** ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''. Although, Prince Erick appeared more time in the screen than the other princes, since he is saved by Ariel, his main objective is to be Ariel's love interest, the latter serves as a reference for Ariel to be even more animated to go to the surface.

* Yuno from ''Manga/FutureDiary'' basically has no personality outside of her devotion to Yukiteru. This is played [[{{Deconstruction}} as straight as possible]] to make [[{{Yandere}} her]] '''[[AxCrazy scary]]''' while being a {{deconstruct|edTrope}}ion of the trope. Her entire world revolves around Yukiteru, and if anyone threatens to take him away from her, she [[FreakOut flips her shit]] and equates it to her entire future being taken away. This is with good reason: before meeting Yukiteru, [[spoiler:Yuno had just killed her AbusiveParents, who were sitting dead in her house for three weeks. She had absolutely [[DespairEventHorizon no hope for her own future]], and was deeply moved when Yukiteru's hope for the future was for his family to get along]]. So when Yukiteru jokingly accepted her offer to become his bride, she was thrilled [[spoiler:since she finally had a reason to keep living her life]] -- her life very literally depends on having Yukiteru there for emotional support, he ''is'' her future [[spoiler: after she lost everything]]. It gets even more interesting in that Yuno ''[[GenreSavvy recognizes]]'' this fact and basically gives a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech "The Reason We Suck" Speech]] about how it was "pretend love" and she would have been fine with ''anyone'' as long as she could emotionally depend on him. Fortunately, it turns out that maybe their love isn't that meaningless after all.

* Taken to its logical extreme in Creator/DonBluth's ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}''. Bartok the Bat [[HeelFaceTurn abandons Rasputin]] near the end, and is [[SexualKarma rewarded]] with a {{pink|GirlBlueBoy}} bat who flies in and kisses him.

** Faline in the first ''Disney/{{Bambi}}'' movie doesn't really have a personality, especially when she grows up into a Doe. The midquel fleshes her out. Likewise neither Thumper's nor Flower's love interests have any personality, though they only appear very briefly.
** The Prince in ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'' only appears at the ball as someone for Cinderella to fall for and escape her stepfamily by marrying. Both the sequels ([[Disney/CinderellaIIIATwistInTime particularly the third film]]) and the [[{{Disney/Cinderella2015}} live-action remake]] go out of their way to subvert this, the former giving him a DeadpanSnarker and LeaningOnTheFourthWall personality, the latter giving him a subplot of his own.
** Vixey from ''Disney/TheFoxAndTheHound'' has barely any personality, due to being introduced around the time Tod was put in the nature reserve. She is implied to have known Big Mama for some time, but that's pretty much all we know about her besides the fact she and Tod love each other.
** ''Disney/SleepingBeauty''. Ironically both lovers kind of fit this bill - because the story is really a PerspectiveFlip on the efforts of the three Good Fairies to save them from Maleficent. The prince does get to do a little more than his two predecessors (he even gets a name!) but most of the plot is driven by the fairies - making Philip and Aurora essentially {{Living MacGuffin}}s.



** ''Disney/{{Bambi}}''
*** Faline doesn't really have a personality beyond GenkiGirl in the first film, especially when she grows up into a doe and sheds even that, and sparsely interacts with anyone besides Bambi. The midquel fleshes her personality out a little more and gives her more screen time with the other characters, although she remains fixated around Bambi and is still often kept OutOfFocus.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' - one of the main criticisms concerning Lunafreya Nox Fleuret outside of the [[ReplacementScrappy controversy concerning certain production decisions]]is that Luna's character literally revolves around Noctis and that she has little agency outside of helping him achieve his destiny. While this isn't so bad in itself, the problem most have is that she and Noctis have little chemistry and share almost no scenes together when they are both adults [[spoiler: when both are alive]], so the audience doesn't get a good read on what the two would actually be like as a couple.

* Koyuki Ayase from the ''Music/ConfessionExecutiveCommitteeLoveSeries'' becomes this in the "The Moment You Fall in Love" arc's adaptations. He's practically defined by Hina's crush on him, having little else to do in the story than call out to her or say hi while she fruitlessly pursues him. While he does get a mini arc to himself, it's more or less detached from the rest of the setting, and only plays a small part in his arc with Hina.

** Prince Eric in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' is borderline. He is featured far more in the story than the other princes listed here (except for the prince of Cinderella in part 3 where he has more protagonism). But still his main function is to be a love interest for Ariel - even falling into DistressedDude a couple of times.

* [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' where Cho latches on Harry due to serious psychological problems, rather than merely being smitten; also, Harry only knew her on a shallow basis before dating her, and neither could handle the stress.
