In the stage show, [[https://derpibooru.org/268269 they actually tell each other they love each other]]. (Apparently, the voice acting makes it a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming anyway despite the UncannyValley nature of the costumes.)

* ''HoYay/VoltronLegendaryDefender



* ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'':
** A few moments, most notably one between Lance and Keith after Lance has woken up from his medically induced coma. Keith is flabbergasted when Lance is still being a JerkAss to him.
--->'''Keith''' We had a bonding moment! I cradled you in my arms!
** Shiro and Keith also have a lot of intense scenes together, which could be interpreted as Keith having a crush on Shiro.
*** The rescue scene from the pilot had a bit more of this as after Keith takes Shiro off the table and has him in his arms, the camera very quizzically lingers on an unconscious Shiro and his briefly visible lips.
*** In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment during the first episode, Shiro changes from his captive outfit into his regular clothes. The only place the group has visited thus far is the house Keith has been staying in, which leaves little options as to just where Shiro got his clothing.
** When Allura is told by the mice that [[spoiler: Pidge is a girl]] she decides to try and get [[spoiler: Pidge to come clean to her.]] Her interactions were probably intended to be friendly and inviting but they also come across as rather flirty.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/LegionOfSuperHeroes'' AnimatedSeries, Brainiac Five is Superman's biggest fan, occasionally taking it to "lovesick puppy" levels. This is a very stark contrast to the usual condescending personality he has with most anyone else. This is due in part to Superman being the inspiration for all superheroes of the time, as well, perhaps, as Brainiac 5 wanting to make up for the crimes of his ancestor, the original Brainiac, but by the premiere of the second season, he's participating in holo-simulations where [[MarySue he receives fake injuries so the holo-Superman will console him before his dying breaths]]. It's not exactly definitive, but what it ''looks'' like is lost on no one - especially not the other characters, as evidenced by Timber Wolf asking Brainiac Five if he and Superman [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRxx0oElgpA "just caught a movie."]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'':
** The main conflict between Anna and Elsa is that they were once extremely close but were forcibly separated by their parents, which left them miserable, and the whole plot is about them repairing their relationship. The first thing they have to say to each other after being mostly apart for 13 years is commenting on how beautiful the other looks, and later Anna is ''stunned'' almost speechless when she sees Elsa in [[EvilCostumeSwitch her new, more revealing dress]]. Elsa is severely upset when Anna announces her engagement, leading to her first serious bout of PowerIncontinence. The trolls sing a song to Anna about how love is used to help and heal, which they intend to be about Kristoff but ends up being far more relevant to ''Elsa''. Best of all, a "ThePowerOfLove will break the curse" ending is set up, falsely leading the audience to believe one of Anna's (other) love interests will deliver a True Love's Kiss... only to turn out that it's ''Anna's love for Elsa'' that breaks it.
** In the sequel "Disney/FrozenFever" Elsa tries her hardest to make Anna's birthday special to the point of making herself ill. She puts a figurine made of ice on top of the birthday cake featuring her and Anna skating together from the end of the previous movie. When Elsa nearly falls from a great height Anna saves her and holds her close. There's also when Elsa asks Anna if she can be her "birthday date."

** Comicbook/{{Batgirl}} and Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} in "Girl's Night Out" become very close very... quickly, and in the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' Christmas episode, they are absent 'on a skiing holiday together'.

to:

** Comicbook/{{Batgirl}} ComicBook/{{Batgirl}} and Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} in "Girl's Night Out" become very close very... quickly, and in the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' Christmas episode, they are absent 'on a skiing holiday together'. This was lampshaded in ''ComicBook/HarleyAndIvy'', where Harley says [[MistakenForGay there are rumors about the two]].



** Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, just like the comics. WordOfGod confirms that the two are in an on-again-off-again relationship whenever the Joker is out of the picture, but the show itself "merely" lays on incredibly thick subtext whenever they're in the same room together.



