* ''Series/GameOfThrones''[='=] Renly Baratheon's in a sexual relationship with his brother-in-law Loras Tyrell so obvious that one night [[TheBeard Renly's wife Margaery]] offers her brother's help to "''get you started, I know he wouldn't mind… or I can turn over and you can pretend I'm him''!"

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/HaltAndCatchFire'', Haley is still mostly in the closet by the time the series ends, with her older sister Joanie being the only person to whom she has explicitly come out, but Joe, Cameron, Donna, and Gordon have all figured it out by then.

* [[spoiler:Captain Holt]] in ''Series/BrooklynNineNie'' is openly gay, however, while under witness protection, he has to pretend to be straight. This results in him acting much like this, since he apparently believes that "thick, weighty breasts" are the sole standard of female beauty for straight men.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/337181/rainbow-dash-comes-out-to-her-friends Rainbow Dash Comes Out to Her Friends]]'' it turns out everyone in Dash's circle of friends automatically identified her as a lesbian, from her rainbow mane and tail, to the fact she moved to Ponyville (a haven for same-sex couples), to the fact she keeps incessantly hitting on and awkwardly invading the personal space of every female around her if she as much as touches a drop of booze.

* Riley Freeman plays with this on ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks''. Everyone but Riley knows Gangstalicious is gay. Riley concludes that Gangstalicious can't be gay because [[YouFailLogicForever he likes Gangstalicious's music and he's not gay]]. Gangstalicious's new fashion line convinces Granddad that Riley is gay. Huey [[BatmanGambit takes advantage of Granddad's suspicions to get his own room]] and then, at the end of the episode, Riley, who is EIGHT, tearfully confesses his homosexuality to Granddad, thinking that he must be gay [[InsaneTrollLogic because he was a fan of Gangstalicious]]. The jury is still out on him.

Added DiffLines:

* Makoto in ''WebAnimation/FiftyPercentOff'' has painfully obvious feelings for Haru, but still denies that he's his boyfriend. This may have something to do with the HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood he suffered at the hands of his father, who is clearly disappointed by his effeminate son.

** [[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.
