* ''Creator/DanteAlighieri'' is considered the posterboy for unrequited love (just check TOW), although his situation was CourtlyLove.

* Creator/StephenSondheim's ''Theatre/{{Follies}}'' loves this trope. Buddy is having an affair with Margie, but it leaves him unfulfilled. All he really wants is for his wife Sally to reciprocate his feelings. But Sally has never gotten over having her heart broken by Buddy's best friend Ben, who married her best friend Phyllis. Phyllis still loves Ben, but has become increasingly bitter and jaded as she's grown to realize that Ben only loves himself.

* ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'': Killdra ''yearns'' for her brother Killer to show her some compassion and give her time time of day, but he doesn't seem to want much to do with her. Whether her love for him goes beyond platonic is intnetionally left up in the air, though...

* VisualNovel/LittleBusters has a downplayed example that doesn't directly involve the protagonist Riki. Sasami is interested in Riki's friend Kengo, but also attracts the attention of Aikawa, a very minor character whose love sickness Riki and Rin are asked to cure during one of Lennon's missions. The two succeed in helping him out not by playing TheMatchmaker, but by helping him realize his feelings are unrequited and helping him get back on track with his studying, which he was too distracted to do. Kengo is implied to have feelings for Miyuki Koshiki, [[spoiler:though she ended up committing suicide in the real world, making her TheLostLenore for Kengo]]. Sasami ultimately subverts this trope with Riki, as she does become a heroine with her own route in the UpdatedRerelease.
* In ''VisualNovel/MajiDeWatashiNiKoishinasai'',[[spoiler: Azumi's route, where Miyako is in love with Yamato who is in love with azumi who is in love with Hideo who is in love with Kazuko who doesn't love him back.]]

UpdatedRerelease, the fact that [[spoiler:her route takes place after the events of Refrain implies the other girls' feelings for Riki would be unrequited. The ending to Sasami's route even makes it explicit that Rin was jealous of Sasami when she revealed she was dating Riki]].

* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', Misty has a crush on Ash, which quickly develops into something much more serious. [[ObliviousToLove He's still not aware of this, and he only considers her a friend.]] The trope is somewhat subverted by the fact that he starts to show hints of being attracted to her as well as the story progresses, and WordOfGod is that her love [[RelationshipUpgrade won't remain unrequited forever]].

* Happens to several characters in ''Fanfic/ForumOfThrones'':
** Rosalie has a one-sided crush on Philip. He does care for her, though decidedly not in a romantic way, but more in the way a father would care for his daughter.
** Irving Todd holds clear feelings for Maya, even outright admitting so to his drinking buddy Marak. While she is slightly aware of it, she has shown no signs of attraction towards him in return. Given that he is TheLoad, this is not particularly surprising, not even to him.
** There are also signs that this is the nature of Alysanne's feelings for Kersea, which are a bit too close to be mere friendship. However, while Kersea values Alysanne as a friend, she certainly harbours no romantic feelings for her.