* ''WebAnimation/DCSuperHeroGirls'': With the show's large cast of female characters, this is pretty much unavoidable. For example:
** ComicBook/{{Batgirl}} and ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}: Batgirl and Supergirl have been frequently shipped ever since their interactions in the mainstream comics and the Franchise/DCAU. This series takes things a bit further. To elaborate:
*** In "Super Hero High", while everyone except Cheetah was welcoming of Kara Zor-El, Barbara Gordon was the only shown going out of her way to make her comfortable, constantly consoling her and encouraging her to never give up. Supergirl makes note of this, and has Katana make her a super suit, and the tables are turned when she encourages her to become a hero, hence why she became Batgirl.
*** "Batgirl V Supergirl" is definitely full of this. This episode involves the titular heroes competing for the last slice of cake. The two exchange a lot of witty banter with each other that's borderline flirting, making it clear its all in good fun. Long story short, their shenanigans cause them to end up landing on top of each other in the cafeteria. Even after Harley eats the last slice, they're still on top of each other.
*** "Batnapped" has Batgirl kidnapped by Killer Moth so that he can force her to be his partner. She of course says no, and says her true partner is Supergirl, who comes to her rescue. Granted, she's referring to how her best friend is her partner, but the fact they have a special communication system and a secret handshake should mean something.
*** The Lego Brain Drain movie has two stand out moments:
*** We start the movie with Supergirl making a Narm Charm heroic comment to a group of thieves, which impresses Batgirl, and the latter is noticeably touched.
*** During one of the fights about 20 minutes into the movie, Batgirl gets saved by Supergirl after falling, and is in her arms for at least a full minute.
** Harley and Ivy: Harley and Ivy have been heavily shipped ever since Batman: The Animated Series due to their well developed chemistry. Some standout moments include:
*** When being paired up for a project in "Hero Of The Year", they both hug each other in excitement upon being paired up. The 40 minute point of the movie has them willingly working together on patrol. Keep in mind that only a few episodes ago in Harley's Hero Of The Month short, Ivy was devastated when Harley's attempts to make her a salad resulted in her ruining her plants.
*** In "Seeing Red", everyone except Starfire acted like huge jerks due to Red Kryptomite. One scene involves Harley and Ivy pinning Starfire against the wall with a monster plant, and taunting her. Let's just say that their chemistry is exactly like that of Batman: The Animated Series .
*** In the "Intergalactic Games" movie, Harley makes a comment on how graceful Ivy's vine whipping was during one of the competitions, which makes her blush.
** Lady Shiva and Big Barda: Lady Shiva and Big Barda represent opposite ends of the warrior spectrum, with the former being hot headed and all about honor while the latter is more laid back and aggressive. Naturally, they have plenty of moments to click.
*** One of the plots in "Hero Of The Year " has Lady Shiva thinking that Big Barda is still secretly working for the Female Furies when the latter enrolls in the school. Her dedication to proving it is almost like with Cheetah trying to outshine Wonder Woman in season 1 with how dead set she is. Once her worth is proven, they’re more or less inseparable.
*** Lady Shiva’s Hero Of The Month short shows that she and Big Barda regularly hang out fighting baddies on a girl’s night out, and enjoying it. It’s almost like a date.
*** In the "Intergalactic Games " movie, when Big Barda is being taunted by the Female Furies for being a hero, Lady Shiva comes to her defense. The actions do seem to suggest that she feels something more for Barda considering how furious she was at the Furies for insulting her.
*** "New Perry-spective" has the two of them and Batgirl attempting to figure out what to do with a Parademon that wandered in. Let's just say that more focus is put on Barda and Shiva, and their arguments wouldn't feel out of place on a marriage with Barda serving as the all loving wife and Shiva as the more cynical "husband".
** Batgirl, Supergirl, and Wonder Woman: The big three is composed of Wonder Woman, Batman, and Superman. Considering the series, the latter two are swapped out with their young female protégés, putting this trope into effect.
*** In "Super Hero High", Wonder Woman thinks Supergirl is trying to steal her thunder. What convinces her otherwise? Barbara Gordon's insistence on belong her adjust. When she becomes Batgirl and the two decide to stay at Super Hero High, they give each other a great big hug. You could interpret this as jealousy for cheating, and then getting together when clearing things up, and there would be little difference.
*** In "Body Electric", Batgirl makes a comment on how it would be like to have a sister. The other two girls then proceeds to hug her in response.
*** All three girls take center stage in the Lego Galactic Wonder special and the Lego Brain Drain movie. They're constantly hugging and complimenting each other, never leaving each other's sight. Some of their bickering and mischievousness is like that if a married couple.
