Resistance to see a childhood friend as a potential ronantic partner is know as the "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westermarck_effect Westermarck effect]]", a theory that claims that people who grew up together before the age of 6 are likely to become hardwired to think about each other LikeBrotherAndSister. (Other studies question this on the basis that though few of the people they examined had major romantic relationships with childhood friends, many had crushes and romantic feelings that just didn't make it.)

*** The Female Avatar can pull this with her ForgottenChildhoodFriend Silas, and arguably with Jakob since he has been her BattleButler ever since they were children.

*** The Female Avatar can pull this with her ForgottenChildhoodFriend Silas, and arguably Silas or with Jakob since he has been Jakob, her BattleButler ever since they were children. The Male Avatar has either Felicia or Flora as candidates for this trope too, since they've been his {{ninja maid}}s from childhood.

* A childhood connection with the main winnable character is a staple of the ''TokimekiMemorial'' series. Whether the player character chooses to pursue a romance is up to the player; whether or not they ''succeed'' is up to how well the player understands the game.
** Possibly role-flipped in the first ''TokimekiMemorial'' game: it is likely for the ''player character'' to become unlucky when pursuing childhood friend Shiori Fujisaki, as she is actually one of the harder girls to win over (due to high stat requirements across the board). If you play the game the right way, you'll be victorious instead. -- except ''in Nijiiro no Seishun'' and ''Irodori no Love Song'' where Saki and Ayako are the respective heroines and main interest of the protagonist. all the other media treat the pairing as the GoldenEnding, including the ''Motto! Tokimeki Memorial'' Radio Drama series,
