->''"It's not fair, Ash! I don't even like girls! Why do I have to like you?!"''
-->-- '''Missi Fuller''' to [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer Ash Upton]], ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}''

Someone is mostly heterosexual or homosexual, with ''one'' exception. (If they're {{asexual|ity}} with one exception, it's SingleTargetSexuality.)

A romantic rationalization that removes (or tries to remove) potential {{squick}} from a non-standard attraction (BrotherSisterIncest, MayflyDecemberRomance, homosexual for an otherwise heterosexual character or vice versa, etc.) often uses this phrase. Since the character (usually) [[LampshadeHanging acknowledges the unusualness of the potential pairing]], the writer gets to assure the audience ''they'' shouldn't have a problem with it either and to minimize the deviation from {{canon}} characterization.

Judging by the examples presented here can often be place in three categories:

* '''Sole Exception''': The character in question has a one-off attraction to that person that transcends their sexual preference, based on mutual compatibility or otherwise emotional attraction.
* '''Even the Gays/Straights Want Them''': The target of attraction is presented as being [[SoBeautifulItsACurse physically attractive enough]] to [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer transcend]] the [[EvenTheGuysWantHim sexual preferences]] of people, not just the attracted character.
* '''ClosetKey''': The exception gradually becomes the rule for that character (this not being a subversion as such as the trope applies at the beginning of the relationship and is seen as responsible for the gradual reveal of the character's sexuality/gradual transition of their gender preference. Examples of this should go on ClosetKey.

This is also often an implicit assumption in SlashFic that tries to pair characters that are generally portrayed as heterosexual (or homosexual--and/or [[IncestIsRelative related]]). This is especially likely if the characters are already HeterosexualLifePartners, {{Buddy Cop|Show}}s, an OddCouple, or are simply shown attracted to ''one'' character without any other attractions to reference. When it's made explicit, it's usually referred by "We're Not Gay We Just Love Each Other" (WNGWJLEO) in {{ficdom}}, where it's often criticized for its perceived homophobia (as such, it's now an almost thoroughly DiscreditedTrope in SlashFic).

Since it often preludes a [[RelationshipUpgrade first kiss or actual sex]], it's extremely common with [[{{Moe}} "pure"]] characters who the writers are otherwise hesitant to show having an explicit interest in sexuality.

This trope can be diametrically opposed to NoBisexuals, which assumes that a given character can only be either heterosexual or homosexual with no exceptions; or cut down in the middle 50/50 in terms of attraction.

A likely requirement for any non-bisexual person in a relationship with a GenderBender. Or the main character of a DatingSim. In the case of a homosexual pairing it can result in a limited form of LastHetRomance if the relationship sticks.

In settings resembling RealLife, this trope is only about heterosexuality and homosexuality. In fantasy and Sci Fi settings, it can also be about variables that don't exist in real life, such as a person only being attracted to elves but making an exception for one very special human.

When this trope is deployed between, for example, a straight man and a {{Transsexual}} woman, it has UnfortunateImplications for what the authors think of her gender.

