* A RomanticTwoGirlFriendship type one happens in ''YoureUnderArrest''. During the "Bike Troopers" episode, Miyuki plays this up when it comes to her best friend being welcomed into another cop group. Due to their LesYay ridden relationship it was probably written as a "DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything?" type episode.

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', Jaune Arc [[HopelessSuitor obliviously chases after Weiss]] and is seemingly [[ObliviousToLove unaware of Pyrrha's feelings for him]]. Despite her obvious reluctance, Pyrrha encourages him to continue courting Weiss.
** And later on, after seeing Weiss ask Neptune to a dance and learning that he turned her down because he was embarrassed about not being able to dance, Jaune encourages him to go talk to her and be honest, saying that it would make her night.
* In ''Literature/{{Twig}}'', Sylvester and Mary have great chemistry and care a lot for one another, but Sylvester acts deliberately ObliviousToLove, because he knows that Mary also likes Gordon, a MixAndMatchMan who is steadily deteriorating, and neither of them want Gordon to die before Mary can tell him.
** Later, Sylvester and Lillian, who have entered a mutually affectionate relationship, decide to break up for the sake of Lillian's career ambitions-as Sylvester is a TykeBomb LivingWeapon, Lillian having a romantic attachment to him doesn't go over well with her superiors and both of them value her ambitions over their happiness.

* ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' gets some of this from both Kim and Knives, during the last book. How much Kim is still in love with him is up for debate, but her response to him is that he should seek out Ramona. Knives less so (than in the film), but she's still realized whatever she felt for Scott, Scott isn't her true love.

** Tim gracefully lets go of Dawn in the Christmas Special, but gives her some words of encouragement. This finally compels Dawn to ditch her unsympathetic fiancee and passionately kiss Tim.
*** Pam does something similar for Jim in the American version. He drops a promotion in New York just to take her out to dinner.
** For the first two seasons, Jim tries to be this with Pam, but ultimately fails due to [[RomanticFalseLead Roy's]] poor treatment of Pam (i.e. he'd probably be happy that she's happy, except she isn't happy).
*** Ultimately subverted when Jim confesses his love for Pam and kisses her. A selfish moment on his part, but it does coax Pam out of her shell.

* In the U.S. version of ''Series/QueerAsFolk'', Brian refuses to try to dissuade Justin from leaving him for Ethan, but at the same time continues to lend Justin money for college and pushes him to keep working on his comic with Michael. He even punches Michael when Michael attempts to take Brian's side in the split. Of course, Brian still can't tell Justin he loves him.
** The platonic(ish--more so in the US version) variation occurs in both the UK and US series', when Brian/Stuart outs Michael/Vince in order to piss him off enough to make him leave, because he thinks he's holding Michael/Vince back and preventing him from finding true happiness with David/Cameron. (lol, David Cameron)
* This is somewhat subverted in ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' in the episode "Birthright" with a woman and a little girl. [[spoiler:The little girl is the woman's biological daughter. As Novak practically harasses the little girl on the stand, the little girl denies that the woman is her biological mother and cries for the mother that raised her. In the end, the woman loves her "daughter" too much to see her upset so, she quits fighting for the custody of the little girl and moves out of New York]]. It was a pretty upsetting episode.

** Played for even more drama (whether romantic or platonic is up for debate, with WordOfGod offering contradictory views) in Series 9 when [[spoiler: Clara is killed, but the Doctor breaks the laws of time to extract her from the moment before her death after spending 4.5 billion years formulating a plan to do so out of grief for her loss. Knowing that the Time Lords will find her if she has any memories of the Doctor, the Doctor plans to [[MindRape erase her memories of him]] and leave her somewhere safe on earth, never to encounter him again. Ultimately, this doesn't go as planned and the Doctor accepts the MindRape upon himself, allowing Clara to live as long as she wants, albeit without him by her side.]]

* On ''Series/{{Merlin}}'', both Lancelot and Arthur reveal to Merlin in separate conversations that all they want for Guinevere is her happiness. It's also something of a {{subversion}}, since between the two of them, the actions they take to secure her happiness usually end with her in tears.
* ''DowntonAbbey'' does this with the Mary-Matthew-Lavinia triangle. Initially, Mary supports Matthew's relationship with Lavinia for this reason, despite still being in love with him. At the end of series two, after [[spoiler:seeing Matthew and Mary kiss and hearing that Violet asked Matthew to marry Mary]], Lavinia tries to convince him to go back to Mary in the belief he'll be happier that way. [[spoiler:Then she [[DeathOfTheHypotenuse dies of Spanish flu]] before he can argue with her]].
