** The remake of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden'', ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'' has the {{canon foreigner}}s Berkut and Rinea as this. The Brooding Boy Berkut is immensely proud and arrogant, but he turns out to be also horribly insecure underneath it all; he only allows the kind and gentle Rinea to see this sadder side of him, plus he trusts her more than anyone else. On the other hand the Gentle Girl Linea is a very sweet young woman and loves Berkut with all of her heart, trying to soothe him and calm him down when he's angry or depressed.

* Downplayed but still present in ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' between the two male leads. The reserved, brooding, anxiety-riddled [[ShrinkingViolet Katsuki Yuri]] is the brooding guy to the extroverted, excitable and confident [[LivingLegend Victor Nikiforov]]'s gentle guy.

* ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'':
** Gray in ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonBackToNature'' is a grumpy and awkward young man while his love interest Mary is a sweet, shy girl. Gray's original love interest from ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon64'' was the polar opposite of Mary, being a very cheerful GenkiGirl.

* Inverted in the Kaori Route of ''Franchise/TokimekiMemorial 2'': the main protagonist there is the Gentle Boy who patiently loves and supports [[BrokenBird Kaori]], the Brooding Girl. The same can be said in the {{Novelization}} of that Route, ''Anata o Shinjiteru'', although Shunta Torigoe (who takes the place of the main protagonist there), while having the same dynamic with her, is more energetic.

** This is actually pretty standard for Mashima. Couples Gajeel and Levi, Gray and Juvia, and Jellal and Erza (if you catch her in the right mood) fit this trope

* BlazBlue gives us Ragna and Celica. While not an official couple, the shiptease is ''immense''. Ragna is the brooding, cursing, hot-headed criminal while Celica is energetic, sweet and all around nice person.

Added DiffLines:

* Gender flipped, non-romantic example from ''FanFic/TheBridge'' with Monster X and Aria Blaze. While they both brood at times and X has a gruffness to him, it's Aria Blaze who does the most brooding. [[spoiler: The dynamic changes even more when it turns romantic as they help the other through their trauma and become more balanced.]]
