* While it's still up in the air whether it might progress to something else, [=BoJack=] and Diane are the embodiment of this in ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman''. After a failed stint of AllLoveIsUnrequited and UnresolvedSexualTension, both come to an understanding between each other, especially regarding their mutual UsefulNotes/{{depression}} and deep empathy for the other. Diane might be technically married to [[TheRival Mr. Peanutbutter]] and [=BoJack=] ReallyGetsAround, but they're practically inseparable and rely on each other for support. Not to say of ''how much they hurt'' when the other is not around. Their relationship is complex, to say the least as they mutually deconstruct and build each other, with their paths being intertwined.

** Princess Carolyn has had two examples this: one with Rutabaga Rabbitowitz, which ended when they had a RelationshipUpgrade and the subsequent WomanScorned, and a more genuine with Judah Mannowdog, her assistant at VIM and trusted sidekick [[spoiler:at least until they have a falling out and she fires him.]]
** A rare villainous example: the aforementioned rabbit and Vanessa Gekko, PC's rival after they enter business together in their joint agency.

* [[BadassBookworm Matteo]] and [[HeroicBastard Tzigone]] grow into this dynamic across the ''CounselorsAndKings'' trilogy. The two are frequently mistaken for lovers, but while Tzigone ''does'' sometimes flirt with Matteo, it's made plain she does it only because he's a dedicated member of a quasi-religious order that's supposed to be celibate and she likes to tease him; their friendship, while both deep and meaningful, is devoid of serious sexual attraction. At one point it's teased that they're actually (half) siblings, but this turns out not to be the case.

* Zoe and Mal in ''Series/{{Firefly}}''. They're old army buddies who happen to be close enough to give Zoe's husband Wash a fit of [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy]] in "War Stories"... and then the whole episode is decided to deconstructing the idea of them as a couple. It gets played for laughs at the end of the episode, when Mal and Zoe tease Wash by acting like they're going to kiss, but are actually so reluctant and awkward (and the chemistry so off) that the whole thing falls flat on its face. Summed up in the words of their teammate Jayne, who walks in on the scene halfway in:

Simply being friends doesn't make a pair an example, nor does just being TrueCompanions - rather, in terms of TheFourLoves, this is ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philia Philia]]'' with overtones of ''Storge'' but a complete lack of ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eros_%28love%29 Eros]]''. Despite their tendency to inspire [[FanPreferredCouple shipping]], there's a good reason they're called ''Platonic'' Life Partners. However, there is precedent for {{Relationship Upgrade}}s to occasionally happen if one or both partners realize their feelings run deeper. Occasionally, BetterAsFriends and AnchoredShip also will crossover into this trope if romantic pairing change their status, voluntarily or otherwise.

* A majority of the relationships between the Meisters and their respective weapons are this in ''Manga/SoulEater''. WordOfGod made it clear since early on that he never planned on developing the relationships into anything romantic. Soul and Maka are the main example. They're definitely each others' primary relationship - the series is based on one character that is a weapon (or a person who turns into a weapon or... it's weird and ambiguous) bonded with one character that is a wielder, and thus are constant companions and the most important people to each other. Despite the good deal of ShipTease around the two, their relationship ultimately remains platonic.

** It becomes a major plot point in ''Dead Man's Handle'' when Willie Garvin is brainwashed. His enemy supplants the image of Modesty with that of his current lover, and tells him she has been killed by an assassin - whose face is that of Modesty. The intention is that Willie kills an unsuspecting Modesty. [[spoiler: The whole scheme fails because the brainwashers cannot imagine their platonic rtelationship and the thought of having had sex with Modesty is too jarring for Willie to sustain the wrong scenario - he quickly realizes there must be something wrong with his memories.]]

