An array of pretty people as eye candy isn't just for the guys. Girls get their CastFullOfPrettyBoys to ogle too in the name of {{fanservice}}. This tends to be less noticeable than its [[ImprobablyFemaleCast female counterpart]] because exclusively (or [[TheSmurfettePrinciple near-exclusively]]) male casts are already common and expected (thought not always with the intentional appeal to females) and the fanservice tends to be along the lines of "he cooks" or "naked chest" and usually isn't as sexual or objectifying as fanservice in male-oriented shows, unless there are YaoiGuys involved. The writers sometimes leave it to their audience to retrofit the standard [[TrueCompanions group of friends]] into the UnwantedHarem if they wish.

Some series of this flavor go the [[HaremGenre reverse harem]] route and have an ordinary female lead among the {{Pretty Boy}}s as an audience surrogate, although the girly {{keet}} type can be used this way too.

Sometimes these stories have their own version of ThoseTwoGuys. One will be a 'normal' audience surrogate and thus a young (but [[DismissedGender non-threatening]]) girl. Another will be a more 'ideal' woman, often a [[CoolBigSis clever, sexy, and mature lady]] who barely fits into her dress.

Compare and contrast ImprobablyFemaleCast, OtokonokoGenre.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* {{Kyoto Animation}}'s anime {{Anime/Free}}! has a cast that, by far, only consists of five [[{{Bishonen}} attractive]] and well built male swimmers.
** And season 2 introduces a new set of pretty boys in addition to the old cast.
** It should be noted that this is a common trope for many sports related anime. Manga/{{Haikyuu}} and Manga/KurokoBasketball are also good examples of this trope.
* Most of the guys in ''{{Durarara}}'' could qualify. There are exceptions, but most of the male cast is rather [[{{Bishonen}} pretty]].
* ''BlackButler'' takes this to UpToEleven levels. Nearly every damn single male character is an outright bishounen, with few [[CoolOldGuy exceptions]]. There are a few female characters, but most of them are either one arc wonders, [[TooCoolToLive dead]], or only recurring. Or they're there to fangirl over the hotness of our protagonist, [[{{Bishounen}} Sebastian]].
** Jump ahead to the school arc of the manga. Ciel enrolls into an all boy's school & nary a woman is to be seen. What few women do show up are unimportant background characters with little to say & zero fanservice to provide any male readers who didn't abandon the series after season 2 of the anime. We do however get a large new cast of attractive teen boys.
* Several Creator/{{CLAMP}} series, especially ''Manga/ClampSchoolDetectives'', ''Manga/{{X1999}}'' and ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle''.
* ''Manga/{{Amatsuki}}'': Plenty of good-looking male characters for the fans to enjoy, both human and non-human. The artist lampshaded this by doing a GenderFlip chapter special without changing the guys' faces.
* In the 2013 TheAnimeOfTheGame ''Amnesia'', the entire plot revolves around a group of simply gorgeous young men, all of whom are interested in the heroine.
* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia''. All of the main characters, the Axis 3 and the 5 Allies, are young men. The main reason for this? The author has trouble drawing women. Ironically, many of the main characters were initially meant to be middle-aged. The first and most prominent female character is Hungary, who appears in the center of the volume 5 cover. It's probably not a coincidence that's [[YaoiFangirl she's a fujoshi]]. She is not the female audience surrogate, however; Seychelles was made for that purpose.
* ''Anime/{{Beyblade}}'' and its SpinOff ''MetalFightBeyblade'' has a rather disproportionate amount of pretty underage boys for a show about spinning tops, most likely to attract girls who otherwise wouldn't have given the show's premise a second thought.
* ''BlackBloodBrothers'' proves that being hot and being a vampire are not exclusive.
** When the werewolf big guy is a Bishonen, you are definitely here.
* ''Manga/BlackCat'': Filled to the brim with good lookin' guys. You can count the non-pretty characters on one hand, and none of them are prominent.
