* Hinata Hyuuga from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' whenever she so much as looks at Naruto, primarily in Part I. Sakura also sported a bright blush several times. Examples include when Naruto faced Zabuza for the first time, or when she met Naruto after the TimeSkip and he seemed more mature...[[IdiotBall until he proved that he wasn't]]. Then [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale she proceeded to punch the crap out of him]]. Most of the blushes from Sakura were [[SingleTargetSexuality directed towards Sasuke]], though also primarily in Part I before his FaceHeelTurn.

* In the ''TokimekiMemorial'' series, and its SpiritualSuccessor ''VideoGame/MitsumeteKnight'', this is a staple feature. If the girls you are dating show up with a blushing face, it's a good sign that your relationship with her has reached a "deeply in love" stage and thus you have a high chance of ending with her, special requirements for the particular girl not taken in account. In ''Tokimeki Memorial'', this feature is officially called the "Tokimeki State", and in some parts of the Western fandom the "Blushing Stage".

* [[{{Tsundere}} Integra]] ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' [[BelligerentSexualTension towards Alucard]] when he's being an ''idiot''.
* The titular character of ''Manga/{{Karin}}'', who is [[TropeCodifier Luminiscent Blush incarnate]], deserves special mention. She's so [[{{Moe}} easily embarrassed]], that it's hard to catch her while ''not'' blushing. Other characters of the series even comment on it. [[FridgeBrilliance Of course, it could just be all the blood she has]].
* ''Manga/KimagureOrangeRoad'': Episode 2. [[IdiotHero Kyosuke]] [[OfficialCouple and]] [[{{Tsundere}} Madoka]] are washing dishes together when their hands accidentally brush together. Quickly they broke contact and kept on washing dishes, lowering their heads and avoiding eye contact. Their faces were completely red as they did so. Soooo cute.
* ''Mazinger'' universe:
** In ''Anime/MazingerZ'' and its sequels -''Anime/GreatMazinger'' and ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' this trope was much more prevalent in the manga than in the anime (where the male heroes usually were {{Chaste Hero}}s). In the manga episodes, pretty much all teen characters (including Kouji Kabuto himself) blushed brightly at one point or another, either because his/her LoveInterest was praising them/flirting with them or because someone had suggested they were one couple. In ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'' also was usual seeing Kouji or Sayaka -- or some another character -- blushing furiously.
** Original manga's episode 8 was a good example. Kouji and Sayaka [[AccidentalPervert accidentally saw at each other naked]] [[HotSpringsEpisode in the hot springs]]. Their faces were fully red afterwards.
** Another example from ''Anime/ShinMazingerZero'': [[http://www.citymanga.com/shin_mazinger_zero/chapter-2/02/]]
* Kazumi Yoshida (which makes her very cute) whenever Yuji is around in ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana''. Shana doesn't lag too far behind, often coupled with her catch phrase. Especially in the S OAV.
* Hinata Hyuuga from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' whenever she so much as looks at Naruto. Sakura also sported a bright blush several times. Examples include when Naruto faced Zabuza for first time, or when she met Naruto after the TimeSkip and he seemed more mature.
* ''Anime/SailorMoon'':
** The Inner Sailor Senshi, their leader Sailor Moon and her boyfriend Tuxedo Kamen/Mask, find out that the child they've been looking after is Moon and Mask's KidFromTheFuture. The parents-to-be blush so deeply that [[HighPressureEmotion steam appears over their heads]]. It doesn't help when Sailor Mars barks:
--->'''Sailor Mars''': [[CrowningMomentOfFunny WHAT DAY, WEEK, MONTH OR YEAR DID THIS HAPPEN]]??!!!
** Infamously in the Super S movie, after killing some {{Mooks}}, [[ButchLesbian Sailor Uranus]] questions whether their plans have good or bad intentions. [[LipstickLesbian Sailor Neptune]] points out that being a child forever is a terrible idea because "[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar there are so many fun things to do as adults]]." Despite not twitching, [[{{Adorkable}} Uranus]] [[DelayedReaction slowly]] blushes and then [[ChirpingCrickets awkwardly clears her throat]].
** Sailor Mercury is knocked over in a tight alleyway to the point in which her behind is sticking up in the air. Sailor Jupiter behind her [[PantyShot glances up her skirt]] [[LesYay notably for a long while]], whilst blushing and biting her hand.
* In Act 2 of ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'', Usagi blushes when she makes a mental note that her new acquaintance Ami is cute, and Ami, having been friendless, blushes whenever Usagi's affectionate, like when she hugs Ami effusively, tells her she's cuter when she smiles, and when she agrees to be friends.
* Happens in ''Manga/FullMetalAlchemist'' to [[spoiler: [[WackyMarriageProposal Edward when he proposes]] to Winry]].
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'':
** Shinji and Asuka are prone to these almost whenever they interact. Probably because Shinji is a shy boy and Asuka is a {{Tsundere}}.
*** In one episode, Asuka starts scolding Shinji during school time for forgetting their lunches, while he tries to get his side in. Toji tosses off a remark that they're arguing LikeAnOldMarriedCouple. Cue [[http://i.imgur.com/lhV8mJX.jpg double luminescent blush]] (they HAD kissed not many days earlier), [[http://i.imgur.com/D8UMdeN.jpg then simultaneous denial]] in perfect stereo.
*** In episode eight Asuka blushed when she realized Shinji was taking a peek at her while she was changing clothes.
*** In episode 9 Shinji noticed Asuka was sleeping by his side. He stared at her face for a while, blushing profusely as he did so.
*** Shinji gets another (and [[SomethingElseAlsoRises something else]]) when he overhears [[GirlOnGirlIsHot questionable behaviour between Misato and Asuka]] in the female area of the hot springs.
---->'''Shinji:''' ''(whilst cringing and submerging his blushing face in the water)'' [[UnusualEuphemism Thermal expansion!]] How embarrassing!!
*** Asuka flirts with Shinji by a swimming pool at one point by showing off her new bikini and "teaching" him about [[MemeticMutation thermal expansion]] by patting and caressing her breasts in her bikini top, making him blush as red as anything and [[ChivalrousPervert demanding that she changes the subject]].
*** After the battle against Leliel Asuka visited Shinji in the hospital. She did not want him realizing she had come, but he spotted her anyway. Hurriedly she retreated, blushing as Shinji laughed.
** In one of the ''[[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Rebuild]]'' movies, Misato snaps at her ex Kaji that she is too busy to do anything, especially rekindling their romance. Kaji states that she would probably never find a new lover like him, to which she angrily questions why he should even care. He responds by [[HandsomeLech flashing a patented lady-killer smile straight at her]]. Cue Misato's momentary speechlessness and averted gaze with blush.
** The second film of the Rebuild series has a scene where Hikari approaches Asuka and shyly asks if she can sit with her at lunch. She's even blushing when asking it.

