No Yay

Go To

"Are you... Are you coming on to me?! Sweet Lord, I don't even have the words for how repugnantly wrong that is!"

Subtext can be all kinds of fun. It can hint that those Heterosexual Life-Partners might not be so Hetero. Or those Bitter Enemies might not hate each other after all. Or, even if they do legitimately hate each other, there may be hints that the hatred in question isn't exactly platonic. Unfortunately, sometimes subtext can be used for a very different effect.

That's No Yay. Implied sexual tension, intentional or otherwise, between two (or more) characters to make the average fan reach for the Brain Bleach, for reasons such as Pedophilic overtones, incest, Unequal Pairings, or Sexual Harassment and Rape Tropes. If one half of the pairing is a Memetic Molester, this is likely to occur. Essentially, the shipping version of Fan Disservice.

Remember to note that an implied relationship between two consenting adults is not No Yay, and the presence of another element is required. When adding examples, please be sure to explain why that potential ship is a No Yay and what separates it from just regular Ho Yay or Foe Yay. Of course, one person's Squick is another person's Fetish, and this is a highly subjective trope. And if you're just here to complain about a pairing you don't like, please keep it off the main page.


See also Squick, Fan Disservice, Not What It Looks Like, Nightmare Fuel, Brain Bleach, Sick and Wrong, "No. Just... No" Reaction, and This Is Wrong on So Many Levels. Also tends to crop up when I Have You Now, My Pretty and its sister tropes get played horrifyingly straight.

