* Wrestling/{{Kane}} and DanielBryan's first few hugs played this hilariously straight, when they were forced to "Hug It Out". They did eventually get it right, however.

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.

* ''Series/{{Monk}}'': When Monk's brother Ambrose is first introduced, the somewhat estranged siblings try to hug. This doesn't go well, partially due to the fact that both of them suffer from SuperOCD, and they end up AirHugging.



* Between Parker and Jules in ''Series/{{Flashpoint}}'' who have something of a father-daughter relationship. Parker wanted to congratulate Jules on a job well done and Jules wanted to thank Parker for coaching her through a negotiation. Parker extended his hand for a handshake while Jules attempted to pull him in for a hug. Then they switch places with Parker going in for a hug and Jules offering her hand. They end up having a bit of an awkward moment when they finally settled for a hug, with Jules quickly leaving afterwards and Parker remaining frozen in place.

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.