to:

* In the ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' episode "Ah! A Demon has Come and is Creating Calamity!", Mara turns Keiichi into a Honda Cub. When Belldandy and Urd turn him back, they forget that his clothes didn't change with him, leaving him naked. Urd has an amused look on her face, while Belldandy's entire face turns a deep pink.
* Everyone in ''Manga/AiYoriAoshi'', given that they are varying degrees of [[ShrinkingViolet shy]] in romantic situation. Particularly funny with [[TokenMiniMoe Chika]], since it has to show through her deep tan.
* Shy and timid Fumi from ''Manga/AoiHana'' blushes extensively throughout most of the series, but especially so when she talks to a girl she likes. Peculiarly, the only other character who perhaps blushes even more is outgoing and energetic Haruka.
* In the anime version of ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', [[spoiler:Annie Leonhardt]] [[NotSoStoic has this expression]] while [[LaughingMad laughing]] and [[SlasherSmile grinning like mad]] [[spoiler:when she is rightly accused of being the Female Titan.]] This series managed to make even ''this'' trope creepy.
* Many characters in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' have this permanently.
** In fact, the blush is often overlaid with a bright pink one when especially embarrassed or sick - see
[[{{Tsundere}} Integra]] ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' [[BelligerentSexualTension towards Alucard]] when he's being an ''idiot''.

* ''Manga/MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'' has its cases of these. [[TheHero Lucia]] sometimes gets her entire face red, usually when thinking of Kaito.
* Most of the characters in ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' display this at some point, but Fakir -- a brooding {{Jerk with a Heart of Gold}} is probably the best at this out of the ''entire'' cast (yes, including the girls). There are moments in the show where his ENTIRE face glows bright red, and he's one of the darkest-skinned characters in the show! For a good example, check out [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/please_put_some_clothes_on_tv_tropes.jpg the picture]] from the PleasePutSomeClothesOn trope page.
** For blush coverage, you can't beat Ahiru. Her ''whole naked body'' went completely red once. Of course, for humour and frequency both, Fakir still comes out on top there.
* Haruka in ''LightNovel/NogizakaHarukaNoHimitsu''. She's more prone to this than most characters, spending a good half of each episode red in the face.
* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'':
** Fate, socially uncomfortable former DarkMagicalGirl that she is, gets these often.
** Yuuno also gets this one; he's a boy, but he poses as a WeaselMascot.
** Nanoha doing this to Chrono was nearly a RunningGag towards the end of the first series (sadly, only during the first series). What can we say, she's ''adorable'' when she smiles!
** Einhart also gets these from time to time, such as when Nove takes her by surprise in the police station waiting room.

to:

* ''Manga/MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'' has its cases Misaka in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' is prone to doing this when around Touma or when others point out or inquire about her feelings for him. Sometimes a combination of these. [[TheHero Lucia]] sometimes gets this, her tsundereism and Touma's density leads to really funny scenarios.
** In fact, seeing Misaka's reaction to Touma being mentioned is Kuroko's BerserkButton.
** At one point in the second season, the Misaka clones are having a minor argument over #19090 deviating from the others by reading a women's magazine. When Touma innocently makes #10032 (aka Misaka Imouto) remember one of the tips in the magazine she heard from the others[[note]]the tip says that wearing a ring a man buys you on your left ring finger means you're on the winner side; Touma mentioned that #10032 should make herself visually different from the others to be more recognizable by using an accessory, "like a necklace or a '''ring'''"[[/note]], she instantly blushes.

* [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Yuki]] from ''Manga/DanceInTheVampireBund'' gets these quite often, whether it is [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend confessing her feelings to her classmate]] or finding the director of her school reading her [[YaoiFangirl Boys Love work-in-progress]]. Of course neither said classmate (Akira) nor said director (Mina) are immune themselves.
* Appears as early as chapter one of ''Manga/DontBecomeAnOtakuShinozakiSan'', where it was Akina's reaction hearing from the school nurse that Kaede came to the nurse's office
with teary eyes, really worried about Akina's condition after she fainted from a Heart lack of Gold}} is probably sleep. Akina blushed knowing Kaede cared a lot about her, cementing her resolve to get deeper into the best otaku pit to get close to her.

at this his daughter's insistence,]] he goes ComplimentFishing about his appearance to Bulma, Goten, and Chi-Chi, who all [[DidYouGetANewHaircut pretend to not see anything different about him,]] until he loses his temper and screams at them before storming out of the ''entire'' cast (yes, including the girls).

* This is the default expression of ''everyone'' in ''Manga/{{Saikano}}''.
** Up to the point where the blush sometimes appears to be ''coming off character' faces'' and can occasionally get quite distracting.
** The overuse of luminescent blushing in ''Saikano'' leads to the strange effect, that it doesn't even indicate, if a character is ''really'' blushing or not. Only when the face of someone turns glaring red, you can tell that he is in an emotional state that would cause a Luminescent Blush (if it wasn't already there).
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'':
** Negi just has that effect on people. [[ChickMagnet Especially girls]]. Asuna, Setsuna, Nodoka and Yue in particular warrant mention.
** As does [[spoiler:the fake Asuna (Shiori)]], who blushes a hell of a lot more and a lot deeper than [[spoiler:the ''real'' one]] ever did. And that's saying something. [[spoiler:When she's unmasked at the end of Ch. 283, her face combines this trope, CryCute, and a mixture of attraction to and fear of Negi to make her [[{{Moe}} irresistably adorable]].]]
** Chachamaru spends her ''whole'' Pactio chapter in this state. The ''reasons'' for it range from shyness, to [[TheWoobie fear and sadness]], to what can only be called post-orgasmic haze. Even [[FetishFuel better]], she's a RobotGirl.
* Yomiko Readman of ''Anime/ReadOrDie'' does this twice in the OVA. Both times, it's as a result of fellow British Library agent Nancy Makuhari sneaking up behind her and pinching her cheeks, fiddling with her glasses or otherwise displaying some form of affection toward her. Needless to say, by the end of the series these two have hit pretty much every LesYay trope [[IncrediblyLamePun in the book.]]

