Memetic Sex God

The hero of teenage boys everywhere.

"It's the power of David Bowie's Area that, even through a recording, even in a family friendly movie, it can reach out and completely burn your virginity from the fabric of space and time."
Sarrolyne on the power of David Bowie's Area, Metaquotes

The less Squick-inducing cousin to the Memetic Molester, this is a character who, in fandom's eyes, possesses extraordinary prowess in both scoring and then giving sexual pleasure to his/her partner(s). This character may be The Casanova, a Chivalrous Pervert, a Femme Fatale, a Casanova Wannabe or a Kavorka Man (or maybe even a Chaste Hero) in-canon, but in the wilds of fandom, the character's The Pornomancer.

The distinction between this and Memetic Molester is that while the Memetic Molester will lay anyone whether they want it or not, this is the character to whom everyone, no exceptions, willingly submits.

  • "Norio Wakamoto can make a woman orgasm from just his voice alone" - Anonymous.
  • Ai no Kusabi's Iason Mink inspires orgasms by simply existing. And if he's being voiced by seiyuu Kaneto Shiozawa, you WILL lose your virginity.
    • Iason can undress you with his eyes.
  • Axis Powers Hetalia: All want to become one with Russia, especially if you're Belarus.
  • Sebastian of Black Butler. In canon he's shown to be attractive to guys and plenty of girls. In the fandom its decided that if you don't have a thing for Sebastian you don't have a pulse. Also, Ciel is often the target of harassment and kidnapping due to his girly looks.
  • Bleach has many:
    • The most prominent is Orihime, a Moe Ms. Fanservice, who got Rangiku to hug her while naked, in addition to the other girls who want her.
    • Rangiku herself qualifies, with the scene above and that she is confirmed to have the largest breasts of the female characters in Bleach, no small feat.
    • Being a Launcher of a Thousand Ships in an extensive cast full of single people, Ichigo Kurosaki is sometimes treated this way. Though factoring in his canon shyness, it might be more accurate to say that he's less a memetic sex god and more a memetic sex object.
      • Ichigo's Canon Shyness might be more debatable since when Rangiku (way back when in the beginning of the Arrancar Invasion Arc) attempts to win him over by both lifting up her skirt and unbuttoning her shirt, she fails. The big twist here is that Ichigo, despite his passionate rebuttal of her *ahem* advances, was peeking through his fingers (he was covering his face with his hands) to look at her. This was something that even Rukia pointed out, though at the end of the day Rangiku bunked with Orihime.
  • Even the guys want Allen, Tyki, and Kanda of D.Gray-Man. Because they're just that pretty.
  • We have Hei from Darker Than Black who is so attractive he has no less than six women wanting him (even one which is supposed to be emotionless). Must be the collar bones.
  • Doki Doki Pretty Cure: The main character Mana Aida aka Cure Heart. She has a harem with six characters, including The Dragon. Mana has also the most and stronger Les Yay moments with different characters than any other Pretty Cure. Just look the Les Yay page.
  • Hestia from Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? went from 0 to sex god once the anime adaption began airing, with her breast-uplifting string becoming her signature accessory.
  • Durarara!! gives us Heiwajima Shizuo. Even cursed katanas want him.
  • From Fairy Tail, we get a lot of hot mages, including Lucy, Erza, and Cana. For the women (and some men), there's Gray.
    • In Hiro Mashima's other series Rave Master, Belnika, Resha Valentine, and Julia.
  • Full Metal Panic!: Everyone, and I mean everyone, wants to do Sousuke. Ever since he was 5 years old. Oh, and he doesn't even need to wiggle his eyebrows to make them want to jump him.
  • For a franchise that has its roots in Bishoujo Eroge, Fate/stay night and its various spinoffs has a surprising amount of male examples of this trope. The most famous ones include (but are not limited to):
  • Ghost Talkers Daydream: In-universe, Misaki Saiki is sex on legs. She has a body to die for, is the most frequently requested Dom at the Roppongi S&M Club, and is such a sex bomb that a magazine company asked her to offer a pair of her panties as the first place prize for one of their contests!
  • Gintama: For all his quirks, Gintoki Sakata is really popular with the ladies, especially in the marriage and Valentine polls where he's usually around the top or even 1st!
  • Girls Bravo: Kirie Kojima is another in-universe example. To say she's only 16, she's already stacked and has a killer bod, to the point where she can't even walk down the street without being mobbed by middle-aged men asking her out; much to her chagrin. Fukuyama gropes her and pulls up her skirt at every opportunity, not caring that she flattens him for it. And she's even garnered two full-blown lesbian crushes between Kosame and Hijiri, both of whom want to get into Kirie's pants. Kosame is the most persistent and the one who comes closest to actually getting her in the sac. She even managed to steal Kirie's First Kiss.
  • Gundam Wing: In fanfiction, Hilde is usually portrayed as being so kinky and desirable, that each of the Gundam pilots and even Zechs all want to get her in the sack. And if you think we're kidding, simply go to Fanfiction.net, choose Hilde as the first character, then select any of the pilots (or Zechs) as the second and see just how many hits you'll get - with more than half of 'em being M-rated.
  • Gundam 00 has two:
  • If this tumblr post is any indication, there's a decent amount of Heat Guy J fans who consider Clair Leonelli to be this.
  • Dio Brando from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is this, both in the fandom and in-universe.
    • Thanks to the posing, macho swaggar, provocative clothing, and just being a stateside Ensemble Darkhorse in general, Joseph has found a position right next to him.
