* In ''FullMetalPanic'', Gauron has a ''lot'' of one-sided HoYay and FoeYay towards Sousuke. Sweet mother of Freud, the guy constantly makes incredibly gay innuendos towards Sousuke, and implies that [[RedStringOfFate fate is what brings them together]]. Gauron apparently became Sousuke's StalkerWithACrush and [[InLoveWithYourCarnage fell in love with his "beautiful" cold and unfeeling eyes]] when Sousuke was ''[[{{Shotacon}} twelve]]''. Seriously-when Gauron [[LoveAtFirstSight first saw him]], he literally did a double take, parked his jeep, and tried to pick him up. He keeps calling Sousuke "Honey," much to Sousuke's disgust. And then there's their fight during the finale of the first season, where [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Gauron hugs Sousuke's]] HumongousMecha [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything with his own and pins him onto the floor in a]] ''[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything very]]'' [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything awkward position]]. Sousuke struggles to get away, and Gauron gleefully says things like, "let's be friends" and "I'm so happy, you've stuck with me till the end." Sousuke is shown sweating and panting, and Gauron's broken down mecha starts leaking thick ''white liquid'' onto his face with his trademark permanent SlasherSmile on it. Of course, Gauron's ultimate intention is to detonate his mecha with 300 kilograms of explosives and kill both of them (which might very well be his idea of getting to fourth base with Sousuke), but it ''looks'' for all the world like giant robot sexual assault. The manga even has him yelling out happily, "Yeah, that's what I'm talking about! Ah, what a rush!" And as impossible as this sounds, Gauron's moaning and loud orgasms are actually more pronounced in the novels, where he literally yells out happily, [[FreudWasRight "RIGHT, RIGHT, RIGHT! FASTER! MORE! MORE!!"]] It makes Sousuke very unnerved and disgusted, and is pretty much what pushed Sousuke to conclude that this makes Gauron completely insane (as opposed to before, where he simply thought Gauron was excessively cruel). All in all, it's heavily implied that Gauron was genuinely in love with Sousuke in his own twisted way.

** And in the ''FullMetalPanic'' novels, Lemon seems to be BiTheWay towards Sousuke. Sure, he has a crush on Nami... but she also did a whole lot more to warrant it (stripping jokingly in front of him, offering to prostitute herself for money from him jokingly, holding his arm while her breasts press against him, and putting him in a situation where he [[ThanksForTheMammary accidentally found himself groping her breast]]). And then there are the numerous times he's shown to have a strong attraction to Sousuke, despite Sousuke not even doing much besides being good looking and simply being there. When he first saw Sousuke, he thinks to himself that Sousuke is ''very'' [[EvenTheGuysWantHim good looking]] and "charming," despite Sousuke being [[TheStoic completely emotionless]] (read: "eye candy"). Later, after Sousuke wins a tournament that helped win back Lemon's money, Lemon hugged Sousuke with "more passion than a french kiss would warrant," making Sousuke ''slightly'' uncomfortable. And later still, Lemon gets drunk, and subsequently invades Sousuke's personal space by hugging and groping him while blushing - which [[HatesBeingTouched irritates Sousuke to no end]].

** Some {{Lampshaded}} and teased HoYay / FoeYay is found between Tsubaki and Sousuke, with their constant bickering. In the last episode of Fumoffu, when Tsubaki thinks he's going to die, he even tells Sousuke that confessing to the girl he loves isn't as important to him as having one last fight between them. Matters aren't helped when, in one side story of the novels, Tsubaki makes a mistake and accidentally confesses that the one he loves is Sousuke. Afterwards, [[YaoiFangirl Kaname]] is shown to giggle and discuss who would be the [[{{Uke}} submissive]] "receiver". She says ''both'' of them are.

*** For example, on at least one occasion, Mao got completely drunk and decided to ''climb into Tessa's bed.'' Or the completely out-of-the-blue decision to grope Tessa's breasts underneath her shirt after Tessa passed out from getting drunk. Or the HotSpringsEpisode from Fumoffu where Mao starts rubbing ointment on Tessa's naked butt and then Mao starts moving on to other places and Tessa is heard telling Mao not to "stare at me like that!''

** In episode 11 from ''Fumoffu'', a CampGay male trio from the Music Club challenges Sousuke to a bet -- if he can pick up a girl, they'll pay for his meals, but if he can't, he has to... ''swim in a lake, naked, while they watch''. It should be noted that when the Music Club announced this bet, numerous ''male'' students actually happily yelled out, "All right, Music Club!" He loses the bet (due to acting overly scary and violent), and they are ''way'' too eager to see him naked, chanting for him to "strip!" (and they're even shown leering, smiling, and blushing).