** Batgirl and Harley Quinn: Both of the characters are essentially complete opposites that their interactions have more depth to them.
*** "Super Hero High" has a scene of Harley literally yelling out a window for Barbara Gordon to fix Supergirl's computer. Batgirl not having a negative reaction shows that she's used to it.
*** They were both the first girls to compliment each other in their respective Hero Of The Month episodes.
*** "Quinn-tessential Harley" has Batgirl being the one worried about fame inflating Harley's ego. When Harley becomes herself again, she gives Batgirl an exploding cupcake, and she actually laughs with her.
*** "Surprise" has Harley trying to give Batgirl a birthday gift despite her birthday being nowhere in the near future. Why? It's because she cares for her.
*** In the Lego short, "Crazed And Confused", while Batgirl does scold Harley for almost hurting people when using a giant whoopee cushion to stop Mad Harriet, she does know that Harley means well. It's interesting how she scolds Harley for that, but not for accidentally ruining the Batjet, something she's personally attached to.
*** In the Lego Brain Drain movie, when the brainwashed Batgirl uploads a video of Harley singing without her consent, the latter sounds like she was being cheated on. Let's just say that Batgirl wastes no time in trying to get on her good side.
** Harley Quinn and Wonder Woman: You have the studious Wonder Woman and free spirit Harley Quinn. This would naturally come into play.
*** The first sign is in the episode “Roomies”. The episode’s plot involves Wonder Woman trying to settle into the new room, but Harley’s attempts at making her welcome keep making things worse. While Harley is lovably naïve, her actions can also be interpreted as the fun loving girlfriend trying to get her partner to lighten up and have fun. The end of the episode definitely has shades of this, with Harley being over the moon when Wondy joins her on the fun.
*** In Harley's Hero Of The Month episode, Wonder Woman is the most sincere when describing how Harley is a good hero.
*** In "The Cheetah Who Cried Wolf", one scene has Wonder Woman foiling a robbery only to discover that it's Harley in disguise helping Cheetah get a Hero Of The Month award. Harley snitching her out is almost like that out of a spouse caught doing something bad.
** Other:
*** A recurring theme in season 1 is to have Cheetah repeatedly sabotage Wonder Woman’s attempts to succeed in school. While she had the classic mean girl archetype and wasn’t afraid to push others around, the fact she’s shown to actively pursue only Wonder Woman and defeat her shows signs that she’s jealous of her and, in a sense, wants to beat her to feel good about herself and impress her.
*** Harley and Bumblebee have a bit of this in “Ultimate Accessory”. The episode involves Bumblebee designing a new weapon for her Weaponomics class, and Harley helps her out with each invention. Frost keeps saying bluntly how ineffective each invention is, and Harley keeps making comments on how Bumblebee is getting burned each time, with the tone like that of a supportive partner. Bumbleebee just gives a knowing smirk each time that can easily be interpreted ad flirty. Also, the fact that Harley was the first to test out her inventions when demonstrating them to the teacher shows the trust they have in each other despite Harley usually being mischievous.
*** "Roomies Return: Frost's Bite" has Frost becoming increasingly angry as she keeps being denied various sources of heat. Miss Martian's concern for her is like that of a forlorn lover trying to make her happy. The end of the episode has them happily enjoying themselves around a steamer.
*** "The Odd Couple” is more or less made on this trope. This episode pairs up Harley and Lady Shiva in trying to catch a villain, with Harley trying to make her laugh. Much like “Roomies”, Harley’s behavior in trying to get Lady Shiva to lighten up is like that of the girlfriend trying to get her partner to lighten up. There’s a bit more to it considering that Lady Shiva is more no-nonsense than Wonder Woman. At the end, they happily go back to looking out for villains.
*** Lashina seems to invoke both this trope and Foe Yay. In “Spring Prison Break”, she speaks to Katana and Frost rather seductively when attempting to break the other Furies out of prison. A subplot in the “Intergalactic Games” movie has her trying to get Big Barda to rejoin the Female Furies. We see them reminisce, and she seems genuinely hurt when Big Barda stays with the heroes. It essentially plays out like two exes trying to reconnect. She also doesn’t mind physical contact with the heroes, as shown in “A Fury Scorned” when Hawkgirl pins her down after poisoning Batgirl’s father. She seems to enjoy the physical contact seeing as how she doesn't fight back.
*** What do "Doubles Trouble", "For Art's Sake", and "Fight Flub" have in common? They're all episodes where Katana plays a big role, and the only ones where the Double Dare twins appear, and they treat each encounter as an opportunity to mess with her specifically.

** ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' has Velma and her one-time high school rival Marcie "Hot Dog Water" Fleach. It's implied they had a "relationship" with each other.
*** Back in season one, there's an undeniable LesYay element between Velma and Amy the mermaid in "The Siren's Call."
--->'''Velma''': She's my special secret friend, so don't any of you think about stealing her! [{{beat}}] That was awkward.

* ''WesternAnimation/SofiaTheFirst'' : The show may be aimed for the preschool demographic, but there are definitely plenty of moments that can be interpreted in a more interestin light. For example:

** Sofia/Vivian: With Sofia and Vivian being doggedly nice girls, they can definitely have some moments like this:
*** "The Shy Princess" has Sofia being paired up with Vivian for a school project, and she's revealed to be shy. Sofia, upon finding out what the class thinks of Vivian, is initially hesitant to see her. Upon seeing that she's a kind and creative person, the two of them instantly connect. The duet they have has them gazing lovingly into each other's eyes and holding hands. Vivian only even considers breaking out of her shell when Sofia gently prods her to, showing that she has the choice. At the end, they hold hands and look at each other when she opens up to others. [[note]]Their connection has more meaning to it when you consider they're the first friends they truly made at Royal Prep. Think about it. Sofia feels like a fish out of water, just like Vivian, and while everyone at school is generally nice to her, she connects with Vivian the most since they both want to make something of themselves
. .[[/note]]
*** Vivian's very next appearance in "Blue Ribbon Bunny" has the two of them instantly connecting when they meet up again.
*** In both "The Enchanted Science Fair" and "Scrambled Pets", they both act as the straight man in trying to make sure nothing goes wrong. Let's just say that they act like the only sane couple of the group in both cases.
*** The ending of "All The Sprite Moves" has Sofia and Vivian dancing together in the garden of her new castle.
*** "The Princess Prodigy" is definitely heavy on this. This episode has Baron Von Rocha purposefully stroking Vivian's ego so that he can get the musical magic from her mandolin. Sofia is the one who shows the most concern for Vivian's behavior, essentially acting like a lover trying to get her partner to act normally. When Vivian drives everyone away, they're both shown to be visibly crushed, and this kickstarts Vivian's realization that she's going too far. Just like at the beginning of the episode, the ending has them partnering up again during the band performance, and looking quite happy with each other.
** Sofia/Lucinda: Sofia was the first person who gave Lucinda a chance. Naturally, she'd be grateful to her.
*** In "The Little Witch", after Sofia starts unlocking Lucinda's good side, they're inseparable. They give each other a loving look near the end.
*** In "Mom's The Word", Sofia meets up with Lucinda when they go on Mother's Day outings with their mothers. When Sofia asks her to help make sure that only she and her mother spend time, Lucinda asks her not to reveal to her mother that she's secretly a good witch who's friends with her. Replace "good witch" with "in a relationship" and "friend" with "girlfriend", and everything stays virtually the same.