Compare SingleTargetSexuality, EvenTheGuysWantHim, EvenTheGirlsWantHer, StupidSexyFlanders. Compare and contrast SituationalSexuality.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Zigzagged with Ryo in ''Manga/{{FAKE}}'', the one you'd ''expect'' to fit this trope, as he starts the series ''insisting'' that he's straight, as opposed to Dee's open declarations of bisexuality. By the end, though, Ryo thinks of himself as a gay guy even though he has loved at least one girl in the past.
* Miyagi in ''Manga/JunjouRomantica'' is in his thirties, and has apparently been rather straight all his life. That is… until Shinobu shows up. Then he's suddenly gay.
* In ''Manga/TheTyrantFallsInLove'', Souichi is a complete and utter homophobe. And yet, somehow, Morinaga gets him into bed quite a number of times. At one point, Souichi even says he only does it with Morinaga because it's him.
* Kento of ''Manga/FutureLovers'', before meeting Akira, had his heart set on starting a family with a housewife. In fact, this is one of the main reasons Akira is initially reluctant to pursue a relationship with Kento because he fears that Kento will eventually leave him for a woman who can actually give him a family, but Kento repeatedly assures him that he'll be happy so long as Akira is with him.
* In ''Manga/UnderGrandHotel'' Norman mentions at one point "I'm not interested in men. Except him (Swordfish), that is..."
* Hiro says something along these lines to Shuichi near the beginning of ''{{Manga/Gravitation}}'', although it doesn't go anywhere because Hiro's the UnluckyChildhoodFriend.
* ''Manga/OkaneGaNai'': Neither Kanou nor Ayase were attracted to males before hooking up. As of chapter 37, it's made pretty clear that both Ayase and Kanou have the whole "If it's you it's okay" thing going for each other. However, ''EVERY'' straight guy in the series feels this way about Ayase.
* ''Manga/LoveMode'''s Shakashita Izumi'a feelings for Takamiya.
* ''Manga/HontoYajuu'': When pansexual Aki expresses (very unfounded) concern that his boyfriend will leave him for a high schooler, Tomoharu insists that he has no cause to worry because he doesn't like men. When Aki point out that Tomoharu is dating him, he responds with, "well, that's because you're special." Aki seems happy with this response.
* ''Manga/{{Zetsuai 1989}}'': Before he met Izumi, Kouji was a womanizer, and even after they get together he maintains that he's still heterosexual, just madly in love with Izumi. (In fact, he claims that thinking of other men makes him feel sick.)
* Iwaki Kyousuke and Katou Youji of ''Manga/HaruWoDaiteita'' love each other and no other guys.
* In the Creator/{{CLAMP}} manga ''Manga/LegalDrug'' Rikuo literally said this to Kazuhaya in chapter 14 of the continuation series ''Drug & Drop''.
* This is the origin of the term "GAR", originally a misspelling of "GAY (for X)".
** GAR originated on 4chan's board. A poster was describing his feelings towards the ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' character Archer, and mistyped "gay" as "gar". In fact Archer is the main embodiment of GAR with lots of straight guys on the board proclaiming that they are GAR for Archer. Another character that is hugely popular in this respect and has been for around 30 years now ever since his first appearance is [[FountainOfExpies Char Aznable]] from the ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' series.
*** The term has since been refined to refer to characters who are so [[RatedMForManly incomprehensibly manly]] (Archer from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', [[strike:Kamina and Kittan]] ''every male character'' (except Leeron) from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', Lockon Stratos from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'', Big Boss from ''Franchise/MetalGear'') that your own manliness is ''buried'', leaving you naught but a whimpering, swooning girl child, begging to be graced with their presence.
* Uttered at the end of Anime/DotHackSign, the [[AllThereInTheManual novel ".hack//ZERO"]] indicates that [[spoiler:Tsukasa and Subaru]] do in fact date.
** And apparently living together in .hack//LINK {{manga}}, 10 years later. [[spoiler: Tsukasa tells Tokkio that "he" might just go home in the middle of their adventure, so ''she'' can be with Subaru.]] This line was, btw, [[HideYourLesbians dropped in the "official" translation.]]
* ''Manga/KannazukiNoMiko'': Himeko more or less says this literally to Chikane near the end of the anime. Could also be a case of SingleTargetSexuality.
* An odd case in the ''Manga/MaiOtome'' manga: Erstin is [[SchoolgirlLesbians in love with Nina]], and [[DoesNotLikeMen spazzes out whenever she even gets ]]''[[DoesNotLikeMen close]]'' to a man. Later in the series, she falls for a ''second'' girl, Mashiro (whom she initially disliked for monopolizing Nina's attention)… only to [[UnsettlingGenderReveal discover that "Mashiro" isn't that kind of woman]]. A few panels of Ers freaking out over "[[FanNickname Manshiro]]" occurs, but she decides pretty quickly that she's willing to at least ''try'' to work past that whole 'male' thing.
** The same goes for ''Nagi''! in the same series, he doesn't care when he discovers the truth. No, really.
* ''Manga/NoBra'' presents a variation of the trope, where Masato is -- while swimming in {{wangst}} -- having massive hots for Yuki, who is a [[AttractiveBentGender vivid cross dresser]] who fools anyone into believing him to be a girl… [[AttractiveBentGender and a pretty hot one to boot]].
** Said crossdresser is probably an example himself. He's in love with "Maa-kun", his childhood buddy who he's liked and thought was Masato. [[spoiler:Turns out his friend was a {{Bifauxnen}}, and is another character.]] Yuki does say he doesn't like men too, so he probably has a SingleTargetSexuality.
** This is probably more of a subvertion than anything as Yuki seems to be more of pre-op MtF transexual than anything, rather than a crossdresser, and is specifically stated to "have the heart of a girl."
* Chizuru from the ''Hen'' manga has never been in love in her life, using her body mostly to gain favors from men. She also views having sex with girls as icky--until she falls head-over-heels for innocent, cute Yamada, which turns her world upside down on several levels. After a reality check Chizuru decides to pursue her love interest with abandon. Poor Yamada never knows what hits her.
** And it's made explicitly clear that Yamada is the ''only'' girl who makes her feel that way. Her attempts to imagine sleeping with other girls do nothing but {{squick}} her out.
* A inversion in ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'': [[spoiler: Haruhi's bisexual father Ryouji/Ranka renounced his heterosexual side after his wife Kotoko's death. To him, It's ''Not'' Okay If It's Not Her.]]
* Touya and Yukito from ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' aren't YaoiGuys, they're soulmates. Gender is irrelevant.
* In ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'', Kotetsu becomes like this after being given a lecture by Nagi after [[UnsettlingGenderReveal finding out]] the cute girl he met is [[AttractiveBentGender Hayate in drag]]. Hayate is '''[[BerserkButton not happy]]''' about it.
** Luca also implies that she has this for Hayate-as-a-girl, she states that she'd already have fallen for him if he were a guy, but believes he's a girl because he's been cross-dressed in every encounter with her yet. Placing her within the harem canonically, and just waiting for the bridget-dropping.
* It's very strongly hinted -- but ''just'' short of explicit -- that Leon feels this way about Count D in ''Manga/PetshopOfHorrors''. For Count D, Leon would be the only ''human'' he could maybe possibly ever feel attracted to. It's… problematic.
* In ''Manga/PenguinRevolution,'' this seems to be more or less Yuzuru Narazaki's approach to his feelings for [[SweetPollyOliver Yukari]], given that at the time of his LoveEpiphany he still thinks she's a guy, and doesn't find out otherwise until three manga volumes later.
* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Setsuna admits that she finds Negi cute and is attracted to his teenage form. However, she makes it clear at the same time that mild attraction is as far as it goes. She's [[HideYourLesbians strongly implied to be a lesbian]] and is [[BodyguardCrush paired off with Konoka]] while expressing some attraction towards her best friend Asuna.
* ''Literature/HalfPrince'': Gui's side story reveals that he feels this way about Prince.
* ''LightNovel/BakaAndTestSummonTheBeasts'': Akihisa Yoshii apparently thinks that homosexuality is wrong, yet has no problem whatsoever confessing to Hideyoshi (or buying fanservicey pictures of him, or getting a nosebleed from seeing him topless.) Of course, given Hideyoshi's [[DudeLooksLikeALady appearance]], one could argue that he just keeps mistaking him for a girl.
* In ''Manga/AoiHana'', this ''may'' be the reason why [[spoiler:Akira decides to try dating Fumi]].
* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'':
** This may or may not be the case for Utena with regards to Anthy. She adamantly plays the HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday card at first, but she clearly develops some manner of romantic feelings for Anthy by the end of the series.
** Arguably Juri Arisugawa. She's by all accounts a lesbian or at least has very strong feelings for a particular girl, but is shown flirting with and teasing the male Miki Kaoru. (Who, to be honest, could easily pass for a bifauxnen.)
* Lau from ''Manga/BlackButler'' is a HandsomeLech who mainly has Ran Mao around as eye-candy and to sit on his lap but appears to be IfItsYouItsOkay towards Ciel if his occasional attempts at flirting with him are of any indication.
* In ''Manga/NatsumesBookOfFriends'', the almost-certainly lesbian Hinoe ''[[DoesNotLikeMen hates ]]''[[DoesNotLikeMen guys]]. The only problem is that one of these pesky guys, Takashi Natsume, [[IdenticalGrandson inconveniently looks almost exactly like her long-dead]] ([[DudeLooksLikeALady female]]) crush Reiko Natsume, and [[StupidSexyFlanders it's making her uncomfortable]]. She eventually deals with it by simply ignoring the fact that Takashi's male, which is quite easy for her to do since youkai generally have little sense of gender.
* In ''Manga/VirginLove'', Daigo's pickup line to Kaoru is basically: "I like women, but you're [[EvenTheGuysWantHim gorgeous]]. My place or yours?"
* ''Manga/WanderingSon'':
** Nitori can best be described as a lesbian stuck inside a [[{{Transsexual}} boy's body]] but a girl named Chiba has had an attraction to her since elementary school. Chiba apparently has SingleTargetSexuality, since though she'd prefer if Nitori was a boy she doesn't mind much if she becomes a girl.
** Nitori's former girlfriend Anna dated Nitori, under the impression she was a masculine boy who likes crossdressing. They eventually break up after [[spoiler:Nitori goes to school in a SailorFuku and wig]], though Anna obviously still likes her [[spoiler:to the point where they get back together quickly]]. The series ends with [[spoiler:Anna and Nitori have been dating again for several years now. Anna says she's fine with being considered a lesbian if she's with Nitori]].
** Nitori displays no concrete interest in boys except for her trans boy best friend Takatsuki, who she states she sees as a boy even when stuck in feminine attire. She had a crush on Takatsuki in elementary and it ruined their friendship with Saori (who became very jealous of Takatsuki) for years.
* Used in a series of one-shots in a [[GirlsLove Yuri]] anthology called ''Mermaid Line'', when her boyfriend decides to [[{{Transsexual}} transition into a girl]]. Ayumi even says she never thought a girl was cute before.
* This is played straight and subverted in ''Manga/BokuNoFutatsuNoTsubasa'' where two people are okay with [[spoiler:Mako-chan's hermophrodite status]] while one other says they're okay with it but when it came down to the sex they couldn't do it.
* Possibly some of the guys from ''Manga/PrincessPrincess'', who get all excited (to the point of ridiculousness) about the "princesses" …even knowing that they're really guys dressed up in cute girly outfits.
* ''Manga/DGrayMan'':
** This is probably Kanda's attitude towards Alma Karma after he learns the truth about him.
** Also, Cyril clearly likes the ladies but he is also obsessed with Tyki and even flirts with him a couple of times.
* ''Manga/ToLoveRu'': Momo ignores all the guys who hit on her at school and only looks at Rito. Even when he changes gender, Momo doesn't seem to mind.
* Guts from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' is of the apparently-asexual variety. Due to [[spoiler:being raped as a child]], he HatesBeingTouched, but eventually, Casca is able to change his mind [[SingleTargetSexuality as applies to her]]. In some translations he even [[InvokedTrope invokes]] the trope name word-for-word.
** Guts's relationship with Griffith (during the Golden Age arc, anyway) is also somewhat open to interpretation. He's far closer to Griffith than anyone else (barring Casca), male or female. And there was that whole scene where he stumbled on Griffith bathing...
* Similar to the above, Hinako from ''Manga/BitterVirgin'', traumatised by [[spoiler: years of sexual abuse]], she only ever allows Daisuke to get close to her, as he doesn't think of her "as a woman". At least, that's what she thinks.
* Kanbaru of ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}'' is a self proclaimed lesbian with a crush on Hitagi. However, she also once told Koyomi that if he didn't already have Hitagi she'd totally date him. She once did AttemptedRape on him as well. How much of this is sincere and how much of this is her trolling him is up to the viewer.
* Nana Komatsu of ''Manga/{{NANA}}'' is implied to be this for [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer Nana Osaki]]. She has a very LesYay ridden relationship with her but is otherwise straight.
* Yuuto Kiba from ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' is this to and somewhat returned to by Issei, although this is all just implied by the almost harem genre of this and Issei not realizing how much he gets the girls, and EvenTheGuysWantHim.
* ''Anime/LupinIIITheWomanCalledFujikoMine'': Oscar, who's "gay as a springtime", as people has put it, but only for Zenigata. (The problem comes around that he ''hates'' Fujiko, the main character, and we never see how he thinks of women in general, just his extrapolation of women from Fujiko)
* ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai'':
** Subverted with Osamu "Parou" Tamura , who has feelings for an upperclassman at his school but the object of his affection isn't attracted to other boys. Parou begins dressing up as a girl to please him but the boy only uses him for sex, doesn't want to be seen with him, and is generally abusive.
** Played straight with Mai. Marika is the only male she doesn't dislike, because she is so feminine. She doesn't know it but Marika is secretly trans. When Marika begins living as a girl, Mai still likes her. Marika [[IncompatibleOrientation is straight though]] so she doesn't have a chance.
* Given an unusual twist in ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'', when the main characters Mahiro and Nyarko undergo a FreakyFridayFlip. Cuuko, who has [[StalkerWithACrush an obsessive lesbian crush]] on Nyarko, immediately tries to molest Mahiro; when he protests "This may be her body, but it's still my mind!", Cuuko responds "Just Nyarko's body is fine by me." Later on the trope is played straighter, when Cuuko ends up developing feelings for Mahiro because he's such a NiceGuy; when he questions this, she responds that [[{{OT3}} she's totally fine with the three of them getting married]], and wants to bear Nyarko's child [[MisterSeahorse while Mahiro bears hers]].
* Pretty much the law of the land when it comes to Po-Ju's works both in and out-universe (hence the meme [[GuiltyPleasure "Po-Ju made me gay,"]]) but ''Nebula'' is a special case as a FatAndSkinny duo of [[TheBully bullies]] initially seem like they're going to shake down and/or beat up Harry Potteresque nerd in hot pants only to make him strip naked, reveal the lubricating butt-plug he's been keistering all day then have sex with him while they lampshade their frustration at liking him the whole time and decide to [[InsaneTrollLogic hang around him more afterwards as to "not appear suspicious."]]
* In ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'', Mutsu states that he would have preferred being [[MagicContractRomance Winged]] by a "pretty lady", but readily accepts that the Ashikabi that [[RedStringOfFate called]] him is male. This doesn't stop others from teasing him, and their relationship remains somewhat [[HoYay ambiguous]] at the moment. Minato and Homura also have shades of this, with both [[CannotSpitItOut unable]] to admit their feelings but accepting their bond, never the less.
* In ''Manga/{{Jormungand}}'', this is Valmet's attitude towards her boss, Koko. In fact, Valmet has a huge (mostly one-sided) crush on Koko, although Koko keeps it (mostly) professional (much to Valmet's chagrin).
* In ''Anime/AquarionEvol'', after [[spoiler:Mix is captured she's both brainwashed by the enemy and also Gender Bent into a male (because the enemy planet has an effect that causes all life on it to be male).]] In the final episodes she's finally saved and gets her memories back, thanks to Andy, who was starting to develop feelings for her that she didn't quite believe prior to this, but it looks like they can't reverse the changes to her body. Andy says he'll still love her anyway, even if she's going to remain male forever, which convinces her his feelings are genuine. Though it turns out to be unnecessary in the end because they do in fact manage to return her to normal.
* ''Manga/LoveStage'': Stated word for word by Izumi. Ryouma develops feelings for Izumi even after finding out Izumi's true gender. Also, there were a couple of thugs that tried to assault Izumi when they found out he was a very good looking boy, with them considering making an exception for Izumi.
* ''Literature/{{Gate}}'' has Tuka Luna Marceau, a High Elf who is canonically a lesbian, but is attracted to Youji Itami, the JSDF soldier [[RescueRomance who saved her life]]. Itami is the only male she is attracted to.
* ''Manga/{{Adekan}}'': Wakabayashi says he considers himself straight but admits he has made Shiro his imaginary sex slave, naked and complete with collar. Several other [[EvenTheGuysWantHim guys]] feel this way toward Shiro as well. In particular, Kojiro and Shiro are implied to feel this way towards each other given the amount of HoYay they throw around while simultaneously liking woman and denying being gay.
* The second part of the ''Manga/SilverDiamond'' manga implies this is how Rakan feels about Chigusa.
* ''Manga/BetrayalKnowsMyName'':
** Tsubaki flirts with Yuki and fawns over him saying she DoesNotLikeMen and considers girls to be cuter. However, she says Yuki is the exception.
** Luka was originally together with Yuki back when he was a female and now that he's been reincarnated as a male he seems to still hold intense feelings for him.
* Both Tetsuo and Amano in ''Manga/{{Yuureitou}}''. Amano at first feels attracted to Tetsuo as a woman, but he eventually comes to completely accept him and love him for who he is. Taichi even states he doesn't want to be with a Tetsuo who has given up on being a man. Tetsuo identifies as a straight man while being biologically female and comes to fall for Amano after spending time with him and being accepted as being a man by Amano.
* Kazuhiro from ''Sazanami Cherry'' confesses his affections to a girl he's seen on the bus several times. After he asks Ren out formally, he is accepted however Ren reveals [[UnsettlingGenderReveal that he's a boy]]. Kazuhiro doesn't really mind.
* [[ThePigPen Fujou]] from ''Oddman 11'' explicitly says that she's not a lesbian, and that her relationship with Setsu, as one-sided as it is, is a special case. While we never see her interacting with men, she must consider herself heterosexual, since it's been stated that every female oddman has dated (or is dating) TheOneGuy, and doesn't relate to Kirara when she says she's bi.
* Mutsuki of ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' initially was depicted as a trans man with no interest in anything sexual (owing to his traumatic past which is implied to include sexual abuse from his father and Torso later on) and thinks sexual attention from men is disgusting. But he has feelings for Sasaki/Kaneki another man and decides he must be "embarrassingly female" to have these feelings but finds them hard to ignore especially as he [[GreenEyedEpiphany realizes his feelings as a result of jealousy at seeing Touka and Sasaki interacting]].

