* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' has [[HelloNurse Sheena]] [[HighlyVisibleNinja Fujibayashi]], who has a number of NPCS hitting on her and some heavy ShipTease with both Lloyd and Zelos. [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan She seems to have a thing for Lloyd]], but he's oblivious and she's too {{Tsundere}} to come out and say it.

*** Said guardian, Sojiro Sakura, heavily hints that he used to be Chick Magnet in the past. Though the loss of [[TheLostLenore his adopted daughter's mother]] has disheartened him from his old womanizing ways, the fact that he knows what to say to convince nine different women (ten in ''Royal'') to give his ward another chance ('he loves you, it was a misunderstanding,etc' ) in less than a day (even if one of them is the aforementioned daughter) speaks for itself.

*** Protagonist [[CanonName Ren Amamiya]]/[[FanNickname Akira Kurusu]] can simultaneously attract the attention of every last female party member and most of the female [=NPCs=], for a total of ''nine'' women he can romance (''ten'' in ''[[UpdatedRerelease Persona 5 Royal]]''). This includes a StudentCouncilPresident, a model, a rich {{Ojou}}, a shogi player, a recovering {{Hikikomori}}, a former political reporter, a fortune teller, a medical doctor, and his [[TeacherStudentRomance homeroom teacher]] (plus a gymnast in ''Royal''). However, date more than one, and no amount of charm will stop them from beating him up for it (but even then, it's implied he's still able to salvage his relationships afterwards thanks to some excellent wingmanship from his guardian).

* [[AntiHero Ragna the Bloodedge]] of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' is {{Ship Tease}}d with Noel, Rachel and Taokaka, and Nu [[StalkerWithACrush is always eager to stalk Ragna]], who is hers and hers ''[[{{Yandere}} only]]''.

* Marumaro of ''VideoGame/BlueDragon'', [[TheScrappy for all his faults]], turns into one of these in Kelaso village. He also manages to score [[MsFanservice the hottest chick in the game!]]
* ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'''s flagship badass, Dante.

''[[VideoGame/DevilMayCry5 5]]'' does implicitly [[ShipSinking put the kibosh]] on Dante/Lady by suggesting they have a mutual understanding due to their circumstances and more of a JustFriends relationship, and [[spoiler:the game ends with him and Vergil willingly trapped within Demon World to prevent demons from overrunning the human world]], so it's hard to tell if this is [[CelibateHero a sign]] from Hideaki Itsuno and his team.


** Main character [[CanonName Yu Narukami]]/[[FanNickname Souji Seta]]/etc. of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' is just as popular as Minato with girls (maybe even more popular). And unlike ''Persona 3'', he can max out his female friends' Social Links ''without'' having to become their boyfriend. His "harem" (if you choose to gather it) includes the tomboy, the old money rich girl, the new money rich girl, the IdolSinger, the SweetPollyOliver, the two underclassmen girls who are mutually exclusive, and the ApocalypseMaiden. Romancing all of them will net you a scene on Valentine's Day where you have to break all but one of their hearts, and the implication that they know you're cheating on them, YouBastard.
** In ''VideoGame/Persona4ArenaUltimax'', Ken Amada from ''Persona 3'' seems to have stepped into his upperclassman Akihiko's shoes in this regard. His opening cutscene shows a sizable, dedicated fanclub of girls cheering for him during a soccer match... who he politely acknowledges and dismisses. Though he's not as awkward with them as Akihiko, Ken doesn't seem to pay them much attention--he clearly has more important priorities on his mind.

* The main character of ''VideoGame/DuelSaviorDestiny'', Taiga, is really rather popular with girls, a fact he exploits to no end. Before the story properly begins he's having a bit of trouble getting dates. That is, getting ''enough'' dates since he's working on a plan to get a hundred girlfriends at once, which is only becoming difficult because of the rumors his clingy little sister spreads.
