* An accusation [[Wrestling/HunterJohnston Delirious]] threw at Wrestling/UltimoDragon's [[Wrestling/DragonGate Toryumon]] promotion [[BitingTheHandHumor while he was working for it]], one that many people agree with though most of them [[{{fanservice}} don't find it such a bad thing.]] This is less true of regional variants such as Dragon Gate USA and Toryumon Mexico, but only slightly.
* Most of the {{Wrestling/WWE}} roster, to the point that quite a few wrestlers have even made their pretty looks a part of their gimmick, or given themself a nickname to reflect that [[MrFanservice they're a part of this trope]]. Examples include "Prince Pretty" Tyler Breeze, "The Shaman of Sexy" John Morrison, and of course "Dashing" Cody Rhodes. Scotty 2 Hotty jokes that towards the end of his term in WWE, he asked if he could drop the "2 Hotty" part of his ring name, in contrast to some of the more attractive guys on the roster.
* Wrestling/CelticChampionshipWrestling of Ireland has a startling collection of good looking young guys on their roster. The likes of Ricky Combat, Bingo Ballance, The Wood Brothers, DOC, Jody Fleisch, Xavier Burns and many others all provide their own form of {{Fanservice}}. Though they do have prominent {{Ms Fanservice}}s in the form of Katey Harvey, Kazza, Siren and Marie.

An array of pretty people as eye candy isn't just [[MaleGaze for the guys]]. Girls get their CastFullOfPrettyBoys to ogle too in the name of {{fanservice}}. This tends to be less noticeable than its [[ImprobablyFemaleCast female counterpart]] because exclusively (or [[TheSmurfettePrinciple near-exclusively]]) male casts are already common and expected (thought not always with the intentional appeal to females) and the fanservice tends to be along the lines of "he cooks" or "naked chest" and thus usually objectifies in a different way than in male-oriented shows--unless there are YaoiGuys involved. The writers sometimes leave it to their audience to retrofit the standard [[TrueCompanions group of friends]] into the UnwantedHarem if they wish.

* ''Series/SchittsCreek'': For a small rural town, there sure are a lot of handsome young men in Schitt's Creek. The 30ish crowd includes David, Mutt, Ted, Jake, and Patrick as well as bit players like Dr. Miguel and the "hottie" that hits on Patrick at the store. It's so noticeable, that Buzzfeed journalist joked with Annie Murphy and Creator/NoahReid about it in an [[https://youtu.be/ml6Ga2BUGZY online video]].


* ''Film/TheCovenant'' is also famous for its five attractive leads including Creator/SebastianStan. Then, we have a scene in the locker room.



* ''{{Series/Shadowhunters}}'' may have the prettiest cast of any UrbanFantasy series. Jace, Alec, Simon, Raphael, and Luke are all good-looking young men in good shape. Hodge is given AdaptationalAttractiveness to become a PrettyBoy too. Of course the other side of the spectrum isn't left out either - since Clary and Isabelle are both quite pretty too.
