In The Secret Devil-chan manga. When Kurosaki Sou’s male class mates find out Devil-chan is actually a boy they just don’t care. To quote the manga: Cuteness is all that matters. A boy? So what if he's a boy?
Masa from Seto no Hanayome (The first guy to "want" him was The Protagonist, Nagasumi himself, after he received a CPR from him, which he mistook as a kiss (his first))
Gensoumaden Saiyuki and all its related movies, series and manga. All four main characters, especially Sanzo, get quite a bit of male attention, notably from their foes. Goku had Homura get up close and personal, Hakkai had Chin Yisou (plus Li Touten's come-ons to Tenpou), Gojyo had Kami-sama...and poor Sanzo had Hazel, Go Dougan in Requiem, Rikudo, the bandits from Burial, and that one guy from the Reload anime with the puppets. Not to mention the way that Goku looks at Sanzo and Gojyo teases him about being pretty. Sanzo...does not always deal with this gracefully. One of his less rage-y reactions from early in Gensomaden:
Guy (Leers and holds Sanzo's face):You're so pretty that you look like a woman.
GS (Calmly nonplussed):I'm a man though.
Guy: (Leers even more):I don't mind.
GS (Remains placid):Fool.
Zero No Tsukaima: Saito. Even though he and Louise are in love with each other, that doesn't stop most of the women in the show from expressing interest in Saito at one time or another, most notably Siesta and Kirche. In addition to that, after his victory over Guiche, Saito becomes popular with the commoners and some nobles in the school, both male and female. Marto, the school's head cook is especially in awe of Saito for his victory and gives him free food because of it. He also affectionately calls him "Our Sword", embraces and even attempts to kiss him on multiple occasions. Later, in the last episode of season 2, Saito gives a sleeping Louise to Julio, who promises to watch her while Saito's out doing battle. Saito tells him he's fighting for Louise's sake because he loves her, and Julio is so touched by this that he says to him with much adoration: "I wish to tell you I love you too." He even tells Saito during a fight with him that he wants to kiss him as well as Louise. Oh, and then there's Scarron, a Macho Camp inn manager, who has also taken a liking to Saito, saying that he is "just his type", attempts to plant a Forceful Kiss on him, and glomps him while releasing plenty of heart marks.
Gankutsuou: The Count. Albert clearly has a huge crush on him. And then there's Albert himself. His best friend Franz is secretly and desperately in love with him. And Peppo, a male crossdresser seems to have a strong affection for Albert and enjoys teasing him whenever he can. He later falls deeply in love with Albert. He also ends up engaged to Eugenie who ends up falling in love with him too.
There's the attraction that Hanagata has for Otaru in Saber Marionette J though it's not shared. As well as Otaru having a Unwanted Harem of about three marionettes all who are head over heels in love with him.
Jack Atlas of Yu-Gi-Oh 5Ds, idolized by men and women everywhere to the point where he has his own action figure within the show itself... and it's shown in the loving possession of a young male cast member.
The hero Yusei himself. He was blatantly hit on by Yanagi, who at one point tried to give him a Smooch of Victory after Yusei won a duel. His cellmate Aoyama has also flirted with him. In the dub of episode 31, Crow suggests that if he and Yusei can't win this duel, they should book a room together in prison.
Also Johan. Judai himself is implied to have feelings for him. (Yubel called him out on it. Twice.)
Mamoru Chiba of Sailor Moon was surprisingly nice when Fisheye came on to him. Also, the plot of the Sailor Moon R Movie centered around a male alien's (Fiore) obsession with him.
Subverted in the episode of Princess Tutu, "Crime and Punishment". Femio thinks that everyone including pretty-boy Mytho is absolutely in love with him, but it's actually all in his head — Mytho was miming the "I Love You" mime as a way to fight against the Raven's blood tainting his heart.
Kyohei from The Wallflower, who has a history of losing jobs due to his bosses — both male and female — sexually harassing him, and his headmaster at his school also came on to him once.
Guts as well. He's a major Chick Magnet and Griffith himself had a Yandere obsession toward Guts before the Eclipse.
From JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Dio Brando. His insane level of charisma gets a lot of people to serve him, female and male alike. Joseph even mentions that this makes him very dangerous, as his minions are extremely loyal.
Germany's most evil bishonen, Johan Liebert, has been described as beautiful by more often by men than he has by women.
And then there's Roberto's hugeBodyguard Crush on him. Seriously, whenever the man talks about Johan you'd think they were lovers or something...
Ladios Sopp from The Five Star Stories manga the anime movie it spawned has one of these moments in just about every volume in which he appears. To be fair, he is a god in disguise. His true form, Amaterasu the God Emperor of Light sometimes gets this as well, but most people are too intimidated or outright terrified by him to say anything about it.
Yuki Sohma from Fruits Basket is popular among both males and females at his school. His older brother Ayame was also very popular with both genders in his school times. Not to mention that Haru once told Tohru that Yuki was his "first love." Also, Takei Makoto the Student Council president at Yuki and Tohru's school is shown to have a crush on Yuki, blushing whenever he is around and imagining him wearing a dress with a smile on his face.
Vampire Hunter D's leading character, D, is often called on his otherworldly beauty, with both genders commonly propositioning him. D's grandfather also has these effects on people.
In the original light novel series, D almost gets raped 3 times by men & Leon prevents two of them, one of those rape attempt included a kiss & getting to second base, and D gets 5 marriage requests from men.
One-shot character and Charm Person Kotaro Ijuuin in Rosario + Vampire Capu2. Not only did his voice captivate nearly every girl in earshot, when Ginei attempted to stand up to him, even he was smitten.
From the opening credits, it's clear that Ichiro from Nerima Daikon Brothers is coveted by women, men and animals alike. Naturally, he works at a host club.
Ikki from Air Gear. Just ask Akito. Or Aeon Clock who once confessed his love for him by saying that his life is Ikki's "feathers" and that "my heart is still inside those wings engraved with the same time". Or possibly even Kazu.
Yukito from Cardcaptor Sakura had Sakura, Syaoran, and Sakura's brother Touya vying for his affection. Also the wacky Genki Girl Akizuki, seemingly. She really wants his power, and doesn't particularly care that if she takes it, he'll die. Of course, Everyone Is Bi in the CCS universe anyway.
Train from Black Cat had three girls who fell for him, and, ironically, the man who fell for him is the one whose feelings for him are the deepest and most obsessive.
Akio from Revolutionary Girl Utena, and for very different reasons, Touga. It's no real surprise when they start doing each other after Akio's first couple of appearances.
Claus Valca from Last Exile, especially notable in the episode "Fairy Chess", receives varying forms of potentially romantic attention from Lavie, Tatiana, Sophia, Dio, and Gale.
Masao Kirishima from Mars quickly attracts the attention of male and female students alike.
Sousuke Sagara from Full Metal Panic. Sousuke managed to attract unwanted attention from Gauron ever since he was twelve. Seriously — when Gauron first saw him, he literally did a double take, parked his jeep, and tried to pick him up. Also, in episode 24 while Gauron's trying to blow himself and Sousuke up (possibly in his screwed-up mind, as a lover's double suicide), he cries out, "I LOVE YOU, KASHIM!" and in Japanese, Gauron actually says "Aishiteru ze", which literally means "I love you" with all the romantic and sexual connotations attached to it. He also keeps calling Sousuke "Honey". Zaied also quite possibly felt a bit more than friendship towards Sousuke. Especially considering the frequent, really Gaussian Girl-esque memories he had of playing half-naked in the water with young Sousuke. Or how, in the short amount of time he was shown, he's always constantly thinking about Sousuke and whispering his name. Not to mention that, although Sousuke doesn't hesitate to kill him, he ends up unable to bring himself to shoot Sousuke when he has the chance. And Zaied wasn't the only guerilla that worked with Sousuke that probably wanted him — in the novels, it's made clear that Sousuke was aware that the other guerrillas he worked with treated him unusually nice, and many times it seemed likely that they would "attack him in his sleep" just because he was so darn pretty.
In the novels, Lemon seems to be Bi the Way towards Sousuke. Sure, he has a crush on Nami but there are the numerous times he's shown to have a strong attraction to Sousuke, despite Sousuke not even doing much besides being good looking and simply being there. When he first saw Sousuke, he thinks to himself that Sousuke is verygood looking and "charming", despite Sousuke being completely emotionless (read: "eye candy"). Later, after Sousuke wins a tournament that helped win back Lemon's money, Lemon hugged Sousuke with "more passion than a french kiss would warrant", making Sousuke slightly uncomfortable. And later still, Lemon gets drunk, and subsequently invades Sousuke's personal space by hugging and groping him while blushing - which irritates Sousuke to no end.
In episode 11 from Fumoffu, a male trio from the Music Club challenges him to a bet — if he can pick up a girl, they'll pay for his meals, but if he can't, he has to, swim in a lake, naked, while they watch. He loses the bet (due to acting overly scary and violent). The other school girls watching are shown to be really excited to see his body.
And then in the manga there's a substitute swim teacher who takes an immediate interest in Sousuke and his abilities — an interest which apparently involves blushing, drooling, and having thoughts which are WAY too suggestive to not be taken as Hot for Student. And he is shown to be very obviously jealous and shocked when he interprets Kaname's "I work well with Sousuke because we have a bond" as being that they've done it.
