* The title character of ''Manga/HellTeacherNube'' first falls in love with HotTeacher Ritsuko, who switches between appreciating him for being a good person and despise how his side-job is dealing with the ghosts she hates so much. When she finally starts to return his feelings, he had already moved on to Yukime.



* This trope is played almost completely straight in ''Manga/MarmaladeBoy'', ''especially'' in the backstory: [[spoiler: Ginta had a crush on Miki, who slipped a love letter in his school book. Ginta just ''happened'' to find it when he's with some male friends who begin to tease him about it. Under pressure, he says that he doesn't love Miki that way... only to see that Miki and Meiko ''are right there''. Miki, understandably, is ''very'' hurt - even after Ginta [[ImportantHaircut shaves his head]] to show how sorry he is. And some time later, it turns out Ginta ''still'' loves Miki even when her feelings are more friendly than romantic [[FlirtyStepsiblings and is beginning to fall for her stepbrother Yuu]]...]]
* A {{downplayed}} example occurs in ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', at the start of the series, Midoriya quickly gains a crush on Uraraka, though she remains [[ObliviousToLove unaware]], however this is dropped as the series progresses, and Uraraka gets [[OutOfFocus less attention in the story]]. When romantic elements are brought back into play a few arcs later, Uraraka has now developed a massive crush on Midoriya, who no longer seems to feel the same way, or at least doesn't show it.
* In ''Manga/MyLittleMonster'', Haru confesses his love to Shizuku but is rejected. Shizuku later begins to regret this and confesses her love to Haru however this time Haru rejects Shizuku.
* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'': Before the series began, Asahi Kuromine had a crush on ClassRepresentative [[IceQueen Nagisa Aizawa]], only to get shot down '''pre-emptively'''. Over the course of the series they become friends, she plays ShipperOnDeck to help him win the love of Youko Shiragami...and she ends up falling for Asahi herself, after getting to witness all his good qualities. She tries to get over her feelings[[note]]Ironically, he notes that her rejecting him so flatly was what allowed him to get over his own feelings[[/note]] for the sake of her mutual friends, but of course that's easier said than done.



* In ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', a Mawile falls in love with Brock's Lombre, who repeatedly spurns her advances. When Lombre evolves into a Ludicolo, he's ready to reciprocate Mawile's feelings, but Mawile has now fallen in love with a passing Psyduck.



* This happens in ''Manga/SekaiichiHatsukoi''. In high school, Ritsu was chasing his Sempai, Saga Masamune. After reuniting a decade later, it's his Sempai turned boss, now named Takano Masamune, that is [[{{Determinator}} determined]] to win him back.

* Played with in recent issues of ComicBook/SpiderMan. After OMD, Peter and MJ were on the outs. She moved on and developed a relationship with others while Peter wasn't ready to move on. Peter eventually decided to start a relationship with Carlie Cooper, while MJ started to reevaluate her feelings for Peter and eventually came to the realization that she still loved him during Spider-Island. The pair slowly tried getting back together, only for the events of Superior Spider-Man to drive them apart again. After Peter got his body back, MJ had already moved on and started a relationship with another man. Time will tell how the situation will resolve itself, but if they don't get back together, the fans may riot.

After, she hears an ailing Peter had donned a Spider-Man costume in order to save Betty Brant from Doctor Octopus and develops a crush on him. By this time, however, Peter's interest has waned considerably, as he notes that Liz never showed any real interest in him until he began dating Betty Brant and assumes that Liz's feelings are little more than a schoolgirl crush.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': Chapter 469 has Naruto's [[LovingAShadow long-time crush]] Sakura tell him that [[FalseConfession she's no longer interested in Sasuke and wants to be with him instead]]. After she spends the entire second half of the chapter trying to convince Naruto that [[BlatantLies she really does love him now]], [[WhatTheHellHero he calls her out for lying to him and to herself]] and [[ShipSinking outright rejects her]], because he ''knows'' that [[SingleTargetSexuality she still loves Sasuke]]. It shows Naruto's CharacterDevelopment in that he's not as starved for attention as he once was, and has moved past the GreenEyedMonster state that he was in back in Part I, where he constantly felt inferior to [[RivalTurnedEvil Sasuke]], especially since he is now a recognized hero in his own right.