    Anime & Manga 
  • +Anima, despite that it's directed at kids 10+, has Fly being creepily obsessed with Cooro. Not only does he spend the entire 10 book series tracking all of Cooro's movements, but he refers to him as 'his Angel', and states that he'll 'never let him go'.
  • Adekan:
    • Kusuko's insane father is a powder box merchant who enslaves low-born young women and sells them to men to be abused. After murdering his low-born wife for unverified suspicions that she was cheating on him, he then turns around and imprisons his daughter in a Gilded Cage while telling her terrifying tales of the outside world... and having sex with a girl who looks like a carbon copy of her on the side. Not horrifying enough for you? To keep his daughter in line, he tells her scary stories about a monstrous yuurei, Nainai-sama, who haunts their box-maze mansion. Except Nainai-sama is real...
    • Shinonome's obsession with Shiro, given Shiro's implied past of being made a Sex Slave by him.
  • Air Gear features a BDSM-type relationship between Arthur and Shalott, including a scene where they lay naked together. Another No Yay scene features Arthur pelvic thrusting against his opponent Agito and nibbling on his ear. Oh, and when Shalott straddles Agito at the end of one chapter and tells him after he tortures him via pulling out his teeth he can "have a lick" if he wants.
  • Airmaster: Kinjiro and Nagato. Nagato is quite unattractive and Kinjiro is attractive. Nagato says he wants to have Kinjiro's babies and asks him for a kiss which he reluctantly gives to take the pain of an injury away.
  • Azumanga Daioh: Mr. Kimura's obsession with high school girls. In particular his obsession with Kaorin.
  • From Baccano! we have every single interaction between the immortal ten-year-old Czeslaw and his also immortal former guardian, Fermet. The latter is later revealed to have been a psychotic Torture Technician who enjoyed making poor Czeslaw suffer For the Evulz, not to mention being eternally ten or twenty years his senior and giving off major pederast vibes.
  • Bakemonogatari: Koyomi and his sister Karen. One notable scene being when he gets on top of her in bed when brushing her teeth which causes her to act like she's having an orgasm the entire time while moaning.
  • The Beast Player: There is a relationship between Damiya and Seimiya. First of all, he is her first cousin once removed. Secondly, he is a creepy Smug Snake, who killed her grandmother.
  • Berserk:
    • Griffith's very possessive obsession with Guts... constantly telling Guts "You are mine"/"You belong to me." Trying to kill him to prevent him from leaving the Band Of The Hawks, visiting Princess Charlotte and having sex with her immediately after Guts left out of frustration and depression, and then, when the Eclipse goes down, after consigning his entire body of men to be eaten alive by demons and becoming Femto, planting a Forceful Kiss on Guts' Love Interest Casca before brutally raping her into insanity... forcing Guts to watch while he is doing so and deliberately staring straight into Guts's eyes the ENTIRE TIME he is doing that to Casca.
    • All those rapes or near-rapes in the series that various characters endure.
    • Rosine the "Elf Queen" and Jill, two minor characters in a story arc shortly after the Eclipse, given the age of the two and Rosine's rather disturbing Yandere obsession with Jill.
    • Princess Charlotte and her old father, the King of Midland. She looks identical to her mother, the Queen, which... caused some problems. Canonically, he ends up trying to rape her, after his rage that Griffith slept with her. This alienates her from her father to the point of disowning him and refusing to see him when he's on his deathbed, his health having seriously deteriorated because of the guilt of what he had done.
    • Slan's attraction to Guts. She's probably incapable of feeling love, being evil to the bone and all, so she seems to want to make Guts her personal sex toy. At one point, Slan decides to show up to taunt Guts in the Qliphoth. She decides to do this by appearing in front of him completely naked and acting as though they're having sex. This would be erotic, considering how beautiful and sexy Slan is... if it wasn't for the fact that the body she's in is made out of the internal organs of the hundreds of trolls that Guts has just slaughtered, they are surrounded by blood and gore, and she's impaling him with her hair.
  • In Birdy the Mighty: Decode a number of comments that Shyamalan makes about Sayaka, and the way he treats her when they're alone together, suggest that he may have feelings for her—despite the fact that he's an adult corporate executive and she's a high-schooler (and also that he, you know, wants to use the super weapon Sayaka is playing host to to wipe out most of humanity).
  • Black Butler:
    • Baron Kelvin's obsession with Ciel. It's particularly disturbing since Baron Kelvin is a fat and old reprobate who fell in love with Ciel when the latter was just seven years old.
    • And the strongly implied sex scene between Alois/Jim and his "father" the Earl Trancy in episode 8 of the second season.
      • Everything about the late Earl Trancy and his "doll" collection.
      • In episode 9 the Earl Trancy is seen briefly kissing the foot of the much younger Alois and later Ciel.
    • Sebastian and Ciel is considered Ho Yay by a lot of the fandom, but it can come off as Nightmare Fuel-tastic threats at times, since Sebastian is basically killing time until he gets to eat Ciel's soul. And actually tries to in both the anime and manga. It's also implied that his influence in Ciel's life is corrupting him further. There's also a disturbing scene in the manga where he breathes in mustard gas without inflicting any harm to himself before returning to have his usual subtext with Ciel.
      • Chapter 94 features Sebastian grabbing Ciel and tying him up with tendrils of darkness as well as grabbing his face in his hands and getting quite close. This occurring while Ciel was in a bed, still weak from the poisonous gas, and utterly afraid of Sebastian at the time makes this example especially jarring.
    • Grell's crush on Sebastian, given Grell is a psychopath who talks within the same five minutes about wanting to cut Sebastian into pieces and bear his children.
    • Ciel is kind of a pedo magnet. Aleister, Sebastian, Undertaker, Kelvin, Claude, Lau, & Nina. As well as some late-teens; Soma & Redmond.
    • For an 11-year-old girl, Sieglinde is very educated in sex and seems way too eager to lose her virginity (offering herself to Ciel and Sebastian to gain their trust, suggesting she eats food off Ciel's body, asking Sebastian for "DNA", etc.).
    • Maurice Cole and his behavior towards Edgar, given how it's makeup that makes him look Bishonen and underneath he's not good looking, as well as his atrocious personality.
    • In episode 20 a deformed Gonkish looking guy tears Sebastian's shirt open deliberately, who's shackled to a wall, and fawns over him saying "He's lovely!" He also comments on his pretty eyes that he would love to destroy and says "Let's hear a nice scream from you, you pretty thing!" before torturing him. All while drooling.
  • Black Cat: Creed's obsession with Train. He spies on him sleeping in one scene, tries to kill him, kills his friend Saya and tries to kill his Heterosexual Life-Partner Sven, as well as saying that he'd rather have him by his side as a dead body rather than let Saya have him.
  • Black Lagoon:
    • The incestuous relationship between Creepy Twins Hansel and Gretel, made worse by them being young children who gleefully torture and murder people. Strangely, instead of being used to horrify, their relationship is the only thing that humanises them, and turns out to be rather sweet in comparison to everything else.
    • The scene where Gretel disarms Eda in Episode 15; after the first grope (feeling for her gun holster, so it's justified), she gropes her again, this time lifting up part of tank top and grabs a nice handful of Eda's cleavage while her voice drops an octave.
    • After Jane suggests she might make a pass at Rock, Revy's reaction is not to make a death threat as would be expected from someone hitting her Berserk Button about him, but to say that she'd play like she did in prison in Chapter 81. It comes off as quite creepy, as not only does it shed some rather unsettling light on Revy's prison experience, but Revy here is basically threatening to make Jane her bitch.
  • Bleach:
    • Aizen claims to have been manipulating every event and battle in Ichigo's life, including the death of his mother, from the moment Ichigo was born. If true, this would go well beyond Stalker with a Crush and into Paranoia Fuel.
    • Gin/Rukia. It's canon that Gin scares the shit out of Rukia. When she was in Soul Society waiting her execution she stated that even if he wasn't talking to her she'd get this ominous feeling like "snakes were curling themselves around her" and she could feel "every bead of sweat" on her body whenever he was in her mere presence. And of course, there's the fact that Gin was a total asshole and told her that he would save her from being executed before squashing her hopes down flat.
    • Nnoitra/Orihime. It was made quite obvious in the Japanese version of the manga that he wanted to do that to her (something Ulquiorra calls him on), but then Kubo had to get all symbolic and subtext-y. Some of the subtext was toned down during the transition from manga to anime; for instance, where he shoves his fingers down Orihime's throat in the manga during Ichigo's fight with Tesra/Tesla, the anime has him cover her mouth with his hand.
    • Chapter 381 has this with Ichigo finally meeting Mayuri. Their interactions are... disturbing, to say the least. Ichigo appears to have merrily escaped Mayuri's wrath for now. But it looks like Mayuri now seems very interested in him - both because of Ichigo's happy comment which pissed him off, and because of Ichigo's potential.
    • There is an uncomfortable amount of this between Loly and Orihime. When not beating up or attempting to kill Orihime, Loly is stroking her hair, calling her "Orihime-chan" ("little Orihime"), invading her personal space, caressing her face, pinning her against walls, tearing her clothes... it's surprisingly easy to do Alternate Character Interpretation of Loly as a Depraved Bisexual targeting Orihime. In the manga, Loly planned to tear off Orihime's fingernails and rip out her eye as a way to torture her. Thankfully, she didn't get to do that.
  • Bubblegum Crisis: Mackie's Establishing Character Moment has him looking down Sylia's dressing gown. He's her brother. Making things worse is that a later episode showed him putting a camera in Sylia's changing room and disappointed that he couldn't catch Sylia in her underwear. Outside of some implicit sexual tension in the very last episode, he doesn't show even the slightest interest in any of the other attractive women in the series.
  • Bunny Drop is infamous for this. To summarize, the manga is about a 30-year old man who raises a 6-year-old. The first half focuses on Daikichi and Rin's familial bond. The manga then skips 10 years where Rin is revealed to be in love with Daikichi, he reciprocates, they get married and have a child. The Wife Husbandry aspect turned readers off and most fans pretend that the latter part doesn't exist and both screen adaptations end before the time skip.
  • Cardcaptor Sakura:
    • Sonomi Daidouji is implied to be attracted to Sakura as a stand-in for Sakura's mother Nadeshiko, who was her cousin.
    • One episode has Sonomi manipulating events so that Sakura spends the day alone with Masaki Amamiya (Sonomi's grandfather) — but Sakura doesn't know it's her great-grandfather, and her immediate family didn't know where she was all day, so the subtext becomes incredibly unfortunate even if there weren't any actual devious intentions.
    • The third-grade student who is in love with and wants to marry her teacher, feelings which are reciprocated by the teacher. For what it's worth, he does agree to a Jail Bait Wait (in a way that still feels rather predatory), and the anime changes it to a one-sided Precocious Crush.
  • Code Geass:
    • Episode 7 R2 has a creepy scene where Korczak, a Refrain drug dealer, saunters up to Lelouch and gently caresses his face with the back of his hand. In the English Dub he refers to Lelouch as "my dearest."
    • Episode 7 also features Rolo, Lelouch's "younger brother," getting really close to his face and acting like he's trying to kiss him.
    • Nina's feelings for Euphemia would be standard Les Yay if not for that gross scene in the anime where she masturbates using the corner of a table to pictures of her, or how she goes utterly batshit after Euphemia's death and makes the most disturbing facial expression ever.
    • V.V. very, very canonically killing his brother's wife because he was jealous of her stealing all his brother's love and attention. Keep in mind that V.V. is physically about 7. Also, Schneizel flirts with his sister Cornelia and acts very... strangely about his younger brother Lelouch, whom he refers to as "the man I most love... and fear." Gets worse when you realize Lelouch was 10 the last time Schneizel saw him face to face.
    • Mao's Yandere obsession with C.C. He listens to a recording of her voice to comfort him and he thinks it's alright to cut her up with a chainsaw in order to run away with her.
  • D.Gray-Man:
    • Tyki's subtext with Allen is very disturbing, because Tyki has tried to kill Allen numerous times and has destroyed his Innocence.
    • Road is quite attractive but she's also quite a frightening sadistic Yandere with a crush on Allen. Plus, it's been revealed that she might be related to him.
  • D.N.Angel:
    • Hiwatari Sr. has many, very creepy moments with Satoshi, his adopted son. From "I missed seeing your face" to "I'm doing this for you, my precious son" to "I don't want to lose you" to "One has to take good care of their tools" to a scene in Stage Four (manga volume 15) in which he forces Satoshi to transform while holding him down over a table — yes, the entire thing has very disturbing rape undertones.
    • Satoshi and his Superpowered Evil Side Krad: Whenever we see the two together alone, it's generally Krad cuddling Satoshi from behind, or declaring that "You are my everything, Satoshi-sama." Would be incredibly sweet if not for the fact that Krad is also a homicidal blonde angel, who only really wants to take over Satoshi's body, as he's some kind of incorporeal spirit and Satoshi is his "host". Well. Hopefully that's all he means by it. Krad also tremendously enjoys reminding Satoshi that he (Satoshi) is not allowed to get close to anyone, and especially not his sworn enemy/best and only friend/possibly love interest.
    • In episode 25 Satoshi's adopted father calls Krad "my cute little servant" after Krad asks for them to get along.
  • Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School: Has Mikan/Junko. They had shippers in the previous installment as a Mind Game Ship, but this one takes it to new lengths and portray the little relationship they had filled with Domestic Abuse, Fan Disservice and Nightmare Fuel. The undertones of how the latter treats the former are so uncomfortable and atrocious that the ship was dropped in an instant.
  • Darker Than Black: Maki/Amber. Maki is a sociopathic creepy Child Soldier with Social Darwinist tendencies, who acts like a Stalker with a Crush towards his boss to a point he tries to Murder the Hypotenuse. Amber, on the other hand, is an adult woman in a body of a teenage girl and she becomes younger and younger as she uses her powers finally turning into a little girl and then disappearing completely. She is also a Manipulative Bitch with an Omniscient Morality License and an ability to see the future. Which means she knows Maki is going to die and chooses to do nothing about it, because it would ruin her plan and lead to a destruction of all Contractors.
  • Deadman Wonderland: Genkaku/Nagi. It starts off a bit more subtle, with Genkaku seeming a bit too intense and obsessed with getting Nagi to join the Undertakers (along with an interrogation scene between the two, where Genkaku is shown licking the blood from Nagi's arm after his hand was chopped off and telling him what he says is "cute" and that his severed hand has become "cute" as well). Later, the No Yay levels go through the roof when Genkaku is shown getting incredibly turned on by Nagi killing some poor sap, saying that Nagi is a "red flower that has bloomed." After that, he later pretty much gives Nagi a love confession telling him that the murderous side of him was beautiful and exquisite, and that he loved him.
  • Death Note:
    • Higuchi and Misa's car scene. Higuchi is a Dirty Old Man and Misa is a young woman about half his age. After Higuchi proposes he looked about ready to rape her.
    • Ryuk (an ugly inhuman monster) and Light (a Bishōnen teenage boy that said monster had no small part in corrupting into becoming a mass murderer). Ryuk is always looming behind Light and is a very close talker when propositioning an exchange of bodyparts (...eyes). Ryuk follows Light EVERYWHERE, is often seen lounging around in Light's bed, and is always staring at Light with the rape grin. Plus, Ryuk only cares about how Light can entertain him. They are both extremely bored so who's to say what could happen... They live together for years 'til death do they part. There's more subtext in the manga—at one point Light tells Ryuk that he thinks he's cute, and then there's the scene where he's grabbing at Ryuk's belt when he's begging for his life.
    • Mello and mafia leader Rod Ross seem creepily close too. Bad because Mello was no older than 15 when he joined the mafia, and Word of God names Rod Ross as the most evil guy in the Death Note series.
    • Near/Light. Near is only a few years younger than Light but he looks like a child. From the moment Light first talks to Near he gets the feeling that he's talking to L. Near keeps calling and harassing Light at odd hours of the day and night and hanging up, has a habit of making some very unsettling facial expressions when thinking about what he's going to do with Light, and in the manga he wanted to KEEP Light. And when Near corners Light it's dripping with rape metaphors. Seriously, every line from the ending could be used in a rape scene and not seem out of place.
    • In the novel Death Note: Another Note, Beyond Birthday and his creepy obsession with L.
  • Descendants of Darkness:
    • The incredible amount of Ho Yay Muraki aims at the main character becomes really weird when we discover that his goal is to put his dead brother's head on Tsuzuki's body. Muraki is also an insane Depraved Bisexual who raped and murdered Hisoka.
    • Hisoka and Tsuzuki are standard Ho Yay except for that one scene in the anime where a possessed Tsuzuki attacks Hisoka with a knife.
  • Devil May Cry: The Animated Series: The Prison Warden hits on Dante in one scene and is strongly implied to be raping the inmates on a regular basis.
  • Dragon Ball
    • Dragon Ball:
      • General Blue, one of the members of the Red Ribbon Army, has an anime-exclusive scene where he falls in Love at First Sight with and attempts to romantically kiss Obotchaman, an android designed to appear 13 years old (and look even younger), which comes off as creepy as you think it would. Thankfully, Obotchaman leaves before Blue can carry this out. Understandably, the English dub rewrote this so that Blue mistakes Obotchaman for his long-lost little brother.
    • Dragon Ball Z:
      • When Vegeta runs into Gohan on Namek. The way he caresses the boy's face and talks about how they're the last of their kind, all the while Vegeta has this really unsettling look on his face will give anyone nightmares.
      • Dr. Gero's... assault of Piccolo. Gero snuck up on Piccolo from behind, wrapped his legs around his waist, held a hand over his mouth so he couldn't call for help, and whispered in Piccolo's ear as he forcibly drained the energy from his body. The whole moment came off extraordinarily like a rape scene.
      • When Gero and Android 19 attacked Yamcha, complete with Gero covering Yamcha's mouth and then stabbing him through the chest with his hand. Lots of disturbing rape vibes there too.
      • Cell's obsession with absorbing Androids 17 and 18 so he can become perfect. He absorbs them with that phallic tail of his and it gets really creepy really fast. In the English dub (not sure about the Japanese version) Cell uses pick-up lines on them both before he absorbs them while getting his rape-face on. He tells 17 that he is "amazingly efficient" and tells 18 that she's "poetry in motion".
    • In Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, 12-year-old Trunks has a Precocious Crush on Mai, a 46-year-old woman de-aged into a child who tried to kill Trunks' mom back when Bulma was 16. By the end of the movie, Mai seems to be reciprocating his feelings.
    • Dragon Ball Super:
      • During the Future Trunks Saga, the scene where Goku Black and Future Zamasu hugging each other after being acquainted may look adorable and sound like shipping material between them...until you realize that Black is Zamasu, just a different timeline version so they are basically hugging themselves or rather, patting themselves in the back. It instead highlights just how much of a narcissistic bastard Zamasu is considering that he loves no-one but himself. Taken to the extreme, his narcissism and obsession with dominating Goku for his own pleasure brings other implications.
      • Thanks to Values Dissonance, Muten Roshi's Dirty Old Man antics are more likely to come across as creepy than cheeky.
  • Durarara!!: Izaya, being quite attractive is still quite a Jerkass and has moments like this with the girls he almost convinces to commit suicide. After one of them breaks into his hospital room and tries to kill him, he hugs her tightly while thanking her and telling her how much he loves her. Of course, it's plain creepy in context.
  • Ergo Proxy: There's a scene wherein Raul Creed is threatening Daedalus into helping him, coming up quite close and, if memory serves, touching him on the face. Though both characters are attractive, the whole thing feels very much like rape, making it highly disturbing.
  • Food Wars!: Even though she's the Jerkass Rich Bitch, Erina Nakiri and the relationship with her father Azami has loads of extremely implicit overtones, despite the latter merely wanting to be a Control Freak of her life. Unfortunately, various images of the two in the manga, as well as the cover art for volume 16, where Erina's shown in chains while being in a suggestive pose by the latter, only reinforces this trope.
    • To a lesser level, there's Jun/Akira. Although some people see Ship Tease in their relationship, Jun is Akira's adoptive mother and actively considers him her child, which makes the ship goes straight into Squick territory for many viewers.
  • Fullmetal Alchemist:
    • The first anime has Dante hitting on Ed in the final episodes. 1) Its the Big Bad towards The Hero. 2) She is, at the time that she begins hitting on him, inhabiting the rotting corpse of her former assistant. 3) She is plotting to Body Surf into the body of Rose, one of Ed's possible Love Interests, a Nice Girl who already experienced Rape as Drama and Child by Rape (and very obviously traumatised by it) in order to consummate the relationship. 4) Ed is her former partner's son, and she is only doing this to be "loved by the son of Hohenheim". 5) Dante is four hundred years old, and was in the body of an old woman when we first met her, while Ed is 15. It's played for the level of disgust one would expect, and is yet another example of how depraved and devoid of morality this villain is.
    • Ed and Envy fight each other plenty in the manga, but this continuity adds a personal enmity in that they are related. There always seems to be some level of subtext between them whenever they fight. Why the hell does it always seem like Envy's flirting with Ed whenever he talks to him?
  • Full Metal Panic!:
    • Gauron/Sousuke. The worst part is that the more you read, the squickier (and more canon) it becomes: yes, Gauron was planning to do that with Sousuke. Yes, he really did think those kinds of thoughts about him. And, yes, Sousuke was that age at the time he did...
    • In the Sigma manga, there's the backstory between Sousuke and Kalinin that... can have a lot of Ho Yay subtext (which is the unfortunate result of wearing those Slash Goggles too long). Unfortunately, again, Kalinin is way older than Sousuke, and is supposed to be his father figure. Just the whole way that Kalinin keeps going on and on about how Sousuke and him were "destined" to meet and be together, and how he gushes on about how they're inseparable. Then there's how guilty Kalinin felt towards Sousuke's beautiful mother... only for him to meet Sousuke again and see Sousuke be the spitting image of his mother. He then becomes obsessed with becoming a "happy family" with Sousuke. (It should be noted that Kalinin, unlike Gauron, first and foremost wanted his dead wife and baby back.)
    • The twins Yu Fan and Yu Lan and Gauron. He picked them up and it's heavily implied that he did stuff with them that made them feel that he loved them. But all in all, he isn't shy about showing that he only really seems to care about using them for his plans to ensnare Sousuke/kill Sousuke's love interest. It's made pretty clear to them that the only one he has eyes for is the 16-year-old boy he has an unhealthy obsession with. Despite all this, they are still so incredibly in love and pledge undying loyal to him. "Anything for Sensei" indeed.
    • In one episode of Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu, an elderly man thinks that Tsubaki and Sousuke are going to rape him. In his creepy envisioning of what he thinks is about to happen, roses are used as censors.
  • Tsubaki of Future Diary, while beautiful, is a messed up in the head rape victim who forcefully tongue kisses Yuki to stick it to Yuno.
  • Gankutsuou: Andrea seducing and bedding his own mother, then attempting to rape his half sister. At one point he even implies that he's even going to rape Haidee, however the count steps in and nothing actually happens.
  • Gate 7 has Iemitsu's interaction with Sugihime, a girl he kipnapped for her Seer ability and her being under his forceful control, all bounded in a seal stained with the blood of his Oni's victims, and avoided his Oni eating her just because she's a tool to victory. All this and constantly telling her how cute she is and that he likes her, specially anytime she wishes him dead and insults him.
  • Get Backers: Takuma Fudou's one-sided obsession towards Ban. After Ban ripped his arm off, Fudou became totally obsessed with him, keeping his own rotting, maggot-infested arm with him just so he can remind himself of Ban - which made him feel "incredible chills rising up throughout his body". His passionate dialogue towards Ban includes how he has a "throbbing desire" to kill him, as well as screaming for Ban to "give his body to him," "meet his desires," "quench his thirst and let him enjoy himself." And when Ban starts worrying about his Heterosexual Life Partner Ginji, Fudou gets pissed. "What are you looking at?! Look at me, Takuma Fudou!!" In the Birth Arc Fudou reveals his dislike for Ginji, coming straight out and saying that it's because "when you're around, Midou doesn't even notice me. Midou's eyes are not on me... because you're around!". He then proceeds to try to kill Ginji so that Ban will pay more attention to him. Fudou gets very restless and excited, and feels a great "desire", wondering what it is about this day that he senses is so exciting. It then cuts to Ban sneezing, and exclaiming happily that a big breasted babe must be thinking about or talking about him. Fudou tells Ban that his mind goes blank whenever he sees him, and he can't remember anything other than trying to make Ban give his body to him and meet his desires. He also got majorly pissed at both Hevyn and Shido for interfering with his fight with Ban, and for Hevyn gently putting a shirt on the half naked Ban (an act which seemed to piss him off to the point where he went berserk).
  • Haru and Midori is a yuri manga about a 31-year-old woman who takes in her dead best friend's 14-year-old daughter. Naturally, the idea of the two leads being set up is more than a little disturbing to some people, although others argue that Midori will end up with someone else.
  • Hellsing has Alucard and everyone. He continually talks to Integra like he wants to rape her (or wants her to rape him), gives off rapist vibes to Seras, almost flirts with Anderson on top of their serious Foe Yay, and his slaughter of Rip Van Winkle was dripping with rape metaphors, complete with Rip moaning as he penetrated her with her gun.
  • Hunter × Hunter:
    • Hisoka/Gon and Hisoka/Killua. It doesn't help that he is a Monster Clown, has an unnatural fixation on them to the point of arousal and stared at their butts in one scene. Or that he called them "unripe fruit" that he wants to pluck and destroy once they become stronger warriors, and wondered "why exactly does unripe fruit look so delicious?" In addition to that there's the fact that both are twelve years old and Hisoka is 28.
    • Feitan has his own creepy brand of this, as he wanted to torture Gon slowly and held him down from behind, and combine it with how he reads books by Trevor Brown (to paraphrase from the wikipedia article, the guy draws surreal doll-fetish kiddie-torture-porn).
    • Illumi/Killua & Alluka/Killua goes here, unless you have a strong fetish for both incest & shotacon.
  • Inuyasha: Depraved Homosexual Jakotsu has a crush on Inuyasha. He mostly wants to torture and possibly rape Inuyasha to death.
  • K: The Colorless King makes creepy comments of getting Anna to entertain him hinting that he means to possess someone to rape her and comments that he likes his woman young.
  • Kaguya Hime has lots of this. Some of Akira's admirers are very creepy, and Akira was her adoptive mother's lover.
  • Rune's feelings for Yamato in Karakuridouji Ultimo would be standard Ho Yay if Rune wasn't a creepy Yandere who's way smaller and Bishōnen looking than the more manly and downright huge Yamato, and that Rune almost resorts to Murder the Hypotenuse and If I Can't Have You... tactics in order to have Yamato for himself and resorts to Attempted Rape in chapter 21. Chapter 10 has a rather nightmarish scene where Rune and Yamato are in mecha form. Rune has Yamato forcibly pinned down, in a manner that sends off some disturbing rape vibes, and talks about how it must be hurting Yamato.
  • Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru has Pedro's frequent attempts at raping the pretty-boy protagonist Minoru. The worst had to be when he went pantless at night with his junk out in order to try to rape Minoru.
  • Kill la Kill: Ragyo Kiryuin is really touchy feely with her daughters Satsuki and Ryuko, with one scene in episode 13 where she fondles Satsuki being very uncomfortable, especially since Satsuki's lack of reaction implies it's a regular occurrence, followed by an even more blatant scene in episode 16 where she molests her when they're bathing together under the pretense of "purifying" her. One episode opens with Ragyo having an apparent threesome with Nui (whose relationship with her is also dripping with Incest Subtext to the point of calling Ragyo "mama") and Ryuko, her other daughter who she discarded as an infant after the latter appeared to fail during her experiments. The scene might be a metaphor for the Mind Rape they're inflicting on Ryuko, which probably makes it worse.
  • Koharu No Hibi: Koharu's obsession with Akira. Her actions vary from affectionate (wanting to hold hands constantly) to creepy (the infamous recorder sucking scene, the scene where she sucked on his discarded bottle of tea, licking a picture of him on her phone) to downright bizarre (being disappointed that their literal viewpoints are not exactly the same).
  • Legend of the Blue Wolves features Captain Continental/anyone but especially his lusting after Jonathan who he beats up, tortures, and eventually rapes. He even seems to go the Murder the Hypotenuse route as he was willing to do anything to separate Jonathan and his love interest Leonard.
  • Loveless: Seimei is one hell of a creepy Yandere towards his brother Ritsuka.
  • In MÄR, we have Alviss/Phantom. Normally, with the Phantom's attempts to kiss Alviss and his obsession with him and lack of personal space around him you'd think this would just be Guy-on-Guy Is Hot but not when Phantom brainwashes Alviss into staying by his side forever, licks the tears from his face and attempts to kill him. The Phantom is also clearly insane.
  • Monster:
    • The love and devotion that the Gonkish Roberto has for his boss Johan. Also, Johan's behavior towards his twin sister Anna is pretty darn creepy. Roberto is also shown having sex with two woman, and a fat ugly prostitute once comments on how well endowed Roberto is.
    • Johan's fixation on the much older Tenma has a messed up mind game feel to it.
  • Mother Keeper has this with Silas towards Zelik. Zelik sells people and Silas is a frequent buyer, but he is shown to make creepy comments about wanting Zelik to sell himself to him to Zelik himself. Zelik tends to brush it off but it's rather unsettling that this is a common comment. Later on when Silas kidnaps and beats Zelik he threatens to have him raped by several men, causing Zelik to panic.
  • Nabari no Ou features a rather creepy scene where Hattori is practically hitting on Yoite - "You really are diligent and smart... as well as beautiful."
  • Naruto
    • There is much suspicion among fans that Orochimaru wants Sasuke's body for reasons more... personal than simply having a powerful new vessel. The Chapter 345 manga cover that featured a smiling Orochimaru literally wrapping his tongue and arms around Sasuke with the caption to the side reading "Within these arms. At the end of this tongue. The future that I raised", or the anime intro with a nude Sasuke wrapped in Orochimaru's pet snakes with Orochimaru's eyes watching the image, make it so much worse.
    • Orochimaru's apparent fondness for randomly caressing the faces of little kids (such as Kimimaro), or trying to wrap his ridiculously long phallic-looking tongue around people's bodies, or referring to Naruto and Sasuke as "cute and beautiful", or thinking "Your body will be mine soon, Sasuke-kun." Then there's his final fight with Sasuke, in which Orochimaru sweats and struggles against being pinned against the wall before reverting to his true form, a giant snake comprised of a bunch of tinier snakes, and trying to wrap his snakes and curl himself around/smother a half-naked Sasuke while screaming "Give me your body, Sasuke-kun!"
    • In Episode 53 of the original anime, Jiraiya briefly pervs on Naruto. (Japanese) "You! You're quite sexy when you're naked." (English) "You know... you have quite a tight sexy little body."
    • Kabuto/Orochimaru is nowhere near wholesome. It gets worse—Kabuto has absorbed Orochimaru's remains so Orochimaru is literally inside of Kabuto.
    • Kabuto/Naruto. Kabuto has a peculiar creepy fixation on Naruto and (in the anime) has called him "cute."
    • Hidan/Shikamaru. Just watch Hidan's reactions when he got Shikamaru alone in the woods. It almost felt like an Attempted Rape was about to go down. And Hidan looked to be almost orgasming after stabbing Shikamaru.
    • Naruto and Filler Villain Fuka. She makes quite a few suggestive comments to him and tries to kiss him while ignoring his personal space but we mustn't forget that she's actually just a living head of hair and that when she tries to kiss Naruto she's literally trying to suck his soul/chakra out.
    • Kabuto/Sasuke. In Chapter 581 he attempted to get Sasuke to join him and said he'll be like a big brother to him and never leave his side after just attempting to eat him nonetheless with a wide snake like mouth. Lord, No Yay.
    • The non-canon movie Road to Ninja shows a parallel universe version of Neji who has no qualms checking out his younger cousin in the baths.
    • The canon movie The Last: Naruto the Movie makes all of the previous instances look subtle in comparison. The movie's Big Bad, Toneri Otsutsuki, is a complete Yandere towards Hinata, to the point where he tries to kill Naruto because he knows they're in love with each other, force Hinata into marrying him, and use her to repopulate the Earth after he crashes the moon into it. This is on top of him also kidnapping Hinata's little sister Hanabi and ripping both of her eyes out. It gets even worse—when Toneri realizes that Hinata accepting his marriage proposal was a ruse so that she could destroy his Tenseigan, he hypnotizes her into being one of his mindless puppets. To top it all off, this fanfic writer pointed out that the wedding dress Toneri forces Hinata to wear is far too elaborate for a single person to put on, hinting that Toneri had Hinata stripped naked by his puppets and likely did other things to her when he was alone with her, considering he has no problems whatsoever trying to forcibly kiss her at their wedding ceremony when she's in her brainwashed state and, therefore, is unable to consent.
  • Negima! Magister Negi Magi features secondary villain Tsukuyomi. She starts as a mere Punch-Clock Villain with shades of Psychopathic Manchild and a crush on her ex-sempai Setsuna Sakurazaki, but as time passes, she becomes really, *really*, creepily obsessed with Setsuna. And also seems to derive sexual pleasure from murder. Plus, there's the fact that it was heavily implied that she was going to rape Setsuna when she hit Setsuna with a Clothing Damage spell, followed by pinning her on the ground, and slowly and deliberately cutting off Setsuna's Sarashi bra. Coming from a bespectacled little blonde Yandere in a frilly Victorian gown makes this even more creepy.
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion is rife with this, which is unsurprising given the cast. The only "safe" choices would be shipping secondary/tertiary characters with each other, only because they look normal in comparison.
    • The series does everything it can to imply that there is something going on between Gendo and Rei (a man in his 40s and a 14-year-old girl, respectively), not the least of which is Rei being a Replacement Goldfish for his dead wife, from whom she was partially cloned, and the fact that late in the series it's revealed that Gendo and Yui considered naming a potential daughter Rei, upping the incestuous subtext. As with everything from the series, End of Evangelion ramps this up by having Rei spend almost all her time around Gendo completely naked.
    • Misato and Shinji are basically a Gender Flipped Gendo and Rei. Made worse by the fact that in the movie she actually kisses him in an attempt to snap him out of a Heroic BSoD. It does not help.
    • Asuka and Shinji can fall into this at times, especially due to that scene in the movie, in which he masturbates over her comatose body.
    • In Shinji Ikari Raising Project, Gendo simply loves Shinji so dearly he wants to bear-hug him from behind or take a bath with him. Even without factoring in their relationship in the main series this is disturbing.
    • The director's cut of the anime also contains a scene where Asuka, a 14-year-old girl, throws herself at Kaji, who's twice her age, out of desperation for attention, but he rebuffs her advances since even though he as a reputation as a Handsome Lech she's way too young for him. To make it worse it's implied that he served as a surrogate father figure for her after her mother's death.
  • No. 6
    • In chapter 6, an ominous greasy ugly old corpse collector comes up to Sion (a younger Bishōnen Nice Guy) and hits on him saying "You're very pretty like a doll" and promises him meat and drink.
    • A top No. 6 official makes unwanted advances on Dogkeeper in one scene because he thinks she's a prostitute. He also hits on Nezumi.
  • Noein pretty much is this trope toward Haruka. When he finally reveals his true form to her, he variously drapes his arms around her shoulders and touches her face, and at one point he asks her to "become one" with him to further his plan. He's naked too, except for the white covering he normally wears but has mostly removed by this point. What makes this all the worse is that Noein is one version of Haruka's love, Yuu, from the future, who had gone mad with grief after losing her in a car crash—but in present circumstances he's still much older than her, and evil, and she's twelve.
  • PandoraHearts:
    • Isla Yura, the ugliest person to ever exist in the manga, fanboying disgustingly over Jack. Oz, the person carrying Jack’s soul, cannot be anymore annoyed to have Yura stalking him over and over in the second ceremony of coming age.
    • Vincent's Ho Yay towards Gilbert can be this considering they're brothers and he's a messed-up yandere for Gil to the point of wanting to end his existence because he thinks Gil will be happier.
    • Lotti and Vincent's Foe Yay. Both are attractive but are not quite right in the head. He comes on to her, she makes remarks about mutilating him, and he gets quite excited and hugs her close while releasing hearts.
  • Osanai's obsession with Paprika which leads to unwanted groping, touching and Shameful Strip which literally means he's tearing Paprika's skin off her while spouting sweet nothings followed by an attempted rape scene. Also, his implied relationship with the Chairman, who is an ugly old guy.
  • Penguindrum:
    • Episode 14. Two cute girls (Yuri and Ringo) bonding and spending a whole day together in an onsen? Oh yes, please. A mentally-broken Yuri drugging up Ringo, stripping both of them naked and then trying to rape her, while mentally repeating how much she hates herself due to her body issues and loneliness? Definitely not sexy.
    • Yuri's father and Yuri, as revealed in Episode 15. He carves her body with a chisel to make her "look beautiful" and be worthy of his love, while repeatedly telling her that she's ugly and he can't love ugly things. And this is not counting all of the hints that he sexually abused Yuri as well.
  • Princess Jellyfish:
    • Any scene with Kuranosuke's uncle, the PM, lusting after the cross-dressed Kuranosuke.
    • The thirty-year-old Shuu's attraction to the 18-year-old Tsukimi can be this depending on your interpretation. Kuranosuke lampshades this.
  • Reborn! (2004):
    • Chrome's Foe Yay with Glo Xinia. Consider how during Glo Xinia's fight with Chrome he grabbed her hard enough to cause her pain, kept getting in her face, and told her things like: "You seem to like being touched by men. Your blushing cannot betray your desires." "Give me MORE!" (after hearing her screams of pain) and "It's time to eat... that ring and you!" It's hinted he might've done something to her had Mukuro not shown up, allowing her time to escape. When fighting Mukuro he comes out with this line: "Is that girl so precious to you? Then I'm going to take my share of such a precious girl right before your eyes! This could just be the best situation, don't you think? My appetite for that girl just keeps getting better!" and "Don't worry Chrome, I will take good care of you for MUKURO TO SEE!"
    • In episode 140/chapter 226 TYL!Xanxus's indirect innuendo that he wants Tsuna. He only wants Vongola when it's at it's strongest. And when is it at it's strongest? When Tsuna is leading them. Can get a bit creepy when you realize this is a 34-year-old man (granted, in a 26-year-old body) talking about a 14-year-old boy.
    • Lussuria, who's openly gay, is insinuated to have necrophiliac tendencies as well. In his words his favorite bodies are the "wasted, cold, unmoving" ones. Ryohei goes topless during his fight against Lussuria and this only serves to make Lussuria his hardcore fanboy. Lussuria openly ogles Ryohei's muscular physique and refers to his body as "pretty nice," says that he's "just his type" and promptly decides to take him home and make him a part of his "collection"... after he's kicked the shit out of him that is. Fortunately Ryohei kicks his ass instead, so Lussuria pretty much failed at the endeavor.
  • Revolutionary Girl Utena
    • Siblings Akio and Anthy are established to regularly have sex - and it's a very unhealthy dubcon (at best) relationship, to say the least. The way it's portrayed in the movie version is no better: Akio drugged Anthy's drink and then took advantage of her sexually, later stabbing her out of panic after it turned out she was never actually asleep before falling out a window to his death.
    • The movie's no slouch when it comes to this trope, as it also shows that Touga was raped by his adoptive father as a child. Ugh.
    • And the sex scene between Akio and Utena in episode 33, given that she's only in eighth grade and he's way older than her, plus the dubious consent and... unsexy topic of discussion. You won't be thinking of sandwiches the same way again for a good while afterwards.
    • Just about all of Akio's sexual relationships are this trope. Besides the aforementioned incest with Anthy and sex scene with Utena, he has two further counts of statutory rape with Kozue (13) and Touga (17), plus he's sleeping with his fiancée's mother. Perhaps his least offensive relationship is with Tokiko, and even that's not saying much because the whole point of him seducing her was to spite Professor Nemuro and ultimately drive him to arson.
    • Kozue and Anthy's car scene in episode 26 is kind of creepy, since out of nowhere Kozue appears to start seducing a blank-faced Anthy in the car - in the middle of Miki's duel.
    • Kozue and Miki's entire relationship. They're twins, Kozue has tried to kiss Miki when he was asleep and when he's awake and has an unhealthy obsession with him. This leads to a scene in the movie when they're in the bath together and she holds a razor to his throat when he refused to tell her something about his personal affairs.
    • In one episode, Miki's piano teacher is hinted to have a less than savoury interest in him, and he's inappropriately touchy-feely with him when they talk. Kozue has clearly noticed, as it later turns out that she'd previously shoved the teacher down the stairs for it.
    • Nanami's obsession with her older brother Touga. She's a major Yandere for him and she once killed a kitten that she had gotten for him for his birthday because he paid more attention to it than her. He also suddenly tries to rape her in Akio's car at one point, which she fights off in horror, and he gets angry because if sex isn't what she wanted, then what does she want? She's also shown watching him when he's taking a shower and Touga jokingly asks her if she wants a kiss and to join him in the shower.
  • Sailor Moon
    • The infatuation Dark Lady has for Mamoru, to the point of kissing. She's actually the young girl Chibi-usa aged up and turned to the dark side and Mamoru is her father.
    • Prince Diamond's obsession with Sailor Moon where it's hinted he undressed her while she was unconscious and places numerous Forceful Kisses on her.
  • Seraph of the End:
    • Ferid's attitude towards Yuu, Krul, and Mika carries serious rape undertones. Made worse in chapter 46 when he spends the chapter playing mind games with Mika and Yuu by showing them their dead family member (Akane's) head before flirting with Yuu, caressing his lips, and biting him against Yuu and Mika's wishes. Yuu doesn't have a pleasant reaction to Ferid biting him either compared to when Mika bit him.
    • Cress's way of holding Mitsuba down while forcibly drinking her blood while Mitsuba screams at her to stop.
  • At one point in Shiki, there's a flashback to the childhood of Beady-Eyed Loser Masao, which many fans have taken to imply that he had a crush on his sister-in-law Chizuko—despite being roughly seven years old (and a Creepy Child) at the time the flashback took place.
  • Shugo Chara!, where famous Idol Singer Utau Hoshina forcefully kisses the mysterious cat-boy Ikuto Tsukuyomi, much to the shock and horror of Amu, Kukai and their Charas (to quote Ran, "It's an adult's world!"). Worse, she's his sister.
  • Slam Dunk: Good lord, do Akagi and Uozumi have this. It's been mentioned that Uozumi talks about defeating Akagi everyday and from what we've seen, this is probably not an exaggeration. He almost instantly took an interest in Akagi when he first saw him, cheered him on during the Kainan game, and his rivalry with him is his main motivation for improving. Even after quitting basketball he still travels all the way to Hiroshima just to see Akagi play and even gives him advice in the middle of a game. On Akagi's side he considers Uozumi the better player (despite what everyone else says) and has a great deal of respect for him. Their relationship is even mocked at times, such as when they hug and cry on each other's shoulder, only to show that they're both far too ugly for this to be anything but Fan Disservice.
  • Soul Eater:
    • Ragnarok and Crona, especially since Ragnarok himself is only vaguely humanoid, looking like sort of muscular, demonic muppet. Unfortunately, the overtones are there, with Ragnarok acting extremely possessive of Crona, and constantly molesting and harassing them (pulling up their clothes, showing underwear).
    • Noah/Kid — while the original speculations of this turning into canon Nightmare Fuel seem to have been avoided (Noah's a joke, despite a promising start), the bondage suggestions and Noah's lasting first impression don't help. Gopher's no better with his rage against the shinigami.
    • Giriko/Maka with Giriko being way older than Maka and his intentions of wanting to rape and kill her.
    • Medusa, a very beautiful and cruel villainess. Medusa acting all seductive towards her old partner Stein? Mind Game Ship, Foe Yay and Interplay of Sex and Violence, if you're into that. Medusa acting all seductive towards her old partner Stein while in the body of a five-year-old little girl, which she possessed a short while ago ? No Yay. Also, chapter 22 has Medusa's armless torso crawling up onto Stein's back and attempting to bite his neck. Made even creepier when she whispers "I love you~" before he stabs her through the face with Death Scythe.
  • Sword Art Online has anything with Sugou, a megalomaniac with an unhealthy obsession (and total willingness to rape the comatose body) of Asuna.
  • In the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Compilation Movie Lagann-Hen, the Anti-Spiral King looms over Nia and moves towards her after it entangles her with tentacles, disintegrating her clothes before it begins disintegrating her.
  • Texhnolyze
    • Toyama and his father. It's made pretty blatant that Toyama was sexually abused by his father as a child, and even though he's a big, tough gangster now, his father still manages to extort sexual favours from him from time to time.
    • And the random member of the Racan who hits on the underage Ran and tells her he 'll "show her a good time".
  • Tiger & Bunny: Maverick is really possessive of Barnaby to the point of drugging him, mindraping him several times and isolating him in his private mansion. Keep in mind the Power Perversion Potential of having memory-altering Next powers.
  • Tokyo Ghoul
    • Tsukiyama's relationship with Kaneki starts out as this, blurring the lines between amorous and murderous intentions. He views Kaneki as the ultimate meal, and seeks to lure him into traps. Later on, he pretends to have changed his ways in order to become close to Kaneki again and begins working for him, while biding his time until the day he can feast. Later on, the No Yay evolves into genuine Ho Yay as a result of Tsukiyama's Character Development, with him finally admitting to himself that Kaneki had become someone he genuinely cared about.
    • Kanae and Tsukiyama, in the sequel. Cousins from a family that suffers from health issues as a result of Royal Inbreeding, Kanae is violently jealous and possessive of her cousin/master. She constantly threatens and lies to Tsukiyama's Muggle Best Friend, spends months hiding Kaneki's survival from Tsukiyama out of jealousy, and finally goes off the deep end and repeatedly tries to kill Kaneki out of jealousy.
    • Romo's crush on Kaneki. She waxes romantic about wanting to ruin Kaneki's life so he'll go back to being the tragic and beautiful Kaneki she adores. Even Nico thinks she's nuts.
    • Nico has a fondness for the insane and ugly Yamori due to Yamori's deranged and badass nature. It started from when they were mentioned to have met and "hit if off" in a bar, and in the anime when Yamori punches a whole in his side, he seems to consider it flirting, even stating they should save the rest till they get home while holding his hand. He also has commented on how good-looking he found Kaneki and Ayato.
    • Yamori and Kaneki with Yamori torturing Kaneki by continually snapping off his fingers and toes (they regenerate), getting physically close to him, and putting a centipede in his ear. He tells Kaneki that ever since he saw him he wanted to bring him to his torture room. He later screams that he'll eat Kaneki and make a bloody mess out of him. Kaneki eats him instead.
    • Torso and Mutsuki, in the sequel. Torso is a deviant that kidnaps scarred women, keeping their decapitated and dismembered bodies as his "lovers". During their first meeting, he violently attacks Mutsuki and tears his shirt open to confirm whether or not his victim is a woman. After their first encounter, Torso becomes completely obsessed and believes that Mutsuki is the one that will finally make him feel whole — he suffers from a condition that causes a Lackof Empathy, causing him to view other people as things rather than living beings. In his diary entry, he talks about masturbating to the thought of keeping a limbless Mutsuki as his lover. Eventually, he's able to capture Mutsuki and shows off the limbs he's removed from Mutsuki while saying they are getting married. He also has put a wedding ring on his cut off hand. Weeks later, Torso violently beats Mutsuki for not smiling at him, screaming that his prisoner has no choice but to love him. There are also some fairly disturbing implications of other torments going on....
    • Nutcracker seems to be equal opportunity when it comes to who she finds attractive, primarily preying on men but calling a female Investigator beautiful before eating her face. She also licks Mutsuki on the face during an auction.
    • Eto gets this after she kidnaps and tortures Kanae in a fairly sexual manner. After breaking Kanae down by taunting her over her obsession with her cousin, Eto subjects her to lengthy torture with needles and thread. She praises Kanae as being "cute", after having sewn her eyes open and her mouth shut. She does this while they're both naked and she has her hands on Kanae's body.
    • Kurona and Shiro seemed to have some Incest Subtext going on with both being incredibly close and protective of one another. Then came chapter 80 where Hanbee is defeated by Kuro, and saved at the last minute by Juuzou. Kuro celebrates that she can show her sister a "suffering Rei", and Juuzou is confused because he was sure that Shiro had died of her wounds. Kuro is angry at him being rude by ignoring her sister, and pulls open her cloak to reveal a horrific skull-like face merged into her stomach that is speaking quietly. Kuro and Shiro have apparently been merged into some kind of horrific monster.
    • Mutsuki and Kaneki, especially after the former displays how far she would go in order to claim him as hers.
  • Trigun: Vash and his Evil Twin Knives. Knives is one disturbed son of a bitch with a brother complex, and his introduction scene in the manga involves Full-Frontal Assault and looks like man-on-man rape.
  • Tsubasa -RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE-: Fai/Chii was actually a major fandom ship until the late-chapter revelation that he had designed her to look like his mother'', and then it went from odd but cute to absolute nope.
  • Vampire Knight: After noticing Yuuki's resemblance to her mother Juri, Yuuki's uncle Rido (who was in love with Juri) changed his plans from devouring Yuuki to keeping her as a substitute for Juri.
  • When Marnie Was There: Anna and Marnie's relationship instantly goes from "sweet and adorable Romantic Two-Girl Friendship" to "helluva awkward Relationship Writing Fumble" with The Reveal of Marnie being the ghost of Anna's grandmother.
  • Wolf Guy - Wolfen Crest
    • Haguro has creepy Foe Yay towards Inugami. It's creepy because Haguro is ugly, nightmare fuel incarnate, and is Ax-Crazy.
    • The scene where Haguro decides to up his freakiness by kissing a battered Chiba, taking that opportunity to tear out his tongue, defecate on him and then rape him. All because Inugami happened to run into him in the street earlier. And that's even before what he and his Yakuza do to poor Aoshika-sensei.
    • Ryuuko's and Haguro's whole relationship.
  • The (written after the Anime) Wolf's Rain Manga had a villain ( Lord Darcia 3rd) effectively Mind Raping the confused Half Blood bitchnote  Blue Yaiden in the latter chapters.
  • Yu-Gi-Oh!:
    • Yu-Gi-Oh! GX: Yubel's stalking of Judai/Jaden. Yubel was sent into space when Judai was a child and suffered from exposure to the Light of Ruin and tortured by it. Yubel went insane and believed that Judai sent them out to suffer as an act of love and spends the entirety of season 3 trying to make his life a living hell as their own twisted and messed-up act of love towards him. This includes putting his life in danger, obsessively trying to kill and murder most of his friends out of psychotic jealously, and turning him evil and making him live with the guilt of killing masses of people. They get better after making a Heel–Face Turn and even become an Official Couple with Judai, but all of those above still make many viewers fidget uncomfortably, and is also why Yubel was heavily subjected to Die for Our Ship in their earlier years.
    • Much like its anime counterpart, the manga version of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V hints at a romance between Yuya and Yuzu, with them flirting and showing interest in the other. Unlike the anime however, this Yuya turns out to be Yuzu's Kid from the Future, and she gets together with Yuya's dad.
  • Yuri Kuma Arashi
    • Yurika is a Psycho Lesbian yandere to Reia and most likely her adoptive father since she killed both of them to "box them up and keep them forever". Due to believing that she'll only feel fulfilled by eating Kureha, the daughter to whom Reia gave all her love, and the former's very Strong Family Resemblance to the latter, she develops into a yandere for Kureha too to the point where she looks to be doing Attempted Rape on Kureha when she has her alone and tries to eat her.
    • The ending of the picture book. What is probably meant to be beautiful is kind of ruined when one realizes that it's essentially Reia drawing a children's book of her single digit-year-old daughter and female bear friend kissing and getting together. And it's explicitly stated several times to be "their future". Which means that Reia was shipping two prepubescent girls together.
  • Yuureitou: Marube with anyone. To start, Marube was in love with Tetsuo's real mother Onatsu. Now, he lusts after his biological child Tetsuo because of his great resemblance to her. Later we find out he wants to have a Brain Transplant with Tetsuo so he can "become" Onatsu and have sex with his own body. Not only that, if the surgery succeeds he plans to have child with Tetsuo so he can switch brains with his own children over and over again and thus create an "eternal love" with Onatsu by forever living on in a body with both her and his blood. Also, he has harrassed Taichi when he was Disguised in Drag and when he was dressed normally as a guy, sexually abused his adopted daughter, and tried to sleep with his biological, transgender son because got off from doing so. He later attempts to rape Taichi in order to drive him away from Tetsuo and is shown kissing and trying to sleep with the bones of his dead wife.
  • Yu Yu Hakusho
    • Karasu spends the last parts of the Dark Tournament coming on to Kurama; "Human bodies are so frail... I know you fear what my touch could do to you... yet maybe you also want to know it." All this while stroking his hair from behind. He also wants to own Kurama and considers torturing and killing him slowly the most intimate way of doing so.
    • The Big Bad of the next story arc, Shinobu Sensui is seen taking the Game Master, Amanuma, to dinner, coming to his home in order to spend some time with him, and a follow-up scene which shows Sensui with black angel wings wrapped around Amanuma, who is nuzzling his head into his arms. Considering that Amanuma is 11 years old along with a heavily implication that Sensui had spent the night with him...