* Although ''Manga/ChronoCrusade'' has quite a bit of fanservice based around its mostly female TrueCompanions, it's not hard to notice that every single important male character is ''very'' good looking, and these characters probably have as many {{Shirtless Scene}}s as the girls have ClothingDamage scenes, if not more. Obviously, the manga-ka knew how to widen his demographic.
* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'', while having several plot-worthy female characters other than the lead in the manga, spends a disproportionate amount of its time on Yuki and Kyo. The rest of the cast is also heavily bishonen. Also see HaremGenre.
* ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' has them littered everywhere. Miaka, the main character, has a personal harem of them. Yui gets Nakago, and Nakago gets... everybody else, at some point or another in the story.
* Also in the "shounen manga for girls" category, ''GetBackers'' dishes up plenty of {{Fanservice}} in the form of scantily clad women with impossibly huge boobs, the series still appeals to some girls who are attracted by the predominantly bishounen cast.
* ''Manga/{{Gravitation}}'', ''GakuenHeaven'', and any other BoysLove series.
** Taken to a ridiculous extreme in ''LightNovel/{{Sukisho}}''. There are no female characters in the entire show, and all characters are either bishonen, handsome men in their 30s, or young boys, and one [[WholesomeCrossdresser crossdresser]] housewife. There is one single woman in the background who is visible for about half a second, and one character mentions his mother in one scene.
** Similarly occurs in the ''SaintBeast'' prequel series. There are no women in heaven apparently--those pretty youths with female names? Male. [[ViewerGenderConfusion Rei too]].
** ''VisualNovel/TogainuNoChi'': All Igura participants are male; all of them. In fact, the city of Toshima seems to have no female inhabitants.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' is considered a CastFullOfPrettyBoys among its female audience, despite the fact that it is not only a shounen series, but has a deliberate 1:1 ratio of male to female main characters and more or less assigns one female to each male.
* ''HanaKimi'' is about a [[WholesomeCrossdresser girl disguising herself]] [[{{Bifauxnen}} as a man]] so she can get into an [[BoardingSchool all-boys school]]. Obviously, most of the cast are {{bishounen}}.
* ''Manga/HunterXHunter''. There's so few women per story arc that you can count them on one hand.
** That said, there tends to be a wide variety of character types with only a handful of bishonen among them, and sometimes [[DudeLooksLikeALady it's really hard]] [[AmbiguousGender to tell]] [[ViewerGenderConfusion which characters are which gender.]]
* Except for a few deliberately ugly characters, Parts 4, 5, and 7 of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' are full of very feminine/androgynous male characters. (Part 6 takes place [[GirlsBehindBars in a women's prison]]). Part 2 is more like a Cast Full of [[ShirtlessScene Shirtless]] {{Hunk}}s.
* ''Manga/{{Karneval}}'': Most of the male cast could qualify.
* Shonen Jump title ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' has [[LauncherOfAThousandShips Tsuna]] and his guardians. Plus the side characters. Plus 99% of the villains. In fact, the number of times there is fanservice for guys can be counted on one hand.
* ''Kimi to Boku'' centers on a group of bishounen childhood friends, especially the twins Yuki and Yuta.
* ''LightNovel/KyoKaraMaoh'', complete with [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Two Girls]]: the flirty curvy ex-Maou Cheri and the younger inventor Anasina, sometimes joined by a trio of servants who are essentially fangirls themselves. (They write yaoi fanfic about their employers!)
** Yuuri even has an UnwantedHarem, and he's actually engaged to one of them! He pretty steadfastly ignores it, though he also gets visible man-crushes on at least one, possibly two pretty guys.
* 95% of ''[[KiniroNoCorda La Corda d'Oro]]'''s main characters are male and pretty.
* ''LoveMode'': Nothing but good-looking [[CastFullOfGay guys]].
* ''JunjouRomantica''. Understandable, since it's a BL series.
