Added DiffLines:

** The male Avatar in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' is subject to this now and then due to his canon displays of vulnerability, especially during the ''Conquest'' path.
*** Leo and Takumi both get this quite a bit, especially in fics that pair them together, Takumi due to his nightmares and horrifically low self-esteem and Leo due to his troubled childhood in Nohr's DeadlyDecadentCourt.

** [[MadBomber Deidara]]. Sure, he's got [[BlondeGuysAreEvil long blonde hair]] and is Sasori's partner, but he's ''not'' the caricature of a woman, yet the way he carries on in some fanfics you'd think he was about to give birth. This also happens to Itachi and Sasori sometimes.

** Even Saix isn't immune! While most slash fics about him have him as the Seme, when he gets paired with [[MinionShipping Xemnas]] he becomes little more than a pet. [[spoiler: Thanks to the discovery that both of them are possessed by [[BigBad Master Xehanort]], the idea of any kind of sexual relationship between them becomes [[NoYay very creepy]], regardless of whose on top.

* Oh, [[Anime/YuGiOh Yugi]]. How are you ukefied? Too many ways to name. In canon, he started out as a loser who was picked on a lot but still had enough backbone to stand up when people he considers friends are being attacked and [[CharacterDevelopment over time]] grew more confident thanks to his [[ShadowArchetype darker]] [[BigBrotherMentor Pharaoh]] [[TricksterMentor friend]]. Also probably a [[ChessMaster master strategist]] able to rival Napoleon and Lee ([[FridgeLogic if you take into account that all he does is play strategy games]]). But if you read fanfiction, he's a spineless little wimp who's always being raped or abused by everyone near him until "[[FanNickname Yami]]" comes along and saves him. Or Yami kidnaps him and does the raping, torturing and abusing himself until [[StockholmShnozzing Yugi falls in love with him]] and then he turns good and Yugi defends his actions to others saying that Yami's "misunderstood". Or when [[spoiler:the Pharaoh leaves]], Yugi becomes so emotionally unbalanced that he kills himself ''despite saying in the manga and anime that he didn't need him anymore''. That unfortunately sums up pretty much 99.9% of ''Anime/YuGiOh'' fanfiction, 99.99% if you substitute Ryou Bakura and the Spirit of the Ring for Yugi and the Pharaoh.

* ''WickedLovely'': Quite a bit of Irial/Niall does this with Niall. And Seth gets this with pretty much everyone, even more than Niall. He might be pretty quiet and stuff in canon, but he most likely could stand up for himself if he needed to. Fanfic... disagrees.

* In ''ASongOfIceAndFire'', one of Jon Snow's subordinates is a handsome young man known as Satin, who was previously a prostitute, having been pimped out by his mother as a boy. Fan perception is that Satin is a CampGay PrettyBoy who is always swooning over Jon. However, in-text, there's no indication of Satin's sexual preference (a different issue than the gender(s) he was forced to sleep with), and while Satin certainly likes and respects Jon (as a HeroicBastard, Jon defends fellow "outcasts"), there is not much evidence of this being anything but platonic.

** England often goes from the snarky, yet also sensitive {{Tsundere}} he is in canon, to becoming a weepy, emotionally-needy mess who pines endlessly for [insert: America, France, Canada, etc]. and is more than once the target of [insert: Russia, France]'s violations/torture/etc. so [insert: America, France, Canada, etc]. can literally pull a BigDamnHeroes to save him and let the [[HurtComfortFic Hurt/Comfort]] start. Either that, or America is a BastardBoyfriend to him and England becomes a weepy mix of PurityStu and LoveMartyr, while the artist expects everyone to believe that theirs is as completely healthy and cute relationship. When it comes to sex, England is also often made a virgin and awkward or even oblivious about sex, when in canon he's [[CovertPervert so much of a pervert]] that it puts France to shame. Also, some fanartists tend to draw him with extremely feminine hips...

* [[VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi Battler Ushiromiya]], in both Japanese and American fanart. Usually the result of being turned into Beatrice's furniture and getting tortured.
