This character has nonexistent or remarkably low standards within the borders of their species and orientation's NORMAL sexual interest pool. They can be hetero, gay, or bi. This trope doesn't mean they're willing to lay children, animals, or inanimate objects; it means that things like age, personality and attractiveness restrict them much less than the average person. Such a character may get around a lot, but not necessarily; sometimes, it's just that their standards are low.
Note: Do not add behavior patterns that don't fall under Rule of Funny. Do not add characters for chasing after aliens or fantastic beings. Don't add characters who don't otherwise fit for just using the phrase "Anything That Moves." Anything That Moves is just a title.Further Note: If the character would sleep with something outside their species, they probably fall under Extreme Omnisexual, not this.
Not to be confused with Shoot Everything That Moves — though with some people, you never know. The male version is almost always a Kavorka Man or Casanova Wannabe; the female version formidable enough to be off-putting to the less experienced members of the cast, except in anime. Then she's a Lovable Sex Maniac.
Touga (He is mostly into girls, but he also hits on Miki in an early episode, has quite a lot of subtext with Saionji, and sleeps with Akio) and especially Akio in Revolutionary Girl Utena.
Kozue could be considered a female example, after sleeping with both aforementioned men, as well as an undetermined amount of nameless background characters. Oh, and let us not forget her car scene with Anthy... In the anime and movie she's also shown to have a thing for her twin brother Miki. She's extremely possessive of Miki to the point where she physically hurts anyone who tries to hurt or "steal" him. In the movie she is shown as being very possessive of Miki, even holding a razor to his throat while they're both in the bathtub together and calling him a traitor when he refuses to divulge details of his personal affairs to her. And in Utena Sega Saturn game Kozue is even seen dating Chigusa Sanjouin, a fellow girl, at one point.
Bizenghast. According to Word of God, Edaniel's sister Elala was the only person he would not ask to make out with. Onstage, he has asked Dinah, Vincent, and Edrear.
Edaniel:None of this would happen if people would shut up and make out with me. Just once. Which reminds me...
Edrear::Absolutely not, brother.
Subverted in Naru Taru - When Norio finds out about Takero having seven kids from different relationships (he's no older than eighteen), he suspects him for being one of that kind of people, and even that he could take "anything" literally and have sex with his Shadow Dragon. Takero Jossed it saying he's interested only in girls, because only they can have children.
Blade of the Immortal: Shira, who has no qualms about violently raping young boys along with women, sometimes borders on this trope.
Michio of MW whether the other party wants to or not. It's implied that he has something going on with his dog.
Darker Than Black: In the second season, Genma makes some creepy comments about Suou being cute, hits on Yoko, but also declares love for Hei. Incidentally, he also talks about wanting to find a woman to hurt him.
Gauron of Full Metal Panic!. It's pretty much canon that he raped the twins he adopted (who are female in the anime/manga and male in the novels), along with his perverted and obsessive love for Sousuke who he's had a thing for since the latter was eleven years old. (He also revealed to Sousuke in the novels that he had always wanted to kill him and rape his corpse and he pretty much gets aroused while telling Sousuke this.) Basically, the fandom is of the opinion that he would rape anyone. For kicks. Though, the fandom is more justified in his case, considering how every single interaction he has with anyone has rapist vibes to it. He is also shown to get sexual arousal from violently cutting up and killing people as well as choking them.
Also, Madoka Kei. Willing to go for just about anyone, and prepared to use some rather... disturbing methods to accomplish it.
Possibly Nyu from Elfen Lied. Her other personalities don't seem to have the same bisexual tendencies, however they're focused on Kouta. Nyu could be a way of projecting their bisexuality.
Karin: Kanon. First time we see her, she's trying to wake up her father with a kiss. When her mother tries to stop her, she tries to give her a kiss. And when said mother mentions that Kanon's grandmother is coming over, Kanon clearly starts fantasizing about kissing her. Probably justified, due to her nature. She was Sophia, a slave and martyr to the vampire race for thousands of years, until she was freed by the Power Of Love and reincarnated in a young girl, who is now Kanon.
Chintsubu: Kamiya has a reputation for being promiscuous with both genders.
