Even the Girls Want Her

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to: navigation, search
Now imagine what the guys think of her.

Phoenix: She must have some sort of strange power over [men].

Maya: You're not kidding. Two people in one day. Even I want to profess my love for her.

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

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

This illustrates the major difference between the gender versions of this trope. The male "admirers" in the case of Even the Guys Want Him often mingle equal amounts jealousy, anger, or frustration into their admiration, often due to Stupid Sexy Flanders. But perhaps due to the concept of the Romantic Two-Girl Friendship, the female admirers in the case of Even The Girls Want Her rarely display any negative connotations to their admiration (or attraction). They'll follow the cool girl around like a pack of lovesick puppies, and never think twice about it. The Love Interest of said girl (be male or female) might be more likely to elicit said reactions, though, but that's a case-by-base scenario.

Though in some versions, there may be a bit of the Double Standard at work in why females don't seem to bother feeling bad about their crushes or attraction to other girls. In most of the western world, to a great extent a girl finding another girl attractive is "hot", while a guy finding another guy attractive is "totally gay, dude". May have something to do with female attraction being seen as more "pure" or emotionally and/or intellectually based, while of course men just want to jam it in.

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

May overlap with Bifauxnen, Cool Big Sis, The Fashionista, Onee-Sama, (sometimes) The Ojou, Tall, Dark and Bishoujo, and Hot Amazon.

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

Examples of Even the Girls Want Her include:


Anime and Manga[edit | hide]

