** Jacob Black, who follows Bella around and remains in love with her no matter how many times she tries to let him down or how married she might become. He insists to Bella that he will never imprint on anyone because he never even sees anyone but her. Jacob even drives around town trying to interest himself in other girls but it does not work. Switched up later, with the birth of Renesmee, when he imprints on here, and becomes Renesmee-sexual instead of Bella-sexual. There's some implication that Jacob had in fact always ''been'' Renesmee-sexual, and had in fact imprinted on her before she was born but thought he had imprinted on Bella.

* In ‘’Seires/AgentsOfSHIELD’’, Leopold Fitz is a {{downplayed|Trope}} as he was attracted to Skye, but after undergoing a long drawn LoveEpiphany regarding his best friend Jemma Simmons, he's exclusively Jemma-sexual, and nothing short of invasive brain washing will change that. Unfortunately, not only is this a real problem in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, it's something of an occupational hazard for S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. [[spoiler:When Fitz is plugged into the Framework, AIDA alters his memories so that she took Jemma's place in Fitz's life. This causes Fitz to not only become a sadist but to develop obsessive loyalty not to Jemma, but to AIDA, who in the Framework is known as Madame HYDRA. When his father asks if he's seeing another woman, Fitz laughs it off as though the idea were preposterous. When Fitz is woken up from the Framework, AIDA still wants to be with him, but even with two lives' worth of memories, Fitz says he can't love anyone but Jemma, which causes AIDA to snap.]]

* In ‘’Series/ThePunisher’’, when Micro gets jealous over his wife and Frank, Frank tells him about him and his own late wife, and how he never wanted to be with anyone else, finishing, "I don't want your wife," which heavily implies that even with Maria dead, he won't want any other woman either.

* [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld Chizuru]] from ''LightNovel/{{Kanokon}}'' is like this ([[LoliconAndShotacon Shotacon]]) for Kouta. It actually becomes in some ways rather disturbing, as Chizuru looks like a voluptuous young adult, but Kouta has a rather boyish appearance about him, so it's sexually inexplicit shotacon. It also frequently gets turned up to near RapeIsLove levels by Chizuru with elements of DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale thrown in.

* Lifebonded couples in Mercedes Lackey's ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' books are a variation of this. They may have been with others before they find their lifebonded, but afterwards they are definitely single target sexual. Additionally, any previous lovers are usually dismissed as casual sex/ pretty meaningless.

*** Vanyel is ''definitely'' this trope. Until Stefen shows up, his OneTrueLove has always been Tylendel, his [[FirstEpisodeSpoiler deceased first lover]]. In the intervening twenty or so years between ''Magic's Pawn'' and ''Magic's Price'', the books indicate he's had only a handful of lovers -- several of which were women who wanted to get pregnant but for whatever reason couldn't ([[spoiler:One of whom was the Queen. The King was sterile.]]) It's heavily implied that [[spoiler:Stefen was the reincarnation of Tylendel. ''Vanyel is so 'Lendel-sexual that he only falls in love again when the object of his attraction is reincarnated'']]. That's dedication.

* From ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'', most fans generally agree that Yellow is canonically Red-sexual. The Pokémon Fan Club President, though not speaking of romantic manners, at one point wonders, "Is Red all this kid thinks about?"

* Even after plenty of HintDropping on her part (most of which failed), even after getting into a rather intense argument, even after getting a few admirers of her own, in the end Serena of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' still considers Ash her "ultimate goal".

** Ginny Weasley, Ron Weasley's younger sister, is a mild example. She dated other boys, but mentioned she never did get over her romantic crush on Harry.



* Whether intentionally or not, ''Series/TheXFiles'' has ''Mulder'' (of all people) becoming this towards Scully. In early seasons, Mulder would hit on other women, make lecherous comments, etc. By the end of the series, we hadn't seen that in quite awhile--it was all directed at Scully. It becomes a hilarious (and cute) plot point in the 2008 movie "I Want to Believe." The young agent who requests Mulder and Scully's help on a case develops (or already had, it's unclear) a crush on Mulder and hits on him quite a bit. Mulder doesn't notice… but Scully does.
** Although Mulder does have a raging porn addiction.
** Scully occasionally attempts to have relationships with other men, but her interactions with them are always forced. After her one date in the first season, the only other date we see her go on in the series, she's drugged. She is, essentially, Mulder-sexual from the time she meets him on.

** The only person Albus Dumbledore ever loved was [[spoiler:[[WordOfGay Gellert]] [[EvilFormerFriend Grindelwald]]]].

** The only person Albus Dumbledore ever loved was [[spoiler:[[WordOfGay Gellert]] [[EvilFormerFriend Grindelwald]]]].Grindelwald]]. Unusually for this trope, it's been implied that this wasn't because his leftover feelings for Grindelwald made him incapable of falling in love again, but rather because the entire experience soured him on romantic love in general]].