* ''NabariNoOu'': Every major and minor male character under 30 is {{Bishonen}}. No exceptions.
* ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' plays with this, along with Haruhi's [[WholesomeCrossdresser crossdressing]] letting girls gush over ''her'' too.
* ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' is a textbook example of this.
* ''Papuwa'' has only one human female character, and she's... Let's just say she is six feet tall, over muscled, and has a beard. The rest of the cast are animals and attractive men.
* ''PeacemakerKurogane'': Most of the cast is male and {{Bishonen}} and HoYay is rampant. The only identifiable females are Saya and Susumu's sister.
* ''{{Pretear}}'', created entirely on the premise of combining a MagicalGirl anime with a male UnwantedHarem. Even if a few of them are far too young to be bishonen yet, they are clearly meant to be bishonen in training [[spoiler:and before the series started, they * were* bishonen until they were killed by the villain.]]
* It's very easy to confuse ''ThePrinceOfTennis'' for a BoysLove series due to its largely male cast and mostly YaoiFangirl following. Actually it's a {{shonen}} manga and anime, however, it's a very fine example of the increasingly prevalent BishonenJumpSyndrome (and what a surprise, ''Prince of Tennis'' happens to be serialized in Shounen Jump).
* ''RoninWarriors'', wherein maybe two of the main characters are women, and every male is prettier than you or your girlfriend.
* Arguably, Masami Kurumada as the author of ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' popularized this. After all, who else would have the guts to name a ''man'' Aphrodite?
** His next big work, ''Anime/BtX'' is even more into this trope. Because as vaguely homoerotic as it was when Shun revived Hyoga by [[DeusSexMachina cuddling up to him]], ''nothing'' surpasses the bishieness of Demon Knight Sapphire. Because ''really'', he himself says he's really into "what's hot and what's not" and goes so far as to [[HoYay kiss Teppei]].
** Fou and Quattro-- born in Sodom, died in Sodom!
** CLAMP started off drawing ''SaintSeiya'' doujinshi (there's still some of it online, I think) and the SaintSeiya fandom actually consolidated the use of the word 'yaoi' in the 80s. It also has only one instance of female fanservice in the entire thing (although this is not so in Next Dimension)-compared to the amount of times we see Shiryu shirtless and Saga naked...it's certainly one of the best examples of this trope.
* ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'': The basic series premise is not 'A loose retelling of ''{{Journey to the West}}''.' It's 'Throw three hot guys and their cute surrogate little brother in a small jeep and [[HilarityEnsues watch the fireworks]].' The only significant female characters are Lirin and Yaone. Yaone was added in to increase the number of girls and in one volume a note from Minekura at the end states: "There are no women in this volume, I looked back and found a couple of pages with Kannon." As for Kanzeon? [[{{Hermaphrodite}} Close but no cigar]].
* ''SaiunkokuMonogatari'' has the heroine making friends with dozens of gorgeous {{Long Haired Pretty Boy}}s. If there's one thing to be said about the series, it's that it's very, ''very'' pretty.
* Since it's by [[KeikoTakemiya the woman]] who practically invented {{Yaoi}}, ''TowardTheTerra'' already had a fair share of pretty boys in manga form. Then someone decided to adapt it into an anime and put Nobuteru Y&# 363;ki (aka, the man responsible for the bishonen overload in ''VisionOfEscaflowne'') in charge of the character designs. The end result is that there are simply no ugly men in this series. At all.
* Every speaking male in ''TokyoMewMew'' is on eye candy. Take your arguably Stripperiffic TeenGenius, your [[RealMenWearPink amazing dessert chef]] with the [[CoolCar red sports car]], your [[BastardBoyfriend murderous]] [[StalkerWithACrush alien]], or your [[StepfordSmiler perfect boyfriend]]. Were we supposed to be watching the show for strong female characters or environmentalism? [[BishieSparkle Hmm]]...