  • Karneval: Specifically Eva to Tsukumo, as Tsukumo is the resident bishoujo.
  • Yandere Kanojo: Reina.
    • Akira is this, albeit in a different way than Reina.
    • Nanami apparently got this in elementary school.
  • Gokujou Drops: Yukio with her fan club and Komari with her Unwanted Harem.
  • Yakitate!! Japan: In an Omake, Tsukino Azusagawa is shown to be receiving a lot of love letters in her shoe box. She's in an all-girls school.
  • Tokiko from Busou Renkin. Kazuki's sister is a little too "hands on" toward her.
  • Sakura from Oniichan to Issho. Murakami Michi, a women's magazine employee interviewing Masashi - who looks like Sakura's mother Fumiko - informs him that, after meeting Sakura, she is not interested in men and delightedly says that Sakura is "just her type." She fawns over Sakura whenever she has an opportunity.
  • Ren from DearS. She has subtext with Neneko who also gropes Ren as soon as she meets her, she has subtext plus a opening-credits kiss with Miu, and then Mitsuka-sensei says to her at one point "I don't care if you're a girl, that body was made for love!" Also, she gets several fangirls at school who constantly urge her to leave Takeya and hang out with them instead.
  • In Zero no Tsukaima, Louise had gotten kissed by girls more often than she had by boys. Not to mention the number of times she is subjected to Marshmallow Hell by some of the show's bustier characters. Also in the third season Kirche seems to have developed an intense liking for her and in the opening for the fourth season there's a part where a new purple haired girl named Janette hugs a struggling Louise close and licks her face. And in episode 2 of the fourth season Janette licks Louise on the face again and practically flirts with her calling her "cute and innocent".
    • Not to mention Tiffania (who has the biggest Gag Boobs out of all the girls in the series) who gains about three female admirers by the end of the third season, and before that said female admirers tended to fawn over their token princess.
    • Or Tabitha. Kirche really adores her and fawns over her.
  • Cardcaptor Sakura: Sakura has the attentions of both Syaoran and Tomoyo. She probably inherited it from her mother, who was the subject of a tremendous (unrequited) crush by Tomoyo's mother.
    • Not to mention Kaho, who Sakura seems to 'admire' greatly and is described as really, really pretty.
  • Girls Bravo: Kirie and Miharu. In the anime Kosame develops a Psycho Lesbian-type attraction towards Kirie after she fights her. Also, Hijiri has been obsessed with Miharu since childhood but after being defeated by Kirie in a fight she starts lusting after her instead. They both express their affections towards Kirie by resorting to attempted Black Comedy Rape. A number of boys in her school are also infatuated with Kirie and Miharu, especially Fukuyama. One episode showed that Kirie couldn't even walk down the street without guys crowding around her, to ask her out on a date and the like.
  • Motoko Aoyama from Love Hina has a trio of girls who follow her around, begging for her attention, ganging up on anyone who says anything negative about her, and—on at least one occasion—being upset with her because she spends so much time in male company (since Keitaro moved in).
  • Sakaki from Azumanga Daioh, to the point of inspiring at least one outright-stated lesbian crush. Probably most notable in the episode where Kagura decides to walk along with Sakaki as they leave school, and the two of them attract a huge crowd of faceless background characters following their every step (including a sumo wrestler).
  • The eponymous Utena Tenjō of Revolutionary Girl Utena. The first episode starts off with a long montage of her being invited to join various sports clubs, and of being swooned over by both sexes—including a horde of fangirls at Ohtori (as shown in the picture above). And she elicits these reactions whether dressed as a boy or wearing the Ohtori female uniform, as proved by the episode coming after her loss at the hands of Tōga, which she tried to cope with by acting like a Yamato Nadeshiko. -- yes, the other girls were still seriously wet for her. Not to mention that Wakaba goes so far as to call Utena her "boyfriend" and is very affectionate towards her. Or how Anthy is hinted to be in love with her in the series and especially in the movie. (Anthy kisses Utena on the lips in the movie and is much more sexually aggressive towards her).
    • Juri and Miki are implied to have developed something for her as well, with Juri going so far as to joke that she might put Utena's picture in her new locket (that's something she did with Shiori whom she had a crush on).
    • And Anthy Himemiya as well, as Utena seems to be If It's You It's Okay towards her. And in episode 8 two girls fawn over Anthy (and Utena) as well.
    • Chigusa Sanjouin from the Utena Sega Saturn game also counts. She gets her share of fangirls squeeing over her when she appears in class, and Kozue is even seen dating her at one point.
    • Juri has a secret crush on Shiori who was later confirmed to have feelings for her as well.
  • In One Piece, Pirate Empress Boa Hancock. She is affectionately referred to as "Snake Princess" by all the Kuja amazons. She takes complete advantage of this by doing whatever the hell she pleases... even kicking small animals in her way. She even manages to use this widespread affection as a weapon. Her Devil Fruit power allows her to petrify anyone, so long as that person harbors lustful thoughts towards her. So far, the only person this hasn't worked on, regardless of age, gender, or species, is Luffy.
    • Earlier, after eating the Slip-Slip fruit, Alvida gained an incredibly sexy new body (made doubly incredible since she used to be a severe Gonk). Her first post-fruit appearance featured a large crowd of onlookers smitten by her beauty, including quite a few women.
    • As well as Kalifa. To quote Nami, "Wait, I'm not a man!" It's okay, Nami, we understand.
  • Bleach: Yoruichi Shihouin is a talented, sexy, fun-loving, Badass capable of getting almost anyone hot and flustered from the definitely male main character, Ichigo, to her old servant, the definitely female Captain Soi Fon. The author's colour comics also reveal other captains such as Ukitake have noticed Soi Fon's affection for her old mentor.
    • Soi Fon is definitely obsessed with Yoruichi and stalks her in an attempt to see her naked at one point. She also blushes heavily in regards to Yoruichi and tries to give her chocolate in the shape of a heart in one scene.
    • Kubo's not shy about playing up the Ship Tease between Orihime and Rukia. Orihime and Rukia also receive a great deal of (unwanted) attention from Chizuru. Matsumoto, Tatsuki, Riruka, and Loly have all demonstrating varying degrees of interest in Orihime as well. Yoshi seems to be flirting with Rukia in one scene where she tells her "You're so cute, it's making me excited." Then there's Homura, Rukia's sister from the third movie, who wants to kill the Shinigami to keep them from interfering in her relationship with Rukia, and she's also fond of glomping her.
    • Matsumoto has had guys act perverted towards her due to her sexy looks and Tatsuki once mentions that she's "beautiful" and that she never knew "Ichigo knew a babe like that." while ogling her.
    • Tatsuki has ship tease with Orihime, Chizuru has stated she'd find her attractive if not for her tomboyish demeanor, and in one chapter there's a panel depicting two girls who fangirl over Tatsuki while blushing.
  • Hinagiku Katsura of Hayate the Combat Butler gets a massive pile of chocolate on Valentine's Day... the day that, in Japan, is set aside for girls to give chocolate to the boys they like. Miki remarks that it's because she's so much cooler than the boys in their school, then offers up her own chocolates.
    • Nishizawa admits to being slightly attracted by her in a hot springs moment.
    • After consistent implications of Miki's attraction to Hina, she finally gets a chapter focused on her where her affections are made much more obvious, though still unstated.
