Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/BelowHerMouth'': It's left unclear if Jasmine is a very closeted lesbian, or simply bisexual. Her fiance thinks the former, but Jasmine doesn't seem to know herself.


** ''Literature/ParaisoStreet'': Isis appears to appreciate Henshaw’s nervous interest in her, but this might also be because [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer she’s used to it]]. MadScientist Cali also offhandedly mentions previous flings, but feels her first true romantic connection with a woman.

** Downplayed with Henshaw, who clearly prefers women but is also not human.

Added DiffLines:

*''[[Literature/AmaranthineSaga Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox]]'':Perhaps it's just his [[TheTrickster mischievous]] nature, but Argent enjoys teasing (and feeding) Jaques' hopeless infatuation with him a little too much, including, it's implied, distracting him with dirty dreams at one point. Otherwise, the [[SingleTargetSexuality only person]] Argent ever shows any romantic interest in is Tsumiko
** Jaques himself counts, as his attraction to Argent is obvious (and the on-going serial "Lord Mettlebright's Man" makes it clear he [[EatingTheEyeCandy appreciates]] male beauty in many different persons, but it's less clear whether his pursuit of Tsumiko (and the flirtation he employs towards it) is solely materially based in an effort to get his hands on her fortune--and Argent--or whether he is also attracted in any way to women.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/XavierRiddleAndTheSecretMuseum'': Yadina has a huge crush on Kid!George Washington, yet blushes at Kid!Sally Ride in "I Am Madam President."

Added DiffLines:

* Elaine in the fourth ''Film/LakePlacid'' movie shows a lot of LipstickLesbian signs, particularly towards Brittany (such as telling a friend that Brittany is a skank, then adding "She does have a great ass though", holding Brittany's hand at one point as they're running together and giving her a shoulder massage) but also takes part in a couple conversations about cute boys.


* Graham Spectre from ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' tends to come off like this. His utterly massive man-crush on Ladd Russo, his [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace complete disregard for the personal space]] for pretty much every male he comes in contact with, offhand comments about other men's attractiveness ("Firo, or whatever his name was... Who could have expected such a cute face to ever be capable of such [[{{Fingore}} horrifying cruelty?]]"), and ''then'' there's that thing he seems to have for Jacuzzi ("Should I let this woman go in deference to you locking up my heart?"), which peaks when he waltzes up to Jacuzzi entirely unprovoked and declares "I like you", [[https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/justmakeoutalready.jpg while cocking his head as if he were about to kiss him]] before telling him he has free access to his warehouse and wandering off. But he also expresses some interest in Chane, claims that he [[LikesOlderWomen likes older women]], and he [[AllThereInTheManual supposedly]] has a thing for [[BrotherSisterIncest his own sister]]. He's [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} a total nut, so who knows.

** Meg likes boys, but has also hinted being attracted to Connie. There was also the episode where she pretended to be a lesbian to join her school's Lesbian Alliance club and [[IJustWantToHaveFriends actually have friends for once]], but confessed she was straight once she couldn't go through with actually having sex with a girl. However, said girl proceeded to berate Meg for "choosing" to be straight. When Meg replied that sexual orientation was not a choice, the girl said that only applies to guys, while girls ''do'' get to choose. So it would seem that all girls and women in the ''Family Guy'' universe are technically bisexual no matter what they identify as... [[NegativeContinuity at least until the next episode when that joke has been forgotten about]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ADiplomaticVisit'': [[spoiler:Ambassador Swift-Pad was in a romantic relationship with a female wolf for some time. Part of what makes him uncertain about his feelings is that he ''still'' felt attracted to them after they turned out to be Maxilla, a biologically male (but mentally genderfluid) changeling.]]


** WordOfGod said that Rhombulus was in a gay relationship with Lekmet, but in one episode he confesses to having a crush on Queen Moon.

** Max Galactica, who is mostly a CampStraight circus performer has his heart set on marrying Regina, the daughter of his boss at the circus but he flirts around with both Phoenix and Maya. He might have been joking when he did that but he does qualify since this is called "Ambiguously" bi.
** Klavier Gavin, from ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', flirts with just about every girl he comes across but also acts ''very'' flirty towards Apollo.

bi. Of course "Max Galactica" is a stage persona and he's actually GoodOlBoy [[HayseedName Billy Bob Johns]] underneath all that fabulousness, but he definitely seems to ''prefer'' being Max whenever possible.
** Klavier Gavin, from ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', flirts with just about every girl he comes across but also acts ''very'' flirty towards Apollo. It's also mentioned that he personally writes all of the Gavinners' songs, one of which is called "My Boyfriend Is the Prosecution's Witness", though we never hear it so we don't know if it's written from his perspective or not.



