No Yay
The horrible lovechild of Fetish Fuel and Squick.
Image by Mathia Arkoniel. Used with permission.

"Are you... Are you coming on to me?! Sweet Lord, I don't even have the words for how repugnantly wrong that is!"

Subtext can be all kinds of fun. It can hint that those Heterosexual Life-Partners might not be so Hetero. Or those Bitter Enemies might not hate each other after all. Or, even if they do legitimately hate each other, there may be hints that the hatred in question isn't exactly platonic. Unfortunately, sometimes subtext can be used for a very different effect.

That's No Yay. Implied sexual tension, intentional or otherwise, between two (or more) characters to make the average fan reach for the Brain Bleach, for reasons such as Pedophilic overtones, Unequal Pairings, or Sexual Harassment and Rape Tropes. If one half of the pairing is a Memetic Molester this is likely to occur. Essentially, the shipping version of Fan Disservice.

Remember to note that an implied relationship between two consenting adults is not No Yay, and the presence of another element is required. When adding examples, please be sure to explain why that potential ship is a No Yay and what separates it from just regular Ho Yay or Foe Yay. Of course, one person's Squick is another person's Fetish Fuel, and this is a highly subjective trope. And if you're just here to complain about a pairing you don't like, please keep it off the main page.

See also Squick, Fan Disservice, Not What It Looks Like, Nightmare Fuel, Brain Bleach, Sick and Wrong, "No. Just... No" Reaction and This Is Wrong on So Many Levels. Also tends to crop up when I Have You Now, My Pretty and its sister tropes get played horrifyingly straight.

Examples:

