Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Someone who has better things to do than romance. Unlike the clueless Chaste Hero, who just doesn't get romance, the Celibate Hero consciously and actively shuns it. They turn away every potential Girl of the Week and shut out the pleas of their official love interest.
While the term "celibacy" refers specifically to sexual activity, the history of celibacy connects the desire to romance someone with the desire to have sex with them, traditionally taking the form of marriage and kids. Ironically, the act of being celibate results in Celibate Heroes running into more opportunities for romantic encounters than if they were actively seeking them out (particularly from The Vamp). This is not to say that the Celibate Hero is unable to be affected by the force of The Dulcinea Effect, only that they either are acting on a higher ideal (chivalry) or resist its power later on.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })There are a variety of potential motives for this behavior: belief that it's a distraction, a weakness, something they would like but don't have time for, etc. Sometimes the Celibate Hero is actually asexual and/or aromantic and would prefer to avoid all instances of sex and/or romance. Expect more than one reason to come into play, usually reinforcing one another; rarely do any of these show up alone. See the Analysis page for details.
Often a type of Heroic Vow; many religious or military orders of the type favored by heroes may require a Vow of Celibacy.
Please do not conclude a character is a Celibate Hero just because they lack any romantic arc. Without evidence to suggest a character would shun a sexual/romantic encounter, it's impossible to tell if they have chosen a celibate lifestyle.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Compare Asexuality, Old-Fashioned Rowboat Date, Courtly Love, Did Not Get the Girl, No Hugging, No Kissing, Knight Errant, and Celibate Eccentric Genius (if the Celibate Hero is also a Science Hero). Compare and contrast Confirmed Bachelor, who's specifically opposed to marriage, which could be due to this trope or the opposite.
The Japanese definition for not just this but men in general is called a Herbivore man.
Contrast Loved I Not Honor More, Must Not Die a Virgin, Nature Abhors a Virgin, Virginity Makes You Stupid, Eunuchs Are Evil, Straight Edge Evil, Villainous Aromantic Asexual, Unholy Matrimony, The Power of Love, and Good People Have Good Sex.

In the BBC TV series Sherlock, Sherlock Holmes expressly states in the very first episode that he considers himself married to his work and that girlfriends and boyfriends are "not really his area." Creator Steven Moffat maintains, however, that Sherlock is not asexual - he is heterosexual but "monk-like in his devotion to celibacy" - and that this devotion may not hold out in the future.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess: The character of the Hero's Shade is heavily implied to have been a previous Link, most likely the one from Ocarina of Time, and even tells the titular Link of that game that the techniques he is teaching him are not to leave their bloodline confirming that they are of the same family line. So it seems that at least one Link got busy at one point. The Hero's Shade = OoT!Link theory has been confirmed by Word of God, adding further credence to the above.

The eponymous Goblin Slayer is too obsessed with his mission to wipe out goblins to think about dating. He later admits he turns down his lovely companions' advances because he is too emotionally damaged for intimacy. He is aware of concepts like marriage and workplace dating and was quick to figure out that Female Knight was carrying a torch for Heavy Warrior.

Zig-zagged with Black Team. Pre-augmentation, two members of Black Team were into each other, going so far as to make out in the showers (they were clothed, but it was pretty intense and it's possible they might have gone farther). As luck would have it, another member of their team happened to be an exception as well, apparent from his ratting them out in jealousy. They seem to have become fully celibate after getting their augmentations, but some tensions still remain.

The protagonist in The Wicker Man (1973) is a virgin due to his strong Christian faith. He's even able to resist the barkeep's daughter stripping naked and doing a magic wall-slapping seduction dance in the next room.
Ironically, that's one of the factors that made Lord Summerisle pick him as a prime candidate for sacrifice!

Averted to various degrees in later adaptations of The Green Hornet; in the TV series, Britt Reid was cast more as a rich playboy/publisher, and given the occasional Love Interest while Kato remained a celibate sidekick. This was probably an artifact of the series format; as a half-hour series, it would be difficult to shoehorn a romantic subplot into a show which could barely fit the action/adventure main plot within its runtime. Totally averted in the NOW Comics adaptation of The Green Hornet, which pretty well paired off almost all of the various Green Hornets and Katos with more-or-less permanent Love Interests.

Japanese fighting games are riddled with this archetype, exemplified by Ryu ("The Fight Is All") of Street Fighter. SNK follows with Terry Bogard who's implied to be attracted to Blue Mary but keeps his distance, despite Mary's implied attempts to get closer (though she herself seems unsure because of her work). Inverted by Kim Kaphwan, who's married with two sons, and there are a number of others. Although Andy Bogard tries to project this in an effort to train and surpass his stronger brother, much to Mai's dismay.
How much is projected, and how much is real can be different things! You know... if he's so scared, he may have something to explain!
Averted by their original answer to Ryu, Ryo Sakazaki, who's attracted to resident Bifauxnen King who returns the feelings. However, both are shy, unsure, and unwilling to even talk about any of it to anyone.
Downplayed in Samurai Shodown, though. Haohmaru has a girlfriend, yes, his priority is fighting and Oshizu knows that very well; Nakoruru has Galford as her Dogged Nice Guy, but her own priority is being a Nature Hero; Charlotte also adheres to the trope after she finds out her affections for Haohmaru won't be returned... OTOH, Hattori Hanzou is married to a fellow Ninja named Kaede (and later was widowed) and Sieger got to tie the knot with his lady in liege, Princess Elizabeth.

Also from Lackey Tarma in the Vows and Honor books is a Swordsworn, sworn to serve her people's Goddess as a warrior. In this case, rather than force her servants to torture themselves, the Goddess simply removes their ability to feel sexual desire entirely. This is particularly good for Tarma, who became Swordsworn in the aftermath of being gang raped by the people who killed her clan.

Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape are both celibate for reasons not made clear until Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Word of God has it that after his crush on Gellert Grindelwald caused Dumbledore to lose his moral compass and buy into Grindelwald's beliefs about the subjugation of Muggles, which led indirectly to the death of his sister, he deliberately gave up on romance and focused upon his studies for the rest his life. Snape is more of a Celibate Nominal Hero, though, who apparently never has sex due to his unrequited love for Lily.

In Marvel Star Wars, most of the time Luke Skywalker is one of these. Pre-ROTJ comics have him interested in Leia and shy about going through with a Relationship Upgrade, but also unwilling to look at someone else because of her. Until very late in the series, he actively runs away from Zeltrons, an entire species who think he's the most gorgeous man alive, and he puts up with the attentions of one who becomes an ally only reluctantly. He seems shy and massively taken aback when people express interest in him.
Averted in the novels where he marries Mara Jade.

Despite spending time as a child prostitute on the streets of New York City, X-23 is this throughout most of her history. She develops a mutual attraction with Hellion, but due to her incredibly traumatic childhood, Laura struggles with personal relationships, which leads to her keeping him at a distance. Their one kiss was unwelcome on Laura's end, and she ultimately breaks things off with him for good by the end of her solo series and didn't enter into another relationship until meeting an alternate reality version of Warren Worthington.

Tokyo Ghoul:
Ken Kaneki evolves into this over the course of the series, tending to keep his precious people at arm's length to protect them. When he departs to carry out his six-month Roaring Rampage of Revenge, he denies Touka's request to go with him and actively shuns her for the next several months to keep her safe. Averted as of :re, in which he and Touka finally becomes an Official Couple.
Koutarou Amon is known to be incredibly popular with the ladies. Even so, he remains fairly oblivious to the attentions of various Office Ladies and coworkers.....or so it seems. He's implied to still not be over the death of his Academy classmate, Harima, and is later called out on this by his partner, Akira. When she attempts to kiss him, he rejects her advances by covering her mouth with his hand while wearing a panicked expression. She sadly notes this is just like him.
Further explored in the sequel, :Re. Matsuri Washuu notes that about half of all Investigators remain celibate, choosing to not settle down because of the dangers involved in their work. Division Chiefs Itsuki Marude and Kiyoko Aura are prominent examples, both described as "fiercely single" and career-focused.