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Michael from {{ComicBook/Enigma}} falls for the titular masked man.
* Francine and Katchoo from ''ComicBook/StrangersInParadise'' are probably the only couple on this page where ''both'' characters felt that it is "okay if it is you." Katchoo is actually very difficult to classify, since she is very clear that [[DoesNotLikeMen she is not interested in men]], but simultaneously asserts that [[BiTheWay she is not gay]]. Most of the series establishes that she is, and forever will be, [[SingleTargetSexuality only interested in Francine]]… except that, when [[spoiler:she learns that David is dying and he has loved her for years]], she reciprocates and joins him in bed to have a child together and also to wait out his remaining days, even though it is clear that Francine is still the only true target of her affections. Francine is the more obvious and iconic example of the trope. She is in love with Katchoo but struggles with the sexual aspect for most of the series, and she is boy-crazy and states openly in mental monologue that she has never been confused about her sexuality before Katchoo. She never shows attraction to any other female through the entire run of the series, but ultimately comes to the realization that, male or female, Katchoo is the only person for her.
* In ''[[ComicBook/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy Season Eight]]'', Buffy (who has been consistently shown to be heterosexual, having several boyfriends over the course of the series) sleeps with Satsu, a lesbian Slayer. [[WordOfGod Joss]] has said this is less about Buffy coming out as gay or bisexual (because she still considers herself straight), but that she's "experimenting" and that it was logical step for her. Indeed, in the comic itself it's treated less as romantic, more as Buffy just wanting to be with someone who loves her. Which makes her either a {{woobie}} or a {{jerkass}} depending on how you feel about how she treated Satsu afterward.
* The 1980's Marvel comic ''ComicBook/NewMutants'' has Danielle Moonstar: jealous of attention paid to other girls by boys she likes, exhibitionistic in front of boys, admiring of the male physique and in love with her best girl friend Rahne Sinclair.
* For a very brief while, it seemed Trickster was headed this way with Piper in ''ComicBook/CountdownToFinalCrisis'', alas [[spoiler: Deadshot kills Trickster as he's protecting Piper]].
* Maggie from ''ComicBook/LoveAndRockets'' describes herself as this, which in some of the early stories irritated her on-again, off-again lesbian girlfriend Hopey. Although in one of the later stories, when she plants a TakeThatKiss on Vivian, Vivian gets into it for a few seconds before punching her. A grinning Maggie's aside response: "[[EvenTheGirlsWantHer Still got it]]".
* {{Averted}} actually for Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, despite what the page image shows the two have always been depicted as [[BiTheWay bisexual]]. That said the trope does come into play with Ivy, who has an extreme hatred for mankind, with one explicit exception, Harley Quinn. In Harley's solo series Ivy even stated that if she ever decided stop her criminal activities and settle down she would want to do it with Harley. Basically saying she plans to marry her one day.

