-->[[GirlsLove Girls Love Tropes]] too! [[LoveableSexManiac In fact]], [[AnythingThatMoves we all do]]....

Tropes frequently associated with the BoysLoveGenre. Also see UsefulNotes/BoysLoveNotes for characterization and relationship tropes that don't merit their own pages. Also see BaraGenre, for the equivalent genre for gay/bi men. That said, there is some crossover - some gay/bi men happen to be more into twinks or non-muscled men or want more plot, so they may seek out BL also or create "hybrid" works.
----
[[index]]
* BarbieDollAnatomy: This is more common in the less sexually explicit series, but also shows up in the full-on erotic stories, which can be confusing if you're not used to it. Yes, that glowing cone of light is meant to be a penis.
* BastardBoyfriend: Some Semes qualify as this.
** BespectacledBastardBoyfriend
* {{Bishonen}}
* UsefulNotes/BoysLoveNotes
* CastFullOfGay: For series that don't go with EveryoneIsBi.
* CastFullOfPrettyBoys
* CrazyJealousGuy: For the more possessive seme characters, although ukes are just as applicable.
* ClosetKey
* DepravedBisexual: Usually villains, although the kinkier {{seme}}s can go there.
* DepravedHomosexual: Ditto.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim
* EveryoneIsBi: Rule #1 of BL: no guy, however straight, is capable of resisting a [[EvenTheGuysWantHim sufficiently hot other guy]].
* {{Gayngst}}: also {{Angst}}, {{Wangst}}, and {{Melodrama}} in general.
* GoodEyesEvilEyes: Ukes typically have wide eyes to show their youth and innocence. Semes typically have narrow eyes to show their maturity and sophistication. Though, today this rule somewhat no longer applies.
* HoYay
* IfItsYouItsOkay: If neither CastFullOfGay nor EveryoneIsBi applies, it's likely this.
* IncompatibleOrientation - usually ''very'' temporary.
* {{Keet}}: Usually the Uke.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* MasculineFeminineGayCouple
* MrFanservice
* OneHeadTaller: Mostly Seme but some Uke are taller.
* OnlyHasSameSexAdmirers
* RapeAsBackstory
* {{Seme}}
* SexualHarassmentAndRapeTropes: Very common between the two leads, in all varieties and flavors.
* ShirtlessScene
* SingleTargetSexuality: Also good for those cases where neither CastFullOfGay nor EveryoneIsBi apply.
* StupidSexyFlanders
* {{Uke}}
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Originally only for {{uke}}s: not so much anymore.
