Category "Manhwa?" Is that supposed to be Manga? I am not familiar with the works referenced...

Manhwa are Korean comics; the Korean version of manga.

  • Aru Akise spends the whole second chapter of Future Diary — Paradox denying that's he's gay, despite having a blatant crush on the male protagonist. When finally badgered enough, he admits that "it's love", but still maintains he doesn't swing for boys.
Quick question: Did Aru EVER show any interest in girls? This trope is when someone shows interest in a single person outside his/her standard preferences, if someone shows interest in only one person AT ALL it's Single-Target Sexuality.
  • Played straight and subverted in Doushitemo Furetakunai: The main character is actually gay, but captures the attention of several 'straight guys' during the story. One of the 'straight guys' falling for him later gets into spotlight and falls for another gay character, but takes a lot of time for it so it still can be considered this trope.
Looks pretty messy to me. Judging from this alone guy in question was bi, and if he had shown interest in more than one guy it doesn't really belong here. Just because it took really long time doesn't matter, it only shows that he wasn't cheating on his boyfriend.

Not necessarily, considering that just because someone is asexual (like myself) it doesn't mean that they're attracted to that person DESPITE the first person's sexuality (given that the implication of the trope, after all, is that their attraction to someone is considered outside the purview of their sexuality. For example, if someone was gay and liked a member of the opposite sex because they had the same characteristics that they usually liked in those of the same sex, that would not be called Single Target Sexuality. Would it...?). It may very well be because of their sexuality. So, I would say, it depends....

Would continuing to be attracted to a transgender after their transformation fall under this category? For example, a man is dating a girl who turns out to be a FTM (female-to-male) but he's completely supportive of his partner and even continues to be attracted to him even when he looks clearly male or at least androgynous, but this male is otherwise straight.

Seems like it would be.

Let's pick a new pic. This one's more like "Even The Lesbians Want Him because he's a Memetic Sex God" than "one character averts Incompatible Orientation (or other discouraging factor) for just one other character".

Why dont we use real life examples? It isnt a negetive trope, is it? I remember an autobiographical webcomic that used this trope, so you cant put it on here as a webcomic without it also being real life, right?

Edit: Found webcomic, its called DAR!

No, that would be fine, because it's an actual published work. The fact that it's autobiographical is neither here nor there (and indeed, many "autobiographies" may be largely or even completely fictional, and we don't really care one way or the other about that either, at least for troping purposes).

I think the "no real life examples" rule in this case is less about negativity and more about preventing the section from turning into "Troper Tales in all but name". Like the section might quickly fill up with entries like:

  • This Troper is a happily married straight girl, but she'd do Angelina Jolie in a heartbeat!

Then what about this one? I don't see a subheading for it, either.
