* ''SlamDunk'': Never mind that the protagonist starts playing basketball to impress a girl, 99% of fanfics and fanart for the series is slash.

* ''Anime/{{Beyblade}}''. Because of it's CastFullOfPrettyBoys, fanfiction is about 90% yaoi. It can be pretty ridiculous but is unsurprising when there are 50+ characters and 9 prominent females, plus the mothers of two characters, a teacher & a minor character who was never seen after season 1.

* ''Manga/{{Haikyuu}}'' is a sports manga with dozens of boys but a much smaller amount of girls. The fans are quite prone to shipping the CastFullOfPrettyBoys together.
* ''Manga/BigWindup'' contains many boys but few girls, though most of the cast has showed interest in girls at one time or another. Every major ship is of the boys with each other.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' justifies this with the support system. Half of the time there's going to be a GayOption (or two, or three...) available, and more than once, the GayOption has [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend won an ending over the het ones]].

* ''VideoGame/StarFox'' fanfics. Fox and Wolf are almost ''always'' openly gay. It doesn't help that, until ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'', the cast was almost ''entirely'' male (with one un-determinable gender).

* ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven'' contains ''a lot'' of boys but not too many girls. This is a factor in why most pairings are between the boys.

* ''Webcomic/ForEternity'', a web remake of ''Rainbow Brite'', has all the Color Kids (as well as its versions of Rainbow Brite, Stormy, etc) as male. Considering that the only females in that universe are childlike temple guardians or the four mother Goddesses, this is justified.

* When the ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' fandom isn't shipping the ponies with [=OCs=] or genderswapping the characters, they ship them with each other, and inevitably this trope is the result. The ImprobablyFemaleCast in all series certainly helps, with G3 lacking ''any'' male characters aside from Spike.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' fanworks often portray most, if not all, of The Misfits (and their groupie Clash) as being gay, bicurious, and/or bisexual. The [[ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms reboot comic]] [[AscendedFanon confirmed]] the most popular pair - Kimber and Stormer - but the other Misfits haven't shown romantic interest in anyone thus far.

* At one point during the long span of time covered in ''TheForeverWar'', it's mentioned that homosexuality, or 'homolife', is encouraged as a form of population control.

* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' slash fic often goes along with this. Partly because there are very few female characters in the series, even if you include the tank, and [[spoiler:all of them are either dead or missing.]]

* Common with the ''StaticShock'' fandom. Irony kicks in however because the comic actually dealt with [[GayAesop Virgil coming to terms with his homophobia]].

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. Since the show focuses on the femme-presenting Gems, very little het romance takes place. Gems can even combine their bodies into entirely new characters.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', probably because there are so few important girl characters other than Wendy and Bebe. This despite how every one of the boys (including Butters and Cartman) have shown attraction to woman, many (including Butters) have stated that they're straight, and Stan had an off and on [[PuppyLove relationship with Wendy]].

*** Fans wanting to read heterosexual ships often use one-shot characters or "background ponies" like Thunderlane, Flash Sentry, and Pokey Pierce (who are most often shipped with Rainbow Dash, Twilight, and Pinkie Pie, respectively). These "background ponies" are pretty much a fandom-wide example of OCStandIn, since shipping canon characters with actual original characters is frowned upon due to the tendency to make said OC a [[MarySue Marty-Stu]], though this has since died down as the fandom grew older and learned how to write better characters.
