{{Jewelry}}, [[SomethingAboutARose Roses]], and {{Chocolate|OfRomance}}s. Valentine's Day (technically Saint Valentine's Day) is a big deal, and boy do writers know it! The holiday on February 14 has been used a million times in all sorts of media to bring up love and romance. White Day is a similar holiday observed in Japan and South Korea on March 14. In some countries, it's normal to give Valentine's Day cards or gifts to friends, whereas in other countries you'd only give a Valentine's Day present to someone you are romantically interested in, leading to a bit of ValuesDissonance for certain audiences.

In fiction, characters face romantic challenges or break new ground on episodes that revolve around Valentine's Day. A Valentine's Day Episode plot typically centers around hooking up, or with struggling to find the right gift, or with someone ([[DoubleStandard usually the man]], usually on some kind of comedy) forgetting about the holiday and struggling to find a suitable gift. There are any number of LoveTropes, comedic love tropes and SexTropes that are common to Valentine-centric plots. Can be fertile ground for ShippingTropes. And likely to be a pivotal part of a RomanceArc.

While many Valentine's Day Episodes will usually air just before or on Valentine's Day, this is not always the case. To be consider a Valentine's Day Episode a work needs to both explicitly mention Valentine's Day and have a plot focused on [[LoveTropes love, romance, and relationship]], when that hasn't been the sole focus previously.

Also in many cases in the media, though Valentine's Day is in the winter (at some latitudes, anyway) it can instead [[WeatherDissonance appear to be spring]], with no sign of bare trees or snow anywhere, compared to real life.

For other holidays see ChristmasEpisode, HalloweenEpisode and ThanksgivingEpisode.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* An episode of the harem comedy ''Manga/AiKora'' has Maeda trying to smuggle home a chocolate statue made in the shape of a girl with all his "ideal parts". Unfortunately it's on Valentine's Day, and all the girls he knows [[ThroughHisStomach try and ply him with chocolates]] (and lots of it, in the cases of [[RichBitch Ayame]] and [[FeminineWomenCanCook Kirino]]). He eventually eats so much chocolate he passes out, and awakens to find his chocolate sculpture has melted.
* ''Franchise/{{Jewelpet}}''
** ''Anime/{{Jewelpet 2009}}'': Episode 46 shows how Rinko is coping after having been kidnapped at the end of the previous episode. She's doing it by making chocolate in her freezing cell with the help of an enemy, just because it's Valentine's and that enemy is suffering from lovesickness.
** ''Anime/JewelpetTwinkle'': Episode 45, in which Ruby and Labra try to help Akari get together with Yuuma by slipping a love potion into the chocolate she made for him. HilarityEnsues when they lose the chocolate and it gets eaten by five boys, who proceed to chase Akari around the school.
** ''Anime/JewelpetSunshine'': Episode 45, in which Kanon and Ruby compete in making the best chocolates for Mikage. Ironically, the episode ends with TheReveal that [[spoiler:Kanon and Mikage are siblings.]]
* Chapter 10 of ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' has Tohru trying to give Kobayashi chocolate that was spiked with a love potion, but Kobayashi was GenreSavvy enough to avoid eating it (though she still ends up eating it by accident later on). The anime adapted it as part of the OVA, [[AdaptationExpansion adding in several scenes for the rest of the cast]]. Kanna's SpinOff also had it's own Valentine's Day chapter where [[PuppyLove she makes chocolate for Saikawa]].
* Episode 31 of ''Manga/NurseAngelRirikaSOS'' is a great demonstration of the "obligation chocolate"/"true feeling chocolate" dynamic in action, and features Ririka's friend Karin as she gets [[LoveConfession confessed]] to by a boy from school that she had never given any thought to before.
* One chapter of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' is set on Valentine's day. Akane hasn't bought any chocolate yet so her friends wonder if she'll give Ranma some homemade ones. He suddenly shows up and says to just buy some instead of [[LethalChef making them herself]]. She kicks him out shouting she has no intention of giving him any. Later she gets asked a favor from a grandmother and her granddaughter to give some chocolates to a kid that once saved the child's doll. [[HilarityEnsues Turns out it was Ranma]].
* One chapter of ''Manga/SgtFrog'' has Momoka trying (and failing) to work up the nerve and/or find the opportunity to offer her crush Fuyuki some home-made chocolates on Valentine's Day. Meanwhile, Fuyuki earns the jealous ire of his classmates when all the girls in the school keep giving him chocolate. He's profoundly disappointed when he finds out all the chocolates are intended for [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer his sister Natsumi]], and equally delighted when Momoka shows up at his house with her gift of chocolate.
* A recurring running gag in every Valentine's Day chapter in ''Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku'' which Kotetsu always demand chocolate from Akane.
* ''Manga/WanderingSon'' had at least one Valentine's Day chapter in middle school. Mako tries to give Oka a "friendship chocolate" but Oka gets grossed out.
* One episode of ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' has both of Nate's male friends getting confessions and chocolates from a girl on Valentine's Day. Nate becomes jealous and ilogically assumes that the reason they got chocolates from girls and he didn't is because a Yo-kai's screwing with him. [[spoiler:He's right.]]
* ''Manga/KimiNiTodoke'': The plot of the anime's second season starts with a Valentine's Day Episode, which is also the last episode of the main cast's first school year. Despite the normally sweet romantic tone of the series that the first season provided, Sawako's inability to give Kazehaya some chocolate heavily influences their relationship negatively. The impact of that failed Valentine's Day is felt throughout the entire season.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* The ''ComicBook/HackSlash'' and ''ComicBook/BombQueen'' crossover was supposed to be this, though apparently due to delays causing it to be released after February the holiday aspect was dropped.
* Marvel once produced a number of ''I (Heart) Marvel'' one-shots; the Spider-Man themed one, "Web of Love", was all about Spidey trying to think of a good Valentine's Day present for his wife, Mary Jane. In the end he had Tony Stark make a pair of web-shooting bracelets for her.
* ''ComicBook/TheBooksOfMagic'' had a Valentine's Day story called "This Is Not About Chocolate", in which Eros/Cupid attempted to strike back against his modern image as a cherub in a nappy (and by analogy, the comercialisation of romance in general).
* Issue #24 of ''ComicBook/ThePowerpuffGirls'', "The Bride Of Mojo Jojo," had Mojo seeking love on Valentine's Day. But when a dating service fails him, he uses material from discarded weapons and his own DNA to create his own bride a la ''The Bride Of Frankenstein.'' The girls, in a subplot early on, entertain ideas of what kind of mother they'd want.
* Issue #12 of ''Comicbook/MsMarvel2014'', there is a Valentine's day ball, and Bruno tries to invite Kamala to it... even this would spell disaster, but Loki also arrives and has way too much fun PlayingCyrano (badly), spiking the punch with TruthSerum, and being as much of a troll as possible in general.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ScriptFic ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'' has "Insanity is In The Air", which gave some CharacterDevelopment to [[TheGenericGuy Andy.]]

