"D-Do I really inspire that sort of frothing desire in the female masses?"A Chick Magnet is a guy who draws girls to him like bears to honey. 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. As the description implies, this trope is almost always applied to male characters, due to various Double Standards, along with not a small amount of wish fulfillment. When the Gender Inversion does happen they are usually referred to as a Dude Magnet, this trope's alternate title. 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!.

Anime and Manga
- Pick a Harem anime protagonist. Any Harem anime protagonist.
- 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.
- 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. Not at all obvious in the Golden Age, which has as a plot point his slowly building relationship with Casca. Rather, it happens to him afterwards, where he seems to have more of a knack for having girls several generations his junior fall for him. Farnese (who is a generation younger than him) falls in love with and practically worships the ground he walks on. And then there's Schierke, who is more than a generation younger than him, and has a huge crush on him. It's implied that Jill (who looks to be around the same age as Schierke), an abused village girl, developed a huge crush on him as well (to the point where she repeatedly kept begging for him to allow her to permanently follow and come with him). And along with (much) younger girls, he also seems to be a demon magnet, and not just because of the Brand of Sacrifice he bears. There's Slan, the only female member of the Godhand, who is very attracted to him in an evil and sadistic way. Rosine, a fairy-like Apostle, flirts with and mentions how attractive he is (despite her almost Single-Target Sexuality obsession with Jill). And getting into Even the Guys Want Him, Griffith, who would become the latest member of the Godhand, had a Yandere obsession with him.
- 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 is. 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.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
- 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.
- Makoto Shinozaki, Akina's otaku brother in Don't Become an Otaku, Shinozaki-san!, 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.
- Son Gohan from Dragon Ball Z briefly shows himself to be quite a hit with the ladies when he enters High School.
- 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.
- 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.
- In Gekkan Shoujo 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).
- 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."
- Gundam SEED has Kira Yamato. His best friend Athrun Zala becomes a more perfect example in the sequel.
- Issei Hyodo in High School DXD 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: At only 17, Takashi Kumoro has been the childhood crush of Saya Takagi, and is the center of an ongoing Love Triangle between his crush, Rei Miyamoto, and the impossibly hot Saeko Busujima. 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.
- 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 Keroro Gunso 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...
- 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 (chapter 125).
- If you thought Negi was dense, you clearly haven't seen 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Sasuke Uchiha from Naruto 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.
- 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.
- One Piece: Luffy, especially with the Kuja Amazons being all over him (though admittedly he's the only man they've ever seen). 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.
- 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's Ash Ketchum. Many girls (human and Pokémon) have developed feelings for Ash and he's too clueless to notice any of them.
- Ranma Saotome of Ranma ˝ 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.
- 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 Tantei Gakuen 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 Masaki from Tenchi Muyo! is the classic Unlucky Everydude version.
- 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. Not to mention his young admirer Kurumi Ijuin from the anime.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
- Ryuuji from Toradora!, 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Julio, and especially Saito of Zero no Tsukaima. 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.
- Paptimus Scirocco of Zeta Gundam fame. It's implied he uses Psychic Powers to subtley manipulate women. A particularily 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.
- Archie Andrews from the Archie Comics, for some reason. 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.
- 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.
- Daredevil... the Murdock mojo runs strong enough to leave even Spider-Man envious.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 fanon consensus that Even the Guys Want Him has yet to be discussed in canon.)
- 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. His animated version hooked up with Lois Lane. Even the Joker had to express his admiration for that one.
- 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.
- Spider-Man as well. 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!
- Clark Kent/Superman. He's attracted: Lana Lang, Lori Lemaris (a mermaid!), Lois Lane, Cat Grant, Wonder Woman, 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).
- 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.
- 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...
- 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!"
- 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.
- Chicks dig the fuzzy 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- The return of Victor Tugelbend to Ankh-Morpork in AA 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 Genre Savvy enough to realise the unfortunate implications upon him, and actively tries to avoid them. Given this is the Reactsverse, his attempts fail horribly.
Films — Animation
- The villain in Beauty Andthe 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.