''Manga/FullMetalAlchemist'' to the point where the blush sometimes appears [[spoiler: [[WackyMarriageProposal Edward when he proposes]] to be ''coming off character' faces'' Winry]].
* Sōsuke from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' does this a few times -- most notably during ''Anime/FullMetalPanicFumoffu''. [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sousuke_blush.jpg He does it once]] when he's defending Kaname against some pathetic Yakuza,
and can occasionally get quite distracting.
** The overuse of luminescent blushing in ''Saikano'' leads to the strange effect,
she threatens them that it she'll call Bonta-kun over to beat them up until they cry. Of course, Sōsuke feels very embarrassed because... well, ''he's'' Bonta-kun, and he thinks she doesn't even indicate, if a character know. Another time is ''really'' blushing or not. Only when the face of someone turns glaring red, you can tell Kaname dresses like a [[ChristmasCake hot, older housewife]], and pretends that he is in an emotional state that would cause a Luminescent Blush (if it wasn't already there).

** As does [[spoiler:the fake Asuna (Shiori)]], who blushes a hell of a lot more and a lot deeper than [[spoiler:the ''real'' one]] ever did. And that's saying something. [[spoiler:When
she's unmasked at having an affair with him. He doesn't recognize her, and [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sousuke_blush2.jpg feels extremely shy and embarrassed]], turning [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sousuke_blush3.jpg bright red]].
** In
the end first few episodes of Ch. 283, her face combines ''FMP'' it's used to show that Kaname is lying when she claims she doesn't find NewTransferStudent Sōsuke attractive. That and the occasional LaughingMad scene.
* ''Manga/FutureDiary'':
** Yuno is often like
this trope, CryCute, and a mixture of attraction whenever she talks to and fear of Negi to make her [[{{Moe}} irresistably adorable]].]]
** Chachamaru spends her ''whole'' Pactio chapter in this state. The ''reasons'' for it range from shyness, to [[TheWoobie fear and sadness]], to what can only be called post-orgasmic haze. Even [[FetishFuel better]],
Yuki. Considering she's a RobotGirl.
* Yomiko Readman of ''Anime/ReadOrDie'' does
walking {{Stalker with a Crush}}-{{Yandere}} combo, it comes off just a ''tad'' creepy. Not just that, but she also gets the blush when '''killing''' for her Yuki. Talk about creepy.
** Yuki himself tends to have
this twice reaction to Yuno whenever she goes PantsFree or [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl casually changes clothes in the OVA. Both times, it's as a result front of fellow British Library agent Nancy Makuhari sneaking up behind her and pinching her cheeks, fiddling with her glasses or otherwise displaying some form of affection toward her. Needless to say, by the end of the series these two have hit pretty much every LesYay trope [[IncrediblyLamePun in the book.]]him]].



* Used copiously and to great effect in ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows''. [[{{Tsundere}} Haqua]] probably does it most often, and not just because she's present in more scenes.

to:

* Used copiously While it is commonplace in ''Anime/GundamBuildFighters'', Episode 23 took the cake by applying this trope ''on a Mobile Suit''. As [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by animation director Masami Obari:
-->'''Obari (via Twitter)''': Even though I know they're just Gunpla, now I have to live with having added blush marks to a Mobile Suit for the rest of my life...
* ''Manga/GunslingerGirl''. Brainwashed
and emotionally restrained Henrietta does this a lot (it's even shown in the TitleSequence) when interacting with her "handler", Giuseppe, due to great effect her PrecociousCrush. Even uptight cyborgs like Triela and Claes blush if their handler makes physical contact with them. Petrushka/Petra is a second generation cyborg and thus subject to lesser amounts of brainwashing, but her FieryRedhead persona means she does this a lot too.
* Misaki from ''Manga/HanaNoMizoShiru'' blushes really]], really, '''really''' frequently.
* ''Anime/HanaukyoMaidTai La Verite'' episode 2. Taro and Mariel during Taro's dream.
* In ''Manga/HanjukuJoshi'', Yae is very prone to this, since she's a relatively straight-laced NaiveNewcomer at a [[OneGenderSchool girls' school]] whose students have [[NoNudityTaboo somewhat relaxed standards of modesty.]]
* ''Manga/HappyHappyClover'': Mallow is seen doing this twice
in ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows''. the series. The first is when she introduces herself to class as a new student in the first story and again in "Mallow's Heart Sours" in Volume 5 after learning [[spoiler: that Shallot likes her.]]
* [[{{Moe}} Mikuru Asahina]] from ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' pulls this off several times in the series. The most dramatic example occurs in [[TheMovie The Dissapearance Of Haruhi Suzumiya]] when [[OnlySaneMan Kyon]] offers proof of his being from an [[AlternateUniverse Alternate Universe]] by telling her how she has a star shaped mole on her left breast.
* Akane in ''[[VideoGame/HarukanaruTokiNoNakaDe Harukanaru Toki no Naka de - Hachiyou Shou]]'' does this occasionally, often in response to Tomomasa's teasing. A few of [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys the boys]] are quite capable of out-blushing her, though -- particularly Tenma, and ''especially'' Eisen.
* ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'':
** Nagi gets these, particularly when she thinks she's been given a chance to be alone with Hayate and especially strong when she thinks it's a chance to give him a kiss.
** The other characters have all gotten chances at having them as well.
** Hayate in particular gets an absolutely epic one in the manga at least when [[spoiler: Maria (in 'disguise') and Hayate are riding the clock tower elevator and Maria teases him by asking if he is in love with the StudentCouncilPresident (i.e. Hinagiku). Hayate's reaction consists of a literally LuminescentBlush, much stammering, apparently trying to deny it by listing all of Hinagiku's good qualities and finally being unable to speak coherently.]]
*
[[{{Tsundere}} Haqua]] probably Integra]] ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' [[BelligerentSexualTension towards Alucard]] when he's being an ''idiot''.
* In {{Hentai}}, any girl who is um... going through the act will have this with VERY VERY few exceptions, even when they are in the dominate position. For some reason this
does it most often, and not just because she's present apply the guys, though there are some few exceptions depending the the situation.
** It pops up a lot for men
in more scenes.hentai where they're submissive or cute, such as {{Shotacon}} or BoysLove.



