Bi the Way

Go To
That's what happens when you don't ask.

"I like hot girls. I like hot boys. I like hot people."
Piper Chapman, Orange Is the New Black

Characters who just happen to be bisexual. "Outing" a bisexual can be convoluted. Some pass for straight or gay or allow others to make their own assumptions. Bisexuals are not portrayed so much for their mannerisms as their supposed habits. As a result, a het-seeming bisexual reads as Straight Gay, whereas a bisexual that acts Camp Gay is likely to be seen as subverting the stereotypes associated with a camp persona. Actual bisexual stereotypes are generally limited to glam rockers, hippies, swingers and other flamboyant presentations of alternative sexuality. So in the end, it's likely that Bob or Alice Bisexual will be outed in passing.

Compare If It's You, It's Okay, where someone who has shown interest in people of the opposite sex in the past has one exception. Contrast Depraved Bisexual, where bisexuality is used as a way to make the character seem more evil (or conversely, being bisexual makes you evil), and Anything That Moves, where bisexuality is treated as a lack of discrimination in partners (in real life the two are not necessarily linked; just as straight and gay people don't find everyone of their preferred sex attractive, bisexual people don't find "everyone" attractive). Contrast Suddenly Sexuality, where a character skips from gay to straight or vice versa with no warning, and No Bisexuals, where the characters/narrative don't consider bisexuality as an option.


Compare Ambiguously Bi, where things are more, well, ambiguous. The most likely bisexual archetype to lead to But Not Too Bi. Compare and contrast Everyone Is Bi, where either this trope is in effect for the majority of the cast or sexuality is simply presented as a non-issue. See Kinsey Scale of Tropes for more about bisexuality tropes.

  • A Yellow Pages commercial in Canada invokes this. The woman in the commercial is described as falling in love very quickly. When she scares off a guy she's interested in, the narrator offers her a "Plan B": a waitress cleaning up the table the man left from.
  • A Las Vegas tourism ad plays with this. A mixed-sex couple is checking into a Vegas hotel but the clerk is absent. The woman of the couple goes to freshen up. A single man then approaches the desk and the returning desk clerk offers to check them in as a couple. The men consider it as a voiceover announces that "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas."

