"Fetish object"? Fascinating.

Megane (Japanese: メガネ, meh-GAH-neh, literally "glasses") is Anime Fanspeak for (preferably attractive) guys with glasses. They come in several standard types:

  • For sweet, shy guys with glasses who inspire Moe feelings of protectiveness, see Meganekko (technically this term refers only to girls with glasses, but for convenience boys of this type go under the same trope).
  • For guys whose glasses indicate that they are studious, aloof, or stoic, see Stoic Spectacles.
  • For cruel lovers (mostly men) with glasses who inspire kinky masochistic fetishes, see Bespectacled Bastard Boyfriend.
  • For glasses explicitly treated as a fetish object, see Sexy Spectacles.

Compare Scary Shiny Glasses, Meganekko ("glasses girl"). Also see the Glasses Tropes.


Please do not add examples to work pages, this merely defines the term.
