* Parodied in ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi'': All members of the Weiss-Jaune-Pyrrha love triangle get shot down in quick succession. Ren, watching, comments "If only they could see what was right in front of them." Behind him is Nora, who angrily says "Yeah! If only!" while waving a sign that says "[[UnluckyChildhoodFriend Notice me!]]"

** Casca's earlier infatuation with Griffith. She didn't show it (except when she saw him chatting up Charlotte), and if Griffith was aware of it he probably encouraged it but by the time Griffith is recued she's in love with Guts. Griffith sees it as his having truly lost everything (he'd already lost his men, the favor of the king, his tendons) [[StartOfDarkness and doesn't take it well.]]

* In ''Literature/WolfHall'', Cromwell hires probable widow Helen Barre into his household so that she can provide for her two children without being separated from them, and they're on pretty friendly terms. At one point, she asks him if he is absolutely sure that her husband is dead and he replies oh yes, go ahead and remarry. It's not until months later that Cromwell realizes she had a specific man in mind for remarriage--and then only because Rafe Sadler married her instead.[[note]]As a historical note, Helen's husband turned up a decade later in ''Ireland'', which explains why nobody could find him, and made a big stink about her remarrying. Rafe had to get a special Act of Parliament to make his marriage to Helen (and their children together) legitimate.[[/note]]

** Then, in the movie, Helga pretty much screams her feelings for him to his face and gives him a BigDamnKiss. His first thought afterwards? The quote at the top of this page.

The Japanese have a special term for this: ''Donkan'' (鈍感), which is basically the short-form word for this trope.

** Boa Hancock is (extremely obviously) in love with main protagonist [[IdiotHero Monkey D. Luffy]], yet is too shy to say it outright. He has no idea whatsoever. Considering he tells her after the timeskip that he won't marry her he probably knows but isn't interested. Assuming he properly understands the connection between romance and marriage, [[IdiotHero which is far from guaranteed]].

He doesn't even fall for her devil fruit powers, which can leave anyone immobilized by her beauty, [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer even other women]], which hints that he may [[{{Asexuality}} completely lack the capacity to feel romantic/sexual attraction at all]].



** Ash, Ash, Ash: numerous characters of the day, multiple traveling companions, and [[OhMyGods Arceus-knows-how-many]] '''''[[InterspeciesRomance Pokémon]]''''' have had obvious feelings for him, and he's remained the ChasteHero since you could count the number of episodes on one hand. Keep in mind that he is ten years old, and also the IdiotHero. Ash often also has the issue of being oblivious to the concept of love itself, even when he is not the recipient.

** Ike from ''Path of Radiance'' and ''Radiant Dawn'', however, takes this obliviousness to entirely new levels and never quite gets it despite all the women who have expressed interest in him. There are, of course, [[AmbiguouslyGay other]] [[{{Asexuality}} explanations.]]

** Ike from ''Path of Radiance'' and ''Radiant Dawn'', however, takes this obliviousness to entirely new levels and never quite gets it despite all the women who have expressed interest in him. The only time he remotely catches on is with [[AbhorrentAdmirer Aimee]], and that's only because she's so awfully blatant and open about it even he can see it. Strangely enough, this doesn't seem to be the case with other people, being well aware of Titania's feelings for his father, giving the impression that he's only oblivious when it's directed at him. There are, of course, [[AmbiguouslyGay other]] [[{{Asexuality}} explanations.]]



** He's not much more observant in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', either, where both childhood pal Ilia and pint-sized DeadpanSnarker [[CuteMonsterGirl Midna]] have a thing for him. The closest he gets to catching on with anyone is when he shares a brief hand-holding scene with Princess Zelda...and ''she'' doesn't seem to have any real romantic feelings for him in this game.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Wind Waker]]'' Link seems to be a bit less of an idiot, which may [[JustifiedTrope make sense, as he's the first Link (in that timeline) to have actually seen normal, functioning couples]], and returns Tetra/[[spoiler:Zelda]]'s affection about as well as a HeroicMime can. Also judging by the embarrassed look on his face, Link immediately picked up what the Fairy Queen meant when she said that he was "just her type."

* For someone whos [[HaremSeeker aspiring to become a harem king]], [[ChivalrousPervert Issei]], of ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' is fairly clueless to the fact that [[CluelessChickMagnet hes already got one]]. Additionally, it takes several volumes for him to figure out that his [[MistressAndServantBoy mistress]], [[RedHeadedHeroine Rias]] [[ClubPresident Gremory]], is head over heels in love with him. Despite her sleeping in his bed [[MsFanservice (Naked, by the way)]] the makeout sessions and other obvious flags, he's still rather dense but not without reason. [[spoiler:With guidance from aforementioned harem, he gets over his whole [[TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest 'killed by his first girlfriend' ]] hang-up and [[OfficialCouple confesses to Rias, who accepts.]]]]
