** In the manga, Ichigo and Rukia are PlatonicLifePartners and each other's [[TheNotLoveInterest not-love interests]]. The anime adds as much ShipTease as it's possible ''without'' making Rukia into Ichigo's official girlfriend, i.e. adding a CanonForeigner Shinigami who clearly ships them ''and'' making a whole {{filler}} episode littered with semi-romantic interactions. [[spoiler: Ironically, the manga [[ShipSinking sank the ship without mercy]].]]



** Inverted with Winry and Edward. Winry becomes a [[LikeBrotherAndSister sister figure]] to Ed. In the the manga they're the OfficialCouple throughout the series with a large amount of ShipTease [[spoiler:and eventually BabiesEverAfter]].

* In the ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' manga, Yahiko and Tsubame were never ''fully'' shown as a couple [[spoiler: though they did marry anyway]]. The anime shows Yahiko nursing a ''big''' crush on Tsubame, and on several occasions he gives her presents as well as goes on social activities with her.

** Similarly, in the manga Sano and Megumi were mostly platonic friends. The TV series shows Sanosuke giving Megumi gestures of affection and while her primary man of interest is Kenshin, she is fully aware of Sano's attraction and appreciates it even if she doesn't necessarily return it. (Yahiko even points out the ShipTease and [[ButtMonkey ends up smacked for it.]]) Once she confirms Kenshin's true one is Kaoru, she begins to show affection towards Sanosuke especially in the filler Tales of the Meiji Arc. Even while admitting Megumi was a beauty, manga!Sanosuke never showed the level of attraction towards her as he did in the anime and was too busy with his own personal business to attempt to get with her in a few social activities as the anime filler did.



* In the original ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden'', the mages Boey and Mae were LikeBrotherAndSister. However, the remake ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'' makes their bickering romantic, and they marry if they both survive to the end.

** The second adaptation of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' plays up Link's and Zelda's queenly/knightly relationship to the point where it's romantically tinged,



* 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.]]

* Liz Sherman from ''Film/{{Hellboy}}''. In the comicbooks, she's Hellboy's co-worker and friend, and something of a little sister. In the movies, she ends up boinking Hellboy. It did give her some character, since in the comics, she's mostly a FlatCharacter that the author has no idea to do with and only narrowly avoided killing off. (Her first four comics appearances ''all'' involve an antagonist sucking her power out for his own ends, which was apparently the only plot Mignola could think of for her.) Mignola actually okayed the ReTool of her character.
** Interestingly, in the comics Liz actually has something of a romantic sub-plot with Abe Sapien, professional fish-person and Hellboy's best friend. Still, this sub-plot is extremely subdued, but it does get played up a bit in the animated adaptations.

* Inverted with the Disney version of ''Disney/PeterPan'', which removes virtually any trace of romance between Peter and Wendy present in [[Literature/PeterPan the original book]]. Those only familiar with that version mistakenly believe this trope to be at play with the [[Film/PeterPan 2003 film version]] which was adapted closer to the novel.
* In the animated version of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheKillingJoke'' has [[spoiler:ComicBook/{{Batgirl}}]] pining over Franchise/{{Batman}}. In the [[ComicBook/BatmanTheKillingJoke source comic]] she barely even appeared in any panels that didn't relate to her [[spoiler:being shot by ComicBook/TheJoker]].
* As a part of RevisitingTheRoots, ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOBatmanMovie'' has Dick Grayson as a preteen and Barbara Gordon as a young adult. During the Silver Age, Batgirl was several years older than the then-teenage Robin. As a result, the movie does not have her and Robin as love interests like has been the norm since the 90s. Batgirl is instead ''Batman'''s love interest... sort of. Barbara has no interest in Batman while he is head-over-heels for her.
