Chick and dude magnets in fanfiction.


  • Kensuke ends up becoming one in Advice and Trust after Rei invokes Magnetic Girlfriend. Asuka and Shinji have a hard time grasping how this happened.
    Asuka: Kensuke Aida has two girlfriends. And it’s their idea. And he’s cancelling on a bunch more girls for them. I want off this planet, Shinji. It’s clearly gone nuts.
  • In The Apprentice, the Student, and the Charlatan, Nova Shine gets a few admirers, including Twilight Sparkle and the antagonist Envy. Come a trip to the past, he attracts Clover the Clever, Summer Blossom, Shimmer Silvermane, a host of unseen mares who apparently vied for the position of Faithful Student just to be around him, and even Nightmare Moon.

  • Becoming Lífþrasir: Apparently Cattongue is very popular among the Bog Burglars, with one particular Noodle Incident involving a cousin of Camicazi's that won't take no for an answer. Too bad for them he only has eyes for Astrid.
  • In The Boy Behind The Mask, Hiccup ends up becoming this to the Free Folk within his first week among them. Considering he was considered less than average for most of his life, this makes Hiccup rather uncomfortable.
  • Cody Anderson of Total Drama fame might not have luck with human women, but thanks to a certain pheromone he gives off he is extremely attractive to 'monster' girls. So not long after transferring to Monster High in A Canadian at Monster High he finds himself with several ghoulfriends, and is being 'at least' eyed up by every other ghoul in school.
  • Child of the Storm has Tony as his usual reformed playboy self. Most of the other male Avengers also scrub up pretty well.
    • Warren Worthington III a.k.a. Archangel stands out, with even Professor McGonagall commenting that he's hot.

    • Harry hits a growth spurt and, while still growing into his limbs, develops lean muscles from martial arts training, and gets steadily more and more female (and occasionally male) attention. Since he's thirteen turning fourteen when this starts happening, he mostly finds it somewhat disturbing and horrendously embarrassing. This only increases in the sequel, leading to the somewhat horrifying interest of Yelena Belova a.k.a. Black Widow II - though her interest is mostly designed to try and press Natasha's Berserk Button (it doesn't work).
    • Remy LeBeau a.k.a. Gambit a.k.a. Remy Summers is this trope, with a lot of straight women being Distracted by the Sexy when he's around.
  • Children of an Elder God: Shinji is meek, quiet, self-effacing... and girls are obsessed with him. And he has no idea why. Mere minutes after meeting him Asuka was already clinging to him, and Touji commented that Shinji had all girls behind him despite being a dweeb.

  • In Collapse of Eastern Fantasy, Touma Kamijou manages to inadvertently attract nearly the entire population of Gensokyo. It is explained that they sense his Imagine Breaker and are filled with fear and bloodlust because it can destroy any of them with a single touch, but this feeling also arouses them.
  • Emeris Fillson in Consequences Of Unoriginality is one as a result of a curse that he dubs "the Gary-Stu-ness Effect''. The only character completely immune to it is Princess Celestia.
  • In Dauntless, Lelouch is this even more so than he was in canon. Once he is outed as a prince, he is quickly voted as "Most Eligible Bachelor" and has crazed fangirls trying to sneak into his residence. Gets downplayed after his arranged marriage. Jeremiah Gottwald is a lesser example when he attends a party at Ashford Academy in his and Suzaku's honor. He is very disturbed by the teenage girls' attraction to him.
  • Despair's Last Resort has Hikaru implied to be this. He has a number of fangirls, and is actually relieved that the girls in the resort don't have feelings for him. However, the fact that he's cheated on all his previous girlfriends gives off the implication that he's faking this. But since he's dead, there's no way to know.
