* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'': Her behavior in some of the cutscenes already suggest it, but finishing Kass's sidequests and listening to his teacher's song at Rito village will confirm that [[spoiler: Princess Zelda had fallen for Link, her appointed knight. As it turns out, Kass's teacher had been a Shiekah poet for the Hylian royal court who had been Zelda's age 100 years ago, and had fallen in love with her. However, she only had eyes for her knight, which left the poet jealous and resentful. After the Calamity Ganon appeared, the poet witnesses Link sacrifice himself protecting Zelda and Zelda's dormant power awakening through her love for him. After which, he decided to write the hero a song to be passed down to him when he finally awoke. It's this song that Kass preforms to Link, which reveals the extent of Zelda's feelings for him.]] How Link feels, however, is purposely ambiguous and left up to the player to decide via dialogue options with npcs.

*** Among the [[spoiler: Second Generation]] characters, [[MagicalGirlWarrior Ophelia]] considers herself sworn to [[WhiteMage Forrest]]'s service just as [[spoiler: her father Odin is sworn to the aforementioned Prince Leo aka Forrest's father]], and she can be... excessively fierce in her attempts to protect the prince, to the point of nearly attacking street merchants whose perfume caused Forrest to cough. If they reach an S Support, Forrest proclaims his love for her and she reciprocates.



* Shirou Emiya of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' tends to be extremely protective of others, especially the heroine of each route, with most of the romances looking like this. In ''Fate'' he frustrates Saber to no end by throwing himself into danger to protect her even though by the rules of the Holy Grail War she is supposed to be ''his'' bodyguard; while Saber complains repeatedly she does find his determination and chivalry charming, which makes sense as [[spoiler: she is King Arthur and called the King of Knights for a reason]]. In ''Unlimited Blade Works'' Shirou is much more willing to let Saber do the fighting and spends most of the route trying to protect Rin and is seen to be quite jealous of Rin's actual bodyguard Archer, [[spoiler:who ironically is an alternate future version of ''himself'']]. In ''Heaven's Feel'' Shirou devotes his efforts to help save Sakura even to the point that he [[spoiler: agonizingly abandons Kiritsugu's ideal which was his main driving force in the previous routes because he cannot bring himself to harm Sakura, whom he had sworn to protect, even though she causes the deaths of numerous innocents with her curse]]. This trope seems to be the way that Shirou develops romantic feelings for ''anyone'' and will likely be seen in the Illya route if it is ever released.