** Another HoYay (albeit VERY NoYay) example: In an episode from "Fumoffu" an elderly janitor from Sousuke's school is shown having a fantasy of having a threesome with Sousuke and Tsubaki. In his creepy envisioning of what he thinks is about to happen, chains are abundant and roses are used as censors. Yuck.

** When Tessa introduces herself to Kaname's high school class in Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu all the guys go "WOOOAH!" while all the [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer girls]] cry "Oh she's so cute!" with accompanying love hearts.

** Gauron seems to have lost some of his edge and become even more messed up since falling for Sousuke... after all, if he didn't care about Sousuke, he wouldn't have been so very angry in the first place...

** And then there's Zaied's attachment to Sousuke. Pretty much in the entire, short amount of time he was shown, he was constantly thinking about GaussianGirl-like memories of Sousuke, and whispering his name. He has fond memories of playing naked in the water with Sousuke, and he is shown to have been watching [[CuteShotaroBoy Sousuke]] while he was sleeping. The implications of that are made a bit clearer when one considers the novels, where Sousuke [[{{Lampshades}} notes]] that he always had the odd feeling that the fellow guerillas he worked with treated him especially nice, and seemed like they were ready to jump and rape him when he was asleep just because he was so darn pretty. And although Sousuke doesn't hesitate to kill him, at the end, [[spoiler: although he had his gun pointed at Sousuke and could've killed Sousuke with his last energy, he chose not to, and instead fired his remaining ammo into the air]].

** When Sousuke was a [[CuteShotaroBoy child]] he elicited the ImTakingHerHomeWithMe kind of response. His CutenessProximity was so incredibly intense, it managed to melt the hearts of ''war-hardened veterans'' and pretty much made them internally {{Squee}} that they want to take him home and make him their child. Which they then proceed to attempt to do. He certainly never lacked people who were all too eager to take him in as their own. Starting with Majid, an [[strike: Afghanistani]] Helmajistani rebellion leader whom Sousuke had ''tried to assassinate'', who liked him so much that he adopted him as his "Son of Bdakshon's Tiger," and raised him with complete kindness. And then there was Kalinin, who wanted Sousuke as his son from the very beginning, and took Sousuke as a prisoner of war ''after Sousuke tried to assassinate him''. He then proceeds to persistently try to get Sousuke to agree to be his adopted son (which Sousuke refused, since he already had Majid as his "father" - yes, it got to the point of being a first-come-first-serve basis). After Majid dies, Kalinin ''finally'' manages to force his way and get Sousuke to be his legally adopted son. And all while that was going on, [[AxCrazy Gauron]] had tried to take Sousuke for himself [[LoveAtFirstSight ever since the moment he first set eyes on the boy]]. He ''literally'' did a double take, parked his jeep, and tried to lure Sousuke to come with him by promising him food and ammunition. Sousuke refuses, and Gauron ends up [[StalkerWithACrush being unable to forget him for the next five years]]. (Though in Gauron's case, it's more of a [[{{Shotacon}} pedophile rapist, sexual version]] of wanting to take him home, unlike the previous two).

** Mao dressed as a nurse when she was looking after Kaname, and FridgeBrilliance dictates that it would be Mao who would be taking care of her physical needs.
*** Sorry to blow your theory down, but Mao didn't actually take care of Kaname; she merely sneaked in to deliver the message, and immediately left afterward. The hospital personnel would have noticed the intruder if she had stuck around much longer. That said, during her time on the submarine, Kaname does think about how cool and sexy Mao is, though there is still a certain distance between them, mostly due to Mao being Tessa's friend first and foremost...

*** And speaking of Gauron, he seems to have lost some of his edge and become even more messed up since falling for Sousuke... after all, if he didn't care about Sousuke, he wouldn't have been so very angry in the first place...
*** This is actually brought up and symbolically implied in the novels (though apparently parts of it were lost in the fan translation). Members of Amalgam actually covertly bring up to Sousuke how Gauron was overtaken by "cancer," all while mentioning that he "really really liked Sousuke"... and according to the original wording, a parallel is implied of Kaname being Sousuke's "Gan" (cancer), and Sousuke being Gauron's "Gan". Of course, any possible double meaning [[ObliviousToLove was lost to Sousuke]]. In addition, reading about the overall attitude of Gauron's colleagues when they talk to Sousuke, it seems like it's a well known fact to them that Gauron was way too obsessed with Sousuke.
