* Tetsuo from ''Manga/{{Yuureitou}}'' is a [[{{transsexual}} trans man]] but plays this to his friend [[spoiler:and eventual boyfriend]] Taichi. He's handsome, well-dressed, and reserved GuileHero while Taichi is {{adorkable}}, is DisguisedInDrag for a chunk of the series, and is a DistressedDude. Tetsuo also has heavy BrokenAce elements and has a buttload of problems, though Taichi becoming his OnlyFriend helps. Taichi being seme material is lampshaded when Taichi imagines them having sex, with Tetsuo on top and Taichi crossdressing and on the bottom.

* {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s will often take note that Sasuke has this appearance compared to ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', although they both are equally strong and tough. This is milked more often in fanfics of the two together.
** Same with Gary/Ash in the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' fandom, and Dawn/Zoey on the [[YuriFan yuri]] side.



* Obviously, ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' could not go without referencing this - in the episode where Renge first appears and messes with the hosts' roles, the twins briefly debate her "casting". In the manga, Haruhi reads from Renge's script that although Hikaru seems to be in charge, Kaoru is more mature, and thus is the real seme. She doesn't get it, of course, but Honey seems to find it entertaining.
** Although the twins obviously can't fulfill the usual {{One Head Taller}} requirement.

* Germany when paired with Italy though Germany can sometimes play the Uke in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia''.
** To clarify: Germany is the taller and stronger one, but he is also younger than Italy and pretty much clueless when it comes to romance. The same also goes for America when paired with England, though England is often portrayed as a Seme as well, especially if he's a Pirate, Knight, Punk, or Police.



* Touya Kinomoto of ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' and ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' fame is the Seme to Yukito in most fanworks.



** On the topic of GirlsLove, an example in the {{Hentai}} ''Gintai Saimin'' is Natsuko being a ''literal'' example of the Seme in a lesbian relationship, to Hitomi's {{Uke}}.

* Though their relationship is [[HideYourLesbians very reserved]], Sachiko from ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' plays this to Yumi (and might be a TropeMaker in the YuriGenre). She's TheOjou, is tall, and is stoic but affectionate while Yumi is the more emotional, younger looking and awkward girl who wears GirlishPigtails.



* Craig Tucker in almost every Series/SouthPark fanfiction. Especially in ''FanFic/{{I came a long way to see you}}''
** Stories that pair Stan and Craig when they aren't explicitly rivals (and some where they are) tend to make one of them an {{Uke}} through {{Wimpification}} due to the fandom usually having them both as {{Seme}}'s. A few good authors occasionally balance the pairing out, but a lot of them don't.

** Stan is often a uke because of his cute looks and emotional nature, except when he's paired with Kyle who is usually given a heavy dose of {{wimpification}} (it could be argued with their canon personalities Kyle is closer to the "seme" stereotype).

This is milked more often in fanfics of the two together. Some subvert this and present him as a uke though (even when paired with ActionGirl Sakura), making him into a secret softy and a {{tsundere}}.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':
** When it comes to Ash/Gary, Gary is almost always written in-line as a stereotypical seme. He's more cocky and "cool looking" than the cuter, {{keet}} Ash.
** Zoey is always this to Dawn. She has a prince motif while Dawn has a princess one, and Dawn is the more feminine and inexperienced Coordinator.

In yuri, or GirlsLove, an OneeSama who is openly attracted to someone can also take this role. Ironically, a female character who acts or looks openly masculine is actually ''less'' likely to be the seme, since this is usually equated with tomboys and immaturity. The OneeSama is likely to be more aggressive and mature, leaning towards TheVamp or FemmeFatale in appearance.

** Morinaga of ''TheTyrantFallsInLove'' is not only the younger and cuter partner, but a good-natured, long-suffering romantic who's put up with Souichi's temper and homophobia for years in the hope of having his feelings reciprocated someday. In fact, he would probably be the uke if Souichi wasn't so deeply in denial that Morinaga has to make almost all of the emotional and sexual advances.

* Both Asami and Feilong in the ''FinderSeries''. (Page picture.) Feilong is somewhat feminine-looking (being a LongHairedPrettyBoy), but he's 100% seme to Akihito. (There's hints he'd like to be uke to Asami, though.)

* In ''{{Genshiken}}'', Ogiue writes and draws [[BoysLove yaoi]] {{doujinshi}} about her fellow club members, casting Madarame as the passive {{uke}} and Sasahara as the aggressive {{seme}}. [[spoiler:Though she is mortified when Sasahara finds out, he accepts it as a work of art, not a projection on him.]]

* [[DistaffCounterpart Lesbian verion]] in ''Film/BlueIsTheWarmestColour'', where Emma is the dominant partner in the relationship and is apparent that she owns the house they live in. She is also the top in their sexual encounters.