  • In Potemayo, Nene uses a similar event as part of a story she's telling Guchuko, with a love-drama style segue into another girl giving Nene's friend Kyo (the athletic, cool girl) chocolate on Valentine's, and then going to ask Nene if the two of them are a couple.
  • Haruka Tenō of Sailor Moon seems to inspire this, with one episode of Makoto thinking she's so absolutely cool that she winds up crushing on her (despite this being after The Reveal of Haruka's real gender). When Michiru asks to dance with Mamoru, Usagi objects...until she's offered a dance with Haruka in exchange, and instantly shifts gears. Of course, considering that Haruka's more butch than some of the men on the show, maybe it would be more of a surprise if there were guys mooning after her.
    • Rei Hino also invokes the trope, being a Tall, Dark and Bishoujo Miko and the idol of her all-girls school. Even Usagi was all googly-eyed when she saw Rei for the first time. Usagi's crush on Rei is practically canon.
    • Hell, in the manga Act that introduces Rei, Usagi first meets her on a bus and then decides to follow her around because she's pretty. When Rei mistakes Usagi for an evil spirit and uses one of her "Evil Spirits Begone" talismans on her and apologizes for it, Usagi thinks to herself that she can forgive anyone who's that beautiful.
    • Usagi herself also has this trope going on, specially in the manga. Seiya certainly crushed on her, whether as a Gender Bender or Sweet Polly Oliver. And manga!Haruka was straightforward enough to steal a kiss from her, certainly...
  • Ami Kawashima from Toradora!, who is something of a selfish jerk (though she mellows out later) with a very good acting ability. Her cute 'natural airhead' persona has made most of the guys admire her beauty and personality, as well as some of the girls. None of the other main characters are fooled by it, however, including the guy whom she apparently has a crush on.
    • Maybe Taiga too, if we consider Minori to be Bi the Way for her.
  • Madoka Ayukawa from Kimagure Orange Road is a tough and highly attractive girl who is wanted (and sometimes feared) by lots of males... and TWO very persistent females: Kyōsuke's psychic cousin Akane and one-episode character Shiori from the anime.
  • Julia in Cowboy Bebop is ardently loved by pretty much every man she meets, and even local Ms. Fanservice Faye Valentine is so impressed that she describes her in otherworldly, star-struck terms.
  • In Haruhi Suzumiya, Mikuru is constantly and lovingly described as beautiful by Kyon, and both Haruhi and Tsuruya like her a lot. Yuki is even hinted to like her.
    • Yuki Nagato as well as Mikuru and Ryoko is shown to adore her.
  • In Rosario + Vampire a female student once noted that Moka Akashiya "has the kind of beauty that charms even other women." Considering the events in the first episode of the second season of the anime, this is entirely true. There's also the loli witch Yukari who harbors a crush on Moka even after joining Tsukune's harem. And that's without getting to what happens when the Moka decides to let her inner self out for one school day...
    • Also, in the second season, Yukari, Kurumu, and Mizore are shown to have screaming fanclubs of girls dedicated to them as well.
    • Also, Kokoa, Moka's half sister, is deeply in love with her vampire personality.
    • And now Akuha Shuzen is attracted to Moka too.
  • Lia de Beaumont from Le Chevalier d'Eon has won the hearts of men, women, kings, queens, and not to mention siblings.
  • Natsuki Kuga from My-HiME has both boys and girls swooning over her when she comes to class. One of the girls is Student Council President and local Ojou, Shizuru Fujino, who herself has a pool of female groupies.
    • By extension, so does Shizuru Viola of Mai-Otome, as Arika fangirls over her quite a bit in the early episodes, and Tomoe, well... let's just say she's got a crush. In a few of the Drama CDs related to the show, a then-Coral Natsuki pressed hard to get Shizuru as her room supervisor, so that she could eventually get to know "the real her".
  • Fate Testarossa of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha seems to have this going on during the second season, though it's more obvious in the manga. Not only do we see a number of girls in the class clustering around her talking about how great she is, but when Arisa gets a smile from her, she blushes and muses that it's easy to see why Nanoha likes her so much.
    • Nanoha might have Fate beat when it comes to this, considering the number of people she's befriended through sheer force of her personality (and laser beams). Or even those she hasn't, as Subaru demonstrates in StrikerS.
  • Chikane Himemiya in Kannazuki no Miko has a strong female fanbase; there's a Girl Posse that dedicate themselves to her and would go as far as to bully Himeko, who seems to get all her attention. Naturally, this doesn't sit well with either her or Souma.
  • Hazuki from Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito has female characters she's never met instantly taking a liking to her, and it seems sincere even when there's also an ulterior motive. Unfortunately for them, she could be the poster child for lesbian monogamy and is by turns oblivious or downright dismissive. They're not Hatsumi; she's not interested.
  • Haruka Nogizaka of Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu is known to have a female fanbase, which joins up in the Instant Fanclub dedicated to her (boys included).
  • Ryunnosuke of Urusei Yatsura. Yes, the female population of the school is aware that she's female and forced into Bifauxnen status by her father. They don't care—she's still hot.
  • Sylvie from Bubblegum Crisis. Priss takes to her instantly as either a best friend or a lesbian lover, depending on interpretation, and Nene admits that Sylvie even turns her on. Completely justified in that she is a purpose-built Sex Slave, and is thus literally hotter than humanly possible.
  • Akira from Kaguyahime fits this trope to a T. Very athletic and tough, she can oscillate between a Bifauxnen and an extremely sexy and well-endowed young lady, thus getting crushes from boys, girls, and creepy older women. When she eventually goes out with Yui, a somewhat cat-like androgynous boy, her Yandere stepsister Mayu comments that they look like a gay couple. Then again, gender confusion is one of the main themes of the manga.
  • Hone-Onna from Hell Girl: The Cauldron of Three has female students "admire" her so much that one of them even tried to send Ichimoku Ren to hell because they were mistaken for lovers. Not withstanding all the Les Yay earlier in the series between Honne-Onna and Enma Ai.
  • Teletha "Tessa" Testarossa gets this reaction when she introduces herself to Kaname's high school class in Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu. All the guys go "WOOOAH!" while all the girls cry "Oh she's so cute!" with accompanying love hearts. Melissa Mao also appears to have some attraction towards Tessa.
    • And Melissa Mao. During her time on the submarine, Kaname thinks about how cool and sexy Mao is.
  • Nana Osaki: the fangirls who wait for her outside every Blast show are predominantly female, and in one case they react rather jealously when Nana gives ultimate fangirl Misato a kiss.
  • When Amu Hinamori sees Nadeshiko in Shugo Chara, she comments on how if she were a boy, she'd be in love. Although this case is subverted.
  • Most of Natsumi's female classmates in Keroro Gunsou are seriously wet for her.
    • Especially Koyuki, though it's less apparent in the anime.
  • Kinko Echigoya from Binbou Shimai Monogatari receives a lot of admiration and love from her fellow female classmates.
  • Ito, the studly heroine of W Juliet, has a mostly female Unwanted Harem.
  • Valkyrie and Hydra from UFO Princess Valkyrie. In the flashback to their school days, they're both shown to have very large fanclubs at the all-girl academy they attend. (The school practically goes into a meltdown of burgeoning lesbian desire when the two are cast as lovers in the annual festival play.) Valkyrie's fangirls seem to have the Cool Big Sis worship going; Hydra's are... a little more blatant:

"Hydra-samaaaaaaa! Do whatever you want to me!"

  • Rei from Glass Mask has a huge group of female fans swooning over. Of course, that's mostly because she keeps getting mistaken for a man.
  • At least one schoolgirl in Code Geass competed for Milly Ashford's kiss in one episode. Also, Euphemia who, as someone aptly stated, is lusted after by all Psycho Lesbians in Britannia. While Nina's love for Euphie was open and blatant it's been often wondered if her older sister Cornelia secretly has feelings for her as well.
    • Shirley Fennette was also fairly popular in this regard as well. The only one amongst the student council whom sexually harasses her is Milly Ashford due to how Milly does enjoy fondling Shirley's breasts every now & then. There is also on how Shirley did once get to kiss Lelouch but it turns out to be Sayoko in disguise.
  • Setsuna Sakurazaki in Mahou Sensei Negima gets endless flirtatious remarks from Konoka Konoe (who's already kissed her for a pactio), a psychotic attraction from Tsukuyomi and has been paired with Asuna in at least one CD drama in a moment that wasn't what it looked like. She remains the series' center of Yuri.
  • Nagisa Misumi from Futari wa Pretty Cure, who is the star lacrosse player of the school team and regularly gets love letters from fangirls. The boys are not nearly as interested in her as are the girls, because there are much more beautiful girls in the school - and that is actually very disappointed for poor Nagisa. Enter her Romantic Two-Girl Friendship with Honoka Yukishiro, aka Ms. Smart and Gorgeous. The two girls then start to draw the attention of each other's fanclub to themselves as well.
    • Later in the franchise, in Yes! Pretty Cure 5, Karen has this sort of effect as well. It doesn't come up very often, though, as episodes focusing on Karen tend to concentrate on the Student Council President aspect of her school life.
    • There's also Itsuki Myoudouin of Heartcatch Precure, who has girls fall head over heels for her. Tsubomi does this as well, mostly because she's under the wrong presumption that she was a he. Even after she found out the truth, she's still struck with those feelings.
    • Doki Doki Precure has Mana lust over MakoPi on multiple occasions. Unlike the other instances there's no male love interest or denial, so this (among other things) gives Doki Doki a reputation for being very gay.
  • Reiri from Kaibutsu Oujo falls under this while at school. She welcomes this reaction, as it gives her quite a supply of very willing blood donors.
  • Through some genuine miracle, Haruhi Fujioka from Ouran High School Host Club has managed to avoid us this far. The girls want her because they don't realize she's a girl... she wears a male uniform and cuts her hair short. She's indebted to her male pals at the host club and earns money by renting herself out to other girls for companionship (not like that, though!) in the guise of a boy.
    • The Lobelia Academy girls instantly recognize her for what she is, and follow this trope to a hilt.
      • And the Zuka Club's Benio has this in spades. The fangirls compete for the privilege of making her lunch, and she has a tendency to flirt with them outrageously.
  • All the girls swoon over Najica at both of her jobs. She's like their mutual Cool Big Sis. She also ran into an heiress type on one mission and found out later that the girl had become infatuated with her. Najica wisely declined her offer of a bodyguard job, hearing the implied " wink wink, nudge nudge".
  • Sae of Hidamari Sketch: If we go by the anime, she had received Valentines' chocolates from girls when she was in junior high.
  • Oniisama e..., where almost the entire Seiran school was crazy about Rei aka Hana-no-Saint-Juste and Kaoru-no-Kimi, well and Miya-sama to some extent.
    • Not to mention Nanako, who has Mariko clinging to her as well as her relationship with Tomoko.
  • Pokémon surprisingly has this with the episode "Mandarin Island Miss Match" in which Misty is very much a fangirl for Lorelei/Prima.
    • Elesa has a great deal of fan girls cheering for her in her gym battle with Ash. It helps the fact that she is a model.
  • Persona 4: The Animation has Naoto. After she returns to school post-kidnapping and her secret comes out, she still gets love letters from girls left in her shoebox. She also wins the beauty pageant in part because she overwhelmingly wins the female vote.
  • Miyuki from Miyuki-chan in Wonderland has every female character attracted to her (though granted all are female).
  • Juliet Fiamatta Asto Capulet. She and Romeo Candorebanto Montague are the Official Couple, but after learning her true identity (after believing for years that she was a boy), her friend Emilia admits some attraction towards her as well.
  • Miwako Sakurada from Paradise Kiss is apparently so cute that even the girls want her. At least, pretty obviously heterosexual Yukari "Caroline" Hayasaka thinks she is "so cute, even I would kiss her" as if it were the most natural thing in the world.
    • Yukari herself also invokes the trope. Almost every person that meets her or gets a good glimpse of her face, describes her as "cute" or "beautiful". Also, Miwako is apparently heterosexual, but that doesn't stop her from fawning over Yukari's beauty and touching her boobs when she's taking her measurements.
  • Kiri from the manga Never Give Up looks like a male model, acts like a prince when telling her fangirls that she isn't gay, and has a very effeminate love interest. However, she wears the school's female uniform, regularly acts very much like a high school girl, and will often yell "I AM A GIRL!" when provoked (or strongly lusted over). Doesn't change the fact that half the school's female population has enormous crushes on her.
  • Mio from K-On! has this effect on girls, both outside of the music club as within.
    • Although we aren't told at first her fanclub is this at first (it's only implied that the school is girls only), the second season makes it clearly a case.
  • If you follow the theory about Yui Hongo being her Depraved Bisexual Unlucky Childhood Friend, then Miaka Yuuki from Fushigi Yuugi counts.
  • Death Note: Misa Amane is a gorgeous model, and the first time Light's sister Sayu sees her, she says, "She's my type!" and pretty much goes gaa-gaa over her. Later, it's revealed that even Rem, her Shinigami not only loves her, but is willing to die for her. Of course, she's Lightsexual, and Light has no romantic interest in anyone whatsoever that we can tell, so All Love Is Unrequited there.
