When a character shapeshifts into an animal, {{voluntar|yShapeshifting}}ily [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting or otherwise]], there is a high likelihood that an ''actual'' animal will try to hit on them.

The character may regard their newfound animal admirers as anything from a [[DoggedNiceGuy Dogged Nice Creature]] to an AbhorrentAdmirer, depending on their perceptions of the species in question; unlike BlackComedyRape, the animal intends no real offense with their advances -- the character probably just SmellsSexy, whether they realize it or not.

While it can be (and often is) PlayedForLaughs, it can also be played for all the {{Fanservice}} it is worth, thanks in no small part to RuleThirtyFour: If the character starts [[TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody viewing the animal as attractive]] in return, they might end up hitting on the animal themselves. The consequences of whether or not they can adequately restrain their amorous animal impulses can provide clues to the author's position on the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: it could, for example, [[{{Metamorphosis}} trap the character in animal form forever]].

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In the ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' bonus episode, Mao (a human trapped in a cat's body) is chased by a female in heat. It's played for laughs ''à la'' AbhorrentAdmirer, but that doesn't stop fanfic writers from shipping it.
* Inverted in the ''Anime/SailorMoon S'' movie, where talking cat Luna falls in love with a human man. At the end of the movie, Luna is transformed into a human herself, and she kisses him shortly before turning back into a cat.
** Averted in the Manga side-story which was turned into the Movie. In the manga version Luna and Artemis both have human forms, as does their daughter Diana (though she retians her ears and tails). It's eventually revealed they're aliens when a villain from their home planet, who appears human, attacks them.
* In ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'', when Ichigo accidentally turns into a cat, she gets hit on by a very fat AbhorrentAdmirer cat whose lecherous meows are even translated for the reader/viewer. She gets rescued by another more {{Bishonen}}-looking cat, with whom she shares an AccidentalKiss. Partially subverted, considering [[spoiler:the cat is Ryou, who experimented the transformation ray on himself before turning the girls into Mew Mews.]]
* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', Captain Ginyu accidentally does a [[FreakyFridayFlip body swap]] with a frog. One of the first thing that happens to him when left to his own devices is a female frog having the hots for him. She chases Ginyu for the rest of the series -- interestingly enough, following Ginyu to different planets when needed.
* In an anime-only episode of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', Ryōga Hibiki (who turns into a small black pig when wet) saves an adorable, pink female pig who falls for him. Even after witnessing Ryōga turn back into a human, she still pursues him.
* Inverted in ''Anime/AnimalDetectivesKiruminzoo'', where a CatGirl transformed into a real cat to reject the courting of an AbhorrentAdmirer cat. Realizing his love interest was much younger than him, he immediately lost interest in her. [[ArentYouGoingToRavishMe She was not amused.]]
* Played with in ''Manga/FruitsBasket''. Kyo is possessed by the spirit of [[EasternZodiac the Cat]], and thus [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting sometimes turns into one]] (and can [[SpeaksFluentAnimal understand their speech]]). In one scene, a female cat starts "hitting" on him while he's in his human form, and she gets jealous, scratches him, and leaves when he doesn't pay her any attention. It might very well happen to the other Members of the Zodiac, as well, considering that their respective animals are always attracted to their presence (albeit in a spiritual sense rather than a physical/romantic one).
* All the ''Anime/WolfsRain'' wolves look quite gorgeous in their human illusions.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Timmain in ''ComicBook/ElfQuest'' changed into a wolf and deliberately courted a male wolf so she could have a hybrid wolf-elf cub IE, Timmorn, the first Wolfrider. It's implied that she did so in order to tie the elves in with the planet's "gaia" and ensure the elves' survival there.
* An issue of ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'' has Thor turned into a frog by Loki, and then discovered that the frogs of New York's central park are not only [[TalkingAnimal sentient]], but have a secret kingdom of their own... and their "princess" was attracted to the transformed god!
* Comet the Super-Horse from ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' is a centaur turned horse. He's in love with Supergirl herself, and occasionally dated her while in human form.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* In Disney's ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone'', female squirrels show attraction to Arthur and Merlin while they are transformed. Which results in a SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}} when Merlin reveals his true self, and a huge TearJerker when Arthur's admirer finds out he's really a human.
* In ''Film/TheIncredibleMrLimpet'', when the main live-action character turns into a cartoon fish, he ends up falling for another cartoon fish.
* In the Hungarian animated film ''Animation/WillyTheSparrow'', there's a mild version: one of the female sparrows seems to be attracted to Willy.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* In the film ''Film/StayTuned'', Roy and Helen Knable, after being TrappedInTVLand, end up stuck in a cartoon where they're both mice. Roy says to her "You know for a mouse you look pretty sexy."
* In the movie ''Film/TopSecret'', perhaps inspired by the Russian folklore below, Latrine manages to escape (?) a traitor he's sharing a cow disguise with when a horny bull mistakes them for a real cow. Said traitor spends the next scene walking ''very'' painfully...

