Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/CardCaptorSakura'':
** Sakura and Syaoran are both in love with Yukito at the start of the story, but [[spoiler:Yukito ends the story withSakura's brother, Touya. At this point, it can be considered a subversion, since Sakura realized she had no romantic interest in Yukito a bit prior to their relationship started and Syaoran fell for Sakura after they captured all Clow Cards]].
** Tomoyo is in love with [[spoiler:Sakura]], but she much prefers the BetterAsFriends and IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy approaches, and is, towards the end, happy to [[spoiler:help Sakura and Syaoran get together]].
* ''Anime/{{Kiznaiver}}'':
** Of the love triangle between Sonozaki, Katsuhira and Chidori, [[spoiler:the end game is Sonozaki/Katsuhira, leaving Chidori as this]].
** Of the love triangle between [[spoiler:Nico, Tenga and Chidori]], the end is left open over who will end up with whom, but considering that [[spoiler:Tenga had fallen for Chidori and she started developing feelings for him after the events of the show, as well as Nico openly stating she will value [[BetterAsFriends their friendship over any possible romance]], it's likely that Nico ends as this]].
* ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'': [[spoiler:Juzo becomes this when Chisa ends up as the one the love of his life, Munakata, falls in love with.]]

* Joy Mercer on ''Series/HouseOfAnubis''so very much. It gets to the point where [[spoiler:even when Nina was gone, Fabian refused to date Joy, as he believes they should be [[JustFriends just good friends and nothing else.]]]]

* Cupid from ;;WesternAnimation/EverAfterHigh'' seems to be headed this way. Dexter is [[ObliviousToLove oblivious]] to her crush on him, probably because he's too head over heels for Raven to notice. Raven reciprocates the feelings, and while they aren't [[OfficialCouple official]] yet, all signs seem to be pointing in that direction.

* Kentarou Nara from the anime/manga ''SchoolRumble''. Oddly enough, he was originally going to be the main character of the show, but was nonetheless relegated as a side character with little screen time or role in the story.

* Similarly, in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', Akane Tendo openly considers Ryoga Hibiki to be much nicer and sweeter then her CompassionateCritic and NoSocialSkills fiance Ranma Saotome, but she's more or less ObliviousToLove when it [[AllLoveIsUnrequited comes to him]]. That said, Ryoga does find somebody else...

** Martha Jones too. Gorgeous, funny, extremely intelligent, and brave. Which the Doctor knows- it's just that he still misses and loves Rose. No wonder [[spoiler: [[PairTheSpares Mickey and Martha end up married]]]].

** Zigzagged between Martha Jones too. and the Tenth Doctor. Gorgeous, funny, extremely intelligent, and brave. brave, Martha falls in love with the Doctor almost immediately. Which the Doctor knows- realizes - it's just that he still misses and loves Rose. No wonder [[spoiler: [[PairTheSpares Mickey and Martha end up married]]]].married]]]].
** Further Zigzagged between the Twelfth Doctor and Danny Pink with regards to Clara Oswald. The Doctor is still in love with Clara (a carryover from his previous incarnation who, per dialogue in the episode "Deep Breath", considered himself to be Clara's boyfriend), but initially steps back and intentionally distances himself from her emotionally, leaving her open to establishing a relationship with Danny. From the get-go, however, Danny and the Doctor are contrasted, with Clara maintaining feelings for both and trying to keep both men in her life. This does not end well, and when Danny is [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal but briefly revived as a Cyberman]], he finally finds out where he stands with Clara when she says to him (not realizing she's speaking to Danny): "I would never, ever, give up the Doctor, because he is my best friend, too. He is the closest person to me in this whole world. He is the man I will always forgive, always trust. The one man I would never, ever lie to." This after spending most of Series 8 lying to Danny.

Added DiffLines:

* Shouta from Momokuri is this to his best friend Rihito. Rihito has always been popular, and while Shouta's far from a bad catch, he's just not quite to the level of hot-guy Rihito. [[spoiler:Even Shouta's ChildhoodFriend Yuzuki, who everyone in the entire series has described as either being in love with him or not realizing she's in love with him, winds up dumping him for Rihito in the end.]]

* Yuuno Scrya from ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''. Nice guy, helpful, supportive; he was the one who gave Nanoha [[JumpedAtTheCall her calling]] but relationship-wise [[YuriFan it]] [[PanderingToTheBase just]] [[HetIsEw didn't]] [[ImprobablyFemaleCast go]] [[PutOnABus anywhere]].

* Julian in ''SomethingsGottaGive''. Diane Keaton dumps the much-younger, suave doctor KeanuReeves for JackNicholson. Sad Keanu, indeed.

* Misty from Manga/{{Vandread}} falls into this trope. She never really had a chance since she was introduced in Season 2, and her romantic rival, Dita, was a part of the ship's crew, and they didn't want to see her miserable (nor did she want to ostracize them any further). so she painfully gave up pursuing Hibiki, and while she tries to play off her pursuit of him as "being bored", she later goes to the park [[TheWoobie alone to cry.]]
