Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/GhostsOfEvangelion'':
** Shinji and Asuka argue a lot… but they are unable to live without each other. It was repeatedly shown, stated and ultimately and literally proved: Shinji died barely three days after his wife.
** In a discarded chapter Asuka told Misato that Shinji could survive without her, but the opposite isn't true.
** When Asuka has to babysit Ryuko for first time she is gloomy because Shinji is in a business trip. She mutters that he usually pisses her off, but when he is gone she feels very lonely.
--->'''Asuka:''' (shrugging) I can barely stand that idiot most days, but when he's gone…
** When [[spoiler:Asuka passes away in 2080, Shinji dies shortly after]]. Sixty-five years of arguments, fights and reconciliations and he could not live three days without her.

* In ''Manga/XXXHolic'', Watanuki is shown to normally get extremely frustrated with Yuuko, and keeps yelling that he can't ''stand'' the way she is. And ''then''... [[spoiler: she disappears]], and he completely breaks down, tears and all, revealing exactly ''how'' important Yuko had become to him. This results in him getting extremely depressed, and making a pact to [[spoiler: wait for her in the shop forever, never aging, and never being able to leave, until she comes back to him. He even takes on some her traits like smoking from her pipe, and dressing in her extravagant clothes, as if he's trying to cling onto whatever he's got left of her]]. Let's just say that [[HoYay Doumeki]] is ''not'' pleased to hear this...

* In ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross]]'' / ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'', Lisa Hayes ''despises'' cadet pilot Rick Hunter, and he returns her contempt...yet when she thinks for a moment he was killed in a Veritech hit, she panics, and later when she's threatened by a Zentraedi, Rick berserks. When Cadet Hunter becomes Lt. Hunter and then begins to rise up the ranks, the tension gets worse because they're always encountering each other...and discovering to their dismay that they work well together. Pretty much everybody that knew them saw what was happening before they did, though.

* Scrooge (''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'') and Darkwing (''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'') both have this relationship with Launchpad [=McQuack=]. Both initially start working with him just because they need a pilot[[note]]"Launchpad's First Crash" and "Darkly Dawns the Duck", respectively[[/note]] and are exasperated by his CloudCuckoolander side. But whenever Launchpad leaves (even if they ''told'' him to leave) or some kind of danger threatens to take him away from them, they don't like it at all. Launchpad is not an example as he rarely gets annoyed with either of his bosses[=/=]friends.