Aion from Chrono Crusade. He not only happily seduces those that are willing to sleep with him, but is implied to attempt to rape many of the ones that aren't willing (and may have even succeeded in one case).
Angela herself qualifies. Though she never shows attraction to women, she does bang Pluto, tries to get with Sebastian and was likely getting jiggy with Houndsworth.
Aogami Pierce from A Certain Magical Index because of his enormous, but non-exhaustive list of tropes/fetishes he finds stimulating (see quotes section). It ends with a succinct "...any female is within my area of acceptance."
Bueno Excellente, part of the disturbing and disturbed hero team "Section 8" in Hitman, "defeats evil with the power of perversion." He may have drugged and raped the Green Lantern.
He definitely raped Lobo.
And married him.
Daken: Wolverine's son hasn't finished a single episode of his comic without seducing or sleeping with somebody, usually killing them as well.
Interestingly, Word of God is that Daken's asexual; he's not interested in it, personally, but uses sex as a tool of manipulation and emotional torment.
One of Deadpool's clients was an aristocrat who was turned on by everything. Deadpool quizzed him extensively on this.
If this was the guy whose panty collection was robbed, then it was Agent X, not Deadpool.
The Desert Peach, a comic about Erwin Rommel's gay younger brother (no really), has the Peach's boyfriend, Rosen Kavalier, be a guy who'll do anything to anything (although he didn't realize he was into males until he met Pfirsich Rommel).
According to the Midnighter series, everyone will be like this in the future. They don't even have the concepts of heterosexual and homosexual.
Midnighter: So, in the future, everybody just does everybody with no classifications?
Time Cop: That's about the size of it.
Shatterstar has developed into this in the new series of X-Factor.
Pretty much the entirety of the Pantheon in The Wicked And The Divine qualify, but Sakhmet is the most famous (or infamous) for it.
Ling in the Fullmetal Alchemist fanfiction The Seven Names of Envy Angevin. To date, although nothing explicit has been shown/described, he's flirted with or been shown to have history with Ed, Russell, Vicki, Winry and Sloth, and seems to have designs on Envy. Not to mention he brags to Russell about showing restraint and not sleeping with anybody for a whole two weeks. (Russell's response is a Crowning Moment of Funny.)
The titular character in Vixen says she'll have sex with anyone except black people and the disabled. She even has sex with her own brother. She's a classic example of an Anything That Moves character (and is played by bisexual actress Erica Gavin).
Pirates of the Caribbean: Jack Sparrow is shown on screen to be interested in women, is confirmed by Word of God to be bisexual, and during a scene where he's hallucinating various versions of himself that represent different parts of his mind, one of them is shown making overtures to a goat. Jack is very obviously this trope.
Catherine in Not Another Teen Movie is quite obviously bi and it seems the only qualifying factor you must have to have sex with her is be human.
Rasputin The Mad Monk is this in Nicholas and Alexandra, as he reportedly was in Real Life. He brings a young lady who is hoping to be an opera singer to him, and tells her "You have the chest for it." He dances lasciviously with a male cross-dresser at the party that ends in his Rasputinian Death. In one scene, he's traveling on horseback when he sees some pretty girls baling hay. Cut to Rasputin naked in the hay cart with the girls.
A number of characters from Jacqueline Carey's Kushiels Legacy books fit this trope - almost inevitably, considering Everyone Is Bi and the books centre around a country that, shall we say, puts a high priority on sex. The most glaring example is probably Mavros Shahrizai, who seems to view everyone around him over the age of consent as a potential bed-partner. Also, he's kinky.
And then, in the newest book, there is Moirin mac Fainche. So far, in the first book alone, she has gone to bed with a British tribal prince; a stableboy; the consort to the Queen of Terre D'Ange; the Queen of Terre D'Ange; the Prince of Terre D'Ange; a Chinese martial artist; the future Empress of China- when she was possessed by a dragon; and the future Empress of China, when she was NOT possessed by a dragon. She is a busy, busy woman.
Nearly all of de Sade's characters male and female, the majority of whom, with the arguably exception of Philosophy in the Bedroom, are by any sane standard very sadistic as well.
Well, by an etymological standard, they're *all* sadistic.