    Anime and Manga 
  • Ai Kora: Haiji Kikuno is introduced as a decent young man who says that a woman's best feature is a pure heart. After Hachibei's failed attempt to prove All Men Are Perverts and that Haiji is Not So Above It All, Haiji confronts him on the rooftop... and confesses his love to him, praising Hachibei for being so honest about his "parts love".
  • Ai no Kusabi: Despite not reciprocating Mimea's feelings and being in love with Guy, Riki is suggested to also be attracted to women in the novel by masturbating to the female form. Something which even triggers Iason's jealous anger.
  • Axis Powers Hetalia gets a lot of this due to the sheer amount of Ho Yay and a disproportionate male-to-female distribution, and that practically any pairing is possible with the assistance of a History book. While the fans pair up almost every combination, the manga itself has a number of instances of this trope either directly stated or through a cellulose layer of subtext:
    • Germany and Italy. Italy hits on girls all the time, but his first real love was the Holy Roman Empire. And, following the theory that HRE = Germany, then he fell in love with Chibitalia when he thought the other was female.
    • Lovable Sex Maniac France has no problem going after guys (like trying to take advantage of a sick England and coming onto an underage Italy) or ladies, as seen with him flirting and heavy-petting with Seychelles. The author himself mentions that France is attracted to beautiful men and women. As well as some non-humans.
    • Prussia is at times hinted to like Hungary and is also shown to like Italy very much, only referring to him as "Italia-chan", considering him 'cute', and even going as far as to ask him on a date, only for Italy to be oblivious to his question, having been fixated on Prussia's bird.
    • Austria has been married to Spain, didn't mind taking his pants off to 'practice' with Germany who was freaking out over being a boy, and later was married to Hungary.
    • Turkey is known for pursuing Japan and possibly Iceland, but in the past he also pursued Greece's mother Byzantine.
    • Spain was married to Austria, proposed to marry Veneziano (who he lusted for in Italy's teen years to the point of making Italy creeped out) and Romano, he has a fantasy of having the Italy brothers as his personal maids, but he also has shown interest in random girls.
    • Hungary was once married to Austria, but in a volume 4 strip, practically flirts with Ukraine.
    • Belarus is madly, creepily in love with her brother Russia, stalks him from every corner, and will take nobody else. Yet from what little we know of Belarus and Ukraine's relationship, there's hints Belarus will stalk her big sister as well and enjoys her breasts, despite also being jealous of her.
    • Taiwan has mainly been ship teased with Japan, but she's been shown to have a thing for women's bodies as well, especially in Hetalia Hetaween 2013.
    • In one strip Emperor Nero mentions "a cute boy wouldn't be bad at all" when talking about Roman woman lovers being scary before leaning towards Anicetus who pushes him away.
  • Bizenghast : The first time Edaniel transforms into his (very hot) human form, he asks Dinah "Wanna make out?" The second time he transforms, he asks Vincent the same thing.
  • Black Butler:
    • In chapter 37 Nina Hopkins states that she only likes girls, and boys that are 15 years or younger, prompting Sebastian to comment that he does not need to know what she does in her spare time. She is slightly perverse in this regard, openly groping Mey-Rin's breasts and thighs.
    • In the Ciel in Wonderland OVA, Ciel asks the Cheshire Cat (Grell Sutcliffe) which path he should take to get to the White Rabbit (Sebastian), to which she responds "I prefer going both paths! Two-ti-ming~!"
    • In the canon storyline, Grelle Sutcliffe helped Madam Red largely out of romantic feelings for her, and has displayed attraction (lots of it) towards "Sebas-chan" and Will.
    • Viscount Druitt takes a liking to the maid Hannah and plenty of pretty ladies, but also appears to flirt with Ciel both when he's Disguised in Drag and when he's dressed normally as a boy. He also comments appreciatively on Joanne and Alois's looks and gets very excited when he looks at Edward in the behind the scenes episode and sees flowers and Bishie Sparkle.
    • Edgar enjoys dancing with ladies but his interactions with Ciel are suspect. There's also his actions around Joanne.
    • Ran-Mao sits on Lau's lap and acts flirtatiously around him and Ciel but also once stripped Meirin in the behind the scenes episode and had them both switch clothing before rubbing Meirin's thigh seductively and grabbing her boobs.
  • As of Chapter 81, Revy from Black Lagoon. Notable for being a deliberate invocation of Depraved Bisexual, as Revy was saying that as a threat.
    Revy: In prison... I've won over some sex-starved dykes by playing the man's role. And... after that, their fingers just weren't enough for them ever again.
  • Bubblegum Crisis:
    • Sylvie admits that the sex of a potential partner isn't important to her. But then, she's a sexaroid boomer; do androids/gynoids that were designed as pleasure units even count?
    • We're told that, before being recruited by Sylia for the Knight Sabers, Priss did have a boyfriend. But she seems to spend a great deal of time with - and affection on - members of the fairer sex during the series proper.
    • The reboot, Bubblegum Crisis 2040 has Sylia. While she and her mechanic Nigel are Friends with Benefits and confidants, she can act pretty handsy towards the other Knight Sabers. I.e., she practically checks Linna out when they meet!
  • Cross Ange has Ange the protagonist herself being this. Has no problems giving her first time to a guy, yet also has no problems kissing women.
  • D.Gray-Man:
    • Kanda Yuu is revealed to have been looking for a woman that he remembers loving in a past life for all his life. When he discovers that this woman was reborn as his male childhood best friend, Alma, he still chooses to run away with him.
    • Lavi goes nuts whenever he sees a pretty girl but he also has considerable Ho Yay towards Allen and Kanda.
  • Durarara!!:
  • Fairy Tail: Lucy regularly swoons over both guys and girls, has a list of ideal boyfriends, and apparently owns all of Mirajane's centerfolds.
  • FAKE:
    • Dee Laytener is bi according to his own word. He does tell a 12-year-old girl that he would definitely date her in ten years. But because he is attracted to Ryo, another guy, during the manga, he comes off mostly as gay.
    • In the sequel, FAKE II, Ryo himself tells a story about a girl he fell in love with when he was younger.
  • Fruits Basket:
    • Ayame is in love with his adorable assistant Mine Kuramae but has no trouble flirting with Shigure. Apparently, when he was Student Council President he claimed that if needed, he'd give himself to both men and women alike.
    • Haru told Tohru that Yuki was his first love within two or three hours of hitting on her.
    • Mangaka Natsuki Takaya is on record as having said that Shigure Sohma's editor, Mitsuru, does not know (or, apparently, care) which sex Ritsu Sohma is, despite the fact that she is dating him.
  • Chou Ryuuen aka Nuriko from Fushigi Yuugi, if you take his canon feelings for Hotohori and his more ambiguous thoughts on Miaka as this.
  • Tsugumi Rosenmeier of Genesis of Aquarion expresses an explicit infatuation with Reika, while sharing a much more playful and comfortable, but still fairly obvious attraction to Jun.
  • Full Metal Panic!:
    • In the Hot Springs Episode of Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu Melissa Mao mentions that she learned so many languages by sleeping with men. A few moments later we hear Tessa telling her to "Please don't stare at me like that!" while Mao is rubbing ointment on her naked butt. Also in the The Battlegroup Commander's Sort of Boring Day we see Mao groping Tessa's breasts while she's passed out from drinking too much.
    • In the novels, Lemon seems to be Bi The Way towards Sousuke. He had a crush on Nami, especially due to her cute, flirty teasing, and is shown to be rather pervertedly happy when he accidentally found himself groping her breast while she's sleeping. But at the same time, it's shown numerous times that he has a strong attraction to Sousuke. When he first saw Sousuke, he thought Sousuke was very good looking and "charming," despite Sousuke being completely emotionless (read: "eye candy"). Later, after Sousuke wins a tournament that helped win back Lemon's money, Lemon hugged Sousuke with "more passion than a french kiss would warrant," making Sousuke slightly uncomfortable. And later still, Lemon gets drunk, and subsequently invades Sousuke's personal space by hugging and groping him while blushing - which irritates Sousuke to no end.
  • In From the New World, the idilic society is based on sex as stress relief, so people has sexual relations from early age, so it deals with unwanted teenage parenthood by forbidding heterosexual sex until early adulthood. As such, homosexual relationships are the norm for children until they are adolescents, although they can have platonic feelings towards the opposite sex. Saki is infatuated with Shun but is in a mandatory teenage homosexual relationship with Maria; Satoru loves Shun, but when he grows up, falls in love with Saki, who loves him back; Shun loves Saki and is Satoru boyfriend; and Maria is in love with Saki but ultimately choose to prize Mamoru's devotion. The only one who is not bisexual, Mamoru , has a chronic case of Single-Target Sexuality towards Maria.
  • Gankutsuou: Franz danced with the beautiful Marchioness at a ball and was later willing to have sex with her. It's also canon that he's VERY in love with Albert.
  • In the Ghost in the Shell manga, Major Motoko Kusanagi lives with her boyfriend, but also regularly enjoys some sexual VR-program with some of her female friends. However, whether or not this isn't solely because it's impossible for a woman cyborg to have sex with a man isn't specified. In the anime she has no boyfriend, but still enjoys the company of her long-term female friends - Ran, seen coming out of the shower as the Major and Kurutan are discussing various complex philosophical issues (in keeping with the series' typical expectations of its viewers). She also has distinctly flirty dialogue with Kurutan in another episode of the first season, indicating that they have a relationship. Averted in Ghost in the Shell: Arise, as she is straight in that continuity.
  • Seiji Kisaragi in Gokinjo Monogatari.
  • Practically every character in Gravitation. When it's convenient, that is.
  • Misty Brown from the manga Gunsmith Cats. She's definitely gay (throughout the series she has a crush on Rally), and quite openly so, but it's also very heavily implied that she has feelings for Bean Bandit (she tries to make light of this when confronted, arguing that "When a guy takes a bullet for you, everything changes" and assuring Rally that "You're still my first choice").
  • Edogawa-sensei from Hanjuku Joshi had relationships with men before Mari acts as her Closet Key.
  • Haruhi Suzumiya has Haruhi herself confess to Kyon that this trope applies to her when she tells him " long as they aren't an ordinary human, it doesn't matter if they're male or female" in regards to who she wants as a partner.
  • Hayate the Combat Butler:
    • Nishizawa Ayumu, who is refreshingly good natured and frank about being a little aroused by her best friend, who also loves her childhood crush.
    • Wataru's mother was frustated because her childhood love married someone else, and that childhood love was no other than Nagi's mother. Afterwards, Wataru's mother married Wataru's father, who she used to love.
  • Nene in Hyakko, the Class Representative, is openly bisexual—though considering the very small amount of males the cast runs into, and the extremes to which Nene goes with her lesbian side, she could very easily slip into Schoolgirl Lesbians territory at any moment.
  • JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has Dio Brando, who series creator Hirohiko Araki confirmed will go after any male or female as long as they interest him. Interestingly enough for a villain, he averts the Depraved Bisexual trope, as his sexuality (while pretty overwhelming) is never seen as part of his sociopathy. In fact, it can be argued that his bisexuality is one of his very few redeeming personality traits, as it is what allows him to form the only meaningful bond with another person (Pucci) we ever see him have in the entire series.
  • Junjou Romantica: Since Miyagi's first love was a woman and he is currently very much in love with a man.
  • From Kiznaiver there is Maki Honoka, the High-and-Mighty Ice Queen of the group. She is revealed in episode 6 and 7 to have been in love with a girl named Ruru, she died of an illness after they part ways, and becomes Maki's Lost Lenore. By the end of the anime though, she is implied to have started a relationship with Yuta.
  • Katekyō Hitman Reborn!: Tsuna has feelings for Kyoko, blushed when seeing Lal Mirch naked and when Chrome kissed him on the cheek, and also blushes around and doesn't mind getting subtexty with his male guardians.
  • Aoi Reiji from the Yaoi Genre manga Love Mode is breaking up with a female lover in the beginning of the series, is identified as Bisexual by his older brother, then ultimately decides the love of his life is Naoya. He affectionately calls him a "brat".
  • Madlax arranges a date with a (male) guerilla fighter, flirts with a boy she's hired to protect, sleeps cute and cuddles with a woman she's hired to protect, and ends up with her (female) Rival in the finale.
  • Maid-Sama!: Maria Miyazono.
  • Asougi Rin from Mnemosyne beds both multiple beautiful women and handsome studs with regular intervals.
  • Kou from Monochrome Factor flirts with both Haruka and Aya. (This is an anime-only addition, however.)
  • Nagasumi of My Bride is a Mermaid has a crush on Sun and is repeatedly shown to be as smitten as his mother with Masa in the anime.
  • Nezumi from No6 kisses both Sion and a female sex worker.
  • There's a surprising example in Please Twins!, where the flamboyantly gay Shimazaki is actually bisexual; both he and Tsubaki have been pursuing Maiku to avoid admitting they still have feelings for each other.
  • Ouran High School Host Club:
    • Haruhi Fujioka notes offhandedly that her gender identity is pretty weak anyway, so she doesn't mind if people think she's a guy. And guys, girls, looks? What's that compared to who they actually are, anyway? Though, in truth she doesn't show anything more than politeness to girls from this point on. At the end of the first episode/chapter, she jokes that it might be fun to have fangirls, adding that maybe she's "a little bent that way". And she doesn't seem to mind flirting with the girls, although she may or may not actually understand that she's flirting.
    • Haruhi's father Ryouji "Ranka" Fujioka is a male crossdresser and confirmed to be bi in side-materials, but after the death of Haruhi's mother he said he could never love another woman.
  • George from Paradise Kiss, mentioned in an aside. If standing on top of your car and announcing it loudly can be called that.
  • Revolutionary Girl Utena:
    • Wakaba is in love with Saionji, but she calls Utena her "boyfriend" and is very affectionate towards her.
    • Just Wakaba? It'd be easier to state who ISN't bisexual in Revolutionary Girl Utena.
  • Yukari Sendou of Rosario + Vampire is attracted to both members of the semi-Official Couple, Moka and Tsukune. She's a Shipper on Deck for the two of them to get together, because that way it'll be easier for her to score a threesome.
  • Fairly blatantly Rosalie from Rose of Versailles.
  • Sailor Moon:
    • Implied in the third manga arc with the feelings Usagi shows toward Haruka/Uranus even after finding out that Haruka is a girl. She's also quite taken with Rei in the first arc, making the same heart-eyes at Rei as she does at Tuxedo Mask, and she makes a point to call Rei her "beautiful" friend whenever she's going through the recap introductions before each volume.
    • Minako and Rei herself are hinted to be this in the manga. Both of them have been shown attracted by boys (Artemis kept count of Minako's 'first loves' during Codename: Sailor V, congratulating when she reached the 5000th first love), and there are hints that, somewhere down the line, they fell in love with each other (in particular in the final arc and promotional material they tend to mirror Haruka and Michiru, the resident lesbian couple). That, and Minako too is been shown attracted by Haruka even after finding out her true gender.
    • Kunzite has a boyfriend in the anime and is shown to be attracted to Reika, a girl.
  • Ryuuki from Saiunkoku Monogatari flaunts his attraction to men in order to show himself as a king who won't produce a heir anytime soon and he once teasingly flirts with his brother in disguise, though Ryuki does not know that badly squicking him. Also it is fairly clear from the beginning that he's falling for Shuurei hard. He has to outright declare his attraction to women and kiss her to make Shuurei realize it, because she masterfully ignores his non-so-subtle gestures.
  • Shinshi Doumei Cross:
    • Maora is attracted to both Haine and Maguri.
    • Ushio ends up with Senri and is shown dating scores of boys - but the latter turns out to be a ploy for Haine's attention, who she's in love with. She succeeds in guilting her into a (brief) relationship.
  • Sora of Shitsurakuen has got quite the harem of adoring schoolgirls who she's rescued from evil boys, but when Akane took off his glasses, she went completely goggle-eyed for him too.
  • Snow White with the Red Hair: Obi's former coworker Torou introduces herself by draping herself over a flustered Mitsuhide and flirting with him, Zen, Kiki and Shirayuki inviting any of them to her room later. While she wasn't lying about appreciating their looks she was actually slyly asking Obi to meet her later for a job using a code his old group uses, Obi mostly seems to have gone with her to keep her away from the others.
  • Desslok from Space Battleship Yamato has slept with at least two women (Starsha and Mela). And yet he has male bath attendants who rub him down vigorously and then clothe him and he hits on his generals. And he had an entire canon song written about how he and Wildstar are "bound together" and "unable to live with it anymore".
  • The titular Steel Angel Kurumi. She falls in love with both of her masters Nako (the female) and Nakahito (the male).
  • From The Demon Ororon there's Othello, brother of the title character, "the most eccentric playboy" of the royal family of Hell. He was previously married to and madly in love with a woman, Futaba, and currently obsessed with the tragic bounty-hunter Mitsume.
  • Zigzagged with Risa Momioka To Love-Ru: throughout her appearances she ranges from full-blown bisexual, situational bi or merely bi-curious. It doesn't help she doubles as The Tease, making her interactions with girls, particularly when it comes to Skinship Grope, really ambiguous on whether she's simply playing around or not (the latter turns "unhealthy" occasionally). What really supports Risa going both ways is she isn't just attracted to male protagonist Rito Yuuki (though it could be her simply teasing him a lot) but also his "Riko" persona, which hasn't gone unnoticed (nor untouched) by her. Furthermore, in an extra chapter of Spin-Off sequel To Love-Ru Darkness, Risa showers alongside Momo Belia Deviluke using the excuse to wash her back, only for it to quickly devolve into Risa having her way with Momo. Whereas it's usually Played for Laughs with Rito and other girls, this particular moment is played entirely for sensual purposes.
  • In Toradora! Minori Kushieda suggests to (her crush) Ryuji at one point that she might like girls, but backs off quickly. As usual, it's hard to tell how serious she is, although her feelings for Taiga become painfully obvious after a while.
  • Trinity Blood: Jane Jocelyn, one of the candidates for Albion's throne. She's apparently had seven husbands, and is not even remotely shy about showing her blatant, leering interest in Esther.
  • Luka Crosszeria from Betrayal Knows My Name is in love with Yuki in both his female incarnation and his male incarnation.
  • The Femme Fatale Kanoe from X/1999 straddles the line between this and Depraved Bisexual. She has a sexual relationship with her Dragon Yuuto, isn't above flirting with Satsuki and was quite touchy-feely with both Fuuma and his sister Kotori (though she was unconscious at that time) in The Movie - yet, to our knowledge, her evil and/or morally grey actions aren't tied to her bisexuality.
  • Judai Yuki from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX is implied to be bisexual. He has expressed attraction to a female duel monster, but his relationship with Johan is so incredibly laced with subtext that his Love Interest, Yubel promptly points it out to him. There's also the fact that Yubel is also a duel monster with an Ambiguous Gender that extends to both their current and past lives.
    • Alito from Yu Gi Oh Zexal is bisexual, as he develops a crush on both Kotori and Yuma.
  • The Familiar of Zero:
    • Julio is in love with the female lead Louise, but he has also expressed an attraction to Louise's boyfriend and Familiar Saito. In the second series, he tells Saitou that he loves him. He also said that he wanted to kiss not only Louise but Saito as well, during a sword fight with Saito.
    • Also the bar owner and Siesta's uncle Scarron. He is every stereotype to the Camp Gay from dressing up in women's outfits and having his staff refer to him as mademoiselle. So it always comes to a complete shock to every character when they find out one of the staff members is his daughter. Also, he tends to hit on his male customers and has also taken a liking to Saito, saying that he is "just his type." This also includes one instance where Scarron runs really fast towards Saito and Glomps him, holding him close to his body and releasing hearts. Going back to the Love Potion incident during Season 3, Scarron becomes influenced by the Love Potion, promptly Glomps Saito upon seeing him and tries to plant a kiss on him. In episode 4 season 4 Scarron calls Saito an "attractive guy".
  • Sumire from the Venus Versus Virus manga has a male love interest, but is quite noticeably in love with Lucia. She eventually says so herself, after a bunch of Ship Tease, though considering the nature of the series it comes off vague.
  • In one Lucky Star strip Konata more-or-less mentioned she doesn't want to be a lesbian... But she just happens to be one. In another strip though, she had said she wasn't a lesbian. She also shows interest in boys.
  • Mayo Chiki!: Kanade says that Subaru was her first love and she kisses Jiro.
  • Midori Days: Kouta Shingyoji is a childhood friend of Midori's and also a fellow first year at Ogurabashi High School. He was always in love with Midori, but over the course of the series he manages to develop "feelings" for Seiji that make the miniature Midori extremely nervous.
  • Prism: Megu's teacher cheerfully explains to her that she swings both ways when Megu goes to her for relationship advice.
  • Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito is a famous Yuri Genre anime, and the lead Hazuki never show interest in anyone but Hatsumi, but Hatsumi was interested in both Hazuki and a boy whom Hazuki found her kissing early on.
  • Sekirei has quite a few characters that have expressed interest in both genders. This includes two harems with a male member (Minato and Homura, Mikogami and Mutsu) as well as Musubi and Yukari.
  • Nao from Bloody Cross mentions in chapter 15 that he's fine with being with either men or women as long as he likes them.
  • Yuuki from Saki is the only female character who has expressed interest in a male character (Kyoutarou), but at the same time, is also quite fascinated by the size of Nodoka's breasts.
  • Practically every character from any series created by CLAMP.
  • Subaru from .hack//SIGN gets into a relationship with Tsukasa without knowing his real gender. Her decision doesn't change when she finds out.
  • Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid:
    • Lucoa spends most of her time being uncomfortably close to Shouta and she also slept with her sister in the past (though the latter was due to a cursed bottle of alcohol).
    • Ilulu has expressed the desire to bear Kobayashi's children on several occasions and she later develops feelings for Taketo. She also didn't have any reservations about forcing herself onto Tohru when she went into heat.
  • Saiko states she's willing to be anyone's bride no matter their gender in Tokyo Ghoul. Tsukiyama preys on both girls and boys, and Eto is interested in Kaneki and Kanae. Touka is implied to be bisexual with her feelings towards Yoriko and Kaneki.
  • Zagi from Jyu-Oh-Sei is in a complicated but definitely romantic relationship with Karim, his female second-in-command. He also blatantly flirts with Thor, the main character, to the point that Karim gets jealous.
  • Anna from Wandering Son begins dating Nitori in middle school but they break up after Anna becomes confused over dating a "boy" who is actually transgender. After a chunk of Unresolved Sexual Tension the two end up dating again. Anna eventually resolves her confusion at the end of the series, saying she doesn't mind being as a lesbian.
  • In Recovery of an MMO Junkie, Moriko and Yuuta fall for each other despite both playing as characters of the opposite gender in an MMO, not realising the other is also doing it. With Yuuta it's not as clear whether he actually fell for Moriko's character Hayashi, but Moriko explicitly gets a crush on Yuuta's character Lilly long before realising she's played by a guy.

