* ''Webcomic/{{Avalon}}'' had two, [[spoiler:Joe & Helène, and Ceilidh and Phoebe. This second one become a rather large BaseBreaker for many fans, as there was little to no hint of it in the strip before the ScheduleSlip until the text summary that the author ended the comic with. The second one felt rather out of left field (perhaps to the point of Phillips' falling prey to PairTheSpares), while the first one was pretty obvious for quite some time.]]

Added DiffLines:

** RelationshipUpgrade as a GrandFinale is ridiculed by Kim and Ron in the show's third season, in a bit of LampshadeHanging that foreshadows the end to the then series-capping TV movie. The two watch a weepy teen drama called ''[[SoapWithinAShow Agony County]]'':
--->'''Ron:''' Oh, please! Are they still teasing that Charity and Danny are gonna get together?\\
'''Kim:''' Like that's ever gonna happen! It would end the series.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheMartian: Beck and Johanssen's relationship is reduced to a literal Last Minute Kiss when she gives him a quick smooch before he goes EVA to help retrieve Mark, instead of (apparently) hooking up beforehand and moving into the same bunk as happened in the book. Given that said romance didn't really add much to the story in the first place and barely ever comes up after it's mentioned, [[TropesAreNotBad this doesn't really hurt much.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutron'' did this with Jimmy and Cindy in LITERALLY the last minute of the last episode, "The Lady Sings the News". Even though the episode itself was [[ADayInTheLimelight Libby-centered]]...

* ''StrangersInParadise'': The hookup of [[spoiler: Casey and Tambi]] in the last issue struck many readers as [[StrangledByTheRedString forced]], given that they'd only been revealed even to have had an employer/employee relationship two issues previously; both were examples of Terry Moore's KudzuPlot tendencies getting out of hand as the series drew to a close.
* ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'': Over 20 years (real time) after their initial relationship crashed and burned, Shadowcat and Colossus finally consummated in the pages of ''Astonishing X-Men'', [[spoiler: She's lost in space, presumed nearly dead, within the year.]] But he was also dead for nearly a decade of that time.

* ''{{Franchise/Naruto}}'': Due to genre of the series, all canon pairings decided within the last two chapters and [[Film/Naruto7TheLast The Last Movie]]. AllLoveIsUnrequited is strictly enforced for the entire duration of the series and even at the end of the main story, the romantic relationships of the characters were still left unresolved. Then the last chapter is a BabiesEverAfter DistantFinale with the romantic relationships somehow resolved off-screen during the TimeSkip. In the case of Naruto and Hinata, their hookup was resolved in an in-canon movie appropriately titled ''The Last'' set between the second last chapter and the last chapter of the manga.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'': Milla and Jude are seen as this by some players, as they never actually admit their feelings for each other out loud and their ([[LostInTranslation English]]) scenes tend to lack a certain romantic note to them, which makes their status as OfficialCouple come off as this. [[spoiler: The fact that [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence Milla becomes the new Maxwell]] and has to leave the Human for the Spirit Realm, leaves any ''proper'' relationship an impossibility.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Starslip}}'': Holliday and Cutter are shown holding hands in the final episode. They'd staged a [[CrackPairing makeout session]] a few episodes earlier to throw off Deep Time's prediction algorithms, but there was never a hint of romance.
