* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'': There's something about Ganondorf that makes him quite the LGBT bait. In addition, the hero Link was voted hottest video game character by the LGBT magazine "Out." He's also been known to inspire StupidSexyFlanders moments in straight male fans. Also, in ''Skyward Sword'' the BigBad Ghirahim is a "fabulous" villain who gets FoeYay with Link and has inspired a lot of fan works pairing him and Link, though he is stated to be genderless.

Then there's the queer analysis the games get especially in regards to Link with his pretty boy looks and [[http://www.zeldainformer.com/news/that_romantic_spark_part_ix_-_beyond_heterosexual shipping moments with other male characters.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Vamp's relationship with Raiden gets a lot of focus. He flirts with and gets uncomfortably close to Raiden all throughout MGS 2. Their encounter in 4 drops any pretense of subtlety, with a scene that's more erotic than some actual sex scenes, including Vamp licking Raiden's thick white artificial blood off of his crotch-knives, and a session of grappling and groaning that involves Raiden penetrating Vamp with his sword (the non-metaphorical one).

* ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'' has developed one primarily for the fans of one sided FoeYay Hannibal had towards Will Graham before it eventually became mutual.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' has a mostly female cast and a predominantly male fanbase, but you wouldn't know that if you followed the Tumblr fanbase (who post a ''ton'' of LesYay fanart over the RWBY ladies). Also, most of the most popular ships are homosexual.

Also, most personalities of the most popular ships are homosexual.four heroines during the show's original four advertising trailers. While the show proved the assumptions wrong, interviews revealed the creators do want LGBT characters, but the teens will develop self-awareness slowly and realistically. Confirmed creator support boosted fan interest, making it a very prominent part of the fandom.

* Kumatetsu, of ''Anime/TheBoyAndTheBeast'', has gathered a couple amount of fanboys from the FurryFandom, considering he is a muscled PettingZooPerson who is also a {{Badass}}.

** In terms of his shows, WebVideo/DemoReel, with the [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys cast of attractive men]] (and one {{badass}} lady played by an hilarious [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer model]]) who constantly participated in bromance, was the one most loved by his queer audience.

The reason for this is not always known. Maybe it's intentional {{Fanservice}}, maybe it's merely unintentional FetishFuel, or maybe just relatable CharacterDevelopment of an AudienceSurrogate (whether intentional or not). Not all {{LGBT Fanbase}}s are unintentional; quite a bit revolves around canon gay or bi characters or relationships. It could be "acceptable" HomoeroticSubtext by creators who are otherwise straight, as with ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''. It could even have started unintentionally but later [[WordOfGay have been made official]] to please [[AscendedFanon the acknowledged fans]], as famously happened with ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess''.

* Music/MarilynManson, due to a combination of the entire band bucking gender norms entirely, and Manson and Twiggy being unable to keep their hands off each other, have a lot of bisexual fans. You'll find more support for Manson and Twiggy getting together than you'll ever find for any of Manson's relationships with women, and the fact that the fandom doesn't hate Twiggy's wife Laney can likely be tied to her being both adorable and bisexual herself, and the fact that the Manson/Twiggy stuff hasn't toned down at all since they got married. Manson and Twiggy make out on stage, Twiggy has given him oral sex on stage before, and they're often in public being extremely adorable. That said, Twiggy's not the only guy Manson's shipped with in the fandom. JohnnyDepp is also a popular one, due to Manson and Depp being just as physical as Manson is with Twiggy. And then there's the time John 5 gave Manson a rimjob on stage and said it tasted good. Half the Manson fanart you'll find is adorable gay coupling. Manson and Twiggy even have a couple name: Maniggy.
