* ''Series/TheNewAdventuresOfOldChristine''. Old Christine and her ex-husband, Richard, are the epitome of the Amicably Divorced, tossing deprecatory puns back and forth between them while helping each other sort through their problems. In fact, they both count as being among each other's best friends. This caused New Christine to call off her and Richard's wedding, as she was upset that the two were spending so much time together, even at the wedding. Interestingly, [[Creator/JuliaLouisDreyfus Julia Louis-Dreyfus]] who plays Old Christine, also played Elaine on ''Seinfeld''.

--->'''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}:''' We dated for years, all through college. Were were '''good''' together. [...] I guess we grew apart... grew up. We stayed friends, but I hadn't seen him in years.


Added DiffLines:

* Subverted in ''Series/Supergirl2015''. [[ComicBook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}} Mon-El]] and [[ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} Kara Danvers]] were forcibly separated when she had to send him into space to save his life. When they meet again, Mon-El has spent seven years in the future and moved on. He still wants to be Kara's friend and Kara tries, but she just can't.
-->'''Kara:''' (to Mon-El) This is worse than the worst thing I could possibly imagine. That's you looking at me with no love in your eyes. So please just... Please... (walks away in tears)

* Though nobody is except from RonTheDeathEater, there's a trend for ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' fans who ship Vegeta with anyone other than Bulma to portray the two of them as this. It probably helps that Vegeta and Bulma started out as just a one-time hookup, and he's often paired with Goku, who has a wife most fanfic writers seem to find easier to demonize.

Added DiffLines:

* Fred and Mary Andrews on ''Series/{{Riverdale}}'' are still close enough that Fred mentions in a phone call with Archie that the two are having dinner with one another, even despite the two officially discussing finalizing their divorce after being legally separated for months, and Fred even uses the word amicable when describing his relationship with Mary to Hermione.
* ''Series/IZombie'' shows that even after calling off the engagement, due to her zombiesm, Liv and Major still share a very close and involving friendship with one another.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': Bulma and Yamcha seem to have remained fairly good friends after their breakup, in spite of the fact that Bulma's new love interest is a former villain.
** ... who was indirectly responsible for Yamcha's death (he got better) while they were still dating. ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' actually makes this the reason for the breakup and hookup.