    open/close all folders 

    Anime & Manga 
  • Deadman Wonderland: Genkaku/Nagi. It starts off a bit more subtle, with Genkaku seeming a bit too intense and obsessed with getting Nagi to join the Undertakers (along with an interrogation scene between the two, where Genkaku is shown licking the blood from Nagi's arm after his hand was chopped off and telling him what he says is "cute" and that his severed hand has become "cute" as well). Later, the No Yay levels go through the roof when Genkaku is shown getting incredibly turned on by Nagi killing some poor sap, saying that Nagi is a "red flower that has bloomed." After that, he later pretty much gives Nagi a love confession telling him that the murderous side of him was beautiful and exquisite, and that he loved him.
  • Hunter × Hunter
    • Hisoka/Gon and Hisoka/Killua. It doesn't help that he is a Monster Clown, has a unnatural fixation on them and stared at their butts in one scene. Or that he called them "unripe fruit" that he wants to pluck and destroy once they become stronger warriors, and wondered "why exactly does unripe fruit look so delicious?" In addition to that there's the fact that both are twelve years old and Hisoka is 28.
    • Feitan has his own creepy brand of this, as he wanted to torture Gon slowly, and combine it with how he reads books by Trevor Brown (to paraphrase from the wikipedia article, the guy draws surreal doll-fetish kiddie-torture-porn).
  • Naruto
    • There is much suspicion among fans that Orochimaru wants Sasuke's body for reasons more... personal than simply having a powerful new vessel. The chapter 345 manga cover that featured a smiling Orochimaru literally wrapping his tongue and arms around Sasuke with the caption to the side reading "Within these arms. At the end of this tongue. The future that I raised," or the anime intro with a nude Sasuke wrapped in Orochimaru's pet snakes with Orochimaru's eyes watching the image, make it so much worse.
      • In Konoha Gakuen Den, "Orochimaruko" is portrayed as a transvestite ephebophile who's after Sasuke, which, in turn, ends up Squicking most of the cast. With the exception of Sasuke himself. He likes it. In THAT way, apparently (come on, he's drooling and smiling!).
    • Orochimaru's apparent fondness for randomly caressing the faces of little kids (such as Kimimaro), or trying to wrap his ridiculously long phallic-looking tongue around people's bodies, or referring to Naruto and Sasuke as "cute" and "beautiful", or thinking "Your body will be mine soon, Sasuke-kun". Then there's his final fight with Sasuke, in which Orochimaru sweats and struggles against being pinned against the wall before reverting to his true form, a giant snake comprised of a bunch of tinier snakes, and trying to wrap his snakes and curl himself around/smother a half-naked Sasuke while screaming "Give me your body, Sasuke-kun!"
    • In episode 53 Jiraiya. briefly pervs on Naruto (Japanese) "You! You're quite sexy when you're naked." (English) "You know... you have quite a tight sexy little body."
    • Kabuto/Orochimaru is nowhere near wholesome. It gets worse: Kabuto has absorbed Orochimaru's remains so Orochimaru is literally inside of Kabuto.
    • Kabuto/Naruto. Kabuto has a peculiar creepy fixation on Naruto and (in the anime) has called him "cute."
    • Hidan and Shikamaru. Just watch Hidan's reactions when he got Shikamaru alone in the woods. It almost felt like an Attempted Rape was about to go down. And Hidan looked to be almost orgasming after stabbing Shikamaru.
    • Naruto and Filler Villain Fuka. She makes quite a few suggestive comments to him and tries to kiss him while ignoring his personal space but we mustn't forget that she's actually just a living head of hair and that when she tries to kiss Naruto she's trying to suck his soul out.
    • Kabuto/Sasuke. In chapter 581 he attempted to get Sasuke to join him and said he'll be like a big brother to him and never leave his side after just attempting to eat him nonetheless. Lord, No Yay.
    • For some people who are not into Incest Yay Shipping, the quite popular Itachi/Sasuke and Neji/Hinata ships are this.
  • Trigun has a few similar cases with Vash and his Evil Twin Knives. Knives is one disturbed son of a bitch with a brother complex, and his introduction scene in the manga involves Full-Frontal Assault and looks like man-on-man rape.
  • Full Metal Panic!:
    • Gauron/Sousuke. The worst part is that the more you read, the squickier (and more canon) it becomes: yes, Gauron was planning to do that with Sousuke. Yes, he really did think those kinds of thoughts about him. And, yes, Sousuke was that age at the time he did...
    • In the Sigma manga, there's the backstory between Sousuke and Kalinin that... can have a lot of Ho Yay subtext (which is the unfortunate result of wearing those Slash Goggles too long). Unfortunately, again, Kalinin is way older than Sousuke, and is supposed to be his father figure. Just the whole way that Kalinin keeps going on and on about how Sousuke and him were "destined" to meet and be together, and how he gushes on about how they're inseparable. Then there's how guilty Kalinin felt towards Sousuke's beautiful mother... only for him to meet Sousuke again and see Sousuke be the spitting image of his mother. He then becomes obsessed with becoming a "happy family" with Sousuke. (It should be noted that Kalinin, unlike Gauron, first and foremost wanted his dead wife and baby back.)
    • The twins Yu Fan and Yu Lan and Gauron. He picked them up and it's heavily implied that he did stuff with them that made them feel that he loved them. But all in all, he isn't shy about showing that he only really seems to care about using them for his plans to ensnare Sousuke/kill Sousuke's love interest. It's made pretty clear to them that the only one he has eyes for is the 16-year-old boy he has an unhealthy obsession with. Despite all this, they are still so incredibly in love and pledge undying loyal to him. "Anything for Sensei" indeed.
    • In one episode of Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu, an elderly man thinks that Tsubaki and Sousuke are going to rape him. In his creepy envisioning of what he thinks is about to happen, roses are used as censors.
  • Berserk
    • Griffith's very possessive obsession with Guts... constantly telling Guts "You are mine"/"You belong to me." Trying to kill him to prevent him from leaving the Band Of The Hawks, visiting Princess Charlotte and having sex with her immediately after Guts left out of frustration and depression, and then, when the Eclipse goes down, after consigning his entire body of men to be eaten alive by demons and becoming Femto, planting a Forceful Kiss on Guts' Love Interest Casca before brutally raping her into insanity... forcing Guts to watch while he is doing so and deliberately staring straight into Guts's eyes the ENTIRE TIME he is doing that to Casca.
    • All those rapes or near-rapes in the series that various characters endure.
    • Rosine the "Elf Queen" and Jill, two minor characters in a story arc shortly after the Eclipse, given the age of the two and Rosine's rather disturbing Yandere obsession with Jill.
    • Princess Charlotte and her old father, the King of Midland. She looks identical to her mother, the Queen, which... caused some problems. Canonically, he ends up trying to rape her, after his rage that Griffith slept with her. This alienates her from her father to the point of disowning him and refusing to see him when he's on his deathbed, his health having seriously deteriorated because of the guilt of what he had done.
    • Slan's attraction to Guts. She's probably incapable of feeling love, being evil to the bone and all, so she seems to want to make Guts her personal sex toy. At one point, Slan decides to show up to taunt Guts in the Qliphoth. She decides to do this by appearing in front of him completely naked and acting as though they're having sex. This would be erotic, considering how beautiful and sexy Slan is... if it wasn't for the fact that the body she's in is made out of the internal organs of the hundreds of trolls that Guts has just slaughtered, they are surrounded by blood and gore, and she's impaling him with her hair.
  • Soul Eater
    • Ragnarok and Crona, especially since Ragnarok himself is only vaguely humanoid, looking like sort of muscular, demonic muppet. Unfortunately, the overtones are there, with Ragnarok acting extremely possessive of Crona, and constantly molesting and harassing him/her (pulling up his/her clothes, showing underwear).
    • Noah/Kid — while the original speculations of this turning into canon Nightmare Fuel seem to have been avoided (Noah's a joke, despite a promising start), the bondage suggestions and Noah's lasting first impression don't help. Gopher's no better with his rage against the shinigami.
    • Giriko/Maka with Giriko being way older than Maka and his intentions of wanting to rape and kill her.
    • Medusa, a very beautiful and cruel villainess. Medusa acting all seductive towards her old partner Stein? Mind Game Ship, Foe Yay and Interplay of Sex and Violence, if you're into that. Medusa acting all seductive towards her old partner Stein while in the body of a five-year-old little girl, which she possessed a short while ago ? No Yay. Chapter 22 has Medusa's armless torso crawling up onto Stein's back and attempting to bite his neck. Made even creepier when she whispers "I love you~" before he stabs her through the face with Death Scythe.
  • Hellsing has Alucard and everyone. He continually talks to Integra like he wants to rape her (or wants her to rape him), almost flirts with Anderson on top of their serious Foe Yay, and his slaughter of Rip Van Winkle was dripping with rape metaphors, complete with Rip moaning as he penetrated her with her gun.
  • Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru has Pedro's frequent attempts at raping the pretty-boy protagonist Minoru.
  • Kaguya Hime has lots of this. Some of Akira's admirers are very creepy, and Akira was her adoptive mother's lover.
  • Air Gear features a BDSM-type relationship between Arthur and Shalott, including a scene where they lay naked together. Another No Yay scene features Arthur pelvic thrusting against his opponent Agito and nibbling on his ear. Oh, and when Shalott straddles Agito at the end of one chapter and tells him after he tortures him via pulling out his teeth he can "have a lick" if he wants.
  • In Vampire Knight after noticing Yuuki's resemblance to her mother Juri, Yuuki's uncle Rido (who was in love with Juri) changed his plans from devouring Yuuki to keeping her as a substitute for Juri.
  • +Anima, despite that it's directed at kids 10+ , has Fly being creepily obsessed with Cooro. Not only does he spend the the entire 10 book series tracking all of Cooro's movements, but he refers to him as 'his Angel', and states that he'll 'never let him go'.
  • Cardcaptor Sakura:
    • Sonomi Daidouji is implied to be attracted to Sakura as a stand-in for Sakura's mother Nadeshiko, who was her cousin.
    • One episode has Sonomi manipulating events so that Sakura spends the day alone with Masaki Amamiya (Sonomi's grandfather) — but Sakura doesn't know it's her great-grandfather, and her immediate family didn't know where she was all day, so the subtext becomes incredibly unfortunate even if there weren't any actual devious intentions.
    • The third-grade student who is in love with and wants to marry her teacher, feelings which are reciprocated by the teacher. For what it's worth, he does agree to a Jail Bait Wait, and the anime changes it to a one-sided Precocious Crush.
  • Toyama and his father in Texhnolyze. It's made pretty blatant that Toyama was sexually abused by his father as a child, and even though he's a big, tough gangster now, his father still manages to extort sexual favours from him from time to time.
  • DN Angel
    • Hiwatari Sr has many, very creepy moments with Satoshi, his adopted son. From "I missed seeing your face" to "I'm doing this for you, my precious son" to "I don't want to lose you" to "One has to take good care of their tools" to a scene in Stage Four (manga volume 15) in which he forces Satoshi to transform while holding him down over a table — yes, the entire thing has very disturbing rape undertones.
    • Satoshi and his Super-Powered Evil Side Krad: Whenever we see the two together alone, it's generally Krad cuddling Satoshi from behind, or declaring that "You are my everything, Satoshi-sama." Would be incredibly sweet if not for the fact that Krad is also a homicidal blonde angel, who only really wants to take over Satoshi's body, as he's some kind of incorporeal spirit and Satoshi is his "host". Well. Hopefully that's all he means by it. Krad also tremendously enjoys reminding Satoshi that he (Satoshi) is not allowed to get close to anyone, and especially not his sworn enemy/best and only friend/possibly love interest.
    • In episode 25 Satoshi's adopted father calls Krad "my cute little servant" after Krad asks for them to get along.
  • Bleach:
    • Aizen claims to have been manipulating every event and battle in Ichigo's life, including the death of his mother, from the moment Ichigo was born. If true, this would go well beyond Stalker with a Crush and into Paranoia Fuel.
    • Gin/Rukia. It's canon that Gin scares the shit out of Rukia. When she was in Soul Society waiting her execution she stated that even if he wasn't talking to her she'd get this ominous feeling like "snakes were curling themselves around her" and she could feel "every bead of sweat" on her body whenever he was in her mere presence. And of course, there's the fact that Gin was a total asshole and told her that he would save her from being executed before squashing her hopes down flat.
    • Nnoitra/Orihime. It was made quite obvious in the Japanese version of the manga that he wanted to do that to her (something Ulquiorra calls him on), but then Kubo had to get all symbolic and subtext-y. Some of the subtext was toned down during the transition from manga to anime; for instance, where he shoves his fingers down Orihime's throat in the manga during Ichigo's fight with Tesra/Tesla, the anime has him cover her mouth with his hand.
    • Chapter 381 has this with Ichigo finally meeting Mayuri. Their interactions are... disturbing, to say the least. Ichigo appears to have merrily escaped Mayuri's wrath for now. But it looks like Mayuri now seems very interested in him - both because of Ichigo's happy comment which pissed him off, and because of Ichigo's potential.
    • There is an uncomfortable amount of this between Loly and Orihime. When not beating up or attempting to kill Orihime, Loly is stroking her hair, calling her "Orihime-chan" ("little Orihime"), invading her personal space, caressing her face, pinning her against walls, tearing her clothes...it's surprisingly easy to do Alternate Character Interpretation of Loly as a Depraved Bisexual targeting Orihime. In the manga, Loly planned to tear off Orihime's fingernails and rip out her eye as a way to torture her. Thankfully, she didn't get to do that.
  • In the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Compilation Movie Lagann-Hen, the Anti-Spiral King looms over Nia and moves towards her after it entangles her with tentacles, disintegrating her clothes before it begins disintegrating her.
  • Fullmetal Alchemist
    • The first anime has Dante, whose hitting on Ed in the final episodes belongs here for so very many reasons. 1) She's the Big Bad, he's The Hero. 2) She is, at the time that she begins hitting on him, inhabiting the rotting corpse of her former assistant. 3) She is plotting to Body Surf into the body of Rose, one of Ed's possible Love Interests, a Nice Girl who already experienced Rape as Drama and Teen Pregnancy (and has gone mute from it) in order to consummate the relationship. 4) Ed is her ex-boyfriend's son, and she is only doing this to be "loved by the son of Hohenheim." 5) Dante is four hundred years old, and inhabited the body of an old woman when we first met her, while Ed is 15. It's played for the level of disgust one would expect, and is yet another example of Dante cheerfully crossing the Moral Event Horizon.
    • Ed and Envy, who both hate each other and beat each other up at every opportunity. And are related. And while this may be subjective, there always seems to be some level of subtext between them whenever they fight. Why the hell does it always seem like Envy's flirting with Ed whenever he talks to him?
  • Black Butler
    • Baron Kelvin's obsession with Ciel. It's particularly disturbing since Baron Kelvin is a fat and old psycho who fell in love with Ciel when the latter was just seven years old.
    • And the strongly implied sex scene between Alois/Jim and his "father" the Earl Trancy in episode 8 of the second season.
      • Everything about the late Earl Trancy and his "doll" collection.
      • In episode 9 the Earl Trancy is seen briefly kissing the foot of the much younger Alois and later Ciel.
    • Sebastian and Ciel is considered Ho Yay by a lot of the fandom, but it can come off as Nightmare Fuel-tastic threats at times, since Sebastian is basically killing time until he gets to eat Ciel's soul.
    • Grell's crush on Sebastian, given she's a psychopath who talks within the same five minutes about wanting to cut Sebastian into pieces and bear his children.
  • In Ergo Proxy there's a scene wherein Raul Creed is threatening Daedalus into helping him, coming up quite close and, if memory serves, touching him on the face. Though both characters are attractive, the whole thing feels very much like rape, making it highly disturbing.
  • Tiger & Bunny: Maverick is really possessive of Barnaby to the point of drugging him, mindraping him several times and isolating him in his private mansion. Keep in mind the Power Perversion Potential of having memory-altering Next powers.
  • Code Geass
    • Episode 7 R2 has a creepy scene where Korczak, a Refrain drug dealer, saunters up to Lelouch and gently caresses his face with the back of his hand. In the English Dub he refers to Lelouch as "my dearest."
    • Episode 7 also features Rolo, Lelouch's "younger brother," getting really close to his face and acting like he's trying to kiss him.
    • Nina's feelings for Euphemia would be standard Les Yay if not for that gross scene in the anime where she masturbates using the corner of a table to pictures of her, or how she goes utterly batshit after Euphemia's death and makes the most disturbing facial expression ever.
    • V.V. very, very canonically killing his brother's wife because he was jealous of her stealing all his brother's love and attention. Keep in mind that V.V. is physically about 7. Also, Schneizel flirts with his sister Cornelia and acts very... strangely about his younger brother Lelouch, whom he refers to as "the man I most love... and fear." Gets worse when you realize Lelouch was 10 the last time Schneizel saw him face to face.
    • Mao's Yandere obsession with C.C. He listens to a recording of her voice to comfort him and he thinks it's alright to cut her up with a chainsaw in order to run away with her.
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion is rife with this, which is unsurprising given the cast. The only "safe" choices would be shipping secondary/tertiary characters with each other, only because they look normal in comparison.
    • The series does everything it can to imply that there is something going on between Gendo and Rei (a man in his 40s and a 14-year-old girl, respectively), not the least of which is Rei being a Replacement Goldfish for his dead wife, from whom she was partially cloned, and the fact that late in the series it's revealed that Gendo and Yui considered naming a potential daughter Rei, upping the incestuous subtext. As with everything from the series, End of Evangelion ramps this up by having Rei spend almost all her time around Gendo completely naked.
    • Misato and Shinji are basically a Gender Flipped Gendo and Rei. Made worse by the fact that in the movie she actually kisses him in an attempt to snap him out of a Heroic BSOD. It does not help.
    • Asuka and Shinji can fall into this at times, especially due to that scene in the movie where he masturbates over her comatose body.
    • In Shinji Ikari Raising Project, Gendo simply loves Shinji so dearly he wants to bear-hug him from behind or take a bath with him. Even without factoring in their relationship in the main series this is disturbing.
    • The director's cut of the anime also contains a scene where Asuka, a 14 year old girl, throws herself at Kaji, who's twice her age, out of desperation for attention, but he rebuffs her advances since even though he as a reputation as a Handsome Lech she's way too young for him. To make it worse it's implied that he served as a surrogate father figure for her after her mother's death.
  • Katekyo Hitman Reborn!
    • Chrome's Foe Yay with Glo Xinia. Consider how during Glo Xinia's fight with Chrome he grabbed her hard enough to cause her pain, kept getting in her face, and told her things like: "You seem to like being touched by men. Your blushing cannot betray your desires." "Give me MORE!" (after hearing her screams of pain) and "It's time to eat... that ring and you!" It's hinted he might've done something to her had Mukuro not shown up, allowing her time to escape. When fighting Mukuro he comes out with this line: "Is that girl so precious to you? Then I'm going to take my share of such a precious girl right before your eyes! This could just be the best situation, don't you think? My appetite for that girl just keeps getting better!" and "Don't worry Chrome, I will take good care of you for MUKURO TO SEE!"
    • In Episode 140/Chapter 226 TYL!Xanxus's indirect innuendo that he wants Tsuna. He only wants Vongola when it's at it's strongest. And when is it at it's strongest? When Tsuna is leading them. Can get a bit creepy when you realize this is a 34 year-old man (granted, in a 26 year-old body) talking about a 14 year-old boy.
    • Lussuria, who's openly gay, is insinuated to have necrophiliac tendencies as well. In his words his favorite bodies are the "wasted, cold, unmoving" ones. Ryohei goes topless during his fight against Lussuria and this only serves to make Lussuria his hardcore fanboy. Lussuria openly ogles Ryohei's muscular physique and refers to his body as "pretty nice," says that he's "just his type" and promptly decides to take him home and make him a part of his "collection"... after he's kicked the shit out of him that is. Fortunately Ryohei kicks his ass instead, so Lussuria pretty much failed at the endeavor.
  • Revolutionary Girl Utena
    • Siblings Akio and Anthy are established to regularly have sex - and it's a very unhealthy dubcon (at best) relationship, to say the least. The way it's portrayed in the movie version is no better: Akio drugged Anthy's drink and then took advantage of her sexually, later stabbing her out of panic after it turned out she was never actually asleep before falling out a window to his death.
    • The movie's no slouch when it comes to this trope, as it also shows that Touga was raped by his adoptive father as a child. Ugh.
    • And the sex scene between Akio and Utena in episode 33, given that she's only in eighth grade and he's way older than her, plus the dubious consent and... unsexy topic of discussion. You won't be thinking of sandwiches the same way again for a good while afterwards.
    • Just about all of Akio's sexual relationships are this trope. Besides the aforementioned incest with Anthy and sex scene with Utena, he has two further counts of statutory rape with Kozue (13) and Touga (17), plus he's sleeping with his fiancée's mother. Perhaps his least offensive relationship is with Tokiko, and even that's not saying much because the whole point of him seducing her was to spite Professor Nemuro and ultimately drive him to arson.
    • Kozue and Anthy's car scene in episode 26 is kind of creepy, since out of nowhere Kozue appears to start seducing a blank-faced Anthy in the car - in the middle of Miki's duel.
    • Kozue and Miki's entire relationship. They're twins, Kozue has tried to kiss Miki when he was asleep and when he's awake and has an unhealthy obsession with him. This leads to a scene in the movie when they're in the bath together and she holds a razor to his throat when he refused to tell her something about his personal affairs.
    • In one episode, Miki's piano teacher is hinted to have a less than savoury interest in him, and he's inappropriately touchy-feely with him when they talk. Kozue has clearly noticed, as it later turns out that she'd previously shoved the teacher down the stairs for it.
    • Nanami's obsession with her older brother Touga. She's a major Yandere for him and she once killed a kitten that she had gotten for him for his birthday because he paid more attention to it than her. He also suddenly tries to rape her in Akio's car at one point, which she fights off in horror, and he gets angry because if sex isn't what she wanted, then what does she want? Yikes.
  • Monster: The love and devotion that the Gonkish Roberto has for his boss Johan. Also, Johan's behavior towards his twin sister Anna is pretty darn creepy.
  • The (written after the Anime) Wolf's Rain Manga had a villain ( Lord Darcia 3rd) effectively Mind Raping the confused Half Blood bitchnote  Blue Yaiden in the latter chapters.
  • Wolf Guy - Wolfen Crest
    • Haguro has creepy Foe Yay towards Inugami. It's creepy because Haguro is ugly, nightmare fuel incarnate, and is Ax-Crazy.
    • The scene where Haguro decides to up his freakiness by kissing a battered Chiba, taking that opportunity to tear out his tongue, defecate on him and then rape him. All because Inugami happened to run into him in the street earlier. And that's even before what he and his Yakuza do to poor Aoshika-sensei.
    • Ryuuko's and Haguro's whole relationship.
  • Death Note
    • Higuchi and Misa's car scene. Higuchi is a Dirty Old Man and Misa is a young woman about half his age. After Higuchi proposes he looked about ready to rape her.
    • Ryuk (an ugly inhuman monster) and Light (a Bishōnen teenage boy that said monster had no small part in corrupting into becoming a mass murderer). Ryuk is always looming behind Light and is a very close talker when propositioning an exchange of bodyparts (...eyes). Ryuk follows Light EVERYWHERE, is often seen lounging around in Light's bed, and is always staring at Light with the rape grin. Plus, Ryuk only cares about how Light can entertain him. They are both extremely bored so who's to say what could happen... They live together for years 'til death do they part. There's more subtext in the manga—at one point Light tells Ryuk that he thinks he's cute, and then there's the scene where he's grabbing at Ryuk's belt when he's begging for his life.
    • Mello and mafia leader Rod Ross seem creepily close too. Bad because Mello was no older than 15 when he joined the mafia, and Word of God names Rod Ross as the most evil guy in the Death Note series.
    • Near/Light. Near is only a few years younger than Light but he looks like a child. From the moment Light first talks to Near he gets the feeling that he's talking to L. Near keeps calling and harassing Light at odd hours of the day and night and hanging up, has a habit of making some very unsettling facial expressions when thinking about what he's going to do with Light, and in the manga he wanted to KEEP Light. And when Near corners Light it's dripping with rape metaphors. Seriously, every line from the ending could be used in a rape scene and not seem out of place.
    • In the novel Death Note: Another Note, Beyond Birthday and his creepy obsession with L.
  • Nabari No Ou features a rather creepy scene where Hattori is practically hitting on Yoite - "You really are diligent and smart... as well as beautiful."
  • Loveless: Seimei is one hell of a creepy Yandere towards his brother Ritsuka.
  • Rune's feelings for Yamato in Karakuridouji Ultimo would be standard Ho Yay if Rune wasn't a creepy Yandere who's way smaller and Bishōnen looking than the more manly and downright huge Yamato, and that Rune almost resorts to Murder the Hypotenuse and If I Can't Have You tactics in order to have Yamato for himself and resorts to Attempted Rape in chapter 21. Chapter 10 has a rather nightmarish scene where Rune and Yamato are in mecha form. Rune has Yamato forcibly pinned down, in a manner that sends off some disturbing rape vibes, and talks about how it must be hurting Yamato.
  • Black Lagoon
    • The incestuous relationship between Creepy Twins Hansel and Gretel, made worse by them being young children who gleefully torture and murder people. Strangely, instead of being used to horrify, their relationship is the only thing that humanises them, and turns out to be rather sweet in comparison to everything else.
    • The scene where Gretel disarms Eda in Episode 15; after the first grope (feeling for her gun holster, so it's justified), she gropes her again, this time lifting up part of tank top and grabs a nice handful of Eda's cleavage while her voice drops an octave.
    • After Jane suggests she might make a pass on Rock, Revy's reaction is not to make a death threat as would be expected from someone hitting her Berserk Button about him, but to say this. It comes off as quite creepy, as not only does it shed some rather unsettling light on Revy's prison experience, but Revy here is basically threatening to make Jane her bitch.
  • Depraved Homosexual Jakotsu has a crush on the titular InuYasha. He mostly wants to torture and possibly rape Inuyasha to death.
  • Get Backers: Takuma Fudou's one-sided obsession towards Ban. After Ban ripped his arm off, Fudou became totally obsessed with him, keeping his own rotting, maggot-infested arm with him just so he can remind himself of Ban - which made him feel "incredible chills rising up throughout his body". His passionate dialogue towards Ban includes how he has a "throbbing desire" to kill him, as well as screaming for Ban to "give his body to him," "meet his desires," "quench his thirst and let him enjoy himself." And when Ban starts worrying about his Heterosexual Life Partner Ginji, Fudou gets pissed. "What are you looking at?! Look at me, Takuma Fudou!!" In the Birth Arc Fudou reveals his dislike for Ginji, coming straight out and saying that it's because "when you're around, Midou doesn't even notice me. Midou's eyes are not on me... because you're around!". He then proceeds to try to kill Ginji so that Ban will pay more attention to him. Fudou gets very restless and excited, and feels a great "desire", wondering what it is about this day that he senses is so exciting. It then cuts to Ban sneezing, and exclaiming happily that a big breasted babe must be thinking about or talking about him. Fudou tells Ban that his mind goes blank whenever he sees him, and he can't remember anything other than trying to make Ban give his body to him and meet his desires. He also got majorly pissed at both Hevyn and Shido for interfering with his fight with Ban, and for Hevyn gently putting a shirt on the half naked Ban (an act which seemed to piss him off to the point where he went berserk).
  • Descendants of Darkness
    • The incredible amount of Ho Yay Muraki aims at the main character becomes really weird when we discover that his goal is to put his dead brother's head on Tsuzuki's body. Muraki is also an insane Depraved Bisexual who raped and murdered Hisoka.
    • Hisoka and Tsuzuki are standard Ho Yay except for that one scene in the anime where a possessed Tsuzuki attacks Hisoka with a knife.
  • D.Gray-Man
    • Tyki's subtext with Allen is very disturbing, because Tyki has tried to kill Allen numerous times and has destroyed his Innocence.
    • Road is quite attractive but she's also quite a frightening sadistic Yandere with a crush on Allen. Plus, it's been revealed that she's older than him and might be related to him.
  • No6
    • In chapter 6 a ominous greasy ugly old corpse collector comes up to Sion (a younger Bishōnen Nice Guy) and hits on him saying "You're very pretty like a doll" and promises him meat and drink.
    • A top No 6 official makes unwanted advances on Dogkeeper in one scene because he thinks she's a prostitute. He also hits on Nezumi.
  • Good lord, do Akagi and Uozumi have this in Slam Dunk. It's been mentioned that Uozumi talks about defeating Akagi everyday and from what we've seen, this is probably not an exaggeration. He almost instantly took an interest in Akagi when he first saw him, cheered him on during the Kainan game, and his rivalry with him is his main motivation for improving. Even after quitting basketball he still travels all the way to Hiroshima just to see Akagi play and even gives him advice in the middle of a game. On Akagi's side he considers Uozumi the better player (despite what everyone else says) and has a great deal of respect for him. Their relationship is even mocked at times, such as when they hug and cry on each other's shoulder, only to show that they're both far too ugly for this to be anything but Fan Disservice.
  • Gankutsuou: Andrea seducing and bedding his own mother, then attempting to rape his half sister. At one point he even implies that he's even going to rape Haidee, however the count steps in and nothing actually happens.
  • Legend of the Blue Wolves features Captain Continental/anyone but especially his lusting after Jonathan who he beats up and eventually rapes.
  • Durarara!!: Izaya, being quite attractive is still quite a Jerkass and has moments like this with the girls he almost convinces to commit suicide. After one of them breaks into his hospital room and tries to kill him, he hugs her tightly while thanking her and telling her how much he loves her. Of course, it's plain creepy in context.
  • Kinjiro and Nagato from Airmaster. Nagato is quite unattractive and Kinjiro is attractive. Nagato says he wants to have Kinjiro's babies and asks him for a kiss which he reluctantly gives to take the pain of an injury away.
  • Devil May Cry: The Animated Series: The Prison Warden hits on Dante in one scene.
  • Osanai's obsession with Paprika. Also, his implied relationship with the Chairman, who is an ugly old guy.
  • Mawaru-Penguindrum
    • Episode 14. Two cute girls (Yuri and Ringo) bonding and spending a whole day together in an onsen? Oh yes, please. A mentally-broken Yuri drugging up Ringo, stripping both of them naked and then trying to rape her, while mentally repeating how much she hates herself due to her body issues and loneliness? Definitely not sexy.
    • Yuri's father and Yuri, as revealed in Episode 15. He carves her body with a chisel to make her "look beautiful" and be worthy of his love, while repeatedly telling her that she's ugly and he can't love ugly things. And this is not counting all of the hints that he sexually abused Yuri as well.
  • In Märchen Awakens Romance we have Alviss/Phantom. Normally, with the Phantom's attempts to kiss Alviss and his obsession with him and lack of personal space around him you'd think this would just be Guy-on-Guy Is Hot but not when Phantom brainwashes Alviss into staying by his side forever, licks the tears from his face and attempts to kill him. The Phantom is also clearly insane.
  • Mahou Sensei Negima! features secondary villain Tsukuyomi. She starts as a mere Punch Clock Villain with shades of Psychopathic Manchild and a crush on her ex-sempai Setsuna Sakurazaki, but as time passes, she becomes really, *really*, creepily obsessed with Setsuna. And also seems to derive sexual pleasure from murder. Plus, there's the fact that it was heavily implied that she was going to rape Setsuna when she hit Setsuna with a Clothing Damage spell, followed by pinning her on the ground, and slowly and deliberately cutting off Setsuna's Sarashi bra. Coming from a bespectacled little blonde Yandere in a frilly Victorian gown makes this even more creepy.
  • Koharu No Hibi: Koharu's obsession with Akira. Her actions vary from affectionate (wanting to hold hands constantly) to creepy (the infamous recorder sucking scene, the scene where she sucked on his discarded bottle of tea, licking a picture of him on her phone) to downright bizarre (being disappointed that their literal viewpoints are not exactly the same).
  • Shugo Chara!, where famous Idol Singer Utau Hoshina forcefully kisses the mysterious cat-boy Ikuto Tsukuyomi, much to the shock and horror of Amu, Kukai and their Charas (to quote Ran, "It's an adult's world!"). Worse, she's his sister.
  • Mr. Kimura's obsession with high school girls in Azumanga Daioh. In particular his obsession with Kaorin.
  • YuYu Hakusho
    • Karasu spends the last parts of the Dark Tournament coming on to Kurama; "Human bodies are so frail... I know you fear what my touch could do to you... yet maybe you also want to know it." All this while stroking his hair from behind. He also wants to own Kurama and considers torturing and killing him slowly the most intimate way of doing so.
    • The Big Bad of the next story arc Shinobu Sensui is seen taking the Game Master, Amanuma, to dinner, coming to his house and the next scene is him with black angel wings wrapped around Amanuma who is nuzzling his head into his arms. Considering Amanuma is about 9 or 10 years old and its heavily implied that Sensui had spent the night...
  • Creed's obsession with Train in Black Cat. He spies on him sleeping in one scene, tries to kill him, kills his friend Saya and tries to kill his Heterosexual Life Partner Sven, as well as saying that he'd rather have him by his side as a dead body rather than let Saya have him.
  • Koyomi and his sister Karen in Bakemonogatari. One notable scene being when he gets on top of her in bed when brushing her teeth which causes her to act like she's having an orgasm the entire time while moaning.
  • Maki/Amber from Darker Than Black. Maki is a sociopathic creepy Child Soldier with Social Darwinist tendencies, who acts like a Stalker with a Crush towards his boss to a point he ties to Murder the Hypotenuse. Amber, on the other hand, is an adult woman in a body of a teenage girl and she becomes younger and younger as she uses her powers finally turning into a little girl and then disappearing completely. She is also a Manipulative Bitch with an Omniscient Morality License and an ability to see the future. Which means she knows Maki is going to die and chooses to do nothing about it, because it would ruin her plan and lead to a destruction of all Contractors.
  • Tsubaki of Future Diary, while beautiful, is a messed up in the head rape victim who forcefully tongue kisses Yuki to stick it to Yuno.
  • Gate 7 has Iemitsu's interaction with Sugihime, a girl he kipnapped for her Seer ability and her being under his forceful control, all bounded in a seal stained with the blood of his Oni's victims, and avoided his Oni eating her just because she's a tool to victory. All this and constantly telling her how cute she is and that he likes her, specially anytime she wishes him dead and insults him.
  • Dragon Ball Z:
    • Gero's... assault of Piccolo. Gero snuck up on Piccolo from behind, wrapped his legs around his waist, held a hand over his mouth so he couldn't call for help, and whispered in Piccolo's ear as he forcibly drained the energy from his body. The whole moment came off extraordinarily like a rape scene.
    • When Gero and Android 19 attacked Yamcha, complete with Gero covering Yamcha's mouth and then stabbing him through the chest with his hand. Lots of disturbing rape vibes there too.
    • Cell's obsession with absorbing Androids 17 and 18 so he can become perfect. He absorbs them with that phallic tail of his and it gets really creepy really fast. In the English dub (not sure about the Japanese version) Cell uses pick-up lines on them both before he absorbs them while getting his rape-face on. He tells 17 that he is "amazingly efficient" and tells 18 that she's "poetry in motion".
  • From Baccano! we have every single interaction between the immortal ten-year-old Czeslaw and his also immortal former guardian, Fermet. The latter is later revealed to have been a psychotic Torture Technician who enjoyed making poor Czeslaw suffer For the Evulz, not to mention being eternally ten or twenty years his senior and giving off major pederast vibes.
  • In Kemono no Souja Erin there is a relationship between Damiya and Seimiya. First of all, he is her uncle. Secondly, he is a creepy Smug Snake, who killed her grandmother.
  • At one point in Shiki, there's a flashback to the childhood of Beady-Eyed Loser Masao, which many fans have taken to imply that he had a crush on his sister-in-law Chizuko—despite being roughly seven years old (and a Creepy Child) at the time the flashback took place.
  • Ragyo Kiryuin in Kill la Kill is really touchy feely with her daughters Satsuki and Ryuko, with one scene in episode 13 where she fondles Satsuki being very uncomfortable, especially since Satsuki's lack of reaction implies it's a regular occurrence, followed by an even more blatant scene in episode 16 where she molests her when they're bathing together under the pretense of "purifying" her. One episode opens with Ragyo having an apparent threesome with Nui (whose relationship with her is also dripping with Incest Subtext to the point of calling Ragyo "mama") and Ryuko, her other daughter who she discarded as an infant after the latter appeared to fail during her experiments. The scene might be a metaphor for the Mind Rape they're inflicting on Ryuko, which probably makes it worse.
  • In Birdy the Mighty: Decode a number of comments that Shyamalan makes about Sayaka, and the way he treats her when they're alone together, suggest that he may have feelings for her—despite the fact that he's an adult corporate executive and she's a high-schooler (and also that he, you know, wants to use the super weapon Sayaka is playing host to to wipe out most of humanity).
  • Noein pretty much is this trope toward Haruka. When he finally reveals his true form to her, he variously drapes his arms around her shoulders and touches her face, and at one point he asks her to "become one" with him to further his plan. He's naked too, except for the white covering he normally wears but has mostly removed by this point. What makes this all the worse is that Noein is one version of Haruka's love, Yuu, from the future, who had gone mad with grief after losing her in a car crash—but in present circumstances he's still much older than her, and evil, and she's twelve.

