* There's multiple cases of this in ''Fanfic/TheStalkingZukoSeries''
** Both Zuko and Katara try to gently get Aang to understand that Katara doesn't feel the same way about him that he does about her ([[OfficialCouple or she does in canon]], but that's another matter). It ultimately takes Aang [[spoiler:kissing Katara]] for him to give up on getting into a relationship with her.
** Iroh tries repeatedly to convince Zuko that he shouldn't get back together with Mai merely for the sake of honor. Katara also disapproves, but [[PoorCommunicationKills doesn't quite express that well enough]], leading Zuko to temporarily rekindle his relationship with Mai.
** Not even Zutara, the main pairing of this fic, is exempt. Hakoda talks to Zuko and, [[IHaveThisFriend uses his friend Bato's relationship]] with [[OriginalCharacter Ming]] as an example of why relationships between Fire Nation and Water Tribe people won't workout- it's clear that he's implicitly suggesting that Zuko break up with Katara.



*** Mr Darcy doesn't like that George Wickham flirts with Elizabeth. He's jealous and he knows that Wickham is not an honest man.
*** Mrs Gardiner, Elizabeth's aunt, advises against Elizabeth's possible relationship with Wickham because neither of them has independent fortune.

* In VisualNovel/SchoolDays, Setsuna harrasses Kotonoha because she wants Makoto to hook up with her best friend [[spoiler: and half-sister]] Sekai instead. [[spoiler: In one path, Sekai's friends Nanami and Hikari as well as Otome's GirlPosse bully Kotonoha specifically because they want Makoto/Sekai to happen. [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom It doesn't go well... FOR SEKAI]].]]

* In the ''Anime/SailorMoon'' first anime, Usagi was rather crossed when her MuggleBestFriend Naru developed a huge crush on a PrincelyYoungMan named Masato Sanjouin... but [[DumbassHasApoint she had pretty good reasons]], as Sanjoin was actually Nephrite from the Dark Kingdom ''and'' put Naru's life at risk more than once. She even told Naru to her face that Sanjoin/Nephrite was a bad guy, and Naru said that she's right but that even then she can't fall out of love. [[spoiler: She still was moved to tears when Nephrite, via LoveRedeems, died in an HeroicSacrifice for Naru.]]

* Tamahome's OldMaster Tokaki and his wife Subaru are this in Manga/FushigiYuugi, among the sea of Miaka/Tamahome [[ShipperOnDeck Shippers on Deck]]. [[spoiler: It turns out they've got ''very'' good reasons: they were Byakko Seishi, witnessed how their fellow Seishi Tatara and their Miko Suzuno [[BodyguardCrush fell in love]]... [[StarCrossedLovers and it ended up BADLY]], so they don't want either Miaka or Tamahome [[LoveHurts to suffer like Suzuno and Tatara did]].]]

* ''{{Friends}}'': Phoebe is surprisingly anti [[{{HappilyMarried}} Chandler/Monica]], implying Monica can do better and predicting when they'll get divorced. This is very odd, as Chandler and Monica are extremely happy together and makes each other much better and more secure people. Yet Phoebe is the biggest ShipperOnDeck for the dysfunctional [[{{WillTheyOrWontThey}} Ross/Rachel]], who aren't nearly as well-suited, and her weird perspective is never really explained.

* Vidal Vordarian from ''Literature/TheVorkosiganSaga'' launches one of these straight between [[ScienceHero Cordelia, Lady Vorkosigan (nee Captain Cordelia Naismith)]] and [[OldSoldier Aral, Admiral & Lord Vorkosigan]]...by telling Cordelia at a ball that [[ValuesDissonance Aral is bisexual.]] It fails to detonate--Cordelia, [[FreeLoveFuture a Betan scientist,]] absent-mindedly agrees that [[BiTheWay yes, he was]], visibly shocking [[NobleBigot the very Barrayan Vordarian]]--but it's a rare example of a ShippingTorpedo that feeds into both characterization and a major plot point: once Cordelia ''realizes'' Vordarian was trying to destroy her marriage, she immediately suspects him of being exactly the kind of person who would engineer an assassination attempt on her recently-promoted-to-Imperial-Regent husband. [[spoiler: She's right.]]