    • Noriaki Kakyoin wants Jotaro's mom. He wants your mom. He wants all moms. explanation 
  • Katekyo Hitman Reborn!: Everyone wants Tsuna to be their Uke and his numerous guardians/friends to be their Seme.
  • K-On!: Mio, Yui and Azu-nyan are the top three most wanted Valentines also most wanted wives too.
  • Macross Frontier: Sheryl Nome, what with her hordes of rabid fans and being stalked by almost every man in High School, the fandom is under the impression that she could quite easily get laid if she so chose. She's just not interested in womanizers. Further cemented when she finally does get laid by the guy who was least impressed by her.
  • Negi Springfield from Mahou Sensei Negima!. He's only ten years old, and everybody still wants him, including the Psycho Lesbian.
    • Evangeline McDowell can turn anybody into a lolicon. And that's not even counting her Sexier Alter Ego, either her original one or the one she uses in the Stealth Sequel.
  • Usui Takumi of Maid-Sama! everybody wants him to the point that straight guys admitted that they wanted to kiss him.
  • If you're not creeped out by Mirai Nikki's Yuno Gasai, you're wanting her after your ass.
  • Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam: Paptimus Scirocco, who seduces battle-hardened female pilots over to his side with a single glance. This is not even an exaggeration - he does this canonically.
  • It's practically guaranteed that you will swoon when you see Kakashi without his mask.
    • Naruto's new Bishōnen appearance in Part II and numerous Shirtless Scenes will have you frothing at the mouth.
    • Sasuke's always been bishie and despite his haters he has tons of fan girls who consider him a sex god. It helps that a large portion of the cast wants him for one reason or another.
    • The sight of the older, matured, Bishounen Gaara when introduced in part two will make you hold your breath; strongly wish he was real so you could take him home and not share him with anyone.
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion: Among their fans, Shinji Ikari, Rei Ayanami (who does become an actual goddess) and Mari Illustrious Makinami. Shinji gets paired with everybody and their mother (including a certain clone of his own mom), and Mari (somewhat like Izaya above) crosses over into Memetic Molester at times.
  • One Piece: Boa Hancock. It's Canon.
    • Even if he's asexuality personified, Monkey D. Luffy can make fangirls in-universe and in fandom drool. Since he has skin of rubber, everything on his body stretches. Everything.
    • The Two Girls to a Team, Nami and Robin also qualify. The former consistently dresses up in Stripperiffic clothes for probably no other reason than pure fanservice. Robin sports leather outfits which gives away her hourglass form, and when she's captured she usually ends up gagged. In fact, Robin won a One Piece poll on the single most attractive woman in the setting, beating out Boa Hancock, who's one canonically.
    • Zoro too. When you look at him, you just can't avert your eyes from his abs.
  • Ayase of Okane Ga Nai. It's practically canon. Fans are of the opinion that he releases pheromones that make everyone want to jump his bones.
  • Three words: Panty and Stocking. Not only in-universe these two girls can get all the population of Daten City nosebleed like there's no tomorrow, the fandom - yes, the entire fandom - says that if you didn't dream at least once to make love with them you don't have a pulse. The fact these girls can get quite kinky at times does not help matters at all.
    • An analogous story is with their demon rivals, Scanty and Kneesocks.
  • M16 agent Jack Bancoran from Boku Patalliro! can shoot sexy beams out of his eye balls.
  • Pokémon — Gary Oak: You cannot ignore his girth.
    • Giovanni is a buffet of manliness.
    • More minor example in Giselle from the anime's ninth episode:
    Giselle: I'm the top student in the beginning class of the most exclusive club in the world, Pokémon Tech. It's sad that others aren't blessed with my beauty, my talent, my humble attitude. People call me a star, but I'm just Giselle!
    • Giselle's status is caused by one simple factor: Ash, who is a Chaste Hero and Oblivious to Love, lusted after her even before seeing her in person! A picture was enough...
  • Kuranosuke from Princess Jellyfish is well known for being a very fashionable Wholesome Crossdresser who's pretty in drag or out. Even the Guys Want Him and it helps, unlike most crossdressers in anime, that he's an adult.
  • Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Everybody wants to squeeze Mami's mammies. And every girl in town wants to be part of Homura's harem. A Homurem, if you like. Out-of-universe, Kyoko is one to the cast; Aoi Yuki actually declared her her wife.
    • That said, in the eyes of the fandom, all the main 5 qualify; everyone gets shipped with everyone else by some quarters.
  • To say nothing of the title character of Ranma ˝ who gets this treatment in both his girl form and male form. Probably the only example where you can truly say everyone is straight for Ranma.
  • Rosario + Vampire: Tsukune Aono doesn't easily get seduced by a succubus. The succubus gets easily seduced by Tsukune Aono. Same goes for his vampiric girlfriend, his lolita witch, his gothic masochist witch, and his cryokinetic stalker. A simple compliment to them and they all want to have his child.
    • It doesn't matter which Moka is in control, both are appealing to both men and women. Any member of the Newspaper Club that looks at least 14 is considered sexy.
    • And a single kiss from Kurumu, (the succubus mentioned above) can Heel-Face Turn people trying to kill her.
  • Sailor Moon, the titular character codified this trope for magical girls.
  • Hisa of Saki has a reputation as a "womanizer" among the fandom due to quite a few Les Yay moments. At a mahjong tournament three years ago, she complimented Mihoko's Magical Eye (her right eye is blue, compared to her red/brown left eye) by saying that rubies and sapphires are gems of two different colors that are made out of the same mineral. She also spent most of her high school career trying to get Kiyosumi's mahjong club restarted, and spent an entire year with herself and Mako as the only actual members, becoming quite close to Mako in the process. In the training camp, she gets onto a First Name Basis with Yumi and ends up making double-entendres about what happened, much to Momo's horror. In her match in the quarterfinals, she gets the normally expressionless Haru to smile after sampling and complimenting her muscovado chips.