* "[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4847462/1/Primary_Gain Primary Gain]]," an AU ''Anime/CodeGeass'' SlashFic, has a seemingly straight Suzaku fall for Lelouch (who is gay). Suzaku is very, very confused as to how this could have happened, but his recent girlfriend (Kallen) seems to be a highly amused YaoiFangirl about the whole situation. It doesn't help that a lot of other characters assume they are lovers, while Suzaku is weakly insisting, "But I like girls…"
* Presumably any slash fic based on two obviously hetero, in universe, characters is built on this trope.
** This is how SlashFic ''started'', with Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}} fans deciding that, as far as the rampantly heterosexual Captain Kirk was concerned, If Its Spock Its Okay.
* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'':
** Although Rei likes men and she cares about Shinji, she eventually also falls in love with Asuka due to the strong and enduring bond the three of them shape.
** It was a "blink and you'll miss it" moment, but a scene hints Asuka's feelings towards Rei have become almost as strong as her love towards Shinji. Asuka tells: "I don't need anyone else but him, not even… Kaji." Word Of God brought her little hesitation to attention, hinting she was about to say a different name.
* ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'': Asuka and Rei are mostly heterosexual and they like the same boy (Shinji) but they also fall in love with each other.
* ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}'': Kaworu is homosexual but he fell in love with Rei (a woman). Shinji points out Kaworu simply loves her for who she is, and "gender" is irrelevant to him.
* ''Fanfic/MyImmortal'': Enoby and Dracko is an love!!! Andf lovew for them is okayy.
** Actually it's stated that almost each main character is bisexual, hence [[AvertedTrope this trope is averted]]. Although Ebony later denies that she and Willow have LesYay because that would be "gay".
* In the LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya fanfic ''Fanfic/KyonBigDamnHero'' Mikuru Asahina (big) claims not being into {{Shotacon}} just before kissing Kyon.
** True, though, Kyon isn't young enough for that. GeniusDitz?
** Well, it may be hinting that [[MayflyDecemberRomance the age difference between Kyon and the adult Mikuru]] is [[OlderThanTheyLook much]] [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld larger]] than previously believed. Time travel is tricky.
* Sirius Black, in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fandom, often describes himself as a "lycanthrosexual", as the only guy he's interested in is Remus.
* In the ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' fandom, this is one of the most commonly used explanations for pairing [[HandsomeLech confirmed skirt-chaser]] Ezio Auditore da Firenze with canonically gay Creator/LeonardoDaVinci.
* The ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' fanfic [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6435170/1/The_Heart_In_The_Whole The Heart In The Whole]] is made of this trope - the normally asexual Sherlock Holmes begins a sexual relationship with John Watson, but still freaks out at the idea of anyone else touching him.
* In the ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' spin-off fic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6954805/1/Marik_Bakura_Go_To_Censored_Town Marik & Bakura Go To Censored Town]]'', Marik is completely straight except with Bakura. Whether this fic counts as part of the abridged canon is unclear, though, nor is it clear [[TransparentCloset if he's being entirely truthful in that.]]
--> '''Marik''': I mean, you know that I'm only gay for you! I'm very comfortable with my gayness where you're concerned. [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday But as far as anyone else goes, totally hetero!]]
* Most ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' fanfiction with the "[[GenderBender Ranma]] gets modelocked as a girl forever" plot use this trope in regards to Ranma and Akane. In reality though, both are strictly straight. Neither like the idea of doing anything even remotely sexual while he's a girl.
--> '''Akane:''' *thinking he's going to kiss her* Wait, Ranma. People are watching, you know! And we're both ''girls''! You can't, you can't!
--> '''Ranma:''' *walks past her* You've got a dirty mind!
** It's also implied by his thoughts in the chapter "Stand Up, Ranma!" that one of the reasons why Ranma wants to be back to his old self again is because he wouldn't be able to really be with Akane otherwise.
---> '''Ranma:''' Akane… it will be soon… I will be a man again, soon.
* A lot of fic deals with [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Dean Winchester's]] obnoxiously obvious hetness by declaring that, like the Spock example above, If It's Cas It's OK. (Castiel doesn't have to worry about it, because being an angel he doesn't technically have gender, even though his vessel is male.)
* In most '''M*A*S*H''' slash fic (yes, it does exist)if it's [[LauncherOfAThousandShips Hawkeye]] it's okay for Trapper/BJ/insert-male-character-here. Hawkeye himself is a subversion as fandom has decided he's AnythingThatMoves and reads him in the series as AmbiguouslyBi.
* A funny subversion offered by a third, observing party: The Anime/FullmetalAlchemist fanfiction ''Skeletons'' by Maiden Of The Moon (to be found on fanfiction.net) has [[SiblingIncest Elricest]] in a double serving. Once the classic Ed/Al and then again Edward's [[spoiler: well, actually Al's, biologically]] [[GenerationXerox grandsons]], Edward and Al(exander). When Alex freaks out on the possibility to have an incest fetish his younger sister Rosalie (yaoi fangirl and somewhat an expy of Winry) prompts to snog him and at his clear disgust gleefully exclaims that apparently it is NOT an incest fetish. He just happens to be in love with a boy that happens to be his brother.
* The Manga/DeathNote fandom has decided, as far as the otherwise {{Asexual}} Light Yagami is concerned, if it's [[FoeYay L]] it's okay. Overlaps often with SingleTargetSexuality for both guys.
* In ''FanFic/ACureForLove'' Light [[HeroicBSOD is a bit traumatized]] when he realizes he is attracted to L. L rationalizes it for him this way:
-->'''Light:''' I am sorry though. Really. I think I was confused.
-->'''L:''' You ''were'' confused?
-->'''Light:''' Hmm.
-->'''L:''' But you're not anymore.
-->'''Light:''' No. Well, a little. Mostly embarrassed and... [[ThereAreNoTherapists maybe I should see a psychiatrist?]]
-->'''L:''' [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Do I really have that effect?]]
-->'''Light:''' No!
-->'''L:''' Look, we'll forget about it. These things happen, I'm sure. I've read accounts of soldiers in the Belgian Congo being taken unaware by... waking up in the night and hormones and bad things.
-->'''Light:''' You have? Soldiers in the Belgian Congo?
-->'''L:''' [[ManlyGay They're very manly.]]
-->'''Light:''' They must be.
-->'''L:''' [[DeadpanSnarker And the Spartans. Remember the Spartans.]]
* With a good amount of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' SlashFic Naruto will be otherwise straight except when he's around Sasuke as well as Sasuke for Naruto.
* In the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' SlashFic Kiss and I Will Surrender by Fifi [=McFu=], Sora and Roxas are like this for each other.
* The Thor fandom has decided that, for Thor's point of view, If It's Loki It's Okay.
* The werewolf Victor in ''Fanfic/{{Luminosity}}'' intentionally went looking for his imprint to “cure” himself of being gay, since male wolves can only imprint on females because the point of imprinting is to reproduce and pass on werewolf genetics. It worked.
* In FanFic/AGrowingAffection, this trope is how Hana Inuzuka describes her relationship with Shizune.
--> ''Hana'': I've always found other women attractive, and not just in an aesthetic way. But I generally prefer men. I like the way they smell, and there is nothing like a long, hard… bicep to hold onto on a cold night. But there was something about Shizune; she and I just clicked."
* This happens to Sherlock Holmes and John Watson in multiple permutations of the fandom, be it Doyle's stories, the movie series, or the BBC series. Holmes may be asexual, and Watson may love women, but that doesn't matter when it comes to the two of them.
* Princesses Luna and Twilight in Fanfic/TheShadowWars continuity are both normally heterosexual. Their Sole Exceptions being where each other are concerned.
* In later chapters of the ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8935062/1/Shards-To-A-Whole Shards To a Whole]]'', happily married couples Tim and Abby [=McGee=] and Jimmy and Breena Palmer begin exploring their shared attraction for each other, ultimately bonding into a long-term [[{{Polyamory}} polyamorous four-person relationship.]] Abby [[BiTheWay identifies herself as bisexual]], while Tim, Jimmy and Breena identify as straight, with a healthy dose of this trope, combined with a little [[GirlOnGirlIsHot Girl on Girl]] and/or GuyOnGuyIsHot (as of 8/1/2015, Tim and Jimmy have not gone any further than kissing, and the primary standing rule of their four-person marriage is that no one pressures anyone into doing anything they are not comfortable with).
* [[Manga/OnePiece Nami]] is only interested in women in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10925103/2/A-Different-First-Crewmember A Different First Crewmember]]'' with a single exception: Luffy. She's implied to have multiple girlfriends before but Luffy is the only man she has any romantic or sexual feelings for. Of course, this results in some hilarity when Sanji tries flirting with her, only for Nami to largely ignore him.
* Due to the pressure on Purebloods to get married and have children, the gay ones in FanFic/TomRiddlesSchooldays had better pick spouses like this.
* In ''FanFic/NoChanceForFate'', Ami Mizuno is a strictly heterosexual girl. She gets quite the surprise when falling in love with Ranma Saotome, that she also starts to appreciate his female form. To Ami's relief it turns out that her heart and mind concluded that Ranma is Ranma, regardless of gender, and thus her attraction to both of his forms without her heterosexual orientation being changed at all. She still doesn't react to other girls at all. Both of them make peace with this fact and [[spoiler:due to circumstances even make love as girls and admit they ''did'' enjoy it]].
* There are two instances in ''FanFic/PersonaEG''.
** [[spoiler:Pinkie and Twilight for each other when Flash, Pinkie and Twilight enter a three-way relationship. Though Pinkie is a little more BiTheWay.]]
** Rainbow Dash ends up crushing on Principal Celestia. This ends up becoming a plot point when Eris posts on Canterbook as Rainbow asking Celestia out, [[spoiler:which is something no one outside the dorm should know, giving Flash the final clue he needed to determine Eris' identity.]]
* Several ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' [[PortmanteauCoupleName [=WildeHopps=] ]] fics take this approach with Judy and Nick: Judy isn't into foxes as a rule, not is Nick attracted to rabbits, except when it's each other.
* ''FanFic/TheRWBYLoops'' has Yang and Blake, who start dating after the expansion where Adam cuts off Yang's arm shakes them both up. Interestingly, while they do agree they fall under the "sole exception" version at the time, much later conversations have them acknowledge they might have been closeted bisexuals beforehand (but by that point they're in a committed relationship, so the point's moot).

* [[spoiler:Ace]] and [[spoiler:Tobio]] in ''Film/WildZero''.
* Played for laughs at the end of ''Film/SomeLikeItHot'' ("Well, nobody's perfect!").
* ''Lammbock'': Stefan for Mehmet Scholl, a (former) german soccer player.
* In ''Film/TrueRomance'', the main character has a monologue centered around rationalizing the idea that he would have sex with Elvis Presley if given the opportunity. It's written by Creator/QuentinTarantino, naturally.
* Subverted tragically in ''Film/YTuMamaTambien'': the two lead characters have been enjoying a [[HeterosexualLifePartner Heterosexual Life Partnership]] brimming with HoYay, but when it turns physical one night [[spoiler:(as part of their sexual initiation by an older woman)]], their relationship ends up destroyed.
* Strongly separated from sex in ''Film/MyOwnPrivateIdaho'': Mike and Scott are male prostitutes, both treating sex with men as nothing but a business arrangement -- except when it comes to each other. Mike loves Scott to the point of wanting to make love with him, and Scott, who is homophobic about any contact between men that can't be explained away by money or teen rebellion, makes an exception for Mike just the once.
* ''Mannen som elsket Yngve'' (The Man who Loved Yngve) -- the otherwise heterosexual, and fully girlfriend-equipped, Jarle Klepp falls in love with his new male high school classmate Yngve, much to his confusion.
* ''Film/PlanB'' tells the story of two straight men slowly falling in love with each other. Pablo does initially claim [[BiTheWay that he was once with a guy]], but admits later on that he was lying and tells Bruno after a failed attempt to have sex with him that he's confused about his feelings for him because he doesn't even like guys -- although it's quite possible that this was mainly due to his heartbreak over learning that Bruno was just pretending to be interested in him to steal his girlfriend back from him, as he's a lot more receptive after Bruno confesses to him that he genuinely fell in love with him for real.
* King Marchand in ''Film/VictorVictoria'' falls in love with the title character while thinking that she's a man. Eventually:
-->'''King''': I don't care if you are a man. (kisses her)
-->'''Victoria''': I'm not a man.
-->'''King''': I still don't care.
** Seriously undercut here by the fact that in the film (unlike in the musical it was adapted from) King has prior to this made a point to spy on Victoria in the bathroom and thus settle the matter to his own satisfaction.
* Woof in ''Film/{{Hair}}'' comments that he wouldn't kick Mick Jagger out of bed, but he's not homosexual.

