* Inverted in ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokurasetai''. Both Kaguya and Shirogane are aware of each other's love and want nothing more than to provoke a LoveConfession to be the dominant one in the relationship (in a non-sexual way). However, they are entirely unaware of -[[{{Tsundere}} and can't admit]]- ''their own'' feelings.

* Kind of exists between Kenichi and Miu of ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple''. It's slightly subverted in that they're very good friends, but Kenichi is too nervous to take it to a romantic level, and Miu is [[ClingyJealousGirl incredibly jealous]] of any other girls who hang around with Kenichi, but she doesn't take the initiative either. Also a case of EveryoneCanSeeIt, as all of the masters are totally aware of it, and are watching to see what will happen.

* In a ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' arc, Paige and a boy in her class were in this situation, but overcame it and went to a school dance together. After this arc, [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome the boy disappeared]] and Paige went back to her usual state of being unable to get a date.
* In the early ''ComicBook/XMen'' stories, Scott and Jean could very well serve as the page image.

Both Kaguya and Miyuki are well aware that the other has a crush on them (and spend their time trying to force them to confess) but neither of them is aware ([[{{Tsundere}} or can admit to themselves]]) that the opposite is also true.

** The captain of the Furano team, Matsuyama, has this going with his assistant Yoshiko, At first it seems that he's ObliviousToLove regarding Yoshiko's feelings for him, but some ShipTease-ladden flashbacks state that he likes her too. The fact that [[spoiler: she has to leave for the USA due to her father's work]] doesn't help.

To a degree, also Sanae and Tsubasa fell into this trope during their RelationshipUpgrade manga chapter.chapter. She's been ''very'' smitten with him since childhood, but he seems to have only very recently caught up [[spoiler: thanks to Kumi's AnguishedDeclarationOfLove to him]] and since he's going to live abroads, he isn't sure of how to tell her.

** [[ShrinkingViolet Olivia]] can potentially have this going with [[MasterSwordsman Lon'qu.]] Specially bad because Lon'qu CannotTalkToWomen in general [[spoiler: for his DarkAndTroubledPast, in which his FirstLove Ke'ri was murdered before his eyes]] (though it seems Olivia ignores this "little detail"). Whether they properly develop a romantic relationship or not, it depends on the player.
** Olivia and [[LonelyRichKid Chrom]] as well, if the player manage to get their supports. ([[GuideDangIt Easier said than done]]).