* Himeno of ''Manga/{{Pretear}}'' blushes a lot, but that's nothing new for a typical {{shojo}} heroine. A worse case is [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Hayate]], who displays great blushing skills while around Himeno, especially in the manga version.

to:

* Himeno of ''Manga/{{Pretear}}'' ''[[Anime/TheIdolmaster THE iDOLM@STER]]'' - Played for laughs. Chihaya blushes a lot, but that's nothing new for a typical {{shojo}} heroine. A worse case is [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Hayate]], who displays great blushing skills while around Himeno, when Miki enters the bath with her and Haruka on the Live For You OVA, though it isn't as much an embarassed blush and [[ACupAngst more]] [[GreenEyedMonster an envious]] [[BuxomIsBetter one.]]
* In ''Manga/InuYasha'', Inuyasha, Kagome, and Sango, all blush quite often,
especially in the manga version.latter since she constantly has to deal with the shameless flirting and wandering hands of her LoveInterest [[ChivalrousPervert Miroku]].
* This trope gets used heavily in ''Manga/JunjouRomantica''. Misaki and Hiroki usually get the worst of it.
* Shiro in ''Anime/{{K}}'' does this ''all'' the time. Examples include when [[HoYay Kuroh half-hugs him as he's rescuing him from HOMRA,]] and when he first meets [[PleasePutSomeClothesOn Neko.]] Kuroh gets the blush too, whenever he talks about his late Master Ichigen.
* Yurie from ''Anime/{{Kamichu}}'' does this a lot, especially when it has to do with Kenji. Her younger brother Shoukichi also tends to do this around Miko.
* Himeko of ''Manga/KannazukiNoMiko'', a lot. Although given that she's an innocent {{Moe}} ShrinkingViolet in a SchoolgirlLesbians anime, this should surprise no-one.
* The titular character of ''Manga/{{Karin}}'', who is [[TropeCodifier Luminiscent Blush incarnate]], deserves special mention. She's so [[{{Moe}} easily embarrassed]], that it's hard to catch her while ''not'' blushing. Other characters of the series even comment on it. [[FridgeBrilliance Of course, it could just be all the blood she has]].
* Ryuko Matoi from ''Anime/KillLaKill'' does this whenever she's wearing her [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman superpowered]] SailorFuku Senketsu. Understandable, considering how downright {{Stripperiffic}} it is.
* ''Manga/KimagureOrangeRoad'': Episode 2. [[IdiotHero Kyosuke]] [[OfficialCouple and]] [[{{Tsundere}} Madoka]] are washing dishes together when their hands accidentally brush together. Quickly they broke contact and kept on washing dishes, lowering their heads and avoiding eye contact. Their faces were completely red as they did so. Soooo cute.



* ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'''s [[{{Tsundere}} Taiga]] is prone to breaking out into one, especially where Yuusaku and (increasingly) Ryuuji are concerned. The full-body version occurs when [[spoiler: Ryuuji finally tells Taiga he loves her in the final episode's end credits epilogue]].
* ''{{Manga/Bleach}}'':
** Ichigo goes BRIGHT red when he first sees [[NakedOnArrival Yoruichi's nude human form]].
** Anime episode 262. When Haineko (Rangiku's zanpakuto spirit) meets a cute swordbeast named Narunosuke she blushes this way repeatedly.
* Sōsuke from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' does this a few times -- most notably during ''Anime/FullMetalPanicFumoffu''. [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sousuke_blush.jpg He does it once]] when he's defending Kaname against some pathetic Yakuza, and she threatens them that she'll call Bonta-kun over to beat them up until they cry. Of course, Sōsuke feels very embarrassed because... well, ''he's'' Bonta-kun, and he thinks she doesn't know. Another time is when Kaname dresses like a [[ChristmasCake hot, older housewife]], and pretends that she's having an affair with him. He doesn't recognize her, and [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sousuke_blush2.jpg feels extremely shy and embarrassed]], turning [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sousuke_blush3.jpg bright red]].
** In the first few episodes of ''FMP'' it's used to show that Kaname is lying when she claims she doesn't find NewTransferStudent Sōsuke attractive. That and the occasional LaughingMad scene.
* Lina Inverse of ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' has been known to do this every now and then. The best scene was in a particular episode of ''Slayers NEXT'' when Lina and Gourry were talking about how long he would stay her protector. His response led to Lina's face shining brighter than her hair.
** Amelia in one scene from the same season does one when Zelgadis saves her and Martina from a mind-controlled horde of AxCrazy civilians. ''NEXT'' in general has quite a few of these, actually. Zelgadis himself gets several (especially in the [[OnceASeason cross-dressing episode]]); and [[spoiler:Zangulus does one at his wedding in the finale.]]
** {{Squick}}y example: One flashback in season 5 shows a human Zelgadis blushing when his great-grandfather Rezo touches his cheek and commends him for helping those he heals. [[IncestIsRelative Meeeeep...]]
*** It's most likely about [[WellDoneSonGuy simply being praised by someone who most likely taught the guy everything he knew]], and whom Zelgadis used to look up to a lot. Sometimes things are, well, just THAT simple. :P
* Shy and timid Fumi from ''Manga/AoiHana'' blushes extensively throughout most of the series, but especially so when she talks to a girl she likes. Peculiarly, the only other character who perhaps blushes even more is outgoing and energetic Haruka.
* Many characters in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' have this permanently.
** In fact, the blush is often overlaid with a bright pink one when especially embarrassed or sick - see [[{{Tsundere}} Britain]] with a cold, or [[PerpetualFrowner Germany]] whenever [[TheDitz Italy]] [[HoYay is in]] [[ShipTease the room.]]
* Nodoka of ''Manga/{{Saki}}'' gets these a lot, [[LesYay especially when she's with Saki]]. She also gets these when she's on a roll while chanelling her Nodocchi persona.
* Lucia from ''Manga/VenusVersusVirus'' gets these quite often when she's with Sumire, however Sumire almost ''always'' has one on, to the point that it's lampshaded.
* ''Manga/FutureDiary'':
** Yuno is often like this whenever she talks to Yuki. Considering she's a walking {{Stalker with a Crush}}-{{Yandere}} combo, it comes off just a ''tad'' creepy. Not just that, but she also gets the blush when '''killing''' for her Yuki. Talk about creepy.
** Yuki himself tends to have this reaction to Yuno whenever she goes PantsFree or [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl casually changes clothes in front of him]].
* Akane in ''[[VideoGame/HarukanaruTokiNoNakaDe Harukanaru Toki no Naka de - Hachiyou Shou]]'' does this occasionally, often in response to Tomomasa's teasing. A few of [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys the boys]] are quite capable of out-blushing her, though -- particularly Tenma, and ''especially'' Eisen.
* Yurie from ''Anime/{{Kamichu}}'' does this a lot, especially when it has to do with Kenji. Her younger brother Shoukichi also tends to do this around Miko.
* In the ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' episode "Ah! A Demon has Come and is Creating Calamity!", Mara turns Keiichi into a Honda Cub. When Belldandy and Urd turn him back, they forget that his clothes didn't change with him, leaving him naked. Urd has an amused look on her face, while Belldandy's entire face turns a deep pink.
* [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Yuki]] from ''Manga/DanceInTheVampireBund'' gets these quite often, whether it is [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend confessing her feelings to her classmate]] or finding the director of her school reading her [[YaoiFangirl Boys Love work-in-progress]]. Of course neither said classmate (Akira) nor said director (Mina) are immune themselves.
* This occurs constantly in ''Manga/OniichanToIssho'' (official English title: ''Me & My Brothers'') to many of the characters showing deeper emotion, when they are not sporting their more lighthearted [[BlushSticker Blush Stickers]], which are used even more so. The LuminescentBlush is most effective to the reader when it is happening to Miyashita Sakura and her oldest stepbrother [[WholesomeCrossdresser Masashi]], [[spoiler:who later [[BrotherSisterIncest harbour romantic feelings for each other]]]].
* In ''Anime/TrueTears'', [[spoiler: [[TheWoobie Noe]] when Shinichirou confesses to her.]]
* Nagi of ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'' gets these, particularly when she thinks she's been given a chance to be alone with Hayate and especially strong when she thinks it's a chance to give him a kiss.
** The other characters have all gotten chances at having them as well.
** Hayate in particular gets an absolutely epic one in the manga at least when [[spoiler: Maria (in 'disguise') and Hayate are riding the clock tower elevator and Maria teases him by asking if he is in love with the StudentCouncilPresident (i.e. Hinagiku). Hayate's reaction consists of a literally LuminescentBlush, much stammering, apparently trying to deny it by listing all of Hinagiku's good qualities and finally being unable to speak coherently.]]
* This trope gets used heavily in ''Manga/JunjouRomantica''. Misaki and Hiroki usually get the worst of it.
* Go and watch any episode of ''Anime/SonicX'' where [[FoeYay Knuckles]] [[InterspeciesRomance and Rouge]] are in the same place. Knuckles ''will'' do this at some point, either from anger or embarrassment (usually the latter). His muzzle matches his fur at least a third of the time she's around, for [[{{God}} Chaos']] sake!