    Comic Books 
  • The Superman comics provide quite a few examples; Clark Kent and Lori Lemaris (a mermaid), Superman and Supergirl, Comet the freaking SUPER-HORSE and Supergirl, and Krypto and Lana Lang in at least one story. Then there's the not infrequent subtext between Supes and Lex Luthor, which becomes even more blatant when you realize that Superboy was made of a combination of their DNA.
  • Batman and The Joker get some (or lots) of Foe Yay Depending on the Writer, with the Joker almost in love with Batman in his own twisted way. Canonically, the Joker wants to sexually violate Batman's corpse.
  • Johnny C. and Jimmy a.k.a. "Mmy". Jimmy is quite unattractive and has a rather unhealthy obsession with what Johnny does. Johnny hates his guts because Jimmy attempted to replicate his style of murder by choosing his targets along with raping and killing a girl in [[Asexuality Johnny's name]].
  • In-universe in Secret Six: Black Alice and Ragdoll. Black Alice's attraction to Ragdoll and the lengths she goes to start a relationship with him squicks out everyone on the team. Including Ragdoll.
  • The Ultimates gets in- and out-of-universe No Yay by taking the Brother-Sister Incest Subtext between Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch from the main Marvel universe and making it official. When Captain America voiced his disgust and got chewed out by Wasp out for being behind the times, readers were apparently meant to side with Wasp. They did not.
  • In the Angel comics, Illyria (an ancient God-King who stole the body of one of Angel's friends, killing her in the process) decides that Connor (Angel's 19-year-old son) would be an acceptable person to procreate with, since it's her mating season. Angel is not pleased and neither is Connor.
  • Mr Sinister has an obsession with Cyclops' genes that would normally lead to Foe Yay, except for the fact that Scott lived in Sinister's Orphanage of Fear as a young boy (from around the age of eight) and underwent Mind Rape and experiments from the supervillain. As Sinister's treatment of Adult Cyclops is incredibly homoerotic, and a large amount of their interactions involve him touching his face and gazing at it admiringly, it becomes very hard not to think that he did the same when Scott was in his care.

