* Masayoshi does this to the protagonist Junichi in ''AmagamiSS''. Interestingly for a female variation, Kaoru does this as well whether she's the love interest of the arc or not.

* ''OtakuNoMusumeSan'''s titular otaku father has the added issue of his foil being a lolicon. The friend's admirer, who is totally oblivious to his taste, assumes that since he's clearly not attracted to young ''women'', he might just be gay.

* Possible subversion in ''EienNoAselia''. Kouin comes across as rather perverted and isn't as pretty as Yuuto... but he's also more intelligent, competent and even stronger than he is. He just lacks charisma.

* ''[[VisualNovel/SteinsGate Steins;Gate]]'' has Daru, an {{otaku}} LovableSexManiac and the worst guy Okabe could possibly get dating advice from.
-->'''Daru:''' Excuse me, have you considered giving the wisdom between these pages a try?
-->'''Okabe:''' That's a [[HGame hentai game]] strategy guide, jackass!

* Suginami in both ''DaCapo'' and ''VisualNovel/DaCapoII''. Despite the large gap of years separating the two series, there will always be a Suginami, and he will always be there to serve as the protagonists' foil.

* Tadashi Teruya from ''ElevenEyes'', Kakeru's best friend (somehow) and constant subject of derision by Shiori. Curiously, in ''Story of another side'', he actually gets a chance to show that he's more than just the ButtMonkey.

* ''Manga/AkameGaKill'' isn't a harem series, but it does play the trope straight with Lubboc. He's a LovableSexManiac, but most of the women on his team find his antics annoying. By contrast, [[TheHero Tatsumi]] seems to just [[ChickMagnet naturally attract female attention.]] He ''does'' have a LoveInterest of his own, Najenda, the leader of their entire group in fact, but she's not really considering a relationship until after their war is over. [[spoiler: He ends up dying anyway, so nothing ever comes from it sadly.]]
