* ''Western/{{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).

* On ''TotalDrama,'' [[LatinLover Alejandro]] (Hispanic) and [[AlphaBitch Heather]] (Asian) have a strong case of BelligerentSexualTension. (Despite being different races, it counts best as Tailor-Made Partner--Alejandro was introduced after Heather and is repeatedly played up as her [[DistaffCounterpart Spear Counterpart]].)

** On the ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' episode "The Visitor", the alternate future version of Jake Sisko marries a black Bajoran woman, probably the first to be seen on the show outside of blink-and-you'll-miss-it actors in the background.

** [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Tuvok's]] wife also had a rather dark complexion. This could be a result of the show's creators realizing that the notoriously sunny, arid planet Vulcan would favor a darker skin tone - most times you see a Vulcan in Voyager or Enterprise, they at least have a decent tan.

This could be a result of the show's creators realizing that the notoriously sunny, arid planet Vulcan would favor a darker skin tone - most times you see a Vulcan in Voyager or Enterprise, they at least have a decent tan. However, the only non-Tuvok Vulcans ever played by black actors in franchise history, before or since, are Tuvok's wife and Tuvok's son.

*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.

** It's later implied by Loki that Wiccan may have subconsciously used his powers to make Hulkling fall in love with him, though this is never confirmed. And of course, it's [[ConsummateLiar Loki]].
