** Maximillian Galactica, from the third case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Justice For All'' wears pink, constantly says "fabulous", and calls Phoenix "sweetie". Although early in the case it's discovered that [[CampStraight he proposed to a girl]].

** Bedsmith from ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam'' is a much more obvious example, apparently needing to nap on Prince Dreambert every chance he gets, even chasing him once.

* ''BatenKaitos'' has Geldoblame. In ''Origins'' he has an affinity for children's toys and cute things, a generally prissy demeanor (but he's an Imperial politician, so that's not a huge indicator) and keeps a scrapbook of another male character by his bed. He also [[spoiler:takes that character's betrayal quite hard, almost as a spurned lover.]] * ''[[VideoGame/{{Banjo-Kazooie}} Banjo-Tooie]]'' has the glorious font of GettingCrapPastTheRadar that is Jolly Roger. His mannerisms, his voice, his partner Merry Maggie looking like a guy in drags (and having one of the deepest voices in the game), then there's things like [[HelloSailor "Seaman's Surprise"]] and [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything "Toad in the Hole"]]. In ''Nuts and Bolts'', Jolly now wears a purple robe, a belly shirt, and pink pants, screams like a girl if you hit him or attempt to run him over, and he ''paints Banjo's house pink'' at the end of the game! And he sometimes calls Banjo "Teddy Bear".

* Ebisumaru from ''GanbareGoemon'' is a glaring example of this trope, right down to the mincing gait and occasional crossdressing (not to mention his admiration of Goemon that borders on attraction). He's shown to be ''very'' interested in women, however, and to top it all off is [[spoiler:the revelation of his daughter Mao at the end of ''Goemon's Great Adventure'']] though [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse no mention of it is made after that.]]

** In ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII'', their relationship is taken to a razor's edge width from dropping the "ambiguous" part, with the database itself mentioning that Fang and Vanille share a bond with each other that goes beyond family, and despite the fact that Fang and Vanille are separated throughout the entire game, they ''still'' have so much subtext, it's borderline ridiculous that SquareEnix don't just give the WordOfGay. One particularly notable moment is when Lightning gives Fang a speech about her relationship with Vanille that is nearly identical to the one she gave Snow about his relationship with Serah.

* Lucretia, Lelei and Cathari in ''SuikodenV''. Lelei has been [[WordOfGay confirmed as lesbian]] and is hopelessly in love with Lucretia, who is implied to have been romantically involved with Cathari in the past. A few lines of dialogue (followed by a fade-to-black) between Lelei and Lucretia on the night before the big battle might easily be seen as a RelationshipReveal. It's a ''{{Suikoden}}'' game, of course, so these are only the most obvious examples. * Although his presence is brief, Belzeber from ''StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime'' certainly gives off this vibe. He speaks in an eccentric tone, has very flamboyant mannerisms, and wears lipstick.

* ''JakAndDaxter'': Razer in ''Jak X''. Every other character says "Wham, bam, thank you ma'am!" as a victory line, even Ashelin. Razer, however...

* Male [[{{Bishonen}} Blood Elves]] in ''WorldOfWarcraft'', though more as a joke than anything. Not only is this a joke among the players but many of the male Blood Elves' /emotes, particularity /joke, dab in this trope. Then there's Martek's tale in the quest "The Day that Deathwing Came: What Really Happened." Ironically, male Blood Elves are larger and more muscular then the average real-life male.

* ''RoseGunsDays'' has Miguel Kurashiki, a character [[RealMenWearPink who dresses and acts in a very feminine fashion]], [[EffeminateMisogynisticGuy has a deep aversion for women]] and is [[HoYay very close to his boss Caleb]], yet is never explicitly stated to "swing that way". Characters who face him usually are too busy fighting him or not making him angry to worry about such considerations anyway.

* Luigi from ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' comes off this way in certain depictions. How he reacts to the shiny {{bishonen}} Prince Peasley in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga'', his Level Up stance in ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Bowser's Inside Story]]'', and about ''every'' move he makes in the [=RPGs=] is some form of ''gay dancing'', a tendency that reappears in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' as his Final Smash.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius'' has Ike. At the end of ''Radiant Dawn'', he only gets a special ending with Soren or Ranulf if he gets an 'A' level support with either, in which he leaves the continent with said character. Coupling this with how Ike never shows any type of strong affection toward females aside from his sister, Ike's sexuality is definitely in question.

** Speaking of Soren, calling his sexuality questionable is frankly giving it too much credit. He also shows affection towards Ike in a more passionate way than the other way around, even vowing to always be at Ike's side. ** ''Radiant Dawn'' also has Heather, though it can be debated whether it's actually ambiguous.

It's ambiguous exactly what kind of descendant he is, since a wife is never mentioned, and his sister does get married (collateral descendance has been noted before in the series)... arguing about it causes many a InternetBackdraft.]] ** Speaking of Soren, calling his sexuality questionable is frankly giving it too much credit.

* Joshua from ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou''. His favorite color is pink; he loves rainbows, takes pictures of the main character's ass and calls him pet names; and as one announcer put it: "When he sees a hole, he knows how to fill it". Not to mention his constant girlish giggling.

** In his appearance in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance'' he not-so-subtly flirts with both Riku and Neku. Seems Joshua has a type.