    Comic Books 
  • Hellblazer has main character John Constantine. The instances are so infrequent that many fans forget this fact until a new plotline reintroduces it. John has far more girlfriends and female lovers than male lovers.
  • X-Men:
    • Mystique's early characterization had her ambiguously paired with the female clairvoyant Destiny (at least, until her death). For several decades the editorial staff would not admit the depth of their relationship (and, under The Comics Code, couldn't). Since then, she has had at least two children by male lovers retconned into her backstory.
    • Shatterstar from X-Factor, eventually entering a relationship with Rictor.
    • Psylocke has a brief sexual relationship with Cluster in Uncanny X-Force, and nobody even mentions the fact that they're both women. Slightly complicated by Cluster being an aspect of the (otherwise male) Fantomex, with whom Psylocke also had a relationship. Although she doesn't show any attraction to Weapon XIII, the third (also male) aspect.
    • Kitty Pryde has dated multiple men in her life, most notably Colossus. However, she has unusually close emotional relationships with women, best demonstrated that one time it was shown that she is the only one who can wield Illyana Rasputin's soul-sword. All of this would make her Ambiguously Bi, but Chris Claremont has declared Rachel Summers to be the love of Kitty's life.
  • In Birds of Prey Black Canary was going to quip that she was "75% heterosexual" when fighting the scantily clad Talia. Placeholder dialog confusion (not, as many believe, Executive Meddling or Gay Panic) accidentally made the line change to "heterosexual to the bone" in the final printing, much to writer Gail Simone's chagrin.
  • Spider-Man:
    • Black Cat has been known to have both boyfriends and girlfriends, and is married to a woman in Spider-Girl.
    • In Ultimate Spider-Man it's pretty strongly implied that Gwen Stacy is either bi or just now realizing she's gay. In a conversation with Mary Jane she pretty much admits that a slightly passive attempt to break her (MJ) and Peter up was because she had a crush on Mary Jane. She immediately after claims to have simply been screwing with MJ; given Gwen's snarky, tricksterish personality either option or both could be true...
  • Moondragon (sort of). She tried mating with the original Quasar, then started seeing the newer more female Quasar, though that could be just her trying to fulfill a prophecy. She and and the new Quasar (Phyla-Vell) were lovers before the latter was Quasar, and Moony had had a lesbian tryst (with Marlo Chandler, Rick Jones' wife) before that. Moondragon even said that she didn't feel any true attraction to the men she had tried to attract in the past, so this is a debatable case.
  • Painkiller Jane has slept with a woman on a nude beach, and kissed her best female friend.
  • In Empowered, Sistah Spooky has had relationships with men and women. So far, Ninjette's only known confirmed sexual encounter (which occurred prior to the start of the series) was with another woman, though she is obviously attracted to men (*cough*Thug Boy*cough*) as well. Emp is said to be a "three-drink bisexual."
  • Scott Pilgrim: When Ramona's Psycho Ex-Girlfriend attacked him, Scott didn't understand why. It took him a while to figure out that he was dating a bisexual, and he didn't handle it well.
  • Chester and Deck of Havoc Inc, if Chester's flirting and Deck's cyborg ex-fiance are any indication that they're not just gay.
  • Catman of Secret Six fame, according to Word of God. There were enough hints that some already suspected it, especially his Ho Yaytastic relationship with Deadshot, which Gail Simone says was as obvious as "a neon sign." His bisexuality was supposed to be revealed in the main story until it got Cut Short by the DC relaunch, and the next time she got to write him in the reboot version of the book the story opens with Thomas on a date with both a woman and a man who comment on how hot he is while fighting Federal agents sent to bring him in.
  • After years of hinting, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen's Mina Murray's bisexuality was confirmed in Century: 1969, in which she seduces Julia Gallion. Before that she was also in a relationship with Orlando, who can change gender at will.
    • It's implied that Mina's partner, Allen Quatermain, is also this in his relationship with Orlando, though it may be a case of If It's You, It's Okay.
  • The second storyline in the Vertigo Comics Madame Xanadu title featured a flashback in which Xanadu has a female lover in the 15th century.
  • Both Prodigy and Loki in the second volume of Young Avengers, though Loki doesn't voice this until after his Plot Relevant Ageup, or at least nobody takes him seriously until then. Apparently, all Asgardians are this, due to not having designated sexual orientations, meaning Thor, Sif, the Warriors Three, and many others are this, too.
    Wiccan (after Prodigy told them that Loki hit on him): Really? WOW. Though I guess that explains the flirty.
  • Laura Wilson, the protagonist of another Kieron Gillen/Jamie McKelvie series, is bisexual. Along with half the cast.
  • A minor running gag in the Marvel Universe is Deadpool having loads of Ambiguously Gay moments despite his constant insistence that he's straight. Word of God states that he's pansexual and aware of it but simply refuses to admit it, no matter how blatantly obvious his sexuality is.
    Yellow Text: Dude we have a guy inside of us!
    Deadpool: (without a hint of irony or awareness) Yeah and not in the fun way.
  • Julie Power: During Julie's time with The Loners there were hints that she might be unsure of her sexual identity. This was not resolved in the series itself, but in Avengers Academy, it was revealed that she didn't worry about the genders but the persons, which is the definition of pansexuality. She also once dated with Karolina Dean, the Lipstick Lesbian from Runaways.
  • Batman:
    • Harley Quinn, much like her Batman: The Animated Series counterpart, is both madly in love with the Joker and has a "Special Bond beyond friendship" with Poison Ivy. Many comics show Harley as not being too picky with her flings. As for Ivy, while she too isn't picky in the fling department, Harley is about the only human she has actual feelings for.
    • An arc during the Genevieve Valentine run of Catwoman in the New 52 era revealed that Selina is bisexual. There had been much fanservicey Les Yay innuendo during earlier eras of the comic, but this arc treated it much more seriously and implied that she herself had only recently realised it.
  • Killian Reed of Clean Room aggressively hits on Chloe but is open to sharing her with Avid.
  • Red Sonja is depicted in the Gail Simone run as preferring men but open to women as well. One arc ends with her visiting a brothel with both male and female workers and a ridiculous sack of gold.
    Sonja: I'll take one of everything.
  • Aja from Jem and the Holograms is bisexual and both a Chick Magnet and a Dude Magnet.

  • Daken, Wolverine's son, has had a host of lovers both male and female, sometimes flirting with both genders on the same page. No one bats an eye, especially considering he has a pheromone power that can make people feel attraction towards him. Of course, he doesn't care a whit about any of them, but that's a different trope.

    Fan Works 
  • Italy is this in Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità to Germany's and Japan's delight. Turns out Germany is bi too since as Holy Rome, he had feelings for Italy even when he thought Italy was a girl.

  • Advice and Trust:
    • Rei has admitted to being in love with both Shinji (a boy) and Asuka (a girl).
    • Ritsuko also starts showing interest in Maya after it becomes painfully clear that Gendo doesn't have any feelings for her. There's also mention of her and Misato experimenting in college.
    • Kensuke's girlfriends were a couple before they hooked up with him (Word of God says that they originally started dating him as The Beard, but it eventually evolved into a genuine 3-way relationship).
    • Kaworu might be bisexual, being in love with Rei and having memories of being attracted to Shinji in other timelines, but the whole alternate realities thing muddies the water a bit.
  • In The Parselmouth of Gryffindor, Pansy Parkinson breaks up with Draco to be with… Helen Monroe. Draco doesn't take it well, but not because Helen is a girl; because she's a Hufflepuff.
  • Many characters in Ruby and Nora, but the most prominent is one of our leaders, Nora.
  • In Child of the Storm has a lot of this, especially among the divine community. Uhtred, teenage Sean Bean shaped Asgardian warrior, casually reveals that he goes both ways with no ceremony whatsoever. Diana Herculeis a.k.a. Diana of Themyscira also implies that while she's not really looking yet, being 12, (though by the time she's 13, Carol mentions that Diana's 'had an eyeful'), she's bi. According to Word of God, they're both 'lol at your quaint little categories' sexual.
    • Hercules, naturally, is definitely bi.
    • John Constantine has also been confirmed to be bi, as per usual.
  • Doing It Right This Time: Rei rather off-handedly outs herself in Chapter 1. ("I am not sure what I want to do when I grow up, but I would like to find out what it is like to kiss a boy. I think I would like to find out what it is like to kiss a girl, as well...") Completely averted with Asuka, who was anything but matter-of-fact about it after experiencing a Stupid Sexy Flanders moment.
  • Evangelion 303: Kaworu has dated both Rei -a woman- and Saburo -a man- (though Shinji suspects that his attraction to Rei is actually a case of If It's You, It's Okay).
  • My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fics: likely due to the sheer number of female characters compared to males
    • In Rainbow in the Dark, Mecha turns out to be this when Rainbow Dash finally meets her.
    • The Changelings of ''Equestria in Shadow Snark'.
    • Common in RainbowDoubleDash's Lunaverse. For example, in the story An Early Reunion, Princess Cadenza casually makes mention of having had three husbands and a wife over her then-seven hundred years of life. The creatobur has stated that while ponies tend towards heterosexuality, they are usually much more willing to experiment than humans.
    • In The Model Caretaker, Fleur de Lis, who had been outed by her husband, setting off the plot, doesn't bother to hide her bisexuality anymore, thinking that most ponies would have heard about it already.
    • In The Dear Sweetie Belle Continuity at least one of Princess Luna's lovers before Shining Armor was a mare, and in "Cutie Mark Crusaders Dream Warriors" it is offhandedly mentioned that Sweetie Belle had dated Twist, while at the time she is shown in a relationship with Button Mash. She was also previously shown in a relationship with Featherweight.
    • In MLP, Twilight, Pinkie Pie, and Luna are all bisexual.
    • In Break Your Heart, Twilight offhandedly comes out as bisexual, and Pinkie soon follows suit.

  • Michael Patterson tried repressing it for years, but eventually came out as this in The New Retcons.
  • Subverted in My Immortal. Draco and Vampire are bisexual and, according to Tara, Enoby and Willow are too. However, we never see any proof of the latter, because all of the focus in respect to bisexuality seems to be focused on the "Hot Sensitive Bi Guys" who are "sooooo HOT and SEXAH!!!" Moreover, Tara seems to be disgusted with the idea of female bisexuality (despite Ebony seeming to be just that), and she calls her audience, more than once, "Gay fags", among other things.
  • In the Discworld story The Graduation Class, the sexually adventurous Quirmian Assassin, Emmanuelle-Marie Lapoignarde les Deux-Epées, is in trouble and looking for a new career (part of the back-story explaining how she came to be recruited and trained as an Assassin). She is being interviewed by Mrs Rosie Palm for her suitability to follow the vocation of Seamstress. Rosie raises the possibility she could go on, er, a special list for lady customers with sophisticated tastes.
    "We would not ask you to do anything you find distasteful or against your nature. What is your attitude on, for instance, Ephebian Island lifestyles?"
    Emmmanuelle looked blank for an instant. Rosie tried another euphemism.
    "Sapphic practices. L'amour entre des filles."
    "I've dabbled. But it is not really to my taste. A small but significant something is... missing."
    "A shame. Or you could have gone onto a really special list we direct to female clients of the Guild who are of, shall we say, refined tastes. I can never get enough ladies onto that list, which is a shame, as it commands really premium prices. Supply and demand, you see. Ah well, let me know if you change your mind!"
  • One Puella Magi Madoka Magica fancomic did exactly this with Junko.
    Junko: Oh? Girlfriends with Akemi-san? Nice job, Madoka, you sure know to pick 'em. Heck, when I was your age, I...
    Madoka: Wha- Mama, you're not mad?
    Junko: Why would I be? I'm bi.
    Madoka: Eh?
    Junko: Honey, I married your father.

  • Abby Scuito McGee in the NCIS fanfic "Shards To a Whole" identifies herself as bi. Although in a happy marriage to Tim McGee, she does find women attractive, admitting to Tim that she had a crush on Kate Todd, and has fantasies about Jimmy Palmer's wife Brianna. This becomes more prominent in later chapters, in which the McGees and the Palmers begin exploring a possible foursome relationship. Tim, Jimmy and Brianna identify themselves as straight, although Brianna is taking an If It's You, It's Okay approach with Abby.
  • Real!Syaoran in Tsubasa -RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE- fanfic Shatterheart turns out to be this. He was in love with Sakura but is sexually attracted to Kurogane and later falls in love with him.

  • In the sequel to Super Sentai vs. Power Rangers: The Liveblog, both Tori and Nanami are revealed to be bisexual.

After Tori became a Legendary Ranger, she and Nanami became friends until they grew closer and fell in love with one another.

  • David Dakota from Dakota is a bisexual furry artist.
  • In the Naruto story Vapors this is relatively common among ninja, with the norm being that most will have an same-sex relationship or two before settling down to reproduce. Confirmed or suggested examples include Aiko, Tenten, Hinata, Karin, Kakashi, Yamato, and potentially Naruto and Sasuke.
  • In Off The Line Cloud admits to being a bisexual with a preference for men when pressed by his party members.
  • Nabiki Tendo in Ranma Saotome, Chi Master mentions being bisexual, so for her Ranma is the perfect fiance: a hot guy who can turn into a hot girl. At one point, Nabiki reassures Akane of her attractiveness by telling her that if they weren't sisters, she'd absolutely sleep with Akane. Akane later realizes she's bisexual as well though she still seems to prefer men.
  • Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion has C.C. and Sayoko be openly bisexual, which certainly helps in their triad relationship with Lelouch. Milly, meanwhile, goes a step further, being pansexual.
  • In The Sanctuary Telepath it's revealed that Janine, being a telepath, is attracted to minds rather than bodies, which makes her pansexual. She has a quite weird non-relationship with her (male) best friend and later gets together with Ranna.
  • In Neon Metathesis Evangelion, the pilot corps currently consists of five people - and of them, only Touji is not bisexual (though Shinji is being merely theoretically bi, what with getting involved with Rei and Asuka). However, since none of the adult characters are confirmed as bi, it is not quite an Everyone Is Bi situation.
  • Pokémon Reset Bloodlines has this occur with a few characters, among them Zilant and a Butterfree.
  • In The Makings of Team CRME:
    • Emerald is portrayed as bisexual. In An Emerald Unearthed, she mentions that she had boyfriends and girlfriends when she lived on her own and is even seen flirting with a girl.

She is also physically attracted to Mercury despite how much he annoys her and she later sex with him.
    • Mercury, thanks to a later Retcon in The Black Hearts, is also portrayed as bisexual. He was planning on hooking up with a guy in his story and had kissed girls before.

    • Violet Kincaid from Roman's Empire falls closer to Depraved Bisexual, but her major sociopathic behaviors aren't related to her bisexuality. She just happens to be a shameless flirt with men and women.

