** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' has three of these:
** Played straight with the Lover's Pond sidequest, and hilariously executed. [[spoiler:Lover's Pond is the fabled area mentioned not only in Gerudo Town's Vai and Voe class, but also in the diary in Kakariko's armor shop. You can find it on Tuft Mountain, in the southeast area of the map, near Lurelin Village. The sidequest involves giving flowers.]]
** There is a sidequest in Hateno Village, in which Link is able to help the stable hand, Manny, woo the village innkeeper. The trope is hilariously played with, as when you ask the innkeeper, Prima, what sort of gift she would like, she quickly lies and says she'd like 100 crickets. Talk to her again, and Link will find out that she actually has eyes for a different guy in the village, and that she is already awareŚand put-off byŚManny's interest in her. The quest also appears to be a bit of a reference to the sidequest in ''Skyward Sword'', in which Link attempts to help a Hopeless Suitor with his crush, even down to the character designs of the [=NPCs=] involved being similar.
** The Zora girl Finley and the Hylian guy she had been writing love letters to. Link is able to follow Finley's letter down Zora River to its receiver, and encourage the guy to actually go and meet Finley in person.

* In ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', instead of killing off Yandere-chan's rivals for Senpai's affection, she can hook them up with other guys.

** And, in the offshoot ''VideoGame/RuneFactory'' series (think HarvestMoon combined with ''Zelda''), your PC has his own MatchMakerQuest.

* In May of the 2nd year of ''[[TokimekiMemorial Tokimeki Memorial 2]]'', one of the protagonists' best friends, Junichiro Hokari, will phone him to confess he's in love with one of the girls of the cast. You, as the protagonist, can, with the help of your childhood friend Hikari, can then set up a double date between you, Hikari, Jun, and Jun's love interest, in order to help him get close to her. Of course, if the girl Jun targets is the same as yours, this is the clue for restarting your game, [[ThatOneBoss unless you feel]] ''[[ThatOneBoss really]]'' [[ThatOneBoss confident in your combat stats]]...

* There are several of these in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind''. The first involves a woman who has fallen for the bandit who robbed her, and wants help tracking him down. Surprisingly, it turns out well. Another in the Tribunal expansion involves helping a woman who is far too busy with her work to meet men find a husband.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' has the quest ''The Book of Love'' where the player helps out 3 couples, including [[spoiler: a pair of dead lovers]], get together.
** Much earlier on, you can resolve a love triangle in Riverwood between a woman and two local males, whose plans of wooing the girl involves giving her a letter that makes the other look bad. Alternatively, you can get the tell the woman about this, causing her to get angry at the two and instead falling for you.

Whether the date is successful or not is up to a [[LuckBasedMission random chance]]; you can give each of the men advice which increases the odds of success, but never above 67%. If successful, one man [[DudeWheresMyReward gives you nothing as a reward]], the second gives you an enchanted belt, and the third gives you the artifact weapon "the [[LethalJokeItem Bi-Polar Blade]]."

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'' has one too. It's played with though: firstly, you have two possible options, you can either give Cawlin's love letter to the object of his affection, or you can end up giving it to [[MythologyGag the hand in the toilet.]] Secondly, [[spoiler: it turns out the NPC he likes actually has feeling for ''another'' NPC, and he returns them. Giving her the letter results in ''them'' getting together and Cawlin being left in tears.]] Both paths give you the same reward, so you don't need to worry about LostForever.

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' has a few twists to the formula. The questgiver is actually asking for help on behalf of a friend of hers. Like in it's predecessor, it ends in failure. But mostly because the client decides she'd rather get with the player instead... then the ''questgiver'' gets jealous and decides she likes you too!

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' has a few twists to the formula. One of the first is a compulsory quest to help the subordinate of a team member, that involves getting a favor from an alien craftsman that comes with a steep price; [[AllThatGlitters 10 pizzas]]. Doesn't seem like much until the shop owner charges you 10,000 credits for them. Another has gotten the girl with little issue already, but needs your help convincing her ProudWarriorRace father. But the third is the doozy; The questgiver is actually asking for help on behalf of a friend of hers. Like in it's predecessor, it ends in failure. But mostly because the client decides she'd rather get with the player instead... then the ''questgiver'' gets jealous and decides she likes you too!

** Also, Ronald Laren would like The Nuka-Cola Challenge to be this, but it doesn't work out that way. As in, you have the option of giving him the dough after fetching it so that he can use it to take advantage of her naiveté but this nets you bad karma, even though he doesn't succeed because the target is too stupid to understand his advances. If you want to be evil and have a female character, ''you can tell him to fetch the dough himself by proposing a threesome''; he rushes off eagerly, only to get killed.
