Leave it to the Japanese to make Fetish Fuel out of anything.

–LuigiMaster, on Fetish Fuel in Anime and Manga

Anime and Manga are often loaded with Fan Service and Author Appeal. Some are even blatant to the point of Ecchi. Yet if it's outright Hentai, it's porn, and doesn't belong here.

Of course it's not always deliberate. Some of this may be a bit more up front than typical Fetish Fuel, but a lot of that is actually due to Values Dissonance. What's dirty to us may be acceptable to them (and vice versa).


  • Dominion Tank Police: Puma Twins. I'll be in my bunk.
  • The Japanese have quite a thing going on with Cat Girls, of course, but I never got really turned on by one until this book on drawing mange style, and there was a pic of a cat girl with her own Fur Bikini. See this page for the picture.
  • Berserk has Puck, the childlike and perpetually naked elf with a Ken doll crotch; a naked water fight between two well-muscled men; a Faux Action Girl who apparently gets off on flagellation; a demon that takes the form of a young naked girl with fuzzy antennae and moth wings... and a lot of blatant sexual imagery, though most of it isn't very appealing unless you are a big fan of blood-drenched demon rape.
    • Fetishists of spanking and/or domination get treated to a scene in which a wayward prostitute is punished by getting her bare ass spanked to the point of bruising.
      • By another female prostitute no less. Huzzah!
    • Guts ends up shirtless and whipped a lot. Gotta be at least a few fetishists out there.
    • And let's not forget Slan. The only thing that Guts accomplishes by impaling her with his BFS and blowing off half her torso with the Arm Cannon is giving her an orgasm. Yikes. Too Kinky To Tortureindeed.
    • And of course, the opening scene of the manga gives us Guts having sex with an attractive woman, who then turns into a giant boobied monster. And takes a cannonball to the face.
    • This troper enjoys this page a little too much... I mean, it's got whipping, unwilling sibling love, a shirtless Serpico, and then the biting... even if she's not really a vampire...
    • And as for characters with some weird fetishes, let's not forget Farnese's little thing about people burning alive, to the point where she spends a bit of "alone time" thinking real hard about that.
    • And still no mention of Casca yet? BLASPHEMY! An Action Girl pre-Eclipse with short hair that kicks ass. This troper has a thing for powerful women...
  • Queens Blade SWEET CRIPES.
    • OILY (near) naked female grappling, chicks in armor, everyone has GIANT busts.
    • MASSIVE CHESTS.
    • THE GAME HAS THEM EATING SAUSAGES (BOTH HANDS).
    • Shizuka IS THE HOTNESS.
    • THE HAIR! Short and Long, blonde brunette redhead, pinkhead, bluehead. Straight Messy, pinned up, let down.
    • Glasses....ahem...large....
    • That LUCKY SNAKE.
    • LARGE BREASTS.
    • Nanael's spilled "milk".
    • Wincest.
    • ARMOR DAMAGE~....Eyepatch?
    • THE BOOBS.
    • Going commando, leaf panties, white cotton, leather thongs, bloomers, jelly, metal.
    • Les Yay with no males in sight. Except for ONE lucky bastard (in the game)
    • SERIOUSLY Shizuka IS THE HOTNESS.
  • Cowboy Bebop has Ed, the 14 year old, crazy, hyper flexible, redheaded, tan, shoeless, tomboy, that wears really shiny and tight pants, a really billowy shirt, and has an extremely suspect relationship with a twenty-something conwoman. And she has golden eyes.
    • You talk about Ed and ignore Faye?!?!? What the fuck is wrong with you???
    • What, no mention of Ms Fanservice herself, Faye Valentine? Almost an entire episode spent tanning, cryogenically frozen for decades, amnesia for most of the series, her yellow top and hotpants, the strapless bikini she wore during said tanning, her Tsundere tendencies toward Spike...
    • How about Gren? This troper can't be the only one who was turned on by the end of episode 12, surely.
      • Definitely not the only one.
    • One episode has Faye putting her mouth on Ed's. Mostly to wake her up.
  • The manga of Elfen Lied seems to contain a lot of diaper-fetish fan service in the form of Nozomi. This includes a scene where the wind blows her skirt up, exposing her secret to Kohta. Granted she has to wear them because of psychological reasons (severe abuse) but it's pretty gratuitous.
    • The anime has given this troper a psychopath fetish.
      • The anime has given this troper a fetish for guys who are nice to psychopathic girls. Even if the guy annoyed the hell out of me before he met the said psychopathic girl.
    • The anime has given this troper a fetish for BrokenBirds
    • Nyu wets herself in the first episode.
  • Similarly, in Mai-Otome, it is revealed that Tomoe has an infantilism fetish, as revealed in the drama CD's, due to a prank gone wrong by Chie. In one scene where she is seen with Shizuru, variouschildren's toys are scattered around the room, though how they were used exactly is left up to the imagination of the viewer.
  • Blue Seed Beyond. Momijii is lounging in a pool, when Sakura reaches out from underneath to grab Momijii's breasts. Sakura seems to just want to see how much bigger they've grown (Momijii was around 14 when they last met), but she then just keeps squeezing.
    • Mikoto does the boob-grabby thing on Mai in the Mai-HiME manga.
    • From what this troper understands, the whole boob grabbing thing is considered no big deal between somewhat closer female friends in Japan. Some of it is probably exaggerated for the lulz in anime/manga, but supposedly to an extent this is just business as usual there.
    • Also seen in the first volume of Ranma 1/2, when Nabiki is poking Ranma's goods after seeing the transformation. And also when the age-shifting, aura-draining teacher appears, it seems that the only way to rid her of her terrible power is to poke some pressure points....on her bust....for 30 days straight.
    • Yep, although Momiji still asks Sakura just for how long she is going to touch her chest. The same Blue Seed OAVs also have a very intentional case of Fetish Fuel, namely Valencia, whose transformation destroys all of her clothes and technically leaves her naked, with her "outfit" consisting of plant-like parts of her body.
  • Angel Links: The heroine has a pet that lives in her cleavage.
  • The knights in Pretear have just as good a deal. They transform into the outfits the heroine wears. That's right —"Wearable Bishonen". Well, technically, as explained in-series, they become her energy shield, with clothes change only being a side effect... but considering the nature of the transformation, not only this isn't any less embarassing, but the series' theme of "creating life" implies that the transformations are actually very symbolic. Though it's really kind of hard not to get turned on by the very thought of merging with a Bishonen.
    Sasame: Now, let's become one.
  • In Ayeka's first appearance in the original Tenchi Muyo series, she captures Ryoko, puts her in a big bondage device, and does some electro-shock interrogation on her. Ryoko professes to rather enjoy it, and even compliments Ayeka on her proficiency. Add to this the later semi-canon revelation that Juraian princesses (like Ayeka) apparently go all dominatrix-y to express their love (she ties Tenchi up, dresses up in leather, and whips him while singing a song about calling her his queen in one side video), and suddenly the Ryoko/Ayeka shippers have a lot more ammo. To top it all off, Ayeka gets bound and gagged by Ryoko in the first OAV special.
    • Don't forget the Time & Space Adventurers episode of Universe where Ryoko and Ayeka kissed under the influence of Magical Girl Pretty Sammy
      • The original version flat-out states Pretty Sammy's magic caused that universe's Ryoko and Ayeka to become Schoolgirl Lesbians. Kiyone even admonishes them for having an "impure relationship".
    • The Tenchi multiverse is full of Fetish Fuel. Probably the most obvious demographics, though, are the incest fetishists (for which we have the entire Juraian royal family - especially in the OVAs, where it is revealed that both of Tenchi's parents were directly descended from Yosho/Katsuhito, and Tenchi's newly-introduced, deceptively-young sister and grandmother start fawning over him at the drop of a hat). Go ahead, tell me that Pretty Sammy wasn't built on fetishistic Sasamisploitation. I'll try and contain my laughter till you finish.
    • In episode 11 of Tenchi Muyo GXP, Kiriko and Amane were being dragged by a group of lesbian prostitutes. As they're being taken, Kiriko and Amane try to tell them they're straight and not into it. But the hookers either don't believe them or don't care. Later, we see Kiriko and Amane continue looking for Seina, after they've beaten up the lesbians with their Galaxy Police training and tied them up.
  • Yu Yu Hakusho is right full of this for a shounen, non-harem title. We have the Villainous Crossdresser Miyuki, we have all sorts of Ho Yay, and the most noticeable fetish fuel in the whole series is theYaoi Guys-themed guro/BDSM bits — as much as the censors will allow for a shounen series, anyway. Examples would be Karasu's wanting to kill those he loves, Sensui tying up Kuwabara (with a ball gag and leather harness in the manga, but standard-issue rope in the anime), and Sensui's "Kazuya" personality — armed with a gun-arm and willing to shoot at Yusuke for sexual pleasure — he may have raped him if Koenma didn't show up.
    • Dark Tournament referee Juri was not only the sexiest woobie ever, but she had a tail. A tail that was apparently strong enough to lift a thick-looking book up to eye-level, with a tip dexterous enough toturn the pages of said book. This troper was amazed.
    • This troper's pretty sure the Dark Tournament arc gave her her thing for watching woob-tacular stoic bishies getting the crap kicked out of them. Thank you, Kurama and Hiei.
    • This troper (female, straight until that point) has a thing for Kuwabara's sister. I barely remember her name, but still.
  • Dragonball Z is infamous for it's oodles and oodles of handsome men with washboard abs, most notably Goku and Vegeta.
    • For this troper it's Frieza. I know, pretty weird. He's calculative, well-mannered, androgynous, muscular, and the fact that he has a tail, prehensile feet and other animal characteristics makes this troper's heart melt. And his new VA (Chris Ayers) in Dragonball Kai only made him sexier.
    • This troper (unfortunatly) loves Cell, especially his goddamn sexy brittish voice in the english dub. Damnit, why are the bad guys always so hot?
    • For others, it's Jeice: what with his youthful appearance, long white hair, red skin, Aussie accent, disturbingly short-legged pants, and the implied Ho Yay with Burter, is it any wonder why he's the most popular Ginyu Force member?
    • For the fanboys, it's Bulma, who's given the audience quite a few panty shots and even (albiet briefly) appeared without any clothes.
    • For some, the Supreme Kai of Time from Dragon Ball: Xenoverse can do it. She's a cute loli, what more could you ask for? And don't worry; she's older than she looks.
  • Lucky Star has schoolgirl Otaku Surrogate foot closeups that would make Quentin Tarantino himself drool.
  • Eiken. Oh, dear god, Eiken. Gag Boobs as far as the eye can see, with a heavy (no pun intended) emphasis on "gag". This editor thinks it's actually called Achin' for this reason...
  • Everything in Tokyo Mew Mew has been fetishized. It's a completely innocent series, but put kemonomimi Magical Girls in anything and it'll all be jumped on, from suddenly portraying the cafe uniforms as Fanservice With A Smile to fetishing up the Schoolgirl Lesbians to... well, this troper has seen Retasu/Neko-Ichigo doujinshi. Ew.
    • There's also a futanari doujinshi involving the girls getting penises like the sort their male animal counterparts would have...
      • It's been fan-translated to boot! "Today we're serving lettuce, nya!"
  • Speaking of domination, apparently the Tsundere character type has led to people developing a certain... preference for having women yell at them.
    • This female editor prefers male tsunderes and enjoys seeing them get forcefully dominated in yaoi series. There's a reason why so many yaoi works have Rape Is Love; the majority of Yaoi Fangirlslike it.
  • Zero No Tsukaima could be called "Harry Potter with added BDSM/domination textsubtext". The bossy female lead has a boy whom she treats as a pet, chained up with a dog collar and sleeping on the floor beside her. He eats at her feet and is told that he's lucky to get such treatment. She even beats him with a riding crop when he steps out of line. The light novels, on the other hand, not so much.
    • To be fair, he was summoned to her world when she tried to summon a familiar. Everyone else got cute fantasy animals, like giant moles, phoenixes, dragons and the like. She got... some random guy from Tokyo. Given the genre, she definitely won out in the end.
  • Shugo Chara is a perfectly innocent Shoujo series... but certain fanboys began to slightly overthink the circumstances of the young, 'cool and spicy' lead finding 3 large shiny eggs suspiciously positioned in her bed one morning.
    • It really doesn't help that Ikuto and Amu tend to get into a lot of proto-erotic situations every time they meet. The ice cream scene, for example.
