* In ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'', Nino and Alya suddenly realize they have a lot in common with each other after an episode that had revolved around a misunderstanding (Nino had a crush on Marinette, Adrien was coaching him, Marinette thought she was going to meet her longtime crush Adrien and Alya was helping her out, and... it's complicated, but HilarityEnsues.)

The point is, Nino and Alya have ''nothing'' in common besides being the only two black characters in the series, and had little interaction prior to this episode, in which they suddenly decide out of nowhere that they were in love at the end.

* Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio only seemed to have ShipTease with the Latina women on the roster - Wrestling/RosaMendes and the Wrestling/BellaTwins. In real life it's a different story - he dated the very white Paige.

** Notably subverted in ''[[ComicBook/TeenTitansGo the comic book continuation]],'' where Cyborg has a steady girlfriend, Sarah Simms, who was Caucasian. Yet, Bumblebee and Herald (also black) are implied to be going out later on as a nod toward their being married in mainstream DC comics.

* Subverted in ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'', unlike in the original ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' cartoon. Shana and Tony are still an OfficialCouple but they meet on their own and their relationship is more natural. Most of the pairings are in fact interracial. There's Kimber (white) and Stormer (half-Middle Eastern, half-Israeli), Rio (AmbiguouslyBrown latino) and Jerrica (white), Jerrica and her crush on Riot (half-white, half-Asian), and Aja (Chinese) and Craig (half-Middle Eastern, half-Israeli).

* Bumblebee from the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' cartoon basically flirts with Comicbook/{{Cyborg}} in every episode she's in, despite the fact that the two never shared a romance in the comics. WordOfGod is [[RelationshipWritingFumble was unintentional though]].

They knew people were going to ship them because they're both black and tried to make them ship as unappealing as possible, but their bickering just came off as SlapSlapKiss instead.



* ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' had a bad one when Shana met a Black guy at a party. No sooner did the gang see him, that the other girls basically shoved Shana into his path. They of course became the only permanent recurring couple of the show. {{Averted}} in other cases though. Jerrica is the girlfriend of the AmbiguouslyBrown Rio and Aja (who is asian) is dating Craig (who is White).
