** The {{Bishonen}} archetype in {{Shojo}} is parodied quite a few times on cover flaps of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' (more often than not with Roy as the target) and through Mei Chan's daydreams about Ed, and then Al, as [[KnightInShiningArmour knights in shiny armours]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/OdinSphere'' gives us this in the form of Prince Cornelius of Titania, the Shadow Knight Oswald, and Prince Ingway of Valentine. All three young men's physical features ([[spoiler: well, in Cornelius and Ingway's human forms, anyway]]) fit the archetypes of handsome princes and brave knights with slender yet muscular builds. In Ingway's case, his outfit even runs into MrFanservice territory.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', there are handsome guys galore. Saizo, Sasuke, Kamanosuke, Hanzo, young Seikai, and grown-up Benmaru are all very pretty, but the inarguable winner is Rokuro, who is so good-looking he gets called things like "the handsome page" "the beautiful lad" and just plain "bishonen" [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep instead of his name]] at various points. Rokuro, of course, thinks his features are very manly.

* ''Manga/SaintSeiya''. From [[http://www.mythcloth.ch/catalog/images/Saint%20Seiya_DVD_BOX_ANDROMEDA.JPG Andromeda Shun]] to [[http://www.gadgetspirit.com/pic/hkkk/virgo%201.jpg Virgo Shaka]] to [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/4b/Hades_pisces_face.jpg Pisces Aphrodite]] ([[GenderBlenderName yes, that's a guy]]), the place is a bishounen gold mine. See ViewerGenderConfusion for more details.

Added DiffLines:

* None of the main cast of ''Manga/StrawberryOneHundredPercent'', but Junpei's rivals definitely qualify:
** Okusa, a classic pretty-boy, and Junpei's middle school friend. He attempts to steal Tsukasa away from Junpei via a double date with Yui, although his attempts to charm her [[NotDistractedbytheSexy go unacknowledged,]] much to his chagrin.
** Higure, the tall, dark, handsome, world-famous pastry chef. His grandmother owns the shop where Tsukasa works. He is the main attraction whenever he returns to work from his travels abroad, and while he has fallen for Tsukasa, he understands that she would rather be with Junpei.
** Surprisingly enough, [[spoiler:Junpei has become one in the DistantFinale]].

!This is an East Asian media only trope. For pretty boys in other cultures see PrettyBoy[[note]]The difference is primarily cultural, and it is not at all uncommon for {{Animesque}} media to use this trope much in the same way as the examples here, but for convenience's sake, let's just put the Eastern ones here and the Western ones there.[[/note]].

* Ema's [[MassiveNumberedSiblings thirteen]] stepbrothers in ''Literature/BrothersConflict''. Wataru might not count yet, considering the fact that's he's only 10, but will likely grow into this trope when older.

* ''VdeoGaame/MagnaCarta: Tears of Blood'' kicks the Bishonen up to 11, making its main lead, Calintz, and his apprentice, Azel, almost entirely unrecognizable as male. Chris Arcway manages to dodge the bullet with his open button-up shirt and cocky womanizing attitude, but even Raul, the tall, masculine, goateed swordsman who appears a few times in the game, gets a touch of Bishie thanks to the artstyle (no matter how impossible it seems to be Bishie with a goatee).

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DustAnElysianTail'' [[spoiler:Dust himself very much qualifies, once he removes his hat. Justified, since in his previous life, from which he was rather hastily reincarnated, he was the twin brother of Ginger, who is rather pretty.]]

* Allen from ''Manga/DGrayMan'' definitely fits here, seeing as he's prettier than a ''lot'' of the girls in the series. [[RedHeadedHero Lavi]], [[EvilIsSexy Tyki]], and [[TallDarkAndSnarky Kanda]] fit as well.