  • Strawberry Shake Sweet: There is no such thing as a straight girl, just one who has yet to meet Ryou of ZLAY.
  • Umm, no mention of Tenchi and Seina? Their respective harem is just off the charts..
  • Both 2chan and /a/ are a wee bit obsessed with Kotetsu T. Kaburagi from Tiger & Bunny, going as far as declaring him the ultimate hot Dad, buying out the stock of the real-life brand of cologne he uses, and naming a fetish for Adorkable older men after his Fan Nickname.
    Anonymous: Nobody can resist the Oyaji Moe
  • In To Love-Ru Rito will induct every woman he meets into his harem, even if they are trying to kill him. It's just the way he rolls.
  • Vash, Wolfwood, and Legato from Trigun all get this treatment to varying degrees.
  • Haruka Kasugano in Yosuga no Sora can make women orgasm just from his presence alone. And guess what? This just happened in episode one.
  • Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Dark Magician Girl's sight alone causes fanboys everywhere to touch themselves.
    • Also Duke Devlin.
  • "Yu-Gi-Oh! GX": Jaden Yuki, despite being a Chaste Hero, gets massive amounts of harem fanfiction written about him. Also consider the extremely graphic Lemons and Limes written about him.
  • If one is to believe the fangirls, Youko Kurama of YuYu Hakusho is a sex god, despite no conclusive evidence either way.
    • Although, at least in the dub, when Kurama transforms at the tournament the announcer chick begins fangirling herself, ending one rant with "Who IS this Love God!?"
    • There is also a scene in the episode where Shishiwakamaru versus Genkai and you can see there are HUNDREDS of fangirls in the stadium, calling out his name except one of them mentions something akin to "He's no Youko but..." "Don't be so fickle blondie!"

    Comics 
  • Susan "Sue" Storm-Richards/The Invisible Woman of The Fantastic Four gets this quite a bit. Must be the allure of a woman who can free herself from having to walk around in clothes all day long by turning invisible...
  • Storm of the X-Men is considered this among some circles. Man, Woman, Alien, if it has a pulse (and occasionally not even that) people are hot for her and the attentions are oft returned.
  • Fangirls constantly mention that they want to marry Ragamuffin from Lenore the Cute Little Dead Girl.
  • Jean Grey of the X-Men has this: Cyclops, Wolverine, Gambit, Jason Wyngarde and through her clone, Sebastian Shaw and probably Nate Grey (at least, until he figured out who Maddie really was). Thankfully, he sees Jean as more of a Parental Substitute.
  • Iron Man: Tony Stark.
    • Wizard once published... uhhm... let's call it a "frak-chart" that showed the reach of Stark's penis (going with the theory that if you sleep with someone you've slept with everyone they've ever slept with). It went up to Galactus. Here's the link. According to the chart, Stark has had 9 sexual partners, only 2 of which have connections to all those other characters (including Galactus). Seems like we should really be impressed with Black Widow and The Wasp here. After the Marvel / Disney merger, jokes abounded that Stark would have his way with each and every one of the princesses.
    • He did. He especially has eyes for Jasmine.
  • The Goddamn Batman. His main strategy when approaching a female foe is to seduce them.
    • That's Catwoman's usual MO too. Which makes the scenes between the two of them all the better, because they both obviously are attracted to the other, but are trying very very hard not to admit it.
      • And now with Batman Incorporated, they're not even trying any more.
    • Nightwing, aka Dick Grayson - The finger stripes. THE FINGER STRIPES. And the gratuitous butt shots. And there's everything else.
    • The other Robins get a little of this, too:
    • Poison Ivy who is one of the hottest comic book women ever, and she can emit pheromones to make anyone fall for her, anyone!
  • Wonder Woman, the poster girl of the typical super hot amazon.
  • Starfire, especially in her New Fifty Two incarnation.
  • Brandy from Frank Cho's Liberty Meadows. Seeing her stretch is tantamout to having sex, you'll want a cigarette afterwards.
  • Nikolai Dante is certainly this. He was partly based on Errol Flynn after all.
  • Spider-Man, Peter Parker has the uncanny ability to get women to make out with him.
  • She-Hulk best known as green skinned amazon.

    Fan Works 
  • Dungeon Keeper Ami: Or, as Ami might say "Baseless rumors founded on misunderstandings".
  • Duke Devlin in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series. Almost every single line of dialogue involing Duke, regardless of if it is about him or if he's the one speaking, is a sex joke. And every time he talks "Sexy Back" plays. EVERY time. And in his first episode, we were treated to this voiceover:
    Male Voice: Warning: This episode contains copious amounts of Duke Devlin. Women with heart conditions are advised not to 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.
    • And later in the same episode:
    Tea: Have you heard about that new student? They say he's the sexiest thing since sex."
    • As of episode 51, Duke now has a single line of dialogue that doesn't have his theme music. It's still a sex joke.
  • Fans of the Metal Gear Solid 3 fan webcomic The Cobra Days has turned the creator's version of The Fear like a memetic sex god. Even the creator of the series drew herself multiple times molesting him. Oddly, Fear in her comic is a Depraved Bisexual, and other characters react to him as if he were disgusting.
  • In this Death Note fanfic, Light, but, surprisingly, L is even more so.
