In the West, gay men rarely appear outside of works being aimed for gay men (though this is changing with many series beginning to represent regular lgbtqa characters). However, one of the cultural quirks of Japan (though it is slowly bleeding over to the rest of the world) is the use of young homosexual men as {{Fanservice}} for girls or young women.

* Sion and Nezumi of ''LightNovel/{{No 6}}''. They've kissed on the lips (twice), they love to protect each other, they've held hands and intertwined fingers, they've cuddled, they've shared meaningful conversations, they've danced together, Nezumi has flirted with Sion, and they've slept together (not in the physical sense though). Also, Sion is quite willing to go into {{Yandere}} mode whenever Nezumi gets threatened or mocked and Nezumi has essentially claimed ownership of Sion in that one scene with the prostitute.

* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'': Yuri and Viktor have a great deal of intimate scenes together. [[spoiler:As of episode 7 they become an OfficialCouple after Victor gives Yuri TheBigDamnKiss, and by episode 10 they're engaged.]]



* ''FanFic/TheMadScientistWars'' has its fair share of pairings, but so far the most involved (read: CannotSpitItOut) relationship is between Andrew Tinker and David Toboz. As of this example, they're official, but Andrew still is smart enough to worry about ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies. Interestingly, Andrew's son may be heading towards such a relationship. Commander Xerox and Jess may or may not count. Jess is a shapeshifter who was born female, but when they first met she was shifted as a boy. Xerox, being Bi, donsen't seem to care much either way.

* Yuu and Mika of ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'' have a relationship that toes the line between subtext and text. There are tons of examples where Mika asks Yuu to run away with him and live alone together, their obsession with rescuing and staying with one another, their NoSenseOfPersonalSpace, and Mika's tendency to carry Yuu in a BridalCarry.

As well as how they're stated to be the reason the other survived so they could see each other again and Yuu is stated to be Mika's "precious princess/angel" he needs to save. Mika's voice actor states Yuu is Mika's everything, they have a bite scene that looks like something else, and they're stated to be like Romeo and Juliet.

** It's more famous for the implied {{twincest}} between Ephraim and Eirika, but Innes and Ephraim could practically ''define'' [[UnresolvedSexualTension UST]] with their constant bickering in VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones. Forde and Kyle are a toned-down version. Gerik and Saleh have a surprising amount of evidence in their favor: [[MyGreatestFailure Shared history that they haven't really gotten over]], the SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan dynamic, and Gerik even ''takes Saleh out'' despite having two attractive women vying for his attention. In fact, pick any male character from ''Franchise/FireEmblem''--odds are that they've got another guy they can support with for extremely subtext-heavy support conversations.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' only has heterosexual endings, but some of the guys have enough subtext between them to come across as these. Owain/Inigo is heavy in the ''Future Past'' maps, while Vaike is...quite obsessed with Chrom.
** A male Avatar in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' can be this with the outlaw Niles if they reach S support. Niles and Leo can also come off like this, with Niles's UndyingLoyalty to Leo and Leo showing a soft side towards him.

* Hikaru and Kaoru Hitachiin offer {{twincest}}-y BL {{fanservice}} to the customers of the ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub''. Honey and Mori's more downplayed guardian/master relationship has shades of this too. This is inadvertently pulled when [[spoiler:Kasanoda]] finds out Haruhi's secret and leads the host club customers into believing he's trying to confess his love to the beautiful male Haruhi. After realizing she does not reciprocate he swears to be her friend forever--and suddenly becomes very popular with the ladies, who find his tragic spurned yaoi love to be cute.

* ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'': In the novels Yu Fan and Yu Lan, twins who take very intimate showers together and kiss each other on the lips are actually ''[[YaoiGuys male]]'' instead of female.

But even outside of actual BL series, hints of male-male romances are often thrown in to help the series fanon[[MultipleDemographicAppeal appeal to other demographic groups]], though its main target audience is still overwhemogly female. If there is a YaoiFangirl among the cast, it is not unlikely for her to try and [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this trope.