* ''VideoGame/EternalSonata'''has Jazz, who has Claves ([[spoiler:The mole, killed off, but can later be resurrected.]]) as his lover, Falsetto as the envious childhood friend, and Viola, a member of the party who falls for him as they continue their journey but can't bring herself to admit her feelings out loud to him.
* ''VideoGame/FableI'': The Hero of Oakvale's attractiveness is affected by his Renown and KarmaMeter. Once he becomes a LivingLegend and if he's entirely Good, he can walk through town in a nice set of clothes and have a sizable fraction of the local women ([[GayOption and men]]) start commenting about wedding rings. They'll accept if he proposes, too.
* ''VideoGame/FatalFury'': Rock Howard [[RaisedByDudes spent most of his adolescence in the company of men]], thus explaining his easily-flustered nature around the opposite sex [[note]]considering [[ParentalNeglect his]] [[ParentalAbandonment life]] after his mother's death/before Terry [[HappilyAdopted adopted him]], this is ''still'' the better alternative[[/note]]. While this doesn't affect him much in ''Garou: Mark of the Wolves'', he gets hit full force by this trope in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters: [[AlternateContinuity Maximum Impact]] 2''. He does so much as ''breathe'', and yet [[ElegantGothicLolita Ninon]] [[{{Ojou}} Beart]] [[BettyAndVeronica and]] [[PirateGirl Bonne]] [[TheTease Jenet]] [[LoveTriangle all but throw themselves at him]] ([[LoverTugOfWar they even fight over]] "custody" of Rock in their intro poses against one another). It doesn't help that he's [[{{Adorkable}} a lovable dork]] in these scenes and [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan a kindhearted young man by default]].
* By raising the bond level of their accrued Servants, the PlayerCharacter of ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' can gain their affection. It's actually easier to count the ones that aren't in love with their Master, which would be [[GameFavoredGender most male Servants]], female Servants that have longer standing {{Love Interest}}s (Artoria, Medea, Nero, Tamamo[[note]]And yet, alternate versions who never met those love interests exist in-game[[/note]]), or are just [[JustFriends uninterested in them that way]] (Helena, Sheba, Irisviel). Of course, as ''Fate'' veteran [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight EMIYA]] explains, female Servants aren't the most entirely sane people, meaning the protagonist tends to suffer by having all these powerful and volatile women in close proximity, to say nothing of the likes of [[{{Yandere}} Kiyohime]].
* Many protagonists of [=RPGs=], in particular the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series, display this trope, with [[EscapistCharacter half of the female cast falling for them on sight]].
** Cloud Strife from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is a notorious offender. Despite being a jerk, nearly every woman in the game either falls for him on sight, develops a crush on him or ''can'' soften towards him if Cloud treats them nicely, ranging from romantic heroines to likeable female sidekicks to FanserviceExtra [=NPCs=]. Played for laughs in ''VideoGame/MobiusFinalFantasy'' where Echo is immediately attracted to him and can't understand why anybody else wouldn't be.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' plays with this by casting a childlike wannabe ladies' man as the ''protagonist''.
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'''s Isaac has a good hint of this, having ShipTease moments with Jenna, Mia, Feizhi, Jill (the girl who'd been transformed into a tree), and an unnamed little girl in Altin (who offers him a kiss in thanks for driving away the statue monsters).
** However, in ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'' he is outpaced: NPC gossip indicates sweet ShelteredAristocrat Amiti to be the sweetheart of ''the entire female population of his homeland''.
* One of the endings in ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon1'' can be unlocked if you are unmarried but courted all five of the bachelorettes. It has them chasing Pete around town.
* ''VideoGame/InfiniteSpace'' has two examples: [[TheHero Yuri]] (who apparently has UnwantedHarem) and [[BunnyEarsLawyer Lord Roth]]. The latter often appears being surrounded by fangirls whenever Yuri sees him, something that he seems to enjoy (to [[{{Sidekick}} Nele's]] chagrin).
