* ''Film/InterviewWithTheVampire'' had young Creator/TomCruise, Creator/BradPitt, Creator/AntonioBanderas and Creator/ChristianSlater as the main cast. Oh, [[TheSmurfettePrinciple and]] Creator/KirstenDunst.
* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' movies have a grand total of three female main characters, and almost all the rest are played by very handsome actors.
** Considering the books gave the females even ''less'' of a role...
** Subverted in ''Film/TheHobbit'' where the prettiest of the cast is reduced by a half, mostly because nearly the rest are playing older dwarves.

* ''Theatre/LesMiserables''. Seriously, at least half the movie focuses on a whole band of ridiculously attractive young men in a revolutionary fervor and singing gorgeously. And the older guys are played by Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Sacha Baron Cohen.

* ''Film/StopLoss'''s three leads are Creator/RyanPhillippe, Creator/ChanningTatum and Creator/JosephGordonLevitt. And they're [[GoodLookingPrivates soldiers in uniform too]]. As with many a Channing Tatum movie, there's a colossal ton of HoYay in there too.

* ''Series/BandOfBrothers'' has LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, most of which are played by attractive young men (not restricted to just-starting-out Creator/DamianLewis, Creator/MichaelFassbender, Creator/TomHardy, Creator/JamesMcAvoy etc.). The likes of Creator/RossMcCall (Liebgott), Creator/EionBailey (Webster), Creator/ScottGrimes (Malarkey) and Creator/JamesMadio (Perconte) have huge female followings. [[GoodLookingPrivates The uniform might have something to do with it]]. The series has a huge PeripheryDemographic of female fans precisely for this reason.
* ''{{Series/Shadowhunters}}'' may have the prettiest cast of any UrbanFantasy series. Jace, Alec, Simon, Raphael, and Luke are all good-looking young men in good shape. Hodge is given AdaptationalAttractiveness to become a PrettyBoy too. Of course the other side of the spectrum isn't left out either - since Clary and Isabelle are both quite pretty too.
* ''{{Series/Charmed}}'' didn't have this in the main cast but rather in the guest stars. It was noted that most of the recurring love interests for the sisters were lantern-jawed, chiselled {{Hunk}}s and {{Pretty Boy}}s. Julian [=McMahon=] became a 2000s sex symbol because of his role on the show and later ''Series/NipTuck''.



* Most of the {{Wrestling/WWE}} roster, to the point that quite a few wrestlers have even made their pretty looks a part of their gimmick, or given themself a nickname to reflect that [[MrFanservice they're a part of this trope]]. Examples include "Prince Pretty" Tyler Breeze, "The Shaman of Sexy" John Morrison, and of course "Dashing" Cody Rhodes.

Scotty 2 Hotty jokes that towards the end of his term in WWE, he asked if he could drop the "2 Hotty" part of his ring name, in contrast to some of the more attractive guys on the roster.
* Wrestling/CelticChampionshipWrestling of Ireland has a startling collection of good looking young guys on their roster. The likes of Ricky Combat, Bingo Ballance, The Wood Brothers, DOC, Jody Fleisch, Xavier Burns and many others all provide their own form of {{Fanservice}}. Though they do have prominent {{Ms Fanservice}}s in the form of Katey Harvey, Kazza, Siren and Marie.

* ''YoJinBo'', being a RomanceGame, is all about the bishounen. The only girl who appears onscreen besides yourself is Hatsuhime (who kinda is still you, in a way). A couple of maids may speak during the endings, [[HeWhoMustNotBeSeen but they never get to be in the picture]].

* ''Anime/{{tsuritama}}'' is an extremely rare slice-of-life example where every male character have their own unique quirkiness.
* ''Manga/DontenNiWarau'', wherein even the army {{mooks}} are mostly {{Bishonen}}. Basically, if you have as much as two words to contribute to whatever's happening, you will be pretty.

* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' focuses on male figure skating, and a good chunk of the cast is made up of good-looking young men as a result.

* ''Manga/InuYasha'' has this in ''spades''. [[note]]If you've been reading [[DrinkingGame/TVTropesWiki The TV Tropes Wiki Drinking Game]], take a swig.[[/note]] If the character is central to the plot and male, he will be Bishonen.

* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'', the {{Capcom}} [[FollowTheLeader riv]][[DuelingGames al]] to {{Koei}}'s ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' and ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'', is loaded with lots of male characters, who are things for female players to ogle at. [[Characters.SengokuBasara Most of its characters]] satisfy some kind of fetish, but it's usually arguable that guys like Date Masamune, Sanada Yukimura, Mori Motonari and Chosokabe Motochika come out on top of the popularity list.

It's telling that they are really gunning for this trope moreso than Koei, like how they turn [[RatedMForManly the usually macho, gung-ho Shibata Katsuie]] into a rather mopey but very pretty young man (same with Tokugawa Ieyasu, who usually got portrayed as an old man but here a clear cut young man), as well as how in ''Yukimura-Den'' installment, they eschews the notion of adding a new female character (they stuck with their rendition of Saika Magoichi, who's got a GenderFlip), when Koei usually is fairer to the X-Chromosome.

* The ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'' comic is a comic series that adheres to this. The guys weren't exactly unattractive in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' cartoon but the reboot [[AdaptationalAttractiveness made them much more prettier]]. They updated the fashion and the {{animesque}} style makes them look bishonen. Rio, Craig, Riot, and Techrat are all slim and fashionable. Eric is now an attractive, glasses wearing businessman. Even Shana's boyfriend is a cute looking BigBeautifulMan. ''Jem And The Holograms'' is female aimed so that might be a factor behind all the main males looking as they do.

* While the characters on ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' look [[OnlySixFaces identical aside from their hair and clothes]], the vast majority of ''SouthPark'' fanfiction describes its main characters as attractive pretty boys.

* ''SchoolTeacher'' has a small classroom of cute/pretty boys who are actually animals trying to become human (''tsundere'' fox, horny rabbit, hyperactive squirrel twins, and very eager-to-please puppy; the puppy thought the teacher was a parrot due to his [[RedHeadedHero red hair]] and later declares that he "will be ''sensei's wife''!"). The two exceptions to the all-male cast are [[spoiler: the sexy ''oujo-sama'' cat with full lips, long hair, and female kimono who's actually a neutered male and the woman who had a crush on his master who only appears in flashback]].
