* In ''Manga/MagicalPokemonJourney'' a Squirtle has a crush on a male human, Almond. The English translators tried to censor it but the HoYay was still there. There's also Charmander who is implied to have a crush on Eevee, but it's never very explicit.

* An in-universe incarnation appears with the Hyrulian CreationMyth in ''Fanfic/InSottoVoce''. It's mentioned that early on the Three Goddesses were seen as lovers. Eventually Hylians sanitized this interpretation so that they were instead sisters. Sheikahs, however, still believe the more ancient incarnation.

* ''Literature/TheColorPurple'' is a book about a woman named Celie who falls for a woman who helps her escape her abusive husband. Celie in the book is very clearly lesbian, repeatedly mentioning her disgust at men and lusting after Shug Avery from the moment she saw her photograph. The two end up forming a relationship. TheFilmOfTheBook almost completely removed the QueerRomance between them, instead making it into a close friendship. The only references are Celie's fawning over Shug Avery and a single kiss scene.

** In the sequel ''Manga/UQHolder'', [[spoiler: this is furthered by the fact that Konoka has two granddaughters who look explicitly like Konoka and Setsuna as young girls]].

* ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' excels at setting up [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship beautiful, romantic relationships]] [[SchoolgirlLesbians between female characters]] that [[BaitAndSwitchLesbians never quite]] [[RelationshipReveal make the leap into text]]. The original light novels is heavier on the implications but even then no confirmations of crushes are given, besides Sei being openly gay.

* An odd example occurs in the manga ''Mugen Densetsu Takamagahara: Dream Saga''. In one world, Nachi is female in mind and body, while [[GenderBender in another]], she is [[TransSexual transgender]]. Her romantic subplots with Takaomi and Souta, both of whom are male, are almost exclusively given attention in Takamagahara, i.e. when Nachi looks female; in Nakatsukuni, it's reduced to EvenTheGuysWantHim gags.

* In the book ''Literature/ReadyPlayerOne'', it's an important plot point that [[spoiler:Aech's player, Helen,]] is a lesbian. The ''Movie/ReadyPlayerOne2018'' movie largely glosses over this—the conversation in which it comes out in the book never happens in the movie. [[spoiler:However, during the exploration of ''The Shining'', Aech ''is'' shown to be quite willing to go along with being vamped by a naked woman, until she turns out to be a zombie.]]

** The film also pokes fun at the hypocrisy behind GayPanic in modern culture, with the parents' reaction to what they believe is a lesbian relationship between the two leads. Initially the mother is distraught, in tears, and yelling at her daughter...until she finds out the relationship is platonic and cheerfully switches to claiming there's nothing wrong with lesbians.

* The anime of ''Literature/SoundEuphonium'' introduces truckloads of sexual tension between Kumiko and Reina, culminating in a scene in episode 8 so laden with {{subtext}} that it had {{yuri fan}}s all over {{squee}} in delight. And it just escalates from there in the following episodes. In the novels it gets just as heated, but while Reina's plot point (where she has a crush on a teacher) [[AbortedArc gets dropped like a hot potato and eventually forgotten]] in the books that follow, Kumiko [[spoiler:starts dating Shuichi, her ChildhoodFriend]]. Despite this, the books go even further with the subtext; but apparently an oddly detailed description of touching each other's underwear is not intended to imply any romantic attraction. In the anime Kumiko ends up with [[spoiler: no one]], however she does declare a (probably) PlatonicLoveConfession to [[spoiler:Asuka]]. Shuichi's scenes were mostly either cut or made more platonic, which only made her tension with Reina more noticeable.
