* ''Film/TopGun'' was rife with subtext. Years later, asked if his role in ''Film/KissKissBangBang'' was his first gay character, ValKilmer joked that it was - but only if you don't count ''Top Gun.''

* ''VisualNovel/DRAMAticalMurder'' manages to fit this into the common route between Aoba and [[ChildhoodFriend Koujaku]], with Koujaku constantly fussing over Aoba and generally acting like an overprotective boyfriend. [[spoiler: In Koujaku's route it's revealed that he's been in love with Aoba since long before the game began.]]

Early on Shizune and Misha are established as almost literally attached at the hip [[spoiler:before the reveal that Misha [[{{Gayngst}} really is]] [[IncompatibleOrientation in love with Shizune]]]], while Lilly and Hanako have the closest, caring, most emotional relationship out of anyone in the cast. Even if he's currently dating one of them, Hisao regularly acknowledges that the girls have a bond that he will likely never understand.

* ''Series/ScreamQueens2015'' featured a considerable amount of this between Chad and Brock in Season 2. Chad corners him in the shower in a HoYay charged confrontation that becomes a FailedMomentOfDrama when Chad - who is also fully nude - realises "I think our wieners just touched". The episode after that featured a similar scene where Chad once again cornered Brock naked in the shower room, this time noticing that their "wieners" were symmetrical.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' invokes quite possibly the most nightmarish example ever between Theon Greyjoy/"Reek" and [[TortureTechnician Ramsay Snow]], [[ColdBloodedTorture who tortured Theon so horribly]] that he now doesn't even [[IdentityAmnesia remember his former identity]]. This is done while Ramsay is bathing him no less.

* ''Series/OnceUponATime'' has a shocking amount of FoeYay between Emma and Regina, that eventually turns into straight up LesYay when the latter makes a HeelFaceTurn. The first half of Season 4 has Emma attempting to rebuild her friendship with Regina, in pretty much the same way a lover would. One episode has a flashback to Emma's childhood about a friendship that went south - said friendship being incredibly charged with romantic undertones - and it's paralleled to Emma's current stance with Regina. The fact that Regina is the adopted mother of Emma's son Henry has led to a couple of jokes about Henry [[HasTwoMommies having two mothers]], which is certainly no coincidence. It's by far the most popular ship on the show, named 'Swan Queen'.

** The fact of Henry having two mothers has by now become canon. It has even been referred to multiple times by the characters themselves.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Film/Foxcatcher}}'' adds in subtext that March Schultz and John Du Pont have a twisted sexual relationship going on. This ranges from seemingly insignificant things like Mark frequently being shirtless around John to rather questionable scenes - such as a late-night wrestling practice, and Mark giving John an IntimateHaircut. The real Mark Schultz took exception to this implication and slammed the film, before calming down after a while.

* ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger'' has Courtney Grippling inexplicably taking an interest in Ginger and constantly going out of her way to be her friend - with a few episode plots paralleling the ManicPixieDreamGirl. Courtney's best friend Miranda also gets incredibly jealous at her interest in Ginger, making the situation look like YourCheatingHeart. Most of Miranda's antagonising of Ginger is usually out of jealousy. WordOfGod is that they considered having Courtney reveal she was in love with Ginger but it got an ExecutiveVeto.
