* The ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'' games have a RunningGag of a girl named Dorothee who is head of the Thors Military Academy Literature Club, but her entire taste in literature is this. One of your playable characters, Emma, joins the club not knowing of her taste in literature and throughout the game, Dorothee works to try to corrupt others into becoming fans of this genre.

* ''Manga/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' falls into the shounen/seinen demographic and one of the series popular aspects was the [[HoYay relationship between Shinji and Kaworu]]. This was to the point where KHARA released engraved Kaworu and Shinji wedding bands and necklaces from wedding company KISS that read "Good things happen when we play together". In the original drafts of Kaworu's appearance, the HoYay was meant to be even more blatant. Originally, they were going to go skinny dipping in the ocean together, [[http://anneemay.tumblr.com/post/41516408265/kawoshin-kiss-scene-that-was-supposed-to-be-in-the kiss]], and Shinji was actually going to confess his feelings for Kaworu.

Sometimes it's just part of the scenery, although most series directly foster what [[{{Fanservice}} the audience expects and likes]], with the plot usually being [[RealityIsUnrealistic quite unrealistic with respect to actual LGBT culture and people]]. Common criticisms include: Yaoi fetishizes and objectifies gay men, and is often claimed to be a genre only for women; the rigid seme/uke dynamic reinforces heteronormative values of masculinity and femininity, from who is allowed to penetrate whom, to the characters' personalities, and their body types; characters rarely identify as [[IfItsYouItsOkay gay or bisexual]], diminishing issues of homophobia and limited gay rights and removing itself from the LGBT narrative; rape is often fetishized or portrayed as a display of love.

''Yaoi'', also known in Japan as "Boy's Love", is a subgenre of {{Shoujo}} [[QueerRomance focusing on male homosexuality]], for a [[YaoiFangirl predominantly female audience]]. Typical pairings have the seme and the uke, which signify the characters' roles during sex, penetrative and receptive respectively, and often times even dictate their personalities and masculinity relative to each other. The word itself comes from ''"yamanashi, ochinashi, iminashi"'' (or "no climax, no ending, no meaning"), though fans have also come up with another memetic acronym: ''"Yamete! Oshiri ga itai!"'' ("Stop it! My ass hurts!")

* {{VideoGame/Enzai}} is widely known as the first BL Game to be translated into English, and infamous for its Shotacon content and high level of {{Squick}}.



* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' has rampant HoYay generated by Tsukiyama towards [[AmbiguouslyBi Kaneki]] in the anime and manga as well as other HoYay subtext examples. This, as well as the fact that the series has canon LGBT characters with Tsukiyama (pansexual/bisexual), [[CampGay homosexual]] DragQueen Nico, and leaves a rather ambiguous situation concerning Juuzou's gender identity. There's also one of Naki's subordinates who refers to him in a romantic fashion. Also, the sequel has earned considerable praise for the gender non-conforming Tooru Mutsuki. His [[HoYay relationships with other males]] and canon [[spoiler: romantic feelings for Kaneki/Sasaki as revealed in chapter 114]] is also something to take note of. There's also the reveal of [[spoiler: Matsuri Washuu being a homosexual man with feelings for Urie.]] Despite all this it's actually a very dark and gritty seinen manga/anime.
