* In ''Manga/{{Nisekoi}}'', the main character Raku Ichijou wears a pendant with a lock from the time he was 5 years old. He spent summer playing with his first love and when they had to say goodbye, they promised to each other that when they meet again when they're grown up, they will open the pendant using her key and get married. Things get complicated because three different girls with keys appear and they all have a vague memory of knowing Raku when they were little and making some sort of promise with him, but Raku is sure he made the promise to only one girl. After many turns around the issue, the whole thing is made clear: [[spoiler:Chitoge was the one who came up with the idea of the pendant and the keys from a children's book she liked and she wanted to make the marriage promise with Raku. However, after finding out Raku and their friend Kosaki liked each other, she decided to back out and let them make the promise together instead.]]

However, when all three finally remember what's going on, Raku has moved on from liking Onodera and decides the promise isn't what's most important anymore.]]

* ''FireEmblem 7'' (the first released Stateside on GBA) has Priscilla and Raven, which looks kinda cute until you realize that they're [[BrotherSisterIncest siblings]].
** These also happen in supports, if you squint. One example from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones''. Note that these two could be anywhere from the age of [[ChildSoldiers 12- 15 at the time of gameplay]]:

** The teenaged [[NaiveEverygirl Amelia]] can give similar promises to either
of [[ChildSoldiers 12- 15 at the time of gameplay]]:her similarly-aged prospect bpyfriends, [[RelationshipUpgrade in their A Supports]]: she can promise [[HotBlooded Ross]] to help him DoomedHometown, tell [[ChildMage Ewan]] that they'll go WalkingTheEarth together, and give [[NiceGuy Franz]] a DeclarationOfProtection that he reciprocates:



--> '''[[NaiveEverygirl Amelia:]]''' ...let me be your shield to protect you...

to:

--> '''[[NaiveEverygirl Amelia:]]''' ...'''Amelia:''' ...let me be your shield to protect you...



** Amelia's other two romantic endings also involve said promises: [[HotBlooded Ross]] will ask her to help him reconstruct his DoomedHometown and settle down with him, [[ChildMage Ewan]] will promise to take her with him as he goes WalkingTheEarth. Since they also happen at the A support time, the endings will have Amelia accept and live happily with any of her three possible husbands.

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', Female Kana (anywhere around 10 to 13) and Kiragi (probably just a little older) can make one if they reach a S support.

* ''Disney/BrotherBear 2'' is based on an [[AccidentalMarriage accidental]] version--as children, Kenai gave a necklace to his friend, Nita, and the two swore to be best friends forever, despite living in different villages. Apparently the spirits considered them betrothed now, because years later they interrupt Nita's wedding, and won't allow the new marriage unless she tracks down Kenai and performs a ritual to annul the agreement. (They don't particularly care that Kenai is no longer human.)

* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'', Nunnally and Euphemia have a good old laugh when they remember the times they fought as children over who would get to marry Lelouch. Considering they are, respectively, his sister and his half-sister, and further considering he has a metric ton of SubText with Nunnally (lampshaded more than once) and actually calls Euphemia his 'first love', it's probably for the best that they never mention this conversation to him.