- 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.
- Psycho: Norman Bates as a teenager was apparently this, able to attract two girls, one of them a grown woman. In 1960, he was able to charm Marion. Of course, this only makes the fact he is a crazed Serial Killer even more frightening.
- 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.
- 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.
- James Hunt in biopic Rush2013, who allegedly slept with over 5,000 women in his lifetime.
- In 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 Darkholme (who has a crush on him) and Moira MacTaggert (there is a deleted scene where she and Charles are making out after drinking too much champagne).
- Nawat Crow in Tamora Pierce's Song of the Lioness. His innocence is compounded by the fact that...well, 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, not to mention 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:
- Luke Skywalker, as you can see here. Akanah and Callista having sex with Luke is canon, and it's heavily implied Teneniel raped him. Jem, the jury's still out on - they fell in love, but she was Stuffed into the Fridge almost immediately. Mon Mothma was confident in Luke's relationship with Gaeriel that she tapped him to open negotiations with Bakura; she wasn't known for making political mistakes. He finally gets married (to Mara Jade) after something like 15+ years, but it doesn't turn off his charm. Even the Guys Want Him, apparently, given Isolder and Brakiss.
- Zeltrons welcome everyone with great enthusiasm - their culture's rules are love everyone, have fun, and if you have to kill, do it quickly and cleanly. But they are incredibly attracted to Luke Skywalker. They're a species of empaths, and the combination of his pureheartedness, fame, and the sheer, intoxicatingly sensual power of the Force in him makes them flock◊ and swarm◊ to him, males and females both. They welcome nearly anyone with great enthusiasm, sure, but especially him.
- Sir Berit and Sir Bevier, from David Eddings' Tamuli trilogy. Subverted 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 "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).
- 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).
- 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 definitely qualifies. Word of God says that the only women who aren't attractive to him are either related to him or are lesbians.
- 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.
- 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:
Annie: ...How, exactly, does a blind man navigate a huge music festival in a foreign city?
- Auggie is boarding a plane to Istanbul to attend a jazz festival and talking to Annie on the phone.
Auggie: I know Istanbul better than some Turks, and for anything I don't know, I can always make a friend.
Annie: ...Made a friend already, huh.
- 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;
- 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.
- 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..."
- 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?
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- In Big Bang Bar, the animated display for "Get Lucky" shows a four-eyed alien who's suddenly peppered with kisses by various females.
- The Jade Regent RPG Actual Play podcasts from RPGMP3 feature a weapon called Oathtaker. During their travels, the adventurers stumbled across this magical tetsubo (a huge Oriental bludgeoning weapon). Apart from its obvious uses, it can also force people under a Blood Geas. It's currently wielded by Harold Shinken, who discovered that the Viking women of the Linnorm Kingdoms were very impressed by the weapon's... craftsmanship.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- In Suikoden IV, the hero also 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Talking to a certain chicken as a wolf in Ordon reveals that even animals have a thing for Link. There is truly no escape.
- 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 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Magick Chicks: Ash is roguishly handsome and is such a charmer, that he's managed to hook up with Faith, who's a known lesbian and the hottest girl at Artemis Acadmey. And it's known that they're banging each other. Plus, Doompantied Chloe, Cess, and Laura (note: a trio of succubi), were drawn to his virility and made out with him for over an hour.
- El Chupacabre (better known as "Chuy") in Girly, who initially is under the mistaken impression that he is using his powers for good. Unfortunately, he's also a sort of unintentional Kavorka Man, and his Heel-Face Turn is complicated by the fact that, no matter what he does, any woman he gets near develops a sudden and overpowering attraction to him. And let's not even start on what happened when everyone got shuffled into different bodies and his girlfriend got his, mojo and all.
- In Least I Could Do, Rayne Summers has this reputation, but it frequently falls into Informed Ability.
- From Funny Farm, Flink's ability to turn women (and gay men) on is inexplicable, given that he's an anthropomorphic pig. Furthermore, he's not doing anything other than standing there and talking (or just standing), and most of the time doesn't think anything of the fact that they're hanging off him. He's The Fool, but he also might be a truly asexual Chick Magnet.
