stop Shinji from hyperventilating during a nightmare, and makes advances toward Shinji which he flatly refuses. He later leaves Kaworu's apartment with very little in the way of a good-bye, which upsets Kaworu, although after Kaworu's death, he admits to himself that despite the way he acted, he was attracted to Kaworu, even though he knew he shouldn't like a boy like that.
* Iggy, robot sidekick to ''ActionGirl'' Re-L Mayer in ''Anime/ErgoProxy'', spends a substantial amount of time gossiping and trying to get Re-L to go shopping. Not to mention this was the intention of both the original [[WordOfGod filmmakers and the company in charge of the dub]].
* ''Manga/OnePiece''
** Cross-dressing ballerina kick-ologist Mr. 2 Bon Clay is about as ambiguous as they come. To the point where it's his catchphrase.
** Nami shows little to no interest in men, and comments on the sex appeal of Kalifa during their fight. She also has a RomanticTwoGirlFriendship with Vivi, and they're shown sleeping against each other's shoulders in an opening.
** Zoro is alone among the young male characters (except for Luffy, who is himself [[WordOfGod aromantic and asexual, according to Oda]]) in not displaying obvious attraction to women. He's shown himself to be immune to women's attempts to use DistractedByTheSexy on him, and not in a HeroicWillpower way, either--he doesn't even ''notice.'' On the other hand, he displays a rather telling blush during his anime-only [[AccidentalKiss accidental]] [[AlmostKiss near-kisses]] with [[FoeYay Sanji]]...
* ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'':
** Kyoya, and Tamaki to an extent. They give backrubs and call each other "mommy" and "daddy". Tamaki may be more along the lines of AmbiguouslyBi given how he seems to genuinely enjoy female company, but Kyoya never displays any genuine interest in the club's customers beyond what he can get them to buy. When Tamaki calls the rest of the host club (other than Haruhi) the homosexual supporting cast, Kyoya is annoyed. However, he's only annoyed by the 'supporting' line, he doesn't seem to care that he was called a homosexual.
** The relationship between Mori-senpai and Honey-senpai seems rather suspicious.
** The twins Karou and Hikaru are as ambiguous as they come. They play up the {{Twincest}} angle for all it's worth for the benefit of their fans and to draw customers, but they're often just as close even if they don't have an audience or are completely alone. There's also the probable crush on [[{{Bifauxnen}} Haruhi]] to consider, but that doesn't arise often.
* Schrodinger, from ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''. The flouncy, feminine [[CatGirl Cat Boy]] evades this list no longer.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** Zabuza and Haku have ''something'' going on, and at the very least Haku is intensely devoted to Zabuza, but nothing is explicitly stated.
** Orochimaru, to compliment his MemeticMolester status. Granted, he pervs on girls too, but he seems to much prefer boys.
** Some of Suigetsu's mannerisms and body language could also be interpreted this way, such as the scene where he threatens Sasuke from behind while naked, though his TeethClenchedTeamwork with Karin [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation can be viewed as ]] BelligerentSexualTension.
** Madara Uchiha's obsession with Hashirama is well established, and that was before it was revealed that the Sharingan is activated by a loss of love, and Madara's was activated when he broke off his friendship with Hashirama...
** Gaara shows no interest in the fangirls he gains following the TimeSkip and has a HoYay filled relationship with Naruto. In particular in Chapter 678 when everyone is trapped inside Infinite Tsukuyomi, most of them dreamed about being with their LoveInterest. Gaara dreamed about his family and Naruto. Also, Gaara's [[http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Gaara#Personality page]] on the Naruto Wiki gives us this gem under his personality section:
--> Gaara eventually formed a close friendship with Naruto, viewing the Kohoha ninja as his first true friend, and became very loyal to his decisions, and protective over him as a companion. Gaara also came to view meeting Naruto as the greatest event of his life and believed any price, even the painful life of a jinchūriki was worth the experience. Gaara even forgave Shukaku for his miserable childhood, claiming that it was only because of such a life that he was able to meet Naruto.
* ''Manga/NyanKoi'': Junpei's friend Haruhiko, at least in his mannerisms. He's been known to buy [[{{Hentai}} eroge manga]] and was the one to start peeping on the girls during a FuroScene. However, he was all-too-willing to wear the maid outfit during the school festival...



* Father Jelice Bryah of ''Manga/HatenkouYuugi''. {{Lampshaded}} by '''Rahzel''' "I don't recall coming out of some queer's stomach." (She said that because he was trying to be her father, but given the idiot of a dad she has, he is definitely a huge improvement.)
* Kai (Kaisuke in the manga) from ''Manga/{{AKIRA}}'' is [[{{Bishonen}} short, slim, well-dressed, girlishly faced,]] and can knock a guy through a window. Being relatively sensitive and implied to have a crush on Kaneda in the manga (he joyfully [[TheGlomp glomps]] him when he finds out he's alive) and Yamagata in the anime, he's [[{{Fanon}} often percieved as a young homosexual.]]
* Kurotobi of ''Manga/{{Amatsuki}}''. He constantly hits on Toki, calls him cute and touches him a lot.
* ''Manga/PeacemakerKurogane'': Most of the characters are pretty strongly implied to be gay or bisexual. Heisuke makes more than a few references to men and boys he finds attractive or may or may not have slept with. Saitou, while he may or may not actually be interested in men (who knows with him?), is willing enough to pretend to be for information. And general dynamics of HoYay between various cast members aside, there are always Hijikata and [[DudeLooksLikeALady Okita]], who always seem just one step shy of being an OfficialCouple (with Hijikata's voice actor going so far as to respond to a remark about his character having given up romantic pursuits for his mission with, essentially, "Uh...no"). The shinobi Susumu often cross-dresses (quite convincingly) to gather information, blushes when Tetsunosuke mentions that he and Testsu are friends, and when Tetsunosuke offers him comfort by trying to touch his hand following [[spoiler: his sister's death]] Susumu tightly grabs Tetsunosuke's hand in his. Lastly there's PrettyBoy Suzu, based on his fanboying of Yoshida's sex appeal and his relationship with Tetsu before becoming a DepravedHomosexual in the {{sequel}}.
* ''Manga/BlackButler''
** [[CreepyChild Alois Trancy]] in the second season of the {{anime}}. He alternates between being AxCrazy and sweet and cheerful, basically flirts with Sebastian via leaning into him and pronouncing that he "smells good", is [[HoYay very attached]] to his butler Claude, treats his one female maidservant like absolute crap (he [[EyeScream stabs out her eye]] with his fingers just for looking at him and later mocks her for it), dresses and acts very effeminately and flamboyantly and has a girlish face. [[spoiler:Well, he was ambiguous until episode 5 where he outright flirted with Ciel, licked his ear, and stated that he "wants" him. And in episode 11 when he tells Claude "I wanted your love."]]
** Also, Finny of Ciel's household staff: [[DudeLooksLikeALady girly looks]], wears barrettes in his hair, {{Keet}}, a bit of a crybaby, and tends to go into fanboy mode over Sebastian.
** And Claude. It becomes painstakingly obvious after he brainwashes Ciel, though maybe he just really wanted Ciel's soul...
** Sebastian, believe it or not. Exhibit A. Stilettos. Exhibit B. The way he stands and walks, particularly prominent in the first couple of volumes. Exhibit C. Doesn't he say he finds Ash more attractive than Angela? Exhibit D. And, of course, fighting over Ciel with Claude, which leads to both Alois and Grell implying that he's in love with Ciel. Sebastian doesn't deny it, and, in fact, agrees while fighting Claude in episode... 10? That he's not fighting for Ciel's soul...
* Koushaku Chouno, better known as Papillon, from ''Manga/BusouRenkin''. He dresses in a flamboyant outfit including speedos and a distinctive butterfly mask, and he certainly has a lot of FoeYay with Kazuki.
* Desslok from ''Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato'' is ''supposed'' to be straight, and has slept with at least two women (Starsha and Mela). And yet he has male bath attendants who rub him down vigorously and then clothe him (no, really) and he hits on his generals. And he had an entire canon song written about how he and Wildstar are "bound together" and "unable to live with it anymore". And Zordar, who ignores his girlfriend who is ''right there and can see everything'' to hug Desslok. When she got revenge on Desslok and Zordar found out, he said he would have killed her if he wasn't so busy, and did kill her in the original as soon as he got an opportunity. Not to mention Talan, Desslok's ''faaavorite'' general, who begs to be sent to prison with Desslok and bursts into tears on the spot when he's told he can't. In ''Farewell'', Sergeant Knox shouts "I LOVE YOU!" to Wildstar (at least in Japanese). Wildstar and Venture do some bizarre wrestling when they're fighting over Nova. Wildstar and Ryusuke also have a fight while the narrator says how Ryusuke felt ''such'' new feelings within him. It's like the semi-canon Cast Full Of Gay.

to:

* Father Jelice Bryah ''Manga/InuYasha''
** Jakotsu, who hits on pretty much every male character he comes into contact with (except Bankotsu), and has an unwanted attraction to Inuyasha, to the point where, [[spoiler:in his sadistic version
of ''Manga/HatenkouYuugi''. {{Lampshaded}} by '''Rahzel''' "I don't recall coming out love, tries to torture him to death because of some queer's stomach." (She said it.]] After TheReveal that Jakotsu was the only completely loyal member of the Band of Seven, Bankostu shared a [[LoveBubbles bubbly]] HeadbuttOfLove with him.
** Jaken started following Sesshomaru
because he thought Sesshoumaru was trying to be her father, but given the idiot of a dad she has, he beautiful. This is definitely a huge improvement.)
* Kai (Kaisuke
anime filler only and never happened in the manga) manga.
* Izetta and Finé the leading ladies of ''Anime/IzettaTheLastWitch'' have shown no interest in men and share great affection towards each other due to their history as childhood friends. Izetta shows strong devotion to Finé and is willing to break her taboo openly using magic to protect her while Finé at one point called Izetta, 'My White Witch'. Notably, prior to their reunion in the first episode, Finé dreams of her first meeting with Izetta and thinks about her a few times before offering herself up for a political marriage she previously declined.
* Otohiko
from ''Manga/{{AKIRA}}'' is [[{{Bishonen}} short, slim, well-dressed, girlishly faced,]] ''Manga/KamisamaKiss.'' He's an all around pretty boy that flirts with both men and can knock women. He dresses in a guy through stereotypically gay fashion (he even has a window. Being relatively sensitive biohazard suit decked out in flowers) and implied his familiars are show-dogs with a heart shaped collars. Nanami even calls him a homosexual when they first meet but his actually sexual orientation has yet to have a crush on Kaneda been revealed.
* ''Manga/KamuiDen'': Nowhere more ambiguously that with Ryunoshin and his young charge Miyagi Onya. Initially, the latter approaches Ryunoshin requesting that he become his "nenja" (a kind of mentor figure, but like the erastes of ancient Greece, with strong gay overtones). Ryunoshin says he has no interest
in "shudo" (male pederasty), but recognizing the young man's purity of heart, accepts his request to form a special bond (chigiri) together. Of course, Shirato had to go and muddy the waters further by saying in a recap, that the two characters shared a bond of "shudo," which all but explictly labels them as gay lovers. Certain characters within the manga (he joyfully [[TheGlomp glomps]] him when he finds out he's alive) and Yamagata also seem to think their relationship swings this way. As they are never shown engaing in the anime, he's [[{{Fanon}} often percieved as anything beyond mildly affectionate behaviour, it would seem they are in a platonic gay relationship...maybe.
* Touko from ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' blatantly flirts with Shiki, calling her 'a cute
young homosexual.lady along ''her'' line of fancy' the first time they meet. And then we have WordOfGod stating that the first thing she does [[spoiler:upon activating her BodyBackupDrive]] is hunt for pretty girls.
* There's no doubt that Tomari from ''Manga/KashimashiGirlMeetsGirl'' likes girls considering she is a love interest in a YuriGenre manga. The question is "Did she like Hazumu when [[GenderBender she was a boy]]?" She didn't seem to however there isn't much shown of their relationship pre-genderbend.
* ''Anime/KillLaKill'':
** Ryuko shows no interest in boys throughout the series. She instead has a close bond with Mako [[spoiler:and the series ends with them going on a date, though whether it's romantic or platonic is left vague especially since they meet up with Ryuko's sister and hang out with her.
]]
* Kurotobi of ''Manga/{{Amatsuki}}''. He constantly hits on Toki, calls him cute ** As mentioned, Mako. She gets a nosebleed due to Ryuko and touches him a lot.
* ''Manga/PeacemakerKurogane'': Most of the characters are pretty strongly implied
is quite close to be gay or bisexual. Heisuke makes more than a few references to men and boys he finds attractive or may or may not have slept with. Saitou, while he may or may not actually be interested in men (who knows with him?), is willing her, [[spoiler:even kissing her]], however it's just ambiguous enough to pretend to be for information. And general dynamics of HoYay between various cast members aside, there are always Hijikata call it 'simply humor' or she is really in love with Ryuko. She has some ShipTease with Gamagoori and [[DudeLooksLikeALady Okita]], who always seem just one step shy of being an OfficialCouple (with Hijikata's voice actor her though, [[spoiler:and the above-mentioned date scene implies he is going so far as to respond confess to a remark about his character having given up romantic pursuits for his mission with, essentially, "Uh...no"). The shinobi Susumu often cross-dresses (quite convincingly) to gather information, blushes when Tetsunosuke mentions that he and Testsu are friends, and when Tetsunosuke offers him comfort by trying to touch his hand following [[spoiler: his sister's death]] Susumu tightly grabs Tetsunosuke's hand in his. Lastly her, but there's PrettyBoy Suzu, based no word on his fanboying of Yoshida's sex appeal and his relationship with Tetsu before becoming a DepravedHomosexual in her feelings for him.]]
* Escargon from
the {{sequel}}.
* ''Manga/BlackButler''
** [[CreepyChild Alois Trancy]] in the second season of the {{anime}}. He alternates between being AxCrazy and sweet and cheerful, basically flirts with Sebastian via leaning into him and pronouncing that he "smells good", is [[HoYay very attached]] to his butler Claude, treats his one female maidservant like absolute crap (he [[EyeScream stabs out her eye]] with his fingers just for looking at him and later mocks her for it), dresses and acts very effeminately and flamboyantly and has a girlish face. [[spoiler:Well, he was ambiguous until
''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'' [[Anime/KirbyOfTheStars anime]]. It's pretty clear by episode 5 where he outright flirted with Ciel, licked his ear, and stated that he "wants" him. And in episode 11 when he tells Claude "I wanted your love."]]
** Also, Finny of Ciel's household staff: [[DudeLooksLikeALady girly looks]], wears barrettes in his hair, {{Keet}}, a bit of a crybaby, and tends to go into fanboy mode over Sebastian.
** And Claude. It becomes painstakingly obvious after he brainwashes Ciel, though maybe he just really wanted Ciel's soul...
** Sebastian, believe it or not. Exhibit A. Stilettos. Exhibit B. The way he stands and walks, particularly prominent in the first couple of volumes. Exhibit C. Doesn't he say he finds Ash more attractive than Angela? Exhibit D. And, of course, fighting over Ciel with Claude, which leads to both Alois and Grell implying
55 that he's in love with Ciel. Sebastian Dedede; he even uses "aishiteru" in his song at the beginning of the episode, and it's known that "aishiteru" is a stronger way of telling someone you love them. He even gets all flustered when he finds out Dedede heard the entire song. In the English dub, he was voiced with an impression of famous TransparentCloset actor Paul Lynde.
* Miki from ''Manga/{{Life}}'', and by extent Ayumu too. Their bond can be described as being stronger than a normal friendship but it's not exactly romance either. Apparently Ayumu liked a boy in middle school but she's shown no interest in boys in high school (though she has good reason not to with all the trouble she's been having). [[spoiler:Ayumu falls for a boy by the end of the manga and Miki said she has a lover in her hometown though..]]
* Konata of ''Manga/LuckyStar''. Holy crap, you could write a book about this. Her room is covered in posters and figurines of moe girls, she talks about Miyuki's breasts (in a joking manner?), she is obsessed with adult dating games (but girls like those too... right?). She seems to have massive picture archives of moe girls classified into different fetishes on her computer, seeming to include pornographic images as is hinted at in one episode. She definitely admires the female form. She and Kagami seem entangled in some sort of [[BelligerentSexualTension love-hate]] [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship quasi-romantic relationship]]. Konata, after Kagami give up her seat to her at a concert, seemingly touched remarks, "What is this feeling?" Konata seems to have only ever had female friends despite having interests which should win her plenty of male attention. On the other hand, Konata enjoys working at a CosplayCafe where she claims to enjoy the attention of the male customers whom she says are "kind of like" her boyfriends. She also seems to mention wanting a boyfriend (maybe? hard to sort out the exact words she used. might've been "lover". It was more of a daydream thing anyway where she imagined herself as several ''VisualNovel/DaCapo'' characters before being swept off her feet by a bishounen [and therefore ambiguously male] version of herself). She also commented that she
doesn't deny it, and, in fact, agrees while fighting Claude in episode... 10? That he's really like giant robot shows for the action but just thinks the bishi characters are hot. Whether she's talking about the bishounen or bishoujo character is not fighting for Ciel's soul...
* Koushaku Chouno, better known
clear, though, as Papillon, from ''Manga/BusouRenkin''. He dresses in a flamboyant outfit including speedos and a distinctive butterfly mask, and he certainly has a lot of FoeYay with Kazuki.
* Desslok from ''Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato'' is ''supposed''
she seems to be straight, watching ''Anime/CodeGeass'' when she makes the comment.
* Speaking of "knife edge between subtext
and text", ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' has slept with at least two women (Starsha the ever-popular Nanoha and Mela). And yet he has male bath attendants Fate, who rub him down vigorously did all that Madoka and then clothe him (no, really) Homura did and he hits on his generals. And he had an entire canon song written about how he and Wildstar are "bound together" and "unable to live with it anymore". And Zordar, who ignores his girlfriend who is ''right there and can see everything'' to hug Desslok. When she got revenge on Desslok and Zordar found out, he said he would have killed her if he wasn't so busy, and did kill her in more, outright [[HasTwoMommies adopting a child together]]. Again the original as soon as he got an opportunity. Not to mention Talan, Desslok's ''faaavorite'' general, who begs to be sent to prison with Desslok and bursts into tears staff love heaping on the spot when he's told he can't. In ''Farewell'', Sergeant Knox shouts "I LOVE YOU!" to Wildstar (at least in Japanese). Wildstar ShipTease, and Venture do some bizarre wrestling when they're fighting over Nova. Wildstar and Ryusuke also have a fight while the narrator there's semi-official WordOfGay from their voice actors, but explicit confirmation seems forever out of reach.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'':
** In chapter 336 where Fate
says how Ryusuke felt ''such'' new "He (Negi) already belongs to me. Give up." and the end of the chapter reads "The strongest love (?) rival appears."
** While Setsuna's BodyguardCrush on Konoka [[EveryoneCanSeeIt can be seen from space]], Konoka herself is far less definite, and whether she just liked to tease Setsuna or genuinely returned her
feelings within him. It's like continued to be a mystery. At the semi-canon Cast Full Of Gay.very least they get '''a lot''' of romantic/sexual moments together, and [[spoiler:the epilogue heavily implies they married each other.]]
** Their pactio kiss lasted much longer than it needed to, and Konoka only broke it off because Setsuna needed to breathe. Some took that scene as confirmation.



* ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'': Essentially all of the girls. It's even more blatant with the original light novels as they go in-depth into the characters' thoughts. The characters have heavy levels of HomoeroticSubtext and it's the most famous YuriGenre series but there isn't actually any confirmed romance between the characters.
* Atsuko Jackson from ''Anime/MichikoToHatchin'', who [[FoeRomanceSubtext seems to have feelings for the woman she is tasked with bringing to justice]]. At one point, Michiko even states that [[TooKinkyToTorture Atsuko used to become aroused whenever Michiko beat her up when they were children]].



* On ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' Siesta remarks that some think Agnes is into girls. [[FakeOutMakeOut There was that one time with Louise]]...
* Several characters from ''Manga/HanaKimi''.
* Allaindelon in ''Manga/{{Beelzebub}}'' is Ambiguously ''MachoCamp''. On the one hand, he has a daughter. On the other hand... ''every other aspect of his character and line of his dialogue''.
* Sugata Shindo; from ''Anime/StarDriver''. He does love and care for Wako, but nowhere has it been shown that this is a romantic love. Also, his professed "curiosity" about Takuto as well as his [[HoYay gay subtext]]-dripping conversations with Head are signs that are too big to ignore...
** There's also Shingo [[spoiler:[[DepravedBisexual Head's]] currently comatose lover from fifteen years prior]], who with the way he looks and talks is only ambigous because the creators didn't directly say anything about his sexuality.
* Konata of ''Manga/LuckyStar''. Holy crap, you could write a book about this. Her room is covered in posters and figurines of moe girls, she talks about Miyuki's breasts (in a joking manner?), she is obsessed with adult dating games (but girls like those too... right?).

* Lucia from ''Manga/VenusVersusVirus''. Nothing is said about her bond with Sumire, and it doesn't go anywhere on-screen, but it's heavily implied she harbors feelings for her.
* ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'': Essentially all of the girls. It's even more blatant with the original light novels as they go in-depth into the characters' thoughts. The characters have heavy levels of HomoeroticSubtext and it's the most famous YuriGenre series but there isn't actually any confirmed romance between the characters.

* On ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' Siesta remarks that some think Agnes is into girls. [[FakeOutMakeOut There was that one time Zelik Lindemann and Silas Edwards in ''Manga/MotherKeeper'' come off as this way. Silas even seems to get slightly flirty with Louise]]...
* Several characters from ''Manga/HanaKimi''.
* Allaindelon in ''Manga/{{Beelzebub}}'' is Ambiguously ''MachoCamp''. On the
Zelik at one hand, he point.
* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia''
has a daughter. very subtle example, with Kirishima. It's stated that his favorite thing is "Manly Guys", which by itself is already pretty complicated. He shows no interest overall in any girl, but the amount of time he spends talking with or about Bakugou, besides his [[spoiler: fight to convince everybody to help rescue him]], even more than Midoriya, who is his childhood friend, make it sound like a crush. In recent Halloween art for "My Hero Academia Smash!!!", he is seen dressed as Little Red Riding Hood gleefully running from a half-naked Bakugou. At this point, if Kirishima ''isn't'' gay, it might just cause a bit of an uproar.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** Zabuza and Haku have ''something'' going on, and at the very least Haku is intensely devoted to Zabuza, but nothing is explicitly stated.
** Orochimaru, to compliment his MemeticMolester status. Granted, he pervs on girls too, but he seems to much prefer boys.
** Some of Suigetsu's mannerisms and body language could also be interpreted this way, such as the scene where he threatens Sasuke from behind while naked, though his TeethClenchedTeamwork with Karin [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation can be viewed as ]] BelligerentSexualTension.
** Madara Uchiha's obsession with Hashirama is well established, and that was before it was revealed that the Sharingan is activated by a loss of love, and Madara's was activated when he broke off his friendship with Hashirama...
** Gaara shows no interest in the fangirls he gains following the TimeSkip and has a HoYay filled relationship with Naruto. In particular in Chapter 678 when everyone is trapped inside Infinite Tsukuyomi, most of them dreamed about being with their LoveInterest. Gaara dreamed about his family and Naruto. Also, Gaara's [[http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Gaara#Personality page]] on the Naruto Wiki gives us this gem under his personality section:
--> Gaara eventually formed a close friendship with Naruto, viewing the Kohoha ninja as his first true friend, and became very loyal to his decisions, and protective over him as a companion. Gaara also came to view meeting Naruto as the greatest event of his life and believed any price, even the painful life of a jinchūriki was worth the experience. Gaara even forgave Shukaku for his miserable childhood, claiming that it was only because of such a life that he was able to meet Naruto.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'':
** Kaworu Nagisa's behavior towards Shinji (who is himself AmbiguouslyBi) and their interactions have been hotly debated since the show aired. A [[HoYay homosexual subtext]] clearly exists, and is carried through to both AlternateContinuity works and some official artwork, but it's never made clear whether this is all there is or if more layers exist. Shinji, being so starved for affection, might see Kaworu as a parental figure or some other source of familial intimacy.
On the other hand... ''every other aspect of side, there's the possibility that familial and sexual affection may not be mutually exclusive for Shinji due to his character desperation and line traumatic upbringing. There are also arguments that Kaworu is just a FishOutOfWater and does not realize that he's making suggestive comments, or that human sexuality is completely irrelevant to him [[spoiler:since he's an Angel]]. In ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion 1.0'', Kaworu awakens on the moon to promptly say "I'm looking forward to knowing you, Shinji Ikari." As {{lampshaded}} with many lulz by the fansubbing group, the Japanese word used can mean "to know in the biblical sense". And right after that he says he's gonna make Shinji "happy" this time... Approximately '''half''' of ''Rebuild 3.0'' is devoted to Kaworu and Shinji's budding relationship [[spoiler:before Kaworu is horribly killed]]. Kaworu describing them playing the piano together like they're having sex isn't even the gayest thing he does. It doesn't help that his dialogue''.
* Sugata Shindo;
original English voice actor had a slight lisp, an old stereotype of gay men. Whether this was done on purpose or not is unknown.
** The manga mostly averts this, however, at least
from ''Anime/StarDriver''. He does love Shinji's side; as he's creeped out by Kaworu's tendency to invade his personal space and care for Wako, but nowhere has it been shown tries to stay away from him as much as he can. In vol. 10, Kaworu uses a kiss to stop Shinji from hyperventilating during a nightmare, and makes advances toward Shinji which he flatly refuses. He later leaves Kaworu's apartment with very little in the way of a good-bye, which upsets Kaworu, although after Kaworu's death, he admits to himself that this is a romantic love. Also, his professed "curiosity" about Takuto as well as his [[HoYay gay subtext]]-dripping conversations with Head are signs that are too big to ignore...
** There's also Shingo [[spoiler:[[DepravedBisexual Head's]] currently comatose lover from fifteen years prior]], who with
despite the way he looks acted, he was attracted to Kaworu, even though he knew he shouldn't like a boy like that.
* ''Manga/NyanKoi'': Junpei's friend Haruhiko, at least in his mannerisms. He's been known to buy [[{{Hentai}} eroge manga]]
and talks is only ambigous because was the creators didn't directly say anything one to start peeping on the girls during a FuroScene. However, he was all-too-willing to wear the maid outfit during the school festival...
* ''Manga/OnePiece''
** Cross-dressing ballerina kick-ologist Mr. 2 Bon Clay is
about as ambiguous as they come. To the point where it's his sexuality.
* Konata of ''Manga/LuckyStar''. Holy crap, you could write a book about this. Her room is covered
catchphrase.
** Nami shows little to no interest
in posters men, and figurines comments on the sex appeal of moe girls, she talks about Miyuki's breasts (in Kalifa during their fight. She also has a joking manner?), she is obsessed RomanticTwoGirlFriendship with adult dating games (but girls like those too... right?). She seems to have massive picture archives of moe girls classified into different fetishes on her computer, seeming to include pornographic images as Vivi, and they're shown sleeping against each other's shoulders in an opening.
** Zoro
is hinted at in one episode. She definitely admires alone among the female form. She and Kagami seem entangled in some sort of [[BelligerentSexualTension love-hate]] [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship quasi-romantic relationship]]. Konata, after Kagami give up her seat to her at a concert, seemingly touched remarks, "What is this feeling?" Konata seems to have only ever had female friends despite having interests which should win her plenty of young male attention. characters (except for Luffy, who is himself [[WordOfGod aromantic and asexual, according to Oda]]) in not displaying obvious attraction to women. He's shown himself to be immune to women's attempts to use DistractedByTheSexy on him, and not in a HeroicWillpower way, either--he doesn't even ''notice.'' On the other hand, Konata enjoys working at he displays a CosplayCafe where she claims rather telling blush during his anime-only [[AccidentalKiss accidental]] [[AlmostKiss near-kisses]] with [[FoeYay Sanji]]...
* ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'':
** Kyoya, and Tamaki
to an extent. They give backrubs and call each other "mommy" and "daddy". Tamaki may be more along the lines of AmbiguouslyBi given how he seems to genuinely enjoy female company, but Kyoya never displays any genuine interest in the attention of the male club's customers whom she says are "kind of like" her boyfriends. She also seems beyond what he can get them to mention wanting a boyfriend (maybe? hard to sort out buy. When Tamaki calls the exact words she used. might've been "lover". It was more rest of a daydream thing anyway where she imagined herself as several ''VisualNovel/DaCapo'' characters before being swept off her feet the host club (other than Haruhi) the homosexual supporting cast, Kyoya is annoyed. However, he's only annoyed by a bishounen [and therefore ambiguously male] version of herself). She also commented that she the 'supporting' line, he doesn't really like giant robot shows for the action but just thinks the bishi characters are hot. Whether she's talking about the bishounen or bishoujo character is not clear, though, as she seem to care that he was called a homosexual.
** The relationship between Mori-senpai and Honey-senpai
seems to be watching ''Anime/CodeGeass'' when she makes the comment.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'':
rather suspicious.
** In chapter 336 where Fate says "He (Negi) already belongs to me. Give up." The twins Karou and the end of the chapter reads "The strongest love (?) rival appears."
** While Setsuna's BodyguardCrush on Konoka [[EveryoneCanSeeIt can be seen from space]], Konoka herself is far less definite, and whether she just liked to tease Setsuna or genuinely returned her feelings continued to be a mystery. At the very least
Hikaru are as ambiguous as they get '''a lot''' of romantic/sexual moments together, and [[spoiler:the epilogue heavily implies they married each other.]]
** Their pactio kiss lasted much longer than it needed to, and Konoka only broke it off because Setsuna needed to breathe. Some took that scene as confirmation.
* Miki from ''Manga/{{Life}}'', and by extent Ayumu too. Their bond can be described as being stronger than a normal friendship but
come. They play up the {{Twincest}} angle for all it's not exactly romance either. Apparently Ayumu liked a boy in middle school worth for the benefit of their fans and to draw customers, but she's shown no interest in boys in high school (though she has good reason not to with all they're often just as close even if they don't have an audience or are completely alone. There's also the trouble she's been having). [[spoiler:Ayumu falls for a boy by the end of the manga and Miki said she has a lover in her hometown though..]]
* Lucia from ''Manga/VenusVersusVirus''. Nothing is said about her bond with Sumire, and it
probable crush on [[{{Bifauxnen}} Haruhi]] to consider, but that doesn't go anywhere on-screen, but it's heavily implied she harbors feelings for her.
* ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'': Essentially all of the girls. It's even more blatant with the original light novels as they go in-depth into the characters' thoughts. The characters have heavy levels of HomoeroticSubtext and it's the most famous YuriGenre series but there isn't actually any confirmed romance between the characters.
* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'': Owen and Laban, who are both HeterosexualLifePartners, have a StupidSexyFlanders moment towards [[{{Bishonen}} Griffith]] and desperately look for each other after they're separated in war.
arise often.



