** This was also done to Zoisite and Kunzite in the original English dub as well. Specifically, Zoisite was re-written as a woman, and was also given a female voice actress.

* In-universe example on ''Series/UnREAL'', set behind the scenes of an {{Expy}} of ''TheBachelor'' called ''Everlasting'': in "Truth" Faith, a Christian smalltown girl and one of the more popular contestants, reveals to the crew that she's a lesbian in love with a friend of hers (and vice versa). While she resolves her questions and wants to come out on the show, her friend is much less willing (as she tells main character Rachel, "Does Matthew Shepard ring a bell?"). Rachel does succeed in keeping it quiet.

* ''TanakaKunWaItsumoKegaragure'' is an odd case. All the ([[ChastityCouple admittedly few]]) scenes between Miyano and Echizen are kept, including Miyano's outright LoveConfession, but the anime notably switches around the order of some scenes from the manga, having a scene where Echizen is flustered mistakenly thinking that Ohta and Tanaka both want her to marry them come after said confession and adding some scenes not in the manga that imply Echizen having a crush on Ohta.

* Korra and Asami of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' became increasingly close over the course of the series, achieving a level of intimacy that they never reached with Mako, their mutual male love interest, essentially becoming an OfficialCouple in all but name, culminating in them [[spoiler:walking hand-in-hand through a spirit portal in the final episode, gazing into each other's eyes in a recreation of the final shot of Aang and Katara in [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender the previous series]]]]. Due to Nickelodeon S&P it was never outright stated onscreen, but the writers pushed the implication as far as they could possibly get away with. [[spoiler:[[http://bryankonietzko.tumblr.com/post/106008606112/ It was later confirmed]] by WordOfGod that Korra and Asami are an OfficialCouple (though they're [[BiTheWay bisexual]], not lesbians).]]

* In ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'', Mint was actually allowed to give a love confession to her OneeSama Zakuro, but they were fighting at the time, and Zakuro never gives her answer onscreen. Compare to fellow minor teammate Lettuce, who was allowed to carry out a long and involved ShipTease LoveTriangle with ''two'' males, one of whom she actually kissed. The wording used by Mint in the anime is more ambiguous than the way Ichigo and Masaya confess their love to each other, which gives Mint's line a possibility to be taken in a more or less neutral "I pledge my loyalty" sense. Although the anime itself is greatly {{bowdlerise}}d in that aspect -- in the manga Mint's crush on Zakuro is increasingly more blatant and hardly allows for interpretations outside of the SchoolgirlLesbians concept.
** In a bizarre inversion, the English dub actually made it slightly ''more'' explicit in one scene. A scene in the Japanese version had the girls thinking of various guys they were attracted to, with Mint shown thinking of a male dancer she admired. In the English version, [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar she is instead shown thinking of Renee]] ([[DubNameChange Zakuro's English name]]).

* Nanoha and Fate from the ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' franchise likely have something more going on than just a [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship romantically tinged friendship]]. At least, they share a bed and [[HasTwoMommies adopt a child together]]. ''If'' that is indeed the case, they keep very quiet about it, since they don't do more in public than exchange glances. Although it's not just Nanoha and Fate - aside from Chrono and Amy, who never actually appear together after the scene that reveals they got married, ''none'' of the relationships are confirmed to be more than friendship, regardless of the genders involved, so this could be attributed to NoHuggingNoKissing.
** By ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'' this has gotten strange. Yuuno is no longer in the picture, and, for the last 4 years, Vivio has considered Fate as her other mother. Nanoha and Fate still live with each other when Fate isn't on a mission that takes her to other worlds; they still refer to each other as "best friends", but are referred to collectively as "The Takamachi Family." (They own a minivan.) The writers are taking it to the molecule-length of the line. '''Before''' ''[=ViVid=]'', Yuuno was explicitly mentioned as an important part of said Takamachi Family (on an official LoveChart no less).

* [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Harley and Ivy]], from the comic of same name. Harley especially is very enthusiastically cuddly, and Ivy seems to be her fallback from the (more) abusive relationship Harley had with the Joker. When Batgirl discreetly asks if they're... you know, Harley responds "What, like what people say about you and Supergirl?". The matter is quickly dropped. In one scene it did look like Ivy was going to kiss Harley, only to be interrupted by angry AmbiguouslyGay characters. Made (sorta) canon in the final ''ComicBook/GothamCitySirens'' storyline. Harley taunts Ivy by telling her that she's always known that she only hates the Joker because she's secretly in love with Harley herself, and the following issue has Ivy admitting that she does indeed have feelings for her. [[WordOfGay Confirmed by the writer]], but within the comics and show you'll never see anything concrete between them.
** Completely Averted in New 52, they two are frequently shown to have a sexual relationship, though like pre-52, nothing is outright stated.

* The original movie adaptation of ''Theatre/TheChildrensHour'' wrote out the lesbian plot and replaced it with a heterosexual one. It changed the concept that Karen and Martha are having an affair to the notion that Martha is cheating with Karen's fiance. A large amount of dialogue was [[AdaptationContextChange swapped around]] due to the change. The second adaptation keeps the original plot intact but no one ever actually says any lgbt related terms.

* While ''Franchise/TheSims'' allows EveryoneIsBi for player-made characters, it seemed that a DLC town for ''VideoGame/TheSims3'', released in early 2013, was to include a same-gender couple for the first time in the series' thirteen-year run. (There had previously been a few single characters who were implied to be gay, but had no love interests.) The family portrait shows two men with their arms around one another's shoulders (the standard pose for married couples in the game) and a young girl with a portmanteau of their surnames who is apparently their daughter. Upon loading the household, however, it emerges that the girl is the adopted daughter of only one of the men, and the other is not his boyfriend or husband but only his "Best Friend Forever".

* Franke and Kitty from ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' are presented as best friends in-series yet an official website parodying Friendster (called "Campster") [[AllThereInTheManual states]] that they're [[PuppyLove a couple]]. Kitty is described as bisexual while Franke seems to be lesbian. It's possible they're so young that relationships are treated identically to friendships, though the campers are often precocious for their ages.