Allen Walker inspires such a reaction, along with being a Chick Magnet. Rohfa is infatuated with him, Road claims to love him, and there are suggestions in the second novel that Lenalee may have a secret crush on him. Another interpretation is that For may have a crush too. And then he's shown to be able to manipulate Komurin — a robot — by turning up his charm (complete with Bishie Sparkle) which makes Komurin fall for him. And possibly Lavi if his Ho Yay towards Allen is any indication.
Not to mention Road telling Lavi that Tyki likes Allen as she does (this being after it was established that she likes Allen enough to kiss him).
There's also Jeryy, the Camp Gay cafeteria manager in the Black Order, who flirts with Allen and calls him "cute".
Johnny appears to be obsessed with Allen too.
Kanda too. He's had guys hit on him before and Lavi is quite affectionate towards him, insists on calling him by his first name, and acts like a spurned lover whenever Kanda yells at him.
And Tyki. Cyril clearly likes the ladies but he is also obsessed with Tyki and even flirts with him a couple of times. He once said that Tyki's beauty arouses him, with Tyki replying "You're giving me goosebumps."
Kimihiro Watanuki from Xxx HO Li C. The Love Triangle he thought he was in? Well... he is interested in Himawari Kunogi and she kinda likes him back, but it turns out his "love rival" Shizuka Doumeki isn't interested in Himawari like he believed, but in Watanukihimself. LOLCLAMP.
Oh, and you know Zashiki Warashi, that cute girl that's completely shy and has a huge crush on Watanuki? In all likelihood, "she" is a "he" or an "it", according to a CLAMP interview where they say that her being female is not necessarily the case. Coupled with the fact that Zashiki Warashi spirits are normally described as being young boys and rarely being girls, along with how Ame-warashi usually says "this child" when referring to Zashiki Warashi instead of actually using a gender...
Both played straight and played with in the case of Hijikata. He's portrayed, as in history, as extremely popular with the ladies, and even one major (male) villain in the manga was clearly attracted to him; however, in one conversation between Suzu and Tetsunosuke, when they are lampshading the similarities between their respective masters, Suzu goes into fanboy mode over Yoshida's attractiveness and sexual prowess, complete with an imagined Yoshida flaunting his sex appeal. Tetsunosuke, with a similar mental image of Hijikata, just seems disturbed by the thought.
And Tetsunosuke himself qualifies as Suzu has a considerable amount of Foe Yay towards him, Heisuke finds him attractive and has flirted with him, Susumu blushed around him and is hinted to really like him, and he has a love interest in Saya.
And Suzu too. The old merchant Yamatoya made him his sex slave and his favorite "pet".
In Mirai Nikki the male lead, and cute little boy Yukiteru is constantly pursued by the absolutelypsychotic Yuno. Apparently he has also elicited similar feelings of the Ho Yay variety in Akise Aru. In the spin off, Akise goes as far to say that he's not gay, just Yukki-sexual.
Handsome Lech Hachibei Maeda in Ai Kora, has a few girls in his harem that are either in love with him or grow to love him later on. Also, Haiji fell in love with him because Maeda has a "pure heart".
Outlaw Star has Gene who initially has a thing going with his partner Hilda, gains the affections of the lovely Melfina, has Ship Tease moments with Suzuka, as well as Fred Luo having a yaoi crush on him.
Yami No Matsuei: Everybody wants Tsuzuki... it's not just Muraki. Let's see, there's Hisoka, Muraki (the most blatant one), Hijiri, the Count or Hakushaku (just as blatant as Muraki), Tatsumi, Watari (a one time Stupid Sexy Flanders case), even his Shikigami... Yup, everyone's gay for Tsuzuki.
An episode of the second Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei anime series shows even the boys in Nozomu Itoshiki's class would jump at the chance of a romantic relationship with him. Much to his despair, of course.
Tamahome. Canonically, Nakago has a one-sided obsession with him, Yui is in love with him to a Yandere-like degree, and he and Miaka are very much in love with each other. Also, Nuriko loved to tease him and once kissed him. Not to mention Vitriolic Best Friend with Ho Yay hints to Tasuki.
Oh, *please*. Hotohori! He's got Nuriko *and* Lady Houki crazy for him, and not to mention one of the Mt. Reikaku bandits was still infatuated with Hotohori after the Gender Reveal that took in the arc.
Sebastian Michaelis. Not only do Ciel's aunt and maid want him, so does a male shinigami. Yaoi Fangirls claim Ciel wants him too. Hell, in the anime, Sebastian takes this to a whole new extent: Even the DOG that sometimes takes on a human male form and an angel want him. Also, in chapter 39, Ciel hosts a party with a lot of rich and powerful people present. One guest is a writer named Arthur Conan Doyle. While the rest of the guests mingle and drink wine, Arthur goes and sits by himself, feeling left out. Sebastian comes up to him and offers him a drink. When Arthur looks up to thank him for the drink he is left speechless, blushes, and thinks "Wow....What beauty and ambiance he has. He could appear in a book by Oscar Wilde". And as Sebastian walks off, Arthur sees sparkles appear around him and stares after him in shock while blushing and thinking "I see, when you become top class, your servants are also top class..." Sebastian just has a natural seductive air about him and tends to attract girls and cause a lot of Ho Yay.
Ciel has this issue a lot. He attracts perverted cultists. And stalkers (like Baron Kevlin). And demons who want his soul (like Sebastian and Claude). And possibly Alois when he tells Ciel that he wants him and that he'll kill all his loved ones unless he agrees to become his. And he's even been flirted with by Aleister Chamber and Lau. And Undertaker has considerable Ho Yay towards him as well like in chapter 64 when he expresses concern over how Sebastian seems to make Ciel miserable and states that he'll murder Sebastian so that Ciel can be happy again. He tends to be kidnapped and harassesed because of his good looks.
Maurice Cole in the school arc of the manga is so handsome that he has plenty of fanboys.
Lelouch Lamperouge. Milly, Shirley, Kallen and Kaguya are head-over-heels in love with him. (As well as 108 other girls. And maybe C.C). And let's not even get into where Nunnally fits here...Then there's the love and psychotic devotion that Rolo has for him and very possibly Suzaku...
In regards to Rolo his voice actor has absolutely no doubt that Rolo is in love with Lelouch, as he explicitly mentions in more than one of his interviews about the character.
In one picture drama Suzaku tells a cross-dressing Lelouch that he "looks beautiful", eats a piece of rice off of his face in one audio drama and ends up kissing him in another audio drama. And in the Turn 9.34 picture drama when C.C., Kallen, and Lelouch dress up as belly dancers to sneak into the Chinese Federation. C.C. and Kallen introduce Lelouch as their "beautiful older sister" and the men ogle him. Of course, Lelouch has a masculine voice, so when he speaks, they realize that he's a guy. However, one of the men says he doesn't mind because he thinks Lelouch is "beautiful".
Ritsuka. Soubi, Yuiko (one of Ritsuka's female classmates), and his older brother Seimei are all in love with him. It's also pretty Squicky because Seimei's love for Ritsuka falls very deeply into incest territory. It's also implied that his (much older) psychologist has a crush on him as she takes him out on a "date" in an early volume.
France invokes the trope several times by groping Austria and commenting on how attractive he finds him (and possibly Italy), but also by trying to do something to England when England was bedridden. Not to mention him commenting on how cute he finds China. Or commenting on how cute he finds Romano and that he wants him. Or groping and kissing Spain.
America, in turn, has England very likely after him (even if he denies it), and two or three sketches have him swooned at by many girls.
Russia's relationship with Lithuania, who is the only one who could make him happy. And there's Poland around, too...
South Korea is very "affectionate" towards his brothers China and Japan... and he shows it by groping them.
Russia has Ho Yay towards China as well, much to the latter's horror. Russia has been seen sitting with China at the Allies Forces meetings, stalking China in a panda suit, and defends China against France and England at one moment then prompts him to live with him the next.
Japan is liked by both Greece and Turkey, spurning their rivalry even more, with Greece in the lead, especially after giving a "private lesson" to poor Japan.
Russia also has something for Japan. Belarus refers to Japan as "the one Big Brother wants" and that he has said "I want him, I want him" in Russia's CD single mini-drama, and Russia says to Japan that "you're bottom" and "under my power".
And China also has an obvious affection for Japan.
Not to mention that Sweden considers Finland his "wife" and is gay for him.
And Spain as well seeing as how France once groped him and kissed him and Romano is tsundere for him.
Romano as well. Spain seems to like him a lot and France once called him cute and stated that he wants him.
Kazuto ("Towa") Sakuma from Sensual Phrase. His androgynous good looks make not only women but also men swoon over him. He is... not amused.
Zabi: You're beautiful...Such a rare sight in such an ugly world. Thor: Beautiful? Don't you usually say things like that to girls?
Prince in the manwha 1/2 Prince. The female main character is the only female who plays as a male named Prince in a hugely popular online game. The gay guy in her party, who's her university lecturer IRL, is infatuated with her Bishōnen character. Also, Prince acquires a large Unwanted Harem of both male and female admirers.
Dr. Naoki Irie from Itazurana Kiss. The flamboyant Motoki is constantly lusting after him.
Akihisa Yoshi has five people that like him, including another guy and his sister.
And then there's HideyoshiKinoshita. Should note there are subtle hints in the novel that Hideoyoshi might have a small crush on Yoshi too.
Memori from Game X Rush. Played for comedy, when the judo team ("Can I call you 'Big Brother'?!"), the G-ing bodyguards, and the male kids at the elementary school become big fans of Memori.
