* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': Statistically, at least one of the male characters in the cast has to be straight, but with the lack of female characters, having a manga full of [[FauxActionGirl False Action Girls]], and not being well-received in terms of personality either, it's easy for fans to assume that most of the shinobi casts are gay with what the yaoi fics and all.

This also applies to female characters, though to a far lesser degree.



* ''YuriOnIce'' has a same-sex OfficialCouple and [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys lots of other male characters]] who are implied to be gay/bi or [[ShipTease have romantic attachments to other guys]], so most fanfiction writers just run with it and pair up ''everyone'' with someone else of the same gender. This even extends to the few female characters, as Mila Babicheva/Sara Crispino is one of the most popular ships in the fandom [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight despite few interactions in the show itself]]. The exceptions are Yuuri's married friends back home, Yuuko and Nishigori, and occasionally J.J. and his canon fiancée Isabella. But even the latter, some fans [[DieForOurShip still break them up]] (or pretend Isabella doesn't exist in the first place) and hook J.J. up with another guy. Overall, HetIsEw rules the day in ''YuriOnIce'' fandom.

Added DiffLines:

* Almost all shipping in ''Manga/{{Days}}'' tends to be between the boys. The high amount of HoYay between the boys doesn't help.
* ''Anime/OsomatsuSan'' fans prefer to ship [[IncestYayShipping the brothers together]] (and sometimes Chibita). The exception to the rule is Jyushimatsu and [[FanNickname Homura]], which borders on OneTruePairing, but even it sometimes gets scoffed at.

** Later Persona games don't have an overt GayOption, but a lot of same-sex ships have become popular anyway.

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' has this UpToEleven. The most used heterosexual ship is only the eigth most used ship on ArchiveOfOurOwn and it is Bakugou and Uraraka, nevermind the fact they barely interacted with each other, and the latter being the only character that admitted having feelings for someone else (the protagonist, Izuku Midoriya).

*** With the introduction of Thorax, Spike officially gets this as much as the girls do.

** The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fandom deserves special mention for the sheer size of the fanfiction community and its adherence to this trope. It's somewhat inevitable, as there are dozens upon dozens of recurring female characters, but aside from child characters that are too young to ship without an age-up, the recurring male cast members are a handful, and one of them who is HappilyMarried, anyway.

* ''Anime/TheIdolmaster'' to the point where some fans were enraged that a male was put into the show as the producer. Being the only male in an otherwise ImprobablyFemaleCast however means he can still be largely ignored. Even then fans found a way to weasel him out of that by shipping him with the Producer from the ''[[Anime/TheIdolmasterCinderellaGirls Cinderella Girls]]'' anime.

* Just like its anime, ''VideoGame/TheIdolmaster'' and its spinoffs are loaded to the brim with same-gender character interactions that fans just love. This is so ubiquitous that when the all-male SpearCounterpart ''[[VideoGame/TheIdolmasterSideM SideM]]'' came out, any of the boys from earlier games that made their way in without a pairing quickly got one with the new idols.

The tendency for FanFic and other fan works to include characters that are homosexual/bisexual/pansexual in an improbably high amount, [[SuddenlySexuality even if the original work contains no indication of such a thing]]. Works possessing a CastFullOfPrettyBoys or an ImprobablyFemaleCast are especially susceptible to this, as there's virtually no choice for [[{{Shipping}} shippers]] to avoid this route other than applying a GenderBender or RuleSixtyThree, or adding in their own original character. Often considered a form of CanonDefilement and CharacterDerailment, although obviously those perpetuating it mostly disagree.

* Thanks to the distinct lack of any characters of the opposite gender in ''Videogame/KantaiCollection'' and its SpearCounterpart ''Videogame/ToukenRanbu'', most of the shipgirls and swordboys are paired up with each other. This is usually due to their interactions in cutscenes and in-game dialogue. The only way to get around it is through fan portrayals of their commander (the Admiral for KanColle, the Saniwa for Tourabu) since some have a crush on them, but even then they can be just as gay as the rest of the cast due to the character having GenderNeutralWriting.
