Even the Girls Want Her

Go To
Just because you're a Chick Magnet, doesn't mean Opposites Attract.

Phoenix: She must have some sort of strange power over [men].
Maya: You're not kidding. Two people in one day. Even I want to profess my love for her.

When a guy is so studly and great that he inspires worship and desire in both women and men, it's Even the Guys Want Him. But when a female character's female fan club matches or exceeds her male fan club, you've stumbled upon the slightly rarer but still prominent Distaff Counterpart: Even The Girls Want Her.

Mostly an anime trope (especially in Girls' Love works), the "her" in question is often an aloof-seeming, athletic high school student who is pursued by every sports club in school, and has the guys crooning "So hot!" as she goes past, and the girls squealing "So cool!" as she goes past (none of these are a hard-and-fast requirement, but most of the examples will pick and choose at least one or two items off the "menu" of aloofness, athletic ability, and "cool" beauty). She will often get chocolates from other girls on Valentine's Day (which is Serious Business in Japan). As a result, this trope is considered less 'sexual' in nature (and can sometimes be quite platonic in intention) as the idea is just to show how cool the girl in question is.


This illustrates the major difference between the gender versions of this trope. The male "admirers" in the case of Even the Guys Want Him often mingle equal amounts jealousy, anger, or frustration into their admiration, often due to Stupid Sexy Flanders. But perhaps due to the concept of the Romantic Two-Girl Friendship, the female admirers in the case of Even The Girls Want Her rarely display any negative connotations to their admiration (or attraction). They'll follow the cool girl around like a pack of lovesick puppies, and never think twice about it. The Love Interest of said girl (be male or female) might be more likely to elicit said reactions, though, but that's a case-by-base scenario. Sometimes, though, said love interest becomes the focus of ire of the fan club as they're not worthy.


Though in some versions, there may be a bit of the Double Standard at work in why females don't seem to bother feeling bad about their crushes or attraction to other girls. In most of the western world, to a great extent a girl finding another girl attractive is "hot" and mainly for male consumption.

This refers specifically to otherwise straight women and girls falling for a woman; if her admirers already liked the ladies, it doesn't count.

Also, if the woman is initially liked by only other women despite there also being men they qualify as Only Has Same-Sex Admirers.

May overlap with Bifauxnen, Cool Big Sis, The Fashionista, Onee-sama, (sometimes) Ojou, and Aloof Dark-Haired Girl.

If her "admirers" include much younger characters as well as both sexes, she may be a Stacy's Mom. If the character is intersex, then it becomes Everybody Wants the Hermaphrodite.

  • Played with in an M&M's commercial where Ms. Green is hit on by several men and women alike. Assuming the women aren't just jealous.

  • In the Indian cartoon Little Krishna, Putana takes the form of a young human woman so beautiful that even the female villagers can't help but admire her.