* ''Manga/PeacemakerKurogane'': Most of the characters are pretty strongly implied to be gay or bisexual. Heisuke makes more than a few references to men and boys he finds attractive or may or may not have slept with. Saitou, while he may or may not actually be interested in men (who knows with him?), is willing enough to pretend to be for information. And general dynamics of HoYay between various cast members aside, there are always Hijikata and [[DudeLooksLikeALady Okita]], who always seem just one step shy of being an OfficialCouple (with Hijikata's voice actor going so far as to respond to a remark about his character having given up romantic pursuits for his mission with, essentially, "Uh...no"). The shinobi Susumu often cross-dresses (quite convincingly) to gather information, blushes when Tetsunosuke mentions that he and Testsu are friends, and when Tetsunosuke offers him comfort by trying to touch his hand following [[spoiler: his sister's death]] Susumu tightly grabs Tetsunosuke's hand in his. Lastly there's PrettyBoy Suzu, based on his fanboying of Yoshida's sex appeal and his relationship with Tetsu before becoming a DepravedHomosexual in the {{sequel}}.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Tucker, though despite the way he dresses, he has a ''very'' deep, masculine voice, but still manages to be flamboyant.
** Burgh, a fashion designer who wears tight pants and a scarf.
** Zoey is usually claimed to be this, for her short hair and habit of dressing almost exclusively in boyish pantsuits for contests, and being ''very'' touchy-feely with Dawn.
** James is often the subject of [[FlameWar discussion]] as to whether he's CampGay (often crossdresses, campy mannerisms and obsession with his looks) or CampStraight (crossdressers are usually hetero, straight {{Bishonen}} often have campy mannerisms, and he's had several crushes on girls including [''very'' briefly] the psychopathic Jessie-lookalike Jessebelle). The dub dialogue usually exaggerates the former while also adding a few confusing signposts in the other direction; given this is ''Pokémon'', it's unlikely the question will ever get an answer.
** Pokemon themselves are no exception to this. Meowth has a FoeYay driven relationship with Pikachu (it changed to straight HoYay at least once), has had homoerotic fantasy spots about Giovanni, and has fallen for James on one occasion (due to mood-altering Shuckle juice). Ash's Oshawott has the same sort of adoration towards Ash as Chikorita, Aipom, and Gliscor had; the former two of them are confirmed to be female and in love with Ash at one point.
* Bugsy in ''Manga/PokemonGoldenBoys''. He's a young {{bishonen}} boy, even more so than in the games. He's constantly blushing and acting sweet around Gold. You may think this is just his personality, but he acts differently around other people.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''
** Homura and Madoka are taken to the knife edge between subtext and text, including AlwaysSaveTheGirl, multiple [[DeclarationOfProtection Declarations of Protection]], and all the RedStringOfFate symbolism around Madoka's ribbons. However despite [[TeasingCreator constant teasing from the staff]] and [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/Animage_2011-03 incredibly]] [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/File:Front_cover_homumado_-_you_are_not_alone.jpg suggestive]] [[http://images.puella-magi.net/d/dc/MadoHomu_Lily_megami_improved_scan.jpg official art]], nothing explicit has ever been stated one way or the other.
-->'''Homura:''' ''([[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion explaining her motivations]])'' It's only natural that you don't understand. Yes...No one in the world could possibly understand. This emotion is mine alone. It is for Madoka alone. (...) It is the pinnacle of all human emotion. More passionate than hope, far deeper than despair. Love.
** Kyouko has a lot of signs of having a crush on Sayaka, and her and Mami are shown to have been very close in ''Farewell Story'' and ''Different Story'', but again there's nothing official.
* ''Manga/SailorMoon'' Movie R presents Fiore whose (supposedly) only friend on Earth was Mamoru/Darien a.k.a. Tuxedo Mask. When he returns, he's possessed by the Xenian Flower and becomes a {{Yandere}} for Mamoru, wanting to be his OnlyFriend and [[MurderTheHypotenuse kill]] off Sailor Moon.



* Manga/KamuiDen: Nowhere more ambiguously that with Ryunoshin and his young charge Miyagi Onya. Initially, the latter approaches Ryunoshin requesting that he become his "nenja" (a kind of mentor figure, but like the erastes of ancient Greece, with strong gay overtones). Ryunoshin says he has no interest in "shudo" (male pederasty), but recognizing the young man's purity of heart, accepts his request to form a special bond (chigiri) together. Of course, Shirato had to go and muddy the waters further by saying in a recap, that the two characters shared a bond of "shudo," which all but explictly labels them as gay lovers. Certain characters within the manga also seem to think their relationship swings this way. As they are never shown engaing in anything beyond mildly affectionate behaviour, it would seem they are in a platonic gay relationship...maybe.
* Every single major male lead in ''Manga/DeathNote'' is either this or ambiguously {{Asexual|ity}}.
** [[VillainProtagonist Light Yagami]] makes it very clear that he is not attracted to women, as well as [[EffeminateMisogynisticGuy thinking them useless and annoying.]] A very blatant example of this is ignoring the sexy girl in lingerie to use the computer behind her. He has massive amounts of FoeYay with L, such as being chained to him for 50 days and the infamous foot massage scene in the anime. He's often very well-dressed and at one point [[RealMenWearPink he wears a pink shirt]] when hanging with Matsuda in Aoyama when [[NotADate he's trying to meet the second Kira]] ([[SamusIsAGirl who he and the investigators assumed was male]]). When hiding pieces of the notebook Ryuk remarks on Light's [[TextileWorkIsFeminine sewing skills.]] He wears a pink butterfly belt-buckle in the anime opening, and in the manga at one point he wears a corset in order to hide the Death Note (while in the anime [[TrouserSpace he just shoves it down his pants)]]. WordOfGod also says that Light is "probably not capable of loving a woman," and also that [[AllGaysLoveTheatre his acting skills are 10/10.]]
** [[HeroAntagonist L]]. OK, so he does watch footage of Misa Amane strapped up against a board for a long time and does confess "I could actually fall for you" to her, but that doesn't stop him handcuffing himself to Light, as said before, and Light is the only character aside from Watari to whom he gives his 'phone number.
** Near takes all the FoeYay Light had with L to [[StalkerWithACrush a creepy, rape-y, one sided extreme.]] He calls Light a lot and then hangs up without talking, pulls... odd faces when thinking of Light and in the manga it's revealed that Near [[spoiler:didn't entirely want to kill Light,]] he wanted to keep him. And that's before we even get onto the FoeYay chemistry that is more commonly interpreted between him and Mello.
** Mello takes this trope so far as to be mistaken for a girl by a lot of readers/viewers until he is referred to as a "he" by other characters. He does not, like the other senior Mafia men, cuddle up with girls, dresses in tight leather long before he rides a motorbike for the first time in the series, has a VERY girly fur-lined coat, dons black lipstick and nail polish, ignores Hal Lidner's coquetry when she talks to him from her shower, licks chocolate bars suggestively in the company of other men, and lives with AmbiguouslyBi [[BadassBookworm loose-cannon geek]] Matt in a house full of mannequins. He also seems unenthused when Matt points out that switching jobs would mean getting to spy on a cute girl (Misa.) Did we miss anything?
** Ryuk, who wears tight leather, rings, makeup, and a heart-shaped earring [[NoYay and spends almost all his screentime and shares a bed with]] a {{Bishonen}} teenager.
** The elegant, well-manicured, immaculately-dressed and long-haired Yotsuba employee Reiji Namikawa. While almost all the other businessmen are either cuddling up with Misa's modelling friends or having a drink in her flat, he's busy looking at the artwork. Oh, and he wears a silver heart-shaped ring.
** Rem's strange (and for a Shinigami, highly unusual and controversial) relationship with Misa Amane. (She says it's platonic, but who knows?) She also [[spoiler:dies for her to rescue her and keeps Light alive just to keep her happy.]] That's some serious platonism!
** Teru Mikami, who surpasses both L and Near in his fixation for Light (although for markedly different reasons). [[GymBunny He also spends a lot of time working out at the gym]].
** Beyond Birthday, of the spin-off novel ''LightNovel/AnotherNote'', is completely obsessed with another man [[spoiler:[[IJustWantToBeYou to the point that he copies his appearance and mannerisms]]]] and is a self-described as "[[{{Seme}} an aggressive top]]."
** Sayu, Light's little sister, is Ambiguously Lesbian- she first says that she "doesn't want a boyfriend." Then she exclaims that Misa is "my type!" And she smiles when leafing through one of Light's [[PornStash magazines]]. The ambiguity here is that she does fangirl over Hideki Ryuga (the pop star), so she might be BiTheWay if the fangirling is sexual in nature.
* Otohiko from ''Manga/KamisamaKiss.'' He's an all around pretty boy that flirts with both men and women. He dresses in a stereotypically gay fashion (he even has a biohazard suit decked out in flowers) and his familiars are show-dogs with a heart shaped collars. Nanami even calls him a homosexual when they first meet but his actually sexual orientation has yet to have been revealed.

