* ''Series/{{Supergirl 2015}}'': Winn is initially this to Kara, bordering on StalkerWithACrush, as he is obsessively helpful and even plays MissionControl when she first starts being a superhero. Kara thinks they're BetterAsFriends. Winn eventually comes to agree with her, growing out of the archetype a bit and giving up any attempts to initiate a romance with her. His later relationships with other women are all founded on him being a NiceGuy, but not a DoggedNiceGuy.

* Stalwart from ''[[WhateleyUniverse Whateley Academy]]''. He's first seen declaring his true love for protagonist Fey, who then uses her powers to magically throw him across the campus quad. But Stalwart is a nice guy and keeps trying, almost to the point of becoming a StalkerWithACrush. His persistence is rewarded when he becomes the only thing that stops a superpowered ninja from raping and killing Fey... and he almost dies from doing so. Fey heals him and ends up going on a date with him.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' towards Sakura, until this was finally {{Defied|Trope}} in the Five Kage Summit arc. In Chapter 469, Sakura gave him her [[NeverLiveItDown infamous]] [[FalseConfession fake love confession]], which she tried to pull off in the hopes that [[BreakHisHeartToSaveHim he would stop trying to save Sasuke for her]]. Naruto easily saw right through her, [[WhatTheHellHero called her out for lying]], [[ShipSinking rejected her outright]] by telling her that he '''hates''' people who lie to themselves, and told her that ThePromise he made to her in Part I was no longer the reason why he's still trying to save Sasuke; he has [[TrueCompanions his own reasons]] now. He later revealed to Sai in Chapter 474 that he ''knew'' [[SingleTargetSexuality she always loved Sasuke]]. As it turns out, [[{{Irony}} Naruto had been lying to himself about his own feelings for Sakura]], because he never actually loved her as anything more than [[LikeBrotherAndSister a close friend or older sister]]. Once he finally moved on from [[LovingAShadow his one-sided shallow crush on her]], he eventually fell in love with and got HappilyMarried to [[spoiler:[[OneTrueLove Hinata]]]].

* In ''VideoGame/Persona3 Portable'' as the Female Protagonist, there’s a particularly obsessive NPC you can encounter at the Club Escapade who periodically gives you rare items in the hopes that one day you will reciprocate his feelings for you. Nothing comes out of it, though.

* Deeply deconstructed with Lucas Goodwin in ''Series/HouseOfCardsUS''. Lucas is a bright reporter with a lots of promise and a good reputation. Then he meets Zoe Barnes and falls in love. He asked her out twice, but she blows him off both times. Meanwhile, she is having a sexual relationship with Frank Underwood, an ambitious political figure scheming to become President. Because she is also ambitious, she believes she can use him to expand her career. Once Frank is done using her, she gives Lucas a chance, but only because by then, she suspects Underwood might have committed murder and is using Lucas to help investigate. [[spoiler: This leads to Frank Underwood killing her, leaving love sick Goodwin devastated. He goes on a personal quest to try and expose Underwood, but because he has VillainWithGoodPublicity status, no one believes him. Eventually, he is setup by Underwood and thrown in prison. When he gets out, Frank Underwood is already President and more powerful than ever. He desperately ties again to expose him, but is once again rejected, leading him to [[SanitySlippage an assassination attempt]] which fails and ends his life. All this over a woman who really didn't love him.]]
