Stalker With A Crush / Fan Works

Go To

Cardcaptor Sakura

  • Tomoyo Daidouji is this, as mentioned in the Anime and Manga section of Stalker with a Crush, but it gets taken massively out of proportion in some Fan Fiction. For Example, in these chapters of Takamichi Nanoha of 2814, she hires a team consisting of Deathstroke the Terminator, David Cain, Deadshot, Tatsumiya Mana, and Lady Shiva to guarantee the safety of her crush, Sakura. As well as ordering illegal nuclear weaponry and carries around two "Lex-Blaster 500s". All of which turn out to be worth it during the confrontation with the Big Bads during chapter 10. Going even beyond that she started a religion based around worshiping Sakura.

Code Geass

  • Code Geass: Lelouch of Britannia:
    • Lelouch mistakes Kallen for one of these
    • Played straight with Lelouch's reminiscences about some of his more "dedicated" fangirls in the past, which is why he actually comes to the conclusion he does about Kallen (that, and he's a bit of a naïve idiot when it comes to women, presumably because he's been privately educated as an Imperial Prince rather than attending a posh yet otherwise normal high school.



  • Sayaka Maizono is not only characterized as one towards Makoto Naegi in The Idol's Guide to becoming Psychic, but also developed psychic powers for the purpose of having access to his thoughts and feelings at all times.

Death Note


  • In DC Alterverse Maxima, Maxima chases after Superman, although her interest is purely born of a royal duty to produce strong heirs. Differently from her original version in comics, however, she takes Superman's refusal quite well. It also helps that, in that story, she is a very closeted lesbian, only searching for a male mate because she had her royal duty internalized really hard. She eventually decides to come out of the closet and metaphorically flip the middle finger to said duty. The story's villain Vernax, on the other hand, fits the darker versions of this trope, chasing after Maxima and being really Not Good with Rejection. He imprisons her in his spaceship, but she turns tables (with a good help from Lana Lang) and pummels him down.
  • In Kara of Rokyn, Jara is unhealthily obsessed with the main character, and she doesn't react well when she is rejected. Eventually she mellows down and accepts she and Kara can only be friends.
  • In A Force of Four, U-Ban is determinated to have Power Girl, willingly or by force. Too bad for him, Karen pummels him to the ground when he attempts to force himself upon her.
  • In Hellsister Trilogy, Brainiac-5 is still in love with Kara, but he has to accept she doesn't love him back.

Fire Emblem

  • Soleil in A Brighter Dark, a Nohrian messenger who repeatedly harasses and flirts with Laslow, driving him mad.


  • In Forward, the Academy agent named John is strongly implied to be one of these towards River. Made even creepier by the fact that, while he really does care about her, his goal is to bring River back to the Academy so they can continue to Mind Rape her to make her "better," and he is convinced that this is the right thing to do.


Happy Tree Friends

  • Flippy is usually portrayed as this in fanfiction. Most stories involve Flippy and Flaky, in which Flippy either rapes Flaky or kills her while she is terrified of him and tries to get rid of him. In the cartoon, the situation is pretty similar, because Flippy has killed Flaky many times, but when he acts nice to her, she is afraid of him and runs away... or stabs him.

