* Kissing each other on the lips was the formal way for communist leaders from different countries to greet each other on state visits in the former Eastern Bloc. Which led to the joke that after Erich Honecker ousted Walter Ulbricht from power in East Germany, Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev complained to foreign minister Andrey Gromyko: "It's not the same, Honecker seems like such a cold fish. Now, Ulbricht -- he could kiss!"

[[AC:RealLife]] * Kissing on the lips really isn't romantic in some cultures, and is only often a display of affection towards family or very close friends. An example of this are the Andamanese people, where kissing was only used to show affection towards children and had no sexual/romantic undertones. ** It used to be almost like a trend in certain parts of Germany for ''girls'' to kiss on the lips instead of the usual hug and kiss on the cheek. It seems to have passed lately, but even back then, nobody ever did the same with a girl and a guy while claiming it's not romantic. ** Also, if you kiss an aquaintance or friend on the mouth as a way of goodbye (or saying hello), prepare to get weird looks/beaten up/slapped. Even family members don't kiss each other on the mouth in most of Europe, people.

[[AC:{{VisualNovel}}]] * Happens at the end of Shin's good ending in {{VisualNovel/Morenatsu}}. Shin, who's half French, kisses the player character goodbye as he leaves town, to the shock of everyone else present. It's played with, however, since Shin actually knows exactly what he's doing; he and the player character are in a SecretRelationship, and Shin pretended it was this trope to deliberately screw with their friends' heads as a joke.
