* ''Manga/FairyTail'': Erza used to shower with Gray and Natsu and cares a lot for them, but is made out to have romantic feelings for Jellal that might be returned. In fact the two might of have shared a kiss before Jellal decides to try (and fail) to sink their ship for the sake of their happiness. Juvia had a stalker crush on Gray which eventually evolved to the point where something may or may not be going on between them, and views Lucy as her rival in love. Speaking of Lucy, in addition to her little one sided bit with Juvia, she collects pin-ups of Mirajane, has admitted to having a girl crush on Erza, and has developed a crush on Natsu in an omake when she thought he may have liked him. Natsu should probably move on, since the girl it's heavily implied he had a thing for died two years ago, [[spoiler:or not, now that she's back.]] There's also Loke, who loves to tell Lucy that the power of his love for her is what gives him the ability to protect her. There's also the little bit with Sherry and Lyon, which was about as subtle as Juvia's crush on Gray-or the equally hilarious crush Lyon develops for Juvia-before Sherry developed another relationship with Ren. Sherry's crushes are no where near as cute on the one Levy harbors for Gajeel, though it's up to the fans whether he protects her to fit into the guild better or out of actual feelings. Although the feelings Bisca and Alzack have for each other are actually confirmed, they CanNotSpitItOut in order to confess to one another (until the time skip, that is) and Cana has a crush on Macao. The Manga/FairyTail manga contains a ''lot'' of ShipTease, in every possible direction. The anime adaptation takes all of that, and then adds EVEN MORE.

In fact the two might of have have shared a kiss before Jellal decides to try (and fail) to sink their ship for the sake of their happiness. Erza's definitely shared a kiss with Kagura, but how she feels about that is unclear.

* ''Manga/BungouStrayDogs'' has Dazai Osamu and Nakahara Chuuya, also known as their ready-made ship name 'Soukoku' or 'Double Black'. While both are vocal about their dislike for each other, they were partners prior to the series and the creators had been throwing [[HoYay some ambiguous shades on their relationship]], mostly coming from Dazai's actions towards Chuuya that do not correspond to his [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] tendencies. Official art does nothing but pander to this, [[http://http://bungo-stray-dogs.jp/images/top/main_movi.jpg which includes featuring the two on the very first promotional poster for the upcoming movie]].

** Eren and Armin are VERY close childhood friends and are pretty open about physical contact with each other, to the point where their comrades wondered about them being "more than friends" during their trainee years. Jean, in particular, takes note of Armin and Mikasa's clingyness to Eren. It has also be explicitly shown that they are willing to die in order to save the other.

* Creator/ToeiAnimation is smart about the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' franchise's MultipleDemographicAppeal to {{Yuri Fan}}s. While [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure Nagisa]] and [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar Saki]] had a definite interest in boys, they were never given resolution and had enough screentime for their relationships with Honoka and Mai to be interpreted as RomanticTwoGirlFriendship (and, in Saki's case, there was also some FoeYay with [[DarkMagicalGirl Michiru]]). When ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5'' came along, the first {{Official Couple}}s came with it, leaving Karen and Komachi, a pairing supported by a lot of the yuri fanboys, broken up by canon - so, as soon as that was cemented, in came cute shots of the usually standoffish Karen glomping Kurumi in the ending theme. [[spoiler:And if Kurumi turns out to be Milk, there's plenty more where that came from.]]

** Then there is L and Light and the FoeRomanceSubtext between them. It goes well beyond HoYay and into HomoeroticSubtext -- it is perhaps the most consistent element across all adaptations, equal to the Death Note itself.

* The New Era has some of this for the [[SpinoffBabies offspring of the main characters]]: Sasuke's daughter, Sarada, is hinted to have a crush on Naruto's son, Boruto, in ''Anime/BorutoNarutoTheMovie'' Sarada compliments Boruto's eye color, making him blush, later he makes a DeclarationOfProtection to her which now makes ''her'' blush, and finally there's [[http://68.media.tumblr.com/0eedbf5d829d30653ba2b0c6aca662f8/tumblr_oe40ciMUGj1uq3bnuo8_1280.png this image]] from the Shonen Jump 2017 calendar.

** In ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemistConquerorOfShamballa'', Ed and Winry are reunited with a BigDamnHug. Edward even blushes when Winry hugs him. Winry is also seen thinking of Edward throughout the film and [[spoiler:is one of the few who see Edward leave.]]

* The only character to ever make Roy blush on-screen was Ed. In ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemistConquerorOfShamballa'', it is shown that Roy has spent the last few years angsting about [[spoiler:Edward's disappearance]]. Others mistake him for being depressed about being separate from Riza when he was really thinking of Ed. Riza barely even plays a role in the film, instead Roy ditches her with barely a word to go with the Elric's.

* Nara Shikamaru and Temari from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. Particularly ship-tease worthy are their scenes in ''Shippuden'', where the only member of the Rookie Nine besides Sakura that Naruto sees before leaving to help Gaara is Shikamaru... and all his appearances are partnered up with Temari, and that's not even getting into the actual interactions the two have in those scenes. Naruto even asked them if they were on a date which they both denies. [[spoiler: They eventually get together and start a family]]

* Edward and Winry's relationship is hard to pin in the 2003 anime. It's never 100% certain if Winry is an ImpliedLoveInterest or if she and Ed are LikeBrotherAndSister. They still have a fair chunk of teasing though:

** An OVA showed the IdenticalGrandchildren of Edward and Alphonse. While the OVA is likely non-canon, it's unusual in that one of the siblings looks like ''Winry''. This implies that either Winry [[spoiler:somehow made it through the Gate]] and married one of the brothers or one of them got with [[spoiler:Winry's alter counterpart]] instead.

* Much of Winry's screentime with Edward from the manga is replaced with her and Sheska together. They form a friendship despite their age difference which contains its fair share of LesYay.

* While Roy and Riza's relationship isn't given the focus it has in the manga, the two are still portrayed as close and have a lot of teasing:
** The most infamous example is the scene where Riza seems to be having an EroticDream only to be awoken by her dog licking her feet. It's never mentioned who the dream was about but it was most likely Roy due to her being close to few other characters.
** The final episode near the end features Riza (who has [[LettingHerHairDown her hair down]] for the first time on-screen) feeds Roy an apple in bed. Roy strokes her hair while commenting how the world is imperfect but beautiful nevertheless.
** The series' credits depict a scene where an [[NotSoStoic unusually happy]] Riza is shopping with Roy which looks pretty romantic.
** As with Ed and Winry, official artwork often features Roy and Riza in romantic situations.
** Though not actually shown in-series, a piece of artwork from TheMovie shows the alter versions of Roy and Riza. Even their [[spoiler:Earth]] counterparts are close, despite it being unlikely that Riza's alter was ever in the military.
