* In ''VisualNovel/CrossChannel'', the GenreSavvy Taichi comments that Nanaka's personality fits the PatientChildhoodLoveInterest trope, so it must be a flaw in the plot that she isn't really his childhood friend. [[spoiler:She's actually his ''mother''.]]

In that thing we call RealLife [[labelnote:*]]''What is that? [[IsItSomethingYouEat Can you eat it?]]''[[/labelnote]], this sort of situation is ''very'' rare, mostly due to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imprinting_%28psychology%29#Westermarck_effect the Westermarck effect;]] people who have known each other since they were ''small'' children tend not to fall for one another because they ''literally'' have more of a sibling relationship. There are exceptions to this rule, but they're very rare (and, sadly, almost always [[AllLoveIsUnrequited one-sided]]). Typically, the earliest you can develop a proper "crush" on someone is your "pre-teen" years; works that posit an introduction of the couple prior to this can push the bounds of feasibility for many viewers. It's more likely if the two have been apart for some time and they find each other after puberty kicked in, but the time that must pass for it to be realistic is, more often than not, way too long for fulfilling the trope anymore, so it becomes a case of ShesAllGrownUp instead.

In that thing we call RealLife [[labelnote:*]]''What is that? [[IsItSomethingYouEat Can you eat it?]]''[[/labelnote]], this sort of situation is ''very'' rare, mostly due TruthInTelevision, but only to [[http://en.an extent. There's a theory known as the "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imprinting_%28psychology%29#Westermarck_effect the org/wiki/Westermarck_effect Westermarck effect;]] effect]]" that claims that people who have grew up together before the age of 6 are likely to become hardwired to think about each other LikeBrotherAndSister. So, the characters wouldn't be able to fall in love if they'd really known each other since they were ''small'' children tend not to fall for one another because they ''literally'' have more of a sibling relationship.

* Ami Kurimoto is this to Junta Momonari in ''Manga/{{DNA 2}}'', and it's actually a huge plot point: as his childhood friend, Ami has come to know Junta so well... that she is [[NotDistractedByTheSexy completely]] [[NoSell immune]] to his [[ThePornomancer Mega Playboy]] side and, even more, is ''disgusted'' by him. This means she loves the ''real'' Junta, awkward and childish and all, rather than him as the super suave and seductive Mega Playboy.
