Most commonly broadcasted with a FirstKiss, but every once in a while you find a more… drastic variant (GladToBeAliveSex comes to mind). Compare RelationshipReveal--a moment where an implied but existing couple becomes canon. A move from casual to serious can involve IGotYouADrawer. Also compare TheyDo--the point past which the RomanceArc is concluded and the relationship becomes a constant that feeds ''other'' plot threads. Contrast DerailingLoveInterests-- where a relationship Downgrade happens to a RomanticFalseLead so an OfficialCouple can be hooked up. Though they often coincide (e.g. in a LastMinuteHookup) the two are far from synonymous; a RelationshipUpgrade can be the beginning of hardships, trials and tribulations that the relationship may not survive at all.

* An unusual example in ''Film/AttackOnTitan2015'': in the original manga/anime, Eren and Mikasa are adoptive siblings in an AmbiguousSituation. The film version removes the sibling angle and ambiguity, and makes them a full-blown OfficialCouple.

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': [[BlindJustice Matt Murdock]] [[OfficeRomance and]] [[SexySecretary Karen Page]] become a couple early on in season 2 (though they're temporarily driven apart later by Elektra reentering Matt's life). They had signs of tension in season 1, though they didn't have time to act on their feelings because they were all preoccupied with taking down Wilson Fisk. By the start of season 2, they've gotten to the point that Matt's willing to let [[HandsOnApproach Karen guide him to sink the 8-ball]] during [[Recap/Daredevil2015S2E1Bang an after-work round of pool at Josie's]]. By "[[Recap/Daredevil2015S2E4PennyAndDime Penny and Dime]]", the two are flirting whenever they're alone or Foggy has just stepped away from them to handle something else. Their way of celebrating Frank Castle's capture, after a round of drinks at Josie's, is to share [[RomanticRain a passionate first kiss in the rain]].

* {{Subverted}} when Hellion attempts to push one in issue 19 of ''Comicbook/{{X 23}}''. Throughout the arc Laura has been standoffish and avoiding talking to Julian, who spends the entire arc trying to talk to ''her''. Finally, he tries to invoke this trope by planting a ForcefulKiss on her, and tells her how much the kiss is going to change things. Laura, however, permanently breaks off their relationship instead by telling him she no longer has feelings for him. Julian's angry outburst in response finishes off their friendship, as well (though Laura admits to Gambit she still cares for him at the end of the issue).