* ''{{Manga/Trigun}}'' borders on this, as almost all of the major male characters are attractive bishonen, including Vash, Knives, Wolfwood, Legato, etc.
** It also has [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Two Girls]], in the form of Meryl and Millie, though neither of them does the curvaceous thing. One-shot characters handle that. Like the {{Stripperific}} engineer, Miss Elizabeth, and the undercover sheriff, Miss Aurelie.
* ''VampireDoll'' All of the men are gorgeous flamboyant eyecandy who lay on heavy fanservice. What few girls in the series are adorable too.
* ''VampireKnight''. While it has its female characters, the cast is predominantly made up of very pretty boys. Even the headmaster could be considered bishonen.
* Not even ''VisionOfEscaflowne'' escapes this treatment. Though Van isn't super girly, Allen, on the other hand....
* ''Anime/TheWallflower:'' Each member of the [[TheUnwantedHarem unwanted harem]] is a liberal user of BishieSparkle.
* Arguably the biggest draw for ''Anime/WeissKreuz'': despite its poor animation quality and plot holes large enough to drive a tank through, its four angsty, [[HoYay sexually ambiguous]] bishonen have garnered a wide fandom.
* MarvelComics has made several attempts to court {{manga}} readers, both Japanese and Western. Their latest attempt is {{OEL|Manga}} X-Men {{Shojo}} manga entitled ''Manga/XMenMisfits''. In this manga, Kitty Pryde, the AudienceSurrogate character, is the first female to enroll at Xavier's for a very long time and thus surrounded by an UnwantedHarem composed entirely of bishonen. [[SarcasmMode Poor Kitty]]. Submitted for your horror and/or {{squee}}; the [[http://www.gambitguild.com/GGForum/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=1570 Hellfire Club]]. Other exhibits include [[http://www.gambitguild.com/GGForum/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=1573 Bishie Iceman]], [[http://www.gambitguild.com/GGForum/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=1587 Bishie Nightcrawler]] and [[http://www.gambitguild.com/GGForum/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=1574 Not-So-Bishie Bishie Wolverine]] ([[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed who looks like]] [[Music/TokioHotel Bill Kaulitz!]]). Also included is [[http://www.gambitguild.com/GGForum/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=1560 Bishie Gambit]] (at least somewhat {{justified|Trope}} given Gambit has always been [[MrFanservice fangirl bait]]), who apparently is the resident {{Goth}}/{{Industrial}} fan. Kurt is unusually human-looking in this title.
* ''YamiNoMatsuei'': The average female character has the life expectancy of a particularly stupid gnat or falls off the face of the earth after one or two appearances, and only one major character is not bishonen. And we should be glad: apparently Ukyou (Muraki's ''consensual'' LoveInterest) actually appears in a short the author did at the publisher's request, and turned out to be a mystic trouble magnet with so much trauma she's afraid of all men and some kind of growth deficiency so she looks like a little girl. ''Not'' what the references to her led us to expect.
* As the page quote states, almost all the characters on ''Anime/YuGiOh'' are men, and most are either feminine or American, sometimes both. The best evidence of this is the ''[[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Marik's Evil Council]]'' videos, where all the villains appear in succession, and aside from Zorc and possibly Akun (or Bob), ALL of them are incredibly bishonen. It's even more obvious in the [[Anime/YuGiOhGX other]] [[Anime/YuGiOh5Ds two]]. Latter has emphasis on the ''[[CrapsackWorld Ghetto]]''.
* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' is another great example: while the central TrueCompanions gender ratio is almost 50/50, the focus is overwhelmingly on guys, many of whom are quite {{Bishounen}}. The big exception is Kuwabara, but ''damn'' if he doesn't make up for that with his great physique! This was not at all the case back when the premise was 'dead delinquent having heart-warming yet hilarious ghostly adventures', when the main characters were Yusuke and Botan, with Keiko and then Kuwabara becoming increasingly important, and also Shota who appeared twice and Sayaka the ghost girl who joined up for a while.
