When a guy is so studly and great that he inspires worship and desire in both women andmen, it's Even the Guys Want Him. But when a female character's female fan club matches or exceeds her male fan club, you've stumbled upon the slightly rarer but still prominent Distaff Counterpart: Even The Girls Want Her.
Mostly an anime trope (especially in Girls Love works), the "her" in question is often an aloof-seeming, athletic high school student who is pursued by every sports club in school, and has the guys crooning "So hot!" as she goes past, and the girls squealing "So cool!" as she goes past (none of these are a hard-and-fast requirement, but most of the examples will pick and choose at least one or two items off the "menu" of aloofness, athletic ability, and "cool" beauty). She will often get chocolates from other girls on Valentine's Day (which is Serious Business in Japan).
This illustrates the major difference between the gender versions of this trope. The male "admirers" in the case of Even the Guys Want Him often mingle equal amounts jealousy, anger, or frustration into their admiration, often due to Stupid Sexy Flanders. But perhaps due to the concept of the Romantic Two-Girl Friendship, the female admirers in the case of Even The Girls Want Her rarely display any negative connotations to their admiration (or attraction). They'll follow the cool girl around like a pack of lovesick puppies, and never think twice about it. The Love Interest of said girl (be male or female) might be more likely to elicit said reactions, though, but that's a case-by-base scenario. Sometimes, though, said love interest becomes the focus of ire of the fan club as he's not worthy.
Though in some versions, there may be a bit of the Double Standard at work in why females don't seem to bother feeling bad about their crushes or attraction to other girls. In most of the western world, to a great extent a girl finding another girl attractive is "hot", while a guy finding another guy attractive is "totally gay, dude". May have something to do with female attraction being seen as more "pure" or emotionally and/or intellectually based, while of coursemen just want tojam it in.
This refers specifically to otherwise straight women and girls falling for a woman; if her admirers already liked the ladies, it doesn't count.
May overlap with Bifauxnen, Cool Big Sis, The Fashionista, Onee-sama, (sometimes) The Ojou, and Aloof Dark-Haired Girl.
If her "admirers" include much younger characters as well as both sexes, she may be a Stacy's Mom. If the character is intersex, then it becomes Everybody Wants the Hermaphrodite.
The Lobelia Academy girls instantly recognize her for what she is, and follow this trope to a hilt.
And as pictured above, the Zuka Club's Benio has this in spades. The fangirls compete for the privilege of making her lunch, and she has a tendency to flirt with them outrageously.
Motoko Kusanagi of Ghost in the Shell inspires this to some degree in canon (between multiple adaptations having three male love interests, one genderless love interest, and two girls who may or may not be her girlfriends the entire time) but is most notable for doing this to the 'fandom'. Apparently, she is so attractive that all the viewers want her, regardless of gender.
It helps that, to find a manlier character in anime, you must summon good old Captain Harlock.
Karneval: Specifically Eva to Tsukumo, as Tsukumo is the resident bishoujo.
Sakura from Onii-chan to Issho. Murakami Michi, a women's magazine employee interviewing Masashi - who looks like Sakura's mother Fumiko - informs him that, after meeting Sakura, she is not interested in men and delightedly says that Sakura is "just her type." She fawns over Sakura whenever she has an opportunity.
Ren from DearS. She has subtext with Neneko who also gropes Ren as soon as she meets her, she has subtext plus a opening-credits kiss with Miu, and then Mitsuka-sensei says to her at one point "I don't care if you're a girl, that body was made for love!" Also, she gets several fangirls at school who constantly urge her to leave Takeya and hang out with them instead.
In The Familiar of Zero, Louise had gotten kissed by girls more often than she had by boys. Not to mention the number of times she is subjected to Marshmallow Hell by some of the show's bustier characters. Also in the third season Kirche seems to have developed an intense liking for her and in the opening for the fourth season there's a part where a new purple haired girl named Janette hugs a struggling Louise close and licks her face. And in episode 2 of the fourth season Janette licks Louise on the face again and practically flirts with her calling her "cute and innocent".
Not to mention Tiffania (who has the biggest Gag Boobs out of all the girls in the series) who gains about three female admirers by the end of the third season, and before that said female admirers tended to fawn over their token princess.
Or Tabitha. Kirche really adores her and fawns over her.
Cardcaptor Sakura: Sakura has the attentions of both Syaoran and Tomoyo. She probably inherited it from her mother, who was the subject of a tremendous (unrequited) crush by Tomoyo's mother.
Not to mention Kaho, who Sakura seems to 'admire' greatly and is described as really, really pretty.
Girls Bravo: Kirie and Miharu. In the anime Kosame develops a Psycho Lesbian-type attraction towards Kirie after she fights her. Also, Hijiri has been obsessed with Miharu since childhood but after being defeated by Kirie in a fight she starts lusting after her instead. They both express their affections towards Kirie by resorting to attempted Black Comedy Rape. A number of boys in her school are also infatuated with Kirie and Miharu, especially Fukuyama. One episode showed that Kirie couldn't even walk down the street without guys crowding around her, to ask her out on a date and the like.
On one occasion Kirie lampshades this by complaining that she's akin to "catnip for lesbians".
Motoko Aoyama from Love Hina has a trio of girls who follow her around, begging for her attention, ganging up on anyone who says anything negative about her, and — on at least one occasion — being upset with her because she spends so much time in male company (since Keitaro moved in).
The eponymous Utena Tenjou of Revolutionary Girl Utena is swooned over by several members of both sexes from the very first episode — including hordes of fangirls. And she elicits these reactions whether dressed as a boy or wearing Ohtori's female uniform, as proved by the episode coming after her loss at the hands of Touga, which she tried to cope with by acting like a Yamato Nadeshiko; yes, the other girls were still seriously wet for her, perhaps even moreso than usual. Not to mention that Wakaba goes so far as to call Utena her "boyfriend" and is very affectionate towards her, or how Anthy is hinted to be in love with her.
