* In ''Manga/MonthlyGirlsNozakiKun'', Mikoshiba and Kashima both have a lot of fans, though Mikoshiba gets embarrassed if he tries flirting back while Kashima is so popular with girls that she seduces everyone around her with superficial charm. Also Suzuki, the male lead in Nozaki's manga, is a stereotypical shoujo male protagonist who of course has all the girls at school fighting over him (even though he only has eyes for female protagonist Mamiko).

* In ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'':
** Several popular players have their own fanclubs; some of those are Echizen (though Tomoka and Sakuno are the only fangirls seen often), Oishi (in the anime, and much to his discomfort), Keigo Atobe and Hiroshi Wakato from Jyousei Shonan (who also *adores* the attention from the ladies).
** In one of the fanbooks, Fuji is said to be popular with the girls of his class. Plus there's his young admirer Kurumi Ijuin from the anime.

* Keima from ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' puts a bit of a unique twist on it. First, he's actually highly unpopular. Second, he wants girls to leave him alone. Third, he's an {{Invoked|Trope}} ChickMagnet because if he doesn't do it his head will be cut off. Therefore, he has to use tricks from romance games in order to quickly win over girls to free them from spirits possessing them. They are, in short, [[LovingAShadow loving only what he wants them to see]] though rarely outright lying in the process. That said, it's hinted that a handful of girls would like him anyway since even if he's a nerd, he still has a reputation for mental strength and nonconformity.

* [[HotTeacher Maity]] of ''Manga/LovelyComplex'' attracts fangirls at Koizumi's school (with Koizumi being one of them) who blush and fawn over his unbuttoned shirt and good looks while releasing heart marks.



* The tenants in ''Manga/TheWallflower'', with varying levels of embracement and sympathy between them. Kyohei, who is poor, is sympathetic since he has to leave most of his jobs due to sexual harassment ([[EvenTheGuysWantHim even male bosses, and his headmaster at school try to come on to him]]). Ranmaru is the exact opposite, embracing the role fully to his own advantage.

* Negi Springfield's grandson Touta in ''{{Negima}}'''s StealthSequel ''Manga/UQHolder'' continues the family tradition with at least 4 girls and 1 non-gendered member in his harem by chapter 97. The only reason it's not higher is because ''UQ Holder'' started off with a much smaller cast than ''Negima''.

* Duke Devlin of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''. If having theme music of ''Music/JustinTimberlake'''s "Sexy Back" whenever he talks isn't enough, he has an appeal that [[EvenTheGuysWantHim even guys notice]]. From those countless fangirls, and the pretty hair, and those ''gorgeous''green eyes.

As the description implies, this trope is almost always applied to male characters, due to various {{Double Standard}}s, along with not a small amount of [[MostWritersAreMale wish fulfillment]]. When the [[GenderInverted Gender Inversion]] does happen they are usually referred to as a Dude Magnet, this trope's alternate title.

* Nawat Crow in Tamora Pierce's ''Literature/SongOfTheLioness''. His innocence is compounded by the fact that...well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin he's a transformed crow]] and, in the beginning, misinterpreted kissing as mate-feeding and thought that a reasonable way to substantially increase the number of available warriors was to continuously mate and have nestlings. The fact that he's adorable doesn't hurt either.