* In ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', several incarnations of series protagonist Link are definitely this:
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', he has Malon, [[PuppyLove Saria]] (before [[NeverGrewUp Link grew up]]), [[ChildhoodMarriagePromise Zora Princess Ruto]], and possibly Nabooru all demonstrating some attraction to him. WordOfGod has stated his faithful FairyCompanion, Navi, and even the titular Princess Zelda also have some feelings for him. The only major female character who ''doesn't'' express some form of affection toward him was Impa, who is more of a mentor figure and ''far'' too old for him. Not bad for someone who [[HeroicMime never speaks]], and is essentially a 9-year-old in a 16-year-old's body in the second half of the game.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds A Link Between Worlds]]'', he has ShipTease with Zelda as well as a grown woman in Kakariko Village.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker The Wind Waker]]'' it's much more subdued given most main characters are children, but Link still has ShipTease with both Tetra[[spoiler:/Zelda]] and Medli, and the Fairy Queen outright says that he's her type.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', not only does he get Midna and Ilia, but the girl who runs the fishing hole seemed to have a definite thing for him. Then there's the group of fangirls he gains by making it through the clawshot minigame in Hyrule Town. Telma also has a thing for him as shown by her flirtatious winks. Then there's Beth who also likes him -- though it's more like PuppyLove, and later in the game, she seems to move on to Colin and then Prince Ralis.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'', Link presumably has Ghirahim all over him, as well as Peatrice (only as long as Link accepts her feelings in the dating sidequest), Kina, Zelda AND Fi. In the case of Kina, not only she proclaims to be a fan of his if the player performs flawlessly in the harp minigame, but the conversations between the two also spark jealousy regarding her from another NPC.
** The ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Oracle]]'' games' Link is popular, too. There's the titular Oracles, Zelda, Malon, possibly Maple, [[InterspeciesRomance Rosa the Subrosian, the Maku Tree of Labrynna]]... and in the unofficial ''Oracle of Seasons'' manga, ''Link's own pet Cucco''.
** The plot of ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'' is kicked off because [[VillainousCrush one of the main antagonists has intense feelings for Link]] and [[GreenEyedMonster just as intense jealousy]] toward [[ReincarnationRomance Zelda]].
** In Creator/{{Nintendo}} crossover ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' for the Wii U, even Viridi from ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' (one of Pit's [[GreekChorus mission control voices]]) and Princess Peach from ''Franchise/SuperMarioBrothers'' develop feelings for him (the later was mostly in the promotional material though).
** Taken to perhaps its logical limit in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]''; seemingly everyone from the shopkeepers to Impa's granddaughter has a thing for Link, with [[spoiler:Princess Mipha of the Zora intending to propose to him, Kodah mentioning having had a crush on him when she was younger, and the conclusion of Kass's subplot revealing that Princess Zelda herself is in love with Link]]. On top of that, you can catch several female Zoras squeeing over him.
* Roland, the protagonist of ''VideoGame/LuminousArc2'', ''weaponizes'' his chick magnet status by using some of the superpowers of any woman he can kiss, though he's always [[ChasteHero a little embarrassed]].
* A male Shepard of ''Franchise/MassEffect'', if you don't play him as a ''complete'' dick. Over the course of the trilogy, he can have a romantic relationship with [[ActionGirl Ashley Williams]], [[HotScientist Dr Liara T'Soni]], [[WrenchWench Tali'Zorah]], [[DefrostingIceQueen Miranda Lawson]], [[BrokenBird Jack]], [[BridgeBunny Kelly Chambers]], [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Kaidan Alenko]], [[AcePilot Steve Cortez]], and Diana Allers. He has ShipTease with Samara, Gianna Parsini, and Shiala, possibly has a ([[OutWithABang very brief]]) encounter with Morinth, and gets a breeding request from at least one krogan.
** The Shadow Broker's records suggests ''[[MagnificentBastard the Illusive Man]]'' is trying to be a bigger Chick Magnet than Shepard.
