* Creator/JudeLaw and Creator/RobertDowneyJr discussed the HoYay between Franchise/SherlockHolmes and [[TheWatson John Watson]] at length in interviews to the point of leading several groups into believing (with either [[YaoiFangirl positive]] or [[HeteronormativeCrusader negative]] reactions) that the gay subtext between the characters would actually become ''text'' within the film. The [[Film/SherlockHolmes actual film portrayal]] is a fairly straightforward {{Bromance}} between two HeterosexualLifePartners who both have female love interests.

* Hitchcock's ''Film/{{Rope}}'' is an adaptation of a play written by a gay author (Arthur Laurents), starring a bisexual lead actor (Farley Granger) and based on the Leopold and Loeb case of thrill-seeking homosexual dandies. The film doesn't mention homosexuality once anywhere in the film (thanks to UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode) but it's incredibly obvious from the setting, the context and the dialogue.
* ''Film/TaxiDriver'' has Travis Bickle as a Vietnam War veteran. In the film this is casually hinted and not specified. Scorsese and Schrader discuss the subtext as if it had always been part of the film.

** ''Film/BladeRunner'' has the famous "Deckard is Replicant" issue. Creator/RidleyScott is quite keen on the idea that Deckard is a Replicant over the objections of the screenwriters and Harrison Ford himself. Scott got the idea mid-production. It wasn't originally in the Philip K. Dick novel nor was it planned at pre-production. Harrison Ford feels that Deckard has to be the main human being the audiences can relate to and properly be an AudienceSurrogate and he was openly angry when Scott tried to [[spoiler:insert the Unicorn origami scene since he caught on what he was trying to do]]. Hampton Fancher in any case feels that Deckard's humanity or lack thereof should never be openly addressed and become part of the surface experience of the film, and remain an issue of speculation.

* The [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Striaton Trio]] from Manga/PokemonSpecial really being the mysterious [[TerribleTrio Shadow Triad]] of Team Plasma, due to the overwhelming hints. The fact that it's a common theory for the games and anime helps.
** [[spoiler: And despite all those hints, this theory is eventually jossed with the Striaton Trio battling the Triad.]]
** For an example dating back all the way to the first generation, it was assumed for years by fans that Mr. Fuji, of Lavender Town, was the scientist who created Mewtwo in the games, who then retired to the Pokémon Tower to repent. Though Mewtwo's creator in [[Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie the movie]] is called ''Dr.'' Fuji, [[YouDontLookLikeYou he looks nothing like his game counterpart]] and their personalities are very different -- however, this is par for the course for the early anime, so it deterred no one from thinking that it is true in game canonicity as well as anime canonicity. Despite one line of dialogue that might ''possibly'' suggest that Game!Fuji was at Cinnabar Island at the time that Mewtwo was cloned[[note]]though all it says is that he is friends with Blaine, and [[PixelHunt few people would have read it before the remakes came out]][[/note]] there was still no clear evidence that Mr. Fuji even knows of Mewtwo's existence. However, the ''Anime/PokemonOrigins'' special ''does'' have him be the only person in Kanto who knows about Mewtwo, but still does not go out and say that he in particular cloned him. Most fans have taken it as confirmation, though.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' and ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' are made by different companies for different demographics, but both have characters ([[ScienceHero Ford]] and [[MadScientist Rick]]) who travel between dimensions, with implications that they've been to the same dimensions and/or met. ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=821TmxO95iE For example...]]) GF creator Alex Hirsch has implied that these references were meant more of a joke, but you can find plenty of fanart and fanfics that take the concept seriously.

* ''Film/RebelWithoutACause'' by Creator/NicholasRay has Sal Mineo's character Plato harbour a visibly obvious crush on Creator/JamesDean's Jim Stark. The film's bisexual love triangle had long been canonical before outright admitted by Nick Ray in a TV interview where he admitted that he, James Dean and Sal Mineo (who was himself gay) established the subtext and joked about how "this is for the movie buffs in France".

* KenAkamatsu's ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', ''Manga/LoveHina'', and ''Manga/AILoveYou'' are ''heavily'' implied to be set in the same {{Verse}}. He can't outright state this because of legal issues.

* Someone on the fan list for ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers'' (where several of the show's writers lurk) brought up the disturbing possibility that the Queen didn't put Zachary in the Psychocrypt right after his capture, but decided to [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty take out some frustrations on him first]], especially since the scene where she's standing over his unconscious body was dripping with some disturbing FoeYay. One of the writers delurked to admit that the writers themselves had very off-color speculations about Her Majesty's sex life. It's about a 50-50 split in the fandom whether she "just" used MindRape, or went for something more... inappropriate for a animated show.
