* Rumiko Takahashi has such harems in many of her works. Aside from Ranma, already mentioned above, MaisonIkkoku also has one centred around [[UnluckyEverydude Godai]]. [[TheCutie Kozue]] and [[StudentTeacherRomance Ibuki]] definitely want to jump his bones and even [[TheGadfly Akemi]] has hinted at an interest (although with her it can be hard to tell if she is serious). The only one he actually wants is [[RomancingTheWidow Kyoko]].

* Double D of ''WesternAnkmation/EdEddNEddy'' has unintentionally gained the attention of 4 by the 5 girls in the series; StalkerWithACrush Marie Kanker, PrecociousCrush from Sarah, DudeMagnet Nazz and even May Kanker from the Valentine's Day special (even if it was under an effect). The only one who has had no significant interest in him is Lee Kanker, and even she has expressed in finding him cute. It helps that he's one of the nicer and {{Adorkable}} characters in the series. Despite this, he does little to no pursuance of any of them, and is [[ShrinkingViolet often too shy to talk to girls.]]

** As of the DistantFinale, his harem consists of [[FetishFuel Akitsu]], [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship Musubi, Tsuikiumi]], [[FetishFuelStationAttendant Matsu]], [[spoiler: [[AttractiveBentGender Homura]], [[LoveFreak Kazehana]], [[JailBaitWait Kuu]], and [[InLoveWithYourCarnage Karasuba]], also with the implication that [[TeacherStudentRomance Miya]], [[BiTheWay Uzume and Chiyo]], and [[SexWithTheEx Saber and Rin]] are also tentatively involved in some capacity]], bringing his total to thirteen. It's a good thing most of them are willing to double up.

* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'': Mahiro has the affections of Nyarko, Hasta, Tamao, and later Cuuko. Nyarko is the obvious winner, but even ''she's'' unwanted to an extent thanks to her ManicPixieDreamGirl and LovableSexManiac ways clashing with Mahiro's shy and introverted personality. Tamao took herself out of the equation by [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy stepping aside]] and [[ShipperOnDeck helping Nyarko try to win]], while Hasta is a CuteShotaroBoy and Mahiro [[IncompatibleOrientation is decidedly heterosexual]]. Cuuko starts off with a PsychoLesbian crush on Nyarko, but starts advocating the threesome solution when she develops feelings for Mahiro; they both reject the idea, Nyarko because their races are mortal enemies (and she doesn't like Cuuko to begin with) and Mahiro because it involves him playing MisterSeahorse. The cherry on top of it all is that Nyarko, Cuuko, and Hasta are actually [[CthulhuMythos Nyarlathotep the Crawling Chaos, Cthuguha the Living Flame and Hastur the Unspeakable One]] in [[MoeAnthropomorphism human form]] -- and Mahiro knows his [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraft]].

** Jon Snow has one in the form of [[ActionGirl Ygritte]], [[TheTease Val]] and [[AbhorrentAdmirer Melisandre]]. Ygritte causes Jon to forsake his vow of celibacy as a man of the Night's Watch (''wink wink, nudge nudge!''). They [[StarCrossedLovers fall in love]] but [[spoiler: because he has remained loyal to the Night's Watch, he must leave her to return to Castle Black and warn them of an attack -- though Ygritte remains ever-present in Jon's thoughts]]. Val is actually Mance Rayder's companion and she and Jon share a friendly relationship but Val, as a member of the Free Folk, flirts with Jon, lets him know she is attracted to him, and non-so-subtly conveys that she would like to sleep with him but Jon doesn't give in; it doesn't help that Val is hot as hell and is basically parading in front of a quasi-monastic order of warriors. Melisandre starts approaching Jon when she begins seeing him in her fire visions, expecting to see Stannis in these visions as she did before. Jon does his best to avoid Melisandre as he finds her unnaturally intimidating in her beauty, though, despite his doubts, he eventually finds himself listening to parts of her counsel as she starts to constantly look out for him; [[http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2010/263/a/2/melisandre_by_quickreaver-d2z5z4k.jpg not that he could help it]].

** Also, Sansa Stark has one in the form of Joffrey Baratheon, Sandor Clegane, Tyrion Lannister, Dontos Hollard and Petyr Baelish; the lesser of the evils is Dontos Hollard [[note]][[spoiler:who was actually under the payroll of Lord Baelish to woo Sansa]][[/note]], who is a drunken mess, maybe Clegane, who is a BloodKnight, and Tyrion, who wants the world for her, but cannot possibly amend what his family has done to her [[spoiler:father, mother, and oldest brother[[. It doesn't help that Sansa is attracted to the people that will simply not give her the time of day or are in a position that prevents them from reciprocating (like [[TransparentCloset Loras Tyrell]], [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday Renly Baratheon]] and [[CelibateHero Waymar Royce]]).

** Harry ends up with a large number of admirers in the sixth book in the series. He also suffers from this trope in the fourth book, due to his status as a Tri-Wizard champion. Viktor Krum also, both because he's his school's champion and an internationally famous quidditch seeker.

** Princess Daenerys Targaryen has one of these, though it's mostly by the power vested in her by [[spoiler: her dragons]]. Of course, being [[HelloNurse preternaturally gorgeous]] makes for a long conga line of pretenders who are certainly not charmers (she is usually proposed to have sex/marry for ships/slaves/money, though she always declines). It includes Khal Drogo, her brother Viserys[[note]]*as it's a Targ custom to marry within one's immediate family[[/note]], Jorah Mormont, Pyat Pree[[note]]*who is more interested in the dragons[[/note]], Xaro Xhoan Daxos, Daario Naharis, Hizdahr Zo Loraq, [[spoiler:Quentyn Martell, Euron Greyjoy and a recently empowered and ultra-violent Victarion Greyjoy.]] It's worth mentioning that the last two haven't even laid their eyes in Daenerys before, which shows just how delectable she is.

** Robb Stark has one when he is [[ArrangedMarriage betrothed to a possible Frey bride at The Twins]]; a political move, Robb doesn't even get the chance to review his prospective brides as he is intent on giving war to the Lannisters; his mother didn't paint a nice picture of the Frey girls she saw there for him.
