* One other way that ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' breaks the mold is the fact that it is a Disney ''princess'' movie that does not end in or even so much as imply a romance between the male and female leads. Maui and Moana do indeed grow closer, but they never show any interest in romancing the other at all. The only violation of this trope is a purely platonic hug at the end.

* Despite the many love songs and possible IncestSubtext in ''TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan'', the lives of Mr. Chan and his children were decidedly romance-free (on camera, anyway). The only romantic subplot ever was between the family dog and a one-episode canine character.

* 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''. Creator/MasashiKishimoto said 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", [[WordOfGod he did also mention]] that he didn't want any of the main characters to be involved in romantic relationships until at least they turned 18.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'', despite featuring at least three married couples, has no romance whatsoever - and of those three, Nibel and Slorn can't interact due to her nature as a demonseed, [[spoiler:Banage and Sara]] are in separation and Josef got married to Adela ''in absentia'', with neither interested in consummating the marriage, much less falling in love.

* ''Disney/BigHero6'' does not feature any form of romance forming between the hero squad, despite a few nods to Hiro and Honey Lemon's relationship in the comics.

* Unusually for a TalesSeries game, ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' manages to play this trope straight, or the most part. No romance seems to develop between any of the characters. However, it's not without its DirtyOldMan trope, wherein Raven often hits on the female characters. Estelle seems clueless, Judith doesn't care, and Rita gets ''violent''.

* Link and Zelda in the ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' games never have anything past friends/close acquaintances with each other, although some games will tease with Zelda showing some sort of feelings for Link (but never anything beyond it). The ending of ''VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink'' has Link and Zelda holding hands with Zelda possibly giving Link a kiss behind the curtains as it drops down, but it's never confirmed for sure. In most of the 3D installments, there'll always be a few female [=NPCs=] that will fawn over Link while Link himself doesn't show any interest in the girls. ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' comes close to bucking the trend with [[spoiler: Mipha]] who was not only Link's childhood friend, but she also loved him so deeply that she crafted a special armor made for his size and planned to give it to him as a marriage proposal. It is not shown whether or not Link was also in love and the answer can never be explored due to [[spoiler: Mipha being killed by Waterblight Ganon]].

** ''Breath of the Wild'' was also the first game to confirm in words that the series titular princess, Princess Zelda, had some romantic feelings for Link. She's revealed to have rejected the advances of [[spoiler: Kass's unnamed teacher]] on account of "only having eyes for her appointed knight", and it's stated that her sealing power was awakened [[spoiler: through her love and need to protect Link]]. It's even implied that she was going to ask the Great Deku Tree to pass on her LoveConfession to Link once he returned for the Master Sword--though the Great Deku Tree [[AbortedDeclarationOfLove cut her off]] to tell her it would sound better coming from her instead. However, much like with Mipha, his feelings are never confirmed and it's left open-ended whether or not the two of them ever become a couple after the end, meaning the trope is still very much in effect.

* The closest thing to romance in ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' is [[MauveShirt Gretchen's]] implied crush on [[HeroAntagonist Dib]], [[EvilerThanThou Tak's]] brief and incredibly violent "relationship" with Zim (motivated by revenge and SCIENCE!, respectively), and [[RobotBuddy GIR's]] very obvious interest in [[CreepyChild Gaz]]. WordOfGod clearly established that "liking each other is not the point" and that Zim does not love anyone. Even the Valentine's Day Special itself, when such episodes are usually about romance, was as far from romantic as one show can get.

Dib]]. WordOfGod clearly established that "liking each other is not the point" and that Zim [[VillainProtagonist Zim]] does not love anyone. Even the The Valentine's Day Special itself, episode seems to parody the very idea: Zim "dates" the new girl, [[TheDarkChick Tak]], because he mistakes her violent abuse for how humans show affection and wants to study how it works. Once he cruelly "breaks up" with her, he's surprised when such episodes are usually about romance, was as far from romantic as one show can get.she not only doesn't cry, she [[TheReveal reveals herself to be another Irken trying to steal his job]].



** [[WordOfGod Lauren Faust specifically noted that]] ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' was not a show which would contain romance of any kind for the [[FanNickname mane cast]]. Despite this, Rarity is initially attracted to [[PrinceCharmless Prince Blueblood]] (she got over ''that'' quickly though) and Spike has a PrecociousCrush on Rarity herself. All other romantic scenarios happen to minor or less recurring characters, so there is still a [[ValentinesDayEpisodes Valentines' Day]] episode, "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E18AFriendInDeed A Friend In Deed]]" has Cranky and Matilda, and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E25ACanterlotWeddingPart1 A Canterlot]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 Wedding]]" is about the wedding between Princess Cadance and Shining Armor.