Ramayana: Ravana's proclivity for hitting on anything that moves and kidnapping the wives of his enemies as well as trying to rape the daughters of sages like Vedavati, never mind kidnapping Sita comes to bite him.
The Pilfered Princess: Princess Sarah, whose promiscuity is what gets her kidnapped in the first place.
Ignat, one of the Light Others in Night Watch has the magic specialty of being a Light Incubus/Succubus, which means he's an intensely good seducer. He's a self-absorbed guy with "[the] face of a Hollywood actor and [the] body of a Greek god" and doesn't care much about the gender of who he seduces, so long as he's successful.
In Native Tongue - one of Carl Hiaasen's Florida comedy-thillers - a local Glades theme park (run by a scumbag) bought Orky the sexually-frustrated killer whale as an ill-thought-out visitor attraction. Orky attempts pelagic-style loving with pretty much any warm body that enters his tank: these wet and warm bodies include a local TV reporter doing a live segment and the park's roided-out Head of Security (whom Orky found endlessly irresistible...).
In Greek Ninja, Dolores, Eli's demon ex-girlfriend, confronts Sasha all very pleased to have reunited with Eli. The fact he is reincarnated as a girl doesn't seem to bother her, as she refuses to let go and later locks lips with her/him. Meanwhile, she also exclaims "What a treat!" when she sees Daichi.
Menedemos of H. N. Turtletaub's ''Hellenic Traders series will sleep with pretty much anything male or female although he prefers women, especially married women.
James Ellroy's novel White Jazz features Wardell Henry Knox, about whom another character remarks that "he'd fuck a woodpile on the off chance that there was a snake in it".
Live Action TV
Angel: Lorne is something of a G-rated version of this trope; he flirts shamelessly with guys and girls alike, but never appears to have a genuine romantic or sexual attraction to anyone. Andy Hallett gives this a Hand Wave this by merely stating that Lorne loves "all humans".
The Bi-clops (bisexual cyclops) from Kröd Mändoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire. Ever since his messy break-up with his girlfriend and boyfriend, he has been sexing and eating anyone he came across. He was seeing a psychiatrist about it for a while, until he sexed and ate him.
Scott Ross, the utterly amoral biker from HBO's Oz. Some fans called him "Scott Ross, that ho."
Also, Chris Keller.
Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell from Prison Break. According to Knepper (who plays him), "He's a raw animal. He'd [sleep with] anything."
The Todd from Scrubs, beginning in season 5. It has long been a mystery if he was gay, with countless references to it, until "My Lunch", where it was eventually revealed that he's just "The Todd". (Meaning the embodiment of this trope)
Todd: What? The Todd appreciates hotness, regardless of gender.
Not exactly, as it has been shown that he's more of an Anything Regardless of Motion kind of guy. Hint: The On-Call Room bed-humping scene.
Which lead to the great line "Sometimes when I am humping this mattress, I am thinking of that mattress."
Todd: The Todd accepts all applicants, regardless of age or disability.
He did state one time that Laverne ( while on her deathbed) was the only person he would never have sex with, because he respects her too much.
Season 8 has him in a relationship with a married couple.
Played straight — pardon the pun — by Samantha Jones in Sex and the City. Throughout the series Samantha is all about virtually indiscriminate sex, typically with men. However, for a few episodes she becomes involved in a relationship with another woman. She also made it clear that she'd "done the girl thing before."
The funniest part is that when she informs her friends that she's in a relationship with another woman, one of them says in disbelief "You're in a relationship?"
Richie from Bottom is an interesting example in that he would shag anyone that would let him and is desperate enough that he wouldn't care about gender anyway, but he is such an antisocial perverted creep that no one has. He seems to mostly go after women, but in the live shows he has repeatedly propositioned and fantasized about having sex with Eddie. Despite this, he still attempts to stay within the Transparent Closet.
In addition, Tess is known to have been in a sexual relationship with Oliver sometime in the past, briefly hooked up with him again because "I had an itch, and I needed you to scratch it," lusts after the (effectively human) extraterrestrial Clark (even telling him in a deleted scene "You have to stop thinking of me as just your boss," with an eager smile on her face), stands stunned and can barely contain herself upon meeting the scantily-clad alien queen Maxima, and in Season 9 beds an (again, effectively human) alien overlord, Major Zod.
