->''"Favours to none, to all she smiles extends"''
-->-- '''Alexander Pope''', "TheRapeOfTheLock"

A person who loves to tease others sexually, often the main character. Maybe she'll try EroticEating. Maybe she'll [[SexyWalk sidle sensually]] or [[{{Gainaxing}} walk with an extra bounce]] in her step around him. Maybe she'll go all the way and outright ''offer'' sex. But mostly, they are not being serious. Almost always, the teased person will act in various comical fashions, maybe because she's immature, or maybe because she just wants some fun.

Since MostWritersAreMale, this trope is unavoidable for {{Fanservice}}. When a show does it to the male ''audience'', it's SexSells.

Girls have been accused of this since forever. Sometimes it's true, more often it's wishful thinking, but it does occur in fiction a lot. Occasionally it's given a more [[FreudianExcuse dramatic justification]] when it's revealed that this insincere sexual aggression is really a way of feeling powerful and in control, covering up deep seated emotional insecurities, thus explaining why they can never act on them. See {{Tsundere}} and {{Yandere}} for other common ways fictional character cover their emotional insecurities.

Almost AlwaysFemale, but occasionally gay men are also depicted as TheTease. Almost never applies to straight men, at least in fiction, unless they're a comedic CasanovaWannabe. Often associated with the HardDrinkingPartyGirl. A standard tactic of TheVamp and the FemmeFatale.

If the target is NotDistractedByTheSexy they might be immune to teasing, expect TheTease to become frustrated and either give up, or up the teasing to dangerous levels. (Possibly with an Aesop when the target suddenly decides to accept their offer at a point when backing off isn't an option anymore).

A trope loaded with UnfortunateImplications and prone to enrage at least some women, because it has sometimes been used as an argument that "she really wanted it" and thereby "justifying" rape. Sometimes these unfortunate implications are even Lampshaded with a GenderBender or a DisguisedInDrag scenario. The reverse with a SweetPollyOliver incident is rarer, but also tends to be DarkerAndEdgier.

Not to be confused with either the InnocentFanserviceGirl, or a character who usually doesn't tease people, but ends up in [[WeNeedADistraction a certain situation]] requiring them to ShowSomeLeg.

Sometimes a character might only tease their LoveInterest. This might be considered flirting instead of teasing, since the assumption is that that WillTheyOrWontThey eventually will become They Did. (Denial of the implied sex is what makes a tease a tease, if a tease later puts out her past teasing retroactively becomes flirting).

Compare with TheGadfly, a nonsexual version of this trope to provoke a reaction [[ItAmusedMe for amusement]]. Not to be confused with TheTeaser.