* Otome from ''Manga/CherryJuice'' sported one of these that covered her entire face when she awoke to find that she had fallen out of bed at some point during the night, and had spent the remainder of the time sleeping on top of her half-naked step-brother Minami. Thereafter nearly every interaction between the two involved a LuminescentBlush to some degree.
* Everyone in ''Manga/AiYoriAoshi'', given that they are varying degrees of [[ShrinkingViolet shy]] in romantic situation. Particularly funny with [[TokenMiniMoe Chika]], since it has to show through her deep tan.
* In ''Manga/InuYasha'', Inuyasha, Kagome, and Sango, all blush quite often, especially the latter since she constantly has to deal with the shameless flirting and wandering hands of her LoveInterest [[ChivalrousPervert Miroku]].
* Sara from ''Anime/OvermanKingGainer'' gets one when Gainer declares his love for her while in the middle of a battle against a mind-reading opponent, forgetting or unaware that all the stuff he says are being broadcast across ''the entire Exodus units and some''. Progresses to full-facial or full-body blush when she ran across what basically counts as ''an entire town'' and gets called out on it.
* A few characters blush that way in ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}''. Nagisa gets it most often out of all the characters.
** Pretty much everyone does this at least once; even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G74w6B15cOM&t=1m15s Sunohara.]] [[{{Tsundere}} Kyou]] manages a near-instantaneous full-face glowy blush in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbPaekU2Bh0&t=1m11s this scene.]]
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. Even '''Kamina''' manifests a blush once. While he's preaching to Simon that [[HotBlooded he should defeat his hunger with fighting spirit]], Kamina's stomach growls as well. Cue Kamina saying "Uh... me too?" followed by a blush and a nervous laugh.
** In the final episode, Simon does a blush when Nia excitedly shows him her wedding gown. Why is it emotional? Because [[spoiler:just now he's coming back from having destroyed an entire fucking UNIVERSE to get her back]]. Yes, he loves her that much. The scene is powerful because the man who was running on concentrated {{Hot Blooded}}ness for the entire arc is now doing something as mundane as blushing.
* In the highschool AU [[http://www.anymanga.com/tengen-toppa-gurren-lagann-gurren-school-edition/ Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Guren Gakuenhen]], Yoko starts blushing when Kamina comments on how well she fills out the bikini she's wearing. He misinterprets her flushed face as a mere sunburn.
--> '''Kamina:''' Huh? Why's your face red? You sunburnt already?
--> '''Yoko:''' I suppose you're just being you...
* Standard reaction of women when they see [[Anime/{{Mononoke}} The Medicine Peddler]].
* Misaka in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' is prone to doing this when around Touma or when others point out or inquire about her feelings for him. Sometimes a combination of this, her tsundereism and Touma's density leads to really funny scenarios.
** In fact, seeing Misaka's reaction to Touma being mentioned is Kuroko's BerserkButton.
** At one point in the second season, the Misaka clones are having a minor argument over #19090 deviating from the others by reading a women's magazine. When Touma innocently makes #10032 (aka Misaka Imouto) remember one of the tips in the magazine she heard from the others[[note]]the tip says that wearing a ring a man buys you on your left ring finger means you're on the winner side; Touma mentioned that #10032 should make herself visually different from the others to be more recognizable by using an accessory, "like a necklace or a '''ring'''"[[/note]], she instantly blushes.
* In ''Manga/WildFangs'', Mao has a really prominent blush after talking to so many girls all at once.
* Yuuen of ''Manga/WildRock'' is prone to this.
* In ''Manga/HanjukuJoshi'', Yae is very prone to this, since she's a relatively straight-laced NaiveNewcomer at a [[OneGenderSchool girls' school]] whose students have [[NoNudityTaboo somewhat relaxed standards of modesty.]]

