Why did everyone with two X chromosomes fall madly in love with Mamoru? Serenity/Usagi loved him for two lifetimes, even breaking a tabboo to be with him, Beryl went crazy when she lost him, Chibiusa had some sort of electra complex and there was someone else too, but I can't find her name. Also Rei in the '90's anime. Like, he wasn't terrible and he was a nice guy, but I'm not sure I'd go crazy and wage a war over him. (Looks accusingly at Beryl. She knows what she did.)

I think Motoki also attracted some girls.

He and Motoki are the only 2 handsome good guys in the series. The other hot guys are mostly villains and they also attracted women.

What troubled me the most is that no dude got a crush on Michiru.

He was tall, handsome, mysterious, intelligent, naturally charming, caring, and "appeared" confident on his road to being a truly successful man. He was very admirable. Traits many men admire and plenty women desire.


Also, Beryl could at one point have been on the road to getting him for herself or maybe she fantasized about getting him way too much and she turned into some psycho. He seemed like the perfect man and when that man chose Princess Usagi, Beryl became pissed. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

Just between you and me, Crytal's Kunzite is 100x better looking than Mamoru.

You could say the same for Usagi. Mamoru, Ail, Prince Diamond and Seiya all had the hots for her.

Rei and Michiru are very beautiful but aren't the most approachable in my opinion.

Actually, all the Senshi are beautiful in their own way but Rei and Michiru both have this mysterious allure about them but are both quite standoffish to me. I love them though and I don't think it was a mere coincidence they were paired together in Nehellania's nightmare realm.

Michiru just seems too perfect, well except that time Kaolinite tossed her off that cliff into the waterfall. To be fair, her slow motion wailing fall was perfect too.

Many men love to pursue such figures.

Just like mysterious and handsome man attracts women, their danger behavior even makes them more charming, Nephrite AKA was a good example.

Let's see the other guys beside Motoki and Mamoru

Both Jadeite and Nephrite has attracted women, even Youma to love them.
Kunzite never showed upon ppl, so it's understandable.
Ali did have a lot of girls coming after his human disguise.
Rebeus, Saphir and Demande all have ppl who loves them. Also notice that they rarely showed themselves upon ordinary ppl.
Tomoe has Kaolinite and Crypine.
That guy in the S movie got Luna and his girlfriend.
Tiger's Eye targets young girls.
Three Lights have a lot of followers, especially Seiya.

So overall good looking guys are very popular among girls.

Yep, even though Diamond wanted to own her in part due his obsession of Neo-Queen Serenity.

I could understand if Michiru was not the most popular one, but I mean, Not a single male character have crush on her, that's a bit hard to understand.

Rei does have a few ppl crush on her. Even Mamoru thought she is a cute girl, just with no strong feeling.

Because he's Naoko's ideal man and is her self-admitted favorite character of the franchise, so of course she'd make him a bit of a Gary Stu. :P

Didn't Seiya try to charm Michiru? I think they both may have been trying to obtain inf or something? I know Michiru is notorious for being seductive/flirty. I can't remember but Seiya seemed to be attracted to her or at least the idea of "helping her undress."

Other than that I honestly can't remember any grown man trying to pursue her.

Mamoru has always been pretty popular though with girls and boys....

signed Ami..lol

Yeah but it was his plan to find info, not being charmed by her.

I know. My first impression of him wasn't dissimilar to that of Usagi's, except it lasted longer. He's a rude jerk at first who softens into a complete dork. I don't care how smart or sophisticated he is. That he would pick at a 14-year old girl over her test score (and I was that age when I first watched the series) completely turned me off the character. I don't care if they were destined or how many times he encouraged her as his alter ego; he's a jerk and still to this day one of my least favorite characters in the franchise.

The only incarnation I sort of liked him in was as the Moonlight Knight, and that's because he was physically separate from the mean part of him.

For the same reasons that men attract women in real life. Good looks, social status (c'mon, Prince Endymion was prince of the entire earth at the time of the Silver Millennium), money and the charming behaviour.