* ''ZeroSevenGhost'' main cast has only males, with only a few women on the side. Not only that, but every male character who isn't a geezer is *fabulous* , and good looks are apparently required to be a bishop. Then there's all the rampant HoYay...
* The only female characters in any given episode of ''MiracleTrain'' are Akari and the [[VictimOfTheWeek Passenger of The Week.]]
** Almost the same applies to ''MarginalPrince'' (where the character design comes from the same person as the series above): the only reoccuring female characters are relatives of the main characters (sisters or mothers) and all of them are [[TheFaceless faceless]].
* ''LightNovel/{{Corsair}}'''s cast, with the exception of [[CoolOldGuy Barbossa]] is very much this, plus Aura and Katarina to fill the beautiful women quota. [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/corsair/v03/c020/3.html Seen here.]] [[BoysLove There's a reason for this.]]
* ''UragiriWaBokuNoNamaeWoShitteiru'': Every character is a bishonen.
* ''Manga/InuYasha'' has this in ''spades''. [[note]]If you've been reading [[DrinkingGame/TVTropesWiki The TV Tropes Wiki Drinking Game]], take a swig.[[/note]] If the character is central to the plot and male, he will be Bishonen.
* ''KiniroNoCorda'' is a good example as well.
* BoysLove ''LightNovel/AiNoKusabi'' due to there being very few women on the planet it takes place and much of the population being the product of LegoGenetics.
* ''{{Number}}'': It's easier to list the female characters: two [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld look like]] four-year-olds [[spoiler: and one of them is the enemy leader]]; one's a NinjaMaid ColdSniper who might be [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot an artificial human]] (she's certainly [[PeoplePuppets treated]] [[HappinessInSlavery like one]]); one's a [[GagBoobs really well-endowed]] [[spoiler:hermaphrodite who killed herself trying to take down an enemy]], and her little gal-pal [[spoiler: is [[WholesomeCrossDresser actually a boy]]. There's also the main character's dead mom and sister]].
** The only male characters who ''aren't'' bishounen are the Number assassins' corrupt targets (we only see two of them before the plot kicks in) and the ninja-maid's master, who's a [[BlueVelvet Frank Booth]]-level sadist (minus the drugs (probably)). The rest of the handsome/pretty cast [[HoYay love]] [[FoeYay to torment]] the handsome/pretty teenage main protagonist.
* ''SchoolTeacher'' has a small classroom of cute/pretty boys who are actually animals trying to become human (''tsundere'' fox, horny rabbit, hyperactive squirrel twins, and very eager-to-please puppy; the puppy thought the teacher was a parrot due to his [[RedHeadedHero red hair]] and later declares that he "will be ''sensei's wife''!"). The two exceptions to the all-male cast are [[spoiler: the sexy ''oujo-sama'' cat with full lips, long hair, and female kimono who's actually a neutered male and the woman who had a crush on his master who only appears in flashback]].
* ''MarginalPrince'', it's based on a RomanceGame after all. In fact, there isn't a single reocurring female character except for Yuuta's faceless older sister (who serves as an AudienceSurrogate ).
* ''TheLegendOfSunKnight''. So much so that you could say it feels off when they tone down the copious amount of BishieSparkle after the first couple chapters.
* ''Anime/{{K}}''. Large, almost entirely male cast, all of them pretty.
* ''Manga/UndertakerRiddle''. The male/female radio is 1 female for 5 males, all of them pretty.
* ''Manga/{{Diece}}''. There's only one significant female character. The rest of the cast consists of pretty, pretty {{Bishonen}}.
* In ''Manga/KamisamaKiss'' nearly every male in the series is on a sliding scale of attractive that ranges from cute boy lolita to full-on Bishounen. If he isn't attractive, he is not plot important.
