* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' Lisa develops a crush on [[TheBully school bully]] Nelson. She is too scared to approach him and so writes a "Guess who likes you" note and asks Milhouse to pass it to him. Nelson does not realise that Milhouse is acting as an intermediary and so the resident ButtMonkey ends up in the hospital.

* In ''KenanAndKel'' this leads the later of the titular duo accidentally stealing someone else's girlfriend. Hilarity ensues.
* ''TheComicStripPresents'' film ''Mr Jolly Lives Next Door'' features an escort agency accidentally receiving a letter meant for a hitman. The message? "Take out Nicholas Parsons".
* In ''FullHouse'', a prank love letter was left to one of the girls. She distresses over it and misplaces it. Repeat for every other character on the show.
* In an episode of MyNameIsEarl, Earl helps a man who'd written a love letter Earl had prevented from being delivered by spending time with the intended recipient so she won't get involved with anyone else before the sender can get back into shape again. When she finds the letter, she thinks it's from Earl. Unfortunately, [[spoiler: Earl's interested in her, too -- she can spit and she likes Skynyrd! -- so he lets her go on thinking he'd written it]].

* [[VideoGameTropes Video game]] example: ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'', in which Eiko leaves a note for Zidane. It never reaches him, and is eventually intercepted by both Steiner and Beatrix, who each think it's from the other.

* A variation is played on ''SuzumiyaHaruhi'', when the class representative Ryoko Asakura leaves Kyon an anonymous note in his UsefulNotes/InsideShoes locker. Kyon first thinks the note was written by Mikuru, but then he corrects himself: the note was a simple sheet of paper torn from a notepad, and it would be Mikuru only if the note was written in scented decorated paper sprinkled with glitter. Massive mayhem ensues. Decidedly ''not'' of the romantic variety.