* ''Anime/HanaukyoMaidTai La Verite'' episode 2. Taro and Mariel during Taro's dream.
* The otherwise VERY [[WarIsHell serious]] second season of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' has Allelujah blushing twice.
** First when [[spoiler:he's rescued from prison]] and meets up with Lockon[[spoiler:'s twin brother]] who the others failed to tell him about; Allelujah is [[KilledOffForReal understandably]] VERY surprised at Lockon's presence, then he looks from Lockon to the nonplussed Tieria and back...and then he blushes and apologizes for his outburst. [[NotSoStoic Tieria]]'s smiling response is that he hasn't changed but shouldn't.
** Second when [[spoiler:Mileina]] asks whether Allelujah and [[spoiler:Marie]] are a couple; both respond with simultaneous blushes.
* Appears all the time in ''Manga/WanderingSon''. It's essentially impossible to find a chapter of the manga where Nitori doesn't blush for at least one panel, and if he isn't blushing then someone else is.
* In the anime adaptation of ''Manga/{{Sketchbook}}'', the last episode, the shy Sora's entire face turns a luminescent red as her teacher compliments her artwork.

to:

* Otome from ''Manga/CherryJuice'' sported The above picture is of ''Manga/LuckyStar'''s resident {{Tsundere}} Kagami, who often plays this trope straight. At one of these point, she went beyond that covered to display a ''full body blush'' after "accidentally" opening a [[{{Yaoi}} suspicious]] [[{{Doujinshi}} manga]] at Comiket. Of her entire face when she awoke to find [[Lightnovel/FullMetalPanic favorite series]].
** Kanata blushed as Sou reminisced of their time together. That's right, ghosts can blush too.
* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'':
** Fate, socially uncomfortable former DarkMagicalGirl

''Anime/{{Mononoke}}''.



* Appears as early as chapter one of ''Manga/DontBecomeAnOtakuShinozakiSan'', where it was Akina's reaction hearing from the school nurse that Kaede came to the nurse's office with teary eyes, really worried about Akina's condition after she fainted from a lack of sleep. Akina blushed knowing Kaede cared a lot about her, cementing her resolve to get deeper into the otaku pit to get close to her.
* This happens to Calcifer the fire demon from ''Anime/HowlsMovingCastle'' when Sophie kisses him after he decides to come back to live with her and Howl rather than be a star again.
* Done with ''Vegeta'' of all people in ''Anime/DragonBallGT'': after shaving off his mustache [[DaddysGirl at his daughter's insistence,]] he goes ComplimentFishing about his appearance to Bulma, Goten, and Chi-Chi, who all [[DidYouGetANewHaircut pretend to not see anything different about him,]] until he loses his temper and screams at them before storming out of the room, blush-zone glowing from a combination of genuine offense that they didn't notice and embarrassment at himself for getting into such a ridiculous situation. Extra hilarious because this is the same guy who, some 25-odd years earlier, [[CharacterDevelopment tried to destroy the planet and kill these characters' families and would never have given the tiniest damn what a lowly human thought of him.]]

to:

* Appears as early as chapter one of ''Manga/DontBecomeAnOtakuShinozakiSan'', where it was Akina's reaction hearing Happens so often to the characters from ''Manga/MyBalls'' that you start to wonder if there's a fever going around.
* Hinata Hyuuga from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' whenever she so much as looks at Naruto. Sakura also sported a bright blush several times. Examples include when Naruto faced Zabuza for first time, or when she met Naruto after
the TimeSkip and he seemed more mature.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'':
** Shinji and Asuka are prone to these almost whenever they interact. Probably because Shinji is a shy boy and Asuka is a {{Tsundere}}.
*** In one episode, Asuka starts scolding Shinji during
school nurse time for forgetting their lunches, while he tries to get his side in. Toji tosses off a remark that Kaede came to the nurse's office with teary eyes, really worried about Akina's condition after she fainted from a lack of sleep. Akina they're arguing LikeAnOldMarriedCouple. Cue [[http://i.imgur.com/lhV8mJX.jpg double luminescent blush]] (they HAD kissed not many days earlier), [[http://i.imgur.com/D8UMdeN.jpg then simultaneous denial]] in perfect stereo.
*** In episode eight Asuka
blushed knowing Kaede cared when she realized Shinji was taking a lot peek at her while she was changing clothes.
*** In episode 9 Shinji noticed Asuka was sleeping by his side. He stared at her face for a while, blushing profusely as he did so.
*** Shinji gets another (and [[SomethingElseAlsoRises something else]]) when he overhears [[GirlOnGirlIsHot questionable behaviour between Misato and Asuka]] in the female area of the hot springs.
---->'''Shinji:''' ''(whilst cringing and submerging his blushing face in the water)'' [[UnusualEuphemism Thermal expansion!]] How embarrassing!!
*** Asuka flirts with Shinji by a swimming pool at one point by showing off her new bikini and "teaching" him
about her, cementing [[MemeticMutation thermal expansion]] by patting and caressing her resolve to get deeper into breasts in her bikini top, making him blush as red as anything and [[ChivalrousPervert demanding that she changes the otaku pit to get close to her.
* This happens to Calcifer
subject]].
*** After
the fire demon from ''Anime/HowlsMovingCastle'' when Sophie kisses battle against Leliel Asuka visited Shinji in the hospital. She did not want him after realizing she had come, but he decides spotted her anyway. Hurriedly she retreated, blushing as Shinji laughed.
** In one of the ''[[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Rebuild]]'' movies, Misato snaps at her ex Kaji that she is too busy
to come back do anything, especially rekindling their romance. Kaji states that she would probably never find a new lover like him, to live which she angrily questions why he should even care. He responds by [[HandsomeLech flashing a patented lady-killer smile straight at her]]. Cue Misato's momentary speechlessness and averted gaze with blush.
** The second film of the Rebuild series has a scene where Hikari approaches Asuka and shyly asks if she can sit
with her and Howl rather at lunch. She's even blushing when asking it.
* Haruka in ''LightNovel/NogizakaHarukaNoHimitsu''. She's more prone to this
than be most characters, spending a star again.
* Done with ''Vegeta''
good half of all people each episode red in ''Anime/DragonBallGT'': after shaving off his mustache [[DaddysGirl at his daughter's insistence,]] he goes ComplimentFishing about his appearance the face.
* This occurs constantly in ''Manga/OniichanToIssho'' (official English title: ''Me & My Brothers'')
to Bulma, Goten, and Chi-Chi, who all [[DidYouGetANewHaircut pretend to not see anything different about him,]] until he loses his temper and screams at them before storming out many of the room, blush-zone glowing characters showing deeper emotion, when they are not sporting their more lighthearted [[BlushSticker Blush Stickers]], which are used even more so. The LuminescentBlush is most effective to the reader when it is happening to Miyashita Sakura and her oldest stepbrother [[WholesomeCrossdresser Masashi]], [[spoiler:who later [[BrotherSisterIncest harbour romantic feelings for each other]]]].
* Sara
from a combination ''Anime/OvermanKingGainer'' gets one when Gainer declares his love for her while in the middle of genuine offense a battle against a mind-reading opponent, forgetting or unaware that they didn't notice all the stuff he says are being broadcast across ''the entire Exodus units and embarrassment at himself for getting into such a ridiculous situation. Extra hilarious because this is the same guy who, some 25-odd years earlier, [[CharacterDevelopment tried some''. Progresses to destroy the planet and kill these characters' families and would never have given the tiniest damn full-facial or full-body blush when she ran across what a lowly human thought of him.]]basically counts as ''an entire town'' and gets called out on it.



