* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn''. Tsuna has a big crush on [[SatelliteLoveInterest Kyoko]], who only seems to see him as a [[TrueCompanions really good friend]]. Kyoko herself is a whole lot more concerned with her HotBlooded brother Ryouhei (though she has also expressed slight interest in [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Gokudera]]). Gokudera, in turn, is [[StalkerWithACrush obsessively devoted to]] (and very heavily implied to be [[BodyguardCrush crushing on]]) Tsuna, who sees him as a good friend (but is also scared of his aggressiveness). Yamamoto wants Gokudera to "open his heart to him" and obviously wishes to… [[HoYay further their relationship]]; Gokudera really dislikes Yamamoto, however, and hates how Tsuna seems more comfortable with him. Ryouhei mainly just cares about living life [[CatchPhrase TO THE EXTREME]] (though he did have a small crush on adult I-Pin). I-Pin has a big crush on Hibari (who reminds her of her sensei). Hibari really only cares about having FoeRomanceSubtext with Mukuro (and later, [[spoiler: some with Tsuna]]). However, Mukuro is obsessed with having ''his'' FoeRomanceSubtext with Tsuna ("I want to possess your body" indeed). Ken and Chikusa are crazed fanboys over Mukuro, who tends to treat them like crap (save for one PetTheDog instance). Haru loves Tsuna, who ''really'' doesn't see her that way, and constantly tries to discourage her. Hana has a crush on the future Lambo, but he barely knows her since 99% of the time he's stuck ten years in the future, leaving her to interact only with his infant self (to whom she's literally allergic). While [[CasanovaWannabe Dr. Shamal]] may run after every girl who's ever passed within fifty feet of him, he has significantly more of a crush on Bianchi, who responds with [[ImprobableWeaponUser a plate of Poison Cooking to the face]]. And then there's Bianchi herself, with an unrequited love for Reborn. Oh, and Levi's undying devotion to Xanxus is as unappreciated as Genkishi's is to Byakuran. Also Squalo has a very loud love for his boss, Xanxus. Gamma is also [[BodyguardCrush rather protective]] of Uni.

* In ''Anime/ProjectAKo'', basically every character's love of another is unrequited. HilarityEnsues.

B-ko also has feelings for C-ko, but C-ko is unrequited. HilarityEnsues.soley devoted to A-ko.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Guenevere}}'', the titular character can engineer a situation like this - she's married to KingArthur and (naturally) the object of Sir Lancelot's affection, but the player can choose to specifically cultivate their feelings for her (as well as those of Arthur's sister [[GayOption Morgana]] while not actually returning them in any way.

* In the ''Anime/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' FanFic ''FanFic/{{Sehnsucht}}'', the audience is initially led to believe that Cynthia, Noriko's past life, spared Daemon Spade after he betrayed the First Generation out of respect for her adoptive sister, Elena. [[spoiler:While that may have played a part, the actual reason why Cynthia spared Daemon was because she was in love with him]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', [[SeekerArchetype Dipper]] has a PrecociousCrush on [[OneOfTheGuys Wendy]], who instead hooked up with [[EmoTeen Robbie]]; they eventually broke up. Meanwhile [[CloudCuckooLander Mabel]] has a new crush all the time, but for one reason or another they rarely work out. (Of those who reciprocate: one turned out to be [[spoiler:a bunch of gnomes]] while another was a [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent merman]] who had to return to the sea.)

** This is further complicated by the fact that Itsuki uses who was seen in what room to form a diagram of [[spoiler: the number to solve the formula and let them out of the mansion]] and then theorizes that [[spoiler: it was Yuki who made the fakes to give them a hint]]. However this may not be true as the mansion they were in was set up to provide them with everything they wanted as soon as they thought about it, such as instantly finding stuff to make sandwiches in the fridge or an ice pack that wasn't there before… and right before [[spoiler: fake!Mikuru]] appears in Kyon's room he was thinking about her coming in to see him. As it so happens, the diagram Itsuki drew also doesn't actually work. He drew [[spoiler: an arabic "4"]] which couldn't be made given the positioning of the rooms, but [[spoiler: a digital four (like an upside-down/flipped "h")]] still could have if different people had been in different rooms. Even ignoring the SnowMountainSyndrome episode, it's heavily implied in the main series (and confirmed for the alternate universe) [[spoiler: that Itsuki has feelings for Haruhi. Which means Itsuki likes Haruhi while Yuki and Haruhi both like Kyon.]]

* In the original ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' miniseries, Gert has a crush on Chase, who has a crush on Karolina, who has a crush on Nico, who has a crush on Alex.



* In the Japanese DVD ''SeaOfDreams'', one short centers around a group of five friends spending a day together at Tokyo Disney Sea park. The story is narrated by a boy who has unrequited feelings for a girl dating another guy in the group. Throughout the short, it is revealed that all five teens have unrequited love for another in the group, but no one really acts on these feelings and life goes on.
* ''{{Film/Miao Miao}}''. The main three characters play this straight, but even the side characters get this to a platonic degree.

* Played straight in ''Film/LoveAndDeath'', where Boris has been in love with his cousin Sonja since they were kids, but she pines futilely for his idiot brother Ivan, who in turn only has eyes for Anna. Later parodied when Sonja's mopey cousin Natasha lists a long string of her acquaintances who are all pining after each other.

* In ''Film/SkyHigh'' this is Mr. Boy, for Jetstream. Justified in-story, in that a hero like her could never notice someone in 'Hero Support'--not with the strapping, handsome, charismatic Commander around.

* ''CampLazlo'': Patsy loves Lazlo, who may or may not love her. Clam loves Gretchen who loves Edward who hates her. Lumpus loves Jane loves Pothole loves Lumpus, until Jane gets engaged to Manfred. That last one is a source of much frustration and [[RuleOfFunny humor]] on the series, until on the final season [[spoiler:Lumpus proposes to Jane]].

* ''Literature/WingsOfFire'': Fatespeaker loves [[TheSmartGuy Starflight,]] who loves Sunny, who only thinks of him as a brother. The second arc is much worse; Turtle may or may not have a crush on Kinkajou, who has a crush on Winter, who is in love with [[spoiler:Moonwatcher.]] Qibli is also shown to like [[spoiler:Moon,]] and it's unclear whether she likes either of them back. Qilbi also has some HoYay with Winter. [[ClosetGay Umber]] has a crush on Qilbi.
