* ''Anime/{{Sailor Moon}}'' Specifically in Sailor Moon R: The Movie. Mamoru's an orphan who was comforted by a very young Usagi in the hospital after his parent's death. Ten years later they reunite and mimic the same pose of her with her head on his knee comforting him. They normally fit more into SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl, however.

* Silverbolt and Blackarachnia in the ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'''s spin-off ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines''.

to:

* Silverbolt and Blackarachnia in the ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'''s spin-off ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines''. \n This is a reversal of how their relationship started: he was a painfully earnest KnightInShiningArmor, she was a snarky DarkActionGirl. In the sequel series, however, he gets brainwashed into being a sadistic villain and is pretty traumatized by it when he's finally freed. He doesn't act like his old self again until the GrandFinale.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'':

Robin and Starfire in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''.Starfire, particularly whenever Robin gets laser-focused on stopping Slade.

* Though it's never been confirmed, if Laharl and Flonne got together after the canon end of Hour of Darkness, this trope would largely sum up what that relationship would be like.

** ''{{Simoun}}'''s Neviril and Aaeru/Aer, and to a lesser extent Dominura and Limone.

** ''{{Simoun}}'''s Neviril and Aaeru/Aer, and to a lesser extent Dominura and Limone.Limone have elements of this from the start, but they really fall into the pattern after their Emerald Ri Maajon. Neviril and Aaeru/Aer are a mixed example -- Aaeru is more [[GenkiGirl energetic]] than the average Gentle Girl, but Neviril is ''very'' [[AchillesInHisTent brooding]].

** Also keeping their relationship from [[VisualNovel/DanganRonpa the game]], Makoto and Kyoko. However, rather than being just a GenderFlip as it was then, their dynamic is played a bit more straight when Makoto has a moment of broodiness and fear, and Kyoko is the one to lift him up. [[spoiler: They're this close to becoming StarCrossedLovers, but ultimately survive.]]

Added DiffLines:

* A few {{Yuri}} examples:
** ''AkumaNoRiddle'''s Tokaku and Haru are a textbook case. The same ''appears'' to be true of Chitaru and Hitsugi at first...
** ''{{Simoun}}'''s Neviril and Aaeru/Aer, and to a lesser extent Dominura and Limone.
** ''StrawberryPanic'''s Shizuma and Nagisa. Shizuma acts flamboyant to hide her brooding, but when it comes to the surface, ''boy howdy.''

* {{Downplayed|Trope}} in''{{Manga/Naruto}}'' with the titular charater. While he is the near epitome of {{Determinator}}, MagneticHero, and TheHeart - basically, he's the one who can usually be the one to bring another out of their brooding, self-loathing attitude. However, during the moments that had even ''him'' reach the DespairEventHorizon, it has always been ''[[LivingEmotionalCrutch Hinata]]'' (the girl who was initially very self-deprecating of herself) to give him the strength to gain back his confidence.