  • Discworld:
    • The return of Victor Tugelbend to Ankh-Morpork in A.A. Pessimal's Discworld fics. The former Moving Pictures star, who drove women crazy as a Rudolph Valentino expy, does what many misfits do to earn a living — he joins the City Watch. Carrot and Vimes note how women are really keen to talk to him and how they'll say anything, even to a Detective-Constable of the Cable Street Particulars. Victor himself is embarrassed by the attention and would prefer not to have it. hell, Even the Guys Want Him.
    • Ponder Stibbons gets this too when he visits Earth in The Many Worlds Interpretation. Penny, Bernadette and Amy are the first to notice the striking personal resemblance to an obscure fantasy film actor called Daniel Radcliffe...
  • To his dismay, the Doctor in both Doctor Whooves Adventures and its Recursive Fanfiction Doctor Whooves – The Series is quite attractive. Especially in Doctor Whooves – The Series, where he has to resort to running the hay away from the incensed (married!) ladies.
  • In A Dragon's Journey, Spike marries the three brides he HAS to marry barely a couple months into his nearly year-long trip, has an Accidental Marriage to another woman not long after, and there are hints he'll have more wives soon enough, and is quite the gentleman. Yes he's a chick magnet!
  • Naruto in Drifting; many girls are attracted to him because of his selfless personality, the fact that he is very good looking and wears clothes that show off his abs is just icing on the cake. Very much wish fulfillment on the author's part since Naruto was none of those things in canon.
  • Earth and Sky: Pipsqueak, who is described as "sma-hoking hot", and is eye candy for every mare in his age group. This is especially frustrating for Apple Bloom, before and after they hook up.
  • Papa Smurf in the Empath: The Luckiest Smurf story "Virtual Smurfality" becomes this when he ends up being the only Smurf left in the Imaginarium beach setting and the imaginary Smurfettes are all chasing after him. Empath in his normal state can sometimes be this.
  • Dude Magnet example in Axis Powers Hetalia fanfic Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità: Germany, Japan, and Prussia were attracted to Italy. Not that he seemed to notice.
  • Blaine is a Dude Magnet in Hunting the Unicorn. What he lacks in numbers, he makes up for in sadness. And terror.
  • In Karma In Retrograde, Touya Todoroki is an instant heartthrob the moment Jirou, Shouji, and Tokoyami get him out of his Rummage Sale Reject outfit, with random girls hitting on him in the mall to his embarrassment.
    Kaminari: I knew this was going to happen. Our chances with girls decrease with every Todoroki apparently.
    Touya: Don't worry, I'm not going to be stealing girls from you.
    Kaminari: You don't have to. They'll come flocking to you, leaving the rest of us poor souls behind.
  • John, much to his sorrow, in The Keys Stand Alone: The Soft World. (Even the guys want him in C'hou, where there is no taboo against same-sex [and other] relationships.) He's been transformed into a muscular, graceful, winged demigod that people openly talk about wanting to fuck... but he's no longer human and therefore has no sexual interest in humans. In fact, the idea of having sex with a normal woman is now vaguely repulsive to him. Sigh.
    • George remains attractive to alien women as long as at least part of him is human (he gets ogled as a centaur, for example). He'd prefer not to have sex with them, since he misses his wife very badly, but once he made it with a spy to distract her while John pretended to have sex with another woman while he tried to telepathically interrogate her. See above for why Hilarity Ensued.
    • Ringo actually gets the most women; both Ranala and Cirelle are extremely interested in him.
  • Kitsune no Ken: Fist of the Fox: Uchiha Sasuke is the most popular boy at Konoha High School, drooled over and idolized by most of the girls...not like he cares.
  • Kyon, the titular character in Kyon: Big Damn Hero. Being a brilliant martial artist as well as breaking up an illegal voyeuristic photography ring probably has something to do with it.
    • Koizumi too. All he has to do is walk into Kyon's class, and all the girls just stop what they're doing and stare.
  • The Many Dates of Danny Fenton (Danny Phantom Western Animation, TV Series, and Comic Books.): Surprising enough, Danny. With a few exceptions, he has managed to hit it off well with most of the girls he has gone out with.
