** For a specific, if somewhat subtle example, there are Maiev and Naisha. Naisha is one of the few people Maiev was really close to, and Naisha's death caused by Illidan, immensely intensified Maiev's hatred towards him. Also, after Illidan also rendered her brother comatose, was ultimately the reason why most of her Watchers were killed, left Maiev to die, trapped in the Tomb of Sargeras, and had her imprisoned and tortured, Maiev shouts "This is for Naisha!" during the fight against Illidan in ''The Burning Crusade''.
** Another implied example happens where Sentinel Sweetspring, a female Night Elf in Star's Rest, will occasionally grin and "waggle her eyebrows suggestively" at the also female Sentinel Amberline (Amberline does not return the interest).

* There's an epic quest chain in the Badlands were you are told three hilarious stories by three different people. The third guy will tell you that the first two stories weren't that great because, among other flaws, they had no hot babes in them. When you're phased to his version of the story, you are surrounded by hot babes... one of whom is a male blood elf. Should you choose to take the male Blood Elf with you during the quest, he even refers to him as a "strapping Blood Elf", so it's not another "no one can tell the Blood Elf sexes apart" joke.

** Most pairs of male characters have to ''work'' to get to ThoseTwoGuys status. Anren and Tholo use it as ''starting blocks'' in a 100 meter dash to the ho yay finish line.

** There's also the fact that, in the Death Knight starting zone, Thassarian ask you to go deliver Koltira who was made prisoner by the Scarlet Crusade. While saying that, normally, Lich King's servants who failed in battle are left to die. He also refer to Koltira as a sort-of brother for him. Koltira isn't surprised at all by this when you find him.
** In ''Legion'', Thassarian shyly asks the player-his new boss-to help him rescue Koltira from Sylvanas. This is five years after she dragged Koltira off for reeducation. You pass various horrific-looking torture devices as you go through the dungeons, fully expecting to find Koltira in pieces or else insane. Instead, he's perfectly fine if a bit tired and still very loyal to Thassarian. [[TooKinkyToTorture It kind of seems like Sylvanas gave up torturing him in frustration.]] You exit the dungeons with Thassarian carrying Koltira in front of him: you know, like every romance movie ever.

** In ''Battle For Azeroth'' Wrathion arrives in Stormwind along with Magni Bronzebeard to warn Anduin about N'Zoth. Although they presumably warn the Horde as well, Wrathion doesn't go personally. As soon as Wrathion arrives, Anduin punches him. This is because Anduin blames Wrathion for his father's death (which is not totally wrong, if not completely correct either). Wrathion's reaction is "I suppose I deserved that". It's very clear that Wrathion is genuinely worried about Anduin during the rest of the cinematic. For context: Wrathion once ordered an incompetent underling dumped outside with broken legs. He's generally a bit of a {{Jerkass Hero}}...to everyone except Anduin that is.
* [[KnightInShiningArmor Tirion Fordring]] and [[NobleDemon Darion Mograine]]. Tirion saves Darion's life after Arthas steals his father's soul, and instantly partners up with him, trusting him implicitly. In the Ashbringer comic, Darion seeks out Tirion to find out how to free his father's soul from the Corrupted Ashbringer. Tirion's obligatory answer? [[ThePowerOfLove Love.]] He doesn't even bother hiding his horror when Darion is turned into the NobleDemon that he ends up as. In fact, his reaction to seeing Darion again is to plead with/berate him for falling to the Scourge. Darion's initial death could even be interpreted as a [[ActofTrueLove proving his love for Tirion, since it's kinda the only reason Tirion or anyone else survived the original battle of Light's Hope Chapel]]. That incident is also the reason that the Lich King regards Mograine so highly, as he managed to foil the Archlich Kel'thuzad: [[TheDragon the Lich King's right hand man]] and most powerful member of the Scourge by far.
** Eventually, Darion returns the favor and saves Tirion's life, yelling at him, berating him, kicking stuff around, basically raging that Tirion did not come to him immediately after discovering the heart of the [[EvilOverlord Lich King]]. Those guys are really invested in the other one living because of pure trust, or...something else. They always talk to each other while ignoring other people. Stand by each other when watching inappropriately timed challenges, etc.
** In Legion, when the Knights of the Ebon Blade are recruiting their new horsemen, Tirion's name is thrown in the ring as the Fourth Horsemen candidate. Darion is absolutely ''livid'' and disgusted at the prospect, going on a long rant (which you have to scroll down twice to read) during which he states rather vehemently that Tirion is one of the world's greatest heroes and deserves the peace of death. Doesn't stop him from going through with the assault, but still... (For Comparison, when weighing up the other candidates, Darion considered the pros and cons of the choices politically before deciding the Ebon Blade would be honoured to have the new horsemen in their ranks.) To be fair though, this reaction is partially because he knows the Lich King is playing a sick joke on him. It is also worth noting that Tirion is old enough to be Darion's father, although younger than his actual father, and Darion is young enough to be Tirion's son (although older than his actual son). Their extremely close relationship could therefore be more of a father-son thing than a romantic thing.