** Garrus is seen as AlwaysSecondBest to Shepard, but the guy certainly has something the ladies like. Dr Michel sends him chocolate aboard the Normandy, Kelly Chambers finds him adorable, [[spoiler:Tali hooks up with him if she doesn't with Shep]], and his Citadel scene is him having a date with a turian lady. And of course he can romance [=FemShep=] herself - after narrating the way he [[UnusualEuphemism let off Steam]] with a fellow scout when in was in the army.
* [[MyHeroZero Zero]] from ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' and ''[[VideoGame/MegaManZero Zero]]'' had 3 girls who had been attracted to him. One became his [[ILetGwenStacyDie tragic]] girlfriend, while another had the unfortunate luck of meeting Zero when he's ''both'' [[ChasteHero chaste]] ''and'' [[CelibateHero celibate]] at the same time. As for the third, ''[[InterspeciesRomance Ciel's human]]''. If you count the FoeYay that comes from Fairy Leviathan of the Four Guardians (which gets dialed down into simple teasing with [[VideoGame/MegaManZX Model Z and Model L]]), that makes four.
* ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'': [=MegaMan=] Volnutt may have the high score for this series. There's Roll Casket his [[LikeBrotherAndSister foster sister]], [[JustFriends best friend]], and [[WrenchWench mechanic]]. Tron Bonne, the [[DatingCatwoman cute girl]] of his overzealous [[{{Tsundere}} off and on]] enemies of circumstance. Yuna, a [[TheTease flirt]] temporarily controlling [[{{Squick}} Roll's mother]]. Sera a [[DarkSkinnedBlond dark skinned green haired]] quiet girl that had given both a NakedFirstImpression and [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove quite a touching]] [[DefeatMeansFriendship near death revelation]]. Volnutt also has [[YouALLLookFamiliar at least four]] NPC girls profess infatuation to him in some way beyond the trend much more predominant in the first game to have every female citizen model passingly mention that he was cute.
* ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'': Despite his nerdiness, occasionally Guybrush Threepwood falls into this. Elaine seems to initially fall for him just after hearing his name from the lookout. The [[spoiler:ghost bride in the Goodsoup crypt]] starts coming onto him immediately (granted, she's been waiting a LONG time for a man). He's oblivious that [[spoiler:Morgan]] seems to have feelings for him beyond typical fangirlishness. And the Vacaylian merfolk practically throw themselves at him, [[spoiler:to his extreme discomfort, as he can't tell ''what'' [[AmbiguousGender gender they are]]]].
* ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'', which from the third game onward has given its protagonists the option to romance their female friends through LevelUpAtIntimacy5, VisualNovel-esque vignettes. The earlier games lack the social sim aspect, but their protagonists are definitely chick magnets too.
** The protagonist of the first ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' has at least three girls known to be interested in him. The two that get to appear in the second game are still into him despite the time that has passed.
** Tatsuya Suou from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'' is explicitly shown to be a chick magnet. Almost all the female cast wants him, major or minor characters. Even some of the guys want him.
** ''VideoGame/Persona3'':
*** Protagonist [[FanNickname Minato Arisato]]/[[Anime/Persona3TheMovie Makoto Yuki]]/etc. starts off all his relationships with girls as just friends, but they quickly move things along and, whether he likes it or not, he becomes their boyfriend if their Social Links are maxed. His "harem" includes the popular girl, the rich girl, the nerdy girl, the bookworm, the tomboy, a robot, and a transdimensional elevator attendant. He also attracts the affections of both a little girl and [[HotForStudent his homeroom teacher]] (with the former even proposing to him).
*** Akihiko Sanada, who as the "cool upperclassman" type is frequently swarmed by fangirls at school. Unlike the protagonist, Akihiko is mostly annoyed by the attention and proves to be shy and awkward when trying to approach girls directly, to his detriment.
