** The Prince Eric in ''Disney/{{TheLittleMermaid}}'' was also ridiculously bland and anodine, who has few lines. And most lines that he had were generic and bland phrases to Ariel, besides little talk with her, although it is true that it has more lines than the previous princes of Disney, it seems that his personality and existence like in the original story, is that of a character of supporting, which in turn, it serves to get Ariel interested even more in coming to the surface. What makes this worse is that it is so bland and generic, which is for this reason that are made more prequels that sequels of The Little Mermaid.

* 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.

** BaseBreaker Guinevere is often accused of being "just a love interest" by detractors, and though it's true that most of her screen-time does indeed centre on her relationship with Arthur, the ultimate purpose of her CharacterArc was to become Queen of Camelot -- and it's unclear how her cynics expected this to happen ''without'' a relationship with Arthur arising (as you may have guessed, a lot of DieForOurShip was at work here). Her CharacterDevelopment involved a significant boost in confidence brought about by Arthur's love for her, and many of her strongest scenes (outsmarting the Witchfinder, freeing Sir Leon, confronting Agravaine, withstanding Morgana, trapping Ruadan) occurred when Arthur was completely absent. And by the end of the series, [[spoiler:she assumes control over Camelot after Arthur's death]] with confirmation by WordOfGod that she successfully ruled over the Golden Age [[spoiler:in his stead]]. She could qualify in the sense that she's NeverASelfMadeWoman, ''but'' her character was given plenty of '''personal''' development and independent power as a ''direct result'' of her role as Arthur's {{Love Interest|s}}.

* In ''Film/IceAge5CollisionCourse'', Brooke the sloth is good for one RousingSpeech, and otherwise only exists to get Sid laid. Julian the mammoth is a lesser example, as he actually gets some decent screentime [[spoiler:and helps make the final push to save the day]], but his character almost entirely revolves around his upcoming marriage with Peaches, which also drives Manny's character arc for the movie.