    Comic Books 
  • Played for Laughs in Nextwave. Monica Rambeau talks about how her fellow Avengers used to hit on her constantly, and concludes with "I don't even want to talk about The Wasp."
  • Storm and Jubilee from the X-Men. Brian Wood's run even has a subplot where Bling, one of the female students at the Jean Grey School, tries to put the moves on Jubilee.
  • Ramba seems to have no problem persuading previously straight women that they want to have sex with her.
  • Radiance from the All-New Invaders. While describing how popular Ryoko is in Japan, the Human Torch states that she has legions of teenage fans who want to date her. According to him, this includes both young men and young women.
  • Omaha from Omaha the Cat Dancer has a few female fans in the story, especially her close friend Shelly and occasional ally Jo.
  • Ramona V. Flowers from Scott Pilgrim. Her 4th evil ex is Roxie Ritcher. Besides that, Kim said (joking or not) that she loved both Scott and Ramona, and that she wanted to be like Ramona.
  • Fantasia Faust from Ironwood, although in her case it's a specific magical effect that is built into her.
  • Wonder Woman #600 features the title character hanging out with a diverse group of young heroines who just helped her fight some robots. Most of the girls talk about how gorgeous and amazing Wonder Woman is, and Batwoman even unsuccessfully tries to ask her out.
    • An earlier issue from Greg Rucka's run showed Wonder Woman at a signing for her new book. Most of the audience members (male and female alike) tried to ask if she was looking for a boyfriend or girlfriend.
  • Ego from Little Ego, at least in her dreams. Everyone she meets in her Dream Land, male or female, is unable to keep their hands off her.
  • At the end of the Kieron Gillen run of Young Avengers, we get this exchange:
    Kate: Am I the only person on the team who's straight?
    Ms America: Princess, I've seen the way you look at me. You're not that straight.
  • Lady Death tends to elicit this reaction from women when it's not jealousy or attempting to kill her. Her original Arch-Enemy used to be Purgatori, a Lesbian Vampire who lusted for her blood and contemplated having her for herself. When Heaven attempted to sway Lady Death to their side, they sent a female angel with an intoxicating scent to seduce her.
  • Red Sonja is apparently accustomed to this treatment and flaunts it when opportunities arise.
    Sonja: I'm Red Sonja. I'm everyone's type.
  • Djinn: Jade is such phenomenally sexy concubine that she makes Lady Nelson willingly join the Royal Harem just to be with her.
  • Somewhere along DC Rebirth it seems to become a running gag that whenever Zatanna makes a guest appearance at least one woman will be smitten by her. In Detective Comics (Rebirth) both Kate Kane and Cassandra Cain entertain the idea of marrying her and in Young Justice (2019) Stephanie Brown proclaims out loud how hot she is upon seeing her.
  • In JLA Classified Power Girl mentions that even some women have been impressed by her bust. She once caught Crimson Fox starring at her chest once or twice.
  • In Alan Ford, the much asked for female addition and co-protagonist Minuette Macon. While her husband and protagonist Alan has always been a Clueless Chick Magnet, it turns out that she's no slouch herself on that matter, occasionally having a Butch Lesbian or a Bifauxnen coming on her (including a stewardess who invited her for sex after revealing that she drugged the entire crew to give them privacy or a recently-crowned baroness declaring that she was going to make her into her concubine). Unfortunately for all those admirers though, Minuette is both straight and faithful to her husband.

  • A Crown of Stars: Even straight women find red-haired Empress Rayana hot and sexy, as Ching admitted to Asuka in chapter 16.

    • Also happens to Shepard when infiltrating Hock's mansion; because of Maeteris' skill with makeup, every single person there can't help but stare at Shepard, and she notices several asari present that are ready to jump her at any given moment.
  • This seems to be a problem plaguing Taylor in Conquest Quest. Not helped by her budding bisexuality.

  • This applies to Bo in Lost in Camelot, although only explicitly demonstrated with Morgana so far, as Morgana came to the tentative realization that she is interested in Bo as a possible romantic partner once the possibility is presented to her, and had previously mused that Bo would have made the perfect suitor if she had been born a man.
  • Erika The Radical: Karen Nakahashi is apparently this among the Kuromorimine campus, to the point where Erika often compares her to a succubus with how easily the latter found the former attractive.

  • Lost to Dust: Yang Xiao Long comments on how hot Minamoto no Raikou is.
  • Bad Influence: According to Jetta's gaydar, Lin-Z is so into Jem and the Holograms because she wants Jem to herself.

  • In the Dresden Files novels, female White Court vampires such as Lara Raith are certainly this. White Court vampires feed on sexual energy, and they are not choosy about the gender of their meals.
  • In the WW2 novel "Spitfire Girls" (by Carol Gould) Valerie Cobb, famous aviatrix and commanding officer of the women ferry pilots, is described in lovestruck terms by all of them.

    Live-Action TV 
  • In Power Rangers Mystic Force, vampire queen Necrolai reveals her human form for the first time, and Xander openly says she's hot.