    • Even Savannah Shane, Angelica's rival from All Grown Up!, is impressed by Danny and silently thinks he’s cute.
  • My Life Can't Lose Its Normality, being a Fix Fic, turns Kyousuke into one of these. So far, every girl in the series (except Manami) acts like a total pervert around him.
  • After being sent to the Maken-ki! world in Naruto: Ultimate Maken Shinobi, Naruto manages to attract the affections of, in order, Chacha, Kimi, Azuki, Aki, Minori and Furan (yes, he manages to turn a known lesbian bi-sexual). And that isn't even the full list.
    • Kengo manages to justify this (thanks to researching the phenomenon in the hopes of becoming a chick magnet himself) by pointing out that with everything Naruto has done to improve himself, combined with his good looks and....other things, Naruto has become a real life version of the the typical female's fantasy man.
  • In Neon Genesis Evangelion: Genocide, Shinji's female classmates are obsessed with him. Shinji doesn't care, and their behavior annoys him or embarrasses him.
  • The Newest Challenger: Naruto has managed to attract Sakura, Karen and Ibuki. Implied with Batsu. Ken has a theory that fighters like them (Ken, Ryu, Naruto, Batsu) tend to attract ActionGirls.
  • In A New ROAD of Misfortune, Touma starts to gather the interest of not only his classmates, the girls from other schools, and his branch companions, but also his teacher, his trainer, and the secretary's trainer, too. The Kami-yan disease, its called.
  • The One I Love Is: When the story begins Shinji realizes there are actually several girls drawn to him. Asuka and Rei spend the whole story fighting over him, and he has no idea why they like him and is terrified of hurting either of them.
  • The Pirate's Soldier: Heero Yuy quickly catches the eye of Ryoko, Ayeka, Mihoshi, Kiyone and to a lesser extent Washuu, largely due to his brave and compassionate nature despite always trying to act professional and stoic. Dialogue from the other Gundam characters implies he's been fairly popular among females even before the start of the story.
  • Spike in the Ponies Of Olympus series. In addition to Rarity finally realizing she returns his feelings, Wavedancer and Scales both develop crushes on him, and it's implied Scootaloo has a small one on him as well.
  • As far as the fanfic community is concerned, all of womankind exists to be shagged by Ranma Saotome. Browse the Ranma 1/2 section at, enter Ranma + anybody and watch the sheer number of fics you'll find. This is even more the case on the "Ranma 1/2 Lemon Archive" (NSFW) where you'll literally find hundreds, upon hundreds, of fanfics about Ranma boning women from nearly every anime, manga, video game, and television series under the sun.
  • Pokémon Reset Bloodlines: Ash Ketchum is aged to 15 years old, and by then he's developed a rather slim yet strong build, which coupled with his dark hair and swarthy skin makes him pretty good-looking in the eyes of many characters, including his female companions Misty, Iris, Anabel and Serena. During the story's Beach Episode, he gets the chance to show off his physique and many attractive women (some even older than him) try to flirt with him, much to his shock.
  • In Danny Phantom fanfic Resurrected Memories: Danny, after the Disasteroid, has become an In-Universe example. He has hundreds of fan girls, Paulina being the most obvious. Even Ember ends up falling for him though much more genuinely then Paulina.
  • This untitled fan-comic centers around Ezio effortlessly charming all the Soulcalibur V women. Natsu attributes it to his exotic Italian heritage.
  • Tails the Fox in the fanfic Tails of the Old Republic, a crossover / Fusion Fic between Sonic the Hedgehog and the videogame Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. It helps that he's now a strapping young teenager who's gone through an adolescent growth spurt. He's now 14 years old, 4 feet tall, and has a lean, well-cut physique. Tails gets hit upon my multiple characters, much to his confusion and embarrassment.
  • In The Tainted Grimoire, Luso has three girls who definitely like him. They are Kanin, Anna and Maria.