Played with in The IT Crowd. Hyper-sexual Douglas couldn't seem to care less when his date tells him that she used to be a man. They get into a serious relationship, but it turns out that he misheard her confession. When he learns the truth, he breaks it off immediately.
Faith in Buffy. She recounts three ex boyfriends before indicating she plans to make a move on Xander, and succeeds. She tries to sleep with Angel, there's a lot of Les Yay subtext with Buffy, she sleeps with Riley, it's implied she slept with Spike, and she does the deed with Wood. For those counting at home that's at least six guys Faith had bagged in one season (most of season 3 and the final few episodes of season 7,) compared to four for Buffy during the whole series.
Used in a Getting Crap Past the Radar way in Moliere's play Don Juan. At the beginning of the play the Don's servant, Sganarelle, is telling another (male) servant how the fact that Juan married his employer hardly means he will be faithful and comments something like "he would marry any woman... he would marry your horse and even marry you". From the context, the word "marry" seems to be an Unusual Euphemism for something else.
Maureen from Rent. This is the most likely source of Joanne's jealousy issues. Since Maureen left Mark to be with her, Joanne had no way of knowing if Maureen would stick by her through thick and thin or just be another flight of fancy.
Raven from Tales of Vesperia. Not only does he hit on Estelle and Judith he also hits on Yuri. "I've been on pins and needles since we got here, hold my hand!". Of course you could write this off as just joking around but... he really does hit on your entire party regardless of age or sex.
Although he does admit that Rita is too young for him at one point, even if he does make the odd joke here and there. The same presumably goes for Karol, since he says nothing of the kind to him.
Judithpossibly fits this trope. Mostly because she has no problem in showing off her body, flits with Yuri and Raven quite frequently, and even expresses a little disappointment in the PS3 version that Patty is crushing on Yuri and claims to be "taken" because of it. With Judith, it's much harder to tell if she's joking or not because she always sounds dead serious in everything she says. Even when she's suggesting getting eatenby a monster and escapingby ripping her wayout of its stomach.
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind has Crassius Curio, a quest-giver and high-ranking member of House Hlaalu. Insists on calling the PC things like "dumpling" or "pumpkin pie," no matter the gender, and his first order is to see you naked. However, it's largely implied nothing ''really'' happens... It borders on Extreme Omnisexual, since he does this regardless of player race, and Morrowind is the game with the least human-like Argonians.
Legault from Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword. If you get A support with Isadora he hits on her. If you get A support with Heath he hits on him. Or perhaps he's just got a thing for knights — either way it's possible he wants in both of their pants.
Fallout 2 has a perk called "Gigolo". The description reads "You'll sleep with anything on two legs. Hell, sometimes you're not even that discriminating!"
The latest game in the series: Fallout: New Vegas, is also a good example of this trope. By picking the Lady Killer/Black Widow (unlocks special interactions with NPCs of the opposite sex) and Confirmed Bachelor/Cherchez La Femme (unlocks special interactions with NPCs of the same sex) perks, your character can become a fully open bisexual. Not only that, but the player is even allowed to have sex with Ghouls and Robots in the game! And what's more, the Courier can flirt with light switches and even their own brain in Old World Blues!
Riemsianne la Vaes from Shining Force EXA is depicted as such in Project X Zone. And sure enough, she admits that she kissed Coco Tapioca who is a freaking robot. When asked, she said it was a novel experience. And this is a game that has freaking Morrigan.
Trevor Phillips from Grand Theft Auto V, genuinely doesn't care how he gets his sexual kicks, and indiscriminatingly makes frequent passes at both women and men, and even carves a hole in a teddybear so he can have sex with it. Would count as a Depraved Bisexual in most other fictional universes, but since the Grand Theft Auto 'verse is a Crapsack World he's mainly comic relief.
Trevor's relationship status on lifeinvader: "Any hole's a goal!"