In Kaze to Ki no Uta it seems like almost every male character has or would be willing to have sex with Gilbert.
Naruse Fuuta of Kawaii Akuma. He's so pretty and cute that everyone in his school, guys and girls alike, frequently comment on his beauty, fawn over him, wait on him hand and foot, act incredibly protective of him, and get jealous if he spends too much time with his boyfriend, Akiyoshi. Akiyoshi himself also counts as Naruse is obsessively and unhealthily in love with him, and he also had a fellow classmate try to jump him while his back was turned and a straight guy mentioned he wouldn't mind kissing Akiyoshi since he's so cute without his glasses.
Ayase of Okane Ga Nai is an extreme case where 95% of the straight guys he meets will either fall in love with him or simply want to have sex with him. This was lampshaded in an omake at the end of Chapter 39, where the auto mechanic thinks about how both President Kanou and his employee Kuba seem to be in love with Ayase but claim they're not gay. He then looks at his employees who are all drooling over Ayase, and concludes that Ayase-fever must be contagious. ** Ironically, the only men who aren't interested in Ayase at all are the gay guys. Who are interested in Kanou. Which makes sense, actually: Ayase is attractive to females because he's a Bishounen and attractive to straight males because he's delicate and pretty and adorable., while Kanou is attractive to the gay males (also females) because he's, like, crazy-uber-masculine , which fits in the Bara Genre stereotupe that Japanese gay men are more fond of.
Masashi of Onii-chan to Issho. Mizusawa falls for a crossdressing Masashi and calls him "Boss Lady". This does not desist even when Masashi is dressed in masculine clothing. In general, most men who do not realize Masashi's true gender are attracted to him. Additionally, from Tsuyoshi's point of view, this trope also applies to Rin, his Unlucky Childhood Friend.
Alviss of MÄR. "Man, Alviss-dono is popular among both men and women!", as stated by Edward during episode 88's Mär Heaven Network. Also, his enemy Phantom attempts to kiss him twice, brainwashes him and keeps him chained to his throne, and Alviss was practically molested by him.
Ryohei has had Lussuria go into fanboy mode over his muscular physique, declare that he's just his type, and promptly decide to take him home and make him a part of his "collection".
Tsuna. Gokudera's, Yamamoto's, and Mukuro's actions around him certainly says much. Gokudera, in particular is his hardcore fanboy.
Also, Xanxus views everyone as trash but has something for the one who defeated him aka Tsuna.
Tsuna's former rivals and enemies have become quite affectionate and friendly to him since being defeated by him.
Mukuro too. Ken and Chikusa's really like him.
Dino as well. Tsuna really likes him and looks up to him and in chapter 364 when Dino introduces himself as Tsuna's new English teacher we get a reaction shot of the class with the girls and one boy blushing here.
In the first episode of Death Note, a surprising number of men seem to be checking out Light. At each crossing he stops at, someone is giving him a sideways glance. And then there's his slightly too agog teacher when he listens to Light translate some lines to Japanese.
Let's see, you've got like every background character in episode 1, Ryuk follows him around everywhere, Raye Penber The Stalker, L and his weird obsession and surveillance cameras, Misa showing up on his door step, Takada directly asking him out, Matsuda and Mikami the Fanboys, and Near with his creepy smiles and he keeps calling and hanging up... Kira is a wanted man.
Kyo Sogoru of Zegapain. He has a Straight Gay character named Lu Sheng who loves him and possibly also Tomigai since he was willing to give his Sacred First Kiss to Kyo while filming a love scene for a movie Ryoko was making.
Pandora Hearts: Both Oz and Gil apply. Gil is heavily implied to be in love with Oz, and Break sometimes engages in some playful flirting with Oz as well. Also, Vincent is a Crazy Jealous Guy for Gil and Break likes to flirt with Gil too.
Otonashi from Angel Beats!. Naoi is obsessed in a Ho Yay-riffic kind of way with him and is his hardcore fanboy. Hinata has his fair share of moments where he seems interested in Otonashi, though he denies being gay. Igarashi, the guy who helped Otonashi take care of the train crash survivors, shows some of this, too. In fact, depending on how you interpret the ending, it's possible that only the guys want him.
Shinji Ikari from Neon Genesis Evangelion. Played straight, subverted, or both at once, depending on how you look at it. His interactions with Kaworu fall very deeply into Ho Yay territory, but end very messily. None of his relationships with the other characters turn out well either, due to his insecurities and everyone else's unique psychological issues.
On the other hand, Ryoji Kaji jokingly(?) flirts with him in Rebuild 2.0 — and, in Ikari Shinji Raising Project, Shinji gets unwanted attention from both Kaworu and Gendo.
There's a deleted/alternate scene on the 2.22 DVD where Kaji is introduced in a tram car, which ends with him suddenly saying "I love you" to Shinji before ducking out.
Asuka is regarded as "the kind of guy other men fall in love with" by members of his kendo club. When he's rumored to move to America he even gets a group of guys confessing their love for him.
And then there's Juuta who doesn't even hide the fact that he finds Asuka very charming, calls him Asuka-chan, tends to lose his sense of personal space around him, and even flirts with him a few times.
Shungo from Goshuushou Sama Ninomiya Kun. In episode three, he has groups of Macho Camp guys fawning over him and trying to come on to him. Also, Mayu's older brother Mikihiro has Ho Yay towards Shungo. He often goes out of his way to playfully tease him by getting in his face (literally), cornering him when no one's around, holding him close to his body so he can't get away when dragging him off to train, and even stalking him.
Tesshou from Wild Life. Professor Ryoto constantly hits on him.
Akira from the Togainu No Chi anime/manga and game is definitely a dude magnet. Keisuke is not so subtly in love with him and follows him around like a devoted puppy, Rin regularly comments on his looks, insinuates wanting to have sex with him, and acts all clingy around him, Shiki and other guys love to invade his personal space a lot and comment on his looks, and Arbitro has an "interest" in him.
Kaname from Vampire Knight has this "problem". He already has Yuki, Ruka, Sara, and countless screaming Day Class girls who want him. Not to mention all those Nobles practically shoving their daughters at him at the Aido family's soiree`. But on top of all this he has a very one-sided bromance with Hanabusa, and if you look closely there's a guy in line to give him chocolates in the Valentines Day chapter. And then there's Ichijou's loyalty and concern for Kaname brought to new and interesting heights as of the latest chapter if his conversation with Yuuki is anything to go by.
Kanata from Oto x Maho. Everyone wants him, be they male, female, straight, gay, you name it, they want him.
Akira has Kengo who's attracted to him, Shirogane who's in love with him, and Haruka who's blushed around him and is hinted to like him.
And Haruka as well as Kou loves to flirt with him.
Daisuke from D.N.Angel. He's subject to some major Ho Yay whenever Satoshi and Keiji are around, and he also gets some Ho Yay with Dark and Rokuto. In the anime, it is hinted that Satoshi may have romantic feelings for Daisuke. When this is brought up, he doesn't openly confess to anything, though he never denies the accusations either. If anything, he encourages the idea, which has led to the source of much confusion regarding his motives. It has even been stated outright by Dark that Daisuke is the one who causes Satoshi to turn into Krad. Krad himself has also hinted at Satoshi possibly wanting more than a friendship from Daisuke at least once in the anime, and more than twice in the manga.
Takara from Moe Kare. The entire school seems to love him regardless of gender or age.
Natsume himself becomes this in an episode of season one when he is possessed by an elegant female youkai and gives off a feminine aura. All of his male friends from school start blushing around him and appear very disturbed.
Shido from Nightwalker. Cain has kissed him, said that he loves him, and stalks him.
Haru wo Daiteita: Iwaki gets this constantly by both men who are essentially straight, and by gay men. This, of course, causes Katou to be very paranoid about every guy he meets, and sends him into Crazy Jealous Guy mode more than once (although admittedly he gets a lot better as time goes on).
Naru Taru: Takeo Tsurumaru. Norio is secretly in love with him.
Karakurizoushi Ayatsuri Sakon: Sakon. He melts the girls around him and he seems to be a little bit aware of this fact but he is too shy to do something about. His friend Fujita says that "Although I'm a guy, I think he is hot stuff".
No6: Nezumi, when the two mooks wanted "payment" from him after he kisses the prostitute. Also implied by Rikiga when he offers Nezumi a job as a gigilo. Also, Sion has mutual Homoerotic Subtext with him and kisses him on the lips. And he sometimes uses his sex appeal to charm other guys into doing things for him. In chapter 14 a male top No 6 official also hits on him.
And not to mention Sion who is the target of mutual Homoerotic Subtext with Nezumi and is even kissed by him. Also, in chapter 6 a random guy comes up to Sion and hits on him saying "You're very pretty like a doll."
Dee and Ryo from FAKE. Jemmy and Berkeley anyone? Not to mention that Dee and Ryo are a couple.
Takahashi Misaki from Junjou Romantica. Usagi, Haruhiko, and Ijuuin have passionate feelings for Misaki.
Ranmaru from Kizuna. Repeatedly, to the point where even his kendo club members tend to have a thing for him. Even guys trying to kill him seem to have enough time to remark on how hot he is. Although really, it's not like you could blame them.
Sora from Sukisho. Sunao and Hiromu Sakura are in love with him and Minato has attempted to have sex with him. Sunao too. He has Sora as a lover and many guys have flirted with him or commented on how attractive he is. And Nagase Kai, as Gaku Ichikawa is in love with him and Kai Nanami has Shinichirou as a lover and has had Soushi come on to him.
