* The ''Website/{{Neopets}}'' Lost Desert plot was about a cursed prince named Jazan whose only hope of breaking the spell on him was to marry a princess of Sakhmet. When Princess Amira refused, he planned to force her into marriage. Meanwhile, two thieves named Tomos and Nabile learn Jazan's backstory. The latter is especially moved and wants to save him from his curse. [[http://www.neopets.com/desert/ldp/index.phtml?chapter=14 Nabile voices her disapproval at the wedding]], and as it turns out, at that moment it is discovered that she is in fact a descendant of an exiled princess. Having just met, Nabile and Jazan instantly fall in love and are married ''minutes later''.

** Vegeta and Bulma actually became a fan favorite relationship partly due to this trope. The romantic competition (poor Yamcha) was dumped so suddenly, and the sudden hook up was so unlikely (they had barely spoken, and he had killed her boyfriend and many of her friends) that it ended up being hilarious.

** Enzo and Bonnie. In season 5 and 6, they are frenemies at best and TheFriendsWhoNeverHang at worst. Most episodes in Season 6 focus on Bonnie's close [[PlatonicLifePartners platonic relationship]] with Damon, and her few interations with Enzo are not very friendly if not outright antagonistic. However in season 7 they fall in love during the three year TimeSkip (we only see a flashback of their first date in one episode) and remain madly in love for the rest of the show to the point they can't live without each other.

* ''Series/{{Friends}}'':
** The infamous [[NoSparks Joey and Rachel]] romance. Season 8 has Joey developing feelings for Rachel, which was kind of unbelievable but, thanks to Matt's acting skill, pretty emotive. Rachel gently turned him down and the incident was barely mentioned again until Season 9 when Joey got a new girlfriend and all of a sudden, Rachel gets a crush on Joey! They hooked up in the finale, stayed together for maybe 3 episodes...and then broke up because, they uh, couldn't do it 'sexually'. What? Made worse as Rachel had ''exactly'' the same problem with Ross in S2 but made it through. However, the writers always planned to get Ross and Rachel together in the end, making the whole thing a ShaggyDogStory. About the only thing it achieved was making Rachel look unnecessarily shallow and fickle.

** Stefan and Elena in the first two episodes. Elena meets Stefan, a mysterious new student, they have two awkward conversations, and the next day they both already knew they were meant to be. They agree that "We met. We talked. It was epic" before sharing their first kiss and becoming a couple. However, despite the rushed beginning, the rest of the relationship was well written.

** Daenerys and Jon Snow are even worse. The showrunners, writers, the actors, and other characters insist from the moment these two meet that Dany and Jon are obviously already crushing on one another. The actual on-screen chemistry however is extremely lacking and even antagonistic. Not only that but both have already been involved in serious relationships (Dany for love and politics and more than once) and being royalty in a time of crisis, for the two of them to suddenly develop spontaneous crushes on one another comes across as painfully immature.

This is a particularly irritating example because it's now been confirmed that, as many book readers surmised, Daenerys and Jon and their eventual relationship are one of the things that the ''Song of Ice and Fire'' title refers to and their coming together to defeat the white walkers is the ultimate point of the series. So their relationship is one thing which absolutely should ''not'' have been handled ham-fistedly.

* ''Series/StepByStep'' had Dana Foster and Rich, who was her stepbrother's dimwitted friend. After spending five seasons barely able to stand being in the same room as each other, they suddenly started dating in season six... and still acted like they could barely stand to be in the same room as each other. In some episodes it really bordered on Informed Relationship.