    • Also, Yaya's "would-be self" is a baby. If that's not blatant infantilist fanservice, I don't know what is.
    • A recent episode had Catboy Ikuto mind-controlled, dressed up in a school uniform and glasses, and playing a musical instrument (his violin) evilly. I mean, really.
    • For this troper, Ikuto's Death Rebel form seriously cranked up his attractiveness level. It help's that I have a bit of a fetish/obsession when it comes to cool scythes, but combined with the fur-lined trench coat, the glazed eyes, and the fact that he's completely mind-controlled and doesn't remember anything he does as Death Rebel...
  • Everyone in Samurai Pizza Cats is a furry (and a robot) anyway, but there was one episode where two of the girls were wearing Fur Bikinis. So Fetish Fuel can even be redundant.
  • Ikki Tousen is already a Panty Fighter series, but Ryomou Shimei was the first character to make this troper realize just how much he likes eyepatches. (Though Fujin from Final Fantasy VIII is a close second - but graphics back then weren't that great, so it took Ryomou for it to really sink in.) Plus the Meido outfit, plus the Yandere mode, and a Tsundere mode, not to mention the grappling...
    • I have a serious Hot Chick With A Sword fetish (that Ask.com "chicks with swords" commercial? yeah, I totally could have been that guy), to the point that the tendency of women in (some) Japanese works to use, not swords, but naginatas kind of annoyed me. (And yes, I understand the historical influences going on.) Then Kanu Unchou came along, with her Beyond The Impossible sexiness. Now my sword and polearm fetishes are neck-and-neck.
  • They Are My Noble Masters contains quite a few otaku-fetishes, including Brother Sister Incest (and the sister-sister variety), woman-on-woman rape (between aforementioned sisters), gratituous nudity, Panty Shots. It luckily still has a compelling list of characters that grant some depth to the silliness, but it will surely raise some eyebrows with people who are not that familiar with the ecchi genre.
    • Uhhh... a big one here would be maids.
  • Coyote Ragtime Show has the 12 SISTERs, goth-loli robot chicks. Said group contains a Bifauxnen, triplets, a Meganekko, and maid outfits. Not to mention Clothing Damage...
    • Angelica, the busty Action Girl who's always eating, did it for This Troper; the way she ate those biscuits she carried everywhere was so suggestive. According to rumour, she was modelled after Angelina Jolie.
    • This troper can confidently say that June has convinced her that women in men's dress suits are dead freaking sexy. And the way she handles those knives...
  • How about that anime Grenadier, about an unbelievably busty sharp-shooting lady? Plenty of marshmallow hell, hot spring scenes (the main character had a particular fondness for long baths), and funky camera angles in that series.
  • The Get Backers manga occasionally crosses from blatant Fanservice and Fetish Fuel into softcore porn.
    • To elaborate some: Himiko and Sakura, the only "good" female fighters, both get their clothing damaged, and Himiko in particular cannot go an arc without a Panty Shot. She can barely go a panel in the Eternal Bond arc without it, and the artist is, uh, detail oriented. And Hevn! Dear God, Hevn! Ban takes every chance he can get to squeeze her breasts and the woman is allergic to clothing. There's also Toshiki's and Juubei's devotion to Kazuki; Kazuki wouldn't need a geass to get them to be his sex slaves forever! Also, he could tie them up!
  • Pilnus. Okay, seriously. She has chains. She frequently binds Renais in said chains. She calls Renais "koneko-chan". She chains Renais, steps on her, and at multiple points licks her. For this editor, it was pure, concentrated Squick, but has heard people describe it as yuri. Let's weep for humanity.
    • If it had been any show but Gao Gai Gar, this troper probably would also have been aching for more of the bondage torture scenes. This troper, however, is a major Super Robot fan, with a huge thing for Gao Gai Gar, and found that scene to be a whole different kind of torture.
  • Bamboo Blade has quite a few closeups of the female heroines' feet (justification being they need to go barefooted because they practice Kendo, but still). It even has a scene where Tamaki takes off her socks in the first episode, which is then repeated at the beginning of the second episode for good measure.
  • There's an omake at the end of episode 14 of Gintama where Gintoki is seen wearing a pink frilly apron. Fully clothed underneath, mind you, but if you think about it...
    • And the episode where Gintoki and Katsura are forced to join a drag queen bar. Or the one where Gintoki gratuitously strips (and suggestively poses) in a game of what is essentially strip mahjong. And Okita's sadism...
    • or that time that Hijikata and Gintoki are handcuffed together...
  • Lin from Spirited Away is already extremely attractive◊, and that apron◊just makes her hotter, too. Oh, and for the Furries (and this troper can say that), there's the bonus that Word Of God says that she's a transformed weasel. Doujinshi waiting to happen there.
    • Yubaba's absolute control over people's memories and being able to bind them by removing their names probably inspired some mind-control/memory-control/domination fetishes... though probably not with Yubaba herself.
  • The Devil May Cry prequel manga had a disturbing Wonderland-inspired scene - in which a young, freckle-faced girl gets her wish to become beautiful - aging roughly ten years, and coming onto Dante. That should be fuel for Age and Transformation Fetishists, including all the other stuff that Alice in Wonderland setting tend to spark.
    • And it's implied that a Demon-form Dante either had given into the urges and regretted it -judging from his reaction afterwards. The splash page of the 'encounter' has a disturbingly erotic undertone.
    • Of course, some would have preferred that she come onto him without aging at all.
  • Eyeshield21 provides a fair amount of fuel.
    • Simply the standard football uniforms would be enough to be fetish for many people, between the tight pants and the loaded concept of football and football players in America.
    • Ditto the above for the series' cheerleaders.
    • And speaking of cheerleaders — if the busty sort isn't your bag of tea, the show also gives us Suzuna.
    • If you're a chubby chaser, then Kurita — large, powerful, yet sweet-natured — will be very relevant to your interests.
    • And for the discerning reader interested in very buff men, this show is a goldmine and Gaoh is a dream come true.
    • The fact that the series shows off every type of male body possible and the very distinctive faces dives the series quite a lot variety in the fetish fuel department. Whether it's cute shotaro boys, waif-ish bishonen, or outright buff GAR types, the series knows how to appeal to a female audience. The series also has no problem showing male characters in various states of undress, whether it's necessary or not.
    • And the ridiculous amount of detail the artist spends on every little muscle in the male body. As well as ass shots. And crotch shots. Oh lord, the crotch shots. Really, this series is like a Panty Fighterfor women at times.
    • Hiruma very much enjoys using a combination of blackmail, favors, threats, and manipulation to make people his slaves — and yes, he does refer to them like that. If you don't think that that's fuel for the BDSM crowd, not even a remedial course in the Rules of the Internet could save you.
      • He waves that gun around a lot too. Hell, even his... unique... character design, the ears, the fangs, the really long, tapered fingers (not claws like in the anime) and the many panels where he's just about to put that stick of gum in his mouth...
    • just... every single male character and many females. One can't help but wonder if each character was meant to appeal to a different fetish. First lets start with the Devilbats...
    • Sena: Adorkable, cute shotaro boy, cowardly lion and has AMAZING legs.
    • Monta: Dedicated, loyal, hot blooded monkey-boy who's VERY good with his feet.
    • Hiruma: Lanky, punkish, pierced, bishonen, VERY long, creamy skin, sharp features, sharp teeth, fangs, elf-like ears, agile fingers, mischievous, ultra-intellegent, sadistic, makes people his "slaves", and has no problem stripping people and taking pictures.
    • Kurita: Innocent, cute, appeals to fat and inflation fetishists, a very lovable gentle giant, a total badass on the field, and a lover of hugs.
    • Ha-Ha Brothers: Three fun-loving bad boys who do EVERYTHING together. Individually, Juumonji is intelligent, ruggedly handsome, and a has a cool scar, Kuroki is hotblooded, has full lips, silky hair, and long eyelashes, and Toganou is a ladiback artist with angular features, cool shades, and nice cheek bones.
    • Taki: Flexible, bold, classically handsome, tall, silky hair, and a tendency to rip open his shirt.
    • As for the female characters, there's Mamori: tall, slim, busty, long-legged, blue-eyed half-American with a sweet and motherly yet fiercely protective, tough and dedicated personality. Plus her love-hate relationship with Hiruma is a huge bonus. Energetic, petite and small-chested Suzuna and her relationship with Sena is also very loveable.
  • Fruits Basket has transformation triggered by being embraced by a member of the opposite sex. And they're naked when they transform back. Also, there's Ayame's shop, which specializes in what he calls "men's fantasy." And if that's not enough, since the revelation that Ayame, who turns into a snake, and his assistant, Mine, are a couple (and judgeing by the length of his hair in those flashbacks, have been for quite some time), this troper has spent far too much time pondering the specifics of their relationship.
    • Not to mention that it's popular fanon that Ayame and Shigure are lovers, with the heavy implication that Hatori gets in (or at least got in) on the action, too. They're obviously not in canon, but we can dream.
    • Then there's the scene where the snake-form Ayame comes slithering out of a completely oblivious Tohru's shirt. Man, the stuff he could get up to in people's clothes...
    • This troper found Akito about ten times more attractive when it was revealed that she was a woman.
  • Speed Grapher contains T&A, light to heavy bondage, sensory deprivation, Ho Yay, bodypainting (with a slight allusion to blood being used), photographic voyeurism and a lot of ultra-manly chests. Over the series? No... Over the opening credits.
    • Although it features standard fetishes like bondage, sensory deprivation, heat/cold contrasting stimulus, these really only form the background in this series to the true fetishes. Your dentist, diamond-eating, living tattoo fetishes.
    • The fact that in this series you can gain super-powers from your fetishes speaks volumes on its content... and yet it's not Hentai...
  • Shana seems to have trouble keeping her clothes on during battles. Half the time, a good deal of her clothing is torn or cut up, and at some points she's wearing nothing more than tattered rags. Plus, there's also times where she seems to wear nothing but bandages...
  • A lot of fangirls (and probably some fanboys) got turned on to terribly scarred and skeletal men by the way of Faust VIII from Shaman King. Someone was probably turned on by his necrophilia angle, too. (He's a necromancer, and he carries around the remains of the woman he loves... most logically, for fighting, but what's stopping him from going further? They are married.)
  • For good measure on the topic of creepy blonds... Andrea Cavalcanti in Gankutsuou has some serious fetish fuel properties for this troper, and probably many others. Naked, in a bathtub strewn with flower petals, drinking red wine... and then he crushes the wineglass in his hand until he bleeds. Just one scene of fetish fuel, if this troper recalls right.
  • For those with a wedding dress fetish, Wedding Peach has them covered. That and the arc where one of the devils lives inside a human to spy on the love angels, and the devil and the human are both guys.
  • Le Chevalier D Eon looks loaded with it. We have mind control through black magic, mind control through spiritual possession, that very possession causes a Gender Bender, the possessor is older sister and the possession victim is the younger brother, and loads of cross-dressing.
  • Kaleido Star has several circus artists (both males and females, though mostly females) who are not only extremely flexible and bendy, but also wear very frilly and/or form-fitting outfits when on-stage. And let's not even get about the fuckton of Les Yay between several of the females. Or Rosetta. Or the Foe Yay between Leon and Yuri that even brings on a sword fight...
  • A few notable Devil Fruit users have powers reeking of Power Perversion Potential. Robin and Luffy are two of the most notable examples, both of whom this troper has seen fanart/doujins of featuring their powers exploited to sometimes disturbing degrees. The author has even stated once in his SBS column that Buggy's penis can detach from his body (I don't know the name for that fetish, so would someone kindly chime up?). Remember,he feels whatever his disconnected body parts feel.
    • Alright, Tropers, sing it with me now. I woke up one morning, and my penis was missing again...
    • This happens all the time, it's detachable...
    • There's been a high level of kink in the manga recently, too bad a good chunk of it revolves around Fan Disservice territory, but you never know... Robin in particular seems to be a bondage magnet as of late.
    • And now we can add Gender Bending to the madness.
    • Admit it. Anytime Luffy, Zoro, Ace or any other buff guy loses his shirt (or in Ace's case, is shirtless all the time) someone out there is probably drooling or fainting.
    • In One Piece, Luffy can extent any part of his body. Also, Mr. 2 Bon Clay. Luffy put it best—"We caught ourselves a man-lady!" Best of all—Mr. 2 Bon Clay copying Nami and proving that he can even change his body by flashing everybody. Even funnier in the movie retelling, when Lovable Sex Maniac Sanji is watching the scene.