''Anime/SamuraiFlamenco'':
** [[VillainProtagonist Light Yagami]] makes it very clear that he is not attracted to women, as well as [[EffeminateMisogynisticGuy thinking them useless and annoying.]] A very blatant example of this is ignoring the sexy [[AlliterativeName Moe Morita]] / [[CodeName Flamenco Sapphire]] from ''Anime/SamuraiFlamenco''. She frequently blushes around Mari, an older girl in lingerie to use the computer behind her [[IdolSinger idol group]], and reacts dreamily whenever Mari playfully kisses her. He has massive amounts of FoeYay with L, such as being chained to him for 50 days and the infamous foot massage scene in the anime. He's often very well-dressed and at At one point [[RealMenWearPink he wears she's shown expecting a pink shirt]] kiss from Mari, and not only becomes visibly disappointed when hanging with Matsuda in Aoyama when [[NotADate he's trying to meet the second Kira]] ([[SamusIsAGirl who he and the investigators assumed was male]]).

she doesn't mind being manipulated by her.
** Mello takes this trope so far as to be mistaken As for a girl by a lot of readers/viewers until he Mari herself, it is referred to as a "he" by other characters. He does not, like the other senior Mafia men, cuddle up with girls, dresses in tight leather long before he rides a motorbike for the first time in the series, has a VERY girly fur-lined coat, dons black lipstick and nail polish, ignores Hal Lidner's coquetry when unclear whether she talks to him from her shower, licks chocolate bars suggestively in the company of other men, and lives with is AmbiguouslyBi [[BadassBookworm loose-cannon geek]] Matt (she has an [[AllLoveIsUnrequited unrequited crush]] on Goto, one of the show's male leads), or if her flirtations with Moe are just [[GirlOnGirlIsHot for the sake of titillation]].
* Mokuzu from ''Manga/SatouKashiNoDanganWaUchinukenai''. She says she is a mermaid who needs to find a friend within a certain timespan or she will die, directly paralleling ''Literature/TheLittleMermaid'' except for the romantic part. She is drawn to the protagonist, Nagisa, and attempts to be her friend. Mokuzu attracts the attention of a boy
in a house full her school but doesn't give him the time of mannequins. He also seems unenthused when Matt points out day and is utterly uninterested in him. She only went on [[NotADate a not-date]] with him because she wanted to spend time with Nagisa. She even ignored him [[spoiler:though that switching jobs would mean getting to spy on a cute girl (Misa.) Did we miss anything?
** Ryuk, who wears tight leather, rings, makeup,
was because he was speaking into her deaf ear and a heart-shaped earring [[NoYay she couldn't hear him]]. Nagisa and spends almost Mokuzu end up trying to [[TheRunaway runaway]] with each other but... It ends [[spoiler:[[KillTheCutie very poorly]].]]
* Miki from ''Manga/SchoolLive'' had a very strong friendship with her best friend Kei that is
all his screentime and shares but romantic. She tends to have a bed with]] a {{Bishonen}} teenager.
** The elegant, well-manicured, immaculately-dressed and long-haired Yotsuba employee Reiji Namikawa. While almost all
large amount of blushing moments around the other businessmen are either cuddling up with Misa's modelling friends or having a drink girls as well. This is more obvious in her flat, he's busy looking at the artwork. Oh, and he wears a silver heart-shaped ring.
** Rem's strange
anime, as it removed the other survivors (and for a Shinigami, highly unusual thus Kei's brief male crush) and controversial) relationship with Misa Amane. (She says it's platonic, but who knows?) She also [[spoiler:dies for her to rescue her put emphasis on Kei's and keeps Light alive just to keep her happy.]] That's some serious platonism!
** Teru Mikami, who surpasses both L and Near in his fixation for Light (although for markedly different reasons). [[GymBunny He also spends a lot of time working out at the gym]].
** Beyond Birthday, of the spin-off novel ''LightNovel/AnotherNote'', is completely obsessed with another man [[spoiler:[[IJustWantToBeYou to the point that he copies his appearance and mannerisms]]]] and is a self-described as "[[{{Seme}} an aggressive top]]."

Nanami even calls him a homosexual when they first meet but his actually sexual orientation has yet to have been revealed.
Miki's relationship.



* Miku Kohinata from ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'' is this. [[spoiler: At first, anyway. Any ambiguity disappeared in G when episode 10 revealed that the reason she could link up with Shenshou Jing is because of her love for Hibiki.]]
* ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd''
** Yuu falls between this and AmbiguouslyBi in that while he blushes around girls and acts appreciative of their feelings for him he acts much more interested in Mika. He also shows no reaction when seeing Shinoa and Mitsuba in the shower and in the fanbook Yuu acts disinterested in Mitsuba wearing civilian clothes but when he sees Yoichi wearing them he exclaims "Oh! Those civilian clothes look seriously good on you, Yoichi!" He also responds "shut up" when asked what he likes in the opposite sex.
** Mika shows no interest in females and acts [[{{Yandere}} incredibly possessive]] around Yuu.
** At one point in the manga, Shinoa jokes that Kimizuki "swings that way" to the rest of the squad who all look visibly shocked. Yoichi reacts with, "He does?!" while blushing.
** Shinya shows little interest in women (including his former fiance) and flirts with Guren constantly. His answer to "what he looks for in the opposite sex" in the official fanbook almost seems to imply he's "tired" of trying to be with women. Also, in the drama cd translation the girl crazy Goshi says they need to spend a Christmas with girls before they go to war to which Shinya responds "I'm not sure about the part with girls but I support having a Christmas party."
* Kumiko from ''Literature/SoundEuphonium'' comes off as this in the anime adaptation. In the books she's at most AmbiguouslyBi. The anime removed or toned down almost all of her scenes with her male love interest, Shuichi, while in return it amped up the HomoeroticSubtext between her and Reina to excruciating levels. The DuetBonding scene between the two, with all its romantic overtones and Reina grazing her finger on Kumiko's face to her lips, is only the tip of the iceberg. Kumiko seems utterly uninterested in Shuichi (and in fact in the books, [[spoiler:others had to tell her that she liked him in order for her to notice her own feelings for him]]) [[ObliviousToLove despite]] his obvious crush on her. The anime ultimately ends on [[spoiler:NoRomanticResolution with either Shuichi or Reina]] however she does give a very heartfelt love confession to [[spoiler:''Asuka'']]. Whether Kumiko's confession was in a sisterly or romantic context is left vague.
* Desslok from ''Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato'' is ''supposed'' to be straight, and has slept with at least two women (Starsha and Mela). And yet he has male bath attendants who rub him down vigorously and then clothe him (no, really) and he hits on his generals. And he had an entire canon song written about how he and Wildstar are "bound together" and "unable to live with it anymore". And Zordar, who ignores his girlfriend who is ''right there and can see everything'' to hug Desslok. When she got revenge on Desslok and Zordar found out, he said he would have killed her if he wasn't so busy, and did kill her in the original as soon as he got an opportunity. Not to mention Talan, Desslok's ''faaavorite'' general, who begs to be sent to prison with Desslok and bursts into tears on the spot when he's told he can't. In ''Farewell'', Sergeant Knox shouts "I LOVE YOU!" to Wildstar (at least in Japanese). Wildstar and Venture do some bizarre wrestling when they're fighting over Nova. Wildstar and Ryusuke also have a fight while the narrator says how Ryusuke felt ''such'' new feelings within him. It's like the semi-canon Cast Full Of Gay.
* Sugata Shindo; from ''Anime/StarDriver''. He does love and care for Wako, but nowhere has it been shown that this is a romantic love. Also, his professed "curiosity" about Takuto as well as his [[HoYay gay subtext]]-dripping conversations with Head are signs that are too big to ignore...
** There's also Shingo [[spoiler:[[DepravedBisexual Head's]] currently comatose lover from fifteen years prior]], who with the way he looks and talks is only ambigous because the creators didn't directly say anything about his sexuality.
* Riho and Chimo of ''Anime/{{Tamayura}}'' start living together quickly after they meet, and they never seem to show any interest in guys (despite both of them being rather attractive, and Chimo even having a persistent male suitor). The series contains some hints about their relationship status, such as their subtle display of intimacy as they watch the New Year's sunrise together.
* [[LoveToHate Tsukiyama]] of ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' is a mildly effeminate WickedCultured FashionVictimVillain obsessed with [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything "eating"]] [[ImAHumanitarian the protagonist]], who spends much of the manga's second half constantly placing himself at Kaneki's side (and occasionally [[{{Squick}} huffing his blood off of a handkerchief in the bathroom]]). Being that Tsukiyama particularly targets people he finds attractive, his fanatical stalking of Kaneki leaves the "ambiguous" part of this trope the only questionable one.