Blazblue: Makoto Nanaya has shown a passing interest in Jin, is heavily implied to have had a history with Kagura, and was one of the girls who was attracted to Ragna in Rachel's gag ending. However, she has also shown interest in her best friends Noel and Tsubaki, and she kissed Mai in Remix Heart. She is all but confirmed as bisexual... Until you realise she also has a hilarious Shotacon relationship with Carl, and had some comments to make about Platinum as well. She also complimented Valkenhayn's maturely-rugged good looks. She also fittingly has a lot of turn-ons, ranging from the mundane to the unconventional to the downrightbizarre. Yet even she has her standards, as she finds Arakune disgusting, Relius and Hazama suspicious, and Yuuki Terumi outright intolerable.
A non-sexual example from Guilty Gear Xrd: Elphelt Valentine is a Love Freak who is hell-bent on getting married. Her victory pose has her pull a marriage contract out of her massive bosom, and her One-Hit KO attack has her shoot her opponent through the heart with a special bullet that makes her victim lovestruck. She's not picky on who she marries, either: it can be with the one guy with a shadowy parasite bound to him, the young comatose man strapped to a mechanized bed, the foxy time-traveling witch who may not be human, the young girl with her heart set on her captain, or even her sister unit Ramlethal!
Mercy from Code Name: Hunter. Justified because she is a succubus, and since she doesn't choose to drain enough life force to harm her partners she needs to "feed" much more often than most.
Subverted near the end, with Grace and Mandy Dying Declaration of Love together; in the sequel, Marcie seems to settle down with Jason.
The sequel Shortpacked! also gives us Conquest (Conni for short), Galasso's daughter. She has had hundreds of partners, of both genders. This is because Galasso wants an heir (he doesn't think Conquest herself is worthy), and has trouble telling men and women apart, so he will order anyone who impresses him to impregnate Conni. He once gave her to a horse in an attempt to breed centaurs. She doesn't mind a bit, and seems to practically consider intercourse a greeting.
The Celeste in Last Res0rt are another example of a species that crossbreeds with just about anything, to the point nobody knows what a "Pure" Celeste would look like (aside from having wings, of course) as all Celeste seem to be amalgamations of two or more different canon species.
In fact one of the contestants is a mostly-human Celeste who started a cult where he convinced members of other species that he could make them human by breeding with him (though it's specifically stated he killed all the men).
Nils from Platinum Grit, who's forever picking up anonymous men and may or may not have had a lesbian relationship with Kate in the backstory. She'll sleep with anything. Well, except Jeremy.
Originally Monette from Something Positive was kind of like this — an apparently-straight girl who inexplicably thought she was a lesbian, and once had sex with a (male) koala. More recently she is portrayed as a (much more stable) bisexual woman in a committed relationship with another woman.
Also Angie, though her liking women is usually more Bi the Way.
And the author frequently portrays himself like this.
Tricia of Indefensible Positions has an excuse for this—her magic is based in chaos, so she grows more powerful as she violates more and more social taboos. At this point, she's worked her way up to having sex with tentacle monsters.
Mona, Frida's coworker, from Love and Tentacles. She managed to have a threeway with two gay guys.
Marsha: "Hey, Diana? Would you come? / I mean HERE. / No, it's just that April's sick, and I could use the company. / For the last time, this is not about sex."
In Space Trawler, Dimitri, a human, will sleep with anything his approxiscan says is 50% sexually compatible or higher. He's only been shown chasing females, but their Bizarre Alien Biology often means the audience can't tell the difference between male and female anyway.
In Jet Dream, while every T-Girl (except for man-crazy Petite) shows some interest in both men and women after her sex change, teen T-Girl Cookie Jarr is an especially enthusiastic bisexual. She loves to dance, and will Twist with boys, and Frug with girls!
From Professor Brothers there are the citizens of Sodom and Gomorrah who as expected are sex fiends. However it goes beyond that to the point where they have sex with rocks painted to look like God's face.
Rosa Fiametta from Survival of the Fittest is perfectly willing to hit on anybody she considers attractive. Once, when she discovered the girl she was flirting with was straight, Rosa transitioned seamlessly to flirting with the other girl she was talking to.
Matthew Payne of Version 1 of the SOTF spinoff "The Program" is also an example of this trope. As well as being pansexual, the first thing he asks Rena Belaire after she rescues him is "Wanna screw?".
Dirty Potter: "Hagrid will fuck anything if it stands still long enough." "That's what your little sister said!"
The Guild: Fawkes will try anything at least once.
