* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' is completely uninterested in the advances of Amy Rose, or the flirtations of Rouge the Bat. He has shown a softer side around [[DefrostingIceQueen Blaze the Cat]], though that's more because he's trying to get her to open up to friendship rather than romance. Even his interactions with [[TheScrappy the fandom's worst nightmare]], [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Princess Elise]], don't go any further than {{starboarding}}.

* Taken way, way to the extreme in the Leo Tolstoy novella ''The Kreutzer Sonata''. Not only does the protagonist kill his wife in a jealous rage, but he makes the argument that one should renounce sex in any circumstance, including marriage, and that the subsequent death of the species would mark humanity's highest moral achievement. The fact that this story is more or less an AuthorTract brings it perilously close to {{Squick}}. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voluntary_Human_Extinction_Movement People are already working on this.]]

* ComicBook/LuckyLuke, being a lonesone cowboy who keeps moving and rarely stays anywhere more time than it's required to solve a case, has absolutely no interest for women or any relationships, though unlike Tintin, the subject is aborded; in "La Fiancé de Lucky Luke" especially, Luke mentions his opinion about both marriage and love, making it clear he is, not only uninterested, but almost revulsed (to the point he almost refuses a mission that consists in escorting a large group of women, fearing they might attempt advances on him... and they do). Notably, he has a female PlatonicLifePartners with [[{{Tomboy}} Calamity Jane]].

* Creator/LeonardoDaVinci is speculated by some scholars (including Freud) to have been homosexual, but celibate. He himself wrote: "The act of procreation and anything that has any relation to it is so disgusting that human beings would soon die out if there were no pretty faces and sensuous dispositions." - which doesn't necessarily mean he wasn't engaging in it (He was arrested for [[ValuesDissonance sodomy,]] after all).

* Vash from ''{{Trigun}}'' is. Especially in the manga. He fakes being passed out in order to avoid the "favors" of prostitutes, spends an inordinate amount of his free time thinking about his dead mother figure, doesn't want any woman to see his scars and avoids any kind of romantic or sexual relationship, be it with Luida, Meryl or Jessica.

Added DiffLines:

* The Doctor in ''Series/DoctorWho'' often comes off as this, especially during the 1970s and 1980s when due to ExecutiveMeddling and the general attitude that ''Doctor Who'' was a children's show, the Doctor was never allowed to overtly romance or even express "that sort" of interest in his often young and female companions (it came to a head when 30-year-old Peter Davison became the Doctor and travelled with two sexy female companions played by actresses only a couple years younger than he). This, combined with interpretations of often-contradictory dialogue, led to the opinion by some (still held today) that the Doctor was asexual and uninterested in any sexual matters. The 2005 revival began to avert the trope by establishing that the Doctor is perfectly capable of falling in love with his companions, and even having sexual interests, though this is never addressed explicitly; finally averted fully with the arrival of River Song, who becomes the Doctor's wife and subtle references to their love life crop up.
