* ''{{Deadpool}}'' faces this controversy. The writer for the current solo series, Gerry Duggan has openly stated that Deadpool is pansexual, then adds that he sees Deadpool as [[AnythingThatMoves "Ready & willing to do anything with a pulse."]] Then he mentions tweeting and keeping people up to date on Deadpool's "omnisexual exploits." Original co-creator, Fabian Niceiza states Deadpool's sexuality changes with his brain -mentioning that due to the constant erratic state his mind is in, Deadpool is, or likes whatever his brain tells him he does in that particular moment, then that moment passes. Despite these statements by two different writers, many fans doubt the sincerity of them because Deadpool has only ever been shown with women.

* In the musical ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', during the song "My shot", Alexander Hamilton tells new friend John Laurens "Laurens, I like you a lot". Creator Lin Manuel Miranda (who also plays Alexander), confirmed that this line was supposed to imply that Laurens and Hamilton were in fact more than friends. Historians have [[BiTheWay speculated to this effect]], especially using a letter that could easily be viewed as a love letter [[https://mobile.twitter.com/Lin_Manuel/status/646419967852847108]]

* The creators of ''Webcomic/StarPower'' intentionally left most of the character's sexual orientation revelations as this, under the idea of developing them as characters first.



* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': Rick Sanchez has been confirmed to be pansexual by creator Justin Roiland. However its downplayed in Rick's case as his pansexuality was revealed on screen in the episode "Auto Erotic Assimilation".

* Paul Dini has gone on record that Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, within the Franchise/{{DCAU}}, have a same-sex relationship going on (presumably when ComicBook/TheJoker isn't around). This was never part of the animated series itself (as it aired in a kids' time slot), but it was hinted at when they did the SexyShirtSwitch thing when not out committing crimes. There was [[http://i535.photobucket.com/albums/ee357/Pichu_Chu/lesbiansbl1.png more hinting in a comic book]] set in the same [[TheVerse Verse]]. The sheer amount of subtext hinting to this crossed the line in the comic and became just plain text.

* Creator/TessaThompson says that she played Valkyrie as a bisexual woman in ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', and that she considered [[spoiler: the woman who [[TakingTheBullet sacrificed her life to save her in a flashback]]]] to be Valkyrie's lover. A scene showing a woman leaving Valkyrie's bedroom (implying they'd had sex) was shot, but ultimately cut from the film.

* Creator/GoreVidal intended Messala in ''Film/BenHur1959'' to be Ben-Hur's former lover, and explained this to the actor playing Messala, but deliberately did not tell CharltonHeston (who played Ben Hur), since Heston would not have been receptive to the idea. It was also an example of EnforcedMethodActing: one wants to renew the relationship while the other pretends it didn't happen. By not telling Heston, they basically tricked him into performing as a character uncomfortable with the other man by making the ''actor'' uncomfortable dealing with the other actor.

* When doing the English dub for ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', the [[Creator/TroyBaker voice actor]] for Kanji Tatsumi was basically told by {{Atlus}} that his character was gay. Despite that, in-game, the English dub is ambiguous over whether or not he really is. The original creators have said that his sexuality was kept deliberately ambiguous in order to accommodate RuleOfFunny.
