Chick Magnet

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chickmagnet2.jpg
Sorry, ladies. He's Dating Catwoman.

"D-do I really inspire that sort of frothing desire in the female masses?"
Miles Edgeworth, Ace Attorney

A Chick Magnet is a guy who draws girls to him like bears to honey (and if he's not careful, with similar results). He's not The Casanova or Kavorka Man, but he pulls girls in about as fast as they do, if not faster. Unlike these scoundrels, even when he does finally realize the feelings of the girls around him, he never tries to take advantage of them. He can charm the pants off any girl, of about any age, without even trying, and he usually doesn't. He may not know just the right things to say to a girl, but says them anyway. This usually means he ends up with two or more girls vying for his affections at the same time.

This trope comes with an amount of Wish Fulfillment for both genders. Although the main title is "Chick Magnet" because Most Writers Are Male, plenty of Gender Inversion happens because Most Fanfic Writers Are Female. This inversion is called "Dude Magnet".

Overlaps often with the Unlucky Everydude and occasionally Unwanted Harem. Chaste Heroes and Celibate Heroes are highly likely to be this. May result in the Magnet invoking Love You and Everybody if the Magnet doesn't want to break their hearts, or lose any of them if/when they finally choose the person they really love. Cranking this magnetism up results in Even the Guys Want Him/Even the Girls Want Her.

See Mr. Fanservice/Ms. Fanservice for characters designed to be a magnet for real-world people. Compare Clueless Chick Magnet, when the Chick Magnet doesn't even notice the effect they have, and The Charmer, who is seen as charismatic by others, including men. Compare Hello, Nurse!.

