* 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.

* In H G Wells' Time Machine, 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.

Added DiffLines:

*Unsettlingly deconstructed with Jin from ''{{Webcomic/Bastard}}''. Episode 15 reveals that he doesn't know what sex is, how it's done, or what its purpose is, despite being in high school. He has to ask classmate Kyun what porn is and doesn't understand why the question flusters her. He panics when he has his first wet dream and has to ask online to confirm what that "sticky and slippery liquid kinda thing" is. Given [[SerialKiller what his father is]] and [[AbusiveParents the nature of their relationship]], Jin has learned all about a woman's "[[OrganTheft parts]]" but has been deliberately kept in the dark by his father in regards to sexuality, likely to keep him from acting against him out of romantic or sexual passion.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Depending on which regeneration we're talking about, the Doctor comes off this way from time to time. The Classic series indulged in ShipTease at times but never, ever confirmed sexual relationships between the Doctor and his companions, which due to the Doctor's state as an immortal superbeing was thought to have limited prospects. Tom Baker claimed he made a point of always handling Sarah Jane in a slightly awkward way to give the impression that the Doctor wasn't used to touching women, and the Fourth Doctor referenced his lack of ability to tell if human women were beautiful in "City of Death" - though he still had a certain amount of {{UST}} with many girls, and made a point of showing he genuinely loved them. Peter Davison, the young and conventionally handsome Fifth Doctor, was prevented from even ''touching'' his female companions in case the audience thought "hanky-panky" was going on in the TARDIS. Eventually, 1980s {{Fanon}} insisted the Doctor was Chaste, despite being confirmed a grandfather, with contrived explanations even appearing in print about how this may be (such as Time Lords being born on 'genetic looms' due to their race's {{asexuality}}). In the Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures novel ''Death and Diplomacy'', the Seventh Doctor [[LampshadeHanging aknowledges the discrepancy]], admitting that failing to notice or completely misunderstanding sexual overtures [[CelibateHero just makes his life simpler]]. The New series Doctors are generally a lot more sexual, and the Ninth Doctor makes a point of getting offended when Rose implies he might never have had sex.

Eleven shows something of a girls-are-icky kissing-is-gross reaction to physical affection between Amy and Rory, even on their honeymoon, but that doesn't stop him from kissing River Song!

** As of the latest of the anime series, the list of girls to have shown canon feelings for him include [[FieryRedhead Misty]], [[LoveTriangle Melody]], [[PlayingWithFire Macey]], [[PsychicPowers Anabel]], [[BirdsOfAFeather Angie]], and [[ChildhoodFriends Serena]]. To say nothing of the ''[[InterspeciesRomance Pokémon]]'' (like [[ClingyJealousGirl Chikorita]], [[OlympusMons Latias]], Smoochum, Aipom, [[HoYay Oshawott]] and ''maybe'' [[MacguffinGirl Meloetta]]) who have developed crushes on him. Although, as of the Unova League, he does seem to have picked up on the concept of HoYay, at least when ''he's'' in [[HotSpringsEpisode the compromising situation]]...

[[spoiler: Phineas developed a crush on Isabella when they were in high school, but is STILL oblivious to her feelings and hasn't even tried to ask her out because he thinks he's too firmly situated in the friend zone.

* Eren Yeager from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' is fairly oblivious to anything involving women. He considers his adopted sister Mikasa's [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend protective]] behavior annoying, shrugs off Annie's multiple teasing comments, and states he considered [[ChickMagnet Dude Magnet]] Krista to be kind of "creepy". His utter lack of interest in women is often played up in official parodies, often portraying him as the clueless "Archie" to Mikasa and Annie as his BettyAndVeronica.

* Manga/{{Azumi}} was so naive as a young teen she didn't even know what the differences between boys and girls were, having been raised in complete isolation from the outside world amidst a group of boys. She later grows out of her naivety, but every man she falls in love with is killed, usually right in front of her.
