Added DiffLines:

* The stage adaptation of ''Theatre/{{Anastasia}}'' gives us Vlad and Lily, in a parallel to Dmitry and Anya. Both couples consist of a con man and an aristocratic woman, although Vlad and Lily seem to have a ''much'' easier time of rekindling their romance than Dmitry and Anya have of admitting theirs.

* In ''Anime/{{Macross}}'', there's Roy Focker and Claudia [=LaSalle=] in ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'', and Ozma Lee and Cathy Glass in ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', who each play Beta Couple to their respective series's official LoveTriangle. Also from ''Frontier'', there's Michel and Klan, although [[spoiler:that particular Beta Couple met an [[HeroicSacrifice unexpected end]]]].



* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has Sasuke and Sakura as the Beta Couple to Naruto and Hinata. [[WordOfGod The author stated in a post-series interview]] that he deliberately gave Sakura several traits typically associated with the female half of an ALPHA couple, such as a {{Tsundere}} personality and an unrequited crush from the hero for most of the series, simply to [[RedHerring keep the fans guessing as to what the final pairings would be]].

* In the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}} fandom, a popular practice among fans of "Ferriswheelshipping" ([[FoeYay N and Hilda]]) or "Isshushipping" ([[HoYay N and Hilbert]]) is to make [[CuteClumsyGirl Bianca]] and [[DeadpanSnarker Cheren]] the beta couple. Certainly helped in the sequel, which includes a subtle ShipTease between them (Bianca is wearing glasses that suspiciously resemble Cheren's and Cheren himself is no longer wearing glasses at all).

* In [[AVeryPotterMusical StarKidPotter's]] ''Theatre/MeAndMyDick'', the main Beta couples are the alpha couple's body parts, Dick and Miss Cooter and Joey and Sally's hearts, and Joey and Sally can only get together when they are happily paired off. There are a couple less prominent beta couples too, like The Old Snatch and Big T.

* ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' has the hero and titular character's growing romance being second to that of his best friends; Ron and Hermione get the lion share of romantic focus whenever it arises while Harry and Ginny's development as a couple works itself out at a faster pace without all the bickering and far less mixed messages.

At least once it gets going, which takes a few books, with Ginny pining for Harry, then moving on while he pines for her.