[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Yoruichi likes to show herself naked in front of Ichigo, because of his [[CelibateHero hilarious reactions]]. To a lesser extent, Rangiku as well.
* Aiko from ''LightNovel/BakaAndTestSummonTheBeasts'' is this to the extreme, any appearance she makes is to tease boys, especially Tsuchiya. And when she says she's not wearing any panties or a bra, she is very likely telling the truth.
* Tsuruya in the ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' novels really likes suggesting to do some intimate stuff with Kyon (And Mikuru). Kyon doesn't fall for it.
** In fact, Haruhi herself sometimes does it:
--->"Swimsuits! Swimsuits! Everyone get dressed in your swimsuits and meet in the hall! Hee hee, I've helped choose these two cuties' swimsuits! You must be looking forward to them, right Kyon?" Haruhi revealed an expression of "I know what you've been thinking already" and smiled evilly, revealing her white teeth.
* Botan from ''Manga/SevenSeeds'' reveals this side of hers later on. She has no problem being (half) naked in front of other people and is even willing to give some eyecandy in order to distract someone.
* Ranma of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' is a GenderBender thanks to [[TransformationRay a fall in a Jusenkyo spring]]. While he [[IJustWantToBeNormal desires nothing less then to be cured]], he is still more then willing to use his female form's attractiveness to his advantage. In fact, he even seems to [[RealMenWearPink enjoy]] being able to make idiots of other guys simply by getting wet and then playing on their hormones- though he goes more for "cute" than outright sexy, at least by default, and he is not only straight, but prone to reacting violently to those who do try to act on those urges he stirs. Mostly, he uses this to charm guys into giving "her" free food or extra helpings, something a BigEater always welcomes, but he also enjoys using it to mess with the ever-so-shy (and clueless) [[TheRival Ryoga Hibiki]]. As two of his enemies, namely [[KidSamurai Tatewaki]] [[LordErrorProne Kuno]] and [[DirtyOldMan Happosai]], are [[LoveableSexManiac massive perverts]], he also finds himself falling into this routine easily to gain an extra advantage against them. In fact, against [[OldMaster Happosai]], this is often the only way Ranma can set things up so he can ''beat'' the disgusting old lech.
** Heck, even in his male form he isn't above attempting to use his sex appeal to manipulate (apparent) females. Didn't work so well on the crossdresser Tsubasa, and arguably worked too well on his mirror clone.
* Urd from ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' does this a lot, especially with Keiichi.
* Kitsune from ''Manga/LoveHina'' does this, mainly to blackmail money or to cause trouble for Keitaro.
* Akemi from ''Manga/MaisonIkkoku'' definitely counts, unfortunately she's not very good at making clear she's just joking.
* Ryoko from ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' Of course she means her offers towards Tenchi, but she teases others.
* Manga/{{Naruto}}'s Sexy Jutsu, which appears to turn him into a naked woman. This results in TheNoseBleed for any male who sees it.
** Well, except [[spoiler:for Killer Bee, who {{No Sell}}s the Harem Jutsu, Sexy Jutsu's upgraded version.]]
* Dokuro from ''LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokuroChan'' acts this way to the main character [[ButtMonkey Sakura]], when she's not [[SociopathicHero brutally murdering]] him with her [[GirlWithPsychoWeapon giant club]].
* [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Ami]] from ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}!'' occasionally tries it with [[TheProtagonist Ryuuji]]. It mostly seems to be a way for her to grab attention while keeping on top of the situation.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has Evangeline order her RobotGirl squad to strip Negi naked and throw him into the bath with her while she changes to her busty adult form, only for her to start phrasing things in the dirtiest way possible before [[KissOfTheVampire licking the cut on his arm]].
** Kinda makes you wonder what Evangeline would do if she saw the magically aged up Negi in the Magical World arc, doesn't it?
** To a lesser extent, a number of girls in the class make liberal use of MarshmallowHell (especially [[ShotaCon Ayaka]]). Of course, [[AdorablyPrecociousChild Negi is ten]], so none of the girls actually get anywhere.
** Konoka [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation may or may not]] be one of these towards [[BodyguardCrush Setsuna]]. No one can seem to agree on whether Konoka is intentionally flirting or if she's [[IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn oblivious of]] [[SchoolgirlLesbians Setsuna's feelings toward her.]]
*** Chapter 252 makes it quite obvious that ''she is''. [[spoiler:She ''kisses'' Setsuna, explains that she's aware of all of Setsuna's angst regarding her own weakness, and tells Setsuna that she's strong enough and wants to be with her. She then proceeds to give Setsuna the ''longest, deepest, and most enthusiastic Pactio kiss yet shown in the entire series.'' Complete with lots of tongue. It takes ''[[http://www.mangareader.net/209-15085-16/mahou-sensei-negima/chapter-252.html two]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/209-15085-17/mahou-sensei-negima/chapter-252.html pages]]'' to properly illustrate.]]