Not to mention the fact that she was once under Necrolai's Mind Control.
  • Scrubs:
    • When Julie Keaton (played by Heather Locklear) is introduced, all the guys treat her as the hottest girl in the hospital with an emphatic "Damn!", but when Carla says it as well, Turk and J.D. look at her in surprise. When Carla says "What? She's hot." J.D. responds with "No, that's hot."

  • In Angel, Faith gets this in "Release" with a random female character saying, "you're pretty, wanna make out?"

  • Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Olivia Benson. In-universe, the Les Yay subtext suggests that seemingly-straight Alex Cabot (see above) would be quite happy to make an If It's You, It's Okay exception, most clearly described in the Olivia/Alex Ship Manifesto. As would we all.
  • The Office (US): Jim, being the faithful husband he is, isn't willing to admit to Pam how attractive her maternity leave replacement Cathy is. Pam, on the other hand, doesn't hold back.
    Pam: Look at her! Even I want some fries with that shake!
  • The Vampire Diaries: Nina Dobrev has chemistry with every actor on the show... including herself.

Penny does not disclose how far she had to go to get those A's but casually says "it all worked out just fine".

    Topanga: Okay, so she's pretty, she's tall, she drives a red new convertible, oh heck, I'd go out with her.
  • Shake it Up: Danika in "Embarrass It Up". Seriously, Rocky and CeCe both chased after her.
  • Two and a Half Men: Jenny Harper picks up a girl in a bar that isn't a lesbian without revealing that she herself is a lesbian.

Walden even calls it the "lesbian zombie" virus.
  • Alex Kelly, introduced in the second season of The O.C., totally qualifies (for the first, but hardly last time for Olivia Wilde).

    Pro Wrestling 
  • Following hometown and physical stats, Gateway Championship Wrestling ring announcer Erica added "and the only person I would want to sit on my face" to Daizee Haze's introduction.
  • WWE SmackDown!: Torrie Wilson. First, in December 2002, Dawn Marie, who was engaged to Torrie's father Al, guilted her into a makeout session at a hotel room which appeared on the WWE Armageddon 2002 PPV on December 15. At the March 13, 2003 Girls Gone Wild PPV, Stacy Keibler, Torrie's long-time friend/rival both on television and off , did a body shot from Torrie's cleavage (she was wearing a bikini at the time). Then, after a nearly four-year exile due to a lawsuit partially inspired by her having previously refused to do a lesbian angle, Sable returned on the April 3, 2003 (taped April 1) episode, while Torrie was presenting the cover to her Playboy issue, and kissed Torrie. This led to Sable playing mind games with Torrie, leaving her split between seeking Sable's approval and beating her up, and each one attempting to one-up the other in sexiness. This was scrapped when Stephanie McMahon booked herself into a feud with Sable, leaving Torrie to become the new valet for Billy Gunn, in yet another attempt to get him over as anything other than the guy who finished the New Age Outlaws' intro. At the Vengeance PPV on July 27, as part of an on-going "Indecent Proposal" storyline, male wrestler Jamie Noble defeated Billy Gunn, thus giving Noble the right to "sleep" with Torrie on the next episode of SmackDown. During the skit when it was supposed to happen, Noble suggested a threesome with his girlfriend/valet Nidia. This led to a Played for Laughs scene with Noble, Torrie, Nidia and Gunn all in bed together.

  • In the 2018 Australian production of Calamity Jane (which used a minimal cast), during the "Adelaide" number, Miss Susan slips on a false moustache and joins the chorus of men singing about the charms of Adelaide Adams.

