* 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.

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' has several examples of this; Erk and Serra in ''Blazing Sword'', Lalam and Percival in ''Sword of Seals'', and to an extent Rennac and L'Arachel in ''The Sacred Stones''. ([[spoiler: His single ending states that he tries to escape her service, but admittedly doesn't try very hard.]])

A development often used in [[ThePowerOfFriendship buddy]] films and [[PowerOfLove romantic]] comedy. One person, often a loner-type, is paired off with someone else against his/her will.

* 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.



* On an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' this is parodied when Yakko, Wakko and Dot tell their latest victim, who is begging them to leave, that he'll "be lonely when they're gone". Predictably, after they leave, the man bawls "I'm lonely!"

* The early ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' short "The Lonesome Mouse" has Tom getting evicted from the house. Jerry is initially delighted, but comes to realize that he's bored stiff without his adversary, and schemes to get him back in Mammy Two Shoes' good graces.
** Tom and Jerry are pretty much like this by default.
* In ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'', dispite being his friend, June seems to get a kick out of hurting or watching Henry get hurt. However, in an episode where he leaves the show, June finds herself crying over missing him.

* This sometimes comes up in ''DragonBall'' with Bulma and Vegeta. When they do talk to each other on screen all they'll do is argue. However, while Vegeta can be unbearable to be around sometimes. They always reconcile pretty quickly.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. So very very true with Shinji and Asuka. Up to the point that Shinji [[spoiler: ends the world]] when he discovers' [[spoiler: Unit 02, and probably Asuka's half-eaten corpses]] as he just arrived to try and save her. The series ends with [[spoiler: Shinji and Asuka looking out over a devastated earth, as the last two people in existence.]] Or maybe the first two.

* In ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'', Shinji and Asuka argued a lot... but when she was in a coma, Shinji thought that he didn't mind Asuka called him names because it meant she was fine.
-->A part of him thought it was ridiculous question—saying that he missed Asuka was like saying that he missed having a toothache. But another part, the part surprised at the look on her face earlier, the part that had pushed him into that tunnel when the Angel was descending into Central Dogma, knew that he did miss her, very badly.\\
Suddenly, even the silence reminded him she was gone.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'', Shinji is this to Asuka. Sometimes he drives her mad, and sometimes he makes her happier than nobody ever. In chapter 16:
-->"Sometimes you drive me nuts. But then you do something that changes my mind, like dancing wonderfully. I had a lot of fun tonight, Shinji."

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': When they met, Shinji and Asuka fought and argued for weeks. Soon it was evident, though, that they were unable to live without each other. When one of them was hurt, the other crumbled down.