- Tip in Skin Horse even when he's transformed into a different species So much so that he even has this effect on lesbian women.
- Gary of Ménage ŕ 3 has countless woman wanting to kiss him, date him, or get an orgasm from him.
- In El Goonish Shive Elliot has attracted the affections Sarah, Nanase (albeit non-sexually, being at the time a closeted lesbian), Susan, Diane, and an Unnamed girl.
- Eldwin from The Bug Pond. His friend Flash takes him to party in hopes he would look more eligible to the ladies in comparison. However, Eldwin manages to garner all the attention from the women at the party, much to Flash's chagrin.
- In Webcomic/Homestuck, Jake English is apparently this. All three of his friends, Jane, Roxy, and Dirk, are attracted to him, and later, when all 4 of the post-scratch kids go god tier, Jake's Page of Hope outfit has no pants and he is in yellow underwear, and Jane can't help but stare at it.
- Wren from We Are Our Avatars counts as one. As Falken puts it:
"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!
- 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. Fortunately, after three seasons of being unlucky in love, he meets Flame Princess, who does feel the same way.
- 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.
- Droopy, in Tom and Jerry Kids and Droopy Master Detective; even his son describes him as a "Babe Magnet." In fact he always manages to conquer the beautiful Miss Vavoom on her various incarnations, even at first sight, getting usually kisses that give him explosive reactions.
- Hinted with Timmy Turner from The Fairly Oddparents.
- Mark Chang 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. It's so strong even Amy—who is technically married to Kif—tried to have sex with him.
- Rex from Generator Rex has so far attracted the attention of at least four girls that were significant to the plot in one way or another.
- Corey Riffin from Grojband, as a result of being popular.
- 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 at least one superheroine. He even accidentally seduced a supervillainess while in someone else's body.
- One episode of Kim Possible has Ron become one of these thanks to a hand full of hair gel and some stylish cloths.
- 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.
- Lance from Sym-Bionic Titan.
- 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.
- In one episode of The Replacements, it is revealed that Sheldon instantly (and involuntarily) turns into a middle-school version of one of these whenever his Nerd Glasses are removed.
- The Simpsons: As an adult, Homer Simpson has attracted a shocking number of beautiful women. It's become a plot point on several episodes, ones that focus on Homer and Marge's marriage.
- Bart himself as had a few girlfriends, one of them fifteen years old.
- Kirk Van Houten is usually portrayed as an unattractive deadbeat, but when he was unfairly thrown in jail for kidnapping Bart, it makes him an idol to many ladies.
- Apu becomes one after making a fortune at a bachelor auction.
- 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.
- Trent, Justin and Alejandro from the Total Drama series.
- 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.
- 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.
- Another example is Richard Sterban, he even shows it off near the end of this video, his voice helps too.
- 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!
- 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.
Anime and Manga
- 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.
- Much like her lover, Guts, Casca from Berserk seems to have no trouble with attracting the opposite sex. The more "docile" cases included Guts himself, who is still crazy in love with her even after she lost her mind as a result of the traumatic eclipse and she can't love him back, Judeau, who was quietly in love with Casca but forfeited his pursuit when he saw that Guts and Casca were meant to be, and then later came Griffith, who began to develop the same disturbing attraction to her as he did to Guts when he realized that they were in love and it didn't end well. Beyond those three, Casca has earned the admiration of other men - though unfortunately for her, they have all of the wrong intentions.
- 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!
- Kirie of Girls Bravo is both a Dude Magnet and a Chick Magnet.
- Mikado Akira of Hayate X Blade has a fan club with 80 members. At an all-girls school.
- Hayate the Combat Butler: Hinagiku. Apparently everyone in the school likes her. Lampshaded several times, and once by the title of a chapter, "Are you a magnet or something?"
- 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 Keroro Gunso 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.
- 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.