Greasepaw's only real restriction is normal intercourse with male werewolves, but that's only because sex between two werewolves always results in a metis growing in the mother's womb, and the first werewolf law is against mating between werewolves. Blowjobs are okay with her though (since she can't get pregnant and it's not technically mating), and she's more than happy to enjoy the womenfolk as well. Hell the first thing she does when she meets any new werewolf is to start groping them.
In Hellsing Abridged Jan mentions that, in addition to Integra, he was going to skull-fuck all of the old guys in the meeting and the random soldier ghoul that happened to be next to him. Alucard is this trope as well:
Alucard: There's no one alive who could comprehend my sexual preference.
Mr(s). Garrison from South Park who has been a closeted gay male who likes to molest children, an open gay male, then got a sex change and became a straight woman, then a lesbian, and finally a (presumably gay?) male again. (S)he's not only slept with Anything That Moves, (s)he's effectively been Anything That Moves.
Except a straight male, and even then, the early episode "Tom's Rhinoplasty" he did seem to enjoy the wimmins after he had the plastic surgery.
He's also had sex with Cartman's pig and a pigeon.
And was upset his father never sexually abused him. He thought his father finally did it, but it was really Kenny G.
In fanfiction, Kenny is usually written this way — aside from being poor, it is his major characterization. However, on the show he primarily is just shown lusting after women (and sometimes, girls his own age).
In fairness, Kenny has been shown to essentially prostitute himself for very low prices, so it wouldn't be too out-of-character for him to be this.
Cartman's mother also fits this trope, as evidenced by the many references to her kinks and especially the "Cartman's Mom Is A Dirty Slut"/"Cartman's Mom Is Still A Dirty Slut" two-parter where it turns out that not only has she slept with everyone including Mr. Garrison, Kyle's Dad, The Mayor and Jesus, but that she's a functional hermaphrodite and actually Cartman's father.
Though later we find out she never was a hermaphrodite and that Cartman's father was actually a Denver Bronco who also happened to father Cartman's arch-nemesis Scott Tenorman.
Gorillaz. Possibly Murdoc Niccals, although this is debatable. On the one hand, he really loves the ladies, but he's also made a few off-the-cuff comments about men when sufficiently drunk. (Not to mention his interestingrelationship with 2D.) Basically, although nothing's been totally confirmed, it's pretty solid Fanon that Murdoc lies somewhere in Depraved Bisexual territory.
Looney Tunes: Pepe Le Pew and it doesn't matter if the cat is male or female (and 1947's "Scent-imental Over You" showed us that it didn't matter if it was a cat, because the object of Pepe's affection in that short was a chihuahua who glued skunk fur onto her body so she can be like the other dogs), so long as she (or he) is painted like a skunk. And the DC Comics version had Pepe go after a black bull (the one who squared off with Bugs in "Bully for Bugs") with a white stripe and several human women who in one way or another have black and white skunk stripes on them.
Randall, Mark's zombie roommate from Ugly Americans, shows a disturbing willingness to sleep with pretty much anyone, and anything. Some of his conquests include three pig women, a walking talking brain creature, a big fat blob thing, a robot(Which turned out to just be the toaster) and so on. His dick actually quit because of this.
Brian: You made love to two Filipino women... and a man.
On Daria,Upchuck will seemingly go after any teenage or adult woman, ignoring how infinitesimal his chances of wooing them are. This also means that, while most people act like Dariais hideous, he'll just as willingly flirt with her as with conventionally attractive characters like the Fashion Club. He also doesn't seem to care if someone is single or not, even going so far as to pursue Brittany's (obviously married) stepmother.
Superjail has Fatty, a fat perverted inmate who obsesses over making sexual advances on just about anything (except Alice, it'd seem). He's hit on his own cellmate Gary, had made creepy advances on Jared, was hinted to be a pedophile when he thought of a woodland creature as a child (intending to have sex with it), but has also shown attraction towards women.
Hayley of American Dad! has shown attraction to both genders, and is generally seen as something of a sex maniac, to the point that her own boyfriend was getting physically tired of keeping up with her in bed. Another episode has her trying to have sex with a man who looks exactly like her father, who was actually her father in disguise (though she didn't know it). Of course, he was devastated to hear that his daughter had become this trope.
