Listing all the LesYay in ''LyricalNanoha'' is an exercise in futility as it will involve practically [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters every]] [[ImprobablyFemaleCast character]] from the main leads to ThoseTwoGirls. If you want to save time, let's just say there are three undoubtedly straight couples - Chrono/Amy, Erio/Caro and Tohma/Lily in ''[[NanohaForce Force]]''.
----

* Nanoha Takamachi and Fate Testarossa-Harlaown.
** Nanoha's first impression of Fate is "the girl with [[WhatBeautifulEyes sad and beautiful eyes]]," and soon makes it her number one priority to remove that sadness, [[TheDulcineaEffect even at severe detriment]] to her safety and her quest for the Jewel Seeds. After their last battle against each other, Nanoha gives Fate a BridalCarry and season one ends with the two embracing after swapping hair ribbons and promising to call the other's name when they need them. They're currently [[ThereIsOnlyOneBed sharing a bed]] and [[HasTwoMommies raising a daughter]] together, who considers both of them her "mama."
** WordOfGay has also come down from the voice actresses for the two characters.
** The movie remake of the first season cranked the Les Yay quotient up considerably. Not only was new Les Yay added and existing Les Yay enhanced, but all of the heterosexual ShipTease moments from the original first season got cut out.
* Vivio's found herself in her own Les Yay relationship with Einhart Stratos in ''Manga/{{ViVid}}''. [[GeneticMemory Inheriting her royal ancestor's bitter regret of failing]] to protect his beloved rival, the Sankt Kaiser, in the end, Einhart seeks out Vivio... only to learn that she is her own person and not just the Holy Queen reborn. And yet, even though she knows that she's not the Queen she seeks, she still finds herself drawn to her, wishing to meet her again. Meanwhile, Vivio wishes to communicate her true feelings to Einhart and has made it her goal to rise to her expectations and become as strong as the Holy Queen that Einhart remembers through the Hegemon's memories. There's also a semi-canon side story where Einheart asks to try Vivio's home-made cookies, while being clearly embarrassed and Vivio gets ''very'' worked up, while trying to make said cookies as delicious as possible, so she wouldn't dislike her.
* Hayate "Harem Master" Yagami and...
** [[BodyguardCrush ... Vita]]. They did the Only One Bed thing before Nanoha and Fate, and Vita spends as much waking time as possible cuddling Hayate. Vita's NiceHat that Hayate gave to her is her BerserkButton, causing her to unleashing a rocket-drill on Nanoha after she damages it. Hayate [[spoiler:only finally snaps once Vita is killed, and after the Wolkenritter are resurrected]] Vita tearfully {{glomp}}s Hayate. The manga has Hayate caressing Vita with the latter blushing while they talk about how they like to always live together. The last Sound Stage of the third season has the two of them discussing the events of the Cradle after Hayate playfully tackles Vita into bed.
** ... Signum. Hayate [[SkinshipGrope gropes Signum while she's]] [[DudeShesLikeInAComa asleep]], because she knows that Signum would be terribly embarrassed if she did it while she was awake, and Signum is seen holding her in a very compromising position (complete with blushing Hayate) in the artbook. Signum's emotions for Hayate, [[TheStoic as understated as they are]], are still visibly there in every look.
** ... Shamal. As Hayate notes in the first [[NanohaAs A's]] Sound Stage that she also enjoys being held by Shamal, and when Hayate says that Shamal's breasts feel nice, Shamal giggles with pleasure. At the end of the sound stage, Shamal tucks Hayate in while thinking about her desire to protect her in return for the happiness she's received from her. There's also the scene in [[NanohaAs A's]] episode 3 where Hayate gets into a bath with Shamal, and apparently greatly enjoys Shamal scrubbing her leg.
** ... Reinforce Eins. For the brief time they were together in the prime continuity, the two of them have generated a remarkable amount of LesYay--from Hayate lovingly cradling Eins' face in her hands to Eins telling her she is "the happiest magical tome in the world" while performing a HeroicSacrifice to save her and the Knights. Perhaps most blatant of all is the two of them de facto ''having a child'', as Rein Zwei was [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything born from Eins' Linker Core merging with Hayate's]].
* Teana Lanstar and Subaru Nakajima. Subaru's greatest wish is for her and Teana to always be together forever. Teana is all {{Tsundere}} around Subaru, and even their classmates during training school noticed it. Their vacation together screams "Date," complete with a scene where Subaru feeds Teana. When things were looking grim for Teana during the final battle, her thoughts lingered over to her times with Subaru, and she wonders why she was thinking of her then. Then there's the scene where Subaru wakes Teana up by [[SkinshipGrope groping her breasts]], and TheGlomp Subaru gives Teana when they're reunited in ''SoundStageX'', complete with [[HeartSymbol little hearts]] floating around Subaru. Subaru even uses "daisuki" (a strong, if [[LoveYouAndEverybody ambiguous]], Japanese word for love) on Teana, resulting in Teana getting very shocked in the first ''Audioplay/{{StrikerS Sound Stage X}}''. Subaru generated so much LesYay that gave rise to the "[[MemeticMutation Rainbows are straighter than Subaru" meme.]]