* ''Literature/SkulduggeryPleasant'': Pretty much every character who is attracted to males feels this for China Sorrows. This is because she magically makes people who look at her fall in love with her, regardless of their gender. This eventually wears off of most characters as they interact with her more, but she is still considered to be extremely beautiful.
* In Creator/AnneMcCaffrey's last ''[[Literature/TowerAndTheHive Talents]]'' book, ''The Tower And The Hive'', Laria and her GayBestFriend and second-in-command Kincaid [[LastMinuteHookUp start doing it]]. The explanation ([[HandWave Handwaving]]?) of why they hooked up in the first place: they were both lonely and their Mrdini companions [[AliensMadeThemDoIt "pushed" them towards mutual comfort]]. They become a full-fledged couple later on (and Laria becomes pregnant).
* According to WordOfGod, Butch of the ''Literature/BlackDaggerBrotherhood'' is 'V-sexual', even though both he and Vishous are [[spoiler: in committed relationships with women by the end of their respective books.]]
** Judging by many scenes from ''Lover Revealed'', the feelings are mutual.
** That one was made pretty clear even without Word of God, though, especially in their novels, but hinted from the beginning of their relationship.
* Creator/OrsonScottCard:
** In the ''Literature/HomecomingSaga'', you have [[PairTheSpares Shedemei and Zdorab]]. When Shedemei becomes (unintentionally) ostracized from the rest of the women in their little refugee group due to her being the only one childless (she and [[StraightGay Zdorab]] aren't what the others would call "a real couple", though they were emotionally as close as any of the rest), Zdorab agrees to try for a child with her, for her sake. They end up with two.
** ''{{Literature/Songmaster}}'', meanwhile, has Josif and Kyaren -- Josif self-describes as a gay-leaning bisexual. With a 6% attraction to sheep. Expect to see a lot of things like this in Card's work.
* Ceilie and Shug Avery in ''The Color Purple''. Hinted at with one painfully awkward kiss in the movie. Stated outright in the book.
* The otherwise lesbian dance instructor and neighbor of Kinky Friedman's AuthorInsert, Winnie Katz has this kind of relationship in his mystery series in an on/off kind of way.
* Subverted in the ''Literature/FafhrdAndTheGrayMouser'' books: The [[HeterosexualLifePartners two titular heroes]] are actually a bit mystified at the fact that they ''haven't'' gotten curious about one another that way.
* Creator/StephenKing's ''Literature/TheLongWalk'' has the characters talking about being gay for each other.
* In J. Courtney Sullivan's ''Commencement'', this is how [[spoiler: Bree]] sees her relationship with girlfriend Lara. It's left up to the reader to decide, of course, whether she's right or whether her parents' disapproval is coloring her acceptance of her sexuality. Most of her friends seem to think it's the latter, but we never see her with another woman in the book, so who knows?
* In Maureen Johnson's ''The Bermudez Triangle'', Avery has a HUGE one of these for Mel, as she is straight. She says something about it being just Mel, and that she was only gay for her because Mel needed someone to help her realize that she was les.
* Alluded to in ''Literature/TheTalisman'' by Peter Straub and Stephen King. Jack Sawyer has the ability to "flip" between Earth and a parallel world, and the more time he spends in the other world, the more attractive he becomes to people in the real world when he returns. To the point that [[spoiler: a man that picks him up while hitch-hiking thinks about sexually molesting him without being quite sure why, so he drops him off at a truck stop much earlier than he intended.]]
* In Paul Auster's ''Sunset Park'', Miles Heller's old friend Bing Nathan feels like this with Miles. Unsure about his own sexuality he even tries out sex with another guy, but comes to the conclusion that the male body provides "no comfort" to him. He pushes Miles in the corner of the StupidSexyFlanders in this citation: "He was not the only one who felt this way. As far back as he can remember, Miles seemed (...) to possess some magnetic, animal force that changed the athmosphere whenever he walked into a room." This is verified by the way the other Sunset Park squatters react to Miles.
* This comes out in a painfully awkward conversation between main characters in ''Literature/PocketInTheSea'', in which the main character has to convince his best friend, who has a deep, lifelong crush on him, that it really is a case of "If it's you, it's ok." The otherwise straight main character goes so far as to negate the possibility of a future wife, something he had previously insisted on allowing.
* In many versions of from [[KingArthur Arthurian]] Literature, this defines Lancelot's relationship with Guinevere, as he is never at all attracted to anyone else.
* In Creator/HarryTurtledove's ''Literature/WorldWar'' series, "Mutt" Daniels is trying to romance a nurse named Lucille, who lets him know in no uncertain terms that she's not interested in men. Mutt understands what she means but can't seem to let it go. Eventually, he asks if she's even been with a man. She replies no, but implies that she may make an exception for Mutt. A minute later [[spoiler:she's killed in an artillery barrage]].
* In ''Literature/PrettyLittleLiars'' Emily is rather shocked when she finds herself falling for Isaac, the frontman of a Christian band, when she has only been attracted to girls before (or since).
* Played with in ''Literature/{{Hometown}}''. Kara is a lesbian, but experiments with her friend Jason. While they care deeply for each other and the liaison goes well, it only confirms to Kara that she's 100% gay.
* In ''[[Literature/UkiahOregon Dog Warrior]]'' Atticus Steele believes himself to be heterosexual for most of his life, but his love for his male roommate and later partner Hikaru Takahasi is strong enough to overcome that when Ru expresses an interest, and the two are a firm couple.
* Giles De'Ath in ''{{Literature/Love and Death on Long Island}}'' says he was completely heterosexual before he fell for TeenIdol Ronnie Bostock in middle age, even though his upbringing in British boys' schools gave him plenty of opportunities to do otherwise. Generally he doesn't seem to subscribe to modern concepts of sexual identity however; it's a much bigger blow to his self-image that he's fallen for a bad artist than for a male one. (The film version leaves this whole issue a lot more ambiguous.)
* In ''Literature/ThePardonersTale'' Nick identifies as Asexual but (almost grudgingly) falls for Alex.
* In ''Literature/PenrynAndTheEndOfDays'', even though she understandably hates angels, Penryn starts to feel attracted to Raffe.
* A Sole Exception example occurs in the Literature/PhryneFisher novel ''Murder and Mendelssohn''. Doctor John Wilson is homosexual, but due to shared experience and mutual compatibility, he falls into bed with Phryne both during the Great War and later when they meet up again in Melbourne. Phryne later renounces any claim to him so he can be with his true love.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/ThirtyRock'':
** Frank falls head over heels for the office's hot, young coffee guy. After much exploration, including an unsatisfying dance at a gay club, Frank realizes he's only "gay for Jamie".
*** In that same episode, Liz tells Frank that ".. you can't be gay for just one person. Unless you're a lady and you meet [[Creator/EllenDegeneres Ellen]]."
** When Jack shows a picture of his girlfriend Elisa (played by Salma Hayek) to the actor who plays the generalissimo, he exclaims "I am super gay and I would totally switch for her".
** At one point, Liz herself seemed a bit attracted to Elisa.
---->'''Elisa:''' I have a terrible secret. Please don't ask me what it is.
---->'''Liz:''' I don't want to know what it is! (pause) Are you a man?
---->'''Elisa:''' ''…really'', Lemon? You want to see me naked?
---->'''Liz:''' Kind of.
** Jenna has frequently hinted that she'd be open to a lesbian relationship with Liz. She says "I'd totally hit that" while looking at Liz in a pair of very flattering jeans, she's aroused watching adult film actresses playing the two of them kiss, and when Liz tells her "We don't need men", Jenna excitedly replies "Yes, let's lez out!".
* Inverted for laughs in one ''Series/AlasSmithAndJones'' dialogue, where Griff basically tells Mel "it would only be disgusting if it was with you".
* On ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', [[{{Asexual}} Sheldon]] finds relationships to be unnecessary and, partly due to his germophobia, revolting. However he's okay being more than boy-slash friend with Amy because she's [[DistaffCounterpart amazingly compatible with him]]. And as of season six he has admitted he's become so comfortable with her he may not be opposed to sleeping with her one day.
* In Series/BlackSails, [[WordOfGod Word of God]] has identified [[spoiler: Captain James Flint as gay, and his relationship with Miranda an example of the trope.]]
* Creator/RussellTDavies, writer of the above ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' example, had earlier written a series called ''Series/BobAndRose'' about a gay man who realizes he's in love with a woman and their struggle to make a relationship work. (Davies has always been vocal [[EveryoneIsBi against the idea of 'monosexuality']].)
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** In a slight variation on this trope, the episode "Crush" includes this line from Harmony to Spike: "No threesomes unless it's boy, boy, girl. Or Charlize Theron."
** After Willow decided she was strictly lesbian, she still had feelings for Oz, so this trope probably applies late in Season 4.
* Paige and Alex in ''Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration''. Paige identifies as straight, with Alex as her one exception, while dating Paige helped Alex realize she was a lesbian.
* [[DirtyJobs Mike Rowe]] once got an email from a male fan who wrote "I am secure in my heterosexuality, and I have to say Damn I've got a mancrush on Mike Rowe".
* ''Series/{{Emmerdale}}'''s Debbie and Jasmine seem to fall into this category. Their friendship twice turned into a romantic relationship and they were practically portrayed as each other's soul mates, yet neither of them ever showed an interest in any other girl and both slept with several male characters.
* In ''Series/TheFirstShopOfCoffeePrince'', Han Kyul tells Eun Chan, "I like you. Whether you're a man, or an alien… I don't care anymore."
* Kalinda on ''Series/TheGoodWife'' turns everyone's head.
--> '''Cary:''' I know a lot of people who weren’t anything until they met Kalinda.
* In ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'', this applies to both of the main characters. It's emphasized throughout the series that Hannibal is a narcissist who isn't capable of loving anyone or thing besides himself. However, it's revealed in Season 3 that [[spoiler: Will is the one exception to this rule and unlike every other partner Hannibal is connected to, Will is the only one he ''loves'' or even remotely cares about. And in the series finale, it's also confirmed that Will reciprocates Hannibal's romantic feelings.]]
* Series/{{Hollyoaks}}, Craig Dean is straight, he just loves John Paul.
* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'':
-->'''Lily:''' Robin Scherbatsky is many things: friend; confidant; occasional guest star in some confusing dreams that remind me a woman's sexuality is a moving target…
** In one episode in which Lily is having second thoughts about getting married, she tells Robin about all the things she wanted to do before marriage but never got the chance--like taking up painting professionally, traveling, or having a lesbian "experiment". Robin's answer to this is to plant a girl-on-girl kiss on Lily's lips, which is accepted with a smile. Lily is, quite frankly, [[ActorAllusion even gayer than Willow.]] Up to and including trying to get her husband into a threesome with Robin and in the same episode starts tearing off her clothes after kissing her.
** Also, in "The Three Day Rule," Marshall and Barney both admit that they're kinda gay for Ted. And by "admit that" we mean "repeatedly attempt to engage Ted in sexting (posing as a woman he just met) and get into a fight about which of them would be more sexually compatible with Ted before realizing what they're saying."
* In an episode of ''Series/MyHero'' George's shapely [[ArrangedMarriage arranged bride]] comes to Earth. Mrs. Raven declares "I'm straight, and even ''I'' fancy her!"
* The latest season of ''Series/NipTuck'' features an interesting variation on this trope. Liz Cruz, who up to this point has been a committed lesbian, discovers she's sexually attracted to her male boss Christian (but not any other guys).
* Michael Scott on ''TheOffice'' has this for Ryan Howard. It seems to start in ''The Dundies'' when he gives Ryan the "Hottest in the Office" Award (complete with a pat on the butt), and grows throughout season two. Other notable examples would be when Michael says he'd have sex with Ryan during a game of "Who would you do?" in ''The Fire'', and in the cold open of ''The Carpet'' when Michael stares salaciously at Ryan while he's filling in for Pam at reception. In ''The Deposition'', it is revealed that Michael even writes about Ryan in his diary.
* ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'': Morello for Nicky. Morello is entirely heterosexual prior to her incarceration, and after Nicky is sent to maximum security in season 3, she begins corresponding via snail-mail with men in the outside world in order to fill the void, and adds these male pen-pals to her visitation list, rather than attempting to find a new girlfriend within the prison. She even breaks down and cries in front of one of her male visitors and tells him that the one girl she cared about got sent away.
* ''Series/OrphanBlack'' has Delphine, who explicitly states she's never been with a woman before and is surprised about her attraction to Cosima. Though, she does mention the possibility of bisexuality, so Cosima might have just been her ClosetKey and she hasn't yet dated other women.
* Bongo in ''Series/RedDwarf'' episode Dimension Jump: "I've been happily married for 35 years. It's just, a chap like you can turn a guy's head."
** Of course that 'chap' was Ace Rimmer. [[EvenTheGuysWantHim What a guy]]!
* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'': [[CelibateHero Sherlock Holmes]] and [[FemmeFatale Irene Adler]] seem to have this attitude towards one another: the former is otherwise [[MarriedToTheJob married to his work]] and the latter is a lesbian. Additionally, [[ShipperOnDeck Irene]] seems convinced that [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday adamantly heterosexual John Watson]] feels this way about Sherlock.
-->'''John:''' Who the hell knows about Sherlock Holmes, but for the record, if anyone out there still cares -- I'm not actually gay.\\
'''Irene Adler:''' Well, I ''am''. Look at us both.
* ''Series/SouthOfNowhere'': Rare heterosexual example: Ashley is outspoken about [[BiTheWay "Not believing in labels"]] but is only shown being attracted to girls. And her on and off again boyfriend Aiden. Although he questions her dedication to him: "You only want me around when you want to be straight!" She denies it, conveniently forgetting that she [[IResembleThatRemark still has a picture of her ex-girlfriend on her dresser.]]
* A RunningGag on ''Series/SportsNation'' is that Colin Cowherd has a crush on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Occasionally, when Cowherd talks about Brady, a clip of him saying "I love Tom Brady" will pop up on screen.
* Sugar of ''Series/SugarRush'' only likes men as a general rule and [[ReallyGetsAround will sleep with most of them without a second thought]], but eventually ends up sleeping with her best friend Kim (who is gay, and whose powerful crush on Sugar drives the plot of the first season). It only happens once, and afterwards Kim eventually gets over Sugar. However, there are several hints that Sugar does genuinely fall in love with Kim following this incident, as evidenced by her jealousy over Kim's new girlfriend, Saint, and her behaviour in the series finale.
* According to ''Series/{{Torchwood}}: [[Series/TorchwoodChildrenOfEarth Children of Earth]]'', [[TheChick Ianto Jones]] isn't really gay. [[EventheGuysWantHim Jack]] is just special[[note]]"It's not men; it's just ''him''"[[/note]]. Although, later on Clem can smell the queerness of him, so whether he's being honest to his sister may be left up in the air, especially as it's later established that he lied to his teammates about his family.
** The novels have him making out with a man. While he's in a woman's body.
* In ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen'' Alan, who is straight, once admitted that he finds Creator/GeorgeClooney sexually attractive.
* ''Series/WillAndGrace'':
** Although never explicitly shown, Karen and Jack seem to have this type of relationship. Although Jack is a gay man (and one who frequently states [[HetIsEw his disgust at heterosexuality]]) it is implied that he and Karen frequently engage in sexual activity with one another.
-->'''Jack:''' I don't know, Karen.\\
'''Karen:''' I'll let you make out with me in the elevator.\\
'''Jack:''' Okay!
** And on a similar note, Karen seems to have the "if it's you it's okay" rule for [[BlondeBrunetteRedhead Grace. And Rosario. And Martina Navratilova]]. That might be Karen as UnreliableNarrator, though. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWEskkF4dKA&feature=my_liked_videos&list=LL99E3ZhTOBPmYyc6aX5zA0A "I was straight before I met you!"]]
* In ''Series/SlingsAndArrows'', gay actor Patrick is cast as Romeo opposite straight actor Sarah as Juliet, and to begin with they have zero chemistry, not helped by director Darren Nichols' bizarre decision to stage the play as a highly stylised chess match in which none of the actors look at each other. As rehearsals go on, the two start to bond out of their shared unhappiness with the production, and they start running scenes in private so that they can get a sense of what it would be like to do the play with feeling. Sure enough, such is the Power of Shakespeare that pretty soon they're tearing each other's clothes off.[[note]]This ends up feeding into the production itself; eventually, even InsufferableGenius Darren admits that he's not made of stone, throws out his original idea and lets them do the play as a passionate tragic romance, to everyone's immense satisfaction.[[/note]]