Harry Potter

  • Arcturus Black is one to Harry in If Them's the Rules, staking out Diagon Alley for weeks for a chance to talk to him.
  • In The Day the Dursleys Came to Hogwarts Moaning Myrtle admits to following Draco around everywhere while invisible and doing things like watching him take a shower.
  • In Harry Potter Daydreaming Pills Ginny has a "Harry Potter box" filled with everything from partially-clothed photos of him to some of his boxers and admits in public that she made a statue of him in her bedroom.
  • Romilda Vane in A Question of When is obsessed with Harry Potter, to the point that when she somehow gains the power of Mental Time Travel at some unspecified point in the future, she goes back in time not to save the Wizarding World... but to try and convince Harry that they would be perfect together. She spends countless lifetimes Save Scumming to try and figure out the best way to seduce him and ends up accidently rewriting reality along the way.
  • In Ninja Wizard Book 2 Ginny sends hexed letters to Cho Chang to get her to break up with Harry. In a later story in the series she tries giving him Amortentia, not knowing that it gets stronger with age and, had he ingested it, would've resulted in him raping her right in the Great Hall.
  • In Iterate Ginny uses an amulet that can rewind time repeatedly to try to get Harry to fall in love with her. After a certain number of uses Harry remembers all of the past timelines, replaces the amulet with a convincing fake and decides to let Ginny die during second year as extra insurance that nothing like this can ever happen again.
  • crawlersout: Gellert Grindelwald has got it so bad for Fem!Harry that he's willing to search for masters of forbidden magicks even he wouldn't touch just for the sake of finding her while she's on vacation. This is an especially egregious case because Harry is guaranteed to return home soon for the start of her ward's next school year — Grindelwald just refused to wait that long to meet her again (even though it's, at most, one or two months after the last time he saw her).
  • In Lions, Snakes, and Babies Ginny steals Harry's sperm and impregnates herself under the belief that if they have a baby together, he'll want to be with her.
  • Parodied in How To Seduce Tom Riddle. The narrator advises any fangirl of Voldemort to stalk him mercilessly during his school days, up to and including following him to the Chamber of Secrets. Then the narrator concludes that if Tom Riddle doesn't kill you after that, maybe you do mean something to him – unless, of course, he is saving you up to feed you to Nagini.

The Hunger Games

  • Obsidian in Some Semblance of Meaning. Instead of practicing with weapons in the Training Center (not that he needs to), he stands around and watches the other tributes... and takes special notice of Vale Whitaker. Later, after they have gone into the arena, he locates Vale and her district partner while they're asleep, but instead of killing them, he just watches them for a brief time, takes a pair of laurel crowns Vale wove, and leaves them be. And the next day, he shows up there again and makes sure Vale sees him this time and, again, doesn't harm her. This makes her feel very paranoid, but he actually does have good intentions and isn't portrayed too negatively for these actions, and although Vale does not find stalking romantic, she does come to return his feelings eventually.

Jackie Chan Adventures

Kim Possible

  • Deconstructed in The Worst Possible Sitch. 13-year old Wade had a Precocious Crush on Monique and used his smarts to hack cameras so that he could follow her around all day. His mother found out about it and made him stop. She then lectured Wade on crushes, the birds and the bees, stalking, and sexual harrassment.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

The Legend of Zelda

Marvel Universe

  • Lullaby from Ultimate Sleepwalker has a crush on Rick, something he's less than thrilled about (doesn't help that she's underage). She won't take no for an answer and repeatedly tries to brainwash him into being her boyfriend.

Mega Man (Classic)

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

  • Itsuki in this music video.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

  • Becoming Ponies example: Pinkie Pie encounters a rather enthusiastic woman who she's okay with letting stroke her mane. Once the woman starts making sexual advances, however, she is thoroughly creeped out.
  • In The Games We Play, Rainbow Dash finds herself stalked by one of her friends disguised as Mare Do Well. The catch? She doesn't know who it is, so Mare Do Well makes the pegasus a bet; that Mare Do Well will be able to get Rainbow Dash to fall in love with her before Rainbow Dash can discover her true identity. The result is some kind of hybrid romantic mystery/psychological thriller.
  • In the Pony POV Series, Sergeant Thunderchild (Shining Armor's Number Two) claims to fall in Love at First Sight with Fluttershy, despite only ever having seen pictures of her. Shining and Cadence both call him out on how creepy it is. Interestingly enough instead of stalking her at the Wedding, once the Changelings are defeated, he simply asks her on a date.
  • Sophistication and Betrayal has a completely serious example when Rarity ends up being stalked by Slate, which is portrayed as being as extremely upsetting and creepy.