*** After that, even resident pervert Chamo asked [[spoiler:if they wanted to just skip straight to a full pactio, [[LampshadeHanging commenting on their kiss being the longest yet.]]]]
*** The question is whether she really ''didn't'' understand or if it was merely ObfuscatingStupidity. There are hints that she already knew about magic (and her own ability to perform it) before she was officially let in on the secret, so this wouldn't be out of character.
* Kazuma of ''LightNovel/KazeNoStigma'' for a rare straight male example. It's very clear [[{{Tsundere}} how she feels]] but by the end of the show he's ''still'' just teasing, even though [[spoiler:he's inadvertently revealed that she's the closest living person to him now]].
* While there are many beautiful women in ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'', Akeno Himejima is the Queen of Tease. It doesn't help that she is ''actively'' pursuing the Mistress role and is considered equal to Rias in terms of beauty. Bonus points for the teasing being much to Rias's chagrin, most of the time. ...Didn't we mention that Rias and Akeno are HeterosexualLifePartners and both are in love with the protagonist Issei?
* [[CuteMonsterGirl Holo]] from ''LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf'' loves to tease her partner Lawrence- not with her body (they both have a pretty casual approach to nudity) but just by flirting with him about their relationship. Lawrence is quite capable of holding his own, though. The dialogue is so well written it's reminiscent of the movies of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.
** Lawrence seems to be well able to give back all that he gets in this department. Despite her years (centuries) more experience, he seems to do better in the long run with this trope.
** Lawrence ups his game in the second arch or season two. At that point, he was almost matching her blow for blow and and actually "won" once.
* Sei of ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' has this trope written all over her. Most of her obviously sexual teasing is directed at Yumi, though.
** Sachiko is also not above acting seductively toward Yumi, especially in the first and fourth anime seasons.
* Hagino from ''BlueDrop'' starts doing this toward Mari as she gradually [[DefrostingIceQueen breaks through her composed stance]].
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': Asuka does this all the time to Shinji (when she's not [[{{Tsundere}} angrily berating him]] for allegedly perving on her):
** One example is when Asuka demonstrates thermal expansion by cupping her hands over her breasts and asking him to calculate how much bigger they've become as a result. Shinji stammers that he doesn't know anything about all that.
** At episode 9 she pulls a curtain between them and calls it the "Wall of Jericho," ostensibly warning him not to come near her. At the moment it was not clear if she was intentionally dropping a hint (Bible-savvy viewers will remember that the Wall of Jericho is best known for ''falling down''). During her [[spoiler:utterly awful MindRape at the...wings? of Arael, it is made clear that she knew very very well what happened to the Wall of Jericho, and [[ArentYouGoingToRavishMe was hoping Shinji did too. Unfortunately he didn't.]]]]
* ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}'' has ''nine minutes straight'' of Hitagi starting naked, getting dressed and undressed again in front of Koyomi. Then the next episode starts with her talking about how beautiful she is and constantly skipping for [[{{Gainaxing}} absolutely no reason at all.]] [[spoiler:They did not long after.]]
* Chizuru in ''SeitokaiNoIchizon''. Except it seems like if Ken actually tried anything he would probably burst into flames, melt or get eaten by some invisible monster. Something bad, in any case. [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant She's a little too scary, in any case.]]
* In ''Manga/SasamekiKoto'', Ushio's teasing of Sumika is a clear sign of her growing self-acceptance.
* [[spoiler:Bellemere]] in ''OnePiece''. At least, [[spoiler:she ''[[DeathByOriginStory was.]]'']]
** How about her daughter, Nami? Beyond her manipulations of [[ChivalrousPervert Sanji]], she also hits on a variety of shopkeepers to get discounts.
*** Don't forget Happiness Punch!
* Momo of ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' regularly sneaks into Rito's bed, asks him where his Ero-mags are, and in one notable insistance pops up between his legs and offers to help him with his love problems. She even freely admits that she wants to be his mistress.
** Risa is just as bad, but unlike Momo who only messes with Rito, Risa likes to tease everybody, male or female; she enjoys SkinshipGrope a little ''too'' much, once pushed Rito onto her bed and began srtipping him, regularly feels up Yami-chan's legs and just generally acts as sultry as possible.
* Chihaya of ''AsuNoYoichi'' tease Yoichi this way. It doesn't seem she's ever been serious about taking it too far, just seeing how far she can push him before she gets stopped (by her elder sister when she goes full-out). She writes manga, so it's very clear what she's looking for.