  • Shirou is an in-universe example in The Hill of Swords. Later used for political advantage: "This is what happens when you start rumors about someone being some kind of sex god: people try to pray to them."
  • Commander Hurricane in A Brief History of Equestria is this taken Up to Eleven. It is estimated that One in Seven pegasi are direct descendants of him. Amongst theMane 6, Fluttershy is a direct Descendant. Ironically, Rainbow Dash, who played him in the Heart's Warming Eve pageant, is not.
    • At one point Commander Hurricane inadvertently shuts down the Pegasus government by simultaneously impregnating all the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. At another point he is diagnosed with every venereal disease known to science. It becomes Plot relevant when his daughter, Pansy, is named his Second in Command against her wishes. Hurricane had knocked up every single one of his previous Seconds in Command and the higher ups were desperate to find a Second he wouldn't bone, so they forced his daughter to take the job.
  • Once Upon A Time Abridged has Rumpelstiltskin/Mr. Gold. Rumpelstiltskin has dated Snow during her college days and been married to Ruby. His alternate Mr. Gold has a reputation for having dated every single woman in Storybrooke with the exception of Ruby (Who tries too hard), Granny (Who refuses his advances) and Emma (Who is creeped out by him). By episode 14, he's so bored that he's even asking the nuns, whom he doesn't even consider human. There's even a motto "It's impossible to go back once you've gone Gold"
  • Harry Potter could give Naruto a run for his money.
    • Bellatrix Lestange is done by fans as a female example who can have anyone she whats except the man she loves.
  • Mary Lee Walsh of Sonichu, despite actually being a grey-haired "witch" of a community college dean, is often drawn as a sexy succubus with blonde hair and horns, if not only to anger CWC.
  • There have arisen several fics parodying the fanbase's tendency to see Harry Dresden this way. In the first one listed, Ivy explains it;
    Kincaid: So tell me more about Dresden. Why do they like him so much? He's a scruffy magician in a basement.
    Ivy: I'm sure you already know why. He conforms to the image of the self-denying hero. He has a fuzzy kitty. And he makes things explode a lot.
    Kincaid: I make things explode a lot. Why don't they love me?
    Ivy: Oh, some of them do.
  • In Button's Adventures, his mother is seen as this. Her perpetual "bedroom eyes" were intentional by the animator.

  • Depending on which corners of the Harry Potter fandom you trip across, Snape, pimp king.
  • Warrior Cats: Not fandom-wide, but among his fans Hawkfrost is definitely one.
  • Pride and Prejudice: Mr Darcy. OOH MISTER DARCY
  • The name's Bond. James Bond. It's canonical.
    • It's often been said of him that every man wants to be him, and every woman wants to be with him. This was inevitable for him.
      • Jack Reacher from Lee Child's novels has quickly stolen some of James Bond's thunder. His tagline in the books is 'Every man wants to be him, every woman wants to be with him.'
  • Women are powerless against Conan the Barbarian's sheer animal magnetism.
  • The Star Wars Expanded Universe features this regularly: In addition to the Big Three and Lando, there's Jacen Solo (Just look at the cover for Destiny's Way!) and Jaina Solo (for the threesome subtext in Denning's work). Corran Horn can be one, but it has all the markings of a Forced Meme. Oddly enough, the latest one, Ben Skywalker, canonically hasn't had sex with anyone yet (although he's been flirted with plenty, and in Ascension, he gets his First Kiss).
  • Sherlock Holmes: Watson has earned the occasional Fan Nickname 'the scourge of three continents', due to lines from said narrator about having ... experience... of women from, well, three continents. Plus extreme vagueness and inconsistencies on Arthur Conan Doyle's part manage to imply that Watson has three separate marriages over the course of the stories.
  • The Hunger Games: Finnick Odair is an in-universe example, as well as a devastating subversion.
  • Twilight: Edward Cullen and Jacob Black are both lusted after by both teenage girls and their middle-aged mothers.
  • Wheel of Time has:
    • Rand al'Thor in a simultaneous relationship with three women. They all know and are all okay with it. Explicitly in the story.
      • On the other hand, he has several thousand Maidens ... of the Spear. All to himself.
    • In-universe, the Green Ajah is known to be ... close with their many Warders.
    • It's hard for Sea Folk women to keep their shirts on.
    • Lots of Aes Sedai are "pillow friends".
  • A Song of Ice and Fire's Tormund Giantsbane. Want proof? Tormund's member.
    • In-universe, Tyrion Lannister is a self-proclaimed Memetic Sex God.
    • Oberyn Martell qualifies.
  • Played with in the Nero Wolfe series: Nero Wolfe is convinced that his assistant, Archie Goodwin, is this — but that's primarily because Wolfe himself has next to no understanding of or ability with women whatsoever. While Goodwin is definitely The Charmer, has plenty of success with the ladies and certainly wouldn't mind being this, he does note that he's not quite the lady-magnet his boss seems to think he is.

    The Dresden Files (Yeah, It Needs Its Own Folder) 
  • The Dresden Files: I hear Harry Dresden is so hot, he melted Arctis Tor.
    • Everyone asks Carlos what it was like to ride Dresden's dinosaur.
    • They say that everyone wants Lara Raith. Lara Raith wants Harry Dresden. This one isn't even memetic, it actually is true.
      • Harry once used a kiss from Lara to fuel his magic. Which caused her to lose control.
    • The Summer Lady dresses up in leather for Harry Dresden, and the Winter Lady dresses in lace.
      • The first Summer Lady did everything she could to keep Dresden's head in her lap.
    • I hear Mavra got a tan to appeal to Dresden.
