* You'd think that ''ArmyOfTwo'', a game that centers on teaming-up between two equally badass, equally competent, equally [[RatedMForManly manly]] ex-Army Rangers who are now PrivateMilitaryContractors would be able to avert this trope. Unfortunately, what little ''ArmyOfTwo'' SlashFic there exists happens to have a significant bias towards making Salem (the slightly smaller member of the duo) the receptive partner in any sexual encounter. In all fairness, Salem's characterization is rarely derailed into attitudinal submissiveness, but he's still made the "bottom" in sexual encounters more often than not because [[OneHeadTaller he's shorter than Rios]]. Because in real life, the taller dude always tops, [[UnfortunateImplications and because the taller you are the more "alpha" you are, and sex is really about establishing a social pecking order rather than something that happens between two people that like each other]]. Not to mention the FanArt which makes Salem into a {{Bishonen}}.

** This happens to Kamui as well. At first, he's a {{Jerkass}} who is cold to Kotori and Fuuma and is irritated at Hinoto's meddling for getting him to choose his destiny. Until he became a Dragon of Heaven with Fuuma being the Dragon of Earth, this goes downward where his ass gets constantly hit by Fuuma. Though in the manga and anime the only enemies that he actually defeated are the MenInBlack [[spoiler:that dark!Hinoto sent to him]] and in the movie, he managed to hold off against two Dragons of Earth. So, he's not exactly weak considering that he's the MessianicArchetype. But he gets to always be molested to Fuuma.

** And there's [[CuteBruiser Finland]], too. While his partner and most fan-popular LoveInterest [[{{Kuudere}} Sweden]] ''is'' quite taller than him, it doesn't explain why doujinshi and fanwork twist Finland into a little weepy {{Keet}} who may look even younger than ''Sealand'', when Finland's character profile states that he has the look and the attitude of a 20 year old, while Sweden is 21. The way they're drawn in [[{{Shotacon}} some doujinshis]], you'd think they're something closer to [[{{Squick}} 12 and 26]], respectively. Yes, the pair invoke so many BoysLoveTropes as is that it's that much easier for fans to {{flanderize}} Finland's {{uke}} role along those lines. That's still not an excuse, as the charm of the pairing is seeing a huge guy like Sweden fitting the HouseHusband archetype ''far'' more than the slightly waifish Finland.

** [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Silver]] tends to get this and/or be written as an AggressiveSubmissive, in spades, in fanworks [[{{Shotacon}} pairing him with Lance]], and even [[ToyShip with the player characters]] (including Lyra and Kris), albeit being somewhat less common. His actions often being interpreted as that of a Tsundere, being one of the {{Woobie}}s of the franchise, and [[TookALevelInKindness majorly taking several levels in kindness]] towards the end of the main story, especially in the remakes, only fuels this.

* There's a comic/series of comics on [=deviantART=] (pre-"My time here is ogre" edit) that turns [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Shadow]] from a quietly brooding badass into a constantly sobbing wreck [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext when speaking with]] [[{{Crossover}} his friend]] {{Shrek}}.

* Sanji from ''OnePiece'' is often made into a weepy uke because of his {{Bishonen}} looks and attempts to be sensitive to women, regardless of the fact that Sanji is frequently a {{jerkass}} to his male crewmates and is nowhere near unable to stand up for himself.

* Done occasionally with Sousuke from ''Lightnovel/FullMetalPanic'' -- most prevalently in certain slash fanfiction. Granted, his being an {{Uke}} ''was'' {{Canon}} and pretty much confirmed by [[WordOfGod Shouji Gatou]] (Sousuke's status as a "receiver" if he were to be in a homosexual relationship was outright stated in one of the side stories that Gatou wrote). However, some fanfiction takes this UpToEleven, where Sousuke becomes ''much'' more emotional and... [[{{OOC}} PMS-y]] (very unlike TheStoic he is)-- to the point where he actually seems to be depicted as a [[{{Tsundere}} male version of Kaname]].

* Ciel of ''Manga/BlackButler''. Way too many people make him seem very uke, most likely due to his age and the fact that he is often paired with his demon BattleButler Sebastian. When you look at Ciel's actual personality traits, it's very clear while he has a small amount of inexperience/naïveté, he'd never be the blushy/weepy/submissive uke he's often portrayed as in fan works.

** Rohan Kishibe is an arrogant {{Jerkass}} who hates Josuke in Canon, in fanart and doujinshi, he's a blushing {{Tsundere}} who almost never tops. This is likely the result from [[OneHeadTaller being shorter]] than Josuke and falling into a DistressedDude role in the Highway Star arc, having to be saved by Josuke, no less.

** Josuke also isn't exempt from this. Though he is submissive and passive in his first scene, he gets his BerserkButton breached and shows his temper and how strong his Stand is. Likewise, he did also need rescuing at one point but so did Koichi and his mother, and not only doess he have the [[AndIMustScream final shot against his kidnapper]], but saves his saviour as well. Throughout the story, he becomes more confident and assertive. Still, works, where he's the uke, tend to up his submissiveness and make him quite meek and shy. Sometimes he's even delegated as a [[DistressedDude damsel who needs saving]] or, in [[TheAntagonist Kira's]] case, a helpless damsel. His case is also like Jonathan in that he's canonically the [[NiceGuy second nicest]] JoJo after [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth Jonathan]].