Sen and Swordfish from the yaoi manga Under Grand Hotel. Sen has Swordfish in love with him and has had numerous guys try to rape him, and Swordfish has Sen and Norman in love with him.
Tokidoki "Toki" Rikugou of Amatsuki. Kurotobi constantly hits on Toki, calls him cute and touches him a lot.
Negi from Mahou Sensei Negima! is a major Chick Magnet and Memetic Sex God already, but in this chapter is appears that he has his arch-rival Fate as a possible love interest pining for his affections. The end of the chapter even reads that the strongest love (?) rival appears. So yup, he counts, and we're damn shocked it took this long.
Hiroshi Kuzumi from Ookami Kakushi. Just ask Issei who stalks and tries to molest Hiroshi a few times.
Makoto Fujitani from Karin. Lots of guys seem enamored with him because of his beautiful looks and have frequently tried to jump him.
Osanai of Paprika. Himuro, seems to have fetishized Osanai, since we briefly see dirty magazines in his apartment with a younger Osanai on the cover, and his dreamscape features a towering statue of Osanai as a Greek god.
The titular character of Kunisaki Izumo No Jijou often attracts unwanted attention from guys due to his looks. Being a natural in playing as an onnagatanote female impersonator in kabuki does not help either (at least in his opinion).
Vassalord: Pretty much everyone who comes across Rayflo wants to sleep with him.
Get Backers has Kazuki. Also, there's Ban. Takuma Fudou has a one-sided homoerotic obsession with him.
In InuYasha, Inuyasha found himself on the receiving end of Jakotsu's attentions who was quite determined to show Inuyasha the affection he always gives to his favourites... which involves death and carved ears. Jakotsu did also admit that he found Miroku and Sesshoumaru very attractive as well... but his heart was now loyal to Inuyasha.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann has Kamina, Simon, Viral, and Rossiu. Leeron openly flirts with all of them at one point or another. Also, Simon and Kamina have loads of male fans in real life that have man crushes on them due to how Badass they are.
Ichigo Kurosaki of Bleach. He's very much a Chick Magnet and Muramasa from the anime said he was "infatuated" with Ichigo, and he also has received Ho Yay / Foe Yay from more than one male.
Ukitake. Oh boy, Ukitake. Despite never using his looks to his advantage (being a nice guy), he still has both women and men fussing over him in equal measure. One fainting spellon the beach has everyone instantly hovering anxiously around him. His subordinates dote upon him (Kiyone is madly in love with him, and we can't blame her) and even the other captains are quite taken with him. There's Kyouraku (who he's effectively got wrapped around his little finger) calling him "iro otoko" which means "lover, lady-killer, sexy guy" (make of that what you will), Sui-Feng (of all people!) pinning him to a tree with daggers and cutting his haori and kimono jacketto shreds while his 3rd seat took photos, and Amagai jumping him. It was the sake, sure. (Suuuuuure).
Byakuya Kuchiki has made Renji blush on occasions, and is a voted most attractive with the Women's Association. Not to mention the Foe Yay with Ichigo and Renji.
Played straight in Doushitemo Furetakunai: The main character captures the attention of several 'straight guys' during the story.
Otani from Lovely Complex. Seiko, a boy who regularly crossdresses and makes a convincing girl fell in love with Otani after Otani saved him from being attacked by a dog and even kissed him on the lips. Otani later found out Seiko was biologically male when he took off his shirt when tending to Otani's injury in the school infirmary. Seiko feared that Otani would find him disgusting but Otani reassured him that he didn't and they remained good friends.
Saizo of Brave 10. Kamanosuke certainly wants him as do a lot of girls.
Yukimura as well. Just ask Rokuro.
Kurama of Kamisama Kiss. In-universe. He also has lots of male fans.
Ko Kijin in Saiunkoku Monogatari is so beautiful that when he took the examination to qualify for government office, his looks distracted the other candidates so much that only he and two other people - both friends of his who were already accustomed to his beauty - were able to pass the exams, and thirty officials had to be fired for forgetting to ring the bell to signal the end of the exam period. He eventually took to wearing a mask constantly in order to hide his face, and even the threat of having him take off his mask during court is enough to cause chaos; when he actually takes it off, it entrances anyone who looks at him and sends several men into hysterics.
Mizutama from Pump Up has a pretty big male following due to his feminine looks.
Mawaru-Penguindrum: The seventh audio drama reveals that Shouma's friend Yamashita has a crush on him.
Corsair: Canale, the resident blind Long-Haired Pretty Boy, gets raped/attempted raped fairly consistently from the age of seven upwards and his brother has an unwanted lust for him as well as Ayace being in love with him.
Seimaden: Laures is hit by this so very much. Tetius, Count Berk, Count Marion all want him due to his beauty and strength.
Love Pistols: Half of the cast really. Played for humor in Norio's case, since it scares the hell out of him when his Smells Sexy pheromones suddenly kick in.
Lotte no Omocha: Naoya. When in a dress, he was ogled by the men in the Queen's harem and Kilik, and in normal clothes, by Griselda's mentor and adopted father, Atori (unknown to poor Griselda).
Hana No Mizo Shiru: Misaki. Kind of a given, since it's a Boys Love manga, but in addition to Arikawa and Kawabata, it's also generally said around school that his feminine looks attract men (and that he was sexually harassed by a male upperclassman one year).
A Cruel God Reigns: Ian, although it is often played for laughs. This also applies to Jeremy several times.
Kirito of Sword Art Online: Almost every girl Kirito meets seems to fall for him, and it's also heavily implied that Klein, a male character, has a thing for Kirito.
The Ping Pong Club: Yusuke to the point that when in drag his classmates declare him more beautiful than any woman.
One Piece: During the Dressrosa arc, when "White Horse" Cavendish, the "Prince Pirate" and captain of the Beautiful Pirates is introduced, several women faint from his mere appearance. He also attracts quite a few admiring looks and comments from the men (who all happen to be rough and tough gladiators), too.
Unrepentant Mad Scientist bastard he may be, even the most vehement of Huey Laforet's detractors in Baccano! will openly admit he's a damn pretty man. One of Victor's many complaints about Huey is that, along with being a crazy, dangerous, and morally bankrupt genius who will do anything For Science!, he's also "too goddamn handsome for [his] own good."
Check out the Marvel Star Wars comics. In one issue, there's a species, the Zeltrons, who are attracted to Force-sensitives. So when Luke Skywalker is on Zeltros, he naturally gets a legion of fangirls. And one fanboy◊.
Gambit is very much this. He can even charm men. For a while one of Remy's powers was hypnotic charm, which let him try swaying any sentient being of any gender to his side but that has been changed. This "power" is no longer mentioned, and it's heavily implied that he is just that charming.
Longshot in Ultimate X-Men charms a (later proved) gay Colossus & in [[X Factor]] Detective Lieutenant Weiss is clearly smitten and insists on being called by his first name...Leslie.
Akihiko/Daken in Marvel Comics. Again, justified due to the guy's powers: he has pheromone-related ones that allow him to alter emotions and perceptions in other people, thus making females and males want him. And even more: Daken himself is a Depraved Bisexual. So yeah.
It is notable that Daken's appeal is exclusively a function of his pheromones, rather than any kind of general attractiveness. Hulkling of the Young Avengers, despite being gay, is entirely unaffected because he is not a human. He is also fully aware that Daken is trying to influence him with his pheromone powers.
Batman. If The Joker's Foe Yay towards him is any indication. Harley & Ivy both think that the Joker only has eyes for Batman and the Joker has often professed affection towards Batman (complete with moments of desperate attention-needing). In the macabre Arkham Asylum, which is a canon Batman comic, Joker slaps Batman on the butt and continually hits on him throughout the comic. The pages are lined with homoerotic content and an unnatural level of sexual tension.
Can't forget Bruce's childhood friend turned villain Thomas Elliot who became Hush. He seems to obsessively stalk Bruce and even got plastic surgery to look like Bruce. Some of his lines exemplify the Foe Yay even more:
Hush: But never fear, Bruce.
Hush: I won't desert you before the final curtain.
Hush: I'm staying here to watch as the heartbeats slow and end.
Spider-Man. His enemy Chameleon once told him he loves him, right before jumping off a bridge. Also, Electro visits a shape-shifting prostitute in the Marvel Knights series, and it's strongly implied he wants her to transform into Spider-Man for him.
Naruto and Sasuke get this in slash fics sometimes when paired with each other or with other guys. "The Taste Of Your Lips" is an example of other guys wanting Sasuke and Sasuke in turn wanting Naruto.
As only a sophomore in high school, Jean-Paul (Northstar) is this in X-Men fanfic Mutatis Mutandis by Artemis's Liege, catching the eye of two upperclassmen and apparently initiating an affair with his combat instructor Wolverine, all seemingly straight.
Velvet Goldmine - in addition to his wife and devoted female assistant, Brian Slade / Maxwell Demon insinuates his way into the hearts (and in some cases beds) of his manager Cecil, fellow rocker Curt, groupie-wannabe Arthur, and briefly his stylistic progenitor Jack Fairy. He breaks them all.
Dorian in the 2009 version of The Picture Of Dorian Gray. There is literally no-one who can't be persuaded to screw him, regardless of gender. And age. And flight instinct. (You halfway expect James Vane to give it a go.)