    Visual Novels 
  • Circus darling Regina Berry in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney captivates both Phoenix and Maya within minutes of meeting them. Quoted above.
  • In Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, Jean Greyerl is admired by two people of both genders but is only admired by the opposite gender when reveals herself to have been a Sweet Polly Oliver
  • In Heileen not only does Heileen have a handful of male suitors, her closest female friend Marie tends to throw herself onto her when she's not trying to score with the guys (and is responsible for giving Heileen her Sacred First Kiss). One dialogue option in Chapter 5 has the flirty and vivacious Lora admitting that she had once tried being with another woman. In both cases, Heileen is torn between being totally freaked out and quietly accepting it.
  • Kyou Fujibayashi in CLANNAD is revealed to get a number of love letters from girls, while guys seem to find her scary. Apparently it's fairly embarrassing for her and she tries to cover up by saying that uh... maybe some of the letters are asking for advice! before ripping them to shreds.
    • In the anime adaptation, Tomoyo comments that she receives many gifts from girls.
  • Momoyo of Majikoi! Love Me Seriously! has legions of fans of both genders. Confusingly, she calls herself straight, but flirts only with the girls.
  • In Katawa Shoujo, Lilly says she has received many love confessions in the past. Before she cane to Yamaku, she attended an all-girls Catholic school, thus making it likely that most, if not all, of the confessors were female. She also has a fair amount of Les Yay with her best friend Hanako.
    Lilly: Adolescence is a funny time.
    • And at least one girl wants Shizune; it's Misha.

    Web Animation 

  • Magick Chicks:
  • Eerie Cuties: Layla Delacroix is hot enough that she's a Dude Magnet, and even has some of the girls at Charybdis Heights wanting to be with her. Brooke secretly harbors a canonical crush on Layla and, during the "War Dance" arc, a group of girls took Layla to the prom!
  • Female Variant #5 in El Goonish Shive is an example of this trope. For the first 48 hours after being zapped, the target emits super-pheromones that make her attractive to everyone except blood relatives.
  • In Ménage à 3 and its spinoffs, the sheer attractiveness of most of the female cast seems to have quite an effect, though frankly this is a setting where Everyone Is Bi. Some cases in point:
    • DiDi not only gets keen attention from open bisexuals like Zii and Yuki, and the slightly more confused Sonya, she causes the seemingly straight Sandra to at least contemplate going gay. Furthermore, she is given her first orgasm by the straight Kiley, who earlier said that that the thought of sex with a woman scares her. Gay men certainly notice her, too. Peggy makes the point completely explicit in strip #741 (May 14, 2013, NSFW):
      Peggy: I guess I could fall on a one or a two on the Kinsey scale. But I mean, look at you! You can easily make any girl into a three!
    • Peggy accidentally shows up naked before a female and male paramedic. Cue both passing out from nosebleeds (though the female paramedic subsequently lampshades the Everyone Is Bi rule). She also garners a lot of male attention, and a old female friend puts the moves on her, even grabbing her ass and trying to sleep with her.
