* ''Series/AgentCarter'' portrays the relationship between [[BadAss Peggy Carter]] and [[NonActionGuy Howard Stark]] as this. They're clearly VitriolicBestBuds, despite the fact that Stark is usually an unabashed womanizer. This is perhaps best exemplified in the first episode, when he calls Carter "pal" and gives her what amounts to a bro-hug.

* Ragna the Bloodedge and Noel Vermillion from ''Franchise/BlazBlue'': At first, Noel harbored a crush on Ragna but eventually gets over it. [[spoiler:Justified because she is a {{Reincarnation}} of his long-lost sister Saya and incest-based relationships in the ''[=BlazBlue=]'' are a major no-no outside the Yayoi clan.]]

* Czech Republic and Slovakia in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' have quite the history together, from being ChildhoodFriends to parnering up into a single country once they gain their independence from Austria-Hungary. Notably, they get incensed when their eventual separation is referred to as a "divorce." Both find that, though they do alright on their own, they miss being together.

** Confirmed by one of Kubo's editors [[https://pepperrikka.tumblr.com/post/152761199129/httpstwittercomjumpolicestatus79447710019118 on Japanese TV]]. In regards to Ichigo, said editor refers to Rukia as "aibou" (non-romantic partner, in the line of TrueCompanions) and to Orihime as "heroine" (which in Japan can mean either "main female character" or "LoveInterest")

The [[AllThereInTheManual Crosspedia]] hints that Mii has [[TeacherStudentRomance a bit of a crush on Kogoro]], something that doesn't occur in the game.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': In the ''Fade to Black'' movie guide, WordOfGod describes [[http://ichinoue.tumblr.com/post/148517188500/why-is-the-ir-fandom-still-clinging-unto-the the relationship between Ichigo and Rukia]] as a close and unique friendship.
-->'''Creator/TiteKubo''': "It’s not friendship but it’s not an amorous feeling either. With these 2’s relationship, I think there is no other relationship like them in other works where despite both standing in a very close position with each other it is not romance (laughs). But in this year’s movie there is a scene where Ichigo says Rukia is his “Precious nakama” and I think that explains their relationship well."

* In ''Manga/KotouraSan'', though Yuriko makes several moves on Dai'chi throughout the series (which he ignored). They're close enough to be practically family, especially since Yuriko lost her mother. Dai'chi's mother practically acted as Yuriko's mother figure.

* Banjo and Kazooie, the two main characters from the videogame aptly titled ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'', are an example of this trope, as one is a male and the other is a female, but they do not pursue a romantic relationship, choosing instead to be close friends. It probably helps that Banjo is a bear and Kazooie is a bird.