    • Luffy's made of rubber. Doesn't that mean that he's always using protection?
    • Nami is pretty much Ms. Fan Service of One Piece, but recently she's been the focus of girl on girl action, if you know what I mean!
    • Ace as James Bondage in the Impel Down Arc. It's like Oda was catering to his fangirls! Seriously, pretty much every panel of him was devoted to showing off his beaten and bloodied body while chained or tied up!
      • This troper considered him walking fetish fuel, with a few adorkable tendencies to balance out the hot. Fire powers? Check. A great bod, constantly on display? Check. Freckles? Check (and don't judge, this troper does have a thing for freckles). Tattoos? Check. Plus, his little narcolepsy issue would make him very easy to take home once you've fed him. Muahahahaha.
    • Amazon Lily Island. That is all.
    • Blackbeard. Massive, hairy man who infrequenly buttons his shirt up completely. DON'T JUDGE ME.
    • Does an example qualify if it caused someone to develop a fetish? Because after the Chapter 553 cover page, this troper seems to have an ice cream fetish.
    • Zoans can change into three main forms: their human (or original) form, their animal form, and their in-between form which is a mix between their human and animal form. It's practically a furry/bestiality wet dream!
    • Sadi-chan can not be interpreted as anything but ~mmmm~ this trope.
  • The Prince Of Tennis? Lots of bishonen. Ho Yay and Foe Yay. Interesting fashion sense (specially in the bromides). Ho Yay and Foe Yay. Sakuno and Tomoka being epitomes of Moe (with Sakuno bordering on Lolicon bait in the anime). Ho Yay and Foe Yay. Two or three adult ladies who have INCREDIBLE assets... Did we mention the HEAPS of Ho Yay and Foe Yay?
  • In Kekkaishi the busty and rambunctious Atora, Shishio Gen's instructor, has no qualms hugging Gen with his face on her breasts and loudly reminding him that they used to bathe together (and nochalantly suggesting that they do so again). Add this to the fact that Gen admits that, due to years of conditioning from Atora's training, he is absolutely incapable of denying any vocal command she gives to him...
    • And then there's Hime with her husky voice and the fact that she's bound to her bed. Bondage, anyone?
      • Not to mention that her multiple kitsune tails might appeal to furries.
    • And let's not forget all of the ayakashi with tentacles...
    • Tokine has an energy lasso. Need I say more?
      • That ability actually has this troper's admittedly dirty mind conjuring up all sorts of sexy images when he saw this page. If Tokine/Yoshimori ever happens, oh the possibilities of such powers...
    • All of the kekkaishi have "shikigami" - magical servants who can take whatever appearance their master chooses. Yoshimori uses a shikigami clone of Tokine to try to get him away from a would be girlfriend, but you have to wonder - if you could make an obedient clone of anyone you could imagine, wouldn't you?
  • In Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, the standard way to apprehend a criminal is using binding magic, which leads to ridiculous amounts of bondage◊.
    • While certainly the most common, the above is hardly the only fetish in the series. An obscenely Stripperific black leather outfit with Fate, Animorphism with Yuuno, dog-girl, wolf-man and cat-girls with Arf, Zafira and the Lieze twins respectively, a Tsundere Lolita with Vita, an Elegant Gothic Lolita with Lutecia, and that's only from memory. There are also likely those aroused by Nanoha's most common method for acquiring new allies.
    • And the People Jars fetish? This anime loves it. Although it gives as much shudders for this troper as fetish fuel
    • It might just be me, but this troper found Fate's tired panting rather suggestive. Also, I'm going to hell for this, but Yuuno's ferret form has...interesting applications.
      • Are you referring to this◊?
    • This troper was watching the scene with the Volkenritter kneeling before Hayate right out of the Great Big Book Of Everything, and his eyes were fixed straight on Signum, kneeling, in her imperfectly-covering black garment. And that voice...I'm just imagining her saying "Yes, my lord."
    • Speaking of the Wolkenritter, Hayate is confirmed by Word of God as a Covert Pervert, frequently feeling up her knights and otherwise playing aroudn with them. This nautrally leads to obvious concluisons as to what ELSE they got up to as she grew up...
  • Quite a few bloggers have stated that Ichigo Mashimaro is likely to turn one into a lolicon within seconds. Have you seen those four girls? So moe!
  • This editor knows for a fact that most of the second arc of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni is someone's Fetish Fuel....
    • Don't forget many of the moments before, and after, disasters. Higurashi is fanservice galore.
    • The second episode of Kai has Keiichi cornered in a storehouse during a round of "zombie tag" by his classmates. The classmates who corner him are his all-female Nakama, and they tag him bytickling him. Poor Lucky guy. And then there's the punishment games, of which Keiichi is often the butt of; for losing zombie tag, he gets a swan outfit, and for losing a game of Old Maid Geezer later on, he puts on a Meido outfit. It especially helps that Keiichi is a Bishounen.
      • And his pants fall almost all the way off while he's being tickled.
        • And how could we forget that Rena avoids being zombified by Keiichi by employing her sex appeal? Clever girl!
        • The punishment games were just made for these. The punishments tend be sexual in nature- Keiichi's frequent crossdressing was already mentioned, but whenever the girls lose they often have to wear very fetishy and skimpy outfits. It's even better if you're into humiliation.Heck, just look at them(Keiichi included).
        • How about these? For one, here's a reason more than one person was going "Stupid Sexy Keiichi". And that's just the tip of the iceberg...not really into that myself, but someone's bound to like these- Tsundere Mion going full dere mode and wearing a cleavege-exposing wedding dress, pedo-bait Rika in a form-fitting swimsuit with cat ears, Satoko, who is even more of a pedo-bait, in a white apron and tights sitting and blushing with food spilled all over her, with the camera constantly focusing on either their chest or crotch... there's definetely some Playing To The Fetishes going on here.
  • Pet Shop Of Horrors is catgirl cheesecake. The beautiful Count D is surrounded by animals that turn into/are seen as humans, generally with some telling feature like a tail or fuzzy ears, to himself, the owner, and anyone else who inhales his mysterious incense. Many of the pets, like the Mermaid and Naga, are directly shown to be loved romantically by their owners, and even the "platonic" pets tend to be gorgeous. Additionally, D implies that he'd like to keep his rival/friend/slash-buddy Leon as a pet, and one special animal is so infatuated with D that he could just eat him alive...
    • There's also the part where the aforementioned pet is the only character that manages to kiss D in the whole series, before attempting to eat him. And then D admitted that he would have willingly lost a limb or two to have him in his shop.
    • One of the first stories in the manga concerned a doll-like pretty young girl who was actually a rabbit. And would gorge herself on candy and then graphically, horribly give birth to little baby rabbits. Did I say give birth? I mean they tore their way through her stomach. Somebody... probably liked it...
  • Bizenghast, oh Bizenghast is full of possible kinks, some bordering on someone else's Squick or Nightmare Fuel due to the Manga's nature as a horror piece.
  • One scene in FLCL has Naota on his bed as Ninamori crawls towards him, all while she wears glasses and Naota's pajamas, the latter being a little tight for her.
    • Another scene in FLCL has Naota on his bed as Haruko crawls towards him, all while she wears only a bath towel, which is a little small for her. And by small, we mean her-ass-is-exposed small.
    • Two Three words; "Swing the bat." Unfortunately, this troper can't recall the name of the trope for Haruko's...hands-on teaching methods. (It's not quite Visual Innuendo.) Also, Haruko in a nurse's outfit. And the DAICON IV Playboy Bunny outfit.
      • That'd be the Hands On Approach. And, for the record, This Troper's never wanted to be a 12-year old boy with robots coming out of his head so much in his life.
      • I know, right?
      • Later on, Haruko appearing in a baseball uniform with very short shorts. * untranslatable gibbering*
    • And while we're at it, Kitsurubami's Clothing Damage after she ends up in the river.
    • Also in the manga both Ninamori and Haruko appear in Noata's bed. If this troper recalls there was some some definite innuendo in the dialog before, during, and after this scene. Did I mention it takes up a full page?
    • Uhm, robots coming out of your head, anyone? While the characters are visibly distressed and straining to let the things out?
  • Shader from Chrono Crusade is nearly a walking checklist of fetishes: Perky Female Minion, Hot Scientist, Cat Girl, and Meganekko all rolled into one. Meow.
    • It's not just Shader. Daisuke Moriyama seems to have done his best to work as many fetishes as he could into the manga. Among the female cast we have Fiore, a maid that's called "sister" by her younger charge (with whom she has a suspiciously close relationship with); Rosette, a nun with a gun whose uniform includes a corset and skirt that leads to Zettai Ryouiki; Azumaria, the Token Loli; Rizelle, the half-demon half-spider "Marionette Mistress"; and Satella, a busty German witch that has a good bit of cleavage... oh, yeah, and in the manga she's a shotacon that sends Chrono (the hero that appears to be twelve) to Marshmallow Hell when she gets drunk. And then we have more than one scene of Clothing Damage, a nightmare that shows Chrono naked and chained by his wrists, another set of nightmares where Rosette dreams Chrono is drinking blood from her neck with his fangs (first dream she's naked, second dream she's wearing a tattered slip dress), and to top it off Aion seems very obsessed with Chrono because it turns out they're identical twins!. The anime went over the top and made Aion an apparent nymphomaniac on top of it, which lead to somedisturbing scenes where he suggestively holds and kisses both Satella and Rosette. Pretty much the only thing they didn't have is nurses.
  • I thank Rose Of Versailles for not only making me realise I was gay, but for making me love strong, beautiful women dressed up as males.
    • You, too? I'm pretty sure Oscar is responsible for my drag-king fixation.
    • I'm not afraid to admit it — me too. Some stay for the Gorgeous Period Dress, some for the gorgeous bifauxnen.
    • This straight male troper has an androgyny fetish (but only in women!) because of Oscar.
    • This female troper doesn't even like Ikeda's drawing style that much, and she still considers Oscar ridiculously hot.
    • I'm not really into Wholesome Crossdressers. But I think Marie Antoinette in this series is really hot, so when Jean dresses up as her (note this is the French name), he looks so uncannily like her it's easy to think it's actually a girl with the English name "Jean". Or maybe it is a girl and she's doing some really good Recursive Crossdressing.
  • The OP sequence for Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei? LOTS of bondage. And three shots of girls in sexual positions. And...
    • Not to mention Kaere's Panty Shots. And Arai Chie. Hell, the show is filled with fanservice, to the point of parody.
      • The pointless fanservice is parodying the trend of selling TV series with sex and suggestiveness that have nothing to do with the plot.
      • It isn't just the ladies. This troper did an explosive nasal aneurysm on seeing two of the Itoshiki brothers. Nomozu and Mikoto are very attractive to those who like teachers, doctors, glasses and they look alike enough to be mistaken for the other. Hmm... Nomozu also wears a hakama and other traditional Japanese attire outside of his hometown. There's all of the suicide attempts too, which could make him a Woobie...
      • The scene in the end of episode 5 was intended to be Nightmare Fuel, but didn't have quite the intended effect on this troper...
    • Despite Meru's claim that bandaged girls are not popular anymore, Abiru has converted plenty of guys to the appeal of injured bandaged girls where other girls like Rei Ayanami in the same situation, failed to turn them on.
    • Rin is quite popular with the guys who love girls with plenty of junk in the trunk.
    • Kiri has served as fanservice material in the show with her DON'T OPEN scenes, not to mention Episode 4 of the second season where she teases Majiru with her skimpy underwear has helped converted many fans to the moeness of Hikikomoris.
    • This Troper got a serious turn on from the scene where Manami offers to cheat on her husband with Nozomu. Also, Ai Kaga. There is something about that submissive apologetic nature...
    • If you're the kind of person who might pay attention to it, you might notice that the female characters all seem to have large feet. This, combined with two different characters, Maria and Kiri, who almost never wear shoes, has given people the idea that it might be the Mangaka's fetish.
    • I want a Matoi Stalker!
  • Kirby Right Back At Ya! had a scene featuring Tiff (or Fumu) in an anime in which she had big breasts and erotic poses and dialogue.
    • Hilariously enough, the dialogue was actually recorded from what she said earlier in the day (without her knowing) and deliberately put out of context to make it seem erotic.
  • The Hunter X Hunter anime has an extremely hot moment where Kurapika is alone in a void, completely naked except for the multitude of faintly-glowing chains wound liberally around him, holding his arms above his head, and he looks like he's in some sort of trance as he mumbles What Do You Mean Its Not Symbolic metaphors to himself.