* Subaru Nakajima and Ixpellia. Ixpellia is very aware of being ReallySevenHundredYearsOld and Subaru is one of the few human beings she trusts, as the person who pulled her from the darkness of being the KingInTheMountain into the new era. She declared that she loved Subaru, before falling unto a ConvenientComa.
* Arf's devotion to Fate in season 1 borders on a BodyguardCrush. When Nanoha tries to befriend Fate and reach out to her, Arf is surprisingly insistent that Fate not listen to her, to the point of seeming jealous. When the TSAB starts pursuing Fate, Arf suggests that the two run away to a place where just the two of them can live together. Near the end, Arf caresses a catatonic Fate's face while suggesting that after everything is over, she will help bring back the Fate that she "loves so much". She also holds an UnbrokenVigil for Fate in episode 8 of the second season, while she is unconscious after having her Linker Core stolen.
* And then there's Fate and Signum. In addition to how well those two get along [[WorthyOpponent even when they were still enemies]], there's also that [[AudioAdaptation third Sound Stage]] in ''[[NanohaAs A's]]'', where after hearing how well Fate sings during a karaoke session, Signum approaches Fate and flat out asks her if she could personally sing for her sometime in the future, saying that she loves listening to good songs. As everyone takes note how Signum seems to be in a very good mood, Shamal mentions that "Signum is really fond of Testarossa-chan". Alas, Arf responded by saying that, while Fate likes Signum too, it's not in the same way that she likes Nanoha.
* Nanoha and Vita, as Vita often acts in a {{Tsundere}} fashion around Nanoha. For example, she offers to help Nanoha out in the third Sound Stage of [[NanohaAs A's]], then gets annoyed when Nanoha pets her on the head, which is repeated in a similar fashion at the end of ''Anime/StrikerS'' episode 6. Vita is also motivated by a desire to protect Nanoha, almost to the same degree as her desire to protect Hayate, after the incident where Nanoha was injured and nearly crippled while on a mission with her. And then there is the extra chapter in ''Manga/{{ViVid}}'', which ends with Vita waking up to find Nanoha is {{Bridal Carry}}ing her to Hayate's house, because she didn't want to wake her up. Her reaction is priceless.
* We weren't lying when we said that even ThoseTwoGirls would be involved -- in episode 6, once Nanoha starts [[JumpedAtTheCall jumping into the whole]] MagicalGirl thing, Arisa gets angry that Nanoha's pulling away and thinks that there's something wrong, and desperately wants to know what's going on so that she could be there for Nanoha.
* Then Fate shows up, and Arisa starts crushing on ''her'' even more blatantly than she crushed on Nanoha in season 1, acting like a total FanGirl. One can only imagine her reaction when she finds out that the two of them are together.
* While Lily does look like she is straight for Thoma, she and Isis definitely act very hands-on around each other. Isis' sexuality is still up to debate, though, since (typically for the franchise) she has never displayed any obviously ''romantic'' feelings towards anybody yet.
* Signum and Agito, post-''Anime/StrikerS''. Agito is the only one who isn't a Wolkenritter, Hayate or Fate who can [[WhenSheSmiles make Signum smile]]. She is also the only member of the "Yagami family" who isn't personally devoted to Hayate but, instead, directly to Signum. ''And'' she calls Signum "danna", which can mean both "master" and "husband" in Japanese. Bonus points for their relationship having slight D/s undertones: Signum is a [[{{Dominatrix}} dominant woman]] with a WhipSword, while Agito wears a collar and a pair of handcuffs in her battle mode.
* And while the main continuity kept most of this implied, then came ''[[NanohaInnocent INNOCENT]]'', which being promotional vehicle for a mobile phone CardBattleGame and a LighterAndSofter AlternateUniverse, decided to just ditch the subtlety altogether. Hence we got:
** Nanoha and Fate's RomanticTwoGirlFriendship getting cranked UpToEleven, with practically all of their scenes outside the game playing out like they're from a yuri manga, to the point of making everyone else present feel awkward. Amusingly enough, Fate seems to be the one more outspoken about her feelings here;
** Hayate teasing and outright [[TheGlomp glomping]] Dearche, while casually proclaiming "I love you, my king!". Dearche as usual responds with a very transparent {{tsundere}} act. Hayate also asks her if she'd like to be her big sister, while flirting with her. When you consider that all her romantic options from the main continuity are possibly related to her in this one, this might imply she prefers [[IncestSubtext keeping it in the family]];
** Hints of [[CrackPairing Lindy/Precia]], which makes more sense in this universe, where Precia is merely a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and not an EvilMatriarch. Her and Lindy are long-term friends and business partners, but will occasionally act LikeAnOldMarriedCouple, and Alicia claims the Testarossa and Harlaown families are one whole. Make of that what you will;
** Reinforce insisting on calling Hayate "Master", even in public, much to Hayate's embarrassment. It's a MythologyGag to the main continuity sure, but in the context of ''this'' universe, where they are both regular human girls it makes one wonder about the nature of [[{{Dominatrix}} their relationship]].

