Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/FateHaremAntics'': Assassin is a PoisonousPerson who can't turn this ability off. She is therefore ''very'' touch-starved, and the second she discovers that Shielder can touch her without being hurt, she hugs her and doesn't let go. She's next seen sitting in Shielder's lap, with Shielder looking rather uncomfortable but not having the heart to say anything.


* Medli in "[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13105443/1/The-Legend-of-Zelda-The-Wind-Waker The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker]]" is very affectionate. Much more than the game this story is based on. She first hugs Link in her excitement when he agrees to help her into Dragon Roost Cavern and then once more when Link blames himself for the wind injuring her. She hugs both Link and Komali after they save her from her captors and again when Link vows to come back to Dragon Roost Island. She fills the hugging hole when Link comes to awaken her as a sage and, in two rather sad moments, she hugs Link to comfort him after he is traumatised by a pack of Redeads and she gives him one more after he begins crying at having to leave her for what he thinks is forever.

Added DiffLines:

* Mooncake from ''WesternAnimation/FinalSpace'' gives new meaning to the term "face-hugger".

Added DiffLines:

* Scorpia in ''WesternAnimation/SheRaAndThePrincessesOfPower'' is an almost literal cuddle bug, given that [[ScorpionPeople she has the claws and tail of a giant scorpion]], yet is so keen on giving out hugs that Catra eventually has to mandate a ten-foot distance between them at all times. She even lists her four main virtues as being loyal, brave, strong, and giving great hugs.


* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', there are two cuddle lovers: [[AllLovingHero Mabel]] and [[GentleGiant Soos]]. Mabel's shown giving bear hugs and tackle hugs, especially to Dipper and Stan, quite often. In "Society of the Blind Eye", when she is listing cool things about herself, she mentions that she hugs a lot. She also loves cuddling with her pet pig, Waddles. Soos hugs the twins often, and attempts to initiate an unwanted group hug in "Dreamscaperers", admitting that he never knows when the time is right. Another time, [[spoiler: when the world looked like it was ending]], he says this:

-->'''Soos''': Guys, if I die, I wanna die hugging.


* In ''Manga/CellsAtWorkBlack,'' immunosupressant medicine takes the form of [[CuteMachines a big, cuddly robot]] who hugs neutrophils into submission after they've been driven into a frenzy by trying to break down a purine crystal.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/LoveLiveSunshine'' introduces [[OutdoorsyGal Kanan Matsuura]] and [[TheGadfly Mari Ohara]]. Kanan has been one since she was a child, such as by hugging people she just met, or hugging someone close (or a pillar) when he's afraid, [[spoiler:as well as hugging Mari when they reconcile on episode 9 of the anime]]. Whereas Mari rubbed off of Kanan, and usually likes to hug her and/or her other friend [[{{Tsundere}} Dia]].


* [[IdiotHero Luffy]] of ''Anime/OnePiece'' has a habit of glomping everyone he's fond of, regardless of gender. This could be deemed problematic if the person in question has feelings for him ([[ShrinkingViolet Hancock]], we're looking at you) and could interpret it the wrong way, as he's very [[AllLovingHero compassionate to most people he's allianced with and is not treating anyone differently.]] The fact that he's a RubberMan capable of stretching out his arms, this trope is extra bold.

* All of Team 7 in ''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/16267331/chapters/42084791#workskin Black Hole Heart]]'' is very cuddly with each other and those they care about with Sakura being the biggest cuddler of them all. After they [[ItMakesSenseInContext take over Root]], Sai quickly gets used to Sakura draping herself over him regularly.

* After [=LuFisto=] [[HeelFaceTurn turned face]] and abandoned the LouisCypher element of her gimmick, she picked up this instead, to the chagrin of Wrestling/DaffneyUnger and Wrestling/MsChif(herself usually known for [[NoPersonalSpace violating personal space]]) in Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}}. When Daffney met Wrestling/SoloDarling in SHIMMER offshoot SHINE, she quickly likened Solo to a younger version of [=LuFisto=], but by then was used to it and in fact encouraged Solo to weaponize it.