Male

    Anime and Manga 
  • General: Pick a Harem anime protagonist. Any Harem anime protagonist.
  • 7 Seeds has Ango, who has at least three girls liking him at the moment, though one has begun to move on. Ryo has at least two girls infatuated with him and Arashi does as well, though he doesn't know about it.
  • Kamijou Touya, Touma's father, of A Certain Magical Index is hinted to be one. Unlike Touma, he's prone to flirting back, even if his wife is standing right next to him. Touma himself generally gets girls through Rescue Romance and his overwhelming idealism.
  • Agito from Air Gear attracts female nurses and doctors without even trying. He winds up in an early chapter, surrounded by a crowd of them.
  • Seiichiro Kitano from Angel Densetsu manages to get four girls hitting on him despite being a Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant and looking like this. His dad too.
  • Tokiwa Takashi from Ask Dr. Rin! is an example who does seem aware of it. However, being completely devoted to the one girl who isn't interested turns him from that to a Stalker with a Crush.
  • Eren Yeager from Attack on Titan is officially parodied as this in Attack on Titan: Junior High; however in-series, romance is nonexistent.
  • America of Axis Powers Hetalia. Two or three sketches have him swooned at by many girls.
  • Takuya Enoki from Aka-chan to Boku (Baby and Me) is this to a lot of girls. When he finds out that several girls are in love with him he almost has a mental breakdown. It appears to run in the family; his widower father Harumi has several coworkers who crush on him, and two little girls at the daycare fight over Takuya's little brother Minoru.
  • Guts from Berserk. While he's initially overshadowed by expert lady killer Griffith during the Golden Age Arc, the series sees him gradually attract a large number of female admirers despite not even trying to or wanting the attention. Causes vary from his handsome looks, badassitude, hidden vulnerability, sense of ideals, blunt candor, capacity for rage and violence, capacity for kindness, or some combination of the above. At the royal dance to celebrate the recapture of Doldrey, he gets surrounded by curious noblewomen, and has to suddenly excuse himself to avoid the hassle. At that time he loved Casca and left the Band of the Hawk thinking he didn't have a chance with her, but upon his return she chose him instead of Griffith. The Eclipse ruined what they had, but that was just the beginning of Guts' lady trouble. There has been a substantial number of teenage girls with a Precocious Crush on him, including Collette, a priest's daughter, Jill, an abused village girl, and Schierke, a witch-in-training (though it's arguable the latter examples also see him as a father figure). Even the villains can't keep their hands off him: Rosine, the fairy-like Apostle who considers Guts to be her rival for Jill's affections, mockingly flirts with him and acknowledges his handsomeness as she prepares to kill him. Slan, the member of the God Hand whose domain is lust, captures and tortures him for her sadomasochistic pleasure. Farnese, a Knight Templar leader of the Holy Iron Chain Knights, started as his enemy but pulled a Heel–Face Turn and became his follower after seeing her faith in the Vatican rendered hollow in the face of his ability to survive in a world of demons. Now she practically worships the ground he walks on, and despite her genuine care for Casca is jealous of Guts' love for her. And there's the possible attraction that Guts inspired in men, in Griffith, whose feelings for Guts might not have been completely platonic.
    • Isidro whose already like a apprentice/son to Guts, follows his example having a gang of girls interested in him after the Conviction Arc. Schierke too (though she denies it) and a even a a mermaid girl Isma, Isidro tires his "charms" on some witch girls- but gets poor results.
  • Black Butler: Sebastian — in the anime, at least. Sebastian has been shown to be attractive to Ciel's aunt, three nuns (one of which he has sex with for information one screen no less), and an angel.
  • Train from Black Cat. He has three women vying for his attention (okay, well, one of them was cut short), but only manages to see them as friends / acquaintances because he's a Chaste Hero. Although he could be considered an even more extreme example in that Even the Guys Want Him.
  • Bleach
    • Ichigo is one in anime filler. Rukia and Nel are rewritten to have Unresolved Sexual Tension with him, including a filler scene where Nel is jealous of Rukia. The first film created romantic tension with Senna and even the filler mod-soul Ririn coos over Ichigo. The only female in canon with romantic interest in Ichigo, Orihime, is usually rewritten by the anime to remove her interest, but even she gets some anime filler Ship Tease with Ichigo.
    • Mizuiro is notorious for being a chick magnet. He's a small, with Raven Hair, Ivory Skin and an angelic face. He regularly nets himself older women who will also mother him, such as providing him with home-cooked meals. He's also mastered the art of the Clueless Chick Magnet. He knows precisely what he's doing but, because girls think he has no idea how attractive he is, it makes him even more desirable to them.
    • In the zanpakutou anime filler, Hyourinmaru is a chick magnet to the female zanpakutou. Tobiume, Haineko and Suzumebachi are all enamoured by him. Tobiume and Haineko even fight over him.
  • Touya and Yukito of Cardcaptor Sakura both have large female followings at their school. Unfortunately for the ladies, they're also the series' official Yaoi Guys.
  • In Castle Town Dandelion, extra materials state Haruka is popular among his female classmates, due to his cool demeanor, good looks, and the fact that he is a prince.
  • Lelouch from Code Geass; even if you ignore his Unwanted Harem full of the usual suspects, Word of God says that a vast majority of the female populace at his Elaborate University High has a thing for him, and that he might even have his own fan club - and all this is before his Ninja Maid sets him up with 108 dates in the second season...
  • Li/Hei from Darker Than Black. Apart from the standard UST with Kirihara, he's also attracted the romantic interest of two Loony Fangirls, a Contractor that regularly forgoes the hat of rational self-interest because she's in love with him, and a girl that isn't even supposed to feel any emotions, much less love. He manages to charm almost every female character who encounters him, really, even several who meet him with their only initial assumption being "Evil, inherently heartless killing machine", and the ones who don't fall for him want to adopt him; his elderly landlady treats him like a surrogate son, and at least one teenage girl decided she wanted him to be her big brother. About the only exception is Season 2's Mina Hazuki, a Psycho Lesbian who Does Not Like Men.
  • Death Note: Light Yagami is, in his own words, "pretty popular with the ladies". He isn't very interested in romance himself, but several times uses his natural appeal to his advantage, and at a few points is quickly and easily able to pick up a girlfriend as part of a plan (not counting Misa Amane's obsession with him).
  • Deltora Quest, just like in the books Lief is very popular among the female crowd even evil sorceress Thaegan finds him cute. Jasmine dislikes any of attention Lief gets from the opposite sex (though this because she has feelings for Lief herself).
    • Dain is this too, in very delicate "love puppy" manner earning the attraction of Jasmine and making Lief jealous but actually it's just a cruel ploy as he's Ol of the Shadow Lord and was only pretending to be innocent to gain trust but unsurprisingly gets done in by Lief... But hey at least it takes outs the competition for Jasmine right?.
  • Allen Walker from D.Gray-Man doesn't do too badly for himself. Rohfa is infatuated with him, Road claims to love him, and one interpretation is that For may have a crush on him. In the second Reverse novel, it is also implied that Lenalee has someone she secretly likes, and that that person is probably Allen. And that's not even getting into the aspect of how Even the Guys Want Him, where Allen is shown to be able to manipulate Komurin (a robot) by turning up his charm (complete with Bishie Sparkle) which makes Komurin fall for him, or how Tyki really really likes Allen. Or how Johnny is obsessed with him to a Ho Yay degree.
  • Yamato "Matt" Ishida is implied to be this in Digimon Adventure 02 due to being in a rock band. The main Fangirl we see is Jun "June" Motomiya, who Matt is completely uninterested in and completely terrified of.
  • Dragon Ball
    • Son Goku even as a kid (as seen in this meme) and with Chi-Chi, Launch (good side), Suno, Snake Princess (in DBZ) and almost every young women in the series except Bulma... Who then falls in love with him as adult, but misses her chance when Goku marries Chi-Chi. Even years in Namek saga, Bulma laments she "missed the boat on that one".
    • Yamcha while shy around beautiful women at first, quickly became a chick magnet when he gets over his shyness. Though it's because of his adoring fangirls that cause his relationship strife with Bulma. And leads to her ditching him for Vegeta later in Z.
  • Dragon Ball Z
    • Krillin of all people, bags two of the most attractive women on the planet Maron and Android 18 the latter of which he marries and names his daughter after the former! Even Green-Skinned Space Babe Zangya finds him "cute". 18 finds other women affection for him annoying and will bring him sharply back down to earth, but she needn't worry as Krillin is very loyal.
    • Son Gohan from briefly shows himself to be quite a hit with the ladies when he enters High School.
    • Trunks both as a kid and teenager attracts women to him like moths, notably Mai from Pliaf's gang though she technically 40 years older than him.
    • Goten in GT, giving off a big Yamcha vibe with his female fanbase
  • Hakuoh, from Duel Masters, was one of these during the first season, but he was too busy being aloof and dealing with the Serious Business of card games to care. After his Heel–Face Turn, the effect seems to wear off.
  • Julio, and especially Saito of The Familiar of Zero. Surprisingly, Saito was unpopular with girls before the start, making him a Cool Loser. Subverted with Guiche; he should be one, but the moment other girls (usually Montmorency) end up seeing or knowing about him two-timing or committing perverse acts (which is... a lot of times) he'd better say goodbye to his pride... and three years of his life.
  • Lancer from Fate/Zero has this as a literal superpower, per his legend - any woman (without sufficient magical resistance, that is) who looks at his face is charmed to fall in love with him. The latest woman to fall for him had enough magical resistance. Even without his superpower, he's really charming.
  • Sagara Sousuke from Full Metal Panic!. Kaname, Tessa, and the novel-only character Nami are all in love with him, Ena Saeki has a crush on him, Mira Kudan apparently also fell for him and "gave her heart to him" ever since he saved her life, and there are strong hints that Grace Weissman (AKA Gray) had some feelings for him (or, at the very least was attracted to him). It's implied that a bunch of girls (and guys) at school harbor crushes on him and find him incredibly good looking... the thing is that his violent behavior and unapproachability keeps them from daring to chase and pursue him. Oh, and he also has one crazy male stalker.
  • Hijikata in Gintama. Apart from being Mr. Fanservice, he is frequently swamped by Tae's fellow hostesses whenever he visits.
  • By the end of Girls Bravo the male lead Yukinari has about four girls after him, or who expressed interest in him at one time or another.
  • Compared to some of the protagonists of harem anime, Van of GUN×SWORD is only modestly successful, since he's only got three women chasing after him most of the time. However, he has the ability to attract women instantly. In episode 10, he receives a proposal of marriage from a successful businesswoman who wanted his assistance as an armor rider; in episode 21, he memorably gets a come on in the middle of battle from an enemy who finds him "adorable."
  • Issei Hyodo in High School D×D has amassed a harem, and quite a lot of girls (and even some guys) do want him. This is especially after he builds some muscle in which his entire class all have a crush on him despite knowing he's one of the three biggest perverts in his class. Humans, devils, an angel, and even a gorilla spirit are attracted to him.
  • Highschool of the Dead: Takashi was Saya's childhood crush and is the center of an ongoing Love Triangle between his crush, Rei, and the impossibly hot Saeko. And while Shizuka isn't really interested (since Takashi's a student, plus she's 10 years older than he is), she implied she'd still be willing to give it up to him, when she thought he wanted to have sex with her.
  • Infinite Stratos has Ichika Orimura. If there's a female in his immediate vicinity, they'll probably be swooning over him. And he's not even in the know of being one!
  • JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
    • Jotaro Kujo from Part 3 was beloved by all the girls at his high school, probably due to his Troubled, but Cute image. They still think he's irresistible when he tells them to go away.
    • This also happens with the other JoJos of the different arcs, including a bit in Part 4 where this happens to another character who was disguised as the hero.
    • Jotaro, Josuke and Giorno all have a crowd of girls begging for their attention near their introductions; Jotaro and Giorno are too cool to dopily embrace it unlike Harem protagonists.
  • Tomoe and Kurama in Kamisama Kiss. The girls in Nanami's class almost start a war over who gets to sit near them.
  • Karakuridouji Ultimo: Murayama. He is so bishonen that school girls run and push desks over to see him and release heart marks while fawning over him.
  • Mikiya in Kara no Kyoukai. Every female character except Touko. Can't compare with Tohno Shiki but yes, definitely Shiki's prototype.
  • In Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, way back at the beginning of the series, there's all those fangirls in the school dying to give Gokudera and Yamamoto chocolates.
    • And in chapter 364 when Dino introduces himself as Tsuna's English teacher quite a few of the girls and one guy blush over how dreamy he is.
  • Fuyuki Hinata of Sgt. Frog has attracted a lot of female attention for a twelve-year-old boy. Girls who have a thing for him include schizo billionaire heiress Momoka, School Newspaper Newshound Chiruyo, a mermaid, a princess on the moon (just go with it) and Alicia Southerncross, an Emotionless Girl with a shape-shifting space entity who happens to be her adopted father on her head.
  • Jing from King of Bandit Jing is definitely a Chick Magnet. 99% of the time, when his adventure has something to do with a girl, she'll fall for him. There's also a reason why they call all the girls in the series "Jing Girls".
  • Keitaro from Love Hina fits in. By the end of the manga, only two girls had not fallen in love with him. One of them was eight years old... the other was his aunt.
  • Maity of Lovely Complex attracts fangirls at Koizumi's school (with Koizumi being one of them) who blush and fawn over his unbuttoned shirt and good looks while releasing heart marks.
  • Apart from the requisite Love Triangle, Macross Frontier's Alto Saotome has an unofficial fanclub including not only the SMS Bridge Bunnies (and Bobby) but also around half of his school's female population — all of whom he's probably prettier than.
  • Suguru Misato of Mahoromatic has all the girls in the series after him, including two (maybe all three) members of triomatic, Mahoro, and his slutty, depraved, insane teacher miss Shikijo.
  • Mahou Sensei Negima!:
    • Negi Springfield is a little too young to be worrying about love. Unfortunately for him, he's also a little too cute for his own good, which draws in girls that don't have any romantic interest in him yet. (A prime example is a chart, apparently made by Chamo, measuring the type and extent of several girls' affection for Negi is partially shown. One girl, while having rather low romantic feelings for him, has a maternal score of 12 out of a possible 10.) Other characters fear the situation is going to get worse once he hits puberty, which has prompted Chisame to wonder if it's not best that they kill him now. He's so irresistible to girls that even the resident Schoolgirl Lesbians have shown attraction to him.
    • Kotaro. Natsumi, Mei and Madoka plus nearly as many nameless fangirls as Negi, yet manages to be even more oblivious than Negi. At least Negi understood the confessions he's gotten and picked up on.
    • Negi's father Nagi was so popular in the magical world that he has an official fan club with at least 96077 members.
  • Maison Ikkoku has Yusaku. He's a less exaggerated example of this trope due to the nature of the story, and has Innocently Insensitive traits to boot.
  • Maken-ki!: As a harem protagonist, Takeru naturally has multiple girls (Haruko, Inaho, Celia, and Love Espada) vying for his affections, for... reasons. Not that he cares about why, since he's all for it, so he basks in his good fortune.
  • Akito Tenkawa of Martian Successor Nadesico manages to attract the eyes of about half the female crew over the course of the series, to the vocal annoyance (and sometimes envy) of some of the male crewmembers. It gets Lampshaded constantly.
  • Yuta from Mermaid Saga, though played in a much more serious and tragic tone than any of the above, as Yuta knows any relationship he gets into will end badly for him. One time, the girl that fell in love with him was killed by her jealous fiance.
  • Mobile Suit Gundam SEED has Kira Yamato.
  • Athrun Zala becomes a more perfect example in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny
  • Paptimus Scirocco of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam fame. It's implied he uses Psychic Powers to subtly manipulate women. A particularly dangerous example, he has managed to weaponize this ability, convincing his lovers to fight & die for the sake of his nebulous goals & it's even implied his ultimate goal may be to use this power on a global scale.
  • In Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun, Mikoshiba and Kashima both have a lot of fans, though Mikoshiba gets embarrassed if he tries flirting back while Kashima is so popular with girls that she seduces everyone around her with superficial charm. Also Suzuki, the male lead in Nozaki's manga, is a stereotypical shoujo male protagonist who of course has all the girls at school fighting over him (even though he only has eyes for female protagonist Mamiko).
  • Suna from My Love Story!! has been one of these since a young age but is utterly uninterested in romance.
  • Naruto:
    • Sasuke Uchiha has so many emotional problems that he hardly even notices the girls that become entranced by him. You could probably count the number of girls his age (and younger... and a bit older...) who don't show attraction to him on a single hand. Considering he gets most of this when he's twelve, it gets a bit ridiculous at times. Things do even out later though.
    • Naruto doesn't do too bad for himself, either. Especially not if you consider the Filler arcs. And the movies (Thinking of a particular post-credits gag in particular...). In fact, The Last reveals that he becomes this in canon after the penultimate manga chapter, what with him saving the world and all. Even Sakura regrets towards the later the end of the series that she hand't given him the time of day.
    • Kakashi Hatake puts his two students to shame, being so handsome the mere glimpse of his face is enough to make Ramen cooks (female and male) fall in love with him. Even when he's usually masked Kakashi is attracting women left right and center (courtesy of filler) or when he's disguised as another man, Sakura thought he was cute. And a former teammate of Kakashi's Rin Nohara was head over hills in love with him during the war even electing to die by his hand when a tailed demon was put inside her, horrifying Kakashi for years to come.
  • Kamo, the male lead in Nejimaki Kagyu attracts a lot of female admirers the moment they look upon him. A problem he has to contend with when some of the female body of the school he teaches at use some rather violent means to gain his attention or try to take out any competition.
  • Rai of Noblesse. He has a whole legion of fangirls at school. Unfortunately for them, he's so...out of it and unapproachable.
  • Played for Laughs with Tenjin in Noragami, believe it or not. As the famous god of academics, he frequently finds himself swamped by high school girls and spirits.
  • One Piece:
    • Luffy, especially with the Kuja Amazons being all over him (though admittedly he's the only man they've ever seen) and Alvida the most beautiful women in East Blue wants him badly. You know you're a big time Chick Magnet when the two women who are considered the most beautiful in the world are head over heels in love with you. Hilariously, Luffy does not have any clue of their attraction to him, nor does he show any attraction to anyone.
    • Sanji and Usopp attract women at parties. Despite one being a Lovable Sex Maniac and the other a Lovable Coward
    • Franky. If his interactions with Senior Pink are any indication, that plus the fact he spent his time as an underworld boss surrounded by two hotties everywhere he went.
    • Cavandish is considered very attractive by women, who often faint upon seeing him.
  • The entire Ouran High School Host Club, but especially Tamaki Suoh, whose good looks, suave manners, and genuine desire to make every girl he meets feel special and happy all make him the club's most popular host, and Haruhi, who is identified by the rest of the club as the "natural type" when she starts attracting fangirls just by being her normal self. Tamaki even gets jealous of her Chick Magnet abilities when she accidentally steals away one of his fangirls, and he rants that it's not fair that she's so good at getting girls when she herself is a girl.
  • Pandora Hearts: Gil in the anime, who was almost attacked by a hoard of frothing horny schoolgirls while in Lutwidge Academy, and to a lesser extent in the manga. Retrace 49 has a horde of noble females swarming around him and Vincent. We already knew Vincent was this as well, but this time we see them well-dressed at a noble party.
  • Pokémon:
    • Ash Ketchum. Many girls (human and Pokémon) have developed feelings for Ash and he's too clueless to notice any of them.
    • Drew, from the Advanced Generation series. He has a whole horde of alarmingly obsessive fangirls. He's not too happy about it, though (this may have something to do with him being about ten).
  • In The Prince of Tennis:
    • Several popular players have their own fanclubs; some of those are Echizen (though Tomoka and Sakuno are the only fangirls seen often), Oishi (in the anime, and much to his discomfort), Keigo Atobe and Hiroshi Wakato from Jyousei Shonan (who also *adores* the attention from the ladies).
    • In one of the fanbooks, Fuji is said to be popular with the girls of his class. Plus there's his young admirer Kurumi Ijuin from the anime.
  • Ranma Saotome of Ranma ½ is a little more competent but no less hapless when it comes to girls. Or guys, for that matter. And let's not get into the whole panda doodle incident. By the end of the series, a massive Love Dodecahedron is formed with him at the centre.
  • By the end of Rebuild of Evangelion 2.22, almost every female character is to some degree in love with Shinji, even the more or less emotionless Rei. By the start of 3.33, however, almost everyone hates him for nearly causing the apocalypse. Everyone except Kaworu, that is.
  • Rental Magica's Itsuki Iba who has at least three girls displaying affection for him, plus a younger one who looks up to him as her "onii-chan", and an older lady sort of likes him. And this doesn't stop on living or humans — one of the three girls is a ghost. Nekoyashiki began to muse aloud when a homunculus joined the ranks of female admirers.
  • Tsukune Aono from Rosario + Vampire. Any female monster who comes within smelling distance of him will want him for her own. This might be because his human blood is highly attractive to any monster, so the women just interpret it as sex appeal. Although his Nice Guy attitude and bishonen appearance are clearly contributing factors. In some chapters it's been shown that human girls find him attractive as well (possibly even his cousin).
  • Ali/Alan of the Sailor Moon anime suddenly gets a lot of fangirls when he transferred to Usagi/Serena's school.
  • Sand Chronicles has Fuji. Despite his questionable personality, many girls in both Shimane and Tokyo adore Fuji for his good looks and cool aura.
  • Nozumu Itoshiki of Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei, the certifiably suicidally depressed teacher whose fashion sense is stuck in the 19th century and whose personal goal is self-annihilation, somehow manages to get almost every girl in his class to fall in love with him by accident (or at the least make him the subject of their various fetishes and insanities, which is just as good... right?)
  • Yuuji from Shakugan no Shana. No only does he have two main Love Interests, he was also involved in...ehh...questionable actions with a female villain, is desired by another female Crimson Denizen for being the vessel of her lover, and becomes actually part of a Love Square due to a third girl clinging to him later on. And he still stays Oblivious to Love for a total of 2 seasons.
  • Makoto Shinozaki, Akina's otaku brother in Shinozaki-san Ki wo Ota Shika ni!, is actually pretty popular with Akina's old friends, much to her horror. However, he isn't interested in girls he's known since childhood, feeling it's a little too close to Brother-Sister Incest and being a lolicon.
  • Rin Tsuchimi of SHUFFLE!. By the end of Essence+ there is no girl shown on screen and has a name that isn't in love with him.
  • Tadase from Shugo Chara!. He has half the female population of his school after him, and he is in 6th grade.
  • Ayumu Narumi from Spiral attracts the attention of Hiyono and Rio thanks to his amazing cooking skills. After he meets Hizumi he goes on to find himself being confessed to nearly every day by girls who had been attracted to him but intimidated by his demeanor and the fact that he hung out with Hiyono all the time.
  • Almost any female from Sword Art Online that knows Kirito for more than a day falls for him. His real life little sisternote  is apparently no exception. Largely because he has a tendency to risk his life to save people he doesn't even know.
  • In Detective School Q, handsome Ryu Amakusa is somewhat of a chick magnet, with girls of all ages (including Megumi Minami and Kyu/Q) blushing at the mere sight of him. Once during a case that happened in Kazuma's school, a flock of several girls no older than 11 years old almost glomp-attacked him, much to his embarrassment.
  • Tenchi Muyo!:
  • Rito of To Love-Ru has so many girls after him, a good majority of which are royalty, that one of the girls has decided that it would be much simpler if he just married all of them. It might also be because she knows she can't win without that solution. And as of sequel "Darkness" roughly 7-8 women all having varying interests in him and theres even a few women who could potentially become part of the harem should circumstances permit.
  • Toradora!:
    • Ryuuji, despite having the Face of a Thug, manages to get all three main female characters in the series to fall in love with him. Even background girls start showing interest when the discover he's very clean, cooks, and sews quite well.
    • Yusaku, Ryuuji's best friend. At the beginning of the series, Taiga is in love with him, Maya has a unreciprocated crush with Kitamura (she calls him Maruo), and it's later revealed that Sumire also likes him, but she rejects his love confession and hide her true feelings because she don't want that he follow her to America.
  • Touta in Mahou Sensei Negima!'s Stealth Sequel UQ Holder! continues the family tradition of the Springfields with at least 4 girls and 1 non-gendered member in his harem by chapter 97. The only reason it's not higher is because UQ Holder started off with a much smaller cast than Negima.
  • Rei from Urusei Yatsura breaks up loving couples just by walking past them, and causes squees whenever anything of the female gender sees him. His being dumb as a plank and loving only food does nothing to dissuade the girls. His transforming into a giant goofy tiger-bull whenever excited might. Sometimes.
  • Ushio from Ushio and Tora. He has at least four girls attracted to him. With the corollary that it comes in handy later giving him enough girls with connections to him to save him from turning into a beast when his soul is trapped in the Beast Spear.
  • Vampire Knight: Kaname. He already has Yuki, Ruka, Sara, and countless screaming Day Class girls who want him. Plus all those Nobles practically shoving their daughters at him at the Aido family's soiree.
  • The tenants in The Wallflower, with varying levels of embracement and sympathy between them. Kyohei, who is poor, is sympathetic since he has to leave most of his jobs due to sexual harassment (even male bosses, and his headmaster at school try to come on to him). Ranmaru is the exact opposite, embracing the role fully to his own advantage.
  • Akio Asakura from Wangan Midnight. In fact, when he ends up repeating his last year of high school due to excessive absences caused by driving the Devil Z at night so much, the lower-grade female students got excited over being able to attend high school with Akio for another year. Said obsession with the Devil Z prevents him from hooking up with them.
  • Keima from The World God Only Knows puts a bit of a unique twist on it. First, he's actually highly unpopular. Second, he wants girls to leave him alone. Third, he's an Invoked Chick Magnet because if he doesn't do it his head will be cut off. Therefore, he has to use tricks from romance games in order to quickly win over girls to free them from spirits possessing them. They are, in short, loving only what he wants them to see though rarely outright lying in the process. That said, it's hinted that a handful of girls would like him anyway since even if he's a nerd, he still has a reputation for mental strength and nonconformity.
  • Yugi of Yu-Gi-Oh! is very much this—the KC Grand Championship in Season 5 has Tea, Rebecca, and Vivian getting into a three-way catfight over him. Joey and Tristan even point this out.
    Joey: Man, Yuge, you're my hero.
    Tristan: So what's your secret?
    Yugi: (awkwardly) Um, natural charm?
  • Fubuki from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX; he's fully aware of his powers, but is too carefree to consider exploiting it. He happily humors the female students who admire him... Most of the time. (In one episode he faces of stampede - literally - of girls chasing after him, and he escapes using a quick disguise.)
  • Both Yako and Mei from Yurara. Mei enjoys the attention and gladly flirts with any girl who talks to him, while Yako's fanclub prefer to admire him from afar, as he is decidedly less sociable.
  • Tetsuo from Yuureitou is a handsome transman who attracts the eyes of quite a few women (and a few men).