    Fanfiction 
  • Luminosity: The pedophilia inherent in the Addy/five-year-old Elspeth shipping meant the author actually changed the chapter break to avoid it in the future. The original ending line of chapter 14 was:
  • The Supernatural fanfic Deterioration of Reason has the demon Belial, who is not afraid to tell Castiel or anyone else how much he would love to ravish and devour Castiel. He clearly enjoys torturing Castiel and after injecting demon blood into him, Belial taunts him how he was inside of him. Oh and Belial was once an archangel and hence Castiel's older brother.
  • Imperfect Metamorphosis has Yuuka Kazami and her... affections towards Team 9. Wriggle, who has apparently experienced it before, is horrified the entire time, but the others don't seem to understand the danger (aside from the obvious).
  • Inner Demons has Twilight Sparkle acting this way towards her brother, Shining Armor, after he gets consumed by her darkness and becomes Queen!Twilight. This is hammered home when he rejects her advances and decides to rescue Princess Cadence instead.
  • Even the author/artist of Legendary Destination is squicked by the amount of subtext some people see between Jazz Fenton and the older-evil-alternate-future-self of her little brother aka Dark Danny/Dan. To the point of prefacing all of the pictures with them both in it with "they are not a couple!"

    Film - Animated 
  • Throughout the Toy Story series, most toys abandoned by their owners behave like rejected or jilted lovers. The song "When She Loved Me" in Toy Story 2 is, as the title suggests, a love song out of context (and just a bit in context, too).
  • In Rango, Rattlesnake Jake disturbingly behaves in a somewhat molester-ish manner towards Beans, coiling around her and licking his face. That's really creepy.
  • Frollo's sexual obsession with Esmerelda in The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
  • Aladdin: Jafar and Jasmine. Jafar is old and ugly and Jasmine is a young beautiful princess. Jafar wants to marry Jasmine (to gain the powers of the sultan but still...) and Jasmine has to kiss him in one scene to try to keep him from discovering Aladdin. Jafar orders the Genie to make Jasmine fall in love with him, and calls her "pussycat" and "my dear". Iago (who suggested the idea of Jafar marrying Jasmine in the first place) and Abu both make disgusted sounds when Jasmine kisses Jafar, and Aladdin also looks Squicked out.
  • A Troll in Central Park has Stanley, the titular troll, getting a kiss from a toddler girl named Rosie. He literally flies into the air screaming with joy and some green energy coming from his lower regions. Yeah...
  • Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope were erroneously referred to as love interests in early media reports. Then it turned out she was a kid. And the size of his (very large) fist. And basically his sister/daughter character.
  • In Despicable Me, Vector's flirty attitude toward Gru and Gru's obsession with outclassing him starts off as just regular old Foe Yay. It crosses the line into this trope, however, when Vector keeps this up after he kidnaps Gru's children and holds them hostage.
  • Devon and Cornwall, two heads of the same dragon, in Quest for Camelot, particularly at the very end of the movie. There's also the implication that their parents were married cousins.
    Devon: Frankly, we're the reason cousins shouldn't marry.
  • Rise of the Guardians: Pitch Black's obsession with Jamie and the other children towards the end of the film can come across as very molester-ish, especially the tone of voice with which he taunts and threatens them. This vibe is also present in the earlier scene where he enters Cupcake's room and essentially inserts himself into her dreams.