    • I hear his smile makes Tera West want to have kittens.
    • The Denarians had him all tied up. And wet.
    • Molly, the daughter of the Fist of God and Harry's apprentice has hots for him. He once ended up giving her CPR while she was topless. While his girlfriend let herself into his house. She wasn't angry. There was acid. It Makes Sense in Context.
    • Harry had someone living in his head who could look like anyone or anything. He's had her tied up and on her knees and has made out with her. Okay, he didn't actually know that was her, but still.
    • Harry has half of the Faerie Queens trying to get in his pants. The immortal kind.
    • Harry tussled with a Faerie Lady at his friends' wedding.
    • Harry's had five Faerie Queen Daughters, immortals who control men with a twitch of their...assets, fail to seduce him. Maeve, Aurora, Lily, Maeve's twin sister Sarissa, and Molly. So far, that last one was before she became a Faerie. The mind-sex with Maeve and Sarissa was also pretty good.
    • Harry had sex with Mab. Period.
      • And she broadcast it.
    • Did you hear about Dresden and Arianna's steamy session?
    • Harry was in Molly when he was a ghost. Lampshaded.
    • As of Skin Game, he has literally borne the child of a fallen angel.
    • Harry rode Goodman Grey to the point of exhaustion.
  • Thomas Raith. Full stop.
    • All White Court vampires of house Raith are in-universe sex-demon-hybrids, and their leader is an in-universe literal incarnation of this trope. He was the (in-universe) Ur Example of the Kiss of Death. The White Court Vampire with the most screen time is Thomas, Harry's brother,, followed by Lara Raith, his sister. Harry and Thomas hang out a lot.
      • Harry met Lara on the set of a pornographic film. She was acting.
    • Thomas was fired from practically every business in Chicago because women kept throwing themselves on him, getting him fired.
  • Carlos claims to be this, but is actually a virgin. Lara nearly takes him on the spot, in front of Harry and the driver.

    Live-Action TV 
  • In Smallville, Clark Kent has always been a grade A Chick Magnet, but Kal brings this Up to Eleven, because All Girls Want Bad Boys. And it is mostly canon - no girl is able of resisting Clark.
  • The Doctor of Doctor Who is a part canonical, part Mutation example. Nearly every single one of his numerous companions can be said to have been in love with him with little creative interpretation, not to mention recurring characters (the Master, especially), one-time characters and even people met or mentioned in passing. In fandom this ranges from being an intensely charming and charismatic person that attracts everyone whether intentionally or not, to The Casanova surpassing even Jack who seeks to shag everyone in time and space at least once.
    • This is more a facet of the new series than it ever was of the old one. While some companions from the older series might be seen in that light (Romana being the most obvious), most incline far more towards seeing him as a surrogate father figure sort of character (and some, like Peri, literally had their backstories written with that in mind). Trying to cast some of the younger companions (like Vicki, Victoria, Zoe, or Ace) in a more romantic vein actually borders on extreme Squick.
      • Ace in particular has been Jossed. Word of God says she was intended to be a lesbian.
    • The fact that his Gallifreyan regenerations only cause there to be neverending new facets to his personalit[ies] only adds to the effect. One can only imagine what kind of distaff counterpart situations will arise once/assuming his daughter starts her own regenerations.
  • Jack Harkness is probably the reason why Everyone Is Bi in Torchwood. (Well, the women don't need to be bi to want him, but they are anyway. He's walking aphrodisiac.)
    • Regarding that parenthetical remark:
    "Contraceptives in the rain; God I love this planet. Still, at least I won't get pregnant. Never doing that again."
    • Bit of a Call Back: the Face of Boe announced his pregnancy in "The Long Game".
    Rex: "What is it with you? You make everybody around you gay?"
    Jack: "That�s the plan!"
    #he means sex
    #he always means sex
  • Spencer Shay on iCarly. The amount of women he's hooked up with is in the low to mid 20's. From a kid's show with about 60 odd episodes where he's not even one of the power trio main characters.
  • Dean Winchester of Supernatural has demons whispering in his ear that he's "just edible," human women helping him escape prison just because he bats his pretty lashes, and angels... Well, the man has cut himself a slice of angel food cake. Is it any surprise that fandom tells Chuck Norris jokes about him - "Dean Winchester once visited the Virgin Islands. Now they're just the Islands." - and regards him as the Launcher of a Thousand Ships?
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
    • Xander Harris. While relatively Badass Normal in his own right, he is canonically more often the comic relief /distressed damsel with the good ideas and empathy to spare. But by the sheer amount of sex that this character gets in the fandom, both in the in-universe fanfiction as well in the many, MANY crossovers, he may as well be the Series' resident sex god. The reputation stems from the fact that he was canonically engaged to and regularly engaged in sex marathons with his nymphomaniac ex-demoness girlfriend, who describes him as a "Viking In The Sack". It also worth mentioning that this girlfriend was the former 'Patron Saint of Scorned Women', a man-hater with a penchant for disembowelment until Xander managed to boink her so good, she became a nympho. Before that, he bagged the most popular girl in his high school while he was a geek and social outcast, he also got together with his redhead lesbian best friend, and a Bad Ass Dark Action Girl Slayer (mystically empowered teenage girl). In the tie-in comic book series, he got into a relationship with another Slayer, and then long term relationship with an extremely hot younger girl (the titular character's little sister), while simultaneously having the titular character herself (who notoriously prefers vampires to humans sexually) gain feelings for him.
    • Even the Guys Want Him: Dracula. Yes, that Dracula, canonically desires Xander's body in a sexual way. It is also worth noting that Xander is the fan-preferred pairing to nearly every man in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its sister series Angel.