    Comicbooks 

DCU

  • Batman:
    • Dick Grayson as Nightwing. Watch out for that smile, ladies. He doesn't realize it, but it's actually a weapon. In one story, Supergirl spontaneously made out with him. She hastily apologized to Starfire, only for her to say she understood. He's also Mr. Fanservice, so they're doing something right there.
    • The apple didn't far fall from the adoptive tree, as Bruce Wayne has never had a problem with the ladies. Well, technically he has, but it's more of a "getting them to go away" problem than a "getting them to come by in the first place" problem.
    • Former Robin and current Red Robin, Tim Drake, is no slouch either. While he's only ever been in a committed relationship with Stephanie (Batgirl), Darla Aquista (the Warlock's Daughter), Hong Kong gangster possibly undercover cop Lynx, Cassandra Sandsmark aka Wondergirl (though they ultimately decided they were Better as Friends), and possibly Cassandra Cain (she wasn't really herself at the time, being drugged up and crazy) have all been attracted to Tim at one time or another. Even Lady Shiva was a bit too touchy-feely with him when they first met than was really necessary.
  • Connor Hawke, the unworldly second Green Arrow, just has to show up for women to start throwing themselves at him. The irony is that unlike his father, Ollie Queen, Connor is a monk-for-life.
  • Superman:
    • The titual character Clark Kent. He's attracted: Lana Lang, Lori Lemaris (a mermaid!), Lois Lane, Cat Grant, Wonder Woman (with plenty of Ship Tease pre-New 52 and a Relationship Upgrade in the New 52 itself), Maxima, Amazing Grace, The Queen Of Fables, La Encantadora, Supergirl!, Ice (Guy Gardner's main squeeze), Obsession (Dana Dearden), a Latina cop, an alien insect queen that had taken Lana's form, and Lyla (a purple-haired chick from Kandor), and hilariously enough, Catwoman. His DCAU incarnation was also noted by Lana Lang to be irresistible even as Clark Kent to girls back in high school, and was teased with Volcana and implied to have been in a relationship with Lashina while brainwashed.
      • Conner Kent has attracted Supergirl, Knockout, Tana Moon, Roxy Leech, Wonder Girl (Cassandra Sandsmark) and Batgirl (Cassandra Cain). Chris Kent was dating Thara Ak-Var, and girls chased him wherever he went. Like father, like sons.
      • In the New 52, Superboy has Ship Tease moments with Caitlin Fairchild, Rose Wilson, and Cassandra Sandsmark. At one point, a random woman dumps her boyfriend and tries to chat him up.
  • Ryan Choi, The All-New Atom, finds himself utterly baffled by the way the women of Ivy Town find him attractive — including at least one supervillainess. He has to be reassured by Wonder Woman herself that there's nothing supernatural about it.

Marvel Universe:

  • Daredevil... the Murdock mojo runs strong enough to leave even Spider-Man envious.
  • The Incredible Hulk, surprisingly enough. A lot of women, both human and non human, seem to fall for him. To date he has been married at least three times (two now dead and one partially insane) and bedded many more. Bruce Banner on the other hand...
  • Peter Parker alias Spider-Man. His lovers' gallery is probably exceeded only by Batman, and in Batman's case most of the relationships are merely used to maintain his playboy image. In fact, the Human Torch "snaps" when he learns that his best bud Spider-Man is actually Peter Parker, who he was extremely envious of for his ability to attract women. Johnny even labeled Peter's ability the "Parker Luck", much to Spidey's amusement, who uses the same term to describe his bad luck. If you still needs proof, take a look at the 'Love Interest' section of this page. He even nabbed Hercules' former wife!
  • X-Men:
    • Wolverine by god, having lived hundreds of years it's a wonder Logan hasn't gotten any ST Ds from the thousands of women he's been with. And being the new leader of the X-Men doubled his magnetism, chicks just can't seemed get enough this hairy manly mutant.
    • Longshot. This may well be a function of his (literal) supernatural luck, but there are other explanations.
    • Cyclops has had at least six different girlfriends, and that's just counting his mainstream version. Psylocke also once tried it on with him. In particular, he seems to be irresistible to telepaths. His younger self has only been in the future for a few months, and has still managed to catch the eye of at least five girls, then again he does display Cyke's Adorkable 100% of the time so it's really not a surprise.
    • Nightcrawler, sweet merciful crap. The guy has a list of girlfriends as long as his tail and all while he's short, blue, and fuzzy. Then again "chicks dig the fuzzy dude".
    • "Chicks dig the fuzzy dude" indeed, as Beast can also count for this trope. During his tenure with the Avengers, it was not rare to see groups of women all over him whenever he went out, more than one expressing interest in running her fingers through his fur.
    • Doug Ramsey/Cypher of the New Mutants. He dated pre-bodyswap Psylocke as well as teammate Wolfsbane, but has also managed to earn himself quite the following of female villains.

Other

  • Archie Andrews from the Archie Comics, for some reason (though the 2015 reboot has him as an attractive, funny musician). Thoroughly deconstructed when Betty brings over some photos of Archie. Veronica points out he's actually kind of ugly. This leads into them realizing he's selfish, boorish, and is generally bad, and they should both dump him. Beat. "You first." "No, you first." They glumly conclude that Archie is some sort of Kavorka Man.
  • Archie Comics' Sonic the Hedgehog has Sonic attract several potential love interests such as Princess Sally, Amy Rose, and Mina Mongoose.
  • The title character of the Den finds that he is this: a strapping, hung and nude hunk whom every female character throws herself at him, and when circumstances permit, he is eager to indulge them.
  • One of the main running gags for Ivar Anni-Padda in Valiant's Timewalker series. Whether he's walking down the street minding his own business, running for his life from the villain of the month or falling from the top of a skyscraper, all anybody can say about it is "Gorgeous!"
  • John Carter in Warlord of Mars, having no less than three Martian women in love with him! His wife Dejah also qualifies as a Dude Magnet.

    Fan Works 
  • Kyon, the titular character in Kyon: Big Damn Hero. Being a brilliant martial artist as well as breaking up an illegal voyeuristic photography ring probably has something to do with it.
    • Koizumi too. All he has to do is walk into Kyon's class, and all the girls just stop what they're doing and stare.
  • In A New ROAD of Misfortune, Touma starts to gather the interest of not only his classmates, the girls from other schools, from his branch companions, but also from his teacher, his trainer, and the secretary's trainer, too. The Kami-yan disease, its called.
  • Children of an Elder God: Shinji is meek, quiet, self-effacing... and girls are obsessed with him. And he has not idea why. Mere minutes after meeting him Asuka was already clinging to him, and Touji commented that Shinji had all girls behind him despite of being a dweeb.
  • The One I Love Is: When the story begins Shinji realizes there are actually several girls drawn to him. Asuka and Rei spend the whole story fighting over him, and he has no idea why they like him and is terrified of hurting either of them.
  • Blaine is a Dude Magnet in Hunting The Unicorn. What he lacks in numbers, he makes up for in sadness. And terror.
  • My Life Can't Lose Its Normality, being a Fix Fic, turns Kyousuke into one of these. So far, every girl in the series (except Manami) acts like a total pervert around him.
  • George in With Strings Attached; he's singled out for sex by Fi'ar and Ma'ar.
    • Paul attracts his share of women (and men), but for one or another reason he never actually wants or gets any.
    • After Ringo defeats Mung, he is mobbed by the Warrior Women and has so much sex that the next day he's “little better than a smear on the ground.”
  • In The Tainted Grimoire, Luso has three girls who definitely likes him. They are Kanin, Anna and Maria.
  • Earth and Sky: Pipsqueak, who is described as "sma-hoking hot", and is eye candy for every mare in his age group. This is especially frustrating for Apple Bloom, before and after they hook up.
  • Despite his cold, cynical personality, Takeru from the Tamers Forever Series is still rather attractive to the ladies.
  • Spike in the Ponies Of Olympus series. In addition to Rarity finally realizing she returns his feelings, Wavedancer and Scales both develop crushes on him, and it's implied Scootaloo has a small one on him as well.]
  • After being sent to the Maken-ki! world in Naruto: Ultimate Maken Shinobi, Naruto manages to attract the affections of, in order, Chacha, Kimi, Azuki, Aki, Minori and Furan, yes he manages to turn a known lesbian bi-sexual. And that isn't even the full list.
    • Kengo manages to justify this (thanks to researching the phenomenom in the hopes of becoming a chick magnet himself) by pointing out that with everything Naruto has done to improve himself, combined with his good looks and....other things, Naruto has become a real life version of the the typical female's fantasy man.
  • Emeris Fillson in Consequences Of Unoriginality is one as a result of a curse that he dubs "the Gary-Stu-ness Effect''. The only character completely immune to it is Princess Celestia.
  • The Unexpected Love Life of Dusk Shine: Dusk Shine(gender flip Twilight) has the mane five girls attracted to him, plus Trixie and Luna.
  • As far as the fanfic community is concerned, all of womankind exists to be shagged by Ranma Saotome. Browse the Ranma 1/2 section at Fanfiction.net, enter Ranma + anybody and watch the sheer number of fics you'll find. This is even more the case on the "Ranma 1/2 Lemon Archive" (NSFW) where you'll literally find hundreds, upon hundreds, of fanfics about Ranma boning women from nearly every anime, manga, video game, and television series under the sun.
  • Cody Anderson of Total Drama Island fame might not have luck with human women, but thanks to a certain pheromone he gives off he is extremely attractive to 'monster' girls. So not long after transferring to Monster High high in A Canadian at Monster High he finds himself with several ghoulfriends, and is being 'at least' eyed up by every other ghoul in school.
  • Emeth in Warriors of the World, to the point that both teenagers and women gasp and whisper when he passes by. He is markedly uncomfortable with the younger generation fawning over him, but uses his good looks and ladies' man skills to get information.
  • Tails the fox himself in the fanfic Tails of the Old Republic, a crossover/ Fusion Fic between Sonic the Hedgehog and the videogame Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. It helps that he's now a strapping young teenager who's gone through an adolescent growth spurt. He's now 14 years old, 4 feet tall, and has a lean, well-cut physique. Tails gets hit upon my multiple characters, much to his confusion and embarrassment.
  • In Collapse of Eastern Fantasy, Touma Kamijou manages to inadvertently attract nearly the entire population of Gensokyo. It is explained that they sense his Imagine Breaker and are filled with fear and bloodlust because it can destroy any of them with a single touch, but this feeling also arouses them.
  • A New Challenger: Naruto has managed to attract Sakura, Karen and Ibuki. Implied with Batsu. Ken has a theory that fighters like them (Ken, Ryu, Naruto, Batsu) tend to attract ActionGirls.
  • Kitsune no Ken: Fist of the Fox: Uchiha Sasuke is the most popular boy at Konoha High School, drooled over and idolized by most of the girls...not like he cares.
  • In Fanfic A Dragons Journey, Spike marries the three brides he HAS to marry barely a couple months into his nearly year-long trip, has an Accidental Marriage to another woman not long after, and there are hints he'll have more wives soon enough, and is quite the gentleman. Yes he's a chick magnet!
  • In Dauntless, Lelouch is this even more so than he was in canon. Once he is outed as a prince, he is quickly voted as "Most Eligible Bachelor" and has crazed fangirls trying to sneak into his residence. Gets downplayed after his arranged marriage. Jeremiah Gottwald is a lesser example when he attends a party at Ashford Academy in his and Suzaku's honor. He is very disturbed by the teenage girls' attraction to him.
  • Naruto in Drifting, many girls are attracted to him because of his selfless personality, the fact that he is very good looking and wears clothes that show off his abs is just icing on the cake. Very much wish fulfillment on the author's part since Naruto was none of those things in canon.
  • Papa Smurf in the Empath: The Luckiest Smurf story "Virtual Smurfality" becomes this when he ends up being the only Smurf left in the Imaginarium beach setting and the imaginary Smurfettes are all chasing after him. Empath in his normal state can sometimes be this.
  • Despair's Last Resort has Hikaru implied to be this. He has a number of fangirls, and is actually relieved that the girls in the resort don't have feelings for him. However, the fact that he's cheated on all his previous girlfriends gives off the implication that he's faking this. But since he's dead, there's no way to know.
  • Discworld:
    • The return of Victor Tugelbend to Ankh-Morpork in A.A. Pessimal's Discworld fics. The former Moving Pictures star, who drove women crazy as a Rudolph Valentino expy, does what many misfits do to earn a living — he joins the City Watch. Carrot and Vimes note how women are really keen to talk to him and how they'll say anything, even to a Detective-Constable of the Cable Street Particulars. Victor himself is embarrassed by the attention and would prefer not to have it. hell, Even the Guys Want Him.
    • Ponder Stibbons gets this too when he visits Earth in The Many Worlds Interpretation. Penny, Bernadette and Amy are the first to notice the striking personal resemblance to an obscure fantasy film actor called Daniel Radcliffe...
  • Weiss Reacts: Jaune Arc. He's smart enough to realise the unfortunate implications upon him, and actively tries to avoid them. Given this is the Reactsverse, his attempts fail horribly.
  • This untiled fan-comic centers around Ezio effortlessly charming all the Soulcalibur V women. Natsu attributes it to his exotic Italian heritage.
  • To his dismay, the Doctor in both Doctor Whooves Adventures and its Recursive Fanfiction Doctor Whooves The Series is quite attractive. Especially in Doctor Whooves The Series, where he has to resort to running the hay away from the incensed (married!) ladies.
  • In Neon Genesis Evangelion: Genocide, Shinji's female classmates are obsessed with him. Shinji doesn't care, and their behavior annoys him or embarrasses him.
  • Kensuke ends up becoming one in Advice and Trust after Rei invokes Magnetic Girlfriend. Asuka and Shinji have a hard time grasping how this happened.
    Asuka: Kensuke Aida has two girlfriends. And it’s their idea. And he’s cancelling on a bunch more girls for them. I want off this planet, Shinji. It’s clearly gone nuts.
  • ''Wandering Pilot'' has Shinji Ikari getting the attention of just about every lady of Queen's Blade. The trope is further reinforced as every woman has their own story and forges different relationships with him, from a Lust Object to a target of jealousy, yet develop steadily as the plot goes on. Also a justified trope as Shinji is an oddball in a world where males are usually antagonized, in addition to powerful healing abilities that make him and his healing abilities even more attracted to one another.

