Isidro of Berserk a Chick Magnet? For only two girls? And where is showed that Shirke (one of the two of abowe) has something for him?

Is Guts really an example of this? Most of the women falling for him are given perfectly justified reasons why they do so. And there are plenty of women in Berserk who show no interest in him.

So um, the image of Bruce Wayne is cute and all, but I'm in love with this hilarious photoshoot of Benedict Cumberbatch. Particularly the bottom-center one. I think it sums up the trope quite nicely. Does anybody else agree with me?

Not really. Half of them don't even look like they're caressing him - just sort of awkwardly slapping their hand on him.

That was my point. XD

Not an example as written. Ship Tease is a different article we need specifics about how these characters function as this trope.

  • Homestuck: John, Dave Strider, Tavros and Sollux. John was shipteased with Rose, and most notably Vriska. Dave has received similar ship tease with Terezi and Jade. Tavros is a bit less lucky attracting the likes of the aforementioned Vriska Serket who's idea of flirting seems to be bullying relentlessly. And also Gamzee Makara...which is a whole other can of worms. Lastly is Sollux who has had canon relationships with Aradia and Feferi.

I'd like revive a crucial topic from the archived discussion and call a troper referendum on splitting Dude Magnet from Chick Magnet.

Seconded, although I think Dude Magnet is already a separate trope — it's called Hello, Nurse!. At the very least, Dude Magnet should redirect to Hello, Nurse!. Dude Magnet is also arguably a much better name than Hello, Nurse!, but that discussion is already happening in Hello, Nurse!'s Trope Repair Shop at the time of this post.

I'm confused as to why the Chick Magnet description calls Hello, Nurse! the female version of Chick Magnet if there is a folder of female Chick Magnet examples. This would make sense if it contained examples of female characters with many (in-work) female admirers, but instead I'm seeing examples that, according to the Chick Magnet page itself, should be in Hello, Nurse!.

Is this just a case of the female folder needing cleanup?

Well, what I'm confused about is the fact that a Chick Magnet will unintentionally attract a considerable number of female love interests/fangirls, and Hello, Nurse! also attracts a harem, but it may or may not be intentional. She's really just a sort of in-universe Ms. Fanservice, as opposed to a Dude Magnet, who in theory never intended to gain a harem.