"I am nearly fifty years old. A sober grown man. With children. Children with whom I have now sat through hundreds of movies. [...] And that Depp fellow. My God. I never had any idea who he was, but his name sounded like something created for a pubescent cover-boy for magazines published to hook thirteen year-old girls on make-up and bad music. Wasn't Depp the name of some hair-goo product back in the 60s? I am a straight male. I have several good friends who are gay, but have never fantasized about any gender but the female. But now I understand how women can experience swooning crushes on male film stars. He is simply extraordinary. So sly, so seductive, so canny! I read an interview in which Depp said he went through a slight depression when he had to stop playing Captain Jack Sparrow. I can see why. His inventiveness and sheer pleasure in inhabiting the character come through in every frame. How can I admit to my children that I now troll through fan websites about a former teen heart-throb?"
Brad Pitt as Achilles in Troy: in-universe example. (Of course, the Greeks were known for being a very gay-friendly society — see Mythology below.)
Camp: When Vlad enters his room to unpack, he is totally oblivious to the fact that everyone is fixated with him. "Everyone" would be four guys and a girl. After watching while Vlad unpacks his stuff, to try and determine whether he's straight or gay, the girl comes up with the following idea:
Ellen: Thirty foot rule? Spitzer: What's that? Ellen: Means Michael has to stay thirty feet away from him until we find out if he's straight or gay.
Of course, Michael doesn't stay away and we end up with a really weird love triangle and then some...
Louis Renault's description of Rick Blaine in Casablanca: "If I were a lady, and I were not around, I should be in love with Rick."
Just about every male OR female with more than two minutes of screen time gets at least some Ho Yay, Foe Yay, or plain ol' straight Ship Tease with Rick.
David Bowie's character Jack Celliers in the film Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence has this effect on the Japanese POW commandant Captain Yonoi, due to his evident heroic qualities and respectable integrity. The entire plot of the movie is actually driven by this instance of distanced man-love.
In the film Fight Club, the protagonist clearly has conflicting feelings about "Blondie", the extremely attractive young Space Monkey. In one scene, in his Brad Pitt persona, he kisses Blondie on the mouth, accompanied by a voice-over line about jealousy. Later, as Edward Norton, he beats Blondie to a pulp, remarking, "I felt like destroying something beautiful."
Just for the record, this super-dooper-pretty Space Monkey was called Angel Face and he was portrayed by Jared friggin' Leto.
Champ Kind: The bottom line is you've been spending a lot of time with this lady, Ron. You're a member of the Channel Four News Team. Ron Burgundy: That's a given. Champ Kind: We need you. Hell, I need you. I'm a mess without you. I miss you so damn much! I miss being with you. I miss being *near* you. I miss your laugh! [laugh's playfully and pulls on Ron's sleeve] Champ Kind: I miss your scent. [Composes himself, becomes serious] Champ Kind: I miss your musk... When this all gets sorted out, I think you and me should get an apartment together! Brian Fantana: Take it easy, Champ. Why don't you sit this next one out, stop talking for a while.
Jeffrey Beaumont of Blue Velvet. Frank Booth is a Depraved Bisexual who takes the hero out, covers his mouth with lipstick and kisses him while calling him pretty (the original, four hours long, script also implied pretty heavily that he raped him). And after all that, when he's chasing him to the woman's apartment, he threatens him with rape again and is still calling him pretty.
"I listed Murphy last cause I simply have to mention that this guy is too good looking. Look, Christian Bale is a handsome dude, but Murphy (who plays Scarecrow) is fucking gorgeous. I was getting lost in his dreamy eyes, man. Like Holmes, Murphy was way too young for his supposed profession (in this case a psychiatrist); unlike Holmes, he was so good looking that I bought it."
Harold And Kumar Go To White Castle: At least two guys show some attraction to Kumar in the first film; an old man in the hospital tries to hold his hand, and one of the medics is obviously infatuated.
In Another Cinderella Story, Joey Parker sets up a booth to find the masked girl he met at the dance. A few boys get in the line.
Thomas of The Dresden Files is a supernaturally-sexy White Court Vampire, and this is a good thing in his usual circles but causes problems when he must walk among Muggles. When he brought up how hard holding down a job was given what happened to women when they got around him, Dresden says something to the effect of "At least it was a woman that time." An apparently straight male character once said of him (when believing him to be Dresden's lover) "it's okay, even I notice how good he looks."
Hikaru Genji from Tale of Genji was known to inspire men to weep from his beauty. Of course, Everyone Was Bi back in the Heian era, so it wasn't as much of a big deal.
Not just Genji; a lot of the beautiful men in that story spend a lot of time surreptitiously admiring each other and thinking "Man, if he were a woman, I'd totally do him... You know what, maybe I'd do him anyway."
D from the Vampire Hunter D novels is regularly described being so jaw-droppingly beautiful that he entrances all women and even makes men stare. He's described this way so damn often it actually gets downright irritating.
Read any scene that contains Nightwing in a Batman novel by Devin Grayson. The textual mooning over D's beauty, grace, and attractiveness will look positively restrained.
Dustfinger. Men, women, animals, fairy-tale creatures, fire, DEATH. Quite impressive for an excellent fire-eater and a run-of-the-mill Loveable Rogue.
Francis Crawford of Lymond in Dorothy Dunnett's Lymond Chronicles. His male lackeys always seem to fall in love with him, even his sister wants him, and in one book he screws half the French court.
In the first book, even the prosecutor at Lymond's trial says if he were ten years younger and a girl, he'd woo Lymond.
Daemon, from the Black Jewels series, manages to use this, along with everything else sexual, as a weapon. Paraphrased:
Rainier: (who is a homosexual male, and is dancing with Daemon) You can be a sadistic bastard when you want, can't you? Daemon: Ah, but you'd let me hurt you, wouldn't you? * Temperature drops a few degrees.* Rainier: *Says nothing, but looks very, very scared.*
The novelization of the original Star Trek, specifically the episode, "Who Weeps for Adonis?", has Bones telling Kirk about the medical mystery buried in Apollo's "gorgeous chest"; then again, Greek god.
In the Outlander series, it's rather ironic to note that Claire's husband Jamie seems to end up having more male admirers than Claire herself. The author must be a Yaoi Fangirl. Especially interesting in the case of how her husband from the present's ancestor Captain John Randall (who looks identical to him), was almost made to look like a romantic interest for Claire in the past timeline, only for him to become obsessed with Claire's husband and hate Claire because he's jealous of how she's Jamie's wife. Also, the Duke of Sandringham apparently tried (unsuccessfully) to do Jamie when Jamie was young, as well.
Christopher Marlowe's poem Hero And Leander practically name drops this trope. It barely describes Hero, the beautiful woman, but Leander is described in detail, as a really hot guy. Then, this happens:
Had wild Hippolytus Leander seen Enamoured of his beauty had he been. His presence made the rudest peasant melt That in the vast uplandish country dwelt. The barbarous Thracian soldier, moved with nought, Was moved with him and for his favour sought. Some swore he was a maid in man's attire, For in his looks were all that men desire.
Translated into Modern English that says: "So hot even the guys want him, even guys who like hunting better than sex. But we're straight guys, so he must be a woman in drag!"
El Draco from Oxana Pankeeva's Strange Kingdom Croniclesuntil he was mutilated and raped by really BAD guy who wanted him. He was not only raped, but tortured so badly that it took corrective surgery to make him looking normally, let alone handsome. Anyway, his charisma still remained and scars only attracted the girls.
Kushiel's Legacy: Alcuin and Delaunay are both bisexual Yaoi Guys with more notable male lovers than female ones. Averted with Joscelin when he and Phèdre are sold into slavery. The Skaldi women find him, um, desirable, but the Skaldi men thinks he's a pretty-boy with no beard. At least, they acknowledge his "manliness" when he kills one of their own in a sanctioned duel.
Patrick Bateman of American Psycho (in the film adaption as well where he's portrayed by Christian Bale) In one scene Bateman is about to kill his associate, Luis, by strangling him from behind, but Luis mistakes this as Bateman coming onto him, causing him to reveal that he's gay and in love with Bateman.
A Justified Trope as in the Series 2 episode "Fragments", Jack tells Ianto that the aftershave-like smell is actually 51st-century pheromones, however there is still something innately appealing about him. In The Stolen Earth Donna is attracted to him at first sight, suggesting that his appearance does do most of the work.
In fact, even Jack wants Jack (Jack's namesake, the real Jack Harkness, comes on to him in the past).
This easily goes for his actor, John Barrowman, as well. The straight James Marsters (aka Spike, John Hart) is on the record as saying he's a better kisser than Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Ianto Jones gets this a bit, however he seems to only draw the attention of men in the show. So either destiny is making him bi, or the writers think he's too much of a pansy to attract a woman.
The Doctor of Doctor Who, with his enormous list of, er, "companions", male and female, almost all of whom would go to the ends of the universe for him, and that's before considering his epic, centuries-long (for them) Foe Yay with the Master.
The Ninth Doctor had Jack crushing hard on him (and then pining for almost 150 years...), had oddly sexual scenes with Van Statten (there was no real reason to strip the Doctor before scanning him...), and at least the male recapper on Television Without Pity was instantly smitten.
And now the Eleventh Doctor is officially on this list.
The Doctor: Jefferson, Adams, Hamilton. River! River Song: Surnames of three of America's founding fathers. The Doctor: Lovely fellows. Two of them fancied me.
