* ''OutlawStar'' had one TearJerker of an example, which is impressive, since it was also a PuppyLove. A girl Jim meets and falls for turns out to be the pilot of the ship sent to kill them - but neither ever realizes the other's identity, and both go into combat looking forward to their date. After the fight, Jim doesn't know why she didn't come...

Added namespaces.
* ''BasicInstinct'' is all about this trope. * The Al Pacino/Ellen Barkin film, 'SeaOfLove', is of the falsely accused variety.

* Famously, in ''I, the Jury'' MikeHammer ends up [[spoiler:revenge-killing]] the ([[spoiler:very guilty]]) woman he was all ready to settle down with. This is probably the case that turned him from an ordinary PrivateDetective into the dispenser of brutal justice we all know and love.

* A [[GrayAndGreyMorality slightly weird]] GenderFlip in ''DarkerThanBlack'': HeroAntagonist police chief Kirihara falls for [[AntiHero Hei]] in his NiceGuy civilian persona, not realizing that "Li" is actually the superpowered assassin she's been chasing. However, she probably ''should'' have, seeing as she connected the two in episode 18 and got quite a few hints later during the most-of-a-day they were [[ShipTease hanging out together]]. [[spoiler:Since she did eventually figure it out, she probably realized it earlier but didn't want to acknowledge it.]]

Removing non-example. Adding examples.
** Averted in "Mr. Monk and the Blackout"; Monk goes on a date with a woman who works at the power plant where the blackout started, but she's never a suspect, though she does give him a clue to the criminal's identity.
to:
** Averted Played with in "Mr. Monk Falls In Love," where the woman Monk falls for is accused of the murder, and Monk refuses to believe her guilt no matter how much the evidence piles up. While it first appears to be setting up the typical situation where she betrays him, ultimately the episode inverts the "accuses her incorrectly and loses her love" formula: the actual murderer was the woman's mother, who she was covering for - by accusing the correct murderer, Monk loses her anyway. ** Monk also plays the basic formula non-romantically several times: "Mr. Monk Makes a Friend" and "Mr. Monk and the Blackout"; Monk goes on a date with a woman who works at Lady Next Door" play the power plant where "guilty, but detective is blinded until it is too late" and "innocent, and detective accuses too early" formulas entirely straight respectively, except the blackout started, but she's never a suspect, though she does give him a clue to the criminal's identity.relationships in question aren't romantic in nature (being friendship and ParentalSubstitute, respectively).

Now and then a detective will be strongly attracted to someone connected with a crime. She (it's usually a woman) may at some point in the episode become the Main/DistressedDamsel, but if not, she's either the perp or will be suspected of being the perp. If she did it, the detective will be reluctant to believe that she's capable of such a thing until the evidence is completely damning; if she's a Main/RedHerring, the detective will confront her prematurely and lose any chance of a romance with her. Sometimes overlaps with Main/FemmeFatale, but more often she's perfectly nice and sweet until she turns around and holds the detective at gunpoint.