Chigusa Sanjouin from the Utena Sega Saturn game also counts. She gets her share of fangirls squeeing over her when she appears in class, and Kozue is even seen dating her at one point.
In One Piece, Pirate Empress Boa Hancock. She is affectionately referred to as "Snake Princess" by all the Kuja amazons. She takes complete advantage of this by doing whatever the hell she pleases... even kicking small animals in her way. She even manages to use this widespread affection as a weapon. Her Devil Fruit power allows her to petrify anyone, so long as that person harbors lustful thoughts towards her. So far, the only person this hasn't worked on, regardless of age, gender, or species, is Luffy.
Earlier, after eating the Slip-Slip fruit, Alvida gained an incredibly sexy new body (made doubly incredible since she used to be a severe Gonk). Her first post-fruit appearance featured a large crowd of onlookers smitten by her beauty, including quite a few women.
Bleach: Yoruichi Shihouin is a talented, sexy, fun-loving, Bad Ass capable of getting almost anyone hot and flustered from the definitely male main character, Ichigo, to her old servant, the definitely female Captain Soi Fon. The author's colour comics also reveal other captains such as Ukitake have noticed Soi Fon's affection for her old mentor.
Soi Fon is definitely obsessed with Yoruichi and stalks her in an attempt to see her naked at one point. She also blushes heavily in regards to Yoruichi and tries to give her chocolate in the shape of a heart in one scene.
Kubo's not above drawing chapter covers that give Ship Tease between Orihime and Rukia. Orihime also receives a great deal of (unwanted) attention from Chizuru, and her relationship with Tatsuki has shades of Romantic Two-Girl Friendship at times.
When Tatsuki meets Rangiku Matsumoto, Tatsuki says she's beautiful, wonders how Ichigo knows "such a hot babe" and why Ichigo didn't introduce them sooner.
Hinagiku Katsura of Hayate the Combat Butler gets a massive pile of chocolate on Valentine's Day... the day that, in Japan, is set aside for girls to give chocolate to the boys they like. Miki remarks that it's because she's so much cooler than the boys in their school, then offers up her own chocolates.
Nishizawa admits to being slightly attracted by her in a hot springs moment.
After consistent implications of Miki's attraction to Hina, she finally gets a chapter focused on her where her affections are made much more obvious, though still unstated.
Not even Chiharu is immune. After spending the day alone with Hinagiku in Kyoto, in an unusually teasing mood no less, the two are in the baths at the inn together, where Chiharu became very dodging about just why she wore her glasses into the bath...and then proceeded to stare, blush, and lose the ability to speak coherently as she watched Hina get into the bath right in front of her.
In Potemayo, Nene uses a similar event as part of a story she's telling Guchuko, with a love-drama style segue into another girl giving Nene's friend Kyo (the athletic, cool girl) chocolate on Valentine's, and then going to ask Nene if the two of them are a couple.
Haruka Tenō of Sailor Moon seems to inspire this, with one episode of Makoto thinking she's so absolutely cool that she winds up crushing on her (despite this being after The Reveal of Haruka's real gender). When Michiru asks to dance with Mamoru, Usagi objects...until she's offered a dance with Haruka in exchange, and instantly shifts gears. After the dance, Haruka is instantly crowded by men and women alike who want to be the next person to dance with her. Meanwhile, Rei, Ami, Minako and Makoto are playing rock, paper, scissors to decide who's going to dance with her next.
Hell, in the manga Act that introduces Rei, Usagi first meets her on a bus and then decides to follow her around because she's pretty. When Rei mistakes Usagi for an evil spirit and uses one of her "Evil Spirits Begone" talismans on her and apologizes for it, Usagi thinks to herself that she can forgive anyone who's that beautiful.
Usagi herself also has this trope going on, specially in the manga. Seiya certainly crushed on her, whether as a Gender Bender or Sweet Polly Oliver. And manga!Haruka was straightforward enough to steal a kiss from her, certainly...
Ami Kawashima from Toradora!, who is something of a selfish jerk (though she mellows out later) with a very good acting ability. Her cute 'natural airhead' persona has made most of the guys admire her beauty and personality, as well as some of the girls. None of the other main characters are fooled by it, however, including the guy whom she apparently has a crush on.
Maybe Taiga too, if we consider Minori to be Bi the Way for her.
Also, in the second season, Yukari, Kurumu, and Mizore are shown to have screaming fanclubs of girls dedicated to them as well.
Also, Kokoa, Moka's half sister, is deeply in love with her vampire personality.
And now Akuha Shuzen is attracted to Moka too.
Lia de Beaumont from Le Chevalier d'Eon has won the hearts of men, women, kings, queens, and not to mention siblings.
Natsuki Kuga from Mai-HiME has both boys and girls swooning over her when she comes to class. One of the girls is Student Council President and local Ojou, Shizuru Fujino, who herself has a pool of female groupies.
By extension, so does Shizuru Viola of Mai-Otome, as Arika fangirls over her quite a bit in the early episodes, and Tomoe, well... let's just say she's got a crush. In a few of the Drama CDs related to the show, a then-Coral Natsuki pressed hard to get Shizuru as her room supervisor, so that she could eventually get to know "the real her".
Fate Testarossa of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha seems to have this going on during the second season, though it's more obvious in the manga. Not only do we see a number of girls in the class clustering around her talking about how great she is, but when Arisa gets a smile from her, she blushes and muses that it's easy to see why Nanoha likes her so much.
