Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })In the West, gay men rarely appear outside of works aimed at gay men (though this is changing with many series beginning to represent regular LGBTQA characters). However, one of the cultural quirks of Japan (though it is slowly bleeding over to the rest of the world) is the use of young gay men as Fanservice for girls or young women.
Works that focus on these relationships form a genre currently known by the English term as Boys' Love, also called Yaoi. Yaoi is a subgenre of Shoujo and Josei Manga.
But even outside of actual BL series, hints of male-male romance are often thrown in to help the series fanon appeal to other demographic groups, though its main target audience is still overwhelmingly female. If there is a Yaoi Fangirl among the cast, it is not unlikely for her to try and invoke this trope.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Depending on the series in question, this can be limited to some Homoerotic Subtext... or not. However, many BL pairings in certain Fanon circles are forced regardless of character interaction, even without gay subtext in the original work, due to the trope Guy-on-Guy Is Hot, which serves to feed the desires of its majority straight female fanbase (akin to straight men and Seinen Yuri). This usually results in crack pairing shippings, something Yaoi, Slash, and Shounen-ai are notorious for— which many may consider Canon Defilement. Some popular targets of Yaoi stereotypes being placed onto Non-Yaoi series are Axel and Roxas from Kingdom Hearts II, Zoro and Sanji from One Piece, or the entire cast of Free!.
Granted, a Yaoi male doesn't need to be a Bishōnen, but there is a massive amount of overlap between the two character types. Yaoi Boys are also regularly portrayed by themes like Tall, Dark, and Handsome, Cast Full of Pretty Boys, Dude Looks Like a Lady, and other highly appearance-based tropes.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Secondary to these themes, Yaoi Boys are always heavily subjected to the Female Gaze, which is parallel to the Male Gaze. And on the physical side, Yaoi Boys usually have little to no facial or body hair, skinny to muscularly lean bodies (though not too buff unlike in Bara Genre), a bishie sparkle, light-skin, and youth which is the typical depiction of men in Shoujo and Josei manga. Some more modern works deviate from this ideal with buffer and older men rather than the standard Bishōnen type.
One should note that Yaoi Guys should not be viewed as representative of LGBTQA men that come in all shapes, ages, weight ranges, ethnicities, and whom often do not conform to the gendered stereotypes typically portrayed in Yaoi works. Yaoi's main target audience is catered to a heterosexual female demographic and their perspectives of the ideal male figure, which follow the above Yaoi stereotypes.
See also: Yaoi (as the main link related to this page), Hentai, Yuri, Slash, and Bara Genre to see related tropes.
Spear Counterpart to Token Yuri Girls.
Note: couples from acknowledged/canon BL series go on the Boys' Love Genre page, please.

Fire Emblem
Raven and Lucius from Fire Emblem 7, with Heath and Legault as the second-most popular pairing. And it's not too much of a stretch to assume Matthew's got something for Guy.
It's more famous for the implied twincest between Ephraim and Eirika, but Innes and Ephraim could practically define UST with their constant bickering in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. Forde and Kyle are a toned-down version. Gerik and Saleh have a surprising amount of evidence in their favor: Shared history that they haven't really gotten over, the Sensitive Guy and Manly Man dynamic, and Gerik even takes Saleh out for dinner. In fact, pick any male character from Fire Emblem—odds are that they've got another guy they can support with for extremely subtext-heavy support conversations.
Soren and Ike from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn. Soren is a Defrosting Ice King who only shows his true feelings to Ike, pledges his Undying Loyalty to him, and is one of Ike's paired endings. Probably the most (in)famous moment for the pair is a conversation that's very difficult to unlock where right before the final battle, Ike has been cured of his Laser-Guided Amnesia and can recall their Forgotten First Meeting. It ends with Soren crying in Ike's arms and inspiring loads of Hurt/Comfort Fic.
Fire Emblem Awakening only has heterosexual endings, but some of the guys have enough subtext between them to come across as these. Owain/Inigo is heavy in the Future Past maps, while Vaike is...quite obsessed with Chrom.
A male Avatar in Fire Emblem Fates can be this with the outlaw Niles if they reach S support. Niles and Leo can also come off like this, with Niles's Undying Loyalty to Leo and Leo showing a soft side towards him.

In Doki Doki School Hours, High School junior Kudou Yuuichi has had a crush on classmate Suetake Kenta since at least elementary school. He's an interesting example inasmuch as being a completely standard looking male student, unlike the show's (straight) part-time Wholesome Crossdresser.

To elaborate, in the world of Simoun, everyone is born female. The people of Simoun choose their gender when they reach adulthood. The men above were orginally together when they were female and remained together after they both decided to become male.

