* In ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'', when Asuka insinuates that he and Rei are dating, Shinji replies that they're just friends. Shinji thinks to himself that it might be not entirely true, since whatever relationship Rei and him have is more complex and complicated than that, but he reasons that it is about as close to a coherent explanation he can get (seeing how there is so much about Rei he is nowhere close to understanding himself) and believes that, as such, it suffices as a description.

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'': Finn and Flame Princess following their breakup in ''Fire & Ice''. Partly due to the fact she now has to rule a kingdom which she acquired following a coup on her father. Though mostly because she still has some issues to work through. Finn doesn't take the hint after they break up, resulted in a DownerEnding where he gets a ShipSinking as she hooks up with [[spoiler:Cinnamon Bun]].

** ''Fanfic/TheElementsOfFriendship'': During Book I, Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy get StrangledByTheRedString and become engaged. By the time of Book IS (1.5), they realize that they jumped into things out of fear over [=NightMare=] Moon's conquest of Equestria, and that they're actually better off as friends, so they call off the wedding.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', Star and Marco's 2nd favorite song by [[FakeBand Love Sentence]] is called Just Friends. Neither seems to notice how perfectly the lyrics describe their own relationship.
--> I didn't mean to hurt you
--> You didn't have a clue
--> So you went out and got busy
--> And found somebody new, new, new

* In ''Film/{{On a Clear Day You Can See Forever}}'', Tad Pringle (played by 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."

* Wrestling/TripleH, Wrestling/KurtAngle and Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon name dropped the trope several times after Triple H became jealous of the attention Kurt and Stephanie were paying each other as Kurt kept saving Stephanie from various attacks. Being ProfessionalWrestling of course, it resulted in a triple threat match with TheRock for the WWF Championship, at Summerslam in 2000. The storyline collapsed eventually when Triple H played his real-life creative control card and nixed the planned ending where Steph would leave H for Angle.

* InspectorLynley and [[TheNotLoveInterest his partner]] Sergeant Havers are this. Really. Even though they've both called each other their reason to get up in the morning. And even though he turned up at her flat at midnight to tell her that he wasn't sure [[spoiler:he had ''ever really loved his wife'']], something he'd never talked to ''anyone'' about before. Swear to God, [[BlatantLies they're just friends]]!
* ''Series/ICarly'': Freddie has had a crush on Carly for his entire adolescent life, being in LoveAtFirstSight. Carly initially wants to stay as just friends. Freddie grows up physically and emotionally in Season 2 and 3, into an mature and sensitive young man, and it appears Carly is beginning to realize feelings for him. Also an example of an OfficialCouple (Albeit temporarily).
