** Tsuna and Kyoko aren't really very different in personality. They're both determined, both naive and good natured, and both very oblivious to other character's feelings for them (In Kyoko's case, Tsuna's feelings for her; In Tsuna's case, Haru and Gokudera's feelings for him). It doesn't help that due to ArtEvolution, Tsuna and Kyoko are now practically [[http://www.mangareader.net/284-20458-15/katekyo-hitman-reborn/chapter-237.html twins]].

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is this with Hinata. In terms of personality and fighting style, they embody OppositesAttract. Otherwise, they're very similar. Both were considered failures by everyone around them, both suffered because of the respective statuses they have carried since birth, and both wanted to be acknowledged and accepted. Both are really nice, dorky, determined, loyal, and insecure. [[AllThereInTheManual According to the databooks]], they share similar habits and likes, from the food they like to their hobbies with plants. Their respective signature colors--Orange and Purple--share the common color {{Red|StringOfFate}} on the [[https://designcode.io/cloud/chapter1/Colors-Wheel.png color wheel]]. Finally, both are incredibly empathetic, despite living in a world where that trait is easily looked down upon. This is one of the reasons why they developed a strong friendship [[spoiler:that grew into love]].

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is this with Hinata. In regards to personality and fighting style, they embody OppositesAttract. Other than that, they actually have quite a lot in common. Both of them are [[DarkAndTroubledPast incredibly lonely people with painful pasts]]. Both were [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer deemed failures by everyone around them]]--for Naruto, it was nearly the entire village of Konoha; for Hinata, it was [[AbusiveParents her own family]]. Both were hated by everyone around them because of the respective statuses they have carried since birth--Naruto is the host of the Nine-Tails Jinchuuriki, which led to almost everyone in the village hating him throughout his childhood; Hinata was slated to be [[HeiressToTheDojo the heiress of the illustrious Hyuga clan]] but was disinherited due to her refusal to hurt her younger sister in a duel, which led to her entire clan hating her and claiming her to be weak, which led to her being [[ParentalAbandonment disowned and kicked out]] for a while. Both craved to be acknowledged and accepted by the people around them. Both [[IJustWantToBeLoved wanted to know that they mattered and desired love]]. Both have a tendency to [[HeroicSelfDeprecation get really down on themselves when they think they're "useless"]]. Both [[InsecureLoveInterest feel unworthy of being loved by someone else]], especially when it comes to [[spoiler:their love for each other]]. Both are {{All Loving Hero}}es who are incredible empathetic, despite living in a world where that trait is easily looked down upon. This is one of the reasons why they developed a strong friendship [[spoiler:that led to [[OneTrueLove true love]] and [[HappilyMarried a happy marriage]]]]. Both are {{Determinator}}s who have proved to everyone around them that they are '''not''' failures after all. Both are respective [[TheChosenOne Chosen Ones]] and [[TheUnchosenOne Unchosen Ones]] who have helped each other throughout the series. Both are TheHeart among their friends who have [[HopeBringer restored hope in each other and in others]] during some of the darkest moments of the series. Both [[IGaveMyWord never go back on their word]]. [[AllThereInTheManual According to the databooks]], they share similar habits and likes, from the food they like (red bean soup is listed as one of their individual favorite foods) to their hobbies with plants--[[RealMenWearPink Naruto talks to them while watering them]]; Hinata likes to collect pressed flowers. Both wear [[LightIsGood bright-colored clothing]] that match their [[NiceGuy friendly nature]]--Naruto wears bright orange; Hinata wears bright purple/lavender and cream/white.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** Zuko and Mai somehow manage to be this ''and'' OppositesAttract at the same time. While they're both [[PerpetualFrowner perpetually frowning]] [[EmoTeen Emo Teens]] with [[FreudianExcuse some kind of family issue]] who are from the Fire Nation and use bladed weapons, their temperaments are completely opposite: Zuko is a HotBlooded {{Determinator}}, whereas Mai is an {{emotionless|Girl}} DefrostingIceQueen.
** Zuko and Katara are a non-romantic example of this. Both are passionate, determined individuals willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish their goals, whether it be capturing the Avatar or helping him. Both are also shown to be pretty evenly matched in terms of bending abilities, and the few times they are actually on the same side/not angry at each other they work very well together and get along extremely well, showcased best in the finale.
* Finn and Marceline from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' are a non-romantic example; who both enjoy adventure and edgy lives.



* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'': Brittany and Kevin; Mac and Jodie.
* ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' and its movies used this on several occasions. The episode "Puppy Love" involves ShrinkingViolet NiceGuy PJ getting into a TwiceShy situation with ShrinkingViolet NiceGirl Rose Deckenbloom (and if that weren't enough, both of them know how it feels to be belittled). The first movie involved {{Adorkable}} Max falling for {{Adorkable}} Roxanne and vice versa, and they are both socially awkward in exactly the same way. The second movie actually has ''two'' of these: PJ and Beret Girl, the cynical-but-sympathetic beatniks, and Goofy and Sylvia, the DiscoDan duo--and in both of PJ's cases, they shared a common taste in poetry too.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', Soos meets a woman named Melody who shares a few of the same ManChild quirks he has. They hit it off and go on a date, and not even an attack by a {{Yandere}} computer program is enough to break them up.



