* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', Molly Carpenter had this for Harry. Harry is fully aware of the reason for it, and provides the current page quote on LikeParentLikeSpouse when he gently tries to explain the situation to her. Unfortunately, rather than growing out of the crush, it changes into definite sexual feelings when she's a teenager and it eventually becomes genuine unrequited love when she's in her 20s. By this point she has matured enough to let her relationship with Harry stay platonic, and consequently Harry assumed that she had gotten over her childish crush and was surprised and saddened to discover the depths of her feelings, since he knew he could not reciprocate them. (Though with the shift in power dynamic between the two as of ''Literature/ColdDays'', Harry himself doesn't rule out the eventual possibility of something happening between them.)

The fact that her own father has come to the mistaken conclusion that they're already in one but hasn't taken his head off helps).

* Also in ''Film/{{Jack|1996}}'' when the titular character gets a crush on his [[JenniferLopez school teacher]]. Played with and justified since he suffers from a disorder that speeds up his aging four-fold (so he looks and appears 40 when he's actually 10 at heart), he sees it as OK because he looks like a grown-up (which eliminates girls his own actual age). The teacher understands this, but still turns him down, because he is 10 at heart and it would still be wrong regardless of what he looks like.

* In the film version of ''Franchise/JurassicPark'', [[{{Tomboy}} tomboy]] [[{{Playful Hacker}} hacker]] Lex Murphy clearly has a crush on paleontologist Alan Grant, even before he saves her life. In [[Literature/JurassicPark the novel]], Lex is much younger, so this subtext is absent.

** To some extent, Yuffie's crush could also be considered this. She's 16, Cloud's 21. Their date scene is very awkward because it's glaringly obvious that he's not interested.

* Aang's(12) feelings for Katara (14) in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' are so close to the border limit for this trope that they actually cross it over the course of the series. A childlike fondness soon becomes a crush that grows as he matures over the course of his journey.
