** Zapp Brannigan has flirted with and slept with Leela and Amy and enjoyed getting Snu-Snu from several Amazonian women, yet he apparently went on a date with Richard Nixon's Head in "The Thief Of Baghead". He is also not ashamed to show nudity in front of other men such as Kif. Zapp does not even cover himself in front of other men whenever he is naked and some of the orders he gives out to Kif have some HoYay in them.

He seemed pretty comfortable with the idea of sleeping with [[SweetPollyOliver "Lee Lemon"]] before finding out "he" was really Leela in disguise. He is also not ashamed to show nudity in front of other men such as Kif.

* SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}. Plenty of attraction to girls, but also flirts with guys constantly, and his canon attraction with Comicbook/{{Cable}}. He has the "faintly hysterical overreaction to being called gay" thing down pretty well, too, and the less said about the crossdressing the better. Cable himself comes from a gender-ambiguous future and so may not recognize present-day sexual norms anyway, and people frequently comment on his [[OddCouple unlikely]] affection for Deadpool. WordOfGod described Deadpool as 'omnisexual', making the 'ambiguously' part somewhat less ambiguous.

** The relationship between Charles Xavier and [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}} Erik Lehnsherr]] is at least as strong and complicated as those they have with romantic female partners. Its very easy to interpret them as being in love with each other, which would make them sort of bi.

* ''Disney/TheLionKing'': Timon and Pumbaa. While they are HeterosexualLifePartners, there is so much blatant HoYay that went on between them. However, they do have crushes on several girls throughout the series. Pumbaa fits this trope more as he tried to kiss Timon in the House of Mouse in the Valentines day special.

** Similarly, Camilla from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates Fates]]'' can only marry men. However, she's ''incredibly'' possessive of her retainers (both of whom are female), particularly Selena. Her rather flirty-sounding dialogue with Corrin is also unchanged regardless of whether you're playing as male or female.

* Reina from ''Literature/SoundEuphonium'' explicitly states she has a [[TeacherStudentRomance crush on her male teacher]] but that does nothing for the large amount of HomoeroticSubtext between her and Kumiko. Episode 11 has a scene that [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything reeks]] of a silly high school love confession where [[spoiler:Reina asks if Kumiko will ever leave her. Kumiko states that she won't and that Reina can kill her if she does. Reina agrees and then Kumiko puts her hand on Reina's hand that was on her cheek, and repeats a line Reina told her several episodes earlier --"it's a confession of love, after all". This makes Reina ''very'' happy]]. All throughout the scene their faces were literally centimeters apart.

She also has some innuendo with Lilah in her first ''Series/{{Angel}}'' arc (it's been said in interviews that this was so strong in early takes that the actresses were ordered to tone it down). Her having a crush on Buffy is seemingly confirmed by [[ItMakesSenseInContext the First as the Mayor]] in season 7, and her actress, Eliza Dushku, said that she always thought that Faith definitely had something for Buffy. In season 8 Faith herself denies this, but it isn't like this would be the first time Faith has lied about something personal, and the very same arc had some heavy-handed lesbian innuendo between Faith and Gigi.