** Main character [[CanonName Yu Narukami]]/[[FanNickname Souji Seta]]/etc. of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' is just as popular as Minato with girls (maybe even more popular). And unlike ''Persona 3'', he can max out his female friends' Social Links ''without'' having to become their boyfriend. His "harem" (if you choose to gather it) includes the tomboy, the old money rich girl, the new money rich girl, the IdolSinger, the SweetPollyOliver, the two underclassmen girls who are mutually exclusive, and the ApocalypseMaiden. Romancing all of them will net you a scene on Valentine's Day where you have to break all but one of their hearts, and the implication that they know you're cheating on them, YouBastard.
** In ''VideoGame/Persona4ArenaUltimax'', Ken Amada from ''Persona 3'' seems to have stepped into his upperclassman Akihiko's shoes in this regard. His opening cutscene shows a sizable, dedicated fanclub of girls cheering for him during a soccer match... who he politely acknowledges and dismisses. Though he's not as awkward with them as Akihiko, Ken doesn't seem to pay them much attention--he clearly has more important priorities on his mind.
** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'':
*** Protagonist [[CanonName Ren Amamiya]]/[[FanNickname Akira Kurusu]] can simultaneously attract the attention of every last female party member and most of the female [=NPCs=], for a total of ''nine'' women he can romance. This includes a StudentCouncilPresident, a model, a rich {{Ojou}}, a shogi player, a recovering {{Hikikomori}}, a former political reporter, a fortune teller, a medical doctor, and his [[TeacherStudentRomance homeroom teacher]]. However, date more than one, and no amount of charm will stop them from beating him up for it (but even then, it's implied he's still able to salvage his relationships afterwards thanks to some excellent wingmanship from his guardian).
*** Sojiro Sakura, said guardian, heavily hints that he used to be Chick Magnet in the past. Though the loss of [[TheLostLenore his adopted daughter's mother]] has disheartened him from his old womanizing ways, the fact that he knows what to say to convince nine different women to give his ward another chance ('he loves you, it was a misunderstanding,etc' ) in less than a day (even if one of them is the aforementioned daughter) speaks for itself.
* The Hero from the ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory'' series. The Fairies in ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryI'' tease one of their number for having a crush on you (she denies it) and he can flirt with the Centaur farmer's daughter. Dinarzad the Money Changer from ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryII'' flirts with him heavily, and if the Hero is a Thief so does ''the entire Raseir harem''. ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryIII'' has the Leopardwoman Johari, with whom the Hero can share a kiss (though she agrees to marry Yesufu at the end of the game) and the Welcome Woman who runs the local inn in Tarna flirts ''very'' heavily with you, even though ''she's married''. Not even ''dead women'' are immune to the Hero's charms in ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryIV'', namely [[spoiler:Erana]], the Rusalka, and [[spoiler:Katrina]], and it's implied that Magda, leader of the Gypsies, finds the Hero quite attractive, though admits she's much too old for him. ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryV'' manages to top them ''all'': [[spoiler:[[BackFromTheDead Erana, Katrina]]]], Elsa von Spielberg, and Nawar are all courtable love interests, the Hero also gets a lot of flirting from Nawar's fellow ex-harem girl Budar, Gnome Anne shows a bit of an attraction to the Hero, and ''[[EvenTheGuysWantHim Rakeesh]]'' admits he would consider marrying him if he weren't already married.
* Clank, Ratchet's RobotBuddy from the ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' series has a strange habit of attracting various women, both robotic and organic. This starts with Edwina the [=RoboShack=] owner and the [=HelpDesk=] Girl in the first game, then a pink robot fangirl spends the next game chasing him over the galaxy in the next game, then in the third game, he gets to play a James Bond-esque secret agent surrounded by adoring women, has pop star seductress Courtney Gears move in on him, in the fourth game, he begins a relationship with a robot called Venus (who is never seen again), in the Secret Agent Clank spinoff, all women in the game are in love with him. Meanwhile, the only definite love interest Ratchet has ever had is Sasha (Talwyn from the Future series seems to be on her way to becoming one, too, though).