** The story "Hefty, The Luckiest Smurf" begins on Valentine's Day, with Empath giving Smurfette the present of a mock wedding ceremony in the Imaginarium with Hefty as her imagined bridegroom. The rest of the story centers on Empath seeing Smurfette in an alternate timeline falling in love with and marrying Hefty when Empath is forced to return to Psychelia, and how he deals with it after he finds out.
** "My Unsmurfy Valentine" also takes place on Valentine's Day, on which the rogue cherub Eros decides to ruin it by firing lust arrows that make whoever's struck by them lust after whoever they desire, even if it's of the same sex. (Given that the village consists mostly of male Smurfs, it was mostly same-sex pairings, with Papa Smurf going after Smurfette when he was hit with the lust arrow.)
* The main premise in ''Hunting'' the first fic of ''The Matrix'' and ''Supernatural'' crossover slashfic ''Fanfic/HuntingSeries'' is Dean forgetting it's Valentine's Day, until Neo remindes him of it. Eventually, it ends up kicking off one of the main pairings, the OneTrueThreesome, of the series.
* The sixth episode of ''Fanfic/TheChildOfLove'' is a Valentine's Day chapter. Asuka tries to give Shinji some home-made chocolates on Valentine's Day without everybody noticing.
* ''Fanfic/TheOneILoveIs'': The story begins during a Valentine's Day. As Asuka is trying to work up the nerve to give Shinji some home-made chocolates, Rei gives Shinji a chocolate box, earning Asuka's wrath and kick starting the plot.
* ''Fanfic/StoriesAndTalesFromDimension63'': Chapter 17 is set on Valentines Day.
* ''Franchise/TheSimpsons'' fanfic "[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11768519/1/A-Simpsons-Valentine A Simpsons Valentine]]" takes place in the future but explores Homer and Marges' love life throughout their relationship. It was published a few weeks before Valentine's Day.
* ''WebAnimation/TheMostPopularGirlsInSchool'' fanfic "[[https://www.quotev.com/story/10726565/To-Trisha-from-Trisha-MPGiS To Trisha from Trisha]]", in which the premise is the Trishas sending secret Valentine's cards to each other.

* OlderThanPrint: The first known connection between romance and Valentine's Day was made in the 14th century, by Creator/GeoffreyChaucer.
* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' has had two, neither of which were included in [[Film/HarryPotter the film versions]]:
** In ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets Chamber of Secrets]]'', Lockhart sets up an ill-conceived Valentine's celebration which [[SmallNameBigEgo annoys everyone but himself]]. Ginny sends Harry a singing valentine using Lockhart's "card-carrying cupids", but it backfires badly.
** In ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Order of the Phoenix]]'', Harry takes Cho Chang to a date on Valentine's day. This also doesn't go so well.
* ''Literature/TheSavannahReidMysteries'' book ''Sugar and Spite''. Savannah laments somewhat over the fact that her only Valentine's Day plan is to assist her cop buddy Dirk with a stakeout. When Dirk's ex-wife shows up and is murdered with his gun, Savannah spends the days leading up to the holiday working to [[ClearTheirName clear his name]] and find the real killer, comforting Dirk along the way and realizing, not for the first time, that her feelings for him might be a little more complicated than just friendship. At the end he thanks her for her support by splitting a heart-shaped box of chocolates with her.