Ranma Saotome of Ranma ½. While most members of his Unwanted Harem practically throw themselves at him, he doesn't reciprocate, unless he needs to manipulate them or he feels unattractive. Not even Akane Tendo is shown affection most of the time. This could be due to his fear of commitment, his discomfort over physical displays of affection, his "love is a distraction" attitude, or all of the above. Take your pick.

Mafuyu in Blend-S. In the manga, one of her past relationships ended abruptly because her boyfriend was arrested out of being Mistaken for Paedophile. This somehow caused her to think she should never have any romance. In the anime, she simply thinks she has no time for dating, especially when she would rather watch anime.

Monster:
Dr. Kenzo Tenma, after he saves the life of a boy over the city mayor — in defiance of the hospital director's orders. It's a mixture of Love Is A Distraction and I'm A Danger Magnet, as his life takes a very different turn after that fateful decision.
Nina Foertner/Anna Liebert is the same way and for the same reasons. She's far too busy hunting down her psychopathic brother to give a damn about romance. That said, she and Tenma do have one or two Ship Tease moments that may avert this.

Played with in Slayers in regards to Zelgadis Graywords; in the anime, due to some Flanderization, he possibly falls under the "love is a distraction" excuse (as ship teasing with Princess Amelia demonstrates, he feels awkward around her at times). In the original novels, however, it's a completely different matter, as Zel mentions at one point that if he ever were to become intimate with a woman, he would hurt her severely because of his rock skin (which also implies that he may not be a virgin). He opposes raping Lina Inverse in the first novel because of this, as opposed to a more awkward reaction that his anime counterpart would probably have. Word of God mentions his intimacy issues in an interview.

Angel: Angel, while definitely not one of those for most of his existence, became one after being cursed with a soul, initially because he was a complete loner. Later it turned out that a "moment of pure happiness" would break the curse, unleashing Angelus, so he had a good reason to avoid sex. Subverted in the second season, when it turns out that this doesn't just mean sex, he actually does have to be happy as well, and abandoned in the fifth when he realized this doesn't mean he can't have what a colleague describes as "acceptable happiness".

Sonic the Hedgehog is completely uninterested in the advances of Amy Rose, or the flirtations of Rouge the Bat. He has shown a softer side around Blaze the Cat, though that's more because he's trying to get her to open up to friendship rather than romance. Even his interactions with the fandom's worst nightmare, Princess Elise, don't go any further than starboarding. This is mandated by Sega: one of the series' rules is that Sonic can't date, with the Archie comics only getting away with it for so long due to Grandfather Clause.

In Mai-Otome, Otomes are required to abstain from heterosexual romance, as semen will render their bodies unable to use the nanomachines. Arika in particular starts out as ignorant of how love works, but while she develops feelings for Sergay over time, in the end, she fully commits to being an Otome. Most Otome do not fit this, however; they're either lesbian, turn to homosexual relationships to satisfy their needs, or eventually give up their power for a heterosexual romance.

The titular character of Vampire Hunter D, particularly pronounced in the old 1985 OAV. In the novel, it was based on he and the Girl of the Week actually get to first base but are interrupted, and at the end of the book he very pointedly moves on before things go any farther. In subsequent novels, girls throw themselves at him right and left, but he ignores them. This is presumably due to a combination of his need for blood as a dhampir (half vampire) and "Love is A Distraction".

Subverted in the 1987 movie version of Dragnet. Although Joe Friday turns down Sylvia Wiss, who practically throws herself at him, and lectures his police partner about how it was the right thing to do, he does eventually end up with The Virgin Connie Swail.
What ultimately attracts Joe to her is that she's every bit as chaste and wholesome as he is.

Doc Savage is determinedly uninterested in romance. It is remarked in the first book that "He had long ago made up his mind that women were to play no part in his career" and spends every interaction with Monaja (the most beautiful woman he ever met) trying to get her to lose interest. He's smart enough to foist interaction with women on his companions for the most part but seems profoundly uncomfortable when this is not possible.

Allen Walker from D.Gray-Man: He is kissed (on the lips, even!) and hugged by Road Kamelot, who makes it very clear she has a crush on him, but he seems to only regard it as a nuisance, choosing to ignore it (the fact that Road stabbed him in the eye the last time he saw her might have something to do with it). He also chooses to ignore Rohfa's feelings for him, and on numerous occasions, even shows skepticism and signs of being unnerved by it. And in a "character interview" omake, his status as being a Celibate Hero is confirmed by Word of God, as he vehemently denies having a girlfriend or liking anyone, and that he's too focused and busy with his work to do anything like that.
Considering his past it's not hard to find out why he is chaste.

The girl he shares a bed with even comes out and asks him why he's never tried anything with her, and others have teased him about his lacking sex life. Most put it down to his dead little sister.

Sasuke Uchiha of Naruto is a total Chick Magnet, but shows no interest whatsoever in romance. He most likely falls under "Love is a Distraction" and "Genre Savvy". He might also be a Chaste Hero, as he never addresses the issue (not even after Sakura's Anguished Declaration of Love). A logical explanation could be that he became obsessed with revenge before he was old enough to care about such things, and also fears that Itachi or his own "inner darkness" might destroy anyone he's close to. What makes this particularly odd is that his other stated goal is to rebuild his clan. However in the epilogue, he and Sakura are together and have a daughter Sarada.

Drizzt in Bob Salvatore's Forgotten Realms novel series followed this trope for some time. He wasn't interested in casual sex. His first contact with sex was witnessing a graduation ritual for female priests, that involves the summoning of a 5-meter-tall demon. His first and so far only girlfriend was once involved with his presumed-dead best friend; and things got complicated when he was rescued from hell. Eventually, Drizzt allowed himself to love and started getting some regularly. Then she died.

Ged, the protagonist for most of the Earthsea series, is celibate because he is a mage. This accounts for a complete lack of romance in the first three books, even when a pairing up, first with his friend's sister and then with Tenar, looked to be inevitable. All the mages in Earthsea are celibate by rule, in theory because they will lose their power unless they are chaste, though the truth of this belief is not exactly confirmed. It's implied in Tehanu (by a village witch, who may not be the most reliable source) that wizards use some sort of spell to render themselves asexual, or possibly just make it easier to be completely celibate. She doesn't go into details. Later on, Ged mentions he just didn't think of it or feel any urge until he lost his powers.

Paranoia doesn't have heroes, but does have universal celibacy due to hormone suppressants in the food supply. Some citizens do get off the suppressants, mostly either (a) High Programmers or (b) Troubleshooters stuck Outdoors during a mission and forced to eat natural food long enough for them to wear off. Some of these citizens end up going back on them voluntarily so they can concentrate on not getting killed. It's that kind of game.

Dragon Ball:
Tien Shinhan is a notable example, as he turned down Launch due to being committed to his life of training and martial arts.
The men of the Saiyan race took this approach: they only get into romance and courtship simply to have offspring, and even then it's notable that Bardock (in the new backstory) actually cares for his son and wife at all.
Piccolo also qualifies, due to being part of a One-Gender Race. Despite his paternal relationship with Gohan, he tends to express confusion towards open displays of affection that sometimes occur between couples such as Krillin and Android 18. Being the reincarnation of the embodiment of evil probably contributes to this outlook.

Harry Potter:
Word of God maintains that Charlie Weasley, is "more interested in dragons than women".
Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape are both celibate for reasons not made clear until Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Word of God has it that after his crush on Gellert Grindelwald caused Dumbledore to lose his moral compass and buy into Grindelwald's beliefs about the subjugation of Muggles, which led indirectly to the death of his sister, he deliberately gave up on romance and focused upon his studies for the rest his life. Snape is more of a Celibate Nominal Hero, though, who apparently never has sex due to his unrequited love for Lily.

The Spy: Israeli spy Eli Cohen's cover identity is a Syrian playboy, but in his real life, he's in a deeply loving marriage, so he does not date. This actually starts causing problems with his cover, as people start to take notice of his odd aversion to women. His Israeli handler ultimately mandates that he get a girlfriend so Syrians don't think he's "funny in that way." This is all something of a Historical Hero Upgrade, as the real Eli Cohen had as many as 17 mistresses while undercover, in spite of being married.

