Top Ten Movies, TV Series and Video Games that Contain Homosexual or Bisexual Characters but Don't Make a Big Deal of ItMartin_Canine Movies, games or series containing characters that are lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender aren't exactly a rarity nowadays. But usually the sexuality of those characters is either a plot element or a significant character trait. Now, there are also a few cases where a character's same sex orientation is treated so casually that it just stuns you, because it showcases a level of normality homosexuality and bisexuality should have in the meantime but still doesn't.
The Top Ten
I Love Undertale - JPK
Alphys and Undyne can become a couple (they are both female), also there are two (probably male) guards who can become a couple. You can flirt with characters of both genders. Overall, the world appears as if bisexuality was the norm there. - Martin_Canine
Undertale is my favorite game.
Yes, there are a few... gay characters.. only 2...
Alphys and Undyne...
But it's not a big deal!
We don't know their sex for sure, but the guards in their armor were likely male. - Martin_Canine
This show does everything it does to parade around that its characters are homosexual, what's it doing on this list at all?
Yes, it might show many gay relationships, but it never solely focuses on the fact that the characters are of the same sex. Therefore, while it has many same sex relationships, it doesn't make it a big deal - kempokid
It does make a big deal of it. But in a way that shows that gays should be accepted in society. - TwilightKitsune
I am not at all an expert of this show (might watch it more often in the future though), but from what I have seen so far the same sex relationships are not commented on and treated entirely normal. So it indeed would fit absolutely perfect for what I intended with the list.
This list is NOT about series/movies/games that feature gay characters but only in a minor role, but in which homosexuality is treated entirely normal.
For example, the movie "Bound" is about a lesbian couple so you can't avoid the topic. But it does not at one point treat their relationship unnormal at any point. You can make the exact same movie about a heterosexual couple. - Martin_Canine
This should be #1 on the list. - PerfectImpulseX
The two main characters Nanoha and Fate literally become a couple and adopt Vivio together later on in the series. I am not joking and the best part is that nobody notices they are lesbian.
How's that not gay-friendly? - PerfectImpulseX
There is nothing inappropriate about it
After finding out that Itsuki is a girl, Tsubomi said in the manga that she will still love her regardless of gender. Also, Yuri and Momoka are implied to have a lesbian relationship with each other. - PerfectImpulseX
Everybody who follows the show knows that Marceline and Princess Bubblegum are both bisexual, and even had a semi-romantic relationship in the past. - phillysports
Ah, yes. Sailor Uranus and Neptune. This was present and done well in the Japanese version, then 4kids got their dirty mitts all over the show and thought that the lesbian relationship between the sailor scouts would "affect" the children of America, so they completely removed it from the script and made them cousins. Yes, I kid you not. COUSINS. Well, that didn't help. It made it look like an incestuous relationship! - Absolite
Uranus was TERRIBLE in Crystal. SHE KISSED SAILOR MOON FOR GOD SAKE! Serena didn't even WANT that!
This series introduced us to arguably the most famous pair of lesbians (or as they call them in the Cloverway/CWi dub, "cousins") in anime history: Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune. - PerfectImpulseX
Nobody makes a big deal out of Nozomi's lesbian love affair with Eli in this series and it's so kawaii! - PerfectImpulseX
Also, in one of the Bonus CDs, there's a pretty homoerotic duet by both Nozomi and Eli named "Garasu no Hanazono". - PerfectImpulseX
Fiona, who is a housemate and friend of the protagonist April Ryan, is a lesbian, as when you start talking to her for a bit she sometimes talks about her girlfriend, who is also seen in the game. - Martin_Canine
I Really Like This Film - JPK
LeFou flirts with Gaston, but in the end has the same role as in the animated movie. - Martin_Canine
Words cannot describe how much I dislike Josh Gad's acting, but how they wrote LeFou's character in this film was very respectable.
Watch the episode called "L is for Love" and you'll see. - TLHFanBaseSucks
Luna is bae - xandermartin98
Ami and Yumi are in the "Closet Full of Love", I guess. Get it? Because "Closet Full of Love" is the name of one of their songs and it's probably about lesbianism and Ami and Yumi in this show are lesbians unlike their real-life counterparts? - PerfectImpulseX
Fun Fact: The real-life Puffy AmiYumi actually thought that their cartoon counterparts were lesbians due to their unusually close bond with each other and calling themselves best friends a lot. - PerfectImpulseX
Still did a lesbian relationship better than Adventure Time, Steven Universe, and the Legend of Korra - PerfectImpulseX
Sorry, but Jammer Lammy still deserves way more credit for coming first - xandermartin98
Kazuki and Soushi anyone? - PerfectImpulseX
I watched countless episodes of this sympathetic crime drama for years now and only just found out that Dr. Huang is gay about two months ago due to one brief remark in a sentence that has no significance to the plot or the character (he was asked about his new working district and joked about it being no good place for a gay man of Asian descent). - Martin_Canine
Dr Huang is played by the long-out-of-the-closet actor BD Wong, what did you expect?