    Comic Books 
  • The Superman comics provide quite a few examples; Clark Kent and Lori Lemaris (a mermaid), Superman and Supergirl, Supergirl and Comet the Super Horse (a centaur cursed to be a horse), Lois Lane and Comet the Super Horse, and Krypto and Lana Lang in at least one story. Then there's the not infrequent subtext between Supes and Lex Luthor, which becomes even more blatant when you realize that Superboy was made of a combination of their DNA.
  • Batman:
    • Batman and The Joker get some (or lots) of Foe Yay Depending on the Writer, with the Joker almost in love with Batman in his own twisted way. Canonically, the Joker wants to sexually violate Batman's corpse.
    • Batman Eternal tried to set up a relationship between Red Hood (Jason Todd) and Batgirl (Barbara Gordon). Fan reaction was not good, with people citing how straight up weird it is that Jason harbours a longtime crush on his adoptive brother's (Dick Grayson, the first Robin) longtime on-again off-again girlfriend, and, with Dick "dead" at the time, the implication that Babs is using Jason as a Replacement Goldfish if she reciprocated. Thankfully, she never did, and the plot thread was ended in that same series.
    • Despite a lot of old jokes, fans tend to react very negatively to any hint of Batman and Robin being an item. Not because it's gay - both have a plethora of popular slash pairings - but because Robin is generally depicted as Bruce Wayne's surrogate son, with later Robins like Tim Drake and Damian Wayne being his adopted or biological son respectively. Thus, shipping Batman and Robin comes with serious Parental Incest overtones.
    • Following on the examples above, Batman is occassionally shipped with Batgirl. Fans generally hate it, since Barbara Gordon generally has a major relationship with his adoptive son, is one of his students, is much younger than him, and is the daughter of one of Batman's closest friends. When Batman: The Killing Joke had a Batman/Batgirl sex scene, the backlash overshadowed the entire film.
  • Johnny C. and Jimmy a.k.a. "Mmy". Jimmy is quite unattractive and has a rather unhealthy obsession with what Johnny does. Johnny hates his guts because Jimmy attempted to replicate his style of murder by choosing his targets along with raping and killing a girl in Johnny's name.
  • In-universe in Secret Six: Black Alice and Ragdoll. Black Alice's attraction to Ragdoll and the lengths she goes to start a relationship with him squicks out everyone on the team. Including Ragdoll.
  • Ultimate Marvel
    • The Ultimates gets in- and out-of-universe No Yay by taking the Brother–Sister Incest Subtext between Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch from the main Marvel universe and making it official. When Captain America voiced his disgust and got chewed out by Wasp out for being behind the times, readers were apparently meant to side with Wasp. They did not.
    • Ultimate Spider-Man: Bendis played up the Like Brother and Sister angle with Peter and Gwen so much that this was the reaction when they finally did hook up.
  • The Judas Contract gets in-universe hebephilia with a canonical sexual relationship between Slade and Terra. Slade, a middle-aged man, and Terra, a 16-year-old.
  • In the Angel comics, Illyria (an ancient God-King who stole the body of one of Angel's friends, killing her in the process) decides that Connor (Angel's 19-year-old son) would be an acceptable person to procreate with, since it's her mating season. Angel is not pleased and neither is Connor.
  • Mr Sinister has an obsession with Cyclops' genes that would normally lead to Foe Yay, except for the fact that Scott lived in Sinister's Orphanage of Fear as a young boy (from around the age of eleven) and underwent Mind Rape and experiments from the supervillain. As Sinister's treatment of Adult Cyclops is incredibly homoerotic, and a large amount of their interactions involve him touching his face and gazing at it admiringly, it becomes very hard not to think that he did the same when Scott was in his care.
  • The Smurfs: Papa Smurf and Smurfette. In the comic books and the cartoon show, the idea that Papa Smurf would have an amorous interest in Smurfette was just all levels of creepy and wrong. Thankfully averted in the Sony Pictures live-action film series, where Papa Smurf treats Smurfette as a step-daughter.