    • Worse in the manga - there he outright admits to ' only pleasuring himself' with a chain during his training...
    • Hisoka. Someone has to be turned on by an Evil Clown who chases after not only little boys, but at least two people in the Ryoudan. But then again, this series is like a Shotacon fan's heaven.
      • This troper finds shotacon and pedophillia creepy, but completely cotradicts herself by getting turned on whenever Hisoka kills someone. Or whenever he appears on the screen, for that matter.
    • Chapter 299 is pretty blatant vore appeal. Meryem eats Pouf and Yupi alive...and all three of them enjoy it. Cue "Mein Teil" jokes here.
    • The Chimera Ants in general, for those of you who like kemonomimi and furry stuff.
    • Ponzu; a cute girl with an adorable hat and control over bees and poisons. Not to mention her cold/distant personality, which directly contradicts her appearance, and how her apparent modus operandi is to put people to sleep/poison them so they can't fight back. What's not to love?
  • This troper refuses to believe that he's the first one to consider the appeal of Jungle Wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu to vore fetishists.
    • It astounds me how little popularity this series gets when most of the stories revolve around blatant fetishes!!!!!
  • Apparently Shotaro Kaneda of Tetsujin 28 a.k.a. Gigantor. At least, enough that an entire fetish (and accompanying trope) is named after him.
  • Strike Witches attempts to define this by including everything it can. Lolis, no pants, bare feet, mecha-musume, guns, eyepatches, animal-ears - not just catgirls but anythinggirls, arguably cosplay where everyone wears a different uniform, panties, I've probably lost track.
    • You also forgotten the light novels which, while "lighter" on fanservice, has more Les Yay that will make Perrine jealous.
  • Suzumiya Haruhi rules this trope, though it is invoked, and its purpose is not simply fanservice, but also comedic release: Haruhi forces Mikuru to wear all sorts of 'fetishy' (and revealing) outfits to make her even more arousing. This is done both to for the personal arousement... uh... I mean amusement (no, no!) of course (no!) and for "advertising". So far she was dressed as a maid, a waitress, a nurse, a miko, a cheerleader, a bunny girl (granted, Haruhi eagerly puts herself in one, too) and even a frog costume. And then... Kyon has his thing for ponytails!
  • Oh god, Mikuru. I love Moe girls. I've only seen about two episodes, and already I want to take her home and snuggle with her.
    • Apart from the invoked stuff, we have:
      • Yuki. Where to start?
      • Tsuruya has teh fangs.
      • Even Asakura Ryoko... With her knife... Duuude..
      • And then there's that unwavering, innocent smile of hers, which she maintains even when she attempts to kill Kyon.
    • The scene depicting Haruhi attempting to get the conclusion to Kyon's story from him. She comes within inches of giving him the Mikuru treatment.
    • After watching Disappearance, Yuki can bite me◊anytime. Rawr!
  • Lovely Complex? Tsundere tall girls, snarky short guys, tantalizing transgirls, psycho super-models, yummy yummy! This troper has a talent for adding alliteration to her persistent pimping of this sexy series!
  • This troper is embarrassed to say, but that shoujo comic Miriam. If the selfless Wild-West equivalent of the Yamato Nadeshiko, the trio of gorgeous lawbreaking bishonen (who do, occasionally, wear leather pants- literally) and- heaven forbid- the chipper, spitfire eight year old girl don't immediately bring filthy thoughts to your mind... I've gotta say, for me, it was the creepy Big Bad Sinister Minister. Who looks and acts like the unholy lovechild of Anderson and Revolver Ocelot. Except a good bit pervier. Also, comedic crossdressing. Ach, my eyes.
  • In Sonic X, we've got all of the cross-species romance, such as Shadow the Hedgehog and Maria the human, and Knuckles the Echidna and Rouge the Bat.
    • And in the older Sonic anime, we get Sarah, who has a cat tail and ears.
    • Word of God says that Shadow and Maria are sibling-like, though... doesn't stop shippers, mind you.
    • There was also a suspicious scene between Rouge and Topaz, the latter giving the former a gift, and acting decidedly tsundere-like...
  • In Hayate The Combat Butler, we've got Hayate dressing up like a girl and then being abused by Nagi. Also, when he tries to demonstrate his new wind technique, he's showing it to skirt-wearing Maria.
    • And then there's Nagi and her friends whose Fanservice shots clearly cater to the Lolicon crowd. Plus, there's also the fact that nearly every female character is Moe beyond belief (even Hinagiku's mom!).
    • Also, when Nagi force Hayate to dress up like a cat girl (which happened in episode 8 of the first season, for the records). When Tama, her pet white tiger, sees him like this, he pounces Hayate and starts humping him. Since Hayate has a feminine appearance, Nagi doesn't even know if Tama did that because he though Hayate was a cute guy or cute girl.
    • Let's not forget Ayumu, whose Service Shot was an image of her eaing noodles. In addition, she actually got censored for the way she ate a chocolate strawberry. Even right before the cut, the way she closes her eyes and positions her lips and tongue... Hoo, boy...
  • Has it escaped our attention that some people are attracted to Starscream?! The fact that he's evil is not surprising, but that he's a giant freaking robot might put fangirls off. And don't get us started onKiss Players...
  • The second episode of Azumanga Daioh. This Troper swore when Osaka had hiccups for four solid minutes, someone had this as their kink. And it was mine.
    • You, too?
    • Osaka in general. In one scene, she goes from "It sure is summer" to "You know, Kagura could swim totally naked" in 30 seconds. If her powers got into the wrong hands...
    • Agreed, Osaka is probably my biggest character crush of all time. It pains me to see her in pain. I do believe that it's due to Osaka that I like more average, flat-chested girls.
    • Delicious Brown Kagura (WITH tanlines!).
    • Yomi in Girlish Pigtails and full power Zettai Ryouiki. Oh gods, hold me back,please.
    • Sakaki. Just Sakaki.
    • Sakaki is my second favorite for Fetish Fuel. A kindhearted athlete with a soft spot for all things cute, especially cats. What's not to love?
    • Definitely agree with everything about Yomi, but who else thinks that Nyamo is the best? She has an adorable face and nice figure, but is not quite as overdone as Sakaki. She's athletic and frequently wears loose fitting shirts that are just a little too short.
    • In the manga, the scene where the girls put on male cheering outfits has them in very revealing Sarashi. I was sounding kinda like Kaorin after seeing that.
  • Any scene in which any character wears hakama counts for this troper. Seriously; she has yet to see a single man in anime, manga or real life who doesn't look hotter in formal Japanese dress (or a woman who doesn't look better done up as a miko or kendoist).
  • Godchild. The fanservice was embarassingly obvious (and the Yaoi Guys) but it had oodles of fetish fuel, simply oodles, all intentional. Ho Yay. Bro Yay. Manservants. Whipping. Lolicon, plenty of lolicon. All the ephemera of a Gothic Victorian shoujo series... but this troper found one of her kinks in a chapter with a young male character with self harm scars on his hands. Oh, Lord.
    • Not to mention how often the mangaka enjoys trotting out the "Reveal at the end of the arc that the girl is actually a boy in drag (usually forced drag)" plot point. This troper got to the scene where this is pulled AS the actually-a-guy is in a Victorian bondage device AND a dress AND licking his master's hand, and briefly boggled at the fact that the entire series isn't plastic-wrapped and any kid in Borders could read it in one of those comfy armchairs they provide. Then she celebrated a purchase well made.
  • The main character of Inubaka is obsessed with dogs, going as far as to eat dog food (and enjoy it), catch dog poop in her hands and... well, if an issue doesn't have anything remotely resemblingfanservice, it's a miracle.
    • Also, in one volume, Suguri is dressed as a maid, to the new recruit's shock.
  • This troper is gonna have a book fetish soon, thanks to Yomiko Readman from Read or Die.
    • Holy crap, yes. There's more than one scene where Yomiko might as well be having sex with a book, and despite strong Perverse Sexual Lust for her this troper has trouble deciding which one I'd rather be.
    • When Yomiko first meets Nancy Makuhari, she's also dressed as a Hot Librarian.
  • Slayers. Naga The White Serpent. Gag Boobs. Noblewomans Laugh. Need I say more?
  • Gundam 00 has Kati Mannequin manipulating (in a positive way) Patrick Coulosaur into doing what she says by telling him to wait for the right moment, "and she'll make a man out of him". In fact, their whole relationship consists of him being her loyal lapdog, and her yanking the chain ever so slightly to get him to comply (though she does wind up genuinely falling for him). Add in a generous dose ofSubordinate Excuse on Patrick's end, and it defintely hits the superior officer/subordinate kink nail on the head. Also, for the guys who like dominant women, it also appeals to the masochistic male crowd.
    • Tieria Erde hits LOTS of Fetish Fuel points. For a start, he's so androgynously bishounen that you could easily mistake him for a girl until you hear his deep voice. Uses, along with his comrades, aLatex Space Suit when he pilots his Gundam. Usually wears glasses, too. Gains Moe points as he becomes more emotional. Has quite the Ho Yay with Lockon Stratos. And in the second season, he makes a scarily wonderful Wholesome Crossdresser, wearing a revealing dress (complete with big fake boobs), hair extensions and a gun hidden... in his garter belt... and thanks to this particular incident, lots of fangirls swear up and down that they'd go lesbian for a female Tieria. It doesn't help that, during said episode, he has HEAPS of Foe Yay with Ribbons Almark, ex Enigmatic Minion and now Big Bad. HOLY CRAP, YUN KOUGA, YOU CREATED A WINNER.
    • And then there's the part in the final OP animation where he's not only totally naked, but looking suspiciously like he's getting Mind Raped over Vedalink by Regene and/or Ribbons. It's already inspired one or two fanfics.
    • The Innovators in general are pretty fetish fuel-y, what with their sheer androgyny and ability to directly interface with computers. Among their ranks is Hilling Care, who's a reverse-trap of sorts and aLittle Miss Badass of a Dark Action Girl, and seems to have a thing for Ribbons, who is her twin brother.
    • Allelujah has quite the case of Split Personality. Hallelujah is quite more aggressive and dark than his original self. It's a common cliché in fanwork to make Halle the local sex god.
    • Soma Peries /Marie Parfacy has a little something for everyone, whether it be her Troubled Past or her White Hair as well as her Type 2 Tsundere personality. and if that doesn't do it for you Marie has a definite Yamato Nadeshiko vibe. Did I forget to mention she is also one of the few real Action Girl characters in Gundam in years.
    • Whenever Marina Ismail speaks, she's soft, subtle...and rather seductive. She could be giving a speech about humanitarian aid and it would still pass off as phone sex material.
    • Throne pilot Nena Trinity has a lot going for her, too. Red hair? Freckles? Big boobs? Shorts with thigh-high boots? Stomach-baring Sensual Spandex in season one, and a Chinese-style outfit in season two? Mixes cute mannerisms with a big dollop of crazy? It's not hard to see how she got to be popular in Japan, in spite of what Western fandom thinks of her.
    • Speaking of Evil Redheads... One of the reasons why Ali Al Saachez is the local Draco In Leather Pants is because he's one of the most skilled pilots in the series. The other, well, is how sexy the man is with his facial hair, his deep voice, his rather hot body, his revealing outfits and how he can pull off the Good Looking Privates looks if needed...
    • And 00P/00F is also quite compensating, instead of Ho Yay Fetish fuel, Hanayo is a lolicon innovator with a Split Personality whom is definitely a girl. Chall Acustica is hot as both as a young girl and in her adult version even despite being scarred. Thank you Uon Taraku!
    • And who could forget Feldt Grace? Big Boobed, wears tight clothing with Too Many Belts and tigh-high boots in season 1.. And she was 14 at that time!. In season 2, Shes All Grown Up and the final OP animation shows her naked. She isn't an Ensemble Darkhorse for nothing!
  • Major Motoko Kusanagi in Ghost In The Shell. Attractive, powerful, competent military woman. Who's a cyborg. One scene actually had her having sex with two other women in cyberspace. The canon handwaves this as male/female brainsex being impossible due to differing, um, firmware, but Shirow Masamune later admitted he didn't want to draw a dude's butt. At the end of the first movie, she merges with an AI and they're both put in a child cyborg body. There's also a scene in the series where she fires an anti-tank weapon. One-handed, because one of her arms has been shot off. And in the movie, she runs around naked for "Optic camouflage" purposes. Said camo renders her mostly invisible. And the scene in the series with her wielding a minigun. The Major is pretty much Ms Fanservice.