    Film - Live Action 
  • Blue Velvet: Psycho drug-addicted gangster rapist Frank Booth/innocent wholesome college boy Jeffrey Beaumont. With Frank of course being the supplier of the depraved Ho Yay.
    Frank: (to Jeffrey) Pretty... pretty... pretty... pretty... Pretty!
  • The Christof/Truman subtext from The Truman Show.
    Christof: (To Truman) You're afraid. That's why you can't leave. It's okay, Truman. I understand. I have been watching you your whole life. I was watching when you were born. I was watching when you took your first step. I watched you on your first day of school. Heh heh. The episode when you lost your first tooth, heh heh... You can't leave, Truman. You belong here... With me. Talk to me. Say something.
  • This song from Pete's Dragon is undertone-a-riffic, between Pete and his enormous, unintelligible, animated dragon. A touching friendship ballad needn't be Ho Yay-riffic, but the use of phrases like "Remember the night when you first confided" make the whole thing sound excessively romantic.
  • It depends how you feel about demons and the such, but the ending of REC2 has some Les Yay between the horribly mutated possessed girl, Medeiros, and Angela the reporter, when the former kisses the latter in order to transfer the worm demon.
  • Nuada and Nuala in Hellboy II. They're Half-Identical Twins with Twin Telepathy and Synchronization, which makes it nigh-impossible for Nuala to hide herself and the MacGuffin from her villainous brother, no matter how much she wants to. Then along came Nuada's "Father tried so hard to shield your heart from mine." Even worse, Word of God says that all that incestuous subtext was intentional. That sort of thing isn't unusual in real life Irish myth.
  • Happens in-story in Thirteen, when Mason Freeland walks into a store with a friend, and the two of them see a pretty girl in low-rise jeans and visible thong panties leaning over the counter, facing away from them. Mason calls out to her: "Oh sweetie, back that ass up," while his friend adds "I'd like to see how that thong looks on my bedroom floor." When she turns around, they see that the girl is, in fact, Mason's little sister Tracy. Mason is clearly horrified, while his friend continues to hit on her.
  • Transformers: Dark of the Moon has this between Soundwave and Carly. He does exclusively assault her with his menagerie of spiky, metallic tentacles, and lets them linger over her for a disturbingly long time before Sam agrees to Gould's terms...and this is after masquerading as her car and having her ass on his seat for Primus-knows-how-long! And if that weren't enough, there's his declaration of, "You're mine!" once he transforms and reveals himself to her.
  • Marissa's obsession with Hanna. In addition, some of Hanna's interactions with Erik come off as romantic.
  • The sheer number of times Albert stares into Joey the horse's eyes while touching his head in War Horse has overtones of this. It's vaguely referenced within the movie.
    David: Are you writing a love letter to your horse?
  • Annie Wilkes and Paul Sheldon in Misery, especially in the book. She's an ex-nurse Loony Fan of the disillusioned writer who saved him from a car crash and slowly nurses him back to health. It's eventually revealed that Annie has killed several of her patients, and her mood constantly swings between cheerful and psychotic. It culminates with Annie amputating Paul's leg.
    Annie Wilkes: I'm your number one fan....
  • Rippner and Lisa in Red Eye. Rippner is a Ax-Crazy murderer out to kill Lisa's father and other people and even Lisa herself. There's some sexual tension between the two and the scene in the airplane bathroom where he accosts her was dripping with rape metaphors. Word of God also says that Rippner developed feelings for Lisa in the entire time he was watching her and that he was jealous of the man who gave Lisa her scar and raped her.
  • Star Wars:
    • Palpatine's interest in Anakin comes off a little... intense. He looks at the kid like he's this close to eating him, his manipulation of Anakin is quite like a seduction, and practically creams in his pantaloons when saying lines like "I can feeeeeeeeeel your anger!" Even Obi-Wan says Anakin was "seduced by the dark side". The novelization of Revenge of the Sith takes this to the limit, with Palpatine purposefully distancing Anakin from Padme and Obi-Wan in order to have him all to himself.
    • There's a bit of this between Palpatine and Luke, too. "Take your father's place at my side," indeed.
    • While Leia's metal bikini is well loved by Star Wars fans everywhere, most like to forget that she wears it because she was forced to by the colossal crime lord Jabba the Hutt, and the scene leading up to it has him lick her face (Leia, for her part, is horrified and disgusted).
      • The novels establish that other Hutts think Jabba is a pervert for being attracted to humanoid women (and also, as one character implies, Han Solo.) Of course, after he became powerful and influential, a few Hutts tried to emulate him by keeping harems of slave girls. Opinions were mixed.
    • Pre-Return of the Jedi, some fans had made arguments for Luke/Leia. Played with in that after their kiss in The Empire Strikes Back, we find out that they are related.
  • The 2003 Peter Pan film had several reviewers comment on the creepy chemistry/dynamic between Hook and Wendy. Word of God says it was unintentional, but even they acknowledge it's there. Incidentally, Hook and Wendy's father are played by the same actor (as recommended by the stage directions in the original play) for extra Freudian Squick value.
  • The Helen Hirsh / Amon Goth subtext in Schindlers List. He is the camp commandant of a Nazi concentration camp, a complete sociopath, and a sadistic mass murderer. She is one of the Jewish inmates, who was forced to become his maid. He secretly desires her even though he wants to see her people exterminated. At one point he nearly (creepily) comes on to her, but he decides to beat her up instead, blaming her for trying to "seduce" him. Some of the fans think that his love for her could have redeemed him. This ignores the fact that he sees her more as property than as a human being.
  • Alien: Resurrection features a scene where an Alien is holding Ripley in its arms and carrying her to the Queen's lair. She's not afraid of it, and embraces the creature. The sequence is shot and framed as if it were a love scene. Now remember that the Aliens are an Always Chaotic Evil race of utterly inhuman alien monsters that face-rape people and have killed almost everyone that Ripley ever knew or loved.
  • Frank's sexual behavior with Jill in Once Upon a Time in the West.
  • Kick-Ass 2: Dave and Mindy kissing, to fans of the comic book where Mindy is still 12 years old while in the film she's 15. Invoked in-universe, when Katie and her friend think Mindy is breaking up with Dave, they both call him a pedophile.
  • Jareth/Sarah from Labyrinth. Nearly-40 David Bowie in criminally tight pants asking 16-year old Jennifer Connelly to stay with him forever. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. And according to Jim Henson it was 100% intentional.
    David Bowie embodies a certain maturity, with his sexuality, his disturbing aspect, all sorts of things that characterize the adult world.

    Literature 
  • Harry Potter
    • The title character and Voldemort. Their souls are connected, they share each other's dreams, memories and thoughts, Voldemort sometimes gets into Harry's head as a whispering voice of temptation, Voldemort's described as a very charismatic and seductive figure (who used to be physically dashing, before the dark arts corrupted his appearance) and a big deal's made about their fates being intertwined. It certainly doesn't help that Ralph Fiennes, who played Voldemort in The Film of the Book, is Mr. Fanservice beneath the makeup. Now, just remember that Voldemort is a sociopath who murdered Harry's parents and tried to kill him as a baby, that he looks and talks like a humanoid serpent and that he is, by most estimates, around 70 years old.
    • It should also be noted that their wands are, ahem, connected. Harry's even makes Voldemort's spurt out magic when they have a duel with them.
    • This is hinted at with Diary/ Horcrux! Tom Riddle and Possessed!Ginny. There's certainly Mind Rape involved, and he forces her to tell him all her secrets and do things she doesn't want to do. As she mentions in Order of the Phoenix, the mental scars have remained with her. This has been picked up on by the fandom, who often point to the events of Chamber of Secrets as one of the reasons for how she repeatedly Took a Level in Badass in the subsequent books.
    • In The Film of the Book, during their "girl talk" Bellatrix pins Hermione to the floor and it looks like she's raping her. She also tortures her by carving the word "Mudblood" into her arm.
  • The Vampire Chronicles:
    • Louis/Claudia. Claudia is trapped inside the body of a five-year-old (eleven-year-old in the movie), and one of Louis' first descriptions of her in the book as a vampire (while she is still mentally a child) talks of her appearance being slightly sensual. Lolicon much, Louis?
    • The Vampire Lestat: After turning his mother, Gabrielle, the nature of their relationship changed from parent/child to hinting they were lovers. There was more subtle subtext when they were still humans, but it got worse after the change. Lestat going on and on about how sexy she looked in men's clothing and them discussing the possibility of vampire sex didn't help matters.
  • A Song of Ice and Fire:
  • In the movie version of The Chronicles of Narnia, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, there is a scene where Edmund gets tempted by evil and glares darkly at Lucy, trying to lure her into becoming the most powerful person in the world along with him. Or as some fans put it: "he looks at her like he wants to do something else."
    • The whole White Witch/Edmund and Tumnus/Lucy thing, both cases reminding some of child kidnappers/molesters' cases.
    • In the third part, the White Witch tells Edmund she can make him her king.
  • Count Olaf/Violet from A Series of Unfortunate Events. The first book alone has bucket loads of No Yay subtext, what with Count Olaf planning on marrying her and later consummating his relationship with his 14 year old adopted daughter. While Olaf didn't seem to have anything sexual in mind primarily, he decides that he'll let her live even after he has the fortune and makes quite a few comments on how pretty she is. In the next book he has a knife to her THIGH under the table. There's the line "Violet imagined sleeping beside Count Olaf, and waking up each morning to look at this terrible man.", which shows the author must have known what that would imply to his older readers. And when the hook-handed man has Violet cornered in the tower during the rescue attempt for Sunny, he says into his walkie-talkie "Yes, boss. Yes, boss, of course I understand she's yours, boss." The emphasis is the author's.
  • Hannibal Lecter/Will Graham in Red Dragon. Made worse in the movie adaption: "Do you dream much, Will? I think of you often."
  • Wicked Lovely brings us this between Donia, the cursed Wintergirl, and Beira, the queen who left her that way. It's subtle, but Beira stroking Don's face while blackmailing her into killing Keenan is one of the creepiest things in the series... and given the places later books go, that's saying somethiing!
  • In Death: Renee Obermann and William Garnet have a relationship that is just loaded with this. At one point, she tells him to walk her out like a good boy, sounding like she's treating him like a dog. Much later, he shows up at her place, looking all furious. He shoves her into her apartment and she tells him to not put his hands on her again. He responds that he'll do more than put his hands on her. It is revealed that she had sexual relationship with him at one time, and she broke it off, because that was her way to establish control over him.
  • In the Outlander series, there's Captain John Randall towards Jamie. At first, it's more subtle Foe Yay, mostly consisting of Randall having a dreamy look on his face every time Jamie shows defiance and resistance towards him, culminating in Dougal describing Randall's look as a guy who's hot on a girl. And then, Randall shows that these impulses actually extend to being out-and-out sexual, revealing his desire for Jamie to "become his"... which eventually results in poor Jamie getting imprisoned, raped, and beaten (as part of certain scenario that Randall is into) repeatedly. It gets worse when Randall is actually revealed to have probably been genuinely in love with him, in his own messed up way.
  • In Peter Moore's "Caught In The Act" we have Lydia's Yandere obsession with Ethan.
  • The Catcher in the Rye: The infamous passage in which Mr. Antolini strokes the forehead of a sleeping Holden. Even Holden himself is rather disturbed, fleeing Mr. Antolini's house right afterwards. Antolini's inquiries about Holden's girlfriends and calling Holden "handsome" as he wishes him goodnight could be read as flirtatious advances as well.
  • Michael Grant loves using this trope with perverted sadist Drake Merwin in the GONE series. Most of these never culminate in anything sexual, and some aren't even used in a sexual context, but he's made it pretty damn easy to take out of context.
    Sam: Me...You Want me! Drake: Yes Sam, I want you. And you're just going to lie there and take it! Because if you don't....
    Drake: I broke her legs so she couldn't run. She was screaming...But I think she liked it.
    Drake: Oh hey Astrid. Wait a sec, I'll be right back. Then I can come up and play.
    "He'd take his sweet time with Astrid. And even longer with Diana."
  • The Ciaphas Cain short story "The Beguiling" has the Slaaneshi Chaos witch Emeli attempt to psychically seduce Cain and eat his soul, which would have happened if Cain hadn't come to his senses in time and killed her. Except in Traitor's Hand she comes back as a Daemon Princess of Slaanesh (For reference, here's an old daemon princess from the Horus Heresy named Ingethel who seems to be associated with Slaanesh) and she still wants him. Cain is predictably squicked out of his mind.