  • Aladdin: Jafar and Jasmine. Jafar is old and ugly and Jasmine is a young beautiful princess. Jafar wants to marry Jasmine (to gain the powers of the sultan but still...) and Jasmine has to kiss him in one scene to try to keep him from discovering Aladdin. Jafar orders the Genie to make Jasmine fall in love with him, and calls her "pussycat" and "my dear". Iago (who suggested the idea of Jafar marrying Jasmine in the first place) and Abu both make disgusted sounds when Jasmine kisses Jafar, and Aladdin also looks Squicked out.
  • In Despicable Me, Vector's flirty attitude toward Gru and Gru's obsession with outclassing him starts off as just regular old Foe Yay. It crosses the line into this trope, however, when Vector keeps this up after he kidnaps Gru's children and holds them hostage.
  • Frozen: Hans' relationship with Anna and Elsa, which extends to shipping. Hans canonically made Anna fall in Love at First Sight with him so that he could manipulate her to take her kingdom, which he almost managed by trying to kill Elsa and letting Anna freeze to death by refusing to give her true love's kiss and mocking her with "Oh Anna, if only there was someone who loved you." (she got better after her Heroic Sacrifice). He also guilt trips Elsa into not defending herself while trying to capture her ("Don't be the monster they think you are!") which causes her to panic and hold still long enough for him to knock her out, chain her up, and lock her in a dungeon with the intention of putting her on trial and executing her in order to become a Villain with Good Publicity.
  • Frollo's sexual obsession with Esmerelda in The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
  • Kent Mansley's behavior towards Hogarth in The Iron Giant just screams of child grooming. Takes an undue interest in a child? Check. Gains the trust of the child's guardian to get close to the child? Check. Constantly follows the child around and gives them no privacy? Check. Uses a combination of persuasive and coercive tactics to get what he wants from the child? Check mate
  • Ursula and Ariel from Disney's The Little Mermaid (1989). What with her calling Ariel things like "my child," "angelfish," "my dear sweet child," "sweet cakes," "poor little princess," and "my sweet," and her tendency to invade Ariel's personal space. As well as telling her if she can't get Prince Eric to kiss her on the third day, then as a consequence, she'll "belong to me"/"will be mine." And at one point in the 'Poor Unfortunate Souls' song she moves her tentacle across Ariel's chest, with Ariel having to push it off. She was originally intended to be Ariel's aunt, and was actually retconned to be such in the subsequent Screen-to-Stage Adaptation, which probably only makes it worse.
  • Scar and Nala in The Lion King, particularly in the Broadway rendition. In the song The Madness of King Scar, he all but tries to rape Nala and force her to give him heirs. Keep in mind that earlier in both versions, Nala was still a cub while Scar was always clearly an adult right from the first scene he was in. So the age difference between them can't be small, even for natural lion-aging years.
  • There is some of this with Sally and Dr. Finklestein in The Nightmare Before Christmas possibly. In the DVD Commentary, Tim Burton refers to Sally as a daughter — yet there's lines in-film like "You're mine, you know!" and "You can make other creations!" that really doesn't sound like a rebellious-daughter/overprotective-dad relationship, but like something else entirely. Consider that the creation Dr. Finklestein makes to replace Sally looks awfully like a wife — that looks exactly like him — and that an alternate ending had Oogie Boogie be Dr. Finklestein, jealous that Sally chose Jack over him. In an earlier script, the father/daughter relationship was a lot more obvious with lines like "I'm grown up now. I'll have to leave sometime"... yet there are bits like The scientist smiles, feeling Sally under his sway again that sounds rather creepy.
  • Devon and Cornwall, two heads of the same dragon, in Quest for Camelot, particularly at the very end of the movie. There's also the implication that their parents were married cousins.
    Devon: Frankly, we're the reason cousins shouldn't marry.
  • In Rango, Rattlesnake Jake disturbingly behaves in a somewhat molester-ish manner towards Beans, coiling around her and licking his face. That's really creepy.
  • Rise of the Guardians: Pitch's interactions with Jamie and the other children towards the end of the film can come across as molester-ish, especially the tone of voice with which he taunts and threatens them. This vibe is also present in the scene where he enters Cupcake's room and corrupts her dreams.
  • Throughout the Toy Story series, most toys abandoned by their owners behave like rejected or jilted lovers. The song "When She Loved Me" in Toy Story 2 is, as the title suggests, a love song out of context (and just a bit in context, too).
  • A Troll in Central Park has Stanley, the titular troll, getting a kiss from a toddler girl named Rosie. He literally flies into the air screaming with joy and some green energy coming from his lower regions. Yeah...
  • Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope were erroneously referred to as love interests in early media reports. Then it turned out she was a kid. And the size of his (very large) fist. And basically his sister/daughter character.