* Sheryl Nome of ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' shows no remorse about invoking this, even on occasion invoking it on another girl (such as teasing Nanase about her voluptuous figure). Her teasing ranges from subtle and innocent to sexy and blatant, and she's especially fond of invoking it on love interest [[DesignatedHero Alto Saotome]].
* ''Anime/StarDriver'''s Kanako Watanabe exists to make [[TheHero Takuto]] thoroughly uncomfortable with her increasingly suggestive comments.
* Kureha from ''{{Tokko}}'' tends to be a tease. Saya also acts as a bit of a tease towards her own brother Ranmaru.
* [[CatBoy Ikuto]] from ''Manga/ShugoChara'' is a shameless tease and a rare male example. He has the ability to make even the most mundane things he says or does ''drip'' with seduction and [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything sexual]] [[FreudWasRight undertones]], and he loves to ruffle the heroine's feathers, sometimes pretending like he's flirting with her or about to kiss her, only to pull a "Just kidding!" right when she's good and flustered. No wonder their relationship is [[BelligerentSexualTension the way it is.]]
* Kanade from ''LightNovel/MayoChiki'' is a big one towards Jiro. Particularly hilarious during the beach scene in episode 7 when she makes some really erotic noises and suggestive lines as he tries to nonchalantly put sunscreen on her, embarrassing him a lot in the process.
* Jura from ''Anime/{{Vandread}}'' likes to use this trope on Hibiki, especially whenever their mecha are merged together.
* ''Anime/RuneSoldierLouie'': [[OurElvesAreBetter Celecia]] is both a tease and a bit of a BitchInSheepsClothing, where Louie's concerned. She's genuinely [[FriendToAllLivingThings a very kindhearted person]], but she isn't above using his feelings for her to her advantage; only to run off [[SoLongSuckers immediately after he's suited her purposes.]] Melissa and the others hang a massive lampshade on it at the end of the 9th episode (seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVUe1_SqaxA at 18:15-18:57, here).]]:
-->'''Melissa: (smirking)''' "Do you ''still'' not get it, Louie? [[ManipulativeBitch That girl was just pretending so she'd get on your good side.]] That way, she could have ''[[UnwittingPawn you]]'' stop the machine."
-->'''Jeanie: (irately at Louie)''' "You're just lucky we were all on the same team."
-->'''Merrill: (smug grin)''' "Let's put it this way, Louie: elf girl used you. But as they say: "bitches will be bitches.."
-->'''*girls laugh as Louie realizes [[IdiotHero he's an idiot]]*'''
* Lucy of ''Manga/FairyTail'', although it's usually overshadowed by other [[{{Tsundere}} character]] [[GenkiGirl traits]], or just not plot-relevant. However, she does vocally admit to putting effort into being cute for this purpose, although her outfits also tend to be overshadowed by the more {{Stripperific}} outfits worn by... [[NotDistractedByTheSexy well, everyone]]. Other 'clues' are also semi-frequently given, such as Erza's reaction to some of her underwear in a drawer.
-->'''Lucy''': Aww, come on. How much is it really worth? Surely you can cut me a deal. ''(later)'' That trick usually works! So much for using my feminine wiles...
* Panty of ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' plays this at least once in almost every episode. Way too much to count. [[AllWomenAreLustful Knowing her...]]
* Tomoe from ''Manga/KamisamaKiss'' is another rare male example. He is {{Bishounen}} LittleBitBeastly {{Kitsune}} who is not wholly unaware of his attractiveness and can be quite pragmatic about employing both his looks and his charms when it suits him. [[spoiler: To prove a point, he acts like this towards Nanami once.]] Oh to add more fun to the mix he is a ShapeshiftingSeducer too.
* In ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', WORST, the EvilTwin of the [[spoiler:MISAKA]] network, tries to seduce Accelerator with some EroticEating. It completely fails, since he views the clones as somewhere between his sisters and his daughters, but definitely ''not'' love interests.
* Riko Mine Lupin IV in ''LightNovel/HidanNoAria''. She knows that Kinji's [[SuperMode Hysteria Mode]] is triggered by sexual arousal and shamelessly takes advantage of this (and of the information she has about his brother) to be very... ''close'' to him -- under the pretext of helping him activate HSS at will, but Kinji doesn't really buy it. Later though [[spoiler:she understands that Kinji is more aroused by Aria than by her, and does such things as imitating Aria's voice in a sensual tone or licking her neck in front of him.]] Yes, her Tease status actually has a practical use.
* Aikuro Mikisugi of ''Anime/KillLaKill'', Ryuko's homeroom teacher and secret SexyMentor, loves nothing more than annoying her with suggestive comments, stripping, and a complete disregard for personal space.
* Maria likes to do this to Basara a lot in ''LightNovel/ShinmaiMaouNoTestament'', such as when she claims to be wearing a NakedApron in the first episode, only to then reveal her clothing underneath.
* Urushibara does this a lot to Moroha in ''LightNovel/SeikenTsukaiNoWorldBreak''. Though she usually only does it if Satsuki is present, as she seems to enjoy provoking the latter any time she gets too friendly with him.