* In ''DNAngel'', if they're plot relevant and male, they will be {{Bishonen}}. (Bar Daisuke to some people but he could be considered cute in a {{Dojikko}} sort of way.)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fanfics]]
* Most of the male Capricorn Pirates from ''Fanfic/OnePieceParallelWorks''. One reviewer Lampshades this by saying, "All of the Capricorn males are either {{Bishounen}} or had the potential to become one - Yes, even [[{{Adorkable}} Hatori]] and [[{{The Alcoholic}} Thierry]]."
* ''Fanfic/TheSecretLifeOfTheBackyardKids''. The girls could be counted on one hand.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films]]
* ''Film/VelvetGoldmine''. Very young Creator/JonathanRhysMeyers, and still young EwanMcGregor and Creator/ChristianBale (clad in glitter, makeup and feathers, [[EverythingsBetterWithSparkles of course]]).
* The 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' movie has its cast invoking youth and sex appeal more than other ''Franchise/{{Star Trek}}s'' while keeping the cast mostly male.
* Most of the men in the movie franchise ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' would make a woman/man pant, regardless of whether or not they even like the story.
* ''Film/InterviewWithTheVampire'' had young Creator/TomCruise, Creator/BradPitt, Creator/AntonioBanderas and Creator/ChristianSlater as the main cast. Oh, [[TheSmurfettePrinciple and]] Creator/KirstenDunst.
* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' movies have a grand total of three female main characters, and almost all the rest are played by very handsome actors.
** Considering the books gave the females even ''less'' of a role...
** Subverted in ''Film/TheHobbit'' where the prettiest of the cast is reduced by a half, mostly because nearly the rest are playing older dwarves.
* ''Film/{{Gattaca}}'', thanks to DesignerBabies.
* It doesn't take much to see that the cast of ''Film/TheAvengers'' is eye candy and there seem to be only two females in the movie that have any part whatsoever. Even the villain is too hot for words.
* Film/FightClub seems to do this on purpose. It gives the female audience highly attractive men like Creator/EdwardNorton, BradPitt and Jared Leto in varying states of undress, a ton of HoYay... and then has them violently beat the shit out of each other. If you're into that kinda thing you'll be in heaven.
* The upcoming [[TheMortalInstruments Mortal Instruments: City of Bones]] movie has a ''ludicrously'' [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m8m16jjK3y1rdyda1o1_500.jpg attractive array of males]] in the cast - the females are pretty too, but there's much fewer of them.
* ''Theatre/LesMiserables''. Seriously, at least half the movie focuses on a whole band of ridiculously attractive young men in a revolutionary fervor and singing gorgeously.
** And the older guys are played by Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Sacha Baron Cohen.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The [[TroubledButCute perpetually angst-ridden]], [[MrFanservice ridiculously good-looking, fanservicey-as-hell]] (almost entirely) male cast of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', especially since the show likes to kill off any supporting female character. Combined with the unavoidable HoYay the guys make any fangirl's dream come true.
* Every new ''Franchise/KamenRider'' series.
** Not just the new ones. A good chunk of the old ones were considered "Showa Hotties" when their series were on.
* At first, in ''Series/{{Flashpoint}}'', the only female character on the team was ActionGirl Jules. Before Leah joined the team [[spoiler:after [[BlackDudeDiesFirst Lewis Young's death]]]]. Even Lampshaded the episode when Leah joined and the woman's locker room's sign was changed from ''Jules'' to ''Women''.
* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' has about a dozen main characters, all but two of whom are male. And they're so pretty...
* In Season 4 of ''Series/{{Merlin}}'', Prince Arthur assembles his Knights of the Round Table. [[http://oi43.tinypic.com/avhfti.jpg Recruitment seems to be based on how very, very pretty they are.]]
** How [[PrettyBoy drop-dead gorgeous]] our [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lthem32oM81qzkk5mo1_500.jpg title character]] is.
* The Warblers in ''Series/{{Glee}}'' are, for the most part, very hot and very good at singing. And it only becomes more so after [[spoiler:Kurt transfers to Dalton]].
