* Dionysus in ''Comicbook/TheWickedAndTheDivine'' is not a fighter or a lover; he's a dancer. When talking to Cass about it, he mentions that he thought she might be ace as well, somewhat to her irritation, considering it's apparently the most common pantheon-related gossip about her. In her case, the truth is [[ThreesomeSutext something else]] [[BrainsAndBondage entirely]].

** It's possible that all gems are asexual. They have NoBiolgicalSex and there are no explict references to them being into sex, however the two couples we've seen are portrayed intimate so it's hard to tell.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'''s creator Stephen Hillenburg said he [[NoHuggingNoKissing considers his characters almost asexual]] [[http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,1021976,00.html when asked if [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick were gay]]. Sponges can reproduce by budding and Stephen Hillenburg is a marine biologist, so he was probably playing on the dual meaning of the term.[[note]] Sponges can also produce sexually, explaining his parents.[[/note]] The fact that sponges can reproduce by budding was actually mentioned in one episode, and [=SpongeBob=] produced several "babies" on the spot. This was simply a throwaway joke, though.

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2005-03-28 almost half]] of greater chimerae are "nonsexual", as [[HalfHumanHybrid descendants]] of androgynous [[BizarreAlienBiology aliens]]. Ellen [[AlternateUniverse alternate's]] crush in "second life" dreams happened to be one of these. [[spoiler:Doesn't stop her from [[PuppyDogEyes pressuring]] him into sleeping with her. Some have accused Alternate Ellen of hiding behind DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale.]] Ellen herself seemed pretty disturbed about the implications when she related the story.

** For a long time it was assumed that [[DoesNotLikeMen Susan]] was asexual, but she eventually admitted she does feel attraction to men... she just views it as "hormones being hormones" and doesn't act on it.

* Herbert West from ''Film/ReAnimator'' scoffs at the sex drives of his fellow scientists ("Don't let the little head rule the big head, Dan."), and actor Jeffrey Combs explicitly describes him as asexual in an interview in the 1996 book "Shockmasters".

In RealLife, asexuals don't feel sexual attraction. Romance usually isn't a problem, and many are comfortable with cuddling and kissing to express their feelings--they may be part of a ChastityCouple.[[note]]The "romantic" part can cover the same spectrum of attraction as the sexual part (e.g. homoromantic, heteroromantic, biromantic, aromantic, etc).[[/note]] Sex doesn't have to be disgusting; it's just not something that they feel has any place in their lives. Some asexuals do have sex for any of various reasons, but it's not an essential need for them.

Many asexuals consider asexuality to be a spectrum, with [[SingleTargetSexuality "graysexuality"/"gray asexuality" and "demisexuality"]] residing somewhere between "fully" asexual and "fully" sexual. The direct opposite of ExtremeOmnisexual, and frequently a victim of the belief that GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex and SexEqualsLove. See also ChasteHero--who might be asexual--and CelibateHero, who usually ''isn't'', but doesn't date all the same. A possible cause of MarriedToTheJob.
