* Another unconventional example is [=SamBakZa=]'s ''ThereSheIs'', a story in five "steps" about a relationship between Doki, a rabbit, and Nabi, a cat. In their society, friendly intermingling of felis and lepus is perfectly fine, but the reactions of others to a romance between the two highlights the still-somewhat-strained relationship between Japanese people and Koreans. In the first step, Nabi flees Doki's attentions more because of social norms than actual disinterest (although Doki's enthusiasm probably intimidates Nabi a bit, as well). The rest of the shorts are more about Doki and Nabi's attempts to cope with society's opinion of their relationship. The example works so well because the creators (Koreans) show both sides' crowds as being equally disapproving (removing bias) and refraining from demonstrating which country is represented by which animal.
* Fangirls and fanboys in the ''OfficialFanfictionUniversity'' series are not necessarily unattractive, but tend to have no grasp at all of personal space or no meaning no. Most of them are also underage, if the OFU is in a continuum where that applies, or even if it doesn't -- milennia-old elves really do not see the appeal of thirteen-year-old girls. Plus the sheer number of them tends to get wearing. "Fangirl Stampedes" are not uncommon.

* ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'' fansite The Kombat Pavilion, a host of various fan webcomics and animations, has a random intro that plays before you enter the main site. One of them has Kitana chasing Liu Kang in front of the site's logo, whining that he "runs too fast" and that "[they're] meant to be!". They run back and forth across the logo, with Liu always outrunning Kitana [[spoiler:until she disappears, leaving him to hesitate as he wonders where she is... long enough for her to appear out of nowhere, snatch him, and [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale drag him offscreen for some "Hot Edenian Love"]], [[BowChickaWowWow complete with a porn-y track made of Garageband loops]]]]. The two have a far more chivalrous relationship in the canon of the games, with Kitana's one overture being a marriage proposal that, since she's a princess, would make him her king to rule at her side; Liu Kang turns her down only because she's from another realm and taking her up on it means giving up his potential to defend Earth against otherworldly forces, but it's something of a RunningGag among fans to depict her as a ClingyJealousGirl who relentlessly pursues him. A bit subverted since she's not ugly, it's just her behavior that turns him off in these depictions.

* In ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPandaLegendsOfAwesomeness'', it's not entirely clear why the elderly goat Mrs. Yung has a thing for Monkey as the nature of her attraction is not clear. Monkey, nevertheless, dreads her because she "smells like paste", whatever that means. Comes up as a BrickJoke of sorts when during the charity auction she outbids everyone to spend the day with him and he's puffing out his chest that he's fetched the highest sum so far... until he realizes exactly who bid on him. She then drags him away to a tortuous day with her as he moans "PAAAASTE". One wonders how Monkey knew of her before since he even admitted he was reluctant to partake in the charity auction specifically because of her.

* The eponymous ''Film/{{Norbit}}'' (played by Creator/EddieMurphy) is chased [[DoubleSubverted plays with this trope]]. As children at the orphanage, the burly, bigger Rasputia saves Norbit from bullies but demands his affections in return. Decades later, they've married, though she takes him for granted and lusted after by a grotesquely even cheats on him which at first breaks his heart [[spoiler:but which he's perfectly okay with once his ''real'' LoveInterest [[ChildhoodFriendRomance from his time in the orphanage]] comes back into the picture, since her affair gives him time to reconnect with his long-lost friend]]. In spite of her own infidelity, the morbidly obese woman who looks like... Eddie Murphy.Rasputia demands that he have eyes for no one but her, which the long-suffering idiot patiently does for many years despite her constant abuse. Norbit's shown to be intimidated by Rasputia when they first meet, but unlike with typical abhorrent admirers, he doesn't run away because she [[IncrediblyLamePun cows]] him into submission.

* In ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'', the hapless minstrel Fflewddur catches the eye of the portly Orwen, one of the witches. As she [[TheGlomp latches onto him and refuses to let go]], she vouches to not turn ''him'' into a frog to be eaten, even asking if she can marry him on the spot. To be fair to her, though, she ''is'' the most normal-looking of the witches, though very forward in her attraction to the flustered Fflewddur.
