*{{Workaholic}}: This hero doesn't have time for romantic relationships. They're too busy saving the world/patrolling the city/training ToBeAMaster/etc. This will likely be phrased as being "[[MarriedToTheJob married to his/her job]]".

* Rare today is the idea that the heroes' powers ''rely'' on their [[VirginPower remaining celibate]], or that they are celibate out of religious or moral conviction. Most commonly this is found in fantasy settings, which may feature religious orders or mystical powers that may be influenced by sexual activity. Male examples, of course, are never in a setting based in the real world, because [[AManIsNotAVirgin a man is never, ever a virgin, and don't you dare claim otherwise]]!

* Rarely used in any notable works today in any media for reasons other than religious beliefs or medical disability. If for religious reasons, it is often depicted by bringing attention to the fact, usually in the form of temptation. Expect Buddhist (or any other celibate or abstinence associated religion) characters seeking to abstain from physical distractions to fit in here often.
* Occasionally a case of [[UnsettlingGenderReveal a Hero everyone thinks is male actually being female]], and pretending to be celibate, asexual or otherwise uninterested in physical relationships (and may be a case of [[HatesBeingTouched panicking whenever touched at all for this very reason]]) in order to avoid discovery. You can pretty much guarantee that someone is going to try and pounce her anyway, and discover their true identity. If it's an ally, they'll probably be sworn to secrecy, but let it get out somehow anyway. If they're an enemy, you can be assured they'll use it against the Hero, especially if she continues to keep it a secret from her fellow teammates.

* "True Love Doesn't Exist Anymore" - They are absolutely sickened by the sexual and/or romantic values of most if not all of the other characters, and find it sickening that anyone would even ''think'' that they would stoop to the same level. May come off to passers-by as merely haughtiness (and it certainly can be), but if the character in question remembers a World or a time in which his or her values still existed, were far more common, or were maybe even the standard, then it would be more accurate to say that the character looks at the current World as a WretchedHive and/or ViceCity and its inhabitants as immoral, awful people. Can often overlap with HurtingHero and RebelliousRebel. Sometimes overlaps with BreakTheCutie, TheWoobie (especially StoicWoobie), DoomedMoralVictor, and WithFriendsLikeThese. It can even overlap with TheMcCoy, in which case the character may be a combination of two polar opposites: TheCynic and TheIdealist.