* Young SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}}'s life mission since [[Comicbook/YoungAvengers some]] [[Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard years]] seems to be to flirt with everybody in the MarvelUniverse, with [[BiTheWay no concern of gender or sexuality]]. They were already a {{troll}} and kind of MediumAware, now they're also OtherworldlyAndSexuallyAmbiguous and know how to invoke their stance as MrFanservice.

* Deconstructed with Meredith Rand in ThePaleKing.
* ASongOfIceAndFire suggests Margaery Tyrell might be this. Despite [[spoiler: Cersei's]] best attempts to get her to commit adultery so she can be discredited, it seems that Margaery flirts but is too moral, [[GenreSavvy or perhaps just too clever]], to let it go any further.
* Literature/TrappedOnDraconica: Daniar is accused of this by Kalak.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/StargateSG1''" Daniel assumes Vala is this. He's wrong, as [[BelligerentSexualTension she has real feelings for him]], but she certainly teases other male cast members with no intention of putting out.
* Kid-friendly example in ''Series/ICarly''. Carly mentions that she's making pińa colada lip gloss. When Freddie asks if it actually tastes like it, she asks him if he wants to find out. He eagerly agrees. She leans in... only for her to rub some of it on her hand and smoosh it against his lips.
* There is also a similar but slightly different scene in TwoAndAHalfMen, where naive Jake asked the same question to a girl and when she asked if he wanted to find out he said "sure". She leaned in for a kiss, but Jake scraped his finger over her lips then put it in his mouth. For what it's worth the TwoAndAHalfMen example aired about a year before the ''Series/ICarly'' example, although it may have been written before or around the same time as the two and a half men episode due to the very long lead time on ''Series/ICarly''.
* Ziva in ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' frequently sends Tony's blood pressure ridiculously high on purpose.
* Blair admits she's this on ''Series/TheFactsOfLife''.
* Played for laughs on ''Series/CriminalMinds'', in which the not-involved Morgan and Garcia mutually tease each other. Their sexy phone banter is seen usually once an episode, and while their team no longer even notices their outrageous flirtations, it tends to send others for a loop.
* Cat in {{Victorious}} is completely good-natured, but shown to be quite flirtatious.
* Kate Beckett in ''Series/{{Castle}}'' loves to drive ChivalrousPervert Rick Castle up the wall with her comments and her flirting. It's even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in one episode:
-->'''Castle:''' You should really moonlight [as a dominatrix]. Trust me -- you would make a ''fortune''. Come on, isn't there anything you would like to do with your handcuffs besides arresting criminals?\\
'''Beckett:''' No...''[seductively]'' but there is one hot, wild, ''kinky'' thing that I do like doing...\\
''[Castle's elbow slips off the table as he stares at her earnestly]''\\
'''Beckett:''' ''[Flatly]'' Putting killers behind bars.\\
'''Castle:''' ''[Disappointed]'' See, you're already a tease—you're halfway there.
** Deconstructed in the fourth season when, owing to a chain of misunderstandings and secrets, Castle eventually comes to believe that it really ''is'' all just a joke to her -- and, since he's fallen deeply in love with her by this point, does not take it well. Which causes a bigger mess when he starts lashing out, much to Beckett's hurt and confusion since she actually ''is'' in love with him as well.
* In a famous scene in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', renegade Slayer [[ReallyGetsAround Faith]] does a GrandTheftMe on Buffy and encounters [[StalkerWithACrush vampire Spike]] while dancing at the Bronze. She proceeds to explain in lurid detail exactly what a hot chick with SuperStrength could do to him if she wished, but then smirks and says, "But it would be wrong." Spike is needless to say furious, but thanks to his inhibitor chip can't do anything about her taunting. At least, not that season.
** And the actual Buffy does a FoeYay version when Spike first gets his RestrainingBolt, preventing him from biting humans.
-->'''Buffy''': Oh, look at my poor neck. All ''bare'' and ''tender'' and ''exposed''. All that blood just ''pum-ping'' away.
-->'''Spike''': Giles, make her stop!
** PlayedForDrama in "When She Was Bad". Suffering a HeroicBSOD after her first NotQuiteDead moment, Buffy lapses into AlphaBitch behaviour, doing a MatingDance with Xander at the Bronze, then after raising a hint of RescueSex, walking out on him.

