* ''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.

* In ''Webcomic/TheNoordegraafFiles'' THEO, (who is male) has this when he's walked in on by a girl while shirtless. (No, the GIRL is not the shirtless one. Theo is.) He hastily covers his chest with a blanket, even though, you know, he's male.

* Mahiru Inami from ''Manga/{{Working}}'' has this constantly. It doesn't help that she's also always anxious about [[{{ApologeticAttacker}} uncontrollably]] [[{{CuteBruiser}} punching]] any men near her. When attempting to hand out a Valentine's Day gift, she gets so nervous she partially melts the chocolate she's holding.

* Shy and timid Fumi from ''Manga/SweetBlueFlowers'' 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.

* Li Syaoran of ''Manga/CardCaptorSakura'', who gives the title character a run for her money with the amount of screen time he spends as a human tomato. Syaoran's blushing potential can create shades surpassing tomatoes and even beetroots.
** ''Especially'' his blush when Sakura hugged him for the first time in the anime - he never managed to pull anything quite like ''that'' again.

* 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]].

* Ohno, the subverted AloofDarkHairedGirl of ''Manga/{{Genshiken}}'' appears to have a constant blush in both the {{Manga}} and {{Anime}} versions. It remains even during most of her [[{{Cosplay}} cosplaying]] sessions, but her embarrassment seems to feed her confidence. Ogiue on the other hand hates the fellow club [[{{Otaku}} otakus]], in typical Type A {{Tsundere}} behaviour, but blushes profusely when [[YaoiFangirl thinking of her beloved yaoi]]. Ogiue's normally implacable and stoic facade makes the LuminescentBlush quite significant of her internal conflicts over her {{Otaku}} nature, rather than some attempt at a throwaway {{Moe}} visual gag.

* ''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 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.

* 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 not apply the guys, though there are some few exceptions depending the the situation.
** It pops up a lot for men in hentai where they're submissive or cute, such as LoliconAndShotacon or BoysLove.
* Though everyone blushes at one time or another in ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'', Rena and Keiichi (manga only) blush a lot..And I do not mean their scared blushes.

At one point, she went beyond that to display a ''full body blush'' after "accidentally" opening a [[{{Yaoi}} suspicious]] [[{{Doujinshi}} manga]] at Comiket. Of her [[Lightnovel/FullMetalPanic favorite series]].

* 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!

* 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).

** 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]].

* 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!

* 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 ''Fanfic/XMenTheEarlyYears'', Scott Summers tends to have this effect on Jean Grey.
-->Jean eyed him coldly for a moment. "You know, between changing in the locker room and the bad guys pretty much blowing our uniforms off, there's possibly about six inches of you that I haven't seen."\\
"I didn't know you looked," Scott answered smoothly.\\
Jean felt her cheeks get warm. "I never... I didn't mean... I just catch a glimpse... You're enjoying this way too much, Summers," she fired back, embarrassed.\\
"Maybe just a little," Scott replied. "It's not like you said I have a cute butt." At that, Jean felt herself get a little redder. Damn her fair complexion. Great, just what she needed; another reason to get a glimpse of his butt. "It's not like the thought of a hidden tattoo might turn you on," he continued. "Or that bad boys push your buttons right?" Now, Jean could feel her face flame.
