* 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".

** [[spoiler:That is, until the trope is averted in the final episode of XY&Z where Serena kisses Ash! Although even then, the camera pans away from their faces.]]

* ''Webcomic/FreeSpirit'' cartoonist Peter Paltridge has no plans to make Winnie Goodwin and Thomas Harper a couple. While [[Series/FreeSpirit the show]] that inspired the comic created romantic tension between them, Peter fears that hooking them up would require Winnie to out herself as a witch to Thomas. The pilots of both the show and the comic had Winnie clearly state that the terms of her staying with mortals forbid Thomas from finding out about her magical abilities.

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' does not end in a romance between the two leads, who happen to be both male and female and end up working together. In fact, not so much as a romance even seems to form between Judy and Nick.

*** [[spoiler:Of course, this promptly got [[ShipSinking shot in the head]] with the reveal that Pudding is actually EvilAllAlong and intends to kill Sanji and his entire family. Despite how little sense this makes.]]

* Although Dipper and Mabel had their fair share of love interests, ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' was ultimately not a show about romance. In the last episode, Dipper outright says that making friends was his top priority. Justified in that, well, they are just kids.

** While love and sex are referenced in ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'' none of it really approaches the physical level. The closest thing is the resident HookerWithAHeartOfGold who gives you her blood, and even then it's only because blood transfusion is comparable to sex in the culture of Yharnam.

[[spoiler:The Doll does eventually confess her love for the Hunter, but it's intentionally vague if it's maternal, romantic, platonic, or even ''real'', the last of which she is aware of as a possibility.]]

* In an extreme example, ''Manga/DragonBall'' follows the lives of the protagonists, a few of whom marry and start families, although we're not shown much of the relationships at all, however there was a noticeable build-up to Gohan/Videl. The creator has stated in interviews this is due to his disinterest in romance. ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' has a kissing scene between (Future) Trunks and (Future) Mai, but the camera pans out when they're about to lock lips.