  • Despite his cold, cynical personality, Takeru from the Tamers Forever Series is still rather attractive to the ladies.
  • The Unexpected Love Life of Dusk Shine: Dusk Shine (gender-flipped Twilight) has the mane five girls attracted to him, plus Trixie and Luna.
  • Wandering Pilot has Shinji Ikari getting the attention of just about every lady of Queen's Blade. The trope is further reinforced as every woman has their own story and forges different relationships with him, from a Lust Object to a target of jealousy, yet develop steadily as the plot goes on. Also a justified trope as Shinji is an oddball in a world where males are usually antagonized, in addition to powerful healing abilities that make him even more attractive.
  • Emeth in Warriors of the World, to the point that both teenagers and women gasp and whisper when he passes by. He is markedly uncomfortable with the younger generation fawning over him, but uses his good looks and ladies' man skills to get information.
  • Weiss Reacts: Jaune Arc. He's smart enough to realise the unfortunate implications for him, and actively tries to avoid them. Given this is the Reactsverse, his attempts fail horribly.
  • George in With Strings Attached; he's singled out for sex by Fi'ar and Ma'ar.
    • Paul attracts his share of women (and men), but for one or another reason he never actually wants or gets any.
    • After Ringo defeats Mung, he is mobbed by the Warrior Women and has so much sex that the next day he's “little better than a smear on the ground.”
  • In X-Men: The Early Years, Scott Summers is intellectually aware of the fact that he somehow draws women, but he's helpless as to why.


  • Child of the Storm has Carol, much to her displeasure - she's a fourteen/fifteen year old who could pass for a well built and, frankly, hot university student and it's shown to get a significant amount of unwanted attention (she's sexually harassed in the second chapter she appears in). This goes a long way to explaining why she's bitter, cynical and defensive with something of a Hair-Trigger Temper when Harry first meets her. His behaviour (scrupulously treating her solely as a friend, being a genuine Nice Guy who puts their friendship first rather than a 'nice guy' who's just looking to get into her pants and steadfastly ignoring their increasing UST which is only increased by what they go through together and respecting her boundaries) goes a long way to make her soften and trust him enough to platonically share a bed with him when both are having Bad Dreams and let him into her mind to perform a little psychic healing. This ironically, actually increases the amount of Ship Tease between the two of them.
    • Jean Grey has dated Warren, is currently dating her school's Big Man on Campus, has Scott Summers hopelessly in love with her and her cousin, Harry, finds her disconcertingly attractive.
  • crawlersout: Fem!Harry, being a beautiful, wealthy young woman from a respectable pureblood family, is this in the 1930s, where Voldemort is not hanging over her head to (metaphorically) kill all potential romantic prospects. While she is set to become an Official Couple with Tom Riddle Jr. when he's older (in-story, he's currently ten and being raised by Harry), that does not stop her from attracting attention from the opposite sex, including one Tom's teachers, the two older brothers of one of Tom's friends, and, of all people, Gellert Grindelwald.
  • In Lucky Star fic Máscara Sonreindo, Ayano is so popular with boys that she had to make up a boyfriend to get guys to lay off of her. When her girlfriend Misao finds out, she gets confused and thinks that Ayano is cheating on her.
  • In Pokémon Reset Bloodlines, Elite Four member Lorelei is tall and has a voluptuous figure, has many men trying to ask her out, and even Erika has expressed interest in her. Unfortunately for everybody, she's already in a happy relationship with her boyfriend Frey.
  • To Trisha's annoyance in Son of the Desert, she's popular with boys. She has many suitors coming to her on street for her beauty and status of being a seventh daughter. She ignores them all for Hohenheim.
  • StarKitsProphcy: Starpaw is barely 6 moons old when several adult males, including the Clan leader Firestar and even non-ThunderClan cats like Blackfoot, begin asking her to be their mate.
