* Any male Elven character from ''Literature/{{LordOfTheRings}}'' is considered this. No thanks to their slender features and feminine appearance. Legolas gets it worse, especially when paired up with Aragorn.

A LipstickLesbian, in {{Yuri}}, or GirlsLove, who is openly attracted to someone can also take this role. That is, a female character who acts or looks openly masculine is actually ''more'' likely to be the uke, since this is usually equated with tomboys and immaturity.

** Mitsunari and Motonari are also often portrayed as this. Helps that those two are even more girlier in terms of physical appearance than Yukimura, albeit different in terms of personality. Mitsunari is often perceived as a very violent {{Tsundere}} type A in the fandom, and Tsundere is often perceived as an uke characteristic. In short, he is a mix of type 3 and 4. [[ItsAllAboutMe Self-obsessed]] is also one of Motonari's defining trait, and often combined with the trope VanityIsFeminine in the eyes of fangirls, resulting him to be viewed as type 5 in the eyes of YaoiFangirl(s). Also, with his many KickTheDog moments, not to mention he have [[CombatStillettos heels]] in his boots, makes him often depicted as a {{Dominatrix}} uke in the fandom. Not power bottom uke, dominatrix uke.

Added DiffLines:

** In later fanworks, however, it seems to be the other way around. Not without justification, seeing as in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', we see [[spoiler:Red and Blue as adults, and Red has become a not-quite-but-almost {{Hunk}} while Blue is a {{Bishonen}}]].
** Touya/Hilbert and N Harmonia from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' are weird examples as they tend to zig-zag this trope when paired together--while N is older, he's also much more naive and innocent (traits that the fandom likes to exaggerate to absurd levels) due to his sheltered upbringing. Hilbert is more worldly, but also younger and smaller. The two of them tend to play one role, [[{{Seme}} the other]], [[TakeAThirdOption both]] or [[AvertedTrope neither]] in fanworks as a result.

** ''Manga/NabariNoOu'' is an interesting example in that Miharu and his not-quite-love-interest Yoite [[UsefulNotes/BoysLoveNotes both have a lot of common uke traits]]. Miharu has the aforementioned physical qualities plus being withdrawn with a lot of angst; Yoite is similarly delicate, withdrawn, and troubled. Yoite generally gets labelled as the {{seme}} because he's older than Miharu, a bit taller, and more violent, but on his own he's a textbook uke (and if their relationship were ever to move into sexual territory, Miharu would almost certainly be the initiator).

* Yumi is the uke to Sachiko's (and Sei's) seme in ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'', though the series typically avoids the archetype and it keeps it on a HideYourLesbians case. Yumi helped [[TropeCodefier codeify]] the way a uke should be in a yuri series. She's shorter than both Sachiko and Sei, wears GirlishPigtails, and is prone to bouts of awkwardness.

{{Shonen}} fandom has popularized another type where the AllLovingHero functions as the uke, at least physically, where his sheer niceness and adorableness wins over other characters.

* 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 stereotypes about people in power, or Anna being more aggressive and boisterous. Though occasionally Anna gets this as well