    • In episode 15, upon spotting Misa a lot of girls crowd around her saying things like "Oh, she's so cute!" and "I'm your biggest fan!"
  • Kashimashi has Tomari where, especially in the anime, it seems that only the girls want her. "I was surrounded by reporters, and just when I thought it was all over... Tomari-chan leapt to my rescue!" "KYAAAAA!"... "Tomari is so cool sometimes that she makes my heart skip a beat." "She's even received love letters from girls before." "Ah, my wonderful prince." "I'm also attracted to you." "She's like a prince!"
    • Everyone, regardless of sex, species, or relation, wants Hazumu.
  • In Powerpuff Girls Z, tomboy Kaoru's first appearance is that of her escaping in a badass manner from hordes of what seems to be most of the female population in her school.
    • Of course, given how boyishly Kaoru likes to dress (when not in PPGZ uniform), it's possible that at least some of her many squealing fangirls are actually unaware that she's a girl (also because Kaoru is actually a boy's name).
  • Although it's not a major plot point, it's commented that Hikaru from Magic Knight Rayearth has a lot of other girls at her school interested in her in the manga's opening. Some of the girls in the series proper seem pretty interested in her, too.
  • Lady Oscar from Rose of Versailles is one of the first anime to introduce this. Rosalie is pretty much in love with her, and the ladies in court comment right in front of her how handsome and dashing she is, and that they wish there were men like her. Plus, when Marie Antoinette first meets Oscar, she mistakes her for a man, and states she prefers Oscar over her betrothed (who's a painfully shy, pudgy prince who likes locksmithing more than his bride).
  • Natsuru Senou of Kämpfer is a case of this in the third episode. Mostly this is exaggerated during the episode when he is transferred over to the girls side and the episode where they prepare for the beauty contest, but some after, she is barraged by girls in her class who want to get together with her. Kaede Sakura continually wants to date her, and subsequently hates him as a male.
  • Reiko Mikami. Meiko's constant fawning over her says all.
  • Matsuri Yagumo from Psyren. Sakurako has an obsessive infatuation with her.
  • Yumi Fukuzawa from Mariasama ga Miteru manages to outshine most of the other popular girls in this regard during the course of the series—even Sachiko. Sure, the setting evokes this trope, but the amount of girls standing in line to become Yumi's "soeur" is nothing short of amazing, considering how she started out.
  • All of the guys want female Maze in Maze Megaburst Space, and so do quite a few of the gals.
  • All three of the eponymous Zettai Karen Children. Perhaps ironically, Kaoru tends to attract the girls she's not interested in. She wants older, sexier women!
    • Well, she shifts focus to girls her age when she grows older—much to the dismay of the other two Children.
  • Misaki Ayuzawa of Kaichou Wa Maid-sama! is shown to have the respect of the girls within her sphere of influence, but it becomes this trope when the Maid Cafe she works at has a Ladies Day, featuring the staff in Bifauxnen mode, all of the girls instantly fall for her.
  • If you're a girl in Blood Plus, you may find yourself compelled to crawl into bed with Saya Otonashi...
  • Reika from Aim for The Ace! is an early example of the Tall, Dark and Bishoujo Onee-Sama that everyone wants to be or be with. The Les Yay undertones may not have strictly been on purpose.
  • In Gakuen Alice, this is Yuri's Alice: Making girls want her while they're in her presence. She also hates it more than anything, especially since she can't prevent it.
  • Haine from Shinshi Doumei Cross. Ushio has feelings for her.
  • Ryo from Otomen. She gets even more fangirls after the Ideal-Con, who now considers her as a prince. Even Miyabi.
  • In an absolutely hilarious twist of events in Chapter 73 of The Wallflower, Sunako becomes this trope. And to a much lesser extent, in an earlier chapter which has her becoming a Bifauxnen.
  • Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple: A quick glance at the background of this page indicates that it's not just guys who enjoy Rachel Stanley's awesome figure.
  • Esther Blanchett from Trinity Blood gets men and women smitten with her. She also shows degrees of attraction to both genders.
  • Kurumi of Steel Angel Kurumi. Saki longs for Kurumi but Kurumi is hopelessly devoted to Nakahito.
    • Nako, Uruka, and Kurumi (again) from Steel Angel Kurumi 2. Nako has Karinka, Kurumi, and her best friend Uruka in love with her. Kurumi has Saki in love with both her and Uruka. And in episode 4 Kurumi gets legions of fangirls at her school.
  • Celty Strulsen from Durarara!!! manages to pull this without even having a head or a face.
    • Also, Vorona. Mairu definitely wants a piece of her.
  • Maylene from Black Butler is subject to some blatant Les Yay when Nina Hopkins is around (which includes Nina kissing her and openly groping her breasts and thighs with some heavy breathing sound effects and hearts).
    • Also Angelina "Madame Red" Durless. She elicited attention from Grell and even her sister groped her before.
  • Kazumi Amano from Gunbuster is one of the all time reps of this trope. She's the star student (and pilot candidate) at her high school (an all-girls school yet), she defends those in need, she gives advice to her juniors, and everyone just knows she's going to be picked for the big space mission so they actually fight duels over who gets to go with her. In the last episode, all the students at her old school (where she had been teaching) cry over her leaving.
  • Vampire Knight: If dealing with her Male Harem wasn't already hard enough, Yuuki Kuran has to deal with Les Yay from Shizuka.
    • Let's not forget that Yori basically describes her "ideal person" as a mix between Yuuki and Zero.
  • Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun: Reika. Ryoko really enjoys molesting Reika and dragging her off, despite Reika's protests that she doesn't swing that way. This is also played with in regards to Shinobu, a maid of Reika's, who greatly adores Reika and thinks Shungo is not worthy of Reika, and is always trying to "execute" him.

