* ''LightNovel/CatPlanetCuties'' is a variant: While there is a female lead, she's an alien CatGirl who has no problem with sharing her boyfriend with the other haremettes.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty'': [[EmotionlessGirl Ikaros]] is the main heroine and the girl Tomoki gives most of his attention to, but he still has [[TokenMiniMoe Nymph]], [[PatientChildhoodLoveInterest Sohara]], [[DumbBlonde Astraea]] and [[LoveFreak Chaos]] as candidates.

* ''LightNovel/AccelWorld'': Haruyuki is very clearly in love with Kuroyukihime and not only she reciprocates, she confessed her feelings first from early on; the only reason she and Haruyuki are not an OfficialCouple yet is because he has too many self-esteem issues to believe any girl could ever love him. While Haruyuki is often put into a lot of various... situations with many other girls, the series never acts like anything will come of it.

* ''Manga/{{Nisekoi}}'' is a somewhat strange take on this. From the start, it's very clear Chitoge is the one who will end up with Raku; the main plot of the series is about them [[TheBeard pretending to be a couple]] to stop their families from starting a gang war and then they [[BecomingTheMask fall in love with each other for real]]. The only real rival for Chitoge was Raku's crush Onodera. However, as the series progresses more love interests are introduced and they all get plenty of focus and development, giving it a BalancedHarem vibe. Still, Raku's relationship with Chitoge gets the spotlight over anyone else.

* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' has Moka as the only girl Tsukune clearly loves. The other girls try but there's nothing they can do. [[spoiler:It gets deconstructed. Kurumu and Mizore know they don't have a chance, but they still love him... and it becomes really complicated: Kurumu's nature as a succubus means that unrequited love is literally killing her, while Mizore is a biological ChristmasCake and due to her love for him and no one else, she'll sooner or later end up ''barren''.]] Until someone suggests he MarryThemAll, that is. Other than the OfficialCouple, everyone thinks it's a great idea.

* In ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'', Nagisa and Mikan are pining after the main character Asahi, but he only has eyes for Youko, who clearly returns his feelings. [[spoiler:And in chapter 86, the two went through a RelationshipUpgrade and started dating. Mikan didn't give up even after that, since she considers "it's fine as long as she ends up as his wife", but she clearly hasn't much hope left. Nagisa did give upů or she would like to, but she has trouble completely getting over Asahi.]]



* ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'':
** "Louise The Zero" is not just the title character, but also connected to the protagonist [[MadeASlave with a magical contract]] [[AMagicContractComesWithAKiss sealed by a kiss]].
** He confessed his love to her on the second season, [[spoiler: and they even got married at the end of ''F'']]. It doesn't stop more girls joining in with each succeeding season, for a grand total of four extra girls all in all.

* ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' has a GenderFlipped version, with Tamahome as the lead [[spoiler: He actually marries Miaka later, as a [[ReincarnationRomance reincarnation]] by the name of Taka.]], and the other Seishi as supporting members.



* Keitaro and Naru from ''Manga/LoveHina'' are a very good example of this. It was obvious by the end of the first manga volume that Naru was Keitaro's "Promise Girl" and not even the "complications" that came with Mutsumi [[spoiler:(who ''also'' made a promise with Keitaro... and another with Naru...)]] and Kanako could put a dent in it. The author did ''try'' by having Naru be a couple of years younger than Keitaro (while not really a big deal by the time Keitaro moves into the Hinata Inn, it would have been a substantial age difference when they were pre-schoolers) and having her state flat-out that she wasn't the "Promise Girl" (using pretty much exactly that reasoning), but by that point Naru is clearly Keitaro's favorite regardless of whether she's Promise Girl or not. [[spoiler:Turns out she actually is; she just doesn't remember it because she was so young, and Keitaro has retconned Promise Girl's age in his own mind since ''he'' was too young to remember it properly.]]

* Keitaro and Naru A variant in ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'': It is clear to everyone, from the start, that however much he may care for the other girls he hangs out with, Issei is in love first and foremost with Rias, and his relationship with her gets the spotlight over anyone else. However, the rest of the girls still pursue him... with Rias' blessing, as she [[{{Polyamory}} doesn't mind Issei being with multiple girls]] as long as she's number one. The EX Novel shows that they do eventually end up like this: Rias is officially his wife, but several of the girls have taken the Hyoudou name (while Issei took the name Gremory), and most, if not all, of them had children with him.