* ''Bio Booster Armor Manga/{{Guyver}}'' has it's fair share of moments.
** Tetsurō Segawa has subtle hints of being possibly gay towards his {{Bromance}}, Sho Fukamachi. His sister Mitzuki has taken various opportunities to paint them in such light when catching them in moments odd moments such as holding hands with Sho when the two were reaffirming their resolve and friendship. To top it off, he is never seen hitting on women, never flinching or startled when a naked Sho pops up unexpected. Such as when in the manga a Sho clone pops up and he comments on why he's naked due to the heat, and later when being busted out of a prison cell in the anime. During the final episode of anime, he encourages and pushes his sister to greet a long thought dead Sho, only for Natski to ask her why he wont himself, which causes him to blush in embarrassment.
** The evil Chronos organization is nearly an exclusively male operated with male exclusive male membership in high ranks and troops. This has led to some ambiguity amongst their leaders and ranks. Supreme leader Archanfel has a girly elfish appearance, and later ends up having a shared mind with and mutual loyalty to fellow Zoalord Imurikum. Imurikum in turn is often shown carrying a Archanfel in his arms. The "Hyper Zoanoid Team Five" members have a big deal of loyalty to one another, but Elagen and Zx-Tole are portrayed in the OVA to a high degree of this trope with lines such as "You have to hold on, I need your strength, I need you!" and "Oh, I'll do anything for you Elegan!".
* Later volumes of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' have Carla Alvarez Santonia, unconditionally loyal {{Bifauxnen}} bodyguard of Lucrezia de Dormentaire. It's not the crossdressing that makes her suspect, but the fact that her charge is a ''[[ReallyGetsAround very]]'' [[AnythingThatMoves openly bisexual hedonist]] who sleeps with most of her servants, male or female - [[SubordinateExcuse all of which are quite happy with the arrangement.]]
* ''Manga/HereIsGreenwood'': Kazuhiro Hasukawa, the older brother of main character Kazuya. Has a rather {{bishounen}} look to him and the rumors fly about his sexual orientation (he's the nurse in an all-male school). But then again, he's also HappilyMarried (and the ''wife'' is just another of the points of contention the brothers).
* Atsuko Jackson from ''Anime/MichikoToHatchin'', who [[FoeRomanceSubtext seems to have feelings for the woman she is tasked with bringing to justice]]. At one point, Michiko even states that [[TooKinkyToTorture Atsuko used to become aroused whenever Michiko beat her up when they were children]].
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''
** Homura and Madoka are taken to the knife edge between subtext and text, including AlwaysSaveTheGirl, multiple [[DeclarationOfProtection Declarations of Protection]], and all the RedStringOfFate symbolism around Madoka's ribbons. However despite [[TeasingCreator constant teasing from the staff]] and [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/Animage_2011-03 incredibly]] [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/File:Front_cover_homumado_-_you_are_not_alone.jpg suggestive]] [[http://images.puella-magi.net/d/dc/MadoHomu_Lily_megami_improved_scan.jpg official art]], nothing explicit has ever been stated one way or the other.
-->'''Homura:''' ''([[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion explaining her motivations]])'' It's only natural that you don't understand. Yes...No one in the world could possibly understand. This emotion is mine alone. It is for Madoka alone. (...) It is the pinnacle of all human emotion. More passionate than hope, far deeper than despair. Love.
** Kyouko has a lot of signs of having a crush on Sayaka, and her and Mami are shown to have been very close in ''Farewell Story'' and ''Different Story'', but again there's nothing official.
* Speaking of "knife edge between subtext and text", ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' has the ever-popular Nanoha and Fate, who did all that Madoka and Homura did and more, outright [[HasTwoMommies adopting a child together]]. Again the staff love heaping on the ShipTease, and there's semi-official WordOfGay from their voice actors, but explicit confirmation seems forever out of reach.
* ''Anime/SamuraiFlamenco'':
** [[AlliterativeName Moe Morita]] / [[CodeName Flamenco Sapphire]] from ''Anime/SamuraiFlamenco''. She frequently blushes around Mari, an older girl in her [[IdolSinger idol group]], and reacts dreamily whenever Mari playfully kisses her. At one point she's shown expecting a kiss from Mari, and not only becomes visibly disappointed when it doesn't happen, but later states that she doesn't mind being manipulated by her.
** As for Mari herself, it is unclear whether she is AmbiguouslyBi (she has an [[AllLoveIsUnrequited unrequited crush]] on Goto, one of the show's male leads), or if her flirtations with Moe are just [[GirlOnGirlIsHot for the sake of titillation]].
* Miku Kohinata from ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'' is this. [[spoiler: At first, anyway. Any ambiguity disappeared in G when episode 10 revealed that the reason she could link up with Shenshou Jing is because of her love for Hibiki.]]
* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'':
** Kaorin though the "Ambiguously" steadily breaks down over the course of the series and becomes TransparentCloset (though she claims it's a case of SingleTargetSexuality). It starts getting lampshaded by the other characters including one point where Osaka just flat out asks her if she's gay or not. It's obvious she likes Sakaki though there is vagueness if she's bi or gay. She could be a heavily closeted lesbian, Sakaki could be her one exception, or she could be bisexual.
** Nyamo fits the LesbianJock trope and many fans have guessed that the only reason she stays close to [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Yukari]] is because of romantic feelings. According to the manga, she was in an all-girls high school however Yukari blackmails her with a NoodleIncident involving a love letter. From her reaction, it's likely Nyamo was the one who gave the letter rather than received it. It's never mentioned who she gave the letter to, however the all-girl setting implies it was to a girl. Still, Nyamo seems interested in men and getting married to one some day.
* Riho and Chimo of ''Anime/{{Tamayura}}'' start living together quickly after they meet, and they never seem to show any interest in guys (despite both of them being rather attractive, and Chimo even having a persistent male suitor). The series contains some hints about their relationship status, such as their subtle display of intimacy as they watch the New Year's sunrise together.
* Zelik Lindemann and Silas Edwards in ''Manga/MotherKeeper'' come off as this way. Silas even seems to get slightly flirty with Zelik at one point.
* [[LoveToHate Tsukiyama]] of ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' is a mildly effeminate WickedCultured FashionVictimVillain obsessed with [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything "eating"]] [[ImAHumanitarian the protagonist]], who spends much of the manga's second half constantly placing himself at Kaneki's side (and occasionally [[{{Squick}} huffing his blood off of a handkerchief in the bathroom]]). Being that Tsukiyama particularly targets people he finds attractive, his fanatical stalking of Kaneki leaves the "ambiguous" part of this trope the only questionable one.
* Kazuki of ''Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor'' certainly qualifies. At least three girls have fallen in love with him, and he's either [[CluelessChickMagnet oblivious to their feelings]] or he knows and is completely uninterested. Then there's his utter devotion to [[ChildhoodFriend Soushi]], and the show makes sure to let the viewers know that they are the most important person to each other. He even [[spoiler: vows to wait ''forever'' for Soushi to return at the end of the first season, and flies into a rage during the movie when Festum show up instead]].
* ''Anime/{{Free}}'': Almost all the major characters are males show show zero interest in girls romantically and have very VERY intense friendships with at least one other male character.
* Miki from ''Manga/SchoolLive'' had a very strong friendship with her best friend Kei that is all but romantic. She tends to have a large amount of blushing moments around the other girls as well. This is more obvious in the anime, as it removed the other survivors (and thus Kei's brief male crush) and put emphasis on Kei's and Miki's relationship.
* Mokuzu from ''Manga/SatouKashiNoDanganWaUchinukenai''. She says she is a mermaid who needs to find a friend within a certain timespan or she will die, directly paralleling ''Literature/TheLittleMermaid'' except for the romantic part. She is drawn to the protagonist, Nagisa, and attempts to be her friend. Mokuzu attracts the attention of a boy in her school but doesn't give him the time of day and is utterly uninterested in him. She only went on [[NotADate a not-date]] with him because she wanted to spend time with Nagisa. She even ignored him [[spoiler:though that was because he was speaking into her deaf ear and she couldn't hear him]]. Nagisa and Mokuzu end up trying to [[TheRunaway runaway]] with each other but... It ends [[spoiler:[[KillTheCutie very poorly]].]]
* Kumiko from ''Literature/SoundEuphonium'' comes off as this in the anime adaptation. In the books she's at most AmbiguouslyBi. The anime removed or toned down almost all of her scenes with her male love interest, Shuichi, while in return it amped up the HomoeroticSubtext between her and Reina to excruciating levels. The DuetBonding scene between the two, with all its romantic overtones and Reina grazing her finger on Kumiko's face to her lips, is only the tip of the iceberg. Kumiko seems utterly uninterested in Shuichi (and in fact in the books, [[spoiler:others had to tell her that she liked him in order for her to notice her own feelings for him]]) [[ObliviousToLove despite]] his obvious crush on her. The anime ultimately ends on [[spoiler:NoRomanticResolution with either Shuichi or Reina]] however she does give a very heartfelt love confession to [[spoiler:''Asuka'']]. Whether Kumiko's confession was in a sisterly or romantic context is left vague.
* There's no doubt that Tomari from ''Manga/KashimashiGirlMeetsGirl'' likes girls considering she is a love interest in a YuriGenre manga. The question is "Did she like Hazumu when [[GenderBender she was a boy]]?" She didn't seem to however there isn't much shown of their relationship pre-genderbend.
* ''Anime/KillLaKill'':
** Ryuko shows no interest in boys throughout the series. She instead has a close bond with Mako [[spoiler:and the series ends with them going on a date, though whether it's romantic or platonic is left vague especially since they meet up with Ryuko's sister and hang out with her.]]
** As mentioned, Mako. She gets a nosebleed due to Ryuko and is quite close to her, [[spoiler:even kissing her]], however it's just ambiguous enough to call it 'simply humor' or she is really in love with Ryuko. She has some ShipTease with Gamagoori and her though, [[spoiler:and the above-mentioned date scene implies he is going to confess to her.]]

