* In ''LightNovel/TheDevilIsAPartTimer'', Emilia Justina the Hero trained all her life to slay the evil, demonic overlord whose invasion [[DoomedHometown destroyed her hometown]] and [[YouKilledMyFather killed her father]]. Thus, when she tracks him down in [[MageInManhattan Shibuya]] after he escaped her assault on his castle, she is very annoyed to discover him acting like a perfectly law-abiding NiceGuy.

It turns out that although he was leading a demon army in a war against humanity, he ''wasn't'' doing it out of some kind of genocidal hatred, and has nothing against the humans of this world who are completely uninvolved in his centuries-old conflict. It takes a while for Emilia to come to terms with the fact that her side [[LightIsNotGood wasn't all good]].

* In the ''{{Ben 10}}'' fanfic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4267279/1/Hero-High-Sphinx-Academy Hero High: Sphinx Academy]], the biggest problem Gwen Tennyson has throughout the story is she can't bring herself to hate the BigBad who was her boyfriend in the previous story [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3875254/1/Hero-High-Earth-style Hero High: Earth Style]]. She knows he plans horrible things for humanity, even though [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans it is to ultimately save humanity in the long run]], and that they are currently fighting against him to stop it, but due to how he was genuinely nice to her, cared about her, and was pretty much the only person outside of her family that appreciated her for her intelligence instead of shunned her for it, she just can't bring herself to truly hate him. [[spoiler: This even causes her to go to his side for a short time and in the DistantFinale accept his marriage proposal]].

* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'': Nagisa and Youko suffer no small amount of angst because of this. Both of them have feelings for the same boy, and both of them have a ''lot'' of trouble viewing each other as romantic rivals because their friendship is so strong, meaning that neither one of them will pursue a relationship for fear of hurting the other girl. [[spoiler: They eventually get over it, with Youko being the "winner".]]

* Both Physis and Jomy have this reaction to Keith Anyan in the last two episodes of ''TowardTheTerra'', each separately commenting that even though Keith has been doing everything he can to exterminate their race, they can't bring themselves to hate him. In both cases the most probable answer to WhyCantIHateYou seems to be "Because he already hates himself enough for both."

** In a non-romantic example, Harry seems determined to hate Professor Grubbly-Plank, a substitute teach who is, annoyingly, more competent and beloved than his [[IntergenerationalFriendship close friend]] [[FluffyTamer Hagrid]].

* In ''Literature/HarryPotter,'' there's a low-key version between [[TheHero Harry]] and [[LovableJock Cedric]], who's not only in competition with Harry, but winds up dating the girl that Harry has a crush on. The thing is, Cedric is so legitimately nice that Harry can't think of much but "that dumb pretty boy could have given me a ''better'' hint on how to win the next part of the game."

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has Undyne, a high ranking member of the Royal Guard who is tasked to seek and kill any human she comes across to harvest their soul for the king. If you encounter her on the neutral or pacifist path, she has the intent to kill you, but she comes up with excuses that justifies her actions in the hopes that her (made up) views on humans are correct so that she won't feel guilty in killing you. Should you spare Undyne and take up Papyrus' offer in befriending Undyne, you find out that she thinks some humans are actually pretty cool according to her materials (anime) and that you remind her a lot of [[spoiler: Asgore, who she got the order from in regards to taking human souls]]. She eventually decides that hating you is no longer possible and you're actually pretty cool. Should you kill anyone after befriending her, Papyrus calls you to tell you that Undyne not only hates your guts, but she would destroy you if you ever showed up again. If you're on a no mercy run, the encounter with Undyne is more or less the same, but since she sees how much of a cold blooded murderer you are, she states that she used to think humans were cool until you came along and now she has a legitimate reason to hate and kill you.

* From ''Manga/SpiritCircle'', this is how Kouko feels towards Fuuta. In their past lives, Fuuta's preincarnation Fortuna single-handedly caused a great disaster for his own purposes. Kouko, who remembered that past life, vowed to destroy Fortuna's soul so that [[DeaderThanDead he would never eve nreincarnate again]]. However, present day Fuuta is such a NiceGuy that she feels conflicted about it.
