* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has the Twelfth Doctor react in an un-hug manner when Clara hugs him for the first time (in fact he takes the exact same pose as the man in the top photograph here). He gets better at it as time goes by.

Can overlap with ManHug, where men develop a special way of hugging to keep this from happening out of embarrassment. Also see AirHugging. Maybe the natural result is NoHuggingNoKissing is violated.

Sister trope to GreetingGestureConfusion, in which two characters misjudge the correct gesture to use when meeting one another. Can overlap with ManHug, where men develop a special way of hugging to keep this from happening out of embarrassment. Also see AirHugging. Maybe the natural result is NoHuggingNoKissing is violated.

** At the end of ''Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets'', Hermione runs up to Harry and gives him a big hug, and then turns to Ron, who holds out his arms a little bit. They end up shaking hands instead of hugging. This is a indicative of Hermione's feelings - hugging Harry is just hugging a friend, but Ron might be more and she's not yet ready to deal with this.
** In ''Deathly Hallows: Part 2'', Voldemort attempts to hug Draco, who just sort of stands there. It's obvious that Draco just wishes he weren't there at the moment and that Voldemort has absolutely no experience with giving hugs.
