** Later, in the most infuriating event in ''Pretty Cure'' history,
their respective recipients died shortly afterwards real FirstKiss would be interrupted by... [[DancingTheme Ganbalance de Dance]].
* Any chance for Ranma and Akane in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' to explore their feelings for each other with a kiss is interrupted by someone (or several someones) -- very often their over-eager fathers who want them to marry ''right now,'' or bystanders and/or rivals [[MomentKiller who go out of their way to interrupt and completely ruin the mood]]. It. Happens. All. The. Time.
** An episode of the anime has Shampoo cursed by Mao Molin's and turned into a cat forever if she can't be kissed from the guy that love. Ranma accept,
but ''Lagann-hen'' gave us one instance of this trope: when Nia accepts Simon's proposal of marriage, the two of them almost kiss but they start to kiss, are interrupted by Nia switching to [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Anti-Spiral]] [[FaceHeelTurn mode]].
* In ''Anime/OkusamaWaMahouShoujo'', considering what will happen if a MagicalGirl ever kisses someone, this happens on several occasions.
* In the five-part miniseries ''Wasted Minds'' by {{Creator/Rumiko Takahashi}}, Tamuro asks Yura which country's trash she wants to teleport to (He has the power of teleportation, but [[BlessedWithSuck can only teleport from trash pile to trash pile]]). She tells him "France" and they lean in to kiss each other, only to be interrupted by Mr. Sekoi calling out:
--> I brought some bread and milk!
* In ''Manga/FutureDiary''
an angry Akane because thwy were "too serious". [[spoiler: Nishijima and Minene]] share an almost At the end, the curse is broken when Shamppo kiss but are interrupted by a Walkie-Talkie. Kinda sad once you realize that [[spoiler: Minene and the 2nd world's Nishijima]] never get another chance.
* A running gag of sorts in ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'', given that the relationship between Keichii and Belldandy always teeters on the brink of romantic action but never crosses the threshold, making these inevitable.
* Occurs in ''Manga/BokuraNoKiseki'' between leads Harusumi and Takao in chapter [[spoiler: 12]]. Harusumi chickens out because he's not sure if Takao's feelings for
him are actually romantic or not. (It's [[{{Reincarnation}} complicated]].)
* In chapter 50 of ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' it appears as though Mikasa might be leaning in to kiss Eren in a sort of ''AnguishedDeclarationOfLove'' style, until he snaps out of his funk and returns to "kill all titans" mode.
* In the ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' movie Syaoran and Sakura accidentally lean on each other extremely close
while hiding she is in a barrels. In the manga, Sakura performs a charm in Syaoran which requires her to connect their foreheads but are interrupted by Mokona. The two downright deny any romantical implication but Mokona is sure "It's love!"
cat-form.]]
* In ''Manga/LoveSoLife'', Shiharu and Seiji come close to ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'', this very early on, but are interrupted by is a RunningGag. Usually "interrupted" due to Moka suddenly biting Tsukune in the twins' antics.neck, or by Kurumu pushing Moka before she gets a chance to bite him.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/SaintSeiya'':
** Seiya and Saori after jumping off a cliff together to escape from Shaina and Jamian. Saori nearly kiss an unconscious Seiya, but is interrupted by an [[ClingyJealousGirl angry Shaina]].
** Seiya and Miho, but they're interrupted [[MomentKiller by the orphan kids.]]
* Happens several times in ''VisualNovel/{{Shuffle}}''
** The first is with Rin and [[spoiler:Sia]]: When they get separated from their friends during the BeachEpisode, they act like they've crossed into another world where they're alone and go for the kiss. Hilarious in that Primula walks behind them looking for seashells; both parties ignore each other's presence.
** The second instance is when Rin walks [[spoiler:Asa]] home after the latter twisted her ankle. Both are sitting on her bed, and Rin is getting teased. When the poor girl stands up, she trips and falls on Rin, pinning him to the bed. She leans in for the kiss, but her mother comes home and goes up to the room; when she opens the door, we see the two separated, with Rin sitting at the desk (as is, of course, proper for a gentleman).
* In the finale of ''Manga/SpecialA,'' [[CuteMute Megumi]] and former BigBad Yahiro's kiss is interrupted by Tadashi zipping by on his bike. Yahiro lampshades this, shouting at Tadashi for ruining the atmosphere.
* Lawrence and Holo in 1x04 of ''LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf.'' It was interrupted by Holo herself because that wasn't her reason for getting into his bed.
* A RunningGag in ''Manga/StrawberryOneHundredPercent'': most of the times Junpei is going to kiss one of the girls (usually Tojo), someone interrupts.
* Many in ''LightNovel/StrawberryPanic '' between Shizuma and Nagisa, [[spoiler:until the UnderwaterKiss in Episode 12.]]
* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo''
** From the main OVA’s show-within-a-show, Popoko-ko and her chief: "Hey, sorry to interrupt, but we have news to report..." "Aw!"
** In the spinoff ''Anime/PrettySammy'', Tenchi and Ryoko nearly kiss, only to be interrupted by [[TheOjou Ayeka]].
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' only showed us the two kisses Yoko gave out before their respective recipients died shortly afterwards but ''Lagann-hen'' gave us one instance of this trope: when Nia accepts Simon's proposal of marriage, the two of them almost kiss but are interrupted by Nia switching to [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Anti-Spiral]] [[FaceHeelTurn mode]].
* In the ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' movie Syaoran and Sakura accidentally lean on each other extremely close while hiding in a barrels. In the manga, Sakura performs a charm in Syaoran which requires her to connect their foreheads but are interrupted by Mokona. The two downright deny any romantical implication but Mokona is sure "It's love!"
* In ''Manga/VampireKnight'', after waking up from a nightmare, Zero was relieved to see Yuuki unharmed and tried to kiss her, but [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy ultimately stopped himself]].
* [[spoiler:Hamel and Flute]] in a late chapter of ''Manga/ViolinistOfHameln''. They're ''finally'' about to kiss when [[BigBad Chestra]], MomentKiller extraordinaire, sets off an extremely untimely earthquake.
* In the five-part miniseries ''Wasted Minds'' by {{Creator/Rumiko Takahashi}}, Tamuro asks Yura which country's trash she wants to teleport to (He has the power of teleportation, but [[BlessedWithSuck can only teleport from trash pile to trash pile]]). She tells him "France" and they lean in to kiss each other, only to be interrupted by Mr. Sekoi calling out:
--> I brought some bread and milk!
* There's at least three of these between Sachie and Rakuto in every volume of ''Manga/WildOnes''. It gets frustrating after a bit.
