* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' is an odd example. The show does literally everything in its power to treat Yuuri and Victor as the OfficialCouple, up and to [[spoiler: giving them a BigDamnKiss in Episode 7, and getting engaged three episodes later]]...except for actually acknowledging it in the dialogue. Whenever that point comes up, they either dance around the subject, implicitly discuss it or only talk about Victor's relationship as Yuuri's couch. This leads to some rather odd circumstances, such as [[spoiler:the two sharing a romantic kiss on live TV]], an act which would have major impact on how they're viewed and treated, being barely acknowledged after it happens. This has become a [[BrokenBase divisive point]] among critics.

* Danielle Moonstar and Rahne Sinclair of the original ''ComicBook/NewMutants'' (198x to present). No resolution after more than twenty years of dancing around the subject. It could be dismissed as a school crush, but these two were in each other's heads, by empathic link. Two bodies, one mind. At least when a halfway competent writer was writing them. Although in the early issues Rahne had a crush on Sam, at least until he got hooked up with Lila Cheney.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', within minutes of Karolina Dean being confirmed as a lesbian, she was suddenly given a genderfluid fiancee and [[PutOnABus put on a spaceship]] to go marry them, and didn't return until almost a year later. Almost nothing was shown of their courtship or their aborted wedding, and when they returned, there were very few displays of affection between them.

* Despite the [[Carmilla source material]] she's based off of, Carmilla from Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, is depicted as being heterosexual, with her literary love-interest being relegated to adopted daughter.

** Tara and Willow were on the line between this and ButNotTooGay or RomanticTwoGirlFriendship originally, with a lot of their relationship confined to innuendo and implications. The first character to recognize their relationship was Faith, who blithely said to Tara "Willow's not [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything driving stick]] anymore" and cruelly mentioned Willow's former relationship with Oz. They only had their first kiss after one and a half seasons (while Buffy and Angel/Riley have plenty of loud make-outs and simulated sex on screen) in a scene that had to comply with a ridiculous amount of restrictions. When the show switched networks the couple became a lot more touchy-feely.

* WordOfGod has always had interesting things to say about the antagonists Gulcasa and Nessiah in ''YggdraUnion'', claiming that Gulcasa trusts Nessiah more than anyone else and that the two are closer than anyone else in the Imperial Army. The issue is resolved in this particular game by never having them both onscreen at the same time, although Nessiah (a strict user of {{keigo}}) is shown to be [[FirstNameBasis on first-name, no-suffix basis]] with Gulcasa regardless. Three years after ''YggdraUnion'' was released, ''YggdraUnison'' came out, which allows everyone to interact with everyone--and in Nessiah's route, where he's portrayed as a VillainBallMagnet hated by almost the entire cast, nary a conversation between Gulcasa and Nessiah goes by without some form of playful flirting being exchanged. ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'', in which Gulcasa is the protagonist, has their relationship finally graduate into ButNotTooGay and spent its quota of subtext on the metaphorical equivalent of TheirFirstTime under [[MateOrDie extenuating]] [[SexAsRiteOfPassage and symbolic]] circumstances.

* Believe it or not, there is at least one ComicBook/ChickTract(!) that seems to channel this in a way that all but must have been deliberate. In [[http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/0079/0079_01.asp "The Letter"]], the main character is an upper-class liberal woman who considers herself a Christian, but is very upset when a street preacher questions her commitment. We later see that she is unmarried, and has another woman's photo on her nightstand, with a handwritten dedication from her "best friend" Frances. The bulk of the story then consists of a dream, in which she receives a [[OminousMessageFromTheFuture letter from the future]] by Frances. The letter reminisces about their very close friendship, when they "walked together by day and night": "I called you my friend in life, and I trusted you in joy and strife," and so it goes. While nothing is spelled out, the subtext appears rather obvious. And then comes TheReveal: because her Christian friend did not warn her of what are the wages of sin, Frances of the dream is now ''in hell'', ending the letter on an anguished note. The protagonist, once awake, takes the warning seriously, and eventually decides to try to "save" her friend by converting her, "even if it costs our friendship." [[spoiler: [[YouAreTooLate But not]] [[DownerEnding quickly enough]]]].

* Kurogane and Fai from ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' are ''probably'' an official couple. But the [[Creator/{{CLAMP}} Sadistic Lady Mangaka]] being who they are, and the fact that Tsubasa is a shonen manga, we never found out for sure.

* Similar to ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'', ''VideoGame/MagiciansQuestMysteriousTimes''' GayOption is referred to as "Becoming Best Friends" with someone. You can reach a level where others describe the relationship as "bound by a strong connection". This is despite the fact that the game has an openly gay character, and it's exactly the same as dating (HoYay and all).