  • Chapter 14 of Rorschach's Blot "What If" collection of Naruto oneshots titled "I Did It, My Way" has Hinata as a Stalker With A Crush who breaks into Naruto's apartment to take hair from his drain, steals his clothes (while leaving new things for him), and breaks in occasionally while he's asleep to strip him down and measure him so she can buy him new clothes. He takes this in stride, believing it to be the work of the "Clothes Fairy". It's played for laughs, and is far from the weirdest part of the story.
  • Played with and discussed in Destiny is a Hazy Thing. Played with in that Karin is more attracted to Kiba's charkra and tends to do rather... weird things to stay close to him, (edging towards him in any situation, sleepwalking into his bed to cuddle him) however she has no (conscious) control over it. Discussed when Kiba says they should just take her away from him. Ino points out that if they did that, Karin would go from accidently doing this trope to a full on Yandere willing to kill ANYONE she thinks will come between her and Kiba (with the fact that she'd be willing to rape him to have his kids left unsaid but implied).
  • In the AU The Locked Series, Aburame Shino is initially portrayed as this towards Tenten.
  • Subverted in Son of the Sannin. Hinata starts off like her canon counterpart as a girl who admires Naruto from afar because her cripplingly low self-esteem keeps her from talking to him directly, but Shizune's intervention causes the two of them to become close friends at a young age and have a more standard Childhood Friend Romance.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

  • Evangelion 303: Saburo is trying to get Kaworu back using all means that he can think of. However his antics are managing the opposite effect, and Kaworu is beginning to actively dodge him.
  • HERZ: Kurumi to Shinji. She has been chasing him since they met in high-school, and she is unable to take a "No" for answer. She even got him drunk and slept with him several years ago, and even though he got married she has flirted with him, has thrown herself naked at him, has blackmailed him to kiss her… and he always refuses -or runs away-, but she never listens.


  • Valdera spends most of Pokémon Master chasing after Ash and trying to talk him into getting back together, despite Ash telling her they're done.
  • In his second sidestory of Pokémon Reset Bloodlines, Ash's Butterfree meets a female Vivillon who confesses to have been watching him for quite a while. When he asks if she's been stalking him, she replies that she just wanted to spar with him, but at the end of the oneshot she not-so-subtly drops the hint that she's actually attracted to him.

Sgt. Frog

  • Yin and Yang Series: Romama, who secretly watches Aya Kumori's ballet practice from the rafters. Though after they formally meet each other, they begin a healthy relationship.


  • Baker School Blitz has this as a consequence of Jim being obsessed with Mr. Lestrade. Lestrade doesn't go into too much detail, but he did have to change his number a few times because of it, something that unnerves John.

The Simpsons

  • Bart Simpson: Attorney at Law: Jessica Lovejoy for Bart, having learned that the kid hellion has become a successful attorney. Not caring about the stress she is causing Bart, she declares him to be hers. Then she begins badmouthing Alex, following him around, and demanding his whereabouts from his co-workers. She evolves into full-blown Yandere by kidnapping Bart and trying to drug him into saying a marriage vow.

South Park

  • Like Pinning Butterflies makes no secret of Craig's obsession with or stalking of Tweek. It's the main plot of the story.


  • Ultimate Spider-Woman has a particularly twisted version in Ronald Hilliard, a teenage boy who's a guest at a high-class party that's attacked by Spider-Woman's Arch-Enemy Jack O'Lantern. When Mary Jane Watson goes into action as Spider-Woman to protect the party guests, Ronald gets it into his head that she was there to protect him specifically. His crush on her then drastically escalates, as he goes from wallpapering his bedroom with images of Spider-Woman and turning it into a combination Room Full of Crazy and Stalker Shrine to her, to spending his entire $5 million trust fund on gaining superpowers. As the Psycho Electro Supercharger, he begins murdering Spider-Woman's detractors as a means of proving his affection for her. He culminates in full-on Yandere mode when the disgusted heroine calls him sick and depraved, and then becomes determined to kill her, developing a If I Can't Have You... mentality in the process.

Touken Ranbu

  • Tales of the Undiscovered Swords has Hatsuzakura, a Camp Gay sword who Thinks Like a Romance Novel and develops an unhealthy obsession with Ōkurikara, to the point where the latter has to go to the saniwa to complain about his stalking behavior and ask to be moved to a room far away from his… which ends up with the "saniwa" turning out to be Hatsuzakura impersonating them so he can get close to Ōkurikara.


  • Luminosity has this between Demetri and Allirea. The former is a vampire, which means mate bonds are supposed to be automatically mutual. He genuinely doesn't understand that her Dhampir status makes her immune to bonding, so he sees her trying to get away as a game.
  • In The Not So Short Second Life of Bree Tanner and its suppliment fic, Ashes through an Hourglass, by Oy Angelina, Bree has a major problem with Alec of the Volturi's infamous Jane-and-Alec following her around until he finally abducts her.
