* In H G Wells' Literature/TimeMachine, the hero saves and bonds with Weena, a member of the obviously quite promiscuous and beautiful Eloi race, and she follows him around. He finds her attractive and charming, but, as he says when narrating his story, "I didn't come here to find a wife" and that's it. He sleeps with her, completely innocently. He is not even sure if she is male or female.
* From the ''TheSquiresTales'' series by Gerald Morris, both Sir Dinadan and Beaufils. Galahad reads more as a deconstruction.

* This is Sonic's general attitude. Particularly towards [[MadLove self-appointed girlfriend]] Amy Rose. Awkward because he's [[SaveThePrincess saved her]] a few times in the past because he thinks of her as a good friend, but she takes this as evidence that he loves her, and also tries to make moves when she saves him.
** Sonic may actually be asexual; before ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' (and even afterwards) Sega actually made a clear point about Sonic having no interest in girlfriends, and, amusingly, didn't think to mention the "other option." But when Sega described Sonic as "footloose and fancy free" they could have been referring to his WalkingTheEarth lifestyle, his laid-back nature, his "lack of interest" or the latter.
** It's different in the Archie comics though, where he gets involved in a LoveDodecahedron and something of an UnwantedHarem, DependingOnTheWriter. (a certain writer has a tendency to play these tropes up until others have to be brought in for damage control)

* This Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog plays with this trope, depending on the medium: generally every male protagonist in the game series is chaste, while every appearance they make outside the games is usually shown in a romantic context. That said, this trope is Sonic's general attitude. Particularly attitude towards [[MadLove self-appointed girlfriend]] Amy Rose. Awkward Rose]] in every single medium. Sonic has no romantic interest in her at all, but because he's [[SaveThePrincess saved her]] a few times in the past because he thinks of her as a good friend, but past, she takes this as evidence that he loves her, and also her. She tries to make moves on him almost constantly, ''especially'' when she saves him.

him. In the cartoon WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM, and the [[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog comic series loosely based on it,]] Sonic may actually be asexual; before ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' (and even afterwards) Sega actually made a clear point about Sonic having no interest in girlfriends, and, amusingly, didn't think is [[OfficialCouple officially coupled]] with Princess Sally Acorn. (Thanks to mention AdaptationDecay, the "other option." But when Sega described Sonic as "footloose and fancy free" they could have been referring to his WalkingTheEarth lifestyle, his laid-back nature, his "lack of interest" or the latter.

comic has a tendency to play these tropes up until others have [[OutOfCharacterMoment rewrite the canonical romance]] to be brought in for damage control)make [[LoveDodecahedron highly complicated romance plots.]] What makes this writing [[{{Squick}} extremely awkward,]] is the fact that when Sally proposes that she and Sonic become a RulingCouple, ''[[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sonic_is_sallys_consort.jpg she confirmed that Sonic is her]]'' ''[[HotConsort consort,]]'' thus making every one of those romances [[YourCheatingHeart adultery!]])

** Lance-Constable Carrot in the novel ''Discworld/GuardsGuards!'' never got TheTalk, because his dwarf foster-parents think of puberty as happening in one's fifties. Amongst other things, his innocence leads to him mishearing "bawdy house" as "boarding house" and taking lodgings in Ankh-Morpork's most popular brothel without noticing anything odd, even though his letters home make it clear one of the girls is very flagrantly propositioning him. In his next appearance (''Discworld/MenAtArms'') he meets Angua, falls in love, and it's stated he always knew the "mechanics", even if he didn't see how they applied to him, so that meant an end to conversations like this (note that Mrs. Palm is head of the "Seamstresses'" Guild):

** Galahad is given a CaptainErsatz in ''Literature/TheElenium'' with Berit, a novice knight whose chastity makes him a CluelessChickMagnet. The other knights, both amused and slightly annoyed by the attention he gets, contrive to get him laid in the ''Tamuli''.

** Of course how often do we actually see Goku kiss his wife? sure he may have learnt where babies come from (although he probably doesn't understand too many of the mechanics of it beyond the obvious) but he never gives the appearance of having a normal male sex drive either.

* Freddy in the [[ScoobyDooMysteryInc newest Scooby Doo series]] has become this trope. Ironically enough, the series cranks the historic ShipTease UpToEleven but he remains oblivious to all of Daphne's advances due to his obsession with solving mysteries and planting traps.

** Also he is aware [[spoiler:(at least after the timeskip)]] that Hancock is in love with him and wants to marry him, he just isn't interested. Which is pretty impressive, since Hancock is considered one of the most beautiful women alive.

Compare InnocentFanserviceGirl and MsFanservice. To double on the appeal, Chaste Heroes often double as {{Chick Magnet}}s. See also CluelessChickMagnet. If a seeming ChasteHero turns out to be far more interested in sex than they appear, you've just met the CovertPervert.

** Hayate isn't exactly a ChasteHero; he simply doesn't see his 13 years old Mistress and other girls of her age who are in love with him as a potential love interest because he considers them kids and he Definitely isn't a Lolicon. The situation changes when he is dealing with girls of his own age like Hinagiku, Ayumu or Maria. Probably best exemplified when Hina tries to figure out whether he likes anyone.

** In the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' series, it's questionable on how much he cares for Ciel on the "Love" scale as well (despite the latter being very obviously in love with him by the end of the series) - whether he's a ChasteHero, a CelibateHero, or simply too [[TheStoic stoic]] to say anything out loud is left entirely [[ShipTease ambiguous]].

* Cartman of ''SouthPark'' is the anti-hero version of this trope. He seems to be more focused on making lives of others miserable and other things than romance.