  • In Girlfrenemies, Raven Queen is pansexual. It's brought up when Dexter asks her after hearing she's dating Apple. She's known about it for years and she isn't closeted, but she's only told three people (including Dexter) because she doesn't feel the need to tell it to everyone.
  • Suika doesn't really care which gender Ranma is in Ranma ½ and Touhou crossover Carried Off.

  • Very much averted for Ritsuko in Going Another Way The whole issue takes a longer time for Ritsuko to discover and come to terms with. Maya is very understanding and they take baby steps until Ritsuko is fully comfortable with loving and bedding another woman.

    Film — Live Action

  • It's clear from Snake's suggestive interactions with Hershe in Escape from L.A., where he comments that she still keeps "his gun strapped to [her] inner thigh", that he had some form of past sexual relationship with her while she was still presenting as a man. This isn't particularly remarked upon, although it can be inferred that his difficulty accepting her new identity might have something to do with this. At one point in the comic book series, a pair of warlords plying him for favours sends him both a male and female prostitute.
  • Valerie and Her Week of Wonders: Valerie strikes up a romance with Orlik, but hooks up with Hedvika during a rough patch between them.

  • Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga:
    • Captain Bel Thorne is a bioengineered hermaphrodite who has had male and female lovers and was always monongamous and never played anyone of any sex off of someone of another. Gender was never an issue with Bel and it (Bel prefers to go by "it" primarily for the discomfort it causes) seemed to become attracted to people based primarily on their status as fellow Fish out of Water.
    • Aral Vorkosigan is the same way; bisexual but subconsciously attracted to soldiers. He's had male lovers in the past, and been happily married for the past thirty-odd years. As his wife says, "[He] was bisexual. Now he's monogamous."
  • Liir and Elphaba from in The Wicked Years. Elphaba has a relationship with Fiyero but also has feelings for Glinda.

  • A secondary character in Red Seas Under Red Skies casually mentions in conversation that he'll "try anything once". One or two background characters are revealed as gay in a similar way. Locke is mildly surprised at this particular person's admission, but nobody seems to think it's unusual. It's unclear so far whether this is normal in their society in general or just among the thieves and pirates, who are already going against society's norms somewhat.
  • Ivy Tamwood from The Hollows.
  • In Tanya Huff's The Enchantment Emporium many of the characters, including the main one, are from a family of witches, the Gales. Women far outnumber men and with a few exceptions most relationships are within the clan to both keep their magic powers from being diluted and to keep them a secret. This results in a lot of Romantic Two Girl Friendships.
  • The vampire Henry Fitzroy in the Blood Books (also by Tanya Huff) is openly bisexual (and promiscuous, though this is mainly because he combines feeding with sex). People have a tendency to assume he's straight or gay, depending on which of his love interests they happen to know.
  • In Sing the Four Quarters (also also by Tanya Huff), the main protagonist Annice is in a long-term lesbian relationship with Stasya, but Stasya doesn't seem to have much of a problem with it after Annice turns up pregnant following a fling she had on one of her bardic sojourns.
  • Doctor Who – Expanded Universe:
    • Fitz, of the Eighth Doctor Adventures. He doesn't seem to be out to any of the other characters, but in one scene, the audience is privy to his thoughts about how much he'd like to have sex with Iris Wildthyme (a female Time Lord... or maybe just some woman with a TARDIS), or, actually, the Doctor. His first scene has him in his home era, the 1960s, idly daydreaming about life as a Radio Drama and gay marriage. Also, the Eighth Doctor, who, along rather the same lines, is stated to be bisexual in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it kind of way — Sam comments on how she's noticed him checking out men and women. He also mentions having been "more than friends" with Alan Turing (yes, the real person), gets embarrassed when he accidentally says he "loved Shakespeare" rather than "loves Shakespeare", and has an unusually close relationship with another male character. He also kisses and has implied but very obvious sex with a water nymph, and gets married to a brothel madame... you can see why the fans joke that he Really Gets Around, can't you? And the Doctor has actually kissed Fitz on the lips, on more than one occasion.
    • Sam(antha) Jones, with a blink-and-you'll-miss-it reverence to her playing kinky bedroom games with a female character in the novel Seeing I.
    • The 7th Doctor's companion Christopher Cwej from the Doctor Who New Adventures novels was revealed as bi in Damaged Goods, Russell T. Davies' only contribution to the range before relaunching the TV show in 2005.
  • Strange Angels (Crow) has Dante Valentine and Kaia Steelflower. Dante's motivation throughout the first book is to finally track down the demon that murdered the woman she loved. Later she's creeped out when kissed by another woman, but only because that other woman is the test tube baby of her former lover's genes and may have some of Danny's own genetic material. Kaia's ex-lover owns an inn she visits with her new love interest/unwanted baggage, and they kiss to greet each other; her ex-lover then teases her about how cute she finds Kaia's tagalong.
  • Karadur of Dragon's Winter.
  • In the fourth book of David Weber's Safehold series, A Mighty Fortress, Merlin Athrawes takes on a second identity to investigate matters in the Temple Lands.

Later, Merlin idly wonders if this is a case of being interested in the opposite sex or his original (female) identity being interested in other women.
  • In I, Lucifer angels (including fallen angels) are bisexual, though their natural celestial form isn't physical. They can take on human forms occassionally. Several angels are mentioned as having been close.
  • Chuck Bass in the Gossip Girl books. It's also hinted that Serena and Blair have a Friends with Benefits type thing going on.
  • Bree Miller in J. Courtney Sullivan's Commencement, although she considers her relationship with Lara to be a case of If It's You, It's Okay.
  • Star Trek Expanded Universe:
    • In the novelisation of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, parts of Kirk's "denial" that he and Spock are lovers can be read as this. In particular, he mentions that he finds his "best" gratification in women, which would indicate he has some basis for comparison...
    • In Star Trek: Cold Equations Book III: The Body Electric, after T'Ryssa Chen's unsatisfactory breakup with Taurik, she thinks "And I thought dating girls was a headache".
  • Star Wars Legends has Goran and Madrit, better known as the Gay Mandos.
  • Christopher "Kit" Marlowe in Elizabeth Bear's The Promethean Age series. Maybe William Shakespeare as well, although this may be a case of "It's okay if it's Kit Marlowe"
  • Seregil and Alec, the main characters in Lynn Flewelling's Nightrunner series are openly bisexual (even if it takes young Alec a while to get over his Dalnan prudery). This appears to be quite normal in their chosen society as well as in Seregil's homeland, although most of the other named characters are hetero. It's partly dependant on religion - Dalna is a fertility god and so his priests frown on same-sex pairings; the other gods couldn't care less.
  • In one of the early Sweep books, Morgan has a "Wiccan mind-meld" session with Sky Eventide and discovers she has feelings for her covenmate Raven. When Morgan brings it up to Hunter, Sky's cousin, he just shrugs it off and says "Sky likes who she likes." Apparently, so does Raven, because the two of them are soon dating, though it's a pretty tumultuous relationship.
  • The Dresden Files:
    • Anastasia Luccio, the tough-as-nails Warden Commander, swung both ways in her turbulent youth (before becoming firmly chaste). She also practically admits that she had a relationship with Lara Raith, of all people. Lara herself is canonically bisexual, though she falls more under a different trope.
    • Justine starts a relationship with a woman in Ghost Story, though it's more so that she and Thomas can get around his weakness to love.
    • Marcie and Andi hooked up in college, although we don't learn this until Aftermath. Andi has only dated men in the books themselves, and Marcie has gotten very little development.
  • Sarah in Tales of an Mazing Girl, if you get enough alcohol, will have relationship with other women. Until she sleeps with the Flame, and doesn't need alcohol.
  • Prior, one of the main characters in The Regeneration Trilogy. In the first book he meets the woman who will later become his fiancee. Then the second book opens with him picking up a man in a park and going home with him, and you find out that he's done this quite a lot before. Several of the other soldiers are implied to be bisexual as well, and the books talk a lot about what exactly this meant in World War I England.
  • Siuan and Moiraine (both women) of The Wheel of Time were (hinted at and later confirmed) lovers in their youth; each now has an arguably Sudden Romance with a man.
  • Tony in Impulse by Ellen Hopkins.

