** Jade and Luke have quite a prominent friendship that grows over the course of the story and even has ''Jade'' of all people admitting he does care for Luke (and makes Luke give a very happy smile in response). There's an analysis of their progressing friendship [[http://tumtumtumimacatlover.tumblr.com/post/17858060412/reasons-why-i-love-jadeluke-essay here]] that hits the high points.
*** Bit where Luke notices [[https://youtu.be/bwh3y_Os_Ls?t=50 Jade's cologne in a skit]].
*** Luke is quick to go YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre towards Jade. Jade, meanwhile, is noted to care for Luke early on by those who know him.

** Jade and Guy also have a bit of a bromance going, at the very least. In one skit when the party complains about how tired, sweaty and gross they are, Guy notices that Jade actually smells really good and compliments his cologne. Jade's got at least a little respect for him, as shown when he tracks Guy down at the Aramis Spring to ask for his help, even after [[spoiler: the party has semi-disbanded, thanks to Luke]]. On a more heartwarming note, when Guy [[spoiler: remembers what [[HeroicSacrifice happened to his sister,]]]] it's Jade who's standing with him in the chapel. Oh, and then, of course, there's the skit in which Guy is tickle-tortured, which ends with Jade ''nibbling'' on him. [[note]]The nibbling was a mistranslation. In the original Japanese, it was just the onomatopoeia for Jade pushing his glasses back into place.[[/note]]

** When they go into stop the berserk Tytree in the factory, Veigue goes from being reluctant to help (since it delays rescuing Claire) to "he's like me" all worried and frantic sounding. They haven't even been properly introduced and yet...

** Not to mention Jade, Emperor Peony, and Dist.
*** Dist is openly obsessed with Jade, only avoids CampGay because his sexuality never actually comes up, and generally acts like a StalkerWithACrush. Meanwhile, Jade tries to ignore him, but they were childhood friends, and the party actually speculates that Jade likes Dist more than he lets on. The interrogation scene with Jade and Dist was particularly...[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything questionable]]. Dist also hates Peony and basically treats him like a rival love interest, which leads to the next point...
*** Peony refers to Jade as "his", and gives him privileges well above his rank and station purely because they're so close, and [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem since he's the Emperor he can do that sort of thing.]] While Jade [[TheGadfly trolls everyone]] in the game, Peony is the only one who can get Jade back just as well, or even better. Jade is TheStoic, so he doesn't show as much affection as Peony does, but he does undertake dangerous missions as Peony's most trusted adviser, which speaks volumes. And then there's a scene in Tales of Fandom 2 where [[spoiler:it looks like Peony has been assassinated, and Jade actually [[SayMyName shouts his name]]. His ''[[FirstNameBasis real]]'' [[FirstNameBasis name]].]]

* Luke learned [[AccidentalInnuendo Sonic Thrust]] from Guy. At night.
** Guy is terrified of women, and acknowledged in one sidequest to have basically raised Luke as they were growing up together. As a result, Luke depends on him emotionally to a great degree. Add to that the fact that Guy is Luke's servant and therefore technically has to follow his orders.

* Luke might as well be the resident LauncherOfAThousandShips considering how happily the fandom ships him with people. This comes hand and hand with ''a lot'' of HoYay with various characters...

*** Ion is the first person to have faith in Luke as a good person and even flat out says Luke is kind, refuting the others about how Luke has changed post ImportantHaircut. Luke is obviously very embarrassed by it, blushing quite vibrantly in response to Ion's words.

*** At Fubras, when the miasma shows up, Luke goes and clings to ''Ion'' from behind. Not Guy, but Ion. As if the frail little Fon Master can protect him. Or, alternatively, Luke is ready to grab Ion and get the hell out of there to safety. Both interpretations are valid and thought provoking.

** Despite having a massive amount of subtext with Jade, Peony ''also'' gets in on the Ho Yay train with Luke.

** Despite having a massive amount of subtext with Jade, Peony ''also'' gets in on the Ho Yay train with Luke. He pays a bit more attention to him than the rest of the group (outside of Jade) and, while all the other rappigs are named for ChildhoodFriends and people he's been close to for longer, he names a new rappig after Luke not long after he first meets him. And then there is [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-SjbMX-ZY9Js/TnY6ueu6S3I/AAAAAAAADEY/HuSVR36M3mY/s0/029.jpg this panel]] in ''Reminisces of Jade''.
