A character associated with the BoysLoveGenre, the Uke (or "Neko" in Girl's Love works) makes up the "receiving" half of a relationship. Typically the [[OppositesAttract polar opposite]] of the {{Seme}}, the Uke is sometimes [[InTouchWithHisFeminineSide more feminine]] than his counterpart; just how much "more feminine" this can be varies, from simply looking more childish or "[[{{Bishonen}} beautiful]]", or being more emotional and/or [[LuminescentBlush blushy]] or just less overtly macho than his partner, to, on the other end of the spectrum, having outright [[WholesomeCrossdresser crossdressing habits]]. Almost always, the Seme is OneHeadTaller than the Uke (or at least a few inches). So prevalent is this custom that a well-known (and oft derided) process in SlashFic is {{Wimpification}}, or feminizing one half of a slash pairing to fit this character type regardless of canon characterization. A major draw of the BoysLove is that you get two hot guys for the price of one, so in the more explicit titles expect to see lots of his [[{{Fanservice}} cute little bod]].

* An example of a [[strike: almost]] perfect uke is Sawada Tsunayoshi from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn''. C'mon, you know he's a bigtime uke when he's paired with 1-year-old ''Reborn'' and ''still'' bottoms. It doesn't help matters that [[SatelliteLoveInterest the girl he has a crush on]], who is supposed to be super-effeminate and "beautiful," looks like his identical twin...
* Unusually, Elsa from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' is usually portrayed as one of these in femslash works (especially [[IncestYayShipping Elsanna]] ones). It could stem from her somewhat anxious and awkward personality, the [[PowerfulPeopleAreSubs stereotypes about people in power]], or Anna being more aggressive and boisterous. Though occasionally Anna gets this as well.

* ''Manga/{{Yuureitou}}'' has Taichi playing this to Tetsuo. UnluckyEverydude Taichi is commonly a DistressedDude, can be rather awkward, is HollywoodHomely, and has LovableCoward aspects. Tetsuo, on the other hand, is a confident, mysterious, and {{Bishonen}} ByronicHero. It becomes even more noticeable when Taichi is DisguisedInDrag and he finds himself liking the idea of being Tetsuo's submissive crossdressing lover. At one point, Taichi imagines him and Tetsuo sleeping together and at first sees himself crossdressing and on the top, since Tetsuo is [[{{Transsexual}} assigned-female-at-birth]], however Taichi comes to the conclusion that it wouldn't work like that.

* In ''Film/BadEducation'', this is the role Juan plays in most of his relationships. He's submissive and compliant to Enrique in a CastingCouch situation where Juan agrees to sleep with Enrique in exchange for a role in Enrique's film. Juan's relationship with Sr Berenguer is similar, since Berenguer is his SugarDaddy, but Juan is more of a {{Tsundere}} in this case. [[spoiler:Although subverted when it's revealed that Juan is manipulating both of them to get what he wants.]]

** Neji's LongHairedPrettyBoy looks usually turn him into this in yaoi fan-works (and occasionally Neji/Tenten ones too).



** Stan is often made into a uke due to his sensitivity and his design. The main exception seems to be with Kyle, who is near always a uke in ships (with his personality often being changed to seem {{tsundere}}).

* ''Manga/LuckyStar'': Expect a higher chance that Kagami will be this if she's paired with Konata. Part of this reasoning comes from the AnimalMotifs scene in the anime with Konata being a fox, and Kagami being a rabbit.