  • Lucy, the protagonist from Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All.
  • Stephen King:
    • In The Stand, it's casually mentioned that Dayna Jurgens is bisexual. Stu Redman is flabbergasted by this.
    • Astrid in Revival is shown to have significant love affairs with two people (not at the same time), first with protagonist Jamie and later with Jenny.
  • A Song of Ice and Fire:
    • The rumor that Oberyn "The Red Viper" Martell is bisexual has only been mentioned once in the series and it does not affect his character in any way. To him, it seems like he is only interested in sex in general, seeing how often he comes by it.
    • Oberyn's paramour seems to be bisexual, as she's aroused by the idea of the Queen in their bed. It's mentioned that they've been looking for a blond third partner for awhile.
  • Rayojini in Burying the Shadow casually asks a woman to sleep with her where she has previously only shown the reader her interest in men. It is implied that this is normal in her culture, because the woman she asks isn't surprised or uninterested herself.
  • Cira of A Brother's Price is very obviously interested in Jerin, and discusses whores - who in this world are women who are paid to have sex with other women, since men are rare - frankly with him. She mentions that she had a lover, the daughter of a whore and a crib captive, but it ended when Cira became Covered with Scars. In her world, an unmarried woman is very unlikely to have a heterosexual relationship, due to fear of STDs creating very strong social pressure against it, so it's probably not that unusual for women who aren't married to turn to other women for sexual/romantic outlets.
  • Pretty much everyone in Tales of the Branion Realm, in which if a character is not married, they almost certainly have a same-sex relationship — and can switch off, for example when they're ready to have children, or conversely are past menopause or their spouse has died.
  • Used in multiple layers in Marge Piercy's novel Woman On The Edge of Time. In an early chapter, both readers and the protagonist Connie believe the character Luciente is male. Connie asks if Luciente likes women, and Luciente replies "The most intense mating of my life was a woman named Diana [...] Mostly I've liked males". There is little reaction to this from Connie, but the trope is invoked again when Luciente is revealed to be female, and the fact that her "most intense mating" was with another woman is never questioned.
  • Island in the Sea of Time:
    • Swindapa was captured by the Iraiina during a failed attempt at avenging her wounded boyfriend, but after she's freed by Capt. Marian Alston, she becomes smitten with her. Luckily for her, Alston is a closeted lesbian who is attracted to her, so it all works out quite nicely, even if it does take a long time for the both of them to lay all their cards on the table.
    • In the second book, Kathryn Hollard, one of the up-and-coming soldiers in Nantucket's army, is caught fooling around with a local girl in Babylon, but ends up marrying King Kashtiliash.
  • Nicole "nickles" Hunsenmeier in Rubyfruit Jungle, adopted daughter of one of the main characters in Six of One.
  • August and Lilac from Of Fear and Faith both fell in love (at first sight) with members of the opposite sex but have an unabashed attraction to one of their same sex teammates (Elin for Lilac and North for August).
  • The dolls in The Dollmaker were created as companions for a man, though they seem to have more interest in one another.
  • Ausiel Montoya in Nerve Zero is the ex of the protagonist's best (male) friend, and is later nonchalantly revealed to have a female ex as well.
  • Eric Caldwell, the Knight Templar in Mr Blank, though it's unclear as to whether he was merely pretending to be bi for the sake of his contacts.
  • Mona Ramsey (and later both DeDe and Beauchamp Day) in Tales of the City.
  • In SA Swann's Emperors of the Twilight Evi Isham has slept with men before, and was unimpressed. She's not certain if it's because she doesn't like men or if it's because she always had to hide her true self. Diana Murphy knows she's a frankenstein and doesn't care, and Evi decides she doesn't care about Diana's gender either.
  • Scillara in the Malazan Book of the Fallen. It's not even hinted at until Toll the Hounds, and she gets a designated (male) love interest soon afterwards, but she seems to have enjoyed her encounter with Blend.
  • In the Kharkanas Trilogy, the prequel to the Malazan Book of the Fallen, both Sharenas Ankhadu and Finarra Stone nonchalantly think about sleeping with male and female Tiste, the only objection being that in Finarra Stone's case she would be sleeping with a subordinate either way.
  • In the Magic Ex Libris series, the main heroine Lena Greenwood doesn't care about gender. She currently has both a male and a female lover and, being supernatural, really doesn't get why humans are so hung up about gender anyway.
  • The titular Friday of the Robert A. Heinlein novel.
  • A large chunk of the cast in My Dark And Fearsome Queen, most notably Erik, Ritu and Claire.
  • Theron in Delia Sherman's The Fall of Kings. This used to be a requirement for Kingship back when there were kings.
  • Magnus Bane. Later books in The Mortal Instruments as well as The Infernal Devices and The Bane Chronicles reveal that he dated and slept with men and women. Also describes himself as 'freewheeling bisexual'. The Infernal Devices shows it at first with certain comments he makes about Will upon first meeting him and Tessa, and later makes it obvious when he is shown to have started a physical relationship with Woolsey Scott.
  • Maks in The Poster Children. "You mean I can't have both?"
  • Fever Crumb in the Mortal Engines prequels has a male love interest in the second book, and a female love interest in the third.
  • Unsurprisingly in a novel based around sexual and romantic fluidity, The Giddy Death of the Gays and the Strange Demise of Straights contains two examples: Christina and Caroline
  • Deoch, who owns a bar with his male partner in The Kingkiller Chronicle even as he flirts with and presumably beds a lot of women. He's also memorably referred to as "ambisextrous".
  • Austin Szerba, from Grasshopper Jungle. He is in love with both his girlfriend Shann Collins and his best friend Robby Brees. A major plot point is his inability to prioritize one or the other. Angst ensues to all of them.
    • Considering that Austin only shows physical attraction to girls if Robby isn't counted, this may be a case of If It's You, It's Okay.
    • Discussed near the end of the book, when Robby says that there is a word for men like him. Austin assumes he is talking about bisexual and says he isn't sure if he identifies that way. Turns out the word Robby had in mind was actually selfish.
  • Kyle from Magic University starts heteronormative enough, but he sleeps with Frost in the second book climax and by the third book he is functionally bisexual, even if he does not care too much for labels.
  • Travis, the main protagonist of The Last Rune, is bisexual. Though his sexuality is important to the plot in that he winds up in a love triangle with a man (the knight Beltan) and a woman (the assassin Vani), he ends up with Beltan, his bisexuality itself is never made a big deal of.
  • Caitlin Reid, the Awesome Aussie of the Ahriman Trilogy is this.
  • Jaume of The Dinosaur Lords both courts Melodía and has male lovers.
  • Plenty of this in the Village Tales novels. Chef Teddy Gates is pansexual (and nowadays married to ex-Premier Leaguer Edmond Huskisson); the devout Anglo-Catholic Rector, Noel Paddick, a widower, unexpectedly fell in love with Sher Mirza, the devout Muslim teacher at the Free School, and are for religious reasons an anchored Chastity Couple; the son and heir of the man who farms the Duke's "home farm" is unremarkably bi; and then Professor Farnaby ("you're a dark horse, Den"), long presumed straight even by close colleagues, casually mentioned that as a young don he was marching with Peter Tatchell and breaking up with his first boyfriend. This being modern Britain, no one blinks an eye. The aged Lord Mallerstang in fact asserts that it's only recently that people ever did care:
    "'… Certainly it was [a glass closet, in Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian days]: but the same was true of bastard children and decades-long adulteries and mistresses who were an open secret. The secrecy and the consequent social deformations were the province of the middling – the meddling – and commercial classes, you know: the upper classes and the working classes alike never paid a blind bit of attention to that sort of, ah, moral panic, and the hypocrisies it engendered.'"
  • In The Pearl and the Carnelian, Lucy's romance with Hester is one of the central plots in the book. However, Lucy is also revealed to have been at least mildly infatuated with her cousin Albert.
  • In The Stormlight Archive, Shallan is confirmed by Word of God to be bisexual. Amusingly Brandon Sanderson didn't originally intend this, but fans pointed out that there was quite a lot of implications that she had a crush on Jasnah and he went Sure, Why Not?.
  • Protagonist Teltö Phuul in Wise Phuul.
  • Jake from Warrior Cats is the mate of two she-cats, Nutmeg and Quince. He is also the father of Rusty (aka Firestar), Scourge, and several other cats. Word of Gay is that he was in love with Talltail and that he's considered his One True Love.
  • In The Girl from the Miracles District, Frey flirts with everyone who's visiting Asgard for the first time, regardless of their gender.
  • The Southern Reach Trilogy: Grace used to have a husband and has two children, but by the time of the story she is in a steady relationship with another woman.
  • The Machineries of Empire: Jedao seems to be, though his options are rather limited now that he's stuck in another person's head.
  • Bo Dickinson from Run, though only her brother and Agnes know.
  • In Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, Cal tells Simon that he's bisexual shortly after Simon's outing.
  • Therese of Dance of the Butterfly is this, though she comes off as almost asexual and definitely more interested in women when the mood moves her.
  • In Breakfast at Tiffany's, Holly Golightly casually states her bisexuality, though she's still somewhat arrogant towards lesbians.
  • In the Warcraft Expanded Universe novels, this is subtly implied with Queen Azshara and not-so-subtly implied with Lady Vashj. Though the latter could be closer to Psycho Lesbian. In The War of the Ancients trilogy, Queen Azshara used her beauty and (probably magically enhanced) charms to manipulate Xavius and Illidan both, and even fantasized about ruling the world with Sargeras as her king/consort. And when Tyrande was captured, Azshara admired her beauty and even offered her a position in her court that was hinted to be more than a servant role.
  • Anna Karenina: Countess Lidia Ivanova has a husband she's on strained terms with, and is also explicitly described as being in love with "all the new princes and princesses who married into the imperial family."
  • Call Me by Your Name: Eric Perlman has a boyfriend, but also has several sexual encounters with a neighbour girl.
  • Early on in River of Teeth, Houndstooth is established as having a type, but that type extends to both men and women. Everyone seems to know and nobody bats an eye.
  • Red Rising: Evey has a crush on Darrow, and later hooks up with Harmony in the second book.
    • Harmony had a husband whose death drove her to the rebellion, and by the second book she's dating Evey.
    • Not as noticeable since he's only shown with women in the original trilogy, but the Sequel Series has a moment where Cassius is preparing for a threesome with male and female Pinks.
    • Roque and Tactus were, if not a couple, then at the very least Friends with Benefits during the Time Skip between Red Rising and Golden Son, and Tactus later mentions sleeping with male and female pinks.
    • Victra flirts with Anything That Moves, male or female.
  • Laurie Halse Anderson's Wintergirls has an understated example in eighteen-year-old Lia, whose anorexia and self-harm have consumed her world and stopped her living a real life. On two occasions she inwardly reflects that she could see herself — or a healthier version of herself — with either a boy or a girl.
  • Parson from Patience And Sarah is attracted to Sarah's male disguise Sam and, from the way he speaks about men loving men, it's heavily implied he's attracted to men in general. He also has a wife back home.
  • Ann Leckie's The Raven Tower: Eolo casually states that he's interested in both men and women, though his preferences tend towards the latter. Also Implied with Mawat, who has courted a female character and is also assumed (incorrectly) by his friends to be sleeping with his male aide. In neither case is it given any importance beyond clarifying who is and isn't romantically interested in whom.
  • The Queen Of Ieflaria: No one sees anything odd about Esofi marrying a woman; the only question is the heir, but that's not an insurmountable obstacle.

  • In the video of "San Francisco" by Train, it is revealed in the end that the marriage that Monahan is rushing to prevent is between his ex-girlfriend and another woman.
  • In the Cheryl Ladd song "Just Another Lover Tonight", the narrator's potential boyfriend's bi. She, on the other hand, is also sowing her oats.
  • The Panic! at the Disco song "Girls/Girls/Boys" is about this. "Girls love girls and boys, and love is not a choice..."
  • The Kentucky Headhunters' "Great Acoustics" seems to indicate that the male narrator's lover is having an affair with another woman:
    Wind chimes hangin' by the door
    They don't play our song no more
    Wonder why they're hangin' there at all
    The absence of your touch at night
    Tells me somethin' just ain't right
    Are you feelin' anything at all?
    The great acoustics in this room
    They done went and told on you
    They tell me of a girl somewhere
    With ruby lips and long blonde hair

  • In the Firefly game of Cool Kids Table, Mickey Spacelust is into Caleb's connection Todd, and is able to seduce him simply by kissing his hand and looking at him intensely.
    • Tuatha from The Fallen Gods will happily flirt with guys and girls. Sometimes it's just to get what she wants, but she often has genuine attractions to any gender she comes across.
    • Yuki from Sequinox has a crush on both her classmate Harmony and the Mysterious Protector Vivaldi.
  • Boyland of The Adventure Zone has wives and husbands and loves them all.

    Professional Wrestling 
  • While Jimmy Jacobs loved Lacey and wanted to make sure their relationship was not based on lust after they slept together, he later propositioned sex to Adam Cole on twitter.

  • Hailey from Darwin's Soldiers is bisexual, even having a crush on her best friend at one point as well.
  • Dawn of a New Age: Oldport Blues:
    • Zia is a flirt who's sexually attracted to men and women, but favours men when it comes to romantic relationships. She has a crush on her Childhood Friend Ciro, but has also been flirty with female characters.
    • Ciro himself is bi, though he hasn't had much time to explore his sexuality as a result of being kept busy with his homelife. A fear of breaking the status quo has also kept him in the closet about it.
    • Daigo is in a committed relationship with his girlfriend Melissa, but is also attracted to men. And while he's a villain, he's notably not depraved.
    • Carlie is described in her character bio as being bisexual, though as a minor character it's yet to become apparent in the story itself.
  • DC Nation Original Characters Hotshot and Fauna. Hotshot is much more overt about it, while Fauna is a Covert Pervert.
  • In The Gamer's Alliance, Ax, Leon and Ronove like guys and girls. Ax is somewhat confused over this although she has admitted to herself that she used to be quite attracted to Queen Shyla (and still can't quite get the queen out of her mind), Leon ended up disowned when his father found out about it, and in Ronove's case the bisexuality foreshadowed that he was a demon because demons are bisexual by nature.
  • Diamond, a superheroine from the Global Guardians PBEM Universe, was in a long-term committed relationship with another woman (the super-strong heroine Vindicator) for nearly ten years. Within a year after her breakup with Vindicator, Diamond had entered a semi-permanent relationship with the very male Stone.
  • Crops up fairly frequently in Survival of the Fittest, the earliest being Wednesday Ryan. Notable recent examples include Orn "Dutchy" Ayers, Felicia Carmichael, Brendan Wallace, Peter Sui, and most of the more, ahem...flirty girls; it's become a running joke among the board that any girl that wants instant approval for the game must be bisexual.

    Tabletop Games 
  • In Rocket Age the Silthuri caste and Julandri Courtesans of Mars are naturally and socially bisexual. Regular Julandri are also encouraged towards a specific gender by their masters to control the future population, which implies a degree of flexibility. The game also acknowledges varying genders and sexuality in humans and how they were viewed during the 1930s.

  • Hamilton: One of Hamilton's lines in the show is 'Laurens, I like you a lot,' and he and Laurens do tend to be very touchy and act rather flirtatious towards each other in their acting. The creator Lin Manuel has confirmed that the line was a reference to the real word historical speculation that Alexander Hamilton and John Laurens might have been lovers, and has shown support for bi interpretations of the real Hamilton. So this version of Hamilton is at least implied to be bi.
  • Be More Chill: After Rich Goranski's SQUIP is deactivated Rich states "all the ladies are going to love the real Rich Goranski. And the dudes too. Oh my god I'm totally bi!" In the same scene he asks about Michael saying "is he single, I'm totally bi now."

