** Played with in ''Videogame/DarkSouls3''. Technically, there is one character who has something of a romance plot, however it involves [[spoiler:a cult you can work with kidnapping him/her (his/her gender changes depending on yours), possibly killing him/her, then you stabbing his/her face with a ceremonial sword in some sort of ritual. Though you do see him/her alive in the ending you get from doing this,]] it's clearly not your standard romance plot.

* An EnforcedTrope in WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic reboot, as in ''WesternAnimation/EightCrazyNights'' Rachel and Malcolm (their [[AsHimself As Themselves]] characters, not the people) try to get together for Christmas sex, but Critic instantly separates them and tells them to watch the movie with him.

* ''Anime/DogDays'' is very weird about this. Practically the entire cast is [[AllLovingHero All-Loving Heroes]] who will proudly declare their love for one another (even to members of the same sex), engage in lots of hugging, glomping, and [[PettingZooPeople petting]], and at one point each of the three Heroes shares a bed with their respective kingdom's ruler (which includes a male/female coupling). However, it's only ever portrayed as very close friendship without a single trace of sexuality involved, probably in large part because most of the characters are in their early teens. Actual discussion of romance is extremely rare, like the scene where Princess Millihiore and Rebecca discuss their feelings for Cinque and [[ShipperOnDeck each encourages the other to pursue him]]. The weird part comes from the fact that the series can be very {{Fan Service}}-y at times, with lots of ClothingDamage, {{Gainaxing}}, and a few AccidentalPervert moments. When the second season introduced an older male character who engages in perverted behaviors like [[PeepingTom peeping]], one blog referred to him as "The only character in the series who knows what a vagina is".

* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'' was written with no romance in mind at all. In an interview, the director specifically stated that he considered the political and symbolic relationship between the show's two leads more important than any potential romance. Despite that, there are some rather obvious romantic overtones in the Duo/Hilde relationship, and [[spoiler:Heero and Relena even actually do share a kiss in the only canonical manga spin-off]]. The most seriously built up romantic connection, in the sense that it would be really cruel to take these two apart, and they build an emotional link and seem to fit together and all that, is Trowa and Quatre. It doesn't have to be sexual, but it's sure as hell romantic.

** As an aside, despite the director's statements, the same interview had him saying that just because he can't and didn't wrote romantic elements into the series doesn't mean they don't exist. He even said that he could easily see Heero and Relena becoming a couple somewhere down the line when their lives aren't quite so hectic. [[spoiler:Which is exactly what happens at the end of the sequel novel ''Frozen Teardrop''.]]

** And then one of the movies went ahead and had an UnholyMatrimony plot. Farshtey had to handwave that one as merely a kind of political alliance, the same way kings would have their children married to strengthen bonds between royal houses (which to be fair is very much TruthInTelevision).

* The original novels for ''RecordOfLodossWar'' keeps romance off the radar. There's more of it in the anime adaptations, but other than Deedlit's crush on Parn, most of it is kept low-key.

* In spite of coming to respect each other and battling across the Wasteland together, Max and Furiosa in ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' never express any romantic interest towards each other. Joe has his "wives", but his relationship with them is [[SexSlave anything but romantic]].

* There is no romance in ''Literature/TheMysteriousBenedictSociety''. There's no ShipTease between Reynie, Katie, and Sticky despite being of similar age and the adults similarly have no love interests. There's just a lot of [[TrueCompanions friendship]] and familial affection.

* The Theatre/MrsHawking series: None of the three main characters have any romantic interest in each other, and though there are some relationships with supporting cast, romance is not a big part of the series.

* 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.