* In the ''[[WesternAnimation/KaBlam Life With Loopy]]'' episode "Larry's Girl", this is how Larry and Stacey fall in love. Stacey notices that Larry's just as big a fan of ''[[ShowWithinAShow The Charlie Chicken Show]]'' as she is, and he notices that she's wearing the exact same sweater of the show that he's wearing. Cue the both of them staring at each other [[WingdingEyes with big red hearts in their eyes]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': [[OfficialCouple Quack Quack and Eugly]]. They're both much nicer than the other characters, [[NoRespectGuy receive little to no respect from anyone else]], and they're both [[TheUnintelligible incapable of speech that can be understood (Quack Quack speaks in quacks and Eugly speaks in indistinct mumbles)]].
%%* Kick and [[ActionGirl Scarlet Rosetti]] in ''WesternAnimation/KickButtowski''.
* In Episode 5 of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Bolin explains to his brother Mako why he likes Avatar Korra: "Korra and I are perfect for each other. [[ActionGirl She's strong]], [[StoutStrength I'm strong]]. [[TheLadette She's fun]], [[BigFun I'm fun]]. She's beautiful...[[BigBeautifulMan I'm gorgeous!]]"
** Though unfortunately for Bolin, Korra doesn't feel the same way. While she does care very much about him as a friend, her affections lie firmly with Mako, who is NotSoDifferent from Korra.
** It pays off better in Season 3 when Bolin meets Opal, Lin Beifong's niece, who's just as {{Adorkable}} and kind hearted as he is.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Rarity and Spike both have issues with {{Greed}}, what with the latter being a dragon. Because Rarity is also the [[TheChosenOne element of generosity]], both of them have to overcome their greed for the other's sake.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "The Last Temptation Of Homer", Homer meet Mindy Simmons, a new employee at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant who is a DistaffCounterpart oh Homer, except attractive.

* In the 2015 ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic,'' Marianne, a fairy princess, and the King of the Goblins may ''look'' like opposites but over the course of the movie they bond over fighting, past heartbreaks, and their complete abhorrence to love. [[spoiler:And then they fall for each other.]]

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is this with Hinata. In regards to personality and fighting style, they embody OppositesAttract. Other than that, they actually have quite a lot in common. Both of them are [[DarkAndTroubledPast incredibly lonely people with painful pasts]]. Both were [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer deemed failures by everyone around them]]--for Naruto, it was nearly the entire village of Konoha; for Hinata, it was [[AbusiveParents her own family]]. Both were hated by everyone around them because of the respective statuses they have carried since birth--Naruto is the host of the Nine-Tails Jinchuuriki, which led to almost everyone in the village hating him throughout his childhood; Hinata was slated to be [[HeiressToTheDojo the heiress of the illustrious Hyuga clan]] but was disinherited due to her refusal to hurt her younger sister in a duel, which led to her entire clan hating her and claiming her to be weak, which led to her being [[ParentalAbandonment disowned and kicked out]] for a while. Both craved to be acknowledged and accepted by the people around them. Both [[IJustWantToBeLoved wanted to know that they mattered and desired love]]. Both have a tendency to [[HeroicSelfDeprecation get really down on themselves when they think they're "useless"]]. Both [[InsecureLoveInterest feel unworthy of being loved by someone else]], especially when it comes to [[spoiler:their love for each other]]. Both [[IGaveMyWord never go back on their word]]. Both are {{All Loving Hero}}es who are incredible empathetic, despite living in a world where that trait is easily looked down upon. This is one of the reasons why they developed a strong friendship [[spoiler:that led to [[OneTrueLove true love]] and [[HappilyMarried a happy marriage]]]]. Both are {{Determinator}}s who have proved to everyone around them that they are '''not''' failures after all. Both are respective [[TheChosenOne Chosen Ones]] and [[TheUnchosenOne Unchosen Ones]] who have helped each other throughout the series. Both are TheHeart among their friends who have [[HopeBringer inspired hope in each other and in others]] during some of the darkest moments of the series. [[AllThereInTheManual According to the databooks]], they share similar habits and likes, from the food they like (red bean soup is listed as one of their individual favorite foods) to their hobbies with plants--[[RealMenWearPink Naruto talks to them while watering them]]; Hinata likes to collect pressed flowers. Both wear [[LightIsGood bright-colored clothing]] that match their [[NiceGuy friendly nature]]--Naruto wears bright orange; Hinata wears bright purple/lavender and cream/white. Finally, Naruto and Hinata's respective signature colors--orange and purple--are placed on [[RuleOfSymbolism opposite ends of each other]] on the [[https://designcode.io/cloud/chapter1/Colors-Wheel.png color wheel]].
