* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Averted in Series 5. After several episodes of teasing (and one attempted seduction), Rory Williams is properly introduced as Amy Pond's fiancee, resulting in an assumed AnchoredShip. When Rory [[spoiler: is erased from history]], he appears to fit the trope. Ultimately, however, [[spoiler: not only is Rory revived, he goes on to marry Amy ''and'' become the Doctor's father-in-law over time]], again averting the trope.
** Danny Pink in Series 8. Introduced as Clara's boyfriend after the first episode made it clear the colder new incarnation of the Doctor wasn't interested in romance. This soon was revealed to not be the case and, coupled with his refusal to join the TARDIS crew and his undisguised dislike of the Doctor, Danny ultimately finds himself on the losing side of an off-kilter LoveTriangle.

* Major Lilywhite in ''Series/IZombie'' initially ''appears'' to be the RomanticFalseLead -- he's introduced as Liv's blandly "perfect" fiance, who she dumps immediately after becoming a zombie. Except he then has his life collapse around him before [[TookALevelInBadass leveling up]], becoming a badass zombie-hunter, and getting back together with Liv after the ''actual'' false lead, the handsome zombie musician Lowell, dies.

* Bill Pullman's character in ''Film/SleeplessInSeattle'' is a decent guy, but he has bad sinuses, so its apparently alright for MegRyan to dump him for Creator/TomHanks. She does, at least, feel very bad about it. When she says she's not worthy of him, he doesn't contradict her, even if he accepts the inevitable break-up in good grace.