Nanoha might have Fate beat when it comes to this, considering the number of people she's befriended through sheer force of her personality (and laser beams). Or even those she hasn't, as Subaru demonstrates in StrikerS.
Hazuki from Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito has female characters she's never met instantly taking a liking to her, and it seems sincere even when there's also an ulterior motive. Unfortunately for them, she could be the poster child for lesbian monogamy and is by turns oblivious or downright dismissive. They're not Hatsumi; she's not interested.
Ryunnosuke of Urusei Yatsura. Yes, the female population of the school is aware that she's female and forced into Bifauxnen status by her father. They don't care — she's still hot.
Sylvie from Bubblegum Crisis. Priss takes to her instantly as either a best friend or a lesbian lover, depending on interpretation, and Nene admits that Sylvie even turns her on. Completely justified in that she is a purpose-builtSex Slave, and is thus literally hotter than humanly possible.
Akira from Kaguya Hime fits this trope to a T. Very athletic and tough, she can oscillate between a Bifauxnen and an extremely sexy and well-endowed young lady, thus getting crushes from boys, girls, and creepy older women. When she eventually goes out with Yui, a somewhat cat-like androgynous boy, her Yandere stepsister Mayu comments that they look like a gay couple. Then again, gender confusion is one of the main themes of the manga.
Hone-Onna from Hell Girl: The Cauldron of Three has female students "admire" her so much that one of them even tried to send Ichimoku Ren to hell because they were mistaken for lovers. Not withstanding all the Les Yay earlier in the series between Honne-Onna and Enma Ai.
Teletha "Tessa" Testarossa gets this reaction when she introduces herself to Kaname's high school class in Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu. All the guys go "WOOOAH!" while all the girls cry "Oh she's so cute!" with accompanying love hearts. Melissa Mao also appears to have some attraction towards Tessa.
And Melissa Mao. During her time on the submarine, Kaname thinks about how cool and sexy Mao is.
Ito, the studly heroine of W Juliet, has a mostly female Unwanted Harem.
Valkyrie and Hydra from UFO Princess Valkyrie. In the flashback to their school days, they're both shown to have very large fanclubs at the all-girl academy they attend. (The school practically goes into a meltdown of burgeoning lesbian desire when the two are cast as lovers in the annual festival play.) Valkyrie's fangirls seem to have the Cool Big Sis worship going; Hydra's are... a little more blatant:
At least one schoolgirl in Code Geass competed for Milly Ashford's kiss in one episode. Also, Euphemia who, as someone aptly stated, is lusted after by all Psycho Lesbians in Britannia. While Nina's love for Euphie was open and blatant it's been often wondered if her older sister Cornelia secretly has feelings for her as well.
Shirley Fennette was also fairly popular in this regard as well. The only one amongst the student council whom sexually harasses her is Milly Ashford due to how Milly does enjoy fondling Shirley's breasts every now & then. There is also on how Shirley did once get to kiss Lelouch but it turns out to be Sayoko in disguise.
Nagisa Misumi from Futari wa Pretty Cure, who is the star lacrosse player of the school team and regularly gets love letters from fangirls. The boys are not nearly as interested in her as are the girls, because there are much more beautiful girls in the school - and that is actually very disappointed for poor Nagisa. Enter her Romantic Two-Girl Friendship with Honoka Yukishiro, aka Ms. Smart and Gorgeous. The two girls then start to draw the attention of each other's fanclub to themselves as well.
There's also Itsuki Myoudouin from Heartcatch Precure, who has girls fall head over heels for her. Tsubomi Hanasaki does this as well, mostly because she's under the wrong presumption that she was a he. Even after she found out the truth, she's still struck with those feelings. And besides her, there is another girl in the fashion club who has seemingly a crush to Itsuki. And then, there are a lots of other girls.
Up to Eleven with Mana Aida from Doki Doki Pretty Cure, who seems to not having that many fangirls like the former ones above, but the other main characters adore her. Rikka Ishikawa becoming jealous to Makoto Kenzaki, who is the fangirl-target of Mana and gets closer to her, is the focus of Episode 10. And then, there is Regina who suddenly befriends Mana, undergoing a Heel-Face Turn because of her and saying that she loves her ("Mana daisuki").
Mentioned above, Makoto Kenzaki has also many fangirls, including Mana herself.
Reiri from Kaibutsu Oujo falls under this while at school. She welcomes this reaction, as it gives her quite a supply of very willing blood donors.
All the girls swoon over Najica at both of her jobs. She's like their mutual Cool Big Sis. She also ran into an heiress type on one mission and found out later that the girl had become infatuated with her. Najica wisely declined her offer of a bodyguard job, hearing the implied " wink wink, nudge nudge".
Sae of Hidamari Sketch: If we go by the anime, she had received Valentines' chocolates from girls when she was in junior high.
Pokémon surprisingly has this with the episode "Mandarin Island Miss Match" in which Misty is very much a fangirl for Lorelei/Prima.
Elesa has a great deal of fan girls cheering for her in her Gym battle with Ash. It helps the fact that she is a model.
Pike Queen Lucy has an all-female group of deliquent schoolgirls who adore her.
Persona 4 has Naoto. After she returns to school post-kidnapping and her secret comes out, she still gets love letters from girls left in her shoebox. She also wins the beauty pageant in part because she overwhelmingly wins the female vote.
Miwako Sakurada from Paradise Kiss is apparently so cute that even the girls want her. At least, pretty obviously heterosexual Yukari "Caroline" Hayasaka thinks she is "so cute, even I would kiss her" as if it were the most natural thing in the world.
Yukari herself also invokes the trope. Almost every person that meets her or gets a good glimpse of her face, describes her as "cute" or "beautiful". Also, Miwako is apparently heterosexual, but that doesn't stop her from fawning over Yukari's beauty and touching her boobs when she's taking her measurements.
