* ''AceAttorneyInvestigations'' plays out what would be a StrictlyFormula version of the trope, if not for two exceptions: there are no romantic overtones whatsoever ([[ShipTease maybe]]), and the "handkerchief" is Edgeworth's ''cravat'', which he was still ''wearing'' when [[spoiler: young Kay]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny blew her nose into it.]].

* GenderFlipped in ''Anime/BlueExorcist''--[[{{Tsundere}} Izumo]] and her friend are attacked in the changing room, and [[AntiAntiChrist Rin]] is the first one to hear and come help. Since Izumo is in her underwear and freaked out by her inability to fight off the threat, Rin [[YouMustBeCold gives her his shirt]] so that she can quickly leave before anyone else sees her. She later returns it, freshly laundried, along with some complaints about how hard it was to clean.

* This is how Ikki and Karin meet in ''{{Medabots}}''.
* There's a mutant, and averted, version of this in ''VictorianRomanceEmma''. Realizing that a well-to-do caller on her mistress has genuinely forgotten his gloves, she rushes out to return them. Initially, she fails, but manages to actually do so later. A further mutation of this occurs when she and the man in question begin to start up a friendship, which looks to be very quickly heading for romantic territory when Emma tells him she's always wanted a silk handkerchief for her own. He buys it for her on the spot.