* Signum and Agito, post-''[=StrikerS=]''. Agito is the only one who isn't a Wolkenritter, Hayate or Fate who can [[WhenSheSmiles make Signum smile]]. She is also the only member of the "Yagami family" who isn't personally devoted to Hayate but, instead, directly to Signum. ''And'' she calls Signum "danna", which can mean both "master" and "husband" in Japanese. Bonus points for their relationship having slight D/s undertones: Signum is a [[{{Dominatrix}} dominant woman]] with a WhipSword, while Agito wears a collar and a pair of handcuffs in her battle mode.

* And while the main continuity kept most of this implied, then came ''[[NanohaInnocent INNOCENT]]'', which being promotional vehicle for a mobile phone CardBattleGame and a LighterAndSofter AlternateUniverse, decided to just ditch the subtlety altogether. Hence we got:
** Nanoha and Fate's RomanticTwoGirlFriendship getting cranked UpToEleven, with practically all of their scenes outside the game playing out like they're from a yuri manga, to the point of making everyone else present feel awkward. Amusingly enough, Fate seems to be the one more outspoken about her feelings here;
** Hayate teasing and outright [[TheGlomp glomping]] Dearche, while casually proclaiming "I love you, my king!". Dearche as usual responds with a very transparent {{tsundere}} act. Hayate also asks her if she'd like to be her big sister, while flirting with her. When you consider that all her romantic options from the main continuity are possibly related to her in this one, this might imply she prefers [[IncestSubtext keeping it in the family]];
** Hints of [[CrackPairing Lindy/Precia]], which makes more sense in this universe, where Precia is merely a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and not an EvilMatriarch. Her and Lindy are long-term friends and business partners, but will occasionally act LikeAnOldMarriedCouple, and Alicia claims the Testarossa and Harlaown families are one whole. Make of that what you will;
** Reinforce insisting on calling Hayate "Master", even in public, much to Hayate's embarrassment. It's a MythologyGag to the main continuity sure, but in the context of ''this'' universe, where they are both regular human girls it makes one wonder about the nature of [[{{Dominatrix}} their relationship]].