Bongo: I know that this prob'ly won't interest you, but I'd hate myself for the rest of my life if I didn't at least suggest it. Ace: Suggest what? Bongo: If you're interested, I'll be in my quarters at lunchtime, covered in taramasalata. Ace: I didn't know your bread was buttered that side, Bongo. Bongo: It isn't. I've been happily married for 35 years. It's just, a chap like you can turn a guy's head. Ace: I'm sorry, Bongo. Lunch is... on Mellie. Bongo: Would it make any difference if it was... hummus? Ace: I'm sorry, Bongo. I'm strictly "butter-side-up." Bongo: Understood. (Ace leaves the office) What a guy!
Cat is so vain that he is convinced he's an example.
Lister: You're being a little bit cocky for a guy who's never actually met a real woman before. Cat: I've seen mirrors! I have eyes! Let's face it, buddy — I have a body that makes men wet!
In Angel, Doyle has this discussion about the eponymous vampire.
Doyle: He likes playing the hero. Walking off into the dark, his long coat flowing behind him in that mysterious and attractive way. Cordelia: Is this a private moment? 'Cuz I could leave you alone. Doyle: I'm not saying I'm attracted... (later, Angel leaves the building, walking off into the dark, his long coat flowing behind him) Doyle: Maybe I'm a little attracted.
It bears pointing out that Doyle passed his visions to Angel in one alternate timeline, and the only way we've seen visions passed on is kissing.
Xander as well has shown attraction to Spike, with the immortal line uttered when Xander accuses Buffy of sleeping with Spike:
Xander: No one is judging you. It's understandable. Spike is strong and mysterious and sort of compact but well-muscled. Buffy: I'm not having sex with Spike! But I'm starting to think that you might be!
Not to mention the time when the Love Dodecahedron of the previous series was explained to a newcomer, who protested "Is there anyone here who hasn't slept with everyone else?" Cut to shot of Spike and Xander looking awkwardly at each other, then away.
In Season 8, Andrew says out loud to Buffy that he likes Spike a lot more than Angel, and states that his heart is broken when he sees Angel and Buffy having sex.
If Youtube is any indication, Rudy from Generation Kill may be the next Big Boss. The quote "I love you, Fruity Rudy!" does little to assuage this, as it invites repeating from viewers in unrelated situations.
Lampshaded when the Marines try to invert it by telling the reporter, "It doesn't make you gay if you think Rudy's hot. We all think he's hot. Jesus, you're beautiful." (He says this because he notices the reporter staring at Rudy, clearly captivated.)
From the non-fiction book on which the series was based:
Sgt. Rudy Reyes, 31, from Kansas City, Missouri, has stripped off his shirt and is washing his chest with baby wipes, every muscle gleaming in the flickering light of a nearby oil fire. Reyes doesn't quite fit the image of the macho brute. He reads Oprah's magazine and waxes his legs and chest. Other members of the unit call him "fruity Rudy" because he is so beautiful. "It doesn't mean you're gay if you think Rudy's hot. He's just so beautiful." Person tells me. "We all think he's hot."
In the film, Reyes — played by Reyes himself, reportedly because no actor was hot enough (riiiight!) — is initially nude for the scene, then gets dressed.
There's a hilarious scene in Boston Legal when Brad senses that Jeffrey is competition, so he tells him that in this office, Brad is the guy who all the girls wanna sleep with. Jeffrey goes, "I can tell that — even I want to sleep with you."
Supernatural: Dean Winchester. In addition to hitting on and being appreciated by all females in the area, has had several... suspect interactions that generally end with "I don't swing that way." Also, in “My Heart Will Go On” Balthazar states "Sorry, you have me confused with the other angel. You know, the one in the dirty trench coat who's in love with you," meaning Castiel.
In-universe example: Dr. Sexy, MD. Ask Dean about it.
Castiel. Dean is clearly in love with him. His archangel brother calls him a "pretty boy angel", and the male demon Crowley very discreetly checks him out while acknowledging the following:
Crowley: There's a lot of angels swooning over you...you've got what they call, 'sex appeal'.
Amusingly, whenever another character points out the "profound bond" that Dean and Castiel seem to have, the normally snarky Dean goes completely silent and cannot even seem to muster a denial.
Two and a Half Men: Charlie is quite the womanizer and has had several flings throughout the course of the show. Also, in the episode "Tucked, Taped and Gorgeous" he attracted the attentions of a gay guy named Greg who called Charlie "pretty" and in the episode "The Sea Is a Harsh Mistress" a male lifeguard shows up at his house (he had saved Charlie from drowning earlier in the episode) who clearly had developed an interest in him, and he asks Charlie out. Charlie ends up agreeing.
In "Tucked, Taped and Gorgeous", Alan begins to question his sexuality after he becomes friends with Greg, but Greg tells him that he's not gay.
Greg: Alan, you're not gay. Alan: Are you sure? Greg: Do you find me sexually attractive? Alan: No. Greg: Do you find any man sexually attractive? Alan: No. Well, maybe George Clooney. Greg: Clooney doesn't count.
Black Books: an author of travel novels reduces Fran to a giggling schoolgirl - as well as Manny. Curmudgeonly Bernard Black marches over to give the author what for and ends up just as charmed as the other two are.
30 Rock: Jamie, the cute coffee boy. Frank, of all people, has a crush on him. Also, two of Liz's romantic interests (Floyd and Danny) have mutual bromances with Jack.
Mad TV: "My Gay Dad Always Steals My Boyfriends Even Though They Say They're Straight Because He's Just So Irresistible They Can't Help Themselves And I Hate It!"
The teenaged character finally thinks she reaches a solution by going out with a blind guy, but even HE can't resist when her dad walks by, sensing his 'great ass'
Saturday Night Live's Mango. Though, based on the Ellen DeGeneres episode, it might just be that everyone subconsciously perceives him as a woman (considering he's only been pursued by straight men and lesbians).
Happens in Merlin in surprisingly Russell T Davies fashion, when the (male) Villain of the Week in Sweet Dreams takes a little time out from his hectic evil schedule to go all reluctant fangirl over Arthur:
Every woman in the land is attracted to this boy! I'm almost attracted to him myself...
Julian from Trailer Park Boys. Male characters including Jim Lahey, Officer George Green, Randy, and Conky have all commented on his sexy black t-shirt and/or resemblance to Patrick Swayze. This trope is particularly prominent in The Movie: Countdown to Liquor Day.
Well...Lahey also has an If It's You, It's Okay going on with Randy
Vince Noir from The Mighty Boosh is a prime example. He's able to turn straight men gay simple by looking at them - it doesn't help, of course, that he's played by Noel Fielding, sexiest comedian in the world, and voted sexiest man of the year by NME more than once - maybe it's the dazzling blue eyes.
The Drew Carey Show: When Drew is in limbo, all his fantasies come to life and the polite, dutiful, make-up free Mimi informs him that he has a threesome with beautiful women scheduled at two, a foursome at three, and at five he will have sex with George Clooney. (Drew's straight, but he's not dead.) Angry, Drew asks if she ever stopped to think that he might want to take a nap before he has sex with George Clooney?
Jack Morgan from Look Around You, according to Peter Packard in the Health episode.
Dr. Chase on House. It seems everyone finds Chase ungodly attractive - House ponders aloud whether Foreman might be gay because he was unaffected by a pretty woman whom House couldn't think logically around. Wilson, without missing a beat, asks "Did he turn into an idiot around Chase?" He also ranges from getting hit on by a gay patient to constant jokes by House:
House: Little girls who kiss frogs expect them to turn into you. Chase: Oh, come on, I'm not that good looking. House: Yes, you are. (pause) Wilson: You kind of are.
Chuck Bass. At one point his girlfriend traded a kiss with him for a toast at a fancy event, and the person she made the trade with was a man.
Seen on a sign in the crowd when The Colbert Report was in Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics: "Marry me Stephen! (It's legal here!)"
Degrassi The Next Generation had Craig say this to Marco: "You know, you are a great guy....You're a little short, but that just adds to how cute you are. That I would find you if you were a girl or I was not a guy. Is not gay. Just tell me this is working." Then Dylan comes in and Marco spontaneously kisses Craig.
Also, Sean. Granted, the only guy in canon is Marco. Still, Marco, Emma, Manny, Paige, and Ashley all make some unambiguous romantic overtures toward Sean.
In an episode of Home Improvement named "Bachelor of the Year", Al was declared 'Detroit's Most Eligible Bachelor' and women started to hit on him. In one scene, a guy came up to him and enthusiastically introduced himself to Al.
Michael from Burn Notice. Fiona seems to be in love with him, male villains seem to have a thing for calling him "pretty", Gilroy seems to be actively hitting on him, Seymour clearly has a massive one-sided man-crush on him, and Word Of God says that Larry is "primarily motivated by his love for Michael".
Jon Stewart of The Daily Show, despite being a happy heterosexual, has been canonically shipped with a variety of real live men, including George Clooney, Ricky Gervais, Brian Williams, and especially Stephen Colbert.
Robin, Barney and Marshall all end up with hopeless, full-blown crushes on one-off character Stan in How I Met Your Mother. Barney actually tells Stan that he loves him, and both Marshall and Barney seem to want to go on a date with him at the end of the episode. And Marshall and Barney also have an argument over which one of them Ted has gay dreams about; it devolved into this.
Marshall: Ted and I have a history! I could do things to him that would blow his m... ...Why do we keep trying to have sex with Ted?
Barney: I don't know; it's weird.
EUReKA: Charles Grant. There's something about his unapologetic old-fashioned machismo...