    • Let's not forget the franchise's penchant for showing people with cables plugged into them, especially in the neck area. In particular, the scene in episode 16 of 2nd GIG where the Major direct links with Prime Minister Kayabuki hit this troper's cable, neck, and yuri fetishes all at once, and she has never been able to watch it since without blushing.
      • Something about the way Kayabuki pauses before plugging in the connector makes it an oddly intimate moment. Add that to the look Kayabuki gives Kusanagi when they first meet, and Aramaki's line several episodes later about the Major performing her own "independent investigation" of the PM's character. . . .
    • It helps the Fetish Fuel quotient a lot that Mary Elizabeth Mc Glynn is a mistress of Audio Erotica. Normally, Kusanagi is The Stoic, which is one kind of Fuel, but it also has the effect of making any emotional displays a whole 'nother kind of Fuel. Besides the aforementioned Unstoppable Rage with the anti-tank gun (hearing the Major's enraged "Hey Saito! Fork over that weapon NOW! was shiver-inducing), there's Sad!Matoko from episode 2-22. The nail biting and uncertain tone were oddly endearing, for some reason.
  • Haunted Junction contains quite a bit of Fetish Fuel - from the main female character having a romantic obsession with boys (and haunted statues) under 12 years of age, seriously sexy ghosts who live in the toilet of all places, the Headmaster that likes to make appearances out of the various bodily orfices of the main male lead... and I'm not sure how to describe the sort of things that come to mind for the guy who has a tendency to get possessed by the spirits of animals (and then often mostly stripped and put on a leash). Oh, there's a good old fashioned Gender Bender in Episode 2 when the same guy gets posessed by the spirit of a dead girl whose last wish is to 'spend the night' with her boyfriend. And a female ghost who can turn people into masochistic slaves by punching them.
  • Dio from Last Exile. Between Dio's fairly gender-neutral voice, lack of definite physical features either way, and his playfully-affectionate behavior towards, well, pretty much everyone, this troper didn't know which sex he was for much of the series but found him attractive nonetheless, giving this troper a strong attraction to androgyny.
  • I direct everyone to Macross Frontier. Let's see... Sheryl is Stripperiffic whenever she's on stage, Ranka's Moe to the point of diabetes, but Klan Klein takes the cake. Loli to the point of lampshading in her smaller form, and a gorgeous giantess in her Zentraedi state. Squee. And for the ladies, there's Alto Saotome, who once was a Kabuki actor and had to crossdress for a living...
    • You forgot the ever-so-spoilery icing on the cake: everyone who forwent picking sides on the Love Triangle and took the threesome option instead? Word Of God is on your side!
    • There's also the Lady's Man Mikhail, the legal Shouta Luca and then there's GARby the most Hot Blooded Ho Yay in the history of anime, he makes this troper question his sexuality.
      • Macross Frontier is powered by Fetish Fuel. About the only characters this troper has a hard time imagining pulling someone's trigger are Leon Mishima and Howard Glass (and that's not because there isn't someone who gets turned on by them, it's because I don't wanna think about it.)
  • Howl is already a Bishonen to begin with, but he gets a rather dramatic Covered In Gunge scene... while completely nude. If the sight of naked Howl covered head-to-toe in green slime didn't turnsomebody on, this troper will eat her socks.
    • He's not just Covered In Gunge, he creates gunge. A lot of it. Howl being semi-birdlike, with the feathers, was definitely uber-hot. Sophie's state in general (old lady by day, cute girl in bed— I mean, at night— I mean, when she sleeps—) is pretty fuelerrific.
    • Regarding the semi-birdlike Howl: this troper was watching the movie with some of her queer friends, and one of the gay boys became visibly flustered at Howl in that chair and moaning as he turns back into a human...hoo boy.
    • As mentioned earlier, he also has got amazing hands. This troper tends to put on the DVD just to watch him smoothly break an egg, throw it in the pan and feed the shells to Calcifer... one-handed. And then do it again.
  • Science Ninja Team Gatchaman: Obvious example, Jun's miniskirted high-kicks and backflips combined with her long boots. Not-so-obvious example: The male birdstyles don't leave a lot to the imagination. (Discounting Jinpei of course, unless you're into that...)
  • Mahoro, the Pettanko Robot Girl with a costume for everyone: Powered Armor, miko, yukata, schoolgirl, & swimwear, in additional to her normal maid getup.
    • You can not forget about Minawa, the apologetic Little Sister Dojikko who is also The Mole, honestly every time this troper heard her apologize he felt a certain shame that began in his cheeks.
  • This troper would like to cough surreptitiously and call Nora to the attention of autoerotic-asphyxiationists everywhere. It's a celebration, bitches; enjoy yourself.
    • You forgot that the basic plot has fuel for furry, yaoi and bondage types.
  • Rumors are that the Ecchi Ultraman Parody Ultimate Girls was made with a particular group called Macrophiles in mind. As the name implies, they have a thing for giant girls/women.
  • Vash the Stampede gave this troper her well-cherished "innocent-looking-but-deadly" fetish. Just something about all that power hiding in plain sight twists her internal snakes in a lovely way.
    • Or if you're into stitches and huge scars that seem completely improbable and shocking, then Vash would do quite nicely.
      • ...huh. So that's where that came from. Thank you, you've rendered unto me a great service.
    • Vash the Stampede does it for this troper. Just... The cute factor of his English voice and his energetic, happy-go-lucky personality, yet can become badass when he needs to. He's just utterly adorable and moe. He's just so god damn cuuuuuuuuute, I want to take him home, and he's sexy as well. Not to mention the cool sunglasses. And he's such a sweetiepie. I just want to take care of him.
    • Vash alerted this troper to her break the cutie fetish. Something about things gradually getting worse and worse for him until it approaches "everyone I love dies" levels...good heavens. And this troper doesn't even LIKE boys...
    • I learned that I love woobie-ish guys thanks to him. And the voice. God the voice. Thank you, Johnny Yong Bosh. Thank you.
  • Pretty much the entire Pararakelse arc of Love Hina. The leaf bikinis obviously take the cake, but the torn outfit Naru arrived in was pretty hot, too.
    • But back to the leaf bikinis — that Clothing Damage was awfully doable...
    • Motoko, unwinding her Sarashi: "They've gotten bigger again." Oh dear lord, you hit my breast growth kink. And in the "where are they now" epilogue, we see - Holy shinto! - she was also developing asuperlative behind.
    • In the manga, Kanako is master of bondage and she uses said skills, including to win a fight with Motoko.
  • Vassalord is basically an entire manga devoted to this trope.
  • The Manga Franken Fran caused this troper to realize he had a 'patchwork girl' kink. Hush, you.
    • Considering that Franken Fran is more commonly touted on Gurochan for the grotesque dismemberments, nigh-eldritch body remodeling, horrific surgeries, and other miscellaneous freakshow exhibits, you're likely in the clear, dear.
  • The shower scene between Khi and Rubi in Dear S. This troper has always had a thing for older, assertive woman and submissive younger men. She found it unbelievably hot and oddly sweet.
  • This troper looked up Toradora just because of the scene at the end of episode 9.
    • For this Troper it was the reverse—while watching episode 9 he had to check the Fetish Fuel page, determined to mention Taiga's footwork on Ryuu's head, back...etc.
    • You mean the beginning, right?
      • Not if (s)he has a thing for Taiga's feet, which get prominently displayed at regular intervals — episode 19 is epic in that regard.
      • Thanks for that recommendation.
    • Let's not forget Tsundere and Lolita fetishes.
    • Kushieda has to be a fetish for someone!
  • For girls-with-guns fetishists, one could definitely do a lot worse than Black Lagoon.
    • This Troper couldn't have been the only one to find the scene where Balalaika presses Rock against a car while holding a gun to his head to be strangely erotic.
      • More specifically, she pins him to a car, hold a gun to his head, and laughs maniacally while telling Rock that he has to "amuse" her if he wants to live. All while his semi-girlfriend Revy is forced to watch, powerless to do anything but beg Balalaika to stop.
      • The next scene with Rock and Balalaika together is the kicker: so impressed is she by Rock's suggestion to finish the Yakuza council, despite his altruistic motive of ending Yukio's Bonnie-Clyde mishaps with Genji in the name self-preservation, it's heavily implied that Balalaika kisses Rock! Is it just me or is magnificent bastardity a mean fetish for her?
    • Heck, Balalaika in general. She's absolutely hot even with all the scars. Heck, some people might consider those scars an added bonus.
    • The Cat Fight between Revy and Roberta at the end of the "Rasta Blasta" arc may be an aversion of the trope in many respects, but the sheer Determinator-ness of both women (they slug it out for hours without either of them giving quarter) has got to be a turn-on for someone, if only because of what that might mean in the bedroom.
    • And this troper found Roberta quite hot without the maid outfit in that one flashback from "El Baile De La Muerte." Of course, those with a maid-fetish might prefer her (and Fabiola) in their outfits.
      • This troper is sure someone liked Roberta's Spanish accent in the dub.
    • Revy working out, complete with a shot of her barefeet and ending with her in the shower. Link here
    • The random Omake where everyone was aged down: Cheerleader. Eda.
    • Bits and pieces of Calm Down, Two Men provide an... interesting insight into the personalities and histories of the cast of Black Lagoon. Highlights include Balalaika flipping through porn channels with a bored look on her face while Rock and Revy are in the room (and Revy commenting on it) and Revy refusing to work at a strip joint again, even if it involves whipping. And for the ladies, there's Rock reprising his role as a Magnificent bastard for the first real time since the first chapter and standing up to Revy and showed off some serious romantic Determinator credentials, culminating in a cigarette kiss.
  • Revolutionary Girl Utena hit this troper's incest fetish hard. Three sets of incentuous siblings, and one of them actually slept together. Awesome.
    • What about the number of girls in tight, pseudo-military uniforms? With Aguillettes no less!
  • Princess Tutu gives us Mytho and Fakir, who, apart from all their Ho Yay, provide separate TREASURE TROVES of fetish fuel. First, Mytho. He's pale, slender, and golden-eyed. He has several scenes where he goes about in nothing but an oversized white shirt. He's the show's Distressed Damsel and is constantly in vulnerable states, AND his lack of a heart makes him susceptible to a certain degree of brainwashing, I.E. you tell him to say he loves you and he will. A lot of people could have fun with that. In the second season he becomes evil, and his costume switch comes with shoulder pads and a skirt. He starts chasing down pure-hearted girls to sacrifice, during which he heavily lays on the Evil Is Sexy approach, and even amps up the Ho Yay / Foe Yay between himself and Fakir by hugging him in the middle of a crowded hallway, causing one ecstatic fangirl to pass out. He slowly becomes abusive and delightfully morbid as he descends further into Brainwashed And Crazy, asking his 'princess' to gouge out his heart with a knife and kiss it as a romantic suggestion, and then eventually turns into a giant crow. Wow.
    • Then, there's Fakir. He's Tall Dark And Snarky with a Slipknot Ponytail, and a giant scar on his chest. He constantly bosses Mytho around, locking him up, controlling what books he can read, and acts like a jealous boyfriend when Princess Tutu hits the scene. Throw in all of the scenes where he's caressing Mytho's face and hair, pinning him up against walls, and laying on some light physical abuse, and you probably had even the viewers who hated his guts suffering nosebleeds. After he becomes a good guy, the first season finale has him soaking wet and out of breath as he slooooowly stands up before Mytho to cleave his sword in half, and he later has a scene where he's naked while learning how to rewrite reality. You could probably take the fact that he hangs out with a little girl who turns into a duck different ways, too.
  • Lord, Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro. Quite a bit of it is on purpose, though. Namely Neuro's sadistic tendencies of putting Yako into bondage and using her as a chair. Or how he tends to beat her up. Also, just the fact that he's a Voluntary Shapeshifter with a Nightmare Fuel true form might be rather arousing. Oh, and he can transform his hands and hair into Naughty Tentacles. You know what? Neuro pretty much is the embodiment of Fetish Fuel.
    • Perhaps because of this persona of being utterly dominant, combined with being nigh-invulnerable physically, scenes where Neuro is weakened seem especially...er, popular among the fans. A popular Deviant Art artmeme even specifically requests that the person filling it out draw a bloodied Neuro. This troper can certainly relate—weak Neuro rubs her hurt/comfort tendencies and her bloodplay tendencies in all the right places, and the idea of someone that could (and would) ordinarily mess your shit up on a hellish scale being totally helpless suggests some delicious possibilities.