* ''Manga/HappyHappyClover'': Mallow is seen doing this twice in the series. The first is when she introduces herself to class as a new student in the first story and again in "Mallow's Heart Sours" in Volume 5 after learning [[spoiler: that Shallot likes her.]]

to:

* ''Manga/HappyHappyClover'': Mallow Himeno of ''Manga/{{Pretear}}'' blushes a lot, but that's nothing new for a typical {{shojo}} heroine. A worse case is seen doing [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Hayate]], who displays great blushing skills while around Himeno, especially in the manga version.
* Most of the characters in ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' display this at some point, but Fakir -- a brooding {{Jerk with a Heart of Gold}} is probably the best at this out of the ''entire'' cast (yes, including the girls). There are moments in the show where his ENTIRE face glows bright red, and he's one of the darkest-skinned characters in the show! For a good example, check out [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/please_put_some_clothes_on_tv_tropes.jpg the picture]] from the PleasePutSomeClothesOn trope page.
** For blush coverage, you can't beat Ahiru. Her ''whole naked body'' went completely red once. Of course, for humour and frequency both, Fakir still comes out on top there.
* This is the default expression of ''everyone'' in ''Manga/{{Saikano}}''.
** Up to the point where the blush sometimes appears to be ''coming off character' faces'' and can occasionally get quite distracting.
** The overuse of luminescent blushing in ''Saikano'' leads to the strange effect, that it doesn't even indicate, if a character is ''really'' blushing or not. Only when the face of someone turns glaring red, you can tell that he is in an emotional state that would cause a Luminescent Blush (if it wasn't already there).
* ''Anime/SailorMoon'':
** The Inner Sailor Senshi, their leader Sailor Moon and her boyfriend Tuxedo Kamen/Mask, find out that the child they've been looking after is Moon and Mask's KidFromTheFuture. The parents-to-be blush so deeply that [[HighPressureEmotion steam appears over their heads]]. It doesn't help when Sailor Mars barks:
--->'''Sailor Mars''': [[CrowningMomentOfFunny WHAT DAY, WEEK, MONTH OR YEAR DID THIS HAPPEN]]??!!!
** Infamously in the Super S movie, after killing some {{Mooks}}, [[ButchLesbian Sailor Uranus]] questions whether their plans have good or bad intentions. [[LipstickLesbian Sailor Neptune]] points out that being a child forever is a terrible idea because "[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar there are so many fun things to do as adults]]." Despite not twitching, [[{{Adorkable}} Uranus]] [[DelayedReaction slowly]] blushes and then [[ChirpingCrickets awkwardly clears her throat]].
** Sailor Mercury is knocked over in a tight alleyway to the point in which her behind is sticking up in the air. Sailor Jupiter behind her [[PantyShot glances up her skirt]] [[LesYay notably for a long while]], whilst blushing and biting her hand.
* In Act 2 of ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'', Usagi blushes when she makes a mental note that her new acquaintance Ami is cute, and Ami, having been friendless, blushes whenever Usagi's affectionate, like when she hugs Ami effusively, tells her she's cuter when she smiles, and when she agrees to be friends.
* Nodoka of ''Manga/{{Saki}}'' gets these a lot, [[LesYay especially when she's with Saki]]. She also gets these when she's on a roll while chanelling her Nodocchi persona.
* This rather common in ''Manga/SakuraTrick''. It ''is'' a series about cute girls kissing cute girls...
* Brock does this A LOT during the course of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' series.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Ranma and Akane have done this in some of their romantic moments.
--> '''Genma:''' Oooo! You're ''blushing.''
--> '''Ranma:''' Grow up, Pop.
* Yomiko Readman of ''Anime/ReadOrDie'' does
this twice in the series. The first is when she introduces herself to class OVA. Both times, it's as a new student result of fellow British Library agent Nancy Makuhari sneaking up behind her and pinching her cheeks, fiddling with her glasses or otherwise displaying some form of affection toward her. Needless to say, by the end of the series these two have hit pretty much every LesYay trope [[IncrediblyLamePun in the first story book.]]
* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' has Moka Akashiya, who easily blushes when around Tsukune. He could just say something completely random to her such as, "Really?"
and again she'll blush.'
** Moka nothing. Top blush
in "Mallow's Heart Sours" Rosa-Vam goes to [[DefrostingIceQueen Mizore]] [[AnIcePerson Shirayuki]], who may or may not up ''Manga/{{Karin}}''. Not only is she ''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Never. Seen. NOT. Blushing]]'', she is an abominable snowgirl. How her face gets ''that'' hot is a mystery.
* ''Manga/TheSeveringCrimeEdge'':
** Kiri has this expression on his face whenever he gets "excited" about cutting Iwai's hair.
** Iwai blushes often due to being easily flustered and shy.
* Kazumi Yoshida (which makes her very cute) whenever Yuji is around
in Volume ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana''. Shana doesn't lag too far behind, often coupled with her catch phrase. Especially in the S OAV.
* In the anime adaptation of ''Manga/{{Sketchbook}}'', the last episode, the shy Sora's entire face turns a luminescent red as her teacher compliments her artwork.
* ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'':
** Lina Inverse has been known to do this every now and then. The best scene was in a particular episode of ''Slayers NEXT'' when Lina and Gourry were talking about how long he would stay her protector. His response led to Lina's face shining brighter than her hair.
** Amelia in one scene from the same season does one when Zelgadis saves her and Martina from a mind-controlled horde of AxCrazy civilians. ''NEXT'' in general has quite a few of these, actually. Zelgadis himself gets several (especially in the [[OnceASeason cross-dressing episode]]); and [[spoiler:Zangulus does one at his wedding in the finale.]]
** One flashback in season
5 after learning shows a human Zelgadis blushing when his great-grandfather Rezo touches his cheek and commends him for helping those he heals. The reason? He [[WellDoneSonGuy simply is happy being praised by someone so powerful and valued]].
* Go and watch any episode of ''Anime/SonicX'' where [[FoeYay Knuckles]] [[InterspeciesRomance and Rouge]] are in the same place. Knuckles ''will'' do this at some point, either from anger or embarrassment (usually the latter). His muzzle matches his fur at least a third of the time she's around, for [[{{God}} Chaos']] sake!
* Makise Kurisu of ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate'' blushes extensively when her [[{{Tsundere}} dere side]] shows through, especially around Okabe. It's goddamn adorable. Okabe even does it himself a few times.
* Karin Koboku in ''[[Manga/AiToYuukiNoPigGirlTondeBuurin Super Pig]]'' is known for this. In some episodes, her entire face turns blood red.
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. Even '''Kamina''' manifests a blush once. While he's preaching to Simon that [[HotBlooded he should defeat his hunger with fighting spirit]], Kamina's stomach growls as well. Cue Kamina saying "Uh... me too?" followed by a blush and a nervous laugh.
** In the final episode, Simon does a blush when Nia excitedly shows him her wedding gown. Why is it emotional? Because [[spoiler:just now he's coming back from having destroyed an entire fucking UNIVERSE to get her back]]. Yes, he loves her that much. The scene is powerful because the man who was running on concentrated {{Hot Blooded}}ness for the entire arc is now doing something as mundane as blushing.
** In the highschool AU ''Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Guren Gakuenhen'' Yoko starts blushing when Kamina comments on how well she fills out the bikini she's wearing. He misinterprets her flushed face as a mere sunburn.
--> '''Kamina:''' Huh? Why's your face red? You sunburnt already?
--> '''Yoko:''' I suppose you're just being you...
* Karina/Blue Rose from ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'' has taken to developing luminescent blushes around Kotetsu once her crush on him goes from subtle to obvious enough that EveryoneCanSeeIt (except [[ObliviousToLove Kotetsu]]). Half of anything he does in her presence is liable to turn her red.
* ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'''s [[{{Tsundere}} Taiga]] is prone to breaking out into one, especially where Yuusaku and (increasingly) Ryuuji are concerned. The full-body version occurs when
[[spoiler: Ryuuji finally tells Taiga he loves her in the final episode's end credits epilogue]].
* In ''Anime/TrueTears'', [[spoiler: [[TheWoobie Noe]] when Shinichirou confesses to her.]]
* Lucia from ''Manga/VenusVersusVirus'' gets these quite often when she's with Sumire, however Sumire almost ''always'' has one on, to the point
that Shallot likes her.]]it's lampshaded.
* Appears all the time in ''Manga/WanderingSon''. It's essentially impossible to find a chapter of the manga where Nitori doesn't blush for at least one panel, and if he isn't blushing then someone else is.
* In ''Manga/WildFangs'', Mao has a really prominent blush after talking to so many girls all at once.
* Yuuen of ''Manga/WildRock'' is prone to this.
* Used copiously and to great effect in ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows''. [[{{Tsundere}} Haqua]] probably does it most often, and not just because she's present in more scenes.



