* [[ThePigPen Fujou]] from ''Oddman 11'' explicitly says that she's not a lesbian and that her relationship with Setsu, as one-sided as it is, is a special case. While we never see her interacting with men, she must consider herself heterosexual, since it's been stated that every female oddman has dated (or is dating) TheOneGuy, and doesn't relate to Kirara when she says she's bi.

** PlayedForLaughs in the episode "Him." A guy named R.J. has a magic jacket that makes any woman who sees him wearing it fall in love with him. This includes Willow.

* In ''Series/TheFirstShopOfCoffeePrince'', Han Kyul tells Eun Chan, "I like you. Whether you're a man or an alien… I don't care anymore."

to:

* In ''Series/TheFirstShopOfCoffeePrince'', Han Kyul initially believes that Eun Chan is a guy and angsts over having fallen in love with ([[SweetOnPollyOliver who he thinks is]]) another man but decides that Eun Chan's gender doesn't matter to him. As he tells Eun Chan, "I like you. Whether you're a man or an alien… alien... I don't care anymore."



* ''Series/TheMagicians''
** Eliot is mostly gay, but he is very close with Margo and even had a threesome with her and Quentin. Eliot is also affectionate with his Fillorian wife Fen and conceived a child with her.
*** Well... What happened is that, under the influence of "emotional magic", a ''very'' drunk Eliot and Quentin started making out on a bed, and then Margo (who was much more sober than the guys and had had a crush on Eliot for some time - which was ''not'' reciprocated if his reaction to her doppelganger kissing him is any indication) decided to butt in, possibly just taking advantage of Eliot's drunken and aroused state that was really just directed at Quentin. This [[UnfortunateImplications possible]] college DateRape scenario [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale was never really discussed afterwards]], but Eliot didn't seem exactly pleased the next day.


* In ''WebComic/KillSixBillionDemons'', Allison's first appearance is her trying to get rid of her virginity with a man, and when the devil girl Cio kisses her later, she tells her she's not into women. The fact that Cio isn't a human also gives her pause. Flash forward one year, and Allison and Cio are in a relationship, or at least sleeping together.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/OneOverZero'', the author made Terra, the sole female character of the cast, a lesbian to prevent any romantic relationships from forming between characters. This didn't stop Terra from falling in love with Zadok and agonizing over whether she's 'allowed' to love him without breaking her established identity.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''[[UpdatedRerelease Full Body]]'' version of ''{{VideoGame/Catherine}}'' has an option for Vincent to ditch the love triangle he's stuck in and [[ThirdOptionLoveInterest romance newcomer Rin instead.]] However, he makes that decision only after [[spoiler: he [[UnsettlingGenderReveal accidentally finds out Rin actually male.]]]] After some introspection, Vincent realizes that being with Rin makes him happy, [[spoiler: because he feels he can be himself around him. He also realizes that gender doesn't matter to him, and even outs himself as [[BiTheWay bisexual]] to his friends.]] While this isn't too unusual, Rin's True Ending certainly is. [[spoiler: Rin is actually a member of a race of shapeshifting AngelicAliens, and merely his human form is an androgynous male. His ''real'' form is a cute little pink blob with a glowing antennae, so there might not even ''be'' a word that accurately describes what gender Rin truly is.]] By that point, however, Vincent is long past caring, and practically says this trope verbatim.


** The example from ''Series/Torchwood'' has to do with a one-off line that the character of Ianto says to a friend: "it's not men, it's just him [Captain Jack Harkness, the star of the series]". But Ianto is a workaholic nerd, so this line should be taken with a grain of salt (and indeed, Ianto's friend doesn't really buy it). It's just as likely he was bi all along, and simply hadn't thought that carefully about his sexuality. If this trope actually is in effect, then it's partially justified because Captain Jack Harkness comes from the future where humans apparently have different pheromones. Essentially everything with a nose wants to boink him and Jack never says no. Jack's love affairs tend to be horrendously shallow almost to the point of being creepy, but that is decidedly not the case with Ianto. They have a deep platonic and emotional connection, which Jack explicitly says he's never had with anyone else: he suspects that Ianto is his [[OneTrueLove true love]]. The rest of the team pretty much concurs and makes a point not to interfere in the relationship (to Ianto's relief and Jack's consternation).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Buttsmithy'' (formerly called ''Alfie''), two of the caravan guards are a duo named Lydia and Marco. Both are attractive, both are competent, both are long term best buds, and both just love the ladies. At one point during a threesome with another female, Lydia decides to see what's so great about Marco's male parts. After an extremely and mutually satisfying experience, Lydia gazes into his eyes, and... slaps him upside the head and laughs, just to diffuse the tension. Lydia is not very good at dealing with emotions; it takes her the rest of the chapter (and watching Marco risk his life and realizing how much he means to her) for her to accept that she's in love with her best friend.


