* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' and Sasuke have this and it's lampshaded often by other characters. There's also the three accidental kisses they had, the DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything moments, the occasional NoSenseOfPersonalSpace around each other, and Naruto angsts/thinks quite a bit about Sasuke in Part II.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** Hashirama Senju and Madara Uchiha are this + FoeRomanceSubtext. [[spoiler:As it turns out, this is because they're the reincarnations of the Sage of the Six Paths younger and older sons, respectively. After Madara ''finally'' died, they were reincarnated again -- as Naruto and Sasuke]].

and Sasuke have this and it's lampshaded often by other characters. There's also the three accidental kisses they had, the DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything moments, the occasional NoSenseOfPersonalSpace around each other, and Naruto angsts/thinks quite a bit about Sasuke in Part II.II.
** Kakashi and Obito. After his death, Kakashi's guilt caused him to idealize Obito to such an extent that everything in his life revolved around him. He spent ''years'' trying to live up to Obito's loyalty to his comrades and kind-hearted nature, and even adopted an entirely new personality and mannerisms to emulate Obito as a memorial to him. Even his chronic lateness is attributed to Obito -- not only was Obito similarly late as a kid due to his helpful nature, but also, Kakashi's lateness is because he spends ''every''. ''single''. ''day''. at the Memorial Stone, staring at ''Obito's name'' for '''three hours straight'''. Obito is the one death Kakashi has never been able to move past, all but making him TheLostLenore to him. [[spoiler:Learning that Obito was Tobi, and thus responsible for nearly every tragedy he and his team (especially Naruto and Sasuke) have suffered over the course of the manga, including their sensei's death, almost breaks him beyond repair. On Obito's end, though he doesn't admit it, Kakashi is equally important to him. Obito's ideal world is not only one where Rin is alive, but also one where his closest friend lived up to the ideals that drove him in his youth]].

* ''Series/EastboundAndDown''--The ongoing relationship between Kenny and Stevie is a terrific parody of a romantic relationship, Kenny being the (over)dominant personality and Stevie being the emotionally sensitive one.

* ''Fanfic/WaitingIsWorthIt'': Bakugo's overprotectiveness over Izuku and Izuku's emotional dependence on Bakugo in-turn has led to a lot of people - from Izuku's mother to Uraraka - to assume that the two are together. Bakugo denies it of course, and Izuku has no idea what they're talking about.

* For ''Film/StrangersOnATrain'', Creator/AlfredHitchcock and Robert Walker (Bruno) worked out an elaborate series of gestures and physical appearance to suggest the homosexuality and seductiveness of Bruno's character while bypassing censor objections.

** Whilst the [[ChildhoodFriends Doctor/]][[FriendlyEnemy Master]] FoeYay has always existed, ''WebAnimation/ScreamOfTheShalka'' and the Tenth Doctor episodes took it further than it had ever been. Creator/PaulCornell [[WordOfGod confirmed]] that the Doctor and the android Master were an item in ''Scream of the Shalka'', while Creator/RussellTDavies has confirmed on multiple times that he believes the two to be almost soul mates, which is part of what makes it so tragic. Creator/StevenMoffat has also admitted to shipping them, going so far as to [[RelationshipUpgrade get them together]] at the end of the parody ''Recap/DoctorWhoTheCurseOfFatalDeath'', after the Doctor regenerates into a woman, and to have them kiss in the main series story "Dead Water"/"Death In Heaven" after the Master regenerates into a women.

* ''Theatre/AGentlemansGuideToLoveAndMurder'' includes an entire song between Henry and Monty, "Bettter With A Man," full of wordplay and visual innuendo that deliberately evokes this.

* While the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series has pitted Kairi as the object of Sora's affections, he and Riku seem to have a type of "chemistry" of their own.

* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/4406963/chapters/10787252 The Knight of Storm's End]]'', [[ManipulativeBastard Littlefinger]] tries to discredit Stannis Baratheon by making a fuss over his relationship with Davos Seaworth and Jon Snow, implying Stannis's interest for them runs ''this way''. The story is still floating around in the sequel, as seen when Oberyn asks if [[LikeBrotherAndSister Jon and Shireen]] could end up involved with each other before playfully recalling [[LoverAndBeloved Shireen's father is supposed to be the one sleeping with the lad]].

* Geldoblame from ''VideoGame/BatenKaitosOrigins'', from his dress and mannerisms to his clear obsession with Quaster Verus (including keeping a ''scrapbook'' dedicated to the man) hints pretty strongly that Geldoblame is into the guy. [[spoiler:When it's revealed Verus is the BigBad and he pulls a YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness, this exchange strongly implies there was even a mutual relationship between them at one point:]]
--> [[spoiler:'''Geldoblame:''' You're going to abandon me, sir? But I've done everything for you!]]
--> [[spoiler:'''Verus:''' You were beautiful once, but not anymore. Old toys are a waste of space. What else would I do but throw you away?]]

* Whether or not [[FanPreferredCouple Lyra and Bon Bon]] of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' are this or just HoYay is a ''massive'' [[BrokenBase subject of debate]] within the fanbase. Stuff like [[https://derpibooru.org/915992 this]], [[https://derpibooru.org/915997 this]], [[https://derpibooru.org/934915 this]], and ''[[ShipTease especially]]'' [[https://derpibooru.org/952011 this]] are often used as "proof" that the two are in a QueerRomance with someone always being quick to argue they're "just friends": just look at the slew of comments on every single one of those links.

* Almost all of Creator/KevinSmith's films in the Franchise/TheViewAskewniverse especially revolve around two men and their very close friendships. Some of these films (like ''Film/ChasingAmy'' between the protagonist and his male best friend) openly portray it as attraction, but most leave it as subtext. He acknowledged that he would put some of this content in his films as {{Fanservice}} directed at gay people.
