* Haruhi from ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' makes it very clear right from the start that she doesn't care about the gender of the one she is with, as long as they're not an ordinary human being. However, aside from her fixation on [[ReluctantFanserviceGirl Mikuru]] (which is largely PlayedForLaughs and {{Fanservice}}), she doesn't really show any romantic interest in other girls, and it seems as though only boys have confessed to her.

* Nene from ''Manga/{{Hyakko}}'' says she's bi, but she only shows interest in girls. Since it's a comedy SliceOfLife aimed at men, this is probably [[ImprobablyFemaleCast intentional]]. In later chapters she finally hits on a guy, Torako's looks-like-a-[[JapaneseDelinquents Japanese-Delinquent]] friend - or is just being her normal LovableSexManiac self, as her idea of hitting on him is to ask how big his penis is since he's really tall.

* ComicBook/{{Deadpool}} is pansexual by WordOfGay (and in more recent years, actually seen flirting with men in the comics) but has only been seen actually sleeping with women. In addition, his relationships with women are treated as "real" while any interest in men is only ever PlayedForLaughs.

Ryan Reynolds mentioned the possibility of giving Deadpool a boyfriend in the second film, but ultimately this didn't happen.

* In as much as [[Literature/ThePictureOfDorianGray Dorian Gray's]] sexuality can be established, it falls under this, with his relationships with men being largely ambiguous or sexual while his relationship with Sybil is of a more traditional romantic sort. {{Enforced|Trope}} in that [[FairForItsDay there wasn't much room for any other depiction at the time.]]
* Rolas for about ten years prior to the start of the ''Literature/TheRedVixenAdventures'', due to his m/m relationship going down in the flames over an AnguishedDeclarationOfLove.
* Oberyn Martell of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire,'' to some extent; he only has one lover throughout the course of the series, and it's entirely possible that it would be unsafe for him to bring a male lover to court. The only evidence we have of his other relationships is [[AnythingThatMoves rumors]] and his bastard children, the latter of which couldn't come from his relationships with men. [[Series/GameOfThrones The TV show]] averts this, however, as Oberyn is shown getting it on with male prostitute Olyvar. Plus, he and his paramour Ellaria Sand specifically prefer sex workers that go both ways.
* The author of ''Literature/TheVampireChronicles'' had established that all of her vampires are bisexual, but none of the female vampires seems to have any interest in other women.

* ''Series/{{Constantine}}'': John Constantine. Despite being bi by WordOfGod, he's just seen vaguely flirting with Papa Midnite and is only ever shown hooking up with women. Averted once [[{{Transplant}} transplanted]] in ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' where he kisses male agent Gary and a tragic relationship with a man is a critical plot point.
* Jane from ''Series/{{Coupling}}'' claims to be bisexual, though some claim it's just a bid for attention. Oliver calls her out on it in Season 4, showing her pictures from one of his magazines, which she immediately cringes away from.
* In ''Series/DaVincisDemons'', the creators have stated that their Leonardo is bisexual. Unfortunately, this doesn't come across well on the show. He has a relationship with Lucretia that is a large part of the plot, has multiple graphic sex scenes, and it is suggested several times that he is in love with her despite her being an enemy spy, while his attraction to men is shown only by a couple of verbal references and one kiss with a man he only slept with once because he was "curious".



** Clara Oswald has also been confirmed as bisexual but, again, her bisexuality is only implied with throwaway lines, though more than the Doctor and River, while the show spent much time with her UST with the Doctor in series 7 and her relationship with Danny in series 8.
* In ''Series/{{Skins}}'', Franky Fitzgerald says she's "into people" when asked which gender she prefers, but only shows ''any'' kind of interest in guys on the show (Mini's one-sided crush on her in S5 notwithstanding).
* Donna Freedman from ''Series/{{Neighbours}}'' unfortunately turned out like this. Having taken the brave step of having a bisexual character and acknowledging this in a subtle coming-out scene, the producers never explored her sexuality apart from a token peck on the lips with a female character

* ''Series/Lucifer2016'' has the title character as being bisexual, with a preference for women. However, his attraction to men never gets more than an occasional nod, with Lucifer's attraction to men rarely, if ever, being shown as anything other than lip service.
* Sarah Manning from ''Series/OrphanBlack'' has been confirmed to be bisexual via WordOfGod, but aside from having a drunken [[ThreeWaySex threesome]] with a woman and her boyfriend, she's only shown interest in men.
* In ''Series/HaltAndCatchFire'', Joe [=MacMillan=] is bisexual, but the only two serious relationships we see him in are with women, his relationships with men happening in his backstory, or during {{Time Skip}}s.

* ''Series/TrueBlood'': When Talbot comes onto Eric, Eric says this is new. Talbot naturally assumes he's talking about being with another man, but Eric clarifies that he meant being with another vampire. But later seasons contradict this claim by revealing that Eric had been FriendsWithBenefits with his progeny Pam and his "sister" Nora for over a century, while it has never been revealed or even suggested that he has ever been with another man. But then again, Eric was seducing Talbot to kill him, meaning he was possibly just telling him what he wanted to hear and might have never been attracted to men in the first place. This would not be out of character for him.

* ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'': Creator/LinManuelMiranda has said via WordOfGod on twitter that he believes there probably was something romantic between Alexander Hamilton and John Laurens (as has been speculated by many historians) and deliberately inserted some lines into the musical to reference that, but they're so subtle you wouldn't realise it unless you were already familiar with the theory; by contrast, the equally ambiguous relationship between Hamilton and his wife's sister Angelica Schuyler is centered so much she gets an entire song dedicated to their UnresolvedSexualTension, and it's mentioned in several others. In addition, Miranda bolstered the interpretation with his acting in the original cast, being far more touchy with Anthony Ramos and looking into his eyes soulfully, but later actors have not followed his lead, sticking more to the script and treating Laurens more like just a close friend.

* Some of the HomoeroticSubtext regarding Cloud's feelings towards Sephiroth in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' was cut to tone it down (like a line where he ruminates on how, as a teenager, he thought about Sephiroth so much that his mother 'gave up on him' - putting a later flashback where his mother pleads with him to get a 'nice girlfriend' in a different light entirely). He does get a gay DidTheyOrDidntThey with a male prostitute, but it's played completely for laughs and he doesn't seem particularly into it (compare to the romantic and sincere DidTheyOrDidntThey scene he gets with Tifa). He flirts with Barret and can even go on a date with him if the player has him do it enough while offending the girls, but it's usually GayBravado and, on the date, Barret mostly acts confused that Cloud isn't more interested in the girls than in him.



* Kanji from ''VideoGame/Persona4'' is a very confusing and hotly-debated case, in that he technically displays attraction to both men and women, but every possible example is rendered ambiguous by the story. Firstly, his main love interest is a SweetPollyOliver with an AmbiguousGenderIdentity. Then there's the fact that his shadow - meant to represent repressed, socially-inappropriate desires - is a CampGay DepravedHomosexual who repeatedly hits on the men of the party. But unlike other characters who actually admitted their shadows did reflect them, Kanji ends up saying that he was just worried that he wouldn't be accepted for his more feminine hobbies, suggesting that his shadow hit on guys because women were more judgmental of him, which apart from being unlikely also straight-up contradicts the rest of the game where Yukiko is by far the most accepting and Yosuke by far the ''least''. After his shadow, his social link totally side-steps the sexuality issue altogether, and even his interest in Naoto after the gender reveal is explicitly stated to be at least in part [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday an attempt to assert his heterosexuality]] (he insists on her presenting as female at one point while yelling "make me a man!" so it's not exactly subtle). And of course, [[NoBisexuals nobody in the game ever suggests he could actually be bi.]] In all, this is a weird case where ''either'' his attraction to men ''or'' women could be discounted as fake or purely comedic -- and rest assured that for every single possible interpretation of his sexuality, someone, somewhere, believes it passionately.

* Zoe, protagonist of ''Webcomic/HeroineChic'', mentions that she dated girls in college, and there is an offhand reference to a female ex of hers at one point. But she never shows attraction to women in the comic, and all her relationship drama happens with male characters (including her flirting with/ dating/ breaking up with Daniel, booty-calling the superhero Valiant, and her crush on her roommate Laren's boyfriend Tom).

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'': Jet is never stated to be bi on the show, despite it being indirectly confirmed via WordOfGay. Justified, as this is a PBS show. Due to not being a human, however, it can be hard to say if his sexuality can be categorized at all, although he's definitely shown attraction to multiple genders.

[[spoiler:During Act 3, she states that while she doesn't know the player character's gender, [[SingleTargetSexuality she doesn't really mind it at all.]] However, she refers to the player with the name that they chose at the beginning of the game, implying she is still projecting her affections onto the male avatar. She also refers to the player as her boyfriend in some lines of dialogue during Act 3 as well as singing "write the way into ''his'' heart" during the credits.]]

* In the ''WesternAnimation/DCAnimatedMovieUniverse,'' the only time Constantine hints at being bi is a single line in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueDarkApokolipsWar'' about King Shark being his ex. They never discuss their relationship during the movie, and the details are never expanded upon (though fans on social media had no problem [[RuleThirtyFour filling in the gaps themselves]]), and it's treated as a joke whereas his romance with Zatanna is taken much more seriously.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', [[OurTrollsAreDifferent trolls]] as a species are [[EveryoneIsBi bisexual by nature]], especially since [[BizarreAlienReproduction gender plays no role in troll reproduction]]. They also have four different types of romance--two of which are physical/sexual, while the other two are non-physical and more like deep friendships or mediating--allowing for more pairings for each troll. Despite this, over half of the trolls only have genuine romantic feelings for characters of the opposite gender; namely, Aradia, Tavros, Sollux, Nepeta, Equius, Feferi, and Terezi[[note]]She does have a female partner in one of the non-sexual quadrants at one point, but all of her love interests for the two types of physical relationships are boys[[/note]]. Kanaya actually inverts it, as she's only shown having feelings for other girls.

* ''ComicBook/WonderWoman'': Despite confirmed/assumed by several writers to be bisexual, her supposed queerness is never explicitly shown or elaborated upon besides some (implied) dialogue and all of her onscreen romantic relationships are with men (like Steve Trevor, Batman, and Superman). [[Creator/DCComics DC Comics]] themself have been largely silent on the subject and if it questioned about it is all talk and no action; it's primarily used as positive PR.

* Jon Whitewolf from ''Fanfic/ADovahkiinSpreadsHisWings'' mentions he made ''friends'' from both genders.
