* [[WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse Luna Loud]] surprised many fans by believing this trope about her crush Sam. She struggles most of the episode with confessing since she felt she wasn't cool enough for Sam before ultimately slipping a love note into Sam's [[spoiler: which is apparently short for "Samantha"]] locker. We don't get to see Sam's reaction though.

* This is the biggest reason why ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' was unable to notice [[EveryoneCanSeeIt Hinata's feelings]] for him, in a {{Gender Inverted|Trope}} example. Naruto's depressing childhood instilled in him a [[HeroicSelfDeprecation lack of self-worth]] that he hid behind bravado and arrogance when he was younger. It didn't help that almost all of the girls in his class--including [[{{Tsundere}} Sakura]], the object of his [[LovingAShadow one-sided shallow crush]] until [[ShipSinking Chapter 469]]--treated him horribly and turned their attention to [[TheRival Sasuke]], which made Naruto think that all girls are only interested in [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys guys like Sasuke]]. After Hinata confessed her love to him in the Invasion of Pain arc, Naruto was completely stunned, and even for a while afterwards he thought she meant [[LoveYouAndEverybody she loved him as a friend]]. However, as confirmed with his HeroicVow in ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'', he never thought someone [[NiceGirl as kind]] [[YamatoNadeshiko and beautiful]] as Hinata would genuinely [[WartsAndAll love him for him]]. [[spoiler:It also prevented him from recognizing his own feelings for her--and judging by the dialogue from the other characters in the [[WarArc Fourth Shinobi World War Arc]] and ''The Last'', it's heavily implied that Naruto ''has'' been in love with Hinata for a while. When he finally does understand in the movie, is when this trope is exemplified full force]].

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', Alistar has this kind of reaction if the PC begins a romance with him. He basically says that he's thrilled he has an amazing, beautiful woman as his girlfriend and can't believe his luck. Though still has no qualms about dumping her, [[spoiler:if he becomes King at the end.]]
** One of the player's possible responses when Leliana suggests becoming more than friends is this.
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', Fenris, Merrill, and Anders all have this reaction if Hawke expresses interest in them. All three of them are quite attractive in various ways, but have severe self-image issues thanks to being, respectively, an amnesiac ex-slave, an outcast [[BloodMagic blood mage]], and a rebellious HumanoidAbomination (that [[EnslavedElves elves]] and mages are both [[FantasticRacism oppressed minorities]] in the setting doesn't help anything either). Isabela is a variation; [[TheCasanova she's]] [[MsFanservice not surprised]] if you romance her, but she is surprised that you would want to be friends with her, especially [[spoiler:once it comes to light that she's responsible for the Qunari Crisis and you become the Champion of Kirkwall in ending it.]]

* In ''VideoGame/Persona3 [[UpdatedRerelease Portable]]'', both [[BadassLongcoat Shinjiro Aragaki]] and [[AdorablyPrecociousChild Ken Amada]] think that the Female Protagonist should spend time with other people and express surprise if she returns their feelings. Both of them have pretty good reasons behind it, though. Ken, being JustAKid is naturally surprised to find that his PrecociousCrush is mutual, while Shinjiro [[spoiler:knows that he doesn't have long to live and [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy knows it would only hurt her]]]], but [[ButIWouldReallyEnjoyIt can be persuaded if you're persistent]]. Ken, on the other hand, remains justifiably nervous.
* In ''VideoGame/Persona4 [[UpdatedReRelease Golden]]'', [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak Chie]] [[KickChick Satonaka]] makes a short but heartfelt speech on how it still amazes her that someone like the protagonist would ever love a girl, especially when he could have been dating the likes of [[YamatoNadeshiko Yukiko Amagi]], [[IdolSinger Rise]] [[{{Kawaiiko}} Kujikawa]] or [[KidDetective Naoto]] [[{{Bifauxnen}} Shirogane]] instead. Even before then, she repeatedly expresses surprise that [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon a boy would like a girl who is as tomboyish as she is]], and she herself considers the far more feminine Yukiko to be more of a womanly ideal.

Chihaya Mifune and Sadayo Kawakami will also be shocked if the protagonist chooses to romance them, since Chihaya is a self-described "country bumpkin" and Kawakami is his homeroom teacher.