    Films — Animation 
  • Aladdin even when he wasn't pretending to be a prince was making chicks sigh left and right, going around with no shirt probably helped. In the tv series he get the interest of Sadira, Saleen, and (initially) Brawnhilda. He also mentioned that he dated a ton of girls in the past before meeting Jasmine.
  • The villain in Beauty and the Beast, Gaston, has women falling at his feet. He actually seems to be a case of Even the Guys Want Him. The only subversion to his seemingly universal appeal is of course Belle.
  • Hercules attracts a horde of female admirers once he becomes famous (i.e. after killing the hydra). At one point, they scale the walls of his mansion, and are literally fighting over him.
  • Po from Kung Fu Panda attracts Tigress and Viper (yes a tiger and snake have the hots for a panda) and even freaking Angelina Jolie expressed her love for how adorable Po was.
  • Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon, has won the affections of both Astrid and Ruffnut, the former who he started a relationship with.
  • Disney's Peter Pan has Tinker Bell, Wendy, Tiger Lily and a gang of mermaids all over him and easily jealous.
  • Princess Mononoke's Ashitaka manages to effortlessly draw the affection of Irontown's entire female population. Even the married ones.
  • Joaquin from The Book of Life, is popular with the ladies. The Adelita twins certainly like him at the end.

    Films — Live-Action 
  • The title character in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. He also has allied female agents falling for him in the other movies.
  • James Bond just like he's parody above, is a classic chickmaget, thanks to Ian Fleming's Wish Fulfillment. Calling Bond a man whore at this point is a understatement of the century
    • Later Bond movies paint him as more Chivalrous Pervert, as in Sky Fall he can tell when woman is scared when she has no right to be.
  • Marvel Cinematic Universe
    • Tony Stark aka Iron Man following his old man's ways is well known womanizer, partly thanks to immense wealth but also due to his roguish charm. Tony is also a subversion as while he did sleep around with women in his pre-Iron Man days, his stint in a cave with terrorists matured him fast and in deleted scene he even abandons four horny women at a party to go save the world as Iron Man. Tony also drops the playboy ways to settle down Pepper Pots of one the women he actually cares about but Pepper couldn't handle Tony's superhero requirements, leaving Tony quite depressed. [[spoiler though Iron Man is till charming enough to catch the interest of Spidey's Aunt May]]. Robert Downy Jr is never to faar form his character either.
    • Thor both on Asgard and on Earth is like Magento over chicks, with the movies basically treating him as the hottest male in the nine realms, despite the esteemed competition.. And even the business minded lab assistant Helen Cho in the 2nd Avenger movie showed no interest in the hunky members of the avengers but when talking about the party: Will Thor be there?
    • In Captain America: The First Avenger, Howard Stark is the straightforward ladies' man, as shown in his first appearance. Post-procedure Steve was able to catch the attention of a foxy secretary and a starstruck blond due to a combination of his stage celebrity, Greek God physique, courage and Adorkable Nice Guy attitude. Interestingly enough, Peggy was the only woman who was even slightly interested in him in any sense of the word before he got the hot body. This leads to an amusing moment where Bucky points out that he used to be the Chick Magnet while Steve was the one who had trouble getting girls to notice him, and that it's the other way around now that Steve is a Super Soldier.
      • Bucky Barnes chances with the ladies are even lessened now that Hydra turned him into a ready kill machine.
  • With his Samaritan Syndrome and chiseled good looks, Superman is regarded by women as a "guardian angel" rather than a threat. Despite her aloof and cold demeanour, Faora gives him an appreciative once over during their first meeting and Carrie Ferris is completely Distracted by the Sexy, much to her commanding officer's bemusement.
  • Jack Sparrow and Will Turner from Pirates of the Caribbean, without even trying too hard have every woman from Elizabeth to Tia Dama having the hots for them. A few might argue they might also be attracted to each other, but more in a long time-friends kinda way. But Will settled down with Elizabeth while Jack is still swinging single (though some women have tried to tie him down).
  • In My Man Godfrey, the Gentleman butler Godfrey gets both daughters of the family and the maid to fall in love with him, without even trying.
  • Pootie Tang: For the viewers, he's a Kavorka Man, but none of the women in the film can (or want to) resist him. He rejects their affections until being tricked into losing his magical belt.
  • Psycho: Throughout the franchise, Norman has been able to charm and attract several woman. As a teenager, one girl followed him into his house, and the other was a woman in her thirties. Of course, since he was a Serial Killer with Mommy Issues it ended badly. Except in Psycho IV when he finally overcomes his mental problems, and marries a nurse.
  • James Hunt in biopic Rush2013, who allegedly slept with over 5,000 women in his lifetime.
  • X-Men Film Series:
    • Wolverine; Rogue had a crush on him, Jean flirts with him, Mystique attempted to seduce him, Kayla was his girlfriend, plus he had a fling with Mariko and Gwen (the mob boss' daughter).
    • Magneto; he was romantically involved with Ms. Maximoff and Mystique, and in the Alternate Timeline, he was married to Magda.
    • Iceman; Rogue and Kitty Pryde have fallen for him.
    • X-Men: First Class: Charles Xavier has the attention of Amy (the blond woman with heterochromia—she has a Funny Background Event showing her continued interest), his sister figure Raven (who has a crush on him) and Moira (there is a deleted scene where she and Charles are making out after drinking too much champagne, and at the end, they kiss).

    Literature 
  • Nawat Crow in Tamora Pierce's Song of the Lioness. His innocence is compounded by the fact that he's a transformed crow and, in the beginning, misinterpreted kissing as mate-feeding and thought that a reasonable way to substantially increase the number of available warriors was to continuously mate and have nestlings. The fact that he's adorable doesn't hurt either.
  • In Simon Hawke's The Reluctant Sorcerer trilogy, women far and wide find the main character endearing to no end, because his nature strikes them smack-dab in their maternal instinct.
  • FitzChivalry Farseer by the time of Fool's Errand has become one. He's more a Deconstruction, however, because far from being too innocent or even-handed to take advantage of it, he's too emotionally crippled to sustain any kind of romantic relationship, plus being too hung up on his lost love from the first trilogy. When he tries, he ends up sabotaging the relationship pretty severely.
  • Holger Carlsen, the displaced-to-a-magical-world hero of Poul Anderson's Three Hearts and Three Lions, is bemused to find himself the object of eager affection from Morgan le Fay, an Elven enchantress, and a wholesome Swan May. Apparently he never had this much success with women in our world, which the narrator attributes to his having too much concern about hurting their feelings. This is at least partly due to a pair of enchantments placed on him at birth by The Fair Folk: to have the "gift of pleasing" and the "sensibility to return the affection he inspires."
  • Star Wars Expanded Universe:
  • Sir Berit and Sir Bevier, from David Eddings' The Tamuli trilogy. In Bevier's case, he's well aware of his attraction to women but his religious scruples (he's aiming to convert from knight to priest at some point) mean he refuses to act on it. Berit is utterly naive, still completely loyal to the ideal of his vows and completely unaware of the effect he has.
  • Bertram Wooster from Jeeves and Wooster series by P. G. Wodehouse. (The TV series version has the advantage of Hugh Laurie's Puppy-Dog Eyes.) It's not as strange as it first sounds; Bertie's loaded, affable enough and not very hard on the eyes.
  • Finn in Kingdom Keepers. In the first book, Willia, Charlene, and Amanda are all described as being attracted to him. Jez also flirts with him, and Maleficent notes it was sincere.
  • Benjamin Avery, hero of The Pyrates. Every single woman in the book pursues him, from the pirate queen to the jungle princess, but he only has eyes for the admiral's daughter. For her he's not prepared to move beyond kissing until they're married.
  • Paladin of Souls presents Arhys dy Lutiz, who is blessed by the Father of Winter (god of leadership, justice, fatherhood, what engenders fatherhood, and so forth) to an almost embarrassing degree. The chain of events leading to his "condition" started when the sorceress sent to seduce his unmarried bastard half brother got a good look at him.
  • Berrynose in Warrior Cats.
  • Isaac Asimov's Azazel series have a story about a man who was made that by the titular demon (he redesigned his body chemistry to produce a lot of pheromones). Unfortunately, all the girls are extremely jealous... and he ends up with the strongest one (that is, all muscle and brothers to match - 7 to 8 feet tall).
  • Mikael Blomkvist in Stieg Larsson's "The Millennium Trilogy". The amount of women falling over themselves to sleep with this financial journalist is incredible, and one can't help but feel there is a certain amount of wish-fulfillment going on on the author's part. In The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo he is already having a long-term affair with his business partner Erika. Upon moving out to Hedeby island he is quickly seduced by Cecilia Vanger, whom he has an ongoing relationship with throughout the book. Then Lisbeth comes to town as his research partner and ends up falling in love with the guy. In the sequel, The Girl Who Played With Fire, Blomkvist is sleeping with Harriet, the woman he had believed to be dead for 90% of the first book.
  • Harry Potter, though it depends on whether everyone thinks he's crazy or a hero that particular year: Ginny, Cho, Romilda Vane, and Moaning Myrtle.
    • Hermione Lampshades it in Half-Blood Prince by telling him that he's 'never been more fanciable' now that everyone knows he was telling the truth, they can all see the scars on his hand from Umbridge's detentions, and he's hit a growth spurt between school years. Unfortunately, this new-found popularity comes with people like Romilda trying to slip him love potions.
    • Cedric "Pretty Boy" Diggory, to the annoyance of the other boys (especially Harry when Cedric asks Cho out first).
    • Ron Wealsey while little luck at first becomes this after winning at Quidich, but tones it back to win the heart of Hermione.
    • Victor Krum, natural since he's a athlete superstar, even Hemione was attracted to him personalty-wise
    • Neville Long Bottom, no seriously after Taking Alevel In Badass and slicing of Nagini the snake's head (the last piece of Voldermort's soul) pissing off the V man himself Neville has a whole horde admirers... Well it's not like the movies would do the same- HOLY SHIT.
  • Thomas Raith of The Dresden Files, supernaturally so. He tries to hold down a job like a normal person... and keeps losing his job when women throw themselves at him. He eventually solves it, in a rather hilarious but effective way. Harry Dresden himself subverts this trope. He has a surprising amount of offers over the course of his adventures, but most of them are from evil, usually supernatural women (or magical beings taking the form of women) who would use the opportunity to murder him or weaken him. Harry knows this, and it is why he's essentially sworn off having relationships (well, that and severe trauma involving the first woman he loved as a teen). Human women may be attracted to him in that way, but there aren't enough vanilla humans in the series to make that assumption.
  • Laharl in the Disgaea Novels. It seems he was able to attract multiple girls, including, Etna, Flonne, Jade, and Sakura
  • Georgina and Dorothea in Sorcery & Cecelia. The former is just that good-looking. The latter has a spell cast on her to make her irresistible to all men (and she hates it).
  • Jerin Whistler of A Brother's Price is a young man approaching the age of marriage in a world where such creatures are rare and treasured and guarded so as to protect them from "husband raids". When he goes out with his sisters to protect him he gets a lot of stares. In this world well-to-do women will see very few men; maybe their father and grandfather, if they're lucky their brother or husband, if they're very lucky their son, so any man with both eyes and all his teeth would be seen as exotic and attractive, but it's later confirmed that Jerin really is good looking even with other males to compare him to. A lot of people go after him over the course of the book, and it's a decided cause of stress and anguish, especially when he's kidnapped.
  • Song at Dawn: Dragonetz is popular with Alienor, Emerganda, and all of Alienor's ladies (including Estela).
  • Deltora Quest Lief was like this before and after he was King of Deltora, though he only had eyes for Jungle Girl Jasmine.
    • Barda "the bear", is also one, though it took some time to find a women who matched his personality.
    • Adin the first king was like this, due being The Black Smith hunk.
  • Dirk Pitt Adventures: as demonstrated by this quote in Shock Wave;
    "Who else but Dirk Pitt could tramp off into a blizzard on an uninhabited backwater island in the Antarctic and discover a beautiful girl?"
  • Tam from The Last Dragon Chronicles.
  • Due to Kydd's swarthy looks, he attracts note  his fair share of women.
  • Twilight has mainly Edward Cullen. Just about any women in the series acknowledges that he's attractive, including Bella's human friends.
  • Mr. Christian Grey from Fifty Shades of Grey. Word of God says that the only women who aren't attractive to him are either related to him or are lesbians.
  • In Tantei Team KZ Jiken Note, the Academic Athlete nature of Team KZ make them to be this. Because of this, Aya's classmates were utterly jealous of Aya being friends with them. Exaggerated by Kuroki, who, while chaste, seems to have the natural ability to charm schoolgirls wherever he goes.
  • Spinnock Durav from the Kharkanas Trilogy, just barely out of the clueless territory. He is just old enough to join the Wardens of the Outher Reaches, walking eye candy — which the Warden's uniform just so happens to accentuate — , and usually all smiles and flirting. It's not like he's trying, it's just the way he is, but he's got the attention of every female within sight.
  • Jaume of The Dinosaur Lords is a head-turner whenever he goes, and Nuevaropa's fashion style making him a Walking Shirtless Scene off the battlefield doesn't hurt, either.
  • Vimes of Discworld does pretty well for himself, considering he's essentially a grumpy old sod. He manages to win the heart of the richest woman in Ankh-Morpork, three Uberwald sisters are rather interested in the prospects of him ravishing them, and even Vetinari's aunt makes a move!
    Oh dear, here we go again, thought Vimes. Why did I wait until I was married to become strangely attractive to powerful women? Why didn't it happen to me when I was sixteen? I could have done with it then.
  • Journey to Chaos: According to Nolien, he himself and his younger brother, Dosh, are the only boys in Heleti that are not crushing on their sister, Hailey. When she attends the Festival of Arin's Ascension in Dnnac Ledo, she quickly attracts admirers there as well.