    Films — Live-Action 
  • Happens in-story in 13, when Mason Freeland walks into a store with a friend, and the two of them see a pretty girl in low-rise jeans and visible thong panties leaning over the counter, facing away from them. Mason calls out to her: "Oh sweetie, back that ass up," while his friend adds "I'd like to see how that thong looks on my bedroom floor." When she turns around, they see that the girl is, in fact, Mason's little sister Tracy. Mason is clearly horrified, while his friend continues to hit on her.
  • Alien: Resurrection features a scene where an Alien is holding Ripley in its arms and carrying her to the Queen's lair. She's not afraid of it, and embraces the creature. The sequence is shot and framed as if it were a love scene. Nevertheless, the xenomorphs are utterly inhuman monsters that face-rape people and have killed almost everyone that Ripley ever knew or loved.
  • In Blank Check, there are romantic overtones between a woman in her early thirties and a little boy who’s eleven. She’s an FBI agent working undercover at a bank and he’s a kid who gets a million dollars when a crook almost runs him over. He claims he works (at eleven) for an older man who wants to meet her. They go on a date and she kisses him on the mouth and tells him to look her up in a few years and it’s not played in a negative light.
  • Blue Velvet: Psycho drug-addicted gangster rapist Frank Booth/innocent wholesome college boy Jeffrey Beaumont. With Frank of course being the supplier of the depraved subtext.
    Frank: (to Jeffrey) Pretty... pretty... pretty... pretty... Pretty!
  • Child's Play: Chucky and Andy.
    • May have started when Chucky tells his former voodoo teacher before killing him:
      Chucky: Well, it's been fun, but I have to go. I have a date with a six-year-old boy.
    • There's also the fact that in the second film he bound and gagged Andy to a bed, and he laid on top of him in order to perform the soul transferring.
  • Marissa's obsession with Hanna. In addition, some of Hanna's interactions with Erik come off as romantic. For reference, Marissa is a CIA agent, Hanna is the teenage girl she is hunting down, and Erik is Hanna's father.
  • Harry Potter: During their "girl talk," Bellatrix pins Hermione to the floor and it looks like she's raping her. She also tortures her by carving the word "Mudblood" into her arm.
  • Nuada and Nuala in Hellboy II: The Golden Army. They're Half-Identical Twins with Twin Telepathy and Synchronization, which makes it nigh-impossible for Nuala to hide herself and the MacGuffin from her villainous brother, no matter how much she wants to. Then along came Nuada's "Father tried so hard to shield your heart from mine." The same father he murdered, forcing Nuala to go into hiding in the first place. Even worse, Word of God says that all that incestuous subtext was intentional. That sort of thing isn't unusual in real life Irish myth.
  • The Interview: David Skylark and Kim John-un kissing and becoming close friends is disturbing considering Kim is the leader of North Korea and is a crazy master manipulator.
  • Halloween has some creepy interactions between Michael, a homicidal maniac, his two sisters, and other girls. With his one sister he caresses her leg when she's in an undressed state and pretends to be her boyfriend before killing her. His violent murder of the other girls occurs when they're also naked or in a state of undress and he's chasing them while brandishing a knife. Then there's the fixation he has with his sister Laurie.
  • Kick-Ass 2: Dave and Mindy kissing, to fans of the comic book where Mindy is still 12 years old while in the film she's 15. Invoked in-universe, when Katie and her friend think Mindy is breaking up with Dave, they both call him a pedophile.
  • Jareth/Sarah from Labyrinth. Nearly forty David Bowie in criminally tight pants asking a fourteen-year-old Jennifer Connelly to stay with him forever. And a Freeze-Frame Bonus shows that Sarah's mother ran off with the real David Bowie, adding some interesting subtext to the whole situation. And according to Jim Henson it was 100% intentional.
    David Bowie embodies a certain maturity, with his sexuality, his disturbing aspect, all sorts of things that characterize the adult world.
  • Annie Wilkes and Paul Sheldon in Misery, especially in the book. She's an ex-nurse Loony Fan of the disillusioned writer who saved him from a car crash and slowly nurses him back to health. It's eventually revealed that Annie has killed several of her patients, and her mood constantly swings between cheerful and psychotic. It culminates with Annie amputating Paul's foot.
    Annie Wilkes: I'm your number one fan...
  • Frank's sexual behavior with Jill in Once Upon a Time in the West, considering he killed her new family, including several children, and was going to kill her too had she not distracted him with her sexy.
  • In Ophelia, there's a predatory slant to Claudius's interactions with Ophelia that's all kinds of creepy. For starters, Claudius is decades older than Ophelia (he's in his forties/fifties, she's indicated to be in her late teens) and there's a vast power difference between them, which he never lets her forget. He restrains her and invades her personal space several times; on one occasion he all but reaches down her bodice to pull out Hamlet's ring, which she's wearing around her neck on a ribbon. He has a weird interest in her relationship with Hamlet (for double-creepiness, Hamlet's his nephew), comments on her sexuality and tries to force her into a marriage. Ophelia feels intimidated by Claudius and can do little to stand up to him unless she's literally pretending to be insane.
  • The 2003 Peter Pan film had several reviewers comment on the creepy chemistry/dynamic between Hook and Wendy. Word of God says it was unintentional, but even they acknowledge it's there. Incidentally, Hook and Wendy's father are played by the same actor (as recommended by the stage directions in the original play) for extra Freudian Squick value.
    • Arguably the filmmakers got exactly what they paid for when they took a traditionally comic role, made it much more sinister, cast Jason 'Foe Yay' Isaacs, then introduced him wearing literal leather pants and nothing else.
  • This song from Pete's Dragon (1977) is undertone-a-riffic, between Pete and his enormous, unintelligible, animated dragon. A touching friendship ballad needn't be Ho Yay-riffic, but the use of phrases like "Remember the night when you first confided" make the whole thing sound excessively romantic.
  • It depends how you feel about demons and the such, but the ending of REC2 has some Les Yay between the horribly mutated possessed girl, Medeiros, and Angela the reporter, when the former kisses the latter in order to transfer the worm demon.
  • Rippner and Lisa in Red Eye. Rippner is an Ax-Crazy murderer out to kill Lisa's father and other people and even Lisa herself. There's some sexual tension between the two and the scene in the airplane bathroom where he accosts her was dripping with rape metaphors. Word of God also says that Rippner developed feelings for Lisa in the entire time he was watching her and that he was jealous of the man who gave Lisa her scar and raped her.
  • Schindler's List: SS commandant Amon Goeth hints that he's attracted to his Jewish maid, Helen Hirsch, but refuses to sleep with her as it would be "beneath" him. He has complete control over a Nazi concentration camp, which he often uses as an outlet for his murderous and sadistic urges, while she's his terrified and battered prisoner. He clumsily comes on to her before blaming her for trying to "seduce" him and beating her. There's no Love Redeems here; he just sees her as a pet he can abuse at will.
  • Star Wars:
    • Palpatine's interest in Anakin comes off a little... intense. He looks at the kid like he's this close to eating him, his manipulation of Anakin is quite like a seduction, and practically creams in his pantaloons when saying lines like "I can feeeeeeeeeel your anger!" Even Obi-Wan says Anakin was "seduced by the dark side". The novelization of Revenge of the Sith takes this to the limit, with Palpatine purposefully distancing Anakin from Padme and Obi-Wan in order to have him all to himself.
    • There's a bit of this between Palpatine and Luke, too. "Take your father's place at my side," indeed.
    • While Leia's metal bikini is well loved by Star Wars fans everywhere, most like to forget that she wears it because she was forced to by the colossal crime lord Jabba the Hutt, and the scene leading up to it has him lick her face (Leia, for her part, is horrified and disgusted). The Expanded Universe mentions that even other Hutts think Jabba is a pervert for being attracted to humanoid women (and also, as one character implies, Han Solo.) Of course, after he became powerful and influential, a few Hutts tried to emulate him by keeping harems of slave girls. Opinions were mixed.
    • Pre-Return of the Jedi, some fans had made arguments for Luke/Leia. Played with in that after she kisses him in The Empire Strikes Back, we find out that they are related. Cue mass Abandon Shipping.
    • In the novelization of The Force Awakens it's mentioned by Leia that she knew Big Bad Snoke had been watching her son Ben aka Kylo Ren since he was a baby, and the influence of Snoke on his mind is strongly implied to have twisted it. It comes off very much like a sexual predator grooming a child victim.
    • The Last Jedi:
      • The subtext between Rey and Snoke is incredibly creepy. It was Snoke who linked her mind with Kylo's. When she first meets him he drags her over to him with the Force, puts his hand on her face, and compliments her "spunk" in a rather creepy way.
      • Admiral Holdo saying she likes Poe and cupping his cheek while he's unconscious made many fans uncomfortable due to their age gap, her status as his superior officer, their constant antagonism, and the inappropriateness of the gesture. According to Word of God, this is a very unfortunate artifact from an earlier version of the script where Poe and Holdo were the same age and had a Slap-Slap-Kiss dynamic.
  • Transformers: Dark of the Moon has this between Soundwave and Carly. He does exclusively assault her with his menagerie of spiky, metallic tentacles, and lets them linger over her for a disturbingly long time before Sam agrees to Gould's terms...and this is after masquerading as her car and having her ass on his seat for Primus-knows-how-long! And if that weren't enough, there's his declaration of, "You're mine!" once he transforms and reveals himself to her.
  • The Christof/Truman subtext from The Truman Show.
    Christof: (To Truman) You're afraid. That's why you can't leave. It's okay, Truman. I understand. I have been watching you your whole life. I was watching when you were born. I was watching when you took your first step. I watched you on your first day of school. Heh heh. The episode when you lost your first tooth, heh heh... You can't leave, Truman. You belong here... With me. Talk to me. Say something.
  • Unbroken: Watanabe is fixated on Zamperini, which includes beating him and trying to break his spirit. He even tells him that from the moment they met, he knew they were alike and that they could have been friends if not for their opposing sides. Zamperini mainly just seems creeped out by the attention.
  • The sheer number of times Albert stares into Joey the horse's eyes while touching his head in War Horse has overtones of this. It's vaguely referenced within the movie.
    David: Are you writing a love letter to your horse?
  • In the movie version of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader:
    • There is a scene where Edmund gets tempted by evil and glares darkly at Lucy, trying to lure her into becoming the most powerful person in the world along with him. Or as some fans put it: "he looks at her like he wants to do something else."
    • The whole White Witch/Edmund and Tumnus/Lucy thing, both cases reminding some of child kidnappers/molesters' cases.
    • In the third part, the White Witch tells Edmund she can make him her king.
    • Jadis (or at least her spirit), in a very form-fitting dress as white as her skin, also tries to basically seduce both Caspian and Peter in quick succession in Prince Caspian.

  • The Catcher in the Rye: The infamous passage in which Mr. Antolini strokes the forehead of a sleeping Holden. Even Holden himself is rather disturbed, fleeing Mr. Antolini's house right afterwards. Antolini's inquiries about Holden's girlfriends and calling Holden "handsome" as he wishes him goodnight could be read as flirtatious advances as well.
  • In Peter Moore's Caught In The Act we have Lydia's Yandere obsession with Ethan.
  • The Ciaphas Cain short story "The Beguiling" has the Slaaneshi Chaos witch Emeli attempt to psychically seduce Cain and eat his soul, which would have happened if Cain hadn't come to his senses in time and killed her. Except in Traitor's Hand she comes back as a Daemon Princess of Slaanesh (For reference, here's an old daemon princess from the Horus Heresy named Ingethel who seems to be associated with Slaanesh) and she still wants him. Cain is predictably squicked out of his mind.
  • For whatever reason, Amos and Naomi in The Expanse. Partly because Holden and Naomi are the Official Couple, and partly because in Naomi's words, Amos' sexuality is "not a pleasant place to be."
  • Michael Grant loves using this trope with perverted sadist Drake Merwin in the GONE series. Most of these never culminate in anything sexual, and some aren't even used in a sexual context, but he's made it pretty damn easy to take out of context.
    Sam: Me...You Want me! Drake: Yes Sam, I want you. And you're just going to lie there and take it! Because if you don't....
    Drake: I broke her legs so she couldn't run. She was screaming...But I think she liked it.
    Drake: Oh hey Astrid. Wait a sec, I'll be right back. Then I can come up and play.
    "He'd take his sweet time with Astrid. And even longer with Diana."
  • Harry Potter
    • The title character and Voldemort. Their souls are connected, they share each other's dreams, memories and thoughts, Voldemort sometimes gets into Harry's head as a whispering voice of temptation, Voldemort's described as a very charismatic and seductive figure (who used to be physically dashing, before the dark arts corrupted his appearance) and a big deal's made about their fates being intertwined. It certainly doesn't help that Ralph Fiennes, who played Voldemort in The Film of the Book, is Mr. Fanservice beneath the makeup. Voldemort is also a sociopath who murdered Harry's parents and tried to kill him as a baby, that he looks and talks like a humanoid serpent and that he is, by most estimates, around 70 years old.
    • It should also be noted that their wands are, ahem, connected. Harry's even makes Voldemort's spurt out magic when they have a duel with them.
    • This is hinted at with Diary/Horcrux! Tom Riddle and Possessed!Ginny. There's certainly Mind Rape involved, and he forces her to tell him all her secrets and do things she doesn't want to do. As she mentions in Order of the Phoenix, the mental scars have remained with her. This has been picked up on by the fandom, who often point to the events of Chamber of Secrets as one of the reasons for how she repeatedly Took a Level in Badass in the subsequent books.
  • In Death: Renee Obermann and William Garnet have a relationship that is just loaded with this. At one point, she tells him to walk her out like a good boy, sounding like she's treating him like a dog. Much later, he shows up at her place, looking all furious. He shoves her into her apartment and she tells him to not put his hands on her again. He responds that he'll do more than put his hands on her. It is revealed that she had sexual relationship with him at one time, and she broke it off, because that was her way to establish control over him.
  • The Mysterious Benedict Society: Mr. Benedict tells the children (through a riddle) that the reason Mr. Curtain keeps S.Q. around is "love." He then implies that the reason S.Q. is so forgetful is that Mr. Curtain is brainwashing him (which would remove memories of Mr. Curtain's cruelty and reduce S.Q. inhibitions). We eventually get a less Squick-y explanation, but the implications of a (probably non-con) relationship between the villain and his teenage follower are still disturbing. Plus, the explanation came from Reynie, not any of the adult characters, so it might not even be correct.
  • In the Outlander series, there's Captain John Randall towards Jamie. At first, it's more subtle Foe Yay, mostly consisting of Randall having a dreamy look on his face every time Jamie shows defiance and resistance towards him, culminating in Dougal describing Randall's look as a guy who's hot on a girl. And then, Randall shows that these impulses actually extend to being out-and-out sexual, revealing his desire for Jamie to "become his"... which eventually results in poor Jamie getting imprisoned, raped, and beaten (as part of certain scenario that Randall is into) repeatedly. It gets worse when Randall is actually revealed to have probably been genuinely in love with him, in his own messed up way.
  • Hannibal Lecter/Will Graham in Red Dragon. Hannibal of course is a cannibal serial killer who nearly made Will one of his victims before he was arrested. Made worse in the movie adaptation: "Do you dream much, Will? I think of you often."
  • Count Olaf/Violet from A Series of Unfortunate Events. The first book alone has bucket loads of No Yay subtext, what with Count Olaf planning on marrying her and later consummating his relationship with his 14-year-old adopted daughter. While Olaf didn't seem to have anything sexual in mind primarily, he decides that he'll let her live even after he has the fortune and makes quite a few comments on how pretty she is. In the next book he has a knife to her THIGH under the table. There's the line "Violet imagined sleeping beside Count Olaf, and waking up each morning to look at this terrible man.", which shows the author must have known what that would imply to his older readers. And when the hook-handed man has Violet cornered in the tower during the rescue attempt for Sunny, he says into his walkie-talkie "Yes, boss. Yes, boss, of course I understand she's yours, boss." The emphasis is the author's.
  • The Silmarillion: There are hints that Fëanor had less-than-pure intentions toward Galadriel. It's creepy enough on its own, but then you take into account that Galadriel is his niece...
    • Some people out there ship Fëanor and Morgoth, despite the fact that Morgoth murdered Fëanor's father and stole the Silmarils. Oh, and he's the source of all evil in the world.
  • A Song of Ice and Fire:
  • The Vampire Chronicles:
    • Louis/Claudia. Claudia is trapped inside the body of a five-year-old (eleven-year-old in the movie), and one of Louis' first descriptions of her in the book as a vampire (while she is still mentally a child) talks of her appearance being slightly sensual.
    • The Vampire Lestat: After turning his mother, Gabrielle, the nature of their relationship changed from parent/child to hinting they were lovers. There was more subtle subtext when they were still humans, but it got worse after the change. Lestat going on and on about how sexy she looked in men's clothing and them discussing the possibility of vampire sex didn't help matters.
  • Wicked Lovely brings us this between Donia, the cursed Wintergirl, and Beira, the queen who left her that way. It's subtle, but Beira stroking Don's face while blackmailing her into killing Keenan is one of the creepiest things in the series... and given the places later books go, that's saying something.

