* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'': This incarnation of Zelda is much like her cartoon counterpart, being aloof and haughty towards Link, with a dose of InferioritySuperiorityComplex replacing the snark. This is for two reasons. First, Link was assigned to be her guard and knight and was ordered to stay at her side at all times, and Zelda views herself as independent enough to not need someone to protect her. Second, [[spoiler:she is (at first) unable to tap into the power of her Royal bloodline while Link was able to tap into the powers of the Hero incarnation much sooner than her. To her eyes, Link was a constant reminder of her failures.]] After Link saves her from Yiga ninjas, she has a JerkassRealization and warms up to him.

* Ysabelle the squirrel maiden acts this way toward Vesper the bat during the first half of Creator/RobinJarvis' ''[[Literature/DeptfordMice The Oaken Throne]]''. Their species are [[FantasticRacism sworn enemies]], and she finds him repulsive. He sees her as nothing but an "uppity tree worshipper". As they get to know each other, however, they fall in love.

* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'', Safi is rather more elegant and aristocratic, whereas Merik is a sailor, so when they're not [[BelligerentSexualTension fighting or kissing]], this is what their interactions look like.

* This sums up ''[[Anime/MazingerZ Kouji Kabuto]]'' and Maria Grace Fleed's relationship in ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'', which might be one of the (if not ''[[TropeMaker the]]'') earliest examples in anime. Considering that Koji is being [[IdiotHero himself]], Maria's behavior is understandable.

* [[BelligerentSexualTension The relationship between]] [[FarmBoy Taran]] and [[HeroesWantRedheads Eilonwy]] in ''The Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'', although the series is peppered liberally with AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther moments, mitigating this somewhat. She initially found him "fascinating" for being an Assistant Pig Keeper in the original ''Chronicles of Prydain'' because she had never met an Assistant Pig Keeper before. In fact, she held a persistently casual attitude towards most everything. Though there was an element of the stated trope present, she didn't judge him less for his station. [[spoiler:Except when she is BrainwashedAndCrazy.]]

* ''Film/TheCuttingEdge'' has a hell of a lot of this trope going on until the very last possible moment.

* Lloyd Alexander seems to have liked this trope, as we also see it from Joy-in-the-Dance toward Lucian in ''The Arkadians.'' The idea that her treatment of him masks romantic feelings seems absurd to him at first, but to the other characters [[EveryoneCanSeeIt it's obvious.]]

* True to a degree of Asuka and Shinji's relationship in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Asuka is often quite the {{Jerkass}} towards Shinji, but it is clear at least some of her meanness towards him stems from the fact, that she is attracted to him ([[CannotSpitItOut not that she would ever admit it]]), but views his passiveness, social ineptitude, and tendency to [[ApologisesALot apologise a lot]] as undesirable traits. It doesn't help that she views their guardian, Misato, as enabling these traits in Shinji by often telling him that he is good enough as he is. Evangelion being what it is, the unhealthy dynamic of this relationship is thoroughly [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]].
