Top Ten Movies, TV Series and Video Games that Contain Homosexual or Bisexual Characters but Don't Make a Big Deal of It


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Rent

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

22 Yuri on Ice Yuri on Ice Yuri!!! on Ice is a sports anime television series about figure skating. The anime was produced by MAPPA, directed by Sayo Yamamoto and written by MitsurĊ Kubo.

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

23 The Boondock Saints

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

24 Copycat

The good friend of Sigourney Weaver's character is gay as in one scene he appears with his boyfriend. - Martin_Canine

25 Bound

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

26 Paul

Paul is bisexual, which is only revealed when he says in one sentence that everyone of his species is bisexual. - Martin_Canine

27 South Park South Park South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. The show is about four boys, who are Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick, and their adventures in South Park, Colorado.

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.

28 Hyperdimension Neptunia
29 Degrassi Degrassi Degrassi: The Next Generation (later renamed Degrassi for seasons ten through fourteen) is a Canadian teen drama television series set in the Degrassi universe, which was created by Linda Schuyler and Kit Hood in 1979. It is the fourth series in the Degrassi franchise, following The Kids of Degrassi more.

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

30 Kirakira PreCure a la Mode
31 The Haunting (1999)

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

32 Fire Emblem

A few characters here are seen as bisexual but none of them marry a character of the same gender.

33 Um Jammer Lammy

I want to SCISSOR her

(even though I'm a guy) - xandermartin98

34 Revolutionary Girl Utena Revolutionary Girl Utena
35 Overwatch

The main character, Tracer, is a lesbian - Teravolt1422

36 Tales of Zestiria

SorMilk, enough said. - PerfectImpulseX

37 Fire Emblem Fates

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.

38 Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

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.