** Nightcrawler, for reasons as obvious as Legolas from LOTR, tends to fall victim of this in fan fiction. Lets not forget that Kurt has been shown that he's capable of being a badass but in the land of fan fiction, especially when shipped with Wolverine, he plays the role of a damsel in distress who had to depend on Logan to get him out of a jam.
** Cyclops too, especially when paired with Wolverine but it is also a big theme in the growing number of fanworks that pair him with Captain America. Although to the writers' credit they do mix it up with him; they tend to expand on the traits he shows in canon (read: AmbiguousDisorder) to try to make him seem more innocent, especially in the realm of sex, which normally takes the form of him not understanding that provoking the homophobic mutant haters by flirting is a bad idea. This stops making sense when in the narrative of the story he is outright mentioned as having slept with other men.

** This is done ''constantly'' to Loki, with whom it is especially absurd. Far from being the superhumanly strong and superhumanly robust life-long warrior and powerful sorcerer he is in the films, he's written as fragile and passive, unable to defend himself and in constant need of protection. Going hand-in-hand with this is the extreme physical modification he undergoes: he's invariably described and illustrated as tiny and dainty in spite of the fact that he actually towers over most of the Avengers and only Thor and Hulk can take him in a fight. The popular pairing of Tony Stark/Loki nearly always makes Loki the uke and, hilariously, tends to draw Tony (5'8") as the big manly man looming over a delicate, helpless Loki (6'2"). Keep in mind that this Loki in the MCU has not only gave the Avengers a run for their money but also came close to killing Thor. The guy even succeeded in taking the throne of Asgard. Yet in fics relating to him you'd swear that he's some fragile piece of glass who'd shatter at the slightest physical contact.

Ukefication is generally brought on by the Master, [[Series/{{Torchwood}} Jack Harkness]], or Donna Noble.

** Horikawa Kunihiro is extraordinarily devoted to Izuminokami Kanesada, to the point where even the character designer says he has many housewife tendencies, but he's not above tricking him into doing his own work, and he does have a mouth on him. Not that you'd get that from the fanworks, where he agrees with everything his dear Kane-san says and swoons over him at every turn.

** In most cases, the hot-blooded and somewhat impulsive Izuminokami Kanesada becomes Horikawa Kunihiro's bratty, needy charge or is a complete submissive in the sheets to either him or other Touken Danshi. It has a lot to do with his relative youth in comparison to many of the other swords, and his less mature personality mutating into a spoiled persona.

Not that you'd get that from the fanworks, where he agrees with everything his dear Kane-san says and swoons over him at every turn. In other cases, it's exactly the opposite; Izuminokami becomes Horikawa's bratty, needy child or is his complete submissive in the sheets.

** Prompto gets it the worst of the lot, being that he's a short blond {{Keet}} {{Bishonen}} who kinda looks like Cloud Strife. He does [[StepfordSmiler have genuine self-confidence issues beneath his extroverted persona]], but eventually overcomes them with a little pushing from his friends, only ever cries in the main game ''once'' (during a time when literally everyone else is too), and is plenty capable of taking and dishing snark in equal measure. And while the game indicates he's the poorest fighter of the team, it's only he's inexperienced, not because he's physically weak. He's actually more muscular than [[MusclesAreMeaningless Noctis]], and he's strong enough to beat enemy soldiers to death with his bare hands. However fangirls frequently gloss over this and exaggerate him into a spineless frail weepy mess and literal DamselInDistress who falls apart without Noctis's constant validation, leading to hot steamy sex which frequently ends in Prompto [[MisterSeahorse becoming pregnant]].

And while the game indicates states he's the poorest fighter of the team, it's only because he's inexperienced, not because he's physically weak. He's actually more muscular than [[MusclesAreMeaningless Noctis]], and he's is strong and skilled enough to beat enemy soldiers to death with his bare hands. However fangirls frequently gloss over this and exaggerate him into a spineless frail weepy mess and literal DamselInDistress or an infantile [[TheIngenue Ingenue]] who can't even hurt a fly and falls apart without Noctis's constant validation, leading to hot steamy sex which frequently ends in Prompto [[MisterSeahorse becoming pregnant]]. They forget it's ''his'' job to protect Noctis, not the other way around.

** Prompto gets it the worst of the lot, being that he's a skinny short blond {{Keet}} who kinda looks like Cloud Strife. He does [[StepfordSmiler have genuine self-confidence issues beneath his extroverted persona]], but eventually overcomes them with a little pushing from his friends, only ever cries in the main game ''once'' (during a time when literally everyone else is too), and is plenty capable of taking and dishing snark in equal measure. And while the game indicates he's the poorest fighter of the team, it's because he has less formal combat training, not because he's physically delicate. In fact [[AllThereInTheManual the anime]] shows he exercises vigorously, to the point he actually has ''more'' visible muscle definition than [[MusclesAreMeaningless Noctis]]. However fangirls frequently gloss over this and exaggerate him into a spineless frail weepy mess and literal DamselInDistress who falls apart without Noctis's constant validation, leading to hot steamy sex which frequently ends in Prompto [[MisterSeahorse becoming pregnant]].
