* ''ComicStrip/Peanuts'' has Charlie Brown's devoted love for Joe Shlabotnik, a baseball player who keeps getting bumped from the major to minor leagues before finally retiring (and working at a car wash). Naturally, his continual attempts to get Shlabotnik merchandise--let alone meet the man in person--[[FailureIsTheOnlyOption are about as successful as Shlabotnik's career]].

* In ''DeadmanWonderland'', Senji (AKA Crow) is shown to take a huge liking to Ganta (partly because Ganta defeated him, but that was mostly by a fluke), even though Ganta showed himself as being quite a coward and weakling.

* Meiling of ''CardcaptorSakura'' acted as such to TheRival Syaoran. While Syaoran wasn't exactly undermined by the rest of the cast (especially not [[AllLovingHero Sakura]] herself), he was the ButtMonkey and an unofficial candidate for Master of the Cards with the rest of the band rooting for Sakura. Meiling spent the entire first arc rooting for Syaoran and trying to help him capture the Clow Cards.

* Walter from ''Film/TheMuppets'' is the muppet personification of this trope. He loves TheMuppets regardless if they have been out of the loop for 30 years and has an unbridled admiration for them. Case in point: he finds ''[[SoUnfunnyItsFunny Fozzie Bear]]'' genuinely funny.
