** For Five through Seven, it was due to WordOfGod. Producer John Nathan Turner was famous for saying that "There is no hanky panky aboard the TARDIS". To stress this, he also went as far as to forbid Peter Davison and his female co-stars from any physical contact.

* Temple Grandin. At 69 years old she still hasn't had romance or sex (and adamantly refused to let the makers of the film about her, which has an entry on tvtropes, put romance in it) and wears cowgirl shirts even when not in Colorado where she lives and works in the cattle industry; in spite of being born to an upper class family in Massachusetts.

* L from ''Manga/DeathNote'' appears to be this. He avoids thinking about anything other than detective work, which honestly seems to be only thing he's interested in. He's partly based on Literature/SherlockHolmes, which might explain this.

He's partly based on Literature/SherlockHolmes, which might explain this. Also played straight with [[spoiler: his successor]] Near. Possibly Mello, too, who although he licks chocolate bars in a provocative manner and dresses in revealing leather, [[IgnoreTheFanservice is never seen snuggling up with girls (like the other Mafia members do), and ignores Halle's attempts to seduce him]].

* In ''Film/FlashGordon'', Professor Zarkov, ''Half''-MadScientist is the ''only'' named character in the entire movie who doesn't express interest in anything romantic or sexual at any point. This especially noticeable given that everyone around him is ''incredibly lustful'', and even TheHero is NotSoAboveItAll.
** This may be justified InUniverse. While his memories are being drained, one of the scenes is his beloved wife drowning in a pool accident and him mourning her. Watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5e-V1YV3mLI#t=1m0s here]].

** Sherlock in ''Series/{{Elementary}}'' (the [[DuelingWorks American show]]), on the other hand, has lots of sex. It's ([[GenderFlip Joan]]) ''Watson'' who isn't getting any. A fact regarding which [[{{Jerkass}} Sherlock]] is entirely too happy to {{troll}} her.



* This was essentially Gil Grissom for the first few seasons of ''Series/{{CSI}}''; he did make a few remarks to Sara that ship fans now adore, but he really didn't seem interested in romance at all up until it was revealed he was with Sara in the season 6 finale. We don't know the exact time they became an item, but we know it wasn't the entire series.

* For a value of "genius" that includes "CrazyAwesome schemer," the Joker in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. He's too focused on his schemes to care that his minion is throwing herself at him.

Disturbingly, this series includes probably one of the most brutal (halfway realistic) depictions of DomesticAbuse ever put to western animation.

** However, that may be changing. As Amy spends more time with Penny and Bernadette, she does begin presenting the desire for more intimacy in her relationship and it's implied some of her celibacy at least was from restraint. With Sheldon though, it's just how he always was. However, when Penny and Leonard asked him, if he would ever become intimate with Amy like that, he paused to think about it before mentioning it is a possibility, showing CharacterDevelopment on his part. [[spoiler: Sheldon and Amy do finally engage in coitus a few episodes after they get back together.]]
