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 Fey: 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 Yuri Genre 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 Pseudo-Romantic 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 women don't seem to bother feeling bad about their crushes or attraction to other women. 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.

  • 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 
  • 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.
  • In The Alternates, Mary uses her powers to disguise herself as a hot goth so that she can hang out with Crab Louie's daughter Alyse and her supposed boyfriend, knowing that they've been buying Prestige to try and give themselves powers. Her disguise works a little too well; it turns out that Alyse is bisexual and has a thing for Morticia Addams.
  • 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.

  • Jubilee from the X-Men.
  • At the end of the Kieron Gillen run of Young Avengers, we get this exchange:

    Galaxy: I have a girlfriend, okay? I barely even noticed Supergirl.
    Steel: There is no way on God's green Earth that is true.

  • 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.

Some of the girls in the chat (Alya, Chloé, and Alix) admit to having been attracted to her at some point and Kagami realizes she falls into the same category.
  • Vow of the King: Unohana is lusted after by sixty percent of the Seireitei overall and ninety-three percent of her division.

  • DC Extended Universe:
    • Suicide Squad (2016) has a scene where a group of soldiers stare at Harley Quinn while she's stripping out of her prison uniform and changing into her costume. When Harley notices this, it's shown that one of the soldiers ogling her is a woman.
    • Barbara Minerva in Wonder Woman 1984 is heavily obsessed with Diana to the point where their early interactions give off the impression that she's picking out names for their hypothetical adopted children.

  • Elvira, Mistress of the Dark: A young Amish woman in a buggy is very taken with the titular character, and enticingly waves hello. One teenage girl, Robin, also couldn't help but stare at Elvira from legs to chest. Elvira doesn't seem to mind at all.

  • Darla from Just Friends. Samantha James, who's bisexual, kisses her on the lips in one scene and later states that she likes girls, meaning Darla.
  • Mädchen in Uniform takes place in a Prussian One-Gender School. Many of the girls are head-over-heels for their teacher, Fräulein von Bernburg.

  • In Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Knives Chau is a little too obsessed with Envy Adams.
  • In Siren (2010), Silka's presence is enough to make Ken, Marco and Rachel desire her.
  • Vicki in Vampire Diary.

It certainly applies to Hazel, assuming she's straight like she claims.

  • The title character of Friday, an Artificial Human created as a corporate prostitute (but who at book's opening is more of a military courier for hire), is invariably asked for kisses by the various women she meets.

  • Pippa from the Gemma Doyle trilogy. Felicity is in love with her. Gemma also has a male love interest and quite a lot of Les Yay with her female circle of friends.
  • Scarlett of Gone with the Wind. Worthy of note is how much Melanie fangirls over her.

Besides drawing the interest of five different guys she also ends up charming Mary and Maria, who were one of the love rivals and the heroine herself in the original Fortune Lover respectively, by accidentally stealing the Meet Cute moments they were supposed to have with some of the boys. Her other friend Sophia is downplayed, as she still cares about Catarina, but it's more for friendship and their shared love of romance novels than actual romantic love. It helps that the two of them were best friends back on Earth. Inversely, Catarina often thinks to herself how incredibly beautiful Maria is despite her constantly claiming to be heterosexual.
  • Schooled in Magic: Emily is a magnet for her fellow sorceresses. Frieda falls in love almost immediately after she takes her under her wing, Julienne calls her "beautiful" and "perfect" and spends a page or so admiring her body in the bath, and Alassa's suggestion that Emily turn into a man to marry her wasn't entirely driven by political considerations; indeed, Alassa didn't care about her gender except for political reasons. Later, Nanette reveals that she fancies Emily, though even if Emily swung that way, she wouldn't reciprocate as Nanette's become her bitter enemy.
  • The Lady of the Green Kirtle in The Silver Chair. She's described as very beautiful and charismatic, and before she learnt who she truly was, Jill Pole was pretty much goo-gaa over her.

  • 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.

    Topanga: If it's any consolation, I think you can do a lot better than Jennifer Bassett.
    Shawn: You think so?

  • 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 ongoing "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.

    Visual Novels 
  • 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 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.
  • In Katawa Shoujo, Lilly says she has received many love confessions in the past. Before she came 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.
  • Matsuri Amishiam of Kindred Spirits on the Roof is more popular than most of the rest of the cast(who only get attention from their respective love interests), and regularly gets confessions from other students at their all-girls school. This, combined with Matsuri's nonchalance toward the confessions, annoys Matsuri's girlfriend Miyu Inamoto, and Miyu can't help but rub it in when she gets a confession herself.
  • 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 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.

    • 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 clobbered Connie with a sack full of soda cans and then tongue-kissed her unconscious body, though to be fair, she was just recently released from prison when that happened, and that's just the sort of thing prison inmates are known to do regardless of sexuality.
  • Galaxy High when Aimee and Doyle are introduced to the girls gym class in the first episode "Welcome to Galaxy High" Doyle expects to be the same Chick Magnet that he was at his Earth High School and tries to flirt with the entire class.... who immediately push him to one side and all flock to Aimee surrounding her and asking her personal questions. Milo de Venus points out a dejected Doyle this because male classmates out number the female classmates 3-to-1 at the school so they're mostly excited to potentially make a new female friend (and Wendy Gabot does offer Aimee a little black book with Wendy's "ratings" of every boy in school) but they also seem very eager to impress Aimee.
  • 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 a row turns into a Yaksha.

  • 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 stay 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 on Valentine's Day. Too bad Rubella didn't know she was melophobic...
  • Miraculous Ladybug has its protagonist Marinette Dupain-Cheng. In season 5, she mistakes one of her female friends, Zoé Lee, to be in love with her boyfriend, just for the latter to end up making it explicitly clear to her later on that she was the one with whom she was in love with all along.

  • The Loud House: In the episode "Study Muffin" Luna Loud joins all of the boys in Lincoln's class in liking Ms. DiMartino by calling her smokin'. It should be noted that this episode debuted before Luna was canonized as bisexual.
  • 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.
