* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda'' is cartoon infamous for this. Zelda and Link are given an AgeLift and Link is constantly asking for a kiss. In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI'' there is nothing to suggest anything between them besides Lin saving Zelda, plus they're both in their "young" forms rather than their teenage versions.

* Almost ''none'' of the couples in the ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' animated series are present in the comic; Miss Martian and Comicbook/{{Superboy}} are paired up together despite the former being single and the latter being in a relationship with WonderGirl II in the comic; the Artemis from the comic is a villain and never had a relationship with Kid Flash; on the other hand, Speedy and Cheshire did get together and have a daughter in the comic. Comicbook/{{Robin}} (Dick Grayson) and Comicbook/{{Zatanna}} are an interesting variation. In the series, Zatanna is a teenager roughly the same age as the rest of the main cast, rather than being around the same age as Batman. Zatanna has been a romantic interest for Batman in certain continuities. [[spoiler: Dick and Zatanna only dated for a short time on the series anyways.]] The tie-in comic also reveals that he dated Rocket at some point and currently has an ill-defined thing with Batgirl.

* 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.