Kiri from the manga Never Give Uplooks like a male model, acts like a prince when telling her fangirls that she isn't gay, and has a very effeminate love interest. However, she wears the school's female uniform, regularly acts very much like a high school girl, and will often yell "I AM A GIRL!" when provoked (or strongly lusted over). Doesn't change the fact that half the school's female population has enormous crushes on her.
Mio from K-On! has this effect on girls, both outside of the music club as within. Although we aren't told at first her fanclub is this at first (it's only implied that the school is girls only), the second season makes it clearly a case.
Everyone, regardless of sex, species, or relation, wants Hazumu.
Hazumu also has the love of a (female) spaceship.
In Powerpuff Girls Z, tomboy Kaoru's first appearance is that of her escaping in a badass manner from hordes of what seems to be most of the female population in her school.
Although it's not a major plot point, it's commented that Hikaru from Magic Knight Rayearth has a lot of other girls at her school interested in her in the manga's opening. Some of the girls in the series proper seem pretty interested in her, too.
Lady Oscar from Rose of Versailles is one of the first anime to introduce this. Rosalie is pretty much in love with her, and the ladies in court comment right in front of her how handsome and dashing she is, and that they wish there were men like her. Plus, when Marie Antoinette first meets Oscar, she mistakes her for a man, and states she prefers Oscar over her betrothed (who's a painfully shy, pudgy prince who likes locksmithing more than his bride).
Natsuru Senou of Kämpfer is a case of this in the third episode. Mostly this is exaggerated during the episode when he is transferred over to the girls side and the episode where they prepare for the beauty contest, but some after, she is barraged by girls in her class who want to get together with her. Kaede Sakura continually wants to date her, and subsequently hates him as a male.
Matsuri Yagumo from Psyren. Sakurako has an obsessive infatuation with her.
Yumi Fukuzawa from Maria-sama Ga Miteru manages to outshine most of the other popular girls in this regard during the course of the series—even Sachiko. Sure, the setting evokes this trope, but the amount of girls standing in line to become Yumi's "soeur" is nothing short of amazing, considering how she started out.
Well, she shifts focus to girls her age when she grows older—much to the dismay of the other two Children.
Misaki Ayuzawa of Maid-Sama! is shown to have the respect of the girls within her sphere of influence, but it becomes this trope when the Maid Cafe she works at has a Ladies Day, featuring the staff in Bifauxnen mode, all of the girls instantly fall for her.
If you're a girl in Blood+, you may find yourself compelled to crawl into bed with SayaOtonashi...
Esther Blanchett from Trinity Blood gets men and women smitten with her. She also shows degrees of attraction to both genders.
Kurumi of Steel Angel Kurumi. Saki longs for Kurumi but Kurumi is hopelessly devoted to Nakahito.
Nako, Uruka, and Kurumi (again) from Steel Angel Kurumi 2. Nako has Karinka, Kurumi, and her best friend Uruka in love with her. Kurumi has Saki in love with both her and Uruka. And in episode 4 Kurumi gets legions of fangirls at her school.
Also, Vorona. Mairu definitely wants a piece of her.
Maylene from Black Butler is subject to some blatant Les Yay when Nina Hopkins is around (which includes Nina kissing her and openly groping her breasts and thighs with some heavy breathing sound effects and hearts).
Also Angelina "Madame Red" Durless. Grell, a male to female transsexual, was in love with her before she killed her.
Kazumi Amano from GunBuster is one of the all time reps of this trope. She's the star student (and pilot candidate) at her high school (an all-girls school yet), she defends those in need, she gives advice to her juniors, and everyone just knows she's going to be picked for the big space mission so they actually fight duels over who gets to go with her. In the last episode, all the students at her old school (where she had been teaching) cry over her leaving.
Vampire Knight: If dealing with her Male Harem wasn't already hard enough, Yuuki Kuran has to deal with Les Yay from Shizuka.
Yori basically describes her "ideal person" as a mix between Yuuki and Zero.
Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun: Reika. Ryoko really enjoys molesting Reika and dragging her off, despite Reika's protests that she doesn't swing that way. This is also played with in regards to Shinobu, a maid of Reika's, who greatly adores Reika and thinks Shungo is not worthy of Reika, and is always trying to "execute" him.
Also, Mayu. One of Hinako's favorite hobbies, other than sexually harassing Shungo, appears to be skinship groping Mayu.
Shizuma from Strawberry Panic!. She has hordes of fangirls and Nagisa falls in love with her eventually. Also, Nagisa. Chiyo, Shizuma, and Tamao are all in love with her. Hikari too. Yaya is in love with her and so is Amane. And Amane as she has fangirls and Hikari is also in love with her.
Maki of Airmaster. Because every other character, including a couple of girls, seem to be chasing after her.
Venus Versus Virus: Lucia. It's all but outright stated that Sumire is in love with Lucia.
Kim Diehl from Soul Eater. Jacqueline has a crush on her.
Erza Scarlett from Fairy Tail has hoards of men and Lucy swooning when they see her in action. Also, Lucy. She has tons of Les Yay with other girls and in the anime, Levy wouldn't mind seeing her butt. Mirajane is said to have captured the hearts of men and woman across the land, and Lucy openly drools over her bikini magazine photos
Tohru Honda of Fruits Basket. Hanajima Saki's and Arisa Uotani's affections for her seem to go much deeper than simple sisterly friendship.
Konoe of Hanaukyō Maid Tai. While Konoe sees her as a pupil, Yashima herself is hopelessly and rather blatantly in love with Konoe. This often has her daydreaming up various lesbian fantasies with Konoe returning her feelings...resulting in rather embarrassing moments.