    Video Games 
  • In a game series with as much Ho Yay as Metal Gear, it's hard to make any clear conclusions about the sexuality of any character. An exception is the marine commander Scott Dolph, who was a lover of Vamp and had at least one grown daughter. Vamp is pure Depraved Bisexual, though, as is Volgin.
  • Bully has Jimmy, who can kiss both male and female students for a health boost.
  • Endrance/Elk of the .hack series. Both Mia and Haseo become the objects of his affection.
  • Phantasy Star Portable reveals that Headmaster Nav is an equal-opportunity Dirty Old Man. He just appreciates the "human" form, male or female. He's sympathetic, one of the good guys, and like most Dirty Old Man characters doesn't go much beyond pinching and flirting.
  • Ayla from Chrono Trigger informs the party, "Me like strong person, man, woman, both like" in the DS port.
  • Mass Effect:
    • This is part of the asari hat, as the asari are a One-Gender Race who prefer to breed with other species, regardless of gender, to increase their genetic diversity. Asari squadmate Liara T'Soni can be romanced by Shepard regardless of their gender.
    • Kelly Chambers isn't just attracted to humans, but virtually any sapient beings.
    • Kaidan Alenko is a romance option for both male and female Shepard in the third game, being the only male bisexual. Kaidan is also the only love interest to be revealed to be bisexual after his introduction. He was originally only available for female Shepard in the first Mass Effect.
    • Shepard can be played this way - female Shepard tends to do so more easily, since the only Gay Option in 1 (without modding) is Liara, but with Cortez and Kaidan in 3 it's possible for a male Shepard to decide, after romancing only women in the first two games, that he'd like to romance a dude for a change.
    • Pathfinder Ryder can likewise be played as bisexual (or homo/heterosexual as well) in Mass Effect: Andromeda. Several of the romance options, namely Peebee, Vetra, Jaal, and Reyes also count as they can be romanced by a male or female Ryder alike.
  • Dragon Age:
    • Leliana from Dragon Age: Origins can fall for a male or female protagonist, and has a relationship with a woman in her past (or, at least, a woman she was in love with). She outs herself quite casually when her disposition is high enough. Likewise, Zevran is also bisexual, as well as a Chivalrous Pervert. One that comes completely out of left field is Branka, Oghren's wife.
    • In Dragon Age II the creators use the term "subjective sexuality" that basically means that a party member will exhibit interest in the player character's gender if the player character makes a move on them. The only exception is Sebastian Vael who can only be romanced by female characters.
    • Notably, if you romance Anders as male Hawke, then he mentions that he used to be in a relationship with Karl; if you're female, he never indicates being attracted to men at all. This caused some controversy when combined with his characterization in Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening as a womanizer. Fenris and Merrill are also romanceable by either gender, but showed no real signs of their sexual orientation before the opportunity to flirt with them arises. Isabela, on the other hand, will openly sleep with Anything That Moves.
    • Iron Bull and Josephine from Dragon Age: Inquisition are interested in men and women. Unlike the Dragon Age II examples above, this is exhibited regardless of whether or not the player expresses an interest in them.
  • Jade Empire has Sky, a Lovable Rogue who was once married but is a romance option for a player character of either gender, and Silk Fox, a princess with a sharp tongue who is also a romance option for both genders.
  • Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 4 all have this option for the player character (though 3 only has it for female characters). Fallout 3 has the "Black Widow" and "Lady Killer" perks, that give you a boost to the damage against and additional dialog options with (some NPCs of) the opposite sex, while New Vegas adds "Confirmed Bachelor" and "Cherchez La Femme" which does it for the same gender, and yes, you can pick both perks applicable. Probably the most prominent NPC who embodies this trope is Cass, who certainly likes guys, but will confess that when she's drunk enough she doesn't care who climbs into bed with her, male or female.
  • Garlot (Gulcasa) in Blaze Union, though this is very lightly implied in the other games he's in as well. There are two endings to Blaze where he is paired up with someone, and the distinct victors are Nessiah (in the canon ending) and Siskier. In all the other endings, he has a vast Unwanted Harem of multiple sexes to choose from.
  • Aphrodite in God of War III will openly flirt with Kratos, but she's not above having a good time with her two beautiful handmaidens.
  • BlazBlue:
  • In Quest for Glory V, if you offer an engagement ring to Rakeesh he comments that he would consider it, if he were not already married.
  • If you play the main character as female in Knights of the Old Republic, you can have romance storylines with either Carth or Juhani. Due to a bug, Juhani was this in the original release of the game, but was later patched out to make her lesbian.
  • The Elder Scrolls
    • Given the much larger proportion of women in her priesthood and the "Dibellan Arts" being her primary means of worship, one can easily draw this conclusion about the followers of Dibella, the Aedric Divine Goddess of Beauty. As Dibella says: "No matter the seed, if the shoot is nurtured with love, will not the flower be beautiful?"
    • Mara, the other Love Goddess of the Aedric Divines (with a focus on commitment, family, fertility, and matrimony compared to Dibella's focus on the carnal and sexual aspects of love), does not place any restrictions on marriage within the religion of the Nine Divines, thus all may marry, irrespective of gender and race, and unite their souls in the holy union.
    • The series in general trends more toward Everyone Is Bi. In the games with NPC Disposition and persuasion options, responses to successful uses of the "Admire" option frequently appear to be responses to pick-up lines and come-ons, regardless of the character's gender. (Though there may be an element of Even the Guys Want Him/Even the Girls Want Her at play.) In Skyrim, which adds marriage to the series, every marriageable character can be married by the Player Character, once again regardless of gender. While Fantastic Racism is still a major problem, it seems that Tamriel is very open and progressive in terms of sexual orientation.
  • In World of Warcraft, during a quest called The Day that Deathwing Came: What Really Happened, a male orc named Martek the Exiled must choose a companion from a group of admirers/former lovers - one of whom is a male blood elf. Also, male pandaren Tenwu of the Red Smoke and Ren Firetongue will flirt heavily with you, regardless of your character's gender. Drek'Thar in the Warlords of Draenor expansion will similarly flirt with a player character of either gender.
  • An NPC named Andy first appeared in Pokémon Black and White as a Ferris Wheel partner for the male player character (albeit censored in translation). In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, he's a Ferris Wheel partner for the female player character, and even mentions his great romance from two years prior.
  • Princess Penny of Dokapon Kingdom doesn't seem to mind which gender the player who wins is. Her father, on the other hand, doesn't want to have two girls married in public.
  • In Persona 2, protagonist Tatsuya Suou gets his choice of Love Interest in his party members Lisa Silverman and Maya Amano...and Jun Kurosu, his closest childhood friend, whom he shares a metric ton of Homoerotic Subtext with. The game's character designer even considers them his choice of couple, although all of the options are treated as being equally valid in-game. note 
  • Persona 3 and Persona 4's protagonists also have the option to answer that "Gender doesn't matter as long as there's love", in Persona Q.
  • In Saints Row IV, nearly every human member of the cast can be romanced whether the Boss is male or female. Although Pierce will say he doesn't normally swing that way, also whether the Boss is male of female. Outside of that, Matt Miller has a poorly-concealed crush on Nyteblade as well as Asha and Kinzie.
  • Borderlands 2:
    • Axton the Commando. When being revived (or doing the reviving) he was only supposed to flirt with Maya, but some code got misplaced, and now he flirts with whoever he's reviving/being revived by. By the time the Dragon's Keep DLC was released, Gearbox Software (the makers of the game) decided to Throw It In!, canonizing his bisexuality. When asked on what he's going to spend his share of the treasure on, he replies "Guns and ladies...and sometimes dudes."
    • Moxxi seems to have slept with every other man or woman in Pandora, with a lot of people asking the player if she's ever talked about them. This ranges from bandits such as Mr. Shank to Pirate Girl Captain Scarlet and even at one point Handsome Jack.
    • Mister Torgue High Five Flexington, Testosterone Poisoning incarnate, is also bi according to Word of God and a few lines in the Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep expansion DLC.
  • Both Isabella and Rakesh are open to dating either Max or Anne in Roommates. The former borders on Anything That Moves, while the latter finds beauty in everything.
  • In The Elder Scrolls Online Jakarn, the Lovable Rogue you recruit for Kaleen, is a notorious womanizer, but refers to the player character as "Good Looking" regardless of gender, and when you first encounter him he states "If I found a handsome guy trapped in a cell, I'd free him." He continues to flirt with you throughout your encounters and in one quest, he refers to a vision of an insane male cultist as "Well Dressed".
  • Harvest Moon:
    • Michelle in Harvest Moon: A New Beginning is implied to be this. If you show her the blue feather when playing as a girl, she implies that she's been proposed to numerous times by both men and women, and doesn't want a relationship getting in the way of her friendship with you. Sadly, there's no way to actually romance her when playing as a girl—unless you decide to crossdress a male character.
    • The Special Bachelorettes from Harvest Moon DS can be wooed by Pete, but also become "best friends" with the female MCs in the Japanese version of Cute. The "best friend" system is near-identical to marriage, complete with being blessed with a child.
  • In Pillars of Eternity, this is possible for the Watcher, and seems to be the case for Walking Spoiler Iovara — she has a Multiple-Choice Past shaped by player decisions in past life visions, but lovers of either gender are a possibility.
  • Semryu in Way Walkers University is Oblivious to Love if your PC tries to pursue him at first, but if you're persistent, he will gently agree to be the PC's boyfriend, with males and females having an equal chance of success
  • Super Mario Bros.: While Luigi is linked mainly with Daisy and, more so nowadays, Rosalina, as well as Princess Éclair in an off-screen adventure, Luigi's interactions with Prince Peasley in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga are... questionable to say the least. And in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, he cheers the Bedsmith on in his attempts to chase Prince Dreambert.
  • Fire Emblem Fates:
    • Fates has Niles on the Nohr side and Rhajat on the Hoshido side. Both can marry the Avatar no matter his/her gender.
    • Corrin him/herself is bi, since they can marry Niles and Rhajat regardless of which gender the player makes them.
    • The Nohr side also has Soleil; she prefers women, is fairly popular with them and has quite a bit of Les Yay with her friend Ophelia, though she can only S-Support with men.
    • While Princess Camilla can only S-Support with guys, she is said to admire physical strength in women, has an Amazon Brigade with her favorite Action Girls Beruka and Selena the later of whom is the aforementioned Severa under an alias, and her Golden Path interactions with Princess Hinoka can very easily be seen as flirty.
  • Life Is Strange:
    • Max Caulfield in the first game is interested in both men and women. Her best friend and eventual Love Interest Chloe Price is more Ambiguously Bi, as there are some details indicating she might be interested in men, but she only ever expresses attraction to women during the game.
    • Chloe's former best friend, Rachel Amber, is confirmed in the prequel Before the Storm to have reciprocated Chloe's attraction to her, in addition to her previously established relationships with men.
    • Sean Diaz, the main character of the sequel Life Is Strange 2, is confirmed to be bi in Episode 3. Not only is he asked about his sexual preference (with his options ranging from 'not interested right now', 'more into girls', and 'into guys and girls equally'), but he can engage in a romance with either Cassidy or Finn. Even in previous episodes, his discussions about his love life with his father and grandmother have him refer to his potential partner in gender-neutral terms.
  • Kitty from Psychonauts is implied to have a relationship with her best friend Franke, who is implied to be lesbian in an official Friendster-inspired website. Kitty's profile says she is interested in both men and women.
  • Minor character Sarin from Summon Night Swordscraft Story coos over the female protagonist but is also in love with Bryon.
  • In RuneScape, the devs confirmed that Zanik the goblin is attracted to the player character regardless of their gender. Or the fact that they're human, apparently.
    • At the Legends' Guild, a Metaphorgotten conversation about Sir Owen's "guardian Icyene" results in this exchange Note :
      Ariane: Not all Icyene are female, Ozan.
      Ozan: Okay, was HE hot?
  • Undertale:
    • The Fallen Child can flirt with characters of either gender, and their own gender is deliberately ambiguous.
    • Alphys is said to have a crush on King Asgore (Mettaton claims she modified him into a combat droid to impress Asgore), and she definitely has a thing for Undyne, the fish-woman captain of the Royal Guard. The player even has to encourage Alphys to confess her love to Undyne on the route to the Golden Ending.
  • Legault from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade will hit on Heath, Matthew, and Isadora in their supports. Additionally, he mentions another woman he was close to in his supports with Matthew, and his comments towards Lloyd in the final chapter could be interpreted as flirty, too.
  • Silver in the (in)famous Translation Train Wreck Pokémon Vietnamese Crystal will fall in love with the player character whether they're male or female.
  • Morgana, the Gay Option from Guenevere, is bisexual, although you won't discover it unless you pursue a relationship with her.
    • Guenevere herself can also be played this way, regardless of which (if any) romances you initiate.
    • Lancelot has also been confirmed as bisexual.
  • Darkest Dungeon has a couple of examples:
    • One of the Grave Robber's campfire skills has her tell a target that they're "well-proportioned" to relieve stress, no matter what sex said target is.
    • The Siren boss will enthrall your heroes to turn them to her side by appearing as a Cute Monster Girl, and isn't exactly picky about their gender either.
  • Valkyria Chronicles: Weaponized by the Scout Ted. He has both the skill "Fancies Men" and "Fancies Women", the former granting him bonuses when he is around the same sex and the latter when he is around the opposite.
  • In Spelunky, the player can choose to make the Damsel in Distress into a Distressed Dude (or a dog or sloth) who kisses your character should they be rescued between floors. They can also choose to have it be random on each floor, invoking this trope.
  • Mae from Night in the Woods is openly bisexual (or pansexual), stating at one point that she doesn't care about the gender of her partner, so long as they can wrestle.
  • Verse from Tyranny. She's had casual sexual relationships with both men and women, and in Bastard's Wound, can have a fling with the Fatebinder. Verse may be a ruthless Blood Knight in most respects, but her enjoyment of sex and the genuine fondness with which she speaks of some of her lovers are humanizing elements.