    Live-Action TV 
  • Are You Afraid of the Dark?: Peter to Danielle. He is shown in "The Tale Of The Captured Souls" to spy on Danielle and her family through his mirrors as part of his plan to steal their youth. The cameras include views of the tub in the bathroom and the bedroom. Does this mean Peter has watched Danielle and her parents undress when they're changing, or to take a bath, or when going to bed? He also lays on his bed when Danielle's in his room and she asks "What do you do for fun around here?" He responds "What do you wanna do?" He also calls her "lovely" and has No Sense of Personal Space around her. And when she does pull ups in his room randomly he says "I've always admired a strong girl."
  • Arrowverse: Apparently, Green Arrow/Supergirl pairing is this. Other than the fact that the two headline separate shows, there's just something inherently off regarding the super-brooding manly man that is Oliver Queen hooking up with the bubbly, dorky Kara Danvers. The trope gets lampshaded in the Crisis on Earth-X crossover, which has Nazi versions of Green Arrow and Supergirl being married. When Kara finds out about this:
    Kara: His wife? Gross. (realizes that Oliver is standing beside her) No offense.
  • Babylon 5: Ulkesh (Kosh II) and Lyta have a scene with somewhat sexual overtones, amidst a working relationship where Ulkesh was rather domineering and abusive to her in general:
    Lyta: "You didn't have to pull out of me so fast. You hurt me."
  • Discussed in Brooklyn Nine-Nine, when Detective Boyle relates an anecdote about how he and a girl he had UST with ended up succumbing to their lust... while starring in a high school production of Annie as Daddy Warbucks and Annie respectively.
    Detective Boyle: We were supposed to hug, on stage. And at first, that seemed like nothing too. But by opening night, we were full-on making out.
    Detective Santiago: As Annie and Daddy Warbucks?
    Detective Boyle: Mmm-hmmm... the audience was not on board. Playwright sued the school.
  • Buffyverse:
    • Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Willow and VampWillow in "Doppelgangland". Had Willow not shot her, VampWillow (who's not only a vampire, but also creepily insane) was well on her way toward forcing the issue, which doesn't help the playful subtext that continues afterward.
      • Also Buffy and R.J, from "Him". Buffy is not only in her twenties while he is likely to be 16, but she's also working at the school R.J (and her little sister who also has a crush on him!) attends. At one point, Xander finds her straddling him on a school desk, making out deeply enough that it's clear that if Xander had been much later, it almost certainly would have escalated to sex. The fact that it only happens because she's under an extremely potent love spell at the time only makes things worse.
    • Angel: Adult Cordelia has sex with the teenage son of the man she's in love with, as said man watches (although she didn't know). What makes it even worse is that Cordelia knew that son as a baby, said baby having grown up in a parallel dimension with Year Inside, Hour Outside; and that Cordelia was possessed by an Eldritch Abomination at the time, so she wasn't even in control of her own actions. Thus, the whole thing was essentially rape via deception for both of them.
  • Community: The episode "Physical Education" has a scene where Jeff has a pool match with his aging, overweight new billiards instructor. It features both of them getting naked and the instructor walking up to Jeff while both are still naked and then kissing him on the lips.
  • On Defiance, it's hard to watch Stahma Tarr's scenes with her future daughter-in-law Christine McCawley without seeing them as attempts at seduction, especially after Stahma starts having a secret affair with local madam Kenya Rosewater.
  • KC and Coach Carson from Degrassi: The Next Generation during Heart Like Mine Part 1 and 2. KC is fifteen and Coach Carson is his basketball coach. The guy does several creepy things. First, he gives KC the room key for his hotel room, so he can make out with Jenna, and then he walks in on them, saying, "Don't mind me." He also takes off his shirt a couple times in front of KC and invades his personal space, touching his shoulders a lot. Later, he gives KC beer and watches PORN with him. During the next episode, he shows him his gun, but the worst part is when he hires a prostitue to "help" KC get laid — pretty much insinuating that he wanted to have a threesome with KC and the hooker. When KC calls him a pervert, he replies by saying, "I didn't touch you!"
  • Dexter: Dexter and the Icetruck Killer, both serial killers obsessed with murder almost to a sexual level, and brothers. Which was toned down for the TV series; the novel was even more blatant.
  • Doctor Who:
    • The sexual tension between the Fourth Doctor and Leela is between two pretty sexy characters and quite enjoyable, apart from the incredibly uncomfortable power dynamic and the implication in Lungbarrow that Leela is the Doctor's mother via an incredibly round-about means. (This last part has been retconned out since.)
    • Played for laughs in "The Creature From The Pit" which featured a monster with a staggeringly phallic character design, and Tom Baker having an outrageous amount of fun exploiting that by playing his relationship with the monster as sexually as he could get away with. Particularly when he's looking at it while licking his lips and touching his mouth, going towards it and then seeming suddenly intimidated by the size. Or caressing it with his cheek with his eyes closed in ecstasy. Or putting the end of its big tentacle in his mouth and sucking on it.
    • The Master's sexual fascination with the Doctor in "The Keeper of Traken" would be standard Foe Yay if he wasn't a foul, rotting, seeping monstrosity at the time (while gently twiddling his fingers through the ends of the Doctor's curly hair).
  • Farscape's Crichton/Scorpius and their blatant subtext falls between this and Fan Disservice. Hell, Scorpius/Anyone. There's even a sex scene at one point involving him and a woman with what look like twitching spider legs coming out of her head. And then there's all the Scorpius/Braca subtext...
  • Firefly:
    • An extremely creepy one-way version of this between Jubal Early and River in "Objects in Space". Pretty much all of his lines regarding her can easily be interpreted as sexual in nature, and that's before you factor in the rape threats. Not to mention River's line, "You crawl inside me uninvited," which does NOT help things.
      • A decent case can be made for River and anyone on the show. She's seventeen years old, traumatized and brain damaged, and the extent to which she improved after the events of the movie is unclear.
    • Crosses the line from subtext to text in the case of Kaylee, to whom he coldly threatens rape as something he neither desires nor undesires, just a thing that he will do if she doesn't cooperate.
    • Hilariously, this is how the entire crew reacts to the prospect of Mal/Zoe. Even the shockingly crude, meat head mercenary Jayne. ("Now, somethin' 'bout that is just downright unsettlin'.") Even Mal and Zoe themselves react this way.
  • In one episode of Friends, during part of an I Know You Know I Know type Gambit Pileup, it's Monica and Chandler versus everyone else (except Ross). Chandler and Monica want to keep their relationship secret, but Joey, Phoebe, and Rachel want them to reveal it. It comes down to Phoebe and Chandler trying to "seduce" each other, despite the fact that neither of them wanted to seduce the other. Eventually, they both lean in for the kiss, and it's plain on their faces that they do not want to. It's hilarious.
  • Game of Thrones:
    • Due to the wide cast of characters and explicit nature of the show, it's no stranger to potentially Squicky pairings. However, a few top the rest, such as unironically shipping sadistic psychopaths like Joffrey and Ramsay with Sansa. These are the same people who gleefully murdered members of her own family and have either already raped her or threatened to do so.
    • Same goes for Ramsay/Reek, which has a few Ho Yay moments but is a Torture Technician and Stockholm Syndrome type of thing.
  • Glee: Karofsky, Kurt's long-term bully, forcefully kissing Kurt. The shocked and horrified look on Kurt's face said it all.
  • The TV version of Hannibal takes the subtext from the book and film and takes it Up to Eleven with Will Graham and Hannibal's relationship, with a significant part of the first season spent showing Hannibal Gaslighting Will and generally acting like a Stalker with a Crush. And season 2 just ups the ante even more, with the final episode of the season having Hannibal act like a jilted lover when he slits the throat of Abigail (essentially his and Will's surrogate daughter) before stabbing Will himself and leaving him to die. There's that squicky bit in the next season when Hannibal cuts open Will's head with the intention of eating his brain. The end of the series removes the "sub" from subtext completely and confirms the two have feelings for each other.
  • Claire and Sylar in Heroes. Claire is underage, and Sylar is a serial killer who's been spent much of the first season stalking her. When they encounter one another again in Volume Five, he actually kisses her while holding her down with telekinesis, and tries to convince her that they were meant for each other. Claire's response is to maintain a full-power Death Glare throughout the encounter.
  • Horatio Hornblower has, in the first episode, the very creepy Inquisition scene in which Simpson gets a couple of other midshipmen to pin Horatio to a table, then leans in way too close to him and asks him what his "dirty little secret" is, starting with "A fancier of other boys, perhaps?" Additionally, there's a lot of subtext and hints dropped ("You don't know half of what he's capable of"; "Jack's missed you, boy"; etc.) that before Horatio arrived, Simpson was sexually abusing Archie. Which of course just makes the Inquisition that much worse.
  • It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has roommates and Heterosexual Life-Partners Charlie and Frank. This wouldn't be so bad (if a bit gross considering their lifestyles)...except it's very heavily implied (if not outright stated) that Frank might be Charlie's biological father. This being Always Sunny, this is most likely intentional.
  • The Nanny: In "The Nanny-In-Law", it's revealed that Niles had an affair with Nanny Mueller, Maxwell's nanny, when he was growing up. Lampshaded when Maxwell, after seeing them, stammers "I...I...I don't ever want to see that again!"
  • Once Upon a Time:
    • There's the very special case of Swan Queen (Emma/Regina). It's Squick to some of the fandom because Regina is Emma's step-grandmother, has repeatedly tried to kill Emma and her parents, succeeded in killing Emma's supposed love interest, and she had forced said love interest into being her Sex Slave for 28 years. It's interesting because Emma/Regina is a very popular ship (Emma is certainly Regina's most common partner in the fandom, but not necessarily the other way around), but at the same time it is reviled among the rest of the fandom, even parts of the fandom that have nothing to do with either character,
    • Played Straight with Cora/Leopold. There's just something very wrong with Cora being involved with her daughter's future husband. Especially since she arranged Leopold and Regina's marriage.
    • Speaking of which, Regina/Leopold is universally despised. Whether it's due to the age gap, the fact that it was an Arranged Marriage, or if it has to due with Regina conspiring to kill Leopold and his daughter during the entirety of the marriage. The fact that Leopold had previously been engaged to Cora only adds to it. There's nothing in the show that indicates the relationship had any romantic leanings, indeed Regina was basically a babysitter, but still.
    • A brief in-universe example. Rumplestiltskin has had subtext with every single one of his students. Regina at one mentions there was always tension between them, and given his previous students include her mother and half-sister, everyone she tells is understandably and visibly disgusted.
  • Oz had a few of these. Keller/Schillinger in particular is a good example with the kiss Keller gives Schillinger at one point considering that Schillinger is a creepy rapist and Keller a Depraved Bisexual murderer. Also Beecher/Schillinger with Schillinger raping Beecher and messing with his head.
  • Parks and Recreation gives us this gem when Andy is assigning codenames to everyone.
    Andy: Also, from now on, we'll be using code names. You can address me as "Eagle One." Ann, code name: "Been There Done That." April is "Currently Doing That." Donna is "It Happened Once In A Dream." Chris, code name: "If I Had To Pick A Dude." Ben is "Eagle Two."
    Ben: Oh thank God!
  • Rizzoli & Isles features Hoyt/Jane, seeing as how Hoyt is an ugly creepy Ax-Crazy serial killer after Jane and Jane is beautiful and terrified of him.
  • Star Trek: Deep Space Nine has the dubious honor of sporting a case of No Yay so intense that the actress herself took issue with it and stopped it cold. The producers wanted Dukat, a mass-murdering war criminal, romantically paired up with Kira, the former freedom fighter whose people were the target of his genocide, and so subtext started appearing all over the place. Nana Visitor protested the move so vehemently that the planned storyline was soon dropped and they wound up as even worse enemies. So the producers revealed that Kira's mother used to be Dukat's lover during the occupation because of a Scarpia Ultimatum, which only made his interest in Kira even creepier.
    Nana Visitor: Playing Kira, I can't even entertain the thought. It's too disgusting.
  • Supernatural
    • Dean and Sam run into the prophet Chuck, who's been unwittingly writing books about the brothers' adventures. They're understandably nauseated to find out that some fans ship them together, particularly Dean, who raised Sam from childhood.
      Dean: That's sick.
    • Sam/Dean is especially noteworthy for having enough fans agree that the incest was just too big a squick factor for them to overcome — while it was very popular in early seasons and still has a sizeable following, a good number of fans shipped it only because there were no other popular pairings to ship until the fourth season — that shipping their actors instead in Real-Person Fic became a popular way to indirectly ship Sam/Dean without having to justify incest or find a way to make them Not Blood Siblings. Although that method still came with its own unique issues of shipping two real-life celebrities together that not all fans were able to stomach.
    • Alastair's fixation on Dean, who Dean "studied under" in Hell.
    • Lucifer's interest in Sam, which includes implications of wanting to rape him.
    • Meg's interest in Sam and Dean which includes wanting to torture them and kill them while varying between beating them up and kissing them.
  • This applies to the otherwise popular Beast Boy x Raven relationship in Titans (2018) . The characters are both supposed to be teenagers and roughly the same age but Raven is played by an actual kid whereas Beast Boy is played by a twenty-something who’s eight years older than her. Notably they’re not in an actual relationship.
  • True Blood: Lorena/Bill. In "It Hurts Me Too" after Bill pins Lorena against a wall and tells her that he'll never love her, she kisses him. He does not react well to this, first going for her throat with his fangs, then responding to her urging him to make love to her by doing so extremely violently to the point that he leaves several cuts on her chest and twists her head around 180 degrees. Lorena loves every second of it, and dreamily says "Oh William, I so love you." Also, even after Bill tells Lorena multiple times that he hates her guts and can't stand the sight of her, she still has the nerve to ask him "When will we see each other again?"
  • Victorious: Due to her constantly decreasing intelligence and childlike behavior, there's a section of the fanbase that doesn't think Cat is in the proper state to give romantic consent to anyone.

  • "Tag You're It" by Melanie Martinez is about a woman being kidnapped. It sounds heavily like rape was involved, though according to the Concept Album that is unlikely.

  • In Hamilton, completely regardless of anything about the actual pairing or its potential historical accuracy, some people get really squicked out by Hamilton/Laurens due to the fact that Laurens' actor also plays Hamilton's son Phillip in act 2.
  • In the sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies, the song "The Beauty Underneath" sounds like a Repo! cut song, features a lot of breathy moans of "yes!" and a lot of ambiguously romantic language. Despite the show's flaws, the song would be standard Phantom fetish appeal... if it weren't sung to the Phantom's ten-year-old son.
  • Stanley and Blanche of A Streetcar Named Desire. Blanche insults Stanley every chance she gets and Stanley equally hates her. Then you see how he deliberately tries to ruin her life and eventually rapes her to insanity.

