* ''Fanfic//PokemonResetBloodlines'' mentioned in a AN that Melissa, the character of the day who beat Gary in the canonical Indigo League, is a Transwoman. Given the minorness of the character in the story overall, exploring this in story would have been rather random.

* ''{{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.
** There's definitely a lot of subtext in ''ComicBook/CableAndDeadpool''. For that matter there's a lot of text. There's also a popular rumor that Fabian Necieza (who wrote 48 out of the 50 issues) referred to it as a romance story, but no actual proof was ever given to it. Nicieza, though, was asked in an interview once who would he rather have as a roommate, Cable or Deadpool. His answer? [[http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&old=1&id=5637 Cable, because Deadpool would try to spoon him]].
** Also, Deadpool's feelings toward Spider-Man seem more than platonic. Spider-Man was on his top five free pass list that his wife signed. There's variant covers depicted him trying to kiss Spider-Man. At one point, Spider-Man was rocking his black suit, and in a more merciless mood, and Deadpool replies that he's terrified and turned-on by Spider-Man. Then the final chapter, Spider-Man hugs Deadpool swearing to repay him for a sacrifice made for him. Deadpool ruins the moment with a sexual comment, then it's hinted he also got [[RagingStiffie too excited]] during the hug.

* in ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'', Toki Zha, the best friend of the titular Erma Felna, is gay for her, by words of her creator Steven A. Gallacci in 2016. Keep in mind Toki being a lesbian was a joke in the fandom since the 80's due of her being a LovableSexManiac, albeit by WordOfGod, she was this since the very beginning.

* In the extensive AlternateUniverseFic series ''Webcomic/{{Roommates|2009}}'', Bowser Koopa, Jr.'s nerdy brother Iggy Koopa is known to have a girlfriend, but also seems remarkably comfortable with gay topics (even where RuleThirtyFour is involved). When Junior [[ComingOutStory came out of the closet]] and revealed that Jojo had been his boyfriend, Iggy even affectionately asked which one of them was on top during sex. The ''Roommates'' session writer, [=TreIII=], revealed separately that Iggy is actually not just straight, but ''completely'' straight -- he has no latent same-sex leanings whatsoever that could make him in any way uncomfortable with gay people, so he can talk about it frankly in perfect personal comfort. It is actually modern LGBT [[TruthInTelevision common wisdom]] that arrow-straight people are usually the ''most'' comfortable around gay people (compare Creator/DanielRadcliffe), and that most {{Heteronormative Crusader}}s are ArmoredClosetGay[=/=]Bi and irritably expending greater effort suppressing or hiding same-sex tendencies (compare the large number of high-profile right-wing gay sex scandals).