    Live-Action TV 
  • Though usually a Handsome Lech who did this intentionally, Face on The A-Team could attract a woman even when he was focusing on something else. For instance, there was the time he had to hide from Col. Decker in a woman's changing stall:
    Woman (to Face): I like your face.
    Face: Uh, you mean...I have an honest face?
    Woman: No, but I like it. *leans in towards him*
    Face: *goes with it and gets laid offscreen in a changing stall*
  • Mitch from Baywatch.
  • In Buffy the Vampire Slayer it's a series-long Running Gag that Xander a chick magnet for demons, attracting them at a supernatural (hah) rate. By the end, every single woman he's ever been interested in or been interested in him is some sort of demon or using demon powers (though retroactively in Cordelia's case). In one episode Xander tried to have a love spell cast for him, and it turned him into a chick magnet for everyone but the target, and things predictably turn murderous when all the girls decide to kill him because he won't be with them.
    • Glies was this in his youth aka Ripper but still gets a lot of female action for high school librarian. But is more a Papa Wolf for Buffy, Xander and Willow.
    • Oz as The Rock Star, and being a Were Wolf only doubled his chances with women, but Willow did not take kindly to it and left him for Tara.
    • Spike though he goes off into "rapey" territory" as a vampire. Is still this trope in his better moments and when he does have a soul. Being a former poet does certainly helped with the women.
  • Series/Angel: titular character of course, in his drunk Irish human days to the long bloody vampire years and even the modern guilty soul filled existence, has dozen of people (both genders) hitting on him. Angel however has trouble in the bedroom as a moment of perfect happiness (aka orgasm) will turn him back into Angelus though this doesn't stop him sleeping around with some women in the later seasons.
    • Wesley, even in his shy nerdy days had a way with ladies, though soon Fred was the only women he cared for... Sniff. fun fact: Alexis Denisof the guy who plays him is happily married to Alyson Hannigan (willow).
    • Charles Gunn both on the streets, working for Angel even at working for Wolfmanhart ladies don't leave him alone.
  • On Cheers, Carla's ex-husband Eddie Tortelli has the odd ability to attract women to him, even though he's rude and isn't all-too good looking. (In fact, at the end of one episode where Diane tells him off by claiming he has no such powers, he proves her wrong by simply breathing into her ear and making her swoon.) He can't seem to hold onto them, however. Not only did Carla divorce him for being a two-timer and a deadbeat father, but his second wife Loretta did too (but she came back to him later). Carla later tells her son's fiancé that this is common of Tortelli men, but she still marries him.
  • Auggie Anderson from Covert Affairs. It's played with a couple of times. One typical example:
    • Auggie is boarding a plane to Istanbul to attend a jazz festival and talking to Annie on the phone.
    Annie: ...How, exactly, does a blind man navigate a huge music festival in a foreign city?
    Auggie: I know Istanbul better than some Turks, and for anything I don't know, I can always make a friend.
    • They're interrupted by a stewardess on the plane, who goes from slightly annoyed to blatantly hitting on Auggie within about ten seconds. Auggie doesn't seem to mind! After he gets back to the phone conversation;
    Annie: ...Made a friend already, huh.
  • While Doctor Who was originally No Hugging, No Kissing, the new series turns the Doctor into this, sometimes clueless and sometimes not. Most of his companions, even the temporary ones, show some sort of interest in him, he's had multiple Accidental Marriages (including one to Marilyn Monroe), and even the TARDIS is in love with him.
    • In one of the earliest stories the First Doctor uses charm to get information out of an attractive older woman, she falls seriously in love, proposes marriage, and is heartbroken when the Doctor leaves. He is so upset by the pain he has inadvertantly caused that he swears off romance for eight incarnations.
    • Captain Jack Harkness is the poster boy for Extreme Omnisexual, which is good for him considering men and women of numerous species want a piece of him.
  • Benton Fraser of Due South, to the continual frustration of everyone around him.
  • John Crichton of Farscape. In addition to his main love interest Aeryn, there was Gilina, Chiana, Jenavian, Jool... any female character to show up in the show instantly falls for Crichton or at least gets ship-teased with him pretty intensely.
  • Will from Glee, having his wife Terri and guidance counselor Emma. Add to that, Rachel, Suzy Pepper, Shelby, April, and Holly.
    • Also, Puck. He's portrayed as a womanizer since day one, and when he opens a pool business he finds himself sleeping with various single moms she works for. And he has no shortage of girls his age either: there's Quinn (mother of his baby), Rachel (with who he hooked up twice, the second time while she's with Finn), Santana (dated and had sex multiple times before she comes out), Brittany (both admitted having sex with each other before the series begin), Mercedes (they date during an episode of season 1, and there's also quite a bit of Ship Tease later on), Lauren (his girlfriend in season 2), Kitty (who he dates during most of season 4) and Shelby (his baby's adoptive mom, with who he has sex with on season 3).
  • Nate Archibald from the Gossip Girl series.
  • Fonzie from Happy Days. Played with big time in the famous outtake where a prank was played by having all the *guys* crowd around him when he snapped his fingers instead of the girls.
  • Duncan MacLeod in Highlander...his frequent bedding of female guest stars was lampshaded in the parody song on one of the commercial outtake tapes. "He'll chop a head and land in bed with this week's guest star..."
  • House
    • Even though House is a miserable bastard nearing his fifties, nearly every woman on the show looks at him like they want to take him into a supply closet and jump his bones. His eyes can't be that pretty, can they?
    • Chase, the resident Pretty Boy. It becomes a plot point in the episode "Private Lives", where he fails to deliberately turn women off while Speed Dating (due to a bet with House). Even if he pretends to be an obnoxious jobless moron, all women still want to date him, only because of his good looks.
  • iCarly:
    • Spencer Shay, with Sasha, Miss Ackerman, Mrs. Benson (in an alternate universe), an art teacher, Gibby's mom, a female juggler, an 80 year old man, the woman who inherited Galini's pie shop, and more.
    • Freddie, with Valerie, Shannon, Rona (alternate universe), Melanie, Shelby Marx, Magic Malika, Jamie, Ariana, Leslie, Sabrina, Patrice, three random girls at a party ("iPity the Nevel") and the female fandom in "iStart a Fanwar", without mentioning that he dated both female leads of the show.
  • In Kamen Rider Hayato Ichimonji had three women fawning over him when he first debuted.
  • Divorce lawyer Arnie Becker from L.A. Law.
  • Leave It to Beaver: Wally Cleaver was never too concerned about girls, but the girls all seemed to consider him the hottest catch in school.
  • Don Draper, in Mad Men, can't go anywhere without being hit on by some girl or another. Unlike most examples, though, Don is perfectly willing to sleep with them, despite being married.
  • Billy Cranston from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers picked up plenty of girls over the series.
  • Person of Interest: Lampshaded by a snarking Finch in "No Good Deed" when Reese fails to charm a receptionist into letting him in a building:
    "I'm surprised, Mr. Reese, that nice young lady seemed somehow impervious to your charm."
  • Er Kang in Princess Returning Pearl. Yong Qi even mocks him about it.
  • The wheelchair-bound Dr. John Ballard in Seven Days.
  • In Smallville, Clark Kent is this to ridiculous levels (and not without reason, judging from the squeeing fangirls). From main characters like Chloe, Lana, Lois and Tess, to minor characters like Zatanna, Maxima, Alicia, Kyla, not a single girl has not drooled over him, in most cases repeatedly.
  • Daniel Jackson of Stargate SG-1 had a new woman attracted to him nearly every single time they went to a new planet, including from several different species, and had more love interests than any other SG-1 member (all of whom died); he was even raped by a Goa'uld once. It is very telling that when a Kull Warrior (actually Vala in disguise) calls him attractive, he doesn't doubt it at all.
  • Captain Kirk in Star Trek: The Original Series. Spock also seems to be the object of a lot of female interest.
    • Riker in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Riker? Most discerning Green Skinned Space Babes looked right through him to Captain Picard. Rowr.
    • The Doctor plays one in his daydreams in the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Tinker, Tenor, Doctor, Spy." He later becomes one for real by accident in "Virtuoso."
  • Davy Jones in The Monkees. One episode has the guys playing Spin The Bottle, with the bottle's mouth homing in on him every time. When he goes into another room, the bottle flies off the table and sticks to the door...
  • Stefan from The Vampire Diaries never has a shortage of girls looking his way. Neither does his brother Damon, but Stefan gets noticeably more attention than him from the females because he's much nicer than him.
  • Beck from Victorious though he's totally commited to long-time girlfriend Jade.
  • Justin from Wizards of Waverly Place. He also seems to be a vampire, a werewolf and a centaur chick magnet.
  • Johnson Lee plays with this trope in Sze U Tonight, mainly because the Hong Kong paparazzi keep romantically pairing him with female stars.
  • Napoleon Solo of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is such a Casanova with Chick Magnet tendencies, that it sometimes overshadows (and sometimes doesn't) the fact that his partner Illya Kuryakin is also very much a Chick Magnet in his own right. Kuryakin is just more subtle about it. According to one of the show's producers "Illya doesn't chase girls. Girls chase Illya!"
  • On Everybody Hates Chris, Chris' brother Drew is this, even at age 11. In "Valentine's Day", Rochelle even has to threaten a much older woman who shows up at the door with calling the cops.

    Music 
  • The subject of the Carl Perkins song "Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby", quite fittingly covered by George Harrison of The Beatles.
    Went out last night, half-past four, fifteen women knockin' on my door...
    Went out last night, I didn't stay late, 'fore I got home I had nineteen dates...

    Mythology 
  • Adonis of Greek Mythology. So handsome that two goddesses fell in love with him at first sight. Aphrodite took a shine to him when he was born and Persephone fell for him when he was about thirteen. It didn't end well for Adonis — when he eventually chose Aphrodite, a furious Persephone told Aphrodite's former lover Ares about Aphrodite's new beau. Ares turned into a boar and attacked Adonis while he was out hunting. Since Ares is a jerk, he killed Adonis by goring him in the crotch.
  • Diarmid O'Dyna of Celtic Mythology (who was Lancer in the aforementioned Fate/Zero) had this as an actual magical ability — any woman who looked at his face would instantly fall in love with him. One of these was a woman who caught sight of him at her own wedding party. Her husband-to-be didn't take it very well.

     Newspaper Comics 
  • In Popeye, Because of his silver tongue, Wimpy certainly didn't have a hard time wooing the ladies, and would definitely try if he heard they had access to hamburgers. He even had an occasional relationship with Popeye's arch enemy, the Sea Hag.

    Pinball 
  • In Big Bang Bar, the animated display for "Get Lucky" shows a four-eyed alien who's suddenly peppered with kisses by various females.

    Podcasts 

    Professional Wrestling 
  • The Miz in the WWE used to call himself a Chick Magnet, to the point where one of his T-shirts includes a chick (read: baby bird) being drawn to a horseshoe red-and-white magnet, just in case some people didn't get the gist of his gimmick.
  • Daniel Bryan seems to be this in WWE, drawing the WWE Divas to him without even trying (or acting upon it). In one instance, he's got the Bella twins hanging on each arm.
  • And of course, there's CM Punk in Real Life. His known relationships in wrestling include Maria, Beth Phoenix, Daffney, Traci Brooks, and Lita, along with rumored relationships with Kelly Kelly, Mickie James, and Serena. In fact, the "CM" in his name originally stood for "Chick Magnet." These days it stands for anything Punk wants it to be at the time.
  • Ric Flair has a history of women just being drawn to him.
  • The Magnificent Muraco, during the mid 1980s, famously shot several promo videos depicting himself as a man who drew hot, hot, hot, HOT (wolf whistle) young women to him like bees to honey, all while claiming he would either easily beat Hulk Hogan for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship or crush Ricky "the Dragon" Steamboat.

