* The grown up Godzilla jr. has this trope knocked in ''Fanfic/TheBridge''. While he is a benign soul and his new unicorn form [[TallDarkAndHandsome is alicorn size, dark; and not bad looking]], he's completely clueless about romance. When a guardsmare named Blade Dancer starts flirting with him, his reaction is an odd mixture of confusion, shyness; and being creeped out.
-->'''Author in response to being asked why:''' The only prolonged female contact he's had is his human caretakers during his youth, his cousin Raiga; and a moth the size of two 747s. He hasn't exactly been acquainted with with the wide, scary world of dating

* A use of the concept is found in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', where despite his obvious one-sided crush on Sakura, Naruto completely misses Hinata's obvious crush on ''him''. This seems to be a matter of personality, as the [[HotBlooded loud and exuberant]] Naruto was annoyingly persistent in his pursuit of Sakura in Part I, while Hinata was so [[ShrinkingViolet painfully shy]] she could barely talk to him [[CharacterDevelopment until Part II]]. It is revealed in ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' that Naruto doesn't understand the concept of [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove romantic love]], and thereby can't tell the difference between TheFourLoves: he thought Hinata's love for him was the same as his love for ramen. [[LovingAShadow His pursuit of Sakura was more about his rivalry with Sasuke than any actual romantic feelings for her]]--which was implied way back in [[http://www.mangapanda.com/naruto/3/17 Chapter 3]]. Considering the fact that Naruto never had the unconditional affection that most people had with their families due to being both an orphan and the village pariah for most of his childhood, [[FridgeBrilliance his inability to truly understand romantic love actually makes a lot of sense]]. Naruto does finally understand what romantic love actually means during ''The Last'', where [[spoiler:[[LoveRevelationEpiphany it helps him realize both Hinata's feelings for him and the true nature of his own for her]], which leads to them ''finally'' becoming an OfficialCouple]].

*** Pre FaceHeelTurn at least. But Sasuke would be more likely this than CelibateHero. The fact that one of his goals was to revive his clan and how he just tells every girl to get lost says much. Many fans even joke about how Sasuke doesn't know how babies are made.
* Pre-[[Anime/DragonBallZ DBZ]] Son Goku from ''Manga/DragonBall''. He only agreed to marry Chi-Chi because he thought "marriage" was a type of food. (Their wedding night must have been an exercise in patience for Chi-Chi...) He must have learned something from it, considering the kids they had.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/UQHolder'': Touta Konoe, Negi Springfield's grandson, also seems to be mostly oblivious to sexuality and romance. A later chapter revealed that, due to various circumstances like [[YoungerThanTheyLook his age]], he had no idea what sex even was, and thought that the phrase "Going all the way" meant a kiss. After that revelation, he was given TheTalk.

** It's been revealed that his devotion to his ex-girlfriend [[ToyShip from age]] ''[[ToyShip 6]]'' and his FailureKnight status to her, combined with her ingraining on him that only a self-sufficient male should pursue romance, has killed his libido. So it's a cross between this and CelibateHero.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': Deconstructed with Shinji. Asuka flirted with him several times (suggesting him sleeping in her bed in a very veiled way, pushing her breasts against his face, goading him to kiss her...), but even though [[HeroesWantRedheads he was attracted by her]], he was too shy and [[ObliviousToLove oblivious]] to recognize her (admittedly clumsy) seduction attempts for what they were, or he mistook them for cruel teasing. Hence, Asuka mistook his confusion and obliviousness for indifference or rejection and her fragile self-esteem took a severe blow each time that she flirted with him, making her feeling worthless and more unstable. Cue she falling completely apart during her MindRape.

** The variation appears in later games; in ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'', Akihiko hits it off with kung-fu enthusiast [[{{VideoGame/Persona 4}} Chie]], and for a humorous event in ''{{VideoGame/Persona Q}}'', in a conversation about finding "the one," you can have the P3 protagonist tell him to "find a buff girl," in which Akihiko reacts enthusiastically. These basically imply that the ''only'' women he takes interest in are ones who are as athletic or devoted to fighting as he.

* While not actually ''physically'' chaste, sleeping with six different women throughout the storyline, [[{{Utawarerumono}} Hakuoro]] somehow fails to realize they all love him until the very end. Oh, and the bunny princess also has a thing for him. It's most obvious with Karura, Yuzuha and Eruruw. And Urtoriy. Doriy and Guraa also express some interest, but they're more into Oboro. Seriously, that's at least nine and he only expresses vague awareness of two or three tops before the story ends.