* Several variation of the Russian folk joke about the UsefulNotes/RedOctober military commander Vasily Chapaev involve him and his orderly spying on the White Guards in the skin of a cow. Chapaev is in the back, and the orderly is in the front. First the Whites offer some hay for the "cow" to eat, and Chapaev forces the orderly to eat hay. Then the Whites bring in a bull, and now it's the orderly's time to gloat...

* Interestingly used in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' book ''The Fifth Elephant'', as Angua the [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]] has Gavin, an actual wolf, as an ex-boyfriend. Since werewolves are a species on the Disc, rather than a curse, it's strongly implied that this shouldn't be considered any odder than having a "[[InsistentTerminology dwarf]]" as a current boyfriend.
** [[TalkingAnimal Gaspode]] also expressed an attraction to her.
** Inverted with Greebo. His natural form is a one-eyed, battle-scarred cat [[CatsAreMean with a legendary temper]], but whenever HumanityEnsues he becomes so irresistably handsome that his ''aura'' is capable of sexual harassment.
* This is how Belgarath met Poledra in the ''Literature/{{Belgariad}}'' with both in wolf form -- she was an actual wolf, who later learned to shapeshift into a human and other animals from him.
* In the third book of Creator/RobinJarvis' ''Literature/{{Hagwood}}'' trilogy, ''War in Hagwood'', the [[BigBad Big Bad]] Rhiannon transforms herself into an owl. When her provost, a real owl, sees her in her new form, he is besotted with her... so much so that he eats the talisman she used to transform herself so she cannot return to her own shape. Rhiannon does not return his feelings and becomes so furious that she [[spoiler:rips open her provost's chest to retrieve the talisman, killing him.]]
* In ''Literature/TheBartimaeusTrilogy'', the eponymous djinni is hit-on at one point by a pigeon while in that form.
* An owl on Owl, in ''Owl in Love'' by Patrice Kindl.
* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'':
** Tobias, having been [[ShapeshifterModeLock trapped in hawk form]], is aproached by a female hawk at one point. PlayedForDrama rather than for laughs, as Tobias is distressed about retaining his humanity in his new permanent form, and actually considers running away with the female to live as a normal hawk.
** An instance that is more PlayedForLaughs is when Ax morphs a female monkey, and is apparently attractive enough to easily get some male monkeys to approach for the other Animorphs to acquire.
** Ax's human morph (a male composite of all five of the human Animorphs' DNA) has also been described as being attractive, though nothing much ever comes of this in the story.
* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', one of the "rules of skinchanging" is not having sex with normal animals when you are "wearing" an animal's body (the other two rules are not eating human flesh while being an animal, and not trying to steal a body from another human being).

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* While it has some elements of BlackComedyRape, to the extent he chose to do it, [[Myth/NorseMythology Loki]] is famous for changing into a mare to seduce a horse.
* And then there's the various creatures (and objects) that Zeus transformed into when seducing mortal women.
* The Childe Ballad ''The Two Magicians'' combines this trope with ShapeshifterShowdown as well as LovingForce. The male character basically makes sexual advances towards the female one in all of the forms they turn into, both animals and [[SerialEscalation inanimate objects]].