    Video Games 
  • Ragna the Bloodedge of BlazBlue is Ship Teased with Noel, Rachel and Taokaka, and Nu is always eager to stalk Ragna, who is hers and hers only. Taken to the extreme in Rachel's joke ending, where, thanks to Rachel's machinations, he attracts the attention of nearly every female character in the game. Even the ones who normally hate his guts (Kokonoe, Luna), the ones who aren't human (Makoto, Lambda and Nirvava), and the one who's his creepy younger brother Jin.
    • In Chronophantasma, the Spectacles of Eros are back on Ragna's temples (literally) - this time we get Noel, Makoto, Tsubaki, Nirvana, Ignis, Bullet, Litchi, and Kokonoe in on the fun! Celica, too, but she genuinely loves him... which invokes yet another orgy of violence on poor Ragna.
    • To a much, much greater extent, Jin Kisaragi. As shown in the manga, BlazBlue: Remix Heart, he is extremely popular with girls in his Academy days. And in-game, Tsubaki, Rachel, and Makoto have expressed interests in him.
    • Kagura Mutsuki looks to be this, too. One of his winposes has a shapely Fox Beastkin fall RIGHT INTO HIS ARMS- And she's quite pleased about it.
  • Marumaro of Blue Dragon, for all his faults, turns into one of these in Kelaso village. He also manages to score the hottest chick in the game!
  • The main character of Duel Savior Destiny, Taiga, is really rather popular with girls, a fact he exploits to no end. Before the story properly begins he's having a bit of trouble getting dates. That is, getting enough dates since he's working on a plan to get a hundred girlfriends at once, which is only becoming difficult because of the rumors his clingy little sister spreads.
  • Eternal Sonata'has Jazz, who has Claves (The mole, killed off, but can later be resurrected.) as his lover, Falsetto as the envious childhood friend, and Viola, a member of the party who falls for him as they continue their journey but can't bring herself to admit her feelings out loud to him.
  • Fatal Fury: Rock Howard spent most of his adolescence in the company of men, thus explaining his easily-flustered nature around the opposite sex note . While this doesn't affect him much in Garou: Mark of the Wolves, he gets hit full force by this trope in The King of Fighters: Maximum Impact 2. He does so much as breathe, and yet Ninon Beart and Bonne Jenet all but throw themselves at him (they even fight over "custody" of Rock in their intro poses against one another). It doesn't help that he's a lovable dork in these scenes and a kindhearted young man by default.
  • Many protagonists of RPGs, in particular the Final Fantasy series, display this trope, with half of the female cast falling for them on sight. Final Fantasy IX plays with this by casting a childlike wannabe ladies' man as the protagonist.
  • Golden Sun's Isaac has a good hint of this, having Ship Tease moments with Jenna, Mia, Feizhi, Jill (the girl who'd been transformed into a tree), and an unnamed little girl in Altin (who offers him a kiss in thanks for driving away the statue monsters).
  • One of the endings in Harvest Moon SNES can be unlocked if you are unmarried but courted all five of the bachelorettes. It has them chasing Pete around town.
  • Infinite Space has two examples: Yuri (who apparently has Unwanted Harem) and Lord Roth. The latter often appears being surrounded by fangirls whenever Yuri sees him, something that he seems to enjoy (to Nele's chagrin).
  • Roland, the protagonist of Luminous Arc 2, weaponizes his chick magnet status by using some of the superpowers of any woman he can kiss, though he's always a little embarrassed.
  • A male Shepard of Mass Effect, if you don't play him as a complete dick. Over the course of the trilogy, he can have a romantic relationship with Ashley Williams, Dr Liara T'Soni, Tali'Zorah, Miranda Lawson, Jack, Kelly Chambers, Kaidan Alenko, Steve Cortez, and Diana Allers. He has Ship Tease with Samara, Gianna Parsini, and Shiala, possibly has a (very brief) encounter with Morinth, and gets a breeding request from at least one krogan.
    • The Shadow Broker's records suggests the Illusive Man is trying to be a bigger Chick Magnet than Shepard.
    • Garrus is seen as Always Second Best to Shepard, but the guy certainly has something the ladies like. Dr Michel sends him chocolate aboard the Normandy, Kelly Chambers finds him adorable, Tali hooks up with him if she doesn't with Shep, and his Citadel scene is him having a date with a turian lady. And of course he can romance FemShep herself - after narrating the way he let off Steam with a fellow scout when in was in the army.
  • Zero from Mega Man X and Zero had 3 girls who had been attracted to him. One became his tragic girlfriend, while another had the unfortunate luck of meeting Zero when he's both chaste and celibate at the same time. As for the third, Ciel's human. If you count the Foe Yay that comes from Fairy Leviathan of the Four Guardians (which gets dialed down into simple teasing with Model Z and Model L), that makes four.
  • Mega Man Legends: MegaMan Volnutt may have the high score for this series. There's Roll Casket his foster sister, best friend, and mechanic. Tron Bonne, the cute girl of his overzealous off and on enemies of circumstance. Yuna, a flirt temporarily controlling Roll's mother. Sera a dark skinned green haired quiet girl that had given both a Naked First Impression and quite a touching near death revelation. Volnutt also has at least four NPC girls profess infatuation to him in some way beyond the trend much more predominant in the first game to have every female citizen model passingly mention that he was cute.
  • Monkey Island: Despite his nerdiness, occasionally Guybrush Threepwood falls into this. Elaine seems to initially fall for him just after hearing his name from the lookout. The ghost bride in the Goodsoup crypt starts coming onto him immediately (granted, she's been waiting a LONG time for a man). He's oblivious that Morgan seems to have feelings for him beyond typical fangirlishness. And the Vacaylian merfolk practically throw themselves at him, to his extreme discomfort, as he can't tell what gender they are.
  • The Hero from the Quest for Glory series. The Fairies in Quest for Glory I tease one of their number for having a crush on you (she denies it) and he can flirt with the Centaur farmer's daughter. Dinarzad the Money Changer from Quest for Glory II flirts with him heavily, and if the Hero is a Thief so does the entire Raseir harem. Quest for Glory III has the Leopardwoman Johari, with whom the Hero can share a kiss (though she agrees to marry Yesufu at the end of the game) and the Welcome Woman who runs the local inn in Tarna flirts very heavily with you, even though she's married. Not even dead women are immune to the Hero's charms in Quest for Glory IV, namely Erana, the Rusalka, and Katrina, and it's implied that Magda, leader of the Gypsies, finds the Hero quite attractive, though admits she's much too old for him. Quest for Glory V manages to top them all: Erana, Katrina, Elsa von Spielberg, and Nawar are all courtable love interests, the Hero also gets a lot of flirting from Nawar's fellow ex-harem girl Budar, Gnome Anne shows a bit of an attraction to the Hero, and Rakeesh admits he would consider marrying him if he weren't already married.
  • Shulk wins the affections of Fiora and has Melia crushing on him in Xenoblade Chronicles. When he is shot in the back by Dickson, literally every woman in the party are the first to react and cry out his name in unison as they rush to his aid. Cut to a shot of Fiora kneeling beside him as Sharla performs CPR on his chest as Melia questions Dickson's actions.
  • Clank, Ratchet's Robot Buddy from the Ratchet & Clank series has a strange habit of attracting various women, both robotic and organic. This starts with Edwina the RoboShack owner and the HelpDesk Girl in the first game, then a pink robot fangirl spends the next game chasing him over the galaxy in the next game, then in the third game, he gets to play a James Bond-esque secret agent surrounded by adoring women, has pop star seductress Courtney Gears move in on him, in the fourth game, he begins a relationship with a robot called Venus (who is never seen again), in the Secret Agent Clank spinoff, all women in the game are in love with him. Meanwhile, the only definite love interest Ratchet has ever had is Sasha (Talwyn from the Future series seems to be on her way to becoming one, too, though).
  • Ein from Riviera: The Promised Land, who develops five love interests throughout the game.
  • Shin Megami Tensei: Persona:
    • Minato, the main character of Persona 3, starts off all his relationships with girls as just friends, but they quickly move things along and, whether he likes it or not, he becomes their boyfriend. His "harem" included the popular girl, the rich girl, the nerdy girl, the bookworm, the tomboy, a little girl who proposes to him, a robot, a transdimensional elevator attendant, and is essentially the subject of the affections of his teacher.
      • Akihiko, who as the "cool upperclassman" type is frequently swarmed by fangirls at school. Unlike the protagonist, Akihiko is mostly annoyed by the attention and proves to be shy and awkward when trying to approach girls directly, to his detriment.
      • In Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Ken seems to have stepped into his upperclassman Akihiko's shoes in this regard. His opening cutscene shows a sizable, dedicated fanclub of girls cheering for him during a soccer match... who he politely acknowledges and dismisses. Though he's not as awkward with them as Akihiko, Ken doesn't seem to pay them much attention—he clearly has more important priorities on his mind.
    • Tatsuya from Persona 2 is explicitly shown to be a chick magnet. Almost all the female cast wants him, major or minor characters. Even some of the guys want him.
    • Souji/Yu of Persona 4 is just as popular as Minato with girls (maybe even more popular). And unlike Persona 3, you can just be friends, and still max out your relationship.
  • Despite being a mecha otaku with no knowledge on romance with women nor interest in them, Ryusei Date from Shin Super Robot Wars has managed to make no less than three girls seriously fall for him in the Original Generation series. In the scene where the Londo Bell meets Ryusei Date during the Space Route in Shin, he manages to make Kouji Kabuto jealous of Sayaka Yumi for once instead of the reverse. This is considerably more than most other characters with the exception of Masaki, who is himself a Chick Magnet.
  • Despite being a self-professed women-hater, Crowe Broust of the Super Robot Wars Z series has a ridiculous amount of women who are interested in him. Esther, Marguerite and Kravia all have obvious crushes on him, Traia appears to be invested in keeping him around, if only for trolling value, Marilyn has a pet nickname for him, and Suzune even swoons briefly at how 'cool' he is when he first appears in Tengoku-hen, even previous protagonist Setsuko falls for him.
  • The title character of Sonic the Hedgehog is somewhat portrayed this way in the games, even getting a human character to fall in love with him, however this isn't to the extent of the Archie Comics. As he says in Sonic Battle: "Got enough girls chasing me as it is."
  • Mario in the Paper Mario games is treated as such.
  • Vyse, the hero of Skies of Arcadia is a real hit with the ladies. Over the course of the game he attracts the affections of his redheaded partner Aika, the Mysterious Waif Fina, the Valuan admiral Belleza, several minor characters such as all three of the Ixa'ness Demons and various barmaids and shopkeeper NPCs, the butterball moneylender Osman... Heck, even Daikokuya likes him. Being a gentleman rogue, he never acts on any of them.
  • Suikoden:
    • Random women hitting on Flik is something of a running gag. In the first game, one character only joins the group on the condition that he'll go on a date with her, and in the second he gets several more fangirls; one even has a Unite Attack with him where she breaks out in a Luminescent Blush.
    • In Suikoden IV, the hero recruits an awful lot of women, and at least two cliques of three get together to gush and giggle over him. One of said cliques even declares themselves his personal bodyguards.
    • The Prince of Falena, in Suikoden V. Several characters and NPCs comment on the large number of attractive women in his army, to the point of it being a Running Gag. The more lecherous characters seem almost offended that he never takes advantage of the situation, or even seems to notice.
  • Guy from Tales of the Abyss. Unfortunately he also suffers from severe gynophobia and thus ends up freaking himself out every time he accidentally manages to charm a girl to take interest in him.
    • Flynn from Tales of Vesperia has women throwing themselves to him for as long as his childhood friend can remember. The party's Chivalrous Pervert takes him to pick up girls only to find that girls swarm over Flynn, ignoring him.
    • While it's rather downplayed in Tales of Symphonia (only really gaining the affections of Colette and Sheena), Lloyd Irving definitely counts in Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World (as every female variation of the Flanoir event is romantic, even with his teacher, as well as the actually 28, but looks 12 because of stunted growth Glacier Waif).
  • The Legend of Zelda:
    • Link in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has Malon, Saria (before Link grew up), and Zora Princess Ruto all wanting him, possibly Nabooru, and Word of God is that Navi was in love with Link. The only major good female character who didn't express some form of affection toward him was Impa (and maybe Zelda herself, but that's a whole other can of worms), who was more of a mentor figure than anything else. Not bad for someone who never speaks, and is essentially a 9 year old in a 16 year old's body. Word of God says that even Princess Zelda is into him.
    • In 'The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds'' he has Ship Tease with Zelda as well as a grown woman in Kakariko Village.
    • In Twilight Princess, not only does he get Midna and Ilia, but the girl who runs the fishing hole seemed to have a definite thing for him. Then there's the group of fangirls he gains by making it through the clawshot minigame in Hyrule Town. Telma also has a thing for him as shown by her flirtatious winks. Then there's Beth who also likes him.
    • In The Legendof Zelda Skyward Sword, Link presumably has Ghirahim all over him, as well as Peatrice (only as long as Link accepts her feelings in the dating sidequest), Karane, Kina, Zelda AND Fi. In the case of Kina, not only she proclaims to be a fan of his if the player performs flawlessly in the harp minigame, but the conversations between the two also spark jealousy regarding her from another NPC.
    • The Oracle games' Link was popular, too. The titular Oracles, Zelda, Malon, possibly Maple, Rosa the Subrosian, the Maku Tree of Labrynna... and in the unofficial Oracle of Seasons manga, Link's own pet Cucco.
    • The plot of Hyrule Warriors is kicked off because one of the main antagonists has intense feelings for Link. In Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U, even Viridi (one of Pit's mission control voices) develops feelings for him.
  • Mike Munroe in Until Dawn has three girls after him over the course of the game: Emily, Jessica, and Hannah. Josh suggests Ashley might also be after him if Chris shows interest in her, plus all that Ship Tease with Samantha.
  • Adol Christin of the Ys series tends to get a good deal of female attention. One expects a wave of red-haired kids to cause trouble throughout Europa in a couple decades.
  • Persona 5: The protagonist can simultaneously attract the attention of every last female party member and most of the female NPCs with a Level-Up at Intimacy 5, Visual Novel-esque vignette, for a total of 9 women. This includes girls in every year at his high school, a girl from another high school, a former political reporter, a medical doctor, and his homeroom teacher.

    Visual Novels 
  • Miles Edgeworth in Ace Attorney, according to Gumshoe. His response to this is one of shock: "D-do I really inspire that sort of frothing desire in the female masses?!"
  • Hiroki in Canvas 2 has seven heroines, an optional sex encounter and numerous students after him. And he's completely unaware.
  • Yuuto in Eien no Aselia was popular at his school before ending up in Phantasmorgia, and after that he ends up winning the affections of essentially every named female in the cast.
  • Okazaki Tomoya of CLANNAD. Ends up with six girls in love with him, and denies that any of them are.
  • Riki of Little Busters! is a marginal example at best: while he's surrounded by girls who like him, only one claims to have had a crush on him from before the beginning of her route, so at best there are only ever two after him at once. Instead, it's just that he's a nice guy and, as a character speculates, because he's cute and so attracts people who want to look after him.
    • Conversely, Kengo and Kyousuke are said to be quite popular with girls, but since neither of them are all that interested in all that it's something of an Informed Ability.
  • Yuuichi Aizawa from Kanon is often considered the one true capable harem leader; all 5 girls fall in love with him and he even gains the trust of the 3 supporting ones. He does not think of himself as a magnet, nor purposely tries to attract girls, nor ever notices how popular he is with the opposite sex.
  • Hisao Nakai of Katawa Shoujo has five very good looking women as potential love interest within only three days of arriving at Yamaku. Its a pity that he is there because of his cogential arrythmia.
  • Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai! has Cap and Touma, who're both popular enough to have their own fan clubs. However, the series' main protagonist, Yamato, may very well be the king of this trope as he has literally dozens of potential love interests throughout the series.
  • Souji in Suika to the extent that random girls walking up to him on the street and kissing him is not that strange an occurrence for him.
  • Tsukihime: All hail Shiki! Wielder of the Tohno gland! Any female character, and any potential female protagonist, ever. The number of females Shiki hasn't charmed to some extent can be counted on one hand.
  • Emiya Shirou from Fate/stay night. He starts the game with at least four girls crushing at or potentially interested in him to some degree or other (Sakura being the most obvious, plus Rin, Ayako and possibly even Taiga), and as the Grail War goes on both Saber and Rider. Though she probably doesn't quite fall for him, even Ilya at least seems to find him charming or interesting in some way (though if it's mostly in the 'big brother' sense), and Caster (a declared man hater) expressed respect for him. And Issei seems to be gay for him too, just to top it off.
  • In Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA Shirou has the unnoticed favours of Illyasviel von Einzbern, her Dark Secret Identity Kuro (think Illya in Archer fashion), their best friend Miyu and Rin Tohsaka, Sakura Matou and Luvia Edelfeldt. Also, he seems to have a questionably good relationship with Cool Big Sis Sella.
  • Rin in Tick Tack is noted by both Sage and Ai to be rather good at getting close to women, apparently due to the way he can give romantic seeming lines without intending to and has no apparent ulterior motives. This allows him to get close to them while Itsuki completely fails at flirting.
  • The Tokimeki Memorial series has a few of them, with the good-looking and popular Takumi Oosawa, Tooru Sawatari, and Jun Ebisutani in the first game's saga, and Teru Saeki, Katsumi Shiba, and Shota Amachi in Girl's Side 2.
    • In the original Tokimeki Memorial this is Rei Ijuin's gimmick. On Valentine's Day he has to bring a truck to school to fit all the chocolates he receives. He's actually A Sweet Polly Oliver and a winnable girl in the game.
  • Ayumu from Yumina The Ethereal is pretty popular. Apart from the heroines (though only one at a time except maybe Yumina) there are also the girls from the first four chapters, the club leader of the Arabian Dance club and background girls saying he looks pretty cool during his introduction to the school and planning to hit on him.
  • In Grisaia no Kajitsu had five love interests, his boss and the principal crushing on him plus his sister acting very suspicious in a flashback. In Grisaia No Meikyuu we learn he was warned by his sister who knew he'd be popular to be careful with girl's hearts and by the time Grisaia no Rakuen finally rolled around he has all those girls from before plus the pilot Millie, his boss' assistant, an evil terrorist, his dead master and a couple other minor characters, bringing the total to essentially every female character he ever met apart from his mom and one drill sergeant.
  • Kaine from A Profile, which is funny considering he's not even the protagonist. He actually gets more attention from girls than Masayuki does. But if it wasn't for the fact that Masayuki hangs around with Miou, a suspected prostitute, he would get even more attention.

