* Jumin's route in ''VisualNovel/MysticMessenger''. While every romance route in this game suffers to some extent from taking place over only 11 days and having to be sidelined at times for non-romance plot developments, Jumin's gets the worst of it. Basically, he goes from being so disinterested in women that he was rumored to be gay to being so obsessed with the female player character that he's displaying ''wedding rings'' as his profile picture after less than two weeks of knowing her, before they've even gone on a proper date! Not only that, but while Zen and Yoosung act flirty with you from Day 1, Jumin doesn't even begin to show clear romantic attraction to the player character until they meet in person on Day 5 which means that he's seriously contemplating marriage with her after only ''six'' days of actual romantic interaction with her.

** Tellingly, when Judd Lynn took over as showrunner from Johnathan Tzachor for ''Dino Charge'', he instilled a good amount of establishment of Tyler and Shelby's eventual hook-up, not only righting the wrongs of the previous four seasons before it, but also its ''Sentai'' source material, ''Kyoryuger'', as described below in the ''Super Sentai'' section.

*** There's also a secondary relationship that Daiyu and Decker had, since it was revealed that they'd loved each other hundreds of years prior to the series. The problem? Decker doesn't remember his life before becoming half Nighlok due to amnesia and Daiyu ''doesn't even remotely try to remind him'' about their past together. It's not helped that this development wasn't even remotely in ''Shinkenger,'' the series' source material, so it didn't have that kind of relationship between their counterparts. The seasons relied so heavily on retelling the ''Shinkenger'' storyline that even the changes they ''did'' make either didn't add up to much, or were to the series' detriment.

** ''Samurai''/''Super Samurai'' had a forced last-minute hook-up with Mike and Emily int he last episode, despite the fact that they'd never shown a romantic interest in each other prior. The only hint at this eventual hook-up was Scott in ''Clash of the Red Rangers'' suggesting Emily looked at him like she had a crush on him, despite no direction, camera shots, or dialogue having suggested it not only the entire season prior, but even in that special itself.

* Some seasons of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' have this in effect.
** In ''Zeo'', a future seen in a Christmas episode had Tommy eventually married to Catherine, when they'd never really shown a romantic attraction before and Tommy's only love interest in the show up until that point had been Kimberly during ''Mighty Morphin'', who'd moved out of Angel Grove by the time that episode had come around.

** ''Megaforce''/''Super Megaforce'' has it arguably worse. Though it's shown Jake has a crush on Gia in the first season, it's an unrequited crush (also trying to be helped by the fact that their counterparts in ''Goseiger'' were ''brother and sister'' and, thus, they belonged to the same clan, which derived their ground motifs and had their mechs work in tandem a lot). After that, Gia apparently shows reciprocation of his feelings, but ''doesn't even bother to tell him''. By the time ''Super'' comes around, the show was ''way'' too focused on cannibalizing the ''Gokaiger'' footage and plots it was adapting to try to make on seamless continuity between it and the previous season to focus on ''anything'' in that direction, not helped by the fact that none of ''Gokaiger's'' characters had romantic feelings for each other. By the time the finale came around, there was ''nothing'' suggesting that they were going to get together, so when Gia kisses Jake on the cheek, it comes right the hell out of nowhere, which is arguably worse than ''Samurai's'' situation, since it was given a bit of development, dropped, then picked back up at the ending of the season, where as ''Samurai'' just had it barely established, then had it dropped into the last episode.

* ''Film/FourWeddingsAndAFuneral''. Charles and Carrie sleep together after the first wedding. The next time they see each other is at the second wedding, three months later, when they have sex again, despite her now being engaged. Several more months go by before their next encounter, probably the first thing close to a proper date that they've had, even though he's helping her choose a wedding dress--and this is when he declares his love for her. There's zero interaction between them at the third wedding (hers), a brief one at the funeral, and when she shows up at the fourth wedding (his), despite there having been sufficient time for him to get over her (ten months), he ditches his fianceé at the altar. That's a total of FIVE times he's ever laid eyes on this woman, but it's enough for to decide that he wants to spend the rest of his life with her.

** The venerable Yuya/Yuzu suffers from this a fair bit. At the start of the series, they're treated as more or less being close childhood friends who seem to be growing into something more. Even though they're fairly independent from each other in the first arc, the relationship is clearly progressing slowly. But around 50 episodes in, they get separated, and more or less stay that way for the entire rest of the series, bar a few brief encounters. Towards the end of the series, their relationship is treated as cosmic destiny, something it hardly resembled in the brief period where the two were actually able to interact with each other, and even their final meeting in the series is just a handshake and a few short sentences. This was immensely frustrating to the fanbase, which actually largely liked Yuya and Yuzu as a pairing, and was all too eager to create material that actually would warrant their relationship being treated as such.

* Being a loving sendup of swashbuckler stories, ''Film/ThePrincessBride'' has this going on with Buttercup and Westley. Almost all of their relationship development happens in the prologue, when Buttercup realizes that the local farmboy is in love with her, and then they kiss. In the rest of the movie, they're separated for all but two scenes, and the entire plot is driven by their true love and their need to be back together. This is pretty much in-line with how the genre tends to have the audience TakeOurWordForIt that the DistressedDamsel is the hero's true love and primary motivation, further suggested in that Westley and Buttercup exclusively [[BeautyEqualsGoodness describe each other's physical appearance]] when speaking of each other. Weirdly, the actors are so passionate and sincere that they mostly manage to sell the romance anyway.
