* ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic'' inverts this with Amy and Sonic. In [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog the games]] Amy has a PrecociousCrush on Sonic and being a lovesick preteen is one of her more defining features. In the comics she is implied to [[TheGadfly only be teasing]] Sonic and once her [[CharacterizationMarchesOn personality was altered]] thanks to ExecutiveMeddling even that was gone.

Inverted with Starfire and Robin. Robin is head-over-heels for Starfire but many jokes are made about how Starfire only likes him platonically.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' did this to two supporting characters, Grey Worm and Missandei. In [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire the books]], Missandei is only a ten-year-old child and there's not much interaction between them. In the show, she's given an AgeLift and the writers paired her with Grey Worm which started when she taught him to speak the Common Language.

** Not sure what Bradbury thought of the "love interest" part of it, but he considered rewriting the book to have her [[spoiler:survive]], and effectively did so with his theater adaptation.



** In a rare subversion, though, her role as a love interest is subtly portrayed. By [[Film/JurassicParkIII the third movie]], Ellie Sattler is married (presumably happily) to a different man, and is raising a family. Even her larger role in the first film may be more about giving the female characters something to do other than be TheChick (Lex is likewise made important and capable in the film, largely by switching her age and most of her other character attributes with those of her brother from the book).