*** "Cauldronation Day" shows this mostly near the end, but builds it up. This episode has Lucinda celebrating her Cauldronation, and asking Sofia to make sure her witch friends, Indigo and Lily, don't fight with each other. The latter two fight with each other to see who's the better friend to join her by her side, and Lucinda eventually settles on Sofia. Replace "friend" with "girlfriend", and it's virtually the same. Heck, Indigo and Lily do get a bit too close to her, and Sofia essentially acts like a worried lover for Lucinda.
** Sofia/Ruby/Jade: With the history Sofia had with them before becoming royalty, there would definitely be some intimate moments among them.
*** "The Big Sleepover" has Sofia trying to show Amber and friends that Ruby and Jade can be proper princesses. Ruby and Jade are shown to be crushed when Sofia says they're embarrassing her. If you put Amber and friends in the roles stern guardians and Ruby and Jade as Sofia'a girlfriends, the plot would be virtually unchanged. The ending also shows all of them having a bit too much fun hanging around with each other.
*** Lets also bring up "The Little Witch". In that episode, when Lucinda repeatedly picks on Jade, both Sofia and Ruby try to convince her not to get back at her, essentially acting like lovers trying to reach out to their partners. On a lighter note, the beginning has them make some jokes about their birthdays, and they're borderline flirtatious.
*** "The Amulet And The Anthem" and "In A Tizzy" both have scenes of Jade being mad at Sofia and Ruby respectively, with the former being more egotistical than normal and the latter seemingly slacking off and letting someone else do the work for her. Put Jade in the role of the girlfriend and the other two girls as her partners, and the scenes would stay virtually the same.
*** "Four's A Crowd" has Sofia getting jealous when Ruby and Jade spend more time with Amber than with her when preparing their float. The whole scenario is treated like an affair, as if she's being cheated on. Did I mention that this episode aired on Valentine's Day?
*** Jade's sentimental moments with Sofia and Ruby in "Princess Jade" can be quite close for comfort among them, mostly with Jade thinking on how she'll miss Ruby, yet also want to stay connected with Sofia.
** Hildegard/ Clio: Hildegard and Clio are together all the time, even without Amber at times. Something would be up.
*** In "The Big Sleepover", Clio is shown to be the one most tolerant of Ruby and Jade's antics, even wanting to join them before Hildegard stops her. The latter is essentially acting like s jealous girlfriend.
*** "Two To Tangu" and "Tea For Too Many" both have Clio agreeing to everything that Hildegard says, essentially playing the role of the lover acting like an obedient listener.
*** "Sidekick Clio" is the epitome of this. Hildegard goes away for a few days, with Sofia encouraging Clio to try out for the school play, but she says no. Why? Because it's not what Hildegard wants. When she gets back, her anger at Clio has a ting of jealousy at being snubbed and cheated on. Their tender moment at the end is like two lovers making up.
** Other:
*** In "Clover Time" it's implied that Mia and Robin live together. That's not even the half of it. Their subplot in "The Leafsong Festival" has Robin picked for an audition over Mia, and the latter is jealous when the former is bragging about it. If this were written as a story about a strained romantic relationship, very little would have to change. They even have a heartfelt moment at the end.
*** Amber seems somewhat hurt when Hildegard hugs Sofia in "The Princess Stays In The Picture", as she "never hugs me like that."