to:

* ''Bio Booster Armor Manga/{{Guyver}}'' has Even when CLAMP's EveryoneIsBi policy is taken into account, Fai from ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' still deserves an honorable mention.
* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'':
** There is an example in Ronove, a BattleButler with NoSenseOfPersonalSpace (especially around Battler, who is his main HoYay target) who get some spends a lot of his free time [[RealMenWearPink baking cookies]]. In the fourth arc, he gets punched in the face, and his nosebleed turns into [[SuckMyRose rose petals]], of all things.
** Going into huge (Visual Novel only) spoiler territory with Umineko, but [[spoiler:what's up with Jessica and Kanon? Did she seriously not notice she was in love with her best friend, who is usually female?]] For that matter, since [[spoiler:Yasu's gender is so ambiguous]],
it's fair share of moments.
** Tetsurō Segawa has subtle hints of being possibly gay towards his {{Bromance}}, Sho Fukamachi. His sister Mitzuki has taken various opportunities
hard to paint them in such light when catching them in moments odd moments such as holding hands with Sho when the two were reaffirming their resolve and friendship. To top it off, he is never seen hitting on women, never flinching or startled when a naked Sho pops up unexpected. Such as when tell which relationships in the manga a Sho clone pops up series are straight and he comments on why he's naked due to the heat, and later when being busted out of a prison cell in the anime. During the final episode of anime, he encourages and pushes his sister to greet a long thought dead Sho, only for Natski to ask her why he wont himself, which causes him to blush in embarrassment.
** The evil Chronos organization is nearly an exclusively male operated with male exclusive male membership in high ranks and troops. This has led to some ambiguity amongst their leaders and ranks. Supreme leader Archanfel has a girly elfish appearance, and later ends up having a shared mind with and mutual loyalty to fellow Zoalord Imurikum. Imurikum in turn is often shown carrying a Archanfel in his arms. The "Hyper Zoanoid Team Five" members have a big deal of loyalty to one another, but Elagen and Zx-Tole are portrayed in the OVA to a high degree of this trope with lines such as "You have to hold on, I need your strength, I need you!" and "Oh, I'll do anything for you Elegan!".
* Later volumes of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' have Carla Alvarez Santonia, unconditionally loyal {{Bifauxnen}} bodyguard of Lucrezia de Dormentaire. It's not the crossdressing that makes her suspect, but the fact that her charge is a ''[[ReallyGetsAround very]]'' [[AnythingThatMoves openly bisexual hedonist]] who sleeps with most of her servants, male or female - [[SubordinateExcuse all of
which are quite happy with the arrangement.]]
gay.
* ''Manga/HereIsGreenwood'': Kazuhiro Hasukawa, the older brother of main character Kazuya. Has a rather {{bishounen}} look to him and the rumors fly Lucia from ''Manga/VenusVersusVirus''. Nothing is said about his sexual orientation (he's the nurse in an all-male school). But then again, he's also HappilyMarried (and the ''wife'' is just another of the points of contention the brothers).
* Atsuko Jackson from ''Anime/MichikoToHatchin'', who [[FoeRomanceSubtext seems to have feelings for the woman she is tasked
her bond with bringing to justice]]. At one point, Michiko even states that [[TooKinkyToTorture Atsuko used to become aroused whenever Michiko beat her up when they were children]].
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''
** Homura
Sumire, and Madoka are taken to the knife edge between subtext and text, including AlwaysSaveTheGirl, multiple [[DeclarationOfProtection Declarations of Protection]], and all the RedStringOfFate symbolism around Madoka's ribbons. However despite [[TeasingCreator constant teasing from the staff]] and [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/Animage_2011-03 incredibly]] [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/File:Front_cover_homumado_-_you_are_not_alone.jpg suggestive]] [[http://images.puella-magi.net/d/dc/MadoHomu_Lily_megami_improved_scan.jpg official art]], nothing explicit has ever been stated one way or the other.
-->'''Homura:''' ''([[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion explaining her motivations]])'' It's only natural that you don't understand. Yes...No one in the world could possibly understand. This emotion is mine alone. It is for Madoka alone. (...) It is the pinnacle of all human emotion. More passionate than hope, far deeper than despair. Love.
** Kyouko has a lot of signs of having a crush on Sayaka, and her and Mami are shown to have been very close in ''Farewell Story'' and ''Different Story'', but again there's nothing official.
* Speaking of "knife edge between subtext and text", ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' has the ever-popular Nanoha and Fate, who did all that Madoka and Homura did and more, outright [[HasTwoMommies adopting a child together]]. Again the staff love heaping on the ShipTease, and there's semi-official WordOfGay from their voice actors, but explicit confirmation seems forever out of reach.
* ''Anime/SamuraiFlamenco'':
** [[AlliterativeName Moe Morita]] / [[CodeName Flamenco Sapphire]] from ''Anime/SamuraiFlamenco''. She frequently blushes around Mari, an older girl in her [[IdolSinger idol group]], and reacts dreamily whenever Mari playfully kisses her. At one point she's shown expecting a kiss from Mari, and not only becomes visibly disappointed when
it doesn't happen, go anywhere on-screen, but later states that she doesn't mind being manipulated by her.
** As for Mari herself, it is unclear whether she is AmbiguouslyBi (she has an [[AllLoveIsUnrequited unrequited crush]] on Goto, one of the show's male leads), or if her flirtations with Moe are just [[GirlOnGirlIsHot for the sake of titillation]].
* Miku Kohinata from ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'' is this. [[spoiler: At first, anyway. Any ambiguity disappeared in G when episode 10 revealed that the reason she could link up with Shenshou Jing is because of her love for Hibiki.]]
* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'':
** Kaorin though the "Ambiguously" steadily breaks down over the course of the series and becomes TransparentCloset (though she claims
it's a case of SingleTargetSexuality). It starts getting lampshaded by the other characters including one point where Osaka just flat out asks her if she's gay or not. It's obvious she likes Sakaki though there is vagueness if she's bi or gay. She could be a heavily closeted lesbian, Sakaki could be her one exception, or implied she could be bisexual.
** Nyamo fits the LesbianJock trope and many fans have guessed that the only reason she stays close to [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Yukari]] is because of romantic feelings. According to the manga, she was in an all-girls high school however Yukari blackmails her with a NoodleIncident involving a love letter. From her reaction, it's likely Nyamo was the one who gave the letter rather than received it. It's never mentioned who she gave the letter to, however the all-girl setting implies it was to a girl. Still, Nyamo seems interested in men and getting married to one some day.
* Riho and Chimo of ''Anime/{{Tamayura}}'' start living together quickly after they meet, and they never seem to show any interest in guys (despite both of them being rather attractive, and Chimo even having a persistent male suitor). The series contains some hints about their relationship status, such as their subtle display of intimacy as they watch the New Year's sunrise together.
* Zelik Lindemann and Silas Edwards in ''Manga/MotherKeeper'' come off as this way. Silas even seems to get slightly flirty with Zelik at one point.
* [[LoveToHate Tsukiyama]] of ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' is a mildly effeminate WickedCultured FashionVictimVillain obsessed with [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything "eating"]] [[ImAHumanitarian the protagonist]], who spends much of the manga's second half constantly placing himself at Kaneki's side (and occasionally [[{{Squick}} huffing his blood off of a handkerchief in the bathroom]]). Being that Tsukiyama particularly targets people he finds attractive, his fanatical stalking of Kaneki leaves the "ambiguous" part of this trope the only questionable one.
* Kazuki of ''Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor'' certainly qualifies. At least three girls have fallen in love with him, and he's either [[CluelessChickMagnet oblivious to their feelings]] or he knows and is completely uninterested. Then there's his utter devotion to [[ChildhoodFriend Soushi]], and the show makes sure to let the viewers know that they are the most important person to each other. He even [[spoiler: vows to wait ''forever''
harbors feelings for Soushi to return at the end of the first season, and flies into a rage during the movie when Festum show up instead]].
her.
* ''Anime/{{Free}}'': Almost all the major characters are males show show zero interest in girls romantically and have very VERY intense friendships with at least one other male character.
* Miki
Anna from ''Manga/SchoolLive'' had ''Anime/WhenMarnieWasThere'' develops a very strong close and intimate friendship with her best friend Kei the titular Marnie that is all but romantic. She tends to have a large amount consists of blushing moments around the other girls as well. This is more obvious in the anime, as it removed the other survivors (and thus Kei's brief male crush) having a OldFashionedRowboatDate, cute dancing together, and put emphasis on Kei's and Miki's relationship.
* Mokuzu from ''Manga/SatouKashiNoDanganWaUchinukenai''. She says she is a mermaid who needs to find a friend within a certain timespan or she will die, directly paralleling ''Literature/TheLittleMermaid'' except
declaring their love for the romantic part. She is drawn to the protagonist, Nagisa, and attempts to be her friend. Mokuzu attracts the attention of a boy in her school but doesn't give him the time of day and is utterly uninterested in him. She only went on [[NotADate a not-date]] with him because she wanted to spend time with Nagisa. She even ignored him [[spoiler:though that was because he was speaking into her deaf ear and she couldn't hear him]]. Nagisa and Mokuzu end up trying to [[TheRunaway runaway]] with each other but... It ends [[spoiler:[[KillTheCutie very poorly]].]]
* Kumiko from ''Literature/SoundEuphonium'' comes off as this in the anime adaptation. In the books she's at most AmbiguouslyBi. The anime removed or toned down almost all of her scenes with her male love interest, Shuichi, while in return it amped up the HomoeroticSubtext between her and Reina to excruciating levels.

