** The infamous doujinshi made by Creator/{{CLAMP}} ([[{{Expy}} and by extension]], Manga/{{Wish}}) does this to Kakyoin. While a pretty mild case compared to most of the other examples on this article due to being parody, it's still pretty cringe-inducing for many [=JoJo=] fans to see such a badass and strong-willed character acting so OutOfCharacter, to the point of being referred to as Jotaro's "wife" and even getting hit with an implied case of MisterSeahorse.
*** Even if the Doujinshi is meant to be a parody, it doesn't stop CLAMP from [[http://tieba.baidu.com/p/3866726006 producing a massive number of fanart]] where Kakyoin's feminine appearance go UpToEleven.

** 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 MessainicArchtype. But he gets to always be molested to Fuuma.

** Makoto is affectionate with Haru, and ''Anime/FreeStartingDays'' does show him to be in love with him, but fanfic exaggerates this trait to the point where his whole life and well being is devoted to Haru. His niceness and submissiveness is turned up too.

** Haru is barely able to function without Makoto in fic. If he doesn't talk about swimming, water, or mackerel, expect him to be talking about or to Makoto instead. he also tends to blush or be more openly affectionate here.
** In any Rei/Nagisa setting, expect Rei to be subjected to acting as Nagisa's bottom bitch. This usually doesn't happen to Nagisa though.

** Mello, the badass mafia crimeboss. Matt, the cool computer geek. Near, the quirky detective. Teru Mikami, the {{Badass}}, [[BullyHunter bully-hunting]] SerialKillerKiller. CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass rookie cop Matsuda. All of these characters tend to get turned into delicate, feminine ukes.

*** Leo in general is starting to get this a ''lot''. Two specific examples are him being abused by Garon so Takumi can comfort him, or alpha/beta/omega universe fics where he presents late as an Omega so the boyfriend of choice can comfort him through his humiliating first heat with a good dicking.

This trope is loaded with potential UnfortunateImplications, mostly by insinuating a correlation between [[RatedMForManly masculinity]] and positional preference in bed. In layman's terms, this trope can create the impression that "real men don't take it in the ass" and "taking it in the ass makes you a lesser man." It doesn't help the fact that views such as these are ''not'' unheard of among men that experience a level of same-sex attraction.



** Ken, Daisuke and Takeru also got their own moment each in fandom.

** [[TheAce Neji]] has been turned into a weepy blushing uke for Shikamaru and others many times. And Kiba, maybe the most HotBlooded character in the series, getting the same treatment with numerous partners.

** Hilariously, ''Turkey'' gets hit hard with this in much of the erotic fan art and doujin of him. Though it's all just for porn purposes and usually very tongue-in-cheek. That's {{bara}} for you.

* ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' has Yusei. While the above two were at least submissive or had {{Keet}} traits, Yusei is, straight-up, one of the most intelligent, mature, stoic, and strong-willed characters of the series. In the average fanfic, he is instead living for the love of Jack Atlas or Crow.

** Poor [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Inigo and Brady]] are doomed when they're paired with Gerome and Owain. Whether Laurent gets hit with this or not whenever paired up with Gerome, it depends heavily on the work.
*** When [[PlayerCharacter a male Avatar]], AKA [[TheStratigest Robin]] is paired with [[TheHero Chrom]], he falls victim to this as well... which mirrors the {{Chickification}} that his female counterpart often goes through when ''she'' is paired with Chrom. It ''really'' doesn't help how you can customize the guy's looks to make him a borderline {{Cute Shotaro Boy}} if the player wants to.

*** 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.
*** Leo in particular gets this in post-''Birthright'' fan works, portrayed as an angst-filled, weeping mess over [[spoiler:the loss of two siblings plus the possibility of Odin going back to his own lands as well as Camilla leaving Nohr to find herself. While some of his anxieties and grief are plausible, a lot of the portrayals of them run a direct contrast to canon, in which he's ''quite'' confident in his upcoming reign as King and shows no objection to Camilla's decision.]]

** 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.

** In fact, most {{Bishonen}} characters - particularly Steven, Wallace, Morty, Falkner, and Volkner, but also others - are given the uke treatment quite frequently. The first two get it due to the popularity of shipping, and Morty gets it due to his friendship with Eusine being interpreted as more than just friends.

* In ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', the character [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyII Firion]] is a [[TheBigGuy large]] HotBlooded WalkingArmory of a GutturalGrowler {{Badass}}. He is ''also'', especially in Japanese fandom, the LauncherOfAThousandShips in a CastFullOfPrettyBoys, and he almost always bottoms. The end result is that Firion is very frequently transformed into a weepy uke. Now, what makes this interesting is that while all of the above is definitely true of Firion, he is also at the same time rather in touch with his feminine side--he's sensitive, fond of flowers, and displays more emotional vulnerability than most of the other guys. It's just also intensely exaggerated for {{Shipping}} purposes. It doesn't help that in Japan, surprisingly, despite his deep English dub voice, he is voiced by Creator/HikaruMidorikawa. About the ''only'' one of his multitudinous common pairings where you can't expect ukefication is with [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Tidus]], being that the latter's {{Keet}} is turned UpToEleven and Firion becomes a sort of romantic OnlySaneMan.