    • Zii is an extremely skilled seductress who can apparently get practically any woman into bed, regardless of whether or not they've ever shown any lesbian or bisexual tendencies before. (At least that's how it looks in some early comics. Later, things get more complicated.) Izz develops a girl crush for her without Zii even trying, and Sonya has dangerously strong feelings for her. And even DiDi, the girl she has Single-Target Sexuality for and long evades Zii’s attentions, eventually warms to Zii as a potential lover/girlfriend.
    • Also, there's Sandra, seen mostly in spinoff Sandra on the Rocks. In Ménage à 3, she manages to attract DiDi at one point and dates Matt. In her own webcomic, Cammi lusts for her to the point of trying to seduce her (and Sandra might well have accepted had she not remembered she's already dating Pierre). Then there's Marie's fangirl crush on her, to the point where she washes Sandra's back in one scene, Gary and Alex expressing interest, and her attracting girls right away when she went to a lesbian bar. After a Time Skip during which Sandra became a successful model on her own, she has become far more confident (without needing to be drunk first) and has apparently come to terms with her sexuality, flirting with Ingrid like it's no big deal and, in the final strip of the comic, declaring love for Cammi and starting a relationship with her.
    • The other spinoff, Sticky Dilly Buns, has Ruby, who has guys showing interest in her, while in the past the female Professor Conried got her to wear a short skirt so she could check her out, and Zii has shown interest as well. Admittedly, Zii is an acknowledged bisexual and the same might go for the Professor, but all this emphasises that Ruby is darned sexy for a nerdy virgin who used to avoid the whole subject. Other girls are certainly not shy about pointing out her attractiveness.
  • In Red String, Maya has a huge female fan club that all act like they're fawning over a cute boy. Fuuko even falls completely in love with her as part of her coming out story.
  • An early page of The Blonde Marvel has a mugger admonish the "New", skinny Blonde Marvel, admitting he used to get in touch with himself to pictures of her ample assets. The woman he's currently mugging admits she did the same thing.
  • Dumbing of Age:
    • Sal appears to be this. Both male and female characters frequently comment on how attractive and all-around amazing she is; even the devout and straight-laced Joyce has admitted to twinges.
    • Billie is either an example of this, or meets an inordinately high number of gay or bisexual girls. She has been kissed by Ruth, almost kissed by Daisy, and Joyce has shown an uncharacteristic interest in "getting lost" in her breasts.
  • In the first issue of Love and Capes, the heroine, Abby, is shocked to find that her boyfriend, Superman-expy Mark, used to date Wonder Woman-expy Amazonia. She's brooding about it when her sister Charlotte walks in and asks what the matter is. At first, Charlotte doesn't see that there's much of a problem — Mark loves Abby — until she learns that the ex in question is Amazonia.
    Charlotte: Whoa! Heck, I'd do her.
    Abby (whisper): Me too...
  • Dabbler, in Grrl Power, definitely has this effect; women looking at her all start thinking "Not a lesbian. Not a lesbian. Not a lesbian." However, with her it's an explicitly supernatural effect; she's part-succubus, and generates an aura of sexual fascination. Her team leader has to tell her to dial it back periodically; Dabbler finds the results amusing.
  • Mr. Boop: Alec's therapist can't help thinking about how hot Betty Boop is.

