* ''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.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* 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]].

* Since it's by [[Creator/KeikoTakemiya the woman]] who practically invented {{Yaoi}}, ''Manga/TowardTheTerra'' already had a fair share of pretty boys in manga form. Then someone decided to adapt it into an anime and put Nobuteru Yūki (aka, the man responsible for the bishonen overload in ''VisionOfEscaflowne'') in charge of the character designs. The end result is that there are simply no ugly men in this series. At all.

* While ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' games have the option of playing a female and thus providing a list of eligible bachelors, some of the more recent ones have started slipping in greater amounts of this into the bachelor selection to point where it's a BaseBreaker amongst fans (as older games had handsome but more realistically "normal" rural men). ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonTreeOfTranquility'' even includes a guy [[DudeLooksLikeALady feminine]] you can woo him [[CampStraight with flowers]]. Not surprising, as one of the chief complaints of female players was that the roster of wives were significantly better looking and interesting than the grooms. The spinoff ''VideoGame/RuneFactory'' and its sequels amps this up: even the main character, who is male, can be considered cuter than one or two of the bachelorettes.

* ''Manga/HunterXHunter''. There's so few women per story arc that you can count them on one hand.
** That said, there tends to be a wide variety of character types with only a handful of bishonen among them, and sometimes [[DudeLooksLikeALady it's really hard]] [[AmbiguousGender to tell]] [[ViewerGenderConfusion which characters are which gender.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/{{K}}'' is about a magic system where seven powerful Kings [[SuperEmpowering form Clans of followers with superpowers]]. With the exception of three beautiful ''girls'', they're all pretty boys. [[EnsembleCast They're good]] with appealing to a variety of tastes, too - younger, older, [[RedOniBlueOni elegant, rough]], nerdy, action-oriented... take your pick!

* One of the main features of the ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'', where most of the actors [[HeroicBuild look like superheroes in real life]], with a handful of less-built [[PrettyBoy pretty boys]]. [[AndZoidberg And Robert Downey Jr.]] (though that's [[SilverFox not a bad thing]]). It especially sticks out since TheSmurfettePrinciple is in full effect.
