Define, move examples into appropriate existing tropes: Heterosexual Life Partners get usage counts
- Bart and Milhouse. These are two straight 10-year-old boys and best friends.
- Lou and Chief Wiggum. These are straight men, partners on the job, whose relationship sometimes mirrors a romantic one.
- Lenny and Carl. For a while, their relationship saw humor similar to Lou and Wiggum's. But they have also sometimes been directly implied to have an actual romantic relationship.
- Smithers and Burns. Smithers is an openly gay man who fantasizes sexually about his boss, who considers him his best friend.
- Move all examples of homoerotic subtext/bromance to Homoerotic Subtext.
- Move all examples of platonic life partners (some opposite sex ones made it to Heterosexual Life-Partners) to Platonic Life Partners.
- Move all examples of ho yay to Ho Yay.

- Fresh Prince OF Bel Air: Misuse. The pair are best friends; the example describes their comedic Homoerotic Subtext; they are not life partners
- Terry O'Quinn: Misuse. He is friends with Michael Emerson, the two are not life partners.
- WWE Attitude: Misuse. Refers to a trio; not part of this trope.
- The Wooing of Beppo Tate: No Context Example.
- Y Tu Mamá También: Misuse. The characters have sex.
- Uber Haxor Nova: Unclear, but the phrase "either that or full on Ho Yay" leaves me pessimistic.
- The Mr. Men Show: No Context Example, but I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.
- Undying Loyalty: Misuse. It's potholed from "Kirk" in "Kirk and Spock," which is fine, but "Spock" is then potholes to "Ho Yay," so the editor does not understand the concept properly.
- Triang Relations: I'll go with Correct use, even though it immediately goes on to refer to potential Homoerotic Subtext. Also, wow, this is a cool page.
- Western Animation: Potholed from "friends." Ambiguous, but I;ll say Correct use.
- The Most Epic Demonic Conquest Ever: Misuse. Potholed from a name in a list under Unwanted Harem; the previous name potholed to Ho Yay.
- The Wario Barker Collection: Potholed from two characters who have a daughter, so I'd assume they're more than what we call heterosexual life partners.
- Theme Music Power-Up: Unclear.
- Took a Level in Dumbass: Potholed from best friend. Are SpongeBob and his best friend life partners? If so, I'll say Correct use.
- Video Game/Ys: No Context Example.
- Veggie Tales: No Context Example.
- The Hidden Fortress: No Context Example.
- The Eastern Europe Soap Opera: Misuse. Listed as "Heterosexual Life-Partners - Ho Yay."
- Sexy Shirt Switch: Troy and Abed from Community, and it's kind of pushing the definition, but let's say Correct use.
- Romy And Michele's High School Reunion: No Context Example. A couple lines later, incidentally, describes the characters' Les Yay.
- Rocky and Bullwinkle: Correct use.
- Platonic Prostitution: Misuse. Applied to two friends who are not life partners.
- Penélope Cruz: Misuse. She and Salma Hayek are friends.
- Homestuck Trolls Five: Misuse. Supposedly, for one character, "with everyone by this point."
- Initiant Caliber: No Context Example.
- Kare Kano: No Context Example.
- Lover and Beloved: Misuse. Two characters who "experiment with mutual masturbation."
- Ratchet & Clank: No Context Example.
- Selena Gomez: Misuse. No, she isn't life partners with those two other girl singers.
- Táin Bó Cúailnge: Potholed to "best and most intimate friend. Correct use?