The Dresden Files:
Harry Dresden spends a heck of a lot of the novels not getting any, and being quite bitter about it. Though he's given a few chances, he never takes them because they generally come with a lot of baggage (e.g. she's a lust demon, or his underage apprentice), and he refuses to enter into a relationship which isn't pure and based on love, and he also doesn't want to bring anyone else into his dangerous world if he can help it. The fact that his first girlfriend was brainwashed into trying to kill him, and whom he thought for years he had killed and his second girlfriend got turned into a vampire because of his involvement with her may have something to do with it. Although even with that track record, succubi making fun of how pathetic your sex life is has got to hurt. It gets to the point where it turns out Harry's latest love interest was psychically mind-controlled into being attracted to him.
Having Carlos, who until that point certainly talked a good game, outed as a virgin by said succubus must have taken some of the sting out of it (or at least given him an ample means of redirecting the mockery). It also makes him another example, though his reason (for that matter, whether it's a conscious choice or just lack of opportunity) isn't explored.

Jue Viole Grace from Tower of God, who obviously knows what sex is, yet has no intention of having it. This tends to piss a few women off.

Taikoubou AKA Fukki from Soul Hunter: He never shows any romantic interest in any of the female characters. It probably didn't help that the only female character that was chasing him was an incredibly hideous monster. And it probably didn't help that he was actually an ancient alien.
It seems like Sennins in general are less prone to romance than humans, as it is said that a child born of two sennins parents is an extremely rare thing, and aside from Dokuson, Sengyoku and Venus, none of them show interest in romance. But Taikoubou's case still stands out as he is notably unimpressed when he first meets Dakki in person, while other characters, even if they're not affected by her temptation spell, seem to at least acknowledge that she is a beauty (for example, her appearance is Youzen default choice any time he needs a beautiful female form).

Also from Discworld, Granny Weatherwax. After all, she tamed that unicorn... which really shocked her friend Nanny Ogg and the revelation made Ridcully, her one-time love interest, get rather soppy. Note that Granny's celibacy has nothing to do with magic, as witches aren't subject to the same prohibitions as wizards. Granny comes under the "Love is a distraction" heading, though; it's a distraction from the pursuit of magic, so in a way, her celibacy does have something to do with magic.

David Eddings's character Sir Bevier (from The Elenium and The Tamuli novels) is aware that his good looks make him irresistible to women. Because he's the one most likely to abandon the steel for the cloth, he elects not to do anything about it.

Marlene of Jet Dream, apparently indifferent to sex of any sort, thinks of her sex change as a minor inconvenience that occasionally gets in the way of Doing Science. The occasional urge can be dealt with easily enough by using her Jet Dream Vibrostick. This attitude doesn't last forever, though.

While Hayate the Combat Butler Hayate falls more on the Chaste Hero side of the line, when he is approached by Ayumu about her crush, or rather, later when approached by the student trio, he thinks he's unworthy of her love because of Athena's teaching him that he had to be financially able to support a girlfriend.

Triptych Continuum: Zigzagged with Applejack, part of the world-saving Bearers. She is looking for a lover, but she has very specific tastes — must be male, an earth pony, a hard worker, not too many years difference in age to her, capable of going with comparatively little sleep, strong and durable — and this combined with her aggressive efforts in searching for Mr. Right and her usual tendency to look in winter and then "try them out" by having them work alongside her in the spring (on the Acres, for multiple shifts, at least twelve hours at a stretch) means she's had absolutely no luck in finding somepony just yet, or at least in finding somepony who won't gallop away from her on every subsequent meeting. The locals she's tried dating have formed the opinion that what she's looking for isn't so much a coltfriend or even a husband as it is a source of free live-in farm-labor added to complimentary stud service; this opinion is described as "unfair, and unkind, but not entirely inaccurate." Applejack isn't exactly looking to just find a decently healthy earth pony stallion to stud her and then raise the foals on her own — but romance would pretty much have to fall on her head if it was going to get her attention, and with Apple Bloom seemingly on track for a non-farming mark and Big Mac impossible to herd into dating, her current top priority is to make sure the farm has a next generation.

However, in The Light Fantastic the narration does mention that Rincewind had had some orgasms in his life, occasionally even with a partner. The comparison comes up because his first success at casting a spell was much more intense and enjoyable.

A parody of this character type can be seen in the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail with the hero "Galahad the Pure", who finds himself visiting a castle filled with nubile, eager young virgins whose charms he (unsuccessfully) tries to resist, but much to his dismay he is 'rescued' by Lancelot. Many of the Arthurian Legend stories this movie is based on feature similar scenarios with chaste, chivalrous heroes having to face temptation from virginal and Vampish seductresses.
Again spoofed in "Martyrdom of St. Victor" from Monty Python's Contractual Obligation Album: Victor is all too willing to succumb to the temptations of the maidens, but the Lord smites them anyway. Victor calls the Lord a rotten bastard. (But the Lord does send an angel "to comfort Victor for the weekend.")

Barnaby from Tiger & Bunny. A natural when it comes to playing The Charmer, he has no problem with acting cool for the sake of the fangirls in order to stay true to his position as HeroTV's no.1 Mr. Fanservice; but in private he has displayed zero interest in romance. He's said to have had a huge fan club back when he was at school, and apparently ignored all of them. Despite working alongside a cute tomboy (Pao-Lin), an aloof bishoujo (Karina), and a hot career woman (Agnes), he has yet to spare any of them more than a passing glance. Though this might be due to the obsession with revenge which has caused him to reject personal relationships completely, it's never confirmed as such in canon.
Doesn't stop him from being a Handsome Lech (though that may be Obfuscating Stupidity).

Homestuck: The main character, John Egbert, has decided to remain one as long as the SBURB session continues. (Perhaps not so surprising since the last time we saw him he was all of 14.) After he and Jade talk over their respective potential romantic interests (several of them each), John basically throws his hands up in the air.
Kankri has also decided to abstain from sex or romance to better focus on his social justice goals...though he seems to have a crush on Latula. He doesn't seem aware, but everyone else sure is.

In the Kate Daniels novels by Ilona Andrews, Kate remains celibate for much of her adult life. Partly because she thinks friends and lovers will distract her from her mission in life, partly because everyone close to her dies violently (her mother, her father, her mentor, and her friend), partly because sex would expose her secrets, partly because any guy powerful enough to protect himself from the skeletons in her closet probably didn't get that kind of power by being ethical, but mostly just because she's afraid of being hurt or rejected.

In One-Punch Man, despite his trusty Oppai sweater, and saying he isn’t into guys when wrongly interpreting the fact Dr. Genus was interested in his body as something else, Saitama is never shown commenting on women or interested in hooking up with someone, his desire for recognition is never linked to wanting to be noticed by fangirls or anything of sorts (although he got a little annoyed he heard Genos has fangirls of his own); later when Fubuki starts trying to pester him to join her group, Saitama is completely indifferent to her, as the Murata manga makes a point to have a few onlookers saying Fubuki is a very beautiful woman, and often thinks of her intruding attempts as very annoying.

Ginko from Mushishi is very much this; though whether it's of his own volition or not is somewhat questionable. Due to possessing an unusual physiology that attracts mushi to him, he cannot stay in any one place or with a 'normal' person for a long period of time and is thus forced to wander the country while acting as a mushi exorcist of sorts. His unusual looks and calm, always-in-command personality make him an instant Chick Magnet in-universe — but while he is kinder to most of the female characters than he is to the male ones, he has never displayed any active interest in romance. This might be indicative of supreme self-control or personal preference; despite having its fair share of romantic subplots involving the supporting cast, the story never brings up a serious prospective Love Interest for Ginko.

Gai Shishioh/Cyborg Guy from GaoGaiGar arguably qualifies. On the one hand, he has a girlfriend, on the other, he's just a head attached to a walking weapon, so it's not like they could do much.

Solomon Kane is a devout Puritan and remains celibate because of his religious convictions.
Which is not accurate, since Puritans believed God wanted everyone to have (marital) sex.
Solomon Kane knew the "kisses" of a "deathless queen in a city old as Death," and compares her with Lilith (this refers to the attempted seduction by Nakari, a vampiric — or at least very bloodthirsty — queen of a lost African city). The same poem (Solomon Kane's Homecoming) implies that he had an old lover at home whom he was hoping to return to.

