* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': Matt Murdock and Karen Page become a couple early on in season 2 (though it's temporarily broken apart later by Elektra reentering Matt's life). It starts with mundane stuff like [[HandsOnApproach Karen helping Matt sink the eight-ball]] during an after-work round of pool at Josie's in "Bang". Then in "[[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. This culminates in them having [[RomanticRain a passionate first kiss in the rain]] after watching the evening news on the Punisher's capture.

* The kiss between [[Anime/NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater Jean and Nadia]] may be treated as the moment where this upgrade takes place. Unfortunately, it was very inconveniently placed in the middle of an arc, with about 20% canon material. (And even then, it's treated as a cruel tease, as the writers quickly take them back to square one instantly afterwards.) Regardless, they end up as an official couple in the epilogue (although 31, and 35-39 also show the upgrade).

* The ''VisualNovel/MysticMessenger'' Christmas DLC features one for the main character and Jaehee... sort of. In the original game, Jaehee's route is extremely ambiguous: she repeatedly talks about their great friendship, at one point saying at the end that while romance between a man and a woman is powerful that the friendship between two women is also powerful, but also does many things that indicate romantic feelings, such as when she says near the end that she's so thankful to have met the main character and that she's slowly beginning to understand how she feels about her. In the Christmas DLC, however, romantic feelings are stated outright: [[spoiler:in an option reading '(Go to her and tell her your feelings)' the MC blushingly kisses Jaehee's cheek while she's asleep and has the option to say 'One day... I'm going to tell you how I truly feel...' After this, Jaehee says in a chat 'Perhaps... I've developed feelings over you without knowing.']] But though their feelings are each confirmed to the audience, neither hears on-screen of the others' feelings. ''But'', as Jaehee confessed in a public chat, it can be assumed that the main character would read it later and, presumably, they would get together. So while the actual coupling doesn't happen on-screen, the text finally confirms that they do feel that way and that it ''will'' happen.