* Actively invoked in ''Series/DoctorWho'' when after having travelled with Rose and Martha, the Doctor specifically says that he's only looking for a friend when Donna joins him. Donna vehemently echoes the sentiment that there will be no amorous relations between them. (Rose was someone he'd bonded with to the point of it ''seeming'' romantic at times[[note]]Later WordOfSaintPaul, however - the actors and producer - confirmed that it was a romance[[/note]], especially with how losing her affected him for a long time, and Martha had been in love with him but he, being the Doctor, either didn't notice or chose to ignore it - in part due to him still pining for Rose - and she eventually left because she realized he wasn't capable of returning her feelings.)
** {{Shipping}} aside, the Doctor has this sort of relationship with most of his female companions. Due to the series (in both incarnations) invoking TheILoveYouStigma it is often difficult to tell for certain the level of the Doctor's feelings towards certain characters. Even in cases where the Doctor has been ''directly'' told "I love you" (Rose Tyler, River Song, Clara Oswald), there is still wiggle room to argue that the relationship remains platonic -- even in the case of River Song, whom he ''married''; although there is dialogue uttered by River in which she suggests a sexual relationship, with the occasional reciprocation by the Eleventh Doctor, the series has never confirmed that this was anything more than banter.
** Notable examples include the Fourth Doctor and Romana, the Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble (as mentioned above) the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond (once she got over her childish crush), and the Eleventh ''and'' Twelfth Doctors with Clara Oswald. Twelve and Clara's relationship eventually becomes similar to Ten and Rose's -- a deep connection that verges on romantic love, but is never confirmed as such on screen.
** Don't forget the Doctor and the TARDIS; probably the truest form of Platonic life Partners in the show. Friends may come and go but the TARDIS is forever!
*** If you want ShipTease, you want [[CargoShip the Doctor and the TARDIS]], if anything. He once ''hugged'' it after being separated from it for a time. And of course there is the entirety of the episode "The Doctor's Wife." [[spoiler: The title refers to the TARDIS.]] The episode actually has the TARDIS ''herself'' say "I love you" to the Doctor, after snogging him earlier in the episode.
*** And Sarah Jane asking Rose, "Does he still stroke bits of the TARDIS?" Rose laughs and says, "I'm like, do you two want to be alone?"

** Kyo Kusanagi and Athena Asamiya are hinted to have become this, Athena's former crush on Kyo notwithstanding. In the KOF: KYO manga their interactions become more platonic than anything after Iori Yagami attacks Kyo at school and both Athena and Kyo's girlfriend Yuki attempt to stop them; later in the KOF: KYO game, Athena gives him pep talks about "the female heart" [[ShipperOnDeck which are direct allusions to Yuki]], and isn't happy if you make Kyo hit on her instead. In the KOF 2000 CD drama, when Athena manages to contact Kyo [[ButtMonkey after lots of effort]], Kyo tells her he can't go back home and even asks her to relay a message from him ''to Yuki'' before leaving. And finally in KOF XIII, if you have Athena talk to NESTS!Kyo about how he shouldn't take all responsabilities since his friends support him, he will directly ask her if Yuki was the one who told her to tell him this.

* Series/{{Arrowverse}}
** ''Series/{{Arrow}}''
*** Oliver Queen and Tatsu Yamashiro. During his five years away from home, Tatsu was the only female companion Oliver did not develop romantic/sexual feelings for -- mainly because Tatsu was already married to his other companion and close friend, his handler Maseo Yamashiro. After Oliver saves her life, they develop a close friendship to the point that Tatsu was willing to trust him with the life of her son, Akio. Even after they parted, their friendship endured -- Tatsu was the one who save Oliver's life after his first duel with Ra's al Ghul, and when he called on her to help him end the League of Assassins plot to destroy Star(ling) City, she answered.
*** John Diggle and Felicity Smoak are as close as family. Diggle is very protective of Felicity, and they are each other's sounding boards when it comes to their personal problems.
** ''Series/TheFlash2014''
*** Barry Allen and Caitlin Snow. While they have the occasional ShipTease moment, their relationship is ultimately platonic and they have never shown a romantic interest in one another.
*** Cisco Ramon and Caitlin Snow have been best friends since before the Particle Accelerator, a friendship that only grew when they were the only ones to stick around after the project "failed". Like Barry and Caitlin above, they share some ShipTease, but no actual desire to get together.
*** Barry Allen and Felicity Smoak are BirdsOfAFeather, and were genuinely fond of each other at one point, but settle as this in the end.
*** Subverted with Barry Allen and Iris West. Iris ''thought'' they were this, only to have that image utterly shattered after Barry finally confessed to her that he'd been in love with her since they were kids. They try to make a go at being this again since Iris was with Eddie Thawne at the time, but it fails -- mainly because it was becoming increasingly obvious to Iris that Barry's feelings were ''not'' unrequited.
** ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow''
*** Sara Lance and Ray Palmer, who bond due to being from the same city but have no romantic feelings for one another.
*** [[BiTheWay Sara Lance]] and Amaya Jiwe are [[BashBrothers Bash Sisters]], but are not attracted to each other (mainly due to incompatible orientation).
** ''Series/Supergirl2015''
*** By Season Two, Kara mutually breaks up with James and Winn's crush on her has petered out, so she becomes this with both men.