    • In the manga, there's a character with the very specific fetish of using women for furniture, especially chairs. It's played for laughs, but along with the aforementioned examples of Neuro sitting on Yako or Godai, you get the idea that the mangaka has...fantasies.
    • One volume of the manga even went so far as to include this game. In fact, the whole series is an S&M heaven...
  • Black Cat has lots of possibilities for different fetishes. In one arc, Train gets transformed into an adorable child temporarily, and is even forced to wear a skirt, so if you're into that kind of thing... also, nanomachines have unlimited possibilities, including transforming anyone into anything.
    • Also, there's the Sadomasochistic relationship between Train and Creed, with Creed sounding like he gets an orgasm when Train defeats him, and even begging (in a very perverted way) for Train to shoot him in the head, because that way they'll be "bonded forever." Also, the fact that Creed can recover immediately from any wound coupled with how he seems to really enjoy getting hurt by Train can certainly be a turn on for some. Oh, and that's not even mentioning how Creed is shown wearing open-chested black leather clothes most of the time, and when he's not, it's probably because he's naked.
    • This troper would like to add that Train acts (and slightly resembles) a cat. This troper used to be a little dubious about catgirls, but now... she kinda sees their point.
      • This troper feels the need to mention, while on that subject, one particular scene in the anime that seems to completely cater to that fetish. Where Eve goes to Train's room (while he's lazily lying on a bed watching TV) and takes out a bell collar for a cat (the same one he's later shown wearing all the time). She proceeds to call him a "naughty kitty" that needs to be restrained with a collar, and orders him to put it on. He regards her with skepticism and thinks she's crazy, proceeding to ignore her. And then, she gets on top of him and starts trying to forcibly put it on him, while he's struggling to stop her. The whole thing just looked like Eve was trying to dominate him to fulfill her secret catboy fetish or something.
  • In D.Gray-man, there's Tyki's ability to allow any body part of his to penetrate go through anything with ease. And he's called the Noah of Pleasure. Oh, the possibilities.
    • Then there's Road. Just... Road.
    • And for the fans that wanted to know what a blushing, panting and sweating Allen would look like, the manga gives us this opportunity to know.
    • Ahem. This troper would like to point out that Krory could be either dominant or submissive, whichever you prefer. Sounds pretty dang fetishy to me.
    • Lenalee Lee has a lot to offer in this whether it be her Dark and Troubled Past, her Long Legs, or her Cheery face, though since the series fanbase has a serious case of Hetis EW this is definitely a situation where Your Mileage May Vary.
    • Seriously? No mention of Yu Kanda yet? Long-haired pretty boy, beautifully antisocial jerkass to the point of appearing borderline sadistic, generous amounts of Foe Yay with Allen, has a strong tendency to lose his shirt in fight scenes... oh God.
      • The whole deal with Kanda and Alma Karma caters to yaoi fangirls. Not coincidentally, a good 90 percent of D. Gray-Man's fanbase is this.
      • I'm sure someone thought the High Octane Nightmare Fuel in Kanda's backstory was hot... and I'm also sure that someone was me.
  • The ladies from Fairy Tail are all good for fetishes, but Lucy tops all. This troper is trying to recall an arc where she isn't either stripped, tied up, or gagged. Her first appearance even has her being kidnapped to be sold as a sex slave!
    • And the fact that one of her summons is a Meido who insists on calling her 'princess' and repeatedly requests to be punished by her...
    • Some of the guys aren't exactly slouches in the Fetish Fuel department either- take Gajeel, for instance. Piercings pretty much everywhere we can see, suggesting some in places we can't, the bondage capabilities of his power over metal which have been displayed in story... he's pretty damn sadistic, too, and so... so very rugged... 'scuse me for a moment.
    • Erza has so many outfits.
    • No mention of Grey's tendency to subconsciously strip either to his underwear or completely naked at random intervals? 'Cause I think that counts.
  • Generally speaking, this troper managed to get through about 75 chapters of Claymore without much in the way of fantasies. Then Agatha had to go and screw that up by mentioning that, flesh-eating abomination or no, she still has the same needs any other woman (and asks a particularly attractive human soldier if he'd like one chance for sex before she killed her, just to cement the fact). Cue instant flood of Power Perversion Potential.
    • And from the same arc we have Galatea who was last seen running around on the rooftops of Rabona in a ripped up nun habit and swinging a sword around. As a result, this troper finally understands why some people have nun fetishes.
  • In G Gundam, the trace suits cling to the contours of every fighter, regardless of gender. This means we get to see Domon Kasshu's abs of steel, as well as Rain Mikamura's buns of steel.
  • Zoids Genesis is quite well known for fetish fuel of the Zoids series in terms of fanservice.
  • Eureka Seven: Admit it, the thought of having your already insanely beautiful alien girlfriend sprout wings is kinda hot.
  • And, if you're into winged boys instead, Studio BONES still has you covered with Xam'd, where Akiyuki's hiruko symbiosis eventually leads to him developing big, pretty energy wings.
  • The Cat Returns: Okay, someone had to have been turned on by the fact that the heroine spends almost the entire third act as a Cat Girl (and in her school uniform, no less!). This troper, meanwhile, got all sorts of squiggy feelings over Baron, especially the Coat Hat Mask ensemble he wears during the king's party. The fact that he's voiced by Cary Elwes in the English dub only makes things worse...
    • Good to know I wasn't the only one swooning over Baron...
    • Call this troper a sicko if you must but there's something appealing about the Cat King and his advisor (Natori; the one with the robe). For the king, I blame the mustache and the voice he's been given. For Natori, the lennon specs and his extreme loyalty like he's always willing to give in to whatever the king asks is exploitable. The thing they both have which this troper really likes? They're both old.
    • Muta is your answer if you have a thing for Fat Cats.
  • The manga School Mermaid has the titular mermaids looking just like high school girls in swimsuits. They always smile, and are mute save for some screeching noises. The real kicker? They are invisible to normals and swim around the walls and floors of the school at night. Then the goal is to kill one and eat its flesh to get your crush to love you, which has to be somebodys turn on. It is unknown if males of the species could ever see them, let alone be subject to the rather interesting rules of their game, but any lesbian or bi contestants would have the time of their lives! Just imagine the Power Perversion Potential that could occur if one ate a mermaid with the target of affection being another mermaid.
  • In Basilisk, we've got two kunoichi whose techniques have to do with blood: Okoi, who sucks the blood of her enemies through skin contact and Akeginu, who uses her blood to blind her enemies, which,of course only works when she's topless and the blood is running down her skin. People who have a vampire fetish should like that (* coughs* ).
  • Fushigi Yuugi: Nakago chains Tamahome up and tortures him, kisses him, and licks his face. This obsession is canon.
    • It hits the same kink when brainwashed Tamahome briefly chokes Tasuki with a chain. What? What?
    • Tomo binding up a bare-chested Tamahome (with imaginary vines, mind you), at which point Tamahome is whipped and tickled really slowly. But the icing on the cake is when Tomo, believing he had succeeded in killing Tamahome, tells Miaka, "The boy's screams excited me much more."
  • Kiddy Grade: Eclaire hits a ton of Fetish Fuel points. Let's see...she's a happy, excitable, well-endowed Action Girl with Super Strength and Super Speed, whose acrobatic combat style lends itself topanty shots and Gainaxing. She can also look very elegant in a fashionable dress, and in one episode she goes undercover, dressing as a Cat Girl. She's got plenty of Les Yay with her partner, butthere's no indication she dislikes men... What's more, Eclaire is only the tip of the iceberg as far as this show is concerned.
  • Keroro Gunsou, known by its direct translation of Sergeant Frog in the English-speaking world, gives multiple shout-outs to this trope. The bumbling Anti Hero and his platoon members are often beaten up by the rather cruel (and, er, well-endowed) Natsumi Hinata, and Corporal Giroro even seems to possess something of a domination fetish himself, as he's secretly infaturated with her. (It should be mentioned that Giroro himself is also normally the most naturally violent and angry member of the platoon.) By contrast, the mother loves them, and and a famous scene has her actually snuggling Sgt. Keroro between her (also very large) breasts. Perhaps most disturbingly is Angol Moa's occasional use as a loophole to make sex jokes without seeming outright pedophiliac (heck, her name is frequently used in puns on "moe"). Because she's a member of an alien species, she's technically millenia old, but she is still a child by her own race's standards, and she still looks exactly like a human girl. It thus is a little disturbing when she acts "adult."
    • It should also be noted that many of the times Natsumi beats up on the Keronians, she squashes them under her feet (given that humans are much taller than Keronians, it's fairly easy), so there's also foot fetishism.
    • How are we forgeting the sence where Tamama rubs a pink balloon?! And his crush on Keroro? And how can we ever forget this gem?
      • Similar to the balloon innuendo is Giroro's common way of coping with stress out of his crush on Natsumi—polishing his gun collection. It doesn't take much to figure out what that could mean.
      • Oh God I didn't even consider that.
      • And of course the LOADS of Transformation Rays and gadets that this serise has to offer. For you people that are into age manipulation theres the "Life Your Life Over Agian" gun. If you have a thing for girls in lion-cloth skirts and bras, theres the Oni gun, and the flash spoon for macrophiliacs. And, if you like military men, the frogs themsevles fall into this trope. There is really something for just about EVERYONES taste in this anime/manga.
      • Particularly Interspecies Romance - this troper is a huge Giroro-Natsumi shipper.
  • The main character in Change 123 has multiple personalities, which change her appearance. When the childlike Mikiri comes out, her breasts grow to the point that they snap any bra she's wearing. And she's a grappling Judo master. Be right back — got to go check a certain chapter... or three.
  • Horo the Wise.
    • This gets even more appealing when you realize that, just like any immortal character, Horo could be very "experienced," If You Know What I Mean.
      • She outright teases Lawrence with the possibility that she's had many lovers.
  • How is Loveless not mentioned here yet? Especially considering another work by Yun Kouga was brought up. Anyway, Loveless has massive shota potential, loli potential, recurring themes of bondage and domination, and schoolgirl lesbians, not to mention the whole "you have cat ears and a tail until you lose your virginity" thing. It's bound to hit on someone's fetish.
  • Being a series about the globe-trotting adventures of a Kaitou Loveable Sex Maniac, Lupin III contains this from time to time. The manga has had rape, torture (one by Lupin getting his partner close to orgasm then quitting), vampires, and robot girls (which had a S&M function!)
    • The anime has plenty of shirtless scenes for Goemon, and Zenigata's reliance on handcuffs has attracted the attention of a few fangirls. And let's not forget Fujiko's disguise in Cagliostro andHarimao in which she wore wore glasses.
    • This troper is under the firm suspicion that Jigen is the primary source of her "sharp-dressed man" fetish.
    • As this troper has said previously on the Estrogen Brigade Bait page, there has to be an explanation for why every episode with an underwater component includes Goemon in fundoshi.
  • And what about 9-lives? yes, it's a fairly new manga, but there's KITTY-BOYS and -GIRLS.
  • Blue Submarine No 6 is loaded with this - for starters there are skintight suits on a barely legal tomboy, a bunch of mutants that are basically either furries or cute monster girls, attempted rape between two of those mutants, a full frontal nude of one such mutant, a transformation (though not really onscreen), hurt and comfort,.....
  • Demashita Powerpuff Girls Z surprisingly has some in the first freaking episode! Blossom/Momoko is strapped down to a bed. For the most part the fetish fuel is the girls being tied up with a lot of things ranging from Sedusa's hair to Mummy Wraps(and I won't even go into what else those things can be used for...). Plus in one episode Miyako/Bubbles is bound and gagged although it wasn't really Miyako/Bubbles. It was Sedusa in disguise.
  • With the exception of Devilman (which has some Fetish Fuel scenes as well as some Nightmare Fuel) and Violence Jack (tankloads of Nausea Fuel), pretty much anything by Go Nagai, including:
    • Cutey Honey: The title character is a stacked-to-high-heaven Robot Girl who can change into different outfits (usually three per episode), with the appropriate skills, and fights villainesses who also each transform into monstrous(-ly hot) forms at the end of the episode, adding furry to the mix. Honey's transformations include:
      • Dominatrix: She calls it an S & M Queen form.