* Teana Lanstar and Subaru Nakajima. Subaru's greatest wish is for her and Teana to always be together forever. Teana is all {{Tsundere}} around Subaru, and even their classmates during training school noticed it. Their vacation together screams "Date," complete with a scene where Subaru feeds Teana. When things were looking grim for Teana during the final battle, her thoughts lingered over to her times with Subaru, and she wonders why she was thinking of her then. Then there's the scene where Subaru wakes Teana up by [[SkinshipGrope groping her breasts]], and TheGlomp Subaru gives Teana when they're reunited in ''SoundStageX'', complete with [[HeartSymbol little hearts]] floating around Subaru. Subaru even uses "daisuki" (a strong, if [[LoveYouAndEverybody ambiguous]], Japanese word for love) on Teana, resulting in Teana getting very shocked in the first ''StrikerSSoundStageX''. Subaru generated so much LesYay that gave rise to the "[[MemeticMutation Rainbows are straighter than Subaru" meme.]]

* [[BodyguardCrush Hayate Yagami and Vita]]. They did the Only One Bed thing before Nanoha and Fate, and Vita spends as much waking time as possible cuddling Hayate. Vita's NiceHat that Hayate gave to her is her BerserkButton, causing her to unleashing a rocket-drill on Nanoha after she damages it. Hayate [[spoiler:only finally snaps once Vita is killed, and after the Wolkenritter are resurrected]] Vita tearfully {{glomp}}s Hayate. The manga has Hayate caressing Vita with the latter blushing while they talk about how they like to always live together. The last Sound Stage of the third season has the two of them discussing the events of the Cradle after Hayate playfully tackles Vita into bed.
* Hayate and Signum. Hayate [[SkinshipGrope gropes Signum while she's]] [[DudeShesLikeInAComa asleep]], because she knows that Signum would be terribly embarrassed if she did it while she was awake, and Signum is seen holding her in a very compromising position (complete with blushing Hayate) in the artbook. Signum's emotions for Hayate, [[TheStoic as understated as they are]], are still visibly there in every look.
* Hayate and Shamal. As Hayate notes in the first [[NanohaAs A's]] Sound Stage that she also enjoys being held by Shamal, and when Hayate says that Shamal's breasts feel nice, Shamal giggles with pleasure. At the end of the sound stage, Shamal tucks Hayate in while thinking about her desire to protect her in return for the happiness she's received from her. There's also the scene in [[NanohaAs A's]] episode 3 where Hayate gets into a bath with Shamal, and apparently greatly enjoys Shamal scrubbing her leg.

** ...Reinforce Eins. For the brief time they were together in the prime continuity, the two of them have generated a remarkable amount of LesYay--from Hayate lovingly cradling Eins' face in her hands to Eins telling her she is "the happiest magical tome in the world" while performing a HeroicSacrifice to save her and the Knights. Perhaps most blatant of all is the two of them de facto ''having a child'', as Rein Zwei was [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything born from Eins' Linker Core merging with Hayate's]].

Listing all the LesYay in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' is an exercise in futility as it will involve practically [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters every]] [[PinkBishoujoGhetto character]] from the main leads to ThoseTwoGirls. If you want to save time, let's just say there are three undoubtedly straight couples - Chrono/Amy, Erio/Caro and Tohma/Lily in ''[[NanohaForce Force]]''.

** WordOfGay has also come down from the voice actresses for the two characters. Then you have official artwork like [[http://gelbooru.com/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=225191 this]] (NSFW), that looks like something straight out of the YuriGenre.
