* In the original OVA, there were ''mountains'' of LesYay. This series was tied with ''LightNovel/DirtyPair'' [[TheEighties back in]] [[TheNineties the day]] for being infamous for all the implied lesbianism.
** [[NoHuggingNoKissing While nothing was explicitly shown]], Priss was heavily implied to be in a relationship with Sylvie, by piling on heaps of subtext. When Linna and the others meet Sylvie, Linna mentions that Priss talked about her all the time and said [[InformedAttractiveness she could see why.]]
-->'''Linna: (at Sylvie)''' "If I were a guy, I'd make a pass at you, myself!"
-->'''Sylvie: (smiles sheepishly)''' "Um... thanks. I think."
** Sylvie and Anri were also very close, with Sylvie supplying her with [[spoiler: plasma]] [[KissingDiscretionShot by necking with her.]] During which, Anri would moan and [[LuminescentBlush was seen blushing]] afterward.
** Sylia was also subtly implied to have feelings for Priss:
*** In the first episode, Sylia refused to respond to a news broadcast of a Boomer that was pursuing a biker, to hide her concern. But Linna and Nene saw through it and offhandedly mentioned that it might've been Priss and how she'd be in danger without her suit. Sylia immediately dropped all pretense and left for the changing room to suit up, [[IKnewIt while Linna and Nene snickered behind her back.]]
*** Both times Priss was injured (episodes 1 and 6), Sylia just happened to be nearby for Priss to collapse in her waiting arms. She was also the one to visit Priss, after she quit the Knight Sabres, to tell her that ''they'' needed her and that she still believed in her.
** And there's still more; fans in TheNineties parodied it with an EpilepticTree that the Sabers were all "kangaroos".
** Meanwhile, on the "''Ho'' Yay" side of the fence, there's Leon and his partner Daley. Leon's willingness to play along with his partner's obvious flirting left plenty of room to speculate whether they were just PlatonicLifePartners, friends-with-benefits, or in an open relationship (considering Leon's flirting with Priss). The only clear thing is that the HoYay here is one of the most memorable things about the original series.
* In the UltimateUniverse version of ''BubblegumCrisis'', ''BGC: Tokyo 2040'', [[FanPreferredCouple some fans have noticed]] that lead character Priss Asagiri seems to have more chemistry with her partner, fellow Knight Saber Linna Yamazaki (and it seems reciprocated) than with her given love interest, cop Leon [=McNichol=]. Given Linna's [[http://hometown.aol.com/bgcpost2040/linna.html questionable orientation]], it may be more than subtext...
** On the other hand, Sylia Stingray, despite her daddy issues and her friends-with-benefits relationship with her mechanic and right-hand man Nigel, seems to be much more LesYay incarnate. Sylia shamelessly flirts with Linna during their first encounter, gets Priss in a dress (albeit a very ugly dress, which comes back to bite her in the ass later), is quite coquettish towards her cute female customers, and her explanation of why she made the Knight Sabers all female was... well... [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar special]].
--->'''Sylia''' (leaning suggestively over Nene, lifting her chin with one finger): What I need, Nene dear, is someone with whom I share a very special physical bond.
--->'''Nene''' (leaps away, babbling -- and blushing): I mean I like you and all, but I'm just not attracted to you in that kind of way, well not at least the way you and Linna are.
--->'''Linna''': (grimaces)Thanks a lot!
--->'''Macky''': Let me try and explain... (gives technobabble explanation on the importance of a pilot syncing with her hardsuit, with an assist from Sylia.)
--->'''Nene''': Oh right...that's what I thought you meant...
*** There was the whole...explaining to her mother why the arranged marriage wouldn't work out. Very... well... text-texty.
*** It's not that Linna wasn't bi-curious but that Priss never seemed to respond to it. If Priss is gay she keeps it hidden.
** When Linna goes backstage after a concert looking for Priss, one of her bandmates makes a comment along the lines of "why is it always Priss the girls come back here to see?"
** And as for Linna and Nene, they do end the series naked and hugging on a beach...
** Meanwhile, Macky seemed to have a bit of a guy crush on Nigel...
** And while Daley didn't flirt with Leon as much as he did in the original series, he did become very upset when he learned that Leon had apparently been inquiring about Priss's contact info, and specifically referred to himself as Leon's "partner". Big emphasis on ''partner''.
* BGC spinoff/prequel OAV ''AD Police: Protect And Serve'' had some serious Ho Yay between the main (male) characters Kenji and Hans, despite both having canon love-interests. Of course, one's girlfriend is pretty much only around for exposition (and so her boyfriend can talk about his partner to her) and the other is... not what she seems. Kenji is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who [[IWorkAlone works alone]]; Hans is TheCasanova who's suffering a LossOfIdentity due to [[spoiler: [[CloningBlues not]] [[TomatoInTheMirror being]] [[ArtificialHuman real]]]]; together, they confide in each other, hold hands, talk about where the other was last night, and [[TheyFightCrime fight crime]]. It starts out like the het version of SlapSlapKiss, and then they become HeterosexualLifePartners and well, it's a buddy-cop movie gone anime, what else should you expect?