    "A gravitational force that draws nearly all women in his direction"
  • Thunderbird, in the Whateley Universe. He's gotten all the way into his sophomore year at Whateley Academy without noticing that all the girls on his training team, that girl who is always on his case about something, and that girl he thinks of as a 'little sister' are all crushing on him. Now he has Chaka after him too.
  • Ultra Fast Pony. Applejack mentions that her brother Big Macintosh's party was a big hit. There's a brief flashback to Big Mac atop a pile of lovestruck mares, all screaming with happiness.
    Big Mac: Yarr! I be covered in booty!
  • Devil Boner from The Nostalgia Critic. His Mr. Fanservice status was acknowledged in Mad Max: Fury Road, where being a feminist (added onto the leather, the eyeliner and the 'bad boy' status) makes both Curiosa and Hyper attracted to him.
  • Duke Devlin of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series. If having theme music of Justin Timberlake's "Sexy Back" whenever he talks isn't enough, he has an appeal that even guys notice. From those countless fangirls, to the pretty hair, and those gorgeous green eyes.
    Duke: Don't forget my sweet ass.

    Western Animation 
  • A lot of princesses from Adventure Time have shown romantic interest in Finn, but being the Last of His Kind means all of the girls are either dogs, elephants, slugs, cloud-like lumps, etc. The only female he is genuinely interested in doesn't reciprocate.

Unfortunately he ends up breaking her heart and loses her to Cinnamon Bun, of all people.
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender has Sokka, who has had four girls swooning during the series, only liking two of them back (the first didn't end well) and not even being aware of one, and Zuko, aside from his girlfriend, attracted two girls he has met, plus a few additional ones when he went shirtless.
  • Ben 10:
    • Max Tennyson. Bonus points in that at least two of 'em (Xylene and Verdona, the latter of whom is Ben and Gwen's grandmother) were extraterrestrials. Even better, he's still got it even as an old man. And it's implied that that's not even the full story!
    • Ben himself wasn't one in the original series, but the sequels, especially Ultimate Alien and Omniverse, allow him to get some as well. He has attracted the attention of Julie Yamamoto, Eunice, Elena Validus, Jennifer Nocturne (though for publicity), Ester, Princess Attea, and even ended up accidental fiancé to a Tetramand princess. It seems he has more luck attracting aliens than he does human girls, like his grampa (Julie even asks how many girls Ben has in his life during "Rules of Engagement", to which Ben replies he has no clue).
    • Ben is stunned to find out that Rook was one of these on his home world.
  • In Codename: Kids Next Door Nigel/Numbuh One is an in-training Chick Magnet, with Lizzie, Rachel/Numbuh 362 and his own tree house into him.

  • DCAU:
    • Batman in Batman: The Animated Series The amount of girls who show interest in him is astoundingly high than any other DCAU character to list not even a percent of it Diana, Barbara, Zatana, Selina, Tali, and even Lois Lane and Harley Quinn!. In Justice League, Batman also peaked the interest of Wonder Woman...despite being ten times his strengh and 2000 years older than him.
    • Clark Kent alias Superman in Superman: The Animated Series. He was irresistible in high school and Lana Lang even complained about his ability to attract every woman in the area.
    • The Flash in the final season of Justice League Unlimited. Once he stopped hitting on practically anything that moved, girls seemed to really start going for him. Resulting in him being awkwardly flustered by the attention of the superheroine Fire. He even accidentally seduced a supervillainess while in Lex Luthor's body.
  • DuckTales:
    • Scrooge got the attention of Glittering Goldie, Millionara Vanderbucks, Magica De Spell, Mrs. Crackshell, and Ma Beagle. Even if he is the richest duck in the world, that's still quite an accomplishment.
    • Launchpad was pretty popular with the ladies considering he attracted Feathers Galore, Sensen, and many other girls along the way (including some whose attentions he didn't want).
  • Mark Chang from The Fairly Oddparents in his human disguise. His saying that any affection from him would cause him extreme pain, not knowing he's serious the girls just sigh dreamily.
  • In Futurama episode "The Butterjunk Effect," Fry gets sprayed with pheromones from a male alien Butterfly and becomes irresistibly attractive to women who take the "performance enhancer" known as "nectar," since it causes them to emit female butterfly pheromones.

  • Corey Riffin from Grojband, as a result of being popular.

  • One episode of Kim Possible has Ron become one of these thanks to a hand full of hair gel and some stylish cloths.
  • The The Legend of Korra episode "A Leaf in the Wind" introduces young pro-bender Bolin, who has "crazy fangirls." As his team enters the arena, one can be heard in the audience screaming his name.
  • Looney Tunes: Despite being a Handsome Lech, Pepe Le Pew typically sent the female cats he fell in love with running for the hills, partly because of his skunk smell and partly because he just comes on too damn strong. On the other hand, when his odor is neutralized (on one occasion, the female cat's nose became clogged after an allergic reaction, which made her lose her sense of smell) or he gets black paint on his back which covers his white stripe (the female cats typically have white stripes painted on their backs, which makes them look like skunks), the female cats fall head-over-heels in love with him and the whole formula is gender flipped as they fall madly in love with Pepe and begin chasing him.
  • Bob from ReBoot. He attracts Dot, Mouse, and Hexadecimal along with other minor female characters.
  • While any crushes in The Magic School Bus are only hinted at, geeky guy Arnold seems to get Ship Teased with other female characters the most, including Phoebe, Wanda, Dorothy Ann, and a one-shot character named Tiffany.

  • Much to the surprise of everyone, Dizzy Devil from Tiny Toon Adventures had a knack for attracting beautiful women, even when he wasn't trying.
  • Total Drama series:

    • Justin, the resident Mr. Fanservice in Island and Action. And not limited to female.
    • Alejandro. To the point where he was able to manipulate virtually every female character in the season.
  • Caleb, the young Rebel Leader in W.I.T.C.H., spends at least one episode with a gaggle of girls swooning over him. His good looks are commented on by the main girls in the second episode, before they've even spoken with him, and he ends up dating one of them too.
  • Valhallen, Viking God of Rock from Dexter's Laboratory is one of these. Every time he unleashes the power of his "Mighty Axe" scores of fan girls suddenly appear from out of nowhere screaming excitedly. He is also shown partying with numerous Valkyrie warrior women whenever he visits Asgard.
  • The Sonic Boom incarnation of Tails manages to woo two girls in the span of two episodes, the first being the sweet Girl Next Door Zooey (with a bit of help from Eggman) and the second being the sassy and down-to-earth Perci. The last few seconds of the episode have Perci admiring Tails' workshop skills and flirting with him. Not bad for a kid.

    Real Life 
  • Nikola Tesla has accounts of women vying for his affection despite being a lifelong bachelor. However he was more into science rather than women.
  • Pierce Brosnan attracts the ladies even when he doesn't intend to.
    • In this interview, a journalist asks Brosnan which gender approaches him the most among his fans, and his firm response is, "Oh women, definitely." Moreover, he and his first wife told TV Guide in an article that was published on June 9, 1984 that being a sex symbol can be very unpleasant at times because of the constant stream of unwanted attention.
      Pierce Brosnan: [Hollywood] is a pretty fast town and the women are terrible. Some actresses do this whole number, proposition me, right in front of my wife, and sometimes I am just so naïve that I don't get it until maybe 10 minutes later. I cannot believe the gall of these people.
      Cassandra Harris: These women are horrible. They try to use me to become friendly with Pierce. Or else, they just cut me dead, and only want to speak to him. Sometimes I feel like bursting into tears.
    • Brosnan inadvertently turned his Mamma Mia! co-star Meryl Streep into one of his avid fangirls because she impulsively ripped his shirt off while they were filming a scene even though it was not part of the script! Even a consummate professional like Streep couldn't keep her hands off of Pierce's Carpet of Virility.
  • Benedict Cumberbatch. Check out this screaming audience at the Sherlock PBS Q&A (warning: DO NOT listen to the first 20 seconds with earphones). For extra points, the man has absolutely no idea why he has this effect on women. He doesn't find himself attractive at all!
  • It has been claimed that poet/artist/songwriter/Renaissance Man Shel Silverstein had to beat the ladies off with sticks. Not a perfect example, as he wasn't at all "innocent" about it.
  • Frank Sinatra. Looney Tunes featuring of him frequently had the members of his audience fainting, sighing "Oh Frankie!" in ecstasy, going into seizures, or screaming. They always chased after him in huge crowds once he was done performing. More or less the same things happened to Elvis Presley and The Beatles. Later reports indicate that a certain number of the screaming fans were paid to do so, but there's still something there.
  • Another example is Richard Sterban, he even shows it off near the end of this video, his voice helps too.
  • Doug Walker. Even at his second ever con, he had women telling him they want to take him home and keep him. He's grown to use both this and Even the Guys Want Him to his advantage, but the amount of marriage proposals he gets seems to make him uncomfortable.

Female

    Anime and Manga 
  • General: Pick a Reverse Harem anime protagonist. Any Reverse Harem anime protagonist.
  • Christa from Attack on Titan, along with Even the Girls Want Her. Her numerous admirers have called her a "Goddess" or expressed the desire to marry her, due to her kind nature.
  • Berserk:
  • Marika from Bokura no Hentai drew in a lot of female classmates when she ditched her glasses. The attention seems to have disappeared after she began living as a girl.
  • Sena Kashiwazaki from Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai is often followed around by a gaggle of guys tripping over themselves to do favors for her. She couldn't care less about them, though — she's only interested in the one guy who stood up to her.
  • Celty of Durarara!! has had people fall in love with her headless body (it is a very nice body), as well as with her severed head.
  • Yuria, Kenshiro's one true love from Fist of the North Star, is sought after by a significant portion of the cast for one reason or another; most memorably by Shin, but even big scary Raoh fell for her hard.
  • Futari wa Pretty Cure: Honoka is noted to get love letters from boys all the time, and poor Nagisa is chagrined that she gets them from the girls all the time.
  • Ghost Talkers Daydream: Misaki has at least three different guys crushing on her between: Kadotake, Mitsuru, who's been stalking her ever since she turned him down as a client, and Kobayashi, who's one of her office co-workers. Plus, she's one of the most frequently requested Doms at the Roppongi S&M Club, and a magazine company once asked her to offer a pair of her panties as the first place prize for one of their contests!
  • Girls Bravo: Kirei gets near equal attention from middle-aged men and women, despite still being a highschool student. One of the final episodes has her sarcastically lampshade the fact that she's (quote): "like catnip for lesbians".

  • Mari from Inside Mari is a School Idol who attracts many boys but has turned down every single one. Her being Ambiguously Gay might be the reason.
  • Natsuru from Kämpfer only starts attracting females after his gender-bending transformations; even the ones interested in his male form weren't interested before. Though more girls want the female Natsuru, the male version gets this reputation amplified when rumor goes around that he has a secret affair with the female Natsuru.
  • Like her brother, Natusumi Hinata of Sgt. Frog has quite a following. Only it seems to be of the same gender. From her swooning all girl fanclub at school, to Koyuki, she's a real draw for chicks. The only male that seems to have any interest in her, is Giroro.
  • Mahou Sensei Negima!: It was only a two-chapter interlude, but the whole Cinema Village incident proved that Sakurazaki Setsuna + Samurai Costume = SQUEE!!!!
  • Kyoko from Maison Ikkoku. Like Yusaku, she's a less exaggerated example of this trope due to the nature of the story.
  • Maken-ki!: Love Espada's sex appeal is virtually unrivalled in-series, to such an extent that she has both sexes practically drooling at her feet. Which is fine by her, since she has an insatiable libido, is openly bisexual, and is said to have slept with over 100 girls. The 70.5 omake chapter even has an unnamed extra fall madly in love with her at first sight and ends with her voluntarily becoming Espada's Sex Slave.
  • The title character of Miyuki-chan in Wonderland attracts the attention of everyone in the worlds she stumbles in, which are inhabited by women only.

    • Boa Hancock, and she has the fangirls to prove it. "Is there no end to her sex appeal?"
    • Alvida has all the men and women of Roguetown squeeing for her beauty, up the the point where the police can't attack her. But she only has eyes for Luffy.
  • Haruhi Fujioka from Ouran High School Host Club is probably one of the only heterosexual girls who's still a genuine Chick Magnet, given her... unique circumstances.
  • Momo from Peach Girl has about four guys after her at one time or another.
  • Ranma ½
    • Akane Tendo is wanted by Ranma, Ryoga, Kuno, the entire school, etc. It isn't until it's confirmed that Ranma is Akane's fiancée that the school gives up on trying to woo her.
    • Also, Ranma's female form. Those who don't know she is a he pursue her. Those who do openly ogle.
  • Apparently, being a Dude Magnet is almost a requirement if a girl want to be a part in the Yagami High School in School Rumble
    • Yakumo Tsukamoto receives a lot of invitations from her male classmates to be a member of their respectives clubs, but she reject them because they are only interested in her for her good looks.
    • Wherever they go together, the pool, the beach, or when they are jogging at the school, Eri, Mikoto and Akira can't help being the center of lust of all the guys around.
      • Eri's daily routine is receiving dates invitations from guys and refuse them immediately.
    • Members of the Yagami High School Faculty Itoko, Youko and Tae are quite popular among the male students.
    • During the secret meeting of the perverts, they analyze the info collected from Nara of Sagano Megumi, Yuki Sugumi, Otsuka Mai, Mihara Kouse, Tenma Tsukamoto and the teacher Itoko Osakabe. The members of the club agree that those girls are all hot in their own peculiarities, except for Tenma who wasn't reviewed.
      • The Unfavorite Tenma, one of the least popular girl in her class has Harima, Nara, Tennouji and even Karasuma in love of her. Only four guys… What a loser.
  • Shizuma from the Girls Love series Strawberry Panic!. Naturally, there are absolutely no men in sight, but that's just okay with her.
  • THE iDOLM@STER - More of a Fangirl Magnet, but otherwise fits Makoto to a T.
    • Miki is pretty skilled at attracting the guys without trying. This is actually part of what leads to her Brilliant, but Lazy attitude.
  • Mikan of To Love-Ru also seems to be a Dude Magnet, and is continually being asked out by the boys in her class. Unfortunately for the guys, she's a Bro-con in denial. It seems the Yuuki family is God's gift to the opposite sex.
  • Urusei Yatsura:
    • Lum. Many of the male characters love her and therefore are jealous of Ataru.
    • The School Nurse Sakura. All the boys at school find her attractive. Ataru seems to like her most of the other girls. Ten also developed romantic feelings towards her, but she rejected him as well because he was too young for her.
  • Wandering Son:
    • Few straight boys Chiba's age have not taken a liking to her at one time or another. She especially drew the attention of her classmates on her first day of high school.
    • Nitori attracts the attentions of several girls (and a few boys) over the course of the series. It's noticeable despite the realistic atmosphere of the series she has a borderline harem in the series— Saori, Riku, Mako, and her eventual girlfriend Anna all like her at varying points, while she has Ship Tease with her friend Takatsuki who eventually does fall for her.
  • Michaela in the Light Novel Wiegenlied Of Green of the Evillious Chronicles. She has five marriage proposals (though only one is on-screen) and even more admirers, attributed to her beautiful singing voice and beautiful hair.
  • Homura Hinooka from the Type-Moon Light Novel Fire Girl, who was hailed as the "cutest girl in Seiran High" and is immensely popular with boys not just in her school but outside as well. Her senpai, Mayo Misasagi, is one as well and was so lovely that the boys of her year made it a general rule to each other that not one of them is to step that line with her.
  • Hannah of Black Butler garners attraction from Aleister, the three Trancy siblings, Alois, and Finny.
  • Aoi from You're Under Arrest! frequently has men attracted to her. It works to her advantage as it helps her job as apart at the anti-chikan segment of the police.