* Xing Bairong of ''Manhwa/WitchHunter'' fits this profile as of a recent character bio page, in which he is described as being interested in "sexy girls with hot bodies" and disliking "guys, with the strange exception of Tasha Godspell".
* A non-romantic example in ''Webcomic/OrangeMarmalade'' when Si-Hoo says he doesn't "bend that way" but says that he'll make an exception for Jae-min just so he'll "have him". Jae-min then tries to punch him in the face.

* There is a band called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gay_for_Johnny_Depp Gay for]] Creator/JohnnyDepp.
* Music/OfMontreal has a song called "Tim, I Wish You Were Born A Girl".
* "Wayne Gretzky" by Goldfinger.
* "Dude Looks Like a Lady" by Music/{{Aerosmith}}. Sure it's about a WholesomeCrossdresser, but it still fits. The implicitly straight falls for a "girl" at a bar and takes her backstage. There he discovers the truth right before "consummating" the relationship and decides to go through with it anyway because, well, he ''is'' pretty damn hot.
* "Lola" written by Ray Davies and performed by Music/TheKinks. Almost.
* Music/BelleAndSebastian's "Seeing Other People" is all about this trope, although at least one of its two characters is severely self-deluded. "We lay on the bed there/Kissing just for practice..."
* Music/TheMagneticFields' "Andrew in Drag" is narrated by a straight man reminiscing about the time his (also straight) friend Andrew did drag for fun, and realizing that Andrew in drag is in fact the only woman he's ever truly loved; over the course of the song, the title is rhymed with "A pity she does not exist/A shame he's not a fag" and "There is no hope of love for me/From here on I'll go stag". Of course, the irony here is that the song is written and sung by the openly gay Stephin Merritt.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Wrestling/DaizeeHaze is a wrestler who refuses to date her coworkers, but would make an exception for Wrestling/MattSydal.[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}},'' this occasionally comes up.
** Both the ''Reign of Winter'' and the ''Crusade of the Righteous'' adventure paths include a lesbian couple where one of the women was originally a transsexual man who underwent a GenderBender with his lover's support.
** ''Reign of Winter'' includes a non-sexual, optional variant, in that a player who pretends to be a [[AnIcePerson Winter]] [[CanisMajor Wolf]] to get into the city of Howlings and who uses diplomacy on the female winter wolf guard there [[GoneHorriblyRight will have her start flirting with them, as she's looking for a mate]]. If they respond positively, and aren't a JerkAss about revealing the truth after things get serious, she doesn't care that they're really a human and wants to keep the relationship.

* Invoked in Lanford Wilson's monologue play ''A Poster of the Cosmos''.
* Depending on the production of ''Cabaret'', this can be Cliff's relationship with Sally.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has several variants:
** The turian Garrus Vakarian becomes a romance option in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' for female Shepards. He notes that he doesn't have a "human fetish"; he just really digs Shepard. And is seriously confused about how their relationship works.
** The same applies to the quarian Tali'Zorah in the same game. In fact, data files indicate she (and several other characters in that game) were planned to be available for same-sex romance, but cut before release. As a result, her dialogue path with a female Shepard pretty much ends with stammering out the trope, then loops into the same dialogue non-resolution as with a male Shepard that turned her advances down out of fear for her health, which can be interpreted as a blatant case of HideYourLesbians.
*** WordOfGod revealed that the reason they removed the option of Tali romancing a female Shepard was due to objection from Tali's voice actor.
** The OneGenderRace asari seem to provoke this reaction from pretty much ''everyone''. Sha'ira, the asari "Consort" from the first game, appears to be wildly popular with both male and female humans, and there are at least hints that it's not limited to her, and that it's not especially rare for human females with no prior lesbian tendencies to become attracted to an asari. For example, one of the "background" characters you overhear in the third game is a female marine whose male compatriots are a little weirded out by her desire to join them on a "boys' night" watching hot asari dancers.[[note]]The character's "human" sexual preferences are left somewhat ambiguous except that she is very sexually aggressive.[[/note]] Another background character is a human female cheating on her husband with an asari.
** If you talk to [[DeadlyDoctor Mordin]], the salarian doctor/scientist a lot, sometimes he thinks you are trying to woo him (if you're not romancing anyone else on the ship). He tells Shepard that he's not interested, because the salarian sex drive is generally dormant outside specified mating periods. However, he remarks in the same breath that if he ''would'' ever get it on with a human, said human would be Shepard, [[HoYay regardless of gender]]. Furthermore, asari are apparently capable of awakening a salarian's dormant sex drive.
** On the human side (and a more relatable / traditional example) we have the Male!Shepard / Kaidan romance with dialogue that indicates this is out of the norm for both of them. This is probably used to [[AuthorsSavingThrow justify]] why a Male!Shepard can't romance Kaidan in the first game even though Fem!Shepard can.
** Let's just say that Shepard is this for pretty much everyone. S/he's basically a human asari, and could probably romance a Reaper with minimal effort if s/he wanted to.
*** In fact, the fanbase has read [[FoeYay interesting implications]] into [[EldritchAbomination Harbinger's]] obsession with Shepard.