    Live Action TV 
  • Firefly
    • An extremely creepy one-way version of this between Jubal Early and River. Pretty much all of his lines regarding her can easily be interpreted as sexual in nature, and that's before you factor in the rape threats. Not to mention River's line, "You crawl inside me uninvited," which does NOT help things.
      • A decent case can be made for River and anyone on the show. She's seventeen years old, traumatized and brain damaged, and the extent to which she improved after the events of the movie is unclear.
    • Crosses the line from subtext to text in the case of Kaylee, to whom he coldly threatens rape as something he neither desires nor undesires, just a thing that he will do if she doesn't cooperate.
    • Hilariously, this is how the entire crew reacts to the prospect of Mal/Zoe. Even the shockingly crude, meat head mercenary Jayne. ("Now, somethin' 'bout that is just downright unsettlin'.") Even Mal and Zoe themselves react this way.
  • Willow and VampWillow on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Had Willow not shot her, VampWillow (who's not only a vampire, but also creepily insane) was well on her way toward forcing the issue, which doesn't help the playful subtext that continues afterward.
    • And on Angel adult Cordelia has sex with the teenage son of the man she's in love with. As the said man watches (although she didn't know).
  • Supernatural
    • Dean and Sam run into the prophet Chuck, who's been unwittingly writing books about the brothers' adventures. They're understandably nauseated to find out that some fans ship them together, particularly Dean, who raised Sam from childhood.
    Dean: That's sick.
  • Dexter: Dexter and the Icetruck Killer, both serial killers obsessed with murder almost to a sexual level, and both brothers. Which was toned down for the TV series; the novel was even more blatant.
  • Farscape's Crichton/Scorpius and their blatant subtext falls between this and Fan Disservice. Hell, Scorpius/Anyone. There's even a sex scene at one point involving him and a woman with what look like twitching spider legs coming out of her head. And then there's all the Scorpius/Braca subtext...
  • KC and Coach Carson from Degrassi The Next Generation during Heart Like Mine Part 1 and 2. KC is fifteen and Coach Carson is his basketball coach. The guy does several creepy things. First, he gives KC the room key for his hotel room, so he can make out with Jenna, and then he walks in on them, saying, "Don't mind me." He also takes off his shirt a couple times in front of KC and invades his personal space, touching his shoulders a lot. Later, he gives KC beer and watches PORN with him. During the next episode, he shows him his gun, but the worst part is when he hires a prostitue to "help" KC get laid — pretty much insinuating that he wanted to have a threesome with KC and the hooker. When KC calls him a pervert, he replies by saying, "I didn't touch you!"
  • Star Trek: Deep Space Nine has the dubious honor of sporting a case of No Yay so intense that the actress herself took issue with it and stopped it cold. The producers wanted Dukat, a mass-murdering war criminal, romantically paired up with Kira, the former freedom fighter whose people were the target of his genocide, and so subtext started appearing all over the place. Nana Visitor protested the move so vehemently that the planned storyline was soon dropped and they wound up as even worse enemies. So the producers revealed that Kira's mother was Dukat's lover.
    Nana Visitor: Playing Kira, I can't even entertain the thought. It's too disgusting.
  • Horatio Hornblower has, in the first episode, the very creepy Inquisition scene in which Simpson gets a couple of other midshipmen to pin Horatio to a table, then leans in way too close to him and asks him what his "dirty little secret" is, starting with "A fancier of other boys, perhaps?" Additionally, there's a lot of subtext and hints dropped ("You don't know half of what he's capable of"; "Jack's missed you, boy"; etc.) that before Horatio arrived, Simpson was sexually abusing Archie. Which of course just makes the Inquisition that much worse.
  • In one episode of Friends, during part of an I Know You Know I Know type Gambit Pileup, it's Monica and Chandler versus everyone else (except Ross). Chandler and Monica want to keep their relationship secret, but Joey, Phoebe, and Rachel want them to reveal it. It comes down to Phoebe and Chandler trying to "seduce" each other, despite the fact that neither of them wanted to seduce the other. Eventually, they both lean in for the kiss, and it's plain on their faces that they do not want to. It's hilarious.
  • LOST: The season five finale gives us hints of Ben/Jacob, which is disturbing on so many levels.
  • Oz had a few of these. Keller/Schillinger in particular is a good example with the kiss Keller gives Schillinger at one point considering that Schillinger is a creepy ugly old rapist and Keller a Depraved Bisexual murderer. Also Beecher/Schillinger with Schillinger raping Beecher and messing with his head.
  • Rizzoli & Isles features Hoyt/Jane seeing as how Hoyt is a ugly creepy Ax-Crazy serial killer after Jane and Jane is beautiful and is especially terrified of him.
  • True Blood: Lorena/Bill. In "It Hurts Me Too" after Bill pins Lorena against a wall and tells her that he'll never love her, she kisses him. He does not react well to this, first going for her throat with his fangs, then responding to her urging him to make love to her by doing so extremely violently to the point that he leaves several cuts on her chest and twists her head around 180 degrees. Lorena loves every second of it, and dreamily says "Oh William, I so love you." Also, even after Bill tells Lorena multiple times that he hates her guts and can't stand the sight of her, she still has the nerve to ask him "When will we see each other again?"
  • Glee: Karofsky, Kurt's long-term bully, forcefully kissing Kurt. The shocked and horrified look on Kurt's face said it all.
  • Community: The episode "Physical Education" has a scene where Jeff has a pool match with his aging, overweight new billiards instructor. It features both of them getting naked and the instructor walking up to Jeff while both are still naked and then kissing him on the lips.
  • Babylon 5: Ulkesh (Kosh II) and Lyta have a scene with somewhat sexual overtones, amidst a working relationship where Ulkesh was rather domineering and abusive to her in general:
    Lyta: "You didn't have to pull out of me so fast. You hurt me."
  • Claire and Sylar in Heroes. Claire is underage, and Sylar is a serial killer who's been spent much of the first season stalking her. When they encounter one another again in Volume Five, he actually kisses her while holding her down with telekinesis, and tries to convince her that they were meant for each other. Claire's response is to maintain a full-power Death Glare throughout the encounter.
  • On Defiance, it's hard to watch Stahma Tarr's scenes with her future daughter-in-law Christine McCawley without seeing them as attempts at seduction, especially after Stahma starts having a secret affair with local madam Kenya Rosewater.
  • The Nanny: In "The Nanny-In-Law", it's revealed that Niles had an affair with Nanny Mueller, Maxwell's nanny, when he was growing up. Lampshaded when Maxwell, after seeing them, stammers "I...I...I don't ever want to see that again!"
  • Its Always Sunny In Philhedelphia has roommates and Heterosexual Life-Partners Charlie and Frank. This wouldn't be so bad (if a bit gross considering their lifestyles)...except it's very heavily implied (if not outright stated) that Frank might be Charlie's biological father. This being Always Sunny, this is most likely intentional.
  • Doctor Who:
    • The sexual tension between the Fourth Doctor and Leela is between two pretty sexy characters and quite enjoyable, apart from the incredibly uncomfortable power dynamic and the heavy implication in the Eighth Doctor Adventures that Leela is the Doctor's mother. (This last part has been retconned out since.)
    • Played for laughs in "The Creature From The Pit" which featured a monster with a staggeringly phallic character design, and Tom Baker having an outrageous amount of fun exploiting that by playing his relationship with the monster as sexually as he could get away with. Particularly when he's looking at it while licking his lips and touching his mouth, going towards it and then seeming suddenly intimidated by the size. Or caressing it with his cheek with his eyes closed in ecstasy. Or putting the end of its big tentacle in his mouth and sucking on it.
    • The Master's sexual fascination with the Doctor in "The Keeper of Trakken" would be standard Foe Yay if he wasn't a foul, rotting, seeping monstrosity at the time (while gently twiddling his fingers through the ends of the Doctor's curly hair).
  • Once Upon a Time has the very special case of Swan Queen (Emma/Regina). Its Squick to most of the fandom because Regina is Emma's step-grandmother, has repeatedly tried to kill Emma and her parents, succeeded in killing Emma's actual love interest, and she had forced said love interest into being her Sex Slave for 28 years.
    • It's an interesting case because Emma/Regina is a popular ship, but at the same time it is reviled among the rest of the fandom, even parts of the fandom that have nothing to do with either character,
    • Played Straight with Cora/Leopold. There's just something very wrong with Cora being involved with her daughter's future husband. Especially since she arranged Leopold and Regina's marriage.
    • Speaking of which, Regina/Leopold is universally despised. Whether its due to the age gap, the fact that it was an Arranged Marriage, or if it has to due with Regina conspiring to kill Leopold and his daughter during the entirety of the marriage.

    Theater 
  • In the much-despised sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies, the song "The Beauty Underneath" sounds like a Repo! cut song, features a lot of breathy moans of "yes!" and a lot of ambiguously romantic language. Despite the show's flaws, the song would be standard Phantom Fetish Fuel... if it weren't sung to the Phantom's ten year old son.
  • Stanley and Blanche of A Streetcar Named Desire. Blanche insults Stanley every chance she gets and Stanley equally hates her. Then you see how he deliberately tries to ruin her life and eventually rapes her to insanity.