The Reverend Theo of Schlock Mercenary is a literal version, since he took a vow of chastity. He eventually gets married, averted the trope but keeping true to his vow.
Captain Tagon has been shown to be firmly in the "bad relationship experience in the past". That is to say, the last girlfriend he brought home turned out to be an assassin, rigged with flesh-eating nanobots. The nanobots' first victim was his mother...and then it got worse until his father had to step in and Kill It with Fire.

Yuno in Black Clover, despite being a massive Chick Magnet, has no interest in women or dating whatsoever. He either ignores it or looks uncomfortable when women flirt with him, averts his eyes at revealing sights that give his male companions nosebleeds, and flat-out refuses to peep on the girls in the bath. This is because he has such a powerful crush on Sister Lily from his home village that he refuses to consider other romantic prospects.

Adell from Disgaea 2 spends most of the game loudly proclaiming that he can't stand women. This turns out to be due to a traumatic run-in with a succubus years before.
Laharl from Disgaea: Hour of Darkness is already 1313 years old, but can't stand sexy women, and doesn't appear to be attracted to non-sexy women either. This might also have something to do with the fact that he is Allergic to Love. He is a perfect example of the "Love is Beneath Me" type. We should point out that, centuries-old or no, Laharl has yet to complete puberty and is still considered Just a Kid by demon standards — he acts confused/horrified when an older character tries to give him The Talk. In the novels, he's an Unwanted Harem, attracting both young girls (such as Etna, Flonne, her younger sister Ozonne, Gordon's 13-year-old daughter Jane,) and Sakura, an adult woman.

Jojos Bizarre Adventure:
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency: Robert E.O. Speedwagon from Phantom Blood is stated to be one when he died at the age of 89, single and unmarried. Along with that, his actions and friendship with Jonathan Joestar allowed him to hit the jackpot and fund a powerful organization whose resources help future generations of Joestars battle villainy while advancing scientific and medicinal progress, even in the Steel Ball Run / Jojolion Alternate Universe.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable: Josuke Higashikata does not flirt relentlessly and is not perverted like Joseph, but when the girls near him express interest in him, he is flattered and was shown in the first episode to get along quite well with his female classmates and admirers. While he does express interest in women, it is not his main priority. Josuke is also on par with Johnathan Joestar as one of the most generous and kind-hearted members of the Joestar family tree, especially since his Stand, Crazy Diamond, heals life and restores objects. That being said, if you insult his hair or hurt an innocent, you'll learn that Good Is Not Soft the hard way, thanks to Crazy Diamond's strength rivaling Jotaro Kujo's Star Platinum.

Unseen Academicals does admit that celibacy for wizards is less stringent in Genua, where Bengo Macarona was involved in at least one divorce petition. He wasn't married, and it was the wife who filed the complaint against his philandering, so in this case there wasn't any risk of sourcery.

Natasha Romanov, aka Black Widow, and Bruce Banner, aka The Hulk, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and neither by choice. Natasha was sterilized upon "graduation" from her assassin training, and Bruce can't become excited without turning into "the other guy". Their mutual need for celibacy draws them together and they become a Chastity Couple.

In Shadow of the Conqueror, Daylen avoids any sexual encounters after his youth returns, despite ample opportunities, largely because of the memories that it brings up for him. He comments at one point that the memory of his past self is like a bulwark against any misbehavior.

Female examples: Both Mai and Natsuki from the Mai Hime anime fall under the "Love is a Distraction" header (Mai because she's got a part-time job and has to take care of her younger brother Takumi, and Natsuki because she's consumed with thoughts of revenge against The Organization that indirectly killed her mother), so they spend much of their time ignoring or otherwise actively avoiding their love interests. After the audience finds out what happens to the first couple who openly declares their love, you can't really blame 'em.
Mai stubbornly denying her feelings leads to some vicious enmity and painful loss for her later on. She gets the guy in the end, while Word of God says that Natsuki and Shizuru also get together eventually.

It's not hard for the heroes of Fractured, a Mass Effect/Star Wars/Borderlands crossover and its sequel Origins to fall into this, even in a downplayed fashion. Virtually everyone is Married to the Job, which is lampshaded by Samantha Shepard during her Heroic BSoD—the last serious relationship she had was before basic training! Relationships (for any of the main cast) are just another thing that has to wait until the war is over.

As much as the Shippers want to deny it, Link from The Legend of Zelda typically just rescues the princess and leaves it at that. In a series with humungous amounts of Ship Tease, one can't help but think it's because the developers couldn't decide on which girl to pair him up with.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time: Despite being 12 years old, Link is Chick Magnet. Let's count them: Kokiri Sage Saria, Farmer Girl Malon, Zora Princess Ruto, probably Princess Zelda, and even Gerudo sage Nabooru makes a comment in that direction! Still, he manages to avoid all of them, even the one who tried to get him engaged with her.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker mostly tried to avoid giving Link such an Unwanted Harem, with Medli instead being slightly attracted to Prince Komali, the two girls on Windfall island either having different problems or already being in love, and Aryll being, well, his sister. Only the creepy fairy-queen is seen flirting with him and she's never seen again after that.
The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks: Link and Zelda broke their years-long No Hugging, No Kissing agenda in but it doesn't go beyond the hugging part. (And Link had a rather uncomfortable look on his face when Zelda hugged him; then again, his hat's tip rose.) Also, the game features absolutely no other female characters that could paired up with Link, except if you are a fan of Granny-Paedophilia.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess: The character of the Hero's Shade is heavily implied to have been a previous Link, most likely the one from Ocarina of Time, and even tells the titular Link of that game that the techniques he is teaching him are not to leave their bloodline confirming that they are of the same family line. So it seems that at least one Link got busy at one point. The Hero's Shade = OoT!Link theory has been confirmed by Word of God, adding further credence to the above.
Subverted in Skyward Sword. At the opening of the game, it is clear Link and Zelda are at least extremely close childhood friends, but no romantic interactions go through between them. There is almost one before a tornado sent by Ghirahim drags Zelda to the surface and Link goes on a quest to save her. By the end of the game, however, Zelda and Link decide to stay on the surface, and the Royal Family in future games has to be built somehow...

The Master Chief in Halo, like all SPARTAN-II members, underwent extensive surgeries and procedures to maximize performance. One side effect of his condition is a decrease in...er...interest. Though this side effect is described as a common and likely result of their hormonal adjustment, it is not universal or absolute when it does occur, leading to a few exceptions:
Zig-zagged with Black Team. Pre-augmentation, two members of Black Team were into each other, going so far as to make out in the showers (they were clothed, but it was pretty intense and it's possible they might have gone farther). As luck would have it, another member of their team happened to be an exception as well, apparent from his ratting them out in jealousy. They seem to have become fully celibate after getting their augmentations, but some tensions still remain.
Another Spartan, Maria-062, is officially retired from combat duty and intends to start a family; it's possible she was one of those too badly injured to maintain active service. Another Spartan, Randall-037, also did something similar and even had a daughter.
According to supplemental materials, Spartan-IIIs Kat and Carter of Halo: Reach's Noble Team were previously in a relationship, which is hinted at in the game itself.
In the Expanded Universe, Fred-104 develops quite a bit of Ship Tease with Detective Veta Lopis, as they both admit privately to themselves the other is quite attractive and they seem to develop a fondness for teasing each other. Saving each other's lives seems to have only strengthened that bond.

Mass Effect:
It's possible to play Shepard this way in all the games, usually of the "love is a distraction" variety.
Samara is a Double Subversion. While her Code does not restrict romance, she merely chooses not to engage in it. It turns out this is because her three daughters all suffer a rare asari condition that basically makes them sexual vampires, and have to live in isolation - except for the one who went on the run and became a serial killer.

Orual, the narrator and main character of Till We Have Faces, rather obliquely mentions near the end of the novel that she never lost her virginity. This is partly because as queen regnant she would have to give up her power to her husband if she ever married, partly because she has a rather negative view of romantic love thanks to one sister's shallowness and the other's being Married to a God, and partly because she's convinced that she's so ugly no man would ever be attracted to her, queen or not.