    Visual Novels 
  • Fate/stay night and its many spinoffs have QUITE a few examples. We might be here for a while.
    • In the original visual novel:
      • Saber lived as a man and married a woman in life. In the uncensored Fate route she becomes intimate with both Rin and Shirou, and one ending has Saber, Rin, and Shirou live together as mutual lovers.
      • Rin casually comes out as bisexual during her intimacy with Saber, and the aforementioned threesome ending is commonly referred to as Rin's harem, not Shirou's.
      Rin: Huh, I didn't know I swung this way.
    • Fate/hollow ataraxia:
      Caren: I wouldn't have expected any less of you, King of Heroes. As long as it's blonde and has the body of a child, anything's fine right. But, that's a boy you know?
      Gilgamesh: Mrph. Fool, don't underestimate me peon! As long as it's cute, it's A-O-K. The true hero is not concerned with the likes of male and female!
    • Fate/Zero:
      • This prequel has another bisexual Rider, which is hardly surprising considering his identity. Word of God claims that if Kayneth and his fiancee Sola-Ui had summoned him as planned, Rider would have attempted to form relations with both of them at once.
      • Caster is also confirmed to be bisexual, but his case is a different trope altogether: he mentions that he likes pretty looking boys (like Ryuunosuke) and tomboyish girls (like Joan of Arc).
    • Fate/EXTRA:
      • If you max out her Affection Points, Playable Caster falls in love with the protagonist regardless of their gender. Though if the protagonist is a girl, Caster will note that she'd be at a bit more ease if the protagonist was a man and that she could always use her magic to make things better.
      • Playable Saber (who also falls in love with the protagonist during the course of the game), on the other hand, openly states that gender doesn't matter to her when it comes to love, though she does mention that age didn't either.
    • Fate/Apocrypha:
      • Side materials confirm that Astolfo doesn't care about gender differences as long as he likes someone personally.
      • Achilles' history is largely accurate that he befriends anyone and still had a close relationship with Patroclus. All those doesn't prevent him from commenting on Penthesilea's beauty and in the Great Holy Grail War, hits on his fellow Greek Servant Atalanta.
    • Fate/Grand Order:
      • If you talk to the Assassin Servant Mata Hari in My Room, one of her lines will be her stating that she "love[s] all kinds of humans, both men and women".
      • Likewise in My Room, Fergus mac Róich tells the player that if they have any trouble with the opposite sex, he will gladly help out as he has no problems with either gender. Eventually he falls in love with the protagonist, but does not expect him/her to return his feelings and is quite content with not pursuing a relationship with him/her.
      • Gameplay-wise, there is a hidden Servant trait known as "Brynhildr's Beloved", which determines which of the Servants the character will fall for note . The list includes a large variety of male Servants... and Ushiwakamaru, Okita Alter, and Mysterious Heroine XX. Also notable is that the fake Brynhildr from the Da Vinci event calls Jeanne Alter "Onee-sama" (a staple in the Yuri genre) and lusts for her.
      • Jeanne Alter herself, whose wish is to lead a harem of edgy pretty boys, does not seem to mind the attention she gets from Brynhildr, including that one very stimulating massage session.
      • Anne Bonny and Mary Read are basically a couple, but their character bio mentions them having male lovers and the game also indicates them being open to threesomes.
      • The alternate timeline version of Miyamoto Musashi comments on the beauty of certain men and women, and later makes it very clear by complaining in the New Year's event that she got kicked out of the hot springs for being a pervert around both men and women.
  • Hatoful Boyfriend's Sakazaki Yuuya is either bisexual-favoring-women or relaxed enough about his sexuality to joke about sometimes falling for men. Either explanation would fit him.
    "I'm always straight, in love... well, most of the time."
  • Kurugaya of Little Busters!. While nobody ever thinks to put a name to it or seems all that concerned, she flirts with girls or comments on their cuteness very often, and tells Riki at one point that she couldn't share a room with Kud because she wouldn't be able to hold herself back; Riki takes her at her word immediately. Yet she also flirts with and later falls for Riki. Given one of her earliest lines is 'I like cute things, you see,' and given her targets of choice, she seems to just like cuteness regardless of gender. Kurugaya is heavily implied to be asexual. The reason why she comes off as bisexual is because attraction to either gender is equally fake to her.
  • In Umineko: When They Cry, Sayo Yasuda is this, being in love with Battler, George (as Shannon) and Jessica (as Kanon). At one point they state that they're willing to fall in love with anyone who shows them kindness regardless of gender.
  • School Days: During the Harem Ending of the game, Kotonoha gives Sekai a rather tender kiss after the Rooftop Sex scene between them and Makoto.
  • Teruteru Hanamura from Super Danganronpa 2 is quite obsessed with the girls, but during the Beach Episode he offers to apply suntan lotion to everyone - only to get Nekomaru, a very large and muscular man, to accept. He initially hesitates, but then says "Well, my tastes are quite open!" and does it anyway. Nekomaru even mentions the strong sexual pulse he's feeling from Teruteru.
    • The Ultimate Musician, Ibuki Mioda, clearly has a taste for men, but she is shown to really appreciate females too.
    • The Ultimate Nurse, Mikan Tsumiki is a dateable character in the Dangan Island mode, but in the third trial she reveals that she is in love with Junko Enoshima.
    • The Ultimate Lucky Student, Nagito Komaeda, is known to once have loved/hated Junko, but in Dangan Island and in his Free Time Events, he might be actually making an Aborted Declaration of Love to the main character. Most fans see him as either bisexual or pansexual due to this.
    • Junko Enoshima is indicated to have seduced both Mikan and Nagito into joining her Nebulous Evil Organization, making all three of them Depraved Bisexuals as well.
    • Following in, New Danganronpa V 3 has the true protagonist Shuichi Saihara. At Kaito's 4th FTE, Shuichi will briefly start talking of his friend in a certain manner, before harshly stopping himself as his comment drive further and further away from any platonic connotation. There are also the Love Hotel scenes, unlockable by getting the item "Key of Love", which he and another student from any gender can spend the night together at the Love Hotel Kumasutra, many events with both genders end with Did They or Didn't They? and others outright confirm that he had sex with the other student, both male or female. Although Korekiyo and Angie's are more of a case of Questionable Consent, but Shuchi seemed interested in them.
  • The protagonist of the indie furry visual novel Blackgate is bisexual, though seems to prefer men. The majority of the game's Love Interests are male, but there is a Straight Option, a minotauress named Helle, and the protagonist has no qualms about being interested in her.
  • Yukari from Liar Liar kills her ex-boyfriend in the first game for dumping her for her sister. In the good end, Miho confesses to her and in the sequel they are a couple. She however also kills Miho for killing her sister.
  • The MC from Mystic Messenger if the player chooses to pursue Jaehee
  • Shall We Date?: Ninja Shadow:
    • Ukyo pretty much spells that he's bisexual when he tells the group that he'd love "Kaname"/Saori aka the Player Character no matter the gender right before he explains the details of a risky Batman Gambit he brewed against the Big Bad.
    • Yuzuki uses similar terms when he declares his love to the bifauxnen Saori. It's especially noticeable in his case since he gave her an Aborted Declaration of Love before knowing that she was a girl and his big brother mentors approve of him and the MC before they find out too, specifically saying that there's nothing wrong with two guys in love.
    • Makoto is also implied to be bi, since in his Epilogue deliberately makes a Clingy Jealous Girl believe that "Kaname" is his boyfriend and when Saori points it out, his reaction is basically a "who cares...?". Plus Ukyo pretty much uses this trope to describe him at some point.
  • The protagonists of all of the titles available through Voltage Entertainment USA's Lovestruck app are canonically bisexual. In addition to having at least one female love interest per title, the protagonist's preferences are usually given a nod sooner or later in dialogue on the routes of male love interests.
    • On Hades's route of Astoria: Fate's Kiss, the protagonist indicates that she'd welcome romantic overtures from Persephone if she weren't already nursing a fierce attraction to Persephone's uncle.
    • On Orion's route of Starship Promise, the protagonist attempts to deflect questions about her growing feelings for Orion by protesting "Maybe I don't even like men!" She then backpedals and admits that she does, "but only half the time."
  • Doki Doki Literature Club! has Monika, who casually mentions that even if the game's actual player is a girl, she would still be in love with them.

  • Marc and Jesse Fans!. Alisin and probably Slake as well, with the caveat that Alisin was nastier in her younger days and Slake has fallen in with some bad crowds.
  • Check, Please! has Jack Zimmermann, though it's previously implied, it's confirmed in year 3 he has dated both men and women before starting a relationship with Bitty.
  • City of Trees: When Amir teases Jasper about his dry spell, he casually remarks on Jasper's past partners, mentioning men and women.
  • Fox from Friendly Hostility.
  • Rabbit from Skins. He flirts with both Jordan, his female Captain and is also in love with Tyr, a male werewolf. Heavily implied that he's into threesomes with girls and guys.
  • Cecilia van Peck from Nukees.
  • Dora Bianchi from Questionable Content is by no means in the closet and has very loudly and with a great deal of Squee! checked out girls she likes, and was in a committed, monogamous relationship with a man for months. One of the Fanon's great debates was how long it would be before Tai made a move (not that long, as it turned out).
  • Shelly from Wapsi Square.
  • From the two Umlaut House series, Jake, Amanda, Pierce, Alice, Jake, and Pierce. Volair and Dr. Sisyphus... not so much.
  • Well over half of the cast of Ménage à 3 are bisexual to varying degrees. Matt and Zii are perhaps the most obvious examples from among the major characters, but there are plenty more; it eventually became a fannish in-joke and is lampshaded in the comic at least twice. See the comic’s own page for the full long list. This tendency carries over to the comic's first spin-off, Sticky Dilly Buns, and is not entirely lost in the second, Sandra on the Rocks.
  • Most of the main characters of Skewed Reality.
  • Arthur, King of Time and Space:
  • Nay and Charlie from Khaos Komix.
  • T-Bob, Kim, Vanessa, and Nancy from Something*Positive; even Monette's grown out of her Anything That Moves phase. Vanessa mentions how much she loves strip clubs after she started dating Davan with basically no reaction, presumably having mentioned it off scene.
  • Angela and Heather from Punch an' Pie, the former having also appeared in Queen of Wands. Angela came out to Heather by referring to an ex as "he", and Heather's reaction was roughly, "Hey, that's cool, I wish it were easier to do that." Heather herself jokingly strings along a guy who asks if she has a man at home by saying that she has a girl at home. He apologizes for not realizing she was a lesbian, and she corrects him by cheerfully saying that she's "bi... and taken."
  • Chelsea and Corrine "Melpomene" Chattan from Clan of the Cats and Melpomene.
  • Zoe and Nina from Venus Envy. Nina replies to Zoe's admission (forced out of her by Lisa) with "Really? Me too."
  • In The Order of the Stick, Haley Starshine has her Latent Bisexuality make an appearance during a Talking to Themself scene and confesses in Cypher Language to kissing a girl "more than once". Once she becomes more secure about her relationship with Nice Guy Elan and decides that Keeping Secrets Sucks, she opens up more about her taste in women.
  • Penny and Aggie:
    • Lisa, long suspected within the fandom, her bisexuality (after a fashion) comes up during an argument with her best friend Aggie after, due to a misunderstanding, Lisa tries to interest her in casual making out:
      Aggie: You could have given me some warning. Told me you were bi.
      Lisa: I'm not! Usually. I'm Whatev, you know? Screw labels.
    • Penny and Aggie themselves go this route eventually.
  • Jamie in Girls with Slingshots is actually bi-romantic instead of bisexual, since she likes girls but doesn't like sex with girls.
  • Sam of The Space Between has apparently had sex with another girl at least once while drunk.
  • Gin of Gai Gin regularly ogles the lesbian couple with whom she is friends, but is in a happily monogamous relationship with her boyfriend Pyon (though she's a Yaoi Fangirl to the point that she wished resident Jerkass Kitsunefoxy wasn't lying when she tried to spread rumours that Pyon was secretly gay).
  • Jim and Lorne from Skin Deep, although it's unclear if it's a case of Bi The Way or If It's You, It's Okay, as their other mentioned romantic interests have been female.
  • Kelli from World of Fizz has been dating Dawn since one of the earliest arcs and has erotic dreams about Tim.
  • Jillian in Erfworld is in love with both Ansom and Wanda, which causes no small amount of difficulty since they're on opposite sides. Wanda isn't above using sex to distract her (male) boss, but Jillian is the only person she's shown anything resembling romantic interest in. Though in this world sex has absolutely nothing to do with reproduction, so it might not matter.
  • In Heartcore, most demons are bisexual to some extent. Volaster is shown to have affectionate feelings for another male demon, and when Ame first meets Ryo, she mistakenly thinks the latter is propositioning her and is more than willing to go along with it.
  • Lenny from Our Little Adventure was revealed to be interested in men at some point, but went back to women because he found men too teasing. This might be Played for Laughs as a throwaway joke though.
  • Kevin from Overlord Academy.
  • Bittersweet Candy Bowl, David adores Abbey according to the chart. And this or this makes it seem that David likes touching Abbey while having fun. Plus, Jessica, who has shown interest in Lucy.
  • Wright as Rayne's main character, Alex Rayne; according to one comment he prefers men.
  • Cho, Mindi, Dark and Heyoka from Kagerou are all confirmed bisexual by Word of God, but it hasn't really come up in story. Kano, meanwhile, is just "completely fucking confused" no doubt partly cause by the multiple people running around in his head, including the aforementioned Dark.
  • Blue from Shinigami Death Punch hits on men and women indiscriminately, not that anybody seems to pay him much mind at this point.
  • Eerie Cuties: Brooke has conflicted feelings toward Layla. While the two of them are friends, they're not too fond of each other. Yet, Brooke secretly harbors unrequited feelings for her, since knows Layla is straight. At the same time, she's admitted having an attraction to Layla's boyfriend, Kade, and has dated Ace several times on and off.
  • Anais from Curvy is an unashamed Yaoi Fangirl, and has gotten busy with men and women.
  • Iri, one of the main protagonists of Wayfarers Moon, though her preference is a bit more complicated due to the high fantasy setting: Word of God is that she's only interested in female humans, but elves of either gender seem to appeal equally to her (her only canonically established lovers to date are a human female and a male elf).
  • Niels has Niels, Peter, and Duncan, with Billy leaning strongly towards lesbian but having some interest in guys and the confirmation that Agent 300 does in fact like guys, even though he prefers the ladies. Duncan's wife Natalie, although somewhat biromatic, has been confirmed to be firmly in the straight camp. Duncan, although currently out, used to be massively closeted, and is still a little uncomfortable about showing anyone but Niels and Natalie that he likes guys.
  • Sparrow and Naomi, in Dykes to Watch Out For. Sparrow at one point described herself as a "bisexual lesbian" which raises a few eyebrows. Although given that Stuart is the only man she's been shown to date, it may be more of an If It's You, It's Okay situation.
  • Homestuck: All of the trolls aside from Kanaya, as Alternian society is strongly binormative and their species reproduces like social insects.
    • While Jake seems more interested in girls, he does date another boy briefly (and their breakup seems to have been more to do with personality issues than Incompatible Orientation).
    • More recently, Dave (who's been extensively ship teased throughout the series) has gone from dating a girl Terezi in the original timeline to dating a boy Karkat in the current one. His conversations with John and Dirk push the level of certainty on this development out of Ambiguously Bi and into this trope instead.
  • Gunnerkrigg Court: Kat was pretty into Alistair, and after a long arc full of Gayngst, also finally seems pretty cool with going out with Paz. As of Chapter 45: Thread, they're officially "not just friends".
    • This also applies to Paz as we see that the reason she even starts to develop feelings for Kat is because Kat comforted her after Paz becomes the Dogged nice Guy for Matt.
  • Applies to both Harmony and Marlene of Jet Dream after their sex changes, but not the other T-Girls. Cookie is more Anything That Moves, while Petite becomes a Good Bad Girl who's only interested in men.
  • Most of the cast of Shortpacked! have been involved with or attracted to men and women.
    Amber: I can't believe I'm the only straight person I know.
    Ethan: I wish you'd stop shoving your lifestyle into our faces.
  • Dumbing of Age:
    • Billie fawns over and attempts to make out with Sal while drunk, only days after Walky had joked about the possibility. Her own confusion over her apparent attraction to Ruth even after attempting to report her for bullying and basically sexually harassing her eventually leads to, after reconciling, Ruth and Billie having a go at a relationship.
    • Robin is attracted to Leslie in this canon too, despite being a Republican Congresswoman running on a "family values" platform.
    • Danny, which even he was not aware of until this strip. When he talks to Dorothy about how confused he is, he briefly refuses to believe bisexuality is a thing.
  • Issac of Namir Deiter mentions having dated men in exactly one panel (while talking to Blue's gay boss), and wasn't been brought up in the comic again, despite the obvious setup.
  • Ellen of El Goonish Shive was bisexual, but has since identified as lesbian, and later still, discovered the term "bisexual homoromantic". In general, changing straight people's sex (quite common in this webcomic) wreaks havoc on their sexuality.
    • Ashley crushes pretty hard on Elliot even before she finds out that he occasionally turns into a girl. When she does accidentally find out, she's more attracted to him than ever. When asked, she admits she probably counts as bisexual, but doesn't actually identify as such because she dislikes labels.
  • In When She Was Bad, Tabitha casually reveals to Gail that she's dated boys and girls in the past.
  • Nikki Danton of The Scumthorpe Files has been confirmed bisexual by Word of Gay. Since she's a preteen right now, though, she's only had one crush, on a boy.
  • Heroes of Thantopolis Helene's character page lists her as Bisexual
  • Commander Badass of Manly Guys Doing Manly Things casually mentions that he's dated men in his past (later revealed to include the Berserker Cyborg Tank), much to Mad Max's shock. Shock turning to panic when it becomes apparent that Everyone Is Bi at the barbecue except him note .
    Iron Bull: Anyone else surprised to hear that come out of someone dressed that much like a Rob Halford body double?
  • Korean Slice of Life webcomic Fluttering Feelings has its two main heroines who, despite slowly falling in love with each other, have only dated men in the past.
  • The oneshot Bridesmaid is about a woman named Fleur who has been in love with her friend Elle since childhood. After her wedding Elle reveals she's been in love with Fleur for a while but considered their love impossible. They kiss however Elle tells Fleur needs to find someone else. The manga ends on a bittersweet note as Fleur's love is requited however Elle is a married woman and they cannot be together.
  • Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal has a lot of strips about couples having various (usually hilarious) relationship problems and generally consists of randomly picked combinations of men and women. Or aliens. Or robots.
  • The web-only continuation of My Cage reveals that Ashley is bi in a 2016 storyline. She explains she never mentioned it before because she and Norm were just work buddies, but now that they're outside the conformist corporate world, she's free to be herself. The not-so-hidden-Reality Subtext is hammered home by a final panel where the King of Comics (who controlled the strip in its newspaper syndicate days) concedes his crown to Webra, Queen of Webcomics.
  • The famous Gentleman Adventurer Henry Barber of Widdershins casually flirts with a spirit of Lust impersonating a young nobleman (and is taken aback at being out-flirted) and Heinrich Wolfe, and is Happily Married to his wife Isabelle. No one ever makes an issue of it.
  • Fara and Ky(lie) in Rain. Averted with Emily, who only shares this with close friends, and even then is not entirely comfortable talking about it.
  • Barb and Beth in 21st Century Fox are revealed to be bisexual in an almost hidden panel of a comic depicting their honeymoon with husband Cecil. Later confirmed by Word of God.
  • In The Hues, both Andy and Lauren identify as such, though the latter claims she's "not big on labels." In fact of the group of Magical Girls, so far only Salime is confirmed to be straight (Sami is asexual, Hannah is a lesbian, and Audrey hasn't been identified either way).
  • Siobhan Pattinson in the Maddie series and Outsiders. In Maddie On The Island Hue, Siobhan's bisexuality is a major part of her emotional fragility and she keeps it very much a secret. It is only after the intervention of her friend Maddie, who found Siobhan out, that she becomes gradually more open; though the subsequent series demonstrate she is still troubled by how her sexuality could affect her future.
  • The title character of Apricot Cookie(s)! generally only has blatant sexual attraction to female characters, although according to chapter 4 she does feel attracted to boys.
  • #Blessed: Joanna doesn't really consider gender an important part of attraction, which is good since half the gods she is expected to date are female.