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'', ''Exalted'', ''Exalted''. Especially Lunars, who are often chasing, not chased, so as to create Beastmen.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'', bat familiars will get a crush on Alucard, complete with visible hearts, when he transforms into his bat form.
* At one point in ''VideoGame/LeatherGoddessesOfPhobos'', the player is trapped in a cage with a gorilla of the opposite sex. Examining the gorilla results in: "An uglier creature could not possibly exist." Soon, however, a MadScientist uses a mind transplant to turn the ''player'' into a gorilla. When examining the other gorilla in a cage at this point, the player is told: "Hey, that gorilla ain't bad looking!"
* In ''VideoGame/DayOfTheTentacle'' when Laverne disguises herself as a tentacle a guard starts flirting with her. Not enough to neglect his duties, unfortunately.
* In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', when Mario grabs a Boo Mushroom and transforms into a mustachoid ghost, other Boos will follow him around with hearts appearing above their heads.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* There's an interesting "turnabout" in ''Webcomic/TwoKinds'': a seer is using a stray cat as a medium for spying on the heroes (by [[AnimalEyeSpy 'borrowing' the cats eyes]]), and a friendly (female) dragon decides to lend the heroes a hand... by transforming herself into a cat and 'distracting' the cat long enough for them to get away by boat. The (young, male) seer is suitably flustered by the resulting sensory feedback.
* In ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'', after Tip is bitten by a werewolf, he turns into a small wolf that Sweetheart and the other female talking dogs find very attractive. [[EvenTheGuysWantHim And some of the males.]]
* Marena from ''Webcomic/KeychainOfCreation'' has a few instances of this in her past, being a lunar Exalted.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Housepets}}'', a character [[InvoluntaryTransformation involuntarily changed]] from a human to a Welsh Corgi is said, by another canine character, [[http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/06/14/hot-and-bothered/ to have the potential to "be a real ladykiller"]]. Later, said changed character [[http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/06/28/that-would-be-weird/ is seen hitting on several female canine characters]], albeit under the influence of [[AlienCatnip orange soda]]. He later inverts this trope when he falls in love with a Siberian husky.
** Played straight with Thomas, who after becoming a camel thanks to a curse, finds himself being hit on by his camel companion Sofia.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* [[DownplayedTrope It doesn't involve]] ''[[DownplayedTrope actual]]'' [[DownplayedTrope species change,]] but ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes''' Pepe le Pew's pursuit of a female cat who looks like a skunk following a run-in with some white paint has aspects of this.
* And continued in ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' with Fifi Le Fume, who mistakes both Sylvester {{Expy}} Furball and Wile E. equivalent Calamity for skunks at some point and pursues them.
* A reverse example happens in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SheepInTheBigCity'' when Sheep wishes to be human only to end up attracting [[GrandeDame Lady]] [[RichBitch Rich]][[AbhorrentAdmirer ington.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'': At one point, Ben meets a group of alien heroes, among which is a female Tetraman, the species of his "Fourarms" form. She is clearly attracted to "Fourarms", and while disappointed to find he's really a 10-year-old human, is eager to see him transform into Fourarms again.
* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'': Ben gets this from Princess Attea when he turns into the incursean (humanoid frog alien) named Bullfrag. To his own displeasure, [[TheMindIsAPlayThingOfTheBody the attraction is mutual when he is Bullfrag]].
* A weird inversion in the ''WesternAnimation/ShaunTheSheep'' episode "Party Animals". The sheep have gatecrashed the Farmer's fancy dress party in various costumes, except Shirley, since nothing fitted her, so she's [[ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself gone as herself]]. The Farmer, dressed as a sheep, starts flirting with he under the impression she's a woman in a matching sheep costume.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Fred Harrington, a Canadian psychologist, recounted an evening spent mimicking wolf howls in Minnesota. Whenever he howled, a lone wolf would howl back from nearby -- a little closer each time. He had to call it a night before they came face-to-face, but the next day he found scent markings indicating that a lone adult female had been steadily zeroing in on him. This being February -- close to breeding season for wolves -- he concluded that he was being "checked out, or [possibly] even courted."