** All the other hot guys on the show - Finn, Sam, Puck and Mike for starters. Also Will, Sebastian and Joe.
* ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'': The Salvatores, Jeremy, Tyler, Alaric, Klaus and Matt - and that's just the main cast!
* ''NoahsArc'': The only man of even average attractiveness in the main cast might be Alex (even that point is debatable), with all the other guys having absolutely perfect physiques.
* ''Series/{{Teen Wolf}}''. Those poor, beautiful, beautiful lacrosse players. They can't even manage to keep their shirts on for more than ten minutes at a time.
** Depending on your type, you could also add in Derek, Boyd, Mr Argent, Peter Hale, random extras on set.
* ''Series/{{Friday Night Lights}}''.
* Even the most feminist-leaning seasons of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' have an almost two-to-one ratio of male to female characters (standard procedure is four male rangers, two female; changes to the formula only lead to fewer females such as the five-to-one ''Ninja Storm.'') This leads to an almost all-male cast of young, good-looking, athletic pretty boys year after year.
* ''{{Series/Highlander}}'' has this in spades. Duncan, Methos, Richie...many of the baddie immortals aren't exactly ugly either. It's not an *all* male cast, due to Tessa in season 1 and the recurring Amanda and Dr. Lindsay later on, but it fits. The films have it as well, but the series is more noticeable.
* ''Series/{{Skins}}'' seemingly uses a very simple recipe for casting: "hot" and "in their late teens" which naturally results in this trope on the male side. Especially present in the third generation, when Nick, Matty, Rich, Rider and Alex can all be counted as pretty boys.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* This trope defines the Japanese talent agency Johnny's and Associates.
* Two words: {{Boy Band}}s. It doesn't even matter if they can play instruments or have talent. If all the members are fairly good looking, they fall under this trope.
* All K-pop boy groups. Don't even try to deny it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Radio]]
* Creator/BigFinish's [[http://www.bigfinish.com/img/news/doriankeyartcolcropped_image_large.jpg ''The Confessions Of Dorian Gray'']] (yes [[Literature/ThePictureOfDorianGray that]] Dorian Gray) manages to pull this off despite it being a sound only medium (which is a great pity)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The entire ''Franchise/{{Angelique}}'' series. Ditto ''LaCordaDOro'' and ''HarukanaruTokiNoNakaDe''. This is the ''[[DatingSim point]]'' of the [=NeoRomance=] series.
* Many characters in '''VideoGame/InazumaEleven''' are this. Some of them even look prettier than the female cast. Of course this applies to the anime as well.
* Nearly every male character in ''DynastyWarriors'' is, if not a downright {{Bishonen}}, rather good-looking, although all of the bishonen are from one of the Three Kingdoms (when they're not moonlighting due to game circumstances). Before DW7, Wu had the highest concentration of bishonen; now, Jin takes the crown, seemingly ''designed'' to be a Ghetto. Since ''SamuraiWarriors'' is derived from ''DynastyWarriors'', it's only natural that the trope applies there as well.
* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'', the {{Capcom}} [[FollowTheLeader riv]][[DuelingGames al]] to {{Koei}}'s ''DynastyWarriors'' and ''SamuraiWarriors'', is loaded with lots of male characters, who are things for female players to ogle at. [[Characters.SengokuBasara Most of its characters]] satisfy some kind of fetish, but it's usually arguable that guys like Date Masamune, Sanada Yukimura, Mori Motonari and Chosokabe Motochika come out on top of the popularity list.
* The ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' franchise have always catered to this trope on some level, though only by including one or two "[[MrFanservice token]]" bishonen rather than a whole harem. However, ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' relishes coming up with more and more bishonen to throw into the fray, the biggest example being ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'' and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', in which the villains are a sprawling [[QuirkyMinibossSquad organization]] of super-hot men with [[TheSmurfettePrinciple one token female on the team]].