    Video Games 
  • Throughout later Super Mario Bros. titles, there's heavy implication that Bowser keeps kidnapping Peach because he has a crush on her. It's kind of sweet, really. But when he lied to Bowser Jr., saying that she was actually his mother? Gross. He was basically telling his son "I hit that."
  • Silent Hill
  • In BioShock Infinite a lot of people saw romantic undertones in the relationship between Booker and Elizabeth, which actually kinda made sense... until you find out they are father and daughter. Neither of the characters were aware of it until The Reveal either.
  • Asha in Iji ends up generating some one sided Foe Yay with his obsession. He considers Dan, whom he refers to as "her partner", so unimportant he thinks Iji being upset about endangering/killing him is petty. If Iji bypasses the duel he leaves a suicide note that makes it sound more like she rejected a date. Turning on the Scrambler makes the implied crush on her even more explicit. When Asha's dialogue is more or less composed of "<3", "TOOT TOOT", "HONK" and other possibly dirty things, you can't help but think that Daniel Remar is seriously hinting at something.
  • The Condemned series gives us Serial Killer X/Ethan Thomas. The subtext gets a lot more blatant in the sequel Bloodshot, where SKX actually rescues Ethan, gets close to him and holds a knife to his throat, whispering to him, "Yes... I look forward to cutting you open... learn your little secret..." or how he told Ethan, "Do you think of me whenever you look at your hand? I think of you every time I look in the mirror..." Which would all be well and good, except SKX has a huge section of his mouth/jaw blown off, and has a bunch of cuts and scars on his forehead and face. And adding to that, Ethan is a pale, sickly worn down drunk. Please, No Yay.
  • A lot of Fire Emblem games have a pair of bandits that are as ugly as hell. There is usually a lot of romantic subtext in it, and are also often than not related, usually twins.
  • Haunting Ground
    • Riccardo towards Fiona. At first this might not seem so bad, since his voice seems pretty handsome, and he looks very mysterious with the brown cloak covering his face. Until they actually show his face, and it's revealed he's a 40-50 year old man. It gets much creepier when the player realizes he's her uncle, and shares the same DNA as her father. And he acts like a complete creep towards Fiona — abducting her and stripping her so she has to go around the mansion naked, carving a statue of her pregnant (and telling her that he's going to make her that way), sticking some stick thing up her... apparently to make sure she's healthy enough to have his child and to make sure she was a virgin, out-and-out stalking her with a gun ("Fiona, why do you run? Let me into your womb!"), and if he catches and kills her during gameplay, the Game Over has him raping her body. The worst ending in the game is where he does manage to kidnap her, and confines her in a cage and apparently impregnates her. She's later shown as his wife, with him being very happy.
    • Lorenzo and Fiona. The guy is a crazy, decrepit, wheel chair bound, incredibly old man. Apparently, he wants to rape and impregnate her, too. It's so disturbing when he's revealed to be her freaking grandfather. He creeps the hell out of most people with the way he crawls around grabbing onto Fiona's legs, calling her his "dear Fiona."
  • The sequel to The Suffering has as one of its villains the ghost of a man who raped and killed prostitutes, and who says things like "I cut her apart so I could see her inner self." Some dialogue indicates that he's a Depraved Bisexual and has his eye on the main character. Even worse, at one point he appears to audibly fantasise you as a child... specifically as a little girl.
  • Kingdom Hearts:
    • Axel/Roxas. Some may like it, but others... Axel is around 25, and Roxas is around 15. Also, Axel is, as of the release of 358/2 Days, something of a surrogate father to Roxas. Wife Husbandry leaves a really bad taste in a lot of people's mouths.
      • Looking at the interactions between the two, he seems to act like more of a mentor and buddy to Roxas, with Xemnas filling the role of a distant father.
    • Roxas/Xion considering she's a clone of Roxas's somebody. The Screw Yourself implications scares off romantic interpretations of their relationship. "I am Sora, just as I am you[Roxas]." Furthermore, Xion's true form seems to be a featureless puppet, considering that's what Larxene (who doesn't care about anybody) saw when she looked at her, though her true form could also simply be Xion (Kairi w/black hair) since that's how Roxas sees her, given he personally doesn't know Kairi and started to see her as Xion after bonding with her.
  • Drakengard is made of this, quite deliberately. The hero's sister wants to jump his bones, and one of your main characters is a pedophile. Long story short, you know there's problems when the least disturbing implied pairing is the hero and his dragon partner.
  • Mass Effect
    • After some close listening to Harbinger's lines, a large fraction of them make it sound like he wants Shepard. Really, really bad. Even Mecha Cthulhus want Shepard.
    PRESERVE SHEPARD'S BODY IF POSSIBLE.
    I KNOW YOU FEEL THIS.
    I WILL FIND YOU AGAIN.
    • In universe, Ashley will get all bitchy if Shepard jokes about her and Liara fighting over him. Afterwards he can suggest a threesome, which promptly causes Ash to dump his ass.
    • The second game was working on a romance with a female Shepard and Tali, however her voice actor was really uncomfortable with the idea so it was dropped.
  • For an in-universe example, in the Ace Attorney series Edgeworth gets incredibly pissed off at anyone who tries to suggest the Edgeworth/Wendy Oldbag ship. Especially Oldbag herself.
  • In Prototype, there is a really, really disturbing amount of subtext between Alex Mercer and Elizabeth Greene. The scene when she ends up pinning his body beneath hers with their faces a hair apart does not help at all. But, quite apart from them trying sincerely to kill/eat each other, the obvious age difference (she looks nineteen, he looks about a decade older (The Reveal is she's over fifty and he hasn't even lived a month), their mutual creepiness, and that she calls herself his mother...well, add tentacles, disease, pustules and blood, stir well and enjoy. Extra horror: THEY ACTUALLY BREED. It wasn't intended by either of them but eeeugh.
  • Dragon Quest Heroes Rocket Slime: What would be a fitting reward for the hero? Could he become a prince? Brilliant! But he has to marry Fat Bastard Gluttonella...
  • One of the possible companions in Dragon Age II, Fenris, is a former slave. For a long time, a common theory was that he was more than just a body guard; especially since some of his former master's lines give certain implications. This seemed to be just a theory since Fenris acts exasperated when Isabela brings it up, but then Word of God confirmed it. Also, said former master is an old guy with Blood Magic and a serious Lack of Empathy. And Fenris has been a slave since childhood.
  • For BlazBlue, there is a lot of unpleasant subtext between Relius and Makoto. His obsession with Makoto's soul borders on fetishistic, his dialogue and means on restraining her during his Astral is demeaning, and then there's Makoto's Bad Ending.
  • Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots: The fight between Vamp and Raiden has some extremely disturbing homoerotic imagery: the grappling, the almost rutting-like motion when Raiden stabs himself to nail Vamp, the white cyborg blood, the crotch-knife licking and stabbing which almost looks like penetration of a different sort; plus, when Raiden stabs himself and Vamp, they end up in a pose that makes it look like Vamp is spooning Raiden. And then Vamp pulls Raiden closer to plunge the blade in farther.
  • Togainu no Chi features a lot of this. For example, there's one of the ending which has Keisuke ripping out Akira's guts while proclaiming that he loves Akira. He's also sporting a look that seems similar to an orgasm.
  • In Embric of Wulfhammer's Castle , the Duchess was the "favourite" of her uncle Greyghast, she remembers his "attentions" with horror, and one flashback shows that he admired her beauty and repeatedly drugged her. It's stated once or twice that he was raping her and planned to make her his wife, but this is easy to miss and most of the time it's just creepy, creepy subtext.
  • In Baroque, there's a bit of well-buried subtext that implies that the Protagonist (12) had feelings for his twin brother (13). The boys are conjoined twins and share a heart; only one of them is conscious at a time when they're both alive, and most of their communication was in the form of notes and playing chess. It sort of gets worse with the manga, which implies 12 has these same sort of feelings for the Absolute God but looks to her as sort of a surrogate for his conjoined twin. So, it's rather complicated and can be mildly unsettling.
  • The eponymous protagonist of Bayonetta is Ms. Fanservice who generates subtext almost constantly. Unfortunately this includes mention of "pillow talk" with Temperantia.
  • There is a very good reason why Van Grants of Tales of the Abyss was given the Fan Nickname Master Badtouch. Van manipulates Luke's mancrush on him shamelessly, and his words when calming Luke's hyperresonance Freak Out on the boat are borderline sexual. And then, of course, there's Van's suggestion that they run away together. All of this would still almost count as Ho Yay...except Luke is a clone created by Van, and Van's only reason for keeping him around is to use him to destroy Akzeriuth. Also, Van is pretty clearly an adult, what with the memetic beard and all, and Luke, thanks to the cloning process, is mentally seven years old. Mind Game Ship + Pedophilic implications = No Yay.
  • The subtext between Zoe and Alvin Peats in Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. He is a 200-year old green blob of fat and sweat. Before they meet face-to-face, he already stalked Zoe through the eyes of his cat minion and knew her body's most intimate details thanks to eating the sex dreams of her ex-boyfriend, which he very much enjoyed and brags about. When they finally meet he recognizes her by sniffing around. Then he announces she will stay in his lab, where he�ll "take good care of her" and conduct experiments to uncover a secret of her power.
  • Dr. Henry West MD towards Jennifer Willis in the remake of Splatterhouse, considering he's centuries old and sees Jennifer as a substitute for his wife.
  • As seen in the page quote, in Fallout: New Vegas, after a run-in with some lobotomy-happy scientists who replace your brain with implants, and place it in a jar, you can later have a talk with it. And, depending on your perks, you can hit on your own brain.
  • Waylon Park and Eddie Gluskin (aka, "The Groom") in the Whistleblower DLC of Outlast. Gluskin wants a wife and children... by castrating Waylon to make him into the perfect bride.

    Webcomics 
  • The Order of the Stick
    • Tsukiko is a necromancer who likes undead. LIKE likes undead. Even Xykon is squicked by this.
    • Belkar can do this In-Universe thanks to taking the "craft distubing mental image" feat.
  • Sluggy Freelance proudly presents you with Sam/Zombie-Head-On-A-Stick. Yes, that's a guy named Sam shipped with the rotting head of a zombie that's been stuck on the end of a stick.
  • El Goonish Shive. This is Tedd's reaction to the thought of Nanase, his cousin, involved with anyone.
  • Drowtales
    • There's some subtext between Snadhya'rune Vel'Sharen, the effective Big Bad of the story, and Ariel, the protagonist. The two have never been in the same room, but this scene has Snadhya'rune talk about getting her claws into Ariel, and she recruits female agents at the school through sexual favors. Add to that Ariel is the biological daughter of Snadhya's lover Mel'arnach, who herself was recruited while Snadhya was her teacher and the subtext becomes really unfortunate.
    • Later on Snadhya gets this with another character who unfortunately for him is in the same room, Jiaan, the bodyguard of Snadhya's niece Yami'ni who first got captured by her Empaths and Mind Raped for what's implied to be weeks and then trotted out a completely broken man who is forced into a sadistic fight to the death as part of a deluded fool's Engagement Challenge, and while he manages to win his "reward" is nothing if not similar to being lobotomized and Snadhya's clearly predatory declaration that "he is mine" after receiving her "safe" taint is the icing on the Squick cake.
    • Snadhya's (adopted) twin sister Khaless is no slouch to this trope, considering that she's a shapeshifting Eldritch Abomination Mind Hive made up of the souls of people she's absorbed over the years, including the original Khaless. As soon as it became clear that she had slept with Kharla'ggen, whose own unique form of Demonic Possession more or less leaves her with the mental capacity of a child the forum reacted with near universal DO NOT WANT.
  • An in-character example in Bittersweet Candy Bowl - David ships Paulo with Daisy, but Paulo sees Daisy as "a kid" as well as having some rather siblingish feelings for her, though on the other hand, there might be something there. Still, he denies it, probably not in the least in part because she is the most physically underdeveloped character, despite being his age (and older than love interest Lucy).
  • Girl Genius
    • Lucrezia-In-Agatha/Klaus in Bad Future. Lucrezia takes over her own daughter's body and then mind-controls Klaus, her old lover and father of said daughter's Love Interest, to force him to marry her (still in Agatha's body!) and use him as a puppet.
    • Lucrezia-In-Agatha with anyone. Even Mad Scientist characters in the story are squicked out by the very idea.

