* ''Series/SchoolOfRock'' with Summer and Freddy. Throughout the series, it has been shown that Summer has had a huge crush on Freddy, who [[ObliviousToLove never notices even though it is VERY OBVIOUS at times]]. Come "Total Eclipse of the Heart", Summer FINALLY gets over Freddy, to the point she even tears down her picture of him in her locker. Freddy then realises that he and Kale have nothing in common so they break up, but not without Kale encouraging him to find someone who likes the same things he does. He then goes to Summer, only to find her with another guy.

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


Added DiffLines:

* This trope is played almost completely straight in ''Manga/MarmaladeBoy'', ''specially'' 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]]...]]

* Played with in ''Manga/YonaOfTheDawn''. Hak doesn't move on from his feelings toward Yona ''per se'', but he seems to have throughly abandoned all hope of her ever returning them. Now [[spoiler: Yona]] is the one who's hopelessly crushing on ''him'', while he's become ObliviousToLove.

* Happens in ''TheGuild'' after Codex breaks off her "fake relationship with a fictional version of [[spoiler:Fawkes]]," who normally only does one-night stands. However, to the latter's surprise, Codex proves "interesting," so he makes an attempt to pursue her further, only to be told off. Although nothing's certain until Season 5, this also seems to happen with [[spoiler:Codex and Zaboo, after Zaboo finally (mostly) gets over Codex at about the same time she concludes (privately) that he passes her "litmus test."]]

* In the first issue of ArchieComics, "Pep Comics 28". Archie had just moved into the neighborhood; albeit a couple years younger than he was in later issues and with the nickname "Chic" and tries in his first issue to impress his neighbor Betty Cooper to try to get her to date him through dangerous stunts which she believes make him look arrogant. After Veronica moves in during "Archie Comics 1", the whole dynamic was changed to a BettyAndVeronica format where Betty has a really big and sometimes obsessive crush on Archie.
* ComicBook/{{X 23}} had a crush on [[JerkJock Hellion]], who believed she was a mindless, apathetic robot and was not shy about saying so. This was the source of much painful confusion for X-23, and after getting some CharacterDevelopment, she left [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} the school]] so she could sort out her [[{{Tykebomb}} tra]][[DarkAndTroubledPast uma]]. Later on, Hellion (who was just beginning his ''own'' Journey Of Self Discovery) went through a TraumaCongaLine in which everything he had once believed about the world was turned upside down, and went off to find her. The comic makes it rather clear that he isn't interested in her out of genuine love, but rather a desperate need to no longer be alone- and once Hellion shows up, a ''far'' more confident X-23 rejects him. This probably counts as a {{Deconstruction}}.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ForScentimentalReasons'', WesternAnimation/PepeLePew is chasing Penelope, as usual. He winds up plunging into a blue paint bucket, which masks his smell. Penelope falls in the neighboring rain bucket, rendering her ragged and soaked and not so pretty. The switcheroo follows, as she chases him.