Openly homosexual actors have often portrayed straight characters. - Martin_Canine
That's one of those wirds shows were sex assults happen
Can they do nothing but say the word rape all the time.worst part my watches it and he thinks I'm weird
Smithers, Patty, the one episode about the gay guy, etc.
The jock character who is assumed to be the females love interest the whole time comes to like the girl and asks her to meet his boyfriend. - Jackamalio
It is amazing. I love it when the zombie turns them all around the streets. or when the witch calms down and turns to a little girl once again.
When it is revealed that Yuri and Victor are to marry if Yuri wins the gold medal, no one addresses the fact that they are both guys and they are happy for them. - Absolite
This anime is cringeworthy and annoying, why is it on the list?
Coming soon... Pixar Yaoi
Korra being gay for Asami came out of nowhere. It was a really dumb note to end the show on; not because the characters shouldn't be gay, but because there was almost no development of the idea of them being gay for each other. - Jackamalio
There is no "being gay" for someone. Korra was gay and Asami was gay, they met and liked each other. - PewPewAssassin
Season 4: WOW! Didn't see Korra and Asami coming! - coolguy101
Korra and Asami! Never saw that coming.. - TwilightKitsune
The many characters are straight, gay, bi and/or trans and it gets barely addressed. Even though HIV is a topic, also straight characters in the movie have it. There is a lesbian couple in the movie and the parents of both them are happy that they want to marry. When homosexual or trans characters enter the screen for the first time they are absolutely not staged to act in any way different from other characters. - Martin_Canine
Agent Smecker, the anti-hero of the movie, is gay. But you wouldn't know except for one scene where he wakes up next to a man. - Martin_Canine
This show DOES make a big deal of their homosexual characters. Often the homosexuality is part of jokes or even is the main character trait of some people. With this list I talk about characters who have a role like any straight character would also have, except that they happen to be gay, which is only shown casually and/or not really commented on by other characters. - Martin_Canine
I've only seen the first seven seasons, but all of the gay South Park characters I've seen were very flamboyant and stereotypical. They wanted you to know the character was gay, so they made them *very* gay. It'll all for comedic purposes, of course, but I hardly think South Park belongs on this list.
Yay my favourite south park character is gay with Tweek
South Park has ben doing this whole LGBT thing for a Long time. Far before everybody became so obsessed with being Politically Correct, Social Justice and pushing agendas like PC Principal and various Tumblr users do.
The two protagonists are women who fall in love and want to escape with the money from one of the women's cruel mafia husband. The fact that they are two women does not affect the plot one bit. It's a thriller and a thriller only. - Martin_Canine
Wow, this franchise has a lot of gay/bisexual/lesbian characters: Ashley's dad, Cliff, Dylan, Glen, Marco, Eric, Alex, Fab, Paige, J.J., Miles, Nathan, Imogen, Charlie, Riley, Zoe, Fiona, Tim, Rasha, Tom, Tristan, Zane, and Vijay. - PerfectImpulseX
The good friend of Sigourney Weaver's character is gay as in one scene he appears with his boyfriend. - Martin_Canine
Theo mentions in an unimportant sentence that she lives in a polyamorous relationship with a man and a woman. Her sexuality is not ever mentioned again. - Martin_Canine
Paul is bisexual, which is only revealed when he says in one sentence that everyone of his species is bisexual. - Martin_Canine
A few characters here are seen as bisexual but none of them marry a character of the same gender.
Prince Marth isn't gay. Ike, however...
Two words: Prince Marth.
It is the first game in the series where a character marries another of the same gender, yet it doesn't stop the possibility of the same character being in a hetero one. Not really a big deal anyway, since it is pretty easy to ignore and like the game as it is.
Actually this and "Radiant Dawn" which is a direct sequel (one of very few in this series). Here we have the main hero, Ike (yes the same Ike in "Smash Bros."), ignore if not refuse the advances of female admirers and turn down the chance to become prince consort of a country. Meanwhile, the wizard Soren is extremely loyal to Ike and even says his only place is by Ike's side, and Ike does not rebuff him. Depending on how you played the two of them run off together. Notice I used masculine pronouns to describe Soren; despite his somewhat girlish figure and face and really long hair Soren is indeed male. Did Nintendo take any and every opportunity to shill this relationship or the fact that it was in the game? No.
Those who only know Ike from Super Smash Brothers may not know this, but here he gets his fair share and then some of female attention yet shuns it all and is very obviously way more than friends with a (male) mage. Had this game come out ten years later than it did, everyone would have been all over that.
Nintendo did not scream "look look gay hero! " within the game or outside it, yet the person Ike seems to really care for the most (and is not a blood relative of his) and who in the "good" ending of the sequel he runs off with is a dude.
Actual in-game quote: "There's only one place for me to be, Ike... and it's by your side."
The character who said it? Soren, the most prominent magic user in the game. Who happens to be a young man. Pretty sure everyone's aware that Ike is not a woman, either.
The main character, Tracer, is a lesbian - Teravolt1422
I want to SCISSOR her
(even though I'm a guy) - xandermartin98
In the finale, the sheriff says to the deputy, "Our love is a case".
