* A Deconstruction from ''Manga/{{Kakegurui}}'' to the character of Yumemi Yumemite, one of the members of a Student Council, who attends at the academy by the hopes that she can get connections she wants to achieve her dreams to become part of Hollywood. An unhealthy dosage of dealing with LoonyFan, PsychoSupporter and FanDumb will absolutely corrode her sanity and thus [[NiceCharacterMeanActor hates her fans as a result.]]

* ''Anime/TsukiutaTheAnimation'' follows the idol groups Six Gravity and Procellarum. The idols in them are all based on months - Six Gravity is December-May, June-November are Procella. They are both male groups, but the franchise also has female equivalents, Eluna and Selas. Tsukipro also has another set of four male groups, Soara, [=SolidS=], Quell, and Growth, that are getting their own anime, ''Anime/TsukiproTheAnimation''

A wildly popular trope in fiction about JapanesePopMusic is the "Idol Singer" -- a teenage or early twenty-something ([[ChristmasCake NEVER over 25]]) female performer, chosen for her [[{{Kawaisa}} cute and attractive image]] and [[NiceGirl sunny personality]] more than for her actual singing ability (though having ''actual'' talent underneath is not completely out of the rule). Idol Singers are recruited by multi-level audition processes, manufactured and managed by Japanese media companies, and [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness ruthlessly discarded]] after a few years of cranking out formulaic hits. Sometimes, idol singers [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything don't actually sing]] (like Music/MilliVanilli). Originally they were supposed to be [[PurityPersonified pure and innocent]], and her [[ContractualPurity contract could well include]] an article of her not being allowed to have a boyfriend. Although in modern times there's a lot more diversity in how idols are presented, several such aspects of the industry still remain.

* Another [[RareMaleExample male example]] in ''VideoGame/EnsembleStars'', but the manga adaptation [[{{Deconstruction}} explores it a bit]]; they don't shy away from the point that the boys, first and foremost, are ''people'' rather than performers or objects to ogle at.



* The Producer course from ''VideoGame/EnsembleStars'' gives us a whole group of male idol singers.