      • Motorcycle Racer: (A Speed Racer parody. In fact, the whole series is a parody of both Magical Girl and Shonen Ai.
      • Catsuit-wearing Ninja/Thief
      • Knight in Skimpy Shining Armor
      • Nurse
      • Soldier in tank top and fatigues
    • Kekko Kamen: The main character wears a costume pretty much consisting of goggles, panties over her head as a mask (the title translates as "Panty Mask"), gloves, boots, and, IIRC, a scarf (and that's it). And then things get weird.
  • An equally apt title for Deadman Wonderland would be "Bloodplay Playground". It's a troupe of gorgeous serial killers using their own blood as a weapon, for God's sake. There's also plenty of dismemberment and deadly mayhem for the more hardcore set, plus the potential for control fantasies with the medicine they have to take every three days to keep from dying.
    • And then there's the S&M-esque Ho Yay / Foe Yay relationship between Genkaku and Nagi. Heck, Genkaku was locked alone in a small room for how long with a bound and drugged Nagi? Even his own soldiers were lampshading this, wondering what the heck Genkaku was doing to him for so long. And then there's how Genkaku was shown to get really turned on when he watched Nagi kill some poor mook. Or how Genkaku licked the blood from Nagi's severed arm. The whole thing was just pure, unadultered Fetish Fuel.
    • This troper finds Minatsuki absolutely drop dead sexy. Yandere? check. Piercings? check. Hair decs? check. Absolutely sadistic to the point of finding sexual pleasure in killing? Check, check, and check. Plus in the opening we get some rather nice gainaxing.
    • Mockingbird, my god, Mockingbird. As soon as he's introduced to the main male characters, the Ho Yay vibes and Fetish Fuel just skyrocket. Apparently, he's a Bishonen Depraved Homosexual(possibly made that way as a replacement for Genkaku, the previous Bishonen Depraved Homosexual and Ho Yay generator, who was killed off). Just look at his interactions with Senji - glomping and groping him, and licking the blood from his arm... yikes. And then he comes on to Ganta, as well.
    • This female troper finds Yoh to be incredibly sexy, inside and out. That hair, his (English and Japanese dub) voice, his overall snarky, sketchy, and cocky attitude. A kleptomaniac. That prison jumpsuit is disturbingly flattering on him. And, he cares about his psychopathic, sadomasochistic sister, even while she's actively trying to kill him and Ganta. And the fact that he also got himself arrested so he could buy Minatsuki time off of her sentence? Oh, and he gets injured. A LOT. That boy just destroys my hurt/comfort buttons. He even manages to get in a few slasher smiles that are insanely hot.
    • Shiro has this in spades. She goes around wearing a skin tight outfit which covers a load of scars all along her body.
      • Hell, most of the time she looks like she's naked with a collar- it's pretty clear she's not wearing anything under it . And the design of the outfit really doesn't help.
  • Somebody want to tell me how we got this far without mention of Ouran High School Host Club? Yes, this troper recognizes that the whole point of the series is to make fun of stereotypical shoujo manga where you see this kind of stuff, but come on! The whole series is a (remarkably pink) Blue Bishonen Ghetto comprised of Kyouya, the glasses-wearing, all-powerful Pale Skinned Brunette, Tamaki, the purple-eyed, French-speaking genuinely nice boy, the Hitachiin twins, who manage to be just as appealing on their own, Honey, the Cute Shotaro Boy (who could kick your ass to Mars) with a very close relationship to his tall, dark, handsome, and stoic cousin, Mori, and the resident Bifauxnen, Haruhi.
    • Even outside the Host Club, we have Kasanoda, who will do more than enough for anyone's "tough on the outside, woobie on the inside" fix, and the even more Pale Skinned Brunette (only not really), occult-obsessed, constantly-surrounded-by-black-roses Nekozawa.
  • Mirai Nikki brings us the wonderful Yuno Gasai, a Yandere who regularly stalks Yukiteru and has a special diary that tracks everything Yukiteru does, even when he's not within range of her. It certainly helps that for someone that Yukiteru finds creepy, she looks very cute.
  • ...Nobody at all likes anything from Ah My Goddess? You've got a group of nigh-omnipotent, and apparently beautiful without exception, beings living in heaven whose purpose in life is to make a particular human happy. There are also the angels, of course, who (at least, if the first trial between Belldandy and Peorth is anything to go by) share sensations with their goddesses. In a threesome, you'd literally be pleasuring both of them at once every time you did something.
  • The title character of Birdy The Mighty. Admittingly, the entire series premise (sharing a body with a boy) and Birdy turning out to be a bioengineered Super Soldier in the Decode series should be a turn off, but this troper find something about a pink and white-haired, hot-headed, beautiful humaniod alien space cop in a very revealing outfit who can kick a lot of ass to be a turn on, especially the OVA version, but has no problem with the Decode version, too.
  • It is bad and wrong and massively YMMV, but... the title character of Monster. Yes, he totally lives up to it, but: inhumanly beautiful, preternaturally charismatic, blond-haired, eerily calm, gender-bendingManipulative Bastard with a creepy fixation on his sister, and a weirdly homoerotic obsession with Mind Raping the protagonist. He hits pretty much every dark and twisted power-play kink you could ask for.
    • And then there's the scene where 'Anna' is revealed to be Johan in disguise - Johan staring straight at the camera with a Psychotic Smirk is somehow really creepy and hot in a very wrong way, at the same time (as well as the other feelings it evokes). From the good guys, we have the main character, a gentle Iron Woobie...
    • Johan and Roberto. Look, shut up, okay? This troper was never into that before...
  • Genshiken basically introduced this troper to the Tsundere as a concrete character type, via Ogiue. He normally hates the tsundere personality, but now it gets a pass if matched up with short, flat-chested, talented women. Also, Ohno and sexy cosplay. And... You know what, just a lot of the cast and show, for various reasons mostly related to their obsession with sex and porn; much of the male-character fetish fuel is sparked by Ogiue's extensive homoerotic fantasies (which take up half an episode of the second season) and Sasahara's intriguing response to learning the role he plays in them.
  • Mysterious Girlfriend X has more than enough fetishes to go round. Spit/drool play is the most obvious, but there's also garter belts, panty shots, Mindlink Mates... and that's just in Urabe. However, themost hot-yet-wrong character is her friend Oka - a very short (4 ft. 8 inches), very busty Meganekko who was once lifted up like a little girl by her boyfriend for a kiss. And she's got a dirty mind. What does this say about my preferences? Nothing good.
    • This Troper feels your pain, brother.
  • A whole page with lots and lots of examples of anime Fetish Fuel, and still nobody has mentioned Rozen Maiden? A lot of people who watched this found dolljoints to be strangely arousing after the tenth episode of the first season.
    • ...guilty. This troper tries not to think about it because the generally child-like appearance of the dolls is a personal Fetish Retardant, so he just ends up feeling horribly confused and uncomfortable when he considers it.
    • Suigintou looks old enough, actually. Not legal, by any means, but when she's in scenes alone with an upward facing shot...she looks fifteen, at least.
      • Your Mileage May Vary, but this troper finds several of the dolls to look old enough for him not to be unappealed by it, excluding only the youngest-looking ones like Hinaichigo and Kanaria. For instance, Suiseiseki and Souseiseki both appear at least in their teens. This troper is not a fan of lolicon at all, but he still manages to get aroused by many of the dolls. May be partially due to differing styles between artists depicting the dolls in different age ranges, however.
  • How about Hell Girl? It has some... rather interesting moments. (Please expand)
    • Hone Onna in her human form. Pretty hot for a skeleton woman.
    • Ichimoku Ren for the girls!
    • Yuzuki Mikage givin birth to Enma Ai in Mitsuganae. Said process involves Yuzuki getting stripped naked as a chrysalis forms out of her back. Said girl's scream added to the "turn-on" factor.
  • Legendz has some, particularly for people into BDSM. There's Ranshiin's bondage (if you're into dragons), and also Halca-sensei evil temptress version.
  • Super Dreadnought Girl 4946: The titular heroine is an average 50-meter-tall 15-year-old girl. Stuff like the protagonist getting buried between her breasts or accidentally getting between her legs is rather discreet... and then she swallows him whole to power up. And licks her lips afterwards.
  • While it has nothing whatsoever to do with the actual series, the first ending of Needless is pretty much an exercise in "how many fetishes can we cram into a 1-and-a-half minute segment?" This troper is pretty sure that Random Curiosity or some other anime blog actually did a run-down of the ED, screencapping each bit and pointing out which fetish it's catering to.
  • Baccano has Nice Holystone, who is really into explosions.
    • This troper finds Ennis's suit of all things incredibly sexy.
    • In all honesty, ALL the suits are incredibly sexy. The copious amounts of blood and insanity can also cater to some peoples' interests...
    • Miria, a genki girl with an enthusiasm for cosplay.
    • The boys of Baccano cater to just about everyone:
      • Firo: Nice smile, nice hat, nice lazy sounding Brooklyn accent small and cute (but doesn't like being called that) and quite tough when provoked.
      • Isaac: Shares a brain with Miria, likes cosplay as much as she does and is hilariously hot blooded.
      • Ladd Russo: A murderous psychopath in a nice looking white suit who loves killing. His girlfriend, Lua qualifies too, being a soft spoken masochist.
      • Graham Spector: Talkative, hyper, has a fetish for breaking/taking things apart, is probably gay/bisexual and seems to have a crush on either Ladd or his "little friend" Shaft, has a really cute (slasher) smile, wields a giant monkey wrench, and wears coveralls.
      • Claire Stanfield: Is a psychopath, but a psychopath with a code of honor, has red hair, pulls a lot of slasher smiles and spends a lot of time covered in blood.
      • Czeslaw: A shota who never ages and takes a lot of punishment.
      • Huey Laforet: A French mad scientist who manipulates people flawlessly and is a bishonen to the point that his best friend mistakes a woman for him.
      • Elmer C. Albatross: Cute, hyper, likes to make people smile, is covered in scars, and has very pretty eyes (in the rare events that he opens them).
      • Jacuzzi Splot: VERY cute, adorably vulnerable, a crybaby and a coward but with a hidden core of purest epicness, and a tattoo on his face. Actually, come to think of it, Jacuzzi is as much of a Fetish Fuel Station Attendant as his girlfriend Nice up there.
  • Clannad - I'm surprised no one has ever mentioned Kyou Fujibayashi. Hello? Zettai Ryouiki almost always, hot tsundere girl, do I need to ask more? And the normal uniform of the girls has a mini skirt and the physical education uniform has a mini but mini pants and she still uses those long socks. Especially this particular scene. Also, her sister Ryou sometimes uses Zettai Ryouiki.
  • Do you like your girls self-assured and BIGGER? Step right up! The World God Only Knows has you covered! ... What's that? You go for the other end of the scale? 'Course we got them! Invisible girls, you say? We got those too! Hell, we got every damn type you could think of!
  • Okay, Ai Kora may be about a fetishist and his harem, but it delivers the Fetish Fuel regardless. In this troper's case, chubby girls/weight-gain. I hate myself for it, but this chapter and this chapter are kinda hot.
  • Catnapped is a cute, colorful children's movie about taking good care of your pets. It is also a cesspit of potential fetish material. Let's see...
    • First off, and more obviously, it's about cat people. Note one.
    • One of them is also an Action Cat Girl. Note two.
    • It also features humans getting turned into cat people. Note three.
    • One of the characters, a grown cat man, seems to be very strongly attached to little girl Meeko. And Action Girl Chuchu, who seems like she's around 18 or so, definitely seems to have a crush on Meeko's 10-year-old brother. We're not even going to keep numbering them after this.
    • The main villainess can hypotize people.
    • She can also turn them into balloons. Hello, inflationists!
    • Not to mention the More Than Mind Control hold she has over The Dragon.
  • Mononoke features a very pretty main character with cute little fangs and fascinating make-up with a white-haired pretty boy for an alternate self and evidence that they can both exist at the same time. It doesn't hurt that elements of his warddrobe are distinctly feminine, and in the original, lesser-known series he first appeared in, he gets tied up.
  • Tasogare Otome x Amnesia portrays its heroine in an extremely erotic manner from time to time. Take a good look at this picture and see how many fetishes you can recognise — then add the fact that she's a ghost.
  • My Balls may be ecchi, but I certainly didn't expect to come out of it with a thing for Horny Devils. Let's just say this manga really explores their Power Perversion Potential in new and exciting ways. Prehensile tails, man!