Lucky Luke, being a lonesome cowboy who keeps moving and rarely stays anywhere more time than it's required to solve a case, has absolutely no interest for women or any relationships, though unlike Tintin, the subject is aborted; in "La Fiancé de Lucky Luke" especially, Luke mentions his opinion about both marriage and love, making it clear he is not only uninterested but almost repulsed (to the point he almost refuses a mission that consists in escorting a large group of women, fearing they might attempt advances on him... and they do). Notably, he has a female Platonic Life Partner in Calamity Jane.

Gintama: Gintoki is far from being a Chaste Hero and is seen acting perverted plenty of times. However, he never shows interest in actually having a relationship with any of the girls around him and only treat them as friends. This is despite having Sacchan literally throwing herself at him on a daily basis, and getting enough Ship Tease with Tsukuyo or Tae to qualify for Unwanted Harem. Even when he meets his crush the weather lady Ketsuno Ana during the onmyoji arc, despite all the jokes made about him wanting to marry her, in the end, he just tells her that he is a fan before leaving.

In The Golden Child, the Old Man assigns Chandler Jarrell (Eddie Murphy) a task of purification in order to fully realize his role as The Chosen One. This task involves remaining celibate, which is tough for Jarrell because he's got the hots for his Sidekick Kee Nang, and made even more complicated by the facts that (a) he's not allowed to tell her about it, and (b) once he stops being such a Jerkass, she starts falling for him.

Batman, in many incarnations, adheres to a combination of most of the above: love as distraction (his work is his life); love as beneath him (he sees himself as something more); the danger magnet issue (amusingly subverted when, in an episode of Justice League Unlimited, he tried to use that as a reason he couldn't date Wonder Woman; she then demonstrates that he'd be in more danger than she); his Secret Identity, although potential love interests have occasionally discovered the secret anyway; and depending on the actual universe, bad relationships in the past (he maintains that one of his few actual lovers, Talia al Ghul, drugged and raped him).
With the Reboot it seems the whole Talia thing was consensual. He still wasn't proud of it, though.

Death Note:
Light Yagami, the Villain Protagonist doesn't seem to desire sex or romance (though he fits both "Love is a Distraction," given his obsession with the Death Note and "Love is Beneath Me," due to blatant narcissism), and treats his Love Interest Misa quite coldly. He is fully aware of such matters, and uses the very idea of sexuality for his own benefit — pretending to read porn, supposedly unaware, in front of many security cameras designed to determine his likelihood of being Kira to ward off suspicion. Basically, Light only has sex if it benefits him. To him, his sex appeal is a tactic — he's quite possibly incapable of feeling 'love' or 'desire' in a romantic sense. Even when Light plays a truly spectacular Memory Gambit and temporarily turns good, his feelings for Misa are still unclear. He is clearly concerned for her safety and treats her much more warmly, but since this change applies to the way he treats everyone, it need not suggest real "love". Of course, even if he wanted to progress their relationship further, being handcuffed to L 24/7 would make it somewhat difficult.
L also deserves mention. Although he reacts more positively to Misa's kiss on the cheek than Light does, he probably views love and even meaningful friendship as something of a distraction. This is complicated further by his awkwardness. Word of God notes that Near and Mello were originally intended to be L's sons — but there's nothing in the plotline or the interviews with the creators that suggest they stuck with the idea. In fact, they decided that it would be unlikely for someone like L to get the "action" necessary to have children (and also that it would have meant that L fathered them at an improbably young age), so they decided to scrap the idea that Mello and Near are his children.
Despite not being "heroes" per se, Shinigami are indispensable to the plot; they are neither permitted nor capable of sexual relationships with one another or with humans, so their celibacy is somewhat mandatory. Woe betide the shinigami that develops feelings for a human, no matter how platonic...

In Season 4 of Noob, Omega Zell reveal that he's deliberately avoiding any friendship or love relationship with women until he becomes the game's top player. However, since he's not that found of them in the first place nor hiding it, he's not exactly spending his time turning down an Unwanted Harem.

Another female: Rei Hino/Mars from the Sailor Moon manga. This actually comes both from her Defrosting Ice Queen background and her past life in the Silver Millennium, where her past self made an oath of chastity to Princess Serenity.
In a way, it could also be said for all of Serenity's guardians, as they all promised total dedication to her, that not even love would separate them. In the manga at least...

Michael in Redeeming Love fits this trope for the first half of the novel: he’s still a virgin at the age of 26, and remains so for several months into his marriage to the heroine (because he feels that the emotional connection formed during sex is crucial, and as a former prostitute she is unable to make that connection). He does eventually break out of this role and they very eventually end up Happily Married, with a healthy helping of Good People Have Good Sex and Babies Ever After.

In Carnivàle, it's strongly implied that Ben is a virgin, and he actively shuns sexual advances. This is related to the fact that he grew up with strict religious values pounded into him by an uncaring mother. When he does have sex with Ruthie he tells her that it was "a sin" and that it won't happen again. He also tends to freak out when others try to touch him. He does seem to change his mind later in the series regarding Sophie. It doesn't work out too well, though.

Kagemori Mamoru of Kage Kara Mamoru!, he believes that "Love Is a Distraction" mainly because the girl that he is assigned to is so dimwitted at times that she would not survive without his constant protection and that going out with a girl would detract from his duty. His parents, on the other hand, would argue that Mamoru also has a special duty to find a girlfriend so he can get married and give them some grandchildren so the family tradition can be carried on.

The Marvel/Dynamite comics creation Red Sonja. (As opposed to Robert E. Howard's original Russian sword-maiden of the same name.) Gang-raped to the point of death, Sonja was gifted with revenge by the god Mitra (or the goddess Scáthach, Depending on the Writer). So long as she "knew no man," Sonja could best almost any man alive in combat. To become her lover - and presumably destroy her gift - a man had to beat her in a fight - a task even Conan the Barbarian found difficult, if not impossible, to do.
The nature of her vows vary to writer from writer; in one version of her backstory detailed in Queen Sonja revealed she had a boyfriend in her youth who did beat her in a fair fight and she didn't lose her fighting prowess as a result. After his death, she resolves not to love anyone just to not be hurt once again, which adds another layer to this trope.

In 1356, we have the Sire Roland de Verrec, who as a boy had a vision of the Virgin Mary, and is determined to remain chaste until he marries. Other men mock him for his virginity, though not to his face — he is an undefeated tournament champion and utterly lethal in battle.

Merida of Brave. It's one of the plot points in the movie. Since she is of royalty, she's forced to marry the head of one of DunBroch's clans to be able to give birth to a descendant in the future, of which Merida is highly protesting against, as she wants to be a free soul not bound to obey old traditions. In the original draft, however, she was supposed to end up with one of the suitors (after getting to know them better when all three help her out on her quest), but it was scrapped because Pixar wanted to focus on the relationship between her and her mother, thus having her ending up single in the final version.

Archie Comics: Jughead Jones actively shuns romance, because he's simply more interested in food than love. He remains good friends with Betty, and he and Veronica can usually tolerate one another. Ironically, there has been more than one female who has persistently hounded him due to some infatuation with his aloof, nonchalant nature towards the fairer sex.

Laharl from Disgaea: Hour of Darkness is already 1313 years old, but can't stand sexy women, and doesn't appear to be attracted to non-sexy women either. This might also have something to do with the fact that he is Allergic to Love. He is a perfect example of the "Love is Beneath Me" type. We should point out that, centuries-old or no, Laharl has yet to complete puberty and is still considered Just a Kid by demon standards — he acts confused/horrified when an older character tries to give him The Talk. In the novels, he's an Unwanted Harem, attracting both young girls (such as Etna, Flonne, her younger sister Ozonne, Gordon's 13-year-old daughter Jane,) and Sakura, an adult woman.

A Song of Ice and Fire:
The ideal of both the Night's Watch and the Kingsguard is this. (Technically the vow only states "father no children" with regard to that, but the implications are clear and Martin himself has said that both are supposed to be celibate.) The practice, on the other hand...
Jon Snow gave a shot at this, refusing to go to the whorehouses when the other boys on the Wall did, refusing advances (all to obey the rules of the Night Watch). Didn't work out so well for him. Samwell Tarly was likewise forcibly thrown into his Love Interest's bed.
Knowing of the faultiness of such a pledge, the slave traders who own The Unsullied castrate the slaves for just this purpose. The slave trader proudly points out that while the Night's Watch and Kingsguard claim celibacy, The Unsullied are the only ones who are truly, well, unsullied.
Tywin would like to be seen this way, as part of his general desire to be viewed as above all base desires. Like Stannis, he was married and has children; but was a widower for almost thirty years and never showed the slightest inclination of ever wanting to remarry or even have a lover. This turned out to be far from true, but he was so discreet about it that his reputation as a Celibate "Hero" withstood a dead prostitute being found in his bed.

