** [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp12312001.shtml Inverted]] early on with Monette, although it didn't last forever. (She eventually realized she's bisexual.)
** PlayedWith: a minor character named Mikaela, who was friends with the group in a flashback arc, was very obviously into girls (at least, it became obvious [[InVinoVeritas when she was drunk]]). However, she was so close to Davan that [=PeeJee=] was surprised to learn that she wasn't into guys too.

* Jay of Franchise/TheViewAskewniverse's infamous response to being accused of fantasizing about other men during masturbation: "Dude, not all the time!" Among many other incidents, including Silent Bob breaking his silence in one of the deleted scenes of ''Film/ClerksII'' to accuse him of being "a deeply-repressed gay man". WordOfGod is that the character is actually closet bi.

** At first Willow and Tara are this to the viewers, as tons of implications are dished out long before they outright say anything. The rest of the cast who don't interact with the two of them together much are far more surprised to find out. Lampshaded when [[ItMakesSenseInContext Faith in Buffy's body]] figures it out within minutes of meeting them together.

* ''Webcomic/{{Spinnerette}}: Mecha Maid's attraction to the title character is incredibly evident to everyone but Spinnerette herself. When she finally gets the nerve to ask Mecha Maid whether or not she's attracted to her, Mecha Maid chooses to lie and tells her that their relationship is strictly friends.
** Spinnerette doesn't buy it, though, and when she confronts her again, Mecha Maid finally admits it.
** Spinny herself is an… odd case. She showed absolutely zero signs of any sort of attraction to girls until "Bottom Lefty" ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the bottom left]] of her newly-grown hands) started getting grabby with Mecha Maid. Folks who knew her pointed this out, since Bottom Lefty ran almost purely on her subconscious and had to be "reigned in" sometimes, showing that the attraction was mutual. [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday She wasn't having any of it]] for a while, until she decided to "give it a shot" under the caveat that if it didn't work, it wouldn't wreck their friendship and superhero partnership. [[spoiler:They're now a perfectly happy couple and totally open about their relationship, in-costume at least, though Spinny's still not totally sure if she pulled a BiTheWay on ''herself'', or if it's just that Mecha-Maid's special]].

* Private Franklin Delano Donut from Red vs. Blue. He frequently acts in a flamboyant manner and makes sexual innuendos, especially about gay sex, though he doesn't seem to realize the nature of these innuendos. He is shown with stereotypically "gay" characteristics and has pink armor, though he insists that it is "lightish red", a metaphor for his cluelessness or repression of his sexuality. As most of the show's characters are based on tropes, Donut follows this one to a T.

* Dean Craig Pelton from ''Series/{{Community}}''. Also a closeted [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom Furry]] and very fond of playing dress-up in costumes ranging from MachoCamp to [[DragQueen Drag]]. Although it's played with; in one episode, Pelton struggles with and is offended by the implication that he must come out as gay in order to improve the school's reputation... because his sexuality is far too complex to be summed up as merely homosexual. He actually appears to be very very omnisexual.

* Creator/StephenColbert's [[Series/TheColbertReport right-wing persona]], in a perfect satire, indicates regularly that [[GayConservative he's attracted to men]] while vigorously denying it, and the [[HerCodeNameWasMarySue character's cartoon]] features a hero modeled after himself who regularly hops into bed with women, all of whom say "You've obviously had hundreds of girlfriends" and just about all of whom turn out to actually be man-eating monsters. In one episode, they show a diagram of his brain; one section is labeled "repressed homosexual urges".