* {{Hunk}}-y Arthur from ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption2'' certainly gets a lot of female attention throughout the game. Especially if you keep him well groomed. It's in a AllGirlsWantBadBoys way. He's got an official LoveInterest (his recently widowed [[OldFlame ex]]) but some of the side quest characters and even a couple of the girls in the gang seem to have a crush on him and random women on the street will call him handsome too. Just don't [[BerserkButton call him]] a PrettyBoy.
* Leon S. Kennedy from ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' has considerable ShipTease with just about every woman he interacts with, and seems to be [[GirlOfTheWeek partnered]] with a different female protagonist for just about every adventure. These are mostly of the BodyguardCrush variety, while the one consistent woman in his life is the mysterious spy, [[DatingCatwoman Ada Wong]]. Their relationship is officially summarized as "complicated".
* Ein from ''VideoGame/RivieraThePromisedLand'', who develops five love interests throughout the game.
* ''VideoGame/ShiningResonance'': All of the playable female characters fall for Yuma for various reasons and he's free to date as many of them as he wants, without consequence. If the player chooses, Yuma can MarryThemAll. The game even encourages it to facilitate seeing all of their character endings.
* ''VideoGame/ShinSuperRobotWars'': Despite being a mecha {{otaku}} with no knowledge on romance with women nor interest in them, Ryusei Date has managed to make no less than three girls seriously fall for him in the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Original Generation series]]. In the scene where the Londo Bell meets Ryusei Date during the Space Route in ''Shin'', he manages to make [[Anime/MazingerZ Kouji Kabuto]] jealous of Sayaka Yumi for once instead of the reverse. This is considerably more than most other characters with the exception of Masaki, who is himself a Chick Magnet.
* Vyse, the hero of ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' is a real hit with the ladies. Over the course of the game he attracts the affections of his redheaded partner Aika, the MysteriousWaif Fina, [[TheDarkChick the Valuan admiral Belleza]], several minor characters such as all three of [[AmazonBrigade the Ixa'ness Demons]] and various barmaids and shopkeeper [=NPCs=], the [[AbhorrentAdmirer butterball moneylender Osman]]... Heck, [[EvenTheGuysWantHim even Daikokuya likes him]]. Being a gentleman rogue, he never acts on any of them.
* The title character of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' is somewhat portrayed this way in the games, even getting a ''[[InterspeciesRomance human]]'' character to fall in love with him, however this isn't to the extent of the [[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog Archie Comics]]. As he says in ''VideoGame/SonicBattle'': "Got enough girls chasing me as it is."
* ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}'':
** Random women hitting on Flik is something of a running gag. In the first game, one character only joins the group on the condition that he'll go on a date with her, and in [[VideoGame/SuikodenII the second]] he gets several more fangirls; one even has a Unite Attack with him where she breaks out in a LuminescentBlush.
** In ''VideoGame/SuikodenIV'', the hero recruits an awful lot of women, and at least two cliques of three get together to gush and giggle over him. One of said cliques even declares themselves his personal bodyguards.
** The Prince of Falena, in ''VideoGame/SuikodenV''. Several characters and [=NPCs=] [[LampshadeHanging comment on the large number of attractive women in his army]], to the point of it being a RunningGag. The more lecherous characters seem almost offended that he never takes advantage of the situation, or even seems to notice.
* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'':
** Mario in the ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' games is treated as such. Any female character who has something to say about him that isn't a villain is mostly likely to regard him as handsome, charming or both. Even outside ''Paper Mario'', Peach is his ImpliedLoveInterest, Pauline was formerly his girlfriend, and Daisy took a shine to him post-rescue before she started being Luigi's answer to Peach. Toadette is sometimes shown to have a crush on him. Even Wendy O. Koopa thinks he's cute. Just about the only main female character who hasn't shown any real interest in him is Rosalina.