    Web Original 
  • The Whateley Universe has a few of them, like Chaka, Belphoebe, and Fey. Sara skirts the line, and is more clearly lesbian.
  • Implied by Word of God: Raimi Matthews from Broken Saints. While there is no reference to it in the actual story, writer Brooke Burgess (apart from constantly lampshading the Raimi/Oran Ho Yay) has something interesting to say in the commentary track to Chapter 18, Act 1. When Raimi is getting a tarot card reading from Cielle, The Magician card is involved. Brooke Burgess lists "ambiguous sexuality" as one of the traits Raimi shares with The Magician, saying it's something happening with a lot of young men these days, and he wanted that expressed in Raimi. Of course, that didn't really work, as the only hint that Raimi is anything other than straight is aforementioned Ho Yay.
  • Nikolai from Sapphire kills two birds with one stone when he tells Alec that both he and Boris were bisexual for one another.
  • Apollo in Thalia's Musings. His relationships with men were no more or less dysfunctional than the ones he's had with women.
  • Quite a few characters from That Guy with the Glasses, the ones that aren't Depraved Bisexuals, anyway:
    • The Nostalgia Chick calls herself only "ostensibly straight", is glad to nearly kiss MarzGurl by eating a cookie with her, and flirts back with Dr. Tease.
    • The Nostalgia Critic went to prom (or at least tried) with a guy, is a Sissy Villain, never said what gender his stalker was, and has a lot of crushes on men.
    • Benny the assassin was confirmed by Malcolm to be into Critic, and he threatens him with his gun to let him look at naked women in Playboy.
    • Benzaie, if the jokes about him wanting to touch some guys weren't a giveaway, is this both in and out of character.
    • Iron Liz, Nella and Holly (the head of the site) are also bisexual, as is Jillian of Team Snob.
    • On top of him going straight to seductive Puppy-Dog Eyes with Tacoma, cuddling him when he's sick and nearly swooning with glee when he realizes Carl actually cares, Donnie DuPre in Demo Reel had a whole episode dedicated to him having extremely unsubtle affair-subtext-romances with two men. We even got him asking for Slash Fic and sucking on Pocky as bonuses!
  • Two-thirds of the crew in Guts and Sass: An Anti-Epic are bi, and most of the men come from cultures where no one bats an eye. There is minimal distinction between shades of sexual preference and no analogue to modern sexual identification.
  • Regent/Alec from Worm mentions having sex with boys and girls in Interlude 10 (the nonbonus one).
  • Lightning Dust's Dr. James Melfton is bi according to the author.
  • End Times's Trace Roth outed herself to the audience while listing actors that she'd bang—her final offer is Amanda Tapping.
    Harry: I don't swing that way.
    Trace: Well, I don't discriminate.
  • The Yahoo! Screen web series Other Space, which featured only heterosexual pairings until then, reveals in "First Contact" that Tina and Karen had hooked up once in Space Academy. While Karen considers the encounter a drunken mistake, Tina reveals she's hurt that Karen didn't reciprocate.
    • Then, in the next episode, Karen teases her brother, who otherwise only has eyes for Tina, that the alien being he's been enthusiastically pursuing is his "boyfriend", causing him to defensively retort that "it's been years since [he'd] had a boyfriend."
  • Hitoshi from Neko Sugar Girls flirts with Koneko and Raku but falls for his Camp Gay kidnapper. Hitoshi rejects Raku because he's dating Bokutachi. This causes Raku's Death by Despair.
  • Valley Girl Sakura from Tsuki Desu originally fell for a boy however he dumped her after she made him wear a dress. She eventually falls for Tsuki than promptly appears to pull a heroic sacrifice, though she survives.
  • The Most Popular Girls in School: Than, Jenna Dapananian, Jenna Darabond, and Shay van Buren.
  • Grandmaster in Enter The Farside has dated men and women. It never works out for him. They either think he doesn't have enough time or he doesn't talk enough, and when he does, it's just about work. It doesn't help that he's a bit of a workaholic.
  • Malê Rising has the polyamorous Laila Abacar, A Muslim woman who eventually marries to both a husband and wife. The whole relationship is weaved through Islamic concepts of marriage (that a husband can have up to four wives) to evade public scrutiny, though it sometimes fails due to her position.
  • Vax'ildan of Critical Role has, so far, kissed Keyleth, Gilmore, and Percy (though the last one was Played for Laughs). And while he's confessed his love for Keyleth, he's also stated in no uncertain terms that the attraction between him and Gilmore was not one-sided. Later confirmed by Liam O'Brien during the fourth Q&A session.
    • Mollymauk Tealeaf of the Mighty Nein is bisexual, and is also played by the openly bisexual Taliesin Jaffe.
  • The Veronica Exclusive's main character, Veronica Sawyer, is in a relationship with the female J.D., but alludes to having had a boyfriend in the past.
  • The host of The Music Video Show has possibly become this. Despite attraction to women, what do you call a person who is attracted to Taylor Swift's male backup dancers and has a Terry Crews cardboard cutout to kiss on standby?
    • Confirmed in Episode 110 where he is attracted to both the male and female dancers, though he leans a little more towards one.
    "Could you give me 15 minutes, a washroom and two of your male dancers?" He says this with a pillow between his legs and shirtless.
  • In the Queer Duck episode "Santa Claus is Coming Out", Queer Duck speculates that Santa Claus is gay and tells his friends why he thinks that in a musical number.

  • Out With Dad: In the first episode of Vanessa's Story, she admits that she's not straight. Previously, she admitted to Kenny that she had feelings for Rose. She later explicitly identifies herself as being bisexual, although she's also not very comfortable with any label.

    Western Animation 
  • Family Guy:
    • Lois Griffin makes offhand references to past relationships with women that only go on as long as the joke demands and then are promptly forgotten by everyone else as soon as the joke is done. Though she is normally shown lusting openly after men, she quietly works in homosexual behaviour whenever she thinks she can get away with it. In the pilot episode for The Cleveland Show, Cleveland asks Lois and Bonnie to make out, as his last wish before leaving, and both seem to really enjoy it.
    • In the episode where Peter starts hanging out with Bill Clinton the two hit it off right away, but Peter spends so much time with the guy that he ends up damaging his relationship with Lois. By the end of the episode both of them have been physically seduced by Clinton. The last scene? A shot of Peter laying next to Clinton in bed. It should also be noted that Peter had a very shocked look on his face while Clinton had a very satisfied look on his face. Peter then states: "Boy, you are good. You are really good."
    • One episode had a retelling of the fairy tale Cinderella, with Lois as the titular character and Peter as the prince. Peter visits the various households of the kingdom trying to find the woman who fits the glass slipper, declaring, "Whoever fits in this slipper will be my princess. Or prince. I'm bi."
  • American Dad!:
    • Hayley Smith has hinted to be this way on occasion, as part and parcel of being a walking stereotype of hippies. She never shows any onscreen attraction to other women, however. In "Killer Vacation" another woman tries to seduce her and the idea that Haley might be bi is dropped entirely.
    • Roger comes across mostly as a gay stereotype, but mostly falls for girls and occasionally showing attraction to certain men. This is usually when Stan is around because the character clash is funnier. The rule seems to be he's only interested in men when it's funny and he's only interested in women when it moves the plot. Or when it's funny.

  • Harley Quinn from Batman: The Animated Series is about as explicitly this as you can get on Saturday morning cartoons. On one hand, her entire character centers around her being in Mad Love with The Joker. On the other hand, she clearly has a thing going on with Poison Ivy whenever she's temporarily on the outs with Mistah J. Word of God confirms that she and Poison Ivy slept together. Ivy herself has dated men a couple of times, but only to either manipulate them or poison them, so it's unclear if she's bisexual or a 100% lesbian.

  • South Park:
    • While Ms. Crabtree, Sheila Broflovski and Mayor McDaniels mainly show interest in guys, the ending of "Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut" suggested they had sex with Liane Cartman at the drunken barn dance. Of course this is to sell the joke that Liane has literally slept with everyone in South Park.

  • Avatar: The Last Airbender:

    • Pink Diamond is a Lipstick Bisexual specifically, as she dresses in pink, wears a tutu and Tinkerbell-like shoes, and reciprocated the attraction of Pearl—especially under Pink Diamond's other identity as Rose Quartz (although both are actually genderless). That said, she ultimately had a child with the human Greg Universe.

He falls for Molly Coddle after she gets covered in trash and stinks, but later refocuses his attention on Mr. Bumpy after finding his odor more appealing. When Bumpy (who was mainly going along with Odie's affections because he was showering him with gifts) and Molly offer to share Odie, the stinkbug snaps that he doesn't want to be shared and storms off, only to catch a whiff of the Closet Monster and to fall in love with him.