Charlotte: Whoa! Heck, I'd do her.
Abby (whisper): Me too...

  • Played with rather well (and humorously) in Gotham Central. When Starfire comes to the GCPD to help clear up some issues with Robin (A body has been found in his outfit, but the police are unsure if it is authentic or a costume) every man stares at her slack-jawed, elicitng a disgusted "men" from Detective Romy Chandler. However, Detective Joely Bartlett smirks and points to the two gay women in the department who are also staring with the exact same expression, just as unable to control themselves as the men.

  • Darla from Just Friends. Samantha James, who's bisexual kisses her on the lips in one scene and later states that she likes girls, meaning Darla.
  • At the start of the movie Biker Boyz two women seem to invoke this trope in a third one, alltough it would seem that the woman chiming in alongside the boys with a "damn" of her own really is lesbian and probably would be interested in the women even if they weren't as hot as they are portrayed.
  • In the first Female Prisoner Scorpion film, when Matsu gets thrown into solitary but an unfamiliar prisoner who can't stop asking questions is also put in her cell, she is suspicious - so she seduces the new inmate.

In this case of her best friend this attraction has a definite sapphic edge—unfortunately Cobb has fallen in love with a man instead.
  • The title character of Friday by Robert A. Heinlein, an Artificial Human created as a corporate prostitute (but who at book's opening is more of a military courier for hire), is invariably asked for kisses by the various women she meets.

Live Action TV[edit | hide]

  • In Power Rangers Mystic Force, vampire queen Necrolai reveals her human form for the first time, and Xander openly says she's hot. The other Rangers instantly agree, with the loudest and most enthusiastic being Vida, the Pink Ranger. Of course, Vida's fit the lesbian stereotype pretty well from day one. Not to mention the fact that she was once under Necrolai's Mind Control.
  • When Julie Keaton (played by Heather Locklear) is introduced in Scrubs all the guys treat her as the hottest girl in the hospital with an emphatic "Damn!", but when Carla says it as well, Turk and J.D. look at her in surprise. When Carla says "What? She's hot." J.D. responds with "No, that's hot."
    • Another episode of Scrubs has a female intern sarcastically ask Elliot if she could get the same preferential treatment as Keith, to which Elliot replies "The only woman in this hospital that I would even consider sleeping with is Jamie in pediatrics", and then she, and all the female interns, look into the distance and sigh.
  • The female fan club for Ziva on NCIS has reached truly epic proportions. Same for Kate on Castle- the girls want them just as much as the guys do.
  • In the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 5 episode "Crush," Drusilla comes back to Spike. Harmony, his new hench-wench, says this about it:

Harmony: I told you: I don't do threesomes unless they're boy-boy-girl. Or Charlize Theron.

  • Straight women seem to instantly become bisexual for Shane McCutcheon in The L Word. In one episode, she attended a wedding where she was sleeping with both of the bridesmaids, and the mother of the bride. Even the bride herself kissed her, but Shane managed to control herself and did not let the encounter go further than that. Even Shane has standards.
  • A Will and Grace episode had Jack Karen infiltrate a self-help group of homosexuals trying to go "straight". Karen tries to bait the lesbians by telling them about her fantasy; her and Angelina Jolie on a Harley.
  • Seen on Thirty Rock when Jack's fiance Elisa claims to have a terrible secret.

Liz: Are you a man?
Elisa: Really? That's your guess? Do you want to see me naked?
Liz: Sorta.

    • Also with Liz herself. In the third episode, her lesbian friend Gretchen (who is, incidentally, Alex frickin' Cabot, a major source of this trope on her own show) has to work up the willpower to stop seeing her. Also, in Into the Crevasse, Jenna seems to enjoy watching two porn actresses representing herself and Liz make out.
  • How I Met Your Mother has a moment with Lily, who once told Marshall in reference to a hot female bartender (doubles as a CMOF):

Lily: Baby, how can you not want to hit that? I want to hit that! I'm sorry, but if you're not into her...you might be gay.
Marshall: Yeah...gay for you!