** In ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'', not only Count Bleck is StarCrossedLovers with [[spoiler:[[ExpositionFairy Tippi]]]], but each of his female lieutenants, Nastasia and Mimi, expresses some level of affection toward him.
* Both Celric and Hopes fall for [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsX Amari Aquamarine]] on her route in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsX''. On both routes, the Library entries confirm Iori's been interested in her [[spoiler:even since before they came to Al-Warth]].
* Despite being a self-professed women-hater, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsZ Crowe Broust]] of the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ series'' has a ridiculous amount of women who are interested in him. Esther, Marguerite and Kravia all have obvious crushes on him, Traia appears to be invested in keeping him around, if only for trolling value, Marilyn has a [[TermsOfEndangerment pet nickname]] for him, and Suzune even swoons briefly at how 'cool' he is when he first appears in ''Tengoku-hen'', even previous protagonist Setsuko falls for him.
* ''VideoGame/TalesSeries'':
** Guy from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss''. Unfortunately he also suffers from severe gynophobia and thus ends up freaking himself out every time he accidentally manages to charm a girl to take interest in him.
** [[ObliviousToLove Flynn]] from ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' has women throwing themselves to him for as long as his childhood friend can remember. The party's ChivalrousPervert takes him to pick up girls only to find that girls swarm over Flynn, ignoring him.
** While it's rather downplayed in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' (only really gaining the affections of Colette and Sheena), Lloyd Irving definitely counts in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld'' (as every female variation of the Flanoir event is romantic, even with his teacher, as well as the [[spoiler: actually 28, but looks 12 because of stunted growth]] GlacierWaif).
* Mike Munroe in ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'' has three girls after him over the course of the game: [[AmicableExes Emily]], [[OfficialCouple Jessica]], and [[AllLoveIsUnrequited Hannah]]. [[spoiler: Josh]] suggests Ashley might also be after him if Chris shows interest in her, plus all that ShipTease with Samantha.
* Shulk wins the affections of Fiora and has Melia crushing on him in ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}''. [[spoiler: When he is shot in the back by Dickson, literally every woman in the party are the first to react and ''[[SayMyName cry out his name in unison]]'' as they rush to his aid. Cut to a shot of Melia kneeling beside him as Sharla performs CPR on his chest, Fiora overlooking.]]
* Adol Christin of the ''VideoGame/{{Ys}}'' series tends to get a good deal of female attention. One expects a wave of red-haired kids to cause trouble throughout Eresia in a couple decades.

!!Female
* The Duchess in ''VideoGame/EmbricOfWulfhammersCastle'' has multiple [[MultipleEndings possible]] love interests, is the subject of numerous crushes, and is pursued by more {{Abhorrent Admirer}}s than she cares to remember.
* Ayumi Tachibana of the ''[[VideoGame/DetectiveClub Famicom Detective Club]]'' games is said to have the admiration of the male student body at Ushimitsu High School, the high school she attends, and one of the male passersby you try to talk to [[spoiler:while desperately trying to search for her after she drugged you to look for Tazaki on her own]] regarding Ayumi refers to her as a "cute lil' chickadee".
* Pamela from ''VideoGame/ManaKhemiaAlchemistsOfAlrevis''. She's a ''very'' {{moe}}, '''''very''''' CuteGhostGirl. The ghost part doesn't deter guys (even the ''principal''!) from courting her.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** A female Shepard almost matches her male counterpart, who can have a relationship with [[BiTheWay Lt Kaiden Alenko]], [[HotScientist Dr Liara T'Soni]], [[NiceGuy Jacob Taylor]], [[TroubledButCute Thane Krios]], [[CowboyCop Garrus Vakarian]], [[BridgeBunny Kelly Chambers]], [[LipstickLesbian Samantha Traynor]], and Diana Allers. She has ShipTease with Tali'Zorah Vas Neema, Samara, Mordin, James Vega, and Shiala, Zaeed Massani admits that he's 'always thought [she] was beautiful', possibly has a ([[OutWithABang very brief]]) encounter with Morinth, gets a breeding request from at least one (female) krogan, a ''geth'' clearly has a crush on her, and the ''Citadel'' DLC makes it possible for her to have a one-night stand with [[spoiler:''Javik''.]]