According to Sealand and Latvia desktop mascots, Belarus has written in her journal that she spent 3 hours massaging Ukraine's breasts. This implies even Ukraine's sister, who has a Single-Target SexualitytowardsRussia, wants her.
Ayaka Hatori of D.N.Angel in Daisuke's school in episode 7. She has tons of fangirls who blush and wear looks of great admiration in her presence.
Torako from Hyakko. From how it looks in episode 10, a lot of people have Les Yay towards her.
Kirika from Noir. Later in the series, Chloe makes it very clear she seeks a lesbian relationship with her.
Bungaku Shoujo: Tohko. The second book confirms that Maki has feelings towards Tohko.
Strawberry Shake Sweet: Saeki seems to attract a fair share of unwanted female attention. She's also very popular among the manga's female fandom.
The main plot behind episode 6 of Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, which sees the title heroine romantically pursued by several female students while posing as a teacher. Also specifically mentioned in episode 2, by Cicciolina.
Midori from Tamako Market, who has received valentines from both genders.
Tamako herself falls into a Love Triangle, when is crushed on by Mochizou (a boy) and the aforementioned Midori, a girl.
Ayane of Witch Craft Works is the tall, cool type, constantly surrounded by a huge female fan club. So when she decides to stop guarding Takamiya from the shadows and spend the day by his side, he is instantly hated.
A lot of classmates have crushes on Maki, saying she is kind and beautiful like a princess.
A lot of classmates have crushes on Riko, because she's a tomboy who kicks a lot of ass, and she's saved a few of them.
In the first issue of Love and Capes, the heroine, Abby, is shocked to find that her boyfriend, Superman-expy Mark, used to date Wonder Woman-expy Amazonia. She's brooding about it when her sister Charlotte walks in and asks what the matter is. At first, Charlotte doesn't see that there's much of a problem — Mark loves Abby — until she learns that the ex in question is Amazonia.
Charlotte: Whoa! Heck, I'd do her. Abby (whisper): Me too...
Played with rather well (and humorously) in Gotham Central. When Starfire comes to the GCPD to help clear up some issues with Robin (A body has been found in his outfit, but the police are unsure if it is authentic or a costume) every man stares at her slack-jawed, eliciting a disgusted "men" from Detective Romy Chandler. However, Detective Joely Bartlett smirks and points to the two gay women in the department who are also staring with the exact same expression, just as unable to control themselves as the men. Man or woman, if somebody is that attractive and fits your orientation, it is bringing something out of you.
Ramba seems to have no problem persuading previously straight women that they want to have sex with her.
Radiance from the All-New Invaders. While describing how popular Ryoko is in Japan, the Human Torch states that she has legions of teenage fans who want to date her. According to him, this includes both young men and young women.
Ramona V. Flowers from Scott Pilgrim. Her 4th evil ex is Roxie Ritcher. Besides that, Kim said (joking or not) that she loved both Scott and Ramona, and that she wanted to be like Ramona.
Fantasia Faust from Ironwood, although in her case it's a speccific magical effect that is built into her.
Wonder Woman #600 features the title character hanging out with a diverse group of young heroines who just helped her fight some robots. Most of the girls talk about how gorgeous and amazing Wonder Woman is, and Batwoman even unsuccessfully tries to ask her out.
An earlier issue from Greg Rucka's run showed Wonder Woman at a signing for her new book. Most of the audience members (male and female alike) tried to ask if she was looking for a boyfriend or girlfriend.
Ego from Little Ego, at least in her dreams. Everyone she meets in her Dream Land, male or female, is unable to keep their hands off her.
Kate: Am I the only person on the team who's straight?
Ms America: Princess. I've seen the way you look at me. You're not that straight.
The Mission Stays The Same Quite a few asari start following or hitting on Maeteris during her trip to Illium. As an Eldar, not only does she reject their advances, she finds it annoying and degrading.
Also happens to Shepard when infiltrating Hock's mansion; because of Maeteris' skill with makeup, every single person there can't help but stare at Shepard, and she notices several asari present that are ready to jump her at any given moment.
Bridget Jones in the second film learns she has a female admirer in the form of the work colleague of Mark Darcy, that she was so suspicious and insecure about.
In Beethoven, Ryce comments on the "perfection" of a girl she believes to be her crush's girlfriend.
Regina George from Mean Girls. Later on, Cady starts to have this kind of appeal as well.
Darla from Just Friends. Samantha James, who's bisexual kisses her on the lips in one scene and later states that she likes girls, meaning Darla.
At the start of the movie Biker Boyz two women seem to invoke this trope in a third one, alltough it would seem that the woman chiming in alongside the boys with a "damn" of her own really is lesbian and probably would be interested in the women even if they weren't as hot as they are portrayed.
In the first Female Prisoner Scorpion film, when Matsu gets thrown into solitary but an unfamiliar prisoner who can't stop asking questions is also put in her cell, she is suspicious - so she seduces the new inmate. Turns out she's a guard after all, and she ends up in the warden's office, being stripped by the other guards to reveal she's covered in lovebites and begging to be let back into the cell 'to try again'.
Jessica Rabbit of Who Framed Roger Rabbit is so sexy and gorgeous that she has a ton of female fans that have said they would switch teams for her.
Lots of women deeply empathize with Frollo for lusting over Esmeralda.
Sgt. Tamora Jean Calhoun from Wreck-It Ralph has also picked up a rather solid female fanbase as well.
China Sorrows from Skulduggery Pleasant makes everyone fall in love with her at first sight, male and female alike.
The Lady of the Green Kirtle in The Silver Chair. She's described as very beautiful and charismatic, and before she learnt who she truly was, Jill Pole was pretty much goo-gaa over her.
D.L. Chastain, "lady asskicker", in Thomas Pynchon's Vineland.
