* ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'''s Minto was clearly into Zakuro, but she was more BiTheWay and also showed attraction to a couple of guys. When making ''Mew Mew Power'', the translators for 4KidsEntertainment realized that there was no way they could write around the lesbian subtext between the two characters, and apparently decided that having [[DubNameChange Corina]] be gay would raise fewer eyebrows than having her be bisexual. So while they [[HideYourLesbians toned down Corina's romantic feelings toward Renee where they could]], they excised any hint that she might have feelings for anyone ''else'', most notably in a scene where the Mew Mews were imagining their ideal man; Mint's imaginary boyfriend was replaced with an image of Renee.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Xaro Xhoan Daxos, a Qartheen merchant prince from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' is gay. Despite claiming to be in love with Daenerys and proposing several times to her, she can see right through him. The TV series made him straight, [[RaceLift black]], and a widower. It also appears that aspects of his character from the books was transferred to the minor character the Spice King. This was also not a case of HideYourLesbians since the series has several other clearly gay characters (including making a relationship only hinted at in the books explicit).
** In the books, Daenerys briefly engages in a physical relationship with her handmaidens. Now YMMV as to whether this makes Dany bisexual or if this was just intended as sublimation for the relationship she felt she couldn't have with Daario Naharis, but either way these scenes were excised from the show, leaving Dany entirely heterosexual.
** In the books, Asha Greyjoy is straight. In the show, her counterpart Yara Greyjoy has sex with a female prostitute.
** The Tyrells are much more liberal about sex and homosexuality in the show. For instance, in addition to playing TheVamp rather than the PrincessClassic, Margaery offers to let Loras help consummate her marriage, implies she's experimented widely herself, and strolls right into her brother's chambers during one of his trysts, none of which is even implied in the novels. Likewise, Olenna declares openly that Highgarden doesn't view "a discrete bit of buggery" as a scandal and even teases Tywin that he might just be ArmoredClosetGay. In the books, the Reach is the heartland of both chivalry and the Faith, both of which put a premium on chastity and heterosexuality.
** In the books, Ramsay shows no interest in a consensual relationship, preferring to rape and torture with abandon. In the show, he consensually attracts women who also participate in his sadism until he tires of them, and the only person he explicitly rapes is Sansa Stark.
** The show entirely side-steps the (unconfirmed) hints from the novels that Brynden Tully might be gay or asexual.