    Comic Books 
  • Shana from Jem and the Holograms has mentioned that her sister Aja constantly gets asked out. Aja does get flirted with several times but she's taken.
  • Melody from Josie and the Pussycats is one of these. The first issue even had her getting a large portion of the boys at her school into the physical education program by letting them chase her around the track.
  • Marvel Star Wars: Zeltrons are drawn to Leia Organa just as they are to her brother, and for the same reasons - she's heroic, famous, and Force-Sensitive.
  • Jessica Drew's Spider-Woman, thanks to her power which has a side effect of attracting men.
  • Starfire. Case in point, when she visits the Gotham City Police Department in Gotham Central, not just every men stares at her slack-jawed but also a few women too.

  • Dejah Thoris from Warlord of Mars had many male villains attracted to her such as Tal Hajus, Sab Than, Thurid, Dargur Andalust, Salensus Oll and the list goes on... What make this notable is that many of these villains belong to highly xenophobic races that otherwise views her race as inferiors, but otherwise wouldn't mind having a Interspecies Romance with her.
  • Aunt May from Spider-Man. No, really. Despite her age, she dated numerous different men after Ben's death: Octo Octavius (Doctor Octopus), Nathan Lubensky, Willie Lumpkin, Jarvis ( that was a skrull) and JJJ dad that marry her.

     Fan Works 

    Films — Animated

    Literature

  • Raven of Vampire Kisses has three guys after her at one time or another, the guys being Trevor, Jagger, and Alexander.

  • In My Ántonia, we have a Scandinavian beauty Lena Lingard. The first time she appears, Lena tempted away Ole from his crazy wife Mary, though unintentionally. Later in the novel, Jim (the narrator), her neighbor and her landlord are all in love with Lena at the same time. Men have always been attracted to her, but Lena is mostly indifferent and passive about it. She's very unconventional for her time, as she doesn't want to get married and has lovers, and becomes a successful seamstress.
  • Margaret Hale from North and South, who turns down two marriage proposals during the course of the novel, one from her eventual husband, as well as drawing the attention of her father's friend Mr Bell.

    Live-Action TV 
  • Fred was a bit like this in Angel. It took her forever to notice that both Gunn and Wesley liked her, plus Amy Acker apparently got quite a lot of attention on set as well. Characters who have been attracted to or Ship Teased with Fred or Illyria are Angel, Angelus, Wesley, Gunn, Spike, Knox, Connor, and Willow.
  • Felicity Smoak in Arrow. Several male characters are attracted to her including the protagonist Oliver Queen, Barry Allen and Ray Palmer.
  • Annie in Being Human (UK). Tully and Gilbert from Season 1; the Love Triangle with Hugh and Saul in Season 2; and now Mitchell in Season 3.
  • The Big Bang Theory: Penny. Most of the male characters who appear on the show (main, recurring, or one-shot characters) are or were attracted to her, with Sheldon being the only notable exception.
  • Friends: Rachel and Phoebe both pick up numerous guys with ease.
  • How I Met Your Mother:
    • "The Window", Ted recalls his longtime crush Maggie whom he never got to date because, as he describes her, she is "catnip for men".
    • This puts off Robin, who considers herself the alpha female in this department. "Your friend may be one of those magnets that can hold up a picture of your kids on the fridge, but I'm one of those magnets that can pick up cars in a junkyard!"
    • Cindy is the Mother's room-mate who briefly dates Ted. She informs him that guys just keep falling in love with the Mother.
  • Carly from iCarly basically attracts Anything That Moves
  • In one episode of Seinfeld, Elaine becomes a Shiksa Goddess and has every Jewish man she meets fall in love with her, including a boy at a bar mitzvah, his father, their rabbi, and even Jerry.
  • Spencer Carlin from South of Nowhere has no problem attracting women without any effort
  • Samantha Carter from Stargate SG-1 is almost as much of an example as Daniel, with multiple love interests and explicit and implicit interest from dozens of men, including an Ancient and a Replicator.
  • Betty Suarez of Ugly Betty has several men in love with her, not because of her looks (though she's quite cute), but because of her charm and intelligence.
  • The Vampire Diaries: Oddly enough Caroline gets this much more than the main heroine Elena. In every season she seems to be involved in a different love triangle. Matt was her first boyfriend, then she starts dating Tyler in season 2 and 3, Klaus is in love with her in season 3 and 4, new main character Enzo also flirts with her, she and Stefan become an Official Couple in later seasons, Alaric falls in love with her in season 7. In the early episodes of season 1 she also dated Damon (though he was still evil and not seriously interested in Caroline) so she has been paired with all the male protagonists. She also has a boyfriend named Jesse in a few episodes.
  • Kris from Charlie's Angels.

    Video Games 
  • The Duchess in Embric of Wulfhammer's Castle has multiple possible love interests, is the subject of numerous crushes, and is pursued by more Abhorrent Admirers than she cares to remember.
  • Pamela from Mana Khemia Alchemists Of Alrevis. She's a very moe, very Cute Ghost Girl. The ghost part doesn't deter guys (even the principal!) from courting her.
  • Princess Peach from Super Mario Bros. is also a major Dude Magnet. Everything's Better with Princesses, indeed. TEC, Francis, Bowser, Wario, numerous Toads, Booster, Lock, Mario, and to an extent, Luigi are all crushing on her. But there's only one suitor this princess has got her eyes on, and that's her hero, Mario.
  • Mass Effect:
    • A female Shepard almost matches her male counterpart, who can have a relationship with Lt Kaiden Alenko, Dr Liara T'Soni, Jacob Taylor, Thane Krios, Garrus Vakarian, Kelly Chambers, Samantha Traynor, and Diana Allers. She has Ship Tease with Tali'Zorah Vas Neema, Samara, Mordin, James Vega, and Shiala, Zaeed Massani admits that he's 'always thought [she] was beautiful', possibly has a (very brief) encounter with Morinth, gets a breeding request from at least one (female) krogan, a geth clearly has a crush on her, and the Citadel DLC makes it possible for her to have a one-night stand with Javik.
    • Surprisingly, Tali gets almost as much attention from the guys as female Shepard. She's a potential love interest for a male Shepard (arguably the most popular one), one of only two recurring squadmates who can end up with a love interest who isn't Shepard (namely, Garrus, the other squadmate), and she draws positive attention from Joker, Kenneth, Kal'Reegar, Jack, Kelly, and even Javik in a way, in addition to the above Ship Tease with a female Shepard. Also, if Shepard romances Tali, Liara comments in the Shadow Broker DLC that she saw Tali as competition for Shepard's affections back on the first Normandy- notable because Liara is a member of a species whose Hat is being ridiculously attractive.
    • Liara too. In addition to a Shepard of either sex, she has Ship Tease with both Feron and Javik, Kaidan calls her "easy on the eyes", Grunt develops a crush on her, and Garrus starts giving her the eye after drinking a lot.
  • Asellus of SaGa Frontier is a rare video game example of this (still attracting girls, not guys), and there's a in-story reason for it to boot. She has the blood of the Charm Lord in her, which makes her half-mystic, but also gives her the Charm Lord's Innate abilities of seduction and attraction to females. If you see the Easter Egg, you'll understand more.
  • In Super Heroine Chronicle, the Infinite Stratos girls still have their harem hijinks, but because Ichika isn't present, they have to go for the next best thing. Players would think it would be Claude, but a cutscene reveals that the girls would swoon over Hibiki Tachibana. This makes Aria H. Kanzaki warn them not to kiss her, or else they might get pregnant.
  • Talesof Symphonia has Sheena Fujibayashi, who has a number of NPCS hitting on her and some heavy Ship Tease with both Lloyd and Zelos. She seems to have a thing for Lloyd, but he's oblivious and she's too Tsundere to come out and say it.
    • To a lesser extent than Sheena, there's also Raine Sage, who is implied to have been in a relationship prior to the game's events, gets her own fanclub in Asgard and usually gets a positive reaction from men, even if some find her a little scary.
  • The female protagonist of Persona 3 Portable. Junpei (the only male in SEES she cannot have a romantic relationship with) notes that a number of guys he talks to are interested in her. At least two of her Social Links develop feelings for her, although she can't have a relationship with them, another one calls her beautiful, and she is able to (optionally; the game developers have realized that it is possible for boys and girls to just be friends) romance Akihiko (himself a Chick Magnet), Ken, Ryoji, and Shinjiro who is implied to have fallen for her whether the player chooses to become lovers with him or not. Then there's Theo and Aigis...

    Visual Novels 
  • Osanai Shouko from Aoi Shiro attracts a lot of girls, up to having something dangerously close to Twin Threesome Fantasy sex. Being an extremely charming Sempai doesn't help, though it's more obvious when the story is related from other characters' point of view.
  • Even outside of their own routes, all six boys of Clock Zero are in love with the protagonist, Nadeshiko Kurou, who stands out as one of the youngest examples of this trope in otome game history note  Kaede and Rain also fall for her, and it's mentioned in extra materials that she received many confessions and love letters from a lot of boys when she entered middle school and high school after the VN's plot wrapped up.
  • The Shall We Date series features this for the heroine. The amount of guys that pursue her will vary from each route and each novel.

  • Princess Bubblegum in Adventure Time, who has main characters Finn and Ice King (and possibly Marceline) vying for her affections, along with all the wizards competing for her kiss in "Wizard Battle" and all the suitors in "The Suitor" (which reveals that at least one Candy Kingdom family have been trying to court her for generations). Lumpy Space Princess points this out in "Bad Timing" and is furious, because while LSP tries to be this PB succeeds without any apparent effort, and isn't interested in any of them.
  • From Animaniacs Hello Nurse and Minerva Mink. Hello Nurse has men lusting after her constantly, especially the Warner Brothers. Minerva, as revealed in the comics, has an extremely hard time doing ordinary things like grocery shopping and filing taxes, because every male of every species in the area is panting and hooting at her.
  • Despite supposedly being an unpopular nerd, Ginger from As Told by Ginger catches the eyes of no less than eight boys over the course of the series. That's more than the 'popular girls' like Miranda and Courtney.
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender: In "The Beach" episode, Ty Lee had 5 guys trying to get with her at the same time (seen at the end of this clip), whereas Princess Azula couldn't even land one.
  • Blackarachnia from Beast Wars has had Tarantulas, Quickstrike, Silverbolt, Cheetor and Waspinator trying to get with her.
  • Gadget from Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers. Chip and Dale were constantly competing for her affection, and many guest characters fell for her charms, too, not that she often noticed. It helps that she was the only regular female character.
  • Code Lyoko: Sissi is stated to be one, but it's really more of an Informed Ability. Yumi, on the other hand, definitely qualifies, having (in addition to her Belligerent Sexual Tension with Ulrich) William, Johnny and Theo Gautier expressing interest in her.
  • Codename: Kids Next Door has Kuki Sanban aka Numbuh 3 who has caught many boys' attention—such as Wally/Numbuh 4, Numbuh 30C, The Kid, Sandy before seeing her sister Mushi, and it's also implied that Numbuh 1 has a crush on her as well.
  • Quinn from Daria is dating a different guy almost every episode, although she mostly limits herself to rotating between the same three guys, who are utterly smitten with her.
  • Nazz from Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy. All the boys have a crush on her, except for Rolf and Jimmy.
  • Trixie from Fairly OddParents. She is considered the prettiest girl in the school by many boys, including Timmy.
  • Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends: Frankie Foster. Mac, Bloo, Prince Charming, two geeks, a pizza delivery guy, and many more have fallen in love with her.
  • The Legend of Korra:
    • Korra is an Amazonian Beauty, who has had both Bolin and his brother, Mako, being attracted to her. Rival pro-bender Tahno tried to pick her up with a cheap come-on, by offering to show her how a pro "bends." In Book Four, Prince Wu makes repeated passes at her, though she shoots him down every time. She also ends up being the Closet Key for Asami.
    • Asami is a tall, elegant, and just plain nice Honest Corporate Executive, capable in and out of combat. Mako falls for her at first sight and they end up dating, Meelo refers to her as beautiful, and Prince Wu is as eager to hit on her as he is Korra. She's also the Closet Key for Korra.
  • Producing Parker has Parker Kovak. Men, women, infants, robots, computers, and more have all had at least some romatic interest in her.
  • The Simpsons: Mrs. Krabappel appears to be desired by many men (and in one case even women, when Patty Bouvier once had a sexual fantasy with Edna), as seen in Sideshow Bob's outrage (in "Brother from Another Series") wherein his romantic date with her is ruined by a spying Bart: "You only get one chance with Edna Krabappel!"
  • Teen Titans: Starfire. Robin wasn't the only one who had noticed her good looks.
  • Teen Titans Go!: Strangely, as Starfire's status as this had lessened, Raven is the one who gets the treatment. Beast Boy, Aqulad, a group of men, and even Robin had showed interest in her. Then there was her whole stint as Lady Legasis...
  • Gwen from Total Drama has three guys (Duncan, Trent and Cody) who like her, and a couple more who have commented that she's good looking.

    Real Life 
  • Marilyn Monroe, with a reputation as the most beautiful woman alive who had hordes of men grovelling at her feet. Most of it was part of her celebrity persona, but a lot of it was genuine.

Waldorf: So Statler, do you really think these guys are likely to attract chicks?
Statler: I think they're more likely to attract eggs!
Both: Do-ho-ho-ho-hoh!
