* ''Film/GhostBusters'': Egon Spengler is TheSpock and a bit of an eccentric, though not nearly as eccentric as either Ray Stanz or [[DeadpanSnarker Peter Venkmann.]] Yet he's the one their SassySecretary, Janine, has the hots for. Too bad Egon's [[ForScience married to science.]]

* Creator/HenryDavidThoreau: Poet, hermit, nonconformist, life-long virgin.
** Not necessarily voluntary, as he and his brother had a falling-out over a woman (whom neither ended up with.) May be more a case of SingleTargetSexuality.
* Creator/AndyWarhol was another eccentric artist who remained celibate throughout his life.
* Creator/LewisCarroll is often interpreted as this, given that he ''was'' an eccentric genius and a life-long bachelor. There's still debate as to whether he had certain...''[[PaedoHunt unsavory]]'' sexual interests, though. He sometimes took naked pictures of little girls (granted, [[ValuesDissonance this wasn't uncommon in]] UsefulNotes/VictorianBritain), and he hung around with a lot of little girls (like ten-year-old Alice Liddell, the inspiration for [[Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland that other Alice]]). But it's not certain that that behavior was due to any perversions, and even if he ''did'' have any shady urges, there's no evidence that he took his urges any further than that.

What's more, Carroll appears to have had a number of love affairs with adult women, but his family swept those under the rug.

* In WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fanfic Fanfic/AnExtendedPerformance, this is one of the reasons why [[TheAdjectivalSuperhero The Great and Powerful]] [[LargeHam Trixie]] is alone. As least if you ask ''her'' it is.

* Prosecutor [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Miles Edgeworth]] is certainly a genius in his own field and appears to be at least above-average in general intelligence. Yet he seems genuinely astonished that the ladies find him irresistible (or, in the case of people like [[AbhorrentAdmirer Oldbag]], flat-out horrified) and generally just ignores their advances, choosing to expend his energy on his work instead.

Any advances from the opposite sex he generally just ignores their advances, ignores, choosing to expend his energy on his work instead.

* Fumi Kanno in ''DevilSurvivor2''. She isn't above jokingly flirting with the protagonist, but at a whole shows little interest in love or romance.

* Sasuke from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' seems to be this, since though he plans to eventually revive his dead clan, he shows zero interest in all of the InUniverse fangirls who have been throwing themselves at his feet since he was at least '''8'''. [[This all changes by the end of the series, however, as he marries Sakura Haruno and has a daughter with her named Sarada.]]
