'''Note:''' Only include someone if they are explicitly asexual, not assumed to be due to lack of shown attention. Also remember that while they overlap frequently in fiction, asexuality and having NoSocialSkills are not the same thing. No {{Fanon}}, please.

'''Note:''' '''[[AC:Note:]]''' Only include someone if they are explicitly ''explicitly'' asexual. (They don't have to use the ''word'' asexual, not assumed but there needs to be due a line saying something to lack of shown attention.that effect.) All other examples belong at AmbiguouslyAsexual.

-->''All emotions, and that one [love] particularly, were abhorrent to his cold, precise but admirably balanced mind. He was, I take it, the most perfect reasoning and observing machine that the world has seen, but as a lover he would have placed himself in a false position.''



* The eponymous heroine of Creator/ElizabethMoon's ''Literature/TheDeedOfPaksenarrion'' trilogy receives several propositions from fellow soldiers in her mercenary company, but turns them all down, explaining that she's never been interested in sex. [[ChekhovsGun Near the end of the book]], this plays a part when she [[spoiler: [[HeroicSacrifice allows herself to be raped and tortured]]]] in order to buy the freedom of the rightful king. [[spoiler: The rape fails to have any effect on her psyche, becoming just another form of pain she has to endure.]] The fallout from that incident turns into a CrowningMomentOfAwesome as her loyalty is rewarded.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Varys claims to have been asexual even before [[EunuchsAreEvil he got castrated]]. He certainly has no interest at present, as he abhors what desire can lead to because so many people lust for power that is has lead to a huge civil war, although it may be his personal rationalization after the fact. It's also worth noting that Varys was a young child at the time of his castration.

** Has some UnfortunateImplications, seeing as they thereby seem to equal losing your sexual desire to losing your humanity, as if having no sexual desire would make one inhuman.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'':
** According to WordOfGod, the Crystal Gems have NoBiologicalSex (though besides [[HalfHumanHybrid Steven]], all the gems seen so have had been female in form and personality), and [[ImmortalProcreationClause normally don't reproduce at all]] (with what Rose Quartz did to produce Steven being highly unusual). This makes sense, since they're living crystals, though they can still form romantic relationships among themselves.
** [[AfroAsskicker Garnet]] has no desire to ever be in a romantic relationship. Which is understandable, given that [[spoiler:her component gems are in a very committed relationship with each other, and "three's a crowd".]]

* ''Film/TheLivingWake'': Although he never comments on it himself, Mills, according to his best friend K. Roth, "abhors sex," and unlike K. Roth, expresses absolutely zero interest in sex or even romance. (Unless his TragicBromance with K. Roth counts.) While Mills' obvious discomfort with K. Roth having sex with a prostitute while Mills is still standing ''right there'' is understandable and would be a reasonable reaction from ''anyone'' of any orientation, the fact that he reacts to nudity in general in the same way one might react to watching paint dry does lend credence to the idea. And if anyone would know what Mills' "deal" is, [[HeterosexualLifePartners it's K. Roth]].