** In Legion, when the Knights of the Ebon Blade are recruiting their new horsemen, Tirion's name is thrown in the ring as the prime candidate for Fourth Horsemen candidate. Horseman.

* More on the FoeYay side, but Kil'jaeden and Velen were very close. In the World of Warcraft novel Rise of the Horde, Kil'jaeden's reaction to Velen fleeing Argus to avoid corruption smacks of jilted lover, and in ''Warlords of Draenor'', Archimonde even calls out Kil'jaeden on his obsession about about getting revenge on Velen (and the draenei), and how it is distracting him from conquering Draenor. In ''Legion'' in the opening cinematic for the Legionfall campaign, Kil'jaeden is shown using magical scrying to watch the council on Dalaran, his expression turning pensive, even briefly forlorn, as he focuses on Velen. Then when Velen calls Kil'jaeden a monster (even though it's true in every sense of the word) [[MoralMyopia Kil'jaeden is hurt and distraught by this]], [[ShootTheTelevision angrily ending the scrying with a swipe of one hand]].
** Expanded upon later on Argus. When encountering Talgath, Talgath outright states Velen leaving (which Talgath called a betrayal) broke Kil'jaeden's heart. Velen's response "I lost a brother that day too." However, although they call each other "brother" they were literally inside each other's heads. Velen uses terms normally reserved for romantic relationships to describe their connection. However, it is made explicitly clear that the relationship was not sexual in any sense.

* Wrathion and Anduin in ''Mists of Pandaria'' due to how they were frequently seen playing board game with each other in the Tavern while Anduin teased Wrathion about his age and size, as well as the fact that Anduin seems to be the only person that genuinely likes Wrathion.

** To elaborate, Thassarian was killed by Arthas and raised as a Death Knight, then later fought with Koltira's brother, but spared his life. Koltira then fought Thassarian and tried to convince him to rejoin the side of good via IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight but Thassarian struck down Koltira, who was raised as a Death Knight, yet they found comradeship in undeath. Later, Thassarian joins the Alliance and Koltira joins the Horde, but they maintain their friendship despite their factions. Instead of fighting over a location, they call a temporary truce between the Alliance and Horde. At the end of the quest line, Koltira is dragged off by Sylvanas in order to remove the other loyalties he holds, and Thassarian states his intention to go after ''the Banshee Queen herself'' to find out what happened to his friend. Super-Homoerotic or worlds most epic bromance? You decide!

* In Battle for Azeroth, much of the Horde questing zone of Vol'dun revolves around two female Zandalari trolls, Kaja and Rakera. The zone's story begins with Kaja enlisting the player's help to find her commander, Rakera, who has been exiled to Vol'dun for having dirt on the general of the Zandalari army. As the quests progress, it becomes increasingly obvious that Kaja has a personal attachment, and once Rakera is found, she refuses to leave her side. A later quest has the player collect other people's memories, and among them is a flashback from just before Rakera was exiled. In it, Kaja begs Rakera not to confront the general, and is left crying when Rakera states that duty comes first.
** In a later patch, Rakera is promoted to general. Kaja receives no promotion herself, but is always present wherever General Rakera goes, as if she's worried about losing her again.

While you're wearing the glasses, various NPCs will comment on them, sometimes to the point of hitting on you. This can include the innkeeper at the Legerdemain Lounge, regardless of your gender and the fact that her husband is in the room.

Added DiffLines:

** Expanded upon and sunk later on Argus. When encountering Talgath, Talgath outright states Velen leaving (which Talgath called a betrayal) broke Kil'jaeden's heart. Velen's response "I lost a brother that day too." states it was brotherly love, not romantic.