* ''Hilde Wangel'' in both the plays she appears in,''Theatre/TheLadyFromTheSea'' and ''Theatre/TheMasterBuilder''.
* ''Theatre/MissJulie''. The titular character ''is'' this trope. At least until the end of the first act.

* "I Know What Boys Like", by The Waitresses.
* "Day Tripper" by Music/TheBeatles.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* [[Wrestling/CheerleaderMelissa Alissa Flash's]] gimmick (besides [[Wrestling/SherriMartel Sensational Sherri]] eye paint) used to be that she would wear a jacket that exposed a sports bra, and then zip it up so no one could see it. Can you image in fans in the Impact Zone booed her for this?
* This has become Wrestling/TheBeautifulPeople's gimmick, following their reunion in Wrestling/{{TNA}}, which began with Wrestling/AngelinaLove and Wrestling/VelvetSky promising to strip, [[ILied only to admit they lied.]] Love and Velvet have even leaned in almost mouth to mouth during their entrances, only to pull away when the camera zooms in and give nothing but a mocking {{finger wag}}.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'': Excellen Browning. What? Teasing your fellow pilots to see you in [[PlayboyBunny Bunny Suits]] doesn't count?
** Or walking around in nothing but a towel. Or mercilessly hitting on the guys she knows are either shy or easily flustered around women.
* Sylvia Christel from ''NoMoreHeroes'', almost sadistically so.
** To be fair, the person she's teasing is [[LovableSexManiac Travis.]] Watching him suffer is hilarious.
* Karura in ''{{Utawarerumono}}'' does this a lot. Although she's generally joking or simply, well, teasing, it's pretty clear she would like to be taken up on her offers.
* Judith from ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' loves making Raven faint.
-->'''[[MsFanservice Judith]]:''' I wonder if I should show a little more, you know...?
-->'''[[ChivalrousPervert Raven]]:''' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Oh, yes!]] OH ''GOD, YES!''
* Keiji from ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' is a male version, though he doesn't use his own charms. Rather, all he needs to do to make his favourite victim and resident ChasteHero Yukimura blush is mention that he should find someone to love.
* Sayoko Uehara, the character for ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''[='=]s Devil Social Link, makes her introduction by hitting on the protagonist, and does it some more for the next 3 or so levels of the S-Link. [[spoiler:Then she stops being playful as we see [[{{Workaholic}} another side of her]]...]]
** Rise Kujikawa is a more lighter version of this trope. After getting rescued by the Protagonist, [[RescueRomance she develops a crush]] on him. Unlike the other possible love interests in the game, Rise is really forward about her feelings, and constantly flirts with the Protag throughout the game.
* Anders accuses Hawke of this in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', but the responses that continue the romance are confirmations that Hawke is interested in going beyond flirting.
** Isabela however is this trope. She teases just about everyone during party banter, especially [[{{Adorkable}} Carver]] and [[TheAmazon Aveline]].
** [[{{Tsundere}} Morrigan]] is a milder version in the first game; she limits her teasing to [[PlayerCharacter the Warden]], [[TheStoic Sten]], and [[DeadpanSnarker Alistair]] but certainly does tease those three quite a bit.
** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOriginsAwakening'' comically reveals ''Oghren'' to be this; Sigrun finally responds to his drunken come-ons and he doesn't take her up on it, and she crows that he's all talk.
* Rouge the Bat from ''SonicTheHedgehog'' anyone? She sarcastically flirts with Knuckles, Shadow, Sonic, Tails, Eggman... (Though the first two could also be not so sarcastic.)
* Kyrie from ''VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable: The Gears of Destiny'', who hits on both [[ShrinkingViolet Fate]] ''[[BiTheWay and]]'' [[NotSoStoic Chrono]] during during her matches against them.
* Falls-From-Grace of ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment''. She's a succubus and she's not above joking about it, either.
** For instance, attempting to unequip her bodice:
-->''"We don't know each other well enough yet."''
-->''"I'm afraid if you were to remove that... I would be naked."''
** And equipping a ring:
-->''"Oh! Does this mean we are engaged?"''
-->''"A ring? Without a proposal? How improper!"''
* From ''QuestForGloryIII'', the Welcome Woman, Janna Jamir. The player can flirt with her, and some of her dialog doesn't so much [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar fly in under the radar as it does a full-scale suppression run]]. Nothing ever comes of it (though it's a good and quick way to build your Communication score), and it should also be pointed out that ''she's married''. Not that it stops her from often being the instigator of the exchanges. Additionally, she'll strike a sexy pose (well, by the standards of 256-color VGA graphics c.1992) when she goes to get your meal if you choose to flirt.
--> '''Janna:''' It is not just the room you warm with your sunshine, oh prince of passion. Your words inflame my cheeks, and other places.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Rin Tohsaka]] admits that she finds Shirou's reactions to her teasing/tormenting hilarious. He gets extremely embarrassed and shy just being alone with or near her or even just seeing her in ''non school clothing.'' On the other hand, she herself gets rather flustered by how straightforwardly honest he is. Although she is something of a love interest (confirmed to be in love with him in 3/4 routes he survives in and likely the fourth) she's not flirting, just [[{{TheGadfly}} enjoying his awkwardness.]]
** This gets turned on its head in the ''Unlimited Blade Works'' route, where she and Shirou actually do hook up. Shirou eventually starts getting her back by taking her jokes at face value, which in turn causes ''her'' to get all embarrassed and flustered. And then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQvQYHfc2Xs this scene]] from late in the route...
* Hiroki in ''{{Canvas 2}}'' enjoys flirting with his students. Contrary to what you might expect, he never gets in trouble for it.
* Sakazaki Yuuya of ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'' shows signs of this. He's a massive tease but his flirtations seem to be more for fun than serious - he's actually too busy to "take you somewhere nice" or just about anything else.
* Shion Sonozaki in ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'' likes to hit on Keiichi to make her twin sister Mion (who has a crush on him) jealous, by doing such things as squeezing his arm between her breasts. She doesn't have any real feelings for him though... at first. Compare with Mion, her [[{{TheGadFly}} gad fly sister]].
* Kurugaya from ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' loves to tease Riki by doing things like casually asking him to take a bath with her or sending him a photo of a striped piece of paper and telling him it's of her panties because she finds it adorable how flustered he invariably gets. It takes him a while to realise that, while she's very adept at dishing it out, she isn't at all used to getting it back, and when he starts teasing her a little after they start going out she gets every bit as flustered as he does.