** The all-star fighting game ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' includes the main hero and villain out of the first ten games in the franchise. This leads to 21 out of 24 male leads. [[TheSmurfettePrinciple The heroes only have one girl on their side]] (leaving out Shanttoto, who's a bonus character). By default, the game qualifies for this trope just for including Cecil and Kuja in the same cast. The female headcount goes down by one when you realize that Cloud of Darkness [[spoiler:is actually genderless and only takes the form of a beautiful woman.]]
* While few ''HarvestMoon'' games have the option of playing a female and thus providing a list of eligible bachelors, some of the more recent ones have started slipping in greater amounts of this into the bachelor selection. ''Tree of Tranquility'' even includes a guy so feminine you can woo him with flowers. Not surprising, as one of the chief complaints of female players was that the roster of wives were significantly better looking and interesting than the grooms. The spinoff ''VideoGame/RuneFactory'' and its sequels amps this up: even the main character, who is male, can be considered cuter than one or two of the bachelorettes.
** ''VideoGame/RuneFactory'' tends more toward [[ImprobablyFemaleCast the opposite end of the spectrum]], though; more often than not, almost every job in town is done by a cute, single girl (and/or her [[AbsurdlyYouthfulMother sadly unmarriable mother]]). Particularly glaring in ''VideoGame/RuneFactoryOceans'', the first game to feature a female player option at all; Sonia gets four choices for marriage (including Aden), while Aden gets ten. ''VideoGame/RuneFactory4'', which will be the first to feature a female option from the beginning, looks as though it will end up with a more even pretty boy/pretty girl ratio.
* ''MeineLiebe'' follows this trope with unabashed faithfulness, adding plenty of HoYay thrown in for good measure.
** The anime was worse, reducing the female character in the games to token appearances.
* ''YoJinBo'', being a RomanceGame, is all about the bishounen. The only girl who appears onscreen besides yourself is Hatsuhime (who kinda is still you, in a way). A couple of maids may speak during the endings, [[HeWhoMustNotBeSeen but they never get to be in the picture]].
* Pick an [[RomanceGame otome game]]. Any otome game. This trope is the point.

* ''HannaIsNotABoysName'' has many, many pretty men to suit everyone's taste, and a total of two significant female characters (one of whom at first seems like a VillainOfTheWeek). [[http://vert-is-ninja.deviantart.com/art/Next-To-You-I-m-Really-Short-151903123 Check out the cast lineup.]]
* ''TheDreamer'' has almost every taste, and only one major female character.
* ''[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Noblesse Noblesse]]'' the online manhwa, has hot bishonen aplenty--and they end up living in the same house. [[http://noblessefans.deviantart.com/#/d2zoivz Yaoi fangirls]], [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Frankenstein_9028.jpg right]] [[http://www.advancedanime.com/pictures/m21-1024x768.jpg this way.]]
* ''TheLawOfPurple'' frequently displays its prettyboys shirtless.
* Large enough portion of the cast of ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' are {{Pretty Boy}}s to qualify despite having several strong women characters who get ''panel time''.

* The four main men of WebVideo/DemoReel. Donnie flirts with everyone and is played by an [[Creator/DougWalker actor who self-admittedly lives for a sexual attention]], Tacoma is in drag for the latter half of the series and is regularly told he looks hot, Karl's sexy German accent gets him a foursome at the con, and {{hunk}}y Quinn is dressed in shirts that show off his muscles. The only female character, Rebecca, is also pretty, but very pointedly not sexualized to get across the message that women are treated like shit in Hollywood.

* Possibly unintentional on the part of its creators, ''{{Metalocalypse}}'' fits this trope. Dethklok and their manager are all attractive (even Murderface has his offbeat charm) males, the only female characters are extras or, in one case, a recurring villain, and the show is liberally peppered with HoYay.
** This was {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in a season 4 episode where the band goes on vacation to the Middle East and are mistaken for women by absolutely everyone. [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Even the few guys who believe they're men still find them attractive.]]