    • Buffy is one In-Universe. According to Spike she can go for five hours straight. There's also the handcuffs and the bite marks and other things he's utterly blown away by.
  • Heroes' Sylar (a.k.a. Gabriel Gray), despite some of the fandom regarding him as creepy, has been shipped with almost every character in the series at some point, usually Mohinder Suresh or Claire Bennet. It helps that the larger section of the fandom that doesn't regard him as creepy finds him incredibly sexy.
  • Ace Rimmer of Red Dwarf... What a Guy! He's also one in universe.
  • Brazilian soap opera actor José Mayer. "Zé Mayer Facts" about his superhuman sexual prowess became popular, specially on Twitter:
    Rock stars often autograph fans' breasts. Jose Mayer autograph uteruses.
    Seven days after José Mayer watched The Ring, he got a phone call. It was Samara, saying she was pregnant.
    José Mayer gave a bailout to all the world's sperm banks.
    José Mayer is the reason DNA tests are only 98% accurate.
  • Stand and salute for Joan from Mad Men! Christina Hendricks and Matthew Weiner have acknowledged this, particularly when discussing the scene where Joan's roommate confesses her love for her. According to them, if fan reactions to Joan's hotness are anything to go by, that probably wasn't the first time a woman has hit on Joan. Also, the most important tip in Don Draper's Guide to Picking Up Women: "Basically, be Don Draper."
    Straight from Mad Men there's Joan
    Ah, the curves she has shown
    It would make a blind man say 'damn,'
    She could turn a gay straight—
    Oh wait, never mind, there's Jon Hamm!
  • Magnum, P.I.: Tom Selleck in his full prime driving a Ferrari around Hawaii with the Bad Ass Mustache.
  • Agent Derek Morgan from Criminal Minds.
  • Chuck Bass of Gossip Girl is one of these; a major plot point in Season 3 revolves around his ability to pick up anyone, male or female, in five minutes or less.
  • DCI Gene Hunt of Life On Mars/Ashes to Ashes fame. Macho, sexist and not averse to kicking in a nonce or three; when he tells you to "Get in the Quattro!", you get in the Quattro. If anyone else pulled that level of misogyny and political incorrectness, they'd be instantly lynched, but not the Guv. And as long as he 'stays out of Camberwick Green' he can get away with anything because he is DCI Gene Hunt; Sexiest Man Ever. Fact.
  • Mahou Sentai Magiranger: Hikaru/Magi Shine can seduce your Love Interest away from you, while you're standing right there, just by smiling at her.
  • ''The X-Files: Tall, Dark and Handsome Alex Krycek who traits about everyone on the show. In most fanfics in which Krycek appears, he ends up in bed (or against a wall) with someone.
  • Eliot Spencer from Leverage has slept with a woman from every profession known to man and absorbed all their knowledge through osmosis. "You know that just from sleeping with her?" — "It's a very distinctive osmosis."
  • Sanctuary: Dr Helen Magnus could flash that famous Amanda Tapping smile at a stick, and a contingent of fans would immediately start shipping Helen/Stick. Besides, throw ten darts into the regular and recurring cast of Sanctuary, and nine of them will strike a character who has canonically lusted after Magnus at some point. At least four of them would have hit Nikola Tesla, but even so...
  • Sherlock gives us John "Three Continents" Watson, who seems to be a memetic sex god in-universe, as well as out.
  • Mention to many British men that Susanna Reid is presenting BBC Breakfast this morning and watch them start to pay very close attention. Here's a for instance.
  • Nancy Botwin on Weeds. So many hot guys slobbering over her, it's like a gender-reversed Axe commercial.
  • Vampire Diaries: Damon Salvatore; he's also a king of Cross Overs.
  • The West Wings fandom has Josh Lyman. He shows traces of being one in-universe as well, even though he doesn't seem to be having a lot of sex during the course of the show.
  • Game of Thrones:
    • Podrick Payne, Tyrion Lanninster's squire, becomes a canon example. Tyrion rewards his diligence and loyalty note  with a session with three prostitutes... and he apparently pleasures them so well that they refuse payment. Everybody who hears about this is shocked and desperately trying to find out his secret, even Varys, a master politician and schemer who has no sex drive because he is an eunuch. Women on the royal court swoon on his passing.
    • Daenerys Targaryen.
    • Seldom will you find a better in- and out-of-universe example than Oberyn Martell.
  • On Arrow, Oliver Queen started here, being a handsome, rich playboy with no impulse control, but even he has been supplanted by his partner Sara, the Canary, thanks to a heaping helping of Even the Girls Want Her. In fact, the episode "Heir to the Demon," at its core, is devoted to Oliver and Nyssa fighting desperately over who gets her.
  • Shane from the L Word
  • Bodie and Doyle from the 1970's - 80's cop show The Professionals. Bodie was the tall, dark and handsome one while Doyle was the sweet, sensitive and skinny one. Both generally had/mentioned a new girlfriend every episode and at least once one or the other seduced a suspect for information.
  • Kris Munroe on Charlie's Angels.
  • Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was able to turn Mockingbird into one of these, as she, after only an hour or so after first appearing, had already attracted a large flock of people from all sexualities declaring themselves completely in love with her.

    Myths & Religion 
  • Older Than Feudalism: Apollo really, really gets around. A lot. So do most male Greek gods, although few are as pretty as Apollo.
    • His sister, Artemis, called him out on this after Apollo praised the virtues of moderation. His response?
    Apollo: "All things in moderation... including moderation!"
