In several cases, a character will fake drowning, in an attempt to get an opportunity to kiss a certain someone. Usually, they'll either mess it up and actually come close to drowning, or wind up with the "wrong" person trying to resucitate them. In real life, this would never work. Lifeguards and other people trained in CPR are trained to look for signs of breathing before they ever begin. Further more, most carry a "Breath Barrier" which is designed to prevent the transfer of bodily liquids that could contain pathogens. Finally, if you are so determined to get that kiss that you legitimately stop breathing, well, [[TooDumbToLive we have tropes for that too]].

* In the ''Manga/LoveHina'' manga, the girls set up a situation for Shinobu to get a kiss of life from Keitaro, but she freaks out and accidently kicks him in the crotch before he can actually do it. Keitaro actually follows proper CPR procedure, i.e. tilting her head back and pinching her nose shut, which impresses the other girls but kills the "romantic" mood.

** [[Trope Namer]]: this is exactly what happens when Pacha attempts to revive an unconscious Kuzco (who, for good measure, had previously been transformed into a llama). When Pacha tries to explain the true nature of the situation, Kuzco refers to it as "[[YourLittleDismissiveDiminutive your little kiss of life]]" with a heavy sarcastic lilt.

* In an issue of ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'', Northstar gives CPR to the homophobic Paulie Provenazo, with whom he was paired, to all appearances, because Jean Grey hated them both. Paulie wasn't happy.

* X-Men: In one episode, Cyclops and Rogue were fighting a Sentinel; Cyclops was knocked unconscious and stopped breathing; Rogue realised she would have to give him CPR; as she was alternately blowing in his mouth and pumping his chest, she screamed, "Come ON, Scott! Make a girl HAPPY!" Almost as though they were having sex...

* In the third ''Film/DiaryOfAWimpyKid'' movie, Greg's brother Roderick pretends to be drowning in a pool in order to attract the attention of Heather Hills, who's acting as a lifeguard. However, since Heather is only doing it to look good on her college applications, she ignores him and a big burly guy jumps in to save Roderick and administer rescue breathing -- despite Roderick clearly being both conscious and breathing while he's doing it.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': During the final [[FinalBattle Ninja War]] when Naruto needed immediate emergency life support after the Nine Tails was removed from his body. Sakura the medical ninja does her job and gives him mouth to mouth (and literally reaching inside his body to start his heart) though the situation and [[https://31.media.tumblr.com/a36cd3f45be8825aab25d21fab84eabc/tumblr_inline_n0jmgczWJi1svc969.png Sakura's facial expression]] remove any romance about it. Still Sakura's FirstKiss and ''in manga'' it's the only other time Naruto is kissed by a woman (the first being Tsunade).
** During some actually entertaining {{Filler}}, Naruto tries to get Kakashi to perform CPR on him (while transformed into a unconscious hot girl) in attempt to get him to remove his mask and [[TheFaceless show his face for once]]. But Kakashi ''always wise'' and just carries the disguised Naruto to the hospital, forcing Naruto to reveal himself and try other crazy maneuvers to get him to show his features.

* Unique example in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Two Towers'' when Aragorn falls off a cliff after fighting the Warg Riders. Aragorn gets washed ashore and Arwen seemly appears, bending down, kissing life into him. It's more of a metaphysical moment as Arwen is projecting her spirit to revive Aragorn and is not actually there. (It's actually Aragorn's horse that gets him up, leading audiences to humorously believe it was the horse kissing him.)

* Film/It2017 unique example, [[spoiler: when Pennywise has captured Beverly but unable to eat her since she's [[ImNotAfraidOfYou not scared of him]], Pennywise furious decides to show her small glimpse of his [[EldritchAbomination true form]] aka the "''Dead Lights''". This hypnotizes Beverly and she's she goes into a trance, none of the boys can wake her up but Ben who deeply in love with her wakes Beverly up with a kiss. This quite symbolic as in Beverly's room a copy of the ''The Frog Prince'' and other fairy tales can be seen, signifying her romantic nature and this was the way either her or Ben believed she could be revived. It's also the ultimate sign despite Beverly having mutual feelings with Bill, Ben is her true LoveInterest]].
