* [[FriendsWithBenefits Ricky and Adrian]] in ''TheSecretLifeOfTheAmericanTeenager''. They mostly ether just argued and or had sex. They never went on dates and Ricky never wanted to be seen in public with her. Their relationship consisted mostly of them cheating on each other and claiming each sexual conquest as retaliation. When her father asked her what she liked about Ricky, beside looks, Adrian couldn't answer. They mostly seemed to show genuine affection through jealousy towards those they viewed as threats to their relationship. [[spoiler: Their relationship later ended when Adrian had sex with their mutual friend, Ben.]]

* Subverted and played for laughs with Gomez and Morticia Addams. They're a loving and committed couple with great passion, and part of that loving relationship is quite literally torturing one another.

* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' contains a very creepy example of this: [[spoiler:Lambdadelta]] and [[spoiler:Bernkastel]] fight each other in a game whenever they come across each other [[spoiler:in the ocean of the kakera]]. The penalties for the loser are very severe cases of a FateWorseThanDeath. And yet they always assure how much they "love" each other. However, as we learn later in the story, this may be justified as theirs means [[spoiler:to escape the boredom that can literally kill them. By fighting each other, they relieve that boredom in order to survive and spend time with each other.]] And in the very end, they get their AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther-moment.