    • Likewise, everyone gets around with Zeus, whether they want to or not.
    • Venus/Aphrodite, surprisingly, is more into causing other people to fall in love/lust.
    • Heracles. All of the above (in the Greek myths) are actual god(des)s, where as he fit this trope even in mortal life. Sure he ascended to deity status after death (and, being a child of one), but not before having "Obtained the Golden Fleece" of many a woman and man.
  • From Norse Mythology, Loki. He has both fathered children, and given birth to Odin's horse.
    • And his daughter Hel, goddess of the underworld. Well, one half of her, anyway; the other half's Medusa-like in the way that it freezes men with horror (it's rotten like a corpse, fitting her role as the goddess of the underworld.)
      • Most people are aware of Loki's affair with the horse, and his three monstrous children (Hel, Fenris and Jormundgand,) but Loki actually has a whole host of slightly less infamous children on top of that. Among the lesser-known of his brood are Dagr (Day) and Nott (Night,) plus two normal Aesir children with his wife Sigyn.
    • Fatherhood aside, Loki seems to have been the bad boy that all the girls want; he was described as "pleasing and handsome" in appearance, and could be quite charming when he wanted to. During the Lokasenna he alludes to having slept his way through most of the Norse pantheon of goddesses, which most of them notably fail to protest. Significant among his conquests are Sif, wife of Thor, and Skadi — the giantess who fixed the serpent over his head during his punishment. Yeah, their relationship was complicated (Loki is the one who started the conflict that lead to her father's death).
      • Other sources describe Loki's appetite for sex as having been insatiable, to the point where he would even seduce trees and rocks themselves.
    • Freyja is a canon example, being the godess of love. Everyone wants her, gods, giant, dwarfes...
  • Lakota mythology has, on a sliding scale from Memetic Sex God to Memetic Molester, Okaga the south wind (embodiment of masculinity); the sun god Wi (keeps mistresses); the trickster Iktomi (Depraved Bisexual); and Gnaskipeya (even more depraved, but no stories of him having sex with men).
  • Many versions of Coyote are this, although he also slides over to Memetic Molester status in a lot of versions. He's been known to use disguises, magic, shapeshifting and deceit to get laid.
  • In the Islamic version of the tale of Joseph and Potiphar's Wife (yes, the one from the Book of Genesis), Yusuf (that's "Joseph" in Arabic) was so beautiful, his master's wife tried to seduce him. When he refused her, she accused him of rape. He was exonerated, and the wife was mocked for her infatuation by her friends. She invited them over, handed them apples and knives to peel them, then called in Yusuf. They were so taken with his beauty, they cut themselves with the knives.

  • Slaaneshi daemons in Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 are a paradoxical version of this that borders on Mind Screw; viewing them will cause you to want them, even if you recognise them as the warp-spawned monstrosities that they are. Slaanesh being the god of (among other things) lust, beauty and desire certainly doesn't hurt... though since the "other things" include pleasure through unutterable pain and torture, the paradox occurs again.
    • Does it count when the guy in question is a literal sex god?
    • A running joke in the setting is that they aren't actually all that attractive except in person, since the effect is magical. In at least one in-universe book the reader can track the author's state of corruption by watching him go from being disgusted by drawings of them to completely obsessed with them over the course of a few chapters.
  • In the First Age of Exalted, Ma-Ha-Suchi was an in-universe example. The Wolf with the Red Roses, as he was known back then, had made it his life's mission to sleep with every Celestial Exalt in Creation. That he was doing quite well at this is no surprise when you see what he looked like. Shame the Usurpation happened...

  • Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog: Dr. Ivo Robotnik, thanks to YouTube Poop. It doesn't help that his designer was set out to make him "the world's sexiest fat man".
    • That's not to say Sonic himself doesn't get any action. At least five girls in Mobius fell for his charm.
  • Archer has so many examples of this trope, it's become a Memetic Sex Pantheon.
  • Given Avatar: The Last Airbender has a prominent female cast and no shortage of attractive males, it was inevitable that some of them would wind up here:
    • Sokka was quite the ladies' man in-series, having successfully hooked up with Suki and, before her, Princess Yue. Plus, he was the object of Ty Lee's one-sided crush. But it's his Wang Fire cover identity that earns him his spot here. Though it was only used briefly as a disguise, it quickly became an internet meme that merely looking at Wang Fire could get a girl pregnant. Due largely in part to Katara posing as his pregnant wife, Mrs. "Sapphire Fire", complete with a Balloon Belly disguise.
    • Speaking of Ty Lee, you can imagine the thoughts some fans have had about her sexual prowess, given she's an acrobat and a contortionist, and has mastered the art of manipulating the pressure points of the human body. You can also guess which point they have in mind.
    • Princess Azula is regarded more as a Memetic Molester, ever since that "favorite prisoner" line she used in regard to Suki in "The Day of Black Sun" mini arc. Which had more than a few fans wanting to be her prisoner, themselves, but gladly envisioning Mai, Ty Lee, and even her brother, Zuko, in their stead.
  • Episode 2 of the Black Dynamite animated series reveals Bullhorn as this.
    • What can I say, the man can rhyme and sing~/ You'd be hard-pressed to find another (literal) panty-droppin' dingaling!
  • Maddie Fenton from Danny Phantom, who's basically following the footsteps of Dexter's mom from Dexter's Laboratory.
  • Princess What's-Her-Name from Earthworm Jim. Hideously deformed by the standards of her home planet Insektica, but captivatingly beautiful by the standards of Earth.