- One Piece:
- 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 ˝
- 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: The whole of Tomobiki High School knows that Ryuunousuke's rather delusional father insists on making a man out of her, and she still gets more love letters than any guy on campus.
- Chiba from Wandering Son. Few straight boys her age in the series have not taken a liking to her at one time or another.
- 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.
- 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.
- Supergirl has to deal with guys literally falling off buildings so she'll rescue them — and hopefully give them her phone number afterward.
- Jean Grey is the object of affection for many male X-Men members, including Professor X himself for a brief period in the old days.
Films — Animated
- The Book of Life:
- Maria has both Manolo and Joaquin falling for her. And when she returns to San Angel, all the men go GAGA over her. Xibalba was even impressed.
- Gutierrez has confirmed that it was Xibalba who fell for La Muerte first, the Candlemaker had a thing for her once, and her old flame El Chamuco (who is now married to her sister, La Noche), still has feelings for her.
Films — Live-Action
- In Chicago, Roxie Hart imagines herself as a Dude Magnet (and a Marriage Proposal Magnet) in her "I'll be a star and boy will it be swell" song.
- The entire plot of There's Something About Mary is based on the title character being one of these, although unfortunately only a particular type of man seemed to be attracted to her.
- Bella Swan of Twilight fame. Apparently even her science teacher fancies her.
- Raven of Vampire Kisses has three guys after her at one time or another, the guys being Trevor, Jagger, and Alexander.
- Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy definitely attracts men in spades, for reasons good or bad. Including Jesse Zeklos, Mason Ashford, Dimitri Belikov, Adrian Ivashkov, Rolan Kislyak, Joshua Dawes, and a couple of minor admirers.
- 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.
- 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. Tully and Gilbert from Season 1; the Love Triangle with Hugh and Saul in Season 2; and now Mitchell in Season 3.
- 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.
- 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, 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 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, and even Javik in a way.
- 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.
- 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...
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Lupa fends off the advances of Todd in the Shadows and Stickman from "What the Fuck Is Wrong with You?," in addition to Angry Joe calling her hot, Sage and the Nostalgia Critic offering to kiss her, Linkara implying that he wants to make out with her, 90s Kid outright saying he wants to make out with her and Diamanda Hagan being pregnant with Lupa's baby. The Linkara bit has Lupa ask "Why is everyone in love with me?" Parodied in a Previously On segment on "Atop the Fourth Wall" (in fact, the same one with Diamanda) where Welshy laments that "she got another one. Film Brain is now in love with Obscurus Lupa."
- Ever After High has Apple White, daughter of Snow White. She occasionally has several boys swooning over her.
- DiDi of Ménage ŕ 3 has nigh-supernatural sex appeal (and not just because of her astonishing figure), to and beyond the point of being Blessed with Suck; as a result, she not only has so many boyfriends she can't keep count, she frequently distracts every male in line of sight.
- Eerie Cuties: Layla is such a hottie that she's both a dude magnet and a chick magnet. She's been the object of affection for the two most sought after guys at her school — Kade Whiteclaw and Diodore Renoir— and the mere thought that she might be a lesbian was enough to have all the guys in tears that they'd no longer have a chance to get with her. At the same time, Brooke secretly nurses unrequited feelings for her, despite not liking her. A group of girls took Layla to the prom, believing the rumor that she was a lesbian, and Faith Abbot paused long enough from attempting to stake her, to admire Layla's beauty.
- Magick Chicks: As far as the girls at Artemis Academy are concerned, Faith Abbot is the hottest girl on campus and she has no shortage of willing partners. Even Tiffany finds herself having conflicted feelings towards her, both in terms of the moral divide that exist between them and because she's straight. Yet, she can no longer deny the attraction, or the fact she may be wiling to make an exception for Faith.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Producing Parker has Parker Kovak. Men, women, infants, robots, computers, and more have all had at least some romatic interest in her.
- Caitlin Cooke from 6teen had too many boyfriends to count. Many of them became whole episode plots. She mentioned that there were even a few women who asked her out.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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...
- Marilyn Monroe, with a reputation as the most beautiful women 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.
