* ''Literature/{{Forbidden}}'': Maya and Lochan have this dynamic. They share the burden of taking care of their family (which is the [[BrotherSisterIncest same family]]) and so they're both somewhat brooding, but Lochan has the additional burden of social anxiety, and Maya help ease that.

** A straighter example would be [[HurtingHero Shinji Ikari]] and [[spoiler: the second]] [[ShyBlueHairedGirl Rei Ayanami]], even more so in the ''[[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Rebuild]]'' version, with the variation that he had to [[DefrostingTheIceQueen defrost]] [[SugarAndIcePersonality her]] first to earn her gentleness and devotion. Of course, with this being [[MindScrew Evangelion]], [[StarCrossedLovers things]] [[IncestIsRelative get]] [[GoMadfromTheRevelation very]] [[ApocalypseMaiden ugly]] [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt very]] [[TearJerker fast]] after a [[HopeSpot brief period of happiness]] in episodes 15 to 18/the first two thirds of the second ''Rebuild'' movie.

There are times where the dynamics is Brooding Girl, and Gentle Boy instead since they are afterall, Mirrors of each other.

** Later, Clara Oswald has this effect on both the Eleventh Doctor (when an incarnation of Clara coaxes a brooding Eleven out of self-imposed retirement) and the Twelfth (where Clara "prime" becomes his MoralityChain and TheHeart of their relationship).

* Music/PeterGabriel and Music/KateBush's duet, ''Don't Give Up'' could be seen as this trope. Gabriel's character is a serially unemployed man and ex-soldier whose home has been [[DoomedHometown destroyed]] (WordOfGod say's it's set during the Dust Bowl/Depression era), edging towards suicide, and Bush sings wispy, gentle words of encouragement. It's set to a vaguely African, vaguely synth-pop beat. (It's also SugarWiki/BetterThanItSounds.

Added DiffLines:

* Gender-flipped and {{zig zagged}} with Arnold and Helga in ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold''. Helga is a BrokenBird who acts as a bully to hide her insecurities and vulnerable side; Arnold is an AllLovingHero who gives emotional advice and support to others (including Helga) when they are in some personal crisis. However, because the former acts as if she hates the latter, they hardly make any development in their relationship resulting in more friction.