  • Double D. Although not really sexy, he is seen as insanely cute by girls In-Universe and out, both with his looks, geeky personality and his very shy and humble traits. But if you ever thought this prevents the fans from depicting him as a Memetic Sex God, boy, you are wrong.
  • Bill Clinton as portrayed on Family Guy. When Peter confronts him for sleeping with Lois, he ends up in bed with Clinton himself in less than five minutes.
    Lois: "Mr. President, I need to have a word with you!"
    scene change...
    Lois: "Wow! You're certainly are very persuasive."
    Bill: "So I've been told. Hey are you up for a little NAFTA?
    Lois: "What's that?
    Bill: "Nother Afternoon Fucking That Ass!" *laughs
    • Also within Family Guy, Lois Griffin herself counts as this.
  • Peg from Goof Troop. Everyone wants her, even her own children, her neighbor's kid, and people from other series.
    • Goofy too, considering that Max is living proof he actually had sex with someone.
  • Flippy from Happy Tree Friends, especially his human, anime version. Even his teddy bear version is considered to be sexy by many fans. The comments on Youtube videos clearly prove it.
  • Kim Possible: She can do anything. The slash fiction says everyone wants her, and forum caption threads claim she leaves them broken and spent as she still demands more.
    • Given that she is satisfied in their relationship, what does that make Ron?
  • A growing number of Bronies agree that Big Macintosh from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic has been working all the mares' crops in Ponyville.
    • In the official comic books, Big Mac does get all the mares. He's not even interested in Princess Luna. That doesn't stop her from trying.
    • The entire mane cast could be considered this, along with Princess Celestia.
    • As evil and frightening as she is, there's bound to be others who have given this 'honor' to Queen Chrysalis. In the show's G/PG-rated world, she is, after all, essentially a succubus.
      • Speaking of evil characters, pretty much every major villain got their fair share of shipping (yes, even the Windigos), though Discord is the most blatantly obvious of them, being usually paired with Celestia and Pinkie Pie. Nightmare Moon, on the other hand, tends to end up somewhere else.
      • From Equestria Girls Rainbow Rocks Adagio Dazzle, who after the Villain Song "Let's Have a Battle (of the Bands)", fans like to feature her flirting/seducing nearly everyone, including the viewers.
    • Spitfires has been portrayed like this by the fandom for a while now. She's also been getting some pretty suggestive fanart from the fandom.
  • Scooby-Doo's Velma Dinkley is a barely-restrained sex goddess in nerd's clothing, a barely-in-the-closet butch lesbian, or both, depending on interpretation. In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, she's certainly not shy about what she wants in a relationship.
    • Daphne Blake, because she has been in almost every Scooby-Doo related project solely because of her sex appeal.
  • South Park: Kenny McKormick will do anything.
    • Chef. He's got the best balls in the whole wide world.
    • Cartman's mother has screwed every man in town. Even Mr. Garrison had sex with her.
  • Teen Titans has Starfire, her looks are constantly praised by heroes, even villains, and bystanders.
    • Raven falls under this trope as well.
  • The Legend of Korra also has its share of Perverse Sexual Lust Objects:
    • Naturally, Korra is foremost among them, due to her caramel complexion, natural beauty, and the fact she's a hot amazon. Many a fan declared themselves "Korrasexual" well in advance of the series' premiere and she's since become a Launcher of a Thousand Ships. Which is why a popular solution to the shipping wars is to simply have Korra form a harem that includes everyone in the new Team Avatar.
    • As the series' leading male, Mako has gained a pretty decent fangirl following and is obviously shipped with both Korra and Asami.
    • All Asami needs to do is flip her hair and the boys come running to her side.
    • As sleazy as he may be, Tahno actually earned a fangirl following of his own, both in-series and among the fandom. With many citing his line about wanting to show Korra how a pro "bends".
    • General Iroh II was shipped with everyone just hours after his character was revealed.
    • "Book 3" introduced Opal Bei Fong. If the growing amount of hentai art of her is any indication, it seems the fandom thinks the rest of the cast wants into her robes. Korra is the main one depicted with her, as much of the aforementioned artwork features them as Friends with Benefits.
    • The same can be said of Bolin, who briefly dated Eska, which soon had fans shipping him with her and her twin brother, Desna. There's also art of him shagging Opal and her mother - in some case, with both at once.
  • The Modifyers: Lacey Shadows has become a little known internet sensation, thanks to her characterization in the pornographic parody, where she's portrayed as having an insatiable libido and well-versed in multiple sex positions. It's the reason most even know that show ever existed and has spawned loads of hentai fan art of her.
  • Sara Bellum from The Powerpuff Girls. So sexy, her face can't legally be shown in a children's cartoon.
  • Knock Out from Transformers Prime is becoming either this or a Memetic Molester (hard to tell) amongst the YouTube and Deviant ART crowds. If you believe the fan art, Knock Out has been with everyone. Doesn't help that he's depicted as a metrosexual in canon.
  • Flora from Winx Club is considered particularly gorgeous by some and in-universe, she receives the most attention from guys. Even a villain said she'd be his favorite if they weren't enemies, and she has more ships than the other protagonists.
  • Red Arrow from Young Justice. Is it the red hair? Those muscles? Being voiced by Crispin Freeman?
    • All of the above, maybe?
    • Robin. Season two along with the corresponding comic turned it Up to Eleven and then some: he's legal now and has gotten with Zatanna and Rocket in the past, had a one night stand with Bette Kane AND Batgirl within twenty four hours of each other, implied to be crushed on by Wonder Girl, and has gotten flexible in a fight with Tigress/Artemis. He's bound to make Batman proud at this point.