    Video Games 
  • In Assassin's Creed: Syndicate Maxwell Roth's behavior towards Jacob Frye culminates in a kiss as Roth is dying. To many, it reads as disturbing and creepy. Not least of all Jacob, who did not reciprocate, what with Roth being a sadist and would-be child murderer.
  • In the Game Over of Banjo-Kazooie, it's implied that Mumbo Jumbo fancies Gruntilda, as if he has feelings for her.
  • In Baroque, there's a bit of well-buried subtext that implies that the Protagonist (12) had feelings for his twin brother (13). The boys are conjoined twins and share a heart; only one of them is conscious at a time when they're both alive, and most of their communication was in the form of notes and playing chess. It sort of gets worse with the manga, which implies 12 has these same sort of feelings for the Absolute God but looks to her as sort of a surrogate for his conjoined twin. So, it's rather complicated and can be mildly unsettling.
  • Bayonetta:
    • The eponymous protagonist is Ms. Fanservice who generates subtext almost constantly. Unfortunately this includes mention of "pillow talk" with Temperantia.
    • Father Balder is even worse. He's first introduced chatting to Cereza, who is sitting in his lap. He then applies lipstick to her lips, before assimilating the child into his chest. The rape-factor is made worse with the revelation that Balder is Bayonetta's biological father, and Cereza is her child self.
    • Played for laughs in Chapter VI, where a Great Beloved, a bigger version of an already huge, muscular angel monster, falls for the young girl Cereza and keeps her in his "mouth" for the whole fight. All while Cereza is clearly terrified of the whole experience. This culminates in a cheesy piano piece playing over the Great Beloved crying over her while he's being eaten by a demon.
  • In BioShock Infinite a lot of people saw romantic undertones in the relationship between Booker and Elizabeth, which actually kinda made sense until you find out they are father and daughter. Neither of them were aware of it until The Reveal either.
  • For BlazBlue, there is a lot of unpleasant subtext between Relius and Makoto. His obsession with Makoto's soul borders on fetishistic, his dialogue and means on restraining her during his Astral is demeaning, and then there's Makoto's Bad Ending.
  • In Clock Tower 3, which was jointly made by Capcom using the same team that made the aformentioned Haunting Ground (and thus which has virtually no connection to the first two games in the Clock Tower series aside from the obvious theme of having, literally, a clocktower feature prominently in the story) the main villain, Lord Burroughs, is secretly the protagonist's grandfather, the aptly-named Dick Hamilton, who was so obsessed with his own daughter that he coldly ignored his wife, brutally murdered his son-in-law, and then had his daughter brutally murdered as well by his sociopathic subordinate when she tried to protect her daughter(his granddaughter) from him, with the implication that she was also raped (whether by him or his subordinate or both of them). As mentioned, he later transfers his carnal obsession to his granddaughter, the heroine Alyssa, who's the very image of her mother. She manages to kill him though.
  • Condemned: Criminal Origins gives us Serial Killer X/Ethan Thomas. The subtext gets a lot more blatant in the sequel Bloodshot, where SKX actually rescues Ethan, gets close to him and holds a knife to his throat, whispering to him, "Yes... I look forward to cutting you open... learn your little secret..." or how he told Ethan, "Do you think of me whenever you look at your hand? I think of you every time I look in the mirror..." Which would all be well and good, except SKX has a huge section of his mouth/jaw blown off, and has a bunch of cuts and scars on his forehead and face. And adding to that, Ethan is a pale, sickly worn down drunk. Please, No Yay.
  • One of the possible companions in Dragon Age II, Fenris, is a former slave. For a long time, a common theory was that he was more than just a body guard; especially since some of his former master's lines give certain implications. This seemed to be just a theory since Fenris acts exasperated when Isabela brings it up, but then Word of God confirmed it. Also, said former master is an old guy with Blood Magic and a serious Lack of Empathy. And Fenris has been a slave since childhood. This also manages to put a lot of Fenris' hang-ups (particularly his sometimes violent reaction to physical contact) and some of the party's comments, especially Isabela's remarks, in a much nastier light...
  • Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime: What would be a fitting reward for the hero? Could he become a prince? Brilliant! But he has to marry Fat Bastard Gluttonella...
  • Drakengard is made of this, quite deliberately. The hero's sister wants to jump his bones, and one of your main characters is a pedophile. Long story short, you know there's problems when the least disturbing implied pairing is the hero and his dragon partner.
  • The subtext between Zoe and Alvin Peats in Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. He is a 200-year-old old green blob of fat and sweat. Before they meet face-to-face, he already stalked Zoe through the eyes of his cat minion and knew her body's most intimate details thanks to eating the sex dreams of her ex-boyfriend, which he very much enjoyed and brags about. When they finally meet he recognizes her by sniffing around. Then he announces she will stay in his lab, where he'll "take good care of her" and conduct experiments to uncover a secret of her power.
  • In Embric of Wulfhammer's Castle , the Duchess was the "favourite" of her uncle Greyghast, she remembers his "attentions" with horror, and one flashback shows that he admired her beauty and repeatedly drugged her. It's stated once or twice that he was raping her and planned to make her his wife, but this is easy to miss and most of the time it's just creepy, creepy subtext.
  • As seen in the page quote, in Fallout: New Vegas's Old World Blues expansion, after a run-in with some lobotomy-happy scientists who replace your brain with implants, and place it in a jar, you can later have a talk with it. And, depending on your perks, you can hit on your own brain.
    • Also, Benny gets grossed out if a female Courier hits on him, since he had her shot in the head and left her for dead at the start of the game. Not that this stops him from sleeping with you if you pursue it, but it's acknowledged.
  • A lot of Fire Emblem games have a pair of bandits that are as ugly as hell. There is usually a lot of romantic subtext in it, and are also often than not related, usually twins.
    • Fire Emblem Awakening has quite a few instances of this. Notably, the player avatar can marry anyone of the opposite gender, which means you can make yourself young and then marry the oldest guy in the game. Or, more controversially, you can marry any of the second generation characters. They may be around the same age, sure, but they're actually the children of the rest of the cast. A Male Avatar can even marry Chrom's daughter Lucina. He finds out about her after he witnessed her birth.
    • For another non-bandit example, Valter's Villainous Crush on Eirika in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones is extremely uncomfortable. He makes many comments implying he wants to rape her or keep her as a Sex Slave, most notably in his boss conversation with her in Chapter 15, and frequently calls her "[his] strong girl." There's also his comments towards Ephraim to a lesser degree, which many players have taken as an Interplay of Sex and Violence.
  • Guild Wars 2: Palawa Joko is about as depraved as they come (just visit his harem). He is also a long past undead lich. He is also violently obsessed with the Commander. How violently obsessed? He kidnaps villagers from around his palace, glamours them to look like the Commander, and tortures them to death in assorted ways while taking it in like fine theatre. That's right, he practices to find out which method of murder would get him off the most. This holds no matter which of the races the Commander is. And then there are the small, petty things, like critiquing your choice of allies (because he would be so much more fun). Yick.
  • Haunting Ground:
    • Riccardo towards Fiona. At first this might not seem so bad, since his voice seems pretty handsome, and he looks very mysterious with the brown cloak covering his face. Until they actually show his face, and it's revealed he's a 40-50-year-old man. It gets much creepier when the player realizes he's her uncle, and shares the same DNA as her father. And he acts like a complete creep towards Fiona — abducting her and stripping her so she has to go around the mansion naked, carving a statue of her pregnant (and telling her that he's going to make her that way), sticking some stick thing up her... apparently to make sure she's healthy enough to have his child and to make sure she was a virgin, out-and-out stalking her with a gun ("Fiona, why do you run? Let me into your womb!"), and if he catches and kills her during gameplay, the Game Over has him raping her body. The worst ending in the game is where he does manage to kidnap her, and confines her in a cage and apparently impregnates her. She's later shown as his wife, with him being very happy.
    • Lorenzo and Fiona. The guy is a crazy, decrepit, wheel chair bound, incredibly old man. Apparently, he wants to rape and impregnate her, too. It's so disturbing when he's revealed to be her freaking grandfather. He creeps the hell out of most people with the way he crawls around grabbing onto Fiona's legs, calling her his "dear Fiona."
  • Asha in Iji ends up generating some one sided Foe Yay with his obsession. He considers Dan, whom he refers to as "her partner", so unimportant he thinks Iji being upset about endangering/killing him is petty. If Iji bypasses the duel he leaves a suicide note that makes it sound more like she rejected a date. Turning on the Scrambler makes the implied crush on her even more explicit. When Asha's dialogue is more or less composed of "<3", "TOOT TOOT", "HONK" and other possibly dirty things, you can't help but think that Daniel Remar is seriously hinting at something.
  • Kingdom Hearts:
    • Axel/Roxas. Some may like it, but others... Axel is around 25, and Roxas is around 15note . Also, Axel is, as of the release of 358/2 Days, something of a surrogate father to Roxas. Wife Husbandry leaves a really bad taste in a lot of people's mouths. And Birth By Sleep reveals he used to know someone who looked exactly like Roxas when he was a child.
    • Sora/Xehanort in Dream Drop Distance. Young Xehanort kept following Sora all throughout the dreams, he even wanted Sora to be his new vessel so much that he beat up Riku really badly.
    • Roxas/Xion considering she's a clone of Roxas's somebody. The Screw Yourself implications scares off romantic interpretations of their relationship. "I am Sora, just as I am you[Roxas]." Furthermore, Xion's true form seems to be a featureless puppet, considering that's what Larxene (who doesn't care about anybody) saw when she looked at her, though her true form could also simply be Xion (Kairi w/black hair) since that's how Roxas sees her, given he personally doesn't know Kairi and started to see her as Xion after bonding with her.
    • Riku/"Ansem" in Chain of Memories. It reached a peak with this lovely exchange:
      Ansem: Riku... I can see your heart...
      Riku:'s not. Darkness this foul could only...only be—
      Ansem: That's it, remember me... Let me drift into your heart...
      Riku: Ansem!
      Ansem: You called out my name. You have been thinking about me... You're afraid of the darkness I command. Good... The more you think of me, the closer my return draws. And when I have awoken, I will take hold... Your heart will be mine!
    • Then, in Kingdom Hearts III, upon his final defeat, Ansem fondly reflects on the "journey" he and Riku had together, and Riku admits that he would miss Ansem. The scene feels strangely sentimental considering this was the guy who had been obsessively harassing and attempting to groom Riku since he was 14.
  • Mass Effect:
    • After some close listening to Harbinger's lines, a large fraction of them make it sound like he wants Shepard. Really, really bad. Even Mecha Cthulhus want Shepard.
    • In universe, Ashley will complain if Shepard jokes about her and Liara fighting over him. Afterwards he can suggest a threesome, which promptly causes Ash to dump him.
    • The second game was working on a romance with a female Shepard and Tali, but her voice actor was really uncomfortable with the idea so it was dropped.
  • Mermaid Swamp: Yuuta with Yuka after the former becomes possessed. They start out as good friends and Yuuta expresses understandable concern for Yuka when she becomes ill. But slowly his innocent affection for her becomes increasingly obsessive and creepy. It's implied he was masturbating to Yuka while she's lying in bed seriously ill, with her whole body grotesquely swollen, and Rin later catches him standing at Yuka's bedside, staring at her and going on about how "beautiful" Yuka is and how he much he likes her being so "docile". Rin is extremely disturbed and orders him to get away from her at which point he becomes violent towards Rin. Considering the later revelation that Yuuta was possessed by the spirits of the Tsuchida men, who were obsessed with 'mermaids', kidnapping women, keeping them in water and then preserving their bloated bodies in tanks after they died, the whole situation becomes even worse, especially as it means Yuuta wasn't even in control of himself at the time.
  • Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots: The fight between Vamp and Raiden has some extremely disturbing homoerotic imagery: the grappling, the almost rutting-like motion when Raiden stabs himself to nail Vamp, the white cyborg blood, the crotch-knife licking and stabbing which almost looks like penetration of a different sort; plus, when Raiden stabs himself and Vamp, they end up in a pose that makes it look like Vamp is spooning Raiden. And then Vamp pulls Raiden closer to plunge the blade in farther.
  • Mobius Final Fantasy has a lot of this between Sara and Wol. The beats of it work like a conventional FF romance, down to the odd Internal Homage, but due to the railroading effects of the Prophecy, both are Strangled by the Red String to an extreme and everyone knows this, including her. She appears to regard herself as a prize, mentioning that her heart was conflicted, but then asking Wol 'will you have me?'. On top of this, Wol appears to dislike her. He shrinks away from her touches, gripes about her in private to Echo (saying an impression of her was 'too talkative') and keeps noticing in his internal narration how bad she smells, saying it's 'like rot'. Her role in propping up a system where millions of people are pulled from their worlds to die pointlessly for her certainly doesn't help.
  • Waylon Park and Eddie Gluskin (aka, "The Groom") in the Whistleblower DLC of Outlast. Gluskin wants a wife and children... by castrating Waylon to make him into the perfect bride.
  • Persona 5
    • There is a subset of the fandom that ships Kamoshida with Ann, Ryuji, or Mishima, all characters who have either been sexually harassed or physically abused by him.
    • There's also Shido/Akechi. Shido is heavily implied to be a rapist and isn't above manipulating others to get what he wants, and has had Akechi under his thumb as his personal assassin for at least two years. Akechi's supposed Uncanny Family Resemblance with his dead mother and attitude towards Shido doesn't help, despite him being aware of who Shido is.
  • In [PROTOTYPE], there is a really, really disturbing amount of subtext between Alex Mercer and Elizabeth Greene. The scene when she ends up pinning his body beneath hers with their faces a hair apart does not help at all. But, quite apart from them trying sincerely to kill/eat each other, the obvious age difference (she looks nineteen, he looks about a decade older (The Reveal is she's over fifty and he hasn't even lived a month), their mutual creepiness, and that she calls herself his mother...well, add tentacles, disease, pustules and blood, stir well and enjoy. Extra horror: THEY ACTUALLY BREED. It wasn't intended by either of them but eeeugh.
  • Simmon's infatuation with Ada in Resident Evil 6. Not only is the guy a total creep, but his unhealthy obsession ultimately leads him to create, a clone of her, using the body of his assistant, Carla, to do so.
  • Silent Hill
  • Dr. Henry West MD towards Jennifer Willis in the remake of Splatterhouse, considering he's centuries old and sees Jennifer as a substitute for his wife.
  • Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) has the whole Sonic/Princess Elise subplot, with a large anthropomorphic hedgehog and a realistic human princess acting flirty around each other, as well as the infamous scene in which she kisses Sonic. Who, for the record, was dead at the time.
  • The sequel to The Suffering has as one of its villains the ghost of a man who raped and killed prostitutes, and who says things like "I cut her apart so I could see her inner self." Some dialogue indicates that he's a Depraved Bisexual and has his eye on the main character. Even worse, at one point he appears to audibly fantasise you as a child... specifically as a little girl.
  • Throughout later Super Mario Bros. titles, there's heavy implication that Bowser keeps kidnapping Peach because he has a crush on her. It's kind of sweet, really. But when he lied to Bowser Jr., saying that she was actually his mother? Gross. He was basically telling his son "I hit that."
  • There is a very good reason why Van Grants of Tales of the Abyss was given the Fan Nickname Master Badtouch. Van manipulates his student Luke's mancrush on him shamelessly, and his words when calming Luke's hyperresonance Freak Out on the boat are borderline sexual. And then, of course, there's Van's suggestion that they run away together. All of this would still almost count as Ho Yay...except Luke is a clone created by Van, and Van's only reason for keeping him around is to use him to destroy Akzeriuth. Also, Van is pretty clearly an adult, what with the memetic beard and all, and Luke, thanks to the cloning process, is mentally seven years old. Mind Game Ship + Pedophilic implications = No Yay.
  • Togainu no Chi features a lot of this. For example, there's one of the ending which has Keisuke ripping out Akira's guts while proclaiming that he loves Akira. He's also sporting a look that seems similar to an orgasm.
  • Season 2 of The Walking Dead had entirely unintentional amounts of subtext between Clementine and Luke. They're supposed to have a brother-sister dynamic, but a lot of their dialogue comes off as flirtatious banter, which is unfortunate, as Clementine is 11 and Luke is in his mid-twenties.

    Visual Novels 
  • For an in-universe example, in the Ace Attorney series Edgeworth gets incredibly pissed off at anyone who tries to suggest the Edgeworth/Wendy Oldbag ship. Especially Oldbag herself.
  • Fate/stay night has multiple cases with its main cast.
    • Emiya Shirou's interactions with Ilya are half the time downright adorable and depending on the path, the two can get close for Illya to pull a Heel–Face Turn and in one of the endings makes a Heroic Sacrifice to keep Shirou from doing so. When they aren't, however, they are very disturbing. Illya's friendly behavior is often mixed with death threats, and her pursuing Shirou makes her come off as a stalker. It's at its worst when she kidnaps Shirou in the Fate route and tells him to "be mine" while sitting on his lap, with the hints that she is going to try to rape him. Ilya is actually older than Shirou but she has the body of a child, so the scene comes off as a child about to rape a teenager. She's also essentially the child of Shirou's adoptive father, making them kind-of siblings. Word of God is that there was originally a sex scene planned at that point but it was dropped, not that what Ilya actually does to Shirou if he says “yes” is much better where it turns out she was tricking him into handing over his soul.
    • Gilgamesh towards Saber. Gilgamesh is already a horrible man who views everything the world as his property, including Saber. He's actually attracted by her revulsion to him, feeling that being denied something makes it all the more beautiful, but he still makes remarks about how he wants to molest her; knowing Gilgamesh, he is not exaggerating.
    • Caster towards Saber in Unlimited Blade Works. Caster frequently shows a cruel side, and interest in Saber that almost seems perverted. In this route, she manages to sever Saber's connection to Shirou with her magic knife and starts forcing Saber to be her Servant, a process which leaves Saber magically tortured for over a day while Caster delights in her pain. She also puts Saber is a white frilly dress while thinking about turning her into a Sex Slave.
    • Zouken Matou's evil plan revolves around torturing Sakura and when scheming he keeps bringing up her body in ways that make it sound like he's stalking her. He is revealed to have actually thrown Sakura to hordes of magic worms to be violated, for years, and planned to eventually take over Sakura's body to become immortal.
  • Nurse Love Addiction has the main character, Asuka, mention many times over the game that she does not want to end up romancing her sister, Nao, despite Nao's advances. Unfortunately for her, Nao is one of the game's four heroines, meaning there's a good chance she will. In fact, Nao is even the most popular heroine, at least according to the Vita's trophy stats.
  • Resident Extraverted Nerd and Fat Comic Relief, Hifumi Yamada in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc falls in love with... Alter-Ego, an advanced A.I. that was created by the recently deceased Chihiro Fujisaki in order to help the remaining students escape the Killing Game. Hifumi constantly claimed to only be interested in 2D Women, which goes far beyond what you might expect and falls head over heels with the A.I., even Kyoko mentions having found him hugging the laptop, even ignoring the fact that Alter-ego's main avatar looks exactly like Chihiro and that the real Chihro was male. He also gets biased with Kiyotaka Ishimaru when Alter-Ego adopts an avatar of Mondo Owada, Taka's first and Only Friend (Subverted if Makoto completed his Free Time Events) who was executed in the previous trial due to him being Chihiro's killer. Taka decides to use Alter-Ego as way of coping with Mondo's death, which triggers Hifumi's jealousy. Celestia Ludenberg, one of the people Hifumi was closest to, decides to take advantage of the situation and use Alter-Ego as a way of manipulating Hifumi into murdering Ishimaru only to finally kill him herself once his part was done. His relationship with Alter-Ego already sounds wrong to begin with, but what really crosses the line is the fact that he murdered an innocent man for a crime he did not commit without asking him for details (Celeste told Hifumi that Taka took Alter-Ego away and also made a False Rape Accusation against him, and Hifumi fell for all of that despite Celeste having no proof of either event whatsoever) all for the sake of "his feelings".

  • An in-character example in Bittersweet Candy Bowl - David ships Paulo with Daisy, but Paulo sees Daisy as "a kid" as well as having some rather siblingish feelings for her, though on the other hand, there might be something there. Still, he denies it, probably not in the least in part because she is the most physically underdeveloped character, despite being his age (and older than love interest Lucy).
  • Drowtales:
    • There's some subtext between Snadhya'rune Vel'Sharen, the effective Big Bad of the story, and Ariel, the protagonist. This scene has Snadhya'rune talk about getting her claws into Ariel (who at the time is the physical equivalent of a 7-year-old child, just to add to the pedo vibes), and she recruits female agents at the school through sexual favors. Add to that Ariel is the biological daughter of Snadhya's lover Mel'arnach, who herself was recruited while Snadhya was her teacher and the subtext becomes really unfortunate. When they actually meet for real much later in the story Snadhya acts civil enough, but this is clearly intended to get Ariel's guard down and had Kalki not ruined things by chopping off Ariel's arm it's a decent bet things would have gone further.
    • Later on Snadhya gets this with another character who unfortunately for him is in the same room, Jiaan, the bodyguard of Snadhya's niece Yami'ni who first got captured by her Empaths and Mind Raped for what's implied to be weeks and then trotted out a completely broken man who is forced into a sadistic fight to the death as part of a deluded fool's Engagement Challenge, and while he manages to win his "reward" is nothing if not similar to being lobotomized and Snadhya's clearly predatory declaration that "he is mine" after receiving her "safe" taint is the icing on the Squick cake.
    • Snadhya's (adopted) twin sister Khaless is no slouch to this trope, considering that she's a shapeshifting Eldritch Abomination Mind Hive made up of the souls of people she's absorbed over the years, including the original Khaless. As soon as it became clear that she had slept with Kharla'ggen, whose own unique form of Demonic Possession more or less leaves her with the mental capacity of a child the forum reacted with near universal DO NOT WANT.
  • Girl Genius:
    • Lucrezia-In-Agatha/Klaus in Bad Future. Lucrezia takes over her own daughter's body and then mind-controls Klaus, her old lover and father of said daughter's Love Interest, to force him to marry her (still in Agatha's body!) and use him as a puppet.
    • Lucrezia-In-Agatha with anyone. Even Mad Scientist characters in the story are squicked out by the very idea.
  • El Goonish Shive. This is Tedd's reaction to the thought of Nanase, his cousin, involved with anyone.
  • The Order of the Stick:
    • Tsukiko is a necromancer who likes undead. LIKE likes undead. Even Xykon is squicked by this.
    • Belkar can do this In-Universe thanks to taking the "craft distubing mental image" feat.
  • Sluggy Freelance proudly presents you with Sam/Zombie-Head-On-A-Stick. Yes, that's a guy named Sam shipped with the rotting head of a zombie that's been stuck on the end of a stick.

