* In ''Film/{{On a Clear Day You Can See Forever}}'', Tad Pringle (played by Creator/JackNicholson) is utterly in love with Daisy Gamble (played by BarbraStreisand) and even declares outright that he'd be better for her than any of the men she's been seeing; unfortunately for him, she considers him her best friend, and only her best friend. The fact that he's ''technically'' also her step-brother (their parents married after both Tad and Daisy were adults) doesn't help his case much, despite his pointing out that "We're only related through marriage."

** Xander and Buffy have the unrequited form of this (Xander towards Buffy). For the first season, Buffy is [[ObliviousToLove blissfully unaware]] of Xander's affections towards her, just as Xander is in turn unaware of Willow's affections towards him. This becomes more complicated in the second season, with Buffy toying with Xander to [[OperationJealousy piss off Angel]] at least once (getting her [[WhatTheHellHero called out]] by ''[[TheLibby Cordelia]]'', of all people). Their friendship eventually norms out over time, though as late as the 6th season, it's still clear that he's got feelings towards her, but has accepted that it will never work between them.
** Also, Buffy pulls this with Angel (and later [[spoiler: Spike]]) after their respective breakups. Nobody buys it.

* Hakuya from ''Manga/KokuhakuGame'' harshly claims to be this with Kimidori in chapter 2. Ayako and Akame start doubting it in the very next chapter.

* In Creator/AAPessimal's ''{{Discworld}}'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12321109/30/Gap-Year-Adventures Gap Year adventures]]'', one of the spurs behind Mariella Smith-Rhodes wanting to leave Ankh-Morpork and go off adventuring is the realisation that fellow graduate [[NiceGuy Timothy Bellamy]] is hopelessly in love with her. Mariella only sees this as a Just friend thing and she's stuck for a way to let him down gently. So she does what any rational girl would do - which is to run away. But while touring Klatch and Howondaland, she meets ''another'' fellow student. Who she has seen for the previous seven years as brash, loud, abrasive and stupid and a reminder of why she left [[UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica home]] in the first place. He's in love with her too. Mariella is reluctantly shifted from seeing him as an AbhorrentAdmirer to a position of Just Friends and at the end of the story is wavering on giving him a try.[[note]]The young idiot matures and changes as a result of his own misadventures and near-death experiences[[/note]] If only to keep her family happy.

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'': Barry Allen and Iris West. Barry has been in love with Iris for years, and it's been confirmed that Iris has been in love with him for just as long. Unfortunately, Iris was also completely oblivious to not only Barry's feelings, but her own. Not helping the situation is that the two are best friends that are so close that many can tell how they really feel about each other, and/or assume they're already a couple. Eventually, after finally confessing to Iris, Barry decides to no longer wait for her and tries to move on with Linda Park and (more successfully) Patty Spivot, while Iris continues to deny her feelings for Barry even though the only person she was really fooling was herself. It isn't until late Season 2 that they finally decide to do something about the massive amounts of UnresolvedSexualTension between them.