** Surprisingly, [[WrenchWench Tali]] gets almost as much attention from the guys as female Shepard. She's a potential love interest for a male Shepard , one of only two recurring squadmates who can end up with a love interest who ''isn't'' Shepard (namely, [[spoiler:Garrus, the other squadmate]]), and she draws positive attention from Joker, Kenneth, Kal'Reegar, [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer Jack, Kelly,]] and even ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SR3CMuKoC7c Javik]]'' in a way, in addition to the above ShipTease with a female Shepard. Also, if Shepard romances Tali, Liara comments in the Shadow Broker DLC that she saw Tali as competition for Shepard's affections back on the first Normandy- notable because Liara is a member of a [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe species]] whose [[PlanetOfHats Hat]] is being ridiculously attractive.
** [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Liara]] too. In addition to a Shepard of either sex, she has ShipTease with both Feron and Javik, Kaidan calls her "easy on the eyes", Grunt develops a crush on her, and Garrus starts giving her the eye after drinking a lot.
* The [[DistaffCounterpart female protagonist]] of ''VideoGame/Persona3 [[VideoGameRemake Portable]]''. Junpei (the only male in SEES [[PlatonicLifePartners she cannot have a romantic relationship with]]) notes that a number of guys he talks to are interested in her. At least two of her Social Links develop feelings for her, although she can't have a relationship with them, another one calls her beautiful, and she is able to (optionally; the game developers have realized that it ''is'' possible for boys and girls to just be friends) romance Akihiko (himself a Chick Magnet), [[TheCutie Ken]], Ryoji, and Shinjiro [[spoiler:who is implied to have fallen for her whether the player chooses to become lovers with him or not]]. Then there's Theo and [[RobotGirl Aigis]]...
* Asellus of ''VideoGame/SagaFrontier'' is a rare video game example of this (still attracting girls, not guys), and there's a in-story reason for it to boot. She has [[spoiler: the blood of the Charm Lord in her, which makes her half-mystic, but also gives her the Charm Lord's Innate abilities of seduction and attraction to females.]] If you see the EasterEgg, you'll understand more.
* In ''VideoGame/SuperHeroineChronicle'', the ''LightNovel/InfiniteStratos'' girls still have their harem hijinks, but because Ichika isn't present, they have to go for the next best thing. Players would think it would be [[OriginalGeneration Claude]], but a cutscene reveals that the girls would swoon over [[Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear Hibiki Tachibana]]. This makes [[LightNovel/AriaTheScarletAmmo Aria H. Kanzaki]] warn them not to kiss her, or else [[ArtMajorBiology they might]] [[HilarityEnsues get pregnant]].
* Princess Peach from ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' is also a major Dude Magnet. EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses, indeed. TEC, Francis, Bowser, Wario, numerous Toads, Booster, Lock, Mario, and to an extent, Luigi are all crushing on her. [[SingleTargetSexuality But there's only one suitor this princess has got her eyes on,]] [[RescueRomance and that's her hero, Mario.]]
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' has [[HelloNurse Sheena]] [[HighlyVisibleNinja Fujibayashi]], who has a number of NPCS hitting on her and some heavy ShipTease with both Lloyd and Zelos. [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan She seems to have a thing for Lloyd]], but he's oblivious and she's too {{Tsundere}} to come out and say it.
** To a lesser extent than Sheena, there's also [[SexyMentor Raine]] [[HalfHumanHybrid Sage]], who is implied to have been in a relationship prior to the game's events, gets her own ''fanclub'' in Asgard and usually gets a positive reaction from men, even if some find her a [[SternTeacher little scary.]]