    • More commonly, Lily has dropped hints throughout the series that she has a crush on the smoking hot Robin.
  • iCarly: Shelby, through Carly. Sam seemed to get this reaction from Valerie as well.
    • Missy, Sam, and Shelby, all show signs of being attracted to Carly as more than just friends.
  • Roseanne: When Roseanne decides to hire Traci Lord's character as a waitress, she tells Jackie she'll bring in more customers. "She's so hot she even gives me a woody."
  • Olivia Benson. Hell. In-universe, the Les Yay subtext suggests that seemingly-straight Alex Cabot (see above) would be quite happy to make an If It's You It's Okay exception. As would we all.
  • In Wonderfalls, Jaye ineptly attempts to comfort her sister (who she's just found out is a lesbian) by saying that she could see sleeping with a girl if there were no men around, "especially if it was Drew Barrymore".
  • Bo, the protagonist of Lost Girl, and in-canon to boot: she's a succubus, with sex-based Mind Control powers. No, really.
  • At one point in season one of Smallville one guy tells another that liking Lana is unoriginal, he being at least the forth guy who has expressed interest in her. In season two Tina Greer realized that she was in love with Lana so she decided to take the place of Lana's boyfriend.
  • Helen Magnus on Sanctuary.
  • Glee: Quinn. Rachel's obsession with Quinn and her constant harping on how Quinn is the prettiest girl she's ever met has long crossed the point of creepiness. She's one step away from kidnapping the lady.
    • Santana and Brittany have mutual Les Yay with each other and have attracted plenty of boys.
  • Amanda Bynes on The Amanda Show has plenty of fans and one very obsessed female stalker named Penelope Taynt. Amusingly, both Amanda and Penelope are played by Amanda Bynes.
  • Two Broke Girls: Caroline asks Max to come out and see something she bought:

Max: If I'm coming out for anyone, it'd be that hot dragon tattoo chick.

  • Jane and Maura of Rizzoli and Isles are said to have enough subtext with each other to fill a body bag. They also have gotten the interest of guys and other girls before, complete with a scene where Maura is wearing Jane's suit and says that its a booty call magnet adding that she got hit on twice by women.


Music[edit | hide]

  • The bulk of "If U Seek Amy," appears to be built around this trope: "All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy..." [1]
  • "I Kissed a Girl" by Katy Perry more or less invokes this trope. "Us girls we are so magical/Soft skin, red lips, so kissable..." (the lips in question supposedly belonged to Scarlett Johansson - all in Katy's imagination, though)
  • In Ayumi Hamasaki's music video for "Green", a woman is seen eying up Ayumi. At the end of the video, they dance together.


Video Games[edit | hide]

  • In Super Robot Wars Alpha, Sleigh Presty has TONS of Les Yay with most of the female cast she interacts with, especially Selena Recital from Alpha 3, and she actually worries about this because she knows and is attracted to women, and they to her, and she's worried she'll never find a man. It doesn't help she has Well Done Sister complex in regards to her brother Filio, whom she doesn't desire sexually but does consider to be the yardstick she measures a man worthy enough to court her by. And, give how Bishounen and in touch with his feminine side he is (in Super Robot Wars Original Generation, it's revealed he's a fan of ballet and even made the ultragirly Fairlions), this REALLY doesn't help her case.
    • It also dosen't help that she sort of lost it when her brother was killed by Ibis in a training accident.
  • In SaGa Frontier, part of Asellus' package deal is the ability to make supple young women incredibly attracted to her.
  • Action Mom Louise from Fire Emblem 7. The Shorttank Rebecca practically goes goo-gaa over her because she's so beautiful and elegant as well as a deadly Straight Arrow.
  • In Final Fantasy VIII, Quistis Trepe has her own fanclub. It contains numerous women who gush over her beauty just as freely as the boys.
  • Bifauxnen Makoto Kikuchi of THE iDOLM@STER is subject to this in her all-girl school, to the point that she becomes an Idol Singer to create a more feminine image for herself and ward off female suitors. It backfires.
    • Carries over into the anime. During her photo shoot in the second episode, Makoto steps up and gives her most brilliant smile, and completely KO's the male photographer... 's female assistant.
  • In Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, EVA seems a bit too admiring when it comes to The Boss. If the player knocks her out, they can hear her moan "Boss~" in her sleep. Not to mention that even when an extremely powerful Chinese branch of the Philosophers orders her to kill Naked Snake after she takes the Philosopher's Legacy from him, she doesn't. Why? Because The Boss told her not to.
    • The plot of Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker is about a female admirer of The Boss named Dr. Strangelove developing an A.I. based on her idol.
      • And in turn, Cécile and Paz both become attracted to Strangelove, although Cécile is more comfortable with it. Paz is mostly frustrated and confused, man-style.
  • Persona 3's Mitsuru Kirijo, by virtue of Tall, Dark and Bishoujo, Authority Equals Asskicking, and Hidden Depths manages to accumulate admirers of both genders. Just ask around school.
  • Persona 4 has Naoto Shirogane, whose androgynous charms attract both boys and girls.
  • From Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, Shanoa gets some... interesting dialogue from a number of characters, mainly Laura the jeweler and Monica the seamstress. And then there are the Werebat and Lilith monsters asking to "Let's play, cute little kitty!"
    • That's even getting close to the things she hears from some supposedly asexual creatures... in fact, let's jus say EVERYTHING wants her
    • Castlevania Judgment shows that even a loli can't resist. "Just 'cause you're HOT doesn't mean you can be rude!"
  • Female Spirit Monk in Jade Empire gets a bit of this with Silk Fox.
  • The throwaway Gay Option in Knights of the Old Republic has Juhani and the player.
  • The Neverwinter Nights mod A Dance With Rogues has the player, who attracts quite a bit of attention from male and female NPCs.
  • The potential for this exists in Mass Effect, if you play a female Shepard; Blue Skinned Space Babe Liara (and yes, she's a woman, more or less) is absolutely fascinated with Shepard for various reasons, and this becomes a romantic interest... regardless of the PC's gender. You have the option to tell her to buzz off, however. And if you pick some of the more Paragon-ish background options, a lot of people will be extremely impressed with fem-Shepard... including a fair number of other women.
  • In Okami, Rao's Gag Boobs are so amazing that even God herself can't help but be distracted by them.
  • Ar tonelico: Lady Cloche has an entirely female fanclub, 100 members strong, some of whom joined after "having naughty thoughts of Lady Cloche."
  • The female Grey Warden of Dragon Age will attract not only two male members of the party and a bisexual woman, but also a number of other female minor characters who include both humans and elves. A female human noble can sleep with another woman in the prologue without so much as a Persuade check...
  • In the GBA game SwordCraft Story, you can choose to play as a girl (Pratty). The game's romantic interests will not be affected much by this, even if most of them are also girls. Most explicitly, if you get Sugar as your spiritual sidekick, she will insist throughout the game on getting married to Pratty.
  • Dia in Luminous Arc 2 has quite a notable fanbase from her students, even prompting non-Light users to sneak into her lectures, despite the information being useless to them.
  • Due to Purely Aesthetic Genders, Leaf from Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen comes off as this when you play as her.
  • Noel Vermillion of BlazBlue. Litchi Faye Ling dresses her up in cute outfits in one of her endings, and her childhood friend Makoto Nanaya is very protective of her. There's also a lot of Noel X Rachel art, and much of it is official. There are even a few female dustloop.com members that like her.
  • While the Duchess in Embric of Wulfhammers Castle is technically Even The Guys Want Her, as she receives more female attention than male, it remains that all but a handful of characters greatly admire her, and all but a handful of those want to get in her dress. It's rather depressing when considering the Final End.


