* ''Manga/Brave10'' has a bevy of {{bishonen}} in scanty clothing but the Mr. Fanservice is Rokuro by a long mile. He's got crowds sighing over his prettyboy looks in canon, wears a {{Stripperific}} outfit which includes pairing a crop top with strappy low rise hakama that have ever-deepening hip windows and have been cut from MagicSkirt cloth, and he eventually gets an [[AlwaysIdenticalTwins identical twin]] in the sequel, mostly so the author can draw them [[WhipItGood whipping]] each other's [[ClothingDamage clothes open]] when they face off in the tournament arc and a bunch of {{Twincest}}y splash pages. To the [[TeasingCreator author's apparent surprise]], he was voted the most popular character when the magazine it ran in polled its readership.

* ''Manga/SaintSeya'':
** This is kind of the reason why ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' has a BIG female fanbase. The most obvious is probably Andromeda Shun, a ReluctantWarrior with a pretty face, in-universe fanclub and big brother complex. [[spoiler:The storyline where he's possessed by the god of death doesn't help matters either]].
** There's also Dragon Shiryu, known for his constant {{Shirtless Scene}}s. [[Anime/SaintSeiyaOmega His son Ryuhou]] doesn't do it as much, but when he does...

* In ''Anime/{{Hakuouki}}'', nearly all of the high ranking members of the {{Shinsengumi}} are {{bishonen}}, with different members hitting all of the standard personality traits associated with this trope. Given the [[RomanceGame source material]] for the series, this shouldn't come as a surprise.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'': Despite being part of a franchise generally targeted at men ([[SarcasmMode because girls can't possibly be entertained by giant robots and politics]]), an overwhelming majority of the fanbase was women; women who were unabashedly interested in the male characters of the show for their looks, with maybe personality coming in at a close second. Heero, Duo, Trowa, Quatre, Wufei, Zechs, and Treize all fit this trope. The sheer amount of fanfiction, doushinji and websites dedicated to them (usually of the {{HoYay}} nature) is testament. IIRC this was done intentionally to broaden their audience demographic. It worked.
** On that note; there is PLENTY of [[{{DarkAndTroubledPast}} Dark and Troubled Pasts]] (particularly Heero, Duo, Trowa and Zechs), [[{{Badass}} Badasses]] (all of them), [[{{Bishonen}} pretty boys]], [[{{HoYay}} questionable moments]] that fuel the massive amount of yaoi fangirlism, stoicism (Heero and Trowa; although they kind of sorta not really get over their absolute stocism), [[{{JerkWithAHeartOfGold}} jerks with hearts of gold]], and a [[{{ShirtlessScene}} Shirtless Scene]] (maybe- Heero had bandages, but bandages aren't shirts, right?). Depending on your mileage there is [[{{FoeYay}} Foe Yay]] (Zechs and Heero always promising to finish their "duel"). So much [[{{TheWoobie}} Woobie]] (depending on the character it may be [[{{IronWoobie}} Iron]] or [[{{StoicWoobie}} Stoic]]) it is almost painful to watch at times, considering what the pilots have been through and what they keep going through during the show.

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'''s Edward Elric. No easy task considering that he's a [[TheNapoleon vertically challenged]] double-amputee. It helps that he's ridiculously ripped and appears to be unable to so much as walk past a sharp object without [[ClothingDamage his shirt artfully shredding itself]] to [[ShirtlessScene this fact]].

* ''Anime/KillLaKill'''s Aikurō Mikisugi randomly slicks his hair back and removes his glasses to reveal his handsome face while also randomly undoing his clothes and striking erotic poses when he explains how Senketsu works to Ryuko. He does this for no reason other than to annoy Ryuko and make girls watching the show faint.
** Hell, he even has fangirls who find his ''old man disguise'' sexy, despite it clearly not meant to be.

*** Tsumugu for similar reasons. It helps that he's almost always near-nude.

* Despite being a {{gonk}}, Takeo from ''Manga/MyLoveStory'' is one of these. In the BeachEpisode there's little focus on the girls but ''a lot'' on shirtless Takeo. The series subverts the usual image of his character design. His girlfriend Yamato finds his muscularity very attractive.



* This is kind of the reason why ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' has a BIG female fanbase. The most obvious is probably Andromeda Shun, a ReluctantWarrior with a pretty face, in-universe fanclub and big brother complex. [[spoiler:The storyline where he's possessed by the god of death doesn't help matters either]].