In Chronicles of the Kencyrath, the heroine Jamie acquires a temporary version of this when she works her people's supernatural karate-oid moves into a dance routine, performed for the benefit of the tavern that took her in when she was a shellshocked waif.
In the Dresden Files novels, female White Court vampires such as Lara Raith are certainly this. White Court vampires feed on sexual energy, and they are not choosy about the gender of their meals.
In the WW2 novel "Spitfire Girls" (by Carol Gould) Valerie Cobb, famous aviatrix and commanding officer of the women ferry pilots, is described in lovestruck terms by all of them. In this case of her best friend this attraction has a definite sapphic edge — unfortunately Cobb has fallen in love with a man instead.
The title character of Friday by Robert A. Heinlein, an Artificial Human created as a corporate prostitute (but who at book's opening is more of a military courier for hire), is invariably asked for kisses by the various women she meets.

Pippa from the Gemma Doyle trilogy. Felicity is in love with her.
Jacky Faber of the Bloody Jack series. Mam'selle Claudelle de Bourbon and Cheng Shih certainly want her. Also, following her Fake-Out Make-Out with Jacky, Clarissa seems to have liked it.
Eldest Whistler in A Brother's Price. Ren is interested in her little brother but is struck with admiration for Eldest, though it seems more to be for the natural command she has over her family and the idea that if Jerin grows up some more to look like that, wow.
Live Action TV
In Power Rangers Mystic Force, vampire queen Necrolai reveals her human form for the first time, and Xander openly says she's hot. The other Rangers instantly agree, with the loudest and most enthusiastic being Vida, the Pink Ranger. Of course, Vida's fit the lesbian stereotype pretty well from day one. Not to mention the fact that she was once under Necrolai's Mind Control.
When Julie Keaton (played by Heather Locklear) is introduced in Scrubs all the guys treat her as the hottest girl in the hospital with an emphatic "Damn!", but when Carla says it as well, Turk and J.D. look at her in surprise. When Carla says "What? She's hot." J.D. responds with "No, that's hot."
Another episode of Scrubs has a female intern sarcastically ask Elliot if she could get the same preferential treatment as Keith (Elliot's boyfriend). Elliot replies "The only woman in this hospital that I would even consider sleeping with is Jamie in pediatrics" at the thought of which, she, and all the female interns, look into the distance and sigh.
The female fan club for Ziva on NCIS has reached truly epic proportions. Same for Kate on Castle- the girls want them just as much as the guys do.
In the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 5 episode "Crush," Drusilla comes back to Spike. Harmony, his new hench-wench, says this about it:
Harmony: I told you: I don't do threesomes unless they're boy-boy-girl. Or Charlize Theron.
Straight women seem to instantly become bisexual for Shane McCutcheon in The L Word. In one episode, she attended a wedding where she was sleeping with both of the bridesmaids, and the mother of the bride. Even the bride herself kissed her, but Shane managed to control herself and did not let the encounter go further than that. Even Shane has standards.
A Will and Grace episode had Jack Karen infiltrate a self-help group of homosexuals trying to go "straight". Karen tries to bait the lesbians by telling them about her fantasy; her and Angelina Jolie on a Harley.
Seen on 30 Rock when Jack's fiancee Elisa claims to have a terrible secret.
Liz: Are you a man? Elisa: Really? That's your guess? Do you want to see me naked? Liz: Sorta.
Seen even earlier with Elisa in the episode "Generalissimo":
Jack: Look, you should know I'm doing this for a woman...*shows a picture of Elisa*...this woman.
Hector Moreda: Wow. I am super-gay and I would totally switch for her.
Also with Liz herself. In the third episode, her lesbian friend Gretchen (who is, incidentally, Alex frickin' Cabot, a major source of this trope on her own show) has to work up the willpower to stop seeing her. Also, in Into the Crevasse, Jenna seems to enjoy watching two porn actresses representing herself and Liz make out.
How I Met Your Mother has a moment with Lily, who once told Marshall in reference to a hot female bartender (doubles as a CMOF):
Lily: Baby, how can you not want to hit that? I want to hit that! I'm sorry, but if you're not into her...you might be gay.
Marshall: Yeah...gay for you!
More commonly, Lily has dropped hints throughout the series that she has a crush on the smoking hot Robin.
iCarly: Shelby, through Carly. Sam seemed to get this reaction from Valerie as well.
Missy, Sam, and Shelby, all show signs of being attracted to Carly as more than just friends.
Roseanne: When Roseanne decides to hire Traci Lord's character as a waitress, she tells Jackie she'll bring in more customers. "She's so hot she even gives me a woody."
At one point in season one of Smallville one guy tells another that liking Lana is unoriginal, he being at least the forth guy who has expressed interest in her. In season two Tina Greer realized that she was in love with Lana so she decided to take the place of Lana's boyfriend.
Glee: Quinn. Rachel's obsession with Quinn and her constant harping on how Quinn is the prettiest girl she's ever met has long crossed the point of creepiness. She's one step away from kidnapping the lady.
In an episode of My Hero George's shapely arranged bride comes to Earth. Mrs. Raven declares "I'm straight, and even I fancy her!"
In one episode of Friends, Monica's cousin comes to visit and it turns out she's so physically attractive, she catches the eyes of Chandler, Ross...and Phoebe. Then again, if any member of the cast turned out to be bisexual, it'd most likely be Phoebe...
