** Randal Graves lampshades the HoYay between Sam and Frodo in ''ClerksII'' when he points out the "very gay look" that Sam gives Frodo in the scene where he wakes up from his coma with Pippin and Merry. He then goes on to make fun of them so cruelly that it causes a ''Rings'' fanboy customer to throw up.

** The epilogue also has this gem, where Bilbo asks Sam when he is going to move in and join him, and Sam just looks at him awkwardly. Then, when Sam hesitates, Frodo reassures him that his grandfather (with whom he lived up until then) will be close by, so he won't miss him. When Sam reveals he is going to marry a girl he met, Frodo, without skipping a beat, suggests that she can move in too. And they do.

* ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'': From a contemporary standpoint, the relationship between [[HeterosexualLifePartners Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee]] often goes way past mere friendship, or boss-subordinate.

* The gender ratio being what it is, it's easy to see lots of HoYay in ''TheSilmarillion'' as well. Ah, all the manly friendships out there...Maedhros/Fingon, Beleg/Túrin, Gil-galad/Elrond...Anything goes.

* Not to mention Pippin and Merry. Yeah, they're cousins, but IIRC Merry's wife Estella was also his cousin. Pippin also married, but that doesn't stop the fans from seeing Ho Yay. After all, the two tend to stay as close together as possible, when they are separated it's like some sort of tragedy, and after the war they not only buy a house together and stay there for as long as they can, they also left the Shire together to go off and die with the humans, leaving wives and children behind. Although it's notable that while Merry and Pippin are joined at the hip from their first second on-screen in the movies, in the books the closeness isn't apparent until later. In fact, it's actually Merry and Frodo who seem to be the bestest buds in ''Fellowship'', and if IIRC Merry even lived with Frodo for a while after Bilbo left.

** Maedhros/Fingon deserves its own special mention. They were best friends back in the good old days. When Fëanor ordered his followers to burn the stolen Teleri ships on the shores of Beleriand, Maedhros was the only one of his sons to object, basically saying "Fingon's over there! We need to go back!" and was the only one to stand aside while the ships were destroyed. Later, Maedhros is captured, and when Fingon hears of it he immediately sets out to rescue him alone, letting no one reason with him or stop him. He finds Maedhros in Angband by ''singing'' in the wilderness. (Remember, this is how OfficialCouple Beren and Luthien found each other when Beren was imprisoned in Angband.) He sees Maedhros hanging from a cliff and weeps because there doesn't seem to be a way to save him--but then Thorondor, king of the eagles, is sent by Manwë to assist him. Fingon then manages to fly up and rescue Maedhros by [[LifeOrLimbDecision cutting off his hand]] (which also parallels Beren losing a hand at the climax of their story). Afterwards, Maedhros relinquishes the title of High King in favor of Fingolfin, Fingon's father. Much later, Maedhros and Fingon form an alliance to defeat Morgoth once and for all, and [[CurbStompBattle while that ends terribly]], it's clear they remained close throughout the First Age until Fingon's death. There's even a cute moment in one of the histories where Maedhros is gifted the fabulous Dragon-helm of Dor-lomin and immediately gives it to Fingon.

** For this troper, the Crowning Moment of Ho Yay in the books is when Gollum comes sneaking up and finds Sam, asleep, with the also-asleep [[HehHehYouSaidX Frodo's head]] in his lap. As if that weren't enough, there's also plenty of PurpleProse about the fact that Sam's cradling Frodo's face. Even for the most physically demonstrative platonic friendship, that's way over the line. Heck, if Frodo had been ''dying'', face-cradling would still be a bit much.
