** Some of the more cohesive filler arcs during the gap between the end of Part 1 and beginning of Shippuden also brought this into play. This adds two female daimyos, a handful of kunoichi, and one girl with [[FishPeople a bad skin condition]] to Naruto's roster. Of these, exactly one has appeared as a background character since then and she was rooting for [[HeroOfAnotherStory Gaara]].

** More like Girl of the ''Movie'' as the movies seem to love this trope. Naruto's had at least one older woman giving him a kiss, a DamselInDistress literally offering to have his babies (which, due to the way she phrased it, Naruto unwittingly accepts), and in the second Shipuuden movie he ends up with the current girl clutching him to her chest (it would be MarshmallowHell if she had bigger... tracts of land) while tearfully claiming that she'd never leave him... Being non-canonical of course, not one of them ever shows up again.

** Subverted in ''[[Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie The Last]]'', which Kishimoto confirmed to be canon. The film is a bridge between the second-to-last chapter and the DistantFinale epilogue, so the "girl" of the movie is also one of the main love interests and the one Naruto ultimately ends up with in the end: [[spoiler:Hinata]]. The movie is a romantic resolution, a tale of how the two fell in love.

* Subverted throughout the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime, as Brock generally never has even a slim chance of actually getting the girl. There have been some ''very'' rare instances of girls actually being interested in Brock, but they always go their separate ways by the end of the episode, anyway. Also subverted in that half those girls are either Nurse Joy or Officer Jenny, [[InexplicablyidenticalIndividuals who all look/sound/act the same.]]

* Played with in ''Series/TheMonkees'' fanfic "Take A giant Step Outside Your Mind". Davy, who usually had a different girlfriend every episode (and often had one girlfriend at the beginning of an episode and a different one by the end!) doesn't have a girlfriend at all, but both Micky and Mike have girlfriends.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Bart and Lisa have occasional love interests, or at least someone romantically interested in them. In Lisa's case, for example, there's Nelson Muntz, Colin from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie'', Thelonious from "Trilogy of Error" ("The esoteric appeal is worth the beatings"), and even [[TheDitz Ralph Wiggum]]. In Bart's case, there's Jessica Lovejoy, Laura Powers, Gina, Nikki, and Mary Spuckler.

** Completely averted in [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog SEGA's Sonic]] for obvious reasons, where he has best-friend of the week instead. However, depending on how you look at it, some of [[VideoGame/SonicRush them]] [[VideoGame/SoniCD are]] [[ShipTease somewhat played straight]]. Occasionally, the 'girl of the week' part was given to [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 Knuckles]] [[FoeYay of]] [[VideoGame/SonicChronicles all]] [[ThereIsAnother people]].
