* Sanae Ebato of ''Manga/ScumsWish'' is pursued by her [[KissingCousins cousin Atsuya,]] despite outright stating she has no interest in men, and being generally [[AbhorrentAdmirer creeped out]] by his attempts. Atsuya, for his part, seems to be aiming for her to concede IfItsYouItsOkay.

* In the female protagonist's route in ''VideoGame/Persona3Portable,'' the later ranks of Aigis's Social Link have her lamenting that she's not male and, between that and being a robot, is thus not an ideal love interest for the heroine. Exactly ''how'' incompatible she is with the heroine's orientation is to some degree open-ended, but there are no opportunities for the heroine to actively reciprocate her feelings, making it fall more or less into this trope.

* On ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', Elaine once dealt with a crush on a gay man after being his [[TheBeard beard]] for a night. Unlike most examples here, she actually succeeded in getting him to switch teams... but only temporarily.
-->'''Jerry:''' He went ''back''? Whaddaya mean he went back?\\
'''Elaine:''' He went back.\\
'''Jerry:''' I don't understand, you were having such a great time! The sex! The shopping!\\
'''Elaine:''' ''[sigh]'' Well, here's the thing: Being a woman, I really only have access to the, um... "equipment"... what, 30, 45 minutes a week? And that's on a ''good'' week! How can I be expected to have the same expertise as people who ''own'' this equipment, and have access to it 24 hours a ''day'', their entire lives?\\
'''Jerry:''' You can't. That's why they lose very few players.

A character has an Incompatible Orientation when they are coveted by [[AllLoveIsUnrequited someone who can]] [[LoveHurts never have them]], because they just don't swing that way. They can be any character who has an incompatible sexual orientation to their admirer--a staight person with a same-gender admirer, a gay person with an opposite gender admirer, or an {{asexual}} person with an admirer of any gender.

Added DiffLines:

* Can happen between members of the FurryFandom: one, a "light" fur who enjoys the fandom for fun but prefers their romantic partners to be of their own species, develops a crush on a fellow fur who's [[{{Yiff}} only interested in anthropomorphic animals]] and thinks HumansAreUgly.
* Hand-raised birds often imprint on humans. When they get older, hormones drive them to take a mate, but as they believe themselves to be humans, their desired mate is usually their caretaker (who is usually not interested in birds that way). This can prove problematic if the bird in question is intended to be used for breeding, as they show no interest in mates they could produce offspring with - even if their intended mate puts on a dramatic courtship display. Other problems can arise, too, as the bird becomes increasingly frustrated that their attempts at pairing with a human aren't working; they may become aggressive to their caretaker ("How dare you spurn me!") or to others the bird perceives as competition.
