to:

* ''FanFic/ToHellAndBackArrowverse'': Downplayed with Oliver Queen. He understands the concept on an intellectual level, and is by no means aromantic or even asexual, but differentiating between familial/platonic love and romantic love is where he struggles. For example, he didn't realize he might have feelings for Laurel until Tommy accused him of "putting the moves" on her, and it was only by comparing how he felt around to Laurel to how he felt around Nyssa that he realized he might have feelings for the latter as well.

* The Daughters of Aku from ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' were raised from birth to be assassins, and have no real idea of life outside their cult's headquarters. When hunting for Jack, they come across a female deer foraging for food, and are confused as to what it is. They then spot a male deer, and assume that because it has antlers resembling Aku's horns it's one of his minions come to devour the smaller doe. They can only stare in shock and confusion as it nuzzles the doe instead, one even scaring them away due to her uncertainty.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'': Archer asks Krieger's AI androids to define "love" when Krieger claims they are capable of passing the TuringTest. The androids are incapable of answering and start to violently malfunction, prompting someone to shoot them. It's PlayedForLaughs the first two times, [[PlayedForDrama but it stops being funny]] when [[spoiler: Archer goes through the same malfunction when proposing to Lana, exposing himself as an android and proving that the real Archer was indeed the one face-down in the pool after being shot and left for dead]].

* ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'': Fauna points out that the few things Malificent doesn't understand are love, kindess, and the [[GoodFeelsGood joys of helping others]]. Hence why Flora points out that if they shelter the princess themselves (selflessly helping someone at their own risk), Malificent wouldn't be able to expect it so easily.
