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.

* ''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.

* ''Manga/HunterXHunter''. Many of the boys are pretty, friendships range from overprotective obsessed friend to acts-like-an-old-married-couple, there's a [[{{Shotacon}} pedophile]], very few women, & lots of fanservice pandering in the live musicals.

** The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fandom deserve special mention for the sheer size of the fanfiction community and its adherence to this trope. It's somewhat inevitable, as there are dozens of recurring female characters, but aside from child characters like [[TheOneGuy Spike]], Snips and Snails that are too young to ship, the only recurring male characters are Big Macintosh, [[MadGod Discord]], and Shining Armor, and the latter is HappilyMarried anyway.

* ''{{Neptunia}}'', which has an all-female cast, plenty of LesYay, and a {{Tsundere}} all help facilitate this.

* ''Manga/KurokoNoBasuke'', with only three named female characters in the entire manga (Momoi,Riko and Alex) plus a CastFullOfPrettyBoys with plenty of ShipTease and HoYay, it's no wonder that yaoi fanarts of this series run rampant on the internet.

* ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid''. There is only one character who shows interest in the opposite gender (and even then, [[BiTheWay she's slept with at least one woman in the past]]).

* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' gets a ton of this. Even without the at-times hilariously unsubtle HoYay (or LesYay in the case of part 6), the huge imbalance in the number of male vs. female characters and the lack of romance in general makes it inevitable.

* ''Anime/{{Monster}}''. Never mind that Tenma was engaged to a female. Nevermind that Grimmer had a wife and a son. Nevermind that Runge has a daughter. Nevermind that none of them, in any possible light, look remotely {{bishonen}} (except for Johan)