And Nathan Stark. He may not be the "perfect specimen but he's damn close."
There's one scene in Slings and Arrows in which Richard Smith-Jones, now beloved by the cast of the musical he's taken over, wakes up next to one of the female cast with whom he'd slept earlier, and who calls him "Big Dick"... and then pan over to reveal one of the male cast, who also calls him... Possibly because he'd taken a full tab of ecstasy the other night; his first time using the drug, no less.
Michael from Prison Break. T-Bag has had "designs" on Michael since their first meeting. Also, Tweener seeing as he's been hit on by T-Bag as well.
Corner Gas: Quoting Davis: "Hank's... different... when he's fishing."
This guy on Australia's Got Talent. Judge Brian Mc Fadden seems pretty damn pleased.
Michael Scott's epic mancrush on Ryan the Temp on the U. S. version of The Office. He gives Ryan the "Hottest Office Member" Dundie award, openly admits he'd sleep with Ryan (in "The Fire"), and calls Ryan "sweetcheeks" once in Season 3. And there are many more examples.
Andy: "From now on, we will be using code names. You can address me as Eagle One. Ann, code name: Been There, Done That. April is Currently Doing That. Donna is It Happened Once In A Dream. Chris, code name: If I Had To Pick A Dude. Ben is Eagle Two."
And, when Leslie points out that there are no women on Chris's gender equality commission.
Councilman Milton: "There's a lady right next to you." *Chris looks up* "Oh, wait, no. It's just a very beautiful man."
David Bowie. The world is full of straight men who say "it's okay, because it's Bowie".
A traditional English folk song (Child Ballad #100; it has many variations with different names, among them "John Barbour", "Tom the Barber", and "Willie O'Winsbury"), about a king's daughter who falls for a sailor and the king's disapproval, contains the following lines, where the king changes his mind:
Then he called his sailors all / By one, by two, by three John Barbour was the first he called / But the last came down was he. When he came a dancing down, / He was clothed all in white His cheeks were like the roses red / And his teeth were ivory bright. He paid their wages with a smile / And to John Barbour he did say If I was a woman as I am a man / My bed fellow you would be.
There is a song by the English band Federal Drugs Administration called Rampant Russell, where the singer complains about how unfair it is that he's the ONLY one who hasn't slept with Russell Brand. He ends the song with "And I'm not even gay!"
Freddie Mercury, mainly in the '70s. But some also find his '80s appearance hot... Amplified by the fact that he was bisexual.
Peter Steele of Type O Negative. Amplified by the fact that he posed naked for Playgirl. It got to the point where he wrote a Type O Negative song titled "I Like Goils" as a response to all of his male admirers.
Garbage's song "Cherry Lips"
"With your cherry lips and golden curls You could make grown men gasp when you go walking past And in your hot pants and high heels Why they could not believe that such a body was for real It seems like rainbows would appear Whenever you came near the clouds would disappear Because you look just like a girl Your baby blues would flash and suddenly a spell was cast.."
"It's crazy how you can go from being Joe Blow ...To everybody on your dick...no homo"
Japanese musician Gackt has gone on many a TV show hosted by men, only to have them remark how beautiful they find him and how good he smells. The most extreme example was a show he did in 2009 where there were about six interviewers, all male, and every single one of them commented on his sex appeal. One went as far to say that if Gackt kissed him, he would gladly have sex with the guy.
Older Than Feudalism: In Greek Mythology, young men are considered suitable sex objects for mature men. For instance, the Spartan prince Hyacinthos was so handsome and athletic that both the wind god Zephyrus and the god Apollo (one of the biggest Casanovas in the Greek pantheon — after Zeus, that is) had HUGE Stupid Sexy Flanders over him and fought over his attentions. With deadly consequences for the poor guy: thanks to Zephyrus, he got his skull opened with a flying discus for choosing Apollo. OUCH. Well, at least Apollo used Hyacinthos's blood to create the hyacinth flower, so...
The Nala episode of the Mahabharata opens with a lengthy description of Nala's virtues, including the fact that he was "desired by both men and women."
Loki, of Norse myth, likes to crossdress and turn into females from different species now and then. He once seduced a horse to prevent it from helping a giant take over Asgard.
The biblical Joseph. Everybody knows about Potiphar's wife, but did you know that one of Potiphar's motives for buying Joseph was Joseph's astounding good looks? Luckily, before anything could happen the angel Gabriel castrated Potiphar (who was henceforth known as Potiphera).
Only according to the commentaries. None of this (save for Potiphar's wife) is anywhere in The Bible. Potiphar an Potiphera are two different, completely unrelated characters.
Joseph's beauty is a big deal in various mystical Islamic traditions. In Sufism, Joseph is basically the epitome of male beauty.
Peter North has both male and female fans. He also stared in gay porno films as Matt Ramsey.
The dark splatterpunk roleplaying game KULT features a bunch of disadvantages and curses for Player Characters, among which is the flaw "Sexy" (with the prerequisite that the character needs to have a high Charisma score before the player can select it). Any character having this disadvantage exudes massive sexual magnetism, which transcends cultural norms, gender or sexual orientation. As the rulebook puts it, the character will have to live with the fact that anyone he or she meets will not listen to a word (s)he says but stare at his/her ass, crotch or breasts (respectively) and launch a massive seduction attempt, whether the character wants to have sex or not. Of course, this being KULT, "seduction attempt" can easily mean groping or rape. In fact, it doesn't matter if the character is chaste like a saint or a shameless rake, (s)he is still fresh meat on the market, figuratively speaking.
You don't want to know what happens when "fresh meat" is meant literally. "Cannibalism" is another flaw entirely.
GURPS allows the enhancement Universal to be added to various levels of Appearance making it so that no only do the guy and girl like you but anything sentient will find you attractive.
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater: This is pretty much the source of the Everyone Is Gay For Big Boss meme on 4chan. The character in question has a rather profound effect on both female (EVA) and male (Ocelot) characters thanks to sheer masculine sex appeal. This carried over to the fanbase - every now and again someone will pop up on the aforementioned image board and declare their wonderful gay love for him. Metal Gear Solid 4 took it to the extreme by perfectly seriously revealing that the events of the entire timeline were caused by a very large amount of people being gay for Big Boss.
This is pointed out in this page of The Last Days Of FOXHOUND, in which Liquid Snake comments, "Did any of you not have a crush on my dad?" to a starry-eyed rest of the group (minus Mantis and Raven).
Characters like Ellis tend to almost exclusively attract heterosexual females, and indeed almost all of his fanbase is female, which would actually make him the opposite of this trope. If there's anybody who qualifies for Even the Guys Want Him specifically, it would be Francis, whose buff biker appearance has earned him a noticeable following among actual men.
Leon from Resident Evil 4 falls victim to this as well sometimes. Examples include; the male co-host of X-Play who admitted that if he were ever to have a gay experience it would have to be with Leon, and Conan O'Brien, who commented that Leon was 'hot'.
In the RPG Fable I, an NPC's romantic interest in the (male) player character is represented by a pink heart above their head. If the player ups his Attractiveness enough, those pink hearts will start to appear above some of the guys as well as the girls. It is possible to propose to and marry these guys, too.
Also on the subject of Zelda, arguably Link in thesevideos.
Bridget from Guilty Gear, as in "Everyone's gay for..." And it isn't pure Memetic Mutation: any discussion on the character will have multiple male fans saying "I don't care, *she's* still hot." Of course, being a crossdressing Bishōnen, a girl finding Bridget attractive is in the same "trap."
Fanart of Bridget as an actual girl doesn't go over well at all. Apparently, even male and female fans prefer Bridget just the way he is, confusion and all.
In The Sims 2 expansion "FreeTime", one of the rewards for a life well lived is a magic lamp containing a genie. If the Sim chooses "Give Me Beauty" as one of threw wishes, s/he is granted automatic maximum chemistry with any Sim of his/her preferred gender, and all the Sim needs to do to activate this trope is to "Flirt... Check Sim Out" at least one Sim from each gender. A bug in the code then causes every NPC and their sister to ring the Sim's doorbell at all hours of the night, making a good night's sleep all but impossible but guaranteeing a gigantic stable of friends and/or lovers. Be Careful What You Wish For.
Ezio from Assassins Creed II. As he walks/runs/parkours across Italia, assorted allies of both genders comment regularly on how skilled, graceful, and attractive he is. Ezio is hard-pressed to hop a two-foot gap between rooftops without a nearby group of thieves making some kind of positive comment.
Haseo from .hack//GU. He's got Endrance, Ovan, and Bo directing much Ho Yay towards him.
Arguably Yuri from Infinite Space, considering Cico's obsession to him. There's also his relationship with Dietrich, which is rather questionable when compared to his relationship with other military characters.
Teddie's human form from Persona 4. He makes extensive use of the Bishie Sparkle and uses it to manipulate women that he comes across. Not to mention during the crossdressing scene he was the only one able to pull off looking like a girl. One male commentator even exclaimed "I'd hit it" even after finding out that Teddie was actually a guy.
Tatsuya from Persona 2 is explicitly shown to be a chick magnet. Almost all the female cast wants him, major or minor characters. Heck, even some of the guys (*cough*Jun*cough*) want him.
Brother Nier. Emil is implied to be in love with him. Interviews with the makers confirmed that this is true. He also got hit on by older men when he was a boy.
