* Unlike most life simulation games, there is no romance option in ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing''. The only romance is a SiblingTriangle involving three [=NPCs=]. This is likely due to the fact you are a TokenHuman in a WorldOfFunnyAnimals, and Creator/{{Nintendo}} wants to avoid InterspeciesRomance.

* The ''LyricalNanoha'' series has almost no romance onscreen, although [[ShipTease quite a lot is implied]]. Aside from Nanoha's brother and his girlfriend, the only confirmed relationship is between Amy and Chrono, and these characters mostly [[DemotedToExtra vanish after the second season]], and even when they were a part of the show nothing actually happens onscreen. There are several character pairs that have romantic overtones, but none of them are ever explicitly shown to be more than friendship.

** At one point (particularly in the Davison era), there was a No Hugging, No Kissing, No ''Touching'' (for example, a comforting hand on the shoulder was a no-no) between the Doctor and his female companions, to dispel the notion of "hanky-panky" going on in the TARDIS (very likely due to ExecutiveMeddling since that one point in the Davison era the young-looking Doctor was travelling alone with two gorgeous female companions, one of whom was about the same age as the actor playing the Doctor). There were a few exceptions, like when [[spoiler:Nyssa leaves]]. [[TearJerker She gives the Doctor a]] [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments kiss on the cheek.]]

** The Twelfth Doctor tried to enforce the NoHuggingNoKissing rule in Series 8 - in part due to the instigation of an AnchoredShip - but kept being hugged regardless by CuddleBug Clara. By Series 9, by which time a subtle form of ShipRescue was under way, not only was he enjoying the hugs, he was instigating them on occasion. WordOfGod (actors and producer) is that the Doctor and Clara don't display affection openly for each other, so the no kissing rule remains in effect, with a notable exception being "Last Christmas" where Clara kisses the Doctor on the cheek before agreeing to run away with him in his TARDIS, and in "Face the Raven" the Doctor [[IKissYourHand kisses Clara's hand]] when he says good bye to her (after sharing one final hug).

Added DiffLines:

* The ''WesternAnimation/RatchetAndClank2016'' movie has two females whose personalities complement the main characters: one takes action and shoots anything that gets in her way, like Ratchet, and the other prefers to create clever strategies, like Clank. [[CompressedAdaptation In the interest of time]], however, the movie skips any sort of romantic entanglements and instead chooses to focus on the newly-formed friendship between the two male leads, detailing how they became HeterosexualLifePartners.

* The only display of romantic affection in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' has so far been the single kiss Clare gave to [[DesignatedLoveInterest Raki]] just before leaving him for good. Everything else never goes beyond IOweYouMyLife sentiment and VitriolicBestBuds relationship, much to the frustration of the considerable {{Yuri Fan}}dom of the series.

* In the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime it seems like the only couples allowed consist of minor characters. None of the main characters are in relationships, and the only one who seems to want to be is Brock. Although, since [[KidHero almost none of them have hit puberty yet]], this kind of makes sense. However, in the original soundtrack, 2 B. A. Master, there is a love song which implies that Misty has very strong feelings for Ash.

* While ''Manga/{{Naruto}} has'' romance in it, even as an important part of its plot (and is a MASSIVELY popular subject for {{Shipping}} fics), effectively NONE of it ever takes place on-page, due to author Masashi Kishimoto's [[http://www.saiyanisland.com/2014/11/kishimoto-sensei-speaks-after-narutos-finale/ self-confessed inability to write romance]], which he attributes to chronic embarrassment. Even in the epilogue chapter, you barely get to see any of the married couples interact with each other and the main ones everyone wanted to see, [[spoiler:Naruto/Hinata and Sasuke/Sakura]], didn't even appear on page at the same time (although in [[spoiler:Sasuke]]'s case at least he has the excuse that he's WalkingTheEarth).
** Kinda subverted with [[spoiler: Naruto/Hinata]] considering they get a BigDamnKiss in ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie''. Masashi Kishimoto says he thought he wouldn't be able to watch the particular scene but surprisingly enough he managed it and felt like "his kids had finally grew up and flew away from home".

* ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' has hundreds of characters but relatively little romance. In G1 there were a few "family" sets that consisted of mares, stallions, and their foals however that was more-or-less it besides a Moondancer/Glory figurine. The adaptations had some romance but not by much. By G3 there weren't even any stallions or colts. The G4 [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic cartoon]] has romance pop up frequently but none of the main characters have anything concrete besides Spike's PrecociousCrush on Rarity, Twilight's crush on Flash in ''WesternAnimation/EquestriaGirls'', and Rarity having a few crushes that never go anywhere.



* There is very little romance in ''WesternAnimation/{{Fillmore}}''. It's most noticeable with the main duo, as most series would have ShipTease between opposite gender leads but Fillmore's partnership with Ingrid is strictly professional.

* The first two ''Disney/TheLionKing'' films had romance in them, and in fact the [[Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride second film]] was influenced by ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet''. ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' is aimed at a younger demographic than the films and stars {{Kid Hero}}es. There's much more of a lean towards family and friends than romance.

* In ''Film/TheLastWitchHunter'', while two leads are man and woman, there's no romantic chemistry and no romance between the two. Explainable by Kaulder having his LostLenore and, more importantly, being eight hundred years old while Chloe seems to have not yet hit her thirties.