** Ki-bo wanted to hold hands with Shuichi in his Love Hotel event and he has some quite strong chemistry with [[{{Robosexual}} Miu]]. Which make sense with him having a NoBiologicalSex.
** Tenko is a rare case of the ambiguity being on the heterosexual side. Tenko gets flustered when complimented by Kaede and is clearly infatuated with Himiko, which Tenko herself outright confirms. Additionally, despite the fact that she DoesNotLikeMen, it does not necessarily mean she is incapable of being attracted to them: in her Love Hotel event, it shows she is not above allowing Shuichi to do what he wants with her, so she can develop feelings for a man that has gained her trust.

Also of note, her hatred of men apparently comes from her being [[SuperGullible gullible enough]] to take something her marital arts teacher said as an obvious joke at face value (that being that coming into contact with men will weaken her strength). Obvious because said teacher ''is a man'', which Tenko apparently [[FailedASpotCheck did not realize]] until Shuichi points it out, causing her to GoMadFromTheRevelation.


* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' does this a lot, although over time it tends to settle down to making most (though not all) of its characters definitely bi.

** After it seemed that Sandra's heterosexuality had been confirmed by her attempt with [=DiDi,=] spinoff comic ''Webcomic/SandraOnTheRocks'' had Cammi bring the trope racing back to the surface for her. Also in that comic, teenage geek Alex seems increasingly ambiguous about his complete commitment to heterosexuality.

** After it seemed that Sandra's heterosexuality had been confirmed by her attempt with [=DiDi,=] spinoff comic ''Webcomic/SandraOnTheRocks'' had Cammi bring the trope racing back to the surface for her. And then there's [[InVinoVeritas her tendency to grope other women when drunk]]. [[spoiler:Becoming a successful model does wonders for her confidence, and by the end she can comfortably flirt with women while sober. She officially ends the comic as ButNotTooBi due to not wanting to put a label on her sexuality, and in the final strip, she confesses her love to Cammi and the two get together for real]]. Also in that comic, teenage geek Alex seems increasingly ambiguous about his complete commitment to heterosexuality.heterosexuality, especially after Sandra vomiting on him made him start to associate attractive women with vomit. However, the only "boy" he shows attraction to [[SweetOnPollyOliver is actually a girl in disguise]], and this subplot resolves itself off-camera during a TimeSkip with him [[spoiler:scoring a threesome with said girl and her girlfriend]].


** Tom may also count, especially when it comes to Marco. In one episode he's shown eating ice cream with the Pan flag colors, and that same episode has him bonding with Marco. In Season 4, there's an episode where Marco misplaces his swim trunks and wears Glossaryck's, and he mentions that Tom likes them, and another episode where he brings up [[spoiler: Star and Marco's kiss from the previous season, and asks how Star would feel if he kissed Marco and didn't tell her, suggesting that he has thought about doing that]].

** [=Starfan13=] also said in one of the Marco chats that Marco looked very handsome dressed as a prince, even though she confessed to having a crush on Star earlier. Possibly Marco is simply ''that much'' of a ChickMagnet.
** The creators joked that EveryoneIsBi, but it looks like they were serious. Jackie also dated Marco for awhile, [[spoiler: but in the last season, she's with a girl named Chloe and WordOfGod says they are in a relationship.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Summer is this as of Season 4, if not BiTheWay. In "The Old Man and the Seat," when she was a part of the Lovefinderzz app craze, one of the "soulmates" the app paired her up with was a woman; at the end of "Rattlestar Ricklactica," when Rick asked her if she wanted to go to "Boob-World," she replied "not today," implying that she wouldn't be completely against going, and an alternate universe Summer in one of the comics is in a relationship with another teenage girl.


* Ryan from ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' was originally intended to be CampGay but Disney wouldn't allow it. He was paired off with a female character (and his relationship with his twin sister Sharpay is a tiny bit [[IncestSubtext unusual]]), yet at the same time he has a lot of HomoeroticSubtext with Chad in the sequel.
