* In the shoujo manga ''Niehime to Kemono no Ou'' (The Sacrifice Princess and the King of Beasts), the [[spoiler: initially]] unnamed King is a brooding and very feared beast with a DarkAndTroubledPast [[spoiler: and human heritage]] who has been offered 99 girls as {{virgin sacrifice}}s, but he always secretly lets them go so they can rebuild their lives elsewhere. The ninety-ninth girl, Saliphie, touches his heart with her kindness and her lack of fear of him and the idea of being sacrificed to him, which impresses him enough to have her [[InterSpeciesRomance taken in as his consort instead.]]

* ''Series/GilmoreGirls'''s season has Jess and Rory. Jess is the surly brooding boy who falls for the village princess Rory, especially when he finds that she has a passion for books and music similar to his own. Bonus points that both teens were a product of TeenPregnancy but with two wildly different upbringings.

* ''Series/GilmoreGirls'''s season has Jess and Rory. Jess is the surly cynical brooding boy who falls for the village town princess Rory, especially when after he finds that discovers she has a passion for books and music similar to his own. Bonus points that both teens were a product of TeenPregnancy but with two wildly different upbringings. [[note]] Rory's mother Lorelai considered Rory to be the best thing that ever happened to her, established a stable upbringing despite money issues, encouraged Rory to be anything she wanted to be and supported her long-held dream to go to Harvard and become a journalist. Meanwhile Jess's mom Liz raised him in what was implied to be poor conditions in New York, struggled with drug and alcohol issues, filled his childhood with a revolving round of horrible boyfriends and husbands, eventually kicked him out altogether and left him with a ton of self-esteem issues. [[/note]] A recurring theme is Rory believing that Jess can do more than everyone - including him - expects and that it doesn't have to be him against the world. Although they eventually break up due to Jess's issues, he later returns having got his life together, lost the brooding aspect and acknowledged he couldn't have done so without Rory believing in him.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' doesn't lack of ships like these. The Male Avatar and Azura fit in fairly well (as do a Female Avatar and Azura, for LesYay shippers) but so do Belka and Silas or Benny (genderflipped), Rhajat and either the Avatar ([[LesYay including a Female one]]) or [[spoiler: Forrest]], Niles and either [[BiTheWay the Avatars of either gender]] or Azura, Oboro and the Male Avatar (genderflipped), Azura and Takumi (specially in their S support), Nyx and some prospect boyfriends but specially Leo (genderflipped), Xander and either Nyx or the Female Avatar, etc.

** The Didact to his wife, the Librarian. The Didact is a stern, dedicated warrior who won't hesitate to call down the full strength of 3 million worlds upon your kind if you're asking for it. The Librarian is a FriendToAllLivingThings whose favorite charges are the species the Didact nearly wiped out: humans (the two even met ''while'' he was fighting them). The contradiction is lampshaded by most everyone, but if there's one thing that can soften the Didact, it's the Librarian. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, the differences between them only widen after the Didact is driven to insanity, with the Librarian forced to turn against him in order to save her beloved humans from extinction.]]
** The franchise's main duo, Master Chief and Cortana (though the latter is somewhat more snarky and ruthless than most examples). [[spoiler:Chief actually finally breaks down and shows emotion in his voice and expression when Cortana "dies" at the end of ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}''.]]