Kaworu Nagisa and Shinji Ikari's brief but powerful friendship at the end of Neon Genesis Evangelion is rife with common overtones of this sort. While not being specifically elaborated on, it has been milked in non-canonical (and humorous) material. Kaworu's (failed) attempts to get some attention from Shinji are actually canon in the spin-off series Shinji Ikari Raising Project.
The creators have made it pretty clear that Kaworu was written to be Shinji's main love interest, even if their relationship was not given much screentime: earlier drafts for episode 24 had Shinji -almost- confessing his feelings for Kaworu (while skinny dipping), and a second draft even had a kiss scene between the two of them.
And in the Shinji Ikari Raising Project game (which has dating-sim elements), Kaworu's route is the main one, while the girls' routes are actually bonus.
This was only exasperated in the merch for the Rebuild era. Since a lot of it emphasizes Rei, Asuka, and Mari over Shinji, he and Kaworu had to be packaged together after the third film to get anything sold (their first figures were connected, and their appearance on the official art book was on the back cover, away from everyone else).

Touya and Yukito in Cardcaptor Sakura, arguably the Trope Codifier couple for this, due to how straight and unsubtle was the romance between them played. The fact that they become the Beta Couple by the end of the manga is no surprise and even Nelvana and The Ocean Group's attempt at making it subtler in the Cardcaptors dub was only capable of diminishing this to a still very much present and undeniable Homoerotic Subtext.

Head and Shingo from Star Driver are all but stated to have been dating in the past (before Shingo fell into a fifteen year long coma). Head's a Depraved Bisexual who uses his ability to easily score with everyone to manipulate everyone into doing what he wants them to and thus probably not really romantically interested in him, but Shingo's crush seems very obvious and sincere. Aditionally, the latter has the typical look of an uke character.

Axis Powers Hetalia has Germany proposing to Italy during the Buon San Valentino 2009 strip, red roses and tomato ring included. What comes of it is still unclear, but it's not really subtext at this point.
While Germany and Italy are "the" example of this trope, just about every male character gets this at some point.

Peacemaker Kurogane: After being raped in the manga, Suzu becomes gay, crazy, and obsesses over Tetsunosuke in this manner. And then there's this manga cover◊. Suzu's relationship with Tetsunosuke was always rather Homoerotic Subtext-ridden in the first place, although before it tended to be the more innocent sublimated kind... before it went into full on Stalker with a Crush. Bets are up in the air as to whether if Tetsunosuke had actually slept with Suzu after he was raped they would have been able to save a lot of pain.

Played up for laughs, but taken very seriously by Wolfram, who has made passionate declarations of love to Yuuri.

The original Sailor Moon anime had a villainous example in the form of Zoisite and Kunzite. DiC Entertainment's dub censored this by making Zoisite a woman.

Nico di Angelo and Will Solace in The Trials of Apollo. Teenage demigod boys, sons of Hades and Apollo respectively. Nico is dark-haired, very broody, extremely powerful and a deadly warrior. Will is blonde, upbeat and a healer. Even Apollo himself thinks that they are cute together.

Dillon and Jerzy end up playing the role in Sticky Dilly Buns, if only for latent-Yaoi Fangirl-in-denial Ruby.

Though nearly every combination of the main five pilots of the Mobile Suit Gundam spin-off Mobile Suit Gundam Wing has been shipped as standard fan procedure, a case for Trowa Barton and Quatre Raberba Winner can actually be argued from canon. Given the director's mentioned that Gundam Wing's "pretty boys" pilots were designed specifically to try to tap into the female fan demographic, this may be less surprising than it seems.

Fire Emblem Awakening only has heterosexual endings, but some of the guys have enough subtext between them to come across as these. Owain/Inigo is heavy in the Future Past maps, while Vaike is...quite obsessed with Chrom.

Genshiken has Yaoi Fangirl Chika Ogiue, who in both manga and anime fantasizes about her love interest as a yaoi guy with another member of the club. In fact, the anime episode expands this out into a series of fantasies involving all the male members of the Genshiken as very bishonen yaoi guys, with a tragic romantic plot surrounding Sasahara and Madarame. Don't forget the Soba Incident, either.

The Mad Scientist Wars has its fair share of pairings, but so far the most involved (read: Cannot Spit It Out) relationship is between Andrew Tinker and David Toboz. As of this example, they're official, but Andrew still is smart enough to worry about It's Not You, It's My Enemies. Interestingly, Andrew's son may be heading towards such a relationship. Commander Xerox and Jess may or may not count. Jess is a shapeshifter who was born female, but when they first met she was shifted as a boy. Xerox, being bi, doesn't seem to care much either way.