Whether Kumiko's confession was in a sisterly or romantic context is left vague.

other. She also gets quite upset when Marnie shows interest in a YuriGenre manga. The question boy. However the last minute reveal that [[spoiler:Marnie is "Did she like Hazumu when [[GenderBender she was Anna's DeadAllAlong ''grandmother'' as a boy]]?" She didn't seem to however child]] really [[RelationshipWritingFumble muddles up]] the story's intentions.
* ''Anime/YuGiOh'':
** In ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', Doctor Chronos/ Dr. Crowler dresses ''very'' flamboyantly, although
there isn't was one episode where he - like all the other males - seemed attracted to Dark Magician Girl. Also, there was Johan/Jesse Anderson, Judai's new [[HoYay best friend]] who wears frilly shirts, uses the ace card Rainbow Dragon, and spends a little too much shown of their relationship pre-genderbend.
* ''Anime/KillLaKill'':
** Ryuko shows no interest in boys throughout the series. She instead has a close bond
time with Mako [[spoiler:and the series ends Judai for us to believe he's completely straight. His subtext with them going on a date, though whether Judai is spread so thick that it's romantic or platonic is left vague especially since they meet up with Ryuko's sister and hang out with her.]]
noted on in-universe.
** As mentioned, Mako. She gets a nosebleed due to Ryuko and is quite close to her, [[spoiler:even kissing her]], however it's ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'' has Mr. Heartland, an {{Expy}} of Pegasus (and shockingly enough, voiced by the same actor) who comes off just ambiguous enough to call it 'simply humor' or she is really in love with Ryuko. She has some ShipTease with Gamagoori and her though, [[spoiler:and the above-mentioned date scene implies he is going to confess to her.]]as gay, if not more! [[SissyVillain (But far more evil.)]]



* ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd''
** Yuu falls between this and AmbiguouslyBi in that while he blushes around girls and acts appreciative of their feelings for him he acts much more interested in Mika. He also shows no reaction when seeing Shinoa and Mitsuba in the shower and in the fanbook Yuu acts disinterested in Mitsuba wearing civilian clothes but when he sees Yoichi wearing them he exclaims "Oh! Those civilian clothes look seriously good on you, Yoichi!" He also responds "shut up" when asked what he likes in the opposite sex.
** Mika shows no interest in females and acts [[{{Yandere}} incredibly possessive]] around Yuu.
** At one point in the manga, Shinoa jokes that Kimizuki "swings that way" to the rest of the squad who all look visibly shocked. Yoichi reacts with, "He does?!" while blushing.
** Shinya shows little interest in women (including his former fiance) and flirts with Guren constantly. His answer to "what he looks for in the opposite sex" in the official fanbook almost seems to imply he's "tired" of trying to be with women. Also, in the drama cd translation the girl crazy Goshi says they need to spend a Christmas with girls before they go to war to which Shinya responds "I'm not sure about the part with girls but I support having a Christmas party."
* ''Manga/SailorMoon'' Movie R presents Fiore whose (supposedly) only friend on Earth was Mamoru/Darien a.k.a. Tuxedo Mask. When he returns, he's possessed by the Xenian Flower and becomes a {{Yandere}} for Mamoru, wanting to be his OnlyFriend and [[MurderTheHypotenuse kill]] off Sailor Moon.
* Anna from ''Anime/WhenMarnieWasThere'' develops a very close and intimate friendship with the titular Marnie that consists of having a OldFashionedRowboatDate, cute dancing together, and declaring their love for each other. She also gets quite upset when Marnie shows interest in a boy. However the last minute reveal that [[spoiler:Marnie is Anna's DeadAllAlong ''grandmother'' as a child]] really [[RelationshipWritingFumble muddles up]] the story's intentions.
* Izetta and Finé the leading ladies of ''Anime/IzettaTheLastWitch'' have shown no interest in men and share great affection towards each other due to their history as childhood friends. Izetta shows strong devotion to Finé and is willing to break her taboo openly using magic to protect her while Finé at one point called Izetta, 'My White Witch'. Notably, prior to their reunion in the first episode, Finé dreams of her first meeting with Izetta and thinks about her a few times before offering herself up for a political marriage she previously declined.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'' has several examples - Freed Justine, Kagura Mikazuchi, and Cana. Freed hero-worships Laxus while Kagura looks up to Erza as a big sister, but at times, it seems like they have crushes on their respective idols (not helped by Kagura [[spoiler:kissing Kagura on the lips]] and the anime [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderizing]] Freed to make him wonder what Laxus would do before making any decision). Meanwhile, Cana has a habit of [[SkinshipGrope feeling up]] just about any attractive woman in later chapters (her most common target being Lucy).

On the other side, there's the possibility that familial and sexual affection may not be mutually exclusive for Shinji due to his desperation and traumatic upbringing.

Her room is covered in posters and figurines of moe girls, she talks about Miyuki's breasts (in a joking manner?), she is obsessed with adult dating games (but girls like those too... right?). She seems to have massive picture archives of moe girls classified into different fetishes on her computer, seeming to include pornographic images as is hinted at in one episode. She definitely admires the female form. She and Kagami seem entangled in some sort of [[BelligerentSexualTension love-hate]] [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship quasi-romantic relationship]]. Konata, after Kagami give up her seat to her at a concert, seemingly touched remarks, "What is this feeling?" Konata seems to have only ever had female friends despite having interests which should win her plenty of male attention.
** On the other hand, Konata enjoys working at a CosplayCafe where she claims to enjoy the attention of the male customers whom she says are "kind of like" her boyfriends. She also seems to mention wanting a boyfriend (maybe? hard to sort out the exact words she used. might've been "lover". It was more of a daydream thing anyway where she imagined herself as several ''VisualNovel/DaCapo'' characters before being swept off her feet by a bishounen [and therefore ambiguously male] version of herself). She also commented that she doesn't really like giant robot shows for the action but just thinks the bishi characters are hot. Whether she's talking about the bishounen or bishoujo character is not clear, though, as she seems to be watching ''Anime/CodeGeass'' when she makes the comment.
* Fate of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. In chapter 336 where he says "He (Negi) already belongs to me. Give up." and the end of the chapter reads "The strongest love (?) rival appears."

* Gilbert Nightray/Raven of ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' is practically in the TransparentCloset by the end of the series. He's shown no interest in the many females that fawn over him at parties but constantly fawns himself over [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Oz]], his [[DevotedToYou chosen master]] and LivingEmotionalCrutch. He's also quite [[{{Bishonen}} feminine]] in appearance; the manga artist likes to have him dress up in girls clothes.

* [[AlliterativeName Moe Morita]] / [[CodeName Flamenco Sapphire]] from ''Anime/SamuraiFlamenco''. She frequently blushes around Mari, an older girl in her [[IdolSinger idol group]], and reacts dreamily whenever Mari playfully kisses her. At one point she's shown expecting a kiss from Mari, and not only becomes visibly disappointed when it doesn't happen, but later states that she doesn't mind being manipulated by her.

* Kaorin in ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'', though the "Ambiguously" steadily breaks down over the course of the series and becomes TransparentCloset (though she claims it's a case of SingleTargetSexuality). It starts getting lampshaded by the other characters including one point where Osaka just flat out asks her if she's gay or not. It's obvious she likes Sakaki though there is vagueness if she's bi or gay.

** Nyamo fits the LesbianJock trope and many fans have guessed that the only way she stay close to [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Yukari]] is because of romantic feelings. According to the manga, she was in an all-girls high school however Yukari blackmails her with a NoodleIncident involving a love letter. From her reaction, it's likely Nyamo was the one who gave the letter rather than received it. It's never mentioned who she gave the letter to, however the all-girl setting implies it was to a girl. Still, Nyamo seems interested in men and getting married to one some day.






* Kumiko from ''Literature/SoundEuphonium'' comes off as this in the anime adaptation. In the light novel she's at most AmbiguouslyBi. The anime removed or toned down almost all of her scenes with her male love interest Shuuichi while in return amped up the LesYay between her and Reina to excruciating levels. The DuetBonding scene between the two, with all its romantic overtones and Reina grazing her finger on Kumiko's face to her lips, is only the tip of the iceberg.

Kumiko seems utterly uninterested in Shuichi (and in fact in the books, [[spoiler:others had to tell her that she liked him in order for her to notice her own feelings for him]]) [[ObliviousToLove despite]] his obvious crush on her. The anime ultimately ends on [[spoiler:NoRomanticResolution with either Shuichi or Reina]] however she does have a very heartfelt love confession to [[spoiler:''Asuka'']]. Whether Kumiko's confession was in a sisterly or romantic context is left vague.

* ''Manga/FairyTail'' has several examples - Freed Justine, Kagura Mikazuchi, and Cana. The first two either hero worship Laxus and Erza, respectively, or have a crush on them (not helped by Kagura [[spoiler:kissing Kagura on the lips]] and the anime [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderizing]] Freed to make him wonder what Laxus would do before any decision). Meanwhile, Cana has a habit of [[SkinshipGrope feeling up]] just about any attractive woman in later chapters (her most common target being Lucy).