Visual Novels[edit | hide]

  • Circus darling Regina Berry in Ace Attorney captivates both Phoenix and Maya within minutes of meeting them. Quoted above.
  • In Heileen not only does Heileen have a handful of male suitors, her closest female friend Marie tends to throw herself onto her when she's not trying to score with the guys (and is responsible for giving Heileen her Sacred First Kiss). One dialogue option in Chapter 5 has the flirty and vivacious Lora admitting that she had once tried being with another woman. In both cases, Heileen is torn between being totally freaked out and quietly accepting it.
  • Kyou Fujibayashi in Clannad is revealed to get a number of love letters from girls, while guys seem to find her scary. Apparently it's fairly embarrassing for her and she tries to cover up by saying that uh... maybe some of the letters are asking for advice! before ripping them to shreds.
    • In the anime adaptation, Tomoyo comments that she receives many gifts from girls.
  • Momoyo of Maji De Watashi Ni Koi Shinasai has legions of fans of both genders. Confusingly, she calls herself straight, but flirts only with the girls.
  • In Katawa Shoujo, Lilly says she has received many love confessions in the past. Before she cane to Yamaku, she attended an all girls Catholic school, thus making it likely that most, if not all, of the confessors were female. She also has a fair amount of Les Yay with her best friend Hanako.


Web Animation[edit | hide]


Web Comics[edit | hide]

  • Female Variant #5 in El Goonish Shive is an example of this trope. For the first 48 hours after being zapped, the target emits super-pheromones that make her attractive to everyone except blood relatives. Male Variant #5 was recently explained in a Q&A strip.

    • Tiffany herself has Faith attracted to her and has received a kiss from Amelia.

Web Original[edit | hide]

  • In Ilivais X, the list of girls who HAVEN'T shown interest in Mille are {{[[[Axe Crazy]] Lau}} and Electra (who've never even seen her), Alice (who's devoted to Locke anyway), and Dia. Granted, this is a universe in which humans are basically sterile and reproduction is done artificially, so sexuality doesn't matter, but there is still an inherent, albeit weakened gender barrier. Mille still expresses her surprise at being able to shatter it so easily and suddenly.
  • In Greek Ninja, crazed succubus Dolores confesses her undying love for Sasha- the reincarnated form of her ex-lover Eli. Although it's Eli she's actually after, she doesn't seem to mind the fact Sasha is a girl and even locks lips with her later.

  • In Making Fiends, Vendetta seems to get some attention from other girls. Charlotte is convinced that Vendetta is her best friend, reaching obsessive, stalker-like levels. Charlotte has also complimented Vendetta's looks. In a TV episode, Vendetta had to temporarily leave her house and stayed with Marion, who she pretended to be close friends with to spite Charlotte. This not only made Charlotte sad, but also caused Marion to feel horrible when Vendetta said she meant nothing to her, not to mention Marion temporarily turned evil from Vendetta's influence. In the web episodes, there was Rubella, a fiend made to replace Vendetta's former bodyguard, Grudge. When Vendetta thinks she has killed Charlotte off, she and Rubella go off to torture the town residents with fiends. Rubella feels so close to Vendetta, she buys her a musical toy bear that looks like something you'd give out Valentine's Day. Too bad Rubella didn't know Vendetta was melophobic...
  • Played straight with Queen Bee Young Justice. Batman mentions that she possesses the power to seduce and brainwash most men "and some women."
  • Korra of The Legend Of Korra has Mako and Bolin crushing on her at first, as well as Tahno making a brief come on to her. She even has managed to attract Asami by the series end which she happily accepts.
