* In ''Film/SpiderMan2'', Mary Jane asks her fiance to kiss her upside down, reenacting her awesome kiss with Spiderman. He feels it; she doesn't.
** The trope is invoked again a little later in the movie, when Mary Jane asks Peter Parker to kiss her, knowing that it would prove he does, in fact, love her, though he just denied it. This is a special case of TestKiss, because she is testing his identity as well as his love for her. They're [[AlmostKiss interrupted]] by a car crashing through the window of the diner they're meeting in.

* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': This story's point of divergence from canon is Asuka and Shinji's TestKiss. Asuka talks Shinji into kissing, and during the kiss he realizes it is a hint of her feelings and kisses her back.

[[BigDamnKiss pretty much the exact opposite trope]].

* Even happened on LittleHouseOnThePrairie. John Junior tells Mary he loves her; she doesn't know what she feels, so he proposes this trope. It was a first for both of them.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': In episode 15, Asuka and Shinji kiss, but due to their personal traumas it goes awfully wrong. Asuka wanted to kiss Shinji but she did not want to look interested, in case that he rejected her, so she told she wanted to kiss him because she was bored. Shinji wanted to kiss her but he did not believe she was interested in him, so he initially resisted. They went forward with the kiss but Asuka held Shinji's nose the whole time to pretend it was not a big deal in case that he turned her down. And precisely because she was pretending it was not a big deal, Shinji did not dare to do anything, and he remained motionless and unresponsing. And precisely because he remained motionless, Asuka thought that he was turning her down, so that she ran off. Cue Shinji's self-esteem getting another blow and Asuka giving another step towards her mental breakdown.

* In ASongOfIceAndFire, Daenarys is considering an ArrangedMarriage with political advantages. She asks the suitor to kiss her. [[spoiler: She doesn't feel anything, and tells him as much. He is not particularly upset by this, and persuades her to go ahead with the marriage anyway because it's the best way to stop her city getting torn apart.]]

* In the third season of ''That70sShow'', Jackie and Hyde do this, and state that they felt nothing - though it looks like Hyde is not entirely sincere. They still get together in the fifth season.
* ''TheWestWing'': C.J. and Danny, who have had {{UST}} buzzing between them for quite some time, do this so CJ can convince herself that one kiss will "get it out of [her] system" and things can then go back to normal. Since she [[spoiler:winds up married to the guy]], obviously, her plan doesn't work so well; in fact, they're so hot for each other they keep randomly grabbing and kissing each other pretty much throughout the show.
* In ''{{ER}}'', Carter and Lewis make one. They remain good friends after it.