    Web Original 
  • In Touhou: a Glimmer of an Outside World, everyone finds Kaguya attractive. Even the few straight girls.
  • In Ilivais X, the list of girls who HAVEN'T shown interest in Mille are [Lau and Electra (who've never even seen her), Alice (who's devoted to Locke anyway), and Dia. Granted, this is a universe in which humans are basically sterile and reproduction is done artificially, so sexuality doesn't matter, but there is still an inherent, albeit weakened gender barrier. Mille still expresses her surprise at being able to shatter it so easily and suddenly.
  • In Greek Ninja, crazed succubus Dolores confesses her undying love for Sasha — the reincarnated form of her ex-lover Eli. Although it's Eli she's actually after, she doesn't seem to mind the fact Sasha is a girl and even locks lips with her later.
  • In one vlog, Female Misogynist Hyper Fangirl (from The Nostalgia Critic) gushes over how beautiful Rachel Tietz is.

    Western Animation 
  • Francine Smith from American Dad!. The Smiths' neighbor, Linda Memari, is in love with her.And the episode "My Morning Straitjacket" has a female bouncer attracted to her, with Francine not minding and even initiating a kiss with her.
  • Archer features Ms. Fanservice Lana: when she started selling sex to her collegues to get back at Cyril, first up was Pam. Later on, Cyril spots Ray in the queue and when he asks him about it, he replies "Girl, please. Nobody's that gay."
  • As Told by Ginger: Ginger Foutley is a Dude Magnet and Courtney appears to have much Les Yay towards her.
  • The episode "A Shot In D'arc" of Clone High has Cleopatra realizing the guy she had been flirting with was actually Joan Of Arc in disguise. Upon realizing this, her only comment is "Hot!"
  • Doug: Judy. In "Doug's a Big Fat Liar", Patty goes to a dance with "Melvin", really Judy in drag. Seems innocent enough, but when the whole ruse is revealed, Patty isn't even upset! She even says "Melvin" is the best dancer at the hoedown and continues to dance with Judy throughout the rest of the episode. Also, they share Judy's room in an episode of the Disney series.
  • Family Guy
    • Lois has attracted tons of male admirers despite being married to Peter. Bonnie is also willing to make out with her, Meg's lesbian friend was happy when she kissed her, and Meg's friend once told her about Lois "Your mom is so fucking hot."
    • Brian mentions Chris’s new girlfriend Isabella is hot while biting his lip and Lois does the same thing while agreeing with “Yeah, she is.”
    • Connie bullies Meg quite often but Meg seems to have something for her as shown when she asks Connie if she can think about her in the tub tonight. When Connie says no Meg stubbornly states "I'm still gonna". There's also that time she willingly tongue kissed Connie for a few seconds.
  • The Peacock Queen from Hero: 108 can hypnothise both male and female humans with her beauty in order to serve her. Mystique Sonia briefly becomes an example in the same episode when her Yaksha makes her beautiful after her hair and clothes were ruined with the help from some peacock feathers and by turning itself into a pink dress, which makes both the peacocks (including the Queen) and the zebra brothers fall in love with Sonia. Unfortunately, anyone who confesses his feelings to her three times in row turns into a Yaksha.
  • A season four episode of KaBlam! had a scene involving a group of female fans of June that were so obsessed with her, they even dressed like her, did their hair like her, and yes, were as hot-tempered as her.
  • Kaeloo: Ursula is apparently so hot that not only Mr. Cat and Stumpy find her attractive, even Kaeloo says she's very beautiful.
  • In Making Fiends, Vendetta seems to get some attention from other girls. Charlotte is convinced that she is her best friend, reaching obsessive, stalker-like levels. Charlotte has also complimented Vendetta's looks. In a TV episode, Vendetta had to temporarily leave her house and stayed with Marion, who she pretended to be close friends with to spite Charlotte. This not only made Charlotte sad, but also caused Marion to feel horrible when Vendetta said she meant nothing to her, not to mention Marion temporarily turned evil due to her influence. In the web episodes, there was Rubella, a fiend made to replace Vendetta's former bodyguard, Grudge. When Vendetta thinks she has killed Charlotte off, she and Rubella go off to torture the town residents with fiends. Rubella feels so close to her, that she buys her a musical toy bear that looks like something you'd give out Valentine's Day. Too bad Rubella didn't know she was melophobic...
  • Tiny Toon Adventures: One short called "Can't Buy Me Love" has Elmyra meet an evil little girl called Rhoda. Elmyra sees hearts and positively MELTS when Rhoda says she'll let her be her best friend, and spends the rest of the picture bending over backwards to make Rhoda like her. It plays VERY much like any episode where Elmyra chases Max, only way more seriously, and heck, Elmyra even lets Rhoda HAVE Max (who doesn't want him after mere moments). And after she learns her lesson about not needing to give someone something so they'll like you, Rhoda comes by her window and says she'll be her friend again if Elmyra steals her mom's car keys and drives her to Utah. Instantly Elmyra says "okay" and rushes off eagerly to Rhoda's side. So not only is Elmyra completely infatuated with Rhoda, but apparently Rhoda can't leave Elmyra alone for five minutes, even after Elmyra dumped her.

    Real Life 
  • Porn star Jenna Jameson, who is openly bisexual, claims that Cindy Crawford once hit on her at a party:
    "Once the lights and the camera switched off, the party began. I sat down with my new best friend, Cindy Crawford and we talked. However, I kept getting a weird vibe from her. I knew what it meant, because I experienced it many times before, but I kept dismissing it. It couldn't be true: she was Cindy Crawford, after all. When I turned my back to her to talk to an E! crew member sitting on my left, Cindy reached over and rubbed the back of my neck. "Ooh", she cooed 'look at your beautiful tattoo!". She {Crawford] touched my neck so softly and sensually. Was she making a pass at me? I froze. It was too much. She was so larger than life that I couldn't even imagine running my tongue along that trademark mole of hers. So I excused myself to get a drink."
  • Marilyn Monroe: The then 16-year-old president of her fan club, Jane Lawrence is a lesbian and claims to have slept with Ms. Monroe and enjoyed the confidence and the hunger that she displayed in bed.