    Western Animation 
  • Batman Beyond:
    • "Out of the Past." Ra's Al Ghul. In Talia's body. Flirting with Old!Bruce, complete with a smooch. The awkwardness is off the scale. Bruce even points it out later:
    Terry: Lady, you are creeping me out!
    Bruce: You? She kissed me.
    • In the earlier Batman series, Batman (and some fans) have this reaction when learning of the relationship between Baby Doll and Killer Croc.
    Batgirl: What do you suppose they do on a date?
    Batman: I don't want to think about it.
  • Invader Zim has Zim and Dib, and their almost sadomasochistic obsession with each other.
  • In Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic disguised himself as Robotnik's first love, Lucinda, and tricked him into marrying him.
  • Teen Titans:
    • Slade embodies this trope on multiple occasions. The ridiculous amounts of Foe Yay with Robin, his not at all wholesome partnership with Terra, his highly suggestive Mind Rape of Raven and suggestive lines/actions towards her in "Birthmark"... the man causes a lot of this. Made even worse because Slade/Terra is a canon pairing in the comic. (Though Terra is far, far, far more evil there.)
    • Trigon, Raven's demonic father, and Raven.
  • Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers episode "Ariel" implied that Niko had a slight crush on her captain, Zachary Foxx, at one point. This is pretty reasonable. Zach's got a lot of Mr. Fanservice factors working in his favor. However the (likely) unintentional resemblance she has to Eliza (Zach's wife) makes it a little creepy. That Maya Danzinger voiced Eliza in her only "live" appearance while Laura Dean (Niko's actress) voiced Eliza in "Space Sorcerer" and "Psychocrypt" (both times, turning out to be someone's attempt to Mind Screw Zach)... well, this makes it a lot creepy.
  • Generator Rex
    • The Foe Yay between Rex and Van Kleiss, given how squicky Van Kleiss himself is. "You are very important to me, Rex" indeed.
    • Breach comes across as a particularly horrifying type of yandere one episode, seeing as how she traps Rex in her own personal pocket dimension and refers to him as her "new favorite."
  • Codename: Kids Next Door
  • That one South Park episode, back in Season 4, when Wendy and Cartman, who are usually enemies, pair up for a debate and subsequently fall so hard in this that Wendy dreams about Cartman riding into a mountain meadow, shirtless, on a white horse.
  • My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
    • "The Return of Harmony" has Discord get uncomfortably close to Twilight Sparkle. As in, constantly invading her personal space, wrapping an arm around her, grabbing her, and at one point he strokes her face. He also displays a suspicious amount of glee as he slowly breaks her and drives her off of the Despair Event Horizon (as opposed to the other ponies, who he gives a quick brainwashing to and then leaves alone). If his comments to Celestia ("Did you miss me, Celestia? I missed you.") are any indication, this is just how Discord treats all his foes, which could make it slightly better or much, much worse.
      • Even after he's reformed, Discord still does this to Twilight in "Three's a Crowd", and it is all very uncomfortable. Out of all the times he gets, erm, physical with the ponies only one hug from him in the Season 4 Finale is actually reciprocated.
    • In "Hearts and Hooves Day" Cheerilee and Big McIntosh become an overly cutesy couple... because they had been slipped a Love Potion and were not entirely conscious of their own actions, drawing a disturbing parallel to date rape drugs.
    • Chrysalis is a G-rated succubus who had Shining Armor under More Than Mind Control (while impersonating his fiancee) for who knows how long.
  • The Simpsons
    • Smithers' crush on his boss, Mr. Burns who's old, skinny, ugly, and evil.
    • One time Marge got a job at the nuclear plant and Mr. Burns developed a thing for her.
    • A Willy Wonka Expy becomes Bart's business parter, and Homer has to say the following about this:
    Nothing makes a parent happier than when an eccentric single man takes an interest in their child!
  • Adventure Time
    • The Ice King is seriously creepy. He kidnaps princesses (or outright brainwashes them) so often that most characters treat it as a common nuisance. He does this because he tries to force them to marry him, and the way he justifies himself and his actions channels every abuser/stalker/rapist trope in the book. Then he transfers all of that obsession towards Finn and Jake (a 13-year-old boy and a dog, respectively), trying to get them to love him by doing things like using a paralyzing potion on them and forcing them to do stuff with him. It can be interpreted as him wanting a friend, but then there's that fanfiction he wrote in which a Gender Flipped Finn declares her undying love for the Ice King.
    • In aforementioned fanfiction, the Ice Queen is just as creepy towards Fionna (if not moreso), impersonating her crush and taking her on a date.
    • Thanks to the crown messing up his memory, Ice King is ignorant of the father-daughter relationship he and Marceline used to share. He once offers to hug her after she confesses she cares for him... and promptly attempts to kiss her. She shoves him away and yells disgustedly "Ugh, not like that!"
  • Ursula and Ariel from Disney's The Little Mermaid. What with her calling Ariel things like "my child," "angelfish," "my dear sweet child," "sweet cakes," "poor little princess," and "my sweet," and her tendency to invade Ariel's personal space. As well as telling her if she can't get Prince Eric to kiss her on the third day, then as a consequence, she'll "belong to me"/"will be mine." And at one point in the 'Poor Unfortunate Souls' song she moves her tentacle across Ariel's chest, with Ariel having to push it off. (She was originally intended to be Ariel's aunt, which probably only makes it worse.)
  • The Batman has The Joker's Foe Yay subtext with "Batsy." One episode has The Joker run to Batman, declare how much he's missed him, and actually glomp him much to Batman's utter disgust.
  • Family Guy
    • Quagmire, an unattractive and a horny bastard who frequently has sex (consensual or not), generates this constantly. Worse, most of his behavior is Played for Laughs.
    • The time in "Barely Legal" where Meg develops a Yandere interest in Brian (the family's talking dog) after he drunkenly kissed her at her prom which lead to an attempt on her part to rape him.
    • Brian himself has an unhealthy obsession with Lois, and he even has Stewie (a talking baby) making infrequent advances on him.
    • Meg's brief relationship with Adam West, who is way older than her, and it was revealed that he branded his initials on her ass. Granted, West explicitly said that he wasn't going to pursue her sexually until she was eighteen or twenty-one and breaks up with her when he realizes that their relationship could get them both in trouble.
    • Herbert's (a creepy old guy) interest in much younger guys like Chris.
    • Stewie's obsession with Lois' flip-flops between wanting to kill her and just wanting her.
    • Peter (Meg's dad) once had her kiss him on the lips and it was implied that they slept together once.
    • Peter orders Chris (his son) to take Lois' place while she is away. Chris, playing Lois, sits next to Peter and compliments his muscles. Peter plays along and promises an obscene sex for that night.
  • Danny Phantom
    • Danny and Vlad. Vlad's first appearance alone has him creeping into Danny's room just watching the boy struggle in his sleep, and the multiple attempts Vlad has tried to lure Danny into the dark side, when taken in a different context, sounds almost seductive. And of course "Eye for an Eye" which is a treasure trove of subtext quotes ("I'm rubbing your nose in this mess you made, Daniel, doesn't it smell yummy?" and "You forgot to take your supplements, have a dose of vitamin-ME!" for example) and has them seeing each other naked. Then there's the prepubescent female clone of Danny that Vlad made... whom he only planned to use to perfect a male clone. Given Vlad's obsession with Danny's mother and desire to make Danny his son, Freud would definitely have something Oedipal related to say about it. Even though the series passes Vlad's behavior off as Stalker Without A Crush, it's still creepy to think about.
    • Dark Danny and Danny have one-sided No Yay, with Dark Danny being the one generating it. At one point, he forces a Time Medallion inside Danny's body while Danny screams in pain.
    • An in-universe example with the Box Ghost and Lunch Lady. Danny, Sam and Tucker are all bothered by this relationship happening in the future.
  • My Life as a Teenage Robot: Vexus's obsession with Jenny.
  • Spongebob Squarepants and Squidward given his creepy obsession with him. Don't see it? Come on! They're like brothers, only closer.
  • In Phineas and Ferb, Jeremy's sister Suzy behaves almost like a huge Yandere around him.
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1987 has Shredder and Krang, two villains who always bicker Like an Old Married Couple. Keep in mind that one of them is a slimy brain monster.
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender
    • In "The Waterbending Scroll" Zuko's approach on Katara was really disturbing. From exactly what harm from the pirates does he claim he will protect her? He teases her while putting her necklace back, but it's actually an engagement necklace, so putting it on while immobilizing the girl would be a forced marriage. It's strongly implied/pretty much confirmed in one of the North Pole episodes that even Katara didn't realize that her necklace was an engagement necklace, so it's pretty unlikely that Zuko (who isn't from either Water Tribe) knew. That they were both unaware that he was taunting her with an engagement necklace may or may not make the scene even creepier.
    • Azula has some seriously creepy subtext towards almost everyone, especially towards her brother Zuko, who most of the time she tries to kill. The scene where he questions her about one of her latest schemes in the middle of the night has her acting as close to The Vamp as a PG show could get with an adult woman talking to an unrelated man, so it's quite frankly a miracle that this fourteen-year-old's interactions with her sixteen-year-old brother made it past the censors.
  • The Legend of Korra
    • Amon's behavior towards Korra has a lot of scary rape vibes. Same goes for Amon's behavior towards Tahno when he was taking Tahno's bending away and Tahno was begging him not to do it. In the finale it's revealed Amon is a bloodbender and ends up taking away Korra's bending (or most of it) and then says "I told you I would destroy you."
    • In episode eight it is revealed that Tarrlok is a bloodbender who can bloodbend without a full moon and his behavior towards Korra gets a lot of rape vibes as well. He used his creepy powers to kidnap her and was planning to start a new life with her as his hostage.
    • Eska and Bolin. While it was seen as comic relief, Eska's behavior drifts off into dangerous territory. The scene where she "proposes" to Bolin is the reason why this couple is here. Fans who have seen this claim that the necklace Eska gave Bolin looks like a BDSM collar. There have also been thoughts about what their first night together would have been like, some of them including Desna watching the couple have sex. What completes this is Eska's face when she's approaching Varrick's yacht. Even though Love Redeems Eska, you still can't help, but wonder what brought on her violent and possessive behavior.
  • In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the very first time Ahsoka met Cad Bane, he electrocuted her twice — first to knock her out, then just for the fun of it — handcuffed her, caressed her head in a rather creepy manner, before taking her Padawan Braid as a trophy. Much later, when Ahsoka protected an unconscious Anakin from him, he left, promising her a dance at an other time. Then there's Garnac, the leader of a Trandoshan hunting party, who hunted Ahsoka and other kidnapped Jedi children on a jungle moon. He provided lines like these:
    Garnac She (Ahsoka) can't hide for ever! Mark my words, I'll have her skin, and nail it to the wall for killing my son!
    Garnac A valiant effort little younglings. Esspecially You, togruta. You'll be a prized trophy of my collection.
  • Gargoyles
    • Thailog and Delilah. Thailog introduces Delilah with the phrase "She'll do anything for me", makes it clear that she and the other clones have been programmed to obey his every whim, and she calls him "master".
    • Thailog's behavior towards Elisa in his introductory episode. He touches her face and calls her "my dear" while she's handcuffed to the wall of an oil rig, and makes it clear that he intends on killing her along with Sevarius, Xanatos, and Goliath. He thinks of Goliath as one of his fathers, and Word of God is that Thailog has something of an Oedipus complex.
    • Sevarius's behavior toward the unconscious Angela in the episode Monsters. He's toying with her hair while she's still unconscious, and orders his assistants to "be gentle" while "collecting the necessary samples." Yikes.
  • There are those who choose to see Prowl and Lockdown of Transformers Animated on a slashy light. Why is this disturbing? Because one of them is Lockdown. There is no good way for someone else to wear your body parts.
  • In an early episode of Samurai Jack, Jack meets a female warrior named Ikra, who joins him on his quest! (Aww!) The two of them get along and even seem to flirt! (How sweet!) Ikra turns out to be Aku! (AUGH ABANDON SHIP ABANDON SHIP)