The bulk of "If U Seek Amy," appears to be built around this trope: "All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy..." note F.U.C.K.Me
"I Kissed a Girl" by Katy Perry more or less invokes this trope. "Us girls we are so magical/Soft skin, red lips, so kissable..." (the lips in question supposedly belonged to Scarlett Johansson - all in Katy's imagination, though)
WWE SmackDown!: Torrie Wilson. First, in December 2002, Dawn Marie, who was engaged to Torrie's father Al, guilted her into a makeout session at a hotel room which appeared on the WWE Armageddon 2002 PPV on December 15. At the March 13, 2003 Girls Gone Wild PPV, Stacy Keibler, Torrie's long-time friend/rival both on television and off , did a body shot from Torrie's cleavage (she was wearing a bikini at the time). Then, after a nearly four-year exile due to a lawsuit partially inspired by her having previously refused to do a lesbian angle, Sablereturned on the April 3, 2003 (taped April 1) episode, while Torrie was presenting the cover to her Playboy issue, and kissed Torrie. This led to Sable playing mind games with Torrie, leaving her split between seeking Sable's approval and beating her up, and each one attempting to one-up the other in sexiness. This was scrapped when Stephanie McMahonbooked herself into a feud with Sable, leaving Torrie to become the new valet for Billy Gunn, in yet another attempt to get him over as anything other than the guy who finished the New Age Outlaws' intro. At the Vengeance PPV on July 27, as part of an on-going "Indecent Proposal" storyline, male wrestler Jamie Noble defeated Billy Gunn, thus giving Noble the right to "sleep" with Torrie on the next episode of SmackDown. During the skit when it was supposed to happen, Noble suggested a threesome with his girlfriend/valet Nidia. This led to a Played for Laughs scene with Noble, Torrie, Nidia and Gunn all in bed together.
In Super Robot Wars Alpha, Sleigh Presty has TONS of Les Yay with most of the female cast she interacts with, especially Selena Recital from Alpha 3, and she actually worries about this because she knows and is attracted to women, and they to her, and she's worried she'll never find a man. It doesn't help she has Well Done Sister complex in regards to her brother Filio, whom she doesn't desire sexually but does consider to be the yardstick she measures a man worthy enough to court her by. And, give how bishounen and in touch with his feminine side he is (in Super Robot Wars Original Generation, it's revealed he's a fan of ballet and even made the ultragirly Fairlions), this REALLY doesn't help her case.
It also dosen't help that she sort of lost it when her brother was killed by Ibis in a training accident.
In Ylisse, all the young women are seriously wet for Chrom's childhood friend/potential bride and female cavalier Sully since they think she's cooler than most men. It's even in her profile and her single ending!
Profile: "Ylissean women admire her strength and call her "The Woman to End All Men."
Solo ending: "Her dashing figure and significant skills made her a hero to women everywhere."
Not to mention, in the Harvest Scramble Sumia is pretty much drooling at the prospect of roping Sully into a crossdressing pageant.
Must be hereditary, since Sully's daughter Kjelle is implied to get similar reactions from Ylissean girls too - love letters included! Not to mention, Severa is... distractedby Kjelle's nice abs.
If the Scrambles are to be believed, Severa might have the potential to evoke this. So you thought Kjelle was drunk when she found Severa attractive? She actually was on a Truth Serum.
Cynthia is a milder example. Her supports with Inigo have her getting gifts from some girls; Inigo complains about it and guesses it must be because of her "dashing heroine" image.
In Final Fantasy VIII, Quistis Trepe has her own fanclub. It contains numerous women who gush over her beauty just as freely as the boys.
Bifauxnen Makoto Kikuchi of THE iDOLM@STER is subject to this in her all-girl school, to the point that she becomes an Idol Singer to create a more feminine image for herself and ward off female suitors. It backfires.
Carries over into the anime. During her photo shoot in the second episode, Makoto steps up and gives her most brilliant smile, and completely KO's the male photographer... 's female assistant.
In Metal Gear Solid 3, EVA seems a bit too admiring when it comes to The Boss. If the player knocks her out, they can hear her moan "Boss~" in her sleep. Not to mention that even when an extremely powerful Chinese branch of the Philosophers orders her to kill Naked Snake after she takes the Philosopher's Legacy from him, she doesn't. Why? Because The Boss told her not to.
From Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, Shanoa gets some... interesting dialogue from a number of characters, mainly Laura the jeweler and Monica the seamstress. And then there are the Werebat and Lilith monsters asking to "Let's play, cute little kitty!"
That's even getting close to the things she hears from some supposedly asexual creatures... in fact, let's jus say EVERYTHING wants her
Castlevania Judgment shows that even little girls can't resist her. "Just 'cause you're HOT doesn't mean you can be rude!"
The potential for this exists in Mass Effect, if you play a female Shepard; Blue-Skinned Space Babe Liara (and yes, she's a woman, more or less) is absolutely fascinated with Shepard for various reasons, and this becomes a romantic interest... regardless of the PC's gender. You have the option to tell her to buzz off, however. And if you pick some of the more Paragon-ish background options, a lot of people will be extremely impressed with fem-Shepard... including a fair number of other women.
It should be noted that the Asari don't have a concept of gender at all, so this isn't a case of fem-Shepard's attractiveness crossing the gender barrier; all asari are bisexual anyway.
Asari are also implied to be attractive to anyone; regardless of their gender, species, or sexual orientation; making them all examples of this trope. Demonstrated best by the salarians, who are all normally asexual and treat "reproduction negotiations" much like a business arrangement... except when it comes to the asari.
In Ōkami, Rao's Gag Boobs are so amazing that even God herself can't help but be distracted by them.
Ar tonelico: Lady Cloche has an entirely female fanclub, 100 members strong, some of whom joined after "having naughty thoughts of Lady Cloche."
The female Grey Warden of Dragon Age: Origins will attract not only two male members of the party and a bisexual woman, but also a number of other female minor characters who include both humans and elves. A female human noble can sleep with another woman in the prologue without so much as a Persuade check...