One Piece:
More or less everyone except characters like Sanji. Word of God is that 'They're in love with adventure' and notably Luffy can be seen ignoring Hancock's affections to the extent that he feels exactly 0 attraction for her, rendering her ability unable to affect him. Characters will occasionally act perverted, though.
Trafalgar Law is another notable example because of him being one of the few people in the world to have virtually no reaction to Boa Hancock's beauty, and unlike his crew, he also doesn't comment on the abundance of attractive women in Amazon Lily. He also shows nothing but annoyance towards flirting and is described by Monet as downright "unsociable".
Averted with Gol D. Roger, though it's debatable how much of a hero he was. He and his lover, Portgas D. Rouge, are the parents of Portgas D. Ace. Part of the reason that Roger turned himself in at the end of his life was to protect them.

Catholic-Boy-Scout-type Tintin has it easy when it comes to resisting carnal sins. There are almost no women in the cast of his adventures, and the few that appear are hardly what anyone would consider "appealing". (Well, let's be honest here — Hergé didn't draw noticeably attractive men with any great frequency, either.) He may count as a Chaste Hero too since the whole issue of romance is never mentioned in relation to him.

In Perfect Creature, Silus is a member of an all-male monastic order of Christian vampires that is forbidden from forming romantic relationships with women, something which the Big Bad rubs on his face when he feels infatuated with the heroine. There is also the fact they are practically immortal, are incapable of having children or turning women into vampires and forming families of their own, so any relationship is discouraged to spare a heartbreak.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker mostly tried to avoid giving Link such an Unwanted Harem, with Medli instead being slightly attracted to Prince Komali, the two girls on Windfall island either having different problems or already being in love, and Aryll being, well, his sister.

Code Geass: Lelouch Lamperouge, who has many characters, such as Shirley, Kallen, and Milly vying for his affection, along with every girl in his school. Lelouch, however, is a Celibate Hero who doesn't have the time for romance. Instead, he focuses on winning a war for his little sister. The only reason we know he's not a Chaste Hero is because of that one time he asked Kallen to "comfort" him.

The Bible:
God commanded Jeremiah not to marry nor have children due to the fact that things in Jerusalem would be so bad during the days of his ministry that people will mourn over the loss of families and children because of the Babylonian invasion and the famine and poverty that would result from it.
Jesus Christ is universally considered as such in Christianity. Except revisionist conspiracy theory literature and fiction like The Da Vinci Code where he's shipped with disciple Mary Magdalene.
By most Christian standards, he doesn't qualify for Chaste Hero as defined here, since he is said to have been tempted "in all things" yet remained sinless, so that logically includes sexual sin and he wasn't just clueless about it.
The Christian parts of the Bible don't mention if he was or was not married to a woman. But there are repeated metaphors about the Christian Church itself being the "Bride of Christ". Jesus also talks about eunuchs who become so for God's sake (with the disclaimer that it's not for everyone, but for those who can take it). Most interpret this as advocating celibacy. However. some early Christians took it literally and castrated themselves.
When answering the question the Sadducees posed to Him about whose wife a woman would be of the seven brothers that married her and left her childless when the resurrection takes place, Jesus implies that all who will be resurrected will be celibate, for "they will neither marry nor be given in marriage, but will be like the angels in Heaven."
While the Apostle Paul was celibate, many other early disciples-turned-leaders (thus the proto-clergy) were married, like the Apostle Peter whose wife and mother-in-law are mentioned. Discussed in the Book of Corinthians — Paul suggests that while being celibate helps one to focus their life to glorify God, it is completely optional. If one cannot resist the temptation of sex, he recommends the believers to marry each other to get rid of the temptation instead.
In the Book of Revelation, the 144,000 of the twelve tribes of Israel will be celibate virginal men who have not "defiled themselves with women".
For its first few centuries, Christianity universally allowed married priests due to the above, even after a schism that divided it into Eastern and Western halves. But since 1139, Roman Catholic priests have been required to be celibate in imitation of Christ. This continues today for modern Roman Catholic priests (well, at least the majority who are faithful, and who were not originally Anglicans that converted after becoming priests and being married).
Roman Catholic nuns as well (and nuns in general), along with monks. They're considered heroic by believers for giving this up as part of a higher calling.
Eastern Catholic priests (the one in communion with Rome) are a double subversion—they can be married men, as long as marriage is done prior to ordination. In both Eastern and Western (read: Roman) Rites, once you are ordained, you can no longer marry.
Same rules apply to Eastern Orthodox Priests, as well as deacons in all rites. A man under Holy Orders is not permitted to take a wife unless given express permission to do so (which in the case of deacons is usually only given if his first wife dies and leaves him to raise minor children as a single father, and in the case of priests is extremely rare. It is unheard of in the case of bishops).

Despite the fact that with her beauty and reputation she still has the attention of many lords even when she's nearing her fifties, she doesn't attempt to forget Shen and look for a husband until she remembers her duty to birth heirs while she still can. Ironically, the announcement of her engagement returns Shen to her life. When she and Shen fully rekindle their love, they spend a night together (gaining a son from it) and soon become married.

Kyouko from Skip Beat!, of the "bad past experiences" variety. She not only avoids love, she even convinces herself she's incapable of it.

He didn't use to be this trope but by The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV, Rean has embraced this trope as he starts realizing that his female classmates, his students, the princess, and his adopted younger sister have fallen in love with him, some of them even confessing to him before their final bonding event. However, the reason why Rean keeps some distance is because of what happened at the climax of Cold Steel III. Because he is the one who kills the corrupted Nameless One, he is chosen to become a sacrifice for the rivalries to reform the Great One and does indeed die at the end of the normal ending of IV. He's only able to finally move on and romance the woman he chooses at the fireworks scene (sans his students where he'll wait until they have graduated from school) in the Golden Ending of the game.

They are awoken after The End of the World as We Know It, so they are supposedly the last humans who survived... and part of the project they are members of does include the repopulation of the human species. Team Autumn has forbidden any kind of sex that can lead to pregnancy in their team, though this has not stopped Ryusei and Kurumi, she is pregnant during her second appearance, and the rest of the teams simply decide that having sex, and hence risking pregnancy, is not a good idea at the moment... things are still up in the air, with no proper, safe shelter for them to live or raise a child in.

This Feat is a prerequisite for two Prestige Classes (one of which is female-only and involves gaining a unicorn as your companion, naturally).

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable: Josuke Higashikata does not flirt relentlessly and is not perverted like Joseph, but when the girls near him express interest in him, he is flattered and was shown in the first episode to get along quite well with his female classmates and admirers. While he does express interest in women, it is not his main priority. Josuke is also on par with Johnathan Joestar as one of the most generous and kind-hearted members of the Joestar family tree, especially since his Stand, Crazy Diamond, heals life and restores objects. That being said, if you insult his hair or hurt an innocent, you'll learn that Good Is Not Soft the hard way, thanks to Crazy Diamond's strength rivaling Jotaro Kujo's Star Platinum.

Game of Thrones:
The ideal of the Night's Watch and the Kingsguard, but also a frequently broken vow.
Jon Snow gives this a good shot, refusing to bed whores and striving to refuse the advances of women. That is until Ygritte finally talks him into it in "Kissed By Fire".
Samwell Tarly keeps his vow of celibacy despite his attraction to Gilly up until Season 5 when he rescues her and they have Rescue Sex while he is still gravely injured.
Once infamous for whoring, Tyrion seems to lose his sex drive after killing Shae. He finds himself unable to sleep with a prostitute in Volantis, and he makes no attempt to seek a sex partner after that.

Judge Dredd: Sexual relationships (or "extra-judicial liaisons") are illegal for street Judges, a rule imposed by the first Chief Judge. Dredd, who was cloned from the same person, was raised with the idea that he would never have time for a relationship because he'd be too busy fighting crime. The closest he's ever gotten is when Judge DeMarco gave him a "Shut Up" Kiss in frustration and he initially failed to report it.

