* Katarina in ''LightNovel/DestructionFlagOtome'' can get borderline confessions, proposals and even have pretty blatant passes made at her without having the faintest idea. Her suitors think she's way too innocent for her own good and have to protect her from each other.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'': All signs point to Barry Heterodyne having been this. Barry always ends up with "the High Priestess" in the stories and plays, "The High Priestess" being the catch-all term for whatever lost priestess, DistressedDamsel, or [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter mad scientist's beautiful but misguided assistant]] (other than Lucrezia) happened to figure in any given Heterodyne play (basically, an in-world trope). There is no indication the real Barry actually had a love life though; Klaus says at one point that having a child of Barry's turn up would be a "surprise."

* Sir Galahad, as the French chivalric addition to the Arthurian myths just about qualifies as ''OlderThanPrint'' and, as the paragon of knighthood conceived by trickery to succeed in the quest for the Holy Grail, he is the epitome and archetype of this trope. That aspect is treated with their customary irreverence by Monty Python in ''MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail''.

** Although that scene could just as easily be taken as him understanding perfectly well and jokingly working his way out of it/siding with Alexis, making it clear he was in it for the duel - [[ChallengeSeeker "I never turn down a challenge"]] - and not the bet. Which would still leave it as an example of this trope.

* ''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 Adventures novel ''The Dying Days'' breaks from tradition by having companion Bernice Summerfield initiate a sexual encounter with the Eighth Doctor (debated for nearly 20 years, the fact they had sex was finally confirmed in "Benny's Story", a Big Finish audio drama). The New series Doctors are generally a lot more sexual (though this is never depicted on screen), 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, a character who later confirms a sexual relationship existed (justified by the fact the two eventually marry). The relationship between Clara Oswald and both the young-looking Eleventh and older-looking Twelfth Doctor was a love affair, but there was no indication of it ever progressing into anything sexual; that didn't stop (thanks to the chemistry between the actors) intense UST being noticed throughout (with notable examples being "The Day of the Doctor", "The Time of the Doctor", "Listen", "Mummy on the Orient Express", "Last Christmas", "Under the Lake" and "The Girl Who Died").

** Oda said that he didn't want to focus on romance during the series, since the characters are in love with '''adventure'''.

** Chopper is an interesting case. He's quoted as saying he does not feel physical attraction to humans. Nami trusts him enough that she permits him to see her naked in the shower in episode 574.

* Unlike his canon self, Ash in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' becomes a bit of a subversion, partly because [[AgeLift he's aged up to 15 years old]] and thus old enough to notice the physical appeal of his female companions, but he tries not to show it. A sidestory has him go on a swimsuit-shopping spree with Misty, and he lets slip that she actually looks good.