In the GBA game SwordCraft Story, you can choose to play as a girl (Pratty). The game's romantic interests will not be affected much by this, even if most of them are also girls. Most explicitly, if you get Sugar as your spiritual sidekick, she will insist throughout the game on getting married to Pratty.
Dia in Luminous Arc 2 has quite a notable fanbase from her students, even prompting non-Light users to sneak into her lectures, despite the information being useless to them.
Elesa has the same deal as Cynthia. Many male and female fans alike simply adore her, even in universe where she has both female and male fans cheering for her in her catwalk designed Gym in Pokemon Black and White 2.
Noel Vermillion of BlazBlue. Litchi Faye Ling dresses her up in cute outfits in one of her endings, and her childhood friend Makoto Nanaya is very protective of her. There's also a lot of Noel X Rachel art, and much of it is official. There are even a few female dustloop.com members that like her. Litchi herself gets fawned over quite regularly by Taokaka, though popular opinion is that she's simply too young to know any better, and Noel's friends Tsubaki and Mai also get a fair amount of attention from the aforementioned Makoto (who's quite strongy suggested to be bi).
While the Duchess in Embric of Wulfhammer's Castle is technically Even The Guys Want Her, as she receives more female attention than male, it remains that all but a handful of characters greatly admire her, and all but a handful of those want to get in her dress. It's rather depressing when considering the Final End.
Kyou Fujibayashi in CLANNAD is revealed to get a number of love letters from girls, while guys seem to find her scary. Apparently it's fairly embarrassing for her and she tries to cover up by saying that uh... maybe some of the letters are asking for advice! before ripping them to shreds.
In the anime adaptation, Tomoyo comments that she receives many gifts from girls.
In Katawa Shoujo, Lilly says she has received many love confessions in the past. Before she cane to Yamaku, she attended an all-girls Catholic school, thus making it likely that most, if not all, of the confessors were female. She also has a fair amount of Les Yay with her best friend Hanako.
Female Variant #5 in El Goonish Shive is an example of this trope. For the first 48 hours after being zapped, the target emits super-pheromones that make her attractive to everyone except blood relatives. Male Variant #5 was explained in a Q&A strip.
Ménage ŕ 3's DiDi causes straight girls, as well as open bisexuals like Zii and Yuki, to react quite dramatically. Gay men certainly notice her, too. Peggy eventually makes the point completely explicit: "I guess I could fall on a one or a two on the Kinsey Scale. But I mean, look at you! You can easily make any girl into a three!"
In Red String, Maya has a huge female fan club that all act like they're fawning over a cute boy. Fuuko even falls completely in love with her as part of her coming out story.
Skin Horse has refugee from The Seventiesnote or so she acts; she was born in the 1980s Tigerlilly Jones, who is so Funkadelic that she makes even the heterosexual Heroic Sociopath Unity feel funny "down there."
An early page of The Blonde Marvel has a mugger admonish the "New", skinny Blonde Marvel, admitting he used to get in touch with himself to pictures of her ample assets. The woman he's currently mugging admits she did the same thing.
Sal in Dumbing of Age appears to be this. Both male and female characters frequently comment on how attractive and all-around amazing she is.
Billie is either an example of this, or meets an inordinately high number of gay or bisexual girls. She has been kissed by Ruth, almost kissed by Daisy, and Joyce has shown an uncharacteristic interest in "getting lost" in her breasts.
Dabbler, in Grrl Power, definitely has this effect; women looking at her all start thinking "Not a lesbian. Not a lesbian. Not a lesbian." However, with her it's an explicitly supernatural effect; she's part-succubus, and generates an aura of sexual fascination. Her team leader has to tell her to dial it back periodically; Dabbler finds the results amusing.
In Ilivais X, the list of girls who HAVEN'T shown interest in Mille are [Lau and Electra (who've never even seen her), Alice (who's devoted to Locke anyway), and Dia. Granted, this is a universe in which humans are basically sterile and reproduction is done artificially, so sexuality doesn't matter, but there is still an inherent, albeit weakened gender barrier. Mille still expresses her surprise at being able to shatter it so easily and suddenly.
In Greek Ninja, crazed succubus Dolores confesses her undying love for Sasha — the reincarnated form of her ex-lover Eli. Although it's Eli she's actually after, she doesn't seem to mind the fact Sasha is a girl and even locks lips with her later.
A season four episode of KaBlam! had a scene involving a group of female fans of June that were so obsessed with her, they even dressed like her, did their hair like her, and yes, were as hot-tempered as her.
Archer features Ms. Fanservice Lana: when she started selling sex to her collegues to get back at Cyril, first up was Pam. Later on, Cyril spots Ray in the queue and when he asks him about it, he replies "Honey, please. Nobody's that gay."
American Dad!. Francine Smith. The Smiths' neighbor, Linda Memari, is in love with her.
In Making Fiends, Vendetta seems to get some attention from other girls.Charlotte is convinced that Vendetta is her best friend, reaching obsessive, stalker-like levels. Charlotte has also complimented Vendetta's looks. In a TV episode, Vendetta had to temporarily leave her house and stayed with Marion, who she pretended to be close friends with to spite Charlotte. This not only made Charlottesad, but also caused Marion to feel horrible when Vendetta said she meant nothing to her, not to mention Marion temporarily turned evil from Vendetta's influence. In the web episodes, there was Rubella, a fiend made to replace Vendetta's former bodyguard, Grudge. When Vendetta thinks she has killed Charlotte off, she and Rubella go off to torture the town residents with fiends. Rubella feels so close to Vendetta, she buys her a musical toy bear that looks like something you'd give out Valentine's Day. Too bad Rubella didn't know Vendetta was melophobic...
Played straight with Queen Bee in Young Justice. Batman mentions that she possesses the power to seduce and brainwash most men "and some women."
