* In the anime of ''VisualNovel/KamigamiNoAsobi'', Apollon is clearly the lead, though Takeru also has potential with Yui. Tsukito and Hades don't seem to be all that interested in her, and Loki and Balder [[spoiler: have each other]]. It's half way between this and a BalancedHarem.

A Subtrope of the HaremGenre, a RomanticComedy with one male protagonist, one female LoveInterest, and a bunch of female side characters who also happen to be in love with the protagonist.

* ''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 they are not an OfficialCouple yet is because Haruyuki 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/AkatsukiNoYona'' may qualify as a gender-swapped version of this, though its status as a reverse harem is arguable. Yona has [[spoiler: Hak; Kija; Jae-ha; Tae-jun; and even possibly the series' antagonist, Su-won; all in love with her.]] Despite this, [[ChildhoodFriend Hak]] is pretty clearly pegged as the main love-interest from the very start. Ironically though, he actually spends a sizable chunk of the story as a HopelessSuitor.

One of the causes for this set-up might be if it is the adaptation of a VisualNovel, where every girl got the focus of attention in her own route, but only one route got an adaptation.

* ''LightNovel/TheAsteriskWar'': From early on, Ayato chooses Julis as the girl he loves and wants protect the most. He may have several other girls vying for his attention, but it's obvious none of them have a chance.



* ''LightNovel/ChivalryOfAFailedKnight'' has Ikki and Stella [[FirstKiss getting together]] by the end of the first volume of the light novel / first arc of the anime adaptation. The other girls still develop romantic feelings for the protagonist, but, while he cares about them, the romance is one-sided.



* ''LightNovel/HorizonInTheMiddleOfNowhere'' has a similar variant to ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'': It's perfectly clear to everyone from the beginning that Toori only has eyes for Horizon. His other two friends Asama and Nate also have feelings for him, but they never pursued him because they know he will always love Horizon first and foremost. Later in the light novels, however, Horizon gives Asama and Nate her blessing for them to further their relationship with Toori, even [[{{Polyamory}} proposing them to actively share him and live the four together]] so Toori can have the emotional support he needs from the people who love him the most.



* LightNovel/RakudaiKishiNoEiyuutan has Ikki and Stella [[FirstKiss getting together]] by the end of the first volume of the light novel / first arc of the anime adaptation. The other girls still develop romantic feelings for the protagonist, but, while he cares about them, the romance is one-sided.

* ''Manga/{{Nisekoi}}'': From the start, it's very obvious Chitoge is the girl 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]]. Raku may have about 5 other girls vying for him, but only [[RomanticFalseLead Onodera]] seems to actually have a chance against Chitoge. Even then, no matter how much he tries to deny it, Raku's preference for the latter becomes painfully obvious even to him.

* ''Manga/AiYoriAoshi'' is clearly this, as the lead girl Aoi has already won within the first few episodes. It's just that she and the male lead Kaoru feel the need to keep their relationship a secret for various and pretty complicated reasons, so the rest of the harem doesn't know this.

* In ''Manga/BrynhildrInTheDarkness'', there's no doubt Kuroha is the only girl Ryouta truly loves. It doesn't stop the other girls from trying, but it's clear they can't win against Kuroha.



* ''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.

* ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty'': [[EmotionlessGirl Ikaros]] is in the lead and she's [[CantActPervertedTowardALoveInterest the only girl that Tomoki won't act perverted toward]], but Tomoki still has [[TokenMiniMoe Nymph]], [[PatientChildhoodLoveInterest Sohara]], [[DumbBlonde Astraea]] and [[LoveFreak Chaos]] as candidates.

* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' has Moka as the only girl Tsukune clearly loves. The other girls try but there's nothing they can do. Until someone suggests he MarryThemAll, that is. Other than the OfficialCouple, everyone thinks it's a great idea.

* ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' started out as this, with Lala and Haruna getting all the screen time, with WordOfGod claiming they were intended to be the main focus of the story. However, as time went on, more girls were introduced and screen time evened out and it became much less clear who Rito would choose (it was a bit Lala-centric at first); in other words, it evolved into a BalancedHarem. In fact, the sequel To Love-Ru Darkness, is aiming for the MarryThemAll (or at least, one of the harem members is actively trying to make it happen) and Lala and Haruna have been OutOfFocus, aside from ADayInTheLimelight stories.

* ''Manga/{{Nisekoi}}'' is a somewhat strange take on this. From the start, it's very obvious Chitoge is the girl 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 thing distracting Raku is his crush on 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.
