** Naruto's fan girls from ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' also count as well since they're only interested in Naruto because he's the hero who ended the war and saved the world. Hinata Hyuga is the only girl in the Leaf Village who actually [[WartsAndAll loves Naruto for who is]] his and not because of him being the hero who saved both the Leaf and the world.

* An old [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]] short called "Ding Dog Daddy" features a hapless dog, who shares the voice of ''WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}}'', fails to get a girlfriend but falls for a female dog named Daisy. He goes through a vicious guard dog to be with her. What he's unable to realize is that Daisy is actually a metal statue of a dog, every time he kisses her is when lightning strikes. Even after she's been melted for scrap and molded into a missile, he's unable to see his girlfriend was never a real dog.

The trope name refers to Éowyn's unrequited love for Aragorn from the ''LordOfTheRings'' trilogy. Accordingly, compare and contrast with AllLoveIsUnrequited. Not to be confused with FightingAShadow.

In the character's mind, one type of relationship was simply confused with another. This has some basis in reality, where some potentially romantic relationships are actually people seeking "figures". (Hell, ''[[TruthInTelevision who hasn't done this at some point]]?) They spend time with a person because he or she [[YouRemindMeOfX reminds]] them of someone ''[[ReplacementGoldfish else]]''. For example, some characters attracted to older characters often have an absent parent or older sibling or a dead little sister. This situation is often the inherent role of an Unwanted Harem's UnluckyEverydude.

Like DeathOfTheHypotenuse and RonTheDeathEater, this trope serves as a subtrope of DieForOurShip in {{fanfic}}, to clear the way for the author's [[{{Shipping}} preferred 'ship]].

** Likewise, Nuriko's love interest Hotohori had a huge crush on Miaka and was a strong contendor for her attentions. Turns out he was more in love with the ''idea'' of the Suzaku no Miko, rather than Miaka herself as a person. [[spoiler:He gets over it enough to marry one of the court ladies, Houki (who looks ''suspiciously'' like Nuriko when he was still a crossdresser, or like his dead little sister would've looked like if she was alive), and have a child with her... before ''he'' dies.]]

* ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'': [[BigBad Cia]] developed feelings for [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link, the Hero of Hyrule]], because she observed his various past lives for years. Due to her loneliness, she perceived him being her ideal soulmate and grew jealous of his connection to Princess Zelda. After her corruption [[spoiler: by Ganondorf]], she attacks Hyrule with an army to conquer and claim Link, not able to comprehend what he's actually like or that she's made herself his enemy.

* The song "Flawless" from Music/TheNeighbourhood is about the singer falling in love with an idealized, 'flawless' girl that he starts a relationship with... and then falls out of love with when he gets to know her and realizes that she's human and flawed the way everyone is.