  • The Homestuck Epilogues: Ultimate Dirk using his narrative powers to brainwash Rose in to joining his plan to leave everybody on Earth C and start the "most important Sburb session." His controlling actions would be bad enough on their own, but making matters worse is that Dirk is Rose's genetic father (although because they're from different timelines, they're the same age). Even though Incompatible Orientation is involved, the Epilogues still had subtext about this, like Dirk telling the reader to get their head out of the gutter after he narrated something that sounded dirty out of context, and Dave openly bringing up the incestuous undertones before Roxy tells him to change the subject.
  • Touch (2017) has Father, a serial child molester with mind control powers, using said powers on Casper, a thirteen-year-old boy. The subtext of the scene is... very clear. Luckily, Casper is able to use his own powers to get out of there before things progress too far.

    Western Animation 
  • Adventure Time:
    • The Ice King is seriously creepy. He kidnaps princesses (or outright brainwashes them) so often that most characters treat it as a common nuisance. He does this because he tries to force them to marry him, and the way he justifies himself and his actions channels every abuser/stalker/rapist trope in the book. Then he transfers all of that obsession towards Finn and Jake (a 13-year-old boy and a dog, respectively), trying to get them to love him by doing things like using a paralyzing potion on them and forcing them to do stuff with him. It can be interpreted as him wanting a friend, but then there's that fanfiction he wrote in which a Gender Flipped Finn declares her undying love for the Ice King.
      • He does get better in later seasons though. He stops kidnapping princesses and the rapey/abusive aspects of his personality are downplayed. Now he's mostly just a weird, lonely old man.
    • In the aforementioned fanfiction, the Ice Queen is just as creepy towards Fionna (if not moreso), impersonating her crush and taking her on a date.
    • Thanks to the crown messing up his memory, Ice King is ignorant of the father-daughter relationship he and Marceline used to share. He once offers to hug her after she confesses she cares for him... and promptly attempts to kiss her. She shoves him away and yells disgustedly "Ugh, not like that!"
  • Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers episode "Ariel" implied that Niko had a slight crush on her captain, Zachary Foxx, at one point. This is pretty reasonable. Zach's got a lot of Mr. Fanservice factors working in his favor. However the (likely) unintentional resemblance she has to Eliza (Zach's wife) makes it a little creepy. That Maya Danzinger voiced Eliza in her only "live" appearance while Laura Dean (Niko's actress) voiced Eliza in "Space Sorcerer" and "Psychocrypt" (both times, turning out to be someone's attempt to Mind Screw Zach)... well, this makes it a lot creepy.
  • In Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic disguised himself as Robotnik's first love, Lucinda, and tricked him into marrying him.
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender:
    • In "The Waterbending Scroll" Zuko's approach on Katara was really disturbing. From exactly what harm from the pirates does he claim he will protect her? He teases her while putting her necklace back, but it's actually an engagement necklace, so putting it on while immobilizing the girl would be a forced marriage. It's strongly implied/pretty much confirmed in one of the North Pole episodes that even Katara didn't realize that her necklace was an engagement necklace, so it's pretty unlikely that Zuko (who isn't from either Water Tribe) knew. That they were both unaware that he was taunting her with an engagement necklace may or may not make the scene even creepier.
    • Azula has some seriously creepy subtext towards almost everyone, especially towards her brother Zuko, who most of the time she tries to kill. The scene where he questions her about one of her latest schemes in the middle of the night has her acting as close to The Vamp as a PG show could get with an adult woman talking to an unrelated man, so it's quite frankly a miracle that this fourteen-year-old's interactions with her sixteen-year-old brother made it past the censors.
  • The Batman has The Joker's Foe Yay subtext with "Batsy." One episode has The Joker run to Batman, declare how much he's missed him, and actually glomp him much to Batman's utter disgust.
  • Batman Beyond:
    • "Out of the Past." Ra's Al Ghul. In Talia's body. Flirting with Old!Bruce, complete with a smooch. The awkwardness is off the scale. Bruce even points it out later:
    Terry: Lady, you are creeping me out!
    Bruce: You? She kissed me.
    • In the earlier Batman series, Batman (and some fans) have this reaction when learning of the relationship between Baby Doll and Killer Croc.
    Batgirl: What do you suppose they do on a date?
    Batman: I don't want to think about it.
  • Codename: Kids Next Door
  • Danny Phantom:
    • Danny and Vlad. Vlad's first appearance alone has him creeping into Danny's room just watching the boy struggle in his sleep, and the multiple attempts Vlad has tried to lure Danny into the dark side, when taken in a different context, sounds almost seductive. And of course "Eye for an Eye" which is a treasure trove of subtext quotes ("I'm rubbing your nose in this mess you made, Daniel, doesn't it smell yummy?" and "You forgot to take your supplements, have a dose of vitamin-ME!" for example) and has them seeing each other naked. Then there's the prepubescent female clone of Danny that Vlad made... whom he only planned to use to perfect a male clone. Given Vlad's obsession with Danny's mother and desire to make Danny his son, Freud would definitely have something Oedipal related to say about it. Even though the series passes Vlad's behavior off as Stalker Without a Crush, it's still creepy to think about.
    • Dark Danny and Danny have one-sided No Yay, with Dark Danny being the one generating it. At one point, he forces a Time Medallion inside Danny's body while Danny screams in pain.
    • Technus definitely gives off some pervy vibes, at one point asking Danny "Who's your daddy?"
    • An in-universe example with the Box Ghost and Lunch Lady. Danny, Sam and Tucker are all bothered by this relationship happening in the future.
  • Ed, Edd n Eddy:
    • In the infamous episode "Your Ed Here," Kevin blackmails Eddy into making Eddy kiss Edd on the lips. Eddy does kiss Edd, and both of them act disgusted after the whole thing.
    • In the Valentine's Day special, Eddy sets up a kissing booth. Eddy puckers his lips up, only to find Kevin instead of another girl. Eddy's response?:
    Eddy: In your dreams!
  • Family Guy:
    • Quagmire, an unattractive and a horny bastard who frequently has sex (consensual or not), generates this constantly. Worse, most of his behavior is Played for Laughs.
    • The page image shows the time in "Barely Legal" where Meg develops a Yandere interest in Brian (the family's talking dog) after he drunkenly kissed her at her prom. When things go a little too far, Brian talks to Lois about it, only to earn a few punches to the face. This led to an attempt on her part to kidnap and rape him, only to be intervened by her parents.
    • Brian himself has an unhealthy obsession with Lois, and he even has Stewie (a talking baby) making infrequent advances on him.
      • Brian's son Dillon prompts Stewie to call him "handsome and muscular" and try to engage in sexual activities with him.
      • And then of course there's the infamous episode where Brian romantically pursues Meg's friend Patty.
    • Meg's brief relationship with Adam West, who is way older than her, and it was revealed that he branded his initials on her ass. Granted, West explicitly said that he wasn't going to pursue her sexually until she was eighteen or twenty-one and breaks up with her when he realizes that their relationship could get them both in trouble. A much later episode stated that they still went on dates now and then, said episode airing very shortly before he became her uncle via marriage to Lois's sister, making the relationship that much more squicky in hindsight.
    • Herbert's (a creepy old guy) interest in much younger guys like Chris and even in kids like Stewie.
    • Stewie's obsession with his mother Lois flip-flops between wanting to kill her and just wanting her.
    • Peter (Meg's dad) once had her kiss him on the lips and it was implied that they slept together once.
    • Peter orders Chris (his son) to take Lois' place while she is away. Chris, playing Lois, sits next to Peter and compliments his muscles. Peter plays along and promises an obscene sex for that night.
      • There's another time where Peter gave Chris a ring and asked him to marry him.
    • In-universe example: Chris and Meg were in Halloween costumes and didn't recognize each other. They ended up playing "Seven Minutes in Heaven". It's not clear what they did for 7 minutes in the closet, but when they discovered who they other was Chris cried "We did so much!".
  • Gargoyles:
    • Thailog and Delilah. Thailog introduces Delilah with the phrase "She'll do anything for me", makes it clear that she and the other clones have been programmed to obey his every whim, and she calls him "master".
    • Thailog's behavior towards Elisa in his introductory episode. He touches her face and calls her "my dear" while she's handcuffed to the wall of an oil rig, and makes it clear that he intends on killing her along with Sevarius, Xanatos, and Goliath. He thinks of Goliath as one of his fathers, and Word of God is that Thailog has something of an Oedipus Complex.
    • Sevarius's behavior toward the unconscious Angela in the episode Monsters. He's toying with her hair while she's still unconscious, and orders his assistants to "be gentle" while "collecting the necessary samples." Yikes.
  • Generator Rex
    • The FoeYay between Rex and Van Kleiss, given how squicky Van Kleiss himself is. "You are very important to me, Rex" indeed. Van Kleiss's persistent efforts to get Rex to join The Pack, plus "I've been watching you for some time now" don't do anything to make him less of a creep.
      • The squick factor isn't helped by the flashback in one of the later episodes. Apparently, Van Kleiss has known Rex since he was a young child (roughly 7 or 8 years old).
    • Breach comes across as a particularly horrifying type of yandere in the episode named after her, in which she traps Rex in her own personal pocket dimension and refers to him as her "new favorite."
  • Invader Zim has Zim and Dib with their unhealthy and near-sadomasochistic obsession with each other, despite Dib being 12 and Zim being older than any human alive.
  • The Legend of Korra:
    • Amon's behavior towards Korra has a lot of scary rape vibes. Same goes for Amon's behavior towards Tahno when he was taking Tahno's bending away and Tahno was begging him not to do it. In the finale it's revealed Amon is a bloodbender and ends up taking away Korra's bending (or most of it) and then says "I told you I would destroy you."
    • In episode eight it is revealed that Tarrlok is a bloodbender who can bloodbend without a full moon and his behavior towards Korra gets a lot of rape vibes as well. He used his creepy powers to kidnap her and was planning to start a new life with her as his hostage.
    • Eska and Bolin. While it was seen as comic relief, Eska's behavior drifts off into dangerous territory. The scene where she "proposes" to Bolin is the reason why this couple is here. Fans who have seen this claim that the necklace Eska gave Bolin looks like a BDSM collar. There have also been thoughts about what their first night together would have been like, some of them including Desna watching the couple have sex. What completes this is Eska's face when she's approaching Varrick's yacht. Even though Love Redeems Eska, you still can't help, but wonder what brought on her violent and possessive behavior.
  • My Life as a Teenage Robot: Vexus's obsession with Jenny.
  • For some reason, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic has a few examples:
    • "The Return of Harmony" has Discord get uncomfortably close to Twilight Sparkle. As in, constantly invading her personal space, wrapping an arm around her, grabbing her, and at one point he strokes her face. He also displays a suspicious amount of glee as he slowly breaks her and drives her off of the Despair Event Horizon (as opposed to the other ponies, who he gives a quick brainwashing to and then leaves alone). If his comments to Celestia ("Did you miss me, Celestia?") are any indication, this is just how Discord treats all his foes, which could make it slightly better or much, much worse.
      • Even after he's reformed, Discord still does this to Twilight in "Three's a Crowd", and it is all very uncomfortable. Out of all the times he gets, erm, physical with the ponies only one hug from him in the Season 4 Finale is actually reciprocated.
      • Twilight's not the only one who gets this treatment. In "Make New Friends But Keep Discord" he teleports into Spike's bed under the covers while he's sleeping, wakes him up, glares into his eyes from less than six inches away, and asks where Twilight is before poofing away again. Poor Spike is left huddled in the fetal position with the covers wrapped around him, shivering.
    • In "Hearts and Hooves Day" Cheerilee and Big McIntosh become an overly cutesy couple... because they had been slipped a Love Potion and were not entirely conscious of their own actions, drawing a disturbing parallel to date drugs.
    • The episode "Flutter Brutter" introduced Fluttershy's brother Zephyr Breeze; he regularly flirts and gets too close for comfort for Rainbow Dash, who is shown to be clearly not okay with this. Later episodes show that, it goes way beyond her just being not okay with it, she is very well aware of what he wants, and is actively disgusted by him to the point of nausea.
  • In Phineas and Ferb, Jeremy's sister Suzy behaves almost like a huge Yandere around him.
    • There are a lot of episodes that tease Foe Yay between Dr. Doofenshmirtz, a gonky middle-aged human scientist, and Perry, and a tiny anthropomorphic platypus. The scenes can be heartwarming, but other times they can be disturbing, such as "The Remains of the Platypus" when Doof (who spends much of the episode in his underwear) brainwashes Perry to be his servant.
  • In an early episode of Samurai Jack, Jack meets a female warrior named Ikra, who joins him on his quest! (Aww!) The two of them get along and even seem to flirt! (How sweet!) Ikra turns out to be Aku! (AUGH ABANDON SHIP ABANDON SHIP)
  • The Simpsons:
    • Smithers' crush on his boss, Mr. Burns who's old, very skinny, ugly, and evil.
    • "Marge Gets a Job", Marge got a job at the nuclear plant and Mr. Burns developed a thing for her.
    • A Willy Wonka Expy becomes Bart's business parter, and Homer has to say the following about this:
    Nothing makes a parent happier than when an eccentric single man takes an interest in their child!
  • South Park:
    • In "Chef Goes Nanners", Wendy and Cartman, who are usually enemies, pair up for a debate and subsequently fall so hard in this that Wendy dreams about Cartman riding into a mountain meadow, shirtless, on a white horse.
    • Cartman and "Mr. Jefferson" in "The Jeffersons". Stan even has a dream about them almost making out!
    • Cartman and Scott Tenorman, especially in "201" when Scott begins grabbing Cartman... and getting awfully close to his face... This quickly goes into squick territory when it's discovered that Eric and Scott are half-brothers.
    • Cartman's unhealthy obsession with hating on and making Kyle suffer. Considering he only saved Kyle solely to rip on him further and another time just for him to suck his balls, his rivalry with him is more than creepy...
    • Cartman's treatment of Butters, whether he's just bullying Butters or manipulating Butters to be his sidekick, often slips into sexual subjugation subtext. "Cartman Sucks" is the crowning example, in which Cartman pranks Butters by drugging him with cough syrup at a sleepover and taking a photo sucking Butters' penis (and later tricking Butters into doing the reverse), which is essentially rape (played for laughs). "Stunning and Brave" also has Cartman sniffing Butters' underwear.
  • SpongeBob SquarePants and Squidward given his creepy obsession with him. Don't see it? Come on! They're like brothers, only closer.
  • In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the very first time Ahsoka met Cad Bane, he electrocuted her twice — first to knock her out, then just for the fun of it — handcuffed her, caressed her head in a rather creepy manner, before taking her Padawan Braid as a trophy. Much later, when Ahsoka protected an unconscious Anakin from him, he left, promising her a dance at an other time. Then there's Garnac, the leader of a Trandoshan hunting party, who hunted Ahsoka and other kidnapped Jedi children on a jungle moon. He provided lines like these:
    Garnac She (Ahsoka) can't hide for ever! Mark my words, I'll have her skin, and nail it to the wall for killing my son!
    Garnac A valiant effort little younglings. Esspecially You, togruta. You'll be a prized trophy of my collection.
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987) has Shredder and Krang, two villains who always bicker Like an Old Married Couple. Keep in mind that one of them is a slimy brain monster.
  • Teen Titans:
    • Slade embodies this trope on multiple occasions. The ridiculous amounts of Foe Yay with Robin, his not at all wholesome partnership with Terra, his highly suggestive Mind Rape of Raven and suggestive lines/actions towards her in "Birthmark"... the man causes a lot of this. Made even worse because Slade/Terra is a canon pairing in the comic. (Though Terra is far, far, far more evil there.)
    • Trigon, Raven's demonic father, and Raven.
    • Fang, a guy with a spider for a head has Kitten as a girlfriend and they once are shown kissing.
  • There are those who choose to see Prowl and Lockdown of Transformers Animated in a slashy light. Why is this disturbing? Because one of them is Lockdown. There is no good way for someone else to wear your body parts.
  • The way Cedric from W.I.T.C.H. acts around Elyon makes him seem like a predator trying to groom her. His constantly low pitched and slithering tone of voice are certainly at least a little unsettling. It doesn't help that Cedric is a grown man while Elyon is a middle schooler.
  • In The Venture Bros., the Interrupted Intimacy between Dr. Venture and Dr. Quymn is No Yay, if you interpret the episode as subtly hinting that they are half-siblings. In-universe, Dr. Venture has his own reasons for being squicked out in hindsight:
    Dean: Dr. Quymn is the wereodile!
    Dr. Venture: She's... Oh, my God, I almost fucked a wereodile!
    Ginny: She's not a wereodile! She's an epileptic.
    Dr. Venture: Ew!


How well does it match the trope?