The Medicine Peddler from Mononoke is an enigmatic, mysterious Chick Magnet, and the only good-looking male character in the series. Many of the ladies he encounters develop a crush on him — specifically Kayo, with whom he gets quite a bit of Ship Tease (though it's more 'tease' and less 'ship'). But then again, the women are human while he almost definitely is not, so it might just be that.

Despite popular suspicion, subverted in Doctor Who:
The Doctor has had at least four wives and multiple children and travelled with his granddaughter when the show started. While it aims to be a family-friendly show and the main character is generally oblivious, he has NOT spent his whole life celibate.
The Doctor came off as this especially during the 1970s and 1980s when due to Executive Meddling and the general attitude that Doctor Who was a children's show, the Doctor was never allowed to overtly romance or even express "that sort" of interest in his often young and female companions (it came to a head when 30-year-old Peter Davison became the Doctor and travelled with two sexy female companions played by actresses only a couple years younger than he). This, combined with interpretations of often-contradictory dialogue, led to the opinion by some (still held by some today) that the Doctor was asexual and uninterested in any sexual matters.
To which degree it happened also varied upon incarnation. The trait was especially pronounced with the Seventh Doctor, something which the Expanded Universe acknowledged by making it a sure-fire sign that Seven was really Not Himself if he suddenly started fancying someone. Upon encountering River Song in a Big Finish Doctor Who story, Seven says that he can clearly sense that she will somehow hold great meaning to him in his future, but the only reasons as to why he can think of is that she is either going to be his "dearest friend" or "darkest enemy"; he simply cannot think of any other possibility. The truth, of course, is that he is going to marry her as the Eleventh Doctor.
The 2005 revival began to avert the trope by establishing that the Doctor is perfectly capable of falling in love with his companions, and even having sexual interests, though this is never addressed explicitly. It's finally averted fully with the arrival of River Song, who becomes the Doctor's wife. Subtle references to their love life crop up, but even then, that romance is almost wholly off-screen. The Doctor has paradoxically more screentime with the more kid-friendly, platonic romance he shares with later companion Clara. The Doctor becoming too obsessed with his companion and too afraid of losing her even becomes a major part of the plot at the end of their tenure together. He eventually proves his maturity by being willing to let go and let the two of them go their different ways, rather than staying in a loving-but-tense friendship that's in danger of becoming dysfunctional (and hurting both of them and others in the process). Before that, the Doctor had a platonic romance and a good friendship with two other female companions, but the outcome of their stories was often criticized as the Doctor whining about losing them, all the while taking them for granted. His less peeved and remorseful farewell to his more recent companion was seen by many as something of an apology for those past mistakes and him growing in emotional confidence as a character.

Kit in The Dreadful is an Anti-Hero example. As a Devikin having to deal with Fantastic Racism that causes many women of her race to resort to prostitution, she's sworn off of sex. She also tries to hold her sister, Poe, to the same standard, much to Poe's frustration.

This seems to be getting glossed over in more recent books: apparently it was okay for Professor Earwig to marry, as long as he retired (see "The Sea And Little Fishes", A Hat Full of Sky and Unseen Academicals), and in Making Money, we're told the students in the Post-Mortem Communication Department view the black robes and skull ring as a "babe magnet". Currently, it seems that wizards are forbidden to marry for the much same reasons as Oxbridge dons were until the 19th century; they're supposed to be Married to the Job.

Cmdr.

Shimoneta: Despite Ayame's fascination with porn and lewd jokes, it's heavily implied that she's still a virgin, given her tendency to panic whenever she's faced with the real thing. In the manga, it's also shown that she only regards Tanukichi as a friend and ally of SOX. Whereas the anime gives them a brief moment of ship tease near the end of episode 11, but the series concludes with them still being friends.

Ivy from the Soul series, amazingly, is strictly celibate despite being Ms. Fanservice incarnate. This is due to her cursed lineage, which she doesn't want to risk passing on to a child.
Also, Warrior Monk Kilik. According to IV, he's well aware of fellow travelling mate Chai Xianghua's romantic feelings for him but doesn't want to reciprocate for two reasons. 1) Xianghua reminds him of his big sister figure Xianglian, who he accidentally killed four years back thanks to the Evil Seed (the swarm of evil influence that washed across the world when Siegfried claimed Soul Edge for himself and became Nightmare) causing him to become berserk and slaughter in his fellow Ling Sheng-Su monks (unbeknownst to them both, Xianghua is actually Xianglian's long-lost little sister). 2) Due to his mission to destroy Soul Edge (which holds the risk of his death), he would rather have her live a life of happiness without him. This comes to a head in either one of two ways in IV. Either Kilik absorbs the energies of Soul Edge and Soul Calibur into his Kali-Yuga and goes off into seclusion alone to properly balance these powers (Kilik's ending) or Xianghua pleads to Kilik to not go as he sacrifices himself to destroy Soul Edge and ultimately goes with him (Xianghua's ending). It's a bit saddening no matter how you look at it. It should be noted that this is a bit of a departure from III, where Kilik either flat-out asks Xianghua to be with him (his ending) or is oblivious to her hints (her ending). Then again, in their endings, they had finally destroyed Soul Edge, which was a non-canon scenario. Additionally, Xianghua's daughter Leixia is confirmed to be a playable character in V (which is set seventeen years after the fourth game). It turns out that Kilik is not the father, much to the surprise/dismay/anger of many. Xianghua was instead married off to Ming general Yan Wujin. However, Kilik—before leaving Xianghua—spent one last night with his lover. And that's how Xiba was born.

The Thief series' protagonist, Garrett the master thief, is implied to be one of these. In his own opinion, romantic relationships would take his focus away from his true love: Heists and pilfered loot. That said, Garrett does show feelings of affection or concern for a few women, but it's ambiguous whether there's anything romantic behind it.

While the Apostle Paul was celibate, many other early disciples-turned-leaders (thus the proto-clergy) were married, like the Apostle Peter whose wife and mother-in-law are mentioned. Discussed in the Book of Corinthians — Paul suggests that while being celibate helps one to focus their life to glorify God, it is completely optional. If one cannot resist the temptation of sex, he recommends the believers to marry each other to get rid of the temptation instead.

Samurai Gun. Ichimatsu is a regular customer of local Hooker with a Heart of Gold Ohana, but his "business" with her is strictly the non-sexual services provided. He's not unaware of her own romantic attraction to him and isn't exactly unattracted to her himself, but he has ...issues with sex, due to the fact that, as a child, he was forced to watch his elder sister be raped and then murdered. He later learns that the one who did the deed was actually a servant of the same council of freedom fighters that he serves as a Samurai Gun; apparently, deliberately traumatising children so as to create recruits for the project was a deliberate tactic of theirs, to both make them "available", give them a way to control them, and to start their Training from Hell.

John Galt in Atlas Shrugged. The book spends so much time on his perfection and how Dagny Taggart is his only perfect woman, it's impossible to imagine him just having sex for the hell of it. This also applies to Dagny's other lovers. She had sex with both Francisco and Hank Reardon. Reardon hated his sexual urges which drove him to his frigid wife and Dagny was Francisco's first. It's difficult to imagine them moving on and settling for someone else.

Arthur cannot sleep with anyone in the main story of Red Dead Redemption II. If a prostitute propositions you, your choices are "reject" where he'll say something nice like "No thanks" or "decline" where he'll say something meaner like "I like women." The most you can do with his actual Love Interest, his recently widowed ex, is hold hands (though they do want to actually be together once he ties up some loose ends and saves some money) and the only time he kisses anyone it's a a man dressed in drag that's trying to cause a distraction. It's likely a combination of still being in love with his aforementioned ex and having a kid from what seems like a one-night stand dying along with his baby mama. He probably doesn't want to make that "mistake" again and ruin two innocent people's lives.

