* Virtually all film adaptations of ''Literature/AndThenThereWereNone'' include a romance subplot between Vera and Lombard, two characters who had at most a few ShipTease moments in the book, and also [[spoiler:have them survive together instead of dying]]. This is brutally subverted in the 1987 Soviet film and 2015 BBC miniseries, however: the "romance" in the Soviet film culminates in [[spoiler:Lombard ''raping'' Vera which further worsens her mental breakdown]] and the romance in the BBC series [[spoiler:does ''not'' stop a paranoid and mentally unstable Vera from shooting Lombard dead just like in the original book]].



* In Creator/AgathaChristie's own theatrical adaptation of ''Literature/AndThenThereWereNone'' [[spoiler:two of the characters survive and fall in love.]]

* In the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' games, Cullen's fans have been asking the developers to do this for him since he was introduced in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins.'' They finally did in ''VideoGame/Inquisition'', making him romanceable by human or elven female Inquisitors. His is one of the longer {{romance arc}}s in the game, and he's the only male {{love interest}} who will [[spoiler:propose marriage in the final DLC]].

* Inverted in the anime adaptation of ''Literature/SoundEuphonium''. In the books, Kumiko and Shuichi have a fair amount of ShipTease together [[spoiler:and eventually end up the OfficialCouple]]. In the anime, many of Shuichi's scenes were either cut or altered. Shuichi is still in love with Kumiko however she is ObliviousToLove and their relationship is presented as more unrequited than in the books. While many fans thought ''Reina'' had been promoted to love interest (though season 2 ramping up her PrecociousCrush on Taki-sensei left [[BaitAndSwitchLesbians many confused on the series' intentions]]), the anime ultimately ends with [[spoiler:NoRomanticResolution for Kumiko.]]

* ''Series/{{Riverdale}}'':
** Moose sleeps around with Kevin in secret.
** While not exactly a "love interest", Archie has a fling with Ms. Grundy (who has been ''significantly'' aged down). Things end up very awkward between them afterwards due to their [[TeacherStudentRomance relationship to each other]] and the fact [[spoiler:they're both witnesses to Jason Blossom's murder]].



* The Wicked Witch of the West and the Scarecrow are promoted to being love interests in the musical ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'', based on [[Literature/{{Wicked}} a book]] of the same name. It seems really {{Squick}}y unless you've actually seen the musical ([[spoiler: Wicked Witch Elphaba turned Fiyero, her boyfriend, into the scarecrow to keep him from being tortured to death]]). After that, it's all just an interesting AlternativeCharacterInterpretation.

** In the books, Glinda has no feelings towards Fiyero and if anything is AmbiguouslyGay. The musical adds a love triangle between her, Elphaba, and Fiyero.

* Leslie and Jesse from ''Literature/BridgeToTerabithia'' have a friendship that can be interpreted as romantic, however canonically they're only ever specified as friends. The 2007 film aged them up from 10 to 12 in order to depict their relationship as less platonic.

* In the original version of ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'', Sasami and Kanata were minor characters [[SatelliteCharacter who were only relevant when it involved]] Rin and Haruka respectively. When the [[UpdatedRerelease Ecstasy version]] was released, the new content included routes for the two of them.
