* [[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates]] allows the player to customize the main character (or Avatar) and marry another character. One such option, for a male avatar, is Felicia, a klutzy and accident-prone maid. In the S-Rank Support conversation with her, Felicia will admit that she loves the Avatar, but would never expect him to feel the same way because he grew up as a Nohrian Prince and royalty just wouldn't feel that way about one of their own maids. She's very surprised and very happy when the Avatar says he loves her, too.

** Extremely justified in that he's just a common cheesemaker's-apprentice-turned-actor, and she turns out to be a noble who's also the daughter of one of the most famous heroes on the entire continent.

* In ''Manga/KannazukiNoMiko'', Himeko is positively puzzled about what Chikane sees in an "[[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent ordinary girl]]" like her. The answer Chikane eventually gives (which is probably the most romantic declaration of love in anime) is "If I am the moon, then you are my sun: I may be beautiful and mysterious but I can only shine with your reflected light." Bonus points for this explanation being entirely consistent with the metaphysical laws of their universe.
** The reader can also see that Himeko is far less...obsessive than most of Chikane's admirers, and her presence helps Chikane not to brood so much.

* Shuya from ''Manga/BattleRoyale'' had this kind of reaction when he found that Noriko had always harbored a crush on him, and had always been watching him. He acts completely shocked, despite how it's later revealed that [[ChickMagnet pretty much half the girls in class harbored crushes on him]].

** Heresy ! It's from Keith Giffen's Mackere. The dialogue seems even stupider when flash-backs show that Noriko used to hang out with Shuya and his friends. It doesn't happen in the original manga. Shuya still has this kind of attitude towards every girl that loves him, however, but that's rather because he's an IdiotHero.
*** Yuuchiro's crush on Mitsuko Soma may count as well, seeing how he admits "having been admiring her from afar for quite some time..."
* This is pretty much how Sawako from ''KimiNiTodoke'' acts all the time.

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', Kaiden has this attitude towards [[GayOption male Shepard]], neatly explaining why he wasn't a romance option in the first game; it didn't even occur to him to think of the possibility until Shepard [[spoiler:let Ashley die to save Kaidan's life]], but circumstances kept them from addressing the subject.

* ''Webcomic/{{Megatokyo}}'': A major stumbling block in [[Adorkable Piro]] and [[WideEyedIdealist Kimiko's]] relationship, for both of them. Piro can't believe that a pretty girl like Kimiko would ever notice him, while Kimiko is bewildered that Piro isn't turned off by her quirks and hectic work life. To top it off, both of them are ''majorly'' ObliviousToLove. It takes the combined force of nearly the entire cast to get them together.

* This is the biggest reason why ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' was unable to notice [[PatientChildhoodLoveInterest Hinata]]'s [[EveryoneCanSeeIt feelings]] for him, in a gender inversion. Naruto's depressing childhood instilled in him a [[HeroicSelfDeprecation lack of self-worth]] that he hid behind bravado and arrogance when he was younger. He never thought someone as beautiful and as kind as Hinata would ever notice him. [[spoiler:It also prevented him from noticing his own feelings for Hinata -- when he does understand]] in ''[[Film/Naruto7TheLast The Last]]'', is when [[spoiler:this trope is exemplified full force]].

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePeanutsMovie'': [[spoiler: Charlie Brown spends the entire movie trying to reinvent himself in order to get the attention of the Little Red-Haired Girl, but all his efforts are derailed repeatedly by either his own sense of morality or his perpetual streak of bad luck. When she volunteers to be his summer pen-pal, he is convinced that it's only out of pity that she would do so, and that she sees him as a "wishy-washy, insecure failure". When he finally gets the courage to talk to her and ask why she volunteered, her response is basically what Linus told him minutes before: that he's a good person and she genuinely likes him.]]