[[folder: [[I Love The Dead Preserve Shepard's body if possible. ]]
* ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'''s Bridget, [[UnsettlingGenderReveal famously]].
* Played with (maybe?) in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'': [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Excellen]] [[CoolBigSis Browning]] makes an off-hand comment on making an exception for [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Viletta]] [[FemmeFatale Vadim]]. While Excellen [[SingleTargetSexuality is definitely straight]], considering [[TheTease the kind]] [[ManicPixieDreamGirl of person]] [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl she is]] and how the fandom actively [[AnythingThatMoves portrays]] [[BiTheWay her]], it's possible she isn't invoking this for laughs.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}} [[UpdatedRerelease Portable]]'', Ryoji tells the [[DistaffCounterpart Female Protagonist]] that he'd probably like her even if she were a boy. Makes the HoYay between him and the Male Protagonist make a lot more sense. Can also be famously [[InvokedTrope invoked]] by the player character (of either gender and either preference).
* Possibly Kaz and Big Boss in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'' dating missions.
** That said, Big Boss's superpower seems to be being the personification of EvenTheGuysWantHim, if Revolver Ocelot's application of GaussianGirl every time he lays eyes on BB is of any indication. Kaz probably fell victim to it as well.
* Adell from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'' makes it known that he's a fan of neither demons nor [[HeManWomanHater women]] (both a result of a past trauma relating to a [[HornyDevils Succubus]]). He makes an exception to both cases for Rozalin.
* In ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'', all romance options are available to both genders, even when the love interest in question has shown absolutely zero attraction to that gender before, implying that this trope is in effect. Invoked with Pierce, who says that he "usually doesn't swing that way" before accepting… [[AmbiguouslyGay regardless of the player's gender]].
** It's implied on several occasions that Pierce is both [[BiTheWay bisexual]] and absolutely terrified of [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant The Boss.]] So it's possible that his normal orientation is just [[InvertedTrope whatever The Boss isn't.]]
* Fenris of ''Videogame/DragonAgeII'' could be considered an example of this, if romanced by a mage Hawke. Despite having a deep [[DarkAndTroubledPast (albeit justified)]] hatred of magic, and an [[HatesBeingTouched aversion to physical contact]] (once again, [[AcheyScars justified]]), he is willing to put this aside in order to be with Hawke. [[spoiler:If Mage Hawke sides with mages in the final battle, despite his fear and hatred of magic in general Fenris helps Hawke without a second thought to support the one he loves.]]
* Sera invokes this in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', if she's dating an Elven Inquisitor. Due to elves being so skinny and her [[BoomerangBigot many issues with elven culture and the Dalish]], she admits that she doesn't usually go for other elves. She makes an exception for an Elven Inquisitor she doesn't find "too elfy." However, she continues to make bitter remarks about other elves and the Dalish ([[YouKnowImBlackRight even though Lavellan is Dalish]]) and disapproves even when the Inquisitor helps other elves (even ''city'' elves), making it clear that she likes you ''only'' as long as you act as non-elven as possible. [[spoiler: After visiting a major elven ruin she makes some very nasty remarks about the elven religion and history being fake and worthless, and ''expects'' Lavellan to agree with her. If you refuse to agree, she dumps you.]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Played relatively straight in ''VisualNovel/DontTakeItPersonallyBabeItJustAintYourStory'', when friendless loner Nolan reciprocates the advances of camp gay classmate Akira on the grounds that having someone that interested in him romantically makes him warm and fuzzy inside. As they gradually segue into a standard couple, whether this is a case of Sole Exception or ClosetKey for Nolan is left an open question.
* ''VisualNovel/KaraNoShoujo'': Mizuhara admits to herself early on that she's in love with Toko, but doesn't want to mention it because neither of them are lesbians and thus the relationship has no real chance.
* At one point in ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'', Riki, who as the protagonist of a BishoujoGame is definitely into girls, admits to having feelings for Kyousuke but denies it outwardly. When Kyousuke says something that seems to indicate he has feelings for Riki too, he is shocked:
-->'''Riki:''' Mutual love?! What should I do…? Kyousuke likes me too… we're both guys, but it's Kyousuke, so…
* ''LightNovel/MyTeenRomanticComedySNAFU'': Hachiman is generally heterosexual despite not having the guts or motivation to do anything; however, he can't stop himself from leaning a little around Totsuka. Of course, few guys can, since Totsuka's the cutest girl in the school (or would be if he was a girl).
* In ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate'' Daru takes a look at Ruka in drag and states "Balls or not man, I would so hit that."