** Tsubaki flirts with Yuki and fawns over him saying she DoesNotLikeMen and considers girls to be cuter. However, she says Yuki is the exception.

Added DiffLines:

** Sairi claims that he's not into boys. However, he does admit that he has always loved Yuki when he was a female, and still does now that he is a male.


* Discussed in the ''Anime/{{Pokémon}}'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9650001/1/Northern-Lights-and-Ocean-Dreams Northern Lights and Ocean Dreams]]''; Dawn spends some time during her first night in a triad with Ash and Misty trying to figure out which way this applies to her- does she like men with Misty the exception or like women with Ash the exception?- but despite remembering a brief kiss with Zoey, she soon concludes that it isn't important so long as she's with the people she loves.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/FireEmblemThreeHouses'' has a handful of characters who are mostly straight with a single gay option.
** Shamir and Catharine, for instance, are both women who won't fall for a female main character, but they WILL fall for each other if their supports were high enough.
** Likewise, Edelgard, who is straight in all of her potential romantic pairings, but can be romanced by both genders of protagonist.
** Lindhart is the reverse, with only straight romance options, with the exception of a male protagonist.
** While Dorothea seems [[BiTheWay canonically bisexual]], having many female love interests she can pursue (including a female Byleth), she is the only female love interest for Petra and (heavily implied) Manuella.


* ''Fanfic/TheMadScientistWars'' has two somewhat unique examples of this. One is Xerox, who is now married to Jess 'The Chimera' -- a shapeshifter. Regardless of whether she's shifted to a boy or whatever he's cool. The other is CoolOldGuy (s) Dr. Viktor and Dr. Io, who may both be this for each other...



** Shane falls in love with Demon!Asagi, but Shane's a homosexual. Like Xavin, Demon!Asagi bent his/her gender to accommodate for Shane.

* In ''WebComic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'', [[NiceGuy Norway]] seems relatively straight, but it goes out of the way with [[LovableSexManiac Denmark]], where Norway doesn't mind having sex or being groped by him.
** There's also his [[KissingCousins cousin]] [[ILoveTheDead Jan Mayhen.]]

* Originally, Smithers on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. One of the creators referred to him at one point as "[[SingleTargetSexuality Burnsasexual]]."
-->'''Burns:''' Nonsense! Dogs are idiots. Think about it, Smithers: if I came into your house and started sniffing at your crotch and slobbering all over your face, what would you say?
-->'''Smithers:''' [[{{Beat}} [beat]]] If ''you'' did it, Sir?
** Thanks to {{Flanderization}}, newer episodes depict him as all-out gay, [[DependingOnTheWriter sometimes]] with {{camp|Gay}} tendencies.
*** It is implied that he was dating John (from Homer's Phobia) at some point.
* Ray Gilette from ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' is quite CampGay but he's still willing to sleep with Lana since, as he puts it, "no one's ''that'' gay."

* ''Film/PlanB'' tells the story of two straight men slowly falling in love with each other. Pablo does initially claim [[BiTheWay that he was once with a guy]], but admits later on that he was lying and tells Bruno after a failed attempt to have sex with him that he's confused about his feelings for him because he doesn't even like guys -- although it's quite possible that this was mainly due to his heartbreak over learning that Bruno was just pretending to be interested in him to steal his girlfriend back from him, as he's a lot more receptive after Bruno confesses to him that he genuinely fell in love with him for real.