* {{MAG ISA}} -- [[http://mag-isa.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/119614 Lucia teases Eman in order to get what she wants.]] (WARNING: NSFW)
* ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'': Emily does a [[http://www.misfile.com/index.php?page=1025 rather mean one.]]
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' has two. One [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2005-09-06 insists]] on {{shapeshifting}} into ''attractive'' females, and the other [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2008-05-19 combines]] it with being InnocentFanserviceGirl through having SingleTargetSexuality.
* Vanity Thorn from ''Webcomic/SequentialArt'' does it [[http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php?s=402 just for the lulz]].
* Bud of ''Webcomic/WapsiSquare'' is usually rather modest, but put her on the dance floor and [[http://wapsisquare.com/comic/enoughphilosophy/ she enjoys watching guys drown in their own saliva.]]
* In the {{fan|Fic}} [[{{Webcomic}} comic]] ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' we have Mr. King (aka the Erlkönig), who is a heterosexual male and to quote the fans a "bloody flirt" to several female characters (seems to try this with any woman who doesn't know him well enough).
* [[Webcomic/{{Oglaf}} Mistertique]], [[spoiler: a.k.a. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Clit Tease]]]] is a rare [[GenderFlipped heterosexual male example]]. His whole schtick involves seducing women, then leaving before actually doing the deed. Since, y'know, that would ruin the '''Masculine Mystique'''. ([[ForbiddenFruit Not that this makes him less desirable in-universe]].)

* Sarah does this to Danielbeast a bit in ''{{lonelygirl15}}'' series 1. Then she tells him to back off when she decides he's taking it too seriously.
* Gay male example: Jeremy acts like this toward Simon in ''Literature/ShadowOfTheTemplar'' even after they get into a sexual relationship, mainly because it flusters/irritates Simon and possibly also because it's the easiest way for him to [[CannotSpitItOut express his deeper feelings for him]].
* Ashe Gogus in ''IlivaisX'' certainly is this. Her comments are never overtly sexual, but she's extremely flaunty and every other sentence she spouts has something to do with boobs.
* Creator/DougWalker tends to act like this for fun and fanservice, even including jokingly flirting with his brother.
* Creator/BradJones' wife has shown shades of this during Softly Through Cable.
* Dr. Tease from WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick's show. Her full name is basically a pun for "cocktease".
* In WebVideo/DragonballAbridged, Bulma is accused of being a cocktease by Krillin.
* In WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries, Mai Valentine does this, especially just to see Joey squirm.

* Recap/JusticeLeagueUnlimitedS2E4TaskForceX: After Colonel Flag introduces Lawton to Sans Souci as the explosives expert:
-->'''Lawton:''' ''I know, I've seen the pictures.''
-->'''Sans Souci, smiling:''' ''And that's all you're gonna get to see, killer.''
* ''WesternAnimation/GForce'': Juarez to Darwin and Blaster. When Darwin complains about her keeping them in confusion and desparation, she replies that is exactly how she likes it.