* In ''Webcomic/SwordCatPrincess'', Erica displays no romantic or sexual interest in any of the female cast -- with the exception of Kathryn, with whom she flirts (musing on Kathryn's [[http://swordcatprincess.thecomicseries.com/comics/71/ "mannish" hands ruining the fantasy end of things]] for her). They later [[http://swordcatprincess.thecomicseries.com/comics/117/ share a lesbian kiss]] (and a lesbian much, much more).
* A bit of a theme in T. Campbell's comics, especially the women - Liz for Trent Reznor, [[RipAndTeri Teri for Tatanya]], Belinda for Liz, [[Webcomic/PennyAndAggie Penny for Aggie]], [[Webcomic/PennyAndAggie Stan for Rich]], [[Webcomic/{{Fans}} Meighan for Tim, and]] [[Webcomic/{{Fans}} Rumy for Ally]]. According to WordOfGod, none of these characters (except possibly Stan and now definitely [[spoiler:Penny]]) are bisexual, so [[NoBisexuals there's no need to go there]].
* Used to the point of ridiculousness in the otherwise excellent ''Webcomic/{{Arcana}}'', where two of [[strike:{{uke}}]] Holden's [[strike:{{seme}}s]] love interests, Sloane and Dominic, both claim to be straight, and his former [[strike:seme]] lover, Vincent, is only gay as a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent side effect of his vampirism]].{{Justified|Trope}} in that Holden was [[spoiler:imbued with a portion of Arcana's power as a child]], the effects of which caused everyone he met to be attracted to him. Also, Vincent didn't turn gay as a result of his vampirism: he was just [[PsychicLink mentally taken over]] by [[DepravedBisexual Adonis]].
* In ''Webcomic/BoyMeetsBoy'', Cy is heterosexual except for his infatuation with his best friend Skids. This was confirmed by [[WordofGod K. Sandra Fuhr]]
* In ''Webcomic/DARASuperGirlyTopSecretComicDiary'' this becomes quite central to the story's plot with Erika, an out and proud lesbian, falling in love with a man and having a sexual identity crisis about it. She eventually decides that it doesn't matter and settles for calling herself "queer".
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' has [[spoiler: the wanting-to-be asexual Susan crushing hard on Elliot]], including a joking version of this trope where she states that "It's okay if ''you'' do it" regarding semi-sexual humor.[[note]]In this case, asking about why she didn't wear the original Star Trek uniform for women rather than The Next Generation's[[/note]]
* Keti from ''Webcomic/{{Footloose}}'' for [[spoiler:An Calibairne]]… maybe. She's certainly bothered by being attracted to a girl, but the "creatrices" will rebuke any attempt to label her, and [[EveryoneCanSeeIt no one else in the strip is surprised]].
* There is an interesting subversion in ''Webcomic/FriendlyHostility''. Collin claims many times he's {{asexual|ity}} (he genuinely seems to hate people and can be down right misogynistic at times) and he just likes Fox but later he just realizes he's gay.
* Possibly Jake English from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. Despite otherwise seeming to show interest exclusively in women, he decides to give dating his gay best friend a shot.
** Defied with Dirk's feelings towards Roxy, [[spoiler:he does care about her (platonically), and in fact he says he ''wishes'' he could reciprocate her feelings, because he can see how much anguish her unrequited crush is causing her, but it just isn't in him to fall in love with a woman.]]
* A running gag in ''Webcomic/LeastICouldDo'' is that Rayne, the ultimate womanizer, has a long running crush on [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Aragorn]].
** Also, a long-running gag on the [[HeterosexualLifePartners relationship]] between Rayne and Noel states that the two, while unabashedly straight, are borderline gay for only each other.
--->'''Noel:''' Kate asked me if you were my soul mate.\\
'''Rayne:''' And what'd you tell her?\\
'''Noel:''' The truth. That yes, you were. And that I was only with her instead of you because she has girl parts.\\
'''Rayne:''' Sometimes I forget if we're gay or not.
** Rayne has had other gay encounters, likely meaning he's bisexual.
* Played with in ''Webcomic/MenageA3'', though there, characters may be in denial about their bisexual impulses (which are widespread in the comic):
** [=DiDi=], whose sex appeal verges on the supernatural, seems to induce this in many women. Early on, the straight Sandra seeks to have an affair with her, though that ends badly. Then Sonya (see below) is drawn magnetically to her breasts. Then Peggy, who ExperimentedInCollege but who prefers men, very willingly offers [=DiDi=] PitySex, because with her that's no sacrifice. Later, when Kiley gives her an example of a hypothetical romantic proposition, [=DiDi=] is overwhelmed and proposes sex; Kiley accepts, though she hadn't shown any interest in women before.
** Conversely and ironically, [=DiDi=] herself, while sometimes unsure of her own sexuality, mostly pursues men. However, following that incident with Kiley, she decides that she's found the love of her life -- and hence that she is now, for practical purposes, a lesbian.
** After the expert seductress Zii gets the not-very-bright Sonya into bed, the latter spends a lot of time declaring that she's "not a lesbian", but also that her heart belongs to Zii. However, it's obvious to anyone who knows what the words mean that she's a functional bisexual, with Zii as her ClosetKey. (She barely seems to have heard of the word herself; when she's reminded of it, she does acknowledge that it might suit her.) How she adjusts her self-image when she starts having sex with other women remains to be seen ([[spoiler:though given that the first other woman in question is her arch-enemy Yuki, there's plenty of scope for weird denial]]).
** Back when Angel and Zii were friends, Zii believed that Angel was strictly into women, and she tends to be clear on stuff like that -- but then it turned out that Angel was (and still is) [[LoveMakesYouCrazy obsessed]] with Jerzy. (Strip #862, March 13, 2014, NSFW.) Ironically, Jerzy says at that point that they were never a couple and their one night together was a mistake ([[spoiler:though things get a little bit complicated in that respect in the spinoff comic ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'']]).
* Several examples in ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'':
** Ash is a boy who has suffered a long-term GenderBender and ''hates'' being in a woman's body. Emily is the only person (other than Rumisiel, the angel who accidentally caused this situation) who is aware of Ash's true nature, and she is the only person Ash feels comfortable being intimate (physically or otherwise) with.
--->'''Ash:''' (to Emily) Whoa, whoa, whoa! Wearing a girly bathing suit in front of you is one thing, but I don't want anyone else there. Especially not guys…
** The more straight example is Emily's feelings for Ash. The fans were debating for a while whether Emily was either gay or bisexual and possibly in denial about it, [[http://www.misfile.com/?date=2015-09-23 but then Emily made the nature of her feelings clear in no uncertain terms.]]
** Later on, Missi, who has spent nearly every comic since her introduction pining for Ash, [[http://www.misfile.com/?date=2011-06-13 admits]] that she doesn't even like girls… other than Ash.
* Agent 300 from Creator/{{Humon}}'s series ''Webcomic/{{Niels}}'' has two of these. The first one being the title character Niels (whom he flirts with often and even has erotic dreams about early on). The second one being his current boyfriend, although he denies being a true bisexual considering his love for women, the only meaningful relationship he's been in during the series' run is with agent 250.
* Robin of ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'' described herself as [[http://www.shortpacked.com/2011/comic/book-13/03-fishin-chicks/exception/ "Straight. With an exception."]][[note]]The exception being Leslie, whom she'd just broken up with at this point.[[/note]] The readers knew this wasn't true, as her first girl-crush was on [[spoiler:Amber]]; Robin herself later drops the idea.
* Xing of ''Webcomic/WitchHunter'' is a total ladies man, he is constantly hitting on them, flirting, chasing and taking his shirt off around them. He ''hates'' men, actively avoids them and all around wants nothing to do with them... Except the male lead Tasha Godspell, who he is constantly hitting on and declaring his love for. Even Xing's close servant and bodyguard admits she has no clue what goes through Xing's head about Tasha.
* Lucas' feelings for Cadugan in ''Webcomic/YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic'' seem to fit this trope. It's possible Lucas is bisexual, and is only discovering this now as his long-running SlapSlapKiss with Cadugan finally reached its happy conclusion. But he still seems to be attracted to women otherwise. [[http://yafgc.net/comic/1420-lucas-cards/ As he tells]] [[OurGhostsAreDifferent his father's ghost]], "You want to know if I like boys. I don't know. I like ''that'' boy. Though I am still interested in women."
* Beth and Trixie in ''Webcomic/OriginalLife'', at the end of the pornfolio comic they agree that they're not lesbians, and Trixie suggests they do it with one of her sort-of-boyfriends next time.
* In ''WebComic/TwoKinds'', Natani is effectively a female-to-male {{transsexual}}, having a masculine mentality/self-image of himself due to needing part of his brother's soul patched onto his. Since his brother is a heterosexual male, in his mind, Natani is the same; even though his body suffers reproductive heats that give him strong urges to mate with males, he finds the idea gross on a conscious level. At the same time, though, he has fallen very strongly for fellow adventurer Keith, who is biologically and mentally male. This is giving Natani strong conflicting urges towards him.
* In ''WebComic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'', [[NiceGuy Norway]] seems relatively straight, but it goes out of the way with [[LovableSexManiac Denmark]], where Norway doesn't mind having sex or being groped by him.
** There's also his [[KissingCousins cousin]] [[ILoveTheDead Jan Mayhen.]]
* ''WebComic/MagickChicks'':
** Tiffany [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_need_a_date has asserted that she's straight]], as evidenced by the number of times she's instantly become smitten with cute guys. She's even gone so far as to [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/when_there_are_more_boys_around systematically rule out the possibility]] of being attracted to other girls, in general... except one. [[SmugSuper Faith]] [[TheHedonist Abbot]], who Tiffany sees as her arch-nemesis. As such, she doesn't feel she can trust Faith [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/enjoying_the_perks because she's an esper]] and because [[ReallyGetsAround Faith sleeps around.]] Yet, despite all her misgivings, Tiffany [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/omigawd can no longer deny being attracted to her]] and has begun to consider [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/forces_of_darkness possibly accepting Faith's offer of a relationship.]]
** Faith, herself, appears to be the exact opposite: she's a lesbian and well known [[ThePornomancer for having shagged much of the student body]] at [[AllGirlSchool Artemis Academy.]] Yet, despite her inclination towards her own gender, Ash [[LampshadeHanging has been noted twice]] as [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/touch_of_blonde the only]] [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/official_girlfriend male]] she considers to be worth her attention, and is the only one [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/stop_teasing she's ever slept with.]]
* A variant appears in ''Webcomic/The10Doctors''. Romana ends up comatose in a hospital where [[Recap/DoctorWhoTVMTheTVMovie Grace Holloway]] is working. When Grace realises that Romana has two hearts, she deduces that she is a Time Lady and assumes that she is the Doctor regenerated into a female body. After some brief soul searching, she decides that she has feelings for the Doctor whether he's a man or a woman, and kisses Romana just as she wakes up. When they sort everything out, they're both deeply embarassed.
* In the now defunct pornographic webcomic ''Karabound'', the eponomyous Kara is a nominally straight woman and sexual submissive who ends up in a BDSM relationship with her best female friend Lexi. It seems that her attraction to Lexi is less to do with gender, and more with having a willing and trustworthy domme. Lexi herself is implied to be a closeted lesbian or bisexual (she had previously experimented with other women) with Kara acting as her ClosetKey.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''Literature/TheSagaOfTuck'' mostly averts this. Travis is attracted to [[spoiler:Valerie, but it's revealed that he thinks she's a transsexual, either post-op or on her way, which would make him straight but unprejudiced (as he knows.]]
* Sara from WhateleyUniverse, alias Carmilla, is probably a subversion of this. She only has one male member of her "harem", but that was actually rather unwilling. He [[AttemptedRape tried to rape]] her... [[TooKinkyToTorture she prevented it by saying 'Okay']]. (She'd be a 6 on the Kinsey scale.)
** Carmilla may not count, since she's basically a demon of lust, and is changing from 'human het male' to 'hot demon babe with lust aura who is still uncomfortable about dating guys' to whatever she'll be in a few centuries.
** Also from the WhateleyUniverse is Gateway, AKA Molly. Molly, before meeting Chou, never thought of girls in a romantic way and isn't attracted to girls, apart from Chou.
** Subversion: Sizzle agreed to help the [[GenderBender newly-transformed]] Jobe work out some of her frustration in exchange for genetically-engineered BoobsOfSteel. Unfortunately for poor Darcy, it turns out that sex with Drow is ''addictive''...
** Zig-zagged a bit with Stronghold and Mega-Girl. When Marty reveals that her apparently gorgeous body is actually a PK shell, and shows Steve her real, [[GenderBender still-mostly-male]] form... he shrugs and says that he loves her anyway. This was a tremendous relief to Megs, of course, but Steve points out that just because he's from Georgia doesn't mean he's prejudiced, and the fact that [[{{transgender}} she was a girl on the inside]] (and that she ''would'' be physically female in a few years) was more important than what her body was like now.
* {{Yusketeer}} members Yusiko and Yukito seem to have this relationship, he has said he would go heterosexual for her.
** But he told me I WAS SPECIAL!
* FanFic/TheMadScientistWars has two somewhat unique examples of this. One is Xerox, who is now married to Jess 'The Chimera' -- a shapeshifter. Regardless of wether she's shifted to a boy or whatever he's cool. The other is CoolOldGuy (s) Dr. Viktor and Dr. Io, who may both be this for each other...
* From the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse:'' You should be very clear on this: Fiona Richards is not a lesbian, and has, in fact, dated and even had sex with several different men. Its just that she's madly in love with Margaret Shaw. She doesn't find any other woman attractive at all. And she wants you to be very clear on that.
* Although both straight, both Harry and Ron in ''AVeryPotterMusical'' show overwhelming love for Zefron. Lord Voldemort also misses his *cough* bromance with Quirrel after he gets back together with Bellatrix. Despite trying to get both him and Quirrel laid earlier on in the musical.
* Both Doug and Lewis like pushing the idea that the otherwise straight [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] has a big crush on WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic.
* WebVideo/DiamandaHagan despises penises… except for the one attached to OliverReed when he was playing the main character in ''Film/TheDevils''.
* One Creator/RoosterTeeth podcast told about how a drunk Creator/GavinFree told a very sober Creator/MontyOum that "he's usually isn't into guys" but, "if he had a boner for him, it was really trying."
* ''Roleplay/WeAreOurAvatars''
** The normally straight Daniel [[CrackPairing is attracted to]] [[{{Asexual}} Oryx.]]
** Shane falls in love with Demon!Asagi, but Shane's a homosexual. Like Xavin, Demon!Asagi bent his/her gender to accommodate for Shane.
* The narrator from ''WebVideo/HonestTrailers'' seems to see Gale from ''Film/TheHungerGames'' this way.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Originally, Smithers on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. One of the creators referred to him at one point as "[[SingleTargetSexuality Burnsasexual]]."
-->'''Burns:''' Nonsense! Dogs are idiots. Think about it, Smithers: if I came into your house and started sniffing at your crotch and slobbering all over your face, what would you say?
-->'''Smithers:''' [[{{Beat}} [beat]]] If ''you'' did it, Sir?
** Thanks to {{Flanderization}}, newer episodes depict him as all-out gay, [[DependingOnTheWriter sometimes]] with {{camp|Gay}} tendencies.
*** It is implied that he was dating John (from Homer's Phobia) at some point.
* Ray Gilette from ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' is quite CampGay but he's still willing sleep with Lana since, as he puts it, "no one's ''that'' gay."
** And later Archer is the last one to find out that the otherwise heterosexual [[spoiler:Lucas Troy]] has always been in love with Archer. The show also toys with, but never explicitly confirms, the idea that Archer, while also otherwise heterosexual, may subconsciously reciprocate his feelings too.
* Such a gag ends the 1944 ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short ''I Got Plenty of Mutton'': A wolf, having disguised himself as a sexy sheep in order to distract a ram from guarding his flock, finds himself being pursued (a la Pepe le Pew) for most of the cartoon. Finally, the wolf tears his costume off: "I'm a wolf!" The ram's leering response: "[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar So am I]]!"