The Obsidian Trilogy, written by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory, features a hero who remains chaste and celibate — virginal and unmarried, respectively — for a year and a day in return for his life being saved by a unicorn. The penalty for breaking his vow, since his life was saved, will be death by goring. While the first woman he meets is his sister, and the next woman he finds himself intrigued by is the queen of the elves and happily married, the third woman he is attracted to is neither attached nor unattractive nor uninterested in him. This case also gets an interesting treatment in that the unicorn apparently becomes fertile (or non-celibate) because of the hero's year of celibacy. The hero and unicorn's parting at the end of the series states that the hero no longer needs to be celibate, but that the unicorn won't have to be either!

Prince Sebastian Vael of Dragon Age II actively avoids sex, due to his vows of chastity upon becoming a brother of the Chantry. Players can enter a romance him, but don't expect him to sex with you. Though it's implied he may eventually break his vows entirely if you are in a rivalry romance with him.

Rorschach in Watchmen is depicted as having a total fear of anything sexual, which is implied to be the result of traumatic childhood experiences.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Mayor is a villainous example. It's probably related to his Mayfly–December Romance.

Rustlers' Rhapsody is a parody of old B-Westerns, so at the start singing cowboy-hero Rex O'Herlihan never does anything more than chastely kiss the girls before riding on to the next town. After a false start or two, he finally "gets better".

The Lone Ranger and The Green Hornet
Averted to various degrees in later adaptations of The Green Hornet; in the TV series, Britt Reid was cast more as a rich playboy/publisher, and given the occasional Love Interest while Kato remained a celibate sidekick. This was probably an artifact of the series format; as a half-hour series, it would be difficult to shoehorn a romantic subplot into a show which could barely fit the action/adventure main plot within its runtime. Totally averted in the NOW Comics adaptation of The Green Hornet, which pretty well paired off almost all of the various Green Hornets and Katos with more-or-less permanent Love Interests.

GURPS gives us the Chastity disadvantage, giving your Celibate Hero functional rules for what that entails.
Humorous footnote: The Eunuch disadvantage was also available (to males) in earlier editions, but its value was dropped from 5 points to a 1-point 'quirk' because too many Min-Maxing players were taking it.

The old Expanded Universe showed that Anakin was far from the only Jedi during the pre-Empire era to violate that rule, including a breakaway faction that openly rejected it. Averted by Luke's New Jedi Order in the post-Return of the Jedi Legends Expanded Universe and by the Jedi of the Old Republic era, where marriage between Jedi was allowed and managed to successfully return back to prominence despite violating the previous order's teachings. However, all of this has been rendered non-canon since the acquisition of Lucasfilm by Disney and their decision to launch a new Expanded Universe.

Train Hartnett of Black Cat has a severe tendency toward this: he gets grossed out by the idea of posing as the pretty Rinslet's husband, whacks Kyoko when she tries to kiss him, and in the anime, he puts a cat in front of his face so Kyoko kisses the kitty instead of him. Even with Saya, it's made clear that he only thought of her as a very close friend. He's also totally uninterested in men, much to Creed's dismay.

Durarara!!'s Shizuo Heiwajima has pushed the possibility of a relationship entirely off the table. He doesn't see it as a weakness or liability — he craves human contact more than anything else, romantic or otherwise — but experience has taught him that he's dangerously prone to hospitalizing people he wants to be close to.

In The Twilight Samurai, Widower samurai Seibei rushes home to take care of his mother and daughters after work rather than join his coworkers for drinking and geisha entertainment. He also refuses his uncle and best friend's offers to arrange a second marriage, though in the latter case he's motivated more by shame of his poverty than genuine disinterest.

Sanzo in Saiyuki displays no sexual interest or preferences, despite both the anime and manga going out of the way to show that he breaks every other vow he had to take as a Buddhist priest. Wordof God says that he does, indeed, maintain his vow of celibacy, not out of consideration for his Buddhist beliefs (he has none, despite his job) but because he dislikes being touched in "that way". In the Burial arc of the manga, it's shown that the first people he ever killed intended to rape him, and it's implied this wasn't an uncommon occurrence in his life, with his physical attractiveness inviting a lot of creepy attention. Sanzo rarely allows anyone to touch him at all, with varying levels of exception for his traveling companions, especially Goku.

Toward the Terra takes this trope to its extreme conclusion. Even the thought of intimate relationships doesn't seem to exist in the same universe as Soldier Blue or the next Soldier (title for the leader of the Mu), Jomy. Interestingly, Tony has a girlfriend... but she obligatorily dies a few episodes before he becomes Jomy's replacement. Odd considering that they need all the psionic power they can get, Authority Equals Asskicking, and power is a function of genetics.

Joshua, an angel from Dora Wilk Series has never seen to be interested in women or men (apart from Dora, but he Can't Have Sex, Ever with her) and is still a virgin. He explains that with angels being absurdly fertile, it's quite possible that after first or second intercourse he'd have a child and have to settle down, which he doesn't want to do.

Sherlock Holmes, the eponymous character from the original novel and short story collections, considers "Love is a Distraction" to be his watchwords — so much so that he can quite easily be read as both aromantic and asexual. This aspect of his character is often removed in adaptations with the Promotion To Love Interest of Irene Adler, whom Holmes showed grudging respect for after her one appearance in canon.

Patrick Jane on The Mentalist has apparently made a Heroic Vow to avenge his wife before indulging in pleasures of the flesh. He turned down two attractive ladies at a bar who made a pass at him, flashing his wedding ring and telling them he was married. Jane sometimes flirts with women, but it usually ends with the outing of a suspect. (He does briefly make an exception for Lorelei Martins, but that turns out to be all part of a larger plot.) He stops being this in Season 7, after Red John's death, when he and Lisbon get together.

Horizon Zero Dawn: Despite Aloy being a Dude Magnet and a Chick Magnet, she never reciprocates any romantic feelings. She mostly ignores their propositions, except for one or two especially obvious ones, which she turns down without player input. It is implied that she might have feelings for one or two people, such as Varl, but by the end of the game Varl views her as the Anointed child of the All-Mother, which makes her very uncomfortable and completely ruins any chance at romance.

Buffyverse:
Angel: Angel, while definitely not one of those for most of his existence, became one after being cursed with a soul, initially because he was a complete loner. Later it turned out that a "moment of pure happiness" would break the curse, unleashing Angelus, so he had a good reason to avoid sex. Subverted in the second season, when it turns out that this doesn't just mean sex, he actually does have to be happy as well, and abandoned in the fifth when he realized this doesn't mean he can't have what a colleague describes as "acceptable happiness".
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Mayor is a villainous example. It's probably related to his Mayfly–December Romance.

Dragonlance
Raistlin Majere, antihero of the books, is a Celibate Hero. Actively manipulating the lovesick, annoying Crysania to his advantage, he resists the temptation to actually do anything with her because A) it's beneath a mage of his stature, B) he can't afford to be distracted from his "Overthrow the Gods for No Good Reason" project, and C) he had sex once before and was crap at it. And, though it's not explicitly stated, suspicions are that, were he to actually try anything as physically vigorous as sex with Crysania, he'd probably just wind up coughing blood all over her and collapsing into a heap, which, whatever way you look at it, isn't very romantic. There is possibly some inconsistency over whether Raistlin actually ever had sex or not. The Legends trilogy very strongly implies that he did, with one of Caramon's ex-girlfriends but The Soulforge, which covers the time period it would have happened equally strongly implies he remained a virgin (there is a girl, again a lover of Caramon and there appears to be budding mutual affection but... well read it yourselves).
There was a short story called "Raistlin's Daughter", which implied he may have had a daughter, in the more or less conventional way and was magically made to forget the experience. Interestingly the entire story is treated as an in-universe rumour and when Raistlin encounters a girl claiming to be his daughter in Dragons of Summer Flame he drolly comments on his bad luck at sleeping with a beautiful woman and not remembering it. For the record, the girl in question is not his daughter, much to the relief of his nephew Palin.

Not to mention that when they are together, his apartment tends to get destroyed.

Mikuru Asahina from Haruhi Suzumiya. It's not just about Haruhi unconsciously using her powers out of jealousy if Mikuru gets close to Kyon, but Mikuru is actually a Time Traveler who is not allowed to have a relationship with someone outside of her own time frame, per obvious work reasons.
In the first book, Haruhi says that while she is a "healthy young woman, after all," she doesn't have time for sex, what with trying to find the people right in front of her.