[[folder:Film]]
* Sugarpuss has a revelation monologue about her growing love for Bertram in ''Film/BallOfFire'', which mentions all of the {{adorkable}} little character quirks he has that she likes about him, mentioning that he "blushes right up over his ears". This is more of an [[TakeOurWordForIt implication]] because the film is in monochrome, so the audience have no clue how and when she found out this, but there are several moments during Sugarpuss' flirting that could've caused Bertram to blush around her, meaning that he could've done it more than once as his {{crush|blush}} on her grew.

** Spike sports a particularly bright one of these in "Dragon Quest" when his pony friends start teasing him about his cute appearance.
* Pearl from WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse blushes quite a bit (and her blush is a bluish tint thanks to her skin color being pearly-white).
* "Rabbit of Seville": Happens to WesternAnimation/ElmerFudd when WesternAnimation/BugsBunny (in drag) snips away the support for his suspenders and he pulls them back up.

In two episodes of ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'', season one, this happens to Rudy twice. Once usually involves [[TallDarkAndHandsome Mako]], while in "My Big Fat Chalk Wedding" after Snap rescues Rudy from getting married to a chalk drawing season four, it's perhaps the most blatant sign of Bobbie Sue (a little girl with a her crush on him in the real world) by pretending [[SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace he was going to marry him]], and then again in "The Crush" when the girl he develops a crush on, Trina, pretends to like him back to humor him.
* This has happened to the turtles in ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987'' when April would kiss them, as well as a police officer in "The Great Boldini" when she did the same to him.
* This happens to Dum Dum in ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop'' episode "Game Of Peril" after Penelope kisses him for stealing The Hooded Claw's hat and cape, as they were the last items needed for a scavenger hunt.
* Happens all the damn time in ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'', to pretty much everybody.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "Rabbit of Seville": happens to WesternAnimation/ElmerFudd when WesternAnimation/BugsBunny (in drag) snips away the support for his suspenders and he pulls them back up.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', this is a common aspect of a character feeling embarrassed. Flattery or sheepishness gives us a BlushSticker instead.
** In the episode "Lesson Zero", the Mayor of Ponyville blushes likewise [[spoiler:after she and half the town are broken free from chasing and fighting over an old doll (on which an enchantment of attraction had been cast.)]]
** Spike sports a particularly bright one of these in "Dragon Quest" when his pony friends start teasing him about his cute appearance.
* This happens to Dum Dum in ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop'' episode "Game Of Peril" after Penelope kisses him for stealing The Hooded Claw's hat and cape, as they were the last items needed for a scavenger hunt.
* Pearl from WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse blushes quite a bit (and her blush is a bluish tint thanks to her skin color being pearly-white).
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Used on Raven quite a few times. Starfire does this a lot, but hers is ''literally'' luminescent on account of her alien physiology.
* This has happened to the turtles in ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987'' when April would kiss them, as well as a police officer in "The Great Boldini" when she did the same to him.
* Happens all the damn time in ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'', to pretty much everybody.
* Used frequently in ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}''. Evangelyne and [[IdiotHero Sadlygrove]] both do this, especially around each other. Also some between [[ShipTease Yugo and Amalia]]. Even more so in the manga.
