** 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.

* A use of the concept is found in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', where the titular hero, despite his obvious one-sided crush on Sakura, completely misses Hinata's obvious crush on ''him''. This seems to be a matter of personality, as the [[HotBlooded loud and exuberant]] Naruto is annoyingly persistent in his pursuit of Sakura, while Hinata is so [[ShrinkingViolet painfully shy]] she can barely talk to him ([[CharacterDevelopment at least until Part II]]). We find out in ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' that Naruto didn't understand the concept of romantic love: 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 genuine romantic feelings for Sakura]]--which was implied way back in [[http://www.mangapanda.com/93-3-17/naruto/chapter-3.html Chapter 3]]. Naruto eventually learns during ''The Last'', where [[LoveRevelationEpiphany he finally realizes Hinata's feelings for him and the true nature of his own for her]], which leads to them ''finally'' becoming an OfficialCouple.

* 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.

* ''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!

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, 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!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").