    • For this troper, it was the depiction of Baphomet in the same manga. Never had a thing for hermaphrodites, but after seeing this unholy (er...) combination of childlike cuteness (dressed as a schoolgirl, with a bunny backpack whose ears work as wings, hair decs), demonic attributes (horns, tail) and sexual appetites (the fact that s/he has both male and female genitalia and is quite adept in pleasuring him/herself and other people)... and also the way s/he was defeated at the hands of our heroes... Wow. Just wow.
  • Aoyagi Kanna from Koe De Oshigoto is coerced by her sister to do voice-acting for eroge. Nothing too strange, until you see where her training leads her, going up to and including the ability to bring herself to an orgasm by the power of her imagination alone.
    • Koe De Oshigoto is outright fetish porn, if you happen to have thing for shy young women talking dirty.
  • Although Project ARMS is not well known and doesn't have a lot of fetish material, there are still some things that this troper likes. Alice In Wonderland takes a level in badass in Sci-Fi. With the exception of Kei Kuruma, all of the ARMS users' awesome transformations and ARMS forms are absolutely amazing, especially the Jabberwock, White Knight, and March Hare. And when they revert back to normal, they're nearly naked. The entire Keith series are hot and then there's Keith Violet.
  • There is the Dragon Ball & Dragonball Z series. Bulma's (As well as Lunch's, Ran Fan's, Chi-Chi's...) fanservice is only the tip of the iceberg in the series. Maybe people have a tail fetish for the monkey tails the Saiyans have (Or even weirder, Frieza's tail).
    • The villains in general, for some. Especially Frieza and Cell. Most especially Frieza, who is voiced by Nakao Ryusei. AKA Sexy Villainous Voice Incarnate.
    • Transformation with the cloth ripping (except extendable Saiyan Armor) Great Ape form. You had to wonder how many wanted to see a Female Saiyan transform into one.
      • Bardock Special, anyone? Seripa transformed into an Oozaru, & even in normal form, she had, by Saiyan standards, a Stripperific spandex bodysuit. As opposed to most of the guys, who just wear Speedos. Oh, I guess that fetish is covered too...
    • Vore concerning Cell's tail (The way he absorbs the androids of course, the other way with normal humans is just... icky and horrid), and a grand combination of Vore, Transformation, and Goo fetishes is supplied with Buu. And who knows, depending who you are, it gets worse or even better in the strong probability I still haven't covered all the major ones in the series.
    • I would be surprised if someone isn't able to find any Saiyan insanely hot, even (In my case especially) Gohan from the Cell Games Saga.
    • Also, when Majin Vegeta fought Goku, there was some actual bondage involved. Here's some screen caps for you all to droll over: link
  • I'm surprised no one has mentioned This Ugly Yet Beautiful World yet. There's plenty of Lolicon, but this troper is more interested in the fact that the main character can take a monster form to giant monsters.
  • I believe that Princess Princess needs a mention. Let's see, basically the whole plot involves girly-looking men in an all-boys high school who dress up as "Princesses" in Gothic-Loli clothing in order to be fawned over and adored by the general student population. Furthermore, Megumi kisses Mitoko while he's in his girl's clothes and Yuhjiro and Tohru both kiss while dressed as girls. Not to mention Mitoko fantasies about him and his girlfriend Megumi wearing matching girl's clothes.
  • If you have a thigh fetish, Pani Poni Dash! is the show for you.
  • Wolf's Rain has shape-shifting wolves and a plant-girl. It also made this troper realize she has a thing for ponytails.
    • Not to mention all the bishonen and the Ho Yay.
    • Kiba in general. Hot tempered, proud, violent, drop-dead gorgeous Bishonen, whose true form is a beautiful snow white wolf. It also helps that he's voiced by Mamoru Miyano.
  • Ogin from Requiem From The Darkness is pretty much the definition of Fetish Fuel Station Attendant, and that is a very good thing.
  • 07 Ghost. Frau becomes Teito's "master" by touching the slave collar around his neck. Yeeeah.
    • Castor and his dolls.
  • Haru To Natsu has protagonist Makoto caught between twin sisters who both want him, for starters. He prefers Haruna, the stable and sweet model student, while also being chased by Natsuki, who wants him because Haruna wants him. Oh, and did I mention Haruna's quite Yandere for Makoto? To the point that their first kiss is while she's holding a very large butcher knife, and later promises (while wielding that same knife) that if he ever cheats, he wouldn't like what happens. Cue wholly inappropriate squiggly feelings for this submissive troper.
  • All of Nana To Kaoru. Quite apart from the bondage, Nana is a godsend for anyone who loves a curvy, fuller figure. Factor in the bondage and dominance play (which really shows off her magnificent breasts, thighs and hips), and all the times she's turned on and she's sexiness incarnate. Caveat: may cause you to think that bondage is sweet.
  • Kenichi The Mightiest Disciple has boobs. Oh, so much.
  • Yakitate!! Japan, a show about epic!bread, has Pierrot Bolneze, whose skin-tight jester's outfit and amazing acrobatics (never mind the ability to multiply himself into 150 copies) left this troper nothing more than a warm puddle in her spinny chair. For a 21-year-old woman who thought she'd outgrown appreciating anime characters... boy was she wrong. Of course, she accepts that it might just be her...
  • .hack//Legend of the Twilight ... Where to begin? Well, there's the AMAZING amount of non-to-subtle incest subtext. So much that it has been dubbed by fans and critics alike as ".hack//Twincest". This is played mostly for laughs in the manga, and pretty straight in the anime. Then there's Marielle, who is an 8 year-old in a 14 year-old's body. Ouca, who is quite busty and turns into a wolf.
    • This troper finally admitted to himself that he had both an incest and mind-control fetishes after Shugo accidentally charms Rena. He also notes that Shugo seems to enjoy her altered state a little too much.
  • Darker than Black. We have:
    • 1. Man trapped in a cat's body (can go into other animals).
    • 2. Woman who keeps regressing in physical age. Has a habit of wearing white, skin-tight clothing.
    • 3. A stoic lolita.
      • 3-2. Dolls, cute girls and boys who can be "reset", have no memory, no modesty, cannot say no...
    • 4. A main character with, quote, 'beautiful collarbones". Add to that a split personality...
  • Monster caters to people with medical fetishes...like me.
  • Bagi The Monster Of Mighty Nature. Not good anime by modern standards, but furriest anime ever. Pure fetish fuel starting at 2:45.
  • GoDannar is pretty much what you get when the Japanese try and put every known fetish into one show. Schoolgirls, skin-tight/revealing outfits, innuendo, Gag Boobs...there's so much, no wonder that there's no room amongst two seasons for an actual plot and that only ONE character stood out as not annoying.
  • Barajou No Kiss thrives on the Bound And Gagged line of Fetish Fuel with White Haired Pretty Boy Tenjou as its primary Fetish Fuel Station Attendant.
  • How come noone mentioned Crying Freeman yet? Besides the myriads of fanservice, it's a tattoo fetishist's dream come true! And let's not forget about Freeman's supersized bodyguard.
  • Shiki Senri of Vampire Knight can turn his blood into a whip that can slice people. If that's not fetishistic, nothing is.
  • SO disappointed that no one has put in Inuyasha. Let's see.....White Haired Pretty Boy Half Human Hybrid Petting Zoo People in hakama, and that's just the main character. Then we have The StoicWhite Haired Pretty Boy Bishounen pointy-eared, Fluffy-tailed Estrogen Brigade Bait Youkai Sesshomaru, who has a big brother complex/Papa Wolf Syndrome for the little girl in his care. Then there's aShotacon kitsune Shippo who can transform at will...shall I keep going?
  • Ushio And Tora also have a good deal for you teratophiles and xenophiles (guilty as charged >>) - beside the body-modding spear, we've got a nearly Bishounen tiger Youkai with big, strong, smooth hands, claws, stripe, lovely long hair, and cute but strong feet and legs. Not, not to mention, heh, you know, all the other youkai....I'm not obsessed with Tora.
  • Nezumi and Shion of No 6 are just made of Fetish Fuel being bishies with shirtless scenes and tons of angst and Ho Yay between them.
    • Seconded!
    • This troper loves Nezumi's singing voice in the anime.
    • Shion's Yandere side that occasionally comes out in regards to Nezumi may seem scary to some but to this troper and probably many others its very unf worthy.
  • Mairu and Kururi Orihara. Twins? Check. Bisexual? Check. Like to get really, really intimate with each other? Check. Are okay with getting together with the same guy? Freakin' check.
  • I... I'm not the only one who thinks that robot cats playing baseball is hot, right? Right?
    • No, you're not, this troper kinda has a thing for that series too..
    • I think there's one more thing I'm liking... their behi nds . There's actually many, many more of those scattered around the 23 volumes. I'm feeling so sick right now.
    • Not to mention the um...implications of those adorable robot cats. Essentially, they're built to be servants, which can be programed/commanded to do all sorts of stuff for humans. Man, I KNOW I'm destroying people's childhoods... 
  • Yunoki's interactions with Hino in Kiniro No Corda.
  • Cuticle Detective Inaba Is about an anthro wolf with a hair fetish who wears a collar and is put on a leash, sometimes willingly, sometimes not. Both are good. But my fetish is hit with Yuuta there needs to be more sadistic yandere crossdressers, in my opinion
  • Two words. Bare shoulders. Plenty of animé have lots of cool female characters with them,
    • Not just female ones; there are plenty of anime featuring the bare shoulders of sexy guys, which this troper considers to be a big turn on.
  • While there are a lot of Cute Monster Girls in Daily Life with Monster Girl, Suu in particular stands out. She's a Slime Girl who can change her form, starting out with the physique of a small girl, if she absorbs enough water, she grows taller and her breasts and hips expand. She's an Innocent Fanservice Girl (or at least pretends to be one) who is always naked. She can read your thoughts, her "hair" can form tentacles and she can shapeshift into anything. Yes, anything, even objects such as clothes. And if the slimyness turns you off, don't worry, she can solidify herself.
    • Not to mention she cured Kimihito, her "master" by essentially breastfeeding him.
    • And that time she grew to enormous sizes after absorbing an experimental fertilizer.
    • And all that Les Yay between her and the other girls, especially Papi, suggesting she is also bisexual
    • I can't be the only one who has a thing for Monster Musume's Cathyl. She's a female Minotaur, which in this context means she's a huge woman (stated to be 2.31 meters ( 7'7") tall) rippling with muscles and with truly enormous breasts, which are said to be a Q-cup. And before you ask, yes: being part cow, her breasts even have to be milked regularly, preferably by her current lover. And her milk is said to be both delicious and healthy. Also, those muscles aren't just for show either. She's strong enough to easily lift a grown man with a single hand.
  • One scene in Attack On Titan shows Levi telling Hanji what he thinks about her obsession over the idea of researching "abnormal" Titans. He tells her he can see an abnormal Titan, already. Hanji asks where, and he grabs her by the hair, turns her face towards him and says, "Right here." *faints*
  • How about the fanart that shows the Survery Corps with bruises from their 3DMG?
  • Oh god. 3DMG straps period.

Nutcracker of Tokyo Ghoul is beautiful scantily dressed female ghoul who preys on both men and woman. She gives a sloppy kiss to Mutsuki. Some creepy subtext can be read into her crushing men's testicles and then eating them. She also has a vulnerable side to her.

  • There's something incredibly alluring about the art in Tokyo Ghoul. All those gorgeous bishies and bishoujo's surrounded by various states of gore and violence and having multiple periods of angst due to tragic backstories and presents to appeal to your hurt/comfort kink.
  • Several ghouls in addition to Nutcracker mix murderous and amorous intentions, namely Tsukiyama and Rize.
  • Tsukiyama's thing for Kaneki, which involves him wanting to eat him, or where he licks up Kaneki's blood in the anime.
  • Kaneki's sexy backless outfit in the first manga, which word of god says was designed by Tsukiyama.
  • Eto's tendency to wander around naked while committing acts of mayhem and mind rape. Or how she gets weirdly intimate with Kaneki, declaring her love for him and licking his eye. Or later how she daydreams about him while she's in a bath, showing off her legs.

Seraph of The End provides numerous attractive characters with angst, dressed in uniforms, and Ho Yay out the wazoo. Many fangirls are particularly intrigued by how close and protective Yuu and Mika are of each other or those times when Mika carries Yuu in a bridal carry, Ferid acts interested in Yuu and calls him "princess". There's also the time in the manga when Ferid pat Mika's butt.
