* ''DOADeadOrAlive''
** In the ''DeadOrAlive'' games the movie is based on, Ryu Hayabusa (same of ''NinjaGaiden'') protects Kasumi because he made a promise to her brother, his best friend Hayate, to look after her. The film keeps that backstory, but makes it clear Hayabusa is also watching out for her because he has feelings for her (which she ends up returning).
** In the games, Ayane and Hayate are half-siblings (and cousins, it's complicated). The movie removes their blood relation and turns them into a couple.
** The movie seems so determined to include romantic subplots for just about every main character that it even invented new characters to serve as love interests for Christie and Helena: conman/master thief Max (who is also Christie's frequent partner-in-crime) and tech genius Weatherby, respectively.
** Surprisingly averted, however, with Tina and Zack. Zack still flirts with her, but Tina wants nothing to do with him.

* 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]].

* Also Inverted in ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' where early episodes went out of their way to ship sink Peter and MJ. Given his teammates were often jerks in the first season, this led to it looking a lot like [[TheNotLoveInterest Harry Osborn was the closet thing to a love interest]]. However in the end Peter seems to just not be shipped with anyone by the show.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' usually follows the NoHuggingNoKissing rule to the extreme - justified since the characters are cyborgs who don't reproduce that way - but in the second and third movies, Matau noticeably flirts with Nokama quite a bit and there are some pretty noticeable hints that Nokama herself is into Vakama. The third movie also involves an UnholyMatrimony plot with the villains. (Other ''Bionicle'' media does include this stuff, but pretty much only to keep consistent with the movies. In the case of the UnholyMatrimony, WordOfGod writes off "marriage" as strictly political in this 'verse.)
** Also in the first movie, there are some incredibly obvious hints that Hahli and Jaller like each other, though this was back before the hugging/kissing rule was really brought in.

Added DiffLines:

* Averted only through the author's stubbornness in the movie adaptation of [[Film/EndersGame Ender's Game]]. Executives originally wanted to give Ender a love interest but the original author refused. Though Ender's friend Petra's role got expanded in the adaptation and her personality was changed so their relationship strongly resembled a romantic one, despite being entirely platonic.

* ''Film/SisterAct the Musical'' rewrites Lt. Eddie Souther as an old high school classmate of Deloris who secretly has a crush on her, and at the end, the two end up becoming a couple. They had no such relationship in the original film.

* The 1960 film adaptation of Creator/HGWells's ''TheTimeMachine'' is an Alternate {{Trope Namer|s}}. In the book, an Eloi woman named Weena shares a close relationship with the Time Traveler, but not a romance, at least not overtly. Largely because Weena, like all Eloi, was a child-sized androgynous-looking creature mentally on the level of an eight-year old. However, the film turns Weena into a love interest, looking human except still with the mentality of a child.

* Pretty much every movie version of ''Literature/TheLastOfTheMohicans'' de-ages [[Literature/TheLeatherstockingTales Hawkeye]] and pairs him up with one of the female characters. Which is silly, because there's already a romance, two even, and he's [[IAmNotShazam not actually the main character]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse anyway]].

* The musical adaptation of ''SchoolOfRock'' does this to Dewey's boss Ms. Mullins. Aside from them kissing a couple times and them making her younger and around Dewey's age, this does not alter the plot that much from the film.