Arguably Shirou Emiya from Fate/stay night. Issei "Blushes Like Mad Whenever Shirou So Much As Looks At Him Funny" Ryudou has a fairly obvious crush on him.
Marius from My Life In Blue is an androgynously handsometransguy with admirers of all sexes and sexual orientations. He tends to get annoyed when lesbians hit on him, though. Alex also has the habit of making people question their sexuality in his presence.
Tip from Skin Horse, by the same author, is so attractive that even male dogs want him. When he himself is turned into a wolf, anyway. Not to mention Gavotte a literal Hive Mind by virtue of being a swarm of bees. Who STILL wants Tip.
And now that Skin Horse has been defined as a sequel to Narbonic (to much Squee from... well, all the fans), the natural result is that Tip and Artie meet up.
Ménage à 3: Dillon has claimed to have "turned" several straight guys in the past with his Swirly-Go-Round kissing technique. Cosplaying as Gary's favorite porn star even got Gary to make out with him under the pretense of helping him learn how to do it right, but to no apparent lasting effect.
In Homestuck, every single member of Jake English's circle of friends has a crush on him, including the other boy, and (sort of) his AI duplicate.
Deconstructed a little later on. Because all of his friends have a thing for him, there isn't a single person he can go to to talk about any of this (until Jane accidentally and inaccurately tells him she doesn't have a thing for him, anyway), he's constantly having to tip-toe around sensitive subjects without letting anyone else find out what anyone else feels or that he knows about it, often questions whether it's even true in the first place or he's all just egotistically imagining it, and is showing signs of wanting to get together with one of them partially because he feels guilty about rejecting everyone.
Boy Meets Boy: Skids. As in, girls want him, gays want him, bisexuals want him, and his best friend who's otherwise heterosexual wants him.
Nostalgia Chick: Hugh Jackman. All the women want him. And at least 25% of the men. And the other 75% at least a little.
Furry Fury: Actually more like ONLY the guys want him. Poor Sinku.
Duke Devlin from Yu Gi Oh The Abridged Series. This is what Joey Wheeler says of Duke: "What does he have that I don't got?... Besides the fangirls?... And the pretty hair?... And those gorgeous green eyes?" Duke then reminds Joey about his "sweet ass", and Joey admits, "Yeah, and a sweet ass too! But other than that, he's got nothing."
Narrator: Warning: This episode contains copious amounts of Duke Devlin. Women with heart conditions are advised to not look directly at Duke Devlin. This also applies to women without heart conditions; he's very pretty. See? See how pretty he is? He's very pretty. I'd like to run my fingers through his hair, and I'm just a voice.
Yami: Mustn't... look... directly at his face... so beautiful! No words to describe it... they should have sent a poet!
It was even Lampshaded by Duke himself in episode 38: "I know how she feels. Guys are proposing to me all the time!"
Donnie DuPre from Demo Reel seems to be a case of only guys wanting him. His wife hates him, a blonde girl who he tries hitting on is completely uninterested, while he and Rebecca share some Ship Tease she's still aiming for Tacoma, and the less said about the yandere daughter the better, but Tacoma, Carl, Uncle Yo, Egoraptor and Quinn all eventually melt under his sad Puppy-Dog Eyes and shameless flirting.
Timmy's 16-year old persona, Gah the Norwegian Male Supermodel in Love at First Height.
He is Norwegelicious.
Not just his 16 year old persona either, but his normal ten year old self if the way Sanjay acts around him is any indication and let's not forget the Gender Bender episode where A.J. was attracted to Timmy's Timantha persona.
2D from Gorillaz, especially from Murdoc's point of view, who called him 'pretty' more than once. Well, Murdoc is a Depraved Bisexual, after all, but he hates 2D, which means calling him 'pretty' actually says something:
Colby in Dan Vs. Dan remarks how "dreamy" he is and spends an episode admiring him. But then again, Dan sexuality is up for debate.
Parodied on an episode of The Simpsons, like everything else. Homer flirts hopelessly with a "sensitive but rugged" manatee lover, completely failing to understand why Marge isn't in love with him.
Homer does this pretty much to every man Marge in whom shows interest. In another episode, Marge (with Laser-Guided Amnesia) starts getting along with a smart, charming, kindly man:
Homer: He's Marge's and my dream man!
Lisa climbs a red wood tree to impress a good looking humanitarian. When Homer yells at the guy for his good looks, the boy says Lisa did it on her own, and Homer replies "I'm sorry, I was lost in your eyes!"
Homer himself believe it or not. He has shown that when he has hair and looses weight he's actually not bad to look at. He's married to Marge and has managed to attract numerous beautiful woman throughout the show. He has also been kissed by another man on two separate occasions who had developed feelings for him, and while clearly surprised didn't react negatively either.
Ned Flanders. Homer has said that he's sexy (he's the Trope Namer for Stupid Sexy Flanders after all) and he's also hugged and kissed Ned and filmed him naked in the shower.
In "Hungry Hungry Homer", while Homer is convincing Sherri to go to a dance with Bart she says she would rather go with Tommy and Homer comments "Well duh! He's breathtaking."
In the American cartoon adaptation of Darkstalkers a running gag would have people tell Rikuo that he is "strangely attractive" for a fish man. Mostly it was the guys who said this.
Justin in Total Drama Island. Owen, particularly, won't stop talking about how hot he is. Neither will Chris, the host, who seems to think Justin's last name is "McGorgeousness" and objected to Justin being voted off. Justin's so handsome he entered the talent competition with "being handsome" as his talent.
Owen: There are two syllables for hot, "jus" and "tin." Man that guy is just so hot I could kiss him! (pause) Because he's a good teammate! D'oh, why did I say that?
In the second season it seems that everyone can't keep their eyes off Justin. In one ep Chris had to struggle to not be distracted by his beauty.
Alejandro fits into this already:
Alejandro: Perhaps, I could assist. (helps Bridgette and Izzy up) Izzy: Wow-ie! Bridgette: I-I have a boyfriend! Alejandro: And amigos, please, allow me, (offers to help up Tyler and Ezekiel) Ezekiel: Wow, eh. Tyler: I like girls!
Bridgette even points this out in the Aftermath.
Geoff: Imagine if it were ME in the same situation! Bridgette: YOU'D KISS HIM TOO!
Lampshaded in The Xtacles, when President Stan wants a new statue design that won't end up being raped by Rape Ape. One candidate redesign has so much Ho Yay factor that Stan objects by saying, "I practically want it!"
In a Family Guy episode, Peter Griffin is so taken with Bill Clinton that he ends up damaging his relationship with Lois, his wife. By the end of the episode both of them have been physically seduced by Clinton as well, both saying afterward, "You're a very persuasive guy."
In one scene Peter responds to Christian Bale's statement of "We're done professionally" with an excited "Are you asking me out on a date?"
In one episode of Spongebob Squarepants, Squidward suddenly became handsome and he was chased around town by men and women who wanted to look upon his handsomeness.
And what about the large amount of Ho Yay that Spongebob has for Squidward? Seriously. "Sleep tight my little angel..." "Squidward smells...good." "I like Squidward." *blushes*
Yes, but normally, no one but Spongebob thinks that of Squidward; In every other episode, he's an example of Only The Sponge Wants Him.
Who can forget the Memetic Sex God Squilliam. To quote Squidward: "Oh no, he's hot!"
Also in the Spongebob special, Spongebob vs The Big One, JKL gotten the attention of Spongebob, Patrick and Squidward. Squidward even faints because JKL's hottness is just that overwhelming.
A comb salesman on The Marvelous Misadventures Of Flapjack was so gorgeous that he had to wear a mask so that people would pay attention to his combs rather than his face. When his face is revealed, men and women (but mostly men) chase him around town and throw money at him.
Donald Duck: One could argue that in The Three Caballeros Panchito and Jose are allover Donald. Even kissing him a few times. In the House of Mouse episode of the Three Caballeros, Donald also is forced to wear a dress before tearing it apart in a rage exposing his nude and toned body while the other two hoist him up...for all to see. In the comics The Three Caballeros Ride Again and The Magnificent Seven (Minus Four) Caballeros, they both praise constantly praise his machismo and bravery. Even Pete in "Music Store Donald" briefly falls in love with him when he hears Donald play the harp. Lastly, more cartoons have shown Donald naked or referred to his body than any other Disney character! Gotta admit this duck is sexy!
Jonesy from 6teen. In the episode "Stupid Over Cupid" a Gay Cowboy wanted to go on a date with him.
Virgil in Static Shock. Richie, his best friend, rather intensely fanboys him and is hinted to be gay for him.
The title character of Johnny Test. If you watch any episode where Johnny's sisters try to woo Gil, at least one of Gil's lines will be either "Hi, Johnny!" (if he is around) or "Say hi to Johnny for me!"
In "Join the Johnny Scouts", Johnny becomes a Ladybird Scout to win a bike if he sells 1000 cookies. Gil doesn't quite notice that Johnny is dressed like a girl. "I hate these cookies, but I love you, bro-ham! Laters, Johnny whose new look I can't figure out!"
Pinky And The Brain: There's also the episode "Pinky Suavo", where Pinky, through an accident with Brain's "Personalitron", becomes a charismatic, suave, romantic figure loved by everyone. And we mean everyone. Seriously, watch Brain's initial reaction to the new Pinky and just try to deny that he's suddenly developed at least a mancrush on him.
On Lil Bush Lil' Vladimir Putin. As Lil' Rummy put it "He's got that cool bear, that mysterious accent, and that beautiful well oiled chest."
