* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' this issue come up between Arnold and Lilah, both have asked each other if they simply like the other of or they, as they put it, "''Like''-me, like me". They both have held both forms of like towards each other, just unfortunately, [[UnrequitedLoveSwitcheroo at different times]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' this is [[AllLovingHero Rose Quartz]]'s ''flaw''. She was a very empathic Gem, full of love to every living creature she encountered but though she had a deep, agape love for everyone, she also had the tendency to love humans collectivelly, making difficult for her to love Greg as an ''individual'' instead of as ''a'' human, despite considering Greg "her favorite human".

** Rose's son, the eponymous Steven Universe has shades of this as well. When teased about liking Connie in her introductory episode, his response was "I like everyone", though his feelings for her are likewise hinted to be [[PuppyLove more than platonic]].

In English we have love for deep romantic love ("I love you, Sandi") or [[PlatonicLifePartners deep platonic love]] ([[HeterosexualLifePartners "I love you, man"]]) or [[TrademarkFavoriteFood shallow love of foodstuffs]] ("God, I love pastrami"). There's also times where romantic affection occurs but is not as deep as love in which case "love" in considered deeply inappropriate so you have ''like'' or the rather pubescent ''like''-like which is different from just "like". Confused? Well it carries onto other languages too; the French can be confused by ''copain'' and ''ami'' and the German language has a single word ''Freund'' for male friend or boyfriend and a single word ''Freundin'' for female friend or girlfriend, while ''daisuki'' (or the plain, less emphatic form, ''suki'') is a popular word used in {{anime}} for affection, but it can be very nebulous out of context (''aishiteru'', on the other hand, is very clear in its meaning and more or less cannot be taken any other way).

A variant: a character is thrilled to receive what appears to be something very special and personal (often a valentine or a Christmas present) from the person they have a crush on - only to learn that the entire cast got them.

* ''Manga/DGrayMan'': This happens in chapter 205, when Allen is leaving the Order because of his recent discovery that he is the 14th Noah, that the Order is perfectly willing to kill innocents and infect people with akuma cells to make more Exorcists and that an Apocryphos is among the people at the order, and then [[ShipTease Lenalee]] catches up to him. Before passing through the gate to the Ark, he hugs her, dispels her doubts and says that he loves her... and everybody at the order, and that no matter what he is still an Exorcist. Cue massive amounts of {{Squee}}.

I love Hotohori, Tasuki - all of them. I think that's what makes me a Suzaku warrior, and I'm ''proud'' of that."

* Done rather confusingly in the ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' anime. In the original visual novel, there's a scene where Riki mentally admits to having a crush on Kyousuke but outwardly denies it, only to have Kyousuke say that Riki is his number one right now, causing Riki to blush, wondering whether he means what it sounds like. In the anime, after Kyousuke says that, Riki rushes to say that he doesn't like him (using the same words as when denying it in the VN), causing Kyousuke to get very depressed and leave. Riki follows him dramatically, saying that he does love him... just like he loves all the Little Busters. For some reason, Kyousuke seems pleased by this, and the scene ends with them chanting about how awesome the Little Busters group is. [[ShipTease And so their relationship once again returns to the ambiguous...]]

** Youko actually did it to ''herself'' moments earlier; she knew Asahi had something to tell her, but when the idea of a LoveConfession came to mind, she shot herself down by saying he's nice to ''everybody'', and she causes him too much trouble for him to see her as anything but a friend. Due to her own nervousness and uncertainty about her feelings for Asahi, she interrupts him mid-confession, awkwardly says "I like you! ...And all our other friends!" and runs off.
* Touta from ''Manga/UQHolder'' falls under this, telling people to their faces that he loves them with no shame (and generally being clueless when they react the way you'd expect). He doesn't seem to be talking about romantic attraction, though. Getting put under a TruthSerum makes things a lot worse, causing him to not only declare that he loves all his friends, but also list in detail exactly what he loves about them... except for Mizore, whom he just calls short.

Gerome blushes and attempts to get her to clarify her meaning, but she breezes on, and it seems like a classic case of oblivious plucky girl not realizing the double-meaning.

* Dutch has the same problem, when the diminutive isn't used - 'mijn vriendin' literally means 'my female friend' or 'my girlfriend', but people usually assume it's the second meaning. 'Een vriendin' means 'A female friend' or 'A girlfriend', but people generally assume it's the first meaning. Though the rules about this aren't as strict as in German, there's still some misunderstanding involved whenever you talk about 'mijn vriendin', if it's a platonic female friend.

In English we have love for deep romantic love ("I love you, Sandi") or [[PlatonicLifePartners deep platonic love]] ([[HeterosexualLifePartners "I love you, man"]]) or [[TrademarkFavoriteFood shallow love of foodstuffs]] ("God, I love pastrami"). There's also times where romantic affection occurs but is not as deep as love in which case "love" in considered deeply inappropriate so you have ''like'' or the rather pubescent ''like''-like which is different from just "like". Confused? Well it carries onto other languages too; the French can be confused by ''copain'' and ''ami'' and the German language has a single word ''Freund'' for male friend or boyfriend and a single word ''Freundin'' for female friend or girlfriend, while ''daisuki'' (or the plain, less emphatic form, ''suki'') is a popular word used in {{anime}} for affection, but it can be very nebulous out of context. "Aishiteru", on the other hand, is very clear in its meaning and more or less cannot be taken any other way.

One big problem in adaptations for other languages is the subjectivity in deciding which kind of affection is the proper one. (Incidently, ''aishiteru'' is a much less ambiguous term.) In some cases this is played for humor, while in other cases the [[SilkHidingSteel classy character]] ''is'' denying the confession but feigning ignorance to avoid causing the other person embarrassment.

Find an AllLovingHero priestess who loves "all children of the goddess" (basically everyone), and her "love" counts enough to reverse the curse.
